Review of chapter "Chapter One" from LostSpartan
Why do you do this to us poor defenceless readers? You create a brilliant storyline, weave a hypnotic pattern out of words and draw us in to your world (well, for the purposes of fanfiction, anyway) - and then you leave us wondering "where do we go from here?"

I can already see so many paths branching away (if Buffy is able to cast spells, will Willow take it up too, or will she find another way to help... will Giles get a look in, or will Merrick stay her Watcher (and will Merrick be the same type of Watcher Giles was)... will Buffy even GET to Sunnydale, given that the destruction in Hemery High and her semi-'outing' as the Slayer was the reason for her parents' split and her moving)... and I'm sure you can see paths I haven't mentioned!

I am definitely looking forward to the journey - and hoping the bumps aren't TOO rough!

First off, I screwed up and had this marked as complete when it's not. There will be another chapter to this story, showing more of Buffy's adaptation to, and preparations for, her new life.

As far as your questions are concerned, I have a fairly detailed outline of what's going to be happening and how she intends to handle things, and you'll be getting a glimpse of it in the next chapter.

Thanks for reviewing and commenting.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Darksnider
Alright looking forward to more of this story, really glad Buffy is showing that she has a brain really adds to the whole appeal and I can't wait to see what happens in sunnydale when she gets there.

Thanks for reviewing, and I screwed up and had this marked as complete when it's not, so there will be another chapter to this story before Buffy heads to Sunnydale.

This Buffy has had her eyes opened by the memories she's received, and she's been forced to mature far more quickly than her alternate incarnation did, which explains her thinking about things in her life in such detail.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
I likr your version of Buffy. The one question I have is whether Buffy would have been attracted to Angel if she hadn't drowned (Willow didn't help matters much). I get the feeling that the Slayer Spirit served to keep the demon within the Slayer in check. Without that she was automatically drawn to darkness.

It will be interesting to see how Buffy gets her mother to move to Sunnydale.

Am I correct in assuming that it was Spike who was responsible for Buffy's STD?

Glad you enjoyed the story.

As far as you're question about Angel, I agree in general with your view of the Slayer Spirit, but I also see the part of Buffy who yearned for a normal life viewing Angel as the stereotypical 'tall, dark and handsome stranger' most teenage girls lust about and her finding out that he was already involved in the darker side of the supernatural life making him an ideal candidate for boyfriend.

You are correct about Spike being the one who infected Buffy with the STD, since I don't see him worrying about something like that, what with him being dead.
