Review of chapter "All Satin and Velvet Skinned." from RockyWilliams
Review:
Very enjoyable series. I'm glad you posted in the notes what character that first one Dru met was, for the life of me I couldn't figure out who it was. Had only ever heard of the Creeper once or twice long ago I think.
Comments from author:
The juxtaposition of the Creeper and Dru is what inspired this series. He is one of the great forgotten DC Heroes.

Two Face will find himself not the craziest at the party, how sad. And boy did he pick the wrong party to crash.

Perhaps he bit off a little two much for once? :)

Review:
You're doing an excellent job with Dru. She's such fun to play with. And OZ!!! Two of my favorite Buffy characters together, however briefly.

Review of chapter "Acquaintance Old, but Not Forgot." from Dusel
Review:
Ha-ha, Oz, lol that was nice, though what kind of music would they be playing on such an event? And would he notify the Scooby's?
Comments from author:
I'm sure Oz can play classical, and maaaayybe?

Review of chapter "Acquaintance Old, but Not Forgot." from AllenPitt
Review:
I could see Oz getting the explanation then saying "oh. That explains a lot" then moving on. He might be worried that Emma as a slayer means that Buffy is dead, or Faith... probably Faith, he'd conclude, I bet.
All we need now is for Riley to show up....though he likely wouldn't unless there was some kind of large demon problem in the area.
I wonder if Oz & Nina will ever meet (I read that if there'd been another season of Angel, he would have lost her to Oz...kind of a reverse of Buffy S4 where Oz loses Willow...

Review of chapter "A Great Shadow Entering" from AllenPitt
Review:
no doubt singing her 'briar patch' song. Poor Bruce. All his best opponents are totally nutso. Good counterpoint to his whole 'reason and logic' thing... Loved Miller's Dark Knight -- "The world doesn't make sense unless you force it to!" that's him in a nutshell....
Funny to think that by the time a council recruiter shows up for Emma, Dru will be well ensconced in Gotham society... I imagine it will take the new slayers/council months to get established enough to be able to send out people....

According to my timeline, this story takes place in early September, 2003. The Sunnydale refugees are getting established in Cleveland about now, and Lindsey is picking through the sinkhole for a certain amulet.

Bats is going,oh great another crazy in town. :)
Comments from author:
But a pleasant one. He knows she's a meta of some kind, but she has stayed extremely low-key and restrained, and obviously, she has no clue who he really is...

Review of chapter "A Great Shadow Entering" from WolfWriter
Review:
*SNORK*!!!

Bruce must be having ten fits having to deal with our darling Dru. She's even more of a nutcase than the Joker, only she's a lot nicer to look at, and she makes a lot more sense.

You're pulling Dru off just fine. I know that it's hard to write for a crazy person, but think of the most logical person you know, and portray them as the exact opposite.

Usually works for me, at any rate.

I like this story a lot, and am always on the lookout for the newest chapter.
Comments from author:
The other way of writing them, is to make them hyper-logical to an absurd level...

The hardest part is not making Dru cliche crazy. She is insane, she is extremely intelligent, she is a very powerful psychic, she started out as an extremely humane and caring woman, and she is one of the most powerful (due to her bloodline and experience) vampires that has ever existed.

She knows she's crazy and is using her madness to regain her humanity which is an absolutely insane proposition...but it's Dru...

Review of chapter "The Pain of Cleansing Truth." from AllenPitt
Review:
next door neighbor to the bat.... I wonder if she'll sense it when Spike shuffles back onto the mortal coil. Hopefully Montoya's contacts can find a slightly easier way of soul-gaining than the Trials. That looked a little bit painful.
All we need now is for Lorne to show up & open a night club--though he doesn't leave LA for another year roughly....
Dru is a great test of Bruce's detective skills--how much will he be able to find out about her...

Review of chapter "The Pain of Cleansing Truth." from Dusel
Review:
So we finally get to the continuation, nice. And I thought this day couldn't get any better what with me acing my Math exam in College and all. You just made my day even better mate, I just love to read fics like yours, the ones that just grab your eyeballs and glue them to the pc monitor and you can't even blink until you've read it all to the last word...
Comments from author:
Congrats on the acing of said exam! That's way more important than a stupid fic, but I am really glad people are liking these.
