Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
A pity she isn't a redhead... I do love this series.
Comments from author:
I'm considering hooking him up with Barbara Gordon (former Batgirl, now Oracle) but this would have to fast forward the timeline to add The Joker etc.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
I bet that wasn't what she was expecting when she decided to come visit! A bit of down time might do her good though.
Comments from author:
Gibbs knows the calming value of mind-numbingly boring work. No doubt he'll have some other suggestions to make next time.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RevDorothyL
Review:
No power tools, no super powers -- makes sense to me!

Nice work with Gibbs offering some very effective advice, in the face of Supergirl's grief and frustration over the ones they were too late to save.

Also, that almost-throwaway comment from Gibbs, about what would it do to the human race if Superman and Supergirl COULD save everybody, prevent every needless death, rescue everyone who got into a tight spot -- that brought back fond memories of a bit in Elliott S! Maggin's SUPERMAN: LAST SON OF KRYPTON (at least, I think it was), in which Lois Lane was interviewing an author whose book argued that Superman playing 'daddy' to the entire human race wasn't healthy for long-term human growth and maturity.
Comments from author:
It's pretty much the usual argument for free will - people have to be free to make mistakes, or they don't learn better.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from orangemike
Review:
Sandpaper sympathy; that's the kind to expect from Gibbs, all right. Rough, but when skillfully applied removes the superfluous and the unnecessary, allowing the underlying character to shine through.
Comments from author:
Sounds about right. Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Mcspender
Review:
Wood, I love the metaphor that represents working with it.
Clark is a farmer boy, and I bet he knows how to deal with grief working the land; Kara is a city girl, and learning woodcraft can be really good for her.
Cool chapter, see ya =).
