Just delightful! And I also hope that real life becomes nice and calm or whatever your preferred lifestyle is soon so you can write some more someday. Thanks for writing!

Review of chapter "Some Things Are Just Bound to Happen" from (Recent Donor)deitarionSSokolow
Review:
Very interesting idea... and I've read a LOT of Buffy fanfiction so that really means something. Not only the choice of an MFM cross, but just the idea of beating Giles to the punch, period. Either one could make for a fascinating story, but you managed to combine both. I especially like the dynamic which started to develop between Buffy and Uncle Martin.

I hope you eventually decide to continue this.
Comments from author:
I really, really want to get back to writing, but my Real Life has been in a near-constant state of upheaval for nearly three years now.

There is light on the horizon, though, so I'm hoping I can at least finish the stories I have posted if not do new ones as well!

You know...some day.

Review of chapter "Some Things Are Just Bound to Happen" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
This tale is delightful.

I can actually parse out Martin's dialogue in the proper voice, a good sign you've got his characterisation dead on.

Thank you. Please take it where it seems to go.

Review of chapter "Some Things Are Just Bound to Happen" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Enjoying the AU elements and character moments. It should also be noted that "Uncle Martin" often said the word "Mars" in quotes, too. It just was the easiest most logical explanation. I always thought he could be from further way, perhaps even a time lord like Doctor Who... perhaps in the Celestial Intelligence Agency.
Comments from author:
Doctor Who would bring in another fandom, and I don't want to do that...at least not yet.

Review of chapter "Some Things Are Just Bound to Happen" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Thanks for updating! This is so interesting for a premise. I can't wait to see how Martin is able to help Buffy. Wonder how they're going to react to Giles when he finally tracks her down.

Great second chapter! And thanks for the little summary at the end :-) easier to like the new character with a bit of background on him. Can't wait to read more!

Review of chapter "Some Things Are Just Bound to Happen" from AllenPitt
Review:
I watched the show when it was on (Hey I was really young) so this brings back a lot of fond memories. Have to say, though, Martin is taking a terrible risk with Buffy's life--the Council plays hardball --and won't abide someone non-Council-y being in control of the slayer (as they would see it). PLUS... Giles has a lot to contribute. I'm hoping M & G can come to an understanding. And kudos for showing Wesley's problems were NOT about research ability...but lack of field experience.
Gee, I wonder what'll happen when Angel gets involved--he'll be delivering cryptic warnings about Harvests soon...and...does Martin know about such things? Have the same research material access Giles has? etc? Hm, and Jenny C is there, watching Angel(us) ---
Comments from author:
Uncle Martin only knows of the Council; he's not personally acquainted with it. It's entirely possible he doesn't yet realize how dangerous they can be.

As for Giles, he's a Watcher, and thus guilty by association. Uncle Martin is not infallible; there was one episode where he tried to fake having fingerprints (Martians don't) and wound up being suspected of burglary. Giles will have to prove himself, and just getting the chance may take some doing.

Review of chapter "The Replacement Watcher" from toastbox
Review:
Awesome chapter! Tho I'm not familiar with the crossover you've chosen, I've still found it very entertaining. Especially at the end where he extended a pair of antennas from his head. That was hilarious! :D

Anyways, awesome fic. Looking forward to the next update :)

Review of chapter "The Replacement Watcher" from batzulger
Review:
Uncle Martin will make a fantastic not-a-watcher. I'm tracking this one.

Review of chapter "The Replacement Watcher" from KzintiKiller
Review:
This is an intriguing cross. I can't wait to see how it plays out. Will Travers learn what has been unleashed? *g* How will Uncle Martin deal with Whistler and the Powers That Suck? Will he allow Angel within ten miles of Buffy?

Review of chapter "The Replacement Watcher" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Well, I thought Ray Walston, yeah. But I don't get how that other actor was supposed to look like Bill Bixby... but if you say so. The thing that I really liked about "My Favorite Martian" is that it was quite clear that "Uncle Martin" was from quite further away.

Revised: Thanks for the explanation.
Comments from author:
Well, Bill Bixby aged very well. If he'd put on weight and grown a mustache, he might have looked enough like Richard Riehle to make the crossover believable. Since he's not actually going to be seen in the story, I figured close enough.

Review of chapter "The Replacement Watcher" from SarahLou
Review:
Okay, so I've never seen 'My Favourite Martian', but I'm curious to see where this is going...if you do continue any chance you could just add a quick authors note at the beginning of the next chapter with a bit of background info on 'My Fav Martian' for those of us who haven't seen it and are too lazy to go looking for something ourselves?

Great first chapter :-) hope to read more soon?

Comments from author:
Sure, no prob. I'm about halfway through Chapter 2 now.
