Review of chapter "Chapter 1" from UnscathedAnimal
This is very well written and suitably dramatic and even though I only know OF Highlander rather than KNOW it, I was still looking forward to reading through this fic and then moving on to your current stuff.

I say "was" because you did a thing that took this from "awesome" to "tolerable" in pretty much a single line.

What part of "Once a Slayer, always a Slayer" was unclear in the description? The mini-slayers were set to "On". You could have said that it was a one time deal and the next generation would end up with just one slayer again (after all the current ones were finally gone), but instead you took the powers away. That should not be possible. There is no "off" switch.

So... yeah. If I manage to finish this fic, I'll write another review at the end to give my impressions on the story. It IS very well written, so you can probably expect a positive review at that point.

Assuming I can just make it past THIS. And ignore it after the fact.

Comments from author:
Huh... I don't recall 'Once a Slayer, always a Slayer' being as much of a fixed idea in BtVS as you seem to. Perhaps you're recalling something in one of the episodes I haven't seen as many times or have just placed importance in something I didn't recognise as being vital. All I can think of is the fact that Buffy remained a Slayer after she died and Faith was called, something I do not see as being incompatible with the altered mythos created in this story... but everything is a matter of opinion (and it's the different opinions of BtVS viewers which have prompted the variety of fun stories we all love to read).

I'd be interested to know your thoughts on the rest if you choose to continue, though I'd fully understand if not (and not be offended). I know there are instances in which competent fan fiction writers take a certain tack on things which strike me as too wrong to keep on reading - for me it's usually more to do with characterisation than the mythology/metaphysics. If you don't continue then have fun finding a story which better meets your thoughts on the series, there are so many good ones out there, and thank you for sharing your thoughts about my little tale.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from bookworm
I came across one of your stories on the Latest page and decided to go back to the beginning; I'm quite intrigued by this, and interested to see what happens if/when she meets other Immortals than the headhunter she left for dead. From what you've described, she isn't one, quite, but there are certainly similarities. Also, some of them might have a few ideas on how to work with/control her flashbacks and new powers. Onward!
Comments from author:
Back to the beginning? That's a dangerous thing to attempt with a fanfic writer. When I started out I barely knew what I was doing (and I think it shows).

You're right that she isn't quite the same as other immortals. The next story in this series (as a pose to the snippets which directly follow this) involves her meeting more recognisable immortals, although it is at present unfinished. I also have segments written which better explain her situation... I just need to write the bits in between...

Edit: Oh and thanks for your comments! I was so surprised to find someone reading this that I forgot my manners.

Review of chapter "Prologue" from ChefJackButler
This is an interesting idea, but it occurs to me that it would have made more sense to have Faith and not Buffy be the focus of the story. After all, the mantle of "Chosen One" passed from Buffy to Kendra and from Kendra to Faith. Its Faith who is the Chosen One, not Buffy.
Comments from author:
In this version of the mythos there's actually no reason 'Chosen One' couldn't be any of the potentials or Slayers. If in every generation there are many slayers, more potentials, but within those two only one chosen one (taking the show tag line which gave me the idea literally) then any of them could be it. Here the /slayer/ mantle might pass between those called but the /Chosen One/ remains the same individual (whether alive or dead). I hope this was clarified for you if you chose to read on.

As for why I chose Buffy when any slayer would do... I guess I like her as a main character and I wanted to play a bit with her back story in light of what I've done to her.

Thanks for the review - it's nice to know people still find this old thing.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from Amai
I hadn't checked back in a while, but I was so very glad to see it updated. I had worried. And I'd stay, flinging about compliments and charming things, but I was very excited to find that there's more in the series, and so, cn't linger in the reviewing. :)
Comments from author:
lol I'm glad you found it again, it did take me forever to get this out, but its always nice to find that people who come back to it still enjoy it =D

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from PATM
I almost missed the resolution to the meeting of the Slayer versus Broadsword and I picked up
the story through "Choices".Having the complete through line of the story is a treat to read.
I loved it and "Choices" a worthy followup in a multi chapter narrative.
Comments from author:
Choices would probably be a little confusing without this I suppose? Hopefully it all makes more sense now. I hope to be continuing with Choices soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from (Past Donor)Fritolays
Great story! I'm a little sad she had to leave Faith behind. i think Faith being with her on her journey could have been a good thing. Helped her keep some sort of control. I can't wait to read the rest to this story :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from (Past Donor)Jolinar
I think you've managed to end this story at a perfect place and in all honesty, the entire story seemed quite well paced too. The idea that the Scoobies were aware all along is very sad, and Buffy's interaction with Faith was touching and bittersweet. Its a great place to end this part of the story. The uncertainty ahead and Buffy's need to learn more about herself and her new gifts seems perfect beginning for the sequel. The problem is, is that now, some of us are dying to find out whats in store for our Immortal Slayer.

Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
Dont worry... all I have to do is go over the first chapters phrasing and formatting. As I said we're getting onto some original bits that were written 3 years ago... I'm kinda worried there's going to be some crazy jumping around in styles of writing.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from gigi
I love the story, especially how Buffy gets more powerful. I also like how she now knows more languages and demons than Giles because they always made her seem like a dumb blonde in the show. She couldn't have been as successful as she was if she was really that stupid. I also like how she thinks of herself more instead of trying to please her lousy friends and whiny sister. It made me sad that just when Buffy and Faith are finally getting along, that Buffy had to leave. I hope to see more of their relationship in the sequel and I hope you post it soon. I also hope that it crosses over with Highlander more and that Buffy actually learns and participates in the Game. All in all, good job.
