Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from Amberdrake
Review:
"Spike threw the rolled-up newspaper and caught Angelus right in the hairgel. GOOOOOAALL! “Page seventeen. Rare find being examined in Sunnydale museum. Duh.”"

LMAO!! I think I'm O.D.ing on your works as I've also finally gotten around to the Whatley-verse.

Imagine what the show would have been like if Spike had been the Vampire With A Soul(tm) and Angelus showed up with Dru. Because I'm pretty sure the combination of Spike, Xander , and Cordelia would create a perfect storm of snark that would have driven Captain Hairgel bonkers.

Response response: Well Evil Spike is way cooler than Not-so-evil Spike. But the trade off is no Xander-Spike team-up to take on the Broodmeister. And when that ep of Angel ran I had both the East and West Coast feeds off the dish so I got to watch it twice. :) That was television gold.
Comments from author:
I loved Spike so much more as a villain. My fave is still his first appearance on 'Angel' when he stands on a rooftop making fun of Angel's rescue of a girl. That was so funny I could hardly breathe.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from DieselDriver
Review:
I'm going to have to read this over intro to end, when it's done. You're doing 3 projects that I know of, there's a couple of others that are nearly as good as you are that I follow and one I'm reading over because it's so good that I actually thought you wrote it till I checked. Unfortunately I don't think he's ever going to finish it. Bummer. I like the Alex stuff best then cross something?... Updates on this are far enough apart that I lose track. You must know I have a very poor memory by now... Probably alzheimer's since my dad has it too. If so, I can look forward to reading a lot of old books again for the first time in my future. Bleh.
Comments from author:
If everyone had a memory like me... well, the world would be a very, very strange place. And I wouldn't win at Trivial Pursuit. :D

What you said about Alzheimer's reminds me. Years ago, there was an article in "The Journal of Irreproducible Results" on the inheritance pattern of death. They concluded it was autosomal recessive. :D And if your family has a history of death, you have a 1-in-4 chance of communicating the trait to your kids. So pick a spouse who doesn't have a history of death in his/her family, and most importantly, don't pick a spouse who has already expressed the gene. (Buffy would benefit from this advice, don't you think?)

Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
Well, darn. I guess the Scoobies got a bit more lead time on this one than in canon, at least.

EDIT: Yes, but the remaining 3 members of the Scourge of Europe are out of town, aren't they? The time for them to drive back must give the Scoobies at least another day before they're back on the scene.
Comments from author:
Actually, they didn't. This is the same amount of leadtime they got in canon, and for the same reason: Giles was consulted by the museum.

How is a museum curator not noticing that the top expert for a thousand miles is a high school librarian? That makes a sense that is... not.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Dramatic with some nice character insights.
Comments from author:
Thanks. This story is really more about character evolution than flying fists. But you'll note I skip over the episodes that don't advance *my* plotlines.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from Riniko
Review:
I always wondered what was wrong with them trying to end the world or bring some greater demon into the world when that would end them or drop them way down the ranking. Oh, those wacky vampires, with their Great Old Ones. Someday they will realize that they were better off not listening to Dru.
Spike's inter voice was great and I really liked the bit about Willow using PowerPoint presentations to show how Xander is a good catch, why did I never think of that.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Spike is utterly logical about it. "I don't want to destroy the world! It's where I keep all my stuff!" (My apologies to George Carlin.)

Review of chapter "I Only Have Eyes, part III" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I like that you are being real on all sides that they really would like to use the music "room." It appears that Giles will do his duty as a chaperone, but also seems like Buffy supports her two friends getting together with the 'horizontal mambo.'
Comments from author:
Giles is trying his hardest to be Mister Stuffy. Or maybe even Sir Stuffy. He really does regret his past, even if he's not happy about everything in his future. This Giles just has no idea how lucky he is that Jenny is alive.

Review of chapter "I Only Have Eyes, part II" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Good cliffhanger and nice characterization (I'm catching up). This story is harder to read just a little bit every few weeks because so many people have written in this time period. I really want to be following *your* continuity for this.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you're reading along. Sometimes it's a problem when you read several stories and find the characterizations sort of bleeding together at the edges like wet newspaper.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from Senko
Review:
An obelix is also a large menhir carved who's touchy about his weight and Asterix is his friend grin. I see Angel hasn't learned his lesson about listening to Drusilla, still a shame about Oz and hey my mother didn't think anything about the burn marks on my brothers shirt when he blacked out the neighbourhood when a kid

The bit with the computer reminds me of a short on this sight where during Halloween someone puts a devil tail and horns from Ethans on the library computer.
Comments from author:
Ahh, Asterix. I took more than enough French to read some of them, but you can't really translate a lot of that kind of humor into other languages and still have them be as hiliarious.

I've seen plenty of junk on kid clothes, but you can't miss some stains. Blood? That stands out. How is Joyce not noticing? Is Buffy doing all the laundry these days?

Review of chapter "Becoming, part I" from Traszgo
Review:
GOOOOAAALLL! I lol'd

Your Spike inner monologue really captures his personality. And your Dru crazygrams are most excellent.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I try and write Dru so that *everything* she says is meaningful, just difficult to interpret.

Review of chapter "I Only Have Eyes, part III" from DieselDriver
Review:
I had to leave in what could only be described as a self made cliffhanger. I was reading while waiting for my friend to show up so I could drive out of state to look at houses where I intend to move. Long drive had to leave. HAD to leave. I was going crazy waiting to see if she shot him or not. Got home so tired I crashed and burned into sleep last night. First thing this morning though, before even having a sip of my life giving, caffeinated beverage was to finish this chapter. Aaaawww. It was beautiful. The two ghosts finally united forever after, or at least till someone sucks their souls back for some evil purpose. I'd like to see Xander alternate physically between "Xander" and "Xena" for awhile, just to confuse the issue.

Edit to your reply: Gah, I would have already but I ran out and I've already deleted some that I recommended before. I'll try to remember next month when I can do another one.

And Hell yes I know who I'm talking to. I know you can do it. And in the most confusing way possible. I just wish I could fund a new Whately site for you guys.
Comments from author:
1. Personal life is far more important than net-life. Do that drive! Only safely.
2. I hope you found someplace nice that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and a spleen.
3. I'm glad you liked the chapter. Toss me a recommendation or more reviews if you feel like it.
4. And you're asking for some more gender confusion and problems? You do realize who you're talking to, right? :-)

Review of chapter "I Only Have Eyes, part III" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
And another outfit bites the mud... But at least they got them and Willow and Xander seem to be on a slightly more even keel.

And I wonder what the Mayor got out of the Suicide Ghosts.

Thanks for writing



Well, I've seen many different explanations, from her drinking problem, to downright refusal to see, to Buffy insisting on doing her own laundry.
Comments from author:
How on earth did Joyce not notice what was happening to Buffy's clothes on a regular basis? Okay, maybe she can't grok that a vampire nearly drained her in her own *kitchen*. But laundry? Please. I can tell when my teenager wipes his mouth on his shirtsleeve.

Review of chapter "I Only Have Eyes, part III" from grd
Review:
Whew. Had me worried too. Love the last second action.
Comments from author:
Well, you should be worried. I'm evil. And I'm sticking my fingers in the domain of the king of evil abuse to his protagonists, The Joss.
