Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from DieselDriver
Review:
Something is bound to happen in London. Big cities have more room for bad things.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from DieselDriver
Review:
Well, that explains a few things. Why the Aztec culture died out and why it was so powerful. Also explains why so many Spanish treasure ships sunk.

I think a good way to get rid if these guys forever would be to have a sub shoot each of the undersea cities with several Nuke tipped torpedoes. I'm sure the fish guys would get a big bang out of that.

BTW, I meant to mention this stupid movie I remember watching decades ago. Mutant fish came up on land and raped beach women and left them preggers. Ended with this poor girl in the delivery room sitting up and screaming as the baby was shown to her. Or something. Don't remember clearly except for the sitting up and screaming.
Comments from author:
Oh there's probably more Deep Ones somewhere else.

Odd film, I expect that whoever wrote had red some Lovecraft.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three." from DieselDriver
Review:
It bothers me a bit that Kennedy attacked without ascertaining that the Frog Creatures were actually intent on aggressive behavior given that her attack was first strike is it any wonder they tried to defend themselves? Yeah sure, they're probably demons but what if they were peaceful explorers who were ready to defend themselves from hungry predators should they be attacked? What if their first words were going to be "take me to your leader" rather than "Hungry, You look Yummy"?
Comments from author:
Actually this is explained in the next (or subsequent) chapter. Basically Kennie knew what they were.

The entire beach scene was based on a cartoon-like picture I once saw of two young women, one with dark hair the other with red, dressed in polka dot bikini's being menaced by what looked like a 'Deep One'.

Cheers,
D.

Review:
Heh! I know just barely enough about "Fawlty Towers" to not be surprised at how sign in went.
Comments from author:
And there was me thinking Fawlty Towers was universal!

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from markw
Review:
Anyone for rudeness?
You used the name Sea Devils and said it was a Doctor Who reference. Simple as that. Why are reviews even allowed if it comes to this?
Comments from author:
Did I? Well, it was an awful long time ago that I wrote this story so I probably forgot. If I sounded rude I'm sorry but in my defense you sounded pedantic! This is the problem with communicating without being able to see the other person's face, you can' tell if you're joking or not.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from markw
Review:
When you mention the Sea Devils kidnapping and crossbreeding with human women, you're describing the behaviour of H.P. Lovecraft's Deep Ones. In Doctor Who the Sea Devils were aquatic relatives of the Silurians.
Comments from author:
Anyone for pedantry?

I'll well aware of this as I know something of H P Lovecraft's works and watch the original Dr Who with the Sea Devils in as a boy.

All I'm suggesting here is the two could be misidentified by people who aren't experts...also who says that Sea Devils isn't the local name for Deep Ones? And maybe, just for a while there the Deep Ones had access to advanced weapons.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from naplam
Review:
Lovecraft's entities are not actually demons. And if those are Sea Devils from Doctor Who-well, they certainly don't do THAT!
Comments from author:
Its just a simple case of misidentification. People see what they expect to see, if you expect to see demons that's what you'll see!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from (Current Donor)MaxGSandeman
Review:
What happens to the permanent guests, staff and Russian hamsters?
At least Willow could have paid by erecting the fence.

Cheers.
Comments from author:
Not much point with the hotel being a smoking ruin now!

I expect everyone will find somewhere else to stay/work. there's plenty of hotels in Torquay.

Cheers,
dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Kennedy being a gangster girl (and named after RFK.. which fits so nastily and correctly into the Buffyverse), Fawlty Towers (on the evil anagrams); you, sir, are clearly deranged.

I love it. I do advise you keep writing to avoid having it wreck other aspects of your life.

Thank you.
Comments from author:
Thank-you, your review made me chuckle.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from CPTSkip
Review:
I liked your story. But for some reason, when I read “Daddy bought a penthouse apartment in Chelsea,” Kennedy announced nonchalantly, “he wants us to check it out.” I suddenly had a very bad feeling. Lol!
Comments from author:
I think your entitled to as many bad feelings as you like! Kennedy's little 'jobs' for her Daddy usually end up with some one dead!

Cheers,
Dave.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from MarcusRowland
Review:
"Leaving the dust and smouldering ruins of Torquay in her rear-view mirror"

You are J.G. Ballard and I claim my five pounds!

Nice ending, looking forward to their next escapade.
Comments from author:
I'm going to have to check that reference before I hand out anything.

The next thrilling installment of the Grim up North starts soon!

Cheers,
Dave.

Just looked up J D Ballard, I thought the name sounded familiar, but I can't say I've read any of his works.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from Ltlconf
Review:
Howdy Dave!

Heh! I say Kenn and Wils throw Fawlty to the thing and run for their room to properly arm themselves. Considering Fawlty, it'll take some time to chew the stringy bastard, outa by Kenn and Willow about an hour....
Comments from author:
Nice thought, but I think even Fawlty gets covered by the 'we done kill humans' rule...well maybe...there could be some wriggle room here!

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from CPTSkip
Review:
Ewww! I actually hope it is Quetzalcoatl just because I've always liked the name 'Quetzalcoatl' and it sounds better than 'Hunting Horror'. Lol! Nice cliffy, I hope there will be a quick update.

I know what they can do! Willow and Kennedy need to strip naked, wipe off the blood and feed Fawlty, Sybil, and What's-her-name to the nasty bugger! Although the thought of Fawlty naked makes my mind's eye all red and puffy.

Edit: OK, I didn't like Sybil so much as I disliked her less than most of the rest. I'd didn't think there were many likable people on FT.
Comments from author:
Polly?

Everyone wants to feed Basil to the Hunting Horror! And yes I like the word Quetzacoatl too. Its the sort of word you can really get your teeth into!

Cheers,
Dave.
