Review of chapter "Many a Mile" from NeedlessNoodles
Review:
I love stories with Joyce as the main character. There's so few and even fewer that are lengthy and/or multi-chaptered. I think you've done well on her personality and would love to see where this goes.
Comments from author:
Joyce is definitely an underused and sometimes under-appreciated character. I've always liked how she was a far cry from perfect, but I've always thought that made her more real. Though I'm not sure if this story will be continued since I have a fickle and odd muse. Thank you for taking the time to review.

Review of chapter "Many a Mile" from (Past Donor)Aomizuoko
Review:
Not many people can write Joyce in such a believable manner as you do. I really enjoyed your fic, the way you had Joyce explaining what happened to Micah - it felt real. I could feel the emotional stress within it.

I'm really glad you decided to include Dawn in this, and you managed to make Hank not be a bad guy, which not many people are able to do and keep him in character. Overall, I really enjoyed this one-shot and would love to read more. I would love to see Joyce with Faith, Buffy and Dawn as a family, I would love to read some more about this verse.

To see Joyce grieving would be (as bad as this sounds) lovely to read. I would love to see how Joyce saw her relationship with Hank in this verse.

I do wonder how you dealt with the slayer powers and the differences between the Buffy verse and the Anita verse. Anyway, I would love to read some more, even if they're just snap shots into this verse!

I would love, especially, to see how the four girls reacted, with emphasis on Faith, Dawn and Buffy! but, we'll see how that goes, eh? Anyway, good luck on continuing!
Comments from author:
Thank you. I have a soft spot for Joyce and I think she's one of the few characters on BtVS that really does have spectacular comebacks after her often knee-jerk, and very human, reactions to stressful situations.

Dawn's a versatile character and I'm curious as to her reactions now that she's a were and I've never thought of Hank as a bad guy. He did some questionable things, but he was never shown to be hateful towards his children when he had *actual* screen time. He was actually quite the opposite and appeared to be a caring father and I think Joyce would remember and cherish those memories above any fights or disagreements they had.

This story is an AU and does not deal with the Slayer aspect at all. Thank you for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Many a Mile" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
interesting, although I can never imagine Buffy being quiet and just letting her ass get kicked...
Comments from author:
Thank you. As for Buffy, well, this story is told from Joyce's perspective so the audience doesn't actually know what's going on with Dawn and Buffy. Though truth be told I can't imagine Buffy keeping her mouth shut either which explains the bruises, but keeping in mind the fact that she's not the Slayer and a newbie shifter against a pride of werelions with a thirteen year old sister to worry about I think she'd do her best to avoid conflict.

Review:
I love this! I've never read a Joyce fic before and I love it. I wonder if you're planning on continuing this story though?
Comments from author:
Thank you. I think Joyce is an under used and under appreciated character. I do have plans to continue this story, but the when remains to be decided.

Review of chapter "Many a Mile" from anyareine
Review:
I've just re-read this. It's one of my favourites.

I like how you have portrayed all the characters, including those that the characters only mention; Buffy, Faith and Dawn.

With Buffy, it's very cool to see a non-slayer Buffy trying to protect her family like that and even sacrificing herself for them. Goes to show that it's not being a Slayer that gives her that courage and instinct, that it was in her all along. Very nice.

I can see Faith clearly in my brain pan. Her protectiveness of Dawn and the willingness to be there with Buffy, who I can imagine being very resistant to whatever the pride is putting her and Dawn through.

I can see a lot of Buffy in Joyce. Well it's probably that Buffy takes after her mother a lot.

I'm gushing, so I'm just gonna press the Submit Review button now.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I think insipid cheerleader or not Buffy would still care about her family and try to protect/save them the best she could during an emergency. I can see Faith bonding with the new outcasts because I don't believe she'd be a willing participant in tormenting/torturing a thirteen year old and she'd respond to Buffy trying, and probably failing, to protect her sister.

Joyce was always shown to be pretty fantastic at recovering from shocks. She might not do so well during the actual event, but she rallies with the best of them. Thank you for taking the time to review, the gushing was much appreciated. :)

Review of chapter "Many a Mile" from (Past Donor)Dianasis
Review:
The story is a bit rough yet on the part of Micah, but you've really fleshed out Joyce well.

Intriguing. I'd like to read more.
Comments from author:
I’m curious about the rough comment, generic I would have agreed with, but rough intrigues me. Micah is the most cordial of all of Anita’dom and since he’s the leading member of the Coalition for the Better Understanding Between Humans and Lycanthropes he’d have to be levelheaded and open minded towards the people coming to him. Would you be willing to be more specific? I’m always willing to improve my writing and feel free to send me a PM through my profile.

Joyce was the central character of the ficlet with Micah taking a far second and Vivian had a blink and you’ll miss it cameo so Joyce would have gotten the most fleshing out. Her pain in losing Hank, and by default her girls, and her shame in not being able to save them definitely took center stage. Truth be told though, this ficlet is a complete story. There maybe more in the future, muse permitting, but this is it for now. Thank you for taking the time to review and don’t be surprised if this review shows up in the anti-twits section of the TtH forums because your honesty is refreshing.

Sorry, but at this time the story is complete. There's a chance I might write more in this 'verse but it wouldn't always be Joyce centered. Thank you for reviewing.
