Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from Grovtech
Review:
Many others have said how good a job you've done weaving these three or is it four universes together. And there are so many guest stars from other works I can't keep track. With that said, I really like the work you've done with the 'Lightning Warriors'. You've really have the banter and feel of them down.

Good stuff!
Grover

Review of chapter "Methuselah's Children" from DieselDriver
Review:
Interesting chapter. I'm glad you didn't break it up into shorter ones. I think "Methuselah's Children" was one of the first Heinlein books I ever read. My parents got it from the Sci Fi book club of the month some time back in the 60's. I love how Heinlein tied all those stories together into a coherent history. Fun to think about Lazarus's personal timeline extending to before the beginning of the main line and extending out past the end of it. Must have given ol' Hugo Pinaro something to think about if/when Woodrow Wilson Smith came in for a reading. In one of the stories about him, L.Long mentioned in passing that he'd known a man who could tell you when you were going to die. I would hope that RAH would be out there somewhere writing more stories for everyone there to enjoy, where ever "there" is. Perhaps Dora and her crew picked him up just in time and he's living happily with his children in the 30th century. The body was just a doppleganger there to fool the "audience". Hope they picked up Virginia too. I'd hate for Robert to be without his "Adorable Dora".

Hah! Loved your reply to Spaced Cadet.

I really enjoyed Larry Niven's portrayal of RAH and Virginia in "Footfall". Although it was only short it does show the way I like to think of him too. Also LN's "Return of William Proxmire" short. Hilarious and a fitting comeuppance to someone who richly deserved it.
Comments from author:
There will be a few more chapters in this, but too many ideas.

I'm quite fond of Heinlein's works. Which reminds me I need to buy a new copy of Time Enough for love, mine's completely falling apart.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from starwolf
Review:
very well done. lets face it Amanda needs a spanking every once in a while, even if its verbal from mom. Rack needs to die, and soon.
thanks
Comments from author:
Thank you. Yes, Amanda is a bit of a naughty girl, isn't she? Rebecca will be around to make sure she toes the line, at least some of the time. Rack is a very nasty piece of work. I'm quite proud of how I'm using him. ;-)


Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from Arekanderu
Review:
Dear god this was truly amazing. You have weaved these characters together so perfectly it takes my breath away. You are truly a master writer and I can't wait for the next chapter
Comments from author:
Thank you. I admit it takes some planning to get it all right and two dedicated betas and a lot of notes. ;-)

Many thanks for the compliments. Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from SpacedCadet
Review:
“It’s strangely balanced and rather too heavy for use,” Duncan supplied. “As if it was made for someone quite short but with prodigious strength"


Like a goblin blacksmith...or maybe a tall part-goblin blacksmith ?
Comments from author:
Nope, like a short, super strong girl...

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from Meneldur
Review:
Great chapter. I don't have much to say, simply because it was so good, but I loved the fight scenes, and that Darius and Nefertiri finally got together. Also, we see Hazel for the first time, and an interesting sword which might be what Buffy used?
It turns out Snape is more and more connected. And he knows the truth about his ancestor, and people who knew him. I can't wait to see how it'll all tie in, and the family's reaction when they all find out what's going on.
BTW, I've been wondering about the formal arrangement of the family - is there some kind of ranking or hierarchy, especially in the magical context? Are there separate positions and responsibilities for the Patriarch/Matriarch, their consort, Heir/ess, the Eldest member of the House, the most Powerful, and so forth? These things interest me.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Glad the fight scenes worked, I always feel they're stilted. I like Darius and Nefertiri, even though they never met and canon.

Yup, Snape is going to have more of an impact than he thought.

Yes, there are certain duties attached to the ranks and titles. I might even explore them in story, one day. Let me contemplate...

Thanks for reviewing

Review:
Great, great chapter!

Good fight scenes, good handling of Rack.

Thanks for a great story!
Comments from author:
Thank you. I'm always uncertain about my fight scenes, I feel they are not my best talent to write.

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from Senko
Review:
Hmmm missed chapter 3 which is a shame as it explains why Dawn's running around in Lonely Souls. So we have an ancient magical sword probably designed for a slayer, an ancient gemstone which may contain the soul of a wizard and a few new loose ends hmmmmm.
Comments from author:
Yes, I may have to reiterate that again. Quite a few loose endes, yes...

Review:
What makes me think that Adam Cain Abel Addams is going by the name Adam Pierson these days?
Comments from author:
Because he has a tendency to rub people's noses into how clever he really is?

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from harcroft
Review:
Hazel? I assume that is Willow's remaining triplet. Does this mean there is a chance of the triplets once more all having bodies? (even if Rowan stays in a robot body forever, though I kind of hope she gets an actual body at some point.)

overall, a very good chapter, from an excellent author. Though if Snape is still using Dark magic, i wonder how bad a Cleansing Ritual would have to be to remove the taint from his magic. If it would even work on a Focus User. ( and I assume at least one character in Lost Souls will become a True Wizard, I just wonder who)
Comments from author:
Yup, it is. The triplets are Willow Danielle, Rowan Davida and Hazel Dannah. Though their full names are given only once.

Thank you, some of your questions will be (partially) answered quite soon. Others not so soon...

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Memento Mori" from AllenPitt
Review:
And they found a sword apparently designed for the Slayer. Neat! Meanwhile I can't believe the bad luck poor Marigold is having. Surely things will take a turn for the better for them, soon? We're all rooting for them! Ok, maybe not.
Great story all around.
Comments from author:
Yup. Bad luck favours the ones who face the well-prepared. ;-) Uprooting, maybe...

Review of chapter "Methuselah's Children" from Zarbon
Review:
You can Keep the town of Vannes. Near of this town, there are St Anne d'Auray with a great pilgrim for Sainte Anne. There are also a Abbey of Saint Anne de Kernogan at Plouharnel (Morbihan) near Carnac.
Comments from author:
Yes, but Amanda is from St. Anne in Normandy (non-existent or not) and Rebecca was an abbess there. So it is now Mortain, or should be, I've only changed it twice... though they might have made a mistake with making it Normandy, not Brittany. Anyway, Mortain now.

Thanks for the info and the review.

Review of chapter "Methuselah's Children" from Zarbon
Review:
Good story.

BUT Vannes is in Britanny, not in Normandy. (See a map in France). It's a town of Morbihan.
Comments from author:
I quite agree. I could not find an Abbey of St. Anne of any age in Normandy, though there some streets named after her. I pencilled in Vannes because I was reading a book about poverty in the Ancien Regime which mentioned the town just when I needed to fill in a place. The name of the place I finally chose was Mortain, and I forgot to change it. IT should be correct now, but I've noticed that TtH occasionally has problems dealing with edits.

Thanks for pointing this out, and thanks for reading and reviewing

Review of chapter "Methuselah's Children" from (Past Donor)James
Review:
Loving this story. Really like the by-play between the various parties.

One confusing thing. I did realize that Luther had left/escaped while Rebbeca and Nefertiti was talking. I kept expecting him to pop-off and say, "Enough chatter! Finish me off! PLEASE JUST KILL ME NOW!!!!". Or something like that.

James
Comments from author:
Nope, he was smart enough to run. A greate deal of Highlander was flashback and byplay. I tried to get that into the story.
