Review of chapter "Introductions" from ElaineRhodes
Review:
Anothe great chapter. I like Xander's assessment of the Alliance - accurate, yet snarky at the same time.

"Whole bundle of strangeness, this Xander." - Yeah, but that's why we love him!

Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
*grin* Thanks! Xander might not be Willow, but he has a definite level of seeing into things and summing them up. Glad you're enjoying!

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from WriteTheGoodWrite
Review:
Hahaha!!! Great chapter. I think you hit all the characters dead on... but you might wanna make some of the mechanical text a bit more clear. Ya know: just the basic speech and sentance structure and such. But it's coming along great! Continue pleasy!!!

Post soon!

Yeah, I might have to slow down updates here or even wait till Dec, when NaNoWriMo's over so I have a bit more time to edit. I've only been giving everything a once over, and it's really not enough. But with the time limit, I don't have time for a lot more. Maybe I'll just post to my LJ till I have time to thoroughly edit.

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from (Recent Donor)DonSample
Review:
How does Mal know that Xander recognized River? Xander never says anything about recognizing her, and Mal wasn't present when he reacted to seeing her.
Comments from author:
Well, the thing of it is, since the chapter was from Xander's PoV and he didn't notice Mal noticing, it's hard to say exactly when Mal noticed. Or even if he really did -- he might have been bluffing and Xander didn't call it long enough.

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from Caliadragon
Review:
I love River and her reactions to Xander. Somehow I have a feeling those two will become very close.

Thanks
Calia
Comments from author:
I love River. I think I'm maybe writing her a touch too sane at this point, but it'll work out... Thanks!

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from Duchess
Review:
LOL Xander gets to stay, not be tossed out the airlock and allowed up to go pee before wetting his pants in front of everyone. Excellent! *still giggling* I am most certainly looking forward to more. :)

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from ElaineRhodes
Review:
Have I mentioned that I love this story?

Now I can't wait for Xander to meet Book - he so has that Watcher vibe goin' on!
Comments from author:
You may have, but I never get sick of hearing it;) Yeah, it's going to be a little while before he meets Book, since he's already left Serenity, but it'll come...

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from Waterfall
Review:
Oh - oh my! That chapter just screamed "Xander" the whole way through! Completely dead on characterisation both in this chapter and the earlier ones, and also very funny... I had to be careful so I didn't laugh too loud.

Also, Xander's reaction to Mal/Caleb was wonderfully done, and very beliavable. I'm looking forward to reading more of this, so keep up the good work! :~)
Comments from author:
*laugh* This chapter was a ball to write -- glad the characterization rang true. Thanks much and glad you're enjoying it!

Review of chapter "A Couple Drinks" from banner
Review:
Where did X get his eye?
I'm loving this story, and thank you for updating so quickly.

Great job.
Comments from author:
That'll come out in time... Thanks! Glad you're enjoying it, and the updates should continue quickly since it's for NaNoWriMo -- 50k words in 30 days.

Review of chapter "Identities, Mistaken and Otherwise" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Mmm... bit of a tease in a story beat. But I'm guessing Hawaiian shirt guy is Wash (Walsh?) or they have a passenger. Enjoying the characterization and the dialog, but feeling a bit of a cliff-hanger on the chapter ending.
Comments from author:
Yeah, it's Wash -- using descriptions because the chapter was from Xander's pov and he doesn't know any of the names. Really? I thought the cliffhanger was worse on chapter 5, but I'll post 7 tomorrow so the wait won't be too long. I find that it's really hard not to leave cliffhangers with such short chapters, but with needing to hit all the prompts, I can't do the longer ones. Glad you're liking everything else, though!

Review of chapter "Familiar Stranger" from Caliadragon
Review:
I love this, and Jayne is right about the pure terror that Xander was acting on. I look forward to more.

Thanks

Review of chapter "Familiar Stranger" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Good tension and resolution. Good recognition of casting. Good thing Xander didn't see Jasmine (same actoress as Zoe).
Comments from author:
Thanks! Yeah, I'm just as glad I don't have to play wiht the Jasmine/Zoe thing, though Mal/Caleb I had more fun with than I probably ought to have -- I felt a bit guilty writing the scene, actually, cuz it just seems so cheesy... But it was so much fun *laugh*

Review of chapter "Familiar Stranger" from Duchess
Review:
I'll have to read more of this in order to give it a rating I'm comfortable with, but I'm certainly liking it so far and looking forward to more. :)

How ARE they gonna convince Xander that Mal isn't the one who poked out his eye? Somehow I doubt the time difference is going to make much of a dent in his emotional upheaval. I wish them luck, especially since I don't want Mal throwing him out the airlock! *vbg*
Comments from author:
I look forward to seeing what I wind up earning! Glad you're enjoying it thus far, and I hope you continue to. Time... not so much, given how many immortal or practically-imortal things Xander's known. But things'll work out... Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Familiar Stranger" from ElaineRhodes
Review:
Well, as afraid of Mal as Xander was, I think he earned some points with Simon for trying to protect River from someone Xander thought gouged his eye out.

Please don't leave us hanging - now I really can't wait for the next part.
Comments from author:
Yeah-- Xander's instinct seems to be to protect, no matter how scared he is. Gotta respect that. Hope the next chapter lives up to expectation!

Review of chapter "Familiar Stranger" from banner
Review:
Oops. I forgot about that little complication. Oh, well, once X wakes up, Book can explain that Mal is about as far from clerical as it's possible to get...
Comments from author:
Ah... except that it's post-show, post-comics, and Book is no longer aboard...
