Review of chapter "Honeymoon Period" from Starfox
Review:
That's one heck of a bad day, and more to come. On the other Hand, if this goes well, then the Empire could have just pushed a fence sitter and a loner into Team Terawatt, and made Alex redon the cape.
Comments from author:
Making Alex re-don the cape would count as a BAD thing for them.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from SirLee
Review:
Now that it's over and I can look at it from a slightly more removed perspective...

...I have to say that my favourite chaptes are:

1. Chapter 32-33. Why? I don't know, but perhaps because this is ALEX, and not Terawatt being the "hero". Willow was at her lowest, and who comes from nowhere and lifts her spirits, tells her she is a great person and gives her renewed purpose? Not her parents, not her alleged friends -- this teenager that she had never met.It's a very *human* story. Oh, sure, Barbara did play a significant part, and Alex being Terawatt helped. But in the end, it wasn't a "superpowers save the day" story, it was an "Alex dives in to help someone" story.

2. Chapter 58. Yes, there was a superbattle, but that's not why I keep going back to reread it. No, what I really liked about this chapter was how Hanna interacted with Terawatt and the others. It's the first time we see Hanna in this story, and she is perhaps at her most human. She is not so much a supersoldier there, but a little girl pretty much resigned to die, who only wants to die in familiar terrain. She sees Alex and thinks she is a fairy (not an angel, because I don't think Erik Heller was big on teaching religion to Hanna). Her reaction at Jack's antics was also endearing, and Lupo letting her concerns (and possible childhood trauma) show up was also touching.

3. Chapter 48 (and, partly, 49). A purely human, superpowers-free moment. Jack comes meet Willow, and not only he doesn't pressure her in any way, he respects her competency and abilities and makes her feel appreciated and valued.

Thanks. I have my own personal fave chapters, but some of them are because I was able t slip stuff past the reader at that point, or because I was able to pull off something I had been setting up for ages.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from AntonioCC
Review:
A great read from the beginning to the end. (In fact I started my nth re-read yesterday). One thing that I have liked is that in the end SRoAM is not a dark story. Serious, yes, and goes sometimes into dark places, but never reach the depths of hopelessness of, for example, Worm.
Comments from author:
Well, Alex Mack, despite some potential dark areas (being captured and dissected for your superpowers, having your parents kidnapped by a killer, finding out your boyfriend's father was murdered by said killer, bullying in schools, etc.) is a very light show.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from mooncowthree
Review:
Did you ever consider Cassandra Cain as another unknown project Galinka survivor? Seems like she would have been a perfect fit.
Comments from author:
Actually I had a list of possibles on that, and a list of other possible Maggie projects, and... well, I was rather obsessive when I was building my original outline for the story.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from cwolf
Review:
It will definitely be a few weeks.

Until the weather settles down, I'm not going to risk driving to it. Tourist traffic alone has caused wrecks at times. So I need to wait for a week of no snow.

Basically I need a close eye of where I know a lot of the action will take place. I do plan on changing things due to this being an au, but the area has to be set in mind first.
Comments from author:
Ooh, research! I approve! After all, I am basically Ridiculous Research Lady. (That means no cape, because I spend all day sitting down.) Research where you can go to a place and study it and then use the setting? Even better. I recommend Paris. And San Francisco. And Miami. I still have not made it to Tokyo.

Review of chapter "Next Steps" from mooncowthree
Review:
He read, "Beforehand close door, each window & exit; wait until time. Open spellbook; study; read spell, scan, select; tell us; write it, print the hex while each watches."
I just realized that this is a nod to canon willow, I thought it was just some generic d&d code she had laying around.
Comments from author:
It's more than just a nod to Canon!Willow. This is a real piece of Perl code anonymously published on Usenet ages ago, and it's called 'the Black Perl'. It is even all legal Perl code. You can find it on the internet.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from dcarson
Review:
Was doing some rereading. What would be fun is a cat tales style story of them in college. The super stuff is mainly off screen and the story deals mainly with the day to day college life. And day to day photographer stuff. Her and Ray crashing an event in disguise to get photos for example.
Comments from author:
There are a lot of things I could do with this, but first I have to get my muse to cooperate. Which is rather like trying to herd cats. Sometimes it's like trying to re-direct a cattle stampede.

Thanks. I notice that no one ever says 'a picture is worth a thousand words... approximately... given an extremely large standard deviation'. :D

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from DieselDriver
Review:
Umm... What is "noodle kugel"?

TSRoAM Rest in Pieces, er, Peaches, er, Peace. Yeah that's it. Peace. Aw, no way, that's not gonna work either. No rest for the good guys. Especially not for her, she's The Best!
Comments from author:
Noodle kugel (or keegel or anything that would sound like either) is a recipe like bread pudding but made with egg noodles as the starch. My recipe is my mother's recipe: a sweet pudding with some cinnamon and raisins in it. Some kugels are more savory instead. There's lots of variability, but whatever you grow up with is the kugel (or keegel) you want served.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from (Recent Donor)draconin
Review:
Thank you again for a wonderfully entertaining and original story. I'm sad to see the end of it but looking forward to more installments on "Cross Purposes". And just about anything else that you're inspired to write!
Comments from author:
Thanks. Two years and 1.1M words? That's madness.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from cwolf
Review:
And saved to pdf/epub

One of my random private messages spawned a slight plot.

It'll be an unspecified, currently unknown time segment insertion into your universe without touching on any of your chapters. Jack will have a "Oh come on!" reaction however.

I can guarantee it will fall in a city that's completely random. I just have to actually drive over to it in order to firm up my mental image of where a lot of it will take place. lol
Comments from author:
Sounds interesting! Go for it.
