Review of chapter "Ascension of a Goddess" from (Past Donor)IntoOblivion
Wow, what an excellent response to the idea, I'm so glad the 'Hug a Donor' Challenge caused you to come across it. It's oddly bittersweet to read your story - you are writing this far better than I could have ever hoped to, and I'm loving the story so far, but it does re-ignite the plot bunnies that gave me the idea in the first place... and I don't have the time to let my muse follow their lead.

You've got the humour of the movie down perfectly (this actually makes me want to watch it again). Yes, Disney did massacre Greek mythology, but I thought they did it in a fun way and this has every indication of doing the same (or well... using the pieces left in the cartoon to build something interesting). I really like how you've blended the worlds in this and can't wait to see how it develops.

If you're looking for someone to bounce ideas off or keep an eye on continuity/characterisation in a beta I'd be happy to help out, I like to think I'm okay at spelling/grammar but it's not my forte so someone else would probably be better if that's what you need.

I'm so glad you've liked what's there so far. It has been awhile since I watched the film myself so I'm pleasently surprised you feel I managed to capture the humor represented there. (Perhaps it's time I finally picked up the DVD of the film to replace my old and much beloved VHS copy.)

Maybe I can let you see what's coming before anybody else to make sure I don't overdo it with the story or 'Jump the Shark' as it were. Grammar and Spelling wise I'm getting slightly better in catching those sorts of things.

I'd be interested in seeing what you were thinking of when you first wrote the challenge... There is no promise that I would incorporate any of it, but just knowing what other people would do sometimes help to really make a story shine. And who knows you could have conceived of some idea that I never would have dreamt up in a million years.

Considering this is Disney blending the two worlds the way I did just seemed natural, sure people have done it before with the Hercules/Xena television shows, but it fits. And I never thought Disney massacred anything, if anything they made Greek Mythology slightly more relevant to the children of the time. If it helped make some people want to research and learn more about the Greek myths I say it can't be all bad.

So what if Hercules wasn't really born from a mortal mother, the tale of Hercules has been told by so many people over the years it can be interpreted in many different ways. (Heck his name was Heracles if you want to get technicle.)

Anyway... Thank you for this generous review, the wonderful idea that I had never even concieved of before (and me with all of my love of Disney, I mean I made a crossover with The Appledumpling Gang before I made one for something more obvious...) I wonder though. Should I have Buffy visit Joyce in heaven in the next chapter or build up the angst for such a meeting before I pull a sappy teary-eyed moment such as that?

LOL. Loved the bit about everything being animated. Sure hope Willow won't be able to snatch Goddess Buffy back to Earth.

Review of chapter "Ascension of a Goddess" from Cutiepie
Interesting, but I am reminded why I swore that I would never watch that particular movie. They made mincemeat of the mythos. Since I have studied Greek and Roman mythology since I was around 8 years old, I just can't stand the way that Disney screwed it all up. Oh well, you are doing well with your story so far, and I wish you much luck with it. I just won't be reading this one. Maybe the next one you tackle, since I generally enjoy your storytelling styles.

Review of chapter "Ascension of a Goddess" from Ferfer
Cute, and I can so hear the voices of the others exactly as they were in the movie. It would be interesting to see where Buffy took this.
