Review of chapter "New Acquisitions and Mergers" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Review:
A bit too cut and paste with the possessions. Really you should have made a show of it with vivid imagery and ego battles, hints and clues rather than straight out point and click.
Comments from author:
probably but it started out as a one-shot as most of my things do. I didn't really think about the possessions and the internals...

Review of story "Murder, Mayhem, and Magic!" from eriktheviking
Review:
I almost feel sorry for Wilkins, having to deal with your well written insanity of the group.
Comments from author:
*Mwahahahahahaha!!!!!* I's EVIL!!!!

Thank you very much for the complement. I'm actually used to navigating similar insanity in regular life so translating it to text is less of a juggling act and more a matter of managing to remember the characters, their pasts, their personalities, and their current abilities or skill levels while accounting for any wounds and hang-ups. Then I toss it into a pot drop a proverbial scorpion in and watch them scramble. Its safer and less harmful than doing it to real people not to mention amusing. Of course I turn the same tactics loose on those who try to force me to dance to their tune and control me. Then I just have fun screwing with them since they brought it on themselves and I usually give them ample warning.

Am I actually evil? I doubt it. Am I a vicious bitch at times? Definitely. Which is why I try to avoid those situations, they bring out the vicious bitch that I try to keep caged. Rather like Xander's Hyena... which is a bit of a scary comparison but accurate none-the-less. Am I insane? Quite possibly, but I'm not sure that I care any more.

I apologize for the unasked for digression into the weirdness of my mind. Feel free to ignore it and return to blissful ignorance.

I'm glad that you're enjoying the story. As for Wilkins... he's an evil sorcerer who's extended his life by making large human sacrifices to the various demons he's got deals with along with some massively black magics. I very much doubt that he will receive a pleasant welcome upon his death. *smirk*

Review of story "Murder, Mayhem, and Magic!" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
Review:
Well interesting, I like that you are not planning to give the Scoobies or the Mayor the Crown...you could give it to Riddick to fight whatever is killing planets.
Because frankly if Riddick sticks around with his fleet things get easy (unless things get VERY hard, but then its not a story about the Scoobies its a galactic level war saga). Or if he takes the Scoobies with him the world ends...to many times they saved the world and I don't see Joyce or Giles going for that. Riddick as the ruler of the Necromongers is just too powerful to fit into a Buffyverse story except as the main character.

So...you need to get rid of the Crown or tone it down to the point where it is not a balance destroyer, AND you need to keep Riddick from taking over the story. You have done this so far by keeping him on the sidelines but he is now close enough that the strategy you have used to this point stops working, especially since you have him expressing that he is going to take his pack away with him when he gets to them. Now depending on what you have coming the other way toward earth either a remnant of the Necromongers or something just as bad you have a built in distraction for both Riddick and the Crown.

The other alternative for the crown is to dump it in a black-hole or on the surface of a gas giant...which might or might not work. Black-hole has the better chance since with time-dilation it would take the Crown quite a bit of external time to get out even if it could teleport right away.

Great chapters, interesting conversation with the Mayor...
Comments from author:
Yup, that about sums it up. The Setting was trying to force its way in because I haven't actually written down the original story that it comes from yet... XP

The Setting is starting to drive me a bit nuts since someone pointed out that it started to detract from the story (Not to mention they were unintentionally becoming the main focus). So, I took a step back and really looked at it and concluded that the person was right. I also noticed at about the same time that it was waaayyyy over powered. Now that's fine if there's something to balance it and you use a light touch but I've always been a bit heavy handed in my writing. *sheepish*

As to the destruction... Black hole is really only a delaying tactic, surface of a gas giant... what surface? A gas giant has no actual ground. Its gas through and through. If there was a bit more concentration and mass/gas to it, it would become a star. Admittedly it would be a very small star like a proto-dwarf or something. I've forgotten the name of what it would actually become but it would be a real star. Just think, if the multiple gas giants in our solar system collided and combined, we'd be a binary system and the planet would likely be torn apart by the gravitational forces of the two stars while everything found a new orbit... huh. That's a good threat. Many gas giants actually have enough (or close enough that it doesn't matter) mass to become a star just not the right pressure level in the center of the planet to trigger a fusion reaction... Many astronomers (if I'm remembering my astronomy class info right) think that Jupiter almost actually did become a star. I can't remember much else on the subject...

Dumping it into another dimension isn't really a possibility for a number of reasons.... I don't think that any of the Setting has a really solid link with time or other realities except for Dawn since she's the Key....

Well any way, I'm glad that you liked the material. I was kinda wary about that conversation but I figured why not use it to try and deal with the Setting, maybe even bring Riddick into the mess... Maybe I'll kill off the Necros...
