Review of chapter "Fifty Nine" from AlexanderCorvin
Review:
Hello again, I have a quick question which might pertain to this setting (the Builder concept) and perhaps future 'worlds' the group visits.

If a Builder were to scan something that wasn't exactly human, like say a Fury (an elemental spirit from the Codex Alera series that grants supernatural, but not magical, abilities to those it bonds with) or a Guardian Force (according to the in-game explanation, they're 'immense beings wielding otherworldly powers', in FF8), could they create them with their Builder powers, or create a Minion who has them already bonded/junctioned? Or could they be gained as pets/mounts as shown in the World of Warcraft/Warcrack part of the story?

I'm also curious as to the three week gap in posting. Your usually more consistent and I thought perhaps you were working on a new story (as you have several unfinished ones already). I can understand how writing comes and goes, and RL (real life) gets in the way. I was just curious what the reason was.

Thanks and keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Builders can scan lots of things. Depending on the complexity, they'll get different results or even not be able to get anything from it depending on their level. Scanning a Fury might work or it might not, it would depend on who they were scanning. Red or Elizabeth could likely scan any of them and get it to work. As for the rest, the Furies are more likely than a Guardian force.

Could they create them? Yes, would it take a group effort? Possibly. Could they create someone that's already bonded to a fury or a guardian force, perhaps. I'd have to look at each one a bit closer. I don't remember exactly how stuff works for Guardian spirits... they might be able to create a minion that's bonded only for the spirit to rip itself away... It might take them making both or making the guardian spirit first...

As for pets, maybe or maybe not.

As for the gap in posting, I have been working on a story on another site that sort of ties into this one and I got a little overly focused on the other story. I've also been enjoying my summer which cuts into my writing time. It's nice and sunny out and warm... did I mention warm? So yeah there's a gap in posting.

Review:
Always get a bit giddy when I see a new chapter added. We welcome Faith the ranks of the Builders. :D! So much Yay! from my end. :)

Thank you.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you're still enjoying the story. I figured it would be fun to see what she can do as a builder.

So whatever happened to Cordelia and Harmony?
Comments from author:
As you can plainly see from chapter forty four... okay... it's been a while since I checked in on them... or the other survivors... I'll see what I can do about that.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Eight" from WCSII
Review:
Pfffffffffft. "It started when..." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

*Gulps in breath*

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Edit: "I've never hit anyone that I wasn't aiming at."
That's a *snerk* and a *derp* Although, I feel like I should know this Skitters scenario that you've mentioned in that other story.

(Edit duex) *sigh* I hate having to google. ... lets see... Let's see, skitters and how to prepare them, how to make your own, where to find them, impact on society, impact on economy... next page... how to play skitters, what's your favorite snack... wiki on some board game, some sort of paperback novel for sell on amazon. Some douche TNT psuedo sci-fi series that was utterly uninteresting, and I never bothered to watch. ... other than the board game and the paperback novel... nope not seeing anything that'd tell me which "skitters" you were talking about.
Comments from author:
Ah, I'm sure you can figure it out... :)

Edit: Well it's not like that's the official name... :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from Difdi
Review:
> Rogue sighed, “I really hope you don’t smoke.”

You can usually spot an author who has a poor sense of smell (most often due to smoking) by things like this. Whether or not someone smokes is only a mystery to those with abnormally poor senses of smell.
Comments from author:
I can tell when someone smokes, unless they've recently showered and put on new clothes... and even that doesn't really help if they smoke inside. That said, she was just created and probably hadn't had the chance to smoke yet... so I stand by Rogue's statement as being reasonable.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Eight" from WCSII
Review:
Since I don't want to register to yet another fanfiction site (especially since I only read two active author's works) I'd thought that I'd post a few suggestions that fall under "jerkwad" suggestions here. In a nutshell, name tags. Descriptive name tags... like such and such character with specific relevant knowledge, their future selves from a specific direction in life (and a specific point in their life) and then start doing weird shit. Like themselves with a spell version of the ritual used to make everything happen. Or, if any of them think it, themselves as a free form RPG character (like that web comic I linked you a while back, where the main character gained the powers of such an RPG character) Frankly, you don't even need costumes. Just a name tag, and one or two objects to cause the spell to catch. There's just so much that one can do if one thinks creatively with it. Want Final Fantasy 'esk mana and health potions, grab some beakers and slap a name tag on someone as a FF potioneer that can make all of a specific variety(mana or health) that works in "this" world. Want to grab some FFX skill orbs, grab some plastic balls from the costume store and slap a name tag on them for the sort/kind you/they want. Want a real R2D2, or C3PO, grab a mannequin and the costume, and time turn the fucker. Don't know if that'll make them real or not, but worth an attempt to see if it works. (HELL, if it does then easy resurrection of James and Lilly)

Basically, as long as it isn't the god, a god, or some ethereal being... you should be able to, can, and just plain should go hog wild on this. The fact that no one ever has, has always irked me.
Comments from author:
No worries. :)
I've been thinking about what they would do with name tags and an item or two... If Buffy grabs that stupid noble dress again.. a name tag inside of it... maybe a watcher... or an immortal swords-girl. Raiding the accessories bins are going to help a lot I think. I was thinking about some RPG characters... Mana stones... FF things, are all good suggestions. R2D2... I can think of a way to make that work... make a duplicate... turn the duplicate off.. and have the original put the correct program in... :) as for resurrection of James and Lilly, they probably could do it by costumes. Then again...

I think there are plenty of things that they can do with the Halloween spell that people don't normally do. I'm looking forward to playing with at least some of them.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Eight" from WCSII
Review:
Huh, it's almost sad when regular commentators know enough about a writer's habits that they don't even bat an eye when said writer, known for being able to get whole chapters out it two to three days time... doesn't update in more than a week. Yes, yes, busy with the Harry jumps ("this") story; like I said, 'knows about a writer's habits'. Though I got to say, that two stories that you quickly got tired of after a month. (Just this summer) So I got to ask. Are you getting burned out on writing?
Comments from author:
Let's just go with summer makes writing a bit hard for me. The sun is shining and there are other things to do. I'm doing some brainstorming on the builder story on where I want it to go. That's complicated a bit because of how the Harry jumps around story factors into the builder story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Eight" from HappyWonKinobi
Review:
Here's an idea that I just got. I've been playing Darksiders (almost finished the first game, and it's absolutely awesome!), and I kinda want you to bring it into this story or another one.

Basic Premise of Darksiders: The Apocolypse has occurred, but without the destruction of the 7th and final seal (of those mentioned in the book of Revelation in the Bible) in an attempt to end the evil Demons by the Angels and thus the Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse would not be called. Thing is, it happened before the third kingdom, us Humans, were ready for the End Times fight, and so we got wiped out. fast forward a hundred years to when War, who was there during the Apocolypse, wakes up and faces his sham of a tribunal, which was orchestrated by those who govern him (the Charred Council), so that they would be able to deal with the threat to the balance between the three kingdoms but without the Justice of killing according to the rules being put aside for murder and vengeance (which the Bible says belongs to God). It's a wonderful and amazing hack 'n slash game that I've *almost* finished (haven't gotten to the final boss, who happens to be Abaddon, who was the Angel leading the attack against the Demons, but only because he was found by The Enemy and trapped into becoming The Destroyer) and I can't wait to see the ending! It's also pretty amazing how well done the game is and just the scenery itself as well! (It's a Post-Apocolypse scene, which I've seen you use pretty well!)

Hope to see another wonderful chapter soon!

HWK :)
Comments from author:
I looked at the wiki, it doesn't sound like something I'd ever play and I can't see the characters wanting to go there or willingly going there... if they had to unwillingly go there they would bring nukes and kill everything demon and angel alike.

Review:
Oh, nice! I see, you're crossing this with the genie series! Are you gonna merge the series, or is this just a temporary visit? Doesn't look like temporary, with Faith's upgrade...
Comments from author:
Hmm close... I'm crossing it with Hermione's game fic. It's consider it a merge.
