Review of chapter "The Barbie in the Locomotive..." from RevDorothyL
Review:
Love this chapter so much, and was surprisingly moved by Angel's belated realization that he might've had other options than making such a deal with W&H, and that he'd had more than a little ambivalence about the idea of himself raising a son (or befriending even his supposed one true love's baby sister) long before Connor had been kidnapped and eventually mentally and emotionally manipulated into becoming a basket case endangering himself and so many others.

Meanwhile, Lindsey is reassuringly free from any such belated self-awareness or sense of guilt, so seeing Buffy and Spike teaming up against him was undiluted fun! :)
Comments from author:
So glad this spoke to you. I'm afraid a lot of people weren't so enthused with the focus on Angel and co. I just find it interesting to delve into the heads of my characters. Angel never really knew how to be a good person even before being turned. I think he'd have a hard time with someone like Dawn (even though those memories are fake, it seems as if the fake memories would be consistent with the person who has them, at least going by Joyce and Buffy). I don't know how I'd do with something like this if my child were the one holding my partner and a bunch of innocents hostage... I think most parents would be tempted to take a bad deal to save their child (and others).

Yes, Lindsey is always fun. He's so very free from any hang-ups like self-awareness or even basic humanity. he's not quite a sociopath, but he's not 'of the good' either. Glad you liked!!

Thanks,

Blue

Review of chapter "The Barbie in the Locomotive..." from Mcspender
Review:
Lindsey, Lindsey, that's what ya get for being one of the two most hateful thangs on this Earth: A Criminal Lawyer.
The number one being: an hedge fund manager from Wall Street. The Texan thang can't be helped, I mean there's a lot of cool people there after all xD.

And Dawn and the crew is enjoying the LA streets, ooh yeah. Come to the coast, have fun xD.

I hope Angel's goodbye gift to WR & H includes C4, I mean, if you gotta leave the premises, do it with a bang =D.

Cool chapter, see ya!!!.
Comments from author:
Well, I started a response to this last night, but it did not survive the browser crash, so here goes again...

Yes, Lindsey is a terrible sleaze, but he's a very amusing sleaze. Bad things always show up when he does. I have nothing against Texas... I happen to like Christian Kane a lot and he's actually from Texas.

Yes, the L.A. streets are fun... if you like demons in your mornings.

C4. Yes, that would definitely be a good thing. Blast the little bastards.

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "The Barbie in the Locomotive..." from (Recent Donor)DonSample
Review:
While Dawn had been fairly close to Spike during seasons five and six (I blame the monks) the bloom was off that rose by the start of season seven. Near as I can tell we only saw one scene where they interacted during the last season, and she threatened to set him on fire.
Comments from author:
Yes, but that was *before* he saved the world. And this is *Angel's* perception, filtered through his jealousy of Spike. I do think that Dawn would be worried about Spike if he got his hands chopped off... even if she was never 'close' to him again. Hell, you'd be sorry for a casual friend who got their hands chopped off... and if that person was someone you'd once cared about who had made the ultimate sacrifice to save a whole planet worth of people? I think it just might make you forgive them.

And as for her rage? You don't get as angry with people as she was when he came back if you don't care a great deal.

Anyway, that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Unshackled" from Harry
Review:
If Teal'c feels so strongly about Buffy, then perhaps, the next time that Master Bra'tac is on earth, it might be interesting to see the two of them meet up. I would love to see Teal'c mentor and Buffy meet up.

9/8/2014 You want a ticket for that event: I'm like a Ferengi where this event is concerned! Sell the tickets, set up the PPV rights, and make a nice PROFIT off the event! *PEANUTS, POPCORN, CRACKER JACKS! SODA POP, BEER, JACK DANIELS!*
Comments from author:
Thank you for the reminder. I very much look forward to the time that Bra'tac and Buffy can meet... and spar. I'd love tickets for that!

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten. Trust me on this!

Review of chapter "The Barbie in the Locomotive..." from Harry
Review:
Lindsey, you had best come clean. Buffy does not joke around when it comes to evil like you. She WILL feed you to Spike if you don't and she might do it even if you do! As for the rest of Angel's group, I see them leaving, but the Brood Master is going to stay. He feels that he will have no choice despite what happens. Wait till he finds out that the spells are off of Conner as well, and the kids wants to have a LITTLE CHAT with Daddy! Can you say knock down drag out? SURE YOU CAN!
Comments from author:
Oh Harry. You're gonna love the next few chapters. Knock down, drag out? Now you're talking. All kinds of big fights for everyone... We'll satisfy everyone's need for action... maybe a little too much.

Review of chapter "Bad Magic" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
Review:
good chappie. looking forward to more. Thanks for sharing it. Hmm sounds like Buffy is going to be busy cleaning up after the Wolfram and heart so she won't be able to help with whatever is going on at the mountain.
Comments from author:
Well, it's gonna be difficult helping at the mountain, fortunately, there's a slayer in Colorado Springs. Wolfram and Hart are not going down without a fight, I'm afraid.

Thanks,

Review of chapter "The breaking in the dreams" from Harry
Review:
When you get a slayer dream, that means you hit the panic button. Slayer dreams mean trouble, BIG trouble!
Comments from author:
Big trouble. And the Air Force Slayer responds. After all, this is Air Force business.

Review of chapter "I put a spell on you – 'cause you're mine" from Harry
Review:
Well, the Scooby Gang now know why Angel did what he did. To protect family, almost anyone would do what is needed to protect them. And that means making a deal with the Devil per se. Time to talk to some people and try and get more answers.
Comments from author:
Time to do dangerous things and run on home because the circular spinning device is about to have a lot of brown stuff all over it.

Review of chapter "New Wounds... old confusion." from Harry
Review:
People from W&H?*Snorts* Those idiots are hit first, ask questions later. And Angel got raked over the coals but good by Buffy. I think that Angel is going to have to do a lot of work to reestablish a good relationship with Buffy and the Council.
Comments from author:
I don't think a good relationship with Buffy is possible. Not sure about the council, but other than Faith, he's not gonna have too many friend there either.

Review of chapter "New Perspectives, Old Wounds" from Harry
Review:
To hear that B and F have healed some of their wounds enough that Faith wants Buffy to be head of the council shows the respect and friendship that has developed. Enough that when this situation in LA popped up, she called Buffy and got a team mobilized. Now, time to clear up this problem in LA and find the new slayer.
Comments from author:
Buffy and Faith have more in common than ever before. Surviving Sunnydale gave both of them a great deal of perspective. They're the chosen two. And of course, it's mutual... because Buffy wants Faith to do well as much as Faith wants Buffy to be in charge of the council...

Review of chapter "What you know is right..." from Harry
Review:
Now, more then EVER, I am glad that the First took out the old Council! To do that to a person, is DISGUSTING! If QT was still around, he would be on a large spit over a BBQ pit, SLOWLY being roasted! Or, give him to a group of demons to have sport with. Quentin Travers was a SPOILED IDIOT!
Comments from author:
Travers is one of the characters I hate the most on Buffy. I feel about him the same antipathy that I feel for Kinsey on Stargate. I think they're odious, officious, selfish little creeps. Being blown up was too good for him.

Review of chapter "The Warrior's Heart" from Harry
Review:
With what Buffy told Teal'c, it proves just how much she cares about her, and he, her. Do NOT try and come between these two. You do, YOU WILL PAY!
Comments from author:
Yes, it is true love and warrior love. Do not mess with these two. No matter who you are.

Review of chapter "Big Damn Heroes in Trouble" from Harry
Review:
Well, this new team reminds me of when B first came to Sunnydale. And the trouble: OH, does it remind me of Fluties days as the principal. Hopefully, with some help, they can get the kids out of trouble.
Comments from author:
Fortunately, though they have the 'mean students' they don't have Snyder as principal... they just have the honor code to get by. Fortunately, they also have the 'real' scoobies.
