Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from Olympus
Review:
This was an amazing story - an unconventional take on the whole thing, but I loved it! The characters were the same lovable ones we all know and even some of the ones I didn't know I loved as well. And plus, Tara and Willow make any story automatically awesome. Beautifully written, at times romantic and emotional, with some laugh out loud moments and topped off with just enough action to be kick-ass.

Wonderful story. Thank you for writing this. It's made my day.

Review:
GREAT story. You perfectly captured the characters' voices and mannerisms, included a pantload of Trek references for the ubergeeks like me, and achieved my OTP in the end. Bravo.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from lucyferr
Review:
"Whenever one gives offense and then apologizes, the other says either 'That's okaaaay,' or," (in an exaggerated eastern North American accent), "'Fuggedaboudit!.' Now, if the offense is 'okaaaay,' doesn't that mean that it was not an offense and there was no need for an apology in the first place? And if the one is supposed to 'forget about it,' would not that lead to a probable recurrence of the offense?"
Willow was set to automatically debate the Andorian when the truth of what he said sank it. He had a point, there.
"It has to do with the general imprecision that humans, well, many humanoids have, with language," Kolrami said, in Lecture Mode even at the dinner table. "They inadvertently give offense to one another so often that they need to keep their apologies as simplified as possible. Any formalized asking of forgiveness would take so long and have to performed so often, they would never get anything else done."

Love both the Q & A!

"'Death before dishonor' sounds great in the Academy, but it's a little less inspiring when you have to write a letter to someone's mother and father."

well said

"May your decimals never drop."

good one

Review of chapter "Chapter 1" from lucyferr
Review:
"So, how did the coup go in my absence? Take over the ship yet?"
"The revolution was successful. All political prisoners were released, and I've just finished redecorating your ready room."
"You didn't throw out my original pressing of 'Hey, Jude', did you?"
"Of course not." Beat. "I'm using it for a drinks coaster."

lol

"Captain Murdock and Commander DaKar've told me nothing except you're a sweetie," she blurted out before she could stop herself. The other two men exchanged looks that hovered somewhere between mortification and bemusement, just stopping short of mouthing A sweetie? to each other.

lol

"You going to drink that?" he inquired casually, indicating the glass on the desk next to the captain.
By way of answer, Murdock reached out, snagged the bottle, unstoppered it, picked up the glass and with a precise, delicate movement, poured the drink back into the bottle. He put the stopper back in, slid bottle and glass back over to Devereux, and said in a most pleasant tone, "Some other time, perhaps."

good one!

Her face was blackened and bloody from some flying debris and smoke, her red hair was slightly charred, and her outdated uniform, now being stripped off by medtechs, was grimy.
She's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, Tara thought.

awwww....
Comments from author:
Glad you like it! I had high hopes of being to insinuate Willow and Tara into the Trek universe.

I'm working on the sequel, which is also on this board. It's been a slow process, but I'm getting there.

Thanks again!

Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from RebeccaAshling
Review:
I first read this story on "Through The Looking Glass" and was pleased to find it on "Twisting The Hellmouth" 'cause this means I can review it. I'm not overfond of the "Star Trek" franchise, mainly because the characters are either bland or unappealing. However, I rather liked your OCs and could quite happily read a non-crossover ST fic with just them in it. And ├╝bersplicing Willow and Tara into the mix was an absolute joy to read. Thanks.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much. I have been working (sporadically :-T ) on the sequel to this story.

I appreciate the fact that you like the non-Buffyverse characters in the story. That really gives me serious egoboo.

Thanks again, and have a nice day!

Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from (Recent Donor)ElessarNett
Review:
I have to say, I truly, very much enjoyed this story - it is definitely one of the top stories on the site, in my opinion, and definitely the best of the Star Trek crossovers.

You have, successfully, captured the quintessential elements of the characters of Willow and Tara, reproducing their characters completely on a scale I believe most couldn't possibly achieve (including myself) while yet integrating them so seamlessly into another universe. The successful combination of two of my oldest and greatest joys - Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (my two favorite characters from the latter, no less; aside - this tells you how young I am for Buffy to be "one of my oldest joys" :) ) - brings a warm feeling to my heart.

Thank you for writing and sharing this story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from (Recent Donor)dreamfall
Review:
woah, woah, wait--the captain is Bully Hayes??? okay, that was unexpected. Not least because I didn't think anybody else actually saw that movie... Right, continuing to read.
Comments from author:
Hunh, I didn't think anybody else remembered that movie either. Well, he's not *exactly* Bully Hayes -- I just borrowed a few names here and there. Serial numbers rubbed off. The usual.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Prologue" from (Past Donor)Ponder
Review:
I really love this story; it's been on my rec list for a while.

I just noticed you've got a problem with its formatting, however. I recently had to lower my screen resolution and bump up my font size to take care of an unrelated problem on a different website. And then my aging eyes thanked me while visiting other websites, so I kept it that way. :)

You've got hard line breaks in the middle of every paragraph in your story. When I made the text bigger and the overall screen smaller, the problem really jumped out, making your story an almost completely unreadable mismash of alternating long and short lines. :( The best way to fix this is to reformat your paragraphs so you have exactly two line breaks at the end of each one. One line break to end the paragraph, plus one more to make the visible blank line. Let the reader's web browser handle the line wrapping.

I'm probably not the only reader who browses with similar settings. To see what I'm seeing, open up the story in any browser, and shrink your browser window's horizontal size until it's less than the width of your story's lines.

Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from ghostwhowalks
Review:
I just finished reading this and let me just say "It was great!" This was a well written and well researched story with everything working just right. There are so many good things to say that I don't know where to start. I am eagerly awaiting each new chapter of the sequel.

Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from Waterfall
Review:
Dammit, you made me cry! Brought tears in my eyes a couple of times too, but it was the crayon comment that did it... Are you going to make more of these? I hope so, because I'm intensely curious about the whole Ozymandias thing.

The fic is very well written, your ideas are extraordinary, and a not-dead Tara is always a huge plus! I'm looking forwards to reading more from you, even though I'm not really interested in the whole StarTrek thing. Any author who can explain a more or less unknown (for the reader) fandom without distracting from the story itself is a good author.

Shade and sweet inspiration,
Waterfall

Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from (Past Donor)JoeHundredaire
Review:
Good story, just one question. Is Captain Murdock from the books or something? If you explained it, I must have missed it, but I feel like I'm a little short here; like this whole business should be part of something bigger than I'm missing.
Comments from author:
As I said in my original disclaimer (don't sweat it, it's small print :)) all the characters in this story, besides those of Willow, Tara, Faith, Jonathan, Warren and Gunn, of course, are all my creations (or, in the case of Jodell DaKar, the creation of a friend of mine, who gave me his permission). My friends and I think the Trek universe is bigger than Kirk, Picard, Sisko, et.al...they just get the good press. :)

My friends and I have this whole universe based on Trek worked out, the labor of years, back when had no lives. Murdock's story...well, suffice it to say, it's a long one. Heh.

Thanks for the feedback!

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from SecondSilk
Review:
Brilliant chapter. I, too, thought of Shelley's Ozymandias, but I can't think what it might mean. Although I have worked out Murdock's relationship with DaKar, now (non trekkie, here). I look forward to your exploration of the ripple effects of Willow's actions.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from BrendanM
Review:
Nice twist. I assume that this is the same Ozymandias that appears in the Percy Shelley poem?

I'll be interested to see where this goes.

Keep up the good work.
