Review of chapter "The Zippo" from FrolickingNomad
Review:
A little Marx Brothers nitpicking: Zeppo was the fourth brother (Gummo was the fifth). He was also the most underrated of them -- took an equal part in writing, but played the straight man. After he left the act, their movies started going downhill. I've always thought Zeppo was actually a pretty good parallel for Xander: seems on the surface to be contributing nothing, but is actually important for providing balance and holding things together.

Good story.
Comments from author:
Thanks - I called him the fifth because (like the fifth Beatle, who was actually the third or fourth I think) he is the one who left early and isn't remembered much, but I appreciate it isn't entirely correct. It's sometimes a little difficult to put things like that across simply.

Review:
WTF!!
Comments from author:
Long story - for a while someone was complaining about any story that called Xander "The Zeppo," and saying it should be Zippo. I took it literally...

I really hate super-Xander halloween stories, or super anyone else for that matter, so I like to subvert the idea occasionally.

Review of chapter "The Zippo" from (Past Donor)Mari
Review:
Great, humorous twist on the YAHF superXan stories. And Willow sobbing at the end about his misspelling was a good touch.

Best YAHF ever :)
Comments from author:
I don't write many YAHF because I think there are already WAY too many out there, but some ideas really need to be written.

No idea - the story I originally noticed seems to have gone too, or the summary has been changed anyway.

Cute, in a horrid "crispy critter" way.

Don't you hate broadcasting the punchline of a joke? LOL

Review of chapter "The Zippo" from (Current Donor)MaxGSandeman
Review:
You wouldn't think that Zeppo was a brother to the others.

I remember Groucho on "You Bet Your Life". That might make an interesting story.
Comments from author:
He doesn't look much like the others, that's for sure. I think he was the straight man for many of their acts.
