Review of chapter "Chapter One—The Freshman" from vidicon
An interesting story. I must admit Kennedy is not my favourite character but you make her much more likable. And the inclusion of Andrew, Veruca and Warren makes an interesting mix. I must admit though I find Mr. Nottingham more than a little unpleasant, but that was probably your intent. All in all highly enjoyable.
I am confused about the date of Kennedy's assumption of the mantle, in the first Stroy Buffy almost witnesses the death/murder of Faith yet Kennedy seems to receive the power later. Am I misreading or was there a slayer between them?
Thanks for writing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight—Cowboys & Indians, Part I" from clarityfades
I finally caved and read this...only b/c you wrote it, honestly. And I never thought I'd like a Kennedy-centered story so much! Love Andrew standing up for who Buffy truly is (once he was cornered). And I like the 'code of silence' Sunnydale has about Buffy--almost like they're trying to protect their former protector. Now that Warren's getting therapy, I'm liking him more as part of the Scrappy gang. Love that Anya's still around and is offering up more info than in canon. Notty's pretty great, though I want a meeting between him & Buffy even more now. Glad Riley's keeping his mouth shut, but I see the "Cali" story is ahead of this one right now (since Graham & Forrest already know about Kennedy in her story)...it confused me for a minute, but not for long! Interesting take on Veruca, & I like that Tara is around--will she hold off on revealing her 'demon status' as long as canon? Hope not. & I look forward to seeing what happens as Notty tries to get more info out of the Council & Wesley. Oh yeah, excellent use of Doyle, I like the idea of him bouncing between LA & Sunnydale, helping people in both cities. Great story. :)

Perhaps on of the biggest compliments I've ever left as a review... you managed to write a Kennedy/
Warren/ Veruca centered fic that I was not only willing to read, but actually enjoyed.
And if you listen closely, you can hear the sound of little piglets, as they soar gracefully through the air.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight—Cowboys & Indians, Part I" from Kateydidnt
I like this story. You've actually made me respect Kennedy which is hard to do since I REALLY don't like her. I like how you have things going differently, some things Kennedy handles better than Buffy did, somethings Buffy handled better.
Though I am sad to see Spike permanently gone, I do get why, but...you know its Spike... :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight—Cowboys & Indians, Part I" from AllenPitt
At some point you really should do a cross-dimensional jump where Buffy meets the tv show timeline Buffy (ie all the scoobs still alive etc) but brings Kennedy & the scrappies along. The reception where they introduce Warren would be great. With Tara defending him from the scoobies' inexplicable hostility.
In the meantime, poor Dru. Didn't see it coming? Ouch. Hey, is Oz still alive? I wonder.
Kennedy is coming along great.... might be a match for Buffy in a few years. For the Buffy of end of S3; but by then she'll have moved up in skill, too. Ouch.

Damn, you're actually making me start to like Kennedy. How Dare You!!! Seriously now, it's a great read and I'm really starting to look forward to the confrontation between the two slayers (or even better Jack & Notty).

Hadn't realized there was another story in the series until just now. I hope everything's okay, because you don't seem to have updated any of your stories in quite a while.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight—Cowboys & Indians, Part I" from MarcusSLazarus
I liked this story on its own, but after reading “Life’s Ending, Life’s Beginning”, I’m even more intrigued at the thought of how they’ll come together; excellent job, really.
Not only do you effectively use the originally-villainous Warren in a very effective manner as he struggles to be the good guy despite his own darker instincts, Andrew’s more childish enthusiasm for magic and Veruca’s greater interest in controlling her wolf-side now that she has people who are willing to show her another way come across very well, and even Anya’s getting some interesting development (She’s never struck me as the easiest person to write a POV for given her usual attitude), to say nothing of the potential you created in this last chapter for Drusilla to join the team.
Oh, and the bit with the FBI coming to ‘talk’ with Kennedy about her father’s mob connections should be interesting to see more of (Although a part of me has to wonder if the NID are going to get involved if/when Kennedy’s exposed as the Slayer), even if I’m more personally interested in seeing how Tara reacts to meeting the rest of the ‘Scrappies’ for the first time...
Add in the interesting implications of Kennedy apparently dreaming about Buffy’s activities at the Academy- as well as the ‘glimpses’ you’ve shown us of what Kennedy will be tackling in future in “Life’s Ending, Life’s Beginning”, such as her upcoming confrontation with the Gentlemen and her saving Walsh from ‘Adam’ as the most obvious examples-, and I am DEFINITELY hoping you update this next (Given how far you’ve come with “LE,LB”, it couldn’t hurt to give this one a chance to ‘catch up’, particularly since you win points for sheer originality in making the heroes being people who were ‘back-up’ at best and villains at worst in canon).
Keep up the great work!

As always you put out superb writing. I can't wait until LE,LB and KtVS cross. Kennedy's Scrappys reactions to the last Scooby just feels epic.

Held off reading this because Kennedy was never my favorite charecter, but the story is good and I like what you have done with the charecters. Hope you continue.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight—Cowboys & Indians, Part I" from scarlett
You are doing an amazing job with this story as well as with the other story with Buffy going into the Academy. I never really liked Kennedy, but you definitely make her likeable as a character. I'm enjoying both stories immensely and cant wait for updates on either if them! Cant wait until the 2 slayers finally meet :)
