LOL! Great ending! I totally did not see that coming.
I think that you did a fantastic job portraying the characters under the circumstances. All of the dialogue was a near perfect compliment to the original program - everybody sounded exactly like themselves, and behaved accordingly. This was very enjoyable to read - thanks so much for sharing it.

good Giles is helping Faith, but I think Faith has a few words with Xander soon :)
ahh good the air is cleaned between F & X, now only Willow has to work through that, but such is the
prize of spying on your friends:)
I wonder if Willow really is over X now and will help them.
good Oz didn't see that :)

I was going to bed two hours ago! And now I'm still awake, because this story was awesome! I really enjoyed it, even though it's a really unusual pairing that I wouldn't have expected to work.

A well written story with a rather fresh idea

I was cryin' at the hospital part.
Second ever fanfic to make me cry.
I don't usually go for the drama stories but I took a stab at this one and it's been awesome so far.

A beautiful Faith/Xander story, which is written fairly well in character with canon. What would've happened if Faith had gotten pregnant (or thought she had)?
Both of them have got quite complex neuroses about their parents, and I think you've written that interaction really well. Faith's cynicism and suspicion of Xander right up until the end is also really well written.
The only thing I'd criticize is that there's not much emphasis on the changes to the plot caused by Faith not going bad-I'd have loved to have read some of the sequences glossed over during the conclusion-although I really enjoyed the Mayor's good-natured admittance of defeat. What a villain...
Good job. Definitely worth the read.

Short, but HIGHLY effective; nice bit of work.
From the moment that Faith and Xander had their first meeting in this story, the potential was laid for a rather intriguing bit of work, and later events just proved it.
The idea of Xander’s presence preventing Faith making her biggest mistake might have been simple, but it was also rather interesting to see how the group’s bonds developed from that point onwards; Willow’s new friendship with Faith was particularly effective example of the new dynamics created by this new shift in their relationship.
Not ENTIRELY certain about the idea of the gang being that comfortable about leaving the Mayor hanging around when they know what he was trying to become, but on the other hand, he WAS always the Scoobies’s most ‘polite’ villain, so I suppose his decision makes a certain sense (As much as anything involving that guy made sense).
And as for the resolution of the Xander/Faith situation…
Kind of sad that they DIDN’T get the kid in the end, but as they said, they weren’t ready for it, and at least what they FELT during the ‘pregnancy’ was still real (Plus, of course, it doesn’t detract from the speech Xander gave to Faith when he was doped up on morphine).
Keep up the good work!

You've just made me see the light. Xander and Faith are so great. And so was this story.
| RngrThorne chapter 18 . 7/31/2009
Interesting story. While it would have been fun to see the problems Faith actually having the baby would have caused having them have the heartbreak of not having it probably brought them closer together. Of course, they got lucky that their second time didn't create a rug-rat!
