Review of chapter "Chapter 24: Good Advice Returned" from zigpal
Review:
Great update. Damn Wes and his good advice, Buffy could have had a nice cleansing yelling. Of course, that would've been bad since she would be yelling at Tara.
Comments from author:
Can't yell at Tara; it'd be like kicking a puppy or something.

Review of chapter "Chapter 24: Good Advice Returned" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
Review:
Very good chapter. I liked that Wes managed to turn Buffy's own words back on her, to stress how wrong it was for her to keep that serious/big a secret from the gang.
Comments from author:
It's funny 'cause when I had Buffy say that to Wes before, I hadn't intended for him to throw it back at her (I still hadn't decided how to let the Spike secret out at that point).

Review of chapter "Chapter 22: New Meets Old" from JasonBarnett
Review:
oh that's a nice thing to say. Why not just declare Faith a lost cause
Comments from author:
No, a lost cause would be somebody who should be killed.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20: Tara’s Big Mouth" from zigpal
Review:
Great update. I loved the name of the chapter, and when I saw why, I had to giggle.
Comments from author:
Somebody had to spill the beans; might as well be somebody Buffy would have to forgive eventually.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20: Tara’s Big Mouth" from (Recent Donor)christytrekkie
Review:
Good I'm glad Tara spoke up. Sometimes the scoobies tended to be a little to judgmental and I understand that to a certain extent as Buffy tended to keep what she really felt away from them trying to protect them. But now that some things are now out in the open the healing can began I say. Here's to hoping that Buffy isn't to angry and shuts them out even more.
Comments from author:
I may have to use the idea of Buffy being upset - at least for a little while. Thanks for the poke.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20: Tara’s Big Mouth" from JasonBarnett
Review:
you're a fan of Wes but not of Xander?
Comments from author:
Exactly. Part of it probably stems from the fact that I find AtS!Wes sexy before he starting having sex with Lilah and chaining up Justine in the closet. Never felt that way about Xander; at best he's a cute puppy dog.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20: Tara’s Big Mouth" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
So, Tara steps up and takes Spike's place as the truth teller. That is unexpected, but right. She's nothing if honest. If this helps her get her ovaries back, then I say it's a damn good thing. No more pretend everything is all right. No more hiding misery and then getting screwed over repeatedly.

As for Xander, I hope that you, like me, can see his good qualities... I was once quite anti Xander, until I realized it was because of fanfic. Xander of canon is far from perfect... just like everyone else. But when Buffy would have died, he was there. When Buffy was alone after the master, he and Willow were there. When Buffy and Willow went off to college and forgot about him just like Spike said, Xander hung on, despite having a life that was going no where b/c he had none of the resources they did, he didn't let that stop him fighting alongside.

Yes, he made terrible mistakes, but it was Willow, not him that brought Buffy back... to me, he's a simple guy. He loves Buffy. He's glad she's in his life. He makes mistakes. He's got no confidence, probably because of a background where both his parents tore him down or ignored him... Yet, he still manages to be a loyal friend. I don't see superman when I see Xander.

I see a wounded human who loves his friends in spite of his deficits and who tries a lot harder than a lot of people with his lot in life would bother. By season seven, he's gone from jobless, to construction worker, to construction manager... He's grown up and become someone valuable in a fight, but *not* as a warrior. An army doesn't fight with out its mechanics, its engineers -- that's why there's the army corps of engineers, quartermaster corps -- seabees. (Where I come from it's call Support and Services and it's almost *1/3* of the forces).

Most importantly to our two superpeople, he's still their friend. He's seen most of what they've seen so he 'gets' how hard this life is and he's a normalizing influence. To me, that's the cool thing... not his super properties... Xander has dimensions... you don't have to make him your favorite, but give him a chance that's not colored by the idiot fangirls and fanboys who try to turn him into an uber-man because they don't get that there's a role for those people. Unglamorous, but indispensable.

To you I say: It's OK... I am not expecting you to make Xander into some kind of big hero... but you'll be OK, if you let him be 'just Xander'... a good man, with a small, but useful role in their lives... who loves them a lot. If Buffy's epitaph is 'she saved the world a lot', Xander's would be 'he loved his friends a lot'.

Comments from author:
Since Tara is one of my fav characters, I don't mind nudging her character into a role that she might not have been on the show. It helps that I could see her doing this if pushed, though. She just needed to be a little stronger, both for herself and for her adopted family.

I get what you're saying about Xander, but I'm not as good as you. When I see all the Super!Xander crap, I have to retaliate by tearing him down. Occasionally, if I'm not riled up by a story, review, challenge, etc. I'll try to write a canon!Xander into a story when he was a good friend and not a judgmental prick. Like when I had him give Buffy the right advice about Riley instead of that crap he shoveled on the show.

Review:
Holy s***. I forgot that no one told Dawnie yet. That should go real well... Love this fic.
Comments from author:
Yeah, that's the problem with short updates...tend to lose track of the story's time and who knows what. Actually, I went back and found I hadn't told Xander either.
