Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from Greywizard
Review:
This was definitely a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the Hellmouth influences alters things from what Xander and the others intended. ;-)

Also, loved Oz's new profession and Giles's reaction, and all of the cameos you gave us.

Write fast, please
Comments from author:
If anything the Hellmouth is just going to increase the ease of the spell... that much ambiant energy lowers the personal drain making the individual capable of more. ;)

Review:
Looks good, but Xander is going to need training if he is to make use of his possessions. Memories alone aren't enough.
Comments from author:
Though he will be able to train himself based on the memories and train with Giles to improve whats already there...

HE will know how to fight. It will just be an issue of teaching his BODY to do it... that will take time.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from ElaineRhodes
Review:
Very enjoyable story so far - I hope you update this. I love the friendship & banter (so very missing from the last season of the show!)
Comments from author:
The group dynamics are important in my mind. You have to remember, that the Scoobies are the reason Buffy has survived as long as she has and have been able to take out the enemies she has (it sure hasn't been her tactical insight and judgmental abilities, thats for sure), and when you consider the two spirits that are going to be helping Xander, the Hyena and the Soldier... the Pack/Squad is going to be even more important to him.

Review:
OK Xanders basement is scary. LoL! Love the nods to the Horror movies. Chucky, Jason, Ash and the Cenobites. Very Cool! Looking forward to future installments.
Comments from author:
There are 9 crossovers mentioned or nodded to in all... some of them are rather obscure. ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from AriChanda
Review:
Oh, I like this. I giggled hysterically at every crossover I recognized. And yeah, no wonder the Harris' are drunks. Boy, it's like a house of horrors in that basement. The team dynamics are just great. I always thought there should have been more of an effort/show of them being together. Poor, Giles. Hee! If he only knew. I can't wait for the next update.
Comments from author:
Team dynamics is something I enjoy. :)

As for the basment, really, the only really dangerous thing was the box plans. Xander's Good Guy doll was only named Chucky. To be THE Chucky it would have to be posessed by the spirit of Charles Lee Ray, which its not... ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from Tjin
Review:
to many x-overs, pick one or two and stick with them having several hundred crossovers in a chapter makes the stroy confusing.
Comments from author:
I'm sorry you find it confusing, but it is kinda the point...

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Review:
Definite 11+ - a wonderful tale. Particularly loved Ethan's pleasure at getting the kids to do so many criminal or immoral acts at their own whim, and Oz being all priestified. Fantastic - look forward to many more updates.
Comments from author:
Awe shucks. Glad you like it.

And remember, Ethan is a delinquent. Always has been, always will be. He revels in chaos, and if you're too goodie-goodie, then there is just no fun. He's going to LOVE Faith. ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from Taren
Review:
Man no wonder Xanders parents are Alcoholics. Their basement likely contains more dangerous material than the council vaults.

Did like Giles' reaction to the original plans for the Lament Configuration. Liked the idea of the plans better than having them find a puzzlebox.

Why hasn't good ol' uncle ash ever come by for a visit?

Can't wait to see what kind of twists Ethan puts on the spell.

Disappointed that you couldn't work Cordelia in more, I had the impression that she did accompany them alot with the patrols while Buffy was away.
Comments from author:
Hey now, its the Hellmouth, so I bet everyone's house has atleast something blatently demonic in it... be they zombie masks, puzzle box plans, or Sweating to the Oldies videos...

As for Giles' reaction, good. Its one thing to deal with the big bads trying to end the world. In fact its expected. Its another for the kids to bring in something evil and innocently ask you "whats dat?". Really bad for the heart. ;)

Uncle Ash'll show up later.

Ethan was hired to cast the spell. He is a profresional. One does not screw with someone who's actually PAID. While there will be unexpected twists, they will not be the kind of unexpected twists you'd expect. ;)

As for Cordy, I feel I made it rather clear. She helps in patrol, but most of the events covered in this chapter are not just normal patrol.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from CPTSkip
Review:
I really like your story. It is nice seeing the Scooby Gang in action as a unit. I wish Cordy was there to help, but your Willow, Oz, and Xander are perfect. I even like your Ethan. And the idea of Rev. Oz blessing the Holy Water is shere brilliance. I hope you write fast as I can't wait to see how the spell works. I also can't wait to see how the spell's results sent everyone straight to Hell, hopefully just metiphorically, as I am sure will happen with our intrepid Scoobies. Lol! By the way, I love all the throw away story crosses you just keep tossing in. Excellent work.
Comments from author:
If there is one thing that has always driven me crazy at Buffy, it was the poor team dynamics. It was always about Queen B and her side-kicks, which I feel subtracted from the series. They could have had the Scoobs cover for eachothers flaws, but instead everything was subordinate to the Slayer's ego. So I am glad to like the team dynamics.

As for the reason Cordy is not around, let me explain. To me it has always seemed that Cor never really got into the thick of things till really AtS. Before that she always remained a step away from the Scoobies and a step out of thier world. She might patrol with them, but half the insane scemes they come up with to save the world she really does not want part of, unless it is unavoidable or absolutly nessasary. Also, as they're trying to keep this secret, she's not the best person to tell. Its Xander's plan, Willow would die before betraying Xander, and Oz could give the CIA lessons on keeping tiher mouth's shut. Cor on the otherhand is a loudmouth who'd probelly spill infront of Giles in an argument. So the reason she's not there is because loose lips sink ships, and frankly, do you see her at all interested in grave digging, looking though Xander's basement, breaking into the Zoo, or paying several grand to finance one of the geek's insane plans? I didn't think so. ;)

The idea for the Rev Oz was something that came to me as a random plot idea. I thought it was good so I used it. It also makes Oz a more important and critical team member. He always struck me as being only Willows boyfriend and not an important team member. This makes him VERY important. Willow witches, Giles's watches, Xander hunts, Buffy slays, and Oz blesses. Everyone has thier place, except for Crody, who in all honestly, doesn't really WANT one.

Now, as for how the spell explodes in thier face, it will not be what you're EXPECTING.

And one last comment about all the crossovers... crossovers are like nachos. You can't just have 350. Brownie Points to the person who catches them all.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from Guardian
Review:
Very good start. It'll be interesting to see what powers Xander will get with all the stuff they are putting together. Hope you'll update soon - can't wait to see what'll happen next. Seems like a multiple-x-over story so far?
Comments from author:
Glad you like.

And it will be a multi-xover. Right now its just a truck load of cameos.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Desperate Times…" from Kirallie
Review:
Great start!!! Love the scenes with Ethan! How long will he stick around to observe his work. With all three of those if done like the originals he should be able to take a Slayer no prob. Will you have him that powerful or tone it down since it's Ethan's spell doing it? Hope there's more soon!! Poor Giles. Will he work out who it was who committed the crimes?
