Just found this one, I think of all the one shots I have read on this site this one deserves to grow and expand into an epic. Great job!

Review of chapter "once upon a time...." from SadJack
Review:
I actully like this quite alot. It makes a sorta surreal sense.

Truthfully, I think that it would make a good "After-Effect" story line for season 8.

If you feel like persuing this, count me in to be a beta.

Review:
Aww. I love your Xander and I adore your Cordy. Would love to see a sequel though this stands perfectly well on its own.

Review of chapter "once upon a time...." from vitruvian
Review:
And... we hear "Circle of Life" playing in the background. Very nice combination of a damaged Xander and an empowered Xander story, and a good resolution for Cordelia's story as well.

Myself, I kept the hyena spirit rather than trading it in for another totem, just because I suspect the stereotypes about the nobility of lions and and the sneakiness/dastardliness of hyenas are a little bit overwrought. Hyenas are as much hunters as lions are, just as lions don't turn up their nose at carrion either. Also consider that hyenas are true pack animals, capable of loyalty, where prides are much looser conglomerations. But, you know, your version works too.
Comments from author:
Man you give good feedback! Yeah, the lion thing is slightly contrived, especially since I knew about the misconceptions of life on the veldt when I wrote this fic. My primary reasoning was that Hyenas are particularly matriarchal and that could have worked against Xander's natural strengths. The Lion thing is a powerful image (Giles might get a kick out of it, "Rule Britannia" and all) and I felt that as a solo character, but still one of the few males in a group of strong females, a Lion spirit would work well. I'll be honest, my dialog can be total crap from time to time, but the images in my head are so strong I've gotta get them out there. Plus this gave me a little Xan/Cordy resolution that the show denied us after they went to separate networks.
