Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from DieselDriver
Review:
I'm surprised there aren't any stories starting with "It was a dark and stormy night..." Or are there?
Comments from author:
I've a feeling I did start one like that but I couldn't say for sure and I've no idea where to start looking.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two." from DieselDriver
Review:
Certainly not a very subtle way to say "go away".
Comments from author:
Is that where the body fell out of the window?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DieselDriver
Review:
Bwahahahahaha! Famous last words “what could possibly go wrong?” along with "How hard can it be?" famous from those galumphing galoots on Top Gear. Yes I know that Hamlet, er, Hamster, er, Hammond isn't big enough to galumph but Clarkson does enough galumphing to make up for it.

There was a time when I thought James May might have been related to Brian May but alas and alack, they are not related as far as anyone reports on the internet. What most people don't know is that Brian May is an astrophysicist. So, officially he is Dr. May.

I don't suppose you could find a way to insert Queen into one of your stories. That would be cool!
Comments from author:
How did we get onto 'Top Gear', and yes I did know about Brian May...he's been on TV presenting 'The Sky at Night' I believe. I don't watch TV any more so don't quote me on that.

Queen...actually I think I have got a story with Bohemian Rhapsody in it...if I can ever get round to finishing it.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from Gideon
Review:
Scary story! I think it was a bit hard to get a sense of the enemy what with it being a building rather than a person, but it was plenty scary. The last section with Kennedy was scary too but in an entirely different way. Killing people, even people that deserve it is completely opposed ot the slayer way of life as Buffy practises it. I can't help but think it does not bode well for the future.
Comments from author:
Yes we could be storing up badness for the future.

To be honest I was never completely happy with the way this story worked out, but most people who expressed an opinion seemed to find it scary so I must have done something right. I wish I could have found a copy of the book on which the song was based, I think it would have been a better fic then. Unfortunately the book is well out of print and I couldn't find it anywhere.

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from BritneyandJacob
Review:
Excellent story. I love it. You did a wonderful job writing this story. Keep up the wonderful writing you do.
Comments from author:
Thank-you, I had my doubts about this one and didn't think it was one of my best. However some people liked it so maybe I was wrong.

BTW; I ordered a copy of the Gregory Peck Hornblower film. I had this idea about Faith just falling out of the sky and landing on the deck of the Lidia.

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from MarcusRowland
Review:
Minor road accident... with cameras? I think Kennedy may have been a little careless.

later - sorry, I meant that something like a road accident might have people taking pictures, with a possibility of a picture showing Kennedy leaving the crime scene. Sorry that wasn't clearer.
Comments from author:
Either you've spotted something that I didn't or... I'm almost sure there were no cameras down that street or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

I can't help feeling I should have done a major rewrite on this story, like scrapping it and starting again! It just doesn't 'click' with me so why should it with the readers?

Oh well I'll start posting the follow on story in a couple of days.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five." from CPTSkip
Review:
I'm still a bit confused as to what the frak is really going on. But the mental image of skinned kittens certainly adds to the horrid atmosphere of this story. Yuck! You may not think this story is one of your best, but for shear creepy atmosphere, it scores an 11.5 in my playbook. Shudder.
Comments from author:
Thanks for saying, I think everything is explained in the grand finale.

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter four." from CPTSkip
Review:
Gack! What a spookfest. You write a darn scary story, Dave. Whatever it is that is haunting this horrible place, I think Darth Willow is about to kick its butt. Lol!
Comments from author:
Thanks, actually I'd not thought this was one of my better attempts...or it could be me being over critical.

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter four." from MarcusRowland
Review:
Nasty - sounds more like Sapphire and Steel than Law and Order.
Comments from author:
Oh I remember 'Sapphire and Steel'! Those were the days? I was watching part of L&O UK season 3 last night, it just gets better.

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three." from CPTSkip
Review:
Odd. The detectives don't seem to be in the same building as Willow and Kennedy. Ooooooo! Nice atmospheric story. I just hope I read the next update in the daylight with the sun shinning. Right now I am afraid to look over my shoulder.
Comments from author:
Thank-you, capt. To be honest I'm not sure what comes next it's so long since I wrote this!

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three." from Hecatonchires
Review:
I'm enjoying the witty repartee. The building seems particularly malevolent. I'm settling in for a nice creep out.
Comments from author:
Thank-you, I hope I don't disappoint!

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
Nice bit of foreshadowing. I do believe Buffy needs to find a "Friends of Bill" meeting ASAP as she seems to be loosing control of her life to 'demon rum' and/or other types of alcohol. As usual, I look forward to reading more of your story.
Comments from author:
Poor old Buffy has a way to fall yet.

Meant to mention that the Music xover starts in Chap 2 and the L&O UK xover starts in chapter three!

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MarcusRowland
Review:
Interesting start - don't know the song at all, but looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
Yeah needed a chapter to get into the story.

This should lead you to the song;

Its based on a sci-fi novel which you can track down on wiki. Unfortunately I think the novel's out of print.

Cheers.

Dave.
