Review of chapter "Chapter Three: First Blood" from eset
Review:
Another great chapter. I'm guessing Colin isn't involved with the Shadow men, or whoever they are nowadays, but just got some friends together and decided a gun was the best option. Though I do wonder if he'd have ever gotten up the courage to do something other than follow her if she hadn't forced his hand.

I did love Dick's reaction to Liz figuring them out. Leave it to Dick to see and say the obvious when Tim's still over-thinking.

Keep up the good work--I look forward to more.
Comments from author:
Thanks! More will be revealed in the next chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three: First Blood" from Gideon
Review:
If Joyce is upset then Buffy must have been shot quite badly, if it was just a flesh wound then she would already be out of danger with Slayer healing. I hope she is well enough to survive her kidnapping in a few days :) I hope she at least took out Colin and whoever the other attacker was, they really don't need to be distracted by amateurs at this stage.
The council really are very ruthless this time around aren't they? Repeated ritualistic murders would be hard to justify if they even pretend to exist to protect the innocent. Maybe they have just admitted they are just in it for the power in this universe. If Buffy does join the batclan she should pretend to be Dick's partner not Red Robin's so as to reduce her apparent connection to the "shield". I don't know what her code name should be though. Is Huntress taken yet?
Comments from author:
Very good points! Sadly, Huntress is taken, but I have a few ideas for a code name…

Review of chapter "Chapter Three: First Blood" from (Recent Donor)ConstanceTruggle
Review:
Another wonderful update! Really looking forward to seeing what's going to happen next! Thanks for sharing!

Okay. I love that you are having them talk about bringing her in as Mascot Boy's sidekick (Would she be Wendy???), and that Dick (and even Damian!) are behind Tim no matter what he decides. Also that she left so many clues for Tim to figure out that she knew his secret. Also, the UST comment about Tim and Damian was hilarious. I was wondering, though. If they are looking for control of the slayer line, then are there demons? Do they just avoid Gotham due to the Caped Crusader and Co? WHY do they want control of the line? When does Buffy hear (overhear?) the term Shadow Men? One slip to her and they'd know more than what they do now.

Tim is good for her, relationship-wise. But wouldn't she balk at dating another colleague? (After all she's been through, I would were I her.) Is the Cynical Bat going to ever lighten up?

How do they find out if you're META or not? (Not that knowledgeable this far into the series, sorry to say.) Is it just emerging powers or is there a DNA marker? Because I could see Bats testing her blood, and being told she's not META. And for Buffy to be angry that he was angry with her for not telling him and saying something like: "You didn't listen when I tried to tell you I'm mystical, not meta. You treated me like some child who was too stupid to know better than to gainsay her betters (appropriately Buffy-ized, of course. I'm tired.) and that I obviously didn't know what I was talking about." Or something. it sounded better in my head when I had a whole backstory on just that one itty bitty scene worked out.

CT.

I’m glad you are enjoying the story so far. Excellent questions! Some of the questions I can answer here, but others I won’t simply because of spoilers. :) Thank you for asking them anyways, because it really did get my mind spinning over the different angles.

To answer your question about demons in the story, partly anyways, in the cannon DC world there are demons. A prime example is Raven’s father and then there was another demon that was revealed in a Teen Titans issue. From what I can tell they are very rare in that world. But in my story there will be a backstory dealing with the demons that will tie into that with the slayer line. If I’m planning this correctly you should get more on this in chapter five and six.

As for why they want to control the slayer line? That little fact should be revealed in chapter five. :) Thanks for asking that question, btw, it made me focus on the why. I always had a vague reason and I finally sat down and fully thought it out.

As for Buffy balking at dating another colleague…. You make an interesting point. I wouldn’t blame her if she did, but I don’t see Buffy giving up on finding love. The TV show is a prime example. After Angel, there was Parker. Despite what Parker did, she still gave Riley a chance and eventually Spike. Is she scared? Probably, but Tim has passed a couple obstacles. That helps. Is she going to be caution about how she goes about this relationship? Most certainly.

Will the Bat ever lighten up? Can I get back to you on that one? :)

About finding out whether you are META or not… When I started this story I wasn’t completely positive myself. I asked my sister who is more knowledgeable about the DC world and her reply was it depended on the writer. With that in mind, I’m decided to have it where it was a DNA marker.

Cute scene! I could completely see that little scenario playing out.

Thanks again for the review! It helped out a lot!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three: First Blood" from AllenPitt
Review:
Collin really is messed up. But it's types like that, that can do a lot of damage. She should have taken it more seriously. So..he hired somebody, or found somebody else the Joker had hurt? And plans to get away with it, how? Odds are he'll get a cell next to the Joker's.
Anyway--hopefully slayer healing will kick in. And wow, I can only imagine the differences in the timeline that led to this group of assassins instead of council/slayer.
Comments from author:
Very true. As for getting away with it...mmm... time will tell. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two: The Date" from soulNchantress
Review:
Still reading this series! I didn't review the first chapter because I had just left one for the last chapter of Hidden Joke...sorry, sometimes I'm just strapped for time.

I love how you are giving them real relationship worries, plus secrets. It would be refreshing to have a story where people don't ignore real problems and truths and fall right into bed. It's a little one sided at the moment with Buffy knowing Tim's secrets, but him being totally in the dark. I hope she can give him more of her truths. She deserves a relationship where things aren't decided for her and she can be open about herself. She doesn't have to be Tim's savior/hero, and she can be a willing 50/50 partner like things should have been in her previous relationships. Kudos! I really like how you are going about this.

This story is really entertaining. So many questions to be answered. Are there, or are there not vampires in this world. If not, how do these assassins know about the Chosen or the Shadowmen? Are they talking about the same people from Buffy's old world? I would lean more toward 'Yes' because all of the girls taken were budding Metas. Please, don't answer any of my questions. I'd rather find out by reading the story. I just wanted to let you know what was on my mind. lol

You are weaving another gripping story. I already have this one on my track list. I'll be watching my inbox for another update. I love your stories!
Comments from author:
Thank you! I’m glad you are enjoying the story so far! I know the feeling. Some days it just doesn’t feel like there is enough time to get everything done. :)

I really do love this type of review though! It helps a lot to hear other people thoughts and questions. More often than not new ideas are spark from them. Even if the ideas don’t make appearance in the current story they often show up in later stories. :)

I’m glad you like how I’m handling their relationship and I completely agree with your points on her previous relationship!

The new chapter should be coming soon! I’m thinking by the weekend.

Again, thank you for the review!

Review:
Words can not express how good you story is. Its just...... ugh.... exquisite. I love how Liz/Buffy finally told Tim about her. I wonder what Batman will think about the her "background" now. Do you plan on having Liz meet Bruce ever?(forgot if they did in the previous *going to reread*)
Comments from author:
Thank you! I’m glad you are enjoying the story! Bruce hasn’t met Elizabeth yet but I promise that they will before the end. ;)
