Review of chapter "Chapter One Hundred-Nineteen: I Will Remember You" from Dusel
...Well...I enjoyed your story...until chapter 30 or something, that's when I stopped reading. Sorry, to me it had a nice beginning, but now... have fun writing.
Comments from author:
I have to admit to being a bit disappointed that you lost interest at this point in the story. I guess it won’t help telling you that Buffy isn’t really Buffy, that an evil Maia has taken possession of her body in an attempt to disrupt her life. Oh well, I had to try. LOL! I appreciate your giving my story a try, and realize it’s not for everyone.

Review of chapter "Chapter One: Revelations" from Dusel
This really reminds me of the story First Knight, I like it, I like it very much. Smacked it on my tracking list and will be spending much time on it in the future.
Comments from author:
I’ve never read First Knight, so I can’t comment on any similarities in content. However, this story takes place in the First Age, with an entirely different set of characters, which in my opinion, makes it quite different. I hope you enjoy the read nonetheless.

Review of chapter "Chapter One Hundred-Eighteen: The Killer in Me" from AntiCreator
Awesome but irritating. We've waited, what, three chapters to find out who killed Olofin. Just as we're about to find out, once again you don't tell us. Maybe the next chapter, eh?

I must admit, seeing Buffy at her ruthless best is just great. So Allandro (or Pallando, as I'm guessing this is the Istari), finally gets what he deserves. And Rome along with him.

Who is Morgon? Is he a Second, Third or Fourth age child or is my memory really bad and he's her child with Morgoth, I mean, the names are so similar. Morgon son of Morgoth. Sounds about right.

Talking of Morgoth, is he still in the void, is he out and on his way to earth, or are dark forces going to attack Valinor and set him free?

And Illyria. Looking forward to that. Are we gonna find out how any of the AI crew are? I mean, Wesley and Cordelia are dead, I assume Gunn is also ("You won't last ten minutes"). Lorne legged it but he may have come back.

Will Buffy end up with Maglor, Glorfindel or Sargon? I know you won't tell me but I reckon it will be one of them three.

Finally I just want to say this. I know this is just a story and all, but I really like your vision of the End of Earth. Destroying everything and starting completely from scratch may really be the only answer to the world's many problems. A new start for mankind. I like that.
Comments from author:
LOL! You'll find out who's responsible for Olofin's death soon enough. Be patient, my friend, all will be revealed in good time.

Sorry, but I'm not gonna reveal anything else about Morgon. I debated about mentioning him at all, but decided that it would be a little teaser of stories to come.

Buffy freed Morgoth and his legions of followers from the Void near the end of chapter 116. They're on their way to earth to wage war against both Folkvang and Valinor. Ironically, Dagor Dagorath is the only battle I won't be writing about in detail, although I will give you glimpses of the aftermath of the war.

You'll see Illyria and the rest of the AI gang in upcoming chapter(s). You'll find out what fate has in store for each one of them. Can't say any more than that.

You're right. I won't tell you who Buffy will end up with. You'll have to keep on reading to find that out. :-)

Glad you like my version of the end of the world. I want to integrate elements of The Silmarillion, The Bible and mythology with a sprinkling of "current" conspiracy theories to make things seem a bit more realistic.

I thank you for taking the time to leave me feedback. As always, it's greatly appreciated.

Review of chapter "Chapter 117: That Old Gang of Mine" from AntiCreator
First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Okay. That was more like it. You were right. That's the sort of thing I was thinking of. I like the calender being the 12th rather than the 21st. It's nice to be a little different. And I'm really glad that they believed who she was.

Still, some surprises. Dawn and Connor, weird but I guess it kinda makes sense. Xander and Willow. Big surprise. Forgot to mention by the way when I first started reviewing, well done for getting rid of Kennedy. Was there ever a more annoying girl than her? Anyway, Xander and Willow, it makes sense also. I mean we know there was definitely some attraction in series 3. Plus, if there was ever a couple in the whole show that has more chance of staying together then I haven't seen them. The marriages that usually work best are the ones when the couple was friends before. And these two have been best friends for many years. Plus the kids.

I'm reviewing this chapter and the next one together, so I'll save my questions for the next review.
Comments from author:
And a Happy New Year to you too.

I thought that this chapter was more of what you were expecting. Who doesn't like a happy reunion, after all?

Dawn and Connor - weird, yes, but necessary. Xander and Willow - I always loved the thought of them together. I'm a firm believer that the strongest and most stable relationships are based on a solid foundation of friendship, and consider myself lucky to fall in that category.

And you're right, Kennedy was the most irritating character on the show, although I believe that both Cordelia and Harmony tie for second. Not big fans of them either.

Review of chapter "Chapter One: Revelations" from Millaros
You know, you should have a country dedicated to you.

I would even sing your country's nationaly anthem everyday for you!

*singing off-tune*

All hail the Great God Laurelin....
Comments from author:
*laughs* I must say I’ve never had a review of this sort before. I don’t know whether to call you a blasphemer, or if I should tell you to fall to your knees and sing, well, I rightly don’t know what you should sing. Never gave any thought to what *my* anthem would be. Nevertheless, glad that you’re enjoying the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One Hundred-Sixteen: End of Days" from AntiCreator
O-Kay. I wasn't expecting that, not at all. I thought that this chapter may answer some of my questions, instead it's just created more. Was Buffy's purpose to bring about the end of the world then? At first I thought it must be Melkor's evil spirit in her, but thinking about it, I guess someone had to do it.

Any idea on how may chapters are left then? I just think that if you can manage a million words, your fic would not only be unbeatable in content but also in length, but I don't see how you could get it that length, unless you decide to continue with the other ages and have them under the same story.

Is this chapter set in 2012, or are you like me? How could any civilization really have any idea when the world will end. No one knows when the Mayans actually began their calender but cycles of 5,128 years, with this one beginning in 3114BC seems a little far fetched to me. I guess we'll find out then eh?

Sorry, I digress. Great chapter, and dramatic. Buffy's reunion with her friends didn't go quite as I thought it would. In fact, it went nothing like I thought it would. See, I'm constantly surprised when I'm reading this. Now, I really can't wait to see what will happen. Please don't take too long to update, although if it's one of your extra long chapters, I'm willing to wait as long as it takes, 'cause they're always amazing. Laters.
Comments from author:
I have to throw you some curve balls every now and again, right? You can't expect to see everything coming. LOL! I do believe that the next chapter might be more of what you're expecting than this one was. And yes, it was Buffy's destiny to bring about the end of the world.

I hate to commit to how many chapters are left since I've already told you once, and here I am, still plugging away. My muse takes great pleasure in proving me wrong, much to my embarrassment. Right now, my focus is on wrapping up the storylines and showing the fate of the major players in the Buffy/Angel verse. One thing I can say with certainty is that this story will *not* reach a million words.

Please don't hate me, but yes, I have chosen 2012 as the year. Cliché? Probably. But, in my defense, I don't follow the Mayan calendar to a T. Hopefully, you won't be disappointed.

Once again, I thank you kindly for taking the time to leave me some feedback.

Review of chapter "Chapter 115: The Girl in Question, Part 2" from AntiCreator
AMAZING! I get two read two chapters in one and they are both awesome. With the inevitable cliffhanger of course. I had wondered how we'd see her reunion with her friends at the end of the story, without going through the other ages first, but of course, it all makes sense.

One thing I do find a little confusing though. The fact that she came from the end of days to the First age at the beginning of the tale, she's lived through all the other ages since and then the Valar decide to make her a slayer, when she's already been one, so she lives through twenty odd years that she's already lived through before, exactly the same way as she did the first time and it all gets a little jumbled up in my head. You said you wouldn't put her in an endless cycle, but bloody hell it was a near thing.

I like the fact that you made Buffy the creator of the hobbits. I've often wondered if Tolkien even had any ideas for their creation, they seem to be absent from all of his work written before The Hobbit, so I reckon he created them for The Hobbit, dropped hints and characters from his mythology in there which made The Hobbit a part of it and maybe never got round to adding their origins into the mythology. He covers this fact up by saying they don't even know of their own origins, but surely if he had any idea, he would have written it somewhere. Or maybe he did and I just haven't seen it. It was sad to hear of their demise. I had hoped they may still live in secret somewhere. Are any of them still alive or is every single one of them gone? The humans who hunted them and kept their heads as trophies, are they based on a real or specific people or was it just Man in general?

Olorin. In your head is he in appearance, still the aged Istar he was in Middle Earth or did he revert back to his Maia form when he returned to Valinor?

The Valar really have got some nerve. They've already proven that when they interfere in Buffy's life it always goes wrong, so they should really have just let her be, but then of course if they hadn't interfered this time then Buffy wouldn't have been a slayer. But she already had been, so didn't she have to be and wouldn't she know that something was going to happen and this is what I mean about me not quite getting this part.

I wasn't surprised about Anno and Mire's deaths of course. Ever since they were born you made it quite clear that they were the Oracles, and as anyone who's seen series one of Angel knows, Vocah killed them. Interesting to hear that he was one Buffy and Melkor's children though. One death I was surprised at was Olofin's. I guess I just assumed he would be there until the very end like Luthor (good to see him back by the way). Was his killer someone we know from the Buffy verse, someone new or maybe Allandro himself?

With regards to the return of Luthor. Did he go to Folkvang when he first died? I don't think Buffy had been back there between then and getting thrown into the French Revolution by the Valar so that would make sense, or did Buffy have to arrange or bargain for him to go to Folkvang somehow?

I'm also curious to know. I take it that Buffy has already met Illyria in Fred's form when the slayers aided Angel and his friends against the armies of the Wolf, Ram and Hart but did she survive, and did she recognise Buffy as her mother.

One final thing. It was mentioned that Sargon is quite jealous of his relationship with Buffy, and in the next chapter that Glorfindel is still on the scene. Does this mean that Buffy and Glorfindel are no longer together that way, or do both Glorfindel and Sargon both understand and accept that she is with them both? I think that covers everything. Two chapters, and neither of them short. Laters.
Comments from author:
Holy shit! What a helluva review! You made my day, kind sir! Glad to hear that you enjoyed that last two chapters and that they brought up many questions in that mind of yours. Unfortunately, I can’t answer all of them, as I plan to address some in these last chapters, including the whole Slayer time line thing. But, I can comment on the ones that won’t be.

I always liked the idea of Buffy creating the Hobbits - she and they have a lot of similarities, and not just size. Tolkien never wrote about how they came to be, so it seemed natural for me to have Buffy create them, especially since Aulë created the Naugrim. Sadly, in the Histories, it says that Man hunted them down. Tolkien doesn’t give a time frame for when that happened or which particular race of Man was responsible. The end result was that the Hobbits were eradicated off the earth, something that really pissed Buffy off ‘cause if she had foreseen that, she would’ve brought many of them to Folkvang, to live under her protection. If I recall correctly, the myth of the leprechaun is based on the Hobbits. But don’t hold me to that, as it’s been quite a while since I’ve re-read the Histories.

Yes, in my head I see Olórin keeping his old man form, even in Valinor.

Luthor was sent back to Middle-earth during the Second Age as a peace offering (of sorts) to Buffy. During the French Revolution, he was acting Regent for Olofin in Findor.

Buffy and Illyria did meet during that battle with Wolfram & Hart. Can’t say more than that.

Sargon is most certainly still jealous of the other men in Buffy’s life, but has come to accept it. There are two other lovers that she’s involved with at this particular point in the story. Obviously, Glorfindel’s one, the other I will reveal before the end of the tale. Buffy learned long ago not to bring any lovers to Folkvang.

And, there you have it. Keep reading and you’ll see how things play out. I thank you for your very detailed review.
