Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from RavenMorbisk
A magnificent story !! Really, great !!
Loved it.. !!
Comments from author:
A little sad there at the end, obviously, since it's right after this that Faith finds out that Buffy HAS been lying to her, and that Angel has come back from hell just in time to ruin everything....

ETA: And you gave me a recommendation!
Woo Hoo!!!
::Does Happy Dance::
Thank you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from jupitersdaughter
Awesome! I love that it wasn't easy, and that Faith had to think. Wonderful fic!
Comments from author:
It's never easy.
As for Faith thinking....
Well, she's not nearly as dumb as she thinks she is, especially when it comes to fighting.
(or maybe it's "Especially when it comes to fighting dirty")

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from (Current Donor)Sulien
I came across this late (early?) last night, so this may be a bit incoherent due to lack of sleep. I absolutely love the plot of this, you've come up with a truly unique story and done an excellent job of integrating folklore with the Buffyverse. Did you make up the legend used here, or is it borrowed from one or more tribal legends? I'm curious, because I want to read the original tale if it's borrowed. I think you have Faith's characterization down perfectly and I absolutely love your version of Raven. Lastly, the area of the Santa Lucias there around Ft Hunter-Liggett and the general Big Sur coastline is one of my favorite places to explore and it tickles me pink to see that you've set this story there. Are you from the area? Thank you for sharing this, I can hardly wait for the rest to be posted!
Comments from author:
Hey, thanks for the comment.
Nope, no legend like this that I'm aware of, I just made it up. I did a little research to try and put together a legend/set of circumstances that were sort of in the vein of Native folklore, but it's all just me faking it all the way through.
The wise old Indian has obviously been done over and over, all I could do there was try to not fall too far into cliche (though I pretty much did).
I've never really been out of Kentucky, at least not as an adult, so nope, not writing about the area from personal knowledge. I flipped through an atlas, found the approximate location of Sunnydale according to the Buffy people, and then tried to find a good place for Faith to have her quest. If you're familiar with the area, and not smacking me for getting it terribly wrong, then I'm very, very happy.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from RavenMorbisk
Do you really write that fast or did you finish it already?
Because if you did, you need to post everything because I'm loving this!
Comments from author:
No, I don't write nearly that fast; this is done already.
I'm posting it over the course of a week (on the advice of another reviewer) so that anyone who might be interested in reading it won't miss seeing it fly past on the 'Latest' page.
The three remaining chapters will be up by the end of the weekend.

I'm glad you're enjoying it (I know it's all dark and depressing and stuff--that's just how I see Faith)

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from ShayneT
I'm not sure Faith was as aware of her feelings for Buffy in canon as you have here; she was fairly cruel in talking about Willow not driving stick anymore after all. However, otherwise, I think this is one of the best Faith characterizations I can recall seeing. The level of detail, the quality of the writing...supurb.
Comments from author:
My aim in this, and several others of my stories, is to show something that COULD, conceivably have happened 'off screen', either inside Faith's head, or when she was ignored in favor of Buffy and the others. Sure, this might not be what the show's writers were thinking, exactly, but then again, it might be EXACTLY what happened... maybe.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from (Moderator)Ava
I don't entirely agree with your background for Faith but it's an interesting read nonetheless.
Comments from author:
Well, nobody's going to like everything, but I hope you can get past the bits that bug you and come along for the ride.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Moderator)Kiwikatipo
Hi I'm a Faith fan and everyone has their own interpretations of what they saw on the show, mine differ slightly from yours but that doesn't matter.

I wanted to let you know how well you write Faith and how your stories (this one and Faith in hospital) are very well written, even though I personally don't agree with or enjoy them much.

Your stories are grim and dark often. Too sad for me.

Eg Leonardo di Vinci is great but I don't personally like his art work. So I'm comparing you to Leonardo - sort of- so feel praised here.

My only nitpick with this chapter that I had to comment on was your depressing depiction of the Boston P.D. picking on street kid Faith, even though you said it was only a small element of the force that behaved like that -it was unrealistic. Boston police unlike LA boys in blue do not have a reputation for that kind of brutality.

Yes I'm sure it's possible that some Boston cops behave like that, however I do have an alternate suggestion not just a criticism.

I think it would have read better if Faith'd run into trouble with bastard cops in smalltown Missouri on her way to California.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from darren
I'm liking this very much. The Faith-Buffy subtext was certainly hinted at many times throughout season 3, so it's by no means far fetched. Will you be going AU as things progress, or sticking to canon? The downside of not changing the outcome is that despite what we learn about Faith, we now how bad it's all going to turn out for her.

As you can guess, I'd love to see a more positive outcome, and for Giles to answer a few hard questions about the the whole poor treatment of Faith business.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the comment; absolutely there was Faith/Buffy shown on the show, sometimes subtle, sometimes not so much.
My 'Faithverse' includes a fair number of fics like this one, that fit plausibly (more or less) into the cracks and blank spots of canon, but right after 'Who Are You' (the bodyswitching in Season Four) I go AU, mainly because I don't like Angel very much, and it pissed me off IMMENSELY when she broke down in his arms and cried and was sorry and voluntarily went to sit and rot in jail for a few years.
I wrote a big ol' novel showing the point/story where things branch off; I'll post it here in a couple weeks, after this one and maybe a little more of the Bedtime Story.
