Review of chapter "Oops, my bad...uh sorry?" from Selonianth
... Yea, I suppose nearly beating to death the FATHER of the slayer you're there to talk to would be a good reason to never do these things alone ever, ever, again.

Review of chapter "Oops, my bad...uh sorry?" from Grevane
Just a really fantastic oneshot, everybody in character (even nailed Montgomery!), good bit of humor thrown in, and Castle acts like the goof he is.
Bit of a line spacing issue, but easy enough to overlook. I think you cut it off at a good place too, no reason to stretch it out since we can all see where its going from here.

Review of chapter "Oops, my bad...uh sorry?" from Letomo
Now that I've actually gotten to see Castle, I really like this story! I keep hoping there will be a followup; something to show what else will happen- how Castle will react to news of the supernatural world. And, how the other Scoobies will react to him; or the other girls, like Kennedy and Vi, and Rona.
Keep up the good work!

Review of chapter "Oops, my bad...uh sorry?" from Jarvey
I came back to reread this after that... /interesting/ response fic appeared on the site. I have to say, I feel yours is more realistic, especially pertaining to the description of Xander's immediate reaction to seeing the face of someone that scared the crap out of him.
I also think that Castle's reaction actually fit pretty well, his false assurance of being fine, etc. The characterization and voicing fits well with the "I'm fine" *probes* "Ow!" scene I recall appearing in a past episode.
I'm not sure what that other author's response story was really getting at, considering that your story was going to fire him down to booking for assault anyways. I imagine Castle's fascination with the story would probably drop the charges though, and that seems to be less about "super-duper-everyone loves Xander" and more about "Castle loves a good story" than anything else ;)
Overall, I felt your story carried the voice of all of the characters well, and their actions felt reasonable and well-motivated from their source material.
Either way, I say not to take that response story personally. If you have the time (and maybe some popcorn), stop by the reviews page for the other story. Given the responses I see there, it seems more like the author just dislikes the characters... and the stories... and the readers...
Even genuinely constructive criticism (IE "Don't change the plot, just present slightly different by doing xxxx.) is shut down with argumentative repetition.
The arguments with the lawyers and law students are especially... interesting.
I hate to write anything like that about an author, especially on a medium like the Internet, where criticism is often followed by a comparison to 1930s dictatorial political parties, but I couldn't help it.
...Okay, this is why I shouldn't write reviews after midnight. I ramble.
Bizarre Internet discussions aside, keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "Oops, my bad...uh sorry?" from jormunguard
Good story, kind of an understandable reaction for Xander to have if he had just spotted Castle. Read this after reading Kate's bash fic that she wrote in response. After reading this I don't really understand where she was coming from at all.
But anyway good short story.
Comments from author:
I was reserving judgement on that fic, truth be told I really didn't like it, felt it totally missed the spirit of both shows and the core of both characters.
Glad to see I wasn't just being biased because it felt like an attack on my idea and fic.
Anyway, Thanks for the review:) Glad you enjoyed it.

Very nice - a sequel would be fun but might strain the joke. Still, you have Castle-patter down pat and it would be a shame not to see more :)

Review of chapter "Oops, my bad...uh sorry?" from MrPowell
Excellent story! I can totally see both Castle and Xander getting themselves into this type of situation.
Would be kinda interesting to see what happens next, but this was a well contained story in and of itself.
Thank you for a great read.
