Review of chapter "COBRA!" from Cdog
Review:
When I first started reading this I was like "Yeah the other one is better", but as I started getting closer to the end I was like "God I hate you". To be honest I don't see why you hadn't turned this one in to a full story instead of starting from scratch because to be honest it's closer to the time of GI Joe the movie which was hands down my favorite part of the GI Joe cartoon. Oh well at least we have a Snake Eyes Xander running around.
Comments from author:
Actually this takes place ater the first season of the cartoon and just prior to the second season's premier Arise, Serpentor, Arise! As hinted at by the fact that Mindbender is being introduced as are his B.A.Ts.

As for why I never made this into a full blown series, the answer to that is simple. I let it sit too long, I had trouble figuring out where to go with it, the Cobra Regenerated plots and scenes just came easier to me in the writing phase and I just had no idea where to take Xander's character. Would he remain trapped in Cobra Commander's body? Would Cobra Commander be thwarted by the Scoobies. Would he kill Giles before he could reveal what he did and enslave Buffy and Willow as part of his harem or something? I mean I couldn't figure it out too good. I was hoping somebody else might have a better idea where to take it and adopt the fic, but sadly my challenges have never been responded to. So I just finished it off and posted it up now. If anybody wants to adopt it I won't stop them, all I ask is that they tell people where the idea originated from.

Review of chapter "Look Buffy it's the Xanderbot" from JediKnight
Review:
Interesting update you posted, I hope you'll add more soon.
Do you take suggestions?
Comments from author:
I guess it would all depend on the suggestion, there are just some fandoms I can't get comfortable writing, which is probably why I still haven't written any Stargate fanfics.

Review of chapter "Remaking Reality" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Review:
I don't like the American version of the SM names. I've become used to the Japanese version, which always made more sense to me since the original show is in Japanese.

It doesn't seem like much of a crossover when you replace Xander & Willow with other people baring their names. The characters changed too quickly for me to feel any attachment between them and the originals.
Comments from author:
You know I had originally toyed with the idea of replacing the english names with their japanese equivalent since I used the term Youma twice. Unfortunately I am way more familiar with the english dub so I chose to just stick with it.

Also you seem to have missed the point of God's golden ball. The reason why Xander and Willow are acting differently is because God gave them a little gift that happens to include a memory re-write/wipe. If I or anyone else wanted to continue this story then I would have gone into further detail as to their changes with perhaps more of the original Xander and Willow personality coming through.

Notice after all that Dawn is still Dawn, since she never touched the Golden Ball of Change. But of course everyone is open to their own opinions of my work on the merit of what's there on the screen/page. After all what I intended for possible future chapters isn't exactly common knowledge outside my own head. I suppose you could think of it as Willow and Xander playing a part in a show or something. But anyway, it is nice to see at least one review for it, I was kind of hoping someone might comment on the whole God thing at the beginning, but it's nice to hear anything about the story. Helps me make informed decisions about my future projects after all. (Though I'm not sure if this one will have a future to be honest.)

Review of chapter "Discord's Legacy" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Review:
Not bad. I can see that role fitting Xander like a glove.
Comments from author:
Heh, that role just fell into place when I started the story. It definately could be something fun to work with, especially if I wanted to make a total smut fic and save the action for simple comedy moments or something.

Review of chapter "Brittany the Vampire Slayer" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Review:
Wow, talk about out of left field. Excellent work!
Comments from author:
Thanks for your review on this chapter, I was particularly proud of it myself and was a little dissapointed that nobody seemed to care enough to say anything about it. Then again maybe they were just stunned by the fact that I made a crossover with Alvin and the Chipmunks. LOL

Review of chapter "Discord's Legacy" from JediKnight
Review:
I'm really looking forward to you turning "Discord's Legacy" into a full-length story.
Comments from author:
I would love to eventually myself, alas I'm not sure if I can. I literally have no idea where to go with it. SIGH.
