Review of chapter "Prologue" from tals
Review:
I like your idea for the crossover, but I must admit that the story seems too out of character for me. If you had simply said: Elizabeth will be Calypso (a plot point I think has a lot of potential, and which I would have liked in the movie as well), and therefore OOC, and Xander will be her son, and therefore also slighty OOC in some regards, I could probably accept the those changes. However, you've changed too many aspects of the story (in relation to canon), to make it all seem in character.

Angel is suddenly Xander's mate? While the explanation is factually acceptable, I lack the emotional backstory: it's a huge change from canon, and I think it deserves more than just a few lines. How did Angel react to his feelings to Xander? How'd Xander react to the kiss? Why aren't they both freaking out just a little? When I picked up this story, coming from a canon point of view, Xander certainly wasn't gay or bisexual (as Cordy, Willow, Anya, and assorted demon chicks could tell you). Nor was there any proof of Angel being other than heterosexual (although, in his case it is easier to argue that as a vampire with such a long lifespan, he might have other views on sexuality). I don't have any problem with the two of them being/becoming mates, but I do need a little more backstory, exploring their feelings and reactions to some rather large changes from their canon personalities.

Also: Why is Xander suddenly thinking about himself as Alex? I understand Elizabeth's/Calypso's tendency to call him by his full name, Xander doesn't sound like a PotC kinda name, and I actually think that is very much in character. But I am somewhat puzzled by Xander thinking of himself as Alex. A whole life of being Xander, and now he's suddenly Alex?

Always end on a positive note: I really like your idea for the crossover, and I think it has a lot of potential. The plot (as far as I can tell after the third chapter) is sound, and very interesting. Your explanation of Buffy putting a spell on Angel, (with some help from Willow) is a nice way to explain why he'd act so in love with her despite being Xander's mate. It works quite nicely in the context.

Have fun writing, and enjoy your story.

Regards Tals

Thanks for the review. I'm planning on flashbacks on Xander's behalf to give the story a bit more depth. As for him not freaking.. Well I've always thought he protested bit too much on NOT being gay. And besides I love to have Xander get his guy smoochies and ect. I'm obsessed with it in fact.

And On the Alex note. I'll fit an explaination for that in, but for now Xander represents A life of being taken for granted, of being nothing special, a fact he knows isn't so since his parantage. He needed to seperate himself from that and so he began thinking of himself as Alex at a younger age.

I really appreciate your review though. It does point out plot area's I haven't fully covered yet. I hope I can cover it fully enough for your satification. As for the OOC'ness I can't really help it and I apologise, but I needed to change things to make it make sense in my own mind. lol

Review of chapter "Chapter One: The Rage" from Kirallie
Review:
As if thrrowing himself into the sea could kill Calypso's child. So Elizabeth gave birth to him? Was Will his dad then? Good work! Stupid Buffy! She deserves whatever Calypso throws at her!
