|Reviews for Five Things Which Never Happened To Warren|
| thewiggins chapter 1 . 2/1
Such great work! Warren is easily the least likable human character in cannon, but you managed to write him with sympathy and depth, without flattening or removing the darkness of his character.
It took me a bit to realize that all these sections were at least loosely based on movies, probably because I've never seen "Buddy, Buddy". I liked the way that you applied elements of the plot from these films to the Buffyverse in such a naturalistic way, none of them seemed forced or unrealistic. The "Thelma and Luise" one was my favorite. There was just something so subtly heartbreaking about it.

Wow... He had a great future.

Oh wow fantastic! I loved all of this especiall parts I and IV, I like the idea of Warren/Willow. I actually liked Warren as a character, in fact I loved the Trio as a whole but I feel they deserved more characterisation in the series.
Anyway, I love your characterisation of Warren here, he's complex, interesting and wholly believable. Great work!

You pulled out a near-miracle here, making me feel sympathy for Warren - or not sympathy so much as understanding. I think the show could have gone further in fleshing him out but failed to - until TKIM. (the scene where we see Adam Busch as Warren screaming "I'm Sorry!" to Katrina was the first and perhaps only time I felt any sympathy for him in the show itself.)
I was NOT expecting the way you ended this, however. Damn but you're good.
And as I happen to love both the Buffybot and Thelma and Louise, that section was a real treat.

Wow. You've sustained this incredibly well, and each segment is as good as the previous one. Well done, and keep writing! :)

Brilliant! :) Very awesome, as well as very well-written, too. I like it - especially this part:
Unwashed, wild-eyed, and twitchy, he certainly was Jack Torrance material. If Jack Nicholson had been pint-sized and not inclined to smile.
This tells me that Warren had probably seen the 1980 film The Shining (based on the book by Stephen King), and had taken a liking to Jack Nicholson's portrayal of Jack Torrance as well.
Keep up your super-neat, very creative and phenomenally beautiful writing! :)

I read this years ago and loved it then and stumbled across your account while reading B5 fic. This is one of my favorite 'five things' stories and the last one makes me cry. Beautiful.

Wow. You mentioned this on your LJ so I came over to take a look. Really amazing. I'm so glad I had a chance to read it.

Best AUs I have read all day.

Brilliant! It took me ages to get around reading it, but I finally did.
Nice that every drabble starts in a different season.
Perhaps I like #1 the best, because it also changes Willow's future in a drastic, yet perfectly believable way.
The season 4 drabble is perfectly sinister. Professor Walsh is the woman that Warren would want to humiliate and the plan he comes up with to do so could easily be canon.

A great story! The peek you let us readers take at Warren's very complex personality is fascinating. I love how you use these different scenarios to show us various aspects of his personality.
And all these things that never happened could just as well have become reality, it really makes me wonder how different Warren's life would have been if he had made a different decision at this or that point.
The Willow/Warren scenario is my favourite, very cute.
| Nelja chapter 1 . 11/6/2003
I liked it a lot, especially the secund and fifth parts.
Warren could be in character, and he is even more interesting than in the show...
| Briana Marie chapter 1 . 9/24/2003
Wow . . . that last one was pretty wow. These were all really good. I read Honor H's 5 thing that never happened to Dawn, and she mentioned this one, so I decided to read it. They were all really good, I think I liked the first one the best though. (I think magic ruined Willow, so a story where Willow doesn't go into magic is okay by me!)
| lil'vamp chapter 1 . 8/20/2003
I really loved your story. I never liked Warren in canon, but the first two parts made him sympathetic even likable. And the others which were very diverse were still in character for him.
| Cee chapter 1 . 8/16/2003
Oh, I loved this, especially the first, third and fifth parts. The first part was an intriguing idea. Warren and Willow meeting then could have changed how both turned out - Warren might have avoided the descent into the sociopath he became. The third was disturbing and kinda sad. And the fifth had Warren/Andrew so I had to love it. Warren's second chance.
Very cleverly written and one of the best fics I've read recently. Thank you.
