Review of chapter "Chapter One" from YademosEbyam
Review:
This is one I'd really like to see continued. However, the ghost of Mrs. Peel? I suggest you find a way to get that sheet off of Willow before “Showtime!” (Maybe a nasty kid?!?)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
Review:
Instead of just Xander going as an Avenger, how about letting Buffy and Willow in on the fun?

Buffy would be Cathy Gale and Willow would be Mrs Peel.

Since Willow isn't available to sound the alarm, assume that Cordy has a working cell phone.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from WolfWriter
Review:
This soooooooo needs to be expanded on.

After four years, it BEGS, DEMANDS, and SCREAMS to be expanded upon.
Comments from author:
I've tried, believe me I've tried. There is just one problem, I can't see where to go with it.

This story taught me a painful lesson; never to start writing something I can't finish. A good story needs a solid ending and needs to work towards that. Now sure I can have Xander as John Steed but where do I go with that? I'm completely lost at that point. This is the problem I have here. Sure it's screaming, but for me to do what?

Any suggestions please give me a shout and prod me in the right direction, because I've got nothing. Well not nothing, I have toyed with the idea that while Xander has Steed's skill set we find out that Willow's mother's maiden name is Kuryakin and her grandfather works at a dry cleaners called Del Florias in New York... (look it up if you don't get the reference). Again a nice idea but what is the upshot?

Again any suggestions on what direction would be welcome! Thanks for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Netchka
Review:
I figured it was John Steed. It was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. After Mrs. Peels husband came back I believe Steeds next partner was Tara. Hope you continue this fic.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Amberdrake
Review:
Ok now my brain is stuck on Alyson Hannigan in Mrs. Peel's catsuit. More please.
Comments from author:
Love to but this paticular muse is dry at the moment.

I might, given some time be able to get back to this and find out where it's going. The problem is where that could be

Thanks for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Harry
Review:
If you EVER decided to follow up on this one YOU WILL get reviews from me on it! I used to watch The Avengers on A&E here in the states, and I LOVED IT! *MRS PEEL, we're needed!* GOD, I loved that show! Now, do we have Willow as Emma or Cordy? THAT is the $64,000 question.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
I can see Steed having some useful knowledge for Xander to share. Not only most of the soldier knowledge he got in canon but also intelligence analysis and spy skills. With Mrs Peel they would make a formidable team.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
Review:
Just read the wikipedia article on Emma (Knight) Peel -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Peel

Mrs Peel is a perfect character for Buffyverse -
"She is a feminist heroine, eschewing traditional "damsel-in-distress" portrayals of women (she is rarely bested in any fight and rescues Steed as often as he rescues her.) She is a master of martial arts and a formidable fencer. A certified genius, she specializes in chemistry and other sciences. She is often seen in episodes engaging in artistic hobbies and had success in industry at the helm of the company of her late father, Sir John Knight. "

I can see Willow asking Giles to train her.

A bit on John Steed from Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Steed

Steed was born John Wickham Gascoyne Berresford Steed in the mid-1920s. A distinguished veteran of World War II, Steed served in the Intelligence Corps and received the Military Cross for single-handedly taking a German machine-gun post. Before leaving the British Army to join The Ministry Steed achieved the rank of Major.

He maintained a modest flat in London during the 1960s and drove a variety of elaborate, old-fashioned cars, including a Rolls Royce and several different models of Bentley, one of which he calls Fido. In one episode also a Vauxhall 30/98 can be seen.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Tanydwr
Review:
Nice. I've seen some of The Avengers on reruns, and Steed is definitely cool, and Mrs Peel was awesome - definitely a positive female figure!

Love Xander's choice.

Keep up the good work - I'd love to see more. I can see Steed looking after 'Lady Elizabeth' extremely well - he'd know how to interact with a lady, and would reassure her because, after all, he's a gentleman.

Lol, Tanydwr

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kayron
Review:
I have seen an episode or two of The Avengers, so I know who Emma Peel and John Steed are. I don't see how Xander, with John Steel enhancements, will be a major benefit to the Scoobies though. He won't be any stronger against the vamps and demons. Maybe he'll be better at planning and strategy? If the story continues I'll track it to see how things are worked out.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from LordCorwin
Review:
a definite must on the continuation part. The only one who could even hold a candle to Steed is ..... *drum roll* Sean Connery.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from zafaran
Review:
Oh, yes. Please do continue. I like Steed. His take on the Hellmouth should be *very* interesting, and Xander could certainly use the skill set. I hope your muse and schedule will allow you to write and post more chapters sometime soon. Keep up the good work. Zafaran {mailto:} zafaran {at} fastmail {dot} fm
