Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from texaswookie
Okay good fight in this chapter Xander proved that he's got game now and how to use said game. Angelus will probably make Xander pay for that later though and might take him a bit more seriously. Xander needs to watch some weapon movies now though, something along the lines of Erroyl Flynn, Princess Bride, The Black Swan, and 7 Samurai.
Here's a question, what would happen if Xander was to learn something while he was pressing fast forward though? Would he perform a move faster or would he not be able to catch the entire move because of all the lines that pressing fast forward caused on the screen?
Comments from author:
Thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed the story, so far.

Xander does have intentions to watch the sort of movies you mentioned, in order to expand his capabilities, but time seem to be in short supply at the moment,

And your last question is quite intriguing. In canon, the Taskmaster did watch videos at fast forward and was able to duplicate those moves. Whether Xander will be able to the same thing is yet to be determined.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from bookworm
Very nicely done. Too bad they couldn't have gotten Angelus too, but Dru is definitely a major win for them, as well as blasting canon to bits. Do we know why Acathla didn't work, if I was to read back into earlier chapters, or is that yet to be revealed? I'll be glad to see more of this whenever you have a chance to finish the next chapter, anyway.
Comments from author:
In canon, Angelus used his own blood to activate Acathla, which is something he isn't aware of, at this point in time.

And yes, canon is lying in shambles far back down the metaphorical road, and things are going far, far afield in upcoming chapters.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from wonderbee
Another nice chapter, and a surprise to see Dru turned into a vacuums best bud, while Kendra gets to go on for a while longer, and if this might lead to more timeline twisted ness as far as the Scooby gang go, especially with maybe certain other bad guys gunning even more for the slayer and her gang.
Comments from author:
Well, canon is now well and truly shattered, so anything can happen - and hopefully, will. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Bronze
Oh. That. Was. Simply. OUTSTANDING!

This was, probably, one of the best written fight scenes I've ever read and watched in my head at the same time. I loved the way it just flowed around in a constant circle of non-stop action.

Xander is totally awesome! Smart, the way he didn't try to just rush in because he can fight now, and strategizing his ass off. The pencils.... I'm just all kinds of lovin them.

Thanks for another great chappie. Looking forward to more!

Comments from author:
Thanks. I try to make my fight scenes as realistic as I can manage. Happy this one went that way. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Genuka
Hm... How's he gonna get the info from Giles when in the series he didn't break? Dru had to ensorcel him...
Comments from author:
That's a very good question, isn't it? The next chapter will be addressing that issue, at least partially.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from trongod
Great to see another update; you're one of the writers that I really don't care /which/ story is added to as long as you keep writing...

Excellent: Xander exploring his ability and getting advice and help from others; Kendra Lives!!; Fury and Co. are getting a handle on what's going on; YOU'RE STILL WRITING!!! {i worry about my authors ya know...}

Uh Oh: Joyce is a bigot; Faith's pretty much dead, as I can't see her living much longer given what canon did to her, poor kid...; Willow's hurt pretty bad.

Oh Crap: Jenny's dead; thinking Oz was Angelus' victim in the failed attempt; Dru's gone - Spike has no reason to keep the White Hats alive after helping save the world and his own butt - actually, that should be reversed as to his own priorities...; if S.H.E.I.L.D. knows about Sunnydale, how long before Hydra and A.I.M. get in on the act?
Comments from author:
All I'll say right now is that Angelus isn't responsible for *everything* going wrong in Sunnydale.

Remember that there are *many* would-be Big Bads who've shown up in town, looking to make a name for themselves.
