Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
One of the finest ficlets I've read in a while...the implications of wishing indeed.
Comments from author:
I wish I knew what made me think of it - one of my stranger ideas!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Well, that's one way to get rid of the whole werewolf curse issue! (I'd forgotten -- or perhaps 'repressed,' since it really wasn't a very good show -- that it was a nuclear waste dump on the moon that had caused the initial orbital departure.)
Comments from author:
I'm a little amazed nobody thought of it before.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from justaguy
Review:
Minor point, they did show Earth once after the moon left. There was a second season episode where Moonbase Alpha made contact with Earth some 300 years or so in the future (I’ve been using Netflix to catch up on my old school sci-fi). Earth tried to bring the Alphans back using an advanced transported but an accident ended up trapping the first group in Earth’s past.

What little we saw of Earth showed a planet subject to lots of unpredictable earthquakes and a landscape that could hardly be described as ‘scenic’.

And through the magic of Wiki the episode was entitled “Journey to Where”.
Comments from author:
Must have missed that one - I think I gave up on the show pretty much by the end of the first season.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from orangemike
Review:
Ah, that's as fine an exemplar of Sturgeon's "Go on to the next question" as I've ever seen in a fanfic!

Thanks!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from mendenbar
Review:
Very unique concept. I well remember Space 1999, Martin Landau and Barbara Bain. The only sticky point is what the departure of the moon will do to the earth? Tides are pretty important in the oxygen renewal cycle. Stagnant oceans would kill everyone.
Comments from author:
Did anything in that story imply a happy ending for anyone apart from Willow getting what she wanted? I think that the Earth is doomed - but it'll take a while.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
When I started reading your little story I was quite happy that a wish was actually making things better. A more advanced space program couldn't be bad, right? Then the deaths and disasters began to build up. Well done Anya or whichever "Justice Demon" answered Willow's wish.

I really hope Willow never realizes what havoc her wish brought about. No moon, no tides. Man, is the Earth's ecology going to be screwed up. And did the huge tidal strains caused by Luna's close approach set off any fault lines? Or volcanoes? Not to mention real "tidal waves"? I hope the Yellowstone mega-volcano didn't go off. Not to mention I am sure Luna's exit took out all the orbiting satellites when it left. Now THAT was a wish! Lol!
Comments from author:
It's notable that Space 1999 never returned to show what Earth was like after the moon left orbit. I wonder why... ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Greywizard
Review:
Now that is definitely a different take on granting a wish.

Very nice.

Sometimes the only way from A to B is via Z. And if you want to cause trouble, and D'Hoffryn always does, that's maybe the way to go.
