Whatever happened to Piper, hm??? Other than that, the story is quite interesting!! Enough for me to read the rest of the parts!

Review of chapter "Chapter 12: Spellbinding" from MarcusSLazarus
Intriguing bit of work, to say the least.

True, you twist around continuity for both shows a GREAT deal for no apparent reason- Buffy cheating on Angel with Spike, PAIGE being the middle sister rather than Piper-, but hey; I'm an Angel/Paige fan, so you automatically win back the points you might have otherwise lost just by having those two together.

I have to admit, I am DEFINITELY looking forward to seeing where this goes...

Review of chapter "Chapter 12: Spellbinding" from DawnDreamer
I had to read the entire story before I could review this fanfic and I have to say it was a sad story. I was so caught up with the way Prue died that it was as if I felt the two sisters pain. Currently I am reading the third installment and will review the second one soon. Please keep on writing

Review of chapter "Chapter 10: Strength in Numbers." from purrfus
Having Prue attracted to Spike, Paige attracted to Angel, and Phoebe attracted to Leo certainly mixes everything up and offers so much opportunity for even more creativity.

As this is a crossover and therefore automatically AU almost anything goes. I am however a little confused about Paige. If the story was using Paige instead of Piper as an additional mixup up I could understand it. In this case as the personality, powers, and career interests attributed to Paige seem to all be Piper's, I can't understand it. Did you decide to merge the 2 characters and perhaps have it come out later that Paige is really the whitelighter's daughter?

This chapter has some problems which impacted the readability of the story. Wesley says Buffy is in Sunnydale in Chicago. While a town inside of a City is possible, nothing previously written in the story supported the rearranging of US geography. Later in the chapter Buffy is in Italy. This section of the chapter just yanks a reader out of the moment and makes it difficult to get back into the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One: Tell me a story..." from Dragonlove
OK - I have never before given a bad rating to a story before, but I really wanted to explain why I did not like this. I only read the first chapter and realized that I was not going to like the story. I then skipped to your 2nd and 3rd stories in the series to see if maybe I should give it a chance - but no.

Biggest complaint - Why are you calling Piper - Paige? I mean, you even gave her all the characteristics of Piper, so why change the name? You obviously know who Piper is (if your screen name is any indication). It was too confusing for me to read. I kept picturing Rose McGowan whenever I saw the name Paige and just could not image her as the character of Piper.

I then skipped ahead to the 3rd story in your series to see if the name Piper came up, and after skimming the first 3 chapters, I still did not find it. But I did see you had Phoebe and Leo as a couple. That is just wrong. Even if you were going to call Piper, Paige, then you should still have kept her and Leo together, like on the show.

I guess my complaints are based on my own personal preferences and not on your writing skills. I did not read enough to judge your skills as a writer. However, I did read enough to know that this is not a story I will enjoy. I am sorry if this sounds harsh or mean. I am trying to be constructive. This is not meant to be a flame. I just wanted you to know why I did not like the story.
