Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Review:
This was actually quite awesome. Barbie as a real person with issues... Yeah, I liked it. Poor Dawn, but I bet Barbie would kind of grow on ya.

Review:
Nice.

I love the implication that GI Joe was, er, filling Ken's role for him.

Review:
I think it fits the spirit of the challenge fairly well! I love this, I love the denial, I love that Ken can't get it up around her!

Thank you very muchly!

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from EllandrahSylver
Review:
Hilarious... and terrifying. Poor Dawn! Can you imagine Barbie meeting Buffy, though? Somehow, I think even Barbie's own special brand of denial wouldn't survive an encounter with the Slayer, especially if Buffy was PMSing at the time. *evil grin*

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from DesitaniaF
Review:
oh god....i used to have a big collection of barbie stuff. I had a Theresa doll that was my favorite though. I had three male dolls and 12 female dolls. Usually the male dolls ended up being captured by the female society and held captive for breeding purposes....and then i turned my Theresa into Catwoman by taking a pen to her and drawing on stripes... sigh...
Comments from author:
I had a rubbermaid tub full of barbies as a kid. As the youngest of three girls (and of five female cousins at the time), I got all the hand-me-downs, which meant half of them came to me naked and broken. We had three 'kens', a Kevin (skipper's boyfriend) and Todd. Only about six or seven of them came to me brand new in the box (Kevin, my two skippers, stacie & todd in a intro pack, a mermaid barbie with baby krissy, Olympic Barbie that had the flexi-arms, and I think a rockstar Teresa). I had a knock-off Ken that was my favorite until my sisters got in a fight and broke his leg off. I'd only had him for a month, and you just can't fix broken limbs on barbie dolls.
I also had the bad habit of chewing off toes and fingers of my dolls, so the ones that already had broken necks (brush her hair too hard and you pop the ball-joint and then have to smoosh the head onto the neck) soon had nubbs for feet and hands. The stacie's had issues too. One's skin bubbled on her leg and I of course, picked at it until the plastic pulled away in strips. I then colored it in with red marker that turned black over the years and now looks like a zombie bite...It's the only 'barbie' doll I still have, as I gave the rest to my little nieces who then destroyed them even more.

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from djhardim
Review:
Actually, there was a toy company called Topper that put out a Dawn doll in 1970-1973.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawn_doll

Something out of the Twilight Zone - Dawn and everyone else on Buffy are actually dolls belonging to a little girl named Marti. She has an older brother named Joss.

At the end of season 7, we hear an older woman call in Marti for dinner.
Comments from author:
I think I had a fake-Ken by Topper (actually, I know I did - it was in a blue box. He came with a shower and was smaller than my Skipper doll, which is why I always made him Stacie's boyfriend. Mine were all hand-me downs from the mid '70's & early 80's)

That reminds me a bit of the St. Elsewhere series finally (where you find out all the happenings in the hospital were really in the mind of the little autistic boy who was looking at a snowglobe).

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from Bluejello
Review:
Oh, good god. If that had been my roommate, I suspect I'd have been up on homicide charges in short order.
Comments from author:
You know, compared to the roommates I actually got in college, I probably wouldn't have minded a perky Barbie type. It beats having a roomate who gets the campus police pounding at your door at three in the morning; one who has sex while you're in the room (and in the bunkbed below you), and the religious ballerina. Or the 400lb nudist my sister got as her roommate.

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from WolfWriter
Review:
As Giles would say, "Oh dear Lord!"

I always did think that Barbie was waaaaayyy to peppy to be real. Now I know it for a fact.
Comments from author:
Yep. I do think Mattel's mellowed her out a bit in the last two decades, which is not saying much. It's all the pink. You have to be peppy if you're embalmed in all that pink.

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from FaithWinchester
Review:
ROFLMAO! I love it, it's hilarious. I'd almost like to see more of this world. Then again, I have little girls and I am forced to watch the Barbie cartoons on a daily basis. Sadness is knowing all the words to the songs in those movies. Anyway, this was well done, good job!
Comments from author:
Oh, do not tempt me. It was far too easy to reach in my back pocket and whip this out.
I am so glad my nieces are all teenagers and that I was saved from the Barbie movie explosion of the last few years (all though, I'm the kid who walks around the toy section and presses all the singing buttons on the barbies and disney dolls). Unfortunately, that means I was stuck in the Barney era with the kids - and I can never, ever get 'Sally the Camel' and 'I Love You' out of my head. But then again, my oldest niece also watched Pet Cemetary at the age of 5, so I was stuck with that as well. *shudder*

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from CPTSkip
Review:
Lol! Your story is very ... cute and perky. And very amusing. So, GI Joe had a couple of kids with Barbie? We don't see enough Kit in fanfic stories, I wouldn't mind reading another story with these characters. If and when you get the inspiration, of course. Poor Dawn, she is going to be perkied to death. But you made me laugh, well done.
Comments from author:
Thank you!
As for baby-daddy, I honestly could not think of who could have fathered Kelly and Krissy - but I knew it sure as hell wasn't Ken. That man has too much fashion pizzazz. And as the infamous SNL skit says - it could be from the three-way Barbie had with a couple of Hobbit action figures ("But they're not even our size! What kind of slut are you?")

Kit is my go-to girl in a lot of my fics. I can relate to her, Dawn and Vi a little too well. I might have to do a second piece in this world, as I have so very many opions on Barbie's world.

Review of chapter "C'mon Barbie, Let's Go Party" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Bet even Harmony will feel smart around Barbie. That actually would be pretty hilarious to see. I can just picture Harm rolling her eyes at the utter stupidity Barbie shows. Wonder if her blood would taste fake too.
Comments from author:
Oh, the possiblites. It's the blonde factor - I think they're both playing up the dumb blonde stereotype to be honest. (Hey, you can't be an astronaught/computer engineer/teacher/racecar driver/chef/vet/kid doctor/dog-walker/supermodel without a little bit of know-how) But the denial Barbie's living in would make even Harmony smack her around. Oh, there is a fic in there somewhere.

Review:
I presume Barbie won't be a math major.
Comments from author:
Not that I've seen. . .and I'm thinking that her stint at NASA was just as a gopher for all the scientists.
Poor deluded plastic girl, not knowing Ken's into the other boys.

The most frigtening part is that there are Schoolteacher Barbie and 'Kid Doctor' Barbie (and that is actually the name on the box, no joke).
