Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from DieselDriver
I was beginning to wonder when something was going to go wrong and sure enough, sounds like "it's" going to hit the fan really soon. Uh Oh.

I don't see how anyone can wear those things. Spanx are girdles right? Yech! Plate armor is probably more comfortable. Probably makes it impossible to pinch a bottom too. That's no fun. Silly me, I like chunky girls who are squeezably soft. Hugging a skinny girl is like hugging a bundle of sticks. I imagine that hugging a girl in a girdle is about as much fun if the thing squeezes the softness out of the girl. Chain mail is better, at least it's sort of pliable. Athletic girls are nice as long as they don't go coo coo on the low body fat index.

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from Starfox
Good chapter. The lists for the kitchen reminded me of my own move from my parents' home. One always forgets something. Sweet "mom" moments for Alex with Shar, and nice romance on the horizon. I had to laugh at the lawn comment - if I ever get a lawn, it'll be plastic or a wild mess, can't imagine mowing any lawn, unless it's to gather hay for cows.

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from asqwerth
"I might have some plot or Chekov's Guns or something hidden in there too."

I'm seeing them everywhere now, LOL.

So now I'm guessing the neighbour with the dark glasses is actually hiding some mutation/super eyepower caused the GC-161....

Review of chapter "Silicide" from fpb
CaBil makes good points about Leonetti, but in the Italian army in my time - I hope things have changed now that the army is all-professional, but certain bad habits die hard - there were an awful lot of Colonels either attached to useless offices or to Staff bodies, without effective command or without much field experience, promoted not for merit but for seniority and in order to let them enjoy a higher wage in their final years of career. These people would be apt to have "friends" in higher places in the army, or among politicians - nepotism, alas, is alive and very very well and living in Rome and places connected. Many of these people would be satisfied with the rank they had achieved and just let the time go by till retirement - I remember one Lieut.Col., great company at work and at table, funny as all get out, lazier than a Brazilian sloth, and promoted purely because he came from an old military family, even though he was himself about as suited for the military as Stan Laurel. But there are also the ambitious ones, who, having spent most of their careers as REMF - we would call them "imboscati" - suddenly develop an interest in active service when they see an opportunity to swap the castle and gold stars of a Colonel's epaulettes for the frieze and white stars of a General's. I see Leonetti as one such type. The post of liaison on an international committee would be exactly the kind of springboard his backers in the Ministry of Defence would see as a brilliant next step.

>> "about as suited for the military as Stan Laurel"
:D :D I like that line.

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from SirLee
Hmmm. Did Alex tell Jack & Co. that her aunt has found out about Terawatt? Because, well, one possible solution for the gymbag issue is to courier it to Paris, c/o the aunt. Alex may be "officially" taking a vacation, but Jack is not the sort of person who believes planned vacations are a realistic option in their line of work. He would want to have contingency plans ready, maybe up to stationing a Blackbird in Europe for the week. If nothing happens... well, Alex does not need to know about the arrangements.

Speculation about Brazil reminded me of one thing... Alex has visited North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Will she visit Oceania and South America before the end of the series? Maybe even Antarctica?
Comments from author:
Antarctica. She could take Victor Cready with her! "Man, I'm freezing!" (fireball)

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from HMaxMarius
Hmmm... Marsha might be almost too good a Terawatt impersonator... =D

And with her and Louis' luck...
Comments from author:
:D At pretty much every con there will be other Terawatt cosplayers who look nearly as realistic, or perhaps even more realistic. As long as Marsha can't fly or hurl lightning or turn into a silvery blob or lift tons with her mind, no one's likely to think one more booth babe is really Terawatt. That's as realistic as thinking that Jessica Nigri is really Juliet Starling.

Oh wait, Jessica Nigri *was* Juliet Starling, wasn't she? :D

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from dcarson
Digging up the monster can be bad. However you at least know that it might be a problem then and can have lots of firepower waiting. Not digging it up means it comes out at a unexpected time.

Jack needs to fedex a spare uniform to the Paris Terawatt liaison or some such, just in case.

Well, you'll get to see how this plays out. Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel!

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
This chapter should have been edited down to a couple of paragraphs.
Comments from author:
Ouch. :D :D

I might have some plot or Chekov's Guns or something hidden in there too. Or maybe I just had diarrhea of the keyboard. :D

Review of chapter "Return" from fanreaderonetwo
"So there's sure to be trouble in Paris. By not wanting to take the Terawatt gym bag along, Alex has performed the equivalent of asking "What can go wrong?" or saying "It's quiet... too quiet." Besides, we already know that Maggie had scheduled one of her spectaculars for the French capital. And before that Alex is surely going to have to deal with a few Umbrella mutations..."


I was wondering if I was the only one who spotted a musket....

Now I'm seeing Alex in Paris frantically renting or "borrowing" (from a closed or abandoned by staff costume shop) a Terawatt costume in order to handle whatever evilness you have dreamed up. The flimsier and more ill-fitting and generally cheesy it is, the funnier.

Alternatively, when O'Neill hears about the Paris trip he quietly arranges for a Terawatt uniform set to be there. Maybe there is an SRI team there resting or training, or its with someone on their "cooperative" list.

Wondering if the SRI had anything to do with the photographer and Alex being near the excavation.....
I'm also wondering how much firepower the locals will have standing by during the dig.

You'll soon find out answers to those questions. Because inquiring minds want to know. :D

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from Magi
Diane: "Doctor Nasty, you are charged with seven hundred counts of murder one, seventeen counts of treason, and... tax evasion!"

Like what DC!Buffy did in Cross Purposes: When in doubt, sic the IRS on them! :)

Tell me SRI is putting a couple heroes and jets on standby when the dig up the Umbrella building. Because it's a disaster waiting to happen. Let me guess: Frank taking AL Mack to the building is General Sneaky McSneak Jack's way of discreetly putting the big guns onsite.

Also, don't remember which chapter, but I love when Alex asks "what else can happen" and her Tphone rings. Cue looking up at the ceiling, begging God/The Great Pumpkin/ TPTB/Cthullu/Flying Spaghetti Monster for forgiveness and promising to never do that again.
Comments from author:
The Flying Spaghetti Monster. Definitely the Flying Spaghetti Monster and his noodly appendages.

And the IRS bit is a classic, going back at least as far as Al Capone.

Review of chapter "Prom Clean-up" from texaswookie
To bad she didn't find Matilda Wormwood instead of Carrie. True I think Matilda only had about half the amount of power of Carrie. She was still young though and might have grown into that. She had closer to Tera level of control though. She still had at least as much power as Tera though. Thing is, this could very easily have been the way that Jo went had they not figured a way to stop her and make her see reason. They've been real lucky that this is the first meta human fight that did this sort of damage. Maggie being a well known bad guy her destroying places isn't as surprising as random people with powers doing it. Somehow I expect that there will be some fallout from it though. At least one politician or news person are going to demand some way to regulate this sort of thing. That or demand a superhero damage tax.
Comments from author:
Matilda was about at Tera levels on power and control. Book Carrie was a couple orders of magnitude above them on power.

A superpowers damage tax is the perfect way to handle things. Right? Everyone loves it when someone else has to pay the taxes.
"Doctor Nasty, you are charged with seven hundred counts of murder one, seventeen counts of treason, and... tax evasion!"

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from Zeviz
Alex going to Paris while there is something big in the planning there? Well, it sounds a bit early for the finale, so I have to scrap the guess that the Orphan compound is near Paris. (I assume the final battle will be at the Orphan compound.) Although if it's guarded by dinosaurs, it probably has to be on an island somewhere.

And obviously, nothing could possibly go wrong when digging up the invincible monster. :P
Comments from author:
Absolutely! What can go wrong there? :D

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from VillageOrchid
Several opportunities for Annie to get menaced or kidnapped over the summer, and a few for Alex. Meanwhile, hoping that Alex calls up SRI over this possibly "could be even worse" situation with digging up the undead in a highly populated area.

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from mooncowthree
Going for the "where's my uniform when i need it" play huh? and i totally forgot Alex was already planning on going to Paris way before we knew there was going to be a Paris op.
Comments from author:
Well, I might have planned some of this really far in advance... :D
