Review of chapter "Chapter One" from twlight
Review:
Revenge on who is the better question asked, on Buffy or Xander? I kinda have to say that Xander in many ways is better off without Willow, Buffy and Cordy in his life
Comments from author:
In this particular universe, that might just be true. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kdakmmt
Review:
is it really revenge when xander didnt have to be buffys butt monkey? not to mention he didnt lose and eye, he wasnt enthralled by dracula. it seems to me that she actually did him a favor in the long run.
Comments from author:
Revenge for who? Anya believed that causing Xander to lose his closest friends and suffer the corresponding severe emotional loss was the most satisfying revenge she could achieve, so that's what she did.

The loss of his eye occurred in the following season, not when she plotted her revenge, and any physical losses Xander might have been spared were of little concern to her in that respect.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Xovervore
Review:
[Quote]Angel nodded. "Here's the plan, Buffy," he said to the Slayer. "Now that you guys are back, Xander and Michelle are gonna be coming with me to LA - Wesley, Harry, Fred and Gunn are waiting for us there. The, uh, Hellmouth's your territory, and Giles will be taking up his old place as your Watcher again."

"Yeah, and I can't believe I'm going to be transferring to Hemery High!" the younger Slayer said with a pout.

"Um..." Giles started to say, noticing Buffy's statement. "The, the Council believes it's for the best, Buffy. There's been a lot of vampire activity there, over the past few years..."[/Quote]
With this quoted section above - there seems to be a sentence missing - Buffy's statement.

During their four years in "college" [if at Oxford it would actually be Uni; the colleges there are like "houses"] what degrees did the girls and Oz get?

This is supposed to be vengeance on Xander? Seems more like vengeance on Buffy, Cordelia and Willow. It seems that Vengeance demons need retraining.
I suppose one could make the case that making their lives "cushy" and making Xander's life "hard" is a form of vengeance against Xander.
When Dawn was the Key, she didn't have any super-regen ability.

"The Lie" is one of the most overrated events in BtVS - it didn't matter what Xander said, Buffy would have defeated Angelus. That's my opinion anyway, others may disagree.

What happened to Jonathan? - maybe this is answered in the sequel that I haven't read yet, but is the reason I have just read this story, as found it due to the sequel turning up in 'Latest' stories list.
Comments from author:
As was detailed in the story, Anya (before going back in time) was focused solely on destroying Xander's life as she saw.

That is, she intended to destroy any and all of his friendships and relationships he had, in an effort to ruin his life for leaving her at the altar.

Any effects on Buffy, Willow or Cordy were completely incidental, as was Xander ending up being the Key.

And Jonathan's future is described in the follow-up story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Shadowcub
Review:
I cannot stand Xander, I like the story, but he was always too judgmental, if you don't like Angel and I hated him with a passion don't hang around and lie to your friends, it always made me wonder what X would do if he wasn't just jealous donut guy.
Comments from author:
Glad to hear you liked the story, but I don't understand why if you do if you can't stand Xander.

As far as Xander being 'jealous donut guy', that's much like classifying angel as 'bloodsucking immortal pedophile guy' - an incomplete and misleading description, at best. If you're referring to 'The Lie' Xander made to Buffy about resouling Angel, Joss, the source of all canon-Buffy information, has been quoted (and I do have a copy of the referenced article somewhere) as saying that Xander did NOT do it solely out of jealousy, but lied to get Buffy to perform her duty and save the six billion other souls on the planet from being drawn into Hell.

In any event, I appreciate hearing your opinions, and hope you'll let me know your opinion on the next chapter, which I hope my muse will cooperate and let me get finished in the very near future.
