Review of chapter "Chapter One" from JJDudeman
Man, I don't know what to make of this one - right up to the revelation of slayers' bodies self-destructing, I found this a compelling and interesting alternate take on the Council. Sad, and dark, but quality.
The horror from that revelation on succeeded in being plausible, but it pretty much ruined things for me. It's just too much. Maybe that's the point, but I would have much preferred a different direction there.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kalespr
This is a wonderfully grim spin of the Slayer mythos that ages well, and is every bit as haunting and enjoyable in subsequent re-readings. Excellent work.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from vidicon
Very dark, but very well written. Giles is not going to be happy with Travers. And it might have been better to tell htem all what Buffy's fate might have been. Very well done indeed.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from stahchild
Oh how Horrible! Poor slayers :( you've put a very human face on the watchers council but at the same time I would like nothing more then to run Travers through with a knife. Poor Buffy.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kaleecat
Unique & very well thought out idea of what the Council is and what the true chance of "normal" might be for a Slayer long term. It isn't dark, its harsh reality and as you called it, "bitter truth."

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Jemtlen
I love this view of the council. Nice to see a portrayal that is not just oh they are just evil, manipulative old men.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Shieldage
Sadfru:: "On a side note I would have liked a watchers report detailing the utter anhilation of the Vamp/Demon horde in Europe, in a clinical and british manner mentioning in passing her demise, let the girl go out in a bang"
Hey, if that means Buffy solves the problem in Europe and dies in a blaze of glory, leaving the new Slayer to patrol the Hellmouth and interact with what remains of the Scooby gang I'm all for it :D

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Alyssara
Wow! That was incredibly depressing and yet incredibly well thought out and crafted! I was already impressed with you from the "Normal" series, but this just ratcheted up the admiration I have for the way your mind works. Keep up the good -or rather "great"- work...just please, please, please inject a little bit more fluffy-bunniness into future stuff :-) I much prefer happy endings!!!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Mishka
Brilliantly horrific. I despise what you have done to Buffy in this but it is so well crafted that I can't but respect you for it. Damn you!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Specks
That was really intense. The way you could see Quentin's brain work and the weariness that you inject so perfectly into the tone of the piece. As the story moved along, there was an increase in the heaviness of the tone, like a burden. You show excellent control of the writing elements and amazing intuition when it comes to human emotion. The sorrow and inevitability of a Slayer's end is so well painted here. Just awesome.
