There's really not much I can say that I haven't said already. Awesome. Funny. And entirely *you*. I loved it to bits and I'm going straight to the sequel after this. (though, I kinda wanna bug you about a next part in the "Project" series. I know better, from bugging my brother and a certain other author, but that doesn't mean I don't want to.)
... Anyway, thanks for this, and I'll keep reading your amazing stuff. Because it is just. That. AWESOME. ]

YESSSSS! Epically cool. Finally, someone that Buffy is happy to see. Love Shunsui's intro too. Very nice. Here's to future and present alliances.

Yay! I love to see these two worlds mix. You really capture the tone of the characters. Lone Flower definitely "sounded" like Juushirou, and this follow-up "sounds" like Buffy. I especially enjoy the humor, mostly provided by Shunsui and Cordelia.
The scene when the shinigami have a chat with Angel feels very insightful. I've never had a real problem with Angel, but I don't see how his relationship with Buffy could end well (haven't finished the TV series yet, not quite to season 4).
I'm glad that Willow and Xander are getting some training along with Buffy. The sidekicks have potential.
Thanks for another enjoyable installment. I'll read the final Petals story soon.

oh yeah, brainstorming. even if the can't get rocket launchers to SS, they can still emulate it

This is great. I love the sheer potential, it's mind boggling how you explained it!
| Oriko chapter 1 . 10/7/2008
Is that a reference to what I think it is?
| GoldenRat chapter 1 . 10/5/2008
I really enjoy the post-Halloween interaction.
| Kanikan chapter 1 . 9/11/2008
It's not often I read a story and want to give the author a hug for writing it . I absolutely enjoy your x-over Halloween stories. I think in part because you use mange/anime I'm familiar with and it's not the little kiddie type, and make it fit with the BtVS world so well. Not to mention I'm not an Angle fan, so your treatment of the character is quite in par with my view of him. Nice work with the Soul Society and characters therein. I hope to see you continue this story as it can use a third installment. Keep up the wonderful work!

love the sequel.
| skabs chapter 1 . 8/13/2008
I really, really, really, REALLY want you to continue with this... i really, REALLY want to see Buffy kick Angels head off his shoulders, but if that can't happen, i think she should at least officially tell him to kiss off, in the politest Juushirou way... PLEASE?

Vathara, you are way too talented. I read these two stories, not knowing the world of Bleach, and fell in love with them. In order to better understand I went on a manga binge and read every available chapter of Bleach I could find. Your amazing writing skills have lead me to take to yet another series and say whole heartedly, "PLEASE write another story for this AU!" You rock!
| Louvil chapter 1 . 7/30/2008
Both stories were a blast.
I wouldn't mind a sequel...

Excellent sequel. Clearly Buffy has benefitted a lot due to her temporary possesion. Not only has she gained some new powers, she gained a new mentor and a new world. All of a sudden Buffy is not a lone warrior with limited back up, fighting the good fight. There is a whole army out there fighting the same battle she is fighting. She no longer has the weight of the world on her, that can only improve her mental state. Finally sharing Juushirou's memories made her grow up more than a little bit. She is already looking at the world with a new perspective.
Xander and Cordelia have also benefitted from their new powers. Willow is definitely more powerful, but who knows what's going on in her head.
Overall, it was was a great crossover. Both sides benefitted from their interaction. Both sides now have new threats on the horizon and the door is left wide open other stories. I hope you write more stories in this series. I'd love to see Cordelia in Karakura, Buffy's shikai (presumably a double zanpaktou of some sort), or an altered meeting between Buffy and Kendra Young.
Anyway, thank you for the story. I had a blast reading it.

A brilliant pair of fics! Your stories are uniformly excellent, but these stand out as some of your best work. Between these, Project Tatterdemalion, and Fosfor's Frozen Ring, I have been COMPLETELY hooked on Bleach in the last month or so.
My only real question is regarding Shunsui's reference to three women who scare him. Nanao and Unohana are obvious, but who's the third? Soi Fon? Yoruichi? Yachiru?
Regardless, I eagerly await your next piece of writing, whether new or a sequel.

I haven't gotten around to watching Bleach yet, but this and the previous story were excellent reads. I can't wait for what ever else you decide to write about. *poke, poke* Maybe some Godzilla...I miss Godzilla. *winks*
