Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)ColBlack
Review:
Great story. Like the ending, even though it is a bit of tearjerker, and also the one way I never expect Buffy to go - old age.

Will you be doing a story where Buffy regains her memories of her 'dead' time? It would be interesting to see how she would deal with regaining her memories, especially because she has killed people in cold blood, perhaps she could realise that Buffy and Faith are more alike than they think.
Comments from author:
Thank-you.

I've no plans for Buffy to recover any of her 'dead time' memories. However, Buffy realising that herself and Faith are more a like than she'd like to admit is covered in a couple of my other stories. The end of 'It Makes a Fella Proud to Be a Soldier' is a good example of this.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from maxthehobbit
Review:
The outlaw Josey Wales ... one of my favorite movies of all time. As I read this story I got a couple of good laughs just thinking about Chief Dan George, the look of his face and the way his voice is sorta serious and funny at the same time. You fit Buffy into this story about as good as anyone can. Your stories are always better than good and this one is probably the best of your short stories. I'll always love your series with Willow, but this story is one I'll read a few times before I get tired of it ... then I won't read it for a year and it'll be just as good as the first time I read it. I especially liked the epilogue always good to know how things turned out.
Thanks for writing and sharing your wonderful crossovers.
Comments from author:
Thank-you for saying such nice things.

TOJW is one of my favourite films, has been since I first saw it.

I once heard an author say she kept getting people asking her what happened to the characters in her books after the story finished. She sorta gave a dismissive answer along the lines of 'what does it matter?' Well I think it does, people need to know, so where its appropriate I like to put in an Epilogue. Of course I'm evil so the 'what happened next' might not be 'nice'!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from AllenPitt
Review:
You should do a sequel. Imagine a Buffy of season 6 & 7 who is willing to use guns, and is good with them. Bringers wouldn't stand a chance. Hm, any chance she met up with the Mayor sometime back then & didn't realize it?
And if she ever finds out about Laura Lee & D'H, she might just shoot D'H.
Comments from author:
I have considered having either Faith or Buffy meeting the Mayor some time in the past, but I've never come up with a good xover.

As for slayers with guns I've done this on occasion but never Buffy (as far as I can remember).

I did a couple of 'Wild West' stories with Faith shooting down demons and Indians with her six-guns...which reminds me I should get on and finish my Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid xover...that has Buffy with six-guns in it!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from WhippingDawn
Review:
Just finished it. Damn it tears came to my eyes at the end.

“I think I’ll go to sleep now…” Buffy sighed as she took the girl’s hand, “…Laura-Lee,” she smiled and closed her eyes.

Hoping at long last she had earned the right to rest in peace, only to wake up alone in a closed coffin. Truly a new POV on "Bargaining", Buffy's POV.

Thanks for a beautiful story and a memorable ending. :)
Comments from author:
Thank-you.

That, 'I think I'll go to sleep now' line? I lost track of how many times I changed that on line! Glad I seem to have made the right choice.

Glad you enjoyed.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from CPTSkip
Review:
The end of your story brought tears to my eyes. Then poor Buffy was dragged back to Sunnydale, which ticked me off more than what happened in the TV show episode. Lol!

Your ending also really made me wondered if the Scoobies have damned their souls to Hell for bringing Buffy back to life. But I have to admit your Buffy was a kicka** Little Old Lady.

You've adapted other movies and stories and inserted the Scoobies into them, but I think this story was one of the best jobs you've ever done. While the story was still the basic movie the main character was definitely not Clint. Your Buffy seemed very true to canon and yet seemed to be reacting naturally to the events in her life. Well done and now do it again. Lol!
Comments from author:
No pressure then?

I've always let the Scoobies off because they genuinely thought that Buffy was in Hell, and from what I remember they didn't do it on a whim.

One of the things that have fascinated me over the years was what would the Scoobies be like in their old age. I've written a couple of stories on this, 'Those Were The Days' (I think it was called) looked at it, but I've never done a full length fic on the subject.

I think the reason this story has been successful is because the movie I crossed with was such a well made film which makes my job easier.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from Hecatonchires
Review:
As good an explanation as any (except D'hoffryn -_-) for where Buffy was during that period. ^_^
Comments from author:
Didn't like the D'Hof bit eh? Oh well can't please all of the people all of the time.

I'm still struggling with what makes a good xover!

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from Muadzin
Review:
And so comes to an end one of the more interesting, and shall we say, unique crossovers, here on TtH? Kudos for doing that and delivering an interesting enough story that made me check for updates regularly.

Rich made some interesting points about political legitimacy. About whether or not it comes from the top or the bottom. Personally, I'm a cynic through and through and the only rights we currently enjoy we enjoy society grants them to us. As Somalia proves, as do many other places in poor unfortunate Africa, in the absence of government the only rights people have is to do whatever the hell their current warlord tells them too. Which is why too me any talk of inalienable human rights, or even animal rights is silly. In the absence of the rule of law there is only the basic rule of nature, the right of the strong to do as they please with the weak. Which makes me very glad to be part of a civilized society that allows me to waste my free time on reviewing fanfiction.
What has always struck me as odd (being an European) in regards to the US debate regarding state rights is that with the exception of the original 13 states and Texas which joined later, all the other states were creations by the US federal government and every state right these states enjoyed they got from the US federal government. So logically it would follow that a South Carolina, a Virginia and a Texas did have the right to secede from a union that they surrendered political rights and authority too, but a Missouri or a Mississippi never surrendered anything to the union and even owed it their very existence.
Oddly enough, the only political organizations where power comes from below

Funny how a work of fanfiction can create a quasi political debate. Which I hope is more pleasing to the author then just a 'Nice story, thanks!'

Anyhow, considering that Buffy the Viking ended with her clawing herself out of her grave as well and there's no rest for the wicked I wouldn't be surprised if her movie inspired adventures are far from ever. No rest for the weary seems to be the motto for characters created by Whedon. If I might suggest another movie adventure, the German movie Downfall (Der Untergang), about the last days of the 3rd Reich and the surreal world in the Fuhrer bunker. Buffy suddenly becoming one of Hitler's secretaries and trying to survive in a city with a mad and dying dictator, fanatical SS and Hitlerjugend, einsatz commandos hanging any German of fighting age whose not on the front, and of course the Red Army that raped anything that was German and female. Or maybe Enemy at the Gates with the backdrop of the battle of Stalingrad? Imagine Buffy as one of those poor Red Army sods being ferried across the Wolga to die? Epic sniper battles? And of course Rachel Weisz as her potential love interest?

I'll shut up now. ;)
Comments from author:
Now I'm not 100% sure but I think the right to Secede from the Union was written into the constitution.

I've got two more 'Freefall' stories in the works, one a Hill Street Blues story is finished but there's something about it I'm not happy with so I'll need to do some more work on it. The other is a 'Tour of Duty' xover which I've written the first three chapters of, I must get back to that soon. I've worked out what I think's an interesting end for that one!

Downfall, I bought this film about a year ago and was immediately blown away by it...I've been trying to think how to fit it into the Buffy-verse ever since!

Always nice to here what people think, also always nice to hear from people who just want to say, 'Nice story, thanks'!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from Rich
Review:
A couple of closing points:

First, the horses I've met personally didn't strike me as very intelligent, but I haven't met that many so I won't argue the point.

Second, IM (not so) HO the earlier reviewer was partly right, but only partly. Slavery was the cause of secession; but it was secession, not slavery, that sparked the war. As you pointed out, whatever the politicians may have had in mind, most Northern soldiers fought for "the Union", and most Southern ones fought for "States' Rights". Slavery was at best a secondary issue to most of the actual fighters.

Modern Progressives tend to think that states rights are a code word for racism, and in some cases it is (just as modern conservatives think that "racism" is a code word for "disagrees with progressives about anything for any reason at all", and in some cases they're right too). However, even though these issues may be linked by circumstance, they are NOT the same thing. Prior to the ACW, people said "the United States are" - the country was seen as a Union of voluntary members, and it wasn't obvious to a lot of people why the members couldn't unvolunteer if they chose. In fact, the issue isn't completely dead even now; we still hear people talking about seceding over policies that they don't like.

Underneath it all is the question of political legitimacy. Southerners then, and conservatives now, believed that the people grant authority to the government. Some progressives seem to believe that the government grants rights to the people (and some of the more extreme ones think that the UN grants rights to the member states, but that's a different debate).
Comments from author:
Almost missed this one...now where were we?

Never heard of 'horse sense'?

Horses WILL NOT, charge something they cannot see a way of passing through be it men standing in ranks or a fence, race horses and hunters have to be trained to jump fences. If this wasn't true, what would be the point of forming squares or phalanxes? Forget war movies read actual military history.

A friend of mine once stopped a runaway horse simply by standing in front of it and refusing to move (I may add I took cover behind a tree! Horses are big and scary and I hadn't got a longbow or rifle with me!). The horse stopped and he was able to grab its bridle.

On your final comment, I must be a conservative then, although I can't find it in myself to vote Conservative anymore.

Cheers,
D.
