Review of chapter "Storm's end" from Dmitri
Review:
That was a very interesting and formidable story. The good guys have really triumphed at the end, and Giles proved NOT to be evil. Personally, I think that Shacklebolt had recieved the short end of the stick, not unlike the other members of the Order he really is a good guy himself, and frankly Andrew had been scared straight away from evil by Darth Willow back in canon S6, but this still can work. Looks like happy end for everyone involved, too!
Comments from author:
Thanks. Giles still has to be tried of course, to determine if he was under a compulsion, and then deal with the damage done by his actions under its influence.

It's not that long after the war and Shacklebolt hasn' t been able to deal with all his problems. Of course an outside force might be helpful or solidify the resisitance to the changes...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from twlight
Review:
Oh this is just wonderful. I really love this wonderful wonderful story. I have to say that I really love how Draco's daughter changed her look to look like Snape at the end. You really surprised me when it turned out that Jamie was not a human child, as I thought that Harry and Ginny were married earlier in the story and now they are just engaged at the end so what happened? Again this is wonderful.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it. Why restrict Metamorphmagi just to the Tonkes family? Poor Snape, his life will never be the same.

Yes, a seed of confusion I planted on purpose. Of course once Jamie is fully grown, there might be a British version of the RCTMP.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from PoThangFanfic
Review:
This was an excellent series! I loved all of the endings, although I would have liked to see what eventually happened to Giles.

But, other than that, well done!
Comments from author:
Thanks. I'm working on the judgement day story, but I need/want to deal with some other things in this verse first.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review:
Well done, though I think you've been a bit too cavalier with these marriage proposals.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Call it a Reward of Champions from PTB that feel more than slightly guilty.

There will be more stories, though they're not being written as fast as I'd like.

Review of chapter "Dances with Slayers" from DieselDriver
Review:
Once again you leave a cliffhanger lightened with humor at the end of the chapter. That's a really nice touch.

Thank you, I do my best. Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from DieselDriver
Review:
Well, that was a pretty vile chapter. Nice to end it with a funny line like that. I appreciate it. It lightened the mood considerably. I know things are bad but that is a very good way to tell the story.
Comments from author:
There's a lot of darkness in the world, I fear. And I didn't want to end the chapters on dark notes every time.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Heir of Slytherin" from DieselDriver
Review:
I guess I was pretty much expecting Giles to be bad but I thought it would have been taken over mentally rather than evil himself. The juxtaposition of roles in this story with Ethan and the others with Giles is really quite interesting. I don't think I've seen Ethan as a "sort of" good guy before. Great fun so far.
Comments from author:
Ah, but the story is not yet done...

Ethan has his limits. It just took a while to find them.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from Eureka
Review:
Would be grand if you could do at least part of the trails since Giles is one of them that shall be on trial. I really want to know if he is going to be found wanting or if he is going to be ended. Since even in canon there ere times he could be a berk I kinda do wonder if he would be found to have been fully imperiled or if he kinda already had it in hi to hurt them all. Andrew always has been two sided about things.
Comments from author:
The trials will be partly written, and some more stuff as well. I’m concentrating on LS/W&S now however, so it may be a while…

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from (Current Donor)Listener
Review:
I had no idea when I first read "One Beautiful Morning" that it would culminate with an excellent, LONG story like this. (Yes, I know there's one more, but this as far as I've gotten.)

I might have laid off on the use of "stated" and how everyone came back or was secretly not evil, but you pulled it off well and I thoroughly enjoyed the piece.

Great work.
Comments from author:
Thank you. It wasn’t supposed to be this long, I admit. But it was needed.

I though, their lives are dark enough, I can add a little light. Yes, the stateds. Some you win…

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from lunalurker
Review:
Sometimes it is annoying that you can only recommend a story once.
Often in fiction, when a marriage between worlds results in a wave of actual marriages after the big battle, it grates horribly. To have made it all come together in ways that feel deserved and rewarding and adorable, instead of feeling either bolted-on or teeth-aching artificial sweet overdose, takes a lot of skill and feeling for the characters. Everything in the climaxes and aftermaths came together beautifully.
Breezing through the reviews shows that anything else I can think of to say right now has already been well covered, so I will leave it at that. Once again, from a big fan, thanks very much for writing. :)

p.s. I still want my own Albert!
Comments from author:
Isn't it, just? And they lived happily ever after tends to need work. Glad this was a believable way of doing it. Of course we'll deal with more future events in the sequels.

Gladly done. And actually, I want one myself...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from Greywizard
Review:
I was just re-reading this - yet again, because it's just so enjoyable ;-) - and I realized that I hadn't reviewed this chapter, so I'm correcting that oversight.

This story is simply wonderful, and I enjoyed every aspect of it. (Except for the Snape bits, since I despise the character completely. However, it's your story, so you get to write the way you want, and the rest of the story more than compensates for his inclusion.)

If you're still tabulating votes, I'd like to see a story focusing on at least part of the trials - especially Giles' and Andrew's trials, or at least the aftermath of them, with the consequences of their behavior spelled out.

I very much liked your having Ethan point out to Faith just how much the Scoobies must appreciate her, if they're willing to put up with re-ensouling him and allowing him remain among the living for her sake.

And I *definitely* want to see more of Ethan embarrassing Faith with his comments, comparisons and contrasts of their respective sex lives. ;-)

I'm looking forward to seeing the societal toilet that is the Wizarding World which JKR gave us being flushed several times due to the Scoobies' influence, and a new social order being established, since even an overtly cannibalistic society would be an immense improvement over what currently exists. ;-(

In any event, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what's coming next in the series, and I want to say thanks for sharing this 'verse with us.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Snape isn't everyubody's cup of tea, though he has at least many redeeming features as Dumbledore, who gets a lot better press...;-)

One more vote for the trials. You'll have to wait a bit, it will be part of the story after the next one, which I will start posting next Saturday.

Yup, Ethan has his moments. He also has his uses and he isn't completely Dark, he can cast a patronus.

The Wizards will have a shake-up, yes. They didn't have the excision and beheading needed in such circumstances, but they also lack the people to replace the ones that would have to be removed. Much like Germany and Japan after WWII.

As said, the next installment will be up next Saturday. I hope you enjoy that too.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from Starfox
Review:
Nice ending! Still, a few loose Ends to tie off at the Trials, which I hope you'll write as well.
Comments from author:
Thank you, glad you liked it. One of the first things written for the story actually. And vote thirteen!

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Storm's end" from (Current Donor)Cordyfan
Review:
A great conclusion to this story, with rewards and just desserts in equal measure. It remains to be seen how much of Giles actually needed to be controlled and how much of him only required slight manipulation. Ethan needs to know that Faith's dad or not, he's on his last warning. I wouldn't mind adding my vote for the trials, by the way.

At least Buffy also has her man, safe and sound, and the various Ministries are on notice to clear up their act, or else.

Thanks for writing this.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Every man is made up out of many things and in some ways it might have been easier than in others. That remains to be seen. Ethan is well aware that he's a hair's breadth away from a Scything.

Another vote for the trials.

Buffy got her man, yup. And the Ministries had better step carefully and clean out the fertilizer post haste.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing
