Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Hilarious! You have the Blackadder voices and characterisations absolutely spot on. The line about 'covers of songs that finished last in Eurovision sung by William Shatner' cracked me up more than anything else this year except for the recent 'Communist cat' LOLcat.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Trying to write dialogue for Edmund really stretches your powers of simile beyond breaking point, but its a lot of fun to do.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Valkyrie
Good stuff. Very in character. Shame Spike couldn't slip in a Flash joke about doing it.
Comments from author:
Spike, isn't supposed to be a Flash substitute - 'slackbladder' just seemed to fit Spike. The man himself will be making an appearance later in the tale.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from spike
Lol poor Spike wonder what Dru meant by that cryptic warning
Comments from author:
Come on, it wasn't that cryptic! Unfortunately, literary causality requires him to play the part of the fall guy in this twisted tale, so to paraphrase Captain Fraser from Dad's Army: Your doomed! Doomed!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RevDorothyL
Juicing the rat . . . ewww! I'll be a long time getting THAT image out of my mind.

Meanwhile, I love the idea of Blackadder and Baldric as vamps, and I look forward to reading the rest of this!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from MBB
Bisshops loansharking money to vampires, that's typical Blackadder humor. (and realistic in Jossverse as well :-D )

You really captured the show with the right Jossverse twist.
Am I right to assume that it is set in Buffy early S2?
Comments from author:
Season 2 ish - it might not fit canon perfectly, but then when has Blackadder let historical accuracy stand in the way of a good joke?

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from spike
Blackadder is hilarious this would be a great new Blackadder series if they were to do one they'd have to change most of the plot of course but the core idea of Blackadder being a vampire could still be used

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Actually I always thought that post series one Blackadder was the only one to have any brains in a world full of idiots! So no problem him surviving to become a Master Vampire.

Anyway, great job of work here, this one's going on 'track' don't want to miss any.

Thanks for the link to the 'Tay Bridge' poem I'd forgotten exactly how terrible it was. However, I think you should say British or more accurately Scottish poet not English (he was a Jock). And as I read through it(the poem) I couldn't help think,'there's a cross over here'. I know I'm just 'sad'.

As I say great fic hope to see more soonish.

All the best,
Comments from author:
Tay Bridge Crossovers. Hmmm. How about a train arriving in Sunnydale as the crater opens up? "English" was a reference to the language it was written in rather than the nationality of the poet.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Alairyn
This is one of the best fic ideas I've come across in quite a while, and your execution of it is spot on. I can't wait for more!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Past Donor)HiltonK
You've got the blackadder 'voices' nailed :0)

Not sure I want to know how you know about that 'poem' tho, and loved the Tony Christie line.

More please!
Comments from author:
I came accross it as an example of what not to do in an excellent book called "The Ode Less Travelled" by Stephen Fry, on his hobby of writing poetry.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Past Donor)Methos

i have no words...


i nearly spat my drink all over the keyboard when i read this and i just had to do an image for it...;chapter=39

seriously, what are you drinking / smoking when you come up with plotlines like these?

wonderful stuff

Comments from author:
Thanks. Worryingly, I was completely substance free at the time, although I did accidentally watch 5 minutes of Eastenders, which may have pushed me over the edge.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Past Donor)vinniebatman
*claps hands excitedly*


And I love the specific Blackadder you chose, and how he came over, and the fact that Melchett is still around.

Wonder if anyone else heard about the sheep...


And is it wrong that I'm imagining Nursey as vampire?

Comments from author:
He's not actually any of the canon incarnations of Blackadder, he's just from the same gene pool. However, in an interview Stephen Fry did suggest the sheep being the reason General Melchett had a habbit of going BAAAA!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)MarcusRowland
Oh yeah, I can guess what's coming. I'm probably wrong, but I can guess. Looking forward to more.

You never know, hilarity may even ensue ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Past Donor)vinniebatman
You've captured the characters quite well and I'm enjoying it.

I could easily Baldrick getting a crush of Buffy, and Edmund behaving because of his cowardice and fear. He's too much of a weakling to really fight her.

Lovely story so far and I eagerly await more!

Comments from author:
That is an awesome idea - will definitely happen.
