Review of chapter "King Xander XXIII" from DieselDriver
Review:
Oh man! I hate it when I reach the end (so far) of such a good story. That means that I have to find something else to read for the time being. I sure hope to see more soon.

Review of chapter "Brief Update and Updated Brief" from DieselDriver
Review:
Battleships are a marvelously big BIG stick. Iowa class are the best. I was never in the navy but I worked on/with them after I got out of the Chair Force, er, Air Farce, er, Air Force. There's a really good description of being the target of the Iowa in Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising" when the U. S. forces are re-taking Iceland. They fired one round from a 16" gun for ranging then after making windage corrections, the remaining 8 as a broadside and the guys thought they'd blown up until the bullets arrived. I got to see some video of a prototype bullet which had a auxiliary rocket motor and a laser guidance system, which increased the range to well over 100 miles from the 20-25 they have with normal bullets. They get fired, the rocket motor ignites at the top of the arc and off it goes with it's guidance system looking for the correct laser illumination, the illuminator carried and used by a forward controller or an aircraft way up in the stratosphere. Find the laser light it homes in and down it goes. All 2,000 pounds of it. Right on target. I also saw plans to remove the rearmost turret and replace it with a set of SAM launchers and the whole area formerly holding the turret filled with SAM's and then pairing it with an AEGIS cruiser. Talk about Fleet defense, that would be a marvelous steel umbrella.

So let me guess, the soldier wasn't King Leonidies.

Review of chapter "KX 17 Telecommunication" from DieselDriver
Review:
Giles' question about Xanders' Halloween character is a good one. I'm not coming up with a name except maybe Patton on that one.

Review of chapter "King Xander XV" from DieselDriver
Review:
Hiding in a busy movie theater seems like such a good idea that I think it's probably the first place terrorists or other baddies would look for an escaping good guy who just needs some time for the right people to get going on the rescue.

Review of chapter "King Xander XIV" from DieselDriver
Review:
Sometimes Xander reminds me of my littlest dog. I have no papers and he's a foundling so I have no real idea but he looks so much like the pictures of a Jack Russell Terrier that I called him Jack from the day I found him on the road. Xander is much like him in that he jumps right in and is enthusiastic with people he just met and also fails to follow convention much. Jack is like that. Xander, being human, of course has a lot more to him than that. I'd be really happy to have a friend like Xander.

Review of chapter "Yorking It Up" from DieselDriver
Review:
"a Wiener Republic" I don't know if you meant this or if it was a typo but the Weimar Republic really was a Weiner Republic. Boy, did they ever get it wrong, which gave rise to the Nazi's and Hitler.

Review of chapter "Ever More Convoluted!" from DieselDriver
Review:
This is turning into one of the best stories I've read so far on this site. Way different than what I expected and very very well written. I'm sure glad I found it.

Review of chapter "King Xander V" from DieselDriver
Review:
I can just see Faith and JB getting along reeeeaaaaallly well... especially after she holds him up by the shirt at arm's length and gives him the "what for".

On the other hand, I was thinking it would have been really funny if the person sent over had been named Hermione or maybe Harry or even Ronald.

Review of chapter "King Xander IV" from DieselDriver
Review:
I had an idea about how to defeat gerrymandering. Pass a law/constitutional amendment that all political districts shall be constructed so as to include maximum interior space for minimum possible perimeter while maintaining an approximately equal population within each one.

I love that line about Europe. "They'll have to get their own King, I'm to busy." Reminded me for some reason of "Girl Genius". Hmm. Xander marries Agatha. Wowee that would be cool to read.

Review of chapter "King Xander II" from DieselDriver
Review:
I can't imagine how BORING being the King would be. All those stupid ceremonies and the stupid clothes. Bleh! I'd abdicate as soon as I could foist it off on someone who wanted to be King. Maybe. On the other hand I bet he has the best net connection ever. Wouldn't have any trouble finding people to play Everquest together.

Review of chapter "King Xander XXIII" from fayannr
Review:
I just found this story and it is great! I hope you will continue it in the future. I would like to see Kinsey get his and to see how King Xander reacts when he finds out about the wizarding world. I don't think he will be happy with a bunch of adults relying on a teen to save them.
