Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from zigpal
Glad you're back. :)

Great update. I'm glad to see that Xander's talk sank into Buffy, so she can now get to know her stepmother (and later, her little sister). I can't wait to see how Stars Hollow takes to Joyce and finding out that Lorelai and she are married. I'm sure it'll come up in a town meeting.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Yes it may well come up at the town meeting. Maybe everyone - Rory, Buffy and Sookie, will insisted that they have a blessing or something in the town church?

Review of story "Can My Life Get Any Weirder" from TwoBlackDragons
Evil author = one who doesn't finish stories they start.
And this is a good story, so please stop being an evil author.

Buffy wouldn't call her mother mum, mom yes mum no.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. You will notice that a new chapter has now been posted. As for mum/mom, I have told this many times before - It has nothing to do with how it is pronounced, it is just how it is spelt in UK English.

Review of story "Can My Life Get Any Weirder" from CPTSkip
I was so glad to see an update. This is one of my favorite 'Joyce' stories. I like how you have characterized all Our Heroes. Plus, you have a nice sense of humor that makes your story feel more 'real'. I hope you find a new beta reader and we get to read more of your interesting stories.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I was contacted by someone earlier so if it works out the next part will be posted soon - hopefully!

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from Cmiller
I like this so far and I also think that Buffy/Faith would be of the good. ;-)
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review but I do not see Buffy and Faith getting back together in this one there has been too much water under the bridge but I could see them at least agreeing to keep in contact!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SilverWave
As I screwed up my TTH setting and I am having to go back through and reset everything by hand, I came across this story and reread it again.

Brilliant, reading through the comments I was pleased to see that it is not abandoned!

Also nice to see you are going to keep it supernatural free.

Thanks :)

Thanks for the review.

I have acually been writing more of the next part over the last week so as long as my new beta works out it could be posted soon?

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from Martin
Its a wonderful story. And I would love a couple more chapters. It doesn't have to be any big action scenes. Maybe a bit like a Gilmore show, with the ending having Buffy/Joyce tell and show the Gilmore girls that Buffy is a Slayer. Don't try to follow the shows any after your story starts.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I have a lot more to add - I just happen to be suffering writers block, I have not written anything since last October. I do not want the Gilmore Girls knowing anything about the supernatural as I think it would so freak out Lorelai that it would destroy her bubbly personality.

As for following the shows this starts after the end of season five and will end before season six would start on Buffy - Although of course, six would be different in that Buffy did not die.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from MBB
I'm sorry, but this latest chapter does not really work for me. Not sure if it is because I haven't read fanfic for a while or because you tried to cram too much in one chapter.

The Buffy-Joyce talk: The Buffy overreacting and protenting was classic Buffy, but after the first shock it felt that Buffy came on too strong, but you nicely explained that with her abandonement issue, nice twist. The sex thing was (again) funny.

Overall the scene felt decent, but too short. (motivation: I think it might have been better if you had saved the scoobies for later and had it be just Buffy, Giles, Lorelei and Joyce-Willow perhaps, she had good lines, then they could have had more lines, and more suprises later for the others).

Nitpicking, I can't see Anya realise that Giles wants to be alone with Mrs and Mrs Summers-Gilmore (and act on it) - in contrary, I think she'd want to stay and watch. I mostly noticed the contrast because you used 'Anya' and 'Realised' in the same sentence just after she was talking about artificial penisses - Very good Anya line by the way. :-P

About the marriage/engagement talks
While you used it twice in goods way to bring up the next topic, Lorelei can not congratulate Anya on getting married, as it happened in the final episode of season5, and (from your Riley-talk) you are still mid season 5. And without all the S5-stuff (Glory etc), would Xander have proposed at all? (I thought yes, Anya thougth no)

Secondly, are they going to ask willow Willow questions about her statement about wanting to marry Tara?
It is likely for Willow to know that anyway (researchgirl), so I'm guessing you brought it up for a reason. Yes, Willow has the dreamy love (although less the Buffy) that could have made her think of it, or Xander&Anya's engagement (?) could have brought it up, but it seems pretty early in their relationship to talk about.


The Xander-Riley talk
I'm disappointed you still have Buffy and Riley split because I like the paring, especially after you particulary mentioned they did not split up at the start of the story.
But it works well with what is happening in the story. and it is good that you finally give the timeperiod the story is playing in. (But was it already collage summer holiday that early in the year?, I thought the episode was before christmas?)

About the Buffy being with Faith, it was a suprise and I can't see why you needed it for the story, but I'm not opposed to it either. (as long as it does not turn in an 'everybody's bi'-fic ;-) ).
But I am curious how carefull you work out the details; Did they just have feelings, or did they act on it? Did Buffy feel she cheated on Angel, is that why Faith shot him? You already brought up Willow's anthipathy for Faith; did she have feelings for Buffy? Faith? Or just (standard canon) because she felt closed out? Would that change if she finds out? Does answering all this leave room for the main plot of Joyce and Lorelei?

Further I have some personal issues with Xander still dreaming of Faith after she practically tried to attempt-rape him (Consequences, Not Zeppo). But As Joss doesn't care much about rape I realise that it probebly isn't much of an issue in Jossverse (or it's audience).

On the other hand, I wasn't really convinced by the shows version of this talk, and you added enough surprises and changes to make it your own.

So like I said, I'm not so positive about this chapter, but I got the impression you're soon going to move some of the characters to the Gillmore's house, so then I'm going to be a lot less critical and a lot more entertained because I don't know much about that show. :-)

PS: Sorry for all the edits, but I got interrupted during the reviewing and after reading it over realised there were some mistakes and I\d forgotten something.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you could not get into this part!

Okay I concede your point although at times Anya did show some insight into other peoples feelings but still found it hard to express them around others (The scene in The Body where she is not sure how she should feel about Joyce’s death!) With fan fiction, you can always get around things like this by changing the character’s attitude to any given situation (Not saying this is what I am doing here!) I think Anya had great potential to grow especially if season six did not happen as it did in the show! If Joyce had been there for the gang to go to with their problems would it have changed things (absolutely).

I wanted them all together. It would be like anyone of us going to meet someone at a friend’s house with no knowledge of what was going to happen and before any talk can take place, our friend runs away.

I am sorry you did not like the part with Buffy and Riley splitting up? It was always my intention to have them break up but wanted it to take place a little different from canon. Yes in the show they did break up early in season but again this is fan fiction.

No not going to end up with everyone bi. As I said it just flowed out as I typed it! I always felt that within season three there was so much subtext between the two slayers that although nothing was stated in the show they did at least make out!

Normally when I start a story, I know where it will start, what will happen overall, and where I want it to end but much of the filling just comes from actually writing it. I may have Buffy actually visit Faith before she goes with her mother and stepmother to Stars Hollow but at this moment, I do not know if I will actually add that to the story or just refer to it. Did Willow have feelings for Buffy? In this story, no, but in many of my other stories - absolutely.

This story will always be focussed on Joyce and Lorelai.

I did not say he still fantasized about Buffy and Faith just that he used to. Hands up any straight male that thinks it would have been rape if someone like Faith or any other sexy female insisted you had sex with them when you were 17-18? Rape will never be a part of any of my stories.

You really should watch The Gilmore Girls. I am not sure who I will have travel to Stars Hollow at the moment other than it will not include Xander and Anya, I may have Giles go with Joyce, Buffy and Lorelai on his way to England for some reason? We will have to see?



Added:- I did say the Glory fight did happen just that Buffy did not die and Dawn did not get sent to her. So Xander proposed as canon, it is just that as Buffy did not die they felt able to tell everyone.

Asking Willow about her statement? Maybe but not relevant to the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from zigpal
great update. I hope Buffy likes crow because she is going to have to eat heaps of it, and who knows maybe she meet a hottie in Connecticut after she makes peace with after saying goodbye to Captain Cardboard.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Yes probably so! I do not know? I cannot think of any Gilmore character she could pair with? Taylor maybe? Eww lol.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from Infinix
I guess it is inevitable a fic starts out with a very odd and interesting pairing and by ch 7 it has progressed to an examination of just how incredibly screwed up Buffy is (not saying it is understandable but the girl has never been very stable, a card house of insecurities built on an unstable foundation of complexes, neuroses and traumas.
Comments from author:
It does seem that way. But later seasons especially six did see Buffy more unstable! But how many of us could stay sane if we went through everything she went through! Who would want too?
