Interesting concept, the Drabble. The short length forces you to get to the core of your intent with very little else. While I normally prefer something more novel-like, you have managed to communicate a lot in a very short time. Joss Whedon himself said that one of the best things to do is create the moments of meaning(paraphrasing here). You have created nothing but.
As to the subject matter, yes it is a VERY Xander thing to have happen... The rocket launcher bit was perfect.

It doesn't get any better, I see. Sadly. Are all 57 chapters like this? I'm not sure I want to read on to find out.
| anon chapter 1 . 11/25/2009
I'm going to read the second chapter next, and hope it is much longer than this. But really, great concept, poor execution. Why so short? Look at all the places it can use fleshing out. Remember, Show - Don't Tell! Telling is taking the lazy cop out approach.
That said, it is a good idea. Hopefully the next chapter and the later ones do it justice.

Kami-sama is Japanese for God

Kami-sama's intervened, he must be really unhappy.

keep up the good work.
Opinions are like assholes.
Everyone has one - but some just smell worse than others.

I really liked this story, short chapters, gets me, joking. Anyways, the sequel name, to me anyways should be
"For the love of a Xander"

I think the story is absolutely adorable and I will read the other story as soon as I can. I'll be adding you to my favorites list.

I would like to suggest. . .For the life of a mortal. . .as the title for the sequel which I am eagerly awaiting! ! !
Something about Aleh's last review I thought that you might find amusing (Aleh's review is in all caps with my response in regular). . .IT'S A CASE OF YOU BEING TOO LAZY TO CHECK. (yes, sure. . .this is the case, but I know a few people with dyslexia that is far worse than yours and their writing is a lot worse too, but still not as bad as Aleh's). IN YOUR CASE, YOU SHOULD EITHER USE A DICTIONARY TO DOUBLE-CHECK YOUR SPELL CHECKER'S SUGGESTIONS OR GET A PREREADER (can you tell me what a PREREADER is? Maybe Aleh means PROOFREADER or even BETA, both of which would bee easier to spell along with being recognised by a spell checker) OR TWO TO CATCH YOUR MISTAKES.
CHECKING THE CURRENT EDITION OF DIAGNOSTIC AND STATISTICAL MANUAL OF MENTAL DISORDERS (the DSM-IV-TR) DID NOTHING TO CONTRAINDICT (doesn't Aleh mean CONTRADICT? ? ?) MY RESPONSE AND, IN FACT, ONLY CONFIRMED THE ABOVE, BY THE WAY. (By the way, Aleh's use of By the way was uneeded and just took up space. It looks to me that Aleh needs to use a beta himself BEFORE he post a review.

I've been reading this, and it's good, though shorter than what I'm used to, so I'm gonna be looking forward to the full length sequel. And I'd like to submit an idea for a title, "Heaven's Beauty and Hell's Glory". Good luck :).

how about waro f the goddesses beldandy versus glory! or what happens when you threaten my fiance! otherwise known as your going to need kami-sama to put your skanky butt back togehter if he can!
loved the full story hopefully it's going to be soon for the sequal! as for aleh if he wants to beta your stories to fix your spelling errors then he can complain otherwise to bad and to hell with him!
| Bobboky chapter 57 . 1/17/2005
I have a question for your the sequel. will glory be a rouge goddess, a high level daemon, or a goddess form a different realm of reality?
Tile Vote(s): Life Divine, With God's Blessing, or Come Heaven or Hell.

It's a case of you being too lazy to check. I know quite a bit about the group of conditions informally known as dyslexia, believe it or not, and have a condition myself which is quite similar in certain respects. In your case, you should either use a dictionary to double-check your spellchecker's suggestions or get a prereader or two to catch your mistakes.
As for how I can claim to know quite a bit about dyslexia? Well, I'm studying psychology at the university level.
Checking the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (the DSM-IV-TR) did nothing to contraindict my response and, in fact, only confirmed the above, by the way.
