Review of chapter "Willow Visits the Circus" from Shieldage
Ooh. Congratulations on the Recc for the fic. Nice little scene.
Thanks for taking my advice. Ooh, nice use of Google Docs' ability to add a color scheme so adjustments stand out - not something that had occurred to me, and I'll use it in the future. Good working with ya. Definitely cool :)
I like how you gave Bruce some background moments with Dick. Makes their future a lot more probable :)
Ooh, Bruce signed the picture of the Graysons surrounding him and Willow. Did the Graysons get their own copy signed by Bruce as well? Heh, it'd be nice if Dick had a copy signed by both Bruce and /Willow/ - but that's slightly unlikely ;)

There are all-beef kosher dogs, but those are seldom used at public events.
I have to admit, I feared the Joker or such would be involved, but this was a less cliche cross, and very well done.

Review of chapter "Willow Visits the Circus" from BluLadyK
I really really like how this turned out! The opening was much better than your initial 48 hours of no sleep opening. :)
You have set a fantastic brick work for any future stories. Imagine post "Chosen" Willow stopping in to see her favorite billionaire? Bringing her best friend to meet his childhood idol? Ohhh the possibilities!

Review of chapter "Willow Visits the Circus" from Angelfirenze
I liked this. I have to say, I'm curious what would have happened if Bruce had taken Willow in as his ward the same as he would later take in Dick, Tim, and the others. Wow, that would have been...astonishing to say the least.
Anyway, I would have loved to see Bruce really scare the crap out of the Rosenbergs and use the Bats persona to show them just how terrible they really were to their daughter. Just the thought is tempting to imagine.

Very sweet. I love that Willow got to meet the future Robin alongside the current Batman. Alfred was well characterized with his own brand of delightful subtlety. This is a universe that could easily be explored deeper in the future.

Review of chapter "Willow Visits the Circus" from SongBirdie
This is a really cool idea, I'd love to see more.
I'm really glad you had Bruce give the Rosenberg's the dressing down they so sorely need. Fanfic talks about Xander's father's probable abuse a lot, and almost every Buffy story addresses the mistakes Joyce made, but very few go into the repercussions that the Rosenberg's neglect caused Willow. And they caused a lot, her eagerness to learn, her need to be the best, her habit of being controlling of her friends, her abuse of magic, are all signs she never had any support growing up, and that she was desperate for attention.
Why did no one notice that Willow just about lived alone in cannon? Why didn't Giles, Jenny, or Joyce do something about it? It's illegal to leave a minor alone the lengths of time the Rosenberg's did.
I'm a little confused on how the Flying Graysons are alive, though. Is this A.U. in which they never died, or one of their shows in Gotham before they were murdered?
There are other stories with Willow seeing the Flying Graysons? Do you know the links?
Good job. This is original, well thought out, and something I'm glad to see. You might want to change "quite" to "quiet" and "there" to "their", but it's clear what you meant.

An interesting idea, and you went in a different direction than other stories that have Willow seeing the Flying Graysons. Two words -- quite (Willow's behavior) instead of quiet and their instead of their (pertaining possessively to the Rosenbergs).
I'd like to read some follow-up and Au-ey goodness from this. Even though Willow is 12, she could be starting high school with 13 or 14 year old Jesse and Xander (and it would also help explain why she cried about the yellow crayon).

It would be awesome if you could do a follow up story to this that takes place after Chosen.

Review of chapter "Willow Visits the Circus" from RivanWarrioress
Wow, that was a great story, and the only thing i want to pick up on was a wish that it was longer, which, seeing as it's part of a drabble per day thing, is understandable that it wasn't longer.
You made a really great start, and if you were to continue on with it (one where maybe Bruce comes to Sunnydale and sees that Willow's parents are still ditching her, so he takes her in...or something) i would love to read it.
You've done a great job stayinng in character, and i found it to be sweet, and at the smae time sad. Poor Willow. She deserves someone like Bruce watching out for her.
