Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from Gylzgurl
This has got to be the best story I have come accross in a long while and it's definitely one of the best all together. I absolutely love it and am completely devistated that there's not more written of it. I want to read more. You just can't leave the story hanging like that. That's just wrong. I personally am waiting for Willow to make the connection about Lorn calling Buffy the Chosen and the slayers previously being called the chosen. She needs to do some confronting. Please update soon. I can hardly wait

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from (Past Donor)exiled
I hate cliffhangers. I just wanted to get that out in the open first thing.

I really like how you put this story together, you don't waste time with long drawn out explanations of how Buffy got there or where she got the money to live until she got a job. You gave a logically concise explanation and then moved onto the meat of the story.

I like how you are were (before you so viciously abandoned the tale) showing the differences in "real" world Willow and the AU Willow. How you have Buffy pretty much clueless about her own emotions because of her pain. The differences in Dawn are very logical for her to have considering she's the slayer.

I love the plot. You've set up so many things that you could almost go in any direction with it.

Thank you for sharing your time and talent.
Comments from author:
I haven't abandoned this story. Really :-). I'm just having writers block/plotting issues with some of the scenes in the next 5 chapters/section. It was supposed to be almost all action but that's not how it's turning out so far.

Sorry about the cliffhanger. I try to avoid those also. I promise it won't happen again. Maybe. :-).

I hope to get back to it soon. Thanks for the encouragement.

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Cool :)

Heisenberg? Nice. I wonder if Willow will recognize the principle.

Communication, cool. I wonder what will happen next. Oooh, maybe the thunderclap was Dawn I dying and sending her keyness to this Dawn. Or not :)

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from Wolfkin
Okay, just found this and read it and I really like it, but it's been so long since you updated. Any chance of a new chapter or 3 any time soon? I wanna see if I'm right about who the sorcerer is. I also wanna see more interaction between Buffy and Beth.
Comments from author:
Well... I'm working on something else right now but as soon as I finish it this story is next. I really want to get this finished.

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from (Past Donor)Aynot
Sorry, somehow I did not review this before. This chapter is another very nicely written one. It also has some more mystery, a bit of sexual tension, and the beginnings of the action (fight type). Yes! :-) ...but of course I am eagerly awaiting the un-veiling of some (or all) of Buffy's secrets. Oh, and of course some romancing between Buffy and Willow. UPDATE SOON PLEASE!!! PLEASE!?!

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from CPTSkip
Sorry this review is so late, but I wanted to reread your entire story. Excellent update to one of my favorite stories. I like your Buffy and your alternate-Willow is just neat. I also like your alternate-Dawn. She is an odd combination of innocent teen Dawn and Slayer, but I like her a lot. I still have no idea of what is going on, but I think Richard Wilkins is in on whatever it is somehow. I'm glad you are updating this story again and look forward to the next update with a great deal of anticipation.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the comments. It's really a simple story. Really :-).

Just your basic 'girl from a different dimension meets girl with a destiny' with a side order of 'girl helps girl during the annual apocalypse season' - ending with a small dose of 'will she stay or go home' angst. But with dark wizards and vampires. :-).

Every apocalypse story needs a villain. The hard part is getting everyone in the same room for the apocalypse. I just wish I could have found a way to include Faith in this story. That would have added a nice tough of Buffy angst.

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from (Moderator)Saturn
This has been one of the most unique "Buffy ends up in another place" stories I have read. Definitely enjoying it. Can't wait for the next chapter...well except I actually can, I just don't want to. :)

Review of chapter "The Apocalypse Blues" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Not a bad read, like the whole Alternate universe thing, very good.

Only bad point was I found it a bit slow in parts, I found myself skimming instead of reading properly, but that likely just me! I shall be watching for updates.
All the best,
Dave T.

Thanks for the comments.

(Slow for the whole thing or slow for this newest part?)

I originally wrote the 1st 12 parts between November 2003-October 2004. It's my first real/long fic. ( "Girl in a Bar" is my first long crossover and I started that about a month later.) I spent approx. the next year tweaking/revising that. (And again before posting it to here this past January.). The first part of Chapter 13 (the Buffy-angst part) dates back a year. The rest of it is new (in the last month or two). My writing style has changed a bit since then (I like to think for the better but that's just my opinion :-)). If you compare this story to one of my newer ones, like "Where the Books Are", the differences in style should be clear.

This is a very transitional chapter. We're moving from the slow pace of the last 12 parts to a very action oriented 6 parts ( the requisite apocalypse) and then we'll be back into some more relationship-ish material for the last 6 parts of the story. (I planned the story out in 4 major "chapters" - 6 parts each. It's only halfway done at this point.)

Hopefully you'll stick with it to the end :-).

Review of chapter "Season Opener" from (Past Donor)Aynot
OH MY GODS!!! I just discovered this story and it is a tremendously fabulous story and a extremely well written at that. The Plot is totally different from any other 'Buffy' story I have read. Things that I like about the story, the two different dimensions/realities differences and similarities are noticeable but the characters are still themselves, even with Beth(what has been seen of her so far), what has been shown of our Slayer Buffy, how her emotions and reaction are being "true-to-life", that there is no Council, I love the Slayer differences and above all I love the Mysteries that are going on. ...I suppose I should stop before I list everything. :-) On another note, It is an absolute Moral Imperative that your continue with this story and as soon as humanly possible; Real Life allowing I hope that this means sometime this week, because if you take to long to update, you will drive me insane with the wait. :-)
Comments from author:
Thanks for the enthusiastic comments :).

I have so many other fics in the works that I really can't promise to update one before another. Whatever one I'm inspired to work on gets my attention at that moment.

That being said... I really hope to finish this one this year %-). It's really my oldest fic (though only recently posted here) and really deserves an ending.

Review of chapter "Field Trip" from arkeus
Very good, sad you have so few reviews. like the whole buffy/Willow thing, but a bit disappointed that she is not super willow. Was that lorne?
Comments from author:
Yes. That is Lorne. The assumption here is that Buffy never met him (In canon she didn't) though she might have heard about places like his club.

The "super-Willow" thing... this IS an AU Willow. None of the things that made "our" Willow "super" or "dark" have happened to this Willow. So it doesn't make sense to "power her up" so to speak.

Thanks for the comments.
