Wow - great idea brilliantly executed. The prose, characterization, dialogue, plot, and pace were all excellent. The Scoobs were in turns scathing, understanding, juvenile, or funny. You wrote their reactions, and in particular Buffy's gradual move toward empathy in a mature, believable fashion. Thank you!

This is one amazing story you've got here.
Not only was this well written and planned out, I also found this addictive.
Believe me when I say, I skipped school just to read this.
You have succeed in growing curiosity in me that left me itchy until it is satisfied. For an author to make their reader feels that way is an amazing feat. Thank God I read it when it is completed already. I won't and can't bear to wait for the next chapter if it is still on going! lol
Anyways, I truly enjoy the read (even with eyes heavily laden with sleep) and through this story, I'm also interested to read your other works.
I see that in many of your reviews, a sequel is begged and wanted.
Personally, I think a sequel may not be necessary.
For one thing, the matter have more or less been resolved, and Faith in the end will be staying close to Buffy and co.
So it doesn't provide much complication which can turn a great nice amazing fic into a boring one because it will be predictable.
However, I imagined it quite funny and amusing how the Big Faith with Little Faith's memories will react to Buffy. And I still wonder whether things will turn out romantically between them. I have no problem either way because you made it so beautiful that it won't matter anymore but my bias is leaned towards romantically of course. And if I have not mistaken, Buffy showed some hints on that too, but pardon me if it's my mind playing tricks on me. I have no beef against Riley but I'm glad he's outta the way. A confrontation will be a good idea for the sequel...but it will make Riley even more the bad guy...
Hmmm...on second thought..a sequel won't be so bad after all! ;D
I want to see Faith and Buffy interacts WITH Little Faith's memory
Ultimately though, the decision is yours and boy, am I glad to read this. Thank you for writing this. You really are talented. :)
Now, I'm gonna go read your other works. Thank you for the enjoyable read.
PS: Willow and Tara are lovely 3

So I just wanted to say a couple things even though I'm not done reading this yet. First off, I don't like to say this about people's work that isn't current since someone might have already told them and I just end up repeating an endless stream of correction, but when denoting possession with a word that ends in "s" it is an exception to the rule to just put an apostraphe instead of 's. Ex. Summers' instead of Summers's. Now because English is possibly the most convoluted language in existence there's an exception to that exception as well. However since I don't have an English book on hand, I don't recall what that is. Sorry, if this has been pointed out to you already.
Secondly, Riley seems to be portrayed a bit...off here. Don't get me wrong; I think the guy has all the personality of a wet dish rag, a beige wet dish rag. But he's a psych major so it would stand to reason that he actually does get and understand people.

Thank you so much for writing this story, if you can't tell yet I'm being sarcastic, thanks to this amazing tale i now have to read all 119 of your stories, if my eyes start to bleed I'm sending you the bill. Now onto Comalies and its sequel.
Thanks again. Keep writing.

This is really good. The way you managed to make the characters respond believably to something so unbelievable is simply astounding.
| Bella Taggart chapter 50 . 12/19/2010
This was an incredibly well written story. Great premise, great delivery. You have made Faith into such a sympathetic character, and Buffy into the hero she was always meant to be to Faith. I was so sad to see that there wasnt a sequel. What are the chances of that happening? Please? Pretty please?

A Buffy/Faith Season 4 story with a unique premise - what if Faith's magic device broke and she became a little girl again? Buffy has to look after her...
Set almost entirely from Buffy's point of view, with little interludes from Faith. I'm still rather unsure of the writing style (you seem to drift from third person omniscient to third person limited narration at various points), but there are very few spelling or grammar errors.
The premise is unique and you've written it very well. It's got the right blend of woobie-ness from Faith, humour interjected by Faith and Anya and Buffy's sad sad mental anguish over choosing between cute changeling child Faith and psycho killer Faith. D'aww. Everyone appears to be more or less in character (especially Xander, with his batman versus superman argument) apart from perhaps Riley, but no-one likes him anyway. The story cuts off at the right point, although I'd have to express an interest in a possible sequel.

I'm sorry, I really have no more words than that.
| Marie Coffey chapter 50 . 2/28/2010
AH! You made me cry so hard! Every chapter was a mixture of Anya imitations and crying for Faith and Buffy.
This was a fantastic story. Thanks for sharing.

Original idea, to say the least.
Your reasoning behind HOW the device did this to Faith when it originally just switched bodies was particularly well thought-out; a bit complicated to follow all that stuff you wrote about what charka point is response for what, but the depth of thought you put into it helped everything make sense even if the full implications of it were a bit complicated.
On a characterisation note, your exploration of the reasons for Giles's initial failure to reveal the full extent of Faith's past to the gang was very well thought-out and developed, while Riley's assessment of Faith- while possibly a bit excessive- clearly displays what, for me, was the character's main failing; automatically assuming the worst of everything he met that wasn't one hundred percent human or otherwise outside of his worldview (Such as the idea of ANY child knowing terms like what Faith uses when meeting him here)
On that topic, Child Faith proved to be a brilliant character, perfectly combining childish innocence with a dark history that no child should have to experience; she might be willing to argue with Buffy about whether or not cereal's alive and show an enthusiasm for superhero shirts, but at the same time she saw a miscarriage when she was only four and has a knowledge of sex that NO kid should be aware of at that age...
DAMN, that's one messed-up kid.
Kind of amusing character, though; her casual inquiries about personal relationships might demonstrate a disturbing knowledge of life that no child her age should possess, but the blunt way in which she brings up the topics in question is actually kind of amusing, while her later reaction to the knowledge of what she became is well planned-out and appears VERY believeable (Although I’m a bit ambiguous about Buffy’s insight into her reasoning for wanting to be ‘big’ again; I agree with the reasoning behind her motivation, but I’m just not certain if Buffy would have realised the ‘why’ of Faith’s actions at that point).
I still think Joyce shouldn’t have been QUITE so understanding about Faith’s initial reversion to child-status- this is the woman who kicked out her own DAUGHTER when she first learned about the Slayer thing; extreme circumstances or not, I still think she’d have a BIT of trouble believing that Faith is TOTALLY innocent after she’d been holding her prisoner-, but her later response to the discovery of Faith’s background made more sense.
As for the rest of the Scoobies...
All very well-done, really (And extra points for having Riley get dumped like that; I NEVER liked that guy).
All in all, a very well planned-out bit of work; keep it up!

Very nice. it was really well written story. i thought little Faith's obsession with Spiderman was awesome. I would really like to know what happened to Riley.
| EagleRay chapter 50 . 12/3/2009
Wow, that was incredible.
I don't even really mind whether Buffy and Faith go on to have a relationship as Slayer Sisters, or as Lovers. It was an awesome story! Hope you're still writing other things...
