Review of chapter "Giles'" from (Past Donor)JoeHundredaire
Actually, I wasn't going to say anything until I looked at your author page, and realized your only other fic also involved Xander and suicide. That's... not really normal. One suicide fic and a bunch of normals would be a venting or release or something, this... it makes me wonder if you do need some sort of psychological help, because this just screams 'cry for help' to me.

Believe me, I've been there. Right before I walked out in front of a car.

Review of chapter "Trying to Leave" from devilangel
I just wanted to say that I totally understand where you are coming from. If it wasn't for fanfiction, music and books I would have already died from an OD. I am not trying to depress you any more but I thought that if you knew someone else is going through the same thing it might help you become less depressed. Lots of hugs and understanding,
Comments from author:
your note made me a little giddy. first of all--another heather! i am one of about 4 i have ever met. second--it feels so, so good to get support. not just the "i'm your friend" kind but the "i don't just know the meaning of depression, i also understand the effect." it's so rare. thank you!

Review of chapter "Trying to Leave" from mhogiemh
I really like it so far, and I hope to read more soon. Xander always struck a chord with me because of how human he is, how, more than the others, he's had a lot more unpleasantness handed to him that he's just had to deal with as a normal person, no superpowers to rely on, and you really captured a lot of that aspect of him. He was always representative of the regular average guy, with all the faults and problems of a normal human being in extraordinary circumstances. It works!

Yes, it's dark, but sometimes, the best stories are.

I hope to read more soon!!

Review of chapter "Trying to Leave" from Caliadragon
I really enjoyed the beginning of this fic and I hope that something can be done to help Xander make it through the pain that is tearing him apart. I also hope that you feel better as well. I suffer from depression myself and I know what an up hill battle it is.

Thanks and more soon I hope.

Review of chapter "Trying to Leave" from Lurker
A lot of people have written dark fic about Xander. People understand the fact there there would be more emotional fall out to his life on the hellmouth. You have done an excellent job of making his character more real. It is all too easy to see this side of him under the zany zeppo mask. It is all too easy to see it coming to the surface.

They say that great writers write what they know and are able to make it real on the page. They are able to bring the reader in and touch them, make them feel what the character feels, see what the character sees. You just did that. Keep up the good work. I'll be reading this story, dark or not.

Review of chapter "Trying to Leave" from tals
You're right, it is a very angsty story, but you warned us... I like Spike's dialogue, it's sounds like him. (with the 'whelp' and so on) Also I just love stargate crossovers at the moment so I can't wait to see what happens next.

And I hope you'll feel better writing this story and getting some stuff out. (I know I use writing like that, it's really terapeutic, and it's fun being able to create this world of your own.) Hope it'll put a smile on your face.

Review of chapter "Trying to Leave" from Dawnlady
It really is a dark fic,
but I like the way you are going into it. and I wanted to read more of it.
a good characterstudy of the Xander I am picturing with all the abuse from his parents and his friends looking down on him
I wondered more than once why the canon Xander didn't broke
