Review of chapter "Field Trip" from Traszgo
"Action Girl went straight at the sasquatch-on-steroids, and just as it reached out to grab her, she did a baseball slide right between its legs and pulled out the .45 from under her armpit. She put a three-shot grouping right in the thing’s nads as she slid under and past it."

If you want to see this scene realized in glorious Technicolour, the third episode of The Librarians has it. Action Girl is Rebecca Romijn and the sasquatch is a minotaur (in deliciously cheesy fake fur), and it was four shots, but otherwise it was this exact scene.

What? You mean someone already stole my scene? :D :D

In this case I have to ask: is it a case of 'great minds think alike' or is it 'simple minds seldom differ'? :D

Review of chapter "Half the Battle" from cwolf
It took me awhile on this. Not sure why this morning of all things I realized the additional conclusion.

Maggie basically immobilized Hanna to keep her from being injured in the fighting? In her own screwed up way, she cared about Hanna the same way she cared about the Raptors?

Or did I read an oddball addition into this lol
Comments from author:
Yes. She's trying to get Hanna to understand that Maggie's way is The One Correct Way, and Maggie does not want to hurt Hanna. Other than jabbing a spike into her neck and causing unbearable shocking agony every time Hanna even twitches.

The things we do for our daughters. Sigh... :D

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from (Current Donor)deiticlast
Btw, I just downloaded this story as an epub and opened it in Book Bazaar Reader on my Dell Tablet/Computer, and it came out to 2,959 pages. Congratulations, Diane: you've written a book longer and infinitely more interesting than War and Peace.
Comments from author:
Rats! I was aiming for 3000 pages exactly! I guess I need to go back in and inset more hard returns... :D

No, seriously, thank you. I did not intend for this to be another "A la recherche du temps perdu" but I do have a way of letting my muse run rampant until the result is much longer than I had planned. My original outline didn't change, but the story arcs got a lot longer than I had planned.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from Darrigo
Awesome story. Though you missed just one thing in your epilogue. What happened to Maggie Walsh's concerns? She may have been a psychopath but she had a point that the life extension gene therapy she came up would cause overpopulation.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! (I wouldn't mind a recommendation either, if it's in you. :D )

As for Maggie's concern, I deliberately left that open as a plot device in case future stories explode in my head.

Review of chapter "Silicosis" from mooncowthree
So I never asked why you went with the name Appledore, but I just finished watching Sherlock 3x03 and I thought you might have lifted it from there but it aired in Jan of this year, much too late to influence this chapter. So did you just play with his name and come up with that? I assumed you did because I had never heard of anything with that name before, but looking it up shows a number of places in England with the name, which matches up with the Alexverse version of what a 'pureblood' is.
Comments from author:
I made it up all by my lonesome. And I doubt the writers of Sherlock stole it from TSRoAM. If they did, I'm fine with that. But there were some HP names I just could not go along with, including Albus Dumbledore and Draco Malfoy. Where my muse draws the line can be a sticking issue, since she was fine with Scrimgeour.

At any rate, I played with names for the Harry Potter/James Bond part of the Alexverse, and I found it amusing to switch the first syllables of Albus Dumbledore around and find meaningful words out of that. Hence Albus Dumbledore becomes Dumont Appledore. Just a little personal entertainment. But then, when I had the idea for this story, I had boxed myself in. Dumont Appledore, Ron Wellesley, Drake... Okay, so those have to be fanon for this story too. Sorry.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from fictionfanb
I loved this story. I have not read the Alex Mack cannon, but I have a hard time imagining it's as good as this story.
Comments from author:
You can watch some episodes of Alex for free if you look around on the internet. Bear in mind that Alex starts out as a typical tween in a sitcom and evolves over the four years of the series.

Review of chapter "Return" from fpb
The trouble with an AlexVerse version of Kim Possible is that Kim IS Alex, minus the super-powers and with a rather dumber - if equally well-intentioned - boyfriend. "I'm your average girl, and I'm here to save the world" - remind you of anyone?

Did you get my What if fic, Diane? I've a couple of more in completion.
Edited in: I used tth's own facility, so it either came as fpb or as my normal name, which you saw in a comment - Fabio Paolo Barbieri.
Comments from author:
At least Alex's boyfriend isn't losing his pants every couple weeks. :D

And no, I did not. What username did you send them from? One of my spam filters may have grabbed them.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from Deadpan
Really late on this, kind of pointless by now, but I think I finally found the perfect theme song for Alex.

More on track: Thank you for the lovely story. I will continue to follow this multi-verse over in your new Harry (Bond) Potter work and Cross Purposes. I have hopes for more dimensional travel so that people from her first team-up can see how Alex has grown, and I am looking forward to finding out what Alex-verse Luna Lovegood is like.
Comments from author:
I love Kim Possible! There ought to be an AlexVerse version of her, but I didn't have the room for one more crossover in the story.

As for Luna, I hope you'll like what I do with her. But you'll have to wait until chapter 21 to meet her.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from hmhughes
A wonderful very good writen story! Almost sad to see that it ended to be honest ;(.

Sorry about the delay in reveiwing, but the flu decided to visit and refused to leave. About the only good thing that came from that was getting to read all of this at once, (or if you listen to my daughter, her getting to read more HP fanfic without me booting her off the computer).
Comments from author:
Other than the flu, that all seems pretty great. I still remember Dave Barry's column years ago about getting what he assumed was The Martian Death Flu because it was so horrible. You wouldn't think that a column about being miserably sick would be hilarious, but it was.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from djhardim
Thank you again for a superb story. It didn't hit me until latter that this was the story of the Eugenics War.

One question - By the time of the epilogue, has Zephram Cochrane developed Warp Drive?
Comments from author:
:D :D I won't reveal that answer, because I might someday have a burst of inspiration from my muse and I might want to incorporate it.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from TammyJet
This has been an amazing story, and one hell of an adventure. Thank you so much for this. I'm awful about reviewing, but have been eagerly following this story from the beginning. I actually just reread it, beginning to end. It's a definite favorite. I look forward to further stories in this universe of yours :)
Comments from author:
Thanks! And thanks for the recommendation too. The newest story started yesterday.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from (Current Donor)Starfox
Good epilogue. Alex stayed Terawatt and kept saving the world, which seems doing quite well. Good, happy endings for most everyone, a Fitting end for an epic story. It was this story, more even than the first in the series, that made me change my mind about Ron Weasley, and I cannot count all the series I looked up after seeing the crossovers here (I bought quite a number of them too) during this wild ride. I love the way Alex grew, and matured, and became a confident woman, and the superhero of her world. I particularly like how, especially in the end, even characters one grew to hate were (almost in some cases) sympathetic, or had some noble traits. And the double-crosses and dirty tricks... well plotted there!

Thanks for hours of entertainment!
Comments from author:
And thanks for sticking with me all the way to the end.

Review of chapter "Final Battle" from (Current Donor)Starfox
Good scenes with Dani, a nice use of the evil twin plot. And to see the paranoid orphans seeing traps, just because they cannot fathom an enemy that doesn't want to kill people... very good, fits a superhero story perfectly. Tobias and Jo bonding in the face of danger or death ... well thought too, especially Tobias' reaction to her (apparent) unavoidable and painful death.
A logical "Testament" of Locke too, consequent in his "survival of the fittest" ideology at least. Good to see Victor having a future too. And I love Jack and Willow kissing on the battle field. Very well done wrap up there.
Comments from author:
Thanks. And this is why I chose to make Vic an OC instead of a fictional fiery super.

Review of chapter "Half the Battle" from (Current Donor)Starfox
Great rescue there, smart thinking wins once again. A Fitting end for Maggie. For all her evil, it's both touching how she chooses her end, and how the dinosaurs react and mourn her. Good insight into Hanna - a nasty revelation for her to deal with, but should make her grow and mature more. Or not, seeing her thoughts on grapplers and T-Rexes. Danielle surprised me again, smart death man's switch there.
Comments from author:
the trouble with people like Maggie and Danielle is that they *should* do smart things. Sometimes writers aren't as smart as their characters, and the 'genius' thing is only an informed attribute.
