Review of chapter "Once a Ranger… (Faith/Kira Ford)" from laoshi
Review:
Making an African American the black Ranger does seem vaguely racist. Did you ever see the spoof Megabot with Fran Kranz?

They go one further there and have an Asian actor playing the Yellow Ranger.

My knowledge of the powers rangers is really bad so i have no clue who most of these people are.

Embarrassing Faith was fun though.
Comments from author:
I love messing with Faith. :)

Review of chapter "Seaick Soul (Dawn/Gosei)" from Vld
Review:
Somehow, i really couldn't care less how Saban treated the goddamned angel-themed Sentai. The only time the Goseigers got to really shine... they only did because they were teaming up with their Sentai kohais... i mean, i watched two episodes of Goseiger because i had seen the "Goseiger x Gokaiger" movie and loved the interaction between Luka and her yellow Gosei counterpart and thought maybe it would be cool... but they're all so lacking a real personnality (especially Arata... and i'm so ashamed of myself for remembering his name) that i couldn't stand more than that.

I'm really a lot more worried about what Saban's gonna do with Gokaiger... and really not looking forward to watching it. I mean, the Gokaigers may be good, but they all are badasses... okay, only three of them are... and somehow i doubt their american counterparts will be anything else than boy-scouts (or girl-scouts in the girls' case) so yeah, pretty worried.
Still, should Saban pull it off correctly, the only one from the Council i see as best to join them would be Faith. She would really work well as Gokai Black, and since there isn't one yet... i mean, she's got Marvelous's badassness, Joe's overwhelming's skill, and Luka's fiery temper... and Luka-like quips with Faith-mouth? Dirty and highly humorous. And she has power in spades so she would be even more of a powered fighter than Gai is.
Comments from author:
Note that the story mentions that Faith and Satsu are both already rangers at this point, hence Dawn pondering the potential benefits of handing Vi a morpher. :)

Review of chapter "A Fiery New Flavor (Satsu/Mia Watanabe)" from fandomlver
Review:
AWESOME. I love it. I hope you can come up with more, but if you can't, this was brilliant. Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
It's at least one puzzle piece in a greater universe. I'm not sure if I'll want to try and rewrite the rest of the PRSS episodes to include Satsu or something, but I do know that Saban isn't touching on "Shinkenger vs Goseiger" and so there's a canon crossover between Satsu's team and Dawn's that I could adapt the plot of.

Review of chapter "A Fiery New Flavor (Satsu/Mia Watanabe)" from laoshi
Review:
I like Satsu's completely deserved sense of entitlement here. When you write vassals in my head I'm hearing minions. This fic is a great refutation of that Tom Cruise in the last samurai the white guy will turn out to be better at the ancient Japanese arts than the Japanese and they'll put him in charge stick. Please tell me you're planning on having Satsu throwing her weight around in future chapters.
Comments from author:
They are exactly minions. In Shinkenger, it's literally five houses that each donate their eldest to the fight against evil, with the Red Ranger being the 'Lord' that the four others serve under. It causes major problems when they find out that they've essentially been serving an impostor, which this story is the opening salvo of.

Review of chapter "Seaick Soul (Dawn/Gosei)" from laoshi
Review:
I haven't watched power rangers in years so most of the back story is lost on me but it didn't take away one iota from my enjoyment of the story. Your characterization of Dawn is pitch perfect as always and I can't wait to see her continue to kick ass in future installments. I really really intend to get back into reviewing your work on a regular basis this time. i was very sorry to see that I missed the donation drive for the latest round of artwork for Blue Belle are you planning to do anything like that again? I'd be more than happy to donate in the future.
Comments from author:
If I do ask for donations, it will likely be for non-Lexi artists and so it'll just be for the enjoyment of seeing new art as opposed to donating in hopes of getting a free print out of things or the like.

Review of chapter "Seaick Soul (Dawn/Gosei)" from AllenPitt
Review:
I'm sure Buffy will be completely understanding about it all. This kind of thing happens all the time when one goes to a mall. Totally not Vi's fault!

Review of chapter "Seaick Soul (Dawn/Gosei)" from Aenea
Review:
Lol, for some reason I'm reminded of Innortal's Ranma timeloops where a bored Ranma gave zords to teenagers with no over riding goal....they conquered New Zealand.
Comments from author:
Who'd want New Zealand? I mean, except for the penguins, there's not much there to recommend it...

Review of chapter "Seaick Soul (Dawn/Gosei)" from BoosterBronze
Review:
....I want to like Megaforce...hell...I like Jake, Gia, Noah (at times..), Mr. Burley, and very occasionally have not cringed at Princess Shayla's little sister..err, I mean Emma.

Hell, I actually like Tensou..

But Gosei........I never thought I'd yearn for Andrew Hartford's return, but even he was more coherent and generally helpful than Gosei. Hell, Demetria was a better mentor than Gosei.

So I've gotta love this one, you capture Gosei's random mad-libs esque manner perfectly, and have him actually, at least figuritively, called out on the rug a bit by a cast member, which just makes me a tad bit giddy. Gotta say I love how Dawn almost immeaditely sets about showing what an utter waste he is by fixing the 'broken beyond repair' Green Morpher.

I'd say I hope to see more, but you've marked this one as complete, so eh, it's fun. Hope you getting more plotbunnies for it in the future. But, all the same, very nicely done.

Edit:

Yeah, given it's sheer size in series the crocodile's a bit of a pickle when looking at the original mech, though given Gosei had no apparent thought towards originally including her, that could play into it, though I suppose that may not play well into Goseigreen being part of the previous iteration of the team.

Hmm, a polearm perhaps? Suppose you could also pull Dragonranger, and have it mostly operate seperately until the later zords appear, and maybe split apart to combine with the original megazord, though I'm not certain if the toys individual cars were capable of that. Hmm... Suppose she could trade places with Jake making that whole part of the zord formation less...suggestive, and have the snake zord pull an oroboros and form a disc or sheild....

....Kira in Harmony and Dizchord....Well, Kira or a really bizarre Xander cameo...

Yes.

Please Yes.
Comments from author:
Neat trick? If you don't already have a second chapter (or further) finished, mark it complete. That way everyone is super excited when you produce something. If you don't, then you don't have people nagging you about said same story being incomplete. :)

My problem at this point is Dawn's zord and how it might fit into Gosei Great. I also need to finish Once a Ranger because rather than giving Emma the whole Super Convenient Awesome Singing Voice deus ex, we're going to see a return of a musically-inclined Ranger from a past team. :)

EDIT: In Goseiger, we're never told why the megazord is complete despite the fact that Gosei Green is now dead and therefore unable to call a zord. I might go the Dairanger route, though, and have it be that Troy and Dawn are interchangable as the central zord.

And Kira's a possibility, as is Mia. Or both. Vida's a DJ, so she technically fits my previous comment even though she wouldn't really apply to the situation. Syd was a model and singer before becoming SPD Pink...

Review of chapter "A Fiery New Flavor (Satsu/Mia Watanabe)" from BoosterBronze
Review:
Satsu as Hime Shinkenred? Yes please! Seriously nice bit of fic-age here. You manage to in one fell swoop resolve what few problems I had with Samurai, not to mention you gave Jayden a personality injection. Which, honestly, Bravo. Bra-f-ing-vo. I love the guy, but, he's got as much personality half the time as Carter Grayson....and that's not a good thing. Him literally mislabeling things for the team as a way to needle the 'true' shinkenred when she shows up? That's just awesome.

Even though it's completed I hope to see more here, because this just comes across as a really fun fic, I'd love to see what a difference this version of the team could make in the finale.
Comments from author:
I've got at least one possible sequel in mind here that would cover the end of the season and resolve the whole "Satsu wants to jump Mia" thing. Then we'd get into Megaforce, and there is a Shinkenger vs. Goseiger movie that could be looted for plot devices to bring Satsu to Harwood County...

Review of chapter "Seaick Soul (Dawn/Gosei)" from Harry
Review:
Not bad. Nice way for Dawn to get into the action. But, if you REALLY want to read a story with Dawn, Faith and a interesting cast, go to the MMPR section of TTH, and you will find a story there that has Dawn as the Green Ranger. And not just ANY green Ranger, but TOMMY OLIVER'S GREEN RANGER!
Comments from author:
*shrugs* Or I can work on my own stories.

Review of chapter "A Fiery New Flavor (Satsu/Mia Watanabe)" from Harry
Review:
Now this looks INTERESTING! Without full cable, I don't get to see the Rangers. But, I AM working on a Ranger story of my own on FF.net. And I think, from what the reviews have been saying, I have caught a audience! But, as far as this story is concerned, I DO want to see more!

It's marked completed.

Review of chapter "The Justicar (Faith/Samara)" from laoshi
Review:
Now I have to reread Perfection.

It will be such a chore I’m sure.

I’ve never played Mass Effect have no idea what’s going on but I’m sure I’ll follow enough things to enjoy it.

Let’s recruit the blue space skank. That’s a Lehane idea if I ever heard one. Faith wants Morinth to serve under her huh?

The romance brings a tear to my eye. I’m sure one day their bluish grandchildren will gather round the fire to hear the tale of how grandmother and grandmum got together. Providing of course they haven’t made a pack to kill them as well, in which case their would probably be considerably more running and hiding involved.
Comments from author:
Sadly, Morinth can't procreate. That's part of her being what she is entails. Asari reproduce via 'melding'; the entire species is asexual but looks female, and they join with their preferred partners (of any gender or species) to use their DNA as a randomizer to keep Asari DNA from stagnating. The Asari 'mother' then gives birth to the child which is mostly Asari, but we've seen some scattered instances of the 'father' influencing the offspring as well.

Review of chapter "The Justicar (Faith/Samara)" from scottm
Review:
Great story. I often don't review because I don't usually have a lot to say. But I like reading your writing. What happened to the 12 for 12 you did? I only read one. Are you not posting all the new stories on your author page now? Keep up the wonderful writing!
Comments from author:
I left them up for a week or so before squishing them into a few other story collections; I don't like having a massively bloated account and so I tend to condense stuff into collections. Perfection (prequel to this) is one, Split Banana is another (still on my author page), and the rest are scattered over Lunalettes and Joe's FFA Collection.

Review of chapter "The Justicar (Faith/Samara)" from Chikageko
Review:
Interesting, forget sheppard, have faith. Buffy certianly couldn't do it, though she's a bit better at the won't stay dead thing. Out of curisoity though, where did faith pick up biotics? To the best of my knowledge you had to be born with those. Though magic mascurading as biotics would certianly make sense, the slayer is a host demon after all and supposed to be powerful as all hell.
Comments from author:
Well, if you read the preceding story, Faith replaced Shepard by way of some sort of vengeance demon wish (Malice is a vengeance demon she interacts with in 'Go Ask Malice') and they introduced ways of inducing biotics after birth in-universe as a way of making it canon that Shepard COULD be a biotic or could NOT be a biotic depending on your choices. :)

Review:
you can't leave it at that!

this has the potential to be a great multi-part story. this was a teaser.
come on, add more chapters to this please.
Comments from author:
I'm never sure whether or not I'll do more of my little ideas, so I mark them as completed one-shots so that if I do manage a "sequel", you're pleasantly surprised. I mean, "Perfection" was meant to be it for a Faith-in-ME2 idea and then this popped up. Oops.
