Jonathan, as the only one in the bunch still presentable in public, was tasked to go into the convenience store and buy a few essentials - ice, Ziploc baggies, a few snacks, and a box of Band-aids
AHAHHA! Great beginning to the chapter. We love Jonathan by this point, and the intro is so wonderfully random that its gorgeous.
mental note: Jonathan, another character I remember missing as this story proceedes. Except - isn't this the one with Ethan also being kidnapped? Okay, so he's in it later on. So many characters to keep track of! You do a brilliant job with it - really - I just love Jonathan and Spike especially. ;-)
Enjoyed the rest of the chappy immensely. Change nothing is my vote again. Really - its brilliant. Fred is perfect and so is Gunn. But Lorne, as always, steals the show.

Ah, I love Lilah. She's so ... wiley. (Rejecting this demon could be a risky proposition. What else might he know? And who would he *tell*, more importantly?)
Several favourite lines here, many of which (for my own sheer pleasure) I shall enjoy:
"out to seven million, four hundred thousand US dollars, all of which had been neatly packed in an overlarge briefcase for her tactile enjoyment."
snicker. I can see why that'd be so much more satisfying then a cheque.
"Ask Holtz. Oh wait, you can't; gee, I wonder why that is."
AHAHAhaa! This is just funny because it shows Sahghan's character off so well (oh, time for revelation - I never actually watched any full season of Angel before the last two. Besides that, I'm going on random ep's only. So I don't actually know if Sahjhan was a character on Angel, but no matter - he's cool here).
The mention of Spike here grabs me, because I love him so much. But is he really in the rest of the story? I know he's in the beginning, then I thought he got kinda lost for a bit. Of course, this isn't completed, so maybe you had plans for him that this chapter hints at.
Final Opinion: Change nothing. This chappy is brilliant, and deserves to exist as a testiment of your glory.

Ah, another glimpse at characters we love. Most especially enjoyed Dawn here. And Cordy. (:: momentary weeping for the loss of Cordy in the real Angel ::) Giles getting *so* angry seemed a little off, but I guess you have to reinforce the whole "he's an elemental, hence the green sparks" thing. Tara seemed a little carpet-ish to Willow, but it came off okay because the readers know her character and mettle.
Xander was certainly *your* Xander (post-spell thing Xander) and not entirely BtVS ICC. But hey - that's what fan fiction is for, and I love this post-spell X-man.
All in all - I'd say re-read the chappy if you like, but overall its good. Especially the snappy dialogue.

An excellent beginning! Really enjoyed this intro - and can't help but raise an eyebrow (if I could actually manage that trick - damn!) at the name "Percy". Really enjoyed Travers here .. craggy and old school, but just a hint of possible redemption. Makes him more of a real character.
My vote: change nothing. 'Tis good.

Wow - I just read the entirity of your "lesser men" series and loved every moment of it. It kept me functional all night while I did growth curves! But I see that you've ended it - and that's too bad, but it really was an excellent set of stories. really really good. Even if we lost "Junior Chaos" a little near the end there. Love your writing though, and I'm going to favouritize you in teh hopes that you continue writing, even if its short snipits again.

But.. But, but.. It just stops. There's no more.. Where's the rest of it? What happened? It was getting so good, into it's niche with a side of serious-groove-working, and then it just stops.
Well that sucks.
Especially after reading the two prequels prior, with all the interludes in betwixt the three tales, and getting completely immersed in the refreshingly-wildly AU plotline with the still-oh-so-very-canon characters. All in one day. The story in it's entirety is just so completely and utterly awesome, that I'm hoping beyond most reason that even though you've not updated this for about a year-and-a-half, that your lovely muse will once again sing it's songs for you.
| Chris chapter 17 . 7/28/2005
Please, Please, Please finish this. It is really good. I love the way you brought in some of the lesser used characters like Jonathan and Gavin. I am also a big fan of Faith and Ethan. I think they were poorly used by Joss. Pretty Please?

Salutations from the sunny (and sweltering) Solent! Just found your 'Lesser Men' series, and wanted to say that a) this is great stuff and b) please continue! Also, do you have any advice on fanfic series writing? I'm looking into doing one next year (the first fic will take yonks to get to the point where the second and third ones can run in parallel). Looking forward to the next part,

I have just read all your 'Lesser Men' writings over the last few days. Please write more soon, I'm absolutely hooked. I can't wait to find out how you're going to tie it all up. Thankyou.

while i'm going into serious withdrawal after this further digression from the main arc, i'm glad to see you post again. (was starting to think you might have fallen down as deep a hole as i have _~ ) having missed most of Angel's 3rd season, i'm not too familiar with Gavin Park... but i do always remember him winning by invoking his patrons, and it's fun to see him get by on his own merits.
| Darklady chapter 17 . 1/31/2004
Great to see this going forward. You *do* know how to spin a plotline. Fine work.
I hope for more soon.
There will be - right?

| Delemehr Meyer chapter 16 . 10/6/2003
i would have reviewed sooner, but it's been a week since i could access .
looks like the action's staring, and i'm really looking foreward to that.
i'm also curious to see where you take Kennedy (a character who, like Anya, i don't usually like).
