Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part IV" from MarcusRowland
Review:
Weaponized floombas... Lex will be REALLY annoyed he didn't think of it first.
Comments from author:
And he'll be extra-annoyed that Buffy's name for them has stuck.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
I was checking back on this story because I was sure Buffy and Willow had mentioned Giles to the others in 'The League of Extraordinary Women', and I thought that Daniel's visit to Giles in this story would prove it, but I didn't find the positive proof for which I was looking. What I did find, however, was you referring to 'Akkadian Greek' again (as you did in 'Xander and the Missing Scenes') and, like in that story, you should correct it to 'Achaean Greek'.

PS: Congratulations on reaching 200 recs for 'TSROAM'.
Comments from author:
Dang! Thanks for catching that egregious error. I appreciate feedback like that, evne if most authors may not.

And thank you. I could not have gotten to 200 recs without a lot of great readers who are willing to put up with all of my various peccadilloes, obsessions, eccentricities, etc.

You have provided valuable feedbacks, plainly stating what you liked, and what you *disliked*. I cannot get better if no one ever tells me what I am doing wrong!

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from Zeviz
Review:
Here you go, the Floombas theme song, based on Wonder Woman:

Wonder Floombas! Wonder Floombas!
Buffy Summers' waiting for you,
And the power you posess.

In your metal case,
Dirt would be disgrace,
But your mind awoke through friendship true.

Wonder Floombas! Wonder Floombas!
Buffy Summers' waiting for you,
And the wonder you can do.

You can clean the floor,
Open any door,
Easily bring Buffy through.

Wonder Floombas!
Get her out from under, Wonder Floombas.
All her hopes are pinned on you,
And the wonders that you do.

Stop the lasers cold,
Make Lex Luthor fold,
Wake your mind, and change the world.

Wonder Floombas! Wonder Floombas!
You're a wonder, Wonder Floombas!

What do you think? (If you don't like something, or even everything, please let me know.)

PS After listening to "Believe it or not", it sounds like it could work for Floombas with no changes at all. :)
Comments from author:
:D :D I like it! Thank you.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from Zeviz
Review:
Any suggestions for the starting point for the Floomas theme song? :) (I am not very familiar with TV shows and their theme music, but I like modifying song lyrics, so if you have an idea where to start, I'll try to make one.)

EDIT: Thanks. I like your start, so I'll see what I can do...
Comments from author:
Wonder Floombas!
Wonder Floombas!
Buffy Summers waits for you
and the powers you possess
stopping villans mean
keeping floors all clean
polishing the flatware toooooooo!

If you don't want to try the Wonder Woman theme song as a filk base, how about "Believe it or not" which was the theme music for "The Greatest American Hero"?

Thanks! Are there by any chance some chapters that didn't get posted on TtH? Inquiring minds want to know!"

Glad its still around, after looking for it but being unable to find it.

Noting that the last update on it was 23 months ago.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from Zorgdub
Review:
Buffy, Lex, Clark, Lois, Jimmy, Perry, all the characters sound distinctive and true to their established personality. I could totally hear Perry talking in his voice from The New Adventures of Superman.

How do you even *do* that with characters that only have a couple of lines?

We're not worthy!


Then Buffy's snark and the floombas refusing to leave her and supes being smart and the deliciously evil cliffhanger.




This is so great.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I have voices in mind for Jimmy and Perry from the original live-action Superman tv show, so that makes them easuer to write. As for Lois, I prefer Lois of tNAS to the Lois of the original tv show or the Lois of 'Lois and Clark' or the Lois of the first Superman movies.

If you have a voice or a voice actor in mind, it's a lot easier to 'hear' the person talk as you write. Well, at least it's easier for me. So I can always write Willow Rosenberg. But Aquerna is a character of my own creation, so getting her voice right (and being satisfied with it) is a lot harder.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from dcarson
Review:
Now what do you do with the floombas. Have the courts ruled that AIs are people so the hive mind can just walk off. If not where do you hide them so they don't get reclaimed as stolen property. Yeah Lex will hopefully have bigger problems but Lex won't pass up the chance to get revenge.

There is a job they are ideal for but would never be allowed. Helping Alfred, but Bruce would never trust them. Maybe enhanced Buffy will have a HQ that needs minions.
Comments from author:
Surely the JLA Watchtower could use some cleaning robots. :D (Bruce would have a cow!)

First of all, good chapter.

Second, the Xander & Zoey fic can be found over on fanfiction.net, but it's STILL incomplete.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from DieselDriver
Review:
Hate to say it but what's with the interlude length chapter? And "asshat"? is someone channeling Jericho?

Edit to your reply: Ok, I apologize for that. I get so used to the longer chapters in your other stories that I forget. I REALLY like the longer chapters. I doubt I would like them as much if it weren't for your writing.

From your reply to Amberdrake:

OMG!!! ""No problem. I just ran through him at .9c and disintegrated him. Next problem?""

Him and Flash with the super fast speeding abilities. The shock wave of him going through the atmosphere at .9c would probably wipe out EVERYTHING within at least 100 miles on either side of his path. Same with the Flash. The energies involved are ridiculously high. I have no idea how to figure them so I didn't. But I imagine that I'm actually below the damage level in my guess.

An aside: Have you heard anything or has there been any progress on the Whately/Crystal Hall situation?
Comments from author:
All chapters in "Cross Purposes" are roughly this length. (Okay, a few ran long and a couple ran short.)

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
re
"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."

****
Not just cliffhangers, I have run across _many_ long incomplete fics that I wanted more of. Forex a "woke up in Vegas" starring Xander & Zoey Bartlett (West Wing) that I really liked that sat inactive for a couple of years then apparently got deleted. I _really_ wanted to see President Bartlett's reaction when found out about "the nightlife" and details about the Initiative.

Hey! I liked that story! You mean it's not just dead, it's gone off the site? {pouts}

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part III" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Oh, no! Looks like Buffy and Flo may have to rescue Superman!

Here's hoping that Lex's attempt to mutate Buffy results in her having even MORE strength, skill, and smarts that she already has in this particular world. :)
Comments from author:
She's already pretty darn smart. She's outsmarted Batman and Lex Luthor both in just a handful of months. That makes her already one of the most dangerous people in the DCU, doesn't it? :D

A fantastic job of getting a lot of plot into 6 pages and done real well. This applies to all the other chapters also.

He outsmarts the wall then forgets the lasers?
Comments from author:
What is the deal with Clark anyway? He canonically has this problem, because otherwise there would be no storylines.
"Oh no, Starro is back!"
"No problem. I just ran through him at .9c and disintegrated him. Next problem?"
