Review of chapter "One Shot" from BrownFinderth
Review:
NASTY SECTION!!!

Review of chapter "One Shot" from BrownFinderth
Review:
Tragic storyline. Though it grabbed my attention. I find it difficult to think of Buffy as a prostitute and being kidnapped by Section. Yet, I do wish this story had been continued!
Comments from author:
YAY! I love getting reviews on my older stuff.

Thank you for reviewing, and I am really sorry about my delay in replying.

As for being continued that (sadly) isn't likely. Many times when I try to go back and continue an older fanfic I find that I simply can't make the new ideas gel properly with my previous ones.

Review of chapter "One Shot" from TorturedAngel
Review:
wow what a wicked twist of fate. It always amazes me what one person can do or the change that happens when that one person isnt there. Maybe that makes sense. lol anyways very good read.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I do like playing that game. Sometimes you'll hear someone say "but so-and-so doesn't make a big difference," I've heard that a lot about Xander. Not really what inspired the story, but sometimes I have fun thinking about what would happen/change if a certain character was taken out.

Review of chapter "One Shot" from Sadie
Review:
It's *Birkoff*. Thank you.
Comments from author:
Thanks. This story has been published (on the web, not this site) for around two years and you are the first to tell me that I was spelling it wrong. I've went through and corrected that one.

Review of chapter "One Shot" from Nightscream
Review:
Interesting concept, very original. Some gaps in areas could be filled in with a little more detail. Xander gay took me by suprise you needed to elaborate on that a little more, after all that is a life style that isn't just something that you wake up and say "ok today i am gay". WOAH!! having Operations think that bringing in Buffy will turn him magicly back to a straight man...well that is a little misleading you might want to consider haveing him be bi-sexual instead. and to be honest i would have loved to see willow play a larger role, as a human but preferably as a childer of Angelus she could have been the perfect opposite of xander (the villain if you will). your prolog is definatly something that could be seperated in to larger and more detaild chapters but other than that its really good, definitely original and i can't wait to read more.
Comments from author:
Thanks. As for Xanders gayness, as I said to another review, I saw Xander as gay - these days I see him as more bi, but at the time of this story, in my mind, Xander was totally gay. However, since two have commented on that, I realize I should have transitioned better. As for Operations statement about Buffy and Xander, again I should have been clearer. *sigh* Thats one of those cases where I knew what he meant, but I didn't make it clear enough to the reader. It wasn't that he thought Xander and Buffy would have a sexual relationship, but that because they were (are) friends they might start disobeying orders like Michael and Nikita - those two always disobey orders when it comes to helping the other. He thought Buffy and Xander might be that way too.

Edits on this one are clearly needed. However, outside of cosmetic things it'll be a while before I can properly edit this one, because if I don't finish the other story I'm working on before coming back here, I'll end up losing my train of thought on that story.

As for Willow, as I said below, I needed Buffy to have suffered, and honestly I don't write a good vampWillow - I just don't. She always ends up too much like Drusilla.

Review of chapter "One Shot" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Honestly, upon finding out about Willow's death (and even Giles' death and Buffy's sitution contributing) I expected him to use the "w" word. "I wish section had never come to Sunnydale." Have it granted and the "payback" being the whole Dopplegangland and Anya situation aka Cannon series.
Comments from author:
To be honest, I needed Buffy to have suffered very badly so that her situation wouldn't seem wrong. I can't imagine Buffy would turn to hooking unless everything went so very wrong for her. So, I offed many of her nearest and dearest.

Review of chapter "One Shot" from wraiths
Review:
I like the story and the cross is working. If you are going to make the slash graphic please place a warning and please don't make it graphic.
Comments from author:
I do mention the story contains slash. However, I will (when I figure out how) go back and make the warning stronger.

Review of chapter "One Shot" from Fooo
Review:
The writing was pretty good (and it's an awesome cross) but, to be honest, I stopped reading when the gay fairy used his/her magic wand on Xander in the course of a sentence which struck me as more than a little bit too abrupt.

Thanks.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. Sorry you found Xanders gayness abrupt. To be honest, I've always seen Xander as gay - I won't go into my reasons here. I just mention it to help explain why I don't always transition Xander into gay-land as well as some readers would like. Honestly, to me Xander is more gay than Willow, and she's the one who has the gay relationships in canon. LOL
