Review of chapter "The Misplaced Key" from Gideon
Review:
Those ideas were all great! I especially loved the one with Tom and Bellatrix :) I take it the bad guys were fated to win in that universe :(
And when you started talking about the last place that the key should ever be sent, the last person that anyone would ever expect. For some reason I thought of Steve Urkle. Ugh. I'm sure you can do much better than that!
Or maybe she can become a smurf! Blue is not green! But Smurfette would be too obvious so the Key must become... Whiny Smurf!
Comments from author:
Not necessarily. Just because her parents were Tom Riddle and Bellatrix Lestrange, does not mean they wouldn't protect her... it becomes a question of "which bad guys?"

Steve Urkle! Hah! And the smurfs!

No, the crossover I'm aiming this one at is a *lot* more recent and popularly known than that (well, maybe not more famous than the Smurfs, but...)... it's probably just that I'm crazy for even thinking of this one, in particular the timepoint where the crossover will take place (because quite honestly, that "green = alien" doesn't really fit the crossover except at the timepoint I'm using). I will point out the greenness was meant to refer to the location, not the characters...

Review:
Huh? Got everything til the end. Okay that makes sense... Didn't quite get that part. ***headdesk*** Owww. Yup that helped. lol.
Comments from author:
What wasn't clear? (Other than the fact that I did not identify where the Key is actually going; that was on purpose...)

Review of chapter "The Misplaced Key" from AnFan
Review:
This could lead to just about anything. Which I'm sure was the intention. :)

Don't know why, but for some reason the image of Jay and Silent Bob came to mind... I can just imagine Glory stopping at the convenience story they hang out at and running away in disgust to get away from them. Of course, didn't they also appear in the movie Dogma? I wonder how it would be if the key ended up as the last descendent of Jesus?

See, those are the weird ideas that pop into your mind when not getting enough sleep :)

Glad to see you're still writing, and posting. As a testament to your last story, I've found that I don't have the same eagerness to jump to open new stories notices in my mail, now that The Courier isn't being updated.
Comments from author:
Yes, Jay and Silent Bob did appear in Dogma! The Key as the Scion? Interesting...

After the followup to this gets rolling, I plan to start brainstorming and skimming through all the Courier reviews to see if there's other tales I can do in that universe. (As I promised over there, aside from the involvement of the Key in both, *this* tale will be totally unrelated.)

Review of chapter "The Misplaced Key" from Wavelet
Review:
The prologue is quite well written (even if you were mean enough not to tell us where Dawn is going). That said, I've always been a bit leery of stories which place the Key somewhere else because they need to walk a fine line between writing a Dawn who grew up in a different situation and writing an OC who happens to be the Key. Considering your past track record, my guess is that you will be able to walk this fine line quite deftly, but, even so, I felt that the caution was warranted.

Well done, and I hope to see more from you soon.
Comments from author:
This is going to be more in the OC category there... *but* due to what the crossover is, I think it'll work just fine, because I'm adopting the crossover's writing style and POV.

Review of chapter "The Misplaced Key" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Well, I hope I enjoy the "perfectly normal" or unspectacular location that you pick. Monks not knowing the that "real" or "nonspectacular" world has danger in it as well.

Review of chapter "The Misplaced Key" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
So... having said where the Key's NOT going, it's now going somewhere that's so simple and obvious nobody would expect it to be there?

I can't decide whetehr that sounds like a promising plan or something that's going to end up horribly backfiring on them...
Comments from author:
Neither can I. But I thought it would be an interesting way to set up a crossover...
