Review of chapter "Chapter One" from BlueEyedBrigadier
Review:
A sheer, unadulterated classic, Greywizard! The sheer magnitude of the comedy of errors and reality warping that came of it is astounding and hilarious! I can only imagine Buffy's equilibrium being badly skewed finding out Xander's a warlord after defeating a non-space alien version of the Predator!

Any musing of a sequel?

;D
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the story and its mind-blowing insanity. ;-)

Anything more regarding this is entirely up to my muse's whims.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from csad
Review:
This story was hilarious! And it makes so much hellmouthy-sense too! :D

I really like the idea used in some fics about Xander being the chosen one of Chaos, and fics like this one always remind me of why that is such an awesome idea (and possibly even true). :P

Though unfortunately, it kept bringing back vague memories of an old movie (possibly a Jerry Lewis movie?) where something similar happens to the dorky hero, and now it's gonna bother me for days until I can remember the title again. *sigh*
Comments from author:
Yeah, I was trying to evoke the 'the Hellmouth makes weird things far more likely to happen' trope that Joss used in the 'Nightmares' and 'Out of Sight, Out of Mind' episodes in Season One.

I'm also somewhat surprised that he didn't make any use of that trope in later seasons (aside from the very minor allusion to it in Season Four's 'Superstar'), since it would be a handy way to help establish reasons for any uber-wonky occurrences you might want to utilize. 0.0

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Musicalife
Review:
Did you write this with George Thorogood's Bad to the Bone on repeat? I loved reading about an accidently badass Xander and the many tropes involved making him that way!!!
Comments from author:
No, I didn't but it would have made a good soundtrack for the story, wouldn't it? ;-)

And this is exactly the way Joss & co. could have done things back then, but didn't because of PC convictions that sometimes overrode good story-telling.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from hjdevnull
Review:
Hahaha, this is a very funny and amusing story. I love how you take all those accidents and turn them into a way for Xander to get super powers. Cordy's parents cracked me up, too. Great stuff. =)
Comments from author:
Given the pervasive effect of the Hellmouth's energies, this seemed like something which was entirely plausible when it came to Xander. And given how disconnected Cordy's parents seemed to be, their reactions would probably be to assume that Cordy would be a major actor in everything going on. ;-)

Glad you enjoyed the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ivanjedi
Review:
You know, after having read this and Klimmatt's 'Xander as various x- men' Cyclops chapter, I'm beginning to think he was such a loser in the school exactly because of that effect; everyone thought him to be a loser, so he was, and later, with those knowing him either dying out or simply forgetting about him, he managed to get his life straight.
Comments from author:
That's a very interesting observation, and an excellent canon-compliant explanation for everything which happened in the course of the series.

I also noticed that you posted a challenge regarding this point, which I hope someone answers. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
Review:
Xander works for ZOWIE.

He is the son of Derek Flint, and the nephew of Angus MacGuyer on his mother's side.
Comments from author:
Now, *that* would be an interesting ploy bunyip for someone to pick up and run with. 0.0

I'll have to see exactly what my muse thinks about it. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Rune
Review:
Xander must also be the new god of luck.

Nice fic. Thanks.
Comments from author:
Thanks.

And that possibility is entirely up to what the local populace believes, so it's quite feasible that he could evolve into that ideal ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Review:
That was funny and enjoyable. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. :)
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the story. ;-)

It's a shame Joss didn't try to show something along these lines, instead of the garbage we eventually ended up with.
