Review of chapter "The right to bare arms" from Doodle
Review:
What would happen if Xander described the Anubis in Stargate SG-1 as "Anubis is as stranded as a pole in a mountain" or maybe "A half Ascended is as stranded as a pole in a mountain" or something like that.

It would be funny if Xander got trapped in a "never ending" circle of going to different realities and saying the "play on words" as you said, and it having hilarious results on both the good guys and the bad guys.

What would happen if Xander said something about the Powers that Be? Would he even know about them yet?

Or maybe even the Watchers Council or the Wizarding World(the story -is- marked under 'Multiple Crossings')
Comments from author:
Hmm ... there's a temptation to get Xander to talk about the Powers that aren't, but I suspect that the fallout from that would be catastrophic!

This is a 'naming of names' curse - manifesting the twist on who someone is to make them what they're called - so Xander would have to come up with some sort of nickname for Anubis rather than just describe him in some weird way. I've no plans to take this out of Sunnydale I'm afraid, as I'm limited by the image my DB can generate, so there won't be any cosmic reality travelling in later chapters.

The Watcher's Council, though? That's a very tempting idea ...

Review of chapter "Try not to wig too much" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Admit it, you set up the wig bit deliberately...



Fever: You shoulda been here for the big "Wig" promotion.
Flytrap: Say what?
Fever: Oh, it didn't work of course.. we wound up with a warehouse full of blonde wigs--until the Guatemalan earthquake.
*Flytrap expresses horrified fascination, not unlike passing a bad wreck*
Fever: The relief effort needed clothes, blankets, anything; and Carlson, from the goodness of his heart, sent them 35,000 blond wigs. *pause* I have this picture in my mind of quake victims in shock, stumbling through the ruins.. all looking like Dolly Parton.



The above wig humor excerpted from the same episode of WKRP in Cincinnati that gave us the final line; "...as God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."
Comments from author:
LOL!

I admit nothing. Nothing to admit. And I never dare ask what's going on in my DB's mind when he's cooking up stuff like this ... *g*

Review of chapter "Try not to wig too much" from (Past Donor)Keldin
Review:
So I looked at the two side-by-side. I could still swear there's an issue, but I can't figure out what's, ah, wigging me out about this. This one DOES look much closer, though, so it may be - probably is - just my imagination.
Comments from author:
Apparently the only difference between the two is the hairstyle, so going from blonde to black does change the look quite dramatically. I know the face isn't an exact match to SMG, but I think it comes pretty close. All a matter of personal perception I expect. :-)

Love it. Typical Xander, and the pictures totally make up for the lack of words.

Review of chapter "I bring the body electric" from JoeDineen
Review:
Very funny, I wonder can Xander work his way through the entire school before he is stopped.
Comments from author:
He is currently trying very, very hard not to say anything at all. Just in case. *g*

Review of chapter "I bring the body electric" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
WONDERFUL! Willow RosenBORG!

The worrying thing to me is that I didn't think of it first. Oh-well, well done really made me laugh. Now, no doubt, I will have ideas for Willow RosenBORG stories going through my mind all day.

Review of chapter "I bring the body electric" from (Past Donor)Keldin
Review:
Heh. Okay, that was amusing. Oh, and in answer in your answer... well, yeah, equal opportunity humiliation. And yeah, difference in taste of eye candy.

I do recognize that these are sculpted 3D artwork. Of interest, possibly: The Giles one I did immediately recognize AS Giles. Even the Willow one was somewhat close. But... other than reading comprehension-wise, I still don't see Buffy in the Vampirella one. :-(
Comments from author:
I passed that on to my DB - so see if the next chapter helps at all ...

Review of chapter "I bring the body electric" from Omegaprime
Review:
LOL, that bad pun just made my day.

What are you going to do next? Call Angel or Spike one of the Twilight vampires?

Man, Xander should call himself a roadrunner to get out of there.

Is he going to call Snyder an actual troll?

Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
It's not the naming per se that triggers the change, but the play on words that twists reality. So simply claiming to be the roadrunner (or 'quick as a flash' for that matter) isn't going to work. He could possibly try calling himself a "toadrunner,' but I don't think Willow would be all that impressed. :-)

Review of chapter "I bring the body electric" from cmdruhura
Review:
Xander might want to describe himself as Nightcrawler since teleportation would be a good gift to have right about now.
Comments from author:
You're probably right - except that Xander's probably too gobsmacked to think of it. And that's assuming the magic would work on him, of course ...

Review of chapter "I bring the body electric" from Gideon
Review:
OK, that one was the best of all. Well done.
Now what can you come up with for Deadboy?

Review of chapter "Open mouth, insert fool" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
This must continue!

He needs to snare everyone, and I mean EVERYONE involved in the show! The Ms. Madison trophy, the Principal, the Cordettes, ALL OF 'EM.

:)
Comments from author:
I'd like to oblige, but I'm a little limited by the images I've got so far - and what the DB can do with the software props he has.

If you can suggest something suitably tongue twisted though, I can always ask him and see what he can do ...

Review of chapter "Blink and you'll wish it" from Greywizard
Review:
LOL!!

And I have to say, I can understand why Xander would make such a comment. ;-)

Review of chapter "Open mouth, insert fool" from cmdruhura
Review:
That looks more like Tarzan than Conan.
Comments from author:
Well, it's bad form to wear a helmet in the library, and he's in California, so the loincloth is leopard rather than bear - and it's meant to look like Giles, which will inevitably mean erring towards the Ron Ely look rather than the Arnie one ...

Besides - Frazetta did illos for both, so it's entirely possible that Xander (and the spell) got them slightly confused. :-)

Review of chapter "Open mouth, insert fool" from (Past Donor)Keldin
Review:
*shiver* Okay, THAT image I could have done without.
Comments from author:
So semi-naked girls are okay, but semi- naked guys aren't? This is equality humiliation going on here, I'll have you know ...

Personally, I prefer this to the first picture, but then my taste in eye candy is probably very different from yours. Which is fine. Room in this Universe for all tastes.

But you have to admit that's a pretty clever peice of artwork. Sculpted entirely in 3D. As later chapters will clearly demonstrate. (Consider yourself warned! *g* )
