|Reviews for A New Path: Volume 2 College|
| DavidB226Morris chapter 34 . 7/2
I haven't posted a review because I haven't been logged in. I just wanted to tell you what a superb overall picture you've been forming with the New Path series.
I was skeptical that a story that moved the Smallville story to Sunnydale could be effective, but you've proved me wrong roughly at chapter 8 of Commencement. I was also doubtful that a Faith/Clark romance would ever work- after all, the two are such diametric opposites, you wouldn't believe they'd be attracted. This may be the most solid crossover romance I've read in sometime, and I'm also glad to see that the Kents have acted like good citizens and gotten Faith out of the shack of a motel (I'm pretty sure at least half of her fall into darkness was caused because of that specific type of isolation).
Most of the changes you've made to cannon have been positive- I'm particulrly gratified to see Cordy and Xander staying together, and how Lois and Chloe get clued into the party a lot sooner. The possibilities boggle the mind- will the Justice League have at least one vampire slayer (Oh that's right, they're halfway there already.)
I realize that you've got half a dozen projects on the burner and most of them are more involved. Nonetheless, I look forward to the day- and I hope it is soon- when you return this series. Bravo.

I liked the Jean Grey quote.
And that pretty much sums up my view of this story and it's predecessor. I like it. But. There is a hefty but.
You need a beta, stat. You're missing lots of little things, like full stops, commas, the occasional apostrophe and not everything that should be capitalised is. Your writing also maybe requires a little more... sophistication, perhaps. This could be a great story, but the little flaws are holding it back.
But, overall, it's good. I like it, I'm enjoying the story (though I tend to skip over the Mortal Kombat parts. They hold less than no interest for me and, frankly, I wonder why you even added them. Raiden is something of an exception), and it could be much better.

Love this story. Great characterisations. Best Smallville/Bufgy crossover I've read.

I normally post a review at the last posted chapter but I feel that this chapter was off. The whole Buffy/Clark thing doesn't feel as if it belongs with the rest.

Nice ending Chunk, looking forward to Volume 3. Curious to see who's sister Dawn will be, Buffy or Clark. Glory vs Clark should be fun, but won't Glory be completely over matched? It's been awhile since I watched Buffy but I could have sworn that Glory was not at her peak, and that's why Buffy even had a shot, she was fighting a watered down Glory. Clark should stomp her power wise, not to mention his skill as fighter with all the training he's had.
One thing I forgot to mention before, if you do bring in Zod at some point, let him and Clark had a massive DBZ type fight like they did in Man Of Steel, I loved that version of Zod. Hated the whole phantom Zod takes over Lex thing they did in Smallville.

Great section, and really enjoyed seeing the fears put out there, and will look forward to seeing what has happened because of what Raiden did there.

Well I have to say Chunk, This is a very good ending to a very good story and I wish you luck with Vol.3. Allthough just stick to what works and make Dawn Buffy's sister, like they say "If its not broke, Don't fix it." that a way if or when you decide to introduce Conner (Clark's brother) Dawn and Conner would be a pairing onto itself. I liked how Clark is beginning to see the World beyond Sunnydale and slowly enbracing how he is the hero the World needs, and how Faith got the idea about the glasses.
After reading Vol.1 and 2, Clark and Faith are now among my favorite pairing.
The sneak peak at the end proved to be a real grabber, Again an incredibly well written story and I'm looking forward to Vol.3, until next time.

I like how this ended. Although the little parts of the next Volume has me wondering who Dawn is going to be the little sister to.

interesting...guess this means Dawn is showing up soon...

awesome looking forward vol 3

Nice wrap up with plenty of hints at what else may come. People are standing together while some are getting pulled away. Good read, and things are looking big next time if Xander is telling Clark he destroyed the world. Until next time.

Will be glad to see the end of your second chapter in the New Path series. Though I thought Volume 1 was a stronger story and enjoyed it more, I still liked Volume 2 and enjoy the direction that your taking the story and characters. Very much looking forward to Volume 3 and would love a preview of it with the last chapter of Volume 2. I have a sinking feeling that Jonathan Kent was spared in Volume 2 so that our heroes could be hit with a double whammy of Jonathan and Joyce leaving for good, guess I'll have to wait and see. If Jonathan is being killed off in Volume 3 could we see some fatherly moments between him and Clark, Faith, and Xander. Clark for obvious reasons, but I feel we haven't seen enough Jonathan/Faith scenes, he is her surrogate father in every sense of the word and it would be nice to see some bonding between them. In Xander's case Jonathan also has become a surrogate father, maybe not as much as with Faith but nonetheless apparent. I enjoyed the scenes of Jonathan teaching Xander about construction and encouraging him to pursue a it as a livelihood. Loved the first two Volumes and eagerly awaiting the third.
P.S. Clark/Faith is by far my favorite pairing of Clark with a BTVS character, and the way you write them feels very genuine to who they were in their respective series and who they would be with the influence they'd have on each other.

Great to see the good guys pull off a win here, and a big win it seems, especially if they've hopefully got rid of all the Fines?
