Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from Harry
Review:
NOW THIS, is one way to take out the trash without having to make Cordy look like a tramp! Well done!!!
Comments from author:
Well, she still had to dress up that way, but the launcher was only as a back up measure this time.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I love that you finished with a comment about how extremely dangerous it would be (for the person firing it and everyone else within several hundred feet) to use a rocket launcher inside a public space. I hadn't even thought about that until Cordyfan's "Someone Else's Mess" (I think it was) had soldier Cordy mention how very lucky they'd been when using that weapon against the Judge.
Comments from author:
I can't remember who pointed that out to me, but I thought I should stick it into a story some time.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from clarityfades
Review:
Hee! I like using one tv show to solve a major problem on a different tv show! LOL & MythBusters is the perfect show! Glad Buffy still got her rocket launcher as a present. :D
Comments from author:
Don't you think it'd be cool to see them do an episode of different myths on BtVS? Wonder if it'd get past the mods if I wrote them as existing in the same 'verse as Buffy.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from Gideon
Review:
Much safer than a rocket launcher, and nerdier too! Safety first!
Comments from author:
And nerdier is always better!

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from Odin
Review:
This is a great story. As a former Army officer I always had problems with using a "rocket launcher" indoors. Besides, really it looked more like a Stinger or Redeye missile, which are anti-aircraft weapons and not really suited for firing at ground targets since they both lock onto heat signatures. Keep up the great work.
Comments from author:
That was part of the reason I wanted Buffy to use something else to destroy the Judge. I read on a forum somewhere that the rocket launcher would be a very bad choice indoors. Plus the idea of using thermite was too fun to pass up.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from Harry
Review:
Now this, THIS story has possiblities for a new and interesting way to take out the Judge, and maybe Angelus as well.
Comments from author:
Doesn't it just make you wonder?

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from SpinelessPunster
Review:
Classicly good funny! Only thing missing is some MB quoting.
Loved the Age of the Geek line. Leverage's Hardison would've fought Oz tooth and nail (and lost) for a shot at the Willow in highschool.

Good entry.
Comments from author:
Hmm, I'll have to remember that if I ever do another Mythbuster story. I think it would have done Willow's ego wonders to have Oz and Hardison fight over her.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from CPTSkip
Review:
That was a very cool episode. As was your story. Lol!
Comments from author:
I loved that episode - although, the Mythbusters are synonymous with explosions, so for them...blowing something up is cooler than melting it. Still, *way* cool to watch the SUV burn.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from (Past Donor)exiled
Review:
Wonderful! I wish they could have sent in a vid of the melting Judge! What would their reactions be

Nice story!
Comments from author:
Wouldn't that be a hoot to watch?

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from burmafrdnow
Review:
Recoil is not a problem with rocket launchers- what is is the back blast. If you remember in Rambo First blood Part 2 he fires a LAW (Light Anti Tank Weapon) in the cockpit of a helicopter; that would have fried eveyone in the rear of the chopper. In one of the Dirty Harry movies where Tyne Daly played his partner they were showing her looking in the rear of one just before it fires; Harry pulls her out of the way and the backblast burns up the hillside behind them.

The whole Angelus/Angel thing about a moment of perfect happiness was a typical wild idea of Joss's that was not well thought out. Yes the Gypsy clan wanted revenge; but putting that happiness clause in was just plain stupid. If the idea was to punish Angelus you do NOT want it reappearing and killing again.

Shame you did not have pictures of Cordellia in trashy ensemble; now that would be fun to see!
Comments from author:
Yeah, I changed Buffy's comment about recoil. I didn't think she'd know about backblasts since it isn't as well-known in popular culture as recoil, so I left the concern vague.

Don't get me started on the curse or the loophole; it's one of my biggest pet peeves of the show.

I'm not good at creating fanart, so I have to rely on pictures or help from the wonderful creators of fanart to give me the visuals I need.

EDIT: Quite honestly, from what I remember of the outfit she wore, it wasn't really all that trashy or sluttish - at least compared to some other outfits on the show.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from JoeB
Review:
Xander: Uh Buffy, Rocket Launchers don't really have recoil...

Nicely done.

Well thought out, and I always love stories that point out that modern man is a much more difficult proposition to take on than our pre-industrial fore-bearers.
Comments from author:
Sorry, the recoil comment was supposed to be a place-marker for me until I found the problem that Buffy was *supposed* to have with firing a rocket launcher indoors. I remembered seeing a forum about it somewhere but couldn't remember the exact problem.

Since I doubt that she would have been savvy enough to know about missing backblasts, I changed her comment to be a bit more vague.

Review of chapter "End Without a Bang" from burmafrdnow
Review:
Well this is really AU now since Angelus and Dru are gone. Which means Jenny and Kendra live.
Comments from author:
Not that I'm particularly happy with Jenny at this point in time, it's nice to save people from death. Plus, don't you just love the idea of Giles going all Ripper on Angelus?
