Review of chapter "Doers (Somewhere in USA) - Ivy and Batgirl" from Ltlconf

Yah know, one of the things that constantly stuns me is the sheer IGNORANCE of college educated Hollywood script writers. Ya see, that hyena spirit ain't gonna do a thing ta help Xander with his woman issues. Ya see, Hyena's are MATRIARCHAL!!!! HAH!!!!
In the end, as the 'alpha predators' on campus Buffy, Faith, and Cordelia would end up ridin' his ass in any case, and he'd bow an' scrape to the one on top at any givin moment.

I do like that Faith and Cordelia bonded. Faith needs someone who has no agenda, o is at least honest about their's, and if Cordelia is anything, it's brutally honest. And if that honesty is given in return, Cordy is as loyal as they get, and I imagine Faith will return the favor.
They were pretty mean to Willow, but Willow did 'morally' lord over Faith at every opportunity and put her down behind her back (though I imagine Faith's hearing picked up some of it). Fact is, Willow was old-style Cordy-level vicious and backstabbing (oft 'whispering' in Buffy's ear), just never to Faith's face til cornered in the Mayor's office. Faith simply returned the favor: If Faith's a "cleavage-y slut bomb drop-out" then I think Willow can be labeled a "self-righteous door mat weakling!"
Only fair.
And Cordy sacrificed everything to aid the Scoobs and date Xander and once she broke up with him got dropped, forgotten and not so much as a thanks (even after rescuing Willow and Buffy in 'Gingerbread'). When shit blew up Cordy was there with the firehouse (once literally) even if bitching all the way (Xander jokes, Cordelia bitches, helps deal) but rarely got credit, especialy as she had NO reason to be there! So why? Cause Willow did say it well "We know, so we have to act." Best of all she was honest to a fault, and often right in her snark! She thought it she says it.... Cordy is due a true friend who can take her and be loyal to her as well.

The Cracker!
Comments from author:
Thank you for your kind review. It's been a while since I've written this story and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to see it get reviewed once again after such a while. And yes, I agree with everything you say - Xander just wasn't meant to be THE hero of the series - A hero certainly, but Buffy was and would be still in charge. As for Willow/Faith feud - yes, they just didn't get along, and neither would Willow and Cordelia. ...Even if you ignore Xander's cheating upon Cordy with Willow. That's just wrong.

So, anyways, thank you for your review and good luck to you in the future!

So, the fallout of the wish brought out everybody's bad sides? Hmm...

I assume the horsefly bite that shocked Willow back to herself was some air demon not wanting the competition?

Heh, I predict Ivy and Batgirl will be on the same side - at least as long as they're in Sunnydale proper ;)

I have just reread this story and I hope you get inspired to add a sequel to this story.

I rather like this story, but I have to ask... Why do you hyphenate so many words?

I don't. My computer does it automatically. It's a glitch.

Review of chapter "The wallflower (planners - Willow - Sunnydale)" from Darklight
Cordy should have left those two alone and left with Faith, both of them getting powers and not real friendly feelings toward Cordy she is going to get big trouble heading her way.

Keep teh chapters coming
Comments from author:
Oh, they are leaving - right in my next story. Faith and Cordelia, I mean. Willow and Xander - they're staying in Sunnydale, thats' for certain. Also, you should keep in mind that unlike Cordelia, Faith is actually itching for a good fight - and she doesn't like Willow much at the point (feelings are reciprocated). So, there is going to be a confrontation, and big trouble will be going around, but rather it'll be both ways.

Review of chapter "Talkers, Planners (Doers)" from Darklight
Great start, liked it.

But didn't Cordy have plans to go to college and universities already accepted her, before her dad lost all his money and she couldn't go to them? and wasn't Cordy working already? keeping it secret before Xander finds it out.

Get Cordy to come up with something with which Faith can make money from being a slayer.

Keep teh chapters coming, Cordy got real even with Xander and Willow with the Angel curse thing
Comments from author:
Like Cordelia needs an excuse to go to LA for anything - right now Sunnydale isn't very hospitable to her (or at least that's what she thinks). Also, she may not know yet that her father had lost money and doesn't change her plans as a consequence.

Cordelia getting Faith a job? I don't know. But we'll see.
