Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from JennyLal
Review:
This is turning into a very interesting story. I loved Cordelia's complete "whatever" attitude to House - he'd better get used to it! Is the Council aware of Buffy? I'd imagine they'd have tried to get her out of an institution.
Comments from author:
Good point about the Council. I haven't decided yet what role they'll be playing in this fic. I plan on bringing Giles in eventually, but I'm thinking that perhaps with the confusion of Merrick's death and both Joyce and Hank leaving town, that the Council "lost" their slayer for a bit.

Comments from author:
Could you be more specific about what sorts of details you would like? I'd be glad to try, but I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from SamJames
Review:
This is a very different take on the Scooby gang, yet everyone is in character despite their very different circumstances. I've never seen House but you make these characters work too.
Comments from author:
Thanks! House is a really intriguing show, with some fun characters. It's a challenge to merge it with the Buffyverse characters, but I'm enjoying it. Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Moderator)JoeHundredaire
Review:
You're totally missing the point of the review. The fact that you find it LESS of a bad coincidence/everyone's related fic because it's pre-S1 makes it even worse. It's not that the Scoobies end up together, it's that you chose to do a near-total merger of the respective casts using the same cliched plot device (blood relations) to merge each Buffy member to a House member. Except Willow, of course, although I wouldn't find myself surprised if she turns out to be House's long-lost second cousin twice removed or something. That's what forces us to trigger suspension of disbelief, that these four people that would be connected by fate just so happen (in your world) to be connected by a mass of biological and corporate relationships.

And for the record, if I could talk Jinni into it, I'd personally go through all 8396 stories on this site and nuke each and every "all-human AU" and the related subtypes.
Comments from author:
I don't buy that it's any more of a coincidence that four people could meet up because their parents/guardians work together than it is that four people would meet up for any other reason. If they'd all met up on a bus somewhere, but they weren't related, would that be less of a coincidence, given that it isn't a "mass of biological and corporate relationships"? If you're doing an AU of the canon right from the start, then ANY way that four people meet up is going to require some sort of coincidence- there are billions of people in the world, and you're bringing four of them together. The chances of these four people meeting in any way are astronomical. That said, astronomical chances, in and of themselves, aren't exactly a thing the Buffyverse shies away from. It's a wonderful "coincidence" that Angel, Cordelia, and Wesley all ended up in LA at the same time, met up with each other, and started working together. And then Spike and Harmony, too. How "convenient." And what about the fact that Joyce just happened to move to a town that sat on top of a Hellmouth? What are the chances of that happening? That's just horribly convenient. Even the chances that Buffy, Xander, Willow, and Cordelia would all be only children seems like a rather convenient coincidence that allows the shows' writers not to deal with expanding the supporting cast with siblings.

Honestly, if you don't like a particular kind of fic (for instance, reincarnation fics where all the scoobies end up together, or fics that merge two canons with something that you think is cliche) then your time would probably be better spent reading and reviewing something else. You write primarily slash- if someone reviews your story saying what basically amounts to "I don't like slash," you'd probably give their opinion as little weight as I'm giving yours here. It's not that I don't appreciate that you have opinions or that you share them; it's just that since you acknowledged that you're review has more to do with the KIND of fic I'm writing than the writing or story itself, I don't feel compelled to give it much mind.

To me, randomly turning canonically straight characters gay or bi- especially multiple characters- seems like quite an unlikely "coincidence," too. And it's horribly cliched. But in that case, based on your profile, I get the feeling that you'd argue that what should be important about a story is whether or not the author pulls it off, which is what I think should be important about every story. The premise is what it is; it isn't going to change. If you've got suggestions for how I can pull this premise off better, I'd love to hear them.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from CPTSkip
Review:
Somehow I have missed reading your story up until now. I am sorry because I have been totally impressed with what I have read. I'm not sure about the House characters since I dont' watch the show, but the Scoobies are very "real". And you made me laugh out loud several times. I hope you write more of this story because I will be looking for any updates. Thanks for an excellent story, so far. Lol!
Comments from author:
The story has only been up for a day, so you haven't missed out on much. ;)

I'm glad you're enjoying it. I hope the House parts aren't too confusing!

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from zili
Review:
I like your House quips they're really funny. Especially the one about Chase having great hair. Can't wait for the next update.
Comments from author:
Thanks! It's so hard to tell if the dialogue, which I hear in my mind said in House's voice, translates to the page. So much of his personality comes across in the delivery that it's hard to capture it on the page.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Recent Donor)dreamfall
Review:
Yay! Continues to amuse. Cordy continues to steal the show, but I'm enjoying the whole thing, and looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
I've always loved season 1 Cordy. Once Buffy's back to herself, however, I'm hoping they'll be some back and forth with the show stealing.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Awww... I like this :)

Warm fuzzies! Excellent potential for diagnosis.

Very random coincidences though. Maybe Willow, once she learns how to use magic, if she does, could explain it as some sort of 'collision point of story threads' type of thing? Like the the universe itself was pulling for this to happen? ;)
Comments from author:
I was thinking of maybe doing something similar. In this universe, though, Cordy has never met Willow and Xander before, and Buffy has met any of them, so the coincidence factor is just that Cordy and Buffy happened to fall into their siblings' custody at the same time. I do like the idea, though, that no matter what had happened in Buffy's life, the PTB would have given her the Scoobies. One thing changes (in this case, Joyce not being Buffy's birth mother and no longer being a part of her life) and because of that, destiny ensures that Wills and Xander would end up at Buffy's ultimate destination. It's a fun idea! Thanks for the review. The next chapter is now up!

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from spk
Review:
You definitely have my interest. I love the way that you had Cordy tell off House. Can't wait to see what trouble the Scoobies can cause. I also can't wait to see the interactions between House and Buffy...oh the sarcasm there will be. :)
Comments from author:
There will be much sarcasm- though first Buffy has to convince everyone she's not crazy. Still, I think Buff and Cordelia will keep House on his toes.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from physicsteach
Review:
Well written, though the pace is more than a little forced, but the fun idea wins me over.

House v. Cordy. The world may not survive the Snark-a-Rama(TM).
Comments from author:
The pace should slow down once I get all the characters in place. When I first started writing the fic, I came really close to stipulating the AU parts (as in "Buffy is Cameron's half-sister and moved in with her instead of moving to Sunnydale; Cordelia's parents went bankrupt early, and her older brother, Chase, got custody of her) and then starting once all the characters were in place. I didn't think that would be at all fair to readers, because I wanted them to see how it could be at least conceivable that Buffy Summers and Cameron would be half-siblings (despite the fact that neither had a canon sibling with a different last name) and how Cameron and Chase could even possibly inherit custody. So these first few chapters have been my effort at showing readers how this came to be, without writing an entire fic based on that alone.

Please let me know if the pace isn't more to your liking once all of the characters are in place. I'll work on it.
