Review of chapter "Your lips a magic world" from JennyLal
I really like the relaxed atmosphere you created between Buffy and Faith. Please keep that going. And it's nice that Buffy gets a break without getting thrown out! I'd love to see Faith v Kennedy if possible. All in all this is a great fic!
Comments from author:
Thank you I hated it when Buffy got thrown out and logically if Faith isn't an escaped fugitive but with an excellent life of her own which is better than Buffy's at the moment. Why would she want to take Buffy's life over?

I didn't like Faith's role in Buffy much. She was so second. Whereas in Angel she comes first. In the fourth series especially when Wesley says 'this is Faith the vampire slayer'. She is numero uno as she should be! If only Faith could have been in series five Angel or have her own spin off series with Spike and they should have bought Wesley along for the 'ride'.

Review of chapter "Too late to beg you or cancel it" from AnnOfMidnight
Cool, I like how this went, obviously, it was my vote to have them not do anything.

Like I was saying in my earlier review (with a lot of bleching) was that if you really wanted them to have some type of sex, it had to be external. It's unforgivable like you said, but I would less want to die during the act. If someone I hated was having sex with me against my will (sort of like date rape where you don't necessarily get knocked around or scream very loud) I would be sick for days. The feeling of 'inside' is the worse. Letting it happen. Ew, ew, ew. I'm glad we didn't have to go through that. I'm just too empathetic sometimes.

Thanks for the chapter!

Thank you very much for your review. Gee it must be a risky business for you reading fanfic sometimes. (joke)

Review of chapter "Fate" from Cutiepie
Considering what she went through with Wesley before, there is no way on Earth that she will let him that near her again. I think that even if she decided that he was right and it would ensure Angelus feeding off of her, she would still go through a psychotic break by attempting to have sex with Wes, and Wes would be lucky to survive it. I don't know if Faith would survive it (mentally and emotionally) either.

No matter what Wes wants to believe, Faith has changed. She loves Alex, is actually capable of loving someone, whereas before she wasn't. Please have her push Wes away, and then have Angelus prove Wes wrong in his thinking. Wes is showing himself to be obsessed with Faith, and I really don't like your version of him. Maybe Alex is in the next room and can later give Wes a right thorough beating?
After response---

Ok, how about a very firm talking-to then? =] In truth, I had forgotten about how slimy Wes had been during this whole time (post-Connor's birth and pre-Wolfram and Hart). I guess I don't really like Joss's version of him either. ;]
Comments from author:
Goodness what a violent wish 'Alex give Wesley a thorough beating' maybe I don't like your version of Alex (lol).
It is cannon Wesley stuck a woman in his bedroom in a cage in his wardrobe for three months while he made love to Lilah. So I reckon he crossed the line there. How can we really logically like him after that?

Thank you very much for you response. It definitely helped me decide on what to do for the next chapter. Although tempting to write Faith with a mental break down. Except I don't do angst.

Review of chapter "Fate" from JennyLal
Great story. I wouldn't have Faith sleep with Wesley. I agree with the previous reviewer. A Faith in love will really anger Angel.
Comments from author:
thank you very much for your input it helped me a great deal decide on chapter 5.

Review of chapter "Fate" from AnnOfMidnight
I'd say Faith wouldn't fuck Wesley. I don't get why Angel wouldn't get territorial on her fucking Alex. He doesn't see him as a threat, maybe, but doesn't the great Faith fucking any human for another purpose than using him and being totally satisfied with that enough to make Angelus quake with jealousy?

And if you do want Faith and Wes to get it on (ew, by the way) I wouldn't want them to have intercourse. I'd have him come on her stomach or back (again ew!!!!!!!!!!) and leave it at that.

Still. I think they shouldn't, and she should use Alex to make Angelus jealous. I'd love her to be just unwavering in her love for Alex... I'm sure that Angelus being unable to really get under her skin or make her doubt it would just drive him bonkers.

Hopefully, you get lots of good ideas. Can't wait to see what you choose!

"I'd have him come on her stomach or back (again ew!!!!!!!!!!) and leave it at that."

Your idea was the most creative by far! Very Clintonesque though however.

Funnily enough I had a smilar brainwave a week ago and theory tested it on my husband. I had the brilliant idea if they got into bed with the electric blanket turned on so they would sweat, masturbated in their underwear and Wesley jerked off on her stomach that would work.

To quote our conversation.

"and what her boyfriend won't think that's cheating?"

"No, because they didn't have sex eh?"

"I see, if you came home and told me you did that with someone I'd think that was cheating. You may as well let her go the whole hog and fuck the guy, because no man I know would forgive that in a woman."

"Not even if it was to save her life?"

Review of chapter "Fate" from Neqs
I really like this story - it's original and consistent and remarkably in character. My only problem is Wesley - can you please kill him soon? I usually like him, but I so loathe your Wesley... Please keep the great fic coming!
Comments from author:
Thank you for your very kind remarks. I might kill Wesley I might not, you'll have to wait and see.

Review of chapter "So soon you'll take me" from AnnOfMidnight
I still love this series. It keeps me on the edge of my seat and makes me all kinds of uncomfortable... Guess I'm a masochist.
Comments from author:
I wonder what makes you uncomfortable, maybe it's the typo's I always spot exactly twenty four hours I've posted a chapter?

Review of chapter "Under blue moon I saw you" from chajalive
Your reasoning for the development is amazingly well thought out. Not that I expected anything different from you. I am so glad Faith s baby was not taken away in prison, though the miscarriage was harsh as well. As a European I am not really familiar with the American obsession with circumcised vs uncircumcised men and their respective performance in bed. I, for one, think that in our days with everyday showers it is not necessary for hygiene to desensitizes the "dickhead" by removing the "excess" skin. I think a good way to reduce circumcision rates would be to not have babies be circumcised but instead 14 or 15 year old boys. I don t really think they would go to the hospital to let somebody operate on their little friend. So much to the Alex and Faith Sex Story.

Concerning Marie and Oz, I can just say: Uagh! The challenge is a mighty difficult one. Especially as I am so far away from a music buff you can get. And you would expect a musician like Oz to be quite specific in his choice of music. On the other hand, Marie sounds like someone who just likes to dance.

Here are three possibilities which I thought may be appropriate but in no way perfect:
for a blatant one: Cat Power - Werewolf (Album: You are free)
"For the werewolf, for the werewolf
Have sympathy
'Cause the werewolf he is someone
Just like you an' me"

another option would be Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes (Album: Little Earthquakes)
"We danced in graveyards with vampires 'till dawn
These little earthquakes
Doesn't take much to rip us into pieces"
definitely not blatant, but am not sure whether this would be considered a love song.

and the last one would be:
Credence Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising
somewhat folky, but maybe Oz digs it.

I hereby cede the challenge to someone better suited to answering it. Maybe my attempts motivate people to search for something better!
Comments from author:
First) real life miscarriage is often a tragedy for those concerned. I hope I didn't come across as flipant about it.

Second )Thanks for Bad Moon Rising a perfect werewolf song all I could think of was Echo and the Bunnymen's 'Killing Moon'.

Third) Circumsion is pretty weird alright. I agree it should be banned for under eighteen year olds to have it.

Review of chapter "Under blue moon I saw you" from chajalive
hehe! Am so glad you are continuing. I am sure that you will be able to be proud of yourself with this triology when it is finished. Did you plan it as a triology in the beginning as well?

I like the scenes in Russia and Alex wanting her to meet the future in-laws seems good as well. I am not sure whether Alex would really want to return to Russia, but I guess we will see what happens.
Hope Faith does not end up in Prison, I so wanted to hear Alex's marriage proposal to her.
Comments from author:
Thank you for that kind comment. The first story I knew I'd end at that date April 2000 but I was going to make Faith go to jail. Alex was going to visit her and kind of tempt her. Faith would refuse and rot out her life. Alex would walk away in disgust. At one stage the poor girl was going to have a baby in prison and get it taken off her. She got off lightly with the miscarriage in story one I tell you. (lol)

But then and this all happened believe it or not because before I wrote this story I was reading this article on is Krycek truly Russian or American? There was a side paragraph for slash writers about if Alex was Russian he'd be uncircumcised and if he was American for that generation (in the original script the character first appeared in he was meant to be twenty five which makes his birthday 1969) he would be circumcised.

I decided to make him Russian because I wanted him never to have told the truth to Mulder about anything and if Krycek is a spy rather than a traitor it makes him a good guy. So ipso facto he must be uncircumcised, so then I realised that Faith as an American girl growing up in Boston and I did research on Boston Circumsion rates of the seventies and early eighties. ( thank you google and wikkipedia) that Faith probably would never had had sex with someone uncircumcised. And then (yes there's more again and this was done for research) I read this fascinating American web site with everyone listing the pro's and con''s of having sex with circumcised vs uncircumcised men and some women were raving about how sex with an uncircumcised man was the best thing they had ever experienced and how they were able to orgasm for the first time in their lives during intercourse. So I thought okay Faith has the best sex of her life kinda accidentally with this one armed man. So then I couldn't do it to her, Alex and her had to be together.

Which meant I decided to take the story up to Faith and Kryeck's last appearances on their respective series. The second part of the trilogy ended on the very last Kryeck episode on the x-files.

The third part of the trilogy will end on the last episode of Buffy.

Alex wants to return to Russia because he is Russian and as a homesick New Zealander living in Australia I get that. Russian standard of living is low compared to Boston however and certainly Australia and New Zealand. (thanks again Internet for this info). However seeing Alex is second generation K.G.B/FSB he does get a slightly higher standard of living than others. But who knows maybe I am planning to kill Alex off/or have him get back with Marita or Faith run off with Principal Wood or Gunn. You're just going to have to wait and see.

By the way like to choose a love song for two werewolves? Muses Inspiration suggested Right Here Waiting for Faith and Alex and I thought my god that's perfect. So if you have read down this far feel free to chose a love song and that will be this werewolf couples song I'll write it the story. (it might just be a sentence I try not to songfic) it can't be rap "My milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard" is out right along with "don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me" preferably something slightly alternative and wolfie. There's a challenge for you.

Excellent! :-) Can't wait to read more.

And I'll have that artwork reday for you as soon as I don't feel like I'm dying... LOL
Comments from author:
Sounds like you still have the flu poor thing. I can hardly wait for the art work. That picture you made I use as my screensaver as I said and it is a constant inspiration and influence on me.
