Review of chapter "Firelight" from Vilkath
Review:
A very interesting start and I particularly liked the bit about Jessie in the early part of the chapter. I don't particularly like the character, he suffers from the 'he is dead so he must be a perfect saint' cliche in fics where Jessie doesn't die, or is brought back to life. But the point about a supposedly life long friend of both Xander and Willow is killed, by Xander's hand and basically forgotten about rather quickly. It took a whole 3 seasons or so for Willow to forget Xander and move onto being Buffy's friend and ally over Xander.

It is funny that when people need to explain why Xander cares about Willow they go on about being friends since kindergarten. Yet the feelings and loyalty really doesn't seem to go both ways with Willow towards Xander or Jessie. Once Willow got over her crush dating Oz and then Tara Xander's role in her life all but stopped most of the time, nearly any one else was a higher priority than him with the minor exception of Dark Willow and Xander stopping her.

Over all the story hits on a few key points, questions a few weak points in Buffy canon and sets up an interesting way to cross over the Gargoyles series that doesn't involve Halloween. But the real test will be to see how far it goes, stories with less common cross overs like this have a bad habit of being unfinished after only a few chapters.

Review of chapter "Firelight" from crimsonkyuubi
Review:
*sigh* as usual you have started another great story. and ill give it 6 months before you start another one and forget about this one as you seem to do for all your stories. but as i said another great chapter i look forward to seeing this continued no matter how short.
Comments from author:
I do appologize if it seems that way with me, I'm afraid that my creative side fills up with so many great ideas that if I don't write them down eventually I will burst. So I take on way, way too many projects and thus some stories fall to the wayside as I try my best to focus on the ones I wish to finish. Trust me I have not 'forgotten' about any of those wonderful ideas. The problem is there is so little time in the day to work, if I could just sit in front of this computer and type from morning to night seven days straight I'd probably still not be finished with some of my in-progress stories.

I will not abandon all of these wonderful ideas to the halls of incompleteness, however I can not in good conscious write up some mediocre half-arsed chapter and expect it to live up to the expectations of my readers.

I may be taking a hiatus from Buffyverse fics, but the plan is hopefully when I get back to them in a couple of months time I'll be ready and raring to go, allowing me to finish off some of those projects before we hit 2011.

If I get a Co-Author interested in this story though you might see updates more regularily, depending on how often the co-author works on this story with me. :D ;)

Review of chapter "Firelight" from kayron
Review:
I watched the Gargoyles cartoon ages ago. Wasn't Demona evil? She betrayed the other gargoyles to human killers? If she's working for the Mayor, won't she try to corrupt Xander? I'll be tracking just in case the story is continued.
Comments from author:
Item #1 Demona was not evil, she was a villain yes, but she was not evil. She despised all humans because of what they did to her clan, but really she was to blame for allowing it to happen in the first place. Her guilt at her own foolish desire to live free of the humans at Castle Wyvern turned into a twisted hatred of the humans because she could not live with her own culpability.

Item #2 Demona is NOT working for the Mayor, she was under the mistaken belief that the Mayor had summoned her to Sunnydale in another attempt to get her to join his cause. (In my head Demona and Wilkins met prievously, and she turned him down flat.)

Item #3 She may attempt to coerce Xander, but I doubt she'd be able to corrupt him. Still having a Fay even one as ill-trained as Xander working for her would be a benefit and something Demona couldn't seriously pass up. (Especially since Xander isn't Puck.)

Glad you liked the story.

Review of chapter "Firelight" from Questara
Review:
Well, I like it at the very least, I'd offer to help, but *shrugs* if writing was drawing, I'd be at about the stick figure level.
Comments from author:
That's ok, I'm glad you liked the story though. And I'm confident that HOPEFULLY someone will be interested in Co-Authoring with me.

Review of chapter "Firelight" from Raider
Review:
very, very cool.

and this is one story I wish to see more of.

not very many gargoyle themed crossovers here, this is perhaps the second or third one I've read.
Comments from author:
Really? Funny according to the site there are 42 or there were 42 before mine got posted. Although I guess it's possible that you haven't checked that section of the site. I am very glad you liked my story though enough to comment and hopefully there will be more.
