Review of chapter "There's no such thing as Hourglass Eyes" from Gulanticus
Review:
Interesting chapter. I think that this is a first for me to read a DragonLance crossover. If I may, I would recommend that this story not be limitted to just Xander, but to spend equal time with Jesse and Willow
Comments from author:
Xander is the main character, but those two will definitely be playing their parts. There are a few others who will feature big as well.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "There's no such thing as Hourglass Eyes" from reiite
Review:
An excellent in depth chapter. It's nice to see Xander gain a power but lose out so equally at the same time. Makes thing interesting.
Comments from author:
That was my goal. If I was going to write a Xander-Gets-Super-Powers fic, I wanted to do it my way. I generally don't do mega-super-powers unless it's completely and utterly over the top and silly. This isn't that kind of fic.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "There's no such thing as Hourglass Eyes" from eriktheviking
Review:
Possibly the best I've ever read for Xander coming to terms with Halloween's aftermath.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I really tried to show that. It bugged me a little that Xander in the show never really showed how things had changed after Halloween, and I wanted to delve into that a bit here.

Review of chapter "There's no such thing as Hourglass Eyes" from Teucrian
Review:
Good writing so far. I look forward to reading more of the story. Excellent choice to examine the consequences here (rather than just giving somebody powers as seems somewhat standard for Halloween-type fics).
Comments from author:
I really wanted to get into the consequences of what could happen. I COULD have just given Xander the powers, but a character without flaws gets stale after a while. This Xander has Raistlin's curse and didn't even want the power in the first place. But now that he's been in the hospital, he looks and is starting to think a little like Raistlin.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "There's no such thing as Hourglass Eyes" from Orchamus
Review:
Magnificent, truly magnificent. I liked how you had Willow affected by the spell too, though we have yet to see if the same applies to Jesse. A willow looking somewhat similar to Tika is a rather better Willow, perhaps she won't be seen as the sister figure anymore? Meh, anyway, I'm rather curious as to the path Xander will take. Perhaps a good Black Robe, or will he stay of the Red? And how will the others on the Hellmouth react to this, will he become a power in his own right, with Willow taking the place of Caramon? Tika was, after all, a formidable fighter in her own right. Also rather interested in seeing how Buffy and Giles react to him.
Comments from author:
Well, Buffy will be a while yet. She has just burned down her gym and been sent to the asylum at this point. Giles, however, will be there waiting her as the new watcher.

As for what robes he'll wear, right now he's wearing a red hoodie, a white shirt and black pants, so he's got everything going on. It will be a struggle, but I'm not giving any more hints as to what's really happening on that front.

I'm not sure if I want Willow to become witchy or not. I've got a good bit written, but it's not finished by any means. She will express some Tika-esque traits on occasion, like the ability to do minor illusionist/sleight of hand tricks (like Tika's father did), serve drinks like a champion, brew drinks like a dabbler (Tika had to have picked up a few things from Otik on the brewing side of things) as well as shield bashing and the frying pan weapon proficiency. It would be cool to have her master a bit of Captain America style shield fighting, but that's not a sure bet.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "There's no such thing as Hourglass Eyes" from QOShea
Review:
"He's got magic
magic in his eyes

Magic in his smile on his lips
in his fingertips.
He can conjure a magic tale
turn a goldfish into a whale."

Borrowed without permission from Mc Fox.

It felt appropriate!

I can see that to a degree.

A well written insertion of some rarely used characters.

Thanks. It's not done yet. I've got other rarely used characters coming up.

Review of chapter "Timely Eyes" from Gaelyn
Review:
Darn you to heck for the timing of the end of your chapter. I'm intrigued with where you're going with this and look forward to this (and your other stories) to be updated.
Comments from author:
There will be more updates hopefully this week. I'm going to work on them now, since I actually have a day off. As for the story, It's branching out from what I've been writing, so I think it will be fun, if filled with angst. Though I do intend angst to be justified.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Timely Eyes" from annararen
Review:
Holly...!

Xander as Raistlin! WoW! Just.. WoW!
It's been a long time since I've been so happy after reading a story.

Lake of Tears - Raistlin and the Rose was playing while I was reading it :)

I for one can't wait to read more of this!

Thank you for writing and sharing!
Comments from author:
Thanks for the music suggestion. I'll have to look into them more.

I really wanted to do something different than just your average Xander-gets-superpowers story, so I though I'd mix it up a bit. So I figured, if I'm going to give him superpowers, I had to take something away. Raistlin fit perfectly.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Timely Eyes" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
In an answer to an earlier review, you mentioned that a side effect of his curse-sight is that reflected it is True Sight. If that's the case, would rigging up "thick glasses" that actually reflect light twice before it reaches his eyes basically act as *Glasses of True Seeing* for Xander?
Comments from author:
No, I don't think so. That seems like too much of a cop out. Or maybe it could, and he just wouldn't realize it. I'll have to think about it.

And there's a lot more to Glasses of True Seeing than just not seeing corpses. Those are major magic items. If I recall, True Seeing is like a 5th level priest spell or there abouts. I can't remember if it's on the Magic User list. That's a tough one to enchant. I'll have to see about that.

Come to think of it, I don't know if Raistlin ever got to try Tass' Glasses of True Seeing in the books. I'll have to read Winter Night again. I don't think he did.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Timely Eyes" from jormunguard
Review:
Interesting start to the story. I do have two questions though that I'm a little confused about.
1. The mages of Krynn gain their magic from their alignment moon. Since the red moon doesn't exist how would Xander have any magic at all? Its not a big problem but it might need to be explained.

2. If Jesse dressed as Caramon to get Cordy's attention why would he dress Willow as that character's wife? Wouldn't it have made a little more sense to have him dress her as one of the other female characters, maybe like Caramon and Raistlins half-sister Kitiara?

EDIT: It wasn't Cordy knowing that I was questioning it was more along the lines of what was Jesse thinking. You have to question a persons thinking when he dresses one of his friends as his characters wife when he's trying to hook up with someone else. Also I just used Kitiara as an example, it could have also been Laurana or some other female character. I just question him choosing his chacters wife as her costume.
Comments from author:
1. That will be explained. There were also some big hints in the first section. I could look up in my Spelljammer books about the actual rules on this, or I could just fudge it.

2. This is more because both Tika and Willow have bright red hair, though Tika's tends to have more volume. And the chances of early series Cordy knowing about DragonLance are slim to nil. Unless Jesse actually TELLS Cordy that, it won't be an issue. And there is the fact that he didn't think it through.

Also, Willow as Kitiara scares me. Not going to lie.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
