This was lovely. You write the character's dialogues really well! Which is a high compliment when it comes to writing Joss Whedon's characters. I thought this was a great exploration of a 'what if' premise that is no-where near used enough for this fandom. And the way you built it on Will and Xander's relationship was both very satisfying and very truthful to their characters. Nice job!

Wow. What a wonderful story. Thank you from the bottom of my W/X heart.

This story was phenomenal, one of the best truly. I have never read anything in this category like it and for that I am so glad. I adored it. I do so wish there was more too it. Really I adore your writing, I thought the relationship between Willow and Xander was breathtaking and their daughter was such a sweetheart - what little we saw of her. :3

They all sound too nice. As if they're actually still friends and not bitter about everything. Buffy isn't acting like the PTSD'd selfish bitch she was in the later seasons, Xander is acting like he was never treated like horse crap by his so called best friends, and Willow's talking like a real lesbian and not the bad actress lesbian that the totally hot Alyson Hannigan unfortunately was.
Have they been all replaced by pod people?

I hope you add another part to the story or at least a new series. It's very good. :)

Superlatives fail me. An outstanding story. Thank You.
(Yeah, the epilogue is a little icky. I can live with that.)

I like the Angel/Haven storyline. I think you should do a sequal continuing that. I love your story. I thought that Buffy was a bit out of character, though.
| Calen chapter 20 . 12/21/2006
This was a cool fic. Though my biggest complaint is Willow's character. She didn't seem much like the character she grew into on the show. I mean the only Wiccaness you showed her having was that astral stuff! It's one of the things that made her, her in the later seasons. While good I felt that her not being 'in-character' kind of messed with the flow. I did like the W/X close moments tho.
That last chapter with Angel was totally useless, Xander finds out that Angels going to be a pedo with his daughter just like he was with Buffy? Not!Good times at all.

This was such an amazing story! I just got all 7 seasons of Buffy in one box set, and after watching Season 1, I felt that old itch for some Xander/Willow goodness. And this fic more than met the mark. You captured the characters so well, especially Willow's voice, and you did a great job of acknowledging Willow's sexuality issues. I'd personally love to see you make a sequel to this and continue the whole Angel/Haven plotline, because that sounded rather intriguing. But even if you leave it just as it is, the story was wonderful. _

That was perfectly written. I loved your use of dialogue and the various metaphors. Your sentence variation was refreshing and the dialog breaks were dead on. The only teeny tiny bump would be the conversation in the epilogue. For the first half I had quite a difficult time telling who was speaking. It might have been intentional, and if it was, please ignore me.
Other than that, I found your writing incredibly original,well-paced, well thought out, and downright entertaining. Juggling the huge characters of Buffyverse and not having them overshadow one another is a difficult task and you've accomplished that quite well. Although the story was clearly W/X, Buffy, Dawn, Giles, and Angel were all given enough of a role so as not to be discounted. Thanks for Angel at the end btw. I love him and it's always nice to see him as support. Wonderful story.
