Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from hamishog
Review:
I don't really know what the numbers mean so don't take the rating too seriously.
I liked the build-up. While I'm an avid fan of folklore and mythology I have an especial affinity for that of the British Isles so I appreciated a lot of the background. But even the part that you created was presented in a manner that made it seem totally factual. Not to mention Giles' reaction. Which is to say that your use of your source material was very authentic as well as the manner in which you wove it into the story. Tres bien.
I think by now that you've figured out that I liked it. That seems to be my reaction to most of your work but this one especially. Your feminization of Gawaine, Bors, and Perceval was really good. Unconsciously or on purpose I identified the Gawaine character with Buffy (sorry, can't remember the names precisely), Bors with Faith and Perceval with Kendra. There's some myth behind each name and not just Arthurian.
I have only one complaint Her Sword. You chose to stop. I don't like that, I don't like that at all. You keep doing that - sucking me into a story and then, voop, it's gone. I'm starting to think you'd don't like me.
If this review makes sense then it's not my fault. You're a great story-teller. You reached out and grabbed my interest from the start. I'm sorry about your arm. I hope it's not debilitating.

Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from lunalurker
Review:
I do love this story, and the latest chapter, and the only quibble would be that the lack of Willow screentime in later chapters.
Please do take care of yourself, and get better soon!
Your fans care. :)

Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from Rich
Review:
Somehow, I missed this story until the latest chapter, and I'm glad that I caught it. You've got the characters and dialog nailed down solidly. The "revised" Slayer history is interesting, and I like the way you've tied multiple threads of folklore together (yes, I know you made some of them up, but not all of them). Also, you're giving us an interesting twist on the events of the season. I'll keep reading this.

Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from wonderbee
Review:
First off, will be hoping that things work out well on the medical side, and that the Docs can fix you right back up. Now, this was a neat section, and it looks like Xander can indeed take a lot of punishment, but would hate to think of what happened if Drusilla were to get ahold of m so she could play with her kitten, while Spike would love to visit the rail yards and bring back souvenirs. Will wonder what may happen with Kendra and what the what may go down with her, or if she will again not make it out of Sunnydale alive in the end.

Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from (Recent Donor)tammin
Review:
This undertaking is truly worthy of the title "Epic". The blending of BTVS mythos and ancient Briton myth is well down. The "Green Man" being Arthur a.k.a the Xander of his time was a nice touch. The imagery of the falcon, the stone, and the three owls being the slayers, the white knight, and the "Merlin" was also well done. Bringing in the Guardian and the Slayer Scythe (although why it was referred to as that when clearly it's an ax is beyond me) completes the Arthurian hat trick.

I hope that you feel better soon, and good health for you and your family.

Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from Greywizard
Review:
First off, sorry top hear that you're having health issues. ;-(

Hope they are rectified as much as they can be as quickly as possible.

Okay, having said that, I want to tel you that I just re-read the entire story again, and have to say how much I'm enjoying this one. ;-)

I loved the characterizations you're showing, and the way you've skewed canon from the Joss-verse, which had, for the most part, an extremely depressing and nihilistic bent to it.

Thanks for sharing this with us, and I hope we see more of it soon, because you're feeling so much better than you are now.

Review of chapter "I Hate Everything About You" from purrfus
Review:
Fun. The bits of Kendra POV are lovely. She's usually written so stilted so its nice to see something different.

Why to people grip about proper English? How many people speak in proper English? Not many, at least in the US, so why nag at writers who write conversations the way the majority of the people in the chosen reality speak? And when writing in BtVS there should be even less nagging because of the amount of slayage the characters typically applied to basic American English.
