Review of chapter "Chapter 10: Revelations" from Lictre
Review:
While I can see how some would complain about Xander being powered up, and whine about how he seems to be physically stronger than Buffy, his power-up is reasonably explained via things that happened to him canonically, and comes with an array of drawbacks, inconveniences and limitations. He's having to struggle with huge amounts of stressful memories from a number of wars, his senses are likely to be giving him fits for weeks if not months, Primal impulses are hitting him hard in instincts that are already hard enough to control for a teenaged male, which could easily cause social or legal problems if his control falters. He's going to have to practice physical combat skills to impress them into muscle-memory, unlike Slayers who apparently get sophisticated combat instincts and reflexes along with occasional prophetic dreams and assorted mystical senses (such as Buffy's ability in the movie to know when a vampire's near because it causes a sensation like cramping).

One reviewer complains of Xander not either playing the field, or sampling what's offered to him after a rescue, comparing Xander to a monk, but right at the time, not only is Xander struggling with his own control, but having nearly forced Buffy sexually, he's probably kicked himself around a lot regarding that sort of impulse, and may feel that actions taken in the post-rescue heat of the moment could be similar to taking advantage of somebody who temporarily isn't in their right mind. Considering that he's friends with two women with physical superpowers, and one with developing mystical powers, self control becomes a survival trait.

Review of chapter "Chapter 10: Revelations" from OtteryLexa
Review:
This has been a fun read, even if Xander is a touch overpowered (I'd prefer it if he didn't quite match up to a Slayer, and had to use Skill, sneakiness and dirty tricks to make up the difference). Rec'd.
Hope it comes off hiatus sometime.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: School Daze" from mrsinister
Review:
Ha never spotted this before, "You live at 742 Evergreen Terrace. You drive a blue 1996 Honda Acura." Xander squinted to read the plates of the car, which was on the other side of the parking lot. "TK-421..."

Simpsons reference!

Review of chapter "Chapter 10: Revelations" from trongod
Review:
Gotta agree with the folks wanting more on this; an outstanding, well written story that has languished in Limbo far too long, so here's hoping Real Life leaves you and your Muses alone so you can return to writing!

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish" from Downery
Review:
Just once i'd like to see Xander act like the normal teenager he is. That's the reason i liked him in the first place. Hating someone didn't stop him from making out with her, girl he barely knew dragged him into her hotel room he did the deed, teacher wants him....well he went along even if she ended up being a monster.. but he acted like a normal male.

99% of the fics out there that make Xander more attractive to the other sex always make him into a priest/monk thats a poster boy for abstinence or put him into a serious relationship with a slut while he was a virgin or barely experienced. I like Faith but she was/is pretty lose. Buffy would look at a dick that raped god knows how many children and call it a nummy treat (We all know for fact that Angel killed infants and liked mental torture, so if he tortured parents.. i don't know whats worse then raping and killing their kids).

But yea... Xander never get's to reap the rewards for a little while before jumping into a serious relationship and it just annoys me. He suddenly goes from a normal guy i used to be able to relate to into an abstinent monk that turns down mutual one night stands till her gets a serious girlfriend. Hope this is different even if the story is dead.

Review:
Quality writing here. Excellent work. Hope that it gets revisited sometime soon, but muses can be fickle I understand. In any case...thanks for making an interesting and entertaining story available to us here.

Review:
I like the idea but I feel there is way too much crossingover... but I like that Faith knows the Saints.

Review of chapter "Chapter 10: Revelations" from bookworm
Review:
This is a very good, intriguing story. It could quite easily have spiralled into over-powering Xander, and it does show glimmers of that at times, but generally you seem to have kept it to a plausible level. It helps that his focus thus far has been on strengthening the team, not on becoming the new leader of it.

At any rate, I definitely like where this seems to be going, and if you're ever inspired to continue it, there's certainly still interest out there. Keep up the good work, whether it's this story or not.

Kinda disappointed that this story seems dead, but other then that I think it's great. Looking forward to reading your other works, and I'll be tracking this in case your muse strikes.

Keep up the good work

Review of chapter "Chapter 10: Revelations" from RedlegIggy
Review:
I always come back to this story. The pleasure of reading it again and again never subsides. The author is truly talented, the pictures that Psychosama paints with words are inspiring. Let us all hope that the muse strikes them again and inspires more to this tale...
