Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
You *wish* it was made from shredded slime demons.

They'd be more sanitary.
Comments from author:
At least shredded slime demons don't have 'allowable amounts of insect legs' in them.

Review:
A cramping and bloated Xendra is no ones friend. Indeed she might be everyone's nightmare!
Comments from author:
Oh, don't worry, the cramping is still a few days away. :D

AA very detailed description of a torture shopping trip and a nice scene with Willow. Well done.
Comments from author:
What makes you think that's an *unusual* shopping trip? :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from Riniko
Review:
Don't worry you are getting closer to 'Joss Whedon levels of evil' with every new chapter because it has me craving the next one more than a bowl of ice-cream after every reading. Wishing Willow would find her inter lesbian soon, but you know when she does Xandra will finally revert back. So, it will end up will Xander/Sandra going back and forth to keep Willow happy in the end.
Comments from author:
Well, I do have things planned out all the way to the finale, which is quite a long way away. So you can speculate, but I'm not blabbing.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from DieselDriver
Review:
"what women go through in order to look their best" certainly is a waste of time and money as far as I'm concerned. Putting all that crap on their faces when 99% of them have faces that are very pretty without it and hideous with it? YUCK!

The best thing a woman can put on her face is a washcloth! I think all that crap is just self insecurity reinforced by advertisements designed to suck all the money out of their wallets and purses.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: NO WOMAN IS COMPETENT TO JUDGE HER OWN APPEARANCE!

R.E. your reply to Riniko: "Why do I torture my readers? That would be because I'm an evil, evil author. I aspire to Joss Whedon levels of evil, but i haven't gotten there yet. :D"

His show would be ever so much better if you wrote the storylines.

Reply to your comment: Again, that's advertising which plays to women's insecurities by their societal roles. How many men are to stupid and self centered to be attracted by a smart strong woman? Way to many. In primitive societies these attitudes seem to have worked mostly for the advantage of building a stronger bunch of offspring. Now though, those are weaknesses in my opinion. Minor but still weaknesses.

As far as the early episodes. Gah! I couldn't get through them. I tried, I really did, but after reading your and other's fan fics, there's just no way they can stand up to the images in my head.
Comments from author:
There are lots of successful men with faces that would stop a clock. Some of them have even gotten their own Hollywood movies. Women? Not so much. Societal expectations are a large part of that, IMHO.


And there is no way I could have bettered the great storylines of seasons 1-5, even if there were a couple forgettable episodes in that 100-episode span. On the other hand, seasons 6 and 7 were occasionally agonizing. (All right, I admit that The Trio was pretty hilarious for a while, and Dark Willow was one of my favorite Big Bads.)

Review:
Oh, this is gonna be fun to watch.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from Dragan
Review:
Did someone order a Queen-C and Dragoness-Xendra Double-team?

Oh? You want a Side of Willow-babble to confuse the issue some?

Anything to drink with that?

;)
Comments from author:
Having to endure Queen C's efforts ought to get Xendra in a fine mental state for the meeting. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from DavidEmpey
Review:
1) Yay! More Xendra.
2) :( but no more for 2 whole weeks! I don't know if I'll be able to stand the suspense!
3) Yeah, the expectations people have for how women are supposed to look are just stupid, aren't they?
And we men just have no idea, do we?
Comments from author:
[1] Thanks.
[2] Sorry, but I'm making sure my publishing schedule doesn't slip.
[3] Seth Rogen is fine as a 'leading man' in movies, but Kate Upton is pointed at as 'looking pudgy'. This is insane.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part V" from LeChasseur
Review:
PMS. Now ?
Oh boy. Poor watchers.

And really, when will Willow discover her inner-lesbian ? Because, if she continue, I think she will break-up with Xendra before ! Talk about ironic.
Comments from author:
Yes, Willow's inner Ellen DeGeneres is most likely the reason she is so freaked over all of this.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part IV" from raxadian
Review:
Short chapter, funny how Xendra still uses male pronouns when thinking about herself. Sure she is not The Zeppo, but she is also not Xena. I wonder how long it will be until someone gets Xendra decent training?

Oh, and you wanna bet that there is at least a god or goddess involved in "Xena return"? Because Xendra is a force of good so something really powerful must be altering the variables so Xander stays female longer each time.
Comments from author:
Xendra still thinks of himself as 'Xander stuck in the wrong body'. He's not just going to wake up one morning and say 'hey I am fully female, I think I'll go shopping for miniskirts with Cordelia!' Anyway, he now has a timeline until he can go back to Xander. In theory.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part IV" from Starfox
Review:
Good chapter. Good action scenes, and very nice lines about "Kiss" or "Clot".
Comments from author:
Kiss of the vampire? Please. Just say no. :D I think a group of vampires should be a sparkle. Think how offended real vamps would be.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part IV" from Riniko
Review:
Oh, the two week wait was so painful, but the story is so good. Why do you punish me so? Xandra was playing it smart with the minions, but she does not have the experience or power to handle more than a few as yet. And it looks like she will need to take some time off to recover herself, while she is doing this maybe she can look into some form of armor to help protect herself or other defensive/attack options. The javelin would be good, but it is not something that can be hidden while traveling and is likely not going to hit the heart easily from a distance. Maybe an item that flares out when it hits, so that it can't just be pulled out without causing more damage. I will be eagerly awaiting the next chapter to this excellent story.
Comments from author:
Why do I torture my readers? That would be because I'm an evil, evil author. I aspire to Joss Whedon levels of evil, but i haven't gotten there yet. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part III" from Tabercil
Review:
Okay, you've gotten this story to a VERY interesting point. Waiting two weeks for the next chapter to come is going to be a interminable torment...

As for Cordy, she's sounds about right - seems to echo Ironbear's characterization of her. Not that that's a bad thing as it's one of my favorite spins on her, with Cordyfan's being THE favorite.
Comments from author:
Cordyfan has given Cordy a different motivation/ability to evolve into a better person, while Ironbear has given her Xander (usually) as a 'softening agent'. We're all trying to change her from her season-1-early-episodes personality in one way or another.

Nice new chapter, keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Thanks! The summer arc may be a bit longer than most of the other story arcs.
