Review of chapter "Darkness over Boston" from Dmitri
Review:
I got to admit, this was a dark story, but Faith-centered stories tend to be on the dark side, for one reason or another. Either way, it was also very exciting, though Faith and Ron? Well, if they can make it work, then more power to them. And Snape is still alive. Yay!
Comments from author:
I agree. That's why I try to give her a little less darkness in the 'O ye of Little Faith' stories.

For some reason in my mind it works. I hope I can keep them together.

Poor Snape. He has no idea...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Darkness over Boston" from twlight
Review:
You brought Snape back to life!!!! Yahoo! I love that Faith was able to gain Snape as a new friend/father figure so quickly. I hae to say that I love what Faith did to the minions that had hurt Snape. I also love how Ron was understanding about how Faith felt about not being THE Slayer. I am looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
Naah, he never died. ;-) Snape has mellwoed in away, and he recognises an injured soul quite easily. he's still a bastard though.

Faith tends to extremes when protecting those she's bonded with even slightly.

Ron would understand what it feels like to be brave and powerful, but not the hero everyone is looking at. It seemed to make for an interesting basis of a relationship.


Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Darkness over Boston" from DieselDriver
Review:
Except for this: “If ya think I’m gonna hand you Snape, you’ve got another thing coming!” I like it a lot.

BUT!!! I'm really tired of seeing this saying miss-said.

“If ya THINK I’m gonna hand you Snape, you’ve got another THINK coming!”

Think about it. Does it make more sense my way or your way? What other "thing" would they have coming if they had a "think" before? Check out this article:

You've Got Another Think Coming!

by Tina Blue
November 24, 004

A popular expression that I keep seeing misused, even by those who write for a living, is the one that goes, "If you think this, that, or the other, then you've got another think coming."

The common misuse of this expression goes thus: "If you think this, that, or the other, then you've got another thing coming."

For example, I recently ran across this statement in an article by well-known author Nicholas von Hoffman, of the The New York Observer: "If the leaders of the Democratic Party hope that they can fool the holy people by buying themselves white leatherette-bound Bibles and pink plastic Jesuses and turning up to give testimony at church, they've got another thing coming."

Von Hoffman used to be a columnist at The Washington Post. He now writes a regular column for the The New York Observer. In other words, he is a heavy hitter, not some insignificant little blogger that no one has ever heard of. Besides being a long-time professional writer, he writes for papers that are supposed to actually have editors.

Politically von Hoffman and I have much in common. But I just don't like to see the language mangled by pros, even when I agree with their sentiments.

Folks, I don't care which side of the political divide you are writing from. Whichever it is, please at least get the words straight. If you think it doesn't matter whether you speak or write like someone who actually knows how to use the language--well, then, all I can say is you've got another think coming!

In this I'll point you to the following discussion:

http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=87385&;page=15&p=12439332#post12439332

(Googling 'you've got another thing' gave me this thread as the first hit.)

In this case it was a clear threat. Also, it's dialogue, which isn't grammatically perfect most of the time. Certainly not when spoken by Faith. Both those reasons make me use thing.


A lot of people have heated opinions on it. I don't, I'll use thing when I want to have an implied threat, and think when I want the characters to re-think their situation or previous statement.

Review of chapter "Darkness over Boston" from Gideon
Review:
Fantastic! Snape may be a hero but he is still not a nice man. Much like Faith is not a nice girl, but she has grown into someone who will do what needs to be done. I wish Ron and Faith much happiness together. I can just imagine the faces on their friends when they find out!
Comments from author:
Thank you. Snape=bastard. And oh, those faces...

Review of chapter "Darkness over Boston" from HMaxMarius
Review:
Okay... I've read everything up to this one so far and I have one huge question...

what the effing heck has gotten into Giles???!!!??? (Yes you have the one scene with Buffy and Dawn... but that could be typical sisterly stuff). Has some deathmuncher got him imperioused???
Comments from author:
What indeed? Or is he really all that different from season 6/7 Giles? ...

Review of chapter "Darkness over Boston" from (Current Donor)kcl
Review:
I liked this one. A lot. You have a superb talent for taking disparate personalities and molding them into a believable and thoroughly entertaining story. This one is certainly the darkest of the series so far, but I'm looking forward more and more to the following stories.

Which brings up an odd problem I have with this series. It certainly looks like this is going to be another set of your 'cosmic convergence' stories. However, your writing skills have progressed to the point that (for me at least) I'm depressed when I reach the end of the latest chapter, as there's obviously much more to go. I actually think that I'm going to put the series aside until there's at least four or five more to read. That way I only have one abrupt stop to deal with instead of many. (And how's THAT for a back-handed complement? ;-)
Comments from author:
Thank you. It holds two of the darkest characters and was hardly going to be sunshine pressed out of puppies.

This one has a finite end, already in sight. Possibly with a few scattered ten years/twenty years later things. But it certainly won;t run to the length of W&S or the infinite slowness of Weird Sisters.

An excellent compliment, I'd say. Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Review:
Great read! Loved the take on the after-effects of Snape's "demise," and life. Faith deserves way better than what Wood and Giles did to her.
Comments from author:
Thank you. And yes, she does. The bravest man I ever knew...
