Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from EllandrahSylver
Review:
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
Review:
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...

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from djhardim
Review:
It figures that Hank Summers is Cordy's father. Buffy has remarked in the past that Cordy is a lot like she used to be. It would seem the potential to be a Slayer came from his side of the family. It would be interesting to see if there were any other potentials in the extended Summers family.

I think you misunderstood on CLEP. All you do is take the examination. If you pass, you are awarded the hours. There is no further work associated with that particular course.
Comments from author:
Thanks for this - you'll just have to wait for the reveal.... As for the CLEP, I'm guessing she'd still want to hit the books pretty hard before the examination.

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from WhiteWolf
Review:
I put all my eggs in the 'Hank Summers' basket.

Can't wait for the next chapter to find out who Cordy's biological father is.

I the case that I'm right. Why did nobody of the military notice that both young women have fathers with the same name? Or are birth certifications not done in the background check? I'm sure there should be a mention of a biological father or at least an adoption of Mr. Chase.

And on that note good night and thanks for continuing.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. All (or a little) will be revealed soon. I just can't think why no one has gone for Principal Snyder as the father...

Review:
Evil! Who is it? It's Hank Summers isn't it? It has to be...the letter said his family, not him, live there, plus it would be sooo funny, her and Buffy being sisters! Write more soon!

Comments from author:
Don't worry, all will be revealed soon. What if it's Principal Snyder? Or the Mayor? Or Principal Flutie?

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from Scrappychic
Review:
Great Cliffhanger. I'm guessing that Cordy is Buffy's half sister from the wording of the letter. Cordy's mom says "his family" lives in Sunnydale, not "he" lives in Sunnydale...

My guess is Joyce will all but adopt her when she finds out. Yay!!!
Great Chapter.

Maybe, maybe not... The plot bunnies won't tell me.

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from harcroft
Review:
brilliant

and I wonder who the real father is. it can't be anyone from Stargate, since they would want to raise her (except perhaps Kinsey), but it could be pretty much anyone from BTVS ( I'm not sure Whig option would be the funniest, Cordy being half-sister to Buffy ( if that is the case, is Cordy the Key? might explain why she got some Slayer abilities...& would also explain how Cordy changed once Buffy turned up...), Willow ( however, you would need an explanation for why Cordy isn't redhead or blonde... could always be dyed, buy I doubt they allow you to use hair dye in the Army, at least during bootcamp.) or Xander (after all, Xander's family...)
Comments from author:
Not anyone from the SGC - all will be revealed soon. Or maybe not all...

Review of chapter "Slayer Lite" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Great cliff-hanger. Well, based on the set up and the reaction, she's either got be related to Buffy or Mayor Wilkens.
