Review of chapter "The cuckoo clock" from HallowGreen
Nora's life gets even more madcap. A Grandfather clock which fires its cuckoo out with such force even a Slayer might not be quick enough to catch and stop it? A senior Slayer so annoyed she's likely to start tossing bits of building at Nora and Luna if they don't find a way to fix it before she has to kill them? If Dawn was here for all of this, she'd be laughing so hard she'd have to be carried out into the fresh air to recover.

Review of chapter "The cricket" from HallowGreen
Ophelia is still trying to persuade her Slayer girlfriend that she needs more sex? Good grief. Nice touch with Ophelia using her Siren abilities to make all of the Slayers miserable until she gets what she wants, though, especially with the comment "We've fought Demons, Gods and all sorts of other beings, how can we not find a single fly/bird?" or words to that effect. I almost miss Nora's entertaining Diary entries, mind, where you just have to imagine how they ended up in the situation they have based on what you learn second-hand from Nora's Diary entries...

Review of chapter "How we battled the Dharath’s birds by Nora, S-in-T" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Nice. Good monsters. The characters seem a bit overpowered and too well-connected.

Good tone. Seems like their social lives are rough ;)

Review of chapter "Future Ending" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Hey! I’ve never watched Terminator so some things sorta went over my head, but other than that…

a lonely, ageing soldier burdened down by responsibilities and expectations that were slowly draining what was left of her will to live out of her.
-------------------I like how you phrased that.

WOW. 48 and all those grey hairs and she was ‘old’ – bummer!

Nice observation on Dawn; I’d have to agree with that.

“I was afraid of that, she hasn’t been herself since the war began and the stupid woman never told me she was using her own life force to power her spells with the Spirit of Gaia so injured...
-----hmmm, very interesting!

but then he proved he was Human they way only a Human could: he wet himself and started gibbering in fear.

And very creepy Terminator scene in 2004. :/

Good chapter, m’dear :)

Review of chapter "How we battled the Dharath’s birds by Nora, S-in-T" from HallowGreen
Ah, Nora's back again, always a pleasure. Also, a Diary opening where the Author is told to stop writing in her Diary by the exasperated others? That's just a "Nora" opening somehow...

The entertaining on-going subplot where everyone believes that the Slayer, Annie, has a thing going on with Ophelia, the daughter of an Old One-despite repeated protests to the contrary by Annie herself-is also entertaining. A group of teenage/early twenties Slayers more than likely would spend all their time bitching about relationships, what's wrong with their lives and issues that you cannot understand unless your one of them. The difference here is that, with Slayers, their problems are bigger than most. For example, they're all throwing a hissy fit about their Watcher betraying them, turning into a Wyvern and becoming loyal to the bad guys, the fact that one of their number is having a relationship with an Old One's daughter while the rest of them don't even seem to have a love interest each-and, to some degree, the fact that Nora has somehow managed to bring her dog, Black, along on a mission again. A demonstration of just why even Slayers often need a strong leader before they can work successfully together, the way this is going Annies going to claw someone's eyes out soon...

Oh, I particularly enjoyed the bit where Annie is given the staff by Dharath after someone comments on her thing with Ophelia and nobody dares say a word, because they all know that Annie WILL ram her battleaxe in a random orfice if anyone says anything.

Review of chapter "How we battled the Dharath’s birds by Nora, S-in-T" from HallowGreen
I enjoyed this one, due to little things like Nora accidentally, literally, blowing the Dragons head off just before it eats the Slayers and Nora's dog somehow being along on the job as usual, but I think it's a shame this is the first Nora story not done using Diary style. Fun, as usual, which is always welcome, but we seem to have skipped over a section? Why did the Watcher, Stephen, betray them? How on earth did two Slayers, the Wind Slayer and Nora's dog get the job of fighting a Dragon, the creatures of an Old One and retrieving a Staff of some great power without even knowing what they were doing? Was Willow asleep? I'd have liked to see them bring along some Mage/Sorceress support for this. Still, good work again, will we find out what's going on here soon?

Review of chapter "The journal of Nora, the Slayer on duty on___" from HallowGreen
Another entertaining entry, with Nora trying to restrain homicidal Slayers from chopping up friends of hers-and her- while dealing with the Siren from Part One whose back and still chasing after her Slayer crush. As flowerpots fly, battleaxes get swung and various Mythological beings show up to tell the Slayers and Siren to keep the noise down or else, Nora decides she rather enjoys the "Motel" the Siren has brought them to, even though its not on the same Plane as they all live on, after their boat sinks... Keep up the good work!

Review of chapter "First day in the Slayers' academy by Dmitri" from HallowGreen
This story, confusing? It's so short we barely even know what's going on, let alone who this Slayer is or what she looks like, is up to, comes from? More detail in the sequel, please.

Review of chapter "The log of Nora, the Slayer on Watch Duty" from HallowGreen
This story had me grinning like an idiot after the first few lines. A bitchy fellow Slayer of Nora suddenly discovering she can be polite after a long shift because Nora has a big black dog as a pet? A Golem helping a being out of Mythology Court a Slayer who has no intention of doing anything but chopping his head off with a battleaxe? A Siren getting a crush on one of the Slayers and charming a Watcher to let her into the Academy so she can see her sweetheart? Lust Zombies? Light-hearted fun with an entertaining Slayer at the centre. Keep up the good work-and Black isn't a Hellhound, is he?

Review of chapter "Kiri Kim Finds Jesus... And Someone Else PART TWO" from HallowGreen
Kiri Kim joins a Street Gang, almost dies in a fight with another, gets better and then has to "kill" her Dad... These Slayers don't have easy lives, do they? All the same, Kiri strikes me as a better Slayer than Gretchen because, despite the apparent young death of her Father and family problems, she's out there and living, even if she's stuck somewhere between life and death for a chunk of the story. Also, taking on a Vampire who knows unarmed combat, loosing and then staking him wirth a pencil regardless? Pencils are definately underrated as a weapon of War.

Review of chapter "The Tale of Gretchen Brown and Her Beat-Down" from HallowGreen
Ouch...that's an unpleasant way of opening the story, with a young Slayer who looses her Mother to what might be Suicide and then accidentally Murders her Father. However, it works in the sense that anyone who thinks all Slayers are looked after by Watchers and never suffer any pain or loss in their lives because of family troubles can see, from this, that they do. Also, it's well-written enough that you care for Gretchen and hope she might find some peace at the Slayer Academy. A strong start.

Review of chapter "How we battled the Dharath’s birds by Nora, S-in-T" from (Recent Donor)Luna
these turquoise-coloured orbs had undoubtedly seen us from afar--- ooo, I love the color turqoise. And ya know, it just doesn’t get enough love in fic. Turq eyes = awesome :)

send me, my dog, Annie and Luna to deal with the whole damn mess.--- her dog? Heehee

Jabba the Hutt had liked Luke Skywalker in the episode VI, but-“--- yay! SW geekiness! ;)

Luna has a whirlwind?? Neeeeeato ;)

Considering that two of them were Slayers, and the third was a mistress of the east wind, plus they had a very alert and watchful dog with them, this was more of a feat than how it initially appeared.-------- heehee… An alert and watchful dog- indeed this was quite a feat!

Chimaera--- as in Anita Blake’s?

she looked askance--- kudos for using the word ‘askance’. I forgot about that word and must not reinsert it into my vocabularly ;)

nice descrip of the wyrm :)

Yay for skill with a crossbow!

Very cute :)

Review of chapter "How we battled the Dharath’s birds by Nora, S-in-T" from JediKnight
What is this crossover?
Comments from author:
It's not a crossover, though there are some connotations with Greek myths, if you squint slightly.

Review of chapter "The journal of Nora, the Slayer on duty on___" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Oh, more Nora!

A very silly fun little chapter :) Sounds sooo like a teenage girl is actually writing it and brings to life just what the world would be like after the activation of all the Potentials and day-to-day life.

Cool!! :D
