Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from kittenpoker
Review:
Glad you survived the holidays! And Happy Belated Birthday!! It's always great to read another chapter of this story- I was just wondering yesterday about a new chapter, and then here it was! I've only got one little nitpicky thing, and I know you research your stories Extensively so I am hoping you wont mind me pointing it Out. I've ridden horses since before I could walk, and I'm pretty sure it's a general thing, not just my family, but usually you mount from the left side of a horse- you tack up, stick your left leg in the stirrup, and pretty much fling yourself into the saddle - pulling can loosen or off balance the saddle. I'm pretty sure you're going for a western style ranch, not English riding, but if I'm wrong please ignore me! :) riding a horse is one of the best ways to get your head on straight- especially on a large ranch with little to no other people. Hopefully it can help. As always, it was a treat and I can't wait for the next installment!
Comments from author:
thanks for the review and the saddle thing is all me. I ride but I'm a leftie and stupidly didn't think about the fact that I mount differently than most. Especially since I have my own custom saddle.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Loved the wonderful FAMILY feel of that 4th of July surf and grill outing on Tony's private beach, even if neither Pepper nor Happy are related to each other or to Buffy by blood (but then, families of choice and circumstance have always figured prominently in the Buffyverse, at least as much as families of blood)..

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from purrfus
Review:
Keeping busy enough not to think and wear out the slayer energy doesn't really leave much time lift for other things so far anyway. Nice to see her a little enthused about something - good balance with the grief.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from thewrongalice
Review:
Oh yay - love the update! And I like the OC - a friend with empathy, not a replacement for Willow or Xander but as well as ('cause both Willow and Xander struck me as a little bit not quite there yet with the empathy - and maybe a bit needy, although that could be my interpretation). Is Tony going to be kidnapped for the whole three months? Or come back sooner? What can I say, I'm really looking forward to see how you write those first few scenes of interaction! Glad Pepper's learning to surf, although is it strange that I miss JARVIS when he's not in a chapter?

Review:
Woo Hoo... great to see a new chapter!

Uh... Methinks Buffy's gonna have words with Declan... strong words (as Mal Reynolds would put it). :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from Gideon
Review:
I hope Buffy doesn't hurt the horse! At least the advice from that guy is from someone who has been there. Well, lost a parent anyway, not that other stuff. It doesn't sound like Buffy believes him now but perhaps she will in time. What is she going to make Pepper do next though? It doesn't sound like surfing will suddenly be one of her favorite activities :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
I love the way you balance humor with the more serious parts. Reading about Pepper's attempts at surfing was fun, as was hearing about the aftermath of sunburn and sore muscles.

Then riding lessons and Buffy and Declan connecting over lost parents. It might not be the same, as it doesn't sound like Declan went a little nuts, but it was probably good for Buffy to hear that someone else shut down after losing his mother.

Anyway, with all the fire analogies, I'd add another. Buffy exploded on Angelus and burned out. It took time to find the embers left. You can't just toss a log on and expect it to catch, you have to start with kindling and small things that will catch until it gets strong enough for larger fuel. Same thing Pepper did with Buffy: Start with small things that caught her attention and gradually draw her into more.

It was good to see Buffy laughing at the start of the chapter and later talking to someone other than Pepper, Jarvis and Happy.

Edit: One little thing I'd missed on the first time I read the chapter. You have Buffy mounting the horse from the right side. Most of the time, mounting is done from the left side.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from (Recent Donor)ConstanceTruggle
Review:
So very slowly getting closer to Tony coming home. Can't wait for that chapter. And since she thought about the non-disclosure forms so often, I hope he really did sign them and will stick with them. And learning about what she did... I hope you share more of those details with us. Thanks for the update!

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from NeverTooOld
Review:
Glad to see you back again. A short chapter, but its nice to see Buffy learning new things, and Pepper keeping up her end as well.

Declan was right...it really never becomes 'okay' but you do learn that you can still live with the loss and the pain. Unfortunately, Buffy also has to deal with the reality of snapping and paying back Angelus, Spike and Drusilla pain for pain. And as bad as it is for her, I suspect it is worse for the 3 of them, since they failed epically, and the lower powers will probably take it out on them for a very long time.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from AllenPitt
Review:
and next she learns why horses are not like airplanes. You can slap a plane and it won't react. ... meanwhile, Tony S when he returns is going to be totally floored to hear about her. I can only imagine how much. He might have to grow up or something.
