Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Kumayasha
OK in all the time that I've looked into buffy crosses I have to say that I never thought of having Lois become a slayer. After reading just the summery of this fic now it's 'why not'?
All in all I Really Really liked it, the whole thing. I will say that at first I thought Clark was being an idiot but then this would have been before he really started doing the superhero gig and well some lessons you have to learn the hard way... case in point 'NEVER make a deal with a demon!'.
I apologize in advance for the upcoming rant, I understand Clark's ignorance and restraint, its just one of my pet peeves concerning anyone even heroes in buffy crosses having problems with dusting vamps.
I know some try to argue that vamps are alive and all in the buffy verse and truthfully I AGREE they are BUT by canon vamps in the buffy verse do not have anything but the memories and the body of the victim, whats powering it is a demonic essence called over from one of the hell planes when one vamp makes another. When a vamp is 'killed' that essence goes back to hell waiting to be called again (was Whedon's way of explaining the clothes being destroyed with the vamp, Demonic burn up). It's partly because of this (and they were just F#$^ing angry) that the Gypsies justified Cursing Angellus rather then simply stake him , even years later. In that logic if Angellus was killed in theory his essence could come back as another vamp and kill again even if it didn't remember being Angellus. Case is point by buffy canon killing vamps isn't killing them, your deporting them! Their basically the cockroaches of the underworld. Add to that by the myth that Giles explains several times Vampires are a plague that a Old one inflicted on man when it was banished from earth so the fact that they can act so human is BY DESIGN.....
By canon once this is explained/showed to someone they should have no problem 'killing' vampires, It's a service like killing wild rats they only spread death and disease. And now I'm probably going to get flamed, Like I said its one of my pet peeves.
Let me say again that I Very much liked your story and sorry if my rant taints my review.
Comments from author:
I took no offense from the rant. In Clark's defense, first he wasn't exposed to Watcher dogma about vampires and the soul throughout much of the story. In the second place, he might be reluctant to take what the watchers said on the issue at face value. After all, the watchers believed vampires incapable of love, which is incorrect. If he'd heard about Spike, he might even wonder if vampires were capable of redemption, even if they weren't actually the original people whose memories they possessed.
We, of course, have the benefit of the Word of the man in the sky (Joss Whedon), and so we know the truth. From within a universe it's harder. Do souls even exist...is there an afterlife...can beings without souls make moral decisions, and if they can't, does that excuse their actions? People have been arguing questions like this in the real world for millennia without any definitive proof.
I think it'd be hard for someone like Superman, who doesn't kill to make that transition. Of course, he destroys robots without blinking an eye, and some of them are sentient, so it might not be impossible.
In any case, thanks for reading the story, and I'm glad you liked it.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from vidicon
An excellent story that deals with human weakness and morality and manages to mix the Superman and Buffy verses in one of the best ways I've ever read. Considering that I dislike crossing with superhero verses, that you managed to hold my interest beyond the first two chapters is an amazing achievement. I thank you for a great read.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from EmberQuill
Really well done! And I really like how the whole dynamic of the relationship between Lois and Clark is changed by her becoming a Slayer.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from JJDudeman
I have always loved this one. The way you tie so much together, like the Knights/Glory site turning up as a mass grave, to Wilkins, to the beautiful Faith/Lois bonding scene (not to mention the best, most straightforward explanation of Faith's fall ever).
And Lois is great in this. It makes me sad traditional Lois isn't a slayer so she and Clark could have this relationship.
One thing: is it Angela or Angelica?
It's so painful to see Angela/ica and Marcus before and after turning, that's well done. One thing I actually have never understood was what happened to them to start - were they taken by vamps in disguise as government agents, or random vamps? Marcus wouldn't be fooled by vamps amongst the bodies they were working with...
Whatever. This is one of my favorite stories here and the reason I love this site - gotta remember to bump off one of my other recs to include it.

Review of chapter "Research" from DieselDriver
What the heck is a "Diener"? Dictionary dot com hasn't got it. I've never heard of it and I've been to a college or two. I read a LOT and I've never seen the word before. And the spell check here flags it as misspelled.
Comments from author:
It's the person in the morgue who moves the bodies, cleans the bodies and maybe cuts them open. They do the grunt work in the morgue.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from chrysanthemum
Fantastic story. I really don't know how you do it. There was just the right level of tension, and of introspection, and of each world. The plot was engaging but allowed for the relationships to come out. Thanks for a great read!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Rune
I'm giving you a nine because as far as I can tell you did not have Amy killed. And I'm not sure you have Clark killing vamps either. Both are bad things. Otherwise great fic. Thanks.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Midnmax
I am just not seeing how Clark is a hero. He seems just like a fool to me. He would rather become a slave to evil instead of destroying evil. That's not the actions of a hero - that's what the Nazi collaborators did. He puts the lives of murderers as equal with the lives oaf the victims and would allow the murderers to keep on killing because he is too weak to stop them. What a moron.
Comments from author:
Yet, for the most part this is how he is in canon, determined not to kill no matter the cost. You may as well ask how many people have died because the Batman didn't kill the Joker...it's not a question you'll see raised in the comics.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from lunalurker
Another fantastic story! A very unexpected take on this kind of crossover, and much darker than I thought it would be, even with Lois becoming a Slayer. The big bad was really out of left field too. I actually got kind of squicked out a few times at the issues that were raised. Triggers and all that. Glad I kept going though, it turned out to be a pretty satisfying climax and resolution all around.
I've been following you since I tripped over Legend, and will cheerfully continue to do so. So feel free to keep on writing, it's great stuff!
