goodness, this was a really solid read, i was riveted. it's a very original idea and so well executed. the tragedy implied is so intriguing--willow is now cursed but being so powerful--and a vampire--it's possible she may live forever with this fate. it's practically mythic. wow! ~elizabeth!

wow, this keeps dev. really well--twists and turns, but in a good way. strong character portrayals and some great interactions, dawn-wil, wil-ken, buffy, tara-anya, etc. anya entirely cracks me up, and i was laffing outloud at her mormon crack for a few minutes! :D lots of good intrigue, and solid pacing. will look forward to more! ~m!

Author's Response: Thanks for the great review from a great author herself. Hee hee...glad you like my sick sense of humor (Anya is really just a funnel for everything I wish I could say!). Hope you'll stick around for more...(and write some more yourself, hint, hint).

Date: 22/12/03 Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11: Reunion

i have just laughed outloud at *both* of anya's lines! love your inner anya. :) a very moving, and rather sensually described, reunion. if i didn't have a head cold, maybe i could think of a better word than 'sensual'. naw. looking forward to the completion of the scooby gang with xander and the further mystery of the evil witches! ~m!

Author's Response: Glad to hear my Anya still pleases :) And "sensual" is the best compliment I could have hoped for on that chapter - it's what I was hoping to accomplish, just wasn't sure I was up to snuff for it. Thanks, as always, for reading!

i've really enjoyed this! a really excellent, dangerous vamp willow but with the possibility for complex emotions--her interactions with the weregirl were so satisfyingly like this amoral character. i look forward to experiencing how she's going to fit herself further into this world, or how she may/may not change herself in order to do so. very cool! ~m!

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind words. I love a good Vamp Willow read myself.

this was a fun chapter! kept laughing at the one liners, espec. the 'retarded slayer' crack. love everyone's characterizations, human wil, this world's buffy. buffy and xander's remarks about vamp wil being eternally 17 was right on. thanks for the great read!

Author's Response: Thanks for the great feedback. That thought actually came to me in the middle of writing the first chapter when Rue supposedly mistakes the Willows. Our Willow is going to keep aging, so except in season three stories, they will never be twins again.

a remarkably beautiful, moving start for the theme of the kept mortal woman within a vampire family. i had to immediately look for my repro copy of Ingres' 'la grande odalisque' and my personal fav. along this theme, manet's 'olympia'. i look forward to how the story will further unfold for this kind of very brave and sympathetic willow. ~m

Author's Response: I had to look up the Manet painting, I wasn't familiar with it. I like the Leighton Odalisque and Light of the Harem, as well as the Delacroix Odalisque. I owe a tremendous debt to a high school English teacher who used to bring in art prints and challenge us to work them into essays and short shories for extra credit. Looking to art for inspiration has become a lifetime habit, and thanks to the web there are wonderful art resources a google away.

this has really been darkly enchanting, and there is such a tenuous balance between soft acts and the ever present threat and actual execution of vampire violence. willow's last line here, in chapt. 4, has a double meaning (at least one i suspect) that is so very poignant. brava, and looking forward to more of this tale. well woven! ~m

Author's Response: I'm glad that you are enjoying this. I wrote a huge chunk of this in a two day jag in December, so while I'd love to pretend that this was all masterfully plotted and executed, it is pretty much the drabble that wouldn't die.

cont. to very much enjoy this story, for all its aspects--historic. content, in depth characterizations, backstory with willow and the Fanged Four, and their family interactions. this 'domestic' portrayal of the Family and its relationship dynamics among the five members is a story aspect i am really enjoying. and this summation of willow's life with them: !!

Series

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.
