Review of chapter "California Summer" from BuffyKaibaHunt
How extraordinary! :) I like how Harry explains things to Buffy and tells Dawn about himself, as well as how he interacts with the other characters as well. :)

Thanks for taking the time to review this story. I'm always pleasantly surprised when someone actually reads my stories after all this time.

This is quite old, first posted over at FFN way back in November 2001 and think I may have done just a bit of polishing of the story before I posted it here. When I did post this here, five years ago, I was trying to get into writing once again, and had in my mind to maybe write a sequel.

Sadly I've not been writing much at all, and nothing that I've felt was worth sharing.

Still, I'm quite thrilled that you read it, and enjoyed it. Thank you!

Review of chapter "California Summer" from Vld
Well, i have to say some of it sounds promising. Might I suggest trying to give more details about what happens? The simple meeting between Harry and Giles should have taken a little more place, and Dawn and Harry getting together should have taken an entire chapter. Same with his reasons for not trusting Willow with how much magic he knows. Stuffs like that.

All valid points. I may even consider re-writing this at some point. However, as I said, for now it is only posted because i'm considering writing future fics in this universe. This piece was one of my very first pieces of fanfiction, and i hope that my writing skills have improved since.

Review of chapter "California Summer" from demonbornslaygal
"Crystal." ((AN: Short form of Clear as Crystal – meaning “yes, very clear”. Don't know if that is a regional saying or not.)) unless you're from new england too it ain't a regional thing, good story!

Thank you. I felt the need to explain it because some people might not have understood the use of the word "crystal" as a synonym for "yes, i understand". I believe that I am a somewhat better writer than i was 4 years ago, and now would not use a phrase that i felt the need to pause the story to explain.

Review of chapter "California Summer" from (Recent Donor)kribby

I like your story. It seems quite rushed. YOu could easily expand it to 3 or 4 chapters and I am sure it would be a better read.
Comments from author:
I agree. This was posted November 2001 at FFN (by me) and all I did was copy it from there (as i've lost the original file) and fix a few major typos. I would like to believe my writing skills have improved since I wrote this.

I posted it because someone made the effort to contact me via instant message to request (and honestly request - not beg and not badger, nor cuss me out when I said it may not happen) a sequel. I'm more likely to post here these days, and thus i wanted this in place as a background for future works in this universe.
