I look forward to the next update.

Now this is an interesting turn of events! Angel killed Kendra, and Xanthos was an accessory to the crime. I wonder how that will play out when everyone learns the truth? Almost certainly not well. And I kinda liked the omake with the 'Sliding Doors' movie theme, where the changes in just one moment can lead to two incredibly outcomes.
And just out of interest, I know that Faith is certainly the most logical choice of the next Slayer to be Called; but does it HAVE to be that particular girl? Was it ever stated anywhere that the pre-Scythe Chosen Ones are activated according to a numbered list, or it's just the random selection of a Potential Slayer depending on where and when her predecessor dies? Anyway, as always, I hope we see more of this story soon!

Well, we'll find out how Xander's wired when he finds out the girl was one of the GOOD GUYS! Sure collateral damage and friendly fire happens, but still, she was a teen on the side of light here, if you're like any soldier in such situations, you're gonna be feeling more than a little guilty. Of course Kendra's not ID-ing herself didn't help but hey, Angel's a vamp and Xander was in a demon bar and helping him, what would you, not knowing the lay of the land, do?
Yeah, big oops.
Of course the REAL screw up was on the Council's end for (as usual) not calling Giles and sharing info. Ya know, simply getting on the phone and telling him the Slayer was on her way, what she looked like, and her name. Those guys are worse than the cliche "need to know" CIA types in movies! Of course, that's the cliche they're using...HEH!
Fun thing is that if/when Faith nails Finch, they'll be pretty hypocritical to get all squirrelly 'bout it...well more than they were in canon anyhow!
You know, one of the dumbest thing in the series was how all shocked (shocked, SHOCKED!) they were at the idea of a second Slayer. One dies, another's called, that's the way it is...and Buffy DIED. Sure she was resuscitated but the heart stopped, period and the universe ain't particular.
Frankly, they shoulda been asking where the next Slayer was and why she HADN'T shown up by then!

Dang I am a fan of Kendra and now she be dead but it was bold and I like the way it went where it was Angel who killed her instead of Xander, plus it will reflect incredibly badly on the council because they didn't inform Giles of the new slayer in town and because of that she got killed

xander behaves like a fucking shotshot. i would dearly love to see his expression when he finds out that they just offed a slayer.

Wow. It's been so long since I watched Highlander that I had forgotten about the infertility. And, ACTION this chapter, Yay! Will Xanthos try to have himself tested to see if he's immortal, or will he find out the hard way from getting too involved in the order of Taraka?
Another great chapter, cant wait for more!

Lots of action in this chapter, and I mean that in more than one sense of the word. :) Xander's scenes with Aura and Cordelia were awesome - the Methos aspect of his psyche really is influencing him a lot these days, isn't it? It was pretty good alternate version of the WML episode as well. My favorite lines were, "I believe that's enough, Xander." "She was reaching for another weapon." "Oh, well in that case, never mind." Where do you come up with this stuff? :) More soon!

Thank you for writing.
| Jason123456 chapter 12 . 5/22/2013
yeah he used that free sample trick to get women to open there doors for him
| Shisou Wolfe chapter 11 . 5/20/2013
Hopefully Willow won't be getting all cold hearted. Though I can see it for a little bit. She's got to be broken hearted right now.
Is Aura an OC? Just curious because I'm not sure how many of Cordy's friends were named.
| otakuguy chapter 11 . 5/20/2013
Another great chapter. I'm glad you didn't dwell too long on the emancipation hearing. Can't wait to see what happens next!
With Oz possibly on the horizon, will we be seeing the return of the Scoobies, or will Xanthos remain the (relative) lone wolf? What does the future hold for Aura? And, whatever happened to Ford? Only future chapters will tell!
| Starway Man chapter 11 . 5/20/2013
Another good chapter, and loved the Princess Bride quotes. I was hoping for my favorite, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!" but those ones were good too. There's still no sign of reconciliation with Buffy and Willow, which is not surprising; but on the plus side, Xander and Joyce are getting along great, ditto with Giles. The date with Aura intrigued me; and is it just my imagination, or did Cordelia exhibit a small trace of the ol' green-eyed monster there? Anyway, I hope we see more soon.

Great chapter. Thanks.

I've been following this story since it started. Very entertaining.
Mortal Xander with Methos' memories (as opposed to, say, one of the clan McLeod) adds originality to what could otherwise be YAHF. Many fanfic authors would have had him displaying expert swordsmanship and popping up from the dead by the second chapter. More still, you haven't written Xanthos as mature to the point of boring, yet. And, you've made a major plot deviation from canon. A feat that many YAHFs fail to accomplish. Kudos!
As to the "Xander 'should just move out of his parent's house''. It's not that simple." bit, I think most people aren't saying "move out" in the legal sense. They're actually saying "run away." Which is plausible if you interpret Xander's parents as being so neglectful that they wouldn't care. That's not saying that it's the way you should have went. I am very interested in seeing how you resolve it, so long as the fic doesn't turn into a legal drama.
Also, thank you for updating regularly.
Until next time I will eagerly await your next chapter.

You have it right on the emancipation thing, it ain't easy. Also good know-how in the swords! Far too few who right fanfic know swords or bother to do research.
Good portrayal of Xander and making him effective. Well, you've wanked him, but LOGICALLY, and that's something. And entertaining!
Good dressing down of Buffy though, they often seemed to enable each other far too much, and that led to alot of pain down the line. Buffy often means well, but she's too close and too gentle-natured (in her weird way), not to mention far to often prone to see only what she wants to.
Though he HAS lost his "everyman" status and role in the group, and that's a lack story-wise. At least Methos' memories will recognize Faith as the PTSD victim she is and hopefully prevent the self-fulfilling prophecy that marginalizing her (as they did) will cause. And without sleeping with her cause, really, she need FAMLIY and a healthy self-esteem more than a lover by a freakin MILE!
Hope he sees that as well.
Having played with an acquaintance's bronze short sword, in my opinion the main drawback to bronze is that it's far more expensive. Sure, a little heavier and somewhat softer, but not enough to switch to early iron equivalents right off. It's also easier to work, and bronze would hold a far better edge to boot.
But iron woulda been FAR easier to get your hands one once you know how to smelt it, so cheaper and far more common. Once you get better smelting processes and then later figure out how to carbonize at least part of a weapon (steel layering), well, then it's a obvious switch!
And I've read that steel, at least a version of it, was far more common and created earlier (though they long had no clue what they had) than many commonly think. Is that incorrect?
