Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from (Current Donor)Listener
Review:
I don't watch BBT, but I know enough to have enjoyed this story. Your writing is funny and compelling. I read through this in about two hours.

The slayer spanking line made me chuckle. But I'm not sure Faith would've really done that.

I think you may have overplayed Faith's woe-is-me angle, and Penny was treading very close to Mary Sue territory, although for all I know that's wht she's like on the show too.

Overall this was a light, enjoyable diversion.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I like to think that, other than Penny sucessfully pulling off the X/F pairing, she didn't have that many overbearing moments of triumphs. She has successfully pulled off the 'hot librarian in glasses' look in canon, although it ended with Leonard taking her straight to the bedroom. And she has certainly gotten the guys to do stuff for her that's a lot bigger than telling her how to make tea.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from HebiR
Review:
I hope your muse will re-negotiate. Still, thanks for the ride.
Comments from author:
My muse never negotiates, except in the sense that 'beating someone with a half-brick inna sock' *might* be considered negotiation. However, there is no telling what she might decide to do at some future point. At that time, I shall of course obey.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from Shadowman
Review:
I have never gotten around to watching TBBT but I am glad I read this story anyway as I found it to be a funny and very enjoyable read.
I have now read all your stories and you have yet to write a dud, please keep up the good work and have a productive muse.
Comments from author:
Thanks! Unfortunately, my muse is productive in the same way that Annie Wilkes is. :-)

Review of chapter "The Occupation Evaluation Occurrence" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I decided to check this story out to see if it was worth reading and I'm glad I did, because it definitely is! Thank you for sharing it. :)

Edited to reply: I'm glad your muse decided she wanted to go here. I'm a huge fan of crossovers and the more implausible they are and the author actually makes them work and make real sense, the better. It's great to find another author who thinks things out and figures up the logic to make something work before digging in and writing up a story. All of my favorite fan fiction authors work that way, which is what attracts me to their writing.
Comments from author:
Thanks. TBBT is more obscure than a lot of the mainstream fandoms like Twilight and HP, but it's where my muse insisted on going. She does not take no for an answer. She is the Annie Wilkes of muses. :-)

Review of chapter "The Sarcasm Neologism" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
*whistles* Wow, Penny likes to play with fire, doesn't she.

On a side note, every time you mention the demon monkey poo, I keep thinking of book six of the Dresden Files and the flaming demon monkey poo... *shakes head, then goes back to reading*

Edited to reply: sorry, I hadn't intended the above as a criticism, it made me laugh all the harder because of reminding me of that particular opening line and all. I know Joss put the flying demon monkeys in specifically as a reference to the Oz books and movie and all, but I'm afraid I'm much more of a Dresden fan and such things as demon monkeys and demon monkey poo just automatically make me think of the opening of "Blood Rites"
Comments from author:
"The building was on fire, and I didn't do it." Yeah, I thought about that too. Still, this has to count as Andrew's signature move, given that he supposedly summoned flying monkey demons on a Sunnydale High stage production when he was 15 or 16.

Everyone who ever saw 'The Wizard of Oz' loves flying demon monkeys. Or is terrified of them.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
LMAO! Pure brilliance and well worth staying up until a quarter to three in the morning to finish! I'd have been much better off to save it for later, but I couldn't resist. Thank you for sharing this, it made my night!

If Joss Whedon and the folks who produce BBT ever decided to get together to actually film a crossover with BtVS, it could only hope to be as hilarious as this. You were spot on with the characterizations and the dialog.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you enjoyed it. I find it's a good sign when a reader can't put the story down, because that's what I do with good fiction. Which is why my S.O. occasionally has to say, "Hey, it's 3 am, are you coming to bed or not?" :-)

Review of chapter "The Manuscript Conscript Crisis" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I think you broke Sheldon. Poor guy, I think this is exactly how that character would react to the situation and I felt horrified for him at the same time I was laughing.

Review of chapter "The Crack Payback Counterattack" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I loved the comedy interspersed with the action. Nicely done!

Also, don't sweat the rant below this. Someone obviously has their panties in a twist and wanted to lash out, otherwise I'm sure that scathing bit of commentary would've been clicked to be for the author's eyes only, or they could've just used the back button if the crossover or writing wasn't to their taste. Very sad to see that was from a Mod.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from (Moderator)JoeHundredaire
Review:
I haven't read the rest of this because I find BBT to be hideously condescending to pretty much every nerd fandom and I'd rather not tune in - and put money in peoples' pockets via advertisers - to see stuff that I'm familiar with or a fan of played as a "aren't these people cute, they think they're human" sort of laugh. That being said...

This chapter at a minimum is a hideous backslide as far as the quality and ability I saw in the last piece of yours I read. Descriptive imagery is non-existent as best I can tell, and most sentences are fairly formulaically 'name verb, "string of dialogue of varying length"' with no real variety to them. Out of the last ten 'paragraphs' of the story, seven are comprised solely of this. Two more follow that formula with less than ten words of a secondary action tacked on somewhere: one in the middle of the paragraph and one at the end.

Honestly? If you don't have something ready to post on the schedule you seem intent on adhering to when you post any story? Don't demean yourself by posting a lesser product. Wait until you have something worthwhile, and post it then.

Review of chapter "The Emolument Argument" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Oh, lord...this story is one of the best pick-me-ups ever written. I can't help but laugh out loud and grin like a loon at parts of this! Thank you.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you're enjoying it. The characters give me a lot of flexibility and creativity.

Review of chapter "The Reception Deception Dilemma" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
LMAO! You have all of the character's voices down perfect. I didn't know how a crossover between these two fandoms would really work, but this is brilliant.
Comments from author:
Well, I had to work out in my head how the two universes could integrate before I could write even the first chapter. You'll see what I had in mind.

Review of chapter "The Condescending Comprehending Ending" from saa
Review:
Excellent story. I liked the interaction between Buffy and Sheldon.
Comments from author:
As they say in D & D, Sheldon is a High Int low Wis character. He and Buffy are a study in contrasts, including the whole 'science vs. supernatural' backstory issues.
