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.

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.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Love Buffy figuring out how to boost the smarts and win the allegiance of the flying cleaning robots, but argh! you expect me to wait two weeks to find out what happens next? So cruel!

*pouts in best imitation bimbo fashion*

Still adamant about that schedule, in spite of my pout, eh? Well, it was worth a shot!

Ooh, if you'd kept it up another couple minutes, I would have folded! :D

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Nice twist on the idea of using the servants that can get anywhere unnoticed, but ouch. Buffy's in a bit of trouble.

Right now, I'm thinking it was one of two scenarios: One, that there were protections she missed in going after the computer or Two, that it was all a test as to whether she would be loyal to Lex or not. Possibly both.

Hopefully the Floomba going to Clark gets there in time. Assuming she survives this, I'm wondering if her actions will get her an invite to one of the Super teams-- maybe even the Bat clan where Bruce and/or Selina can keep an eye on her.

Edit: When you described the Floombas, I was actually reminded of the DRD's from Farscape.
Comments from author:
Lex's HQ is extremely Supes-resistant. I never got why Clark didn't ask someone else to step up and handle the Luthor-related problems. "Hey Martian Manhunter, you're not doing anything right now, right? No family to go home to? Check. How about you walk through the Lexcorp walls past all that kryptonite and take care of this for me? ... Great, I'll just take Lois out to a nice dinner."

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from texaswookie
Review:
Man, what is it with you and cliffhangers this week? First Alex is stuck in a giant bouncy ball and now Buffy gets zapped.
Comments from author:
I'm just a cliffhanger-y type. Consider that I wrote the Alex cliffhanger months ago and the Buffy one weeks ago, and you'll realize that I spend a lot of my writing time telling my muse, "No, you already put enough cliffies in this story arc! Ow! Stop it! Ouch!"

And yes, that's really what it sounds like inside my head, only with more whining and kvetching. :D

Review:
A gestalt floomba AI... great idea! Evil cliffhanger though... but Lex is not easy to outsmart, even for this Buffy. Can't wait for the next part, well done!

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from DieselDriver
Review:
To think that Lex wouldn't have a secret method of checking on his systems or passageways or whatever or 3 secret methods or 20, well, it got her zapped.

Sheesh, it could very well have been the "Floombas" programed to go to him if ever ordered to leave the building.
Comments from author:
You just know Lex has more security than any rational person would consider.

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
re
"This short story is only four pieces. The plan is for the next story after that to be a sequel to "SG-1 and a Spy". Which would mean more Buffy."

****

OK, four pieces. But does that count include the previous "Daddy's Girl" or only the the "Golddigger" fics? IOW one or two more before Buffy dies (messily w or w/o damaging or bringing down Lex), triumphs, or merely survives (failing to hurt Lex) to try again another day.

It occurs to me that in _merely_ getting all of Lex's financial records Buffy missed major opportunities to hurt Lex. Think about her getting into his criminal R&D records or his personal "supercriminal logs". Image of a jury hearing his monologs about his more spectacular criminal exploits, complete with mentions of how many people got killed. Or how about Lex's allies and enemies reading about his view of their relations.
Comments from author:
[1] I wasn't counting the early "Daddy's Girl" chapter.

[2] Buffy went into this thinking Lex was a ruthless industrialist. She didn't realize that he was also one of the major supervillains of the universe (basically only the JL and some of their partners know that).

Lex really doesn't like to be interrupted when he's chewing poeple out, does he?
Comments from author:
Lex has a lot of personality flaws. That's why he got elected President. :D

Review of chapter "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger, part II" from Harry
Review:
Buffy, you both won and lost. You won in getting the information out to those that can use it to destroy Luthor. You lost because Lex figured out that you were doing something and decided to knock you out, to figure out just what you were up to. Better hope you can withstand pain Buffy, or have Faith on standby to bail you out. You are going to be in for some SERIOUS pain!

Hey, it's the DCU. There's tons of backup around Metropolis.
