Review of chapter "Is It Hot, Or is it Just You?" from SCIfilover
Review:
Great One! welcome back. It has been a long wait for me for an update from you and i have been ever tormented by Buffy, Willow, and Slayer wank of massive proportions. On this site their are fics filled with massive Buffy masturbation like in one fic where willow can slow down time and power a Stargate indefinitely, Buffy talks down to the DOCTOR from doctor who who has saved the multiverse and the universe multiple times. Fics where Buffy rants about how she is the slayer and all must bow before her and how the darkness fears her and most heretical of all buffy with willow and a prophecy beat Galactus. I call total BS. Anyway, welcome back.

What i love about this fic is that or has normal people fighting against incredible odds and having no unearned super power or whining. Good luck.
Comments from author:
I agree with you, that is part of the reason I started writing, I was running out of good Xander and/or Cordy stories to read. I think the reason the two are so popular, is because they are a whole lot of things Buffy/Angel/Willow/Spike aren't. The four of them just completely overtook their respective shows, most other characters were simply shoved aside.

While every character has a fair amount of unbelievably over-powered stories, some are definitely more obnoxious then others. I like to keep things simple, anything that X&C get, they earn.

Thanks for a great review, it's much appreciated.

Review of chapter "Is It Hot, Or is it Just You?" from Kovac
Review:
I like that you took the two "normal" ones, as in no superpowers to fall back on, to fight this war. It makes their fight much more intense, difficult, and worthy of admiration IMHO. Talk about a new outlook on life and death.

I played Gears of War - long time ago but it was fun- so I can say you got the atmospher just right.

That story's a blast. Boum!
Comments from author:
That's why I started it at the end of season 1, no soldier memories. Plus, they both hated each other, which made the arguments all the funnier. Any upgrades they might get in the future, will definitely be earned.

I've tried to keep the setting and the enemies as close as possible to the game, while trying to ground it in reality as well. I'm glad it's worked out.

Thanks for the review.

good to see an update ...
Comments from author:
Me too, I just put it off for lack of inspiration, then about two weeks ago, I just started writing. Hopefully, I'll be a little more quick about it in the future. Thank you.

Review of chapter "Is It Hot, Or is it Just You?" from GotWolfy
Review:
So to see if i got this strait Xander spent 3 hour putting armor on a corpse while monster are hunting him . Wow! talk about out of character. Xander has seen corpse before. why is he so obsessed with this one?
He spent weeks going crazy for a corpse.
is he in love with the corpse? or maybe he is possessed by a demon.
Anyway that's not Xander. He is much more practical than that. Even in the first season. Remember when Gille told him that the only way to reverse a spell from a witch was to cut of her head his response was off with her head. So his infatuation with the corpse that he never knew while it was alive is completely out of left field.
Comments from author:
Xander is a person that cares about people. The whole basis of his character, is that he'd fight to the death for someone he cared about. He saw Corporal Murphy as a victim of the Locust and Mongo, of course he'd be angry about what happened to her.

Cordelia was actually the person to replace the armor on the corpse. It's not like they spend every minute of the day in fear of being found by the Locust. Considering the abuse the corpse has been through, plus the extreme cold, I very much doubt it would be easy to conform a body into hard steel armor.

His 'infatuation' is simple. The woman had a strong resemblance to Willow, and he sees her fate as a possible one of Cordy's. Of course he's going to do whatever he can to keep that from happening.

Murphy was the victim in this, Xander has always been more or less an avenger. It fits his character.

Thank you for the insight.

Review of chapter "A Dish Best Served Cold" from Darksnider
Review:
Was this a repost?
Comments from author:
I was trying to update the older chapters, and I accidentally hit 'Add Chapter' instead of 'Edit Chapter'. Sorry about that. The next chapter should be up in a few days, promise.

Review of chapter "A Dish Best Served Cold" from eriktheviking
Review:
A well written, obsessed Queen C in bitca mode.
Comments from author:
That's what I was going for, you mess with Queen C and you suffer. Any Gears in the future should keep that in mind.

Thanks for the review, I appreciate you sticking with me.

Review of chapter "A Dish Best Served Cold" from grd
Review:
Best torture ever to someone truly deserving of the honor. Glad to see the two learn about the comm mistake. Funny how even the enemy moved away.
Comments from author:
By the end of this, I was as sick of Mongo as they were. I found the entire torture scene therapeutic. I'm glad I can move further with the story now.

The comm thing does seem kind of obvious, but I saw it as a 'live and learn' type thing for the two of the.

There's a specific sound a man makes when something happens to him like that, regardless of species, I think all males can recognize it.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "A Dish Best Served Cold" from Vilkath
Review:
Considering how many war movies and games Xander has probly seen in his life.. and the fact they were using 'stolen coms' you would think they'd at least have the brains to talk in code over radio. Over all Xander and coredlia seem to be making one REALLY stupid mistake after another, then heading out to make more without thinking twice about anything. They never really seem to learn from previous mistakes. Plus risking thier lives to take the guy alive?

Story started off so well with them seemingly playing things smart in trying to survive. Once cordelia got over her 'serve me I'm a queen' crap the story looked so logical and interesting. Now they are acting like stupid emotional kids all over again.
Comments from author:
I understand what you're saying, but part of the reason I started this at the first season were because they were still stupid emotional kids at that point in time. If they did everything perfect, there would be no real suspense to the story.

Also, the COG is a professional army who take massive losses and lose ground every day. The Locust wouldn't look like much if they were easily beaten by a couple of teenagers.

Now that Mongo is taken care of they're going to be taking some time off. They'll be checking out the books they found and do some planning. I'm hoping to see them back on track.

Thanks for the review, I always like seeing what you have to say.

Review of chapter "Mind the Gap" from Mechconstrictor
Review:
Okay, just finished up to this point. The whole first person thing took some getting used to. I tend not to read them. The story itself is nice, though there are too many changes of POV. Other then that, the story has promise.
Comments from author:
At first, chapter eight was going to be a one time thing. Have Cordy's perspective as a change of pace and then go back to just Xander. But I realized she is just as fun to write for me.

I know the back and forth can get a little trying, it's not the easiest thing try to synch them up sometimes. Overall though, I think it works pretty good.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Mind the Gap" from eriktheviking
Review:
Well written confusion in combat and points for Mongo being a stereotypical love to hate character.
Comments from author:
I thought about giving him some kind of redeemable characteristic, but honestly, nothing fit him. The guy is supposed to be a cross between Captain Spaulding and Hannibal Lecter, only without the funny or the smarts.

Thanks for the review. I'm happy you like it.

Review of chapter "Mind the Gap" from Tjin
Review:
Still interesting, writing stories based on games is very hard, you seem to be doing an excellent job.

thanks for letting us read

Comments from author:
I've had to jump back and forth between YouTube and Gearspedia a bunch of times trying to double-check stuff for research. It's definitely worth it when the chapter is complete though.

Thank you for the compliment and review.
