I came upon this story when it was rec'd on Xanderzone yahoogroup. while you didn't get the greatest reception there, I for one love this series. I happen to like darker end stories and stories with strong core scooby vibe. The relationship between Buffy, Willow, and Xander is a lot of fun to read about. I think you made only two misteps in the story. First off, the Jenny part of the storyline is very bizare and I'm not sure she fits so far into what you have written. Maybe that will change with future parts (hint, hint) but right now, the parts with her and Giles almost seem like they belong in a different story. The second, I hate to call it a mistep because I don't know how it will pan out, is Cordelia. I didn't quite buy her incorporation into the group at the end of the chapter. She never really seemed like she was part of the inner circle enough to create a strong enough bond to last through the turning. Neither Willow, nor Buffy ever liked her all that much and Xander seemed to get over her pretty swiftly after they broke up. While I can understand and believe in the big three bond that would transcend a vamping, I just don't see how the same can hold true with Cordy. She was always just a little on the outs, more of a hanger on than a genuine group member. Still, once again, we shall see how things pan out. Can't wait to get Giles and Jenny hooking up with the big three and how Cordy is going to enter the beds...umm, I mean, the uhhh, lives of Xander, Buffy, and WIllow :)

The authors own nothing. Joss, UPN, WB, etc. own Buffy, the show, the characters, the places, and the backstory. The authors own any original plots.
