Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from ChaosKitsune
Review:
Happy to have to see you writing again. As always happy to see this Faith calling them out on their B.S.

Also Xander has minor magical potential. Giles and Ethan have moderate, and Willows had moderate until dark empowerment made it greater. Lavelle is an Irish name. Harris is European. I'm guessing his ancestors are Irish settlers. If there is any magic to be found in his ancestry it has to be with Irish Druidism. That makes a strange kind of sense, because the Hyena incident should not have made him the leader when there was a female present.

I did a little name translation when I was bored and found out that Xander's full name means something.

Alexander Lavelle Harris means: Protector of man, (fond of travel) wishing for, joy to shine.

Maybe that was done on purpose.

EDIT: So that would make him French/Irish?
Comments from author:
Actually, there are two etymologies for Lavelle. The Irish one from Fhábhail. And the one from French that simply means 'from the valley'

Protector of man From the valley could be equally on purpose.

EDIT: Both Lavelle and Harris are fairly popular in the British Isles. From the spelling of Harris, his father's ancestors were probably English settlers. Lavelle is anyone's guess since we don't know why he got that name. I've seen some stories where that's his mother's maiden name, which could make her Irish, French, or British. But nothing from canon.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from (Recent Donor)Hawklan
Review:
Chapter 7

nice how Faith has handled Angel, hope his time in LA will went a bit smoother now.

poor Lagos...taken down again by the two evil slayers ;)


Chapter 8.

rofl..Faith the responsible one....that must have caught her real off guard ;)
Comments from author:
I don't know how Angel's time in LA is going to go. It will probably be pretty close to canon.

And yes, poor Lagos. I didn't need him so he gets the 'ax'.


And yes, Faith as the responsible one surprised even ME. When my fingers wrote those words... I had to stop typing for a minute to think. But it was true from the Scoobies' perspective and very funny, so I left it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9.5" from ChefJackButler
Review:
Nicely done, and believable.

EDIT: You know... believeable within the context of the story. My ability to suspend disbelief was not overly challenged by this story because it was internally well-constructed.
Comments from author:
When someone calls going back in time into your younger body to boink your husband-to-be 'believable', then I guess I've done my job right. :-)

Reply: I know. And thank you. My muse finds creative ways to escape when I'm unable to write. Odd replies tend to one of those ways.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9.5" from Orchamus
Review:
Kinda awesome, just hopin that maybe this Xander can sync with his once future self somehow, because in the comics of season 8 Xander Harris supposedly shows that he really is quite remarkable.
Comments from author:
Faith already knows how awesome Xander can be. Now she just has to be patient and train him to be that man.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Recent Donor)Hawklan
Review:
Chapter 2

good Faith could save Diana this time and nice how DD torched that old goat ;)


Chapter 3

ahh poor Faith, wouldn't want to be in her shoes going in there to meet the "old" friends.
Comments from author:
Yes, imagine going back to high school to meet your friends as they were then. It's likely you would find them horribly immature.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9.5" from ShyBob
Review:
Loving the new and improved Faith. Kind of "I am what I am," flipped. You've done a great job with the interludes of Xander and Faith future awesomeness, plus the hard work of building up the Scoobies v1.5. Nice, well-supported plot line where we're just starting to see the ripples. Kind of a shock to see Faith as the respectable one, as well.
Comments from author:
It was kind of a shock to both Faith and I to realize that I'd written her as more responsible than the Scoobies, but that's just what happens as you get older. And there will probably some comparisons to IAWIA. Simply because MMcGreggor did it first and did it better than anyone else. I think that one kind of got a little out of hand with the magical weapons, but he still wrapped it up well. I'm shooting to keep things toned down. Also, the Judge will not be their primary enemy.

If you haven't read Wesley's Mulligan, you should. It's another "Do Over" story that's very good.

Read this story in one go this morning, really enjoyed it and I hope you get round to finishing it soon.

Great read, I'm putting it on track so I don't miss anything.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9.5" from BillPh
Review:
Good story.

I fully agree that the council would not be rich, for exactly the reasons you state.

I also think that the council was not as bad as most fanfic makes out, but that is another issue.

I always though Spike was a better villain that a hero, so I am happy he was dusted.

Glad to see that faith is planning to stay in the new reality.
Comments from author:
I agree that the council in canon certainly wasn't evil. In my stories they tend to be misguided. Or perhaps just selfish is the best way to describe them.

The less said about Spike's loss of coolness, the better.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9.5" from Gideon
Review:
Faith is giving Xander tips on not being a slacker and working hard? What a strange world you have created! And while Xander may not have a problem with his sudden change in circumstances some of his friends will! Maybe Cordy will call down vengeance on Faith's head this time?
Comments from author:
Xander changed a lot over the course of the seasons and even more after the series ended. And yes, not everyone will be happy with this turn of events.
