Review of chapter "10" from WebSpyder
Review:
Charlie as a potential is certainly an interesting thought. I would point out though, as Hester has obviously met Willow, she is easily the deadliest thing she has ever encountered, likely including even your incarnation of Miss McGee.
Comments from author:
Good point. It could actually be argued, though. Willow’s power is mystical, Charlie’s psionic. Who can access faster, who can bring the bigger guns to bear more readily? As depicted, Charlie could turn the sun nova with little effort or preparation; can Willow really match THAT level of destructiveness, especially so quickly? Alternatively, Charlie is an essentially normal person (in psychological terms ), albeit with a horrendous level of power, whereas Willow has in the past tapped into a vein of genuine evil, and she absolutely has the innate intellect to augment that evil with rampant imagination.

Good thing they’re both basically good people who don’t WANT to do any actual harm, isn’t it?

Review of chapter "13" from draconis
Review:
.
Fun and intriguing 'what ifs'. Good combination.

Really appreciated the seeming homage to the 'Oz' character, in bringing Jason into the story. I think he's even got Oz beat in the brevity sweepstakes with the single response in item 9.6...
["I don’t think you understand. Only girls can be...”
Anne did the hand-motion while saying the incantation.
Jason-as-Sonja looked up from the ever-present comic.
"Yo.”]

That scene, and his single "Yo" in revealing the magically complicated truth of the matter, created a really funny and enjoyable tableau. Writing talent was very much on display.


EDIT TO ADD:
Also, the segment that used Dawn's true "years physically in this world" age v. her apparent physiological age was good reasoning and definitely added to the story. The ending of that particular segment was also an obviously well thought-out surprise. Clearly a double-edged sword.
Comments from author:
Thank you. That particular segment was one of SRoni’s. The character as shown in his original source wasn’t QUITE so laconic (though more so at the beginning than in the latest version of the strip), but the brevity was accurately representative.

As for the Dawn segment: the reasoning was mine, but (again) that one was actually written by SRoni. It’s as if you’re deliberately favoring her over me! ;)

Happy you enjoyed the consolidated effort.

Review of chapter "13" from MarcusRowland
Review:
Really enjoyed this, especially the Veronica, Kendall, and Dawn parts - I suspect that Dawn will be one of the people who wants to bow out if she can't re-start her powers any other way. Unfortunately I don't know most of the other crossovers, but I think the ideas came over clearly enough.

If Kendall joins the training program at the same time as Veronica things might get interesting...
Comments from author:
I suspect Kendall might not get as far as she’s hoping, whether she encounters Veronica or not.

Yes, I worked in some rather obscure crossover material (especially the online comic strips). Still, this was done mostly for my own entertainment, and I hope the storyline held up overall.

Dawn … I honestly don’t know which way Dawn will go. (SRoni did that one.) Plus, since she’s the only one who WASN’T given a choice, will rescission even be possible for her? Be interesting to see …

Thanks for the feedback. Always appreciated.

Review of chapter "13" from DianeCastle
Review:
This is well done! Some of your crossovers are... unusual. Which I appreciate. (I think you may know how weird some of my crossovers have been.)

And when Wendell said "sample size" he should have said "sampling bias" because he ought to know how to build (or look up) a small-n one-sided confidence interval for P when there are no failures (yet) and you're assuming random sampling. (Wow, could a reader be any worse with the nitpicks? Sorry.)
Comments from author:
I’ve deeply enjoyed the multiple crossovers you continue to work into “the Secret Return of Alex Mack”. Plus, there was a certain chagrin when you introduced Charlene McGee; even though I wasn’t able to publish the entire story till this year (and not on TtH, its original target, till yesterday), I’d written the “Charlotte Young” segment over two years ago, and now I’d been scooped while I waited for SRoni to finish her last segments. Still, we’ve taken different directions with her, so I don’t feel like a copycat.

As far as the statistical terminology, I had Wendell say “sample size” because he knew he was addressing a lay audience. (As am I, in the story itself.) Still, I’ll take a look and assess whether some revision is in order.

All in all, thank you.

Review of chapter "7" from cmdruhura
Review:
The meeting between Kendall and Willow should be quite entertaining. Throw in Xander, Buffy and Giles and it will win an Oscar.

EDIT:
Actually I was thinking about how Charisma played both Kendall and Cordelia while Alyson played both Trina and Willow.
Comments from author:
One might suspect, yes, that Kendall hasn’t thoroughly considered the process of trying to con magic users. And, given the care with which (we can see) they’re planning out exactly how they’ll apply the process that has just become available to them … well, I don’t doubt that Kendall will give it her best shot, but the odds aren’t good for her.
