Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Gideon
Fantastic! The Doctor's little magical mystery tour through Slayer history seems to have solved the mystery of the Slayer, at least for him. It kinda sounds like the Shadow men tapped a Time Lord for their Slayer essence, and now it has to die, again and again and again. But if that is the case, then why doesn't Faith feel it too? Why does Buffy feel that loneliness and the song of the universe, but Faith does not? And did Faith see Angel? Cause that could be bad too.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Sinangeled
Wow! This story is incredibly original and I am enjoying it very much. Buffy and the Doctor are done very well. And Angel. I miss Angel (the Buffy version, the other guy with his own series mostly pissed me off).

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from PATM
Oh good, Buffy wants to kill the doctor. Then it gets better. This twist that happens before this story starts is real interestin', is this Slayer essence a scam? Lots more to learn and I await more.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Gideon
Vampires in general seem very well informed about Time Lords. I wonder what Angel knows that even most vampires do not? Buffy may be struggling to find her feet but she will still struggle to do her duty, even if she hates it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Gideon
Hmm, Buffy sounds a little confused. I shudder to think of what Xander , Willow and Giles will be doing to 'unbewitch' her from the magic voice. I wonder what the Doctor will have to say to Faith when they meet? And who or what is that invisible presence?
One thing that struck me as out of place though was that Buffy says in this chapter that the Doctor has a soul but during the fight she was sure he did not have a soul - when did she change her mind any why?

Did I mention I like you as a reader? Because I do.

My thoughts on the subject: have you ever said something, and then, when you reflected on it later, thought that maybe you'd said it a bit hastily? I think it's the reflection that's convinced her. I think it's something she's come to think, over the course of the day.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Let me get this straight - he believes the moral choice is for her to *let* the vampires go around killing all the humans they want, and that killing them to stop that (absolutely inevitable) behavior is wrong?! Wow, did he crossover with the wrong show...

There was a reason I stopped watching the latest Dr. Who series. Hey, Doc - pacifism is *not* a survival trait. And if the aliens who show up want to kill/eat/enslave you, then yes, it *does* make them the bad guys, and yes, you *should* shoot them. Just, gah...
Comments from author:
Tee hee! Yeah, well, that's what happens when you shove the Doctor in with Buffy. It's useful for me, because it means that I can have him go back in time and face the same villains as Buffy, with no problem. Because he just locks them up, without killing them, and they escape! It's really useful for authors. Probably not so useful for the characters...

The Doctor does have a reason behind his madness. If he thought that vampires were just Daleks, I'm sure he'd kill them without a second thought. But in the Buffyverse, that's not what vampires really are. They do have emotions, even if they're the wrong ones. And I'd go on, but I don't want to give things away.

In the novel, Vampire Science, the Eighth Doctor really does believe he can get the vampires to see that killing people is wrong. He is constantly floored that even the vampires who agree to help him can't understand that convincing someone to commit suicide is a bad thing. That's how I think the Doctor sees it -- that if he can convince the vampires to not kill people, then he won't have to destroy them. But if he can't, then he'll kill them en masse. He's not always that forgiving a person.

The conversation with Buffy is a little more impassioned than it needs to be for a completely different reason all together.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Gideon
Great story. I love it! That snarky book has a serious perspective bias doesn't it?All evil doctor this and killed ten billion people that. It almost seems like the book was written for the express purpose of getting Buffy to kill him. I wonder if they will catch the small detail that it wasn't Elizabeth Summers that met the Doctor. It was Buffy Summers.
Comments from author:
Oooh, you're quite good. Go you! Yes, the book does have a perspective bias. And I played around with the idea that the book was snarky for a reason, but in the end, it's just snarky because I'm sort of snarky. Your deductions about the purpose of the book are very insightful. I like the way you read, Gideon. Please keep reading, so that I can see whether my readers are picking up on the details I'm dropping or not. :-D

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from MarcusRowland
Interesting - does he mean that Buffy is some sort of clone of Elizabeth?
Comments from author:
Not exactly. Elizabeth is the same person as Buffy, but from another Timeline. In Elizabeth's timeline, she was not a Slayer. However, she still went to Hemery High, the gym still burned down, and she still wound up living in Sunnydale. But instead of having vampires in the gym, she had Daleks. And instead of becoming the Slayer, she met the Doctor. She's still just as super-awesome as Buffy, though. At least, in my imagination she is. You'll have to decide for yourself.

You'll find out more about Elizabeth as you keep reading.

I'm sorry if this wasn't clear in the story. I'm trying to do a literary technique where I don't actually say things outright, but imply them instead. But it's surprisingly difficult with English Doctor Who characters, who never say anything useful. Hopefully I'll get better at it, though!

Thanks for the comment!
