  1. Thanks as always for the review and feedback.

    However I think you've got yourself completely the wrong end of the stick. You couldn't be more wrong about Faith – she doesn't want to be, or see herself as, a man - or as in a male role at all! She's completely female and really, quite feminine with only very slight butch tendencies but she is absolutely *not* masculine. She's a lesbian Top – perhaps, though I dislike the label, a dominatrix - though in fact, while she is  sexually dominant she is solely Joyce's Dominant. In fact that might in some ways be the alternative title of the story! But beyond that she is a woman who loves women; and one woman in particular. In fact the idea that she's playing some sort of male role would really offend her. Moreover she certainly sees herself – and Joyce sees it as well – as a romantic. I frequently describe them as lovers for a reason. I think you've misread or misunderstood the whole premise, and one of the central themes of my story if you can't see that it's a romantic love story – a kinky one certainly – but one in which Joyce's seduction and ‘conversion‘ are based on her falling in love with, and coming to accept the feelings she has for, Faith; and to treasure the way those feelings are reciprocated by her lover. And at the same time what Faith feels for Joyce – feelings that Faith has had for a long time – is equally deep. She may be Joyce's Dominant, and at times a harsh, demanding lover but Faith is quite as much in love with her submissive as Joyce is with her Mistress. Their relationship is a night/day/yin-yang/push-pull thing in which, without the dominant there is no submissive ave neither can find what they want and need. They both need each other equally and their love for one another is completely interdependent.  So Faith is not intended to be some uncaring, ersatz male, interested only in taking what she can from Joyce. Yes there's a lot of sex – kinky and frankly unrealistic – because in the end this is supposed to be, from the outset, a written sex-comic – but the sexual content is both meant to be entertaining and erotic, and also to express the intensity of the two protagonists’ physical love which in turn is a reflection of their deep and deepening emotional, romantic love.

    So while you’re right that I've tried to create a sort of inverted 50's romance – with a relationship that would have been completely frowned upon at the time – there is definitely no element of gender roleplay intended. That 50's housewife paradigm is just a conceit. And you shouldn't look at Faith’s use of dildos as being wanting to be male – the ability to penetrate Joyce is more about domination – and, at the same time, pleasure for Joyce – than anything else. As for her being patient or otherwise: in the early stages it was all about keeping Joyce off balance and disoriented, and vulnerable - receptive to seduction and susceptible to domination; and then later it's meant to reflect the urgency of their ongoing passion.

    I have to admit that I'm a bit disappointed that you've managed to come to  these conclusions, because to get to a point so far from what I’m trying to portray must mean my writing has failed.

    I'm afraid your hope that Faith becomes Buffy's step-mom (and Kendra becomes her aunt) are going to be disappointed - I'm just not interested in exploring that. And in my romance story Faith just isn't interested in any other women - that's really important to me.

    I also struggle as to why on earth the consensual relationship of Tara, Kennedy and Willow would attract your disapproval? What in their conduct could you disagree with? That they are engaged in a form of polygamy? It may not be how you would choose to live your life; nor how I would either – but it seems to make them happy! And I just want to portray these characters finding happiness. 

    I'd like to do something more with Satsu – another Intermezzo scene – though I'm not yet sure what!

    By the way Buffy only has 2 ex-girlfriends – Faith and Willow - so no deal there either I'm afraid.

    Anyway thanks again for your thoughts.

      I’m just going to stick my nose into something that’s none of my business to point out that the reviewer did say “I didn't read through the whole thing exactly word-for-word“, so chances are, the fact that they missed so much of what you were trying to portray had more to do with that, (and maybe a few little personal biases) rather than any failing on your part. You responded well and with tact, Salamandaslash. Kudos. 

  2. I hope for more of this story, additional stories set into this universe, and more chapters to this story and its sequel as well… granted, we do not agree on some details in this being acceptable; but that’s for dealing with in discussions to find out what’s what and why what’s what is what’s what in everything involved. Still, I love the character dynamics in this love story (as you made perfectly clear to me, it is a love story). I’ll check back from time to time as my schedule allows, I’m enrolled in a vocational school these days, so my attendance may indeed be spotty, but the dynamics are fun to read; and your observation of Kendra Young as a black woman is something I’m grateful to you for… hadn’t really noticed that as I watched the show, actually. I really saw her as a person, not a member of a set ethnic/racial group, but as a young lady; and I’m thankful for that element, and yes, she’s both: her DNA is that of a “black female”, but that’s what her DNA was written to have her as- and that’s all race really means: what your ancestry is. I rather like this rendition of her, minus the seeming adulteress she is in this series (stealing somebody else’s wife and such), but that *orientation* itself is a touch that really “fleshes her character out” in some ways, same deal with her being athletic in your story, a bartender in your story, and apparently also a heavy reader (she reads a lot, in the series canon that is), hence: a bit of a mix of athlete and nerd (both are excellent traits). Now, referencing your comments to readers: I *guess*, and I need your verification on this matter as you’re the author, Salamdaslash, but did you merely mean that you don’t want to be harrassed and hence you want the readers to take it as it is, rather than barrelling down your throat for something in your story that they might not agree with? If so, I heartily agree with you on *that* detail, Miss, but that’s that… more precisely, I understand where you’re coming from, hence: sympathize, but *we* did get along, despite disagreeing on the issue of same-sex marriage (which is in your story); hence: I’m puzzled. If you mean “don’t “ramrod a bayonet down my throat for posting something you might disagree with”” I’m with you on *that* detail. It *seems* the most logical understanding that I’ve just posted, but I want to get inside your head to see this statement from *your* point of view, so as to avoid any hurt feelings. I hope you understand; and whether or not you do, I plan on remaining your fan. Sincerely one of your fans; Krulos.
  3. I personally look forward to more too!
  4. Miss, do you have a problem with me writing a story based on the Kennedy and Tara as girlfriends/lovers arc in your work? I just want to get public permission before I risk getting in trouble due to misunderstandings… I’m sure you understand. You can get some of my ideas from our conversations on this site; I’m trying to be a gentleman here and upgrade my politeness in the process of concocting a story- I plan it to be mostly romance between them, but the “wild romance” common, or *reputed* to be common in such a community… not much sex, but genuine caring between those two females. I also plan it be *within* the BtVS/AtS universe, so things like magic, and preternatural monsters and warriors, like in the television series and books, would be the case, but it’s mostly the two of them attending classes together and glancing towards eachother and things like winking- while thinking about how they plan to act up together in their dorm-room and the like- as a “coded message”, remember how Kennedy said that dealing with girls is like “flirting in code”, well, there’d be a lot of that between them. It’d also be a crossover between BtVS/AtS and Earth Final Conflict, but a bit of one, as Kennedy Sandoval would be the niece of Ronald Sandoval, the FBI agent in that series who went bad, so she might be emailing him and the like; mostly genuine daily life between those two, but they would at times pick up girls at lesbian bars and take them to their bedroom to “bed them” (I’m pretty sure you know what I mean), especially if the girl’s pretty in a physical sense… Kenny might even get them drunk to see if they come on to her (a form of sexual assault- she might not have realized that by the way, as that conduct is disgusting, or she might’ve been boasting to Willow, she’s got her shady side- I’m talking legal sense, here, but that *is* the typical tactic of a rapist: get the victim drunk and then they’re unlikely to resist, so that’s scary if it’s in her personality… I love her, but I don’t blame those who don’t like her for that reason as a result.), a common misbehavior in college-age youngsters… and the two of them are pretty rebellious, that’s another touch I plan on putting in the story, if you’ll agree to let me help you by “sounding out” how they’d interact… I also plan on making more chaste loving encounters between the two of them, such as discussions on deep topics- and the basis of this in the show is that both Kennedy and Tara are somewhat nerdy in their personalities, they’re perfectionists, a touch proud as far as arrogance goes, and at least somewhat athletic (Tara rides horses, and I assume that Kennedy is involved in things like track and field- that kind of athletics and the sort)- a good mix of personality all in all. What do you think of my overall idea, Miss? Sincerely one of your hopefully many fans; Krulos.
  5. Good; skimmed it in its entirety, enjoyed what I read of it by and large… currently eager for part four, Miss. I'm most eager, and I reviewed it, too! Mind you, my review (and the site's system doesn't record chapters- a trait that kind of bugs me, by the way!) isn't in as far as I've gotten… but I *did* love how Joyce moved Dayna into thinking of herself as a mistress; hey, what about this idea? Dayna forces Buffy to call her “Mistress Dayna”, or “Mistress Penshaw”, or, failing those, simply “Mistress”, but, for her own protection- as well as her ownership of Buffy (whom she sometimes addresses simply as “Bitch!”) that'd apply to when they're alone, or with Dayna's trusted friends. How's that bit of additional feedback sound to you, Miss? Hope to hear back from you soon. Sincerely one of your hopefully many fans; Krulos
  6. I’d love to help you out, but I haven’t any experience with being a co-writer… it might, and that’s *might* be a good expereince, and I’d sure like to read what you’ve got in mind; feel free to send me a message and I’ll see what I can advise you on… I’m already working on a number of long stories, so best advice I can send you prior to any messages discussing it: break it up into manageable chapters, or make it a novella series, you know, short stories that weave together into one long tale. I’m really eager to read your idea and to see if I can help you out on this dark storyline you’re suggesting, Saladied. By the way, Merry Christmas to the both of you, albeit a very belated one, sorry, but this is the first time I’ve ran across this post, sorry about the late pleasant wishes, that is. Sincerely eager to help you out on this, when and if time allows, as well as conditions; Krulos.
  7. Okay, Ma’am; I welcome whatever elements you elect to put in, but in your series you’re writing that includes these women, is Buffy also going to be her sister’s mother-in-law? If so, that’s one peculiar family as far as how people are related to oneanother! From your replies to me; I guessed that Dayna would marry Buffy, making Buffy Janice’s stepmom, and hence, if Dawn and Janice wed (which is likely in your story- from the context you’ve said you plan to have in it, and it being a love story- and believe me, I’m *NOT* against that detail!), the logically, Buffy’s her sister’s mother-in-law; which is completely kooky to begin with and would generate multiple double-takes, and several repeated blinks, both of which are fun to watch happen, as well as a lot of “Huh?”’s going on there. That quirkiness is definitely something I’m hoping goes on there; and now that I think it over, would Kendra be Dawn’s aunt or great-aunt, due to the confusing family bond going on there? I loved the story ideas to your series, and really do hope for more, as well as having taken great delight in having Buffy and Satsu being friends but Buffy being on too short a leash to allow her to bed Satsu, but does Buffy’s mistress wed her, like the ways that Buffy’s mom and aunt were wedded to their mistresses? If so, that’s going to make for a most interesting little story to put it mildly! To put it bluntly; this is a far more baffling family relationship than the one in OUAT, which has Henry being the stepson to his adopted great-grandmother; a baffling family relationship to put it simply. Hey, don’t get me wrong, I love your story ideas, but I just need to understand them better, and you’ve been helping in the “PM Conversation” we’ve been writing back and forth to eachother, so lets keep up both means, if at all possible. Sincerely your fan; Krulos.
  8. I’m liking it; mostly the drama of having Faith wind up Buffy’s stepmom- just a little weakness of mine you might say with regard to how this leads to massive, and I do mean *massive* amounts of drama… then it appears that she gives her away to someone else to be that woman’s personal slave, or so it seems; that’s something else that I enjoy. I also love the way Miss Summers’s rival from school is now her other mother… this is, all in all, one truly kooky set of relationships, and one that I’m completely loving reading. Not the *behavior* mind you for what I love, but rather the *drama* that results from the behavior going on here; I hope this doesn’t offend you, Ma’am (again, being polite- I don’t see any reason to be rude to a neighbor- I could address you as “Miss” if that suits you better in your preferences of title, it’s up to you, or I could address you by your first name, but that doesn’t seem secure in this forum aside from the private messages, so I’m unlikely to do that.), but you did say you wanted people to review and to be gentle, which I’m trying to do both here. In conclusion of this statement prior to your reply, I want to say that I do not want to fight at all, I’m loving this little universe you’ve made here, and don’t want to lose it or discourage it- the behavior is a totally different story, but the story itself is what I want to take delight in. Sincerely your fan; Krulos.

    "Buffy's Bitch", by Oric13.

    Yes it is, Oric13 and I have been emailing to one-another over a period of time, and he told me that he’s planning on continuing, but tends to get caught up in real life, apparently. (I’m going to protect his privacy too, as I don’t want to be rude, so that’s why I left out a lot of the reasons why he’s not been updating as much recently) But he did say that he wants to continue writing his stories- and loves to hear from fans what they think about his ideas! Please, folks, keep on telling him what you think of his works!
  10. Story title is up to the writer, just please do write to me with the title and pairing, and allow me to read it and tell you what I think.Ideas/questions/comments: feel free to ask write to me and ask.Challenger wants: Weirdness.Challenger doesn't want: excessive cursing/rude language- fighting: okay (as this would be a fallen family situation). Especially since Faith is basically bullying Buffy in a lot of ways now, so she'd likely push Buffy until Buffy fights back successfully + consistantly, but that's unlikely, as Faith would now have some magic aids on her side. The reason Joyce doesn’t stand up for Buffy is because she loves and believes her wife, Faith Lehane-Summers. Favoritism abounds here in this storyline- and that’s the “big bad” involved in this!Requested Length: 8 to 10 chapters inclusive of good length- a novella, or better yet, more.Here it is:Faith winds up Buffy's stepmom during Season 3 by her marrying Joyce Summers after Joyce and Hank divorced.This would not be a happy relationship; this is Season 3 Faith, and she's jealous of Buffy, so she proceeds to steal Buffy's friends and make them *her* friends, she has already become the disciplinarian of the home, and helps Dawn to rise up while acting to "hold Buffy down" (due to her jealousy), and patrols are *WEIRD*!Sometimes, Faith sleeps with her wife, Joyce, in Buffy's bed while Buffy's out.This rendition of Faith would be tender with Joyce and Dawn and Buffy's friends (partly to isolate Buffy from her circle of friends and to replace her in their hearts), but rather rough with Buffy, figuring that "she can take it", partly also to help to isolate her from them as well, so by the end Buffy feels like an outsider in her own family, while her stepmom, who just moved into the family, has virtually taken over!This would not be to advocate *for* this kind of behavior, but to advocate *against* it, by showing it as dark and perverse indeed! There would be also some of Faith working with Principal Snyder, she meets with him and promises him that she'll keep her stepdaughter Buffy (who's also her classmate as well) in line intending to do dark and twistedly painful things to her as punishment). Faith would wind up pretty popular, and aim to bump Buffy out, literally, as the blonde puts it: "Single white femaling me", only literally here: she's making her a social outcast.Simple idea, when Buffy's 18 in her senior year of High School, at that time Faith's 21, but since Faith's just back in High School after dropping out, she's her classmate- she also charms Buffy's friends.One possible scene is that she shows Xander her wedding ring when Xander doubts that she's married to Joyce Summers, this is after she's told her stepdaugther Buffy "You just wait till we get home, then you're going to get it." to the laughter of her newly stolen friends, including Willow and Xander, who she stole by making Buffy out to be the bad girl- due to Buffy objecting to her mom marrying another woman, who just happens to be her classmate!Faith maneuvered Buffy into yelling at Willow, so that the two would fight, and by that she ruined their friendship, then she approached and comforted Willow- this is also before "Consequences" definitely and likely before "Bad Girls", so she was able to keep Xander as her biggest fan- she didn't sexually assault him in this storyline, but they stayed friends, and then she proceeds to isolate Buffy from her friends- she's kind of bullying her elder stepdaughter while befriending her younger one, so as to isolate Buffy from even her own little sister!The way Faith maneuvered Buffy into yelling at Willow and Willow into yelling at Buffy was that she made certain that Buffy knew that Faith is Mrs. Summers' wife now- so then she managed to get Willow into asking Buffy what's wrong, and Buffy issues some kind of, as Willow puts it "homophobic comment" and that sets Willow off, and before you know it; Buffy's best friend isn't speaking to her! Faith also moves to isolate Buffy from her frenemy, Cordelia Chase, by befriending Miss Chase. This is the general gist of it, and I'd very much like to see what you can do with this.Final requirement: have fun! Not worth doing if you don't have fun- I really want to see what people can make of this odd pairing story!

    Cordelia's Mistress: Tara!

    Does she also kiss her in that scene? I am intensely curious.
  12. I think one such story is titled "Mistress" on AO3. That one has a very naughty Dawnie, based on what she's doing to her fellow students, mother, and sister. Sincerely: Krulos.
  13. I'm confused, what are those "Georgian Toasting Forks", and where and what is "my little Camelot"? Would you please help me understand? I'd really appreciate it.

    1. BronxWench


      Georgian toasting forks were used during the Georgian period of British history to make toast:

      The reference to my little Camelot was a play on the song from the musical, "Camelot" when King Arthur sings to Guinevere about the bucolic nature of his kingdom:

      Hopefully this will help alleviate the confusion.

  14. This sounds intreguing and fun to read, I hope somebody takes it up. Perhaps Buffy enslaves Dawn as a punishment for crossing the line about her chores. I myself am working on a story of a similar nature: Slayer Sorceress, involving the idea of "how much of a Slayer is a demon, I mean really?" and the idea of "What if Buffy was also magickally gifted- and started abusing Dawn (amongst others)." I do enjoy a good story involving "older sister bullying younger sister" and when "older sister brings in her friend to help her pick on her younger sister" for some odd reason- this looks right up my alley: Buffy and possibly Willow bully Dawn together! Ooh, Bad Buffy as a premise to a story- this ought ot be fun! Sincerely: Krulos.
  15. Do you take up your own challenges, DG? I know that I often make a habit thereof.
