Review of chapter "Episode 11: Helpless, not Hopeless" from aeraveil
Review:
Buffy needs to be taken down a peg or two as well and given a reality check. She might be the slayer, but the reason why she's still alive is the fact that she has support and friends. Another big reason is the fact that Xander keeps on throwing monkey wrenches into the PTB's plans. Howsomever, she can't know the last part yet. Still, she needs a smack on the behind.
Comments from author:
Its not as if Buffy has perfectly reasonable reasons for her behavior. And she fully grasps that her friends help is critical.

This is not a Buffy-bash fic. There will be no Buffy-bashing. Don't expect it, and don't read it as coming.

Review of chapter "Episode 11: Helpless, not Hopeless" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Review:
"No, course not. There's still the rest of BtVS season 3 to get through,."

Cool. Hey, legit question. It *could* have been the end of "Iron Coin season 1" and the beginning of "Iron Coin season 2". ;)

And hey, as long as Kralik was obliging enough to fall for the same trick here, then - no need to reinvent the wheel. It's as good a way of disposing of him as any.

I am glad to see Travers taken down a peg here. In a lot of ways, that's a bigger diversion from canon than a novel way of killing Kralik would have been. With him taken down a notch politically in the Council, and Giles not fired, then potentially this could pay off in even larger dividends farther down the line.

And it means that Faith most likely won't be subjected to that idiotic test.
Comments from author:
It is a legitimate question, yes,

And as for Faith, yes, she's protected from being Cruciomental'd, yes. With the whole Tento stricken from Council policy, and Giles still in place, the real drift is starting to pick up. So far, the major drift points have been no Fluke, Spike sticking around and No Rat-Amy, but the impacts of those on the verse have yet to be really felt thus far. With no fired Giles...

Review of chapter "Episode 11: Helpless, not Hopeless" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Review:
Coolness. ;)

I'm a bit confused though: given what you said in email, does this mean this is the end of season 1?

Otherwise, good chapter. So - I take it that Buffy defeated Kralik the way she did in canon, without the need for Angel's intervention?
Comments from author:
It didn't happen in exactly the same way, but she did end up accomplishing the same end.

No, course not. There's still the rest of BtVS season 3 to get through,.

Review of chapter "Episode 11: Helpless, not Hopeless" from TTrunks
Review:
Sorry to double review you, but I thought of another question as I hit send. Why doesn't Xander lie? Say Janus decided to send him visions or something? That would give the gang something to believe.

Why would Janus send him visions?

Review of chapter "Episode 11: Helpless, not Hopeless" from TTrunks
Review:
Please have Buffy respect Xander a bit more now. I always wondered how after this he could say he was weak, when she killed a master vampire. I kind of wish you'd have had Giles admit at least some of Xander's involvement with the Cruci, it seems like that's going to get worse before it gets better.

Review of chapter "Episode 10: How To Conduct A Witch Hunt" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Review:
Cool. An Iron Coin update. ;)

I liked the movie quote game, and also how Cordelia played seamlessly off of Xander's thoughts.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked the interplay. Took a while on that bit, to get it just right.

Review of chapter "Episode 10: How To Conduct A Witch Hunt" from Hyperion
Review:
Nice to see this continuing, and it's developing into a wonderful storyline.

I'm liking how Xander's actions and the different actions of everyone else seems to be keeping Faith more connected and involved with the Scoobies, hopefully this can keep her from ending up as a pawn of the Mayor, and keep her out of a coma and spending several years in jail.

It's also nice to see that events have went in a direction where Amy Madison isn't going to be stuck as a rat for several years. After this recent incident with the witch hunt, it would be a nice and probably smart thing if Amy where to be involved more with everyone else. Having a second powerful witch in support of or depending on the situation instead of Willow would be great, and if Amy is included directly in some of the activities the Scoobies are involved in, it might keep her from heading down the dark path she seemed to be heading towards in canon by season 7.

Edit: Also, if you need more time for Real Life events/issues, take it. I like the story and look forward to more, but don't burn yourself out. I'd rather go the extra week or two between updates knowing something good is coming as opposed to chapter after chapter being posted to the point that you decide you don't have it in you and burning yourself out.

Review:
Fraken Hell this story is so bloody awesome ... so hoping for more soon!
Comments from author:
Thanks for review! I'm glad you liked it. And yes, more is coming, albeit for a given value of 'soon', as I have a busy RL to look forward to. Ideally by the end of September, you'll have more. :)

Review of chapter "Episode 9: Meeting the New Boss" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
Review:
Good that he is starting to see that the coin isn't a panacea. It shows what fate has planned but if he or anything else interferes then the coin can't share the changes unless he asks again I would guess.

Great chapter!

Tom.
Comments from author:
Fate doesn't plan everything - like the Jester said, in ICJ, its like writing parts of a book, but letting the rest write itself.
