Thank you!

Actually, "plasmavore" a Dr.Who term. elisi used it in her current fic My Immortal, and I nicked her idea.

I'm glad it works! I was a bit unsure about using the term.

In Xander's defence, I can say that the events happen very quickly, and he is full of anxiety and guilt - for not beiong there for Faith, for hiding the truth from Buffy and Giles, for dragging Willow in his problems. He is terrified of facing Anya because of her brutal honesty.

Faith's making a mess of the Black Thorns, great stuff.

Like the prophecy too, adds backstory.

Oh, I think Faith would have been an awesome addition to AtS season 5. *misses Faith terribly*

Thank you! I think that the canonical mythology of season 5 is fascinating, yet a bit underdeveloped. A great excuse to twist it the way the story demands.

She'd have made a lot more sense than certain additions did that's for sure.

I think TheWB would have gladly added Faith to AtS cast in any season, if Eliza would have expressed interest. Apparently, Tru Calling looked a better option back then. Pity.

Wow, I love the way you had Willow totally get Xander off the hook! Nice job :)

And the plot is certainly thickening! Can't wait to read more :)

Thank you! BtVS always fascinated me with its seamless mix of magic and technology, and I wanted to recreate the combo. Hence, Internet Explorer options and ancient scrolls in the same package. :)

And the plot is certainly thickening! Can't wait to read more :)

Soon... :)

Willow is very good at lying. I haven't decided yet whether that is a good or a bad thing... :)

And the plot thickens! I liked very much how you brought The Circle of the Black Thorn and Faith's former watcher into this.

After all, she's a psychologist's daughter. :)

Thank you! I wasn't sure if I overcomplicated the plot. I'm glad I can keep your interest!
