Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
I like this story but it badly needs a beta - as you no doubt realise, for I see that you are appealing for one. In this chapter the sudden switch from past tense to present tense is rather disconcerting. I would recommend sticking to past tense unless you are the reincarnation of Damon Runyon.

I'd volunteer to beta it for you but I simply have too many commitments to beta for anyone other than for Curiouslywombat.

argh! thanks for the heads up.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from loyaleskamoe
This is one heck of an interesting premise. McClain seems in character, and I loved the inclusion of Al! He's sorely missed, in my opinion, in the last two Die Hard films. I look forward to reading more!
Comments from author:
Yeah, I like Al too. Alas, I don't see any way to get him into the story on any regular basis.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from CindyB
This is one crossover that NEVER occured to me. However, you have me very interested. Yippie ki a MF'r! I can't wait to see what happens next. Lol!!!
Comments from author:
Heh, this premise has been a plot bunny nibbling on my toes for years, but it didn't occur to me that the cop could be John McClane until recently. As soon as I put John McClane together with the premise, the story just started taking shape.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from trongod
Ya know, if John can get through to Xander, prove he really is the same guy as was at the Nakatome Incident - assuming the Scoobies ever heard of it, their lives being as they are - he could be a powerful and positive influence on the teen. Maybe prevent the death of Kendra - or at least make it temporary a la Buffy's Minor Death the year or so before...

So now we'd get a Xander getting training that Giles has so shamefully neglected, while a certain Boston Southie and the Caribbean Bombshell can further their own Slayer lives... And now their are three Slayers wandering around...

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Paraphrase: "Now that I think about it, your experience might be exactly what Sunnydale needs, but what the town needs and what you need might not be the same thing, John."
Awesome. Sums up the spirit of the movies. Banter has the right tone. Looks like this fic is in good hands ;)
Good distillation of the episode's fight scene. Seems like he'll be short a few witnesses when he arrives.
Sweet, love the character. John's a smart hero and able to retreat when he needs to.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Past Donor)morgyair
Now I love the Die Hard movies and oddly enough I can see John McClane as the father Buffy never knew she had...hey they have the same smart a#@ response to everything, not to mention the witty repartee!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from hpssslashfan
Interesting Xover, I can't wait to see where you take this. Plus I'd love to see him make puppy!Oz, hidden_rebel!Giles and maybe side_kick!Xander his trifecta of sanity. 'Cause, I can't see him having any patience with the "girl" power or SoCal attitude. Please, have him give Cordy at least one verbal bitch-slap, when she starts to try to through her sarcasm around? PLEEEEASE!!!! Oh, say...something about her clothes and street walkers? LOL Plus Buffy's mom is available.
Comments from author:
LOL and judging by Holly, Joyce would be his type too. We'll see.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from ScorpioP
An intriguing start. While Buffy has had a few bad experiences with police, they can't all be incompetent. If I remember correctly, most of her run-ins with SPD occurred when Mayor Wilkins and Principal Snyder were targeting her.
I look forward to seeing John deal with a police force under seige, not just by run-of-the-mill vampires and demons, but by the various larger threats and incidents that blow through town, such as the Judge, Slayerfest, Kokistos, the Gentlemen, etc. Who knows? It may be that any Sunnydale police officer who survives a year on the night shift is actually VERY good at their job, and tends to get offers from SWAT teams or special crimes units in other cities.
(And maybe your story can explain why in Sunnydale the morgue is still a windowless room in the basement, and the coroner is stupid enough to work at night? I'd think I'd want a room with LOTS of windows facing east, and I wouldn't enter the morgue until well after sunrise.)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Ghostrider
With a new part of the Die Hard franchise coming out soon, I was pleasantly surprised to see this. So far, the writing is very good. I hope you can keep it up as it looks very promising. As this is John McClane, I can't help but think that in some way, the Mayor is behind the acceptance of his application, maybe to keep the 'nightlife' in check a bit more. After all, like Al used to say, when John gets a 'feeling', insurance companies go broke. Someone like that in Sunnydale?

Wrecking ball, meet egg.

So, yes, me thinks the 'nightlife' is in for a rude awakening.

I can so see hero worship from Xander, if and when he sees Johnny-boy on a roll. Same sort of humor, not to mention the fact Xander still has the whole Halloween remnant floating around in his brain, albeit less now.


On second thought, if Wilkins is really behind this, what was he smoking? McClane and Xander on their own are quite a handful. Partnering up? Yeah, not much left standing in a very short time.
