Review of chapter "The Message" from AmeliaTomashi
This was excellent! I loved the whole "goth kid grinnin at her" thing! It seems this story could really go some where...I hope you continue it some day. If not, ah well, cest la vie non?


Comments from author:
Thank you! I really enjoyed writing this story - long ago as it was ;) - and it's always fantastic to receive reviews for it. I doubt I'll write anymore to the story - it felt pretty much to be the finished article and I've not watched JoA in a long time.

Thanks, again :D

Review of chapter "The Message" from BlameyFomorrii
I don't know anything about "Joan of Arcadia" but this story was really sweet. So, it takes the "Joan of Arc" type story-where a girl has a direct link to God; he appears to her, she can converse, and what not, and he responds? I like that.

Also-sweet to know God wants Buffy to know he truly appreciates her.

Joan of Arcadia only lasted for two seasons but I really enjoyed it.

thanks for the review :D

Review of chapter "The Message" from txalb
I really like this story and the idea behind it.

It was very simplistic and I think that’s one of the reasons I like it so much. The idea of Buffy being thanked is something that’s never really explored in the Buffyverse (in fact I’ve only read two other fics where she was thanked). Her job is always depicted as thankless and I love that you wrote this.

“Why God wants to look like a Goth or a Punk or whatever I don’t know, I guess we’re all ‘God’s children’, it’s probably just some ploy to embarrass me further.” I love this line and it really cracked me up. I don’t watch Joan of Arcadia, and I only know the basic premise of the show, however, after reading this, if you had wanted you could have gone into the way Joan’s life parallels with Buffy’s when she was younger and only wanting to be normal. Also I was kinda disappointed that there wasn’t ever a crack about Joan’s name and how much Buffy liked it. It would’ve been good for another laugh.

“Great, I’m obviously old enough to get the tolerate-the-old-person smile.” This is such a Buffy thought, it’s just perfect. I could seriously hear her saying this. You nailed her character right on the head.

The only thing I thought was lacking was in the dialogue between Joan and Buffy. It would have been interesting to see that. It also would have been interesting to see the reason why Joan decided that that was the right moment to tell her (but not necessary to the story).

I really liked the fact that she saw the “goth kid” smiling at her right before she started on the next student. That was a really great tie in with the beginning of the fic and I like the idea that there is someone looking out for her.

This was left open and I’m wondering if you’re planning on continuing. If you do, I can’t wait to read more. If you don’t, this is great just the way it is.

You did a wonderful job with it and I hope to see more of your work soon.

Thank you, wow, that review was great *grin*

I just felt that if anyone was going to thank her it would be done like this.

I'd completely forgotten about the 'Joan' thing til you mentioned it, I must really not be with it today not to have picked up on it.

Thank you, it's great to hear that Buffy is a character I can get right.

For some reason dialogue between Joan and Buffy just wasn't coming tonight...

I have no current plans to continue this or for any sequels, but you never know.

Thanks, you've really got me blushing here...
