Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from SilverWave
Review:
Interesting stuff, but as for "evidence" what about Amy and magic?

:-)
Comments from author:
"Just because Amy is the next David Copperfield, that doesn't mean magic is *real*. What are you going to do next, saw Willow in half? I've seen that."

Joyce is proving pretty stubborn. After all, she saw Buffy and Spike dust two vamps right in front of her the night Kendra died.

Review of chapter "Halloween, part I" from ChefJackButler
Review:
So you're arguing that "gay and doesn't know it" Willow isn't feeling the least bit attracted to Xander right now?

That strains incredulity.
Comments from author:
Au contraire, mon frere! I am arguing that Willow is feeling attracted, and is so freaked out that she can hardly stay in the same room sometimes. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
I see the previous reviewer beat me to it. You know the big bad's hideout? And it's not even underground? There's absolutely no reason *not* to jump straight to "let's firebomb it" at the first available opportunity.
Comments from author:
What makes you think it's not underground? How many of these empty warehouses have underground areas, connections into the Sunnydale tunnels, etc?

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from hamishog
Review:
Work smarter, not harder. And if you know that a certain effete vampire is nesting in an otherwise empty warehouse then what is wrong with a constructive molotov cocktail. Urban renewal at its finest.
This is an interesting piece and I am enjoying it somewhat. On the other hand I'd like to see Xander again. What I am reading now has given me a certain sense of foreboding.
Comments from author:
Forebode away! :D And you might see Xander again. I'm wacky like that.

Review of chapter "Halloween, part I" from ChefJackButler
Review:
Got to say that the "romantic subplot" in this story is getting stale. Its hit "shit or get off the pot" a while ago and now just feels like you're torturing your characters.
Comments from author:
Well, it's going to stagnate while there's no Xander, and it may resurrect itself later in the story.

Review:
Okay, this guy plans are inproving.
Comments from author:
It's always a pain when the badguys up their planning skills, and it's usually fun when the goodguys do.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from Senko
Review:
You know I got bored and started rereading this, just made the connection between Scott and a certain blond Xena passed. Could be awkward dealing with having actually done that (multiple times) rather than just remembering it although I suspect he became someone other than the Disney Cinderella or even the original one. Of course just what stage she was at could seriously affect just how awkward and potentially painful it was.The swim team bit got me thinking about how their hormone inducted transformation later may interact with ha ving been real mermaids. Perhaps less swamp boy more. . .

There's also the interesting thought that if Scott suddenly got interested in boys and Xena was bisexual could this mean Xander is also going to become a bit more inclined that way with his/her new memories? The possibilities of a bisexual witch and bisexual shape shifter are quite extensive even if they're outside the scope of this story.

As for this chapter I haven't really much to say other than it should be interesting to see how Xander combines dealing with the vampires and convincing miss summers of the truth. Nice to see them finally getting around to taking the time to check up on and help Joyce, Cordy is good for that.

Anyway still enjoying this story.
Comments from author:
Xander has been influenced by his costume. Buffy was. Scott was. The swim team guys were...

I'm seeing a trend.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from Harmne
Review:
I have to say I'm completely loving Xander as Xendra! But not so much that I'd want him to be stuck that way.

The Council members who whine about having to patrol the other Hellmouths without Slayers could learn a lot from Willow, Xander/Xendra, Giles & Cordelia. The pre-staking the fledges was genius!

Will Buffy come home before Xendra is healed enough to be turned back into Xander? It'd be cool to have Buffy and Young Xena be able to fight together at least once. And besides, unless she sees for herself would she believe all her friends' hijinks?

Waiting anxiously for the next 'episode'...!!
Comments from author:
Thanks. And you'll have to wait two weeks. That's my current publishing schedule, because Xendra isn't fifty chapters ahead of publishing queue, like Alex was.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from raxadian
Review:
Those vamps are in Sunnydale during the Summer, sharp? I don't think so.
Comments from author:
Well, they're different from facing something like Angelus.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from LeChasseur
Review:
Denial is strong in this one. *nod nod*
Comments from author:
Yeah, I'd be pretty darn skeptical if someone tried that routine on me. "My daughter is getting in trouble because she fights vampires? Are they sparkly in daylight? Do they act like sulky fifty year old women? Now just sit here while I call 9-1-1..."

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
Alas, Joyce is still in deep denial. Pity they no longer have a friendly Angel to "vamp out" on demand in front of her, and providing more direct proof will be hazardous.
Comments from author:
Yes, more direct proof could be REALLY hazardous. And they don't know about Lorne's bar in LA.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from Riniko
Review:
Poor Joyce, having her world view being hit by a bus or two and still trying to pretend everything is normal. If she wants normal, she has to see her daughter as a murdering nut case, but if she accepts the vampires are real she gets her daughter has been risking her own life protecting the world.
Really not worried about anachronisms in stories I read as I see these as AU worlds that don't have to have the same timeline as this one. And those that make a big fuss about them are annoying to everyone that enjoys a good story. Besides some of them are just funny.
Comments from author:
I often sit here and argue with myself. "Anachronism or the funny? Option A or option B? Come on muse, make up your mind!" In stories like Xendra, I go for the entertaining. In stories like the Whateley Universe, where I'm working with a timeline and other writers, I go for the timeline.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from AntonioCC
Review:
I fear for Joyce, if what Xendra's mind has cooked is what I suspect.
Comments from author:
Yes, it is going to be an excursion into the disturbing. Especially if you think about Xendra's brain. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from hamishog
Review:
Reading the reviews I must admit there are some very interesting topics for conversation.
What do you call a large collection of vampires? I don't call them anything. Why would I call them? That's a good way to get dead. How about a whole lot of bloodsucking corpses? They're vampires for goodness sake.
Anachronisms? Don't care. Stories good enough that I'm just going to gloss over anything like that anyway. I've looked on a map of the United States and while there is a California there is no town called Sunnydale north of Los Angeles. Having determined that I cannot regard any inconsistencies that occur to be anything but anomalies of the dimension in which the story occurs. Suspension of disbelief is easy; we do it every election year.
Now, as to Miss Giles. That really depends on what kind of family Giles has. If anyone from the Council calls then to me the most likely result will be that whoever responds will hem, and haw, until they can get to Giles to ask him why the Council is calling. Despite how it seems these aren't troops, nor are they fanatics. This is a family matter and none of their business. Mind their manners and keep their revolting thoughts to themselves.
But that's just what I think. So far, Xander is doing pretty as a Brit from the upper echelons. If the gypsies screw up I wonder if Giles' family would adopt and claim he's their Xendra's twin.
Comments from author:
There are not that many places where a mythical Sunnydale could be located, given the amount of population along the California coast. There is nowhere south of Los Angeles that is available unless you want to have neighboring cities crowding in and interfering with your plans to open a Hellmouth and do other badness. I mentally place it along the California coast west of the Los Padres National Forest, and I pretend this is a section where State Highway 1 veers inland long enough to miss the seaside town of Sunnydale.
