Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from SirLee
Review:
Maybe "Xendra" is just a variant on "Xandra", as in "shortened form of 'Alexandra'", same as "Xander" is short for "Alexander?" That is, Xendra is just her family nickname?

(I vaguely remember a quote by pterry on APF explaining why he named Death's granddaughter simply "Susan"; he said something like it's a fairly common name but you will rarely find a teenager calling herself just "Susan" instead of one of its myriad variations such as Susie, Suzi, Siouxie and such)
Comments from author:
Maybe it's one of those weird Giles family names like Edna. :D

Review:
Five and eight to go?

That's thirteen total, no wonder it is considered an unlucky number by many..
Comments from author:
I personally like the number 13. And it's always available. And it freaked out superstitious opposing softball players, even though I was one of the worst batters on a not-exactly-impressive team.

Very good couple of chapters. Adding the mythology and plot.
Comments from author:
The plot for this arc is just shaping up.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from HMaxMarius
Review:
Why do I feel like this little charade is going to jump up and bite Xendra in her shapely ass.

*snort* I saw what you did with the 007 reference... ;) a little cross fan-fic pollination. =D
Comments from author:
:D Yes, I have done that more than once. It's largely to entertain my muse, but I appreciate it when my readers spot it as well.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from DavidEmpey
Review:
Dunno if I'd call the bezoar monster an apocalypse, although it would certainly have been bad for Sunnydale. Could have led to one, I guess.
Comments from author:
Yeah, that one's a maybe. I'm sure Travers won't count it. But there are some other borderline calls too. The Judge? Not borderline at all. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the key components of a nuclear bomb would not count as 'forged'.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from Starfox
Review:
Good chapter. I loved the spin Giles and Xendra put on all the events, and the reactions from the different watchers.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Review:
Outstanding. Superlative. Extraordinary. Brilliant.

Awe-inspiring.

I have never, in 42 years of reading, seen an author use "syzygy" in a phrase, much less appropriately and timely.

Madam, I salute you.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

And let me recommend that you use 'syzygy' the next time you play hangman. At a minimum, it will make your opponents start guessing 'y' and 'z' with great regularity. Mwa-ha-hah. If you're allowed three-letter words, try 'cwm'. No , that w is not a typo. Once they suspect that all of your words will have too many uncommon letters in them, hit them with something simple like 'golf' which has medium-frequency letters in it.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from Grovtech
Review:
I was surprised by the infor that there really is a Xandra Giles as well. Additionally, Xander has proven to be a rather skilled actor seeing that he is still kind of new at being female and English. :)

I agree that waiting for the next installment takes a bit of willpower. This is seriously addictive, but that is to be expected given the writer.

Comments from author:
Thanks, and thanks for the rec!

And I'm not upping the publishing rate until there is enough of a buffer that I don't have to worry about missing planned publishing dates, which would be worse. No one likes it when the regularly scheduled program is interrupted, especially if it makes you worry that the program will never appear again.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from Dragan
Review:
Hmm Might have to mention that Hank has custody of the Slayer during the Summer and that it is necessary so that the Slayer doesn't burn out?

Could be wrong. :)
Comments from author:
It's about to come up. Fortunately, Xendra thinks outside the box.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from raxadian
Review:
Wait, since when there is a REAL Xendra Giles, and who names their girl Xendra? Something is fishy here.
Comments from author:
Where did you think Giles got a name like that anyway? He pulled out the name of one of his nieces. And I have no idea why people give their children names like that. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their kid North West. NORTHWEST! What the hell were they thinking? Is the kid's middle name Bynorth?

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part VI" from DavidEmpey
Review:
Being a girl is hard. Reading about that makeup makes me glad I'm a slob!

What are the 5 Apocalypses?

1 The Harvest
2 Prophecy Girl
3 the Judge
4 Acathla
5 ??? the attempted resurrection of the Master in When She Was Bad ???

Very much enjoying Xendra, and looking forward to the next update.
Comments from author:
Don't forget Lothos, back in the original movie.

But the Judge isn't even a December/May apocalypse. That was Spike's attempt to cure Dru, which would have unleashed a demon. The Judge is a bonus apocalypse, as is the bezoar.

I'm not sure I should use the words 'bonus' and 'apocalypse' together. And yes, women's makeup is a lot more complicated than it looks (when done well). It takes training and practice. Why do you think teenage girls look so awful and over-done for a couple years, until they get it down right?

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
You *wish* it was made from shredded slime demons.

They'd be more sanitary.
Comments from author:
At least shredded slime demons don't have 'allowable amounts of insect legs' in them.

Review:
A cramping and bloated Xendra is no ones friend. Indeed she might be everyone's nightmare!
Comments from author:
Oh, don't worry, the cramping is still a few days away. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from Starfox
Review:
AA very detailed description of a torture shopping trip and a nice scene with Willow. Well done.
Comments from author:
What makes you think that's an *unusual* shopping trip? :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from Riniko
Review:
Don't worry you are getting closer to 'Joss Whedon levels of evil' with every new chapter because it has me craving the next one more than a bowl of ice-cream after every reading. Wishing Willow would find her inter lesbian soon, but you know when she does Xandra will finally revert back. So, it will end up will Xander/Sandra going back and forth to keep Willow happy in the end.
Comments from author:
Well, I do have things planned out all the way to the finale, which is quite a long way away. So you can speculate, but I'm not blabbing.
