Review of chapter "Ch. 4 - The Opening Salvo" from SaraB
I'm so glad you havent abandoned this story! Seeing Methos' dreams of himself as Death...very well written.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I've been suffering from a lack of inspiration for the past few months and I felt terrible about leaving this story hanging. I signed up for the Fic-a-thon hoping that that would get the creative juices flowing. Writing that story was difficult, but maybe it worked. I got an idea for this part and just sat down and wrote it in one go. I'm glad you liked the Methos-as-Death bits. I wrote the Willow stuff first, and then thought that Methos should be dreaming simultaneously.

Review of chapter "Ch. 3 - An Evil Interlude" from Clannadlvr
Oh, wicked! You're continuing the story!! Please post more soon...I can't wait to see how Methos and Willow combat the evilness that threatens them!!
Comments from author:
Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't think the updates will be too plentiful in the near future. I just had my last-ever class in law school - yesterday. Now I'm getting ready to face exams. I graduate in early May, and that means I'll be having house-guests. Also, in my copious free time I'm going to be looking for a job. Yeesh. Trust me, I'd much rather be writing fic.

Review of chapter "Ch. 1 - Welcome Home" from Maverick
you updated!!! yay!! *does the happy dance*
really cute...really really cute! i just love your story! make sure to update soon!

Comments from author:
Thank you Alex. My original plan was to update once a week. Well, that went to hell in the proverbial handbasket. An extrordinarily busy schedule, houseguests, and a dearth of inspiration got in the way. I hope to update this weekend. *fingers crossed*
I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. Thanks again.

"Since you’re She Who Bumps Off the Things that Go Bump in the Night you got a mention as well"

Comments from author:
Thanks! The first time I wrote that line I felt like it didn't quite gel, so I re-worked it a bit. I'm glad it made you laugh.

Review of chapter "Ch. 1 - Welcome Home" from SamMallory
Yay! I'm so happy to see that you've updated. I really enjoyed Death and the End of the World, so it's good to know that more of the similar is on the way. Your characterization is spot on, and I just love how you write Willow babble. Oh, and "You're right. You're right. I know you're right." :)
Comments from author:
Woo Hoo! We have a winner folks! Thanks so much for the feedback. Writing Willow-babble is always fun. I'm glad you like the characterization. It's really important to me to try to be true to the characters.

Review of chapter "Ch. 1 - Welcome Home" from Phidan
Your writing style is really charming, I enjoy the dialogue immensely. The bit with the door-opening spell is a great punchline and you set the joke up perfectly. Thanks for posting chapter two so promptly! And thanks also for clarifying the timeline.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much. I'll try to keep posting regularly. My goal is once a week, barring writer's block.

Review of chapter "Ch. 1 - Welcome Home" from VillageOrchid
That was fun. Well fortunately Adam Pierson has the advanced degrees
to explain why he knows dead languages
and can help with the research.
Looking forward to some double takes.
And yes, I could have enjoyed a little more body langauge
description or ways of speaking phrases with Methos, but
you're not so rusty, as I'm enjoying the story.
Comments from author:
Thanks - I'm still getting back into the groove.

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Hellmouth" from Stacia2
Yahoo! I'm so glad you decided to do a sequel. I can't wait to see what comes up.

Comments from author:
Thanks so much. I'm hoping to get the first part posted today. I was a little busier over the weekend than I had expected. Oh, and let me take this opportunity to say that I never meant to duplicate your author name. Actually, I never even checked before I chose mine. Stacia is a pretty unusual name. Nevertheless, I was surprised, and more than a bit chagrined when I saw that I'd become a copycat. Sorry about that!

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Hellmouth" from Phidan
I am sooooo happy to see you are writing a sequel to Death and the End of the World, I enjoyed that story a lot. (Dances the Dance of Anticipation of Great Fic.) I'm looking forward to seeing what you do to Methos in Sunnydale, as well as your version of how the Scoobies are doing these days, and What Comes Next -- I do trust your version of the "next season" is going to be lots better than what ME threw together, since I think you do better characterisation than anybody in ME was doing during that season! I'll be watching for the next update with a smile.
Comments from author:
Wow, that is so nice of you. Thank you muchly. Of course, your lovely comments just reinforce my internal voice that says "OK, now you actually have to write something half-decent!"
Regarding the timeline, it will be the next season - sort of. I imagine that Willow spent a few months with the Scoobies after returning from England before she took off and settled in Seacouver. She was there for around six or seven months. So, it's been about one year since Tara died and Wills went all wicked witch. Hmm, I should probably make that little bit o' info clear in the next part. Initially, I was thinking that the story would be strictly AU after Season 6, but now I think I might incorporate a few things from Season 7. Don't worry, you won't see hide nor hair of any Potentials or Caleb (and no Buffy speechifying). I'd like to say more, but I don't want to give stuff away. Thanks again!

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Hellmouth" from StephanieGee

I really enjoyed Death and the End of the World, and it looks like this one is going to be just as good. I too think that the Willow/Methos paring should be kept and developed. Though I am sure that the others will have definite opinions on their best friend dating the ROG.

Comments from author:
Hi Stephanie - I think you are definitely in the majority about keeping Willow/Methos as a dating relationship. I don't feel like they're quite there yet. I'm not saying yea or nay on the subject yet. No matter what, they will remain very close friends - kindred spirits. Thank you for the feedback!

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Hellmouth" from Zith
First of all I just wanted to say that I thought Death and the End of the World was really good, especially for a beginning effort. This one started out pretty good. I like how she sensed the Hellmouth. And I definitely think you should keep the Willow/Methos pairing, in case you were somehow thinking of doing something else. As for ideas, i dunno, I think there should definitely be something between Methos and Anya cause they're both so old; either they met before, or they remember the same obscure event, or they just get along really well or something. Just a thought.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Actually, I felt like this was a bit of a rough beginning. I haven't been writing for a while and I need to get back into the swing of things. I can't make any promises about Willow/Methos. Sorry - I like them as a couple too, but their relationship still feels unsettled to me. I'm honestly not sure how they'll end up. As for Anya and Methos, I'm looking forward to their interaction. I think they will be fun to write.

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Hellmouth" from FallenCaryatid
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I adore Methos/Willow and they're so rare a pairing; it's truly a joy to see one of my favorite fanfics grow a sequel, so thank you again and keep writing!
Comments from author:
Thanks! I got such wonderfully encouraging feedback on the first story that I promised to do the sequel. I've been putting it off because I've been pretty busy the past few months, but if I wait for a 'convenient' time it would never happen. So, I jumped in with both feet. Now I have to keep going! Thanks again.

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Hellmouth" from VillageOrchid
Well, yes, that certainly was a teaser! In terms of pairings... I don't think you need to pair everyone on up necessarily,
but you should decide who of the established characters are together with each other.
I'd like to see Giles have a love, but I see him not trying to hard to have more than a flirtation due to the danger of his life's mission.
I wouldn't mind OCs for any of the main characters, either, as long as they stay "civilians" in the war against evil.
I guess the other factor is Spike, and where he is on his journey. So basically, while I know the story may not be about everyone
back home, I'd like it to at least touch on all of the main character's existances and let us know what they are doing, even if it is in the background.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the suggestions. As for the pairings, well, not everybody is going to get hooked up. I think it would be too much to manage. Dawn will stay single, and probably poor old Giles. I agree with you that I don't really see him pursuing something serious on the hellmouth. I wish that Olivia had come back after 'Hush'. I think I'll have Xander/Anya, just because I like them. Spike will definitely show up, and he'll be all soul-having. I'm not sure what will happen with Buffy. I have a basic plan in my head, but I'll be tying down loose ends along the way. Thanks!
