Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from frankocsic
Review:
nice story. enjoyed reading it. xander's gone a long way since the first chapter. good for him. poor warrick though. a seer and a werewolf? gotta suck. i'm looking forward to reading season 2. good job.
Comments from author:
Thanks, I'm glad you've enjoyed reading.

I wouldn't feel to sorry for Warrick, somehow I think he'll be able to handle everything. *wink*

I'm not sure how long it will take me to get the first chapter of Season Two posted, but I have all ready started work on it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from bex
Review:
O I enjoyed that sniff my xanders all grown up! Are you going to leave it there? I'd like to see why giles is being an arse.
Comments from author:
No, the story doesn't end there, I'm working on the opening chapter of season two now. Though it isn't even close to being finished. Anyway, the thing with Giles is simple, but probably won't be explained in the story.
(I almost put an AN in there about this, but decided it wasn't necessary.)

I'm actually sad about having the Xander/Giles thing be this way, but it hit me while I was working on this bit that without the bonding they had during Buffy's Season Four I just couldn't see Xander and Giles being close at all. I've always suspected that the early Xander (pre-season four) thought much more of Giles than the pre-season four Giles thought of Xander, and so without the season four bonding I just can't see Giles and Xander being anything more to each other than simply two people who happen to know each other.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from kayron
Review:
Good for Xander! He's got his own life and friends, and he finally realizes that he doesn't need the Scoobies to help give him an identity.
Comments from author:
*grins* That was always where I was headed with Season One.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Beth
Review:
I love this one. Need to know more. Need to know how things go for them all. Please update as soon as you can?
Comments from author:
*smiles* I do have the rough draft of the next chapter finished, so in a couple days (after edits) it should be ready. However, for the next little bit I am under the threat of severe weather, so that may cause a slight delay.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from ManyNamedChibi
Review:
I really like how you've made Xander into his own person but still have kept him with cannon. You also give just enough information on whats going on in the cannons so that those of us who aren't up to date can follow along, but those who already know it don't get bored. That's a tough line to toe and I think you've done it admirably.
Comments from author:
*smiles* I'm glad you like that because that was always my intention here. That Xander for the most part would still be Xander, though with some changes, obviously. ;) But also that Buffy and Willow would still be Buffy and Willow even without Xander, though a dark part of myself did consider having Buffy's entire world fall apart without Xander, but in the end I decided that would keep for another fanfic.
(Also, my idea of having Buffy and Willow play tug-of-war with Warrick and Catherine for Xander - the idea is cute in my head, but would pull this fanfic off track.)

I'm also glad you like how I'm handling the few Buffy/Angel details, cause that was a little harder than I expected, especially since I had/have no intention of rewriting Whedon canon (at least not as it relates to Buffy Season Four/Five, though early on I did toy with having Dawn sent as either something else or to someone else), but I did want to make sure that it was clear that Buffy's Season Four was still pretty much playing out the same in this fic as it did in canon.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from spring
Review:
Prison is safer, I most definitely agree. It should be rather interesting how the next few chapters come together. More soon please of this wonderful fic.
Comments from author:
That was actually a Buffy line from season three, I think, but I felt it would also be something Warrick and/or Catherine would say/think, as well.

Hopefully, I'll get the next little bit finished soon and be ready to get into Season Two, because for some reason Season Two is trying to take over, but I need to finish off Season One first.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Starfata
Review:
Wow. So glad Warrick is alive, and hope everything turns out okay on the vegas front. Possibly the Sunnydale one too, come to think of it!
Comments from author:
I can safely say that overall Vegas will be fine. *grins*

As for Sunnydale, there are lots of things I could say, but as I realized when trying to respond to another reviewer anything I say about Sunnydale tends to give something away, so you'll just have to wait for the next chapter.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Elleria
Review:
Like the way you got out of killing Warrick off while still working in that storyline. Looking forward to the next bit, and seeing Warrick put those pieces together.
Comments from author:
That is one of the biggest reasons I chose to use CSI Season Eight rather than using CSI season one as a starting point, because I liked the idea of that being one of those moments. In one reality Warrick's choices lead to a bullet in another they lead somewhere else. Plus it frees up Warrick for more story time in Season Two.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from kayron
Review:
Whoa! Way to play a scene! When I watched that episode of CSI, I was so shocked that the undersherriff murdered Warwick. You totally saved his life! I can't wait to see how the Scoobies react when Xander comes back with a few members of his own team to help save the day. They'll probably want him to stay, but (as Warrick will remind him) Vegas is his territory now. Thanks for the update.
Comments from author:
*grins* I'm glad you liked that, I admit there was a part of me that wondered if changing that scene would work well, so I'm glad so many people liked it.

As for Xander and Sunnydale... Well, any way I respond to that tends to give things away, so you'll just have to wait for the coming chapter(s).

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from calikocat
Review:
Yay! Warrick's still alive! ^^

Eagerly awaiting Xander's return to SunnyHell.
Comments from author:
*grins* As I told other reviewers, I knew from the moment this fanfic started Warrick was going to dodge that bullet, though this is the Sunnyhell universe so who knows what else might happen... *evil grin*

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Tabee
Review:
ok, so this is the first time I've read the story and I liked it! I wasn't sure I would, that's why I avoided it.

I like how you've meshed together BtVS and CSI, it's not forced like some stories are and doesn't try to include all the characters at once time like I have seen. Those stories just give me a headache and make me confused.

I haven't watched CSI since the episode where we found out Gil and Sara were sleeping together because that pissed me off and I didn't think (and still don't think) that Gil would have risked his or Sara's career to sleep with an employee. Now, if it had been Nick or Greg, at least then I would have been more willing to go with it ;)

Anyway, I like Harry's characterization, and I rather look forward to his meeting Willow. Esp. since technically he is probably the more powerful of the two, he's just limited in what magic he can use.

So, keep going, cuz this is awesomeness :D

Happy writing! Update soon!

Tabee :)
Comments from author:
Well, I'm glad that you decided to give the fanfic a try, and I'm certainly glad you enjoyed it. As for not trying to include all the CSIs all at once - A, it would, as you noted, get messy, and B, there are several members of CSI that I'm not sure I could write all that well, so bringing them in one or two at a time works better, though admittedly not every CSI will show up in this fanfic, but I'm thinking at least a few (four, maybe, though two of those aren't actually CSIs) CSI characters will enter the story or at least have a cameo at some point.

I'm glad you like Harry, because I was afraid his non-canonness would turn more than a few people off. However, you may be a bit disappointed in one aspect, because there really won't be much interaction between Harry and Willow, because of Harry's past and his first impression of Willow (despite the fact that she was finally cleared of all charges) he just won't be that eager to interact with her, and Willow will have a few issues of her own.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, hopefully I will have the next chapter ready to go soon(ish).

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Obsidian
Review:
Good chapter. I like how you DIDN'T kill Warrack. Cause with the knowledge he has of the nightlife... wouldn't make sense. THanks for that.
Look forward to more.
Comments from author:
*big smile* I'm glad you liked that.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, and hopefully I will have the next chapter ready to go soon(ish).

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from ladyfiana
Review:
That was wonderful! I thought it was great that Catherine made Xander realize that about himself without even knowing it.

I'm so glad you had Warrick live, though the visions are going to make him feel like his brain is leaking out of his ears. The friendship Warrick feels with Xander was wrote beautifully.

I really hope you write more soon.
Comments from author:
That is one of the things I love about Catherine, she always seems to know what to say, and I've always kinda thought Xander needed someone like that in his life.

Re: Warrick. As I told another reviewer I knew from the moment I started this fanfic that Warrick was going to dodge that perticular bullet. I'm glad you like the way I handled the Xander/Warrick friendship stuff, it was a bit hard to get it just right without making it sound like a gay thing.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, and hopefully I will have the next chapter ready soon(ish).

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from lothlorien
Review:
nice chapter. i like the mysterious factor. you should continue soon.
Comments from author:
Thanks for reading and reviewing. I am working on the now last chapter, though by the time all is said and done that "last" chapter may end up being broken down into two chapters, but hopefully it won't take me forever to update since the barebones of the next chapter is all ready written, it simply needs filling in.
