Review:
Great new chapter, keep up the awesome work. :) It's good to see a new update. :) I'll be looking forward to reading more. There just aren't enough mass-reality travel stories like this.
Comments from author:
One of the problems with them is if you cross a world to an alternate of the world... the names get annoying fast. :)

I'm glad that you enjoyed the chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from Sanabalis
Review:
I like it! Yeah, it gets a bit hard to track, sometimes, but that's normal for this kind of multi x-overs, with lots of characters. Easy to solve by reading slowly and with concentration. You are keeping the language light and easy to read, which helps a lot.

Btw, can't wait for them to get to Naruto-verse. Or Sekirei. Or world of warcraft. Or Lord of the Rings. Lots of places to visit and lots of evil to curb stomp. :)
Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Yeah, it gets a bit confusing at points but that's the nature of sprawling fics where people aren't constrained by having to pay actors. :) I mean seriously in a world with magic... I can't see them not at least looking at cloning or creating more heroes for when the demons, aliens or other countries come looking for your resources.

As for Naruto ... that could be fun. First I've heard of Sekirei but might be worth a look from what I've read on the wiki... Lord of the Rings could be amusing. :) There are a lot of places that they could visit.
I'm glad that you're enjoying the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from dawnkey
Review:
They should really screw with the wizarding world by asking to buy some earth animals for the moons ecosystem such as dragons and unicorns when they properly introduce themselves at the U.N. and when they are told they do not exist by the U.N. they should them and the news crews present show the event live the evidence that they do as it would really damage the wizarding or they could ask why all of the earths sentient species such as the centaurs the goblins, the giants and the merpeople are not present.
Comments from author:
I think that would cause the wizarding world a lot of hassle. I can see how that could be fun but at the same time it why alert the magicals that you're anything other than friendly aliens.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from DCG
Review:
Failing kinda hard. This is nothing but a big mess that's hard to understand. Looks like random shit happening mixed in with bad shit happening.

You have a flow chart some place? Or a list explaining what the hell is going on? Story has lots of chapters but zero hooks. There's no reason to keep reading this mess.
Comments from author:
You're welcome to walk away and read something else if you can't follow what's going on.

As for as bad stuff happening to them, yeah it's life.

A list explaining what is going on? As in a character list? Sure, is it published? Nope.

There are plenty of other people that continued reading, you're welcome to go find something more your style. I don't hold it against people.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from Swordchucks
Review:
Another amusing chapter. I think a more focused plot might be a good thing for this story... or it might not. It's hard to tell. Anyway, a slightly more focused plot would be good.
Comments from author:
It is what it is. I could stand to have things a little bit more focused.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from CageFire
Review:
This is a pretty awesome story so far. I really got into it. I wasn't crazy about some of the more recent stuff with all the wild sex and everything even though you didn't write any details. The way they were talking about it like it was nothing kinda put me off. Then again they talk about duplicating and experimenting on people like it's nothing so maybe they're just a little nuts. I should also keep in mind this is a semi-crack fic, so I shouldn't take it too seriously.

At any rate keep up the awesome work, and I'll be looking forward to reading more chapters and seeing where else they end up. :)

I just love fics where they travel to all sorts of different series' universes and picks things up to improve themselves or their knowledge. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of them. I think being a semi-crack fic might actually be something of a requirement, because when authors take it too seriously they get caught up with the characters being the oh so dreaded and horrible "overpowered". Seriously, all overpowered means is that it won't take too long to defeat any badguys in whatever reality they end up in, which when you have the entire multi-verse to explore is /not/ a bad thing. And even then like with the stargate verse it still took months to defeat the enemy even when they were totally outgunned just because of quantity and how spread out they were. It also helps that you have other goals besides defeating badguys, where you also want to find anything useful from a world and experiment on stuff.
Comments from author:
I wanted to imply that they're having fun but at the same time... too much description gets old fast.

I'm glad that you're enjoying the story.

As for being semi crack fic... I think when you start looking at the possibilities that you could get with the ability to jump realities... you would have endless land (depending on how things worked.) endless resources... things shift a bit to ideas, to concepts. It's an interesting story idea to explore but it shouldn't be taken overly seriously.

As for over powered characters, it changes depending on the story. A guy with a gun in a land with melee weapons is over powered... until his ammo runs out... then he's not. A guy with a gun is underpowered in a world where bullets can't hurt anything... no matter how much ammo he has.

As for exploring and stargate, it's going to take them a long time to deal with the go'auld because there are a lot of them.

Having goals other than defeating people and 'winning' is nice. It's not always about winning, it's about winning in such a way that you don't make more enemies than you have to. :)

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from JamesBrown
Review:
if they want to spread magic throughout the Muggles
and still screw with the heads of the wizards,
they might want to go less with 'ET' and more with
a Midsummer's night dream.
I mean, they are immortal,not really malicious but insanely powerful
*and a bit insane*anddd don't really care about clothes.
and they are doing this pretty much just to mess with the mortals.
if that doesn't pretty much match the description of the elves
of the Seelie Court, I don't know what does.
and when they get ready to leave, They could even do
Puck's apology speech on worldwide television. :)
Comments from author:
It's true they're more like Seelie court than they are ET...

I can see them working that angle when they start giving people powers.

Puck's apology speech would be amusing.

Faith said, "If we have offended... never mind I don't care."

Or not... :)

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from Riniko
Review:
Really enjoying your story it is quite funny, while staying fresh with new ideas. As to the Dementors, I was hoping that since they knew that trying to copy them killed them that they would go ahead and start zapping all the rest, they are evil creatures. Dumbledore will be confused with Voldemort gone and neither Harry nor Neville being marked. Maybe they should look into finding out what makes the magicals magical and releasing this gene into the regular world. The magicals will find it hard to keep themselves hidden with more and more muggleborn witches and wizards showing up and outnumbering the pureblood so greatly.
Comments from author:
Thanks, I'm trying to keep it interesting. As for the dementors, they basically decided that they weren't going to screw with the wizards too much. As for dementors... they'll likely deal with them fairly soon. They wanted to wait for the trails and for some time to pass to disconnect them in people's mind from the aliens... :)

As for finding out what makes the magicals magic... that could be interesting and potentially profitable.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirty Three" from AnFan
Review:
Fun stuff, I really like your imagination. You've got a good way of making the characters come to life. That is one of the hardest things to find out here on the web, good character interaction and interesting plot. You've got them both down well in this story.

Xander isn't thinking things through here. All the Scoobie gang are immortal now. Either Death is going to totally ignore them, hence not care if dead souls make it back into life (sort of like a portal manager). Or Death is going to be upset in some way with their existence, and will have a problem with souls crossing back over again (prison guard? OCD entity that has to keep their pees out of their potatoes?). Odds are on the former, given the existence of dementors. Their 'eating' of souls would seem to be an encroachment into Deaths realm of influence. Though the latter isn't ruled out if Death doesn't care about any individual souls. Then Death would be angry at ghosts because they are on the wrong side of the veil. Then again, the Veil Arch and the Hollows may just be creations of powerful magic users and there is no Death (only Zuul! *clears throat* sorry, that was Dana, not Death :)

I also like your creativity with Item Worlds. You've done a great job of keeping that from going stale with the ideas you've come up with.

The story is a lot of fun to read! Can't wait to see what comes up next.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that I can make them come alive.

Xander is just worried that more bad things will happen but you're right. They're immortal so death either doesn't care what they do or they're already on his crap list. :)

I like messing with the item worlds because every item should have a different flavor especially when they come from different worlds.

I'm glad that you're enjoying the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AnFan
Review:
Just had a thought. There is a problem with copying Fawkes. Or at least with your statement in your latest chapter of keeping him away from Dumbledore by swapping out his mind. And that is, if Fawkes' powers are due to his being a Light creature, then removing his 'mind' would impact his powers. Now, if it is not true than the powers have nothing to do with any alignment and simply fall within human assumptions of such.

Now the only real power that a phoenix has that would be impacted by this at first glance would be the singing that would bring cheer to good people and cause evil people pain.

hmm, I'm not sure if my epiphany has merit :( Though, if there is no tie in to behavior with the powers of a phoenix, then are they 'truly' a Light creature? Or is it simply coincidence and having one as a familiar has no significance at all?

Maybe that is why there aren't more stories with Fawkes as being an important feature?

Oh well, I'll still send this to you in case it sparks any ideas. BTW, w/o an email address I had to hunt for a chapter I hadn't reviewed yet. :(



Edit: Stopped the review too soon:

I guess the question is what is removed with the mind. Would the behavior of Fawkes be the same w/o his experiences? Would it be like a young chick new to being a phoenix? Would it destroy the phoenix to have it's behavioral center removed since they are a Light creature? Does a phoenix's powers come with experience and age, or are they instinctive?

Also, how does a familiar bond work? Would the fact that there are now two Fawkes' mean that one of them is no longer bound to Dumbledore? If they took the bound familiar and left the copy or the bond went with the copy, what would that mean to the other one? Can a wizard have more than one familiar bond? Is there even a bond for a creature as intelligent as Fawkes or Hedwig (or other supposed familiars)?

Oh, and what happens if you merge a Light and a Dark creature? Though, why anyone would want to is another question. When Faith was splitting the Dementor did it provide any hint of a creature that wasn't Dark?

Lots of questions for you :D Hope you like them.

One other thing I wanted to mention is that there does seem to be one Higher Power in the HP verse. That is Death. Or at least there are tales of that particular power. Faith messing with the Elder Wand might let them know first hand if there is a personification of Death running around. They could also decide to investigate the three brothers with their time machine and see if they created the objects. Though this doesn't prove anything, only move the possible power of the Higher Being into more of a muse type of being.

.
Comments from author:
I'm going to call their personality light side. Though you're probably right about the singing, an evil person probably couldn't make it work. (or at least not well.)

As for the e-mail address bit I fixed it so that people can message me.

I'd assume a bit of both for the powers, experience and instinct... but considering they'll be copying his knowledge and then creating a base off of that...

As far as familiars ... I call them pets. No one actually mentioned a bond even in the case of Fawkes, as far as I can tell from the books that's a fan fiction idea... they're just pets, even Fawkes... though I'd consider him more of a companion and less a pet... but I don't think there is a mystical connection there.

It would depend on what world you're combining things and how much you've tried to pull the evil out... plus the whims of fate... ie me and what's funny or what works for the story. Either boom... or you get a more neutral creature.

As for the dementor, no... it died before she managed to split off a less evil version. If she had been copying... and splitting and copying and splitting... it might have been possible... but dementors have no (or almost no) redeeming qualities. It would have been a very very tough and long job... the best they would have gotten was to get the power clean... maybe.

It's true there might be a personification of death around. :) Then again it might just be a fable. :) time travel back in time could also show how things were created. They might look at doing something like that, then again they might not. :) Knowing how to make the invisibility cloak would be a perk for them. Knowing how to make elder wands might be a perk or maybe the elder wand was just a one off creation.

As for having more than one pet, I don't see why not other than you have to take care of them.

Review of chapter "Thirty Two" from Doodle
Review:
Excellent chapter. 2,000/10


It'd be amusing if when eventually some of the magical nations leaders and the International Confederation(?) of Wizards confronts them about why their ignoring them for them to explain that they were a failed past experiment. Maybe have them come up with a 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' type or a 'Bewitched' type origin, with the Empire of Dawn being the True Witches/Magicals and the majority of the Earth magicals being pale Mortal copies.
Comments from author:
I don't think such a confrontation would end well for the wizarding world governments. That said, I'm not sure they would realize that they're magic users for a while. Unless they don't believe the mad science claims... which they might not.

As for letting the wizarding world believe that they're rejects... while amusing isn't nearly as much fun as just ignoring them or telling them that they don't acknowledge their authority.
