Review of chapter "2" from MemoryKing
Pretty good set-up.

Liked Buffy's insight about calling the Slayers.

Thanks for writing!
Comments from author:
Yep, her hypocrisy in Calling all the Potentials after bitching about her own Calling for years was just one of the many things I found wrong with Season Sux Part Deux.

Thanks for reviewing and commenting.

Review of chapter "2" from RedHeadReader
Two questions. One, are you gonna write more? I hope you do, becuase while your characters are soo ooc (and slightly dark), they also rock. Though what about Remus? He dropped off the face of the story after the Potters gave him Greyback. Question two, is there going to be a Smallville xover thrown in, since in chapter one, Buffy thinks of a Grandmother Sullivan ("sort of like those History Channel documentaries Grandmom Sullivan liked to watch"), which could tie her to Chloe Sullivan of Smallville.
Nice work
Comments from author:
First answer is yes, I'm definitely continuing this story.

And Remus isn't going to appear in the next couple stories because they're going to focus on the Scoobies and their reaction to what's happened. He'll show up sometime after that, since he is a part of Harry and Hermione's family, when I address what they're doing with regard to their long-term plans. ;-)

And your second answer is that I'm not completely sure at this point, although it is an intriguing idea. ;-)

Thanks for reviewing and commenting.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
A question about Buffy's ability to do magic. Since Buffy's ability to do magic seems to be related to her Slayer aspect, would she loose her ability to do magic if she "died" again?
Comments from author:
That's an excellent question, and one I'd have to think about a good deal before answering.

Thanks for the input.

Review of chapter "2" from Cateagle
Well, the memories she received from the alternate Hermione are clearly helping her. It's going to be interesting to see what happens if/when she and her friends ever manage to get together with Hermione & Harry. *That* should be quite a get together and one that would promise inordinate trouble and pain for the 'bad guys" (tm).
Comments from author:
The Scoobies are not going to be meeting Harry and Hermione for quite a while yet, since they're going to be taking care of several potential future problems themselves, in a manner similar to the way Harry and Hermione have done. ;-)

I will say that the eventual meeting is going to be quite memorable. ;-)

Review of chapter "2" from AngelBlack
This is a great beginning so far, though I'd definetely like to see it from Hermione's side too.
Comments from author:
Well, you can see Hermione's and Harry's view of the redo in my story "Justice, No, Just Us," which is linked to it.

If you're talking about Hermione's view of the changes Buffy's making in her own life, thentahat story is a bit down the road yet.

Review of chapter "2" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Buffy got a lot more than just memories with that wish, I'd say her IQ jumped up about a hundred points.

Edit: I'd thought that sharing the memories of Hermione Granger would have more of an effect.
Comments from author:
This Buffy IQ didn't so much increase as it is that she's making full use of the brains she possesses, rather than act as a bit of fluff. One of the episodes in season two or three noted that she scored a 620 in her English SAT, which would indicate she's not a dummy, just somewhat lazy.

Review of chapter "2" from LordCorwin
damn good update .... and I would have to agree with the last poster .... Buffy's IQ certainly has gone UP. Maybe not Willow UP .. but definately up there... :P
Comments from author:
Glad you're enjoying this version of Buffy as opposed to canon.

Review of chapter "2" from ChiVayne
I liked the scene between Buffy and Angel, she handled it very well. This is not the same Buffy that would (Or did, time travel is so confusing) fall in love with Angel. Still, she was able to show understanding that Angel and Angelus are not the same being, and with luck set him on the road to doing something positive.
I will be looking forward to your future work.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Glad you're enjoying the story.

And yes, this Buffy is substantially different than the one Joss showed us.

Review of chapter "2" from VillageOrchid
An interesting idea of "what I did on my summer vacation." So I'm guessing she waits a few months (weeks?) and then writes to Giles to get him to "quit" the watchers and come to the town. And of course she has some time to figure out how to deal with the Mayor before he gets invulnerable. Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
No, Buffy will not be contacting Giles in the next few weeks, since he is quite understandably loyal to the Council at this point in time.

Don't worry, her long-range plans do include him, but other things need to take place first before she (and hopefully, the Scoobies, too) can get in touch with him.

Review of chapter "2" from WolfWriter
This was pretty good! I liked the first story that you did with Hermione, and was waiting for one focusing on Buffy.

Too bad it's only two chapters, I'd like to see what Buffy would do in Sunnydale whilst she's off the Council's radar.
Comments from author:
I'm working on the next story at the moment. I'm going to be posting them as a series of episodic stories, since that way I think I can get them out a bit faster and in a more coherent form.

Review of chapter "2" from Void
I really like this story. The only people certain to be included in Buffy's plan so far are Willow and Xander. Even if, for some reason, Giles shows up in Sunnydale as some of the other reviewers have suggested I don't see him as being more loyal to Buffy than the Council at this point in time.

The only thing that I thought was off-key was that even with all her planning Buffy doesn't seem to think of her mother, even in a "I have to leave her behind to keep the Council thinking I'm dead." manner. With all her future memories I can see her writing off her father as the waste of space he is but she was close to her mom before her mom kicked it. I guess we can only hope that Joyce still moves to Sunnydale after the divorce even though her daughter is apparently dead or missing.
Comments from author:
As you've noted, the only people Buffy is currently focused on including in her future plans are Xander and Willow, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't have contingency plans for recruiting other people. ;-)

As far Joyce and her health are concerned, the problem with the aneurysm didn't occur until approximately six years in the future, so there is plenty of time to address that issue. As far as getting her mother to move to Sunnydale, Buffy needs to make sure that her immediate plans concerning Xander and Willow works out properly before she needs to get involved in that mess.

Review of chapter "2" from Martin
You keep saying she is going to move to Sunnydale, but you haven't actually had her mother divorced or looking at Sunnydale yet. That seems to me the most difficult thing.
Comments from author:
There are many ways that Buffy can move to Sunnydale and only a few of them involve having her parents accompany her. You'll see more about this a few stories down the line.
