Review of chapter "Wrong Turn" from Althalus
Great start. I hope you'll explain why the ring chose Xander and not fly back to it's own sector. I would also like to know how he got to be such a good Lantarn at the first try.
Other than that it's a great story. BTW are you going to have Faith cured before rhe got out of her coma in canon?

Review of chapter "Wrong Turn" from QundraDraconum
might have been proposed before, but black lantern Jesse?
Comments from author:
Doesn't there need to be a body in order for a Black Lantern ring to allow someone to rise?

Review of chapter "Wrong Turn" from Dragonhulk
First for the good. You seem to have a very concise way of describing the constructs. That's good because the powers of the Green Lantern are very visual biased, and difficult to write. You have shown in this first chapter that you know how to over come this.

Now for the bad. At some point in the story you need to show or explain why Xander is such a good Green Lantern right off the bat. As a Xander fan myself I know exactly what he's done to this point and as a GL fan I know what it takes to be one, and to me the two don't completely reconcile. I also hope that not everyone in the GLC will be as accepting of Xander, if only because a good story is built around personalities conflicting just as much as physical conflict.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the fic, just saying that there are some things that need to be addressed before I give it my full praise as the excellent story this has a chance of becoming. You're already getting there fast using my favorite Buffy character and my favorite DC comic titles, but then again using them may just make me hope for more than what you want to give.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you like it and the constructs are difficult to write. I tried to put myself within Xander as what he would use for constucts which a few popped out as obvious. That was why the first construct he made was an M-16 (thanks to Soldier Guy) and his third construct was a pack of hyenas (I don't think I need to explain that one).

I'm glad you pointed out what I'll need to improve upon. I will eventually explain why Xander is a good GL. Not everyone in the Corps will be as accepting of Xander as it may seem.

Review of chapter "Wrong Turn" from XanderHalcyon
I always kind of imagined Xander as a combination of Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Raynor but without the powers. He fought for more than 7 years against terrible foes with no powers. I can only imagine that Xander the green lantern would be a great help to the universe. I can see him eventually being offered a blue lantern ring because of his capacity for love but also a red lantern ring for his anger. I hope you update soon and I cannot wait to see what happens. I love Xander and Green Lantern so great job.
Comments from author:
I see what you mean. He has Hal's fearlessness, John's resolve, Guy's smart-mouth, and Kyle's luck with women. You've got your colors wrong though. The Blue Lanterns represent hope which seems more of a Tara thing and the Star Sapphires represent love.

Review of chapter "Wrong Turn" from Bobboky
sweet, a man with not only an unbreakable will but one whose will is capable of healing and strengthening the wills of others. His weakness will not be fear but love probably. He never had much luck in that arena to this point and he has pretty much mastered his terror and fear, feels them, masters them, and moves past and ignores them....
Comments from author:
I know but his Green Lantern training will have a side effect. He won't be effected by the memory spell that inserts Dawn.

Although, love does give me an idea.

Review of chapter "Wrong Turn" from kayron
I like the idea of Xander being given the opportunity to leave SunnyDale and make a better future for himself. Xander did a lot of good helping in the fight against evil demons. However, his life was a mess. He worked several different dead end jobs. He lived and paid rent in his parent's basement. The girls were having their college experience, and managed to belittle Xander from time to time. They made, intentianally of unintentionally, Xander feel like he was less than them and going nowhere from their comments to him, and the way that they treated him like the errand boy. Now he has a chance to get away and see the world and universe. He can decide what to make of his life, instead of making do. looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
The next chapter will be a time skip by one year to cover his training and he will be returning to Sunnydale. Could you imagine what some of the evil people from there could do with a yellow ring? I agree with you. They claim to be his friends but make him feel lousy because they're doing better than him.
