Review of chapter "Candlelight: Two" from Hecatonchires
Review:
Hmm. It looks like this Buffy never got over being ripped from Heaven.

Review of chapter "Candlelight: Two" from GreenKey
Review:
Somehow this fic has worked its way into one of my top favourites. Seriously, you have a gift. Normally I wait until the end of a story to decide if it's a keeper, but I can't help myself with Candlelight. It really shows the empathy Buffy is capable of, and I enjoy seeing her more human vulnerability that Joss seemed to forget about.

Rafael is good for her, I think. Their responsibilities and abilities complement the other to a point where, if they end up as a couple, they could function as a cohesive unit. Both have a higher calling that they cannot escape which is sometimes very taxing, both have loads of people depending on them...not to mention that neither would have to worry about injuring the other.

Sorry if I'm gushing to much, I just really like this fic. Honestly? My only complaint is that I have to wait for more! Keep it coming, please.

Review of chapter "Candlelight: Two" from LadyRowan
Review:
How very sad. Both of them doing their duties, when they want to be together. I do hope you will continue the story.

Review of chapter "Candlelight: Two" from kaycee
Review:
Another touching chapter. The emotions you have written here are very vivid and believable. I eagerly await a new installment and if Buffy will reveal to Raphael who and what she is? Can he save her?

Review of chapter "Candlelight: Prologue" from kaycee
Review:
Excellent story idea. I love AB and Buffy xovers but usually they don't feature Buffy. Two very interesting characters, I am anxious to see where this leads, I can think of some threads you left in your other story Mind The Gap where you might tie Buffy into St. Louis. Very well written, the imagery in the Church was lovely.

Review of chapter "Candlelight: One" from (Past Donor)Catlimere
Review:
I am so glad to see you adding more to this story. I loved the first part, the meeting between Rafael and Buffy and was so hoping you'd develop it more.
I like the pairing very much, love the way they relate to each other, the connection, the definite passion sparking, and the tenderness not too far from the surface. They both share the need to connect with someone, I like the idea of them connecting with each other. Loved the appearances of Rafael's bodyguards and Buffy's instinctive reaction to them, and the way they reacted to her was well done. I am hoping that Rafael and Buffy manage to find some happiness. I am looking forward to reading more.

Review of chapter "Candlelight: One" from Calex
Review:
I adore this. I've said before, I think, but I do. So much so. This is darker, more sensual compared to MtG, but... I don't usually like Buffy, not after season 2, but you've made me like her, in this, so much. You made me feel sorry for her, and hope that those two would work it out, somehow. I certainly hope she tells Rafael what she does for a living, who she is. She certainly can't hide her identity forever, and I think she underestimates Rafael. Maybe in him knowing, they would work out better, because in him knowing what she is, who she is, he might feel like less of a monster, that maybe in what she does, she would be able to accept what they are, together.

Your Buffy was strong without being overbearing, caring. You show a side of her that many a fanfic writer either over-exaggerates, or leaves out completely. You've made her human with feelings, you made her hurt and care. And Rafael... so beautiful. You've captured a soul for him that I never really managed to grasp from reading the books. Rafael is so hurt, has been so hurt and maybe he's a little like Richard, in that. In what he thinks of what he is. Though not so destructive.

I really enjoyed this, very much so and can't wait for the next part.

Review of chapter "Candlelight: One" from Emmy
Review:
I suppose virtually stomping my foot and demanding more "right now" like a spoiled child would be a bit rude, so I'll settle for telling you how marvelous a job you have done thus far. Rafael is one of my favorite AB characters and I absolutely love the way you're writing him. Buffy is an interesting choice, pairing wise, and I can't wait to see where this all leads.

Wonderful job.

Smiles, Emmy

Review of chapter "Candlelight: One" from Lianne
Review:
This story is so...I guess "provocative" is the only word I can think of to describe it. Wow. I'm on the edge of my seat, and only one chapter in. I don't think I've ever read a Rafael-centric fic before, but you've already managed to make him come alive. I can't wait to see what develops between them.
