Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
To be fair, being mistaken for prey is part of her genetics too. It was practically a full time job for Buffy until she became too well known. I bet Buffy wishes a bit more of the "merciless killer" had rubbed off though. Letting her enemies go is something Buffy got over much more quickly.
Comments from author:
Good point.

Well... it's a good point, but you'll see that Buffy's attitudes towards that change based on whether or not Seo's around. It's been stated a few times that Buffy and Jack don't feel comfortable killing things around Seo -- enemy or not. While Buffy is perfectly happy chopping up the monsters, she pretty clearly doesn't want Seo doing it.

Seo's got some kind of scary stuff in her head. Twilight training and Glory-type things and stuff like that. I think Buffy's worried about it going too far.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from JJDudeman
Review:
Loved this one - the Doctor's "one fair chance/warning" mixed with a hyper (deliberate?) innocence, but with an underlying steel if need be - that's my favorite take on Seo, and boy isn't she a complex character that could have a bunch of different "takes."

Loved her compression field/bikini comment, too!
You can tell Allison was still under development here, she's a bit more abrasive than she's seemed elsewhere. On the other hand, could be she just figures people trying to kill you don't exactly deserve politeness. Although Seo and/or several different versions of the Doctor might disagree with that last sentence...
Comments from author:
Aw, thank you. Yeah, she's got a lot of spark in her. Like her parents.

I'll keep that you like this aspect of her in mind, and try to work it into more of my future stories. I already have an idea of how to use it...

I've noticed that the more I write Alison, the calmer she seems to be under pressure. Here, she's a little more freaked than she is, elsewhere. As you say, she gets more smoothed out over time.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Cutiepie
Review:
I've been wondering something. You mentioned in a previous story (I don't remember exactly which one) that Seo no longer has her Glory-level strength. If not, why not and when did she lose it? Is she just Buffy-level strong now? She is obviously not just average-teenager or even average-human strength.

Anyhow, I enjoyed seeing a Slitheen being shown that they are not so high up the food chain as they may think.
Comments from author:
So... she still has it. She just chooses not to use it. In "A Scooby of Her Own", Seo finds out she can brain-suck people, and freaks out, remember? She's scared that the Monks implanted enough Glory inside of her that it would be enough to resurrect Glory, fully, given time. Turning Seo into another version of Ben/Glory, two beings fighting for the same body.

Which is even scarier, because Seo's already the Key. And has a lot of time travelly stuff in her head. So it'd be resurrecting Glory and giving her absolutely everything she wants, all at once.

You can see why Seo's scared of this.

Seo's solution? She's going to lock it all up, inside her own head, before Glory can emerge. She's gathered up anything that she feels is too "Glory" about herself, and shut it away. Including the Glory-powered super-strength.

She now limits herself to Buffy level strength.

But mostly, she prefers not to use any super strength or fighting skills, but just to outsmart people. I'm not sure if this is because she enjoys outsmarting people, or if she wants to fit in and behave human-like, or if she is afraid that fighting will turn her into the weapon she's supposed to be (or provoke the Glory part of her), but I'm guessing it's probably a little of all of these.

We'll get more on the whole Glory-Seo connection thing, later. But if you look closely at her dialogue, you'll see that every so often, she kind of slips into Glory-style speech patterns.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Mcspender
Review:
And the Slitheen found out why is such a baaad idea to mess with the Summers girls. They can kick their silicone butts quite easy xD!.

Cool chapter, see ya!!!.
Comments from author:
Yeah, the Slitheen just don't seem to understand that, to a Slayer, they're such a small-scale threat, they wouldn't even warrant their own Buffy episode! I'm thinking the Slitheen are more like... pre-credit sequence villains.

Silly Slitheen!
