Review of chapter "Prom" from Magi
Okay, so Maine. Lots of Steven King stuff possible. The Mist? Lake Placid? "Googles". Chamberlain, Maine is the setting for Carrie...and it's prom season.

Holy crud. This is not good.

I assume Andrew is from BtVS?

EDIT: Though you promised BtVS Andrew would show up enentually.
Comments from author:
No, this is not Andrew Wells from BtVS. This is a handsome, brown-haired Andrew who's muscular and good-looking enough to cheese off someoen without trying.

Review of chapter "Prom" from kaekae
I just had an idea for a non-evil orphan. No one else probably has read this, but I want to Go Home by Gordon Kormon features a kid who is good at everything (and hates it). You should read it.
I doubt you'd write Rudy Miller in, but I'm having fun imagining him.

Review of chapter "Prom" from RobHumm
Nice to see Alex getting some recognition.
you said about Alex's mentor

It will be a fictional photojournalist. And not Jimmy Olsen.

given your apparent taste in movies my bets on Kolchak.

Review of chapter "Prom" from SilverWave
I was sure there was going to be a terrorist shootout at the airport, but then remembered that that had already been done, in a Whateley Academy fic :-)

Damn that was a shame, it was a hell of a shoot out.

hmm are you still doing Phase? - looks like they may have sorted the website out (at last :-) ).

>Yes, I am still writing Phase.
Well that just made my day :-)

Comments from author:
Yes, I am still writing Phase. I'm working on Phase novel #10 and a Phase short story before that and a Phase/Aquerna story after #10. Oh, and a dozen other Whateley stories too.

Review of chapter "Prom" from Zorgdub
~~[ Boy, was she spoiled rotten. At least when it came to flying somewhere. ]~~

Don't worry, you're nowhere near as bad as Ayla Goodkind. :D
Comments from author:
NO ONE is as spoiled as Ayla! Not Cordelia Chase! Not the cast of Gossip Girl or The O.C. or even London Tipton of 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'! No one! :D

Review of chapter "Prom" from HMaxMarius
Wow! No Code TW's for Pulitzer, Prom or Yearbook day...

*Looks up at the Costa Concordia sized anvil blacking out the sky*
Comments from author:
Yup, something's looming on the horizon, and you've got two crossovers in it.

Review of chapter "Prom" from SlowMercury
I really enjoyed this chapter, and I'm not even entirely sure why. But here are some reasons why! It's because it's always nice to have a glimpse of Alex's ordinary life. I thought her people-watching was cool, and her meeting Bruce-not-Batman and Julie was also cool. I thought it was sweet how all those people surprised Alex to help with the yearbook CD burning party; it really shows what a good editor/person/friend she was. And I'm surprised at how relieved I am that Alex got a break from superheroics and let the rest of her life continue, meaning prom and AP exams and, I suppose, the Pulitzer as well, even if that's not normal life for most people.

I have really enjoyed, through this whole story, how nice Alex is to other people, and how other people respond to that.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Alex is a nice person, and that's what makes her into a hero.

Review of chapter "Prom" from Grovtech
I loved the comment about nothing happening at the awards ceremony or the prom and this not being a comic-book. Looking back at Alex from the beginning to her now, you can really see how the character has developed. It's very much a show and not tell as the school's computer guru's got behind her and got the yearbook DVD's done not only timely, but fun too.

I'm still wondering just who is going to be her mentor, but that's because I've probably missed all the clues. I also have not the slightest idea of who Andrew, not-Andy, is. That only means I get to enjoy the total surprise of your reveal! :)

Comments from author:
I really have not put in any clues about her mentor, but you'll find out very soon. It will be a fictional photojournalist. And not Jimmy Olsen.

Review of chapter "Prom" from Zeviz
No attacks for the Pulitzer ceremony, or the exam week and prom? I am disappointed in the villains. :P

And it's impressive that you've managed to make more descriptions of everyday life sound interesting.

And everything will go smoothly for... not a lot longer.

Review of chapter "Prom" from VillageOrchid
I got one. And you know a lot of world-wide agencies are probably going to buy the left over year books. Enjoyed this. Hard to believe that neither the Pulitzer nor the prom was interrupted. Almost like she didn't live in a comic book. :)
Comments from author:
The world's unluckiest criminals hit the Pulitzers and get both Batman and Terawatt up in their grills. "Why did we hit the Pulitzers again? Reporters are always broke!"

Review of chapter "Prom" from MarcusRowland
Glad at least a couple of the milestones in her life went without supervillain problems. Don't know the upcoming crossovers at all.
Comments from author:
Oh, you know one of them. Trust me on this.

Review of chapter "Prom" from Deadpan
I've been awaiting Andrew since he got mentions a few chapters ago. I remember the show fondly. I have no idea who Craig is or what he's from.
Comments from author:
Okay, Craig is an OC. He's not the other crossover. But Andrew is one.

Review of chapter "Prom" from Harry
Its nice to see Alex having some NORMAL time for a change, even with Mr. Pane spotting her in New York. And she got voted Prom Queen as well. Now, time to prepare for college and for some summer activities.
Comments from author:
Summer activities... I wonder what they might be?

Review of chapter "Off Weeks" from Zorgdub
Diane Castle:
:D :D Hanna wears military gear on ops. Where's a Terawatt t-shirt going to fit in there?

Not when she's undercover! Or if something happens when she wasn't prepared to ... no, scratch that, this is obviously never going to happen. The undercover one is good enough.
Comments from author:
Hanna undercover? That might happen. Soon.

Review of chapter "Off Weeks" from Zeviz
"Okay, she just really hoped Hanna didn’t have a Terawatt t-shirt she wore on ops. That would be totally embarrassing for Alex."

I got the following mental image:
Alex enters a conference room at the main SRI base and sees Hanna and Grover both wearing Terawatt t-shirts. She begins to complain, but at this time the door opens and Jack and Willow enter the room, also wearing these shirts. Just as she starts to say something, the door opens again, and team one enters ... with all of them wearing Terawatt shirts. While Alex is speechless, the scientists enter the room, also wearing the same shirts. When team two joins in, it's not really a surprise. Alex leaves the room to regain her composure, but sees that every soldier in the hallway is wearing a Terawatt shirt. She runs outside, and sees the shirt worn by every person on the base.

The scene shifts to Maggie Walsh, working in her lab, cackling over some sinister concoction she is holding in a test tube. As she turns around, we see that under her lab coat, she is also wearing a Terawatt t-shirt. At this point, Alex wakes up. :P

PS Unless the next chapter will be called "Off Months", it looks like the quiet days are about to end. My guess is that there will be an attack at the Pulitzer ceremony, and possibly also at Alex' graduation (with the intention of getting Terawatt to fly in to the rescue).
Comments from author:
:D :D :D The dreaded Alex nightmare. It's even canon, with two episodes turning out to be dreams, and Alex getting what amounted to a prophetic dream in the series finale.

Alex is going to find some stuff to do. That's all I'm saying.
