| Wilypeaches chapter 32 . 9/24/2017
I really enjoyed the plot, characterization and even the action scenes. I'm not usually all that into fight scenes but the first Illyria vs Glory throw down was awesome. It was really riveting how you constructed the final battle. I'm looking forward to the next story in the series.

Awesome. Well researched and executed. The dialogue sounded like the actual characters.

Well, since you asked so nicely for a review...
It was great :)
Quite enjoyable. Is ILyria a character from Angel of from the canon comics that came after season 7? (I've only watched btvs, though doing Angel is on my todo list)

Fun story; I finished it up instead of finishing my workday, which I'm going to have to pay for by working stupid late.
Couple SpaG things:
- "spun around", not "span around"
- "was standing", not "was stood"
- "was sitting", not "was sat"
I really liked the idea that the Scoobies *finally* clued up and started using modern weaponry. "The power of the builder" was hilarious, and I'm glad Xander got to be badass. Once again it was a very "why didn't they do that on the show?" moment. Having Glory come back was a really good move - she was about the only thing that could give Illyria a challenge and it was important that Illyria have some reasonable opposition. In some ways I wish Glory hadn't lost so fast; I'm concerned that Illyria is going to be the "we win" button from now on, but if you bring the Senior Partners in that won't be a problem. Leaving that aside, watching Glory fetch drinks and clean floors is too funny not to have happen, and the possibility of rebellion and escapeasskicking will add nice tension.
Only thing I thought was off was Spike still having to die using the amulet. Since the reader knows that he's going to come back, it lacks the impact that it had on the show and just becomes a somewhat cheap / cheezy win for Team Slayer. I would have preferred a smarter solution - for example, blow up the school to let sunlight down through the seal, then use mirrors to bounce it around and fry the Turok-Hai. And the final battle could have been more tense...the good guys were never in any real danger. That said, the battle itself was enough fun that it was still worth reading.
I'm looking forward to reading the next story...I just have to finish my workday first. :)

It was a great story, I enjoyed every moment of it however the only setback in my opinion was that Glory should've had a better ending. She should have been in the final battle fighting Illyria but overall fantastic!

This is a fantastic story that shares much of the same irreverence that made Buffy and Angel awesome. I highly recomend this to anyone who enjoys Joss's original work.

I never thought I'd feel sorry for Manners but the job of keeping Glory and The First from each other's throats long enough to do the job is going to make him wish he was still in hell!
