Review of chapter "Life After..." from Cordyfan
Review:
Great see more of your epic appearing. This had just the right balance of humour and a bit of angst alongside.

Hopefully Draco will find happiness with Charlotte. She seems a good match for him. Harry might be searching for a long while, however.

Kendra finally seems to have turned into a real girl - shopping, bad jokes, etc. Buffy is a rather bad influence.
Comments from author:
Glad that it's working for you! I really have agonized over how to wind this up while keeping folks interested.

I think Charlotte is charging right into his heart and and taking up permanent residence... Poor Harry... I hope he'll find his peace, though it may not be what you're expecting.

Yup, I'm having fun with Kendra. No watcher to guard her and keep her from having a life. She's having a ball! Buffy's a 'bad' influence... exactly the right kind of bad influence!

Review of chapter "The Summer Ball" from Mcspender
Review:
I nominate this song for the ball xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rrsj_auEKs

And yeah, it`s gonna be an interesting ball for everyone, indeed.
So, a few little dhampirs are in the plans??. Coooool xD!!!.
By the way, when Fred talked about testing Gunn sperm count, the first time I read it the chapter the word tasted appeared there, but, then, my dirty mind once again was playing tricks on me, and I read the real word, tested, after I blinked ;).
Yeah, I have a dirty mind ;).
Cool chapter, see ya!!!.
Comments from author:
I'm not sure I want to know what you've been tasting, my dear! I also have a dirty mind, as I'm sure you're aware... but no, poor Charles and Fred were being very innocent... sigh. I have sympathy for you though, my dirty mind is *always* playin' tricks on me!

Not sure what will transpire when the half vamp kids show up... but I'm thinking that like Connor, they'll be mostly human. Of course, the powers of darkness may have something to say about my wonderful plans!! ;-)

Low rider? reeEEALLY? I had something a bit more classy in mind... I think... heheh... but this is why I love you. you're even stranger than I am!

Review of chapter "The Summer Ball" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
Hmmm, Sirius is back. That should help Harry a little, I think. I look forward to reading about that adventure.

Also, lots of babies. Babies are good, though I think if I were Spike I still would be hesitant. Time Enough For Love cured me of wanting to live forever...

Thanks for writing

Time Enough for love is a novel about a two thousand year old man written by Heinlein. Set two thousand or so years in the future. Many things I do not agree with, but some very plain and good truths.
Comments from author:
Not sure what 'time enough for love' is, but I don't want to live forever unless at least some of those I love will be there with me... much too lonesome a future to contemplate. And the baby thing? Not as smooth as you might think... after all, this is my story... I'm sweet, but not that sweet! ;-)

Sirius will definitely help Harry. I probably won't post the story of Sirius' return until I finish posting the rest of this... we'll see... I'm trying to be somewhat systematic for a change...

You're welcome.

Review of chapter "Life After..." from (Current Donor)SamuraiCatFan
Review:
Great to see an update (says the author who looks and sees that his own WIP is close to 2 years gone since the last update----yikes!)

Really like the look at post-battle aftermath. Interesting pick of looking at Draco and one of the Heartstone slayers first. Hopefully someone can get Harry out of his self-destructive moping that makes moping Angel look cheerful. Harry looks like he is heading down the Howard Hughes road of withdrawal and isolation.

ROFL about Kendra turning into a bigger clotheshorse than Buffy! Kendra seems to be adjusting very well to life after death/not quite death/limbo.
Comments from author:
I'm relieved that I can do an update. I went through a long period there where the writing thing was not cooperating. Hang in there, you're gonna be ok. (Just double checked and realized that I have 7, not 6 WIPs... I'm so behind, I'll never die, Sigh.)

So glad the post battle isn't boring. I worry sometimes that it's my inability to let go at the end of the 'glorious battle', but I've always thought that it was interesting to see what people fought for and how they survive. I figured that looking at the HeartStone slayers was only fair... I just brought a whole bunch of people into a world they no longer recognize... Don't worry about Harry. Don't worry about Harry!!

Yes, well, Kendra didn't get her teenage life out of her system, didn't get worn down by all the terrible things Buffy has seen... as you'll recall, she was kind of dressed up in her few appearances... and yes, I think she's enjoying life - a lot! :-) Can't you just see her on the motorway in her Jaguar?

Review of chapter "Life After..." from (Recent Donor)christytrekkie
Review:
Really enjoyed the little conversation between Draco & Blaise. Thought Draco knew about the heartstone slayers and that charlotte was one of them. hmmf that should be an interesting conversation.
Comments from author:
I think Draco has been living in a haze of grief. When the HeartStone was found, he wasn't with them. When the HeartStone slayers were called from the HeartStone, he was in the air on his broom. Glad you liked my Draco & Blaise discussion... Love it when men get to have awkward conversations about things men usually prefer not to talk about!! :-)

Thank you!

Nice to have around again =)!.

Comments from author:
Me thinks you're right! I think they're very cute!! I think both Draco and Charlotte are lucky!

Thank you my dear! It's fun to be able to post again. The writer's block seems to have broken loose... now, I just have to find time to write on my 6 incomplete stories. :-)

Review:
I've missed this story. Charlie seems to be doing alright. Now all we need is for someone to drag Harry out off his misery...

Thanks for writing
Comments from author:
I'm working on Harry... but it won't be at all what you expect! Very glad to give you more of it. There should be more chapters in the next few weeks...

You're welcome

Review of chapter "Being human..." from DarthTenebrus
Review:
The most beautiful thing I have ever seen superimposed over the LA skyline...a gold pentacle...as if the Goddess Herself had blessed Los Angeles with Her protection...

Agnostic here with NeoPagan leanings, why I said what I just said...it really is quite beautiful.

As for the five Elements...according to Wicca belief, they are Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit, not exactly sure where the Wood and Metal come from, intriguing to find out. Knowledge is my crack, after all....LOL

Lovely job so far with the story...too bad there's no sequel, would have been interesting.

And what gives with Angel? A week of being human again and one would think he would never tire of it...but he's hitting the bottle again and getting crossways with all his friends? Looks like Gunn's gonna have to take over as the VIC (Vamp In Charge)

Oh, side note here, started a new chap with my story "Balance of Powers", in my own series, and it had Dru, Patrick, and Cordyllyria (making with the condensy here, likey?), please give it a read? Hope I did right by you...
Comments from author:
Thank you... I'm so glad that touched you. Yes, I definitely felt that grace herself was touching the city. Thank you again. It means a lot coming from someone for whom these symbols have meaning.

As for the five elements... I deliberately clouded the issue... The wood and metal come from Chinese medicine... I wanted to connect ALL the various belief systems... because in my understanding... what speaks to me is that we are stronger as the sum of all of who and what we are than any of us is on their own...

I'm beginning to think I will have to write it all as a short sequel b/c every time I put pen to paper (or hands to keyboard) to come up with closing chapters, tendrils spread out in different directions... I have my original final chapter written, but so much has happened that has transcended it, that it seems too small... I'm gonna have to ponder on it. I really did want to be 'done' but the story seems to have more telling to happen, so we shall see. Rest assured that whatever happens, it's far from abandoned.

I just keep telling myself it's long enough all ready. don't you think it's long enough? {grin}

Thanks for your lovely reviews.

Review of chapter "In the Air" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
*tears*

The most hilarious chapter in this story so far! Cute puppets having a sexual free for all in the back seat of their vampire friend's car, Puppet Spike complaining and kicking uselessly, Puppet Buffy giggling for the sheer hilarity of it, Wes trying to brood and failing, and Dru trying not to crash and kill all the living passengers while she's keeping her undead sides from splitting in uncontrolled laughter...couldn't help myself...LMFAO!
Comments from author:
so very happy to make you laugh! Yes, this one was a great deal of fun to write and I had to go back and read it again after you reviewed it. I loved getting everyone's personality and then having the cop get his 'momma told me not to come' moment.

I do hope you'll continue to enjoy this as I work on trying to finish it. My problem is that I have so many side stories that are developing that I'm trying to figure out which to turn into separate stories and which to simply refer to in passing... Every time I put pen to paper I get more story instead of 'conclusion'. Sigh. And no, I have no plans to write a sequel. Nope, not happening. No way, no how.

Review of chapter "It’s been 143 years since my last confession" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
*tears*

THAT was a beautiful chapter; I suppose the only was Dru will find out for sure about her reaction to sunlight will be if she's tossed out into it and doesn't burn...then whoever's tried to kill her at that moment had BETTER watch their backs...

As for getting her rosary back after a century and a half and finding out she has family still, that's the best part. She'll be uncomfortable with revealing to them the nature of her existence, but the ones who accept will accept her without judgement as opposed to those who are too blinded by their faith...gonna be interesting when she finally meets Jack O'Neill and he has to call her Grandma Dru...LOL
Comments from author:
This may have been my favorite chapter to write... It certainly was close to my soul... and my heart. Yes, she's a fearsome opponent, but she still has vulnerabilities.

You'll have to tell me what you think of her encounter with Jack. All I'll say is I had fun with it!

I really do hope that you'll enjoy what is to come. She's going to make a lot of friends, a few enemies... and experience all sorts of cool stuff before this is all over... Here's hoping you'll enjoy it all.

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "So Far Away*" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
LMFAO! PHONE SEX between a vampire chick and an ex-priest! Well....gratuitous phone sex, but still!!! HOly SH---yeah, how weird and hilarious is THAT?! How did you make this thing stretch out for 90 chapters? And you're STILL not finished?! Jeez....

Loving it. Had a good laugh with this chap...
Comments from author:
Yes, well... they are a couple! You have no idea how nervous I was about posting this chapter! Yes, it is a bit odd how life takes you to strange places...

As for the 90 chapters... it will soon be over... Only a few more chapters to go... They just have to kill the monsters and save the world... and... well, that would be telling!!

Glad you enjoyed this!

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "War Council Pt II - Damage Control" from smolder
Review:
Hello again! *waves*

In fact, Faith had laughed. He knew she still trusted him, but she thought his move to Wolfram and Hart was, as she put it, “some crazy shit”. - Heh. Oh dear, I have serious love for Faith and her bluntness.

Bahhh. I almost felt like banging Angel in the head for suggesting Wesley call the Council so that Wesley would start to trust him again. Why would the Council trust Wesley anymore than they would Angel if they thought that he was part of WR&H? That just reads bad idea all over the place just because Angel doesn't want Spike to do it. *throws frying pan at Angel*

I really am unnecessarily frustrated at Angel. And largely because his stupid-headedness and making things utterly more complicated than necessary because he doesn't seem to understand how to navigate the people around him is completely in character. *snorts*

It's a bit of a cliff hanger for me, but that's all I have time to read right now Blue. I enjoyed the bits I read immensely. Night!
Comments from author:
Yes, I love my girl Faith. Someone has got to keep Angel from thinking too much and getting lost in that big maze of melancholy he calls a brain!

Yes, Angel can be dense. Of course, his intentions were good. He wanted to make Wesley know he was trusted... so he was doing the stupid thing for the right reasons... doesn't make it not stupid, however!

*Ducks* Glad the frying pan wasn't aimed at me! *Snort... giggle*

No, you're just the right amount of frustrated at Angel. For some reason, this version of Angel is thoroughly frustrating. I love that term 'stupid-headedness'. I may have to steal it... May I steal it? No, Angel has no clue about being a social animal. Or maybe it's just that as smart as he is, he just 'has no clue' about a lot of things to do with real life. If he can't hit it, bite it or stab it with his steely knives... he just doesn't know what to do with it!

Well, I'm sorry to lose you for the evening, but most of us do have to sleep! Look forward to hearing from you about the rest of it as you get to it.

Hugs.

Sleep well.
