Review of chapter "Chapter One" from smolder
Review:
I had favorite-d this a while ago but it is only now in re-read (definitely not the first :) ) that I noticed I never review this lovely fic. I have so much love for this. Just the image in my head of John as Green Lantern cursing and beating the shit out of bad guys while Superman is at first horrified but eventually resigned just delights me for some reason. *laughs*

And your characterization of the whole McClane clan is so great as well - I just adore how you portray Holly (observant and knowing of the person he is and understanding of the mistakes they both made in their marriage so able to want the best for John). And all of that doesn't even touch on the somehow incredibly sweet relationship you form with Matt and him, the development of which feels very real and true to character.

Just grrr. Love this and wanted to let you know.

For as cracky as the premise was for this story, I worked damn hard to make the story seem realistic. Thank you so much for leaving such a thoughtful comment. It is much appreciated, and I'm sorry it took so long to reply.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Bugeyedmonster
Review:
I keep coming back and re reading this.

Oh, hey, did you ever hear about the two gay bashers who tried to bash two cross dressing cage fighters in Swansea? Google it. I had this wild image of Matt and John holding hands on a beach, and some gay bashers trying to bash them. Things would not end well for the bashers. lol. And then the bashers might have to worry about being threaten by a few JL members.

Anyway... going back to re-reading this. Love the image of Diana carefully repeating what John said.
Comments from author:
I get the feeling Matt would pull John away before he could out them as a superhero. Then they'd go back to the Watchtower, and John would cuss and yell and punch walls. This would lead to Wonder Woman becoming righteously indignant on their behalf, and going down to Earth for some ass kicking.

I'm glad you like this so much, it makes me happy to know that you enjoy it so much.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from amusewithaview
Review:
Mahahahahahaha!

I can SO see him making Superman blush! Would you ever do a sequel bringing in some Teen Titans or something else superhero-y? This world is a fun and a funny one and you should totally play in it some more.
Comments from author:
I can't figure out where I'd go with this. I don't know enough about DC verse to really get into it.

I was thinking about maybe, MAYBE, a scene of John as the Lantern, tearing the baddies apart.

I'll think on it, though I promise nothing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from IrnBruOrDeath
Review:
The concept of John McClane as a Green Lantern is sheer genius! So mad it might just work even!

My personal favourite bit was the comment on the blushing Superman *snert* only trumped by the shirtless John moment when he first meets the Flash. Lovely.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Superman is super, but he was raised on a farm in Kansas, so in some ways, he's not that worldly.

I started this as an odd crossover idea for the lady that got me into Die Hard fic, and she thought it was just great. So I went with it and ended up with something remarkably probable... for crossover fanfiction, anyways.

Anywhoo, I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for letitng me know.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MrHepburn
Review:
A most excellent piece of writing with very accurate characterisation, a nicely original idea in the sense of McLaine being recruited as a space-cop in place of his regular police career. The slash was treated as a normal relationship like any other, which exactly how it should be, and was eminently well-written.

Wonderful!
Comments from author:
Aw, thanks! I'm quite pleased that you liked my approach to the idea and my treatment of the relationship. Thanks so much for letting me know.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MistDragon
Review:
A bit odd but I do love John and Matt together. Thank you, MD.
Comments from author:
I don't know where the idea for John as the Green Lantern came from, but once I decided, things just flowed from there. I'm glad you liked it despite the fact that it was a bit odd.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from LFW
Review:
I really can see John as a Green Lantern. Great thought. Not sure about the slash; and thanks for mentioning the slash cause I really get annoyed after starting a fic and finding slash. Thanks
Comments from author:
After reading your review, I got this mental image of someone preparing to wax their legs or take a shot of tequila, screwing their courage in preparation.

Even though you didn't care for the slash, I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for letting me know.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from purrfus
Review:
I've seen the first 2 movies, and only recently become aware of the Die Hard fandom, so I can't really tell if its in character. And the comic cross is kinda strange.

But... its a really fun story to read, and I'd like to see more of them if you find the inspiration and time.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you enjoyed; that was the main intent of it, so I'm glad I accomplished it.

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from nomadbeth
Review:
Wow, that's a pairing and a setup I never thought I would see. But bravo! It works, and well. Also, he would make an excellent Green Lantern as well as make the pansy heroes blush a lot.
Comments from author:
Yeah, I think most readers will follow you as long as you give them a reason. I'm glad it worked and I really do appreciate your telling me that it worked.

And yeah, he'd make the boy scout blush. Not Batman, though. Batman would just glower and tell them to clean up after they have sex. Which would make Matt blush.

Again, thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from lamusicalady
Review:
SO AWESOME!

you got the Die hard characters spot on, and the idea of superman blushing made me snort my drink by accident.

hardcore, for serious.
Comments from author:
Thanks, I'm glad you liked the characterizations and the humor. I'm not big on the full-out angst. I like to make people smile, so I'm glad I could do that.

Thanks so much for letting me know that you liked this!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Chickalupe
Review:
Man, I think I love this! I would love to see more from this universe. I am highly intrigued by the Superhero AU! And the slash, of course. ;)
Comments from author:
Yeah, the slashings are always fun. I unfortunately have about 99 works in progress, so I'll need to finish some of those up first. But with me, you never know. *grins*

Thank you so much for letting me know that you liked this! I really appreciate this!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DoubleKross
Review:
PURE AWESOME!

I want more.

Fantastic characterization on the part of the little seen Mclane/Generro family. Would looove to see mor eof the relationship 'tween Matt and John. (And the relationship between John and the JLA :D )
Comments from author:
Yeah, your comment seeded some bunnies. I'm imagining the League finding out John and Matt are together. Like Superman starts wearing earplugs because he just doesn't want to hear anything, Wonder Woman is at first horrified, then curious, and J'ohnn is... well, J'ohnn.

I'm glad you thought the characterizations worked; I always want to get the characterizations right. Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)tammin
Review:
First let me say that I don't generally read slash; that being said I think that this was a decent story. I personally don't see John Mclane as gay, but you did a fair job with this story.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it even though it isn't what you'd prefer. I tend to get irritated when people write a straight character as suddenly gay without any explanation. I think most readers, like yourself, will suspend their disbelief as long as reasons are provided. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed this.
