Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part IV" from Riniko
Review:
Oh, the two week wait was so painful, but the story is so good. Why do you punish me so? Xandra was playing it smart with the minions, but she does not have the experience or power to handle more than a few as yet. And it looks like she will need to take some time off to recover herself, while she is doing this maybe she can look into some form of armor to help protect herself or other defensive/attack options. The javelin would be good, but it is not something that can be hidden while traveling and is likely not going to hit the heart easily from a distance. Maybe an item that flares out when it hits, so that it can't just be pulled out without causing more damage. I will be eagerly awaiting the next chapter to this excellent story.

Why do I torture my readers? That would be because I'm an evil, evil author. I aspire to Joss Whedon levels of evil, but i haven't gotten there yet. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from Tabercil
Review:
Okay, you've gotten this story to a VERY interesting point. Waiting two weeks for the next chapter to come is going to be a interminable torment...

As for Cordy, she's sounds about right - seems to echo Ironbear's characterization of her. Not that that's a bad thing as it's one of my favorite spins on her, with Cordyfan's being THE favorite.
Comments from author:
Cordyfan has given Cordy a different motivation/ability to evolve into a better person, while Ironbear has given her Xander (usually) as a 'softening agent'. We're all trying to change her from her season-1-early-episodes personality in one way or another.

Nice new chapter, keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Thanks! The summer arc may be a bit longer than most of the other story arcs.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from Senko
Review:
I'm a little surprised Xander couldn't break those ropes considering how strong she is especially as she was probably tied up like a normal girl not a slayer. Still wondering if Ares is around/going to take an interest and on that note I'd rather like to see Xendra attracted to a boy (or s god who knows how to push all Xenas buttons). Not long term just enough to teach her even if you know something is a bad idea your heart can be hard to ignore. Vamp willow from that alternate dimension could also work for this.

Amusing that Cordelia views the workout clothes as more of a fashion statement than actual workout clothes. Hopefully her opinion of Willow will change a bit after seeing just how smart she is. I also rather liked the counter insult of enough backhand to serve at Wimbledon
Comments from author:
Breaking ropes while tied in a chair takes leverage, which Xendra just didn't have.

Cordelia does have her own world-view (as I see her). It makes her more interesting to write than just another rich b**ch with affluenza.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from Ephemeral
Review:
WILLOW ROSENBURG MANAGED TO BUILD IT IN A CAVE! WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS!

Huh, has anyone written that crossover?
Comments from author:
Probably. I know there's more than one IronXan crossover story and at least one IronBuffy crossover that are YAHF, but I have not yet seen a straight Willow-builds-an-exoskeleton-to-rescue-herself tale.

It's probably out there. I can see a couple possibilities.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from Riniko
Review:
Love the story so far, Cordelia may have one of the better survival traits of all the Soobies. She helps out partly because helping increases her own survival by killing the vamps off. That aside, she does do more than most credit her with. And yes, I bet she does know every clothing/shoe store in the region. Xandra has one other advantage on most vamps, surprise, as I bet they don't believe that the average woman is that fast or strong. Wonder what would happen if she did get called by the Slayer Spirit?

Edit addition: Exactly, when has Xander ever had it easy. Not that I think that will happen here, but there may well be vamps that think Xandra is the new Slayer.
Comments from author:
Well, if Xendra Giles got the Slayer spirit, that would be a bit complicated for Xander, don't you think?

Good chapter - I love the insight into Cordelia, Giles and Xander's outlook.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Cordelia is complicated to write.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from raxadian
Review:
Not even Xander luck is that bad for facing a Master vampire during the summer, right?
Comments from author:
I mean, what's the worst that can happen?

Oops, I didn't mean to say that out loud. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
Not the smartest thing (s)he ever did, but probably the only thing. And at least well prepared. Wouldn't Council members know Xendra? Or at least call about it? Or has Giles made a deal with his brother?

And how the heck did a British lady get named Xendra? ;-)

Thanks for writing
Comments from author:
As you will see in a few chapters, some Council members *do* know Xendra. A little.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from Vianca
Review:
Xendra might want to visit a sex-shop for some leather clothing & underclothing.
Why?
Make-shift body armor.

Say, that book demon happend already, right?
If so, raid it for parts.
Think power armor.
Get the geeks together for some heavy duty tinkering.
Anyway to prevent fangs from ripping your flesh open.

Too bad that it won't be easy to get clothing from a sex-shop (S&M) blest(?) by some priest.
Xendra might also want to look in the profesional outback backpacker/farmer/ect, protection gear, there are hard carbon plates that you could wear on your lower legs, so snakes won't be able to bite true it.
Meaning that Xendra might like some of the more fancy necklashes that also cover the neck, besides dropping down to the breast.
I mean, pure metal as a neck protection?
And it's even a elegant fasion statement???
I can see Cordelia so going for it.
Yup, body protecting jewelry is the latest trend, especially if it looks good as well.

There are quite a few handschoes(?) in and around Sunnydale, that have power, how many do they have recovered by now?
Xendra might like a good set of something like that.
But the main problem will be finding a good set of running boots, I think.
It's almost a shame the Witchblade ain't real.
Comments from author:
Yes, the book demon happened already. And Xendra is going to have to make some hard decisions, because the more armor he wears and the more it adds to his resilience, the slower he will be, and he really needs to be able to run away from anything he can't kill. He's not Buffy.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from DavidEmpey
Review:
I can't wait for the fight! Hope Xendra kicks butt.

Xendra sounds like (s)he's a lot better prepared for the fledges than Buffy ever is/was when she patrolled. But I guess Buffy has compensating advantages.

Surely the collective term for vampires must be 'murder', like with crows.

What does Xendra look like? A teenaged Lucy Lawless? A female version of Xander?
Comments from author:
I thought about 'murder', along with a few dozen alternatives, because I obsess about stuff like that.

And Xendra looks closer to a teen Lucy Lawless.

Review:

Comments from author:
Xander never did get those pressure point tricks to work. (You may have noticed at least once where this came up in earlier chapters.)

I hope Xander is able to be a guy again.

Well, I don't believe in the Laws of Genderbending. And all it will take is a spell.

Review:
Soooo, can Xander do the Maiden role for his spell? Gonna be funny!
Comments from author:
For his own spell? No, I don't think that would work. Plus, Giles and Willow might not want to let Xander try magic again.

No, I have something even crazier for The Maiden.
