Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from Lokilos
This was good, very good. I just got finished watching Batman Year One and this had the same gritty feel to it. Good work.
Comments from author:
The comic Batman Year One was the inspiration for this story. I really tried to capture the darker aspects of it while still having some fun.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from JTM
Of this I smell the awesome, deep, deep, awesome.

Now all we need for your next story is Harry raised by Doctor Doom, Harry as a Herald of Galactus, Harry as Etrigan/Jason Blood, Harry as Hawkman(nth metal, nuff said), Lily as the Specter, Sirius as Deadman, or Dobby as the Hulk(are you gonna try to tell me he doesn't have enough repressed rage for it).
Comments from author:
I don't know if I could manage the Herald of Galactus, but maybe.

I did toy with having a James Potter/Etrigan thing going on, but decided against it in favor of another set up for the sequel to this one.

Sirius as Deadman could work, but I've got other plans for him.

Dobby as the hulk would really work. So does Harry Hulk, as I wrote in my false starts.

Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm working on the sequel, so it shouldn't be too long.

Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from ForSpite
Ah, I remembered some of the rest of my review: Namely, the super-villain set ups you did were legitimately entertaining in and of themselves and that I'm getting over an illness and just might not be in the mood to fully appreciate the humor portions.
Comments from author:
I'm glad to hear that. Heal up and be well.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from ForSpite
I just lost an extremely long review of this entire story by clicking on the wrong thing. So, let's sum this up:
As a parody of Frank Miller this has some good funny bits but parodies are hard and a lot of the time I'm in an awkward zone where what I'm reading is too hammy to be easily digested but not so hammy as to be really amusing. I ended up finding this story basically middling, good enough I ended up reading the whole thing and only stooping to skimming occasionally but not something I'm going to go around recommending. I think you're partly handicapped by having to write everything out in Miller's style. Even HE doesn't do that, he can use pictures. You have to actually convey what's going on without seriously breaking character and that may be a little too much.
Humor is pretty subjective, though, and you can't please everyone, I just may not be in the target audience here. I'm pretty sure I had some examples of particularly amusing over the top lines that had to have been written tongue in cheek, they sounded like punch-lines from Calvin and Hobbes. "Bats don't swim" was one.
I did like most of the omakes, though.
Comments from author:
Some of these weren't meant to be jokes. I tried really hard to keep the jokes out of the story proper, but some did slip in. "Bat's don't swim" wasn't meant to be a joke, but an illustration of how out of touch with the new reality Lucy had become. He wasn't able to adapt to the rapid changes brought about by the Batman's presence.

I did feel cramped by FM's style at times. And yes, while he does use the art and text fusion, I tried to go a slightly different direction. I think I'd change things if I were to do a sequel and branch out a bit more.

And in defense of Calvin and Hobbes, they're two of the most complex characters out there, especially for a strip.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from SnowyMountain
While crossovers aren't anything new, I think you came up with a version that's pretty neat. Far too often, authors contrive ways to mix two series, usually by having the two main characters encounter one another. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I really liked how you merged the two series; I honestly never thought of Neville Longbottom in the role of the Joker or Hermione Granger as Catwoman. It's a fun read and interesting twist.

I hope that you think about adding a sequel to this series, I think it has definite potential.
Comments from author:
This is a bit of a lesser used version of the crossover, but both can be pretty fun at times.

Hermione as Catwoman was an easy match, pretty much because she had Crookshanks as a familiar. Neville just kinda slipped in under the radar, but fit so well. The Joker never could be an established villain in my opinion because the story of the joker is one of a normal guy getting the shit end of the stick.

I am considering a sequel, probably something that resembles the Long Halloween, at least in theme, if not plot, as Two Face is already out and about.

I'm still pondering who should be Scarecrow, the Riddler, Poison Ivy and a few other characters. I'm considering having the Elder Carrow act as sort of the Roman. Well, we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from FariaLyton
Fudge could become that arctic fowl,
an ineffective villain on the prowl.

While I highly doubt you'll write more,
I still must beg "Encore! Encore!"
Comments from author:
You're not the first to make such a request,
Indeed, I see this fic as a type of test,
For me to see
If this shall be,
The start or the end for me.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CrystalBlaze
(All in iambic pentameter, blank verse)

Thy wit and brav-ado know no compare
in terms of staggered foe and friend alike.
Though rhyme be spare and far to dear for here,
Sooth, spite me not, for pacing may be found.

The moon-calves plaguing wizard world are sheep,
yet entertaining when they fall in droves.
I find your prose regarding them full fun
so keep your nose, for face needs none of spite.

The verse is blank, I know it well, so there.
Yet poet be if poetry is true.
And Miller did for good cause do his worst,
which I list now to due give to Old Nick.

The Dark Knight did return and pass beyond,
And ending to the Gotham legend grand,
Yet, like unto Jerusalem in tale,
The writers of DC did his ear bend,

With tales of contracts, obligating work,
to force a sequel to sothing fully told,
So crap on it he did, an act so brash,
That none believed it, thus they harped again.

They disregarded work and tale alike,
So Miller did and fucked it even worse.
A curse me made of Batman and his name,
so none would force them e'er together more.

The tale is done, review and all complete.
Your homage to it all fit in and well.
And yet I keep the verse blank as I must,
else where DC should go I'd say. So long!
Comments from author:
Wow. That's some impressive reviewing.

And I agree, but simply, thanks!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Hot damn! I have no words,
Except to perhaps encourage
A sequel to this tale;
It'd be more exciting than a shoe sale!

Freaking awesome story. Different from your crack fic but OH SO satisfying. I *loved* it!!!!!
Comments from author:
It's been fun, but the fic is done.
'Til the last, 'twas a blast.
For attending my story's ending,
My thanks to thee, I say, prithee,
Come once more some other morn,
And I shall show, How far the Rabbit hole go.

There, that's my bad poetry response, thanks!

Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Holy Cow!
Neville as the Joker? Wow.

Also, I LOVED the Sirius-Grim moment. Excellent idea. Sadly, I could not think of anything that rhymed with Sirius or Grim…damn.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Neville as the Joker. I needed someone who would fall into madness, rather than already be an evil shit, so Death Eaters were out.

I do kinda wish I had been able to do something with Sirius. Well, there are always sequels.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from (Recent Donor)Luna
“Well, it flies at least,” she said as she stepped out of sight. ----hahaha love this!

Whew! So glad you didn’t kill Snape!
I’m pleased Batman allowed his escape.
Umbridge deserved more than she got
And HP is either crazy or smoking some good pot!

;) Happy Rhyming Review Day!
Comments from author:
Thanks, but Umbridge just wouldn't work as a character for a bigger scene as she was already being put down. And public embarassment is always a powerful deterrent.

Thanks for reading and thanks for the Rhyming!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from Chikageko
Aww, why'd you end it mr. Squirl? That was bloody hilarious...
Comments from author:
Alas, all things must come to an end, and this too must end. Be it that you find such humorous to be quite bodacious, This with all things, there is a place and a time, a time which is now past, though the place shall never change.

I thank thee mightily for thy reading!

Review of chapter "Final Chapter" from Dave
You have been busy.
Quite enjoyable but almost was hoping for a bit longer length, still I quite enjoy all your stories
Comments from author:
Well, this was originally going to be a one shot, but it ended up around 50 pages, so I figured I'd best break it up a bit. I'm glad you liked it, even if you wanted a bit more.

Thanks for reading!
