Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Zeviz
This story was so interesting and well-written that I couldn't stop reading it until the end (over the course of a couple days). I didn't know anything about Veronica Mars, but the background included in the story (plus a couple pages on Wikipedia) were enough to make everything understandable.
I especially liked the premise of a character being explicitly put into a world that was fictional for her, and having to work under severe restrictions on what she could reveal.

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Xanadugrrl
I almost forgot about this story, and when I was perusing the site, noticed that it was completed. This was awesome- you did a good balance of figuring out the major changes, and although I was sad to see Faith die, I LOVED that Vi was a slayer that was called.

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Traszgo
I have never seen Veronica Mars (I will be correcting that shortly), but I didn't feel I was missing anything reading this. You covered all the relevant details very smoothly. I really liked the distinct voice you gave everyone, very recognizable for the ones I was familiar with and very interesting for the ones I was not.
And I lol'd at the references to Kristin Bell's other appearances (never be on the cover of Cosmopolitan, and gossip girl so not being her, were the two I caught). =)

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Spica
Not the kind of story i usually like, i also tend to dislike 1st person narrative, and i´ve seen maybe 1 or at most a total of 2 episodes worth combined of Veronica Mars, but this story was superb enough that i finished it in 3 days.
Definitely one of the best i´ve read. And Sheila became a very good character. And managing such an extensive story without more OCs, impressive.
The two first introductions to Scooby gang are both treated as if it was a first time for Veronica.
She only found out about 3 wifes of Ted, yet 4 are referenced later as if all knew it from her investigation.
And a later small one, small enough that i now have forgotten what it was. Whoops. :)
So, do we get to see a story named "Universe Three"? ^_^

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Kalliza
I love how unique the plot idea here is, and I thought the way you put it together is marvelous. I'd actually love to know what happens in the Angelverse, too, if you ever feel like writing a companion piece. :D

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from AbscondingCascade
To Quote Robert Dwayne "Bobby" Womack: "Leave them wanting more and you know they'll call you back." Or to alter it to fit this better "Leave them wanting more and you know they'll read your fics". I take my hat off to you, and give the offer that if I ever finish my novel that you'll be one of the people I give permission to write fiction in my own personal little continuum.
As that was brilliant, absolutely brilliant on a scale that breaks all measuring devices. In thanks ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfbxqyzblnU

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Starfox
Great story! I read it in almost one setting, interrupted only by sleep, and it made me order the entire Veronica Mars series too.

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from breve
finally finished this.
really enjoyed most of it.
the ending was a little prolonged, was really tempted to skip most of the episode guide, but didn't want to miss anything important.

For someone who knows nothing about Veronica Mars but what I can find in Wikipedia, this was a very enjoyable story. I look forward to reading your other works.

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from lunalurker
The epic was finally completed! Huzzah! And this story really did turn out to fit all the definitions of the word "epic", too, so I feel I must use it despite how overused it can be these days.
The story was great and greatly enjoyed, and a lot of detailed thought obviously went into some sections and plottings, and the melding together of the two worlds was one of the best I've seen on this site. Enough that it makes me want want a sequel on the further adventures of Upgraded Veronica, though I'm pretty sure you're more than done with this idea by now and shudder at the thought of doing more. Oh well...
Well done, and thank you very much for writing and continuing to write. :)

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Callista
I liked the story a lot, for the most part. only the chapters with the 'episode guides' were a bit on the long-and-not-that-interesting side. While I liked that we were able to see what would happen after all Veronica's interventions, I still didn't think the chapters were that interesting to read. Still, great story!

Review of chapter "Epilogue: Universe Three" from Listener
I really enjoyed this story. By putting limits on what Veronica was and wasn't able to do, you removed a lot of the "change for change's sake" that many "drop a character into the Buffyverse" stories do. I also enjoyed your little insertions, such as "out for a walk... bitch". I think you definitely have the character voices down pat, and I love how important you made Backup to everything that went on.
I do think at times that you may have gone TOO big with the story -- bringing in all of Veronica's baggage, letting the "who raped Veronica Mars" angle just die out like that, trying to work all of Veronica's first-season story angles into everything... and then, the ending, with the final reckoning. I'm kind of curious if you started to realize the episode rundown was getting tiring to read (and probably write), or it was planned that way all along to stop after the lack of "The Gift".
Overall, as I said, I found this to be a good piece, nice and long (TWSS, right?) and, most importantly, COMPLETED. I think the final chapter (after we got to Universe Three) was done quite nicely, and I'm certain that Veronica is either going to (a) make things even better or (b) overthink it so much that she makes it worse -- which, of course, plays right into The Adversary's hands, doesn't it?
And, on an unrelated note... your story "Perfect World" was the primary inspiration for this one, which I've been posting for a few weeks now: http://tthf.me/5lDu

Review of chapter "Teacher's Pest" from Listener
I don't normally review mid-story, but I had to pause and compliment you on your succinct synopsis of every LKH book from Narcissus in Chains onward.
BTW, she's said on twitter that no major characters die in Kiss the Dead, which means even more superpower laden hot guys with long hair and interesting eyes for Anita to sleep with.
