Review of chapter "In for a Penny, in for a Pound" from Alerya
Review:
This one fun open end for a story. I can see Gadget constantly chasing Xander, most time - at the end of a date with Penny. Of course, they they will have to tell the truth before the wedding )))

This was a fun one shot to read. It was cute and fun like the show/movie with a BtVS twist to it. Keep up the entertaining writing.

Review of chapter "In for a Penny, in for a Pound" from MBB
Review:
A nice and complete story, it's a keeper.

I liked the way you had Xander use preparation (in stead of improvisation or overkill) to defeat Dracula and making it a shared victory. It fits the characters, their past and Buffy-world.

I was surprised to see Penny described as brown-haired as in the cartoons she was blond (technically,yellow).
But I read in the reviews there was a movie were she was a brunette?
Comments from author:
Yes... In the movie she was played by a brunette, Michelle Trachtenberg ironically enough...

Review of chapter "In for a Penny, in for a Pound" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I liked everything except for Xander having to out-run her uncle in the end, instead of using some kind of obfuscation. He still thinks that Xander is a murderer - dating his niece.
Comments from author:
Yeah, I was tempted to go that route, I'll admit. I wound out going this one because the idea of Gadget eternally chasing after his nieces boyfriend, thinking him to be a murderous MAD agent amused me... :p

Review of chapter "In for a Penny, in for a Pound" from missinglink
Review:
Nice quality ficlet. Doesn't need more to it as it feels well self contained. That said...

I see a room with a large chalkboard. Faith is in front of it giving odds of both progress of Xander's relationship with Penny, any of the Scoobs noticing her resemblence to Dawn, Dawn noticing the resemblence and wanting to stake her claim and lastly the sucker bet on when Gadget will catch Xander and bring him to justice (whatever that may be). Slayer betting frenzy ensues and Giles calls to remember to forward him his cut.

I would definately see Xander giving Penny a new puppy she trains as Brain 2.0 or Brian as an omage to Family Guy (even better if description is that of a puppy sized Brian). Also would see the eventual love triangle between the two Michelles and Xander played for laughs. There could be fun little ficlets to carry this on as moments in the future. Above all, Gadget can never figure out the supernatural. Even if it headbuts him in the face he will not make a connection (even better if he spontaneously comes up with an old Sunnydale PD response of gang members on PCP). Maybe even bonus points for Buffy liking Gadget and the... nope, even she has standards for intellengence. May not be high, but they are higher than that. Now Andrew developing a crush on the other hand and Gadget oblivious to it... there might be potential in that.

Anyway, fun story and appreciate the read. Keep em coming when you can and as always thanks for the diversion. Later.

I dunno about Buffy's intellectual standards. She dated Captain Cornbread after all... :p

Glad you enjoyed my piece of fic. Your concepts for expansion are quite entertaining... ;)

Review of chapter "In for a Penny, in for a Pound" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
This.. is typical of both the Inspector and of Xander's love life.

In the cartoon, half the time Gadget was chasing BRAIN thinking his latest disguise was a MAD hireling!

Too true

Review:
*Snicker* That was funny. Thank you for sharing ^^! I wonder how long it's gonna be before Gadget finds out about the real world? lol That ought to be fun.
Comments from author:
*laughs*

Gadget's pretty oblivious. I wouldn't count on him figuring it out quickly...

I laughed multiple times reading this. Great job. I want to see a Dawn meets Penny scene in the sequel.

Looks good. Coming up -

Penny is kidnapped because of her resemblance to Dawn (same actress).
Comments from author:
*sniggers*

Worse still. Buffy catches Xander doing the horizontal salsa with Penny and is killed because Buffy thinks its Dawn... :p

Review of chapter "In for a Penny, in for a Pound" from (Moderator)acs
Review:
So, this isn't the Penny who looked remarkably like Dawn?

Cute story. Too bad about Brain. He really was the brains of the operation.
Comments from author:
Officially, no. I couldn't think of a way to work in her look alike status without making it tacky.

I was sad about Brain too. Unfortunately I couldn't decide whether to go the cartoon or movie route. In the end, I decided to save myself the aggravation and go with the simple fact that dogs have shorter lifespans and it's been ten years since Penny was ten... :p
