I like this story so far. I have read one other Potter/Buffy crossover where Xander is Sirius Black's cousin and named his heir, and Harry's guardian. That's about the only similarity. This one doesn't appear to have the same level of 'bad Dumbledore' as the other, but you may be just getting started. Since these first seven chapters took abut two months for you to post, and it has been over three months since the last update, I fear this story has been abandoned. I hope that isn't the case. I would really like to see where you go from here. And for some reason, I would like to see Harry end up with Dawn. It doesn't appear that she is going to England though. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope you find the time and/or inspiration to finish this story.
