An excellent addition to this story. Wonder what they will think when BUFFY summers shows up next year. And it is interesting that Merrick shows lots of dark magic, is it bleed over from the slayer spirit or something more?
| RockBane chapter 26 . 1/8/2011
Interesting, also glad to see an extreme reaction from Cordelia and her followers. I mean, she's like Buffy before she became a Slayer and we know that ever years afterwords, Buffy still misses being popular.
| Primal Chaos chapter 26 . 1/8/2011
love the story can't wait for the next chapter. oh on a different not when buffy comes and if they do the dream ritual on her i would find it interesting if she was decedent from Ezio from assassin's creed 2 or the ritual was altered because of the demon insider it allowing her to learn from a past slayer who was a assassin one of the few that died of old age or something and out of a 2000 years lets say that has only happened 3 or 4 times out of the 100 plus slayers

...::Feminism now teaches us that punching a girl is the same as punching anyone else. So if they deserve it, sock it to 'em!::...
Bed. Made. Lie.
No buyer's remorse allowed. Women wanted this and are now required to live with the consequences of the society they've created for everyone.
PS: I always thought the chapter in Mirrors where Ranma rips Nabiki a new one was some of your most eloquent writing and credit it as being a major part in helping me leave the Fematrix and towards my journey to becoming a man going his own way. Thanks for that!

was getting a little worried that you were never going to update this fic nice to see it hasn't been abandoned. A good chapter and nice job bringing the plot line closer to real life. i always wondered why the mayor didn't just have buffy arrested for all the damage her actions had on his operation locked her in a cell and tossed away the key while silencing her friends family and associates while she was held out of the way in a place that breaking her out would result in all of them removed from his hair for a very long time under the laws of the very people they were trying to save. (yes yes i know it would have killed the storyline but there's one thing in not investigating crimes you want left unsolved and another in not using the position of power you have and eliminating a threat in a way that they can't legitimately strike back because ironically you the evil person are in the right in the eyes of the law and the people. i mean come on thats gotta be part of evil mastermind 101 use the law to your advantage especially when you are the law.)

It may be noted that your Balrog from Lord of the Rings is about on par with a Sauron, originally at least, as both he and they where lieutenants of their boss. Melkor fallen of the Valar, and original evil of that world. Sauron as one of his lieutenants was Maiar in similar standing to Gandalf, whose group was bound against directly confronting him.
Point is that Sauron, Balrogs, and "Wizards" where minor deities or spirits of power. Your assertion that they could not directly assault it are entirely true as of that point. I won't go into theory of what they, and fire, are but I imagine a decent energy sink would come in handy especially if the design allowed for the redirection of the energy into strengthening the effect.
A bit out of date to be sure but I hope it provides some use.
Aside from I would like to compliment you on your various works as they are both interesting and entertaining.

Nice of yoy to start doing Buffy stories, but i hope you wont abandon Chunin exam day since it was your best hit and it was over 7 months since you uploaded a new chapter.
| MrPowell chapter 26 . 1/6/2011
Excellent work as usual. Can all of them use the caves or just one at a time?
I'll look forward to the next chapter.

I've enioyed the story so far, but your doppelgänger solution feels like a cheat. There is practically no risk for them now. Better to have them invent cantrips to stick their hair, skin and sweat to their bodies for a shirt time. Or make their clothes magically attractive for those substances.
The alibi problem is more challenging, but doable. For a second I thought you were going to make the caves into a limited time turner of sorts. That way they're still risking their lives, but can be in two places at once at will.
| Nartog chapter 26 . 1/5/2011
ok now i feel like an idiot because i have run out of reading material
i wonder if there is any chance that xander will stumble upon another spell for contact with a higher being and meet gandalf or someone like that.
i would like to see more of your story.
| nartog chapter 22 . 1/5/2011
your story like the rest you have writen(and those i have read so far) is unsurpisingly great , expect a favourite later when i reach chapter 26 .
by the way do you plan of incorporating the tolkien mythos or at least part of it ?
Also the balrog idea was awesome and its no wonder that xander couldnt do much against it , he is as far from gandalf as harry was from dumbledoore in terms of magical power and experience at least thats how i see it.
anyway moving on.
| Duraiken chapter 26 . 1/5/2011
Ah, I've missed this, and am still so very eager to see where it leads. I'm especially curious about what kind of motif(s) the Scoobies will adopt for themselves. Will they lay red herrings with comic book stereotype identities as their masked alter-egos and use various methods to redirect attention from their real selves as the ones behind the masks (like the mentioned shadow-self method?) Or will they adapt hero identities that go completely counter to what their civilian identities would suggest, though as said previously that may be too obvious as it's a 'used-in-comics' method, and even a red herring like the shadow-selves wouldn't prevent discovery through deductive reasoning and comic-knowledge: Batman has used stand-ins for his civilian identity before as well, even if they were of an usually more mundane origin than what the Scooby gang is proposing, and it wouldn't take much of a leap for a comic-savvy and magic-aware investigator to figure out what's going on if they stick too closely to modern (and not-so-modern) fiction stereotypes. Really curious what additional measures will be taken to deal with the identity issue, which I hope will still have flaws of some sort, as truly flawless methods (or at least, unexploited or unexploitable flawed methods) leave less room for fun later on.
Might also be interesting if the Scooby gang find out about their rep as unknown fledgeling Necromancers, and what they intend to do about it. Will they try to use it somehow, which may have very huge rewards but also incredibly huge risks (becoming bound to their enemies through Wolfram and Hart drawn-up trapped contracts or similar problems, being discovered as the forces that were the source of the Candy Witch's army, etc.,) or will they try to find a way to mitigate the situation, like arranging for the 'Mysterious Necromancers' to die like they did the Candy Witch? Though too many falsified deaths may eventually lead to their discovery - aand deaths.
Anyway, overjoyed to see this updated again. May the muses cooperate with you and meet your needs as best as muses can, or better if possible. Adios for now.

THANK YOU! I was hoping for a update on this fic.
And frankly, I freaking adore your logic. It's alway so interesting, and true! Also, thought-provocative.
(beyond that, I apologize for the short review)

I am interested in hearing more. :) I like that the group is doing more pulling back and being cautious. As in my prior reviews, there's a danger when adding powers to the supporting casts of making them too powerful, Mary Sues as the term goes. There have been a few times when you've straddled the line, but I think you're still holding it.
And, because it so seldom gets used properly, nice use of grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I can find nothing to disagree with there.
