Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Past Donor)ScottWanderer
Review:
You are now officially one of my heroes. I love this series. That you finally were inspired and able to update it just made my year.

This story does have a tremendous amount of potential.I could see Buffy using a lot of future knowledge to her advantage. Everything from researching way for the primal possession to be under Xander's control togetting Faith identified early and moved to Sunnydale under her mother's care. She's already voided the possibility of Angelus and by extension Acathla. Halloween could be used for her to grant the Scoobies a leg up. Dressing Willow as her older self just prior to casting the Empowerment spell and Xander as himself from same period would give her two friends an amazing skill set. Her options only increase if Hermione and Harry show up. Though I would like to see Buffy and crew fail to save somebody despite their best efforts.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I'm trying to update all, or at least most, of my older stories.

I've got this story outlined for the next year (minimum) with regard to canon developments, and all I'll say right now is that canon has gone the way of the dodo. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from djhardim
Review:
Good update, thanks. Are you planning on an appearance by Catherine Madison in the next chapter. It would be interesting to see how she would react to what happened.
Comments from author:
All I can say at the moment, is that Buffy and company are going to be addressing *all* of the problems they encountered in the future Buffy saw, and they're not going to let anyone screw them over in any way, whatsoever.

There are several ways they can deal with Catherine Madison, when it becomes necessary, and those methods range from minor intervention to complete annihilation.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Wolfkin
Review:
Happy Day!! ^_^ You updated this one! ^_^

Well worth the wait, though I really wanna read the talk between Buffy, Willow and Xander now that they mostly believe Buffy. Is Buffy gonna explain it to Jesse or Amy as well? Oh, and how much trouble is Buffy gonna be in for "stealing" her dad's car for this little day trip? Hope you come back to this one again soon.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the chapter.

As far as who's going to be involved in the upcoming briefing, I have to say that you'll just have to wait for the next chapter to learn that. I will say that *everything* is up in the air as far as possible changes are concerned, and that *this* 'verse is not going to resemble the Joss-verse very much at all.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ElDani
Review:
Hey Greywizard, I just read this whole series in one go after I found it on your profile page. Thanks for writing, I loved this darker what-if exploration of both the Harry Potter and Buffy fandoms :)
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the story. ;-)

Working on the next chapter, so it should show up soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
An interesting set of stories, if fairly dark in the beginning. Will there more chapters?

Thanks for writing.
Comments from author:
Yes, there will be more to this series. Just have to get my muse focused back on these stories.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Rune
Review:
This should be part 3 in a four part series.

The first part dealt with Harry Potter, good job by the way.

The second part introduced Buffy in LA and was well done.

This, the third part starts with Buffy in SunnyHell and could be complete in just one or two more chapters.

The fourth and final part would be the crown jewel telling the tale of Buffy, Xander, Willow, Harry, and Hermione together in Sunnydale.

Please, please, update soon. Thanks. :)
Comments from author:
Well, this particular story only has one or two more chapters, depending upon my muse's whims.

The rest of the series, however, has several more arcs to be covered, and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy all of them, if I can my muse focused back on this one.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Rune
Review:
Really good so far, now all you have to do is bring in Harry and Hermione. Then the Scoobys will have 5 starting members and the Powers will be powerless to stop them.
Comments from author:
That's another interesting idea, but I've already got most of the story plotted out, and that's not going to be happening any time soon.

There are a lot of very non-canonical events coming up for the Scoobies before they meet Harry and Hermione. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Ancalador
Review:
I really enjoyed this series so far, and hope that you plan on continuing it. Maybe with a way to trigger Kendra and Faith, four Slayers and and The-Boy-Who-Won would make a pretty awesome team.

Keep up the good work
Comments from author:
I've got part of the next chapter for this written, so my only problem now is getting it finished.

Real Life is being somewhat uncooperative at the moment, and my muse's focus is on some of my other work, but I'm hoping to get it done fairly soon.

Thanks for reviewing and letting me know you like it. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Fyrecat
Review:
I just re-read the entire "series" and am definitely enjoying it. I love all the potential for an entirely new future that Buffy is already creating.

There are so many questions hanging, How will she get herself expelled from Hemery in order to move to Sunnydale now that she has effectively gotten away with her little foray into arson scott free? Will Giles even show up now that the council thinks she's dead? Will Faith get called? (She's my favorite) If so, how will Buffy treat her this time around? What about Cordy? Will Willow fall for Oz again, Tara? Can they prevent Joyce's death? Will Buffy wring a monthly paycheck out of the council? Will she hunt down Caleb before he can host The First? How will Willow's magical talents grow now that she will presumably have access to wands and books about magic? How will Buffy's magic develop and how will she use it? Will Jesse still become a vamp? Will X still have to "kill" him? That was a serious watershed moment for Xan's personality, If not, will Xander be galvanized into action like in the original timeline? Can Buffy bring herself to kill Glory's male alter ego in order to prevent all the bad Glory will do if she doesn't? Will Buffy prevent the Hyena incident from happening?

What advice will she provide for her friends about Halloween consumes? A pair of glasses purchased from Ethan Rayne's shop paired with an old Superman T-shirt would do wonders for Xan's Evil fighting ability! Or maybe a bodysuit, some silver paint and a surfboard? Even some yellow spandex and a cigar. Or how about a bald "wig" and a wheelchair? - which suggests a great costume for the redhead too! (Of course, Willow/ Phoenix is just a scary thought!) Then again, it would be amusing if X dressed up as "Just a guy on vacation."

And was that the WORST possible way for Buffy to introduce herself to the gang or what? "Hi, I'm a hot, but probably psycho stalker-chick, wanna be friends?"
Wouldn't it have been easier, and more organic, to just allow their introductions to happen in nearly the same way as in the original timeline again? You know, smile at the clumsy sk8r boi, and make friends with the smart girl so you can do homework together?

Now that Buffy has decided to make X her own, what will happen to all the other girls he was supposed to get involved with? Will he have to experiment with the effects of Pepper Up potion on muggles in order to keep up with 2 slayers? (Uber Hotness!) Hey, maybe he could dress up a Ranma 1/2 for Halloween and they could have a X/B/F/W/T multi-ship!

And for all those who don't like the X-man, Tough. Xander is "The bomb" as they say.

I am also interested to see what will happen in Wizarding England now that a decidedly dark Harry and Hermoine have nearly eliminated the entire magical pureblood population. There's a whole story arc there. Will they continue to monitor it so that a better culture rises from the ruins, or will it slide into semi-feudal barbarism? Will they set up a muggle-born scholarship foundation to send all of the UK's new young wizards and witches to the US or elsewhere for schooling?

And finally, and most importantly, It has been almost a year since you posted this chapter. Have you abandoned this story? I sure hope not because I have enjoyed it so far.
Comments from author:
First off, thanks for the wide-ranging and extensive review.

As far as your questions go, all I can say is that they will all be addressed, and I think you're going to be quite surprised by some of the developments that are coming. ;-)

As far as waiting 'til she starts matriculating at Sunnydale is concerned, Buffy is more concerned wit not wasting the time they have available to them to start making some significant changes as far as what she and her friends are going to do, and what they can make of themselves. Any time they wastes is time that their potential enemies have to possibly initiate new plans that she doesn't have any knowledge of - something she doesn't want to give even a chance of happening.

And I'm about half-way through writing the next chapter, so I'm hoping to posting that soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Scorpio
Review:
I really like this. The idea of mixing Buffy's old-life memories & Hermione's witchcraft into new-life Buffy is really neat. The effect that it had on her is incredible. Her serious dedication to her cause is a refreshing change from the Buffy who repeatedly shurked her duties in order to make cow-eyes at Angel all the while bitching about how unfair life is. That she immediately scared Angel off and turned to Willow & Xander as the best choice for loyal friendship makes total sense.

I hope that Buffy's ability with witchcraft allows her to bond with Willow...as well as provide the girl with stable continuous tutoring. Willow's biggest problem with magic was she was self-taught for the most part. Once Ms Calendar died...she was on her own. They could even pull Amy into it and make the start of a coven. I could see a Willow/Amy pairing here...or just go with the canon Willow/Oz pairing. Perhaps a threesome?

Maybe she can even keep Jesse alive this time around...especially if he knows about vamps and learns how to identify them/fight them before the whole Darla mess come September. A Jesse/Cordy pairing would be nice...not to mention fulfill his dreams.

Plus Xander/Buffy hotness is always a good thing.

Would really love to see more in this arc.
Comments from author:
Thanks for letting me know you're enjoying the story - it's always nice to hear that. ;-)

As far as what's going to be happening with the Scoobies, all I can say is that Buffy is going to do her best to ensure that things go quite differently this time around, and that she and her family aren't screwed over the way they were in the other life she learned about. There are going to be MANY changes made and a lot of events are going to be significantly different from what they were. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gaelyn
Review:
Just stumbled across this series of yours. I am enjoying it and there is SO much potential for the 3rd part (especially when/if Harry and Hermione show up). I noticed it hasn't been updated for almost a year. I hope you are able to start adding to this soon!
Comments from author:
Thanks for reviewing. And when the two groups do finally get together, things are going to be VERY different. ;-)

Well this is a nice start to third part of your ongoing series I can not wait to see the next chapter. I just hate to be continued.
Comments from author:
Glad to learn you're enjoying the series. ;-)

I've got the next chapter started, so now it's just a matte of Rea Life (tm) leaving me alone long enough to get it finished.

Review:
Here's hoping that your muse for this series comes back soon so that we can see the end of this nice story.
Comments from author:
I certainly hope you're right. ;-)

It's just that Real Life (tm) hasn't been all that cooperative lately. ;-(
