Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from LordSia
Review:
Cool, pity you've ended it there. It was short, disjointed, and the language was mostly correct, but nothing great. The fight scenes were short and to the point, but not very descriptive.
All in all, ok, but far from great.

Review:
sequel needs a sequel
Comments from author:
Sigh, I'm working on it. Things have been hectic for me lately. RL has sorta taken a front seat for awhile. But I hope to get more time to finish the fics I've started.

Glad you liked the story, thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from Duskie
Review:
God, I love the train. I was so unexpected it was hilarious.
Comments from author:
Glad to hear it. I wanted something that 'could' happen with that power, and with the wackyness of both Btvs & Charmed, a train falling from the sky on your enemy 'is' possiable.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from Infinix
Review:
Ah this is just begging for a sequal. Please? Does Xander ever meet the Charmed Ones? How is the mayor dealt with? All things inquiring minds would like to know.
Comments from author:
I'm still working on it. RL has been pretty besy for me, if you read my comments you'd know why. lol Anyway, of course if I wrote a follow up Xander would have to meet the Charmed Ones. That goes without saying.

Wont tell you how the Mayor would be taken care of. That'd be such a spoiler, and I just don't do that. ; )

Glad you liked the fic.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from AnthonyR
Review:
good story. you should continue it, maybe as a crossover with charmed or something.
Comments from author:
Sigh, I had plans to write a follow up to this story but RL sorta snuck up on me. I'm not sure how many people 'here' know what I've been up to for the last year. Probably those who go to my yahoo group, but I dunno.

Anyway, I joined the United States Marine Corps back in May. So with bootcamp, MCT = Marine Combat Traing, Mos School, and now my duty station (Which is in Japan), I've been sorta running ragged.

But I'm still trying to write. I haven't given up on any of my fics.

And I just heard this story was nominated. So I'm sorta excited about that. I hope everyone votes my way, lol.

Anyway, glad to see people are still reading this fic. Thanks for your review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from daratrazanoff
Review:
Great story, are you going to do a sequel, bring in the Charmed Ones, maybe pair him with Phoebe, as she would be about the same age as Xander at the beginning of Charmed. And do the Charmed Ones have similar life span to Wizards? Could you please write a sequel and have Xander take or steal the powers of the warlock he just killed? And others powers? I'd really like to read about Xander having super strength. Once again this is a great story and I'd like to read a sequel. Thanks.
Comments from author:
I have had thoughts of a sequel, but I can't say it'll be soon. Yes, Phoebe is already the same age as Xander in the start of Charmed, thought shes a little older.

But I have no plans on shipping them together. Or shipping him with any of the sisters, as of yet. But if I did, it'd be with Piper. Shes my favorite sister.

And No, witchs don't have the same lifespan as Wizards. Wizards are sorta like demons and whitelighters, they have to be 'killed' in order to die. They don't age and die like normal people and witches.

Xander needs to get a handle on his own powers, before he goes out looking to take the powers of his enemys.

Thanks for the review, glad you liked the story.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from Kirallie
Review:
Cool! Can't really see Snyder as Xander's dad but hey. More please!!!
Comments from author:
Well, I always thought there was something weird between them. I mean, when Xander was under attack from the first slayer, it was Snyder that was his guide

There was just something going on there.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from Duchess
Review:
Hey, I went from reading a fic with teensy chapters to this story with one chapter that is mega sized. LOL

I like your story idea of Xander being a wizard, but Snyder as his father grossed me out to the max! *insert heebie jeebie fit and giggle here* This is just too darn weird and the fact that he's going to desert Xander now when the boy has been outed as a wizard and a target put on his back is just sooooo disgusting! The coward!!! He cares far more for himself than for his own son. Grrrr

Hm, when Faith wakes up from her coma this time, will she remember who put her there? And will she be any different, read better, than canon? *hoping so*

I hope you continue this story one day, but don't think the next chapter has to be as long as your first, okay? :)
Comments from author:
Well, I'm glad I got you to branch out into a story with some real length. Takes awhile to get down, but it has a little more detail then short fics.

Yes, Snyder as 'anyones' father is gross and un-natural. But as Xander's dad? Well, you can't pick your family. As they both know now.

Snyder was 'evil' more or less on Charmed, wanting to be the new Source of all evil. So leaving his son to fiend for his own sounds aroubd his ally.

Yes, Faith will awake again. Shes a slayer after all, and wasn't expected to survive the fall and the attack Buffy gave her. But she did. I can't see her staying down from Xander's 'accidental' attack.

I hope to continue this story one day too, that is, if my Bunny hits me, and if I can ever get a new computer of my own.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from Mira
Review:
I LOVE the Charmed tie in with the wizard Snyder thing! Total brilliance. Other than that your spelling could be better, however it doesn't really take away too much from the nifty story so no worries. :D
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it. I didn't know how everyone would take the idea of Snyder as 'anyones' father, let alone Xander's.

But since the actor play'd both Snyder in Btvs and The Wizard in Charmed, there really wasn't any other choice.

I think it worked out well.

Thanks for your review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from Sepiroth
Review:
I like how this story turned out but the one part I really didn't like was the fact that they tried to keep Xander out but now that he has a power they are all trying to be buddy buddy with him, honestly I would tell them to go fuck it.
Comments from author:
Well, that is pretty much how they operated. It wasn't 'safe' for him, since he had no powers and no training. So Buffy didn't want him there.

But now that he has this new powers, this shiny new 'thing', hes part of the gang again.

Its messed up, but thats just how the Btvs world works. Sucks.


Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "A Wizard by any other name." from (Past Donor)LisaF
Review:
This story has an interesting premise, but I strongly recommend that you have a good beta reader go over it and then re-submit it. You seem to have problems with homonyms (sound-alike words) and spelling, and a beta could help you fix that. Also, I noticed that you marked the fic as completed, and it really didn't feel done to me. You say that someone needs to train Xander, and that it should be a wizard, and then you have the only other wizard pack up and leave. I hope you decide to revise and continue this, as I think it's a really absorbing premise and could go in new and interesting directions.
Comments from author:
Yes, I am aware that there are some homonym problems. But you get the gist of it, don't you? After all this isn't school. Theres no need to be perfect.

As for spelling, well not much I can say about that.

As for the Wizard leaving, that was on perpose. The Wizard was evil, pretty much. He tried to become the new Source of all evil.

So abandoning his child 'again' isn't to far fetched. Xanders to look after himself, like he always does. Like a babe lost in the woods.

I'm keeping it open so that I have a place to go if I decide to write a follow up.
