Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Good chapter, and again, I do not find this cliffhanger evil - because there are things in motion to help things work out. Waiting two weeks to find out - yeah that might be evil.

Thanks for continuing!
Comments from author:
At least you know the next chapter is already written and will appear on schedule, as opposed to chapters which may or may not ever see the light of day. There are stories here that have been 'on hiatus' at cliffhanger points for over half a decade and will probably never be resolved.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
Why doesn't he get Batman and have him do it? Or is the palce all superhero proof? I am severely lacking in almost all DC knowledge except the basics. I do like Buffy's Floomba's. And I hope it isn't a horrible mutation...

Thanks for writing
Comments from author:
Lex has had run-ins with the entire Justice League, so his buildings and such are not just Clark-proof, they're everything-proof. Otherwise, why not just have the Martian Manhunter go intangible and fly into Lex's secret room, or have Flash vibrate through the walls, or have Zatanna just hit Lex with a spell to make him confess everything?

Seriously, Zatanna's power is the most broken power in all of the DCU.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from SlowMercury
Review:
Buffy continues to be awesome and the Floombas continue to be adorable. :) I'm a little sad that we probably won't get to find out Lex's reaction to Buffy and Mercy's torrid affair, but I guess we can't have everything.

If Lex doesn't know how Buffy cracked his security, how did he know she was the one who did it? Was it process of elimination? I did notice that he didn't shoot her until after she'd drawn his attention in the previous chapter, but I thought maybe he was hedging his bets. If she'd gone the "deny deny deny" route, could she have convinced Lex he was wrong? He might rather believe an unknown third party beat him instead of his seriously underestimated sex-toy. (Although having caged her and shot her up with a mutagen, he'd probably kill her anyway.)

And ha! If Clark hadn't rushed in, perhaps Buffy and Flo might've been able to rescue themselves and he would've stayed out of trouble. That's funny. :D
Comments from author:
Gee, if I didn't know any better, I'd suspect Clark likes getting hit by kryptonite. He falls for it so often...

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from MarcusRowland
Review:
I had a feeling the Roombas would come to the rescue. Clark... not so good.
Comments from author:
Honestly, Clark. You've been fried by k-lasers and kryptonite roughly 384754632626253 times in your career, and you're still falling for it?

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from ReneeMc
Review:
Go Super Floomba Happy Power! If Lex(or any other Evil Overlord for that matter) could ever understand the benefits of friends over minions he would be sooo much more dangerous. :)
Comments from author:
Villains who appreciate the benefits of friends automatically shift to anti-villain, and possibly evne slide all the way to anti-hero. Either that, or they become really awesome villains.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
OK, Luthor didn't kill Buffy's Dad, but merely allowed/encouraged it.

I _assume_ that Luthor wasn't sloppy enough to allow the inside of his "Superman proof fortress" to be visible from the outside, so its "one way mirror glass" and Supes can't see Buffy inside.
I also _assume_ that Supes wasn't stupid enough to walk into the kryptonite lasers he knew about and either protected himself or sent in a robot or an ally. OTOH maybe its a phony, a bit of psych warfare by Luthor to get her hopes up and then crush them?

Wondering how smart the robots will be when assembled and what that they will do _besides_ rescue Buffy. Maybe Supes will need rescuing?
Comments from author:
Yeah, Lex just carefully set it up to ensure wackiness would ensue.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from mendal
Review:
Are you going to have more cross dimensional show ups in other stories in this series?
Comments from author:
I really don't know. I hadn't planned to, but my muse is roughly as stable as Lindsay Lohan. :D

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from fpb
Review:
Um, pedantry corner. You can never be IN a sticky wicket, only ON one. The expression comes from the game of cricket and means an infield that has not been properly rollered or has suffered a recent fall of rain or has been played on so long that it is broken and muddy. (Sticky = muddy.) The ball becomes unpredictable in its behaviour, and the batsman is in serious trouble, because not only does playing become harder, but the ball may hit him unpredictably and anywhere. And cricket balls are solid wood and travel faster than baseball ones. So you can see that a sticky wicket can be unwelcome news.
Comments from author:
:D Thanks for the FYI. I always appreciate details like this.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from Zeviz
Review:
This was great! The idea of Buffy bypassing Superman-proof security by befriending overengineered cleaning robots is very amusing. Beware of the cleaning robot hive mind. :)

Although it looks like now Buffy will have to be rescued by more traditional superheroes.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Buffy might be in a bit of a sticky wicket.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from fpb
Review:
I can't say how much I loved the description of the kryptonite tigers and all the scary details in LL's private office. Speaking as a cartoonist, I have an itch to draw that whole scene - including Buffy "shoulder-surfing" the criminal mastermind.

Otherwise - ah well, it was all looking a bit too easy.
Comments from author:
Thanks. It's all easy if you know how. Without the Floombas, it would have been impossible.

Review:
Well, if pouting doesn't get us a faster update, how about chocolate cake? Or cheesecake? from Junior's? Or ooh, a kladdkaka!?

now I'm hungry....
Comments from author:
P!nk said about her role in "Thanks for Sharing" that the producers asked her to do the role while she was pregnant, and they brought a cheesecake. A whole cheesecake. She claimed that she said 'yes' as soon as she saw it.

BTW, she named her baby 'Willow'. Is Pink a closet Buffyfan?

JediKnight "I hope the 2 weeks time frme will be accurate."

Whereas I hope it will be inaccurate; I hope you decide to shelve 'Xendra' for the time being and post more of this next Monday instead.
Comments from author:
:D :D :D

While I do have all of the story written, I do NOT have the next story in "Cross Purposes" written, so I really don't want to get too far ahead of my publishing queue.
