Review of chapter "Barbie Girl / Soldier Boy" from Gideon
Review:
Ok, the kickass barbie was much cooler. But the underachieving GI Joe was funny too.
The fact that Dawn loved the barbie was just awesome.
Comments from author:
Well, it's more that Buffy has a fake memory of her loving it, but yes, I think it's something that might appeal to her.

Review of chapter "Barbie Girl / Soldier Boy" from bookaholicau
Review:
I love telling people the real life story, and regularly wish I'd gotten one of them. I really enjoyed that story.
Comments from author:
It's such a bizarre incident I'm surprised that there isn't more fiction about it.

Review of chapter "Barbie Girl / Soldier Boy" from Arianith
Review:
I wish that I had gotten this Barbie as a gift. I would have loved it.
Comments from author:
If they had any sense they'd issue replicas as a boxed set - it's already too late for the 10th and 15th anniversary, but maybe for the 20th in 2013...

Review of chapter "Barbie Girl / Soldier Boy" from Cutiepie
Review:
Heh. Makes me dislike Warren even more, destroying a helpless toy like that. Any chance Warren's middle name is actually Sid (as in the neighbor kid from "Toy Story")? Yeah, I completely agree that Warren is self-centered and impatient with anything that doesn't go exactly as he imagined.

As for Buffy, since Dawn was included, it must have been a memory "rewrite". Does that make it some sort of self-fulfilling prophecy as Buffy was the slayer when the memory was created, and/or became the slayer after when the memory was set? Did the incident ever actually occur, or did the monks make it up whole cloth?

[The above review was edited after I received the reply from the author.]
Comments from author:
If Sid is the kid from Toy Story (can't remember) he was certainly in the back of my mind, but my thoughts were more that Warren is a control freak who has no patience if things don't go as planned.

Review of chapter "Barbie Girl / Soldier Boy" from Bugeyedmonster
Review:
lol!

Hey, when I was a little girl I would have loved a Barbie doll who talked like GI Joe. (I was already watching Charlie's Angels, Wonder Woman and The Avengers, I would have so detested a Barbie doll who talked about the beach and her clothes.)

Not surprised Warren burnt the doll he stole though.
Comments from author:
My thoughts on this were that Warren would have no patience with anything that didn't work as he expected - that's certainly what happened with April and presumably with his relationships. Someone else might have persevered with the chip to see why it was behaving oddly, and with April to develop the technology and stop her following him around.

Review:
Also Sarah Michelle Geller did the voice for the Gwendy dolls in Small Soldiers, so this works even better...
Comments from author:
I'd forgotten that. Excellent!

Review of chapter "Barbie Girl / Soldier Boy" from NyxxNoxx
Review:
Can I say just how much I love this? -wipes tears from eyes- I can't stop laughing over it. Poor Buffy, fate was calling.
Comments from author:
Possibly. Remembering that Dawn's in the frame, this is mostly a fake memory, not reality.
