Awesome story, rather like Pretender Xander :)
| Guest chapter 2 . 4/4
Bleeh. The fucckking exposition is clumsy as hell. I mean, goddamn, I got halfway through this chapter before I realized that nothing fucking happened. It wasn't just glimpses here and there, or the actions or expressions. The words or phrases used weren't it, nor the disparity between action and observation. No, it was paragraphs and paragraphs of fucking bullshit exposition, unlinked to anything, providing no real supporting relevance to the story or setting, basically it was an opinion piece in another frame, only more goddamn confusing because I was expecting some sort of story somewhere inside of it and failing to see it.
No real technical issues with the language. Everything read cleanly, and the idea got through for the most part. It was just, aagh! If a drop of the language competence was exchanged for some sort of interesting... anything, I would be happy. Alas, I stand disappointed.

Damn this story was AWESOME. Jarod as Xander's real dad was a great twist. I know it's been YEARS since you updated this story, and that you probably won't come back to this, but I really hope your muse hits you, and you decide to start writing and update this fic again. I feel like it would be a shame if Parker didn't get to know who her son is and what he fights on a daily basis. Plus I would love to see her tell off Tony and Jessica...that would be one HELL of a scene. This story has been nothing short of fantastic with every chapter that I have read and thank you for giving us what you've written already. GREAT JOB!

Jarod as Xander's father fits perfectly. You need to update the story.

interesting chapter, keep up the good work, byes

Yet another great fic from your fertile mind. Somewhat more gruesome, though.
Xander as an uber-pretender, huh. (I've seen some episodes here and there, but I don't consider myself a fan. My soulmate liked it though, so thats a point in it's favour.) I love the various explanations that different writers come up with to explain how he was in the first few series. They're usually quite innovative. It's just a pity they (Joss, WB, Mutant Enemy, etc...) basically abandoned his character towards the end.
Anyway, that's neither here or there. Great story! I hope you come back to it one day. T

Very original crossover. It's quite well done, although it takes the easy way out on several matters.
| WBH21C chapter 14 . 4/16/2008
Great part! I wonder what a transfusion from a pretender would do to a slayer?

Another brilliant job. I like how you've captrued all of the different characters and kept them true to the way they were origianlly written. The action was well done and the character interactions felt true. You have taken an interesting notion and advanced it quite well. The plot is complex without being incomprehensible and all of the story lines are moving well. I was surprised that you would break canon and have Angelo and not Lyle be Parker's sister, but I'm assuming there's a reason for that. Keep up the good work on this and your other stories; I look forward to more of your work.
| poe1911 chapter 13 . 12/28/2007
Wonderful, as always. I'm really enjoying how you've defined the relationships between the characters, especially Ms. Parker with Syd and Broots. Having Broots work with Jarod's sister (or so I assume) is brilliant as is what you've done with Faith. It is one of the best examples I've seen concerning what would happen if Faith had been more accepted when she arrived in Sunnydale. Keep up the great work as I eagerly await your updates.

I love this. Please update soon.
I can just picture Miss Parker walking into the Harris home uninvited and putting a gun to Tony's head. Hee hee.
| Firewolfe chapter 13 . 12/24/2007
I am so glad you finally updated this work. It was a very nice Christmas present.
Thanks. Please keep it coming as it is a very nice and interesting x over. I can hardly wait to see what Miss. Parker does to the center. I almost feel sorry for them. Jared, Miss Parker and Xander all after them and mix in the slayers Faith and Buffy and Willow and Oz and they are toast. Ripper of course will chew them a new one. It will surely be a sight to see. Please more soonest.

WOW! I love the way that you're handling all the different facets of the characters in this story. I can't wait to read more. :)
