Review of chapter "Becoming, part V" from (Recent Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
Ok...well, "bad spot" is somewhat underestimating his/her current situation - but it certainly could have been a *whole* lot worse.
Comments from author:
If it hadn't been for Spike, it would have been far, far worse. So yay for Spike? And really, how on earth did Spike knock out Dru with a *chokehold* in the canon episode? I'm willing to let the whole 'Dru is a seer and should have seen it coming' issue since it was Spike, but how can you choke out a being who does not breathe and who does not have a beating heart?

Review of chapter "Becoming, part V" from CageFire
Review:
An okay chapter. I was a bit thrown off by the warning at the beginning. Perhaps you should've made it mentions of/references to rape or something similar and not stating it like somebody is actually raped. I almost didn't read the chapter.
Comments from author:
I thought I ought to be careful about this, since it is a very sensitive subject and a trigger subject for many readers.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part V" from Starfox
Review:
Oh, sad and gripping chapter. Very dark. Not one of Buffy's finest moments even in canon, doubly so now. I wonder how Xendra will get out of this.
Comments from author:
As far as Buffy knows, Xander and Giles have been dead for hours. Or are worse than dead.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part V" from DavidEmpey
Review:
"A good demonstration of Buffy's self-centered..."
Isn't that a little harsh? She didn't know Xander (Xendra?) and Giles were there.
Comments from author:
Unfortunately, as far as she knows, Xander and Giles are dead. Or worse than dead.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part V" from VillageOrchid
Review:
A good demonstration of Buffy's self-centered earlier life not being erased by her sense of responsibility as the slayer. It is more of her default to be inwards and self-pittying, while Xander - even in changed form - is the one who looks out for his friends.
Comments from author:
Well, to be fair, everything *is* about Buffy. The villains focus on her. The stress is on her. The threats are aimed at her. The trap is for her. The freaking Balance Demon is for her. The nightmare at home is for her. She knows Kendra is dead, and as far as she knows, Willow and Jenny and Xander and Giles are too, and she's just been thrown out of her home, and she's just had to murder the love of her (short) life to save the world. She *should* be a basketcase.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from raxadian
Review:
Again, sucks not to be Xena for him.
Comments from author:
Sucks not to be Xena for everyone except Slayers!

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from CageFire
Review:
Nice new chapter. Keep up the good work. Not sure how I feel about Jenny and Kendra seemingly /still/ ending up dead.
Comments from author:
Hey, Willow's the one that got a massive bookcase dumped on top of her. Worry about her!

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from MistofRainbows
Review:
This feels like railroading. Xander changes... gets better but things still go wrong in the same ways or worse... then again why the hell the gang waited for nightfall I don't understand... doing the spell in the middle of the day at a different location... like oh I don't know a HOUSE where the vampires can't get. I guess I was expecting a bit more from the crew... it felt like a kick in the face chapter...

I commend your writing skills to make it that painful... but yeah. Sorry, this came off more negative than I wanted.
Comments from author:
I had to wonder that myself. Why in canon did they choose to wait until nighttime, and why didn't they do it somewhere safe, like in Willow's house or Giles' apartment? Okay, the meta-reason drives everything here: Joss wanted to set up an ultra-dynamic season finale.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from lunalurker
Review:
It seems to be a law of the universe, and a very strange one at that: the more prepared you are, the more things go wrong and the worse they turn out anyway, apparently just to spite your efforts. Some kind of canon-inertia, perhaps.
Poor Jenny, and Kendra, and Xander, and everyone. This just turned absolutely *awful*.
Comments from author:
It's pretty much like what happened in canon, when the only person who got out of that library unscathed was Cordelia. And it certainly is a law of fiction-writing that the mroe detailed you spell out your plan for the readers ahead of time, the more you need to make it go off the rails or else it's really boring. 'Leverage' is an excellent example of how to make this work.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from DieselDriver
Review:
Would have been cool if he could have changed back to Xena and saved the day. Maybe in the next installment? We'll see what happens in the next exciting episode of "XENDRA"!
Comments from author:
Maybe he should try standing outside and yelling 'SHAZAM!' :D

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from Riniko
Review:
No, do they always have to go for the stupid move and actually send Buffy off leaving the others behind. If she had just stayed behind, Angelus would not have been able to make paid his threat because he would have been bound again. But, no, they have to save Angel by bring him back and stuffing him into his dead body again with Angelus the demon, guess that is what they get for doing a evil deed. Kendra dead, Jenny possibly dead or dying, Willow crushed/buried under a bookcase, Xander broken and carried to a unknown fate, and Giles dragged off to be tortured for information. Even if they do get Mr. Hairgel back I don't see that as being anywhere near even. Kendra should have keep her lucky stake on her, because they sure as hell will never think to bring her back as she is not Buffy or Angel. Oh, lucky her.
All that out of the way, looking forward to the next chapter, but not the wait.
Comments from author:
Not only is it a bad plan, but nobody kept their hat. (Okay, that's an obscure ref, but it needed to be made.)

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from Senko
Review:
Really? They tried to re-ensoul Angel in the library rather than say the safety of someone's home where vampires can't just stroll in the back door and they didn't even put a protective circle big enough everyone can safely stay in it. Shame about Kendra although I did sort of see that one coming after you killed off Oz afterall if one main character can die in someones fix minor ines have no chance. Although I am surprised that when they were expecting trouble and had several extra people it wound up worse for them than in the cannon episode.
Comments from author:
I never figured out why they did that spell in the library. Willow's house! Her mom's never there. Amy's house. Giles' apartment. They have options! But it just seemed like it was always the library at night, so bad stuff could happen as planned by to Joss.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part IV" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I had this strange feeling when they were doing a "restore the soul" improvised ritual that it might bring Xena's soul back to Xander - but then you seemingly went in another direction. Looking forward to seeing what you have planned next.

Review of chapter "Becoming, part III" from raxadian
Review:
Ah Acathla, it would be fun if that used to be Xena's sword, well not her usual sword, but one she got for doing that job.
Comments from author:
It wouldn't be the first demon she killed. She was pretty rough on the entire world supernatural population.
