Review of chapter "chapter tventy-four" from (Current Donor)Listener
Review:
This story is brilliant. I loved the way you brought in the muppets - - treating them as if they totally belonged, no questions asked. It made for a very clever, fun story - - and you somehow managed to make The Master a protagonist of sorts. Good job there.

I do think the story bogged down a bit near the end, and also when the Count was torturing Paul, but overall I really liked it and would definitely read it again someday.

Review of chapter "chapter tventy-four" from TraditionalMendicant
Review:
Reminds me of some of the darker Muppet episodes.

For example, "Don't Eat The Pictures" features the spirit of an Egyptian prince, bound to Earth for several thousand years by an immortal (and creepy looking) demon. He's set to solve a riddle, a riddle whose answer ('a museum') is one of the most fundamentally unfair I've heard, since museums were first established relatively recently; sometime in the last three centuries or so.

Oh, and then when Big Bird, using his more modern knowledge, eventually hands the prince the solution to the riddle, the kid gets his heart weighed against a feather by Osiris. And he *fails* the ancient test.

Big bird's intervention eventually convinces Osiris to make an exception - possibly due to the fact that Osiris believes him to be an Ibis, a creature associated with Thoth, and it's technically Thoth's duty to weigh the hearts, not Osiris'.

So, I guess the point is that the whole screwed-up Egyptian mythology is canon for Sesame Street, and that just creates a whole bunch of questions. For instance, Thoth is also credited for the invention of the alphabet, reading, writing, and numbers, so Big Bird may be indirectly responsible for all the numbers and letters running around sponsoring things.

Review of chapter "chapter tventy-four" from ShyBob
Review:
Great story! I applaud your inspired account of the Count! Great interpretation via the Count on Sweetums and the other muppets being Kermit's minions.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

The Count was difficult, but astonishingly fun, to write. Partly because as a vampire, he should think differently than a human character, partly because he's supposed to be old and at least somewhat powerful, and partly because even at his most Sesame Street benevolent, the Count was obviously not working under the same rules & assumptions as everybody else.

The Theater as Kermit's minions seemed the most natural way for the Count to view the situation. Sweetums and some of the other muppet-monsters might agree. Kermit probably wouldn't describe the situation with those terms at all : )

Review of chapter "chapter tventy-four" from EasterCat
Review:
An entertaining story and one of the more original crossovers that I've read.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

One of the things that I strive for is that I won't have a full listing of stories that are all just like something else that you have already seen a dozen times. I have played with crossovers that I've rarely, if ever, seen before I start one. I play with different pairings, some of which I've been told a reader had never even imagined before seeing my stories. Sometimes, I am delighted with the results. Other times, less delighted, but it was still memorable and not the same as a dozen or more other stories that the same summary could be applied to...

On the maybe-down side, this has caused a few reviewers to question my sanity or what sort of medication I may or may not be taking... (what were you taking to come up with this?!?) I can live with that : )

Review of chapter "chapter tventy-four" from (Past Donor)PKiller
Review:
Congratulations. You have written a professional quality story, and have impressed me thoroughly. The few mistakes that remain in this story fall into the category that only normally need to be addressed in the final comb-through of a piece before submission. You have risen above not merely the 90% of all fanfiction, but 90% of all fiction I have seen submitted for publication.

The entire piece is filled with delightfully high octane nightmare fuel, and a morbid twist on my fond memories that has reminded me of my love of both BtVS and the Muppets.

Again, congratulations, and I will keep an eye out for more of your work in the future.

Review of chapter "chapter tventy-four" from Mcspender
Review:
Bravo, Bravo!!!!.
Congratulations for such a fine series, this fic is now the stuff of legends...ok and nightmares too =D!.
The Count is counting happy, Kermit is ok, and the Master... weell, we all know how his hellmouth handling went.
Ya know, I think that the Count can challenge Willow and Fred both in the mathematical and magical fields; I mean, you can say he knew people like Euler or Newton or Bernoulli personally =D!.

Cool series, see ya!!!.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Legends and nightmares? I can live with that : )

The Count is off counting and reading physics journals, soon to be planning a castle near Los Angeles, Kermit is off doing what frogs do when their theater is closed. The Master is on the Hellmouth for a few more years...

One benefit of vampre aging is that it gives them plenty of time to cultivate skills without growing feeble of body and mind (assuming they had a good mind to start with!). The chance to meet so many people who will later become historical is just a bonus.
