Review of chapter "Sisters" from cmdruhura
Actually, in canon, both Buffy and Cordelia had birthdays in January. The Angel episode that featured Cordelia's birthday was originally aired on January 14. Episodes of Buffy's birthday were always shown around January 19th, plus she once told Riley she was Capricorn on the Cusp of Aquarius.

Though I give you cudos for making Buffy older than Cordy, five months seems a bit extreme for a difference.

Review of chapter "Sisters" from NeverTooOld
Gotta admit I didn't see this coming, although I probably should have. I mean it explains so much about Cordy's being a Potential-Plus or Slayer-Lite, and how her powers have increased because of the time spent working with Buffy.
I liked how you gave Cordy the Silver Star and the Scoobies equivilent civilian awards and then justified getting them some money as 'special consultants'. Yeah, really, really special.
In the long term I can see Cordy working for SGC, but I can also see her working as a Presidential Special Assistant, looking for and dealing with vamp and demon outbreaks within the USA, that Buffy is too busy on the hellmouth to deal with.
Looking forward to the next update.

Thanks for the review. I'm still playing with the Slayer Lite concept - haven;t decided yet how (or if) it fits the shared parent thing. Thanks also for the ideas.

Review of chapter "Sisters" from GraysonPaladin
Great chapter, so much for making us think that Cordy was related the other Sunnydale denizens. You were about a subtle as a sledgehammer wielded by a Jaffa. Still great job, so Vampires in DC, of course I wouldn't tell Abby. Keep up the great job ~GraysonPaladin
Comments from author:
"As subtle as a sledgehammer wielded by a Jaffa" - I guess that about sums up my approach (hope you don;t mind if I use the line at some point, as I really think it fits quite a lot of people in the Buffy and SG universes). The main problem is going to be keeping Abby out of the loop... Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Sisters" from VillageOrchid
I enjoyed the character dynamics and the plot twists of this chapter. Thanks for continuing.
Comments from author:
Thanks for this. Hope I didn't go overboard on the emotional content. There was very little humour in this chapter, but it just didn't sem to fit the topic.

Review of chapter "Sisters" from DHX
okay you officially jumped the shark. with this awfully convenient Buffy and Cordelia are sisters thing
Comments from author:
Sorry you don't like the coincidence. I wasn't sure whether to go down the "related to" route at all - it often does seem very contrived - but this was one which hadn't (to the best of my knowledge) been done before and I eventually couldn't resist it. I'll do my best to get things back on track - thanks for the comment.

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from FireWolfe
Oh man cliffies are evil. Well done by the way. So who is the daddy?

Comments from author:
That would be telling! Next chapter ought to be out tomorrow. One or two clues - it isn't Giles or Jack O'Neill....

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from nemogbr

Thanks for the reply. Reasons for Xanders popularity, He was the only underpowered one out of the Scoobies.

As for the soldier and hyena. I regarded them as skills lying underneath; akin to muscle memory. You might be out of practice, but can get up to speed faster than a complete novice.

Most likely not probable in this story, but I like Cordelia/Xander stories..:)

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from nemogbr
Good Chapter.

Hank Summers as the sperm donor?

Looking forward to more and is Dawn in Sunnydale?

Will Xander also end up with the SGC. Hyena Primal Spirit and Soldier template after all.
Comments from author:
No Xander in the SGC, I'm afraid. And remember, by Season 4, he admitted that the soldier template had all but disappeared, while the Hyena Primal Spirit just seems to be something some fanfic writers have latched onto.

As for the rest? Hopefully all (or a little) will be revealed soon.

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from CPTSkip
Oh evil cliffy! So many possibilities for Daddy Dearest, I hope you update quickly as I really want to know who he is. My reaction to Cordy's broom stick simile was much like Buffy's. “Eeeuuuhhhh!” Buffy grimaced at that imagery. Lol! The wording for Cordy's citation was very close to "official". Well done. The possibility of the Scoobies getting a monetary reward is also true to life. I was once on a team of four military and three civilians. We four got to go to a nasty place over the Christmas holiday and the civilians never left the DC area. They each got $3000 awards. We four military personnel got medals. So I can honestly say I've got a $3000 medal. Too bad it isn't really platinum. Lol! Boy, if you look up "bitch" in the dictionary you see a picture of Cordy's mom. I look forward to more and finding out who Cordy's daddy really is.

I'll try to oblige with an update, but the evil cliffy is not my fault. Bad, bad plot bunnies...

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from EllandrahSylver
Hmmm... well, the clues you gave in the letter itself would seem to lead toward Hank Summers. More than Cordelia's reaction to the name, or the statement that his family now lives in Sunnydale, the fact that he was a married man when her mother had her 'indiscretion', and that he had no interest in raising Cordelia are all fairly good indicators. However, the same could be said of Ira Rosenberg and Anthony Harris, and 'business contact' can mean any number of things.

Of course, if this were still more of the work of Vengeance Demons, I'd say that this one may well be granting an unspoken wish of Cordelia, herself. After all, her parents basically abandoned her the minute she graduated high school, if not well before, who's to say that she never, when she thought she was alone, wished she had been born someone other than Cordelia Chase?

This letter would make that kind of wish true, in the most literal sense, without ever changing or modifying her current circumstances except to make something more interesting, such as giving her a heretofore unknown father to get to know. I can imagine Halfrek having that kind of subtlety, especially if Cordelia's father turned out to be someone whose other family ties would cause her grief, as it were.

Personally, though, I think the irony of Cordelia's mother having a fling with the man who eventually became the town drunk would just be priceless. And I can just see Cordelia and Xander sharing a "Oh my God am I glad we never had sex!" moment.

Thanks for this. I can tell you it isn't the work of Vengeance Demons this time.

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from PATM
Very cool very strong first chapter. The thought that Cordy has a huge scar on her torso doesn't bear thinking
about and it's strange that she hasn't given it one single thought. Yes, she is profoundly evolved since her
transformation by a wish and her own choices in life that have paid off in awesome ways, just a little consideration
for her inner and outer vanity would be appropriate. Why am I focusing on this? There is not a frakking thing wrong
with these stories and this is what I'm left with. Sorry about that. I almost forgot, Giles is the father. Or Wilkens.
Or Mr Flutie.
Comments from author:
Thanks for this. I'll bring in the scar - her vanity hasn't disappeared totally. And you forgot about Snyder...
