Review of chapter "Seers, Hunters and Shamans" from Meneldur
Review:
Damn it! I wrote an entire review for this chapter, and it was eaten up, I think because the spare chapter was deleted or something! So, shortened version:
Excellent chapter, good handling of issues. Xander will have more family, nice to see him and Simon doing more bonding. Interesting facts regarding Jessica, but I'm more concerned about what this means about Jenny.
Tara and Mary are gone. Hopefully Janet will get along better with her family, Mary might get together with Jethro, and when they come back, Tara and Willow will get together.
Wonder when they'll discover the reason for Willow's sisters death.
Brenda's some sort of clone, cool, what does this mean regarding her family and Brandon? Good that they're going to take care of Winters and Wolfram and Hart, may be opening too many fronts, but since they're several groups, it might work.
Hillbillies- hilarious, loved the Hazzard and Abbot and Costello reference.
Cant' wait to see the epic event of Jack meeting Arlene and her entire family, as well as his daughter. Please do it soon! 'Till then, Meneldur.
Comments from author:
My apologies. I thought I had posted it only once and I hope you can understand my desire to remove it quickly.

Xander actually has the most (on screen) family of all the Scoobies, his parents, two drunken uncles and an Aunt. But he needs bonding and Simon is uniquely qualified to understand and support him.

If all works out well, next chapter will be Jack meets Arlene...

Just started reading the other day and finished it today just couldn't stop reading. As for character death hey it happens now if a gruelsome and gory death than maybe a mild warning.

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from (Recent Donor)SamuraiCatFan
Review:
Excellent chapter. Extremely well done.

I am definitely of the view that character deaths (or any deaths) should not be noticed in advance. Noting it in advance takes away the impact that such events have and in my view take away some of the ooomph that such scenes are supposed to have. I am very much a member of the "no spoiler" school, other than those that are hinted at through things like prophecy, slayer dreams, etc. I believe that if a story has character death(s) that the rating one assigns to a story is sufficient to address the potential impact character death can have on younger readers.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I am of the same opinion, but if enough people complain I might add such a thing. (LS does have a fairly high rating, so people should be warned. Buffy itself, after all, was rated 15.)

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from BlazeVein
Review:
Hi, very nice chapter.

Bob Munroe the chief police - he works for the Mayor. And know about vampires and stuff, so he is playing dumb?

I keep hoping that Kit leave the town with Arlene and Evy, but with the mercs it seems it not going to happen soon; and nice touch about the compulsion-spell, and that Jack go away because of that. Eager to see the reunion with him.

Clarice and Patrick are so sweet ! :)

Oh I am all up for Joyce and Simon having a baby . Or could be twins, a boy and a girl :P What all the magic are for? XD

Seriously ewwwww for kissing the mummy-girl when she look mummy-like.
Comments from author:
Thank you, glad you enjoyed it.

The official line as pandered to by Bob Munroe. He knows very well what is going on, but this is the Ampata version of Gangs on PCP.

Kit is very firmly staying with Joyce. It will be a miracle if she lets the girl go to school on schedule... As for Jack and Arlene, you will have to wait and see. Glad you like Clarice and Patrick.

Magic cannot solve everything, just look at poor Amata...

Love is a strange thing. Xander loved Amata, and even though he would have preferred kissing her as a beautiful girl, he loved her, and not just her appearance. Not kissing her would have hurt her dreadfully.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from AllenPitt
Review:
Yeah, that's Russell Winters alright. He didn't just grab and drain, he liked to play with his victims, stalk them, etc etc. Sounds like he's going to get his a few year early. Too bad in a way, I enjoyed how Angel disposed of him in the series. As it turned out, he couldn't fly. Who knew?
Xander is going to develop a complex if this happens on his next few dates. Anya, here we come! ...
Nice bit with Darla. Not sure she actually volunteered to be a vampire, or rather that she understood what was being "offered"... but she had been embittered by life, definitely. Maybe W&H will still bring her back?
You know... if you ever get up to "The Wish" ep --it'd be interesting if the other world was the one from the tv series--imagine a Buffy from S3 coming into this one--she'd seem very hard & alone to the people in this 'verse, like the one in The Wish...
Comments from author:
I viewed the episode, but I wondered if others perceived him the way I did. Glad I'm not the only one. ( I always wondered about the weak glass though...)

Well, his next major date in canon was Cordelia. I shall set him up with Dru...;-)

I do hope to get up to "The Wish", time wise, though it may never happen. Willow and Xander are not in the same sort of relationship after all. The way I am running through Season 2 opponents, I should race through that... btw, I read a Wishverse story once that involved Buffy accidentally killing Joyce, I forget the title and I'd like to rea read it. Do you have any ideas?

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from Eureka
Review:
Good chapter Vid. Kinda sad, but all must die at one time or another. Just wish you could have saved her, but I understand she didn't survive in canon either. Glad they found out about the spell that was still just a tad bit hanging on there, and that hopefully they can find out who/what put it on her. Hopefully we find out that Jack had one put on him too and that it IS O'Neil. PLEASE don't forget to post next Sat.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I may write a story one day in which she is saved. The spell is actually really insidious. I have high hopes of posting on Saturday.

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from Meneldur
Review:
This was an excellent chapter. It was highly emotional, yet at the same time managed to wrap up a few threads in a very good way.
The part with Amata was so sad. But I think it was needed, and not just for character growth. It's like 'Help' in season seven, where they discover they can't always save everyone. They needed to know that now, especially when they're fighting such epic battles.
So, Xander and Jenny are cousins, and we'll have to see where that leads. But so far, it seems to be proceeding well.
Amata told Buffy about the Master, and 'forewarned is forewarned', 'knowing is half the battle'. I'd set fire to the sewers and block the entrances, but we'll have to see how they handle it.
Brenda will hopefully get better, though I do wonder how important Russel and the whole thing is. I'm hoping it's not too much of a major issue, and only a small thing, wrapping it up, but who knows?
And, Marigold is going to be gunned for more and more. Also, Arlene actually knows about SG coming for her (though only in the vaguest possible sense). I can't wait to see that, and I hope all the meetings - with Daniel, Jack and Sam happen soon.
Can't wait until next week, Meneldur.
PS Who is Lebannen, that even Willow wants to track her? Same for dark queen.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I felt that Amata could not be saved in her body, not everybody can be saved, not even with their resources, but her soul was set free to move on to its just reward.

Setting fire to the sewers will just lead to gas explosions... ;-)

THe Halliwell's vengeance against Winters will probably be a one shot. Unless they drag others in with them, in which case it may end up in the main story line.

Arlene knows someone is coming to activate her. How she reacts to the precise orders, that is a whole different ballgame.

Lebannen is the hacker who 'outed' Willow by sending mails from her e-mail address to Jenny and Giles, who talked to Joyce. Willow is rather annoyed with her. Witch_queen is the best hacker in the world. Identity unknown. Dark Daemon was Fritz, now deceased. White_knight is Dave.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from war
Review:
Good to see Amata get the peace she deserves and she was surrounded by family when she went. Question, with the breaking of the curse does her bloodline lose the wealth and power like the frat did? hope so.

So at least they have new targets(Winters and whoever sent the mercs) to take out their sorrow on. Getting payback makes for great comfort food.

So maybe the reason Jack left was a spell? That makes more sense now considering the kind of man he is. But if so they really need to get in touch with him and let him know he has a daughter.

Good story looking forward to your next chapter.
Comments from author:
Yes, at least she has peace. Your question will be answered in the next chapter.

Penny Halliwell is out for blood. Winters already tangled with her once, and is not going to be pleased to have to do so again...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The sorrows of chasing the Sun" from asqwerth
Review:
@borgrabbit and vidicon:

Sorry for being pedantic, but as a matter of interest, "Get of the Unicorn" can be a grammatical phrase with a proper meaning, if "Get" is used in its other meaning of "offspring".

I'm not saying that was the actual, intended title, of course. :-)

Meanwhile, another great, if sad, chapter, vidicon! This continues to be one of my favourite stories.

By the way, who is Gabriel Meier? Have we encountered this character before or is this one of the things you'll be revealing in the next chapter?
Comments from author:
Heh. I'm aware of the meaning though I admit that it had not occured to me to read it in that way. That may be due to knowing the contents of the book.

Thank you, glad you are enjoying it. Great Uncle Gabriel (Gabriel Alexander Fillmore Meier) was the younger son and left for the West under a slight cloud for his perversions with lower class girls (Primarily red headed Irish...) and built Hooghwater and bought the Manapoint, several years before the Mayor arrived in Sunnydale. He also collected the greatest library of pornographica in the western hemisphere and liked naughty statues a lot. He died of pneumonia and consumption or booze and the Clap, depending who you ask. Most of this information can be found in chapter nine, the rest is scattered.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing
