Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Several opportunities for Annie to get menaced or kidnapped over the summer, and a few for Alex. Meanwhile, hoping that Alex calls up SRI over this possibly "could be even worse" situation with digging up the undead in a highly populated area.

Hey, it's the Umbrella Corporation. What can go wrong? :D

Comments from author:
Well, I might have planned some of this really far in advance... :D

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from Harry
Review:
UH OH CHONGO! Heading back to that place where at the end, there was a monster that was CRUSHED by a building going down on it? Why does that send alarm bells going off in my head?
Comments from author:
Hey, it's bound to be crushed to a paste, right? Right? Harry, you're not backing me up here... :D

>You mean that big thing with the spikes in the front? It’s gotta be dead...

Oh wow! Now we are talking!

They might as well have said 'nothing can go wrong'. :D

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from fpb
Review:
So there's sure to be trouble in Paris. By not wanting to take the Terawatt gym bag along, Alex has performed the equivalent of asking "What can go wrong?" or saying "It's quiet... too quiet." Besides, we already know that Maggie had scheduled one of her spectaculars for the French capital. And before that Alex is surely going to have to deal with a few Umbrella mutations....
Comments from author:
So much for a quiet summer. :D

Review of chapter "After-Prom" from mooncowthree
Review:
Sooo, your story has officially invaded my dreams. I was trying to escape a high security NSA facility using only my TK, without raising any alarms or appearing on their cameras. I didn't want to use my morph because i didn't want them to know i could do that, so i ended up flying around ceilings and trying to find camera blind spots.
Comments from author:
MWA-HA-HAH! MY EVIL PLAN BEGINS TO UNFOLD!

Ahem. I mean, sorry about that.

Review of chapter "Prom Clean-up" from Doraemax
Review:
Well, i guess i have to accept your resolution to this arc. Perhaps this is a good thing to promote 'anti-bully' campaign. But i had such a hope for Carrie. Sure, at the end she was scary...but she was a victim. Worse, she was an Innocent and Pure victim (her purity is such that she only started having her period shortly before the Event)....
...I guess she is much too good for the world.

She reminded me of a folk-tale around my part of the world. A story of a young common girl, the most beautiful around. The chieftain's wife was jealous of her beauty and the fact she manage to score the 'Jock' of the village. So, when the husband was off to war, she accuse the girl of infidelity (with the Husband best friend, whom he tasked to look after the wife). The villagers, most of whom also jealous of the girl, put on a sham of a trial in which she and the 'best friend' was sentence to death. When the executioner stab her during her sentencing, she bled white-blood, proclaiming her innocent. In her despair, she curse that part of world to never know wealth and prosperity until seven generation is due (the curse is real and only ended sometime in 1990s). I forgot what happened when the Husband came back and found out his beloved wife and best friend has been put to death by a Jealous village.
Comments from author:
"Too Good For This Sinful Earth" is a trope older than steam engines. But it is not usually done well. King did it surprisingly well, given that the usual version is somewhere between overdone and ham-fisted. And it used to be done in a REALLY blatant way. Nowadays it tends to be reserved for Young Adult fiction trying for that dang Newbery Medal.

Unfortunately, Carrie White fell victim to the machinations of the author, as this is part of Alex's character development.

Review of chapter "Return" from Zeviz
Review:
"I'm doing one, but I'm having a hard time communicating with Diane. Apparently, there's something about my email address that sets off her email spam filters. My only other method is to put the story in a private review and patiently wait for her to reach it. (And her time, like all of us, is limited.)"

Is this why I never get replies when I use the site's "email the author" link?

And for sharing drafts, you can use Google Docs, and just send the link using whatever medium works, including private reviews here. (That's how I share my fics with my beta. I've even enabled comments for her account, so she can add her feedback directly.)
Comments from author:
I have three separate spam filters. One is on my firewall. Unfortunately, sometimes I get false positives. Sorry. If you send me email and I don't reply, maybe I'm actually out, but maybe I didn't see it. In that case, drop me a review and let me know. Or vice versa. And feel free to blame evil spammers out there.

Review of chapter "Prom Clean-up" from mooncowthree
Review:
Mmwahahahahahahahaha!!!! I figured it out! Maggie's compound is hidden in the Amazon rain forest so that during the finale Jack and Alex get to go and talk to Cordelia. Obviously they were going to end up going down there at some point, but the only missions we know about right now are going to be in Utah and in Paris so the final confrontation has to be in Brazil! And that is why DA's flight had a connection in Mexico City. I'm a genius! You don't even have to tell me I'm right, I know I'm right.
Comments from author:
That would be pretty funny. The Punch-Cordelia-In-The-Face Op.

"No Alex, I promise I didn't call it that when I cleared it with Top Banana."
"What did you tell Willow it was called?"
"I can't say it out loud in an FR-15 fanfic."

Review of chapter "Prom Clean-up" from EdBecerra

> "Can anyone publish a list of TSROAM fanfic fanfics?
> I gather I have been a part of something of a movement."

I'm doing one, but I'm having a hard time communicating with Diane. Apparently, there's something about my email address that sets off her email spam filters. My only other method is to put the story in a private review and patiently wait for her to reach it. (And her time, like all of us, is limited.)

Yes, I'm doing it with her permission, she's seen the first chapter, I'm using several characters she's suggested, and oddly enough, I seem to have - entirely by coincidence! - collided with a pre-existing plot point. Alex's new mentor, and his 'adventure' in Colorado, actually supported something I was writing.
Comments from author:
Well, you've got my okey-dokey, so you should just go ahead and publish. First line:

"A/N: This is a fanfic for Diane Castle's Alexverse, and it has already gotten Diane's okey-dokey."
:D

Review of chapter "Prom Clean-up" from frozenchicken
Review:
So, shall we assume that Roald Dahl's 'Matilda' is going to occur here?
Comments from author:
:D :D That would be encouraging. Stephen King wrote that piece with Mrs. Jenks and her two year old (it's the last thing in the novel 'Carrie') so you have to know it won't work out as sweetly as 'Matilda'. With Stephen King you're more likely to get Charlie McGee or Randall Flagg, even if Roald Dahl went in some really dark paces in a lot of his 'children's books'.

On the gripping hand, she's two. That should give Alex some time to deal with stuff.

Can anyone publish a list of TSROAM fanfic fanfics? I gather I have been a part of something of a movement.

EDITED IN: Answering DAvidEmpey's question, you forgot my Terawatt sketch: http://fpb.livejournal.com/667109.html
Comments from author:
Well, you might have *started* something.

Review of chapter "Prom Clean-up" from mooncowthree
Review:
unfortunately I have no muse to help me write stories, but someone suggested having NCIS interact with Tearwatt and see Dinozzo hit on her, lol, I think that would be a fun one shot.
Comments from author:
Having a muse is not necessarily a good thing. For some, a muse is like Salma Hayek in 'Dogma'. For me, a muse is more like Annie Wilkes. I know a writer whose muse is creativity itself... and as a result she can hardly go a month without creating an entire new universe to write in, so she has lots of abandoned universes she would love for her muse to let her return to. No such luck. (Hint: her nom de plume is a polearm.)
