Review of chapter "Hellmouth, meet Hellbore." from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I really enjoyed this crossover, you had season 2 Xander and Cordy well in character. As for problems, most of what I saw were punctuation errors.

Good grief, I haven't thought of Keith Laumer in ages (loved his Retief of the CDT books). Now I'm going to have to go look up the Bolo series just to satisfy my curiosity. Also, if you like military sci-fi, you might enjoy Tanya Huff's "Valor's Choice" and "The Better Part of Valor". Great stuff! And if you're fond of military history (particularly British), you'll probably recognize the battle used as the basis for the one in the first book.

P.S. Please forgive me for being a punny smart ass, but you might consider altering the first part of your disclaimer for this fic to read "All canon (and cannon) characters belong to their rightful owners." Yeah, I know, most tank guns are called guns, but still... ;-)

Edited to add another post script:

Oh, good lord! I just read the rest of the reviews. You have got to write that Halloween fic with Xander dressing up as Retief. I loved the style of this fic and I think you would definitely be able to pull it off very well. If not that, how about switching to Heinlein and having him dress as one of Rico's Rangers in that oh so cool power armor? *grins evilly*
Comments from author:
Really glad you enjoyed it :) I haven't even heard of Tanya Huff, I'll be sure to check her out, thanks!

If you do see any punctuation errors, please feel free to email me and point them out. It's not the strongest part of my writing. :)

I'd love to do a fic with Retief, but he's smarter than I am, sad to say :D I'll definitely give it a shot some day, though.

Snicker

Yes, that would tip the balance in the favor of the good guys: I doubt that even Glory could survive a hit from a pair of 110cm Hellbores...
Comments from author:
Alas if there was only some way we could test that theory :)

Review of chapter "Hellmouth, meet Hellbore." from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
Nice story. The Bolo 'voice' is very much in the style of Keith Laumer.

I can see why you don't plan on a sequel; the Judge, Angelus, the Mayor, Adam, even Glory, would hardly even count as target practice for one of the Dinochrome Brigade.
Comments from author:
Thanks man, I love his stories and howled with laughter when I read Retief! Maybe when I have some time I'll write a halloween fic with Xander dressing up as him :)

Review of chapter "Hellmouth, meet Hellbore." from Ghostrider
Review:
LOL!!!!

Oh man, I remember reading a couple of Bolo novels years ago. Giving Xander command of one.... It reminds me of the old adage "There is no such thing as Overkill. Just 'Open Fire' and 'I need to reload'"..... Hmmm, maybe you could do a crossover with Schlock Mercenary *VBEG* Poor Schlock will be even greener with gun envy.
Comments from author:
hehehehe

I'll have to try and find Schlock Mercenary again... can barely recall it.

Review of chapter "Hellmouth, meet Hellbore." from Joezales
Review:
HAHAHA great start man. Yeah I understand that these Tanks are to powerful to have a sequel. But humor us anyways, do some short ones with each baddy and how it would be handled, I know that it would be entertaining. LOLz.
Comments from author:
I actually considered this, but you can only write one, maybe two, with the same dialogue:

"Hey, is that warehouse moving? Do my evil eyes deceive me? And whats that flash of ligh-..." *Small hilltop is vaporised*

Review:
A BOLO in Sunnyhell? Wonder how the 'Sunnydale effect' will cover a 40 meter tank. Good story. Don't suppose you'd consider writing more?
Comments from author:
I might have something coming tomorrow, but after that I think this story will reach it's end.

Review of chapter "Hellmouth, meet Hellbore." from CPTSkip
Review:
Excellent work, especially for a first time bard. I thought you did a really good job on everyones' characters, especially the Bolo's. I would love to see the effects of Bolo combat on the Forces of Evil. "Hello Mayor Giant Snake. Can you say hello to an infinite repeater rail gun? I knew you could." And since Buffy has such a hangup on firearms usage, I think Nacho would totally fry all her mental circuitry. Lol!
Comments from author:
Until she realizes she can now just run demons over... :)

Although I think Xander would ban her from the command deck once he saw how bad she drives :D

Review of chapter "Hellmouth, meet Hellbore." from Thewander
Review:
Very good, just too bad you cant keep up a Bolo story in Sunnydale. Anything that can shoot down a ship in orbit is a little to powerfull, but it a great read
Comments from author:
Thanks, and I wish you were'nt right... man... maybe I can cross this over with stargate and make him blow up Anubis :)

Gotta ask...was he thinking about sex there at the end??? :)
Comments from author:
Being called "Commander" by a Bolo would certainly give me a tingly feeling :D
