Review of chapter "The Matter of the Clones" from djhardim
There's an old saying - fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

The plain and simple fact is that they can't afford to show Willow or Dawn any mercy. At the earliest opportunity, they have to take them out. The stakes are too high.

The only fly in the ointment is the Clone troopers. There's no telling what would happen if Willow and Dawn were to die.

Just a thought, suppose that Xander and Buffy got a look ahead at Halloween 1997. What would they have done about Willow?

Edit: They meaning the Watcher's Council. As for Halloween, I meant that the Powers sent a message back in time.

Edit1: It would have to be an alternate universe version. In order to make it work to begin with, Buffy and Angel will have to step back from their relationship. It was the soul curse ritual that started Willow down her road to destruction. Make sure that both Willow and Amy have proper magical instruction.
Comments from author:
They meaning who? The Watchers' Council or the US Congress? As for any contingency plans, in the event of both Sith Lords being taken out, remember that the Sith are not stupid. Darth Hera would have made some sort of plan for the clones to follow. Also I hinted in previous chapters that Hera might be considering Lilah Morgan for grooming as an apprentice.

The Halloween element does not come into play in this work as it takes place after Season Seven and assumes that the events of Seasons Eight and Nine did not take place.

Oh yes, in case anyone noticed, each chapter needs to be read multiple times to keep up with the new material that I add on a regular basis. I rarely, if ever, post a complete, finished chapter so please bear with me....thanks


Re: That's a really good idea; I had intended to bring the PTBs into the mix somehow...otherwise there'd be no point to the title, now would there? One prob would Willow and Dawn escape the increased scrutiny (at least from OUR point of view) and find the means to unleash the destruction we've witnessed so far? It seems a bit problematic due to the Scoobies' affinity for interpreting prophecy...

Re:Re: I was actually thinking more along the lines about the prophecy excerpt I had written at the beginning of Rise Dark Sisters, to which by the way this little ongoing work of mine is a sequel, you may wish to refer to that. But moving right along, the prophecy shows up in a search of documents by Angel while he's trying to find a way to find more Potentials and Call them, he runs across the prophecy and figures out the PTBs have known about this all along and have never said squat about it, and it goes from there.

Review of chapter "The Matter of the Clones" from cmdruhura
I think that Xander is saying, "No More!"
Comments from author:
His bestest friend in the whole wide world, his dear sweet crayon breaky Willow is now a Dark Lord of the Sith and a mass murderer along with Dawn; how would YOU feel after suffering such a terrible betrayal? Prob with Xander is his resolve...when he makes a decision he sticks to it through thick and thin. Just ask Deadboy -- Uh I mean Angel...

But you need to remember, this is Darth Hera attempting to persuade the United States Senate to come around to her way of thinking. A daunting task certainly, when you consider that each one that holds a seat in that great chamber has dexades of political experience...and she hasn't even questioned yet. In the meanwhile Xan the Man has to reconstitute the Slayer line if he's ever to have a hope of going after Hera and Vastia...

Oh, can anyone guess where the clones' next target will be?
