Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
*whistles* Ouch. Those guys must have gotten the drop on Buffy to have been able to do that to her, otherwise she'd have sent the lot of them to the ICU. I can imagine Giles would need some kind of physical link to the persons responsible in order to find them, but I have a feeling he'd have no trouble whatsoever obtaining said physical link by means magical or mundane. A few decades in a Hell dimension would suit nicely as punishment for them, that way Giles wouldn't have to lie when he said that he didn't kill them and didn't harm them.

Hell would be very convenient, wouldn't it?

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from FireWolfe
Review:
Dark but interesting. I would love a sequel. I mean Buffy needs to get even and I so agree Giles will go balistic.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the review :)

If the muse heads in the sequel direction there are plenty of loose ends that need to be tied up.

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
This makes extraordinarily little sense - exactly how did even a *group* of normal humans do this to *Buffy* of all people without all of them ending up dead or at least out of any possible fight in under 10 seconds flat?

Not buying it - AT ALL.
Comments from author:
In season 2, episode 12 “Bad Eggs” Cordelia, a human, takes Buffy down and out with a crowbar to the face. If a teenage Cordelia could take out a Slayer with one blow with a heavy object then I’m not seeing how you find it so difficult to grasp the concept of a group of men overpowering her if they caught her by surprise. Also it’s been shown that chloroform works on a Slayer just as well as it works on a human.

The actual scene of the rape wasn’t shown or discussed in detail because I felt no need to glorify the act. The focus of this fic was the repercussions of what happened and while I agree that Buffy, or any Slayer for that matter, would be difficult to take on or down. I do not believe they are infallible.

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from Greywizard
Review:
Disturbing, but nonetheless well-done.

And I would LOVE to see a follow-up describing John finding whatever might remains after Ripper locates the perps who hurt his daughter.

This is assuming, of course, that he leaves anything that could even be identified as human.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the response. I'm glad that besides the subject matter you found the story enjoyable.

Yes, I'd imagine Ripper would only leave bits, tiny bits, behind.

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
This is a birthday ficlet? You are one twisted individual!! (smirk)

That aside, can I say OMG?!? For being so disturbing, I LOVED it! All I can add is PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE write a sequel to this! Course I don't know who I'd root for to find the guys first. Suppose it'd have to be the police so Munch doesn't have to go after his old friend. I would also be nice to see if/how Buffy recovered from this...emotionally speaking of course.

Again, please write a sequel. With lots of chocolate chips on top! (Unless you're allergic, then whatever topping is your favorite.)
Comments from author:
*nods* I am not normal when it comes to fiction. Haha. I knew Lisa would appreciate something a little on the darker side, and I was thankfully right.

Thank you very much for the review. I greatly appreciate it.

In regards to the sequel, I originally wrote this as a one shot. Though due to the wonderful response this little ficlet has gotten, I won't dismiss the idea of a sequel.

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from immortalwizardelffan
Review:
*snorts* I think Giles... sorry, Ripper, is going to be finding the bastards first.
Comments from author:
*evil grin* Those bastards don't even know what's coming for them.

Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from (Moderator)Ava
Review:
“Let’s hope you find them before Giles does."

I'm kinda hoping you do a continuation and Giles does get there before or at the same time as Munch. Though I can easily see Munch and Giles hanging out during their younger, wilder days and now I'm all sorts of curious as to how those two met.
Comments from author:
:) I did toss out a lot of little bits out there, didn't I? *evil grin*

Giles would have such a lovely time with those guys if he got his hands on them first. I'm sure Munch would be tempted to drag his feet with the investigation to give Giles more time.

Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from JasonBarnett
Review:
how did men rape Buffy? I believe it would be physically impossible.
Comments from author:
I'm not sure how you think it would be physically impossible for Buffy to be raped. I certainly don't think that her being a Slayer means she has a magical chastity belt that would prohibit bad things from happening to her.

Underneath the Slayer she is just a girl, a human girl.

I’m sure your views differ greatly from my thought processes, I garnered as much from your review, but I’m not up for a debate at this time. So we’ll have to agree to disagree.

Review of chapter "The Hands of Men" from (Past Donor)exiled
Review:
Good story. I liked Munch's emotion and reaction to Buffy. I hope you continue it however it stops at a good place if you don't.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! I'm quite honestly flabbergasted over the reaction to this little ficlet! :)
