Review:
Okay, that's a beautiful, twisty drabble, and I love the fact that you hit three fandoms in it. Excellent!

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from utilitariancaramel
Review:
Ahahahaahahaha!

And, on second thought, ew. How hard up was Xena that night?
Comments from author:
Ah, but Hercule Poirot was young and handsome in those days. Actually he wouldn't be born for 2,500 years, but you know what I mean.

His canon attraction was to Countess Vera Roskoff, who was also taller than Poirot and rather flamboyant. And Xena will never have met anyone as dapper as Poirot - because the concept wasn't around in Ancient Greek days.

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from Tetraform
Review:
I have to say this is story was complete dribble, and resembles the work of a 5 year old with too much time on their hands. In the words of Jay Pinkerton, reading this is quite literally "like going to the bathroom after a six-burrito lunch, and the toilet paper is YOUR EYES."
Comments from author:
That's a very vitriolic review for a 100-word drabble that can hardly have wasted more than a few seconds of your time. It's amused quite a few people and that's all that I was trying to do.

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from ashez
Review:
I don't want to discourage you or anything, but when you finish writing your fic and you discover the disclaimer is longer than the actual fic, something is very very wrong.
Comments from author:
From the TTH Site Rules:

Rule 5: All fics posted to the site must be at least 100 words in length. This does not include the word count of the disclaimer, author's notes or song lyrics.

Rule 10: Fanfic must be posted with a complete disclaimer that states you claim no rights to copyrighted material. This is not negotiable. Fanfics found in violation of this rule may be removed. Please go back and read this one again. No exceptions to this rule. You violate it and the fic can and probably will be removed.

From urbandictionary.com:

Drabble: A short piece of writing consisting wholly of 100 words - no more, no less. Generally used in fanfiction.

This story is exactly 100 words in length, no more, no less, and so is a true drabble.

My usual disclaimer was dictated to me by the legal representatives of Eden Studios, at the time the holders of the license to produce the Buffy Role-playing Game, when I applied to them to have my site linked on theirs. They told me that I must use that exact format and that, if I did, Fox would never raise any objections to my gaming or fiction material. Consequently I am the only person on this site who can be absolutely certain that I obey Rule 10 and that I will never get a ‘Cease and Desist’ order. For this fic I added equally formal references to Poirot and the Hercules and Xena shows. On reconsideration I decided that I could remove the reference to ‘Hercules, the Legendary Journeys’, as the drabble could mean the mythical Hercules, and I have edited the disclaimer down to exactly 100 words as well.

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from arkeus
Review:
Wisecracking, uh?
You are in a "i am your father" mood? does that mean irenicus will soon say i am your father to Willow??? or maybe someone else to Xander, who knows...
Comments from author:
I wrote this one two years ago and when I did the Darth Vader one it reminded me of this and I decided to post it as well.

Irenicus won't be doing the 'I am your father' bit - as the whole BG story revolves around Sorkatani's father issues I can't be bothered to explore the concept anywhere else in Tabula Avatar. Well, except Rupert and Randy.

If I come up with any other 'I am your father' ideas for Xander I'll add them as further chapters to this, but I haven't anything in mind at the moment.

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from Feyn
Review:
Very... different. But good all the same.

And in reply to an earlier review, this most definitely is a drabble; it's a work of exactly 100 words.
Comments from author:
My own feelings about the disclaimer being longer than the drabble was that it was amusing in itself. However I've rewritten the disclaimer to be exactly 100 words as well, which I think is even funnier. And it is exactly in accordance with site rules 5 and 10.

Thank you, and thanks for your support as well.

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from CPTSkip
Review:
Lol! I am still trying to figure out how Xena and Poirot got together. But it funny to think about. Lol!
Comments from author:
I have a rough outline done for the Xena/Poirot story, 'Murder at the Acropolis', but I don't know when I'll get round to writing it.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from Cutiepie
Review:
That was so bizarre that I am just in shock, I think. Twisted, strange, weird, uh . . . where's my thesaurus so I can come up with some more? But, it did make me laugh. In startled disbelief, but laugh nonetheless.
Comments from author:
Poirot/Xena isn't even the strangest pairing that I've done. That would be Sark/Sydney.

The island of Sark and the city of Sydney, Australia, that is.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from tactless
Review:
Neat, I liked that...of course the best part was the fact that the disclaimer was longer than the story...So, um, when is Xander going to grow the mustache?
Comments from author:
While he's in Africa - although keeping it waxed in the Democratic Republic of Congo might be a problem.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from ShadowWolf
Review:
Very funny, although Hercule (Air-Kyoo) sounds nothing like Hercules (Her-Kyoo-Leez).
Comments from author:
If I'm going to ignore the 2,500 year time difference between Xena and Poirot I think that I can ignore the pronunciation differences as well. And hey, Xander. He could mishear anyway. A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest...

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Paternity Case" from Allyndra
Review:
Hercule Poirot as Xander's father! HA! Xena as his mother. HAHA! Big warrior Xena with little eggheaded Belgian. HAHAHA! That's me almost choking on the funny. I think Xan should grow a big, carefully groomed mustache. And start throwing a Chakram. It would rule!
Comments from author:
Certainement, mon ami! Zee leetle grey cells, and zee patent leather shoes, and zee chakram. Gather zee suspects in zee library and then give them all zee good kicking.

Merci!
