Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from OlBear
Nice interaction between Xander and Angel, keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more chapters soon. Please don't keep your readers waiting too long.
Comments from author:
Well, I have the third chapter almost done, but the fourth is proving more difficult.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from djhardim

Also, thank you to Eric for pointing out that silver is Ag, not Hg. Hg is mercury, I must have been thinking about those liquid silver rounds there.

As I recall, the old name for Mercury was Quicksilver.

What effect would Mohra blood have on Xander?
Comments from author:
It would not make him human. Though it could, perhaps remove the weakness to sunlight.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from (Recent Donor)TheDivineDemon
While I'm disappointed you didn't make him a Hybrid this seems pretty chill. Looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
Actually, I haven't decided yet. He modeled himself on Selene, so it is possible. The option will be open until he actually sticks his hand in the sunlight to test.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AbscondingCascade
Oh this is going to be *good* Any chance of any odd couple antics with Angel and Xander? Also while normal bullets might not kill vampires - unless you go for ludicrous overkill - they can hurt them. Look at what happened to spike when he healed Drusilla and that organ collapsed on him.

It paralyzed him for a few weeks till his vampire healing sorted him out, which means that logically the demon enhances the body but does not change the core components. If you cut say a nerve then till it heals then the vampire can't move.

So if you shoot a vamp in the head then it should at *least* be incapacitated for a day, as when Spike was chipped he couldn't just have the chip ripped out and allow him to go back to his rampaging monster mode.

And with Incendiary ammo(1) (if a WWI one can ignite a Zeppelin then one should ingnite a vampire, as evidenced by spike setting a vampire on fire with his lighter) and Dragon's breath(2) would work against vamps.

As guns aren't useless, plus if a crossbow can take down a demon then a bullet will puncture its hide. The reason knights fell out of favor is due to crossbows and guns.

Anyway in thanks -


Comments from author:
Believe me, I don't think for a second that bullets are useless against demons or vamps. My characters don't know that fact yet, but they'll likely learn. My own favorite Vamp-killing round is made from pressed sawdust surrounded by a lead sabot. On impact, the lead mushrooms like a hollow point round and also drives the sawdust into the vamp. The sawdust comes unglued and scatters into the victim. If even the teensiest bit of sawdust hits the heart, the vamp dusts. Kill radius for the round is about 3/4s of the chest.

Thanks for the link. I can honestly say I've never heard the full song. Or is that just the opening credits looped? It was hard to tell.

In thanks.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
An additional point: At least an Underworld vamp can see herself in a mirror. I don't think the Buffyverse could withstand the SHEER EVIL a Vamp Cordy who couldn't see herself in a mirror would do.

Opps. I seem to have missed this review this morning. That is a good point.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kyro
well I have to say more!!!, but question how old is the death dealer that Xander went as ,and how is he going react to oz being a werewolf I don't think his new instincts are going to respond well to that cant wait to see Angelus reaction to vamp Xander. Plus vamp Cordy would hilarious. can't wait for the next chap.
Comments from author:
1. 350. 2. Not well. 3. Angel is the one hanging out for now. We'll have to see if Angelus ever visits. I'm also getting hooked on this idea of a vamped Cordy.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Nice start. I look forward to seeing how Death Dealer Xander changes canon BtVS. I must admit I would find it highly amusing to see Xander have to Turn Cordy to save her life. Wouldn't that tick Jasmine off? Lol!
Comments from author:
Vampire Cordelia would be fricking hilarious.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from michaelangelo
Good thing Xander's type of Vamp is merely am immortal Transgenic human and not undead, and also immune to crosses, Holy water and stakes, though no doubt the latter would hurt like a bitch. Now all Xander needs to do is get Oz to bite him the first time they come across him in Wolfy form.

I have one question, who did Xander dress as? I ask because unlike the BtVS the Underworld Vampire doesn't get stronger with age. They instead get weaker with each generation from the progenitor Marcus Corvinus, Death dealers being the weakest 2nd gen Viktor and Amelia being 1st gen. Saying that though, even the weakest are, if not more, powerful then a BtVS Master Vamp. Marcus Corvinus would spank the Master and laugh at Slayers. Xander would have to have Corvinus blood in his veins to become a Hybrid.

Ah well I'll wait and see I hope. Good going, nice story.

PS: Strangely enough Eve, Selene's daughter looks like a BtVS Vampire when in game face.
Comments from author:
He went as a non-specific Death Dealer named Alexander. Though he had Selene's powers in mind with the costume, so he's likely 2nd Gen Turned by Viktor or Amelia. Though, since he had Selene in mind, he might have gotten her bag of tricks too. We'll see.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from cmdruhura
Yeah, I was glad the New Moon was on Halloween 1997 for my story Family Issues. Made things so much easier for what is to come there.
Comments from author:
Hmm, I'm trying to remember why that would be without re-reading the entire story. That's the Casanova one. I'm just trying to remember why the new moon would matter for that. Maybe for Drusilla's ritual... But I can't remember if you've gotten that far on that one. (In my defense, you have A LOT of active stories going)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Difdi

Or it could be that breaking the statue with a bullet that would not exist were it not for the spell had side effects. That's the way I'd bet on the matter.
Comments from author:
Hadn't even thought of that actually. But that's a good catch. Good Job! ^.^

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Riniko
Well this version of Xander does have a chance to see the sun again if he finds the ring that Spike found in one of the shows that protected him. Still I would not put a heavy bet on Xander letting Ethan have a long life.
Comments from author:
There is one other way he could see the sun again. But I'm not telling. :-)

And now that Xander has calmed down a bit, Ethan's chances went up significantly. If he had done it to Willow, though, I wouldn't give him a snowball's chance in Hell.
