Review of chapter "Epilogue - One Month Later" from misdom
I loved this story. I've pretty much stopped reading epics, because they almost never get finished. And I almost never read multiple crossovers because they are never well done. I loved this one though. You did an amazing job of balancing the characters. Everyone had their own strengths and played those up, while letting others cover their weaknesses.

I was so glad when I got to the end and saw there was a sequel. I can't wait to read it.

I think my favorite part of that was the tactics off between Sam and Buffy.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I too find the whole 'never completed story' thing offputting. However, I never start publishing unless I already have the entire story finished, or I at least have it outlined and sketched out. I'm obsessive like that.

It's hard to do the muktiple corssover concept well, simply because of the concept. This one was a little different, because I had the idea for the story when I read the challenge, and I had the list of characters within a couple hours, and I had the outline done by the next day.

I'll just warn you that there are some vignettes in the first sequel where our heroines are *not* the hero. But only two of them.

And if you feel like giving me a recommendation, I won't object. :-)

Review of chapter "Epilogue - One Month Later" from Genuka
You are exceedingly evil. You know that right?

*laughs* That's what happened to me and the Ship of the Line challenge and picking up Manchester's He Ain't Heavy.
So I totally understand.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I've taken a correspondence course in Evil Writing.

Hey, thanks for reading. And thanks for the rec! This is a story that just exploded in my head when my muse read an unanswered challenge on the homepage and said, 'YOU WILL WRITE THAT! NOW!'

I'll go ahead and tell you that I had no plans whatsoever for a sequel, especially not the one suggested by the epilogue. (And hasn't that been done to death in fanfic?) But my muse had a tiny idea, and the first chapter of "Cross Purposes" was born, and the series of pieces spawned off from that. Then I saw some reruns of Alex Mack (which I had sometimes watched with my kids, years ago). And my muse beat me mercilessly once again.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen – Long Distance Calls: Sam" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Quote: Maybe he could bribe Danny to do it, if he could get that cute little barista at Danny’s favorite coffee shop downtown to sell him a couple pounds of Danny’s favorite coffee beans. /Quote

I didn't notice when I first read this but is that a shout-out to 'The Barista Series' at
Comments from author:
Yes, it is. I learned about that series in the same way that I learned about the TtH website: from TV Tropes.

WARNING: if you don't know about, be apprised that it is full of awesome stuff, and is the worst known black hole for your time on the internet. Worse than TtH. Worse than Wikipedia. Worse than LOLcats. :-) The first time I went there, I looked around, and clicked, and read, and clicked, and read... at three the next morning, my S.O. yelled at me, "Are you coming to bed tonight or not?" On the other hand, because of TV Tropes, I found this site, and GrrlPower, and a slew of other fiction I had either ignored or never heard of.

Review of chapter "Ch. 31 - Trials and Tribulations, part 3" from Oxnate
Wow, I really loved the Force Recon and all the Trials. Great job with those.

EDIT: Not sure. The fact that Hermione is pregnant? Kinda hit us over the head with that one.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Did you spot the Chekhov's Guns I planted?

Edit: No, I meant in the 'force recon' and 'trials' parts. Okay, maybe I do kind of stick a lot of little junk into my stories.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty – Alex at the Burrow" from Zorgdub
So I was re-reading this story (again) and I finally see what so familiar about Alex's inner voice : it is basically halfway between your Buffy Summers and Anna Parsons inner voices.

That's why so often I pause wondering "wait, doesn't she sound like someone else ... no after checking that's definitely Alex".

And if you're a reader looking for reviews on the story : it's awesome, read it. Now.
If you need actual reasons for that, those includes (but are not limited to) : spot on characterisation, very well planned from the beginning to the ending, excellent pace, witty dialogue, clearly described and exciting action scenes, endearing characters and banter, brilliant plans and ideas, very high coherence of the story and the setting, epic story, Attack of the 50 Foot Willow, Xander and Jack O'Neill challenging Batman's composure with their jokes ...
Comments from author:
:-) Well, Alex does have a few elements of the voices from Buffy, Anna Parsons, Jade Sinclair, and my daughters. Plus I tried to make her sound like the Alex of the tv shows, but with a little maturity.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen – Long Distance Calls: Sam" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Daniel's favorite barista? Hmmm... Are you the person who wrote the Barista series of stories or have you read them? Or is that just a chance mention of a barista in the story? Yes, my curiosity is boundless and drives me batty if I don't at least ask. *sheepish grin*

Also, this is definitely an interesting premise. I'm not going to red this one in one sitting, however, especially not at this time of night.
Comments from author:
Yes, I admit it, I read all the Barista series too. And some of my stories are extremely long, so I don't expect people to stay up and read the whole thing in one sitting. Case in point: I have several Phase novels that are longer than the *longest* Harry Potter novel.

Review of chapter "Ch. 42 - SNAFU, part 4" from MistofRainbows
Really hate these crap dream/or badly designed chapters. They're either dreams or author crap because there is almost no chance that evil Willow could actually find the right dimensions... all of the people... and such... let alone within a couple of days...(Mostly cause some of the enemies weren't talked about... maybe she could have worked something out by seeing the portals... but that still leaves a frightening lack of information) basically this comes across as a let me kick the characters around because it's a dream and it's stupid and it's been dragging on for four damn chapters...

That said the rest of the story has been interesting and amusing.
Comments from author:
That said, you have a valid point! Because - as you'll see in a couple chapters - that's not what's going on at all, and part of the process is precisely what you already thought about.

Review of chapter "Ch. 26 - Long Distance Calls Again, part 2" from Difdi
> And I can’t wait to see what happens when she does it with some cold iron the next time we’re facing one of those
> stupid Sidhe jerks.

Unfortunately, it probably wouldn't be cold iron anymore after the melting. Cold iron is pure iron that has not been refined or forged with human-made heat. If Willow's magic counts as "made by humans" then cold iron would stop being cold iron and simply be regular iron after she melted it.

> If Dirac’s hypothesis about the non-constancy of universal constants across huge deltas of space and time is correct,
> then a minor change in the fine structure constant could cause all the matter inside the pouch to go off with the

Don't forget air volumes. Air has mass, and even a few grams of matter converted to energy produces a yield measured in kilotons.
Comments from author:
'Cold iron' changes its technical definition in every setting. SO you're probably right (since it was said by a non-expert), but we have no way of telling in the Buffyverse.

Review of chapter "Epilogue - One Month Later" from SilverWave
I actually had trouble getting in to this one but came back to it today and couldn't put it down.

Really good... Really Really :-)


Comments from author:
Thanks, and thanks for the Rec. I think the problem is my writing style. I'm verbose. I like to world-build. I like to retcon things that should have been explained in the original fiction. That often leads to a slow start.

Maybe, from now on, all my stories should start with "the building was on fire, and it wasn't my fault". :-)

Review of chapter "Epilogue - One Month Later" from ShyBob
Far, FAR better than "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." I really enjoyed the team spirit that you worked into the novel. There was a distinct lack of the "Xander-Stu" phenomenon, which was impressive given the range of characters involved. No limelight-stealing here. I am looking forward to the next stories in the series.
Comments from author:
Thanks. There were places where I had to re-think the situation to keep it from devolving into 'one hero dominates the setting'. And I decided not to go with the classic solution to the 'heroes each face their greatest enemy' trope: the team switch-up to get more favorable match-ups.
