Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from LordSchmodder
Review:
You posting this on sundays (or saturday nights) is always a high point in the week for me.
So thanks.
On another hand: Didn't Simon already visit the library without some ill effects?
Comments from author:
I try to hit the weekend at any rate. ;-) Glad you enjoy it so much. Simon did visit the library but the why's and hows of his current are revealed in the next chapter.

Thanks for reviewing

Review:
Another heart wrenching and fun filled chapter. Endings like these keep us gasping for more. Argh. Thank you.
Comments from author:
Well, that is one reason for cliffhangers... Thanks for the compliments and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from (Past Donor)Glendon
Review:
Simon on a dark mana overload? That's...not of the good. Though I have to agree with everything he said. Poor Kendra. The girl is going to need a serious sit down after that. I'm now curious what Simon having his little out burst is going to make of the third shoe. We have Rowen, the Watchers practices finally coming back to take a bite, and then...

I'm guessing we'll find out what happened to Hazel at some point. Though, I'm not holding out too much hope that she fared even as well as Rowen did. That she is the one that Faith found isn't too likely with so many other lost children out there.

On another note I had an interesting flash when reading Hammond and O'Neil having their chat. I forgot which universe I was in and thought I was reading Fate's Little Plaything for a second. Guess that happens when you're reading multiple very good fics with similar character styles. Even when your dealing with different authors.
Comments from author:
Pretty bad, but not as bad as it could be. Simon XIV would be a lot worse...

Ellen is not Hazel, no. But more about that will be revealed soon, I hope.

Since Fate's little Plaything is an absolute favourite of mine, I'm very complimented indeed.

Thanks for reviewing

Review:
Good chapter. Both funny and serious mixed throughout quite well.
Another nasty cliffhanger though you are getting very mean of late :).
Don’t leave us hanging for too long please.
Comments from author:
Thank you, all depressing is no fun. I blame (and credit) Letomo. Though I awas easy to convicne. ;-)

Saturday should see the next update, I sincerely hope.

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from PATM
Review:
Le Guin is a goddess of scifi and fantasy, Lathe of Heaven and Left Hand of Darkness were my rotation favorites for years along with Norton, Aimov and ALL the rest. About Kendra though. When did she get rescued? In Forever... she was just captured. Is that info in another story somewhere else?
Comments from author:
Yes she is. The story that features Kendra's rescue is up, and I hope you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from Alastor
Review:
Very nice chapter, and I'm looking forward to when all of the different stories that you have going on are going to converge, especially when the extended Meier family goes to merry old England to save Luna. Since you seem to already be on the path to saving Fred before she goes to Pylea, I'd be interested to see what you could do with some of the other lesser known Buffy and Angel characters. One that comes to mind is Gwen Raiden, given her age when she was on Angel I'd say that she'd be in her mid to late teens at this point. You could have Danielle helping her since she lives in LA, and it'd also be an easy way to introduce Gunn earlier than normal as well. Just throwing out a few ideas. Looking forward to more! Update soon!
Comments from author:
The family shall head there pretty darn soon, yes. I'm not quite sure about other characters, I'm already fairly character heacy. So they might make appearances, but only as cameos. Life cannot get much worse for them after all...

Next update on this should go up on Saturday as scheduled.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from etienneofthewestwind
Review:
Well, I didn't expect the copy to have acquired one of the triplets' souls. I don't know if you're familiar with it, but Dave's mention of game time made me think of the cartoon ReBoot... Anyway, RowanWillow may be trapped in the machine, but at least she's got better surroundings and outside contact now. And WillowWillow just might think some of her actions through more in the future.

Xeno does have quite a name on him, doesn't he? And we get some backstory to his position on science merging with magic. I thought that Fred had been trapped in Pylea for five years, which would mean she should have all ready disappeared... How recent was the work Sam found? Will she get to skip a trip to Pylea?

Well Kendra's arrival brings multiple issues to the group's attention. I am glad she escaped sacrifice. As for the cliffhanger... well, that's one way for the group to find out where the Hellmouth lurks.
Comments from author:
I know ReBoot, yes. A fun series. Willow and Rowan both are quite shocked. A signal lesson to both of them...

Fred was sent to Pylea on May 7th 1996, it 's still 1995, so soon, yes...

Kendra's arrival is a catalyst to connect Forever is too long and Lonely Souls. As for the Cliffhanger, I share the blame with Letomo. ;-)

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from shazamfan
Review:
Oh man..Simon of the Black Eyes. Damn and I thought Darth Willow was bad...somehow I feel that Darth Simon would make her look like a cute fuzzy bunny!

Things are sure cranking up on the Hellmouth and loved how you worked Lovegood in for Sam to mention. Not sure on the time line...but might Fred be heading off to her other dimensional trip soon?

Turkey Day is closing in and I can't wait to see what it holds for this expanded Summer Clan.

-J-
Comments from author:
Simon is not so bad. Simon's daddy, he was bad... Wait till you see that particular one appear.

Fred, if all goes to her mad scientist mentor's plan, would go to Pylea in May 1996. It is now november 1995...

Actually I intend to keep Thanksgiving fairly short. Lots of things to do and write after all...

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from AllenPitt
Review:
Huh. So that's how Kendra got out of it. And.. Rowan. Didn't see that coming. Good plot development. All she needs now is a body. Willow's twin. Weird. I hope she gets one, and is identical to Willow. Ok, that explains Simon's truly nasty statements towards the end there. he doesn't like watchers, but was pushing it way too far, especially knowing Kendra was there. Hm, good explanation for how Kendra made it to the states.
'Taken from' at age of 5? I always was a bit suspicious about that "my parents gave me up..." thing that Kendra said.
I sure hope that vote doesn't oust the Council, they're the ones who know who the potentials are... one could see a new Slayer called, and simply not ever going to North America, which could cause all sorts of problems.
Primus? Too bad Giles didn't have that in the show, being the Slayer's watcher seemed like the lowest level of watcher, with HQ watchers having all the authority. Weird. (I did like that one girl who 'wrote her thesis' on Spike, she was funny).
Comments from author:
Yup, Rowan. Unexpeceted depths, that girl. I'm glad you liked my exposition/explanation. Simon really does not like the Watchers. And the Hellmouth and the things in that file provided just that little push...

Simon might start looking for ways to locate Potentials, you never know...

In the show Giles got treated pretty badly, in my AU that means Dumbledore (or his non-Potter analog) was the head of the Council, and that Quentin Travers never lost his Slayer.

Glad you liked it and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from EllandrahSylver
Review:
Yep. That's an evil cliffie. But we found one of Willow's triplet sisters. Is Willow going to tell Rowan about Hazel?

And hey, Kendra FINALLY made it to Buffy, which is a good thing.
Comments from author:
Yup, Evil cliffhangers for the win! Two down, one to go? And probably, yes, but after she's had a chance to settle a bit.

Yeah, Kendra's awfully slow...

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from Senko
Review:
Growls at author for leaving it there.

I think I missed Kendras capture though so what's happened in Africa? and for that matter with Travers the character you've had crop in the books doesn't seem the sort to do what happened with Faith. Arragrant yes, believes in the need for training yes, killing experienced martial artists who are giving a potential a stable home and martial arts training no even after they refused to let a watcher near her it'd make more sense to leave her there until and unless she's activated. Which probably means, given this "Watcher gets a voice on the council" it was the one who was trying to get access to her in the first place who arranged this.

Be interesting to see what's happening in England given the fact that the current actions have not only started getting watcher's killed "left and right" but its also prompted a powerful neutral power to decide whether or not to deny them access to America permanently or at least go to war with them. There's going to be groups who'll try to ride this into power even if they don't genuinely feel the slayers should be treated better.

I am curious how Glady's got killed though given that she and her husband were immortals I wouldn't have though the wetworks team would have beheaded/tortured them just killed them and extracted faith. Well we'll see I guess.
Comments from author:
Sorry about that.;-)

Well, the whole Faith/Kendra thing is in Forever is too long even for us, Kendra's capture included. Though the full plan hasn't been explained yet. It will be in a future chapter. It may or not be expounded upon in the last chapter of Forever.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from borgrabbit
Review:
Did you ever read a book titled 'Valentina: Soul in Sapphire'? There could be parallels to Rowan's situation. If she became a corporation, it would give her legal standing as a person and a form of immortality until she got a body. Just a thought.
Great Chapter!
Comments from author:
I've never heard of it, but I shall look. A corporation, eh? I think the world might not be ready for that yet. ;-)

Thank you, and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from trongod
Review:
Nice to see Kendra is safe, although her fellow prisoners are not. And Rowan is quickly - from our sense of time - getting better... Excellent!!

Now, Simon is standing just about on top of the Hellmouth, and now his eyes have gone black....

Can you say, 'Oh, shit!!'? I knew you could!!
Comments from author:
The fate of her fellow prisoners will be addressed next chapter. Rowan is getting better. Then again, she's in a constant 'Joyce Hug', even if it is electronic.

Oh shit? YEs, I can. Why? ;-)

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from Eureka
Review:
OK so Simon has went Darth Simon (Better get him away from the Hellmouth!), Kendra has made it there and was out of it (Now awake and prolly pissed!), Wills has found the soul of her sister Rowan (Needs to find a body to be put in of course.), and you left us with a cliffie! Did I really leave anything important out?
Please update soonish Vid. I really love this series of stories!
Comments from author:
The problem is that ley lines come together to form places of magical strength, like Hellmouths. And Simon is quite good with Leylines... Kendra might be pissed, but she's not yet a Slayer, just a frightened girl thrust into situation and place she has no real understanding of. But Willow has found her sister. What will follow from there...You'll need to wait.

Several things have been updated since this, I hope you enjoyed them. NExt update should go up as scheduled.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky" from RebeccaAshling
Review:
Wow! That was a wham chapter! Poor Rowan! Now I'm wondering what's become of Hazel. Poor Faith! :( And now Simon has gone Dark Willow, directly over the Hellmouth! Cliffhanger or what? BTW, nice recycliing of a Star Trek: TOS episode title. Definitely put to better use as a chapter title ;) A great chapter, please update as soon as it's feasible for you :)
Comments from author:
Thank you. You'll have to keep reading to find out what happened to Hazel I fear. ;-) Well Faith's story is told in Forever is too long. But yeah, it's pretty grim in places. Yes, Simon has gone Darth Willow. It's probably going to be a warning to his daughters/sister/niece/apprentices. Well, we can hope.

I love that title, and the concept, if not the entire execution of the episode. The next update is written and should be up on schedule.

Glad you're enjoying it, thanks for reviewing
