Review of chapter "Operation Proposal" from JasonBarnett
Review:
I hope you make this a bit more light-hearted than season six. I mean Joyce likes Spike, so that may ease the Buffy/Spike relationship. And having an adult to talk to might help the Scoobies. I mean, I assume that they'll contact Joyce to let her know Buffy's back. I guess she'll do some traveling. And if Jack and Xander meet, well there might be someone who can talk Xander out of walking out on Anya or give him more confidence leading up the the wedding. To me Buffy season six required each and everyone of the Scoobies to behave at their absolute worst, from Xander walking out without a word, to Giles abandoning the Scoobies when they needed him(I'd like to see the Sccobies have gotten so down on Willow's magic without a watcher to research, or a Slayer or Slayerbot to fight), Tara suddenly being scared of magic, to Willow(even though I didn't have a problem with a lot of what she did especially in comparison to other), I did have a problem with her being so trusting she'd just let Rack cast spells on her. So perhaps with Joyce only a phone call away an adult presence might help them.

By the way, do you think Joyce would believe Willow's logic that since Buffy died falling through a hell portal she might have gotten stuck in hell?

I've already got most of the plot line planned out, but I might consider some of the things you've mentioned because I agree with you. However, like I've said, I am trying to keep the Buffyverse side as cannon as I can. Thanks for the input!

Review of chapter "Operation Proposal" from CPTSkip
Review:
Well, before your story goes all "angsty" I just wanted to tell you again how much I love this story. Your characterization is superb and I am really enjoying your story.
Comments from author:
I hope even with the more dramatic plotline you'll continue to enjoy this story as much as I enjoy reading your review!

Review of chapter "Sunday Afternoon BBQ" from CPTSkip
Review:
This is just such a nifty story. You write the characters so well and their situation is both funny and realistic. I can't wait for more. I like the idea of an alien girl and a mystical being becoming friends. There is just such a strange symmetry to their very odd lives. Lol!

Review of chapter "Sunday Afternoon BBQ" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Still positively grooving on the story. Just curious, Jack-the-clone not in Colordo Springs foster family or emancipated teen?
I actually like it better that way, what with possible Smallville crossovers, etc. But since the Foster-family issue and suicide
watch issues came up, Jack knows what he's like...just curious. Thanks for adding to the story!
Comments from author:
I always figured Jack's mini-me would be emancipated... I wasn't planning on bringing in little Jack for this story, but because of the mentions of him by you silly reviewers hehe He will be making a bit of a cameo in a future chapter. Thank you for the review and keeping me thinking more with this :-)

Review of chapter "First Date" from Jill
Review:
I thought Bargaining happened about three months after, but that's unimportant. If you need to tinker with the timeline for your story, that's fanfic.

Anyway, nice chapter. Keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "First Date" from JasonBarnett
Review:
I like this fic. And I hope that the lack of Joyce in "heaven" might halp Buffy be happier when she comes back.

Review of chapter "First Date" from malaskor
Review:
Very nice beginning, this story has a lot of potential. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops :)
just a little idea/suggestion: How about having Dawn meet Mini-Jack?

Whatever you decide, keep up the good work and thanks for sharing
Comments from author:
Thank you for the suggestion. I had thought about it, and they may meet in a later chapter. I still haven't decided, but even if they did nothing would come of it except a possible friendship. Her mom and her seeing the same guy...(which is kinda how that would be) umm lol naw don't think so. But I apreciate the idea, Thanks again!

Review of chapter "New Beginnings" from EyesOfGold
Review:
Lol loved it! It's good there were no portals involved, 'cause I gotta say, and no offence to anyone, that portals have been way overdone. Anyway...back to the story. Chili can thief was absolutely hilarious; I could see Jack doing just that. Well I really hope you continue on with this story!

Review of chapter "New Beginnings" from tals
Review:
aww! *gushes over the cuteness in the fic* I really loved this first chapter. Very promising. A good sense of humour and good characterisations. You moved them out of Sunnydale fairly quickly, but you did explain the reason, and it's a good way to narrow down your Sunnydale characters to Joyce and Dawn.

I really loved the the whole tone of the chapter, light and flirting. And Cute! did I mention cute? Anyway, looking forward to more.

Oh! also nice to see a Jack/Joyce story, instead of pairing him with eg. Buffy. More original.

Review of chapter "New Beginnings" from raven
Review:
Love the idea of Jack/Joyce, don't think I've read one with them together before. Your Jack was spot on and your Joyce was quite charming, but Dawn seemed a bit off. Bit surprised after all she's gone through that she didn't ask him for his number-or even his full name to run a check. Liked the "chili can thief" line, very Jack.
Comments from author:
I probably should have made it a bit more clear about when this takes place, between seasons 5 and 6. I'd thought about having Dawn ask those things, but then realized that this is before the Halloween epidsode, and before 'Once More, With Feeling.' She has been through the whole Glory thing, and yet is still a teenager. If she had asked for Jack's number, she would have had to wait longer as he might have asked her some questions... which for a teenager would be too embaressing. Thanks for bringing it up though, I truly apreciate the feedback on the characterizations, as it helps me to keep them more believable!

Review of chapter "New Beginnings" from PaulineE
Review:
WOW - a promising start !! Loved the way Dawn just went up to Jack and did the whole babbling introduction. Very Nice.

I also like the 'different' pairing of Jack and Joyce. Don't think I've come across that one before - am looking forward to reading where you go with this !!
Comments from author:
Thank you :-) I'm waiting to see where my muses go with this. Actually I have a lot plotted out already, so I hope I don't disapoint you.

Review of chapter "New Beginnings" from Jill
Review:
Oooh, good idea! I find Jack/Buffy just a little squicky because of the age thing, but Jack/Joyce would be perfect.
Comments from author:
I had been thinking the same thing, and this idea was playing in the back of my mind, but I wanted to find a way to integrate them with as little damage to each universe as I could, Thanks for the review!
