Review of chapter "Interlude - Gropos" from superbrutal
Review:
Wow, well you have to do what is necessary to survive.

And lets be honest those soldiers were just going to die eventually anyways, and only accomplish killing a few starving people before the Androids get them.

Review of chapter "Interlude - Gropos" from Dusel
Review:
So I guess the next chapter will show us how Mayan grew up and then returned to the past to help the Z-Fighters and Belmo's gang against the Androids and stop them before they blow everything up. Really emotional chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two - House of Cards" from TheHeartist
Review:
A continually good job, as usual. I have to agree with what you said about Buffy Z too, far too much rutting going on, but I can see where the plot arcs inspired you. Especially now with this connection to real life events. You're writing the better fic IMHO though, everyone has been more well rounded out getting to this point. Keep it up :)
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it, as I felt I was taking a risk with the real life connection. But once I decided that Gero was hiding in Afghanistan helping Al-Qa'ida, he had to be tied in in a way that made sense. So out went the planes, in came implanted suicide bombers. I just hope it didn't came across like I had some axe to grind. I can forgive that in Buffy Z the US government was said to be behind 9-11 if there was a decent follow up to that story angle. Unfortunately no follow up ever materialized so it came across as out of the blue and an axe in need of grinding. And again, it might have been a plot idea that 3D never picked up on again as he took Buffy Z into different directions. I think I pulled a few of those as well. I do think that if you make such a bold statement you'd better well follow it up with a nice story arc.

But I'm digressing. Again, glad you liked it!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two - House of Cards" from superbrutal
Review:
Ah, so Dr. Gero is not simply bad timing, but more of a sick bastard then i had previously thought.

Makes sense should have known there is no such thing as coincidence.

good chapter.
Comments from author:
I'm surprised that nobody caught on to this when I stated at the start of Slayer and the Saiyan that for the purposes of this story the events in BtvS would be taking place a year later then in the series. Which meant that Belmo met Buffy in 1998. And that the androids would be coming in .... drumroll.... 2001.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two - House of Cards" from janusi
Review:
Yeah, tying the story so close into RL events detracted from my enjoyment of this chapter. Hopefully the rest of your story will be better again.
Comments from author:
I'm sorry you didn't enjoy this chapter. But I tied in the events of the Cell saga to 9-11 when I started Slayer and the Saiyan. I felt it had to be tied together with some background when I started writing this part. It will intersect more with RL events as the story goes on, but never like this again. This was Gero's story and I thought long and hard on how I could let Gero contribute to a terrorist plot that sense regarding his expertise.

Review of chapter "Prologue: The Saints Are Coming" from buffyrazz
Review:
He's back!! So glad to see a nice sized chunk of this new to read and enjoy.

As to Belmos look, for some reason i see him in my head as facially like gary Sinise, dunno why thats what i see.

Androids, 2 of em, a tub n a oldie.. my scoobie sense is tingling.. as Mayan wanted to pun.. these aren't the droids your looking for. I think there's others.. bad others ( great now i'm channeling Lost plotlines).

Just finished re-reading BuffyZ, yup all of it, great story but i'm liking urs better, the power buildup is more gradual, n i'm just enjoying it more.

Keeping a weather eye out 4 the next part.

i dunno if its abandoned, i went searching n couldnt find any updates. Maybe the angels r too busy on supernatural?? i am a disabled pens with nothing but time, a back that likes to well cause me pain n tiredness just taking the trash out. Could use some Littica Chi training :). i read a LOT of fan fic n love big epics. so i re read em, journeyverese, wandereverse, mithras, if its epic length, if its buffy, HP, HL, Supn, multi fandom i'm interested.

Currently rereading Compelled while waiting 4 updates, love it when i see a updat from a story that makes me squee like a not manly thing.

Comments from author:
I can never stop mentioning how much Buffy Z has been an influence on me. For all its strengths and faults (I could so do without the Faith porn and Buffy bashing) it did show to me that a crossover between these verses was possible and overal it has a good story arc. So, did 3D finally add some updates to Buffy Z or is it more or less abandoned?

As for the build up, well, I hope I can pull it off but almost all previous parts have been leading up to this. So let's bring on the popcorn and let's see where it ends! ;)

Yay, I was completely wondering about alternate time-line Scoobies what what had happened.

Great job.

A great long chapter!

It was all very enjoyable, I wasn't expecting the upcoming Buffy fight but I'm looking forward to what happens.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Jigsaw Falling Into Place" from TheHeartist
Review:
So Amun has crazy mind invading powers? Intriguing :)

On a side note, I always imagine Belmovekk with actor Paul Bettany's voice. Just wondering how you originally envisioned his speaking voice?
Comments from author:
To be honest, I have no idea. My only guideline to his speech is he doesn't use contractions and a more formal way of talking. Like he spent too much time in Arendia during his career. Overal I prefer to leave such details up to the reader. That's why I don't describe Belmo's features. Other then vague references to crazy Saiyan hair and horrible tattoos I don't think I've ever done a physical description of him since early part one.

On a side note, I'd love it if somebody were to make a fanart drawing of Belmo, or any other of the crazy characters of Original of the Species. All in Toriyama style of course. ;) Just so I can finally see how he looks.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1: Jigsaw Falling Into Place" from Alastor
Review:
Freaking awesome chapter! There were a few typos but nothing real big and pretty damn good for how fast you got it out. Heh I totally called Trunks being with Mayan even before you mentioned it at the end of the last story. Although I did always picture Dawn being with Gohan since he's only like 7 or 8 years older than Dawn and Mayan but I would guess that in the future world that both Gohan and Dawn would probably be dead. I will be curious to find out who is stronger, Mayan or Trunks, since Mayan is older than Trunks by about a year or two I think. Any way can't wait for more!
Ja ne

And the suspense just keeps building. Can't wait to see why exactly Mayan is so shocked to see Buffy.
