Review of chapter "Chapter 12: Fallout: New Vegas" from Oakheart
Review:
Wonderful to have an update; I really enjoy this fusion of two of my
favorite fandoms! There's no-one so stubborn, as an old dog who knows
three tricks... Wonder how Ranma will react to someone getting a 'free'
power-up of HIS hard-won skills. Looking forward to more action and
angsty fun (Ryoga curing the Peruvian Mummy with his immense chi -
hilarious!); thanks again.

Review of chapter "Chapter 12: Fallout: New Vegas" from Difdi

> “Well, I’m going as an Eskimo"

Eskimo is actually a derogatory term, roughly equal to chink or nigger. Roughly translated, it means "subhumans too stupid to cook their fish so they eat it raw". It's what their tribal enemies called them, who lived to the south and were, therefore, contacted first by European explorers.

They call themselves Inuits.
Comments from author:
I apologize for how rambling this is going to be, as I was writing the review while researching both the terms and the episode.

I actually knew that. However, I'm fairly sure Eskimo was still the 'proper' term to use in 1997. Either way, it was the only term used in the episode to describe her outfit. I checked. This was not meant to be an insult, it was meant to preserve the integrity of the story.

And according to my searching, it is actually still officially in use in Alaska because 'Inuit' only includes most of the people and Eskimo includes all three distinct ethnic groups. Also, Eskimo does not seem to have come from "subhumans too stupid to cook their fish so they eat it raw," if anything similar it came from "Eats it raw," which was perfectly descriptive. That said, from what I've spent the last half hour looking up, it more likely came from a word meaning "snowshoe maker."

So, thank you for commenting and showing that a knee-jerk reaction to perceived racism can actually lead to learning something. It was very interesting.

If haiku is always so brief, why don't they call it 'underwear'?☺:

A modest proposal, at some point Council members must kill a Master vampire armed only with a stake.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Fallout 2." from FemXanderForever
Review:
Yeah, I can tell that the Council still screws up so many times, it isn't funny. What I want to know is why, with all his Ki ability, Ranma doesn't just blast them away, or at least make them scared. And he has the Umi and Yama-Sen-Ken, as that's before the time that Nodoka finds out about the Curse, and Ranma's pulled, just before she does find out, which means that Ranma has a lot of killing techniques, and has modified techniques to be non-lethal. Hell, he's got a Danger Sense, so bullets could likely trigger the DS, easily.

Also, Quentin Travers is an Ass, heavy on the capital A there. Ranma usually punches someone for being asses.

That alone kinda irks me, though I still laugh at the Council screwing up more than their fair share of things.

And that last thing, how is says that Ranma isn't a Slayer, does that mean that the ritual, like all things magical around Ranma, screwed up?

Anyway, hope you continue the story,

I want the cleanup crew to suffer the wrath of Ryouga!

It's just a simple thing, some nitwit talking about killing the accursed in his hearing....

Well written, but you did leave out the screw-up count.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9: Fallout 2." from Vilkath
Review:
Interesting stuff though I always felt Gile's reasoning was a bit flawed. If a slayer can't stand up to modern arms and the threat of assination always hangs over their head how would a normal human fair? Why doesn't anyone threaten the council in such ways? They just play at being soldier and have more skeletons in their closets than most countries, simply put if anyone stood up to them they would fold like a pack of cards. You can't even play the 'slayer card' given they provide next to no useful support as a whole and the Slayer would be almost as well off on their own as with training. Buffy is perhaps the bst slayer in the series and she had minimal training while Kendra the 'council raised' pawn got her but kicked so easily in what a year or less of fighting?

You also have to wonder if the council hadn't found a way to tailor the slayer dreams so they can't warn them of human threats as big as the council, the ritual thing they do on their 18th birthday etc. Frankly given it's been going on for centuries every new slayer should wake up with what killed some of the previous ones and teach them to be distrustful of the watchers. The fact none of them seem to catch on seems to point towards a bad dirrection.

Still I never bought the 'all powerful' council angle and they only have any control over Buffy and such in canon because the good guys are all soft hearted fools when it comes to human evil. I always got the impression Buffy would sleep with Hitler and try to reform him, just because he was human and thus not killable.
