Review of chapter "Impeccable Patterned Deployment" from mendenbar
Review:
Still confused, still fascinated, still enthralled. Sigh. It's so "still" here.

Review of chapter "Impeccable Patterned Deployment" from zombielord
Review:
really liked this chapter was really surprised with Wesley being the voice i thought it was some one totally else interested to see where your going to take the story with Willow and Xander considering what happened to both in this chapter should be very interesting. Willow in that accident while two beings talk about her and Xander getting severally tortured by Dru and feeling the Underworld should leave a couple of interesting maternal scars. Any way looking forward to more.

Yeah, I don't think anyone saw that one coming.

Review of chapter "Exalted" from (Current Donor)thetwitmachine
Review:
I don't know anything about the Exalted mythos. I was with you until the sudden fated love between Angel and Buffy. I'm not against that relationship, but the "fated" portion of it bugs me, and is my chief complaint of bad books and bad fanfiction.

It might even be part of the fiction mythos - I don't know. I just don't care for it and it bugs me when it happens.
Comments from author:
Lunar and Solar Mates are fated in the sense that they're a perfect match for each other, and it hurts to defy such a potent link between their souls. This doesn't mean that they *choose* to defy it. And the suddenness is intentional. The Bond between them is forcing a potentially unwise course of action. Buffy lacks the Temperance (An Exalted Virtue, it represents the Exalts ability to deny or delay gratification) to defy the Bond, and Angel...he's got serious problems. As you saw from his flashbacks, Buffy's First Age past life was not most ideal partner towards the end, and there are other, unknown factors at work.

So, it isn't that they are destined to be with each other, it's that God decided they should date, and made them compatible, and made it painful to avoid each other once they meet. The Future is still unwritten, and the Celestial Exalted, alone among all beings, have the right to say, "Yeah, fuck that," to what the Gods decide.

I hope this makes more sense, and if you're worried about this going the cliche path of true love conquering all: Don't. I have NO intention of making this a Twilight love story. Their relationship will be brutal, hard, and even downright traumatic. They'll fight, they'll scream, and they'll hate each other until it makes them quiver, but they will NEVER be cliche, so far as I can avoid it.

Review of chapter "Husband Seducing Demon Dance" from zombielord
Review:
anther very compelling chapter loved the conversation between Buffy and her shadow self. As for the confrontation between Angel and Giles liked the under tone there of how Giles was manipulating Buffy just like watcher do to most slayers. As for Xander well this is what's expected to happen to mortals who are around exalted having played exalted I know only three things will happen to him now torturer, becoming a bound ghosts or being chosen by a death lord to be exalted none of them a good thing
Comments from author:
Or any number of other things could happen, because a Solar Exalted is involved.

Review of chapter "Heart Compelling Method" from brokenmimir
Review:
Good chapter -- this is reminding me a little of EarnestScribbler's Buff the Magic... um, yeah..., which is one of my favorite stories, so that is no bad thing. Keep up the good work, and I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes!

EDIT: Both stories take Buffy's arrival in season 1 and fundamentally alter everything with the crossover. In that story, Buffy has power because she is half dragon, rather than a slayer, Willow gets a different style of magic, etc. Your story, people have power from being Exalted. They both use the crossover primarily for its setting elements, rather than its characters, and present a different yet similar variation on the core cast. Buffy is extremely different from canon Buffy in both, but fundamentally, she's still Buffy. It's a different kind of crossover, and I like it quite a bit.
Comments from author:
How so?


EDIT: Oh, cool. I'm happy to hear that!

Review of chapter "Omake: Bathtime" from mendenbar
Review:
I don't know what that was, I don't understand it, and I sure don't see what it has to do with the rest of the story, BUT it was freakin' hysterical! The visual images in my mind may cause me to break out in unexplained giggles for the rest of the week! (Unclean, unclean!)
Comments from author:
It has nothing at all to do with anything. It was the project of me and my friend who helps me with this story making up ridiculous stuff for the Halloween episode (Xander in Buffy's princess costume, for instance), and ended with me talking about Angel Limit Breaking and trying to bathe Spike, when Buffy walks in, and it just sorta snow-balled from there...:)
