Blue Belle: Director's Cut

Review of chapter "Chapter 17" from InsanitySorrow
Review:
I read the first version of Blue Belle before and I had to say I like this version better. Mainly because the Emma/Jean pairing and the insanity the pairing brought to the world in whole. They are some good Emma/Jean pairing before but you're the first one that make Rachel as NOT a summer and actually part Frost. Wonder how the rest of X-men will react to the news. *snicker* Considering that I'm don't really remember which universe you used in this story, I cannot even predict how Ororo will react as in Canon, other than Kitty she the other person who quite known as Anti-Emma in the group.

PS : By the way, in chapter 16 you make Emma decide to ask Bruce to increase Jean diet. Who Bruce in the first place? And will Jean finally known about her future relationship with Emma?
Comments from author:
Well, a lot of Ororo's anger with Emma stems from an Earth-616 event that's not relevant because it never happened in the Earth-199999 universe. That and... well, I haven't even pondered how people outside of Scott and James/Logan will react to the news, and they're easy to predict because they each have a personal stake in things.

"Bruce" would be Bruce Banner. You wouldn't like him when he's angry... because he always backs up his rage with facts and documented sources. He is... the Credible Hulk.

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Oakheart
Review:
Am loving this! The fact that Cordelia rides, even directs, the wave of insanity is perfectly simple: this is what being Queen is all about. Not letting the fluster reach your face. The Emma in pursuit (or at least consideration) of Jean is quite in character - nobody will dictate to her what she may or may not have; her decision will remain her prerogative. Jean, even considering extended interactions with Emma, is a nice advancement of character past the canonical Jean (and Jean/Scott pairing). All in all, fun and challenging.

Comments from author:
Yeah, this branches off after X-Men and so it's still Scott+Jean=OTP in canon. If I want to do Emma+Jean, I'll need to deal with that because I'm not one of those lazy people who'll go "Oh, that's inconvenient, in this version of the movie, Jean was single and secretly a lesbian" or something.

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Eureka
Review:
Sooo which of the girls is gonna slap Michelle first? I mean she keeps flipping back to her guy (Xander) mind and Maybe Wills is gonna come outta the closet sooner than cannon???
Oh and THANK YOU for the e-mail.
Comments from author:
Keep in mind that the girls are used to far worse at school; Michelle's relatively tame, recognizes that she's inappropriate, and is mildly regretful about it. So she's got more to worry about from the Cordettes than the telepaths.

And you're welcome. She's adorable, isn't she?

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Ben
Review:
" Michelle sniffed a few more times. Swiss cheese and grilled onions too. That eliminated most of the suspects: Burger King didn't have anything with Swiss cheese this month, nor did McDonald's, and the lack of accompanying chicken smell meant it couldn't be from Doublemeat Palace even if they did offer something with onions and Swiss. That left Jack in the Box or a to-go order from a real restaurant."

Do you mean to say that Sunnydale doesn't have a Hardees or Carl, Jr?
Comments from author:
No to Hardee's, and I completely forgot to check for Carl's Jr. locations because that's not a chain we have out here. Turns out the city has three. I'll make a note of that for future usage, though.

EDIT: The version of this chapter posted to remove the note (as I always do when I post the next chapter) will mention three Carl's Jr./Green Burrito locations in Sunnydale, matching Santa Barbara. Hardees, according to my friends, is just a separate branding for the same store when it's in different parts of the country. Green Burrito similarly becomes Red Burrito when it's in a Hardees location.

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Markelo
Review:
Pretty good job at keeping the BtVS characters in character. LOL If I was there I would be ROTFLMAO at Rachel's comment. LOL
Comments from author:
Rachel's definitely one of my favorite parts of the new version...

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from MarcusRowland
Review:
"Knowing that it would crush Scott's spirit was just a bonus in Emma's mind."

OK, eight out out ten on the Evil Overlord scale there, it'd be a ten but there should be a "Bwa ha ha" in there or at least a maniacal giggle. And she forgot to add something equivalent to the Conan "Und the wailing and lamentation of their women..." bit.
Comments from author:
I dunno, I think Emma's got a bit too much class to do the evil laugh... :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Darkstrider
Review:
Ah, another wonderful chapter. Not entirely sure how the spontaneous nudity came about, but I'm not complaining! Great stuff. Can't wait for the confrontation between Xander/Michelle and Raven. Funtimes!
Comments from author:
It's a bit of a winknod for people deeply familiar with Marvel canon; Jean (and Rachel) can perform subatomic telekinesis when they're in full control of the Phoenix Force. The power is exactly what it sounds like: transfiguration and conjuration by manipulating the matter and even air around them. So... Jean's subconscious here decided to get extra close to Emma in the middle of the night and underwear disappeared into thin air. ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Raider
Review:
as always.. awesome.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Trying to get Lexi to do E/J art but she's doing Seasons stuff and so she's avoiding outside E/J art to keep her mind on her project.

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from BoosterBronze
Review:
Gotta love Rachel, she's tied with Betsy for breakout new character in this version of Blue Belle for me. She takes Willows argument about hereditary mutations and crushes it too bits. Makes sense too, while single powers, might have some overlap without a genetic relation (though usually with a fair degree in variance of both how their portrayed, their general strength, and capabilities), getting into multiple mutations, that argument becomes more and more invalid. Claws, and and an extreme level of regeneration, mixed with berserker tendencies (albeit, whether or not that qualifies as a mutation or a personality quirk, I can't say.) is pretty damning in it's own right.

Curious about Rachel's apparent ruby/diamond form, given it's non-opaque nature. Probably tied to nothing more than hair color, but it makes me wonder what if any differences, even if only visibility, it might have with Emma, and from what I understand in this fic, the cuckoo's.

Emma and Jean are adorable. I can't really think of any other way to put it.
Comments from author:
Yeah, it's really obvious to us but to Willow... well, she's got a good argument. It's wrong, but still a good argument.

Rachel's made of corundum that, while obviously not flawlessly clear like a diamond, can be fairly translucent depending on the quality of the sample. So people can see inside her and through her, but they have an easier time of it with the Five-in-One and Emma.

And I second that emotion with Emma and Jean. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from (Current Donor)Clavell
Review:
Alright, it looks like business is starting to pick up, as they say :). Willow reacts to her blackout about the way one would expect her to, as well as her reaction to realizing that she shares some things in common with a Polgara. And her reaction to who her real dad is is perfect Denial!Willow. Excellent work, as always.
Comments from author:
Well, logically it could be someone other than Logan. I mean, there are multiple mutants who share a power pool (Betsy, Ivette, Rachel) and so it's not a guarantee... but on the other hand, it is a possibility and so she should keep an open mind...

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from shazamfan
Review:
I'm really enjoying the budding relationship that is just starting between Emma and Jean. I think that is yet another thing that improves on this Belle tale over the last, along with Michelle using her shifting powers more and other little things that just add up to a far more fun tale to read.

Looking forward to the public outing for Cordy as a mutant.

-j-
Comments from author:
Yeah. I never really had a plan for the original apart from "what weird shit and traditional BtVS/X-Men crossover lampshading can do I next?!" and it suffered because of it. Then again, I didn't think to use Rachel until now, so some of the better shit inevitably comes from that...

And Cordy won't get outed until Chapter 18 under this version. Next, we find out more about Rachel... and meet Cordelia's aunt and one of her cousins.

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Jimbobob
Review:
Another fun chapter. The scene with Jean and Emma was quite fun.

Now I'm curious if Rachel detected Michelle's thoughts and shifted to answer the unasked question, or if they're being attacked by something.
Comments from author:
Well, she is a telepath... and Emma's daughter...

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from Orchamus
Review:
Huh, the scene with Emma and Jean was kinda cozy. Nicely done there, just a touch more and Jean would have been bolting out of bed lol. The cliffhanger was nice too, rather surprised at the red crystal form.
Comments from author:
Emma knows exactly how far she can push without getting in trouble. After all, she knows exactly what Jean's thinking...

Review of chapter "Chapter 16" from (Recent Donor)Deamondeathstone
Review:
So this Rachel is a cross between canon Rachel and Ruby Summers from Bishop's reality power-wise? Without Ruby's optical blasts of course, seeing that she got those from daddy and he's uninvolved in the making of this Rachel.
Comments from author:
Essentially. We'll get more details on how her transmorph form stacks up compared to her half-sisters' forms in the next chapter, but for all intents and purposes she is a full power pool fusion of Emma and Jean.
