Review of chapter "A Call to Arms" from dialNforNinja
Review:
I have to say, I seriously hate movieverse/earth-1616 Fury, and these kind of strongarm tactics are why. Additionally, it's just plain foolish to recruit for an elite force that way, when you're intentionally looking for people with abilities that make them worth dozens or hundreds of normal agents making yourself into an enemy is more from the Stupid Evil playbook than a dedicated, experienced intelligence service operative's.

Review of chapter "A Body of Truth and Lies" from dialNforNinja
Review:
Hillary and Bryce - and perhaps the happy bouncy time bungie excercise routine - were the only good things from that movie, I'd say. The reveal was good, actually, showing that they've got some good smarts despite limited info, and not drawing the misunderstanding out for manufactured angst or, worse, alledged 'humour.'

Review of chapter "A Call to Arms" from named
Review:
Lol, I loved the pirate xander, especially the final line, polly. I believe that u should post that as a oneshot at the very least. Possible an intro as to how the bet got started, but have that after the chapter that u already have so it doesn't give anything away.

The hawkeye story was very well put together, very well written and interesting. I do hope that u continue it. It would be interesting seeing his time going through the military training.

This would make an amazing story. I have never seen a Hawkeye Xander.

Review of chapter "A Call to Arms" from Martin
Review:
I would love to see a short story where Nick Fury pulls his usual blackmail, then later Xander comes back to blow him up. A lot of people don't take threats reasonably, and even more people find a dead threat an empty threat.

Review of chapter "A Call to Arms" from Klimmatt
Review:
This chapter... wow. This would be an awesome story, wait, scratch that, this is an awesome story that could easily stand by itself, and I deeply wish that you find the inspiration or whatever to continue it.

Review of chapter "Lucy in the Sky, ch 2" from trongod
Review:
Very nice; Faith's take on the whole Xander/Xavin & Karoline... well, can't really call it a trio, I suppose, but...

Back to Faith - her drugs comment followed by her cracking up and having to be called on her teasing was excellent; I could see her doing that easily. And I can also see her trying to get into the act sometime in the future, whether as Xander or as Xavin being the impetus being the question...

The so-called test for Buffy was well done; it showed Ripper's sneakiness and willingness to do what he could to protect his Slayer without arousing the Watchers and forcing them to do something drastic about him for it. Do wonder what Xander has in mind for the "spare" IDs, though....

Great work, once again!

Review of chapter "A Body of Truth and Lies" from trongod
Review:
Was nice to see the new chapter, but... odd... as it went from a happy go lucky, multi-bar extravaganza setting up a neat little Swash Bucklers Competition to Lara Croft...

Ya know, if the S.B.C. went on as scheduled, but had some... minor... disturbances due to a certain Tomb Raider being chased by competitors through it and meeting Xander very briefly, then them crossing paths per the chapter...

Saw your answer, so here goes: S.B.C. is the Swash Bucklers Competition, which was being set up for the next week in the part prior to Lara and Xander being together however long it was, later in the story. All in all, I liked the chapter; it was light hearted, and showed off something of Fun Loving Xander in his newer Bad Arse Xander body in the bar and with the ladies there.

As for the second part, I was trying to nudge your Muses into continuing this, to be honest, by asking for more about the competition and that Lara briefly crash it - literally - as it is going on...

See? Simple, really... That or The Voices In My Head weren't paying attention as I type the first time...
Comments from author:
I freely say that I didn't understand most of that review. I'm not sure if it was positive, negative, or merely pointing out to me the stuff that I had written.

As for the second bit? That lost me entirely. I've no idea was SBC is or how it could relate to Lara or Xander. I said in the note on that fic that I only ever saw the movie once, years ago, and never even played any of the games.

~EDIT~

Ah! Thank you for clearing that, I had bee immensely confused about that. When I had written them they were two separate events to me, different timelines. But I can certainly see how they could be merged. I might do that, but not yet.

Next thing should be something new, from my adoring fans. Just think of something fun. Xander as/with/running from... whatever: animal, vegetable, mineral, verb.

You want the Necronomicon to land on his lap? You want him to turn into a carebear? (Ok, I'll take that idea, wrap it in chains, tie it to a boulder, and drop it into Mt. Doom. But I'll think about it first.)

Review of chapter "A Body of Truth and Lies" from deamon
Review:
nice i would one day love to see an actual story with a xander/lara pairing. The closest i found was six foot deep on ff.net and they way thats going i am not sure its going to stay xander/lara
Comments from author:
The idea for this story came about when I was thinking about Xander and a lady love laying back and comparing scars after a night of enjoyment. It took me a surprising amount of time to think of a woman who was like him (Unpowered) who might have scars from a dangerous lifestyle. But when I thought of Lara it just seemed to fit. I'm surprised that no one has really gotten into this pairing before. Or at least recently. I'll think about turning it into a full story later, but right now, I'm just happy with how this turned out.

Review of chapter "Pirate's Night Out" from trongod
Review:
I'm thinking every one of these are worthy of expansion... although I really enjoyed 'Ooze that Binds' and 'Pirates Night Out' to the point of freaking out my family...

May the Muses stroke your brow lovingly about these!!
Comments from author:
I've got some ideas for further oneshots for Ooze, not really sure where to take Pirates though. I mean it was pointless fun there really. If you've got an idea though, let me know, I'll think about it. I doubt I can make it into a full story but I'll consider writing another oneshot for it.

Review of chapter "Lucy in the Sky with Diamons" from semkirk
Review:
Not too bad. But Please, No SG-1! Seems every other story posted here pulls them in. You've got a solid start here, run with the fandoms you have. Adding more would dilute things (my $0.02).
