Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from Selonianth
Review:
IF they don't shrink it... she'll have to keep a giant mongoose in her backyard.
Comments from author:
Yeah, I've got an interesting idea on that front. I just need to develop it a little.

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
The only thing missing from this is the picture in the paper the next day... Great idea... I keep hoping that Timon will shrink back to mongoose size so Willow will have her pet!

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from Difdi
Review:
Actually, moongooses (mongeese?) kill cobras. Specifically cobras. Not snakes in general.

The myth about them being lethal to any snake actually resulted in a plan to use them as rattlesnake control in the southwest decades ago. Within a month of releasing hundreds of them into a rattlesnake infested area, the last mongoose was dead. A mongoose has reflexes perfectly suited to fighting a cobra, and a strong resistance to cobra venom.

Rattlesnake (and presumably Olvikan) venom works entirely differently than cobra venom. And rattlesnakes are about 10-15 times faster than a cobra. So a mongoose that can run circles around a cobra becomes dinner for a rattlesnake.

And unless Willow pronounces mongoose as "munhuss" it's unlikely it would be possible to mishear hummus as mongoose. Even Buffy isn't that bad.
Comments from author:
Well, firstly it's a magically augmented mongoose, and who knows what type of snake Olvikan is meant to be. So anything goes.

Secondly, 'tis a comedy fic based on a fictional story in the first place, so don't expect biological precision when it's not even in the show in the first place (like vampires).

Thirdly, I've misheard things incredibly wrongly, and Oz is a soft spoken chap, so again, anything goes.

But anyway, thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from TheKnightofFaerie
Review:
*snickers*

This is funny. Silliness abounds within and it's highly improbable. But kudos to you for this bit of malarkey.

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Delightful.

Within a year of the Day Of The Mongoose, work began on the film re-imagining of "The Food Of The Gods" by H.G. Wells.
Comments from author:
Hmm...now that's an idea...

Review:
Pure and total genius. Please contine this into a series.
Comments from author:
I've got a couple of ideas about how to do that, but it'll take me a while to finalize my plans.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from CPTSkip
Review:
Hooray for Timons the Narcoleptic Mongoose! I think you have the makings of a neat children's picture book series here.

Well done and will there be a sequel? If the Scoobies can only get ADAM and Glory to wear snakeskin boots their problems will be solved in double quick time. Lol!
Comments from author:
A children's book? Hmmm...

There might be a sequel. I've got a couple of ideas, I just need to work on them.

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from EricJablow
Review:
I believe I suggested the challenge "Rikki-Tiki-Xavi," where Xander is possessed by a mongoose spirit instead of a hyena spirit. This is a more comical treatment.
Comments from author:
Yes, I saw that when I looked to see if there were any challenges for my story. I thought it was interesting, but I didn't know enough about mongeese to give it a go, and besides, I wanted to write a comedy piece.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "The Mayor & The Mongoose" from TaraLi
Review:
Rikk-tikk-tikki-tikki-tchk!

At the hole where he went in
Red-Eye called to Wrinkle-Skin.
Hear what little Red-Eye saith:
“Nag, come up and dance with death!”

Eye to eye and head to head,
(Keep the measure, Nag.)
This shall end when one is dead;
(At thy pleasure, Nag.)
Turn for turn and twist for twist —
(Run and hide thee, Nag.)
Hah! The hooded Death has missed!
(Woe betide thee, Nag!)"

Screw those calling this crack! It was a f'ing *BRILLIANT* idea, and Timon is *OBVIOUSLY* a descendent of the Great Red-Eye Snake Killer!
