> "Five feet ten inches tall, 180 pounds, brown hair, brown eyes. **He** will be carrying a rifle"

If Riley was quoting from one of the descriptions they gave, that "He" could have been a problem too.

Review of chapter "The Woman Men Don't See" from (Past Donor)Ponder
Review:
Nice story. I remember reading one or two BW stories that Asimov published in his own magazine way back when.

Giles,” he said/
Giles,” he said.

You might consider binding your BW stories into a series here on TtH, now that you've explicitly tied their storylines together. :)

I've noted of late a tendency for the adjectival form to start being spelled consistently in either way, either with or without the e, for both men and women in mainstream works. At least in adjective form, the blonde/blond distinction is also starting to go the way of brunet/brunette, save that both spellings are being retained. If that list had gone with the more recent usage, and used one or the other to consistently refer to the blonde man and woman in the party, perhaps the demons would have been satisfied. :)

It is still considered wrong in most circles to misapply the spellings in noun form, but in Finn's supplied list, they were adjectives, correct?

Hmm. Which would be considered correct noun usage to refer to a mixed group of men and women with that color hair... Blonds, or Blondes? :)

Review of chapter "The Woman Men Don't See" from Geyer
Review:
It's been 25 years or more since I've read the tales of the Black Widowers, but this seems very much in keeping with the originals, with their seemingly inexplicable puzzles solved with the help of Henry's talent for spotting what others have overlooked. You did a good job fitting a Buffyverse puzzle into this setting. Very nice...and now I feel like tracking down and re-reading "Nothing Like Murder" and "The Cross of Lorraine," both of which stick in my mind after all this time, even though the "Murder" solution was a bit of a let-down. Thanks for bringing the Black Widowers into the present.

Review of chapter "The Woman Men Don't See" from Selori
Review:
So good to see the Black Widowers again! Ya gotta love the classics.

Wow, that's the only word in English that does that? (btw, is brunet/brunette not valid English, but a borrowing from French?) Very cool. I love these stories!
Comments from author:
In common English. "Brunette" is the only way I've ever seen it spelled, whether it's referring to a man or a woman. I believe "brunet" is archaic, these days.

Review:
Hah! Nice! And the title twists so perfectly into it too!

And I like how you get that particular distinction correct - it's a personal private peeve of mine when reading a story and the author refers to, for examples, Buffy as a "blond" or Cloud Srife as a "blonde."

And can I just say a great big "Hello Again" to the Black Widowers? I read several of their stories some years back, and they were always quite enjoyable! Bravo for capturing their spirit so well!
