Review of chapter "The Intro" from justmeherenobodyelse
Review:
I haven't read the other reviews, so this may have already been pointed out, but here goes:

As much as Xander might prefer to be stranded on an island dedicated to the Holy Twinkie, I'm fairly certain that you didn't intend to repeatedly call it a "dessert" island. You probably meant desert, but I'd go with deserted if I was doing the writing.

Dessert = the final course of a meal, usually involving something sweet and utterly bad for you.

Desert = a place that is barren, usually due to lack of rainfall, and which supports only sparse vegetation.

Deserted = uninhabited or abandoned

Given that Gilligan's Island supported a lush rainforest-like ecosystem, I'd definitely go with that last one.

That said, this looks like an amusing premise :)

Review of chapter "The Intro" from TheatricalBarrister
Review:
LOL! I couldn't stop laughing at this. This is a great setup for a series.

If you can't come up with definite ideas to move it along, you could always make the early stories similar to the format of the original show, with them struggling (in a humorous way, of course) to make the island habitable.

I agree with an earlier review, this is a completely cracked idea, but it surprisingly shows great promise for a series.
Comments from author:
Glad you like it. I may get back to this after dealing with some other fics that have more co-operative muses. The search for the meaning of how to break the curse and dealing with Oz's monthlies are definite reasons to do something more with it. I might open it up to let others contribute once I can develop some guidelines.

Review of chapter "The Intro" from Schiavona
Review:
Did you post this to some of the Xander centric yahoo groups four or five years ago?

It seems that each of the four women must bear children from all three men before one of the oldest children will be able to break the curse. Is this a correct interpretation?

While I'm enjoying both of your other stories currently, it seems like this story provides a greater potential for character development over time. Not only will they have to work together to survive. If my understanding of the Mayor is correct, each of them will have to come to terms with it and accept it. Plus, they have to deal with Oz during the full moon and any of the craziness that tended to happen to the castaways on what seemed to be an all too regular basis.

I hope that your muse decides to continue this story soon.

Thanks for posting it here for us to enjoy.

Review of chapter "The Intro" from LFW
Review:
What an amazing crossover
Just to make sure, they are still on their Earth?
Time flows just the same?
Jeez, what about Dawn... could the spell protect them all from Glory?
What an amazing idea
Thanks
Comments from author:
Same Earth.
Same time flow.
Dawn? When I wrote this I hadn't really thought about her but whenever I get around to continue it, I may have to consider it.
Glory's a god, not too bright, but still a god. However, the Mayor did say the ignore curse would prevent them from appealing to the gods for help with magic so I believe she would be affected.

Review of chapter "The Intro" from TOM
Review:
C'mon , man! This is just the beginning, right? Gimme more! I want to know everything about the Mayor's evil plan! And wow, what a setting! This story's gonna be so good!
Comments from author:
I agree that it needs to go on, but at the moment I'm a bit more involved with a couple of other stories. When they end, I'll see what I can do about prodding my Muse for this one.

Review of chapter "The Intro" from Dragonelf
Review:
Good story, however it kind of feels a bit incomplete.

:: Feeds the plot bunny some high energy plot bunny food!!!!!!!! ::

This fic really needs a SEQUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:: Looks pointedly at the "This story is complete" text ::

:: Gives the muse a huge jar of encouragement cookies ::
Comments from author:
At the moment this is all I've got on it. Though I hope to do more when I finish some of my other stories. The Muse for this one isn't too energetic at the moment.

Review of chapter "The Intro" from purrfus
Review:
Apparently too much fan fic is a dangerous thing.

Absolutely hysterical - I laughed so hard a coworker came to check. She did not find it funny at all. So either I've been warped by too much fan fic or she needs a dark and twisted humor transplant.

This is so deliciously evil.

Please come back to it soon.

Review of chapter "The Intro" from CPTSkip
Review:
Complete! Complete? In the name of sanity, please tell us there will be more! This has to be one of the most ... insane? ... unique? ... bizarre? ... funny? ... setups for any crossover I've ever read and there must be more. Please?
Comments from author:
I have vague ideas but other fics need to be finished before I can focus on this one.

I don't remember almost anything of "Gilligan's island" 'cause I'm in Italy and I think last time they run it on TV was about 20 years ago, but I'm curious and then ,please, keep writing .

Review of chapter "The Intro" from Greywizard
Review:
Well, this is definitely not a crossover that I ever expected to see. ;-)

Good job, though. You are going to be following up on this one, right? 'Cause leaving the Gang there in that situation is just mean. ;-)

How they are going to protect themselves from Oz when he changes is just one of the problems that they're facing, although I would think it is one of the more important ones.

Anyway, when can we expect a sequel?
Comments from author:
Unfortunately, not any time soon. I need to finish A.F.E.W. and Let's Make A Deal first.
