Review of chapter "What do you give the girl who has everything?" from RavenMorbisk
I loved it, from beginning to end.
and I really liked that you didn't clichè the thing by having Willow or Anya the caster.

Review of chapter "What do you give the girl who has everything?" from (Current Donor)MarcusRowland
VERY nice - I had a feeling it wasn't going to be something as simple as wishes, but I wasn't quite expecting Faith to be the goddess. Excellent!
Comments from author:
Thank you sir!
(Hm! Your profile is interesting. You write RPG's? It doesn't really show in this story, since there's almost no action in there, but in most of my stuff you can see traces of my many years of running RPG's. Laying out the fights and NPC actions, describing the environments for the players--I mean 'readers', making sure the rules of the 'verse are spelled out clearly... more than one person has pegged my background after reading a story. Not sure if that's a compliment or something I need to correct....)

Anyways, thanks for the review.
(And sorry for all the typos in this story; I hadn't realized how bad it was till I reread it, but Ack!)

Review of chapter "The true face of... evil?" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Have always loved this story.

One of these days, I'd like to know how we get from Interludes, Of Things That Are Not, Virtues, to Bedtime Story. ;) Kira and Faith make for a fascinating relationship.
Comments from author:
I see a lot of embarassing glitches in it, now that I'm rereading it, but I'm still fond of this one.

Linking together the different stories....
Man, I've got so much of this that I COULD write that it's daunting.
(I do that a lot; map out huge plotlines for stories--The new thing, with Harmony? I can do seven novel's worth, easy. Kinda sad, really.)

So, yeah. The stuff is there. Now, so long as some scientist somewhere invents that immortality serum in time, I'll be able to get all of it written down eventually.

Review of chapter "Twas the night before christmas" from MarkYoung
If someone were granting wishes around me, I'd wish to be half as good a writer as the people who post their stories here. Then maybe I could write stuff like what you have.

Ummm. That was supposed to be a compliment.

Damn. Seems like no one's granting wishes around me!

Oh, well.

I'm enjoying the story. Thanks for writing it!

(Seriously -- enjoying; thanks.)
Comments from author:
Seriously, thank you.

I wrote this one more years ago than I like to remember, but there's some nice stuff in there.
Hopefully I'm better at the writing now, though.

Review of chapter "The happiest time of the year" from TheatricalBarrister
This keeps getting better and better … and you said you had a hard time with drama. Even though you've written this from Buffy's POV, I'm totally empathizing with Faith right now.

So, um, let's see. Constructive criticism. It's hard to think of much to criticize about this, but one thing I have noticed is a lack of "Buffyisms". Not that big a thing, it's just a thing.

Review of chapter "Twas the night before christmas" from TheatricalBarrister
Another well written chapter. And so quick to update, too! ;-)

If guilt over Jenny's death is to be a factor in Buffy's giving Faith a chance, I might have dwelt more on Buffy's angst about that here, but perhaps you'll do that in future updates. I'm certain that you know more about writing fanfic than I do.

Review of chapter "Everthing is fluffy and good and nice; really." from JasonBarnett
Interesting start. And not bad. But really, why should Buffy even consider what Jenny is asking.
Comments from author:
--But really, why should Buffy even consider what Jenny is asking.--

Because Giles, her father-figure asked her to?
Or perhaps because of guilt. She thinks to herself in chapter two that Jenny's death can be traced pretty directly back to Buffy herself. That it was Buffy who freed Angelus, Buffy who failed to kill him when given the chance, and therefore Buffy who's carrying around a ton of baggage about the whole thing.
So that's a reason.
Now, the question is, will she really just take all this at face value?

Review of chapter "Twas the night before christmas" from TheatricalBarrister
This is a very well written start to the story. Nice cliffhanger.

You did a very good job describing the action of the fight. A lot of fight sequences tend to become too convoluted to keep track of where everyone is, and who is doing what, making me dislike them on principle, but yours was well written and easy to follow, and I enjoyed it.

Faith showing up to save the day wasn't exactly a surprise to me, seeing as that was pretty much in the summary, but it was handled well. I'm a little bit surprised that she didn't seem to have any 'tude, no matter what she is up to.

Keep up the good work. I hope there's more soon.
Comments from author:

Action is easy, I find. Drama, now; *that's* difficult.

And... you'll be sort of amazed at how soon there will be more.
