Review of chapter "Acceptance" from Angelfirenze
Review:
It's not over! I feel like Illyria, here. I am joyful -- well, sort of. My Buffy-ship preference confusion aside, though, I'm totally happy at this very moment.

Review of chapter "Denial" from Angelfirenze
Review:
Oh, holy crap, I feel like screaming. There are tears , I think. I'm kind of numb but my face is contortoring and I really think there are tears.

I'm almost afraid to read the rest of this. *is honestly surprised I'm not sniffling yet*

Review of chapter "Acceptance" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Oh, BEAUTIFUL!

I particularly loved Wesley's channeling of "The Princess Bride"'s Wesley, going from mostly dead to rising from his death bed with an 'As you wish' on his lips. Wesley and this new improved Illyria have interesting times ahead of them.

And I'm SO glad that Buffy has Spike to help her get through the return to normal girl status (and perhaps keep her from getting killed the first time she finds someone in trouble). In a way, Buffy's getting her own "Shanshu", even if it wasn't quite what she wanted or how she'd imagined.

Review of chapter "Acceptance" from ShyBob
Review:
'Tis a far, far better ending than Joss gave us. Love your Illyria characterization, as well as the authentic voice you give the others.

Review of chapter "Acceptance" from arkeus
Review:
Very good, though the powers controlling the slayers after the spell is kinda something i have already seen, though it makes sense... in the sense they want balance. I just wonder why *buffy* would agree to this balance. After all, this could be an opportunity to make "good" last, or at least "good as we know it".

Edit: Yeah, sorry to review something so old :/
Anyway, i understand what buffy saw. It's just, from the way i see it, the bad guys can win pretty easily, but there is no way for the "good guys" to. I am not sure how far, in this fic or in the verse canon, the first was "allowed to come back", or how at all it was done. Was it done by the PTB because they do want balance, like they all of a sudden made an active effort to help the first, and so on? Or is a "natural reaction"? But, if so, why the *heck* is the balance so naturally easy on the bad side?

OH, Found what i saw which was similar...It is an excellent, older fic, by paburke, "changing the death toll", iirc.
Comments from author:
Where have you already seen that? I think if you look at the date of this fic, mine may have come first. Seriously, you're reviewing something I wrote more than two years ago.

Buffy agreed to the removal of powers because she recognized that (at least in the world of this fic) holding onto the powers, while "good" in the short term, would be very, very bad long term. I thought my logic here held together decently well; if the First's release was a reaction to just Buffy holding onto her powers, and the law firm's ramped up operations including the release of the Black Thorn's legions were an allowed reaction to just one year of the Slayerettes having theirs (at least in this fic), then how much might the damage increase over time?

Review of chapter "Acceptance" from BloodOfAReptile
Review:
When the end of Angel came, I was in such a state of shock I refused to read any fanfic that dealt with it.

I've just now started reading many of the "fix-it" fics...

And I have to say that yours has been - by far - the best.

In one fell swoop, you fixed so many of the glaring plot holes that had been left open and packaged it in an incredibly well-written work.

Excellent job.

Review of chapter "Acceptance" from Geyer
Review:
Thanks for this story. It makes the end of NFA a lot easier to bear. I agree about the balance requiring just one Slayer--it never made sense that having two Slayers would cause the problem and having dozens or hundreds wouldn't make matters worse.

Not something I ever would have imagined. Wonderful I/Wes. Now if you could have only offered up just Kennedy to the sacrificial powers......
