Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Um small unit tactics, surgical strategy (which includes research and troop support personelle), and taking a front line position. If you know the history of military tactics and a lot of mythology you can dramatize this. If this is not your strong point, then you'll have to refer to it in broad strokes and dramatize the waiting moments between battles, before and after, etc. with a few moments excerpted from some of the bigger cannon elements that you AU. The initiative is a threat or a possible ally - Xander would need to find out. He'd probably enroll in the college to get closer to them or actually work in a college facility that the soldiers would be likely to interact in. Giles would have conflict in deciding how to support Xander, and if he can be the better angel - despite his own foray into darkness in the past. Willow would be the least accepting, and Xander would have to neutralize her as a threat -- or angst over not neautralizing her. Willow might be researching ways to stop Ares' influence... or maybe Xander could actually convince her to be on his side because of the ends justifying the means -- playing on her own internal weaknesses. But then Xander would have to deal with having corrupted and manipulated her... so maybe he'd bind her powers and try get her to be research and potions girl???

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Caliadragon
Review:
I love that you are continuing with this. It would interesting to see Xena and Gabby, the clones, come to Sunnydale and instead of condeming Xander offering to help.


I look forward to the next part.

Thanks

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from jbjewel
Review:
I loved seeing the new chapter. For suggestions,
#1 Ares's involvement: Giles and Wesley. An Olympian god lending protection to the Hellmouth? Especially Ares. They HAVE to flip. I can't see the PTB's being at all happy about this. Angel is still their champion. Just having Ares involved is going to freak them out. The Watcher's Council how are they going to react. Faith is in jail. No new slayer with Buffy's death. They have lost power and face but here is untold power. How can they get their hands on it?
#2 Xander's involvement: Willow, Dawn, Cordelia and Tara will definitely be more concerned about Xander. For Willow, he is the normal one. He has just given up any chance of EVER being normal again. Most importantly he did so without talking about it to anyone, meaning her. Also, he has been keeping secrets. BIG secrets. Dawn will be worried about the changes in him. She would need stability and her biggest stabilizer is going to be changed. Cordelia and Tara will be thinking about Xander the person not the friend. They have a bit more distance that the rest. Giles, Wesley and Angel will be seeing this as bad. You said that the Champion of War will be either Saviour or destroyer. I think that that's what they will obsess about.
#3 Hercules has to show up. Ares now has a Champion. This changes everything. I would love to see both Strife and Aphrodite show up.
#4 What was the vow? Why was it made? Is Xander descended from Xena?
#5 What powers if any does Xander have? What are the steps that Ares takes to protect the hellmouth? What does Ares want Xander to do? What will this cost Xander? I personally follow the belief that no power can come without a price.
#6 Strangely I see Spike as being a voice of reason. Questionable at times but reason. This is practical in a weird sort of way. As long as he gets to fight I think that he would be ok with it.

Hope that some of this helps and I will wait for the next chapter. Good luck.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from kayron
Review:
So Spike heard of a tale that Ares' Champion could bring light or darkness to the world. Xander's family had some kind of vow where they wouldn't Champion Ares. So it looks like there is some conflict here. What will the consequences be for Xander having accepted Ares' patronage? If the Willow brings Buffy back, as in cannon, there will likely be problems between her and Xander. The things that Xander was thinking about her, at the graveyard, indicated that he had problems with Buffy's attitude. If she does come back, wouldn't that cause her to be under Ares' mantle of protection, as a Champion of the Hellmouth, as well? Wouldn't this cause more conflict with Xander? If she doesn't come back, then the First would have no opportunity to invade Earth. Resurrection = more conflict. No resurrection = no first, instead focus goes to the prophecy involving Xander. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Neverwillmini
Review:
Wow, I never thought I'd see more on this - glad to be wrong!

Maybe we can learn more about Xander's bloodline and what the vow was? Is he descended from or a reincarnation of Xena? What knowledge did Ares give Xander? Is your Ares looking for general mayhem and destruction, or is there more purpose behind his wars? Will Giles, Willow and the rest know about Xander, or will Spike & Xander keep it quiet? Are there any other Olympian gods around and do they have any champions?
