Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Four" from Veracity
Thank you for updating! These rare surprises always make these long waits worth it. I've read this story 5 times over the years always to be disappointed at the end. So close to finishing only to be seemingly abandoned. Again I can't thank you enough for updating and hopefully finishing this amazing story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Three" from Calypso
I spent a few days savouring this story. I truly hope that all is well in your life and that you are still alive and kicking. 'Cause let me tell you I loved reading this.
At first I struggled to get into the swing of it, mainly because I wanted to "get on with it" than read about some Maia (I've been told that patience is a virtue). However, I am glad I stuck with it and read everything you've posted so far. I love the story you weaved, your descriptions, the manner in which Buffy changes. For example, how she sometimes uses her own lingo and then steadily the manner of her speech changes as the story progress and time pass.
I like that she isn't infallible, how she feels so much, how she always gets up and tries again. I like the fire of her spirit you painted. You just can't keep a good girl down. :)
The title including the little reminders you've inserted about Dawn plays havoc with my mind and I can't help making presumptions about a very convoluted connection between Aragorn and Anariel then her rebirth as Buffy and guardian, then sister, to the Key which was made from her. And going by the words of Spike "it's always about the blood", well, it does make me think of all kinds of ways you are headed to an end…which to be frank I can't quite see yet. And her Destiny. Whatever it may be.
What is she fighting for? Freedom? For Men as described in the tomb with her father? And after her Destiny is revealed, well will she be alive at the end of it? And will she end up among Men, or among Elves in the Undying Lands ('cause let's face it, she is extraordinary and if anyone deserves it she does).
And I am still waiting for her greatest love to stick his head out. Glorfindel helped her, certainly cares for her, and there is history there. But according to Spike he isn't the love of her life (if I understand correctly). At the moment I am undecided. And maybe you are too! Hahaha!
Therefore, if you are still alive and kicking and managed to survive 2012 and 2013 I'd like to tell you that I loved reading this story. And I dearly hope that you can finish it…preferably within this year! :) Which is also the reason for an imperfect score (if you wish to know). The only reason this does not get ten stars is because it is unfinished. Otherwise, well done.
All the best for the new year, may it be prosperous and blessed for you and your loved ones.

I just finished re-reading this story, and I love it just as much now as I did when I was reviewing each chapter! You're a talented writer, with a very compelling storyline!

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Three" from Callista
I didn't really know what to expect from this story, but I loved it. I did think some parts of it are a bit confusing... Why did Glorfindel arrange for her to be taken away? Because she needed more freedom than she would get at Rivendel, to get strong... And who is the mysterious elf she loved? You always said Glorfindel is a Giles-like figure for Buffy, but with the last chapter I could almost believe it was Glorfindel she loved. And what exactly is her destiny? Not to rule as a Queen, not to defeat the First (since they hadn't counted on it appearing again in ME), so my guess is that she is meant to help defeat Sauron (and now defeat the First) and live happily ever after... But I could be wrong. (I'm still hoping for a Haldir/Buffy pairing, even though it seems unlikely. I liked the little moment they had during the battle for Helm's Deep...)
Anyway, thank you for posting, I loved it, and hopefully you'll update soon!

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Three" from MarcusSLazarus
The nature of the crossover was confusing at first, but it was definitely intriguing with a not-inconsiderable amount of potential, and the subsequent possibilities raised by Buffy’s visions were very interesting eve before she arrived in Middle-Earth and was re-introduced to her brother.
Events might have been a bit abrupt at times- I still don’t quite get why Buffy was suddenly taken from Rivendell at the end; it felt more like the elves were trying to humour her desire to do something rather than taking her seriously-, but her activities in Rohan certainly made an impact, and the idea of the First manipulating Gondor was certainly original.
Sucks that Theodred still died, of course, but at least the upcoming final fight should be interesting...

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Three" from bradsan
I really hope you will update soon. Oh and please don't let Buffy die for once give her some happiness. There are so many stories where she dies or unfinished and you don't know if she will become happy. it's depressing so please let her be happy and alive.

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Three" from bradsan
you really did a good job. I can't wait for the next chapters. I hope there will be a chapter to read what happens after the battle. Where we could read what happens in life after the war.
I hope for more interaction between Buffy and Aragorn. I mean he don't know all of Buffy's live before she came back, does he? I would like to read his reaction, after all he has another "sister/niece" Dawn in another world. Like to know how he will react on Buffy story. all of it.
I love it how they show how much they care about each other, they love, fight and would die for each other, That's how family must act. You can 'fight" with each other but in the end you will never abandoned the other. I missed that with Dawn. Buffy and Aragorn are showing more love and affection to each other than Dawn ever did.
I hope you won't wait to long. I would like to read more.

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty-Three" from chrysanne
Goodness, you certainly don't disappoint, my dear. This last chapter...lord, all I can say is that it touched something deep in my heart, and just would not let go. All the way to the end, there was this sense of profound peace that seemed to settle over me as Buffy came to accept, even embrace, what could be her true end. Just my sense, anyway, don't know if that's what you were going for.
And...is Glorfindel kind of like an early-Elia version of Giles? Father-figure like?
