Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from Zorgdub
~~[ Then he turned his head toward one of the concrete walls so he could get his voice to reflect around the garage like some sort of tera-ventriloquism. ]~~

Is ... is this a reference to superman's silly superpower of super-ventriloquism? Is so, bravo, that was a very good one.

Glad to see Batman being awesome and stuff. You don't capture the Batman, the Batman captures *you*.

~~[ The guy was afraid. He was maybe 240 pounds, and he had a taser, and he was scared of a petite 5’2” girl.

He had damn well better be afraid of her, because she was going to slice him in half. ]~~
When she concluded that she was screwed at the end of last chapter, my reaction was along the lines of "Nope, *they* are screwed, the poor sods are underestimating Buffy. Things never end well for bad guys who underestimate Buffy."

And it was magnificently confirmed here. Via awesome figure-skating fighting. Why haven't I ever seen something like this before? It was amazing.

~~[ She loudly announced, “I’m Buffy… the Empire Slayer.” ]~~
The puns, they are killing me. Need. Air.
Comments from author:
[1] Yes, I had Supes' legendary super-ventriloquism in mind when I wrote that.
[2] Bad guys who underestimate little Buffys usually end up regretting it. For an extremely short period of time before they're toast.
[3] I planned that scene and that pun a looooooong time ago.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from (Current Donor)deiticlast
I honestly don't know why I keep getting surprised at how good this story is with each chapter, but I for some reason do! I'm guessing, though, that it has something to do with the fact that with each chapter, you somehow bring about events in such a way as they are totally unexpected, and they are extremely well written. I definitely have some favorite moments from this story, but overall, you keep topping what you did in the last scene! I am a fan, and greedily await more. . .

I've been setting up Buffy's scene and her line for a long time.

Not yet! I don't plan to start publishing it until after I wrap TSRoAM. But I already have one heck of a queue ready.

No, not Shar! Hoping that there is a Iron Giant ending coming up.

Sorry. She's not a robot who somehow was blow into a million pieces but avoided taking any damage on any of those pieces.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from bookalicious
Awesome! But now my boyfriend thinks I'm weird. As per my usual Saturday routine, I watch Doctor Who, then I read the latest TSRoAM. It was totally worth it for that one line.

And anyone who thinks the Macks will be a soft target or a one-trick pony (with or without Alex close by) will be painfully surprised. Wednesday suddenly feels like a long time off...
Comments from author:
Thanks. And we should be defined by our 'weird' passions as much as by our other activities. Go Whovians!

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from DieselDriver
That's just the most outrageous, terrible, horrible really cool thing anyone could have said anywhere any time. You are so bad. You wrote this whole thing just so you could have her say that didn't you???
Comments from author:
I have been setting up that scene and that line for a very long time. Now you can go back to the earliest mentions of Buffy and see how long I have been setting this up.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from hmhughes
I hate fight scenes. Always have. I would just gloss over them because I believe that a fight screen isn't the a whole story *unless that is the story* and keep on reading. But yours I've read because of being afraid of missing important part of the story, even though I hate them.

That said, this was written so well, that I didn't even realize that I had read a fight scene until the end because I felt like I was there. I didn't get lost in the discretion with unfamiliar words because you explained in a way that didn't stop the story. I sat on the end of my seat up until the end, not seeing words, but a movie.

Thank you
Comments from author:
Thanks! I tried to hit a nice medium between 'too many obscure skating terms unless you're Johnny Weir' and 'too much explanation that will bog everything down'.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from MarcusRowland
OK, I was with it up to the last sentence, but seriously? Who says that?

All right, maybe Buffy does, but it's not going to help her with the authorities.

And I'd guessed that we were going to have an ice skating fight, so pleased I was right!
Comments from author:
That may not have been Buffy's best strategy with the police, but it's a great tactic with her fans. And everyone knows reality tv starlets manage not to go to jail, at least while they're headlining the show.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from hamishog
Here's hoping that Buff's Freddy will surprise her. But you are a bad, bad person 'cause you have been waiting 225 chapters to use that line. And that is a beautiful line.
I hope Jack and Willow are okay. If they're not okay then I think Empire will find out pretty quick. It's one of my favorite lines out of a Bob Dylan song --- if you've got nothing you've got nothing to lose. And because I really like Jack and Willow and after what happened to Shar if anything happened to them it would about break my heart.! I wonder if Azure Crush will drop by?
Comments from author:
Yes, I've been leading up to this scene and this line for a looooooong time. Because I'm sneaky like that.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from texaswookie
I've thought this since you've mentioned Buffy's ice skating off and on but never thought you would really go there, but since you've done it I'll go ahead and say this. Buffy needs to team up Tsurara. It does bring up the question of why Maggie targeted these particular orphans though. Has Walsh noticed that they were approached by Tera or is there something more to it. Worst part is, we have to wait till wed to find out.
Comments from author:
On the upside, you don't have to wait five months for the next chapter, wondering the entire time if the story has finally gone 'on hiatus'.

Review of chapter "Return" from fanreaderonetwo
"I am still fiddling with parts of the TSRoAM epilogue, and I am still writing Cross Purposes (only two chapters ahead) and Xendra chapters (16 chapters ahead). On top of that, my muse has been beating the snot out of me to make more progress on "Hermione Granger and the Boy Who Lived" (now working on chapter 78) and "The Secret Reunion of Alex Mack" (still grappling with chapters 1-6). Plus I'm working on Phase #10 (and short story Phase #9.5 and several short stories set after Phase #10)."


What are "the Phase" stories? Are they for this site or are they Whatley material?
Comments from author:
They are all Whateley Universe stories. Nine novels, some of them longer than the longer Harry Potter story, and several short stories, not counting all the crossovers with other protagonist characters.

Review of chapter "Return" from fanreaderonetwo
I'm wondering about Maggie's reaction when she sees three of her _remaining_ loyal Orphans cut to ribbon's by a petite skater on TV.

After the two debacles in LA and NYC that just cost her five Orphans, a goon and a Croc, I wonder how much reliable muscle she still has available. And we still haven't seen the attack on the Mack residence, which could easily cost her a couple more.
Comments from author:
Maggie just might be massively entertained, and pleased that the supposedly useless Orphan wasn't a failure at all, just better at dissembling.

Review of chapter "Return" from fanreaderonetwo
I was expecting Batman to decide to decide that he was outmatched in that situation (confined space and lack of effective "anti-Croc" weapons) and disengage and come back when had an adequate hammer.

Like everyone else I loved Buffy's new tagline.

I'm having this image a sane DA (with hopes of reelection) looking at all the videos of Buffy's 'Ice Dance of Death' and telling the ADA and cops that want her prosecuted..
"A gorgeous and sexy 5'2" unarmed girl is attacked by _three_ large male Orphans and a huge thug with a long record of violent crimes. They have guns and tasers. She lures them onto her 'turf' and outfights and kills them in public and on video. Now you want me to prosecute her for killing them? If I was that dumb, first the jury would declare her 'not guilty' without leaving the jury box, then I would get impeached for bringing her to trial. Order her released _immediately_ and get out of my office before I fire you for wasting my time."

I'm bothered by how sloppy O'Neill and Willow's security was. Two guys, "somewhere" in the same building. No alerts go out when the signal jammer activates, and the commo to the couple and their security is shaky.
As compared to; SRI alarms go off when the jammer cuts the signal from the security team camped across the hall from the couple. SRI _immediately_ tries contacting the couple and when they can't they alert the local PD and scramble the nearest SRI (or "allied") unit.
Comments from author:
I think you can assume that O'Neill's security team was extremely dead just before the power went out and the jammers went on. There were a lot of people on that assault force.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from cmdruhura
She's obviously a believer of 'If life gives you lemons, open a lemonade stand and make tons of money.'

Riley is going straight to Defcon 1 on this. But can he warn Alex in time?
Comments from author:
And then turn it into a reality tv show called 'WWE Ice Skating Divas'.

“I’m Buffy… the Empire Slayer.”

Sort of a Buffy\Cordelia Frankenstein creation, love it :-)
Comments from author:
:D :D Yes, I went there. I've been going there for a very long time. See if you can find the first clue I planted leading to this scene.
