Review of chapter "Epilogue" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
I'd have to read it again, but I think you closed this out beautifully. I hope Grandma Nasha does come back for the endgame and stays for the peace and the new Alliance.

You gonna get back to "Battlefront"? Cuz we need more of the Redrock Rangers in this before the end...
Comments from author:
The Rangers will come back if I can think of something interesting and different to do with them - I basically ran out of ideas . In real life, battles tend to look alike; but in a story that gets boring after a while. I'll give it some thought.

Thanks for your reviews and your support.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from HMaxMarius
Review:
"And nobody ever seen her again," the little girl said to her friends. "The grownups said she got killed fighting the monsters. But my sister says she saw in a dream that she's not really all the way gone. She says if the monsters ever come again... Grandma Nasha will come Back."

*sniffles and cheers*

Grandma Nasha's got that 'Once and Future King' thing going now! =D

Thanks for giving this one a proper send-off and wrap up Rich!!!
Comments from author:
Yes, she does, doesn't she ? She's that kind of character.

Thanks for the kind words, and for your support.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Harry
Review:
Black Widow was a superb series Rich. And I am happy to say that I offered my own little part to it, but mainly I enjoyed reading and reviewing it. And who knows: Maybe Dru is right and we WILL see Natasha again someday! With a light finally starting to show at the end of the tunnel for Ragnarok, I would love for Natasha to show up just when things are looking their worst, to rally the forces of light in the battle. But overall, I have enjoyed Black Widow, and will be sorry to see it end, but all good things must end at one point or another.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much.

Your little part turned out to be somewhat important, and I'm grateful for it.

I deliberately left an opening for a return, but right now I'm not planning one. Being who and what she was, Natasha was going to fight to the death as she had before - as I said in the story, that's what she's FOR.
I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for the review(s).

Review of chapter "The End of the Search...Part 2" from HMaxMarius
Review:
*wipes away tear*

Not bad for a character who was supposed to be a one-off of a 'what's Willow doing' chapter =D


So... does Penelope keep the Widows together as a combat team?
Comments from author:
I've had the same thought; Natasha wasn't supposed to be a character at all, and she just took over (which was always kind of her style when you think about it). To be honest, I haven't decided what's going to happen to the Widows now - but I'm sure they'll tell me when they decide.

Review of chapter "The End of the Search...Part 2" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Well written; the Khan of Clan Wolf has definitely lived up to her reputation, and in the end she died well, in the best traditions of the Clan.

And now Millicent, I guess, should take command of the Black Widows...she may not be of the Clan, but as a Slayer she has more than proved her mettle and her skill as a warrior, and thus I presume she would be welcome in the Clan.

This will be over soon, and the warriors, the soldiers, the operators and the Slayers of the Black Widow Company will be long overdue some rest and respite. As one Marine said at the end of "Full Metal Jacket", "We have nailed our names in the pages of history enough for one day."
Comments from author:
Millicnt certainly has absorbed the lessons of her teachers. Whether she's qualified to command is another question.

Review of chapter "The End of the Search...Part 2" from Harry
Review:
Natasha has done her part to aid the battle that has been going on. I also suspected that she would not make it to the end, from what the Mage said, and from what we have seen over time. She has been a GREAT character Rich, and she should get a GREAT salute/ceremony to honor her work and show her the respect that she has earned from all that have had the privilege to work with her.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much. When I first started this, I had some reservations; I wasn't sure that I could handle her well, and I'm still not sure if I have. But it's nice to know that she was appreciated.

Review:
Time to see who is the best: Natasha, or this creature of the night. And may the best person win.

Review of chapter "Searchers...Pt.4" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Damn, now what?

Good action sequence here, looks like Natasha has the bad boys on the run.

And you left us guessing as to just what is lurking behind that face on that shadow creature...good scary moment there.

And of course Airwolf is on the scene and looking to kick ass and take names. With a pair of 7.62mm miniguns and a pair of Taim and Bak turbolaser cannons, the Lady might just get the job done; what do you think?

Review of chapter "Searchers...Pt. 3" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
A servant of shadows...striking from shadows...hey, isn't Gojira out operating in that area somewhere?

Someone needs to apprise Comnand of the situation and have a flight of Mark VII Vipers and TIE/d's to incinerate this bastard...

Review of chapter "Searchers...pt. 2" from ecsnorway
Review:
Heh, enjoying this so far. :) "A super-powered helicopter with science-fiction weapons"... do I smell an Airwolf crossover in the making?
Comments from author:
I'm glad you like it.

Harry introduced Airwolf into the Battlefront story, and offered to let me borrow her for a bit; Faith needs transportation. Of course, this is mostly the Widow's story, but the Lady and the Pack will be playing a role.

Review:
Looks like things are getting dicey if Faith called O'Neill and requested Airwolf and the Pack! And from the looks of things, that was the RIGHT CALL! *WOLFPACK IN THE HOUSE!!!!!!*

Review of chapter "Searchers...pt. 2" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Faith and Lydia get to ride on a Mark II Airwolf with a Wolfpack team. Harry should be pleased.

And the children of the Father of Serpents rise. What destruction are they capable of wreaking? And will Homeworld Security Command be up to the challenge, or will planetary evacuation protocols be enacted?

All eyes now turn to the Black Widow as she begins her solo mission, and to the descendent of Dr Indiana Jones, who now is making her way someplace where she can hand off the Staff to others who can better protect it.

Thanks for the review. The major players are all gathering, and the collision should come soon.

Review of chapter "Searchers...Pt. 1" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Aha....good place to end this one. And why, pray tell, should the Great Serpent Ygg be feared any more than the First Evil?

Time to do like Lydia and make with the researchy...

Oh yes, I had nearly forgotten; Happy New Year and Wilkommen auf 2014, mein freund.

Edit: Ran a search on your Great Serpent Ygg, and all I come up with is references to the Great Serpent Niđhöggr and the World Tree Yggdrasil. Might that have been your intent, to hint at Norse mythology?
Comments from author:
Interesting coincidence, if it is one. Ygg is a variant spelling (which I made up) for Yig, the Father of Serpents in Lovecraft's and Howard's stories. He was the patron Deity of the snake-men, and was also worshiped in Stygia under the name of Set. Stygia was an ancestor of ancient Egypt, and according to Howard MAY have been founded by "pre-human" survivors from Lemuria, which sank into the sea in the Great Cataclysm. (and probably-not-so-coincidentally, Williamson's 'Darker than You Think" suggests a link between his witch-men and the founders of Egypt, and Carter's Thongor fights "Dragon Kings" in a pre-cataclysmic Lemuria).

Seriously, I didn't make this stuff up. Other people did, and I just tied it all together.
