Review of chapter "Buffy and Erik" from SkeeterB
Review:
I was thinking of the Bill Withers version of "Lean on Me" when I first read it, I didn't realize there was a Michael Bolton cover of that song. Its amazing the way you are bringing all of these characters to life in this fanfiction.

Review of chapter "Betrayal, Tears & Opening Up/No One Would Listen" from Arjai
Review:
Just angst-y enough, if you ask me. I love the direction you are headed, keep up the good work. Hmmm William should be still among the living at this point, maybe as a child attending the opera for the first time with his mother on a Parisian holiday. His first glimpse of Christine, and one he would never ever forget.

Review of chapter "A Heroic Act Between Friends" from Arjai
Review:
Votes: BTVS: Xander, HP: Ron Weasley (really!)
BTW: I enjoyed this very much thus far, good plot good exposition, odd but pleasing characterization.

I have always felt that Erik got a raw deal, and was a far better man than Raoul.

Review of chapter "A Heroic Act Between Friends" from Moriko
Review:
For Christine in the next two stories: B:tVS/A:tS Angel, Spike, Conner, Lindsey.
HP:Oliver (you could maybe do a sceen where he try's to teach her to fly), Snape (maybe she could turn out to be really good at Potions and he finds out), Sirius, Remus.

Review of chapter "Imhotep's Warning/May It Be" from rivrgrl
Review:
now things have gone to a whole new level of complication. are things ever going to be simple with you? don't take that seriously it's what I like about you. so whose Raoul and Christine's future daughter and how big exactly is the role she plays in the Chosen Line? It would be awesome to find out that their daughter is connected to Faith somehow..

as for my story every time I get a chapter done I find that it's not where I want to go at all or that I keep botching up the story and furthere screwing up any time line I set. I do have several humorous scenes that might need to be changed accordingly but not too much. Like Buffy yelling at Raoul and the Managers, Angel encouraging Erik in killing Raoul during both Wishing you were here again and DOM. basically this fic is giving me hell of trouble.

keep up your fic though.. it's awesome
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you like it. Who is Raoul and Christine's future daughter and how big is the role she plays in the Chosen Line? All of that will be revealed towards the end of the story. As for the part about things being simple. Well, let's just say that I like making things complicated with characters in my fan fics.

Anyway, the humorous scenes you described are very funny but sorry that your story is causing you grief. I had the same problem when I first started writing fan fiction (I've been writing and reading fan fiction stories since 2001). But other than that, I'm looking forward to reading it. Again, thanks for the review and good luck with your story.

Review of chapter "Popping The Question/Masquerade" from rivrgrl
Review:
aaaak.. i think this chapter just confused the he-l-l out of me. I got most of it. Erik proposing to Buffy and she accepting. The four of them going to the Masquerade. Then the arrival of Angelus. (which is never good) and other stuff. I'm sorry but I can't help but wonder if this chapter wasn't just thrown together. it's not as good as your previous chapters.

oh and as for my btvs/ats/poto story i finished chapters 1&2 but will not be posting them here just yet. I have a few kinks to pound out and research my s7 btvs and s4 ats..
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. To be completely honest with you, I wasn't happy with the way this chapter came out but I ran out of ideas plus I didn't want to disappoint my readers with a longer waiting period. So, you're right, this wasn't as good as the previous chapters. This one will definately be on my list of chapters to revise (which won't happen until I finish the whole TOSC trilogy).

As your story, I can't wait to read it. Good luck and again thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Floating, Falling Into Love" from rivrgrl
Review:
ah that was so sweet. glad that it didn't take so long for them to admit their feelings. all that waiting and dancing around would have been torture to the reader. glad his getting the family he deserves..

M.G.. MMM.. Madame Giry prehaps???

Nice twist in explaining the origin of Dawn's keyness. Like how you brought in Imhotep. Wouldn't have expected that.. SO how does this play in with the whole Phantom universe? can't wait to see how you merge the two further.. you can always add the Scorpoin King. The Rock *drools.

as for my fic.. I'm stuck. I don't want it to sound too cheesy like Buffy and Angel met make out then WHAM there in the past. I'm thinking that I might just use Whistler. And I'm writing it now trying to get the kinks out before I post it anywhere. maybe post it in my lj first. thanks for the encouragement.
Comments from author:
I do think that the premise for your story is very promising and I can't wait to read it. Orginally, I wasn't going to bring in Imhotep until the last story of the trilogy (which is 'The Other Side Of Honor) but upon writing this chapter, I didn't like the way it turned out so I changed my mind and decided to bring him in this chapter. Therefore, I rewrote it till I liked the result. As to how the 'Mummy' fandom will play in the whole POTO universe, you'll just have to wait and see. Also, I'm going to add two other fandoms to the trilogy just to add some spice. They are both TV shows 'Gargoyles' (one of my childhood favorite TV shows which I got into around the same time as POTO) and 'Charmed' (Another one of my favorite shows). How they will play in the POTO universe in the TOSOC trilogy? Well, I'm still working on it. But I can tell you that the characters of both shows won't show up until the next story of the TOSOC trilogy which is 'The Other Side Of Courage'.

By the way, you're wondering about the 'M.G' part whether or not it was Madame Giry. Yeah, it was Madame Giry who wrote that note to Buffy and she and Meg make their official first appearances in the next chapter. Good luck with the story and happy reading!!!

Review of chapter "The Truth Revealed Part II/Denied and Betrayed" from rivrgrl
Review:
i always loved/hated this part of the musical.. loved it because Carlotta finally got what she deserved but hated it because Christine and that Pansy ass had to ruin everything by getting engaged. I'm an E/C shipper for the most part and seeing that scene when he sings about denying and betraying in such a heartbroken voice ALWAYS makes me cry. Glad to see Buffy be there to comfort him..

as for the fight scene in the flies it was interesting. specially you bringing Dawn's keyness into it. It is definitely something that needs to be researched. also the part when they're all in the lair getting ready and Erik called Dawn 'Dawnie' I could see it because that one act made him seem more human. That his time with Willow, Buffy and Dawn has helped him realize that people are accepting of him.

also I am currently trying to do a POTO/BTVS xover myself. my premise is that in Order for Buffy and Angel to have their happy ending (ignoring most of S4 and S5-7 of btvs and S3-5 for BTVS)they have to unite another pair of star crossed lovers in the past Erik and Christine. How they end up in the past isn't clear yet. Yes it will be BA EC because I am such a sap for star crossed Romeo and Juliet type romance. Besides there is just something sexy bout a broody vamp and an equal broody phantom
Comments from author:
Thank you so much for the review!! I loved/hated this part of the muscial too. I laughed at the part when Carlotta tried to sing and she ends up croaking. That part of the musical cracks me up, lol. But, I sobbed the first time I saw the scene where Erik sang about Christine denying and betraying him. I'm an E/C shipper also but I wanted to do a different pairing with this story (like Buffy/Erik or Willow/Erik). As for the part about being Dawn's keyness into the fight scene between Buffy, Erik and the demon, that was something that I had planned to do after I wrote chapter six. There will be some surprises in the next chapter.

By the way, I love the premise for your own BtVS/POTO fic and I can't wait to read it. Again, thank you for the review and happy reading!!!

Review of chapter "The Truth Revealed Part I/Shine Your Light" from rivrgrl
Review:
ooh the soap opera keeps getting better and better... *munches happily on popcorn* so part of the truth is out. we still have the whole Willow going Darth Will trying to end the world thing to get through. Loved you bringing in Whistler.. He always seems to make an appearance when least wanted.

question.. ok couple of questions. 1) Raoul, Do we have another Riley thing going on? What I mean is someone who knows about the things that go bump and is totally unable to deal? Riley did have that problem for most of his realtionship with Buffy. 2)So now that Buffy has acknowledged that she might have feelings for Erik and vice versa how does that play into the POTO verse? Is Erik going to give up on Christine? Or is it more a gradual understand? maybe One of those denial things then BAM right in the face?

keep the drama coming I have plenty of popcorn.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. It's nice to see that I have at least a few loyal fans of this story. Anyway, this chapter took at least two days to write due to constant rewrites. I put Whistler in the story just to add a little bit of comedy. Just to answer your questions, With Raoul, do we have another Riley thing going on? The answer is no. Raoul will be more mature and more accepting of the supernatural world than Riley. The same with Erik. Our favorite Phantom will also be more accepting of things that go bump in the night. As for the second question, you're going have to wait and see.

Again, thanks for the review and happy reading!!
