Review of chapter "The Reception Deception Dilemma" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
*When she had the tea brewed, Lorraine showed her where she had some real cream hidden in the fridge, and some turbinado sugar hidden in a cupboard. Apparently, Slayers went through food like starving frat boys.

Lorraine took a sip and sighed with pleasure. “Penny, you’re a life saver. I would like a cup of tea each morning, and again around three each afternoon. I’ll supply the sugar, the cream, and the tea, and you’ll need to hide each of them again when you’re done. And thank your friend Raj for me.”*

Lorraine can't be a real Brit. No-one English has *ever* put cream in tea except as a measure of sheer desperation if trapped in some foreign hotel with no milk available. This is a mistake Americans often make; I believe it may be because they've heard the expression 'cream teas' and erroneously believe that refers to putting cream in tea rather than the true meaning of taking tea (with milk) accompanied by scones with clotted cream (instead of butter) and jam. Cream in tea goes greasy and horrible.

EDIT: I had a vague memory of having mentioned this to you before but I searched the reviews, didn't find it, and so went ahead with posting this. I remember now that indeed I had made a very similar comment but it was regarding the Hermione/Giles meeting in TSROAM rather than on this story.
Comments from author:
Yes. I went back and fixed it in TSROAM, since I appreciate getting sound advice. But I had forgotten about the other usage. There's probably yet another such error in even earlier writings of mine. (Like the problem where it took me decades to find out that the things that go into guns are magazines of cartridges instead of clips of bullets.)

Thank you again, because this is something I can fix. And learn from. Granted, I learn a lot of new things all the time, even at my advanced age. :D

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from Amberdrake
Review:
I'm not sure how many times I've read this now but it still has me laughing out loud. It's totally Tera.
Comments from author:
Thanks! One of the fun things about writing it was all the comments that essentially said 'why don't you introduce X?' when I had already written something with X and I was just waiting to publish it.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from bucksavage
Review:
Just read this through and damn, that was a seriously funny read! Makes me W-I-S-H for sequels...but then that word would being even more insanity to the party, wouldn't it? LOL
Comments from author:
Don't say the W-word! :D :D

And thanks for the review and the recommendation. I'm not sure a sequel makes much sense, given where I aimed the story. But one can never tell when my muse will hit me with an inspiration. And when I say 'hit me' I mean 'strike me repeatedly with a heavy object that has sharp points jutting out in horrible ways'. My muse is less like Salma Hayek and more like Annie Wilkes.

Review of chapter "The Idiotic Necrotic Exotic" from DieselDriver
Review:
The really troubling thought about Harmony is that there are really people running around who are that stupid.
Comments from author:
And yet she's the only vampire in the world who figured out that bit with the camcorder. :D

I'm not counting Angel, aka Captain Hairgel, because in one episode he could see himself in a mirror. He looked at his hair and complained, "Why didn't anybody tell me?!" :D

Review of chapter "The Reception Deception Dilemma" from DieselDriver
Review:
I love it when I can leave a chapter while still laughing out loud at the antics.

Oh and that reminds me of one I like:

Semantics is antics with words... ;-)
Comments from author:
:D When I had the idea for the start, I knew I needed a complete story before I could start, because most people don't see the Buffyverse as integrating in any way with the BigBangVerse (or any other ultra-rational show).

Review of chapter "The Apartment Disconcertment Intervention" from DieselDriver
Review:
Reading this again (3rd time) and it still marvels me that you can take such a stupid show and make it sound interesting. Maybe I'll try watching it again. Maybe if I have a half a glass of rum and soda first and another to sip during the show, I'll like it better. Maybe with a flexoril to go with the drink. That should do it. Umm, darn, I might have already done that and it went directly into my memory outbox... Takes a darned good writer to take a pigs ear and make it into a silk purse. Thanks for this story
Comments from author:
My advice: don't watch the entire half hour. Go to YouTube and watch a few three-minute clips. If those don't entertain you, then adding rum probably won't do it.

Review of chapter "The Apartment Disconcertment Intervention" from Zorgdub
Review:
I was thinking about how your Alex Mack story is awesome
And that is when a thought suddenly came through my mind:
"But I know another story of the same kind!
And I have ignored it too long, I should read some."

I didn't expect the second time to be as charming as the original
I hadn't realized that I now know Sheldon and his pal
The sarcastic zinger about aliens made me laugh like a loon
Laughed so hard that I scared my cat into running out of the room!
Comments from author:
:D :D

Thanks for the rhyming review. I don't think that many people are interested in a Buffy/Big Bang Theory cross, just because fans of one don't seem to watch the other as much as, say, SPN or True Blood. After all, that crossover is a weird combination of 'all myths are true' and the ultra-rational.

Review:
That was so funny, great job.
Comments from author:
Thanks! And I appreciate the recommendation too. Always reward the authors you like. It's like Pavlov ringing a bell in front of his dogs, only instead of saliva you get new stories. :D :D

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from twlight
Review:
This is sooooo wonderful! I love how Willow explained her magic. I also love Penny's interview wonderful. Sadly TTH doesn't allow reviewing on finished chapters if the story is done or I would write more reviews as I hadn't until today looked for Big Bang fanfics on this site. Again this is a wonderful wonderful wonderful story. I also love how Xander handled the two young slayers when they broke the rules. Having Penny set up Xander and Faith is also wonderful as was Penny's reaction to a vampire in her apartment and the fact that she invited the vamp in to save the guys is wonderful.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I felt that in a TBBT universe, Willow's 'magic' would just be 'physics with a fancy costume'. :-)

And I'm pretty sure TtH lets you review any chapter you want, but you have to physically select the chapter you want to review.

If you really enjoyed it, I wouldn't mind a recommendation, either. Or your favorite Sheldon quote. :-)

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from zonianx
Review:
This was a fun story and a great way to kill a rainy day at the beach. I don't know TBBT crowd but have a pretty good picture of Sheldon and Amy and plan to see if any reruns are on in Costa Rica now. It should be interesting to see if they are anything like I picture them.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for the review! If you really liked it, feel free to give it a recommendation too. And even if you can't find reruns of TBBT, you can find lots of pieces from episodes on YouTube, and you can probably find entire episodes posted in a lot of places.

Review of chapter "The Arbitrary Skepticism Disclosure" from DieselDriver
Review:
Oh my, "a bec de corvin". In this context, what exactly is "a bec de corvin"? ROFLMAO... Don't worry, it can spare a little laughing off... ;o
Comments from author:
:-) A 'bec de corvin' is a type of polearm, so named because its weapon tip looks (roughly) like a raven's beak. It is in fact where Bek got her nom de plume.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from Tir
Review:
I do like this story. You write well, and it's entertaining.

However, as with "Xander and yet ANOTHER demon", you set up an interesting story, reveal the various worlds to the other party, and then you don't go anywhere with it. It just ends there. I'd love to see a sequel of sorts, to either of those.
Comments from author:
Well, I designed "The Reality-Theory Convergence" from the ground up to aim at that particular ending, so I really don't have a follow-up to it. Some day, my muse may hit me in the head with a half-brick inna sock and make me write a sequel, but I don't have one now.

Ditto for "Xander and yet ANOTHER Demon." I set up almost a dozen possible sequel hooks in it and its 'sequel', but my muse is simply not interested in going back there right now.

I was definitely *not* going to write a sequel to "League of Extraordinary Women", and yet right now I'm on the second sequel. I wasn't even going to write "League of Extraordinary Women" but my muse saw the challenge on the TtH homepage one day and the concept exploded in my cerebrum, and she forced me to write it. So there's no predicting what my muse will subject me to next.

Oh, and the easiest way to get your favorite authors to write more of your favorite stories is to give them positive reinforcement, like Recommendations. (I consider your review positive reinforcement too, but some writers are sort of thin-skinned, so be forewarned.)
