Review of chapter "Graduation" from LaFlooze
Enjoyed the crossover execution. Loved Dru's appearance. I like the Damien connection but it might be good to mention some disguising aspect - five years isn't long enough for someone to become unrecognizable to someone you were in regular contact with. Fun story, and I think any complaints I have could be easily solved by fleshing out the final chapter a bit more. Thanks for sharing!

Review of chapter "Graduation" from Krysstinia
This is one of my favorite stories. I read it on fanfic.com a while ago and found it here. I was wondering if you were ever going to write a sequel. I would love to know what Spike's reaction to the events in this story would be.

Review of chapter "Graduation" from Maethoriell
Weee.... I finally got around to finishing this ^.^
And I'm reviewing... 'cause I can.
Hmmm... Good job, only negative I can throw in is that it could be more fleshed out? More details or whatever, explanations, links, or whatever. There seem to be a lot of coincidences that could have better foundations. It seems a bit rushed. Things were brought together mostly in the last few chapters, maybe it would be possible to make circumstances more plausible with little tie-ins throughout the story, building up curiosity about the final climax.. And really what would be the great climax? I mean there was that huge fight at the beginning at the club and while the rest was more important to the whole, that seemed to be the most epic part. After wards the whole linear cord began to fray. Loose-ends and all that jazz. Remember the power of description! Don't say the impression you're trying to convey, portray it.
Or something. I may be way way way off the mark with this.
I know you're long done with this but maybe one day you'll be bored and you'll go and do some major overhaul.
Did you ever manage to get a beta for this?
Comments from author:
Could you get back to me on the specifics of which coincidences you're talking about, which circumstances need solidifying? Right now, I'm sorta working on a sequel/backstory thing that's supposed to explain the whole Hermione/Draco thing, and I might be able to work some explanation into that, but I don't know if I'd actually re-write BAP. The stuff after the club was supposed to be the wind-down, trying to tie up loose ends from the beginning of the story, but I guess new elements were introduced...I was planning on those elements tying into the sequel...

Review of chapter "Graduation" from AmarinRose
Wow, that was interesting. I especially enjoyed the twist about what Harry had to do to kill Voldemort. And you really kept me guessing about Damian - I thought he was either Spike, or even Harry in disguise!

Review of chapter "Graduation" from cflat
I just found this story now, which, by the way, was good! I like how you had Draco being a good guy, and Harry being a sort of "good" vampire. This was one of the most original Buffy/HP xovers I've read!

Review of chapter "The Assignment" from SpikesChewToy
*Bloody Brilliant* was quite captivated right from the start. I love the idea that Draco and Hermione didn't recognise each other when they met (perhaps Draco was under a Fidelius Charm - though not sure why he wouldn't have recognised Hermione .... but it's an idea anyway) would make a great little back story (or front story on where they go from here).
but even if you never write anything more about this story - it is great and I love that Harry is a Vampire hehe good way to kill Voldemort without using an unforgiveable.

Review of chapter "Graduation" from willayork
very nice. it seemed maybe a bit fast-paced but not really- like it all happened quick but there *were* really gaps in the middle. tho how the hell Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy managed not to recognize each other....
hehe 'c'mon dru we're off to Wiltshire-- i loved that
id like to see what happened if "auntie Dru" came back to visit dawn, and spike's there, and she brings harry, who's the black heir, who gets to meet spike, who *was* a black, ....
hell, you could do a sequel just based on spike's reaction to learning all about dawn's poetry report. hehe hehe

Review of chapter "Graduation" from Redluxx
Thought this was really great. I'm sad you decided to kill off Angel... bummer. And I don't really see Ron as the player type, but other than that I loved the storyline and characterization. Your Dawn was just perfect.

Review of chapter "Graduation" from purrfus
Over too soon.
So... if Draco and Hermione weren't in disguise, how did they both change so much they were able to date without recognizing each other?
Comments from author:
Good point. I've been planning to do a few drabbles to flesh out BAP's backstory, maybe I should do one about Draco and Hermione that'll answer this. First, to figure out something plausible...

Review of chapter "Graduation" from spygrrl
I loved it! I thought this was a fabulously fun story and wonderful merging of the HP & Buffy 'verses. I think Kiley & Dawn made a great best friend pairing and I would love to see more of them in the future ! :) I have to say though that my favorite part was the end with Spike showing up, human no less, with him & Buffy being reunited. Does my Buffy/Spike heart good. Plus his final line was so funny!

Review of chapter "Graduation" from YademosEbyam
Excellent story (and yes, I want a sequel too)! I'm curious about the reference to "The Flying Turk's Head" tavern; I Googled it and got nothing (lots about the Order of St. John and the Hospitallers though, and some Turk's Head taverns, coffee houses and even a comedy club). The coda made me immediately think of a magical weapon in the RPG setting "GURPS Technomancer" called the Skull Spirit Warhead, which is basically an enchanted skull in an artillery shell that releases a deadly assassin spirit upon impact. Seems like the perfect Death Eater weapon if they could ever get over the Muggle elements of it. ;)
Comments from author:
I'm just going on memory here, The Flying Turk's Head might not exist anymore, or it might be called The Turk's Head. I was in St. John Ambulance cadets as a kid and one of the badges we had to go for was the history of the Order. After the Crusades, the Templars went to Rhodes, but then they got kicked out and went to Malta where they were headquartered until the Pope disbanded them and gave their land to the Hospitallers. They were besieged by the Turks in both places, and I'm pretty sure I remember something about them using Turk's heads as artillery ammunition on one of their battles (come to think of it, cannons hadn't been invented yet, so it was probably in catapults). The lady that was telling us about that particular battle was a Dame in the Order, and I'm pretty sure I remember her telling us that she went to a pub called The Flying Turks Head when she went to London to recieve her "knighthood" I guess you could call it.
