Wow! Great chapter, stromg scenes! Tara showing her inner strength, Faith unable to keep her mask up, Anya voicing the thoughts of everybody (readers included), and Buffy ... I think she may be at the same point she was when (in the show) they'd brought her back - with one crucial difference: She doesn't care about anything any longer, anything but revenge ... update soon!

Giles: I feel so sorry for him. His reaction simply shows that everyone feels just helpless in a situation like this, no matter how old or experienced he or she is.
Faith: It's understandable that nobody knows how to deal with a grieving on the inside/unusually quiet on the outside Faith. But thank God Tara, the one person who knows Faith least, instinctively does what Faith needs.
Anya: Great monologue. I really bought it, and especially the brakdown towards the end was great.
Buffy: I bet the breakdown will come, once she is alone. She's not looking to kill Glory, she's looking for a lone place to cry.

Very interesting dynamics you are building here...
I would of expected Buffy to be more clingy, rather than the cold and stand offish way you portrayed her here. It seems that she is driving a wedge between her and Faith, after trying so hard and being so desperate to bring Faith back and win her over.
Dawn has got to be feeling abandoned by Buffy. She was angry with her to begin with and she will definetly remember that when she needed Buffy the most, she wasn't there.
Out of all of them Tara seems to be the most capable. Maybe it's because of her life before coming to Sunnydale?
I can't wait to see where you take it from here. Thanks for writing...

This was great! The way you have packed so much emotion into this chapter is unbelievable. Your descriptions of each characters feelings and reactions really came through well.
Buffy seems to be having Post traumatic stress, Faith has completely reverted to her childhood (seeming to expect Giles to strike her when he tries to comfort her), Dawn feeling abandoned by everyone, and lastly Giles. He's totally shocked and unbelieving that he risked his heart and had it taken away again by something that goes bump in the night.
I almost expect Buffy to go downstairs, out the door, and on a one slayer rampage against every supernatural creature in Sunnydale.
Please, please, please post again soon...

Yeah, I would probably react just like Buffy throughout this entire chapter... except without the calling anyone or even moving to do something.
Poor Giles. I didn't even see the similarities between Jenny and Joyce's death until now :(
Nice also how you have Giles call Faith "child", because that is what she basically is, and it comes out in this situation.
So, I wonder when Buffy is finally going to break down. Or what she and Giles will now do downstairs in the kitchen, and what Dawn and Faith are going to do all alone upstairs :(

Well, Glory sure made her point there ... Poor girls. And with all three of them feeling guilty for Joyce's death, we've some hard times coming for sure. - I really liked the sharp contrast between the fun-chapter and this one; it made an even more brutal impact this wway.

Oh, GOD... that was... well, awesomely horrible... really
I can't even cry, I'm in shock. I really didn't see that coming, well, not this way, anyway. Oh, God, poor Joyce. I don't even want to imagine how she must have felt in the last few seconds of her life.
And the girls... I wonder what is going to happen with them and all the others now. It will be interesting to see, how you will with the feelings of everyone in the next chapter(s). I wonder if anyone will be thinking about bringing her back.
So, that was really awesome chapter; I had the "something-terrible-is-going-to-happen" feeling from the beginning on, then it went away for a couple of lines, and then... well, you killed Joyce :(

Thanks for the action packed chapter. I guess leaving a chopped up giant snake laying around wasn't such a good idea, huh.
Wow, Glory seems to really be invulnerable, Faith was brushed aside like a fly. Does Glory see through the glamour Willow cast on Faith?
There is no way any of them are going to be able to deal with Glory killing Joyce, and right in front of them. They will all be blaming themselves for her death or for not being able to stop Glory in time. (Dawn being the key, Buffy not being strong enough, Faith cause she blames herself for everything).
Giles will probably be flashing back to Jenny Calander and will be no help at all. Who does that leave to bail the girls out? Wesley, Tara, and Anya?
Thank you for the update and please post again soon...
(Hope school is easy enough for you, to keep this story going!)
