Review of chapter "Chapter 38" from Valandar
Oooh... worst part about that knee is the dent is gonna STAY there a while... poor Tony. >.
Comments from author:
All of a sudden, I'm picturing that scene in Iron Man 1 where the arms are trying to pull the armor pieces off him...

Review of chapter "Chapter 38" from (Recent Donor)tammin
PURE WIN!!! Squirrel Girl as a Zumba instructor was priceless. I also liked Thrud's "Snakes on a Plane" reference and the god's knee that she gave to Stark. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.
Comments from author:
I felt bad for my helpers because I had to carefully highlight text to be translated. It wasn't just "everything Thrúd says" because there was Tony's BS, and Thrúd speaks modern English at points. They did a kick ass job, though. Very proud.

Review of chapter "Chapter 38" from MarcusRowland
Not familiar enough with the cast here, but is the class being led by Squirrel Girl?

later edit - have to admit that the Thrud I'm familiar with is rather different
Comments from author:
The class is indeed being led by Doreen Green. She'll likely recur in the New York City bits (SHIELD, Spider-Clan, et cetera). As for the rest of the cast, yeah, they are a bit unfamiliar but that's why I'm going out of my way to introduce them before Thrúd starts popping up with SHIELD's people. Thrúd is actually Thor's daughter in mythology as well as being a valkyrie; her history and origins were created by me to fit this story. Eir, Göndul, Kára, and the other valkyries are likewise drawn from both Poetic and Prose Edda.

EDIT: I think you got the recommender email present in the past. If not... part of it is visible on my Tumblr for anyone who clicked through the ChipIn and read the info page:

Review of chapter "Chapter 38" from DianeCastle
Squirrel Girl is one of my favorite characters, if only because she is the epitome of the 'Lethal Joke Character' of TV Tropes.
Comments from author:
Yeah, that part of the scene is actually mixing two real world people I met at ConnectiCon: there was a Deadpool giving Zumba lessons at the con, and a Squirrel Girl among his students. I couldn't get Deadpool's voice right to save my life, so I merged the two and made Doreen the teacher.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from CageFire
Really good. I'm rather looking forward to when the remake catches up with this. Although, parts of this version do kinda set me on edge. Well at least at first. The whole kendra thing for instance, but you explained it somewhat to my satisfaction a bit after. That's the problem with most buffy fics, if you want faith to show up as a slayer, kendra has to die. Some fics make it temporary, others just consider it necessary and move on. Although frankly, I suppose kendra isn't really much of a major character, it would be difficult to keep her alive as she's not very developed in the character sense.
Comments from author:
Well, the bigger problem is that Kendra would be an even WORSE fit than Buffy (if that's even possible) to try and integrate with the Cordettes. So even IF she lived and IF she remained in Sunnydale for some reason, she'd likely either be with Buffy or become a third faction all her own in the fight against evil. That's assuming she doesn't return home as per canon, which would either remove her from the story until her eventual return or force me to further fragment things to keep track of her. There's just no good answer when it comes to her. Faith, on the other hand, is in New England. New England, where the X-Men are. Specifically Boston, where Emma hails from.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from Dragonwolftiger
Still a good read even with the spacers. It still reads as under quarantine on the top.
Comments from author:
Yeah, I dropped the quarantine until I realized - much to my chagrin - that the new spacers push it to the top of Latest. I'm going to wait a day or two for it to drop down a bit, then remove Quarantine so people reading BB2K12 can spoil themselves if they want.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from (Recent Donor)Keldin
Not getting notifications, but it IS being listed as the next unread tracked story. Perhaps that's something to have them look into?
Comments from author:
There's a handful of bugs related to updates-in-quaratine but because it's not a common occurrence, it's not high on the priority list compared to things like quirks in the (X)HTML engine for posting.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from Rune
Why in the world did someone quarentine the story?

There are no real lemon scenes, not much to squick on, you disclaimed stuff, so what is some one complaining about?

You don't have to answer I'm just writing this more as a response to whoever did it.

About the fic, its great so far, but how is Willow taking Cordy/Michelle? And do you have anyone in mind for Willow?

Thanks for the update.
Comments from author:
Merf, you missed the note. I need a way to make it flash in colors. I quarantined it so I could add the "junk" chapters that would make the numbers sync up with Blue Belle 2012. I didn't want it to spam Latest constantly (already slipped and did that once) so I quarantined it myself.

As for the actual question... I do in fact have someone in mind for Willow in the rewrite. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 03" from Deathshead
Why does Cordelia have white hair in this chapter? I thought your new version of the first chapter had her hair be transformed into her mother's natural green.
Comments from author:
Mostly because I haven't finished fixing everything yet. I do have a hundred thousand words worth of fic to tweak here. The only reason I updated Chapter 1 was so that this one whiny bitch would stop screaming about persecution. I quarantined him for an improper disclaimer, and the one I suggested he use to get out of quarantine was more specific and informative than the one this story had back when it was originally posted in 2009. Therefore, in his mind, he was being persecuted because my suggestion (the disclaimer I've used on every new story since mid-2011 or so) wasn't what I used before that. Or something. I don't know. It shut him up, though.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from Brew
Wow this was great easily one of if not the best Marvel/Xander centric stories I've seen. Although to be honest in the beginning I thought Harmony was going to end up as Logan/James kid. The only real complaint I have is Buffy taking the vanished Xander thing and the Willow rejection alot better than I thought she would be seeing as the whole exclusion thing didn't really start happening till Season three although I havn't watched the show in a while. On that note there is a lack of Buffy but seeing as this is very much a Xander and to a lesser extent Cordy and Willow story plus the legion of Marvel charcters i don't really see her having much of role.
Comments from author:
I mean, I could have done the clichéd "Summers? Buffy's last name is Summers? Well, there's a Scott Summers. They must be related through Joyce despite the fact that Summers is the surname of Buffy's FATHER!" shit. But... well, I have that with Willow. And Cordelia. And Xander/Michelle. What would be the point?

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from cptquinn
Glad you killed Angel, sad you killed Spike, a bit weirded out that Xander would choose a female form instead of making up a new guy to be.
All that aside, cant wait for more. lol
Comments from author:
The rewrite in progress establishes the 'why' a bit better at least for the opening phase of the story; he'll get a bit of help at the hands of telepaths as things go on but circumstances will still make it hard for him personally to assume his own form owing to... well, who he is.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from JediKnight
Very nice job on the new chapters, though I'm wondering why not use Hank McCoy(Beast). Haven't seen you post anything in awhile.
Comments from author:
The truth of the matter? To equalize the playing field. Even back when I was starting this in '09 and '10, Hulk was being shown as intended for an Avengers property. There are few things that can stand up to the Hulk, much less take him down. I didn't want to put one of them in Sunnydale. So by putting Bruce at Xavier's in Hank's normal spot, I don't have people wanting Bruce in the Avengers.

Also, was intending to use Hank Pym and didn't want two Hanks. Hank Pym will actually be in the revision I'm doing.

Review of chapter "Chapter 42" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Ah, it's been a while since we have had the good "Joe-ness" in the updates column.

And still pleasing as always, too. I 'specially liked this part: "Who would've thought that a pom-pom princess with an IQ on par with her bust line - in imperial, even, not metric". Such an attention to detail. If the wit were any more dry, it would dessicate. Props.
Comments from author:
Well, think of the difference. A 36 inch band size in the US (and the UK and Europe, oddly enough, despite them being on the metric system) is equivalent to a 91 centimeter band size in places like Japan. One of those is much stupider than the other.

Review of chapter "Chapter 06" from Meneldur
Nice. It's good to see you back, and it's even better that it's this story, which is one of my favorites. The background info about the spiders and Carol was good to have, although I'm still a bit confused about all these spiders. As for carol, it was great to see her interacting with Fury and Natasha. I wonder if she'll even try to seduce Natasha... in any case, it promises to be interesting.
Comments from author:
I wanted to include a full Spider-Family in the first draft, cut it because I didn't think people would be able to keep up, and then decided I wanted it because a number of them will play roles when the Scoobies reach New York City. Six of the seven members of the Spider-Family are actually canon characters, while the last is from a now-defunct fan fiction of mine.

Felicia Hardy (Black Cat): Surgically-enhanced socialite and albino adventurer
Peter "Spider" Parker (Spider-Man): I think we all know who he is
Jessica "Subway" Drew (Recluse): The original Spider-Woman of canon
Julia "Charlotte" Carpenter (Arachne): The second, black and white Spider-Woman who influenced Peter's black costume and therefore the design of Venom
Astrid "Legs" Jansen (Chelicera): An original creation of mine from Ultimate Arachnia; got a new name because "Arachne" and "Arachnia" were too damn similar
Mary Jane "Red" Watson: Costume designer and eventual PR manager for the Spider-Family
Gwen "Dexter" Stacy: The group's go-to girl for pretty much anything, from mad science to information to organization to overwatch.

As for Carol, Carol is roughly 21. Natasha... is old enough to be Carol's grandmother or possibly great-grandmother. Even if they look to be close in age, I'd feel kinda creepy doing that sort of thing.

Comments from author:
LOL, seriously, Angel and Edward Cullen both freak me out on pedophilia AND necrophilia grounds. Kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out.

'Cept for Dru. Her and Victor are a cute couple.
