Review of chapter "Restructuring" from rtdsnine
I can agree with what made Oz such a dangerous foe. But I have to disagree with you calling Kennedy a hero,that one I have no sadness in me for dying. Actually I could see her working with Lionel in order to gain more power.Great story by the way.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from Midnmax
Very good. Oz does make a good bad guy, though anti-hero would be accurate discription. Reminds me a lot of the Punisher. Same MO, same willingness to accept/cause collateral damage. Another interesting ending is if Oz would have headed off into the sunset to continue the job against other bad guys who the law doesn't / can't touch.

I don't know if it is even accurate to call Oz evil. He certainly is at war with the Luthors and willing to kill foot soldiers.

2 things I disagree with:

I don't think Oz would have risked Faiths life. I think he would have knocked her out, dropped her outside the cave, and then killed himself.

I also think he should have been buried next to Willow. While the attacks were public and bloody, you never mentioned any real evidence pointing towards Oz. And I think that the Scoobies would be incredibly grateful that their dead had been avenged. And the Acoobies have never been too concerned with outside opinion. If anything, Ozs actions would just increase the respect/fear towards the IWC since it demonstrated the depth of the possible retaliation possible. With the willingness to go scorched earth, some groups become too dangerous to mess with.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from (Recent Donor)draconin
A fascinating story - the only one that I've read with evil!Oz. Or perhaps that should be grieving/outofcontrol!Oz, I'm not sure. Either way the body count was rather horrifying.

I must admit that I felt sad that he didn't get a headstone. I read your comment on an earlier review that said this and, although I take your point, it seems likely to me IMHO that the Slayer/Watcher graves would probably be in a site that was not on public view anyway.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from JEHayes
I wouldn't have expected a story that started with half the main characters dieing to be so good, but it was. Evil Oz was scary but sort of a bitch. Revenge is one thing. Suicide is one thing. Killing Faith? That's really crossing the line in my book.

The story was really touching at the end there. Really made me feel that stage of grief that you feel when you're walking away from a funeral. Also, you made me like Buffy. I never like Buffy.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from XanLickquidluv
Rather violent story, took a while to get into it with where it started in the existing action.
Once I was in it, however, really enjoyed how much thinking went into melding the two
fandoms together and great surprise at using Oz for going over the edge with the vengeance.
Like how Buffy took charge and got everyone's shit together, and the first time Andrew's
geekiness was used for the good of everyone. If anyone could push Oz this far over the edge,
it would be Lionel Luthor. It's also a nice change from Xander taking on this role.
Thank you for writing this.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from Duchess
Very angsty and moving. I liked the place they picked to bury their dead, but they missed one. Fallen or not, Oz deserved to be buried with the others, beside Willow at least, since he avenged her murder. *nodding decisively*
Comments from author:
Hmmm, I hadn't thought of that and the emotional part of me agrees, but the logical part (and the part looking for a cop-out for not writing it that way) thinks that it would be too much of a public link between Oz and the Scooby gang. Remember, Oz was going out of his way to get the press' attention.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from spacey
wow. very nice. i, too, like how chapter one ended but i can see why, with nothing following it, people would have wanted more.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from WhiteWolf
very impressive how Buffy took charge.

I like how Lex behaved.

Faith was cool and Oz. I can believe that he would go after Lionel, but going over inocent people? I'm not sure. but you made it convincing.

Review of chapter "Restructuring" from CPTSkip
Wow! Now this was a kickbutt story, emotionally. Nicely done all around with good characterizations and a very interesting plot. But as much as I liked it, I really don't want to read more about this very sad future. Unless you do decide to write it and then I will read it because I trust you as an author.

Review of chapter "Odd Side Out" from Zira
I don't understand why Lionel was after the Slayers in the first place, but I understand why Oz wanted revenge. Will Buffy and Xander recover, and will Faith get out of the cave alive? All your devoted readers will just have to tune in next time to find out!
Comments from author:
Sorry, I didn't make that clearer. Lionel was not after the Slayers per se. He was after the information of magic and such and was keeping a Slayer captive as leverage. When he realized that he couldn't control the brains of the Watchers (ie. Willow, Giles, and Dawn) he killed them.

Review of chapter "Odd Side Out" from FaithDaria
Yes! I love this story. I've stumbled across a few Evil! Oz stories, but they're usually incredibly out of character, and designed to make another character (I won't name names) look better by comparison. Excellent work, can't wait to see how it ends.

Review of chapter "Odd Side Out" from Lucinda
wow. Dark, kind of nasty, and completely different.

and still well written. The sparse style goes nicely with the dark and painful feel of the subject matter, letting the readers imagination play in the spaces between the words
