Review of chapter "Chapter Three: Jurisdiction" from GuesssWho
Review:
I LOVE these two.

To be honest, I think that it was the threat of involving Superman that did it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty: Epilogue" from peachy
Review:
"It's always been unclear why Krypton gave up early explorations (and probably colonial expansion), to become a world where space travel was forbidden." There's actually an amazing fic that addresses this here (http://users.livejournal.com/__marcelo/73731.html).

As for the fic, this was a great, fun read. I'm such a nerd that I knew EVERY SINGLE REFERENCE, so I kept reading hoping to see more. Nice job.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eighteen: D is for Doomsday" from GreenDragon
Review:
"Did I ever tell you my theory"

I won't spoil it for you here, but here's a hint: what myth involves a sickle and the Earth Mother Gaea? And what does that imply about the nature of Slayers and their connection to the Scythe?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I could be totally off base here, but is this a veiled reference to Piers Anthony's "Incarnations of Immortality" series? Still making my way through your stories... great fun, so far!!
Comments from author:
Nope, a myth predating anything good old Piers wrote by several thousand years. Just consult any source on Greek mythology, and look up "Gaea", "Cronos", "Ouranos" and "sickle".

Yes, I'm saying it's actually *that* stone sickle.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty: Epilogue" from (Past Donor)MetropolisRising
Review:
"Fantastic!" as 9 says....said based on absorption of the time vortex. I'll give it to you, you've managed to combine my favorite parts of all those cannons(i.e. the most iconic, and no this isn't a time for a "best Dr. debate") into a seamless, fantastic, conglomeration of parts. Retconning people and playing around with them was done exceedingly well. Only complaint was no Xander, but you made up for that with that Illyria/Fred ressurection. The convienent but still seemingly plausible merging of Smallville and Superman Returns was really really nice too. That could be it's own fic for crying out loud! Plus the whole Chloe/Lois thing. I hate gushing but I really enjoyed the constant nods and winks to all of the stuff I've loved for the past 20 years. Thanks for this.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty: Epilogue" from JasonBarnett
Review:
Interesting twist about the Doctor knowing the timelines fictional. But should he really realize that?

Because you didn't make any mention of the Smallville Clark Kent being an outsider to the timeline, so if he's native then a fictional Superman should be just as impossible as a real Superman predating Clark.
Comments from author:
It would appear that Rose's memory is being rewritten with each reboot, but the Doctor's is not. Why might that be? It might have something to do with Time Lord sensitivity to time and ability to resist changes to their own personal past, or something else might be going on.

Anyway, it's not that the entire timeline is fictional; it's just that in the Doctor's subjective timeline, whenever he's visited the 20th and early 21st, he's landed at a point in the reboot cycle when Superman and his compatriots were fictional, although the planet Krypton and its doom were not. He knew there was some meddling going on in time, mostly in the States, from the residual ripples of each change, but not the exact nature of the meddling.

Hint: Remember from Draft Picks that it's the Powers That Be and similar entities calling the shots on Earth, but their province may be rather, well, provincial. While the Doctor has in the past been the agent, willing or not, for a higher being known as the White Guardian...

This series could be very fun with all the crossovers, I just wish your chapters were longer.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four: Family Matters" from CPTSkip
Review:
Wow! I am so totally impressed with your entire series. I love the logical, if twisted, way you tie everything together. I look forward to more of your brilliant series with much anticipation.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four: Family Matters" from JasonBarnett
Review:
How stupid. They couldn't just take his stuff, nope they're going to give him access to stuff that he can use to break himself out. And the people who ran the Initiative don't say anything about it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four: Family Matters" from grd
Review:
Another bloody ingrate. Please humilate him and any government crony that believes the same thing. Paranoid bigots. Superman should have let Luthor win after all perhaps thenthe population of ignorant humans would be diminished.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three: Jurisdiction" from Odjn
Review:
I really liked Draft Picks, and this is turning out to be so much better.

One thing, though, at the end of the book, and I'm guessing the series too, they aren't sent to a hell dimension. Door opens the door to the sun, and that's where they end up, along with Islington.

Unless W&H can turn back time, they'd still be ash.
Comments from author:
Well, really Door just says she sent them a long way away, in my copy of the book. Even if I'm wrong, if mortal Anya and Willow can perform a time fishing spell to retrieve Anya's amulet, and get Vamp Willow out of the past, then Wolfram & Hart can do the same and actually get what they're looking for - namely, two experienced employees beholden to them. Or pull something similar to what they did with Darla - she was ash, too, eh?

Review of chapter "Chapter Three: Jurisdiction" from CindyB
Review:
Hehehe. i can't wait to see Buffy & Big Blue interact. You should leave Angel in LA. It could be really interesting seeing Buffy fall for a Brooding Good Guy.
