Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 Reviewer: whoser88 Signed
Wow. Thanks for fufilling a fantasy of mine - a Buffyverse that didn't revolve around the character of Spike. I mean, I like JM and Spike as well, but he was just much cooler as a villain. Also, kudos on the ass-kicking future Buffy received. She definitely needed to see how much she was hurting her friends, but without being kicked out of her own house by them and a bunch of people who didn't know her very well (ahem, Kennedy). Bravo, bravo!

Author's Response: *blushes* Thank you so much for the kind words. I prefer Spike as a bad guy, as well. JM was just so much better than playing the love-sick doormat. And Kennedy... let's just not go there, ok? LOL

Seriously, I'm crying. Wow. What a powerful piece. On a brighter note, your characterization is fabulous, and I have such admiration for your ability to write Xander - I can't get his voice right for my life. A beautiful fic, no matter how sad the ending. The metaphors and views into Giles' past were so inventive and moving. A brilliant job.

Author's Response: *L* Really interesting to hear you say that...I always think Xander's the hardest to write...particularly pre-season three and post-season six. Glad to hear you think I pulled it off though! Thank you!

I love really romantic fics like this! They always make me smile and go "awww" - nice job technically with description and the voices of the characters - pretty tight for a first fic!

Title: Chapter 5: Picture Perfect Reviewer: whoser88 Signed
Every time I read this story, I like it more and more. You did such a nice job saving all the BG badness of Season Six! One quick question, though -- when exactly is the story set? Giles hasn't left yet, so one would suppose pre-Tabula Rasa, but you mentioned Xander's and Anya's non-wedding so... Aside from that, I love your writing style and characterization. You made the decisions everyone makes seem natural, and Buffy was actually portrayed with intelligence! Woo hoo!

Beautifully written, as always. It's interesting when someone weaves the movie and the show together - plus elaboration on Giles' pasts is always a good read. I loved the irony at the end. Ah well, perhaps the "poor sod" who got that lost slayer shouldn't be pitied after all?

Summary: Five things that might have happened, but didn’t. For the B/G open ficathon; request was an AU season 3 where Angel never came back, privacy, training, Giles impressed by Buffy’s brains, not too much angst. The title’s from a Fleur Adcock poem.

Title: Chapter 1: Once, As He Remembered, All Was Singing Reviewer: whoser88 Signed
I'm appalled no one else has reviewed this yet -- a wonderfully written, eloquent piece. I love how you manage to convey so many emotions with so few words, especially in terms of dialogue. An interesting look at S3 and the things we didn't see.
