Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Faux arch-villainess "The Slayer" (with nifty and soon-to-be-armed Floomba friends/accessories, sold separately)! I love it! :)
Comments from author:
So first she has to build some street cred. Then she has to come up with a reason to run into Stitches Denetto...

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from Difdi
Review:
> “Okay Flo, get… Lemme see, he’s probably about 270, 280…

Actually, he's about 850. Kryptonian bodies are a LOT more dense than humans -- there's a reason Superman flies through deep water instead of trying to swim.
Comments from author:
I found that Kal-El's mass keeps getting retconned. He has been 'officially' listed as pretty much everything from 270 up to 850. Since Buffy had to use pretty much all her Floombas, you know I'm pegging his weight in-story as near your number.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from Gideon
Review:
Great work! Interesting to see your Buffy here comment on Batman's attitude and the downside of being a female hero. I hope Buffy and Batman can slowly gain some mutual respect as they see how competent the other is in their chosen areas of expertise. I'm sure Batman isn't looking forward to Buffy's debut as a masked villain but he needs someone to keep things interesting. I hope he won't try to damage her weaponised floombas when they clash later - Buffy wouldn't like that!
Comments from author:
Batman ought to be seeing Buffy as competent in her areas, since he has seen canon!Buffy in action. DCU Buffy sees Bats as a brooding jerk who boinked a supervillain and then just let her loose to prey on innocent billionaires. Until she learns something more about that - like maybe that Catwoman has gone straight because of Bats - she will continue to see him in a poor light.

Review of chapter "The OSI and a Computer Nerd’s Husband" from hamishog
Review:
My most favorite chapter ever. The Rosenberg - Harris consortium kicks major tuckus and fits together like Legos. And this is not even mentioning how much I despise Dr. Franklin. Jamie Sommers took out two fembots but Willow and Xander took out fifteen. The OSI is so lucky they only use their powers for good.
Comments from author:
I always enjoyed it when Dr. Franklin's 'brilliant' plans got smashed into little pieces. But pretty much all 'Bionic Woman' villains tended to be unrepentant creeps who deserved to get serious smackdowns. There wasn't a lot of 'shades of gray' in there.

Review of chapter "The Justice Leaguer and a Carpenter" from hamishog
Review:
Another prime chapter in a long, long list. I love Xander - he's so...human. He screws up. He makes bad choices. He makes mistakes. And he lives with them. He, also, has the courage of his convictions and the will to stand and fight. He's an inspiration.
Your White Knight is a perfect analog for Xander in the DC Universe - driven by emotions, not for vengeance, but to protect. And, sometimes, the best defense can be very offensive. He's no analyst and if he solves a crime it would most likely use inductive, rather than deductive reasoning. And he's a brawler. But he's Xander and he just won't quit. Texas Ranger Captain Bill McDonald once said 'you can't stop a man who knows he's right and just keeps on coming.'
Comments from author:
Thanks. When I thought about a DCU version of Xander, this just clicked.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from Rich
Review:
" she sort of had a history of doing stupid stuff when she got mad at someone"; seems to be a Slayer trait in any universe.

This was a nice little story.
Comments from author:
Thanks! Did you notice that Buffy is hating on Bruce for being dark and obsessive, while she... went and did the Batman thing without even realizing it. Her father died, and she devoted all her considerable talents into becoming someone who was a party girl on the outside and a determined investigator and crimefighter on the inside.

Review of chapter "The OSI and a Computer Nerd" from hamishog
Review:
I liked this piece so much I copied it and put it in its own file so that I can read it again and again. It's a perfect example of why the Willow/Xander dynamic is so overlooked - they support each other. They DEFINE each other. They fit together so well there are no seams, which is why they were regarded as boring couple by corporate teevee. Pfui! Fie upon them, I say. What worked on How I Met Your Mother could easily have worked on Buffy. And Agatha Christie, Nick and Nora Charles, and Hart to Hart have all proven that compatible couples can work in the entertainment industry. Anyway, these two work. And Willow Harris is a perfect example of an empowered woman. She may define herself by her marriage to Xander but it is SHE who defines herself. She doesn't allow others to do so. She has what she wants and she intends to keep it. Beautiful. I can't remember where I read it though I believe it was in a BtVS fanfic but it was Willow who said if you have a choice between power and love choose love. Willow the Wicked Wicca may be very powerful but I don't think she'd turn down this woman's life.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I agree that W/X was considered too boring for tv drama. But Xander and Willow are best friends who have so much in common, and that's what makes for a long-lasting relationship. On tv, relationships must be torrid and passionate before being smashed apart painfully.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from hamishog
Review:
I'm only writing this so you'll know how cool I think you are cause anything that drives The Bat up the wall is okay by me. Plus, we have Superman doing the damsel in a dress routine and Buffy and The Flash doing Burns & Allen. You are so very, very cool. I wonder if she's going to go up against Carter and her graviton powers? Wow, Justice League versus Samantha Carter - slugfest extra-ordinaire.
But the thing that I would really like to see is a team-up in L.A. - The Slayer and The White Knight. That's just got to happen. Although, sentimental sap that I am, my favorite chapter, so far, is Jamie Summers and Professor Willow Harris versus the femdroids. I really love what Xander can do to logic circuits. And, quite frankly, true love. Big fan. Totally unrealistic but like Douglas Adams says - in an infinite universe the one thing you cannot afford is a sense of proportions. Thank you, so very much.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm always happy to see reviews. And I certainly wouldn't object if you dropped a recommendation on the story for the Jaime/Willow section.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from Zorgdub
Review:
The Slayer is a supervillain-sounding name, so it's the one she uses as she infiltrates Intergang by pretending to be a supervillain. Genius.
Comments from author:
"Slayer? Umm, are you a killer, or are you a groupie of an old heavy metal band?" (insert noise as Buffy's fist meets someone's jaw)

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from cmdruhura
Review:
Since Mr. Broody knows that other-Buffy is The Slayer, it won't take him a millisecond to figure out who the new supervillainess is. Though with the Floombas flying her around she'd be closer to the Green Goblin.

I agree with all her comments about Die Fledermaus.
Comments from author:
The Green Goblin? Please! Buffy has style. Maybe the Teal Goblin. :D

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from VillageOrchid
Review:
A delightful surprise to read this chapter today (I know it is Monday but it is sort of like a second Sunday).
Comments from author:
Thanks! And now you can look forward to Agent Liz Summers of the NID and her meeting with Senator Kinsey.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from Zeviz
Review:
Very nice. This Buffy's PoV is quite amusing, and this is a great conclusion to this story. (Unless you write about "The Slayer" infiltrating another evil group.)
Comments from author:
I have no idea if my muse will one day give me an inspiration for a sequel to this story, probably while wielding a spiked baseball bat. Because my muse is like that.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
I'm surprised that Superman wasn't prepared for the K-lasers. He could have worn a lead suit or planned to somehow destroy the lasers _before_ entering the building, or both. Forex, Image of him smashing the wall, then backing out of laser range and using projectiles or his heat vision to thin out the lasers, then using a lead shield or suit to safely get inside and destroy the remaining ones. Less dramatic than just charging in as he did, but _much_ smarter.

Wondering about Batman's reaction when he hears of her new code name.....

re
"Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!"

Wondering how many readers know the origin of that slogan?
Comments from author:
Supes absolutely should have been prepared for the k-lasers.

And I suspect that a big percentage of my readers will know the origin of that slogan. Holy preposterous proportions, Batman!

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from Harry
Review:
So, B is now a superheroine, eh? Interesting to say the least. And if she is willing to state the Luthor told her that he created Doomsday, that would be enough to put him behind bars for a LONG TIME! And calling Batman B: SO reminds me of Faith!
Comments from author:
Well, *maybe* she's a superheroine. But she's going to play a supervillain. And we know how that usually turns out in the DCU.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from (Current Donor)ColBlack
Review:
Yay! Buffy's a Slayer! Now, the only question that remains is, when she dies (for the first time), will another be Called?
Love Buffy calling Batman 'B' - Faith's influence obvious here. I want to more of Batman being called B - his reactions will be hilarious.


And I've been refreshing the 'latest' page far too often since I knew there was an update coming out today.
Comments from author:
I figured this was the best outcome of about four dozen outcomes I envisioned for this particular crossover.

And Batman absolutely needs more people giving him $h!t. I blame Frank Miller for the modern Psycho!Batman.
