|Reviews for Protector or Slayer?|
| Guest chapter 2 . 7/4/2014
A interesting start. I do like this. A few comments. A) I get you knew where you wanted the phone convo to go, but it seemed it kind of just jumped to it. I would think the logical reply to Angel's "They are worried about your powers" to be "I'll let you know if anything changes". Here is a quickly thrown together example (ellipses to simply cut out your parts that stay the same, as it all starts and ends the same, just a few nudges in between):
... And they're worried that you are next."
Buffy almost snorted ... guilt her into coming back. "I'll be sure to call you if I notice anything different with my powers."
"Uh," Angel took a deep breath. "I think they want to make sure you're alright and all."
Buffy rolled her eyes. "Look, I need time to arrange time off. And then I don't have a lot of personal time to use up. So unless they got something they need slayed - slewn - slew? - I can't see what sort of help I'd be. I'm slay-girl, not answers-girl."
"But still, your friends, you were friends once, need you now."
"Fine," Buffy huffed. "I'll call back when I get everything straightened out on this end and can let you know when to expect me to fly in. I'll come to them, since that's where the problem is."
He let out a deep sigh, saddened ...
B) It has become a clichè that Buffy senses Gould in these sorts of fics. There is no supporting evidence (since the two canons were never officially crossed), but there are reasons to be different. 1) In Buffy-verse, it is clear that while an Alien is one not from Earth, a Demon is one not from this universe (or descended from such). One can easily argue that Goulds are born and evolve in this universe. They are alien, but not demon. So why be sensed? 2) Buffy, in the show, never could sense Vampires. Note in the first season first episode. Giles said she should be able to sense a vampire in The Bronze should there be one. She picks one out by his fashion, not by sensing him. In the second season, when the vamps are kidnapping everyone who was near the Master when he died, a vampire comes out of the shadows *right behind* Buffy as she walks away after her confrontation with Cordelia. Buffy was clueless a vampire was ever there and Cordy got kidnapped. How many times does she get blind sided or jumped out at? So be different - slayers can't sense aliens, including Gould. And Teal'c for all he's born off planet, is still descended from humans. He's an alien human from stock bred to be tougher and stronger. Nothing mystical about that. Try it the next time, as a challenge, you write one of these cross-overs.
Of course, that just means one could write it as Gould came from another dimension, a hell one, and thus were always demons. But try aliens that come to Earth after the demons are kicked out and humans are beginning to flourish in an Ancient Egyptian Civilization. Just to change it up a little.
That said, it is well written and an interesting way to cross the two series. Well done on a fun to read story!

Nice. I also think Buffy was to forgiving and Buffy has done more for them than they ever did for her.

Your not writing Giles in actually works for the story I think. It would be hard to believe that none of them had come to any sort of realistic understanding regarding what happened. It works that at least one feels some remorse for what they did to her.
As always, thanks for writing.

dam you really hate the scobies...
i get me and you see thinks form a different point of view... but why do you hate them so much...
buffy plan was to go fight the same guy that kick every body but before... she refused to LISTEN to anybody else ideas... she told the she is the boss why she strong is she smart NO, buffy said I cant watchs you lead in to destastor" then dawn said you cant stay... They did not kick her out they wanted her to listen to them they fought just as long as she had and knew just as much maybe more she refused...
to she was right there was a sytch there. there was a bomb there to, in if giles or willow or xander were killed they would not have done that spell... she said the only one i trust is Spike, who just a week ago was under the first control that sound crazy to me...
yes they never said sorry, becouse it was the last espod and they did not have time... did buffy say she sorry for let anglus kill all those people, or running a away or hiding agnel, or tell them she does not need there help with ADAM, she was wrong again, or when glory about hidding dawn, the scobies help her with that... or about spike selling demons eggs How many people did they kill she never said sorry for any of that... becouse of time... so you have to gave them some slake..
the house she work at double meat polus how much do you think she mad 12 1300 a mouth after tax how did she pay for everythink.. willow paid rent, guiles gave money, dawn dad paid child sopport and xander help a lot, fix house maybe money like food...
look i get buffy shold be mad but this the scobiies are monster crap get old fast... I save you life many time, help pay your bills, listen to bitch, but one time i did not trust you when you are acting crazy then i am bastard... if they would have listen to buffy would that bomb have kill them al... does being stronger then every one else make you a leader...
