Review of chapter "Home Sweet Home" from (Past Donor)JoeHundredaire
I think Cdog was curious if Cordelia's protoform was Depth Charge, meaning she'd be an exceptionally powerful Maximal. As for the story at hand, I'm not sure how I really feel about the repressed personalities because it essentially turns it into the equivalent of those YAHFs where someone finds themselves in the body of the person whose costume they wore and gets stuck there when their Sunnydale body dies. Also, I personally think the beast modes and characters could be tailored a bit better to the characters if you were willing to diverge from canon, but that's just me.
Comments from author:
THE Joehundredaire has reviewed one of my stories! WOW!

Since Depth Charge doesn't show up until season three it was a bit of a confusing comment from Cdog I'll grant him... But I already decided that Cordelia would be what she was... Cordelia Chase in a beast mode with tentacles for arms? How could I not pass up such an opportunity. *Chuckle*

I suppose it could be something along those veins, but considering a certain plan I have in mind when we hit the second and third seasons of Beast Wars I highly doubt most of the cast will forget who they are forever. Especially after that Season Two Finale where TIME ITSELF IS ALL BEING DESTROYED! :D

I tried to tailor certain beast modes to the characters, but I also went off of personalities of the characters as well. Fractyl being a studious character who enjoys spending more time in the lab than on the battlefield struck me as the perfect character for Giles.

Xander of course HAD to be the Hyena, even if he was a Transmetal Two originally. So I came up with a mental image of how he'd look in a purely organic form and decided to stick with that. (He get's to go TM2 in Season Three.)

Willow was a tad tricky I was interested in keeping most characters the same gender, but I realized early on that it just wasn't possible since even after IDW and Simon Furman wrote up personal bios for their interpretration of certain characters there just weren't enough females. I decided Sonar would be the best existing femme to give to Willow. I just thought Bat/Willow I'm not sure exactly why... Perhaps because I didn't want to go the cliched Witch Willow turns into Cat Maximal.

I was really proud of making Angelus the manical Manterror... His personality is not only fun, but his bio even refers to the fact that he loves talking about himself in the Third Person. And Angelus always struck me as being quite egocentrical when he was a villain. So The Manterror was born.

With that in mind I decided that doing my best not to double up on preexisting characters beast modes would be a good idea. So instead of picking Buzz Saw for Jenny I went with Jetstorm. Both names started with J and a dragon fly is a very creepy looking insect. As a villain I figured Jenny might be a little creepy... She did have unusual tastes after all.

I wanted to differ from Buffy's petite frame so I dug up the most bulky Predacon I could find and have yet to figure out exactly what she'll look like as a femme version of Killer Punch. (Plus he comes with a kick ass scimitar/bone sword as a weapon. Something Buffy would definitely like.)

Which just leaves Angel... And as they say, you are what you eat. LOL

Now I'm curious though, what would the legendary Joehundredaire turn our favorite scoobies into?

Review of chapter "Home Sweet Home" from Omegaprime
So Liam is Packrat and works for the Maximals and Cordy is the Squid. Nice.

Oh my Jawbreaker/Xander is already making friends and finding out he's not speaking english.

Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Indeed... Sonar is a tad touchy ain't she? Maybe she's repressing something... Oh for example, I don't know? Willow's feelings for Xander. O.O

The cast so far is like this...

Xander/Jawbreaker (Maximal)
Willow/Sonar (Maximal)
Cordelia/I don't know yet (Maximal)
Liam (Angel)/Packrat (Maximal)
Giles/Fractyl (Predacon)
Buffy/Strykeback (Predacon)
Angelus/THE Manterror (Predacon)
and Jenny/Jetstorm (Predacon)

Four for each side. Thus rendering the sides even... I'm still debating on weather or not all eight of them survive through to the end of the series. I want to make some big changes to the Beast Wars series, but I still want to maintain a bit of control on how many characters get to the end of the series and all that.

Anyway I hope you'll enjoy the ride.

Review of chapter "Firefight Postponed" from Markelo
So Angelus became Manterror.. So where's Angel..Oh, wait! He's the Squid! LOL. Giles and Buffy as Preds...KEWL!
Comments from author:
Sorry wrong guess. *Snicker* Chapter Three should reveal the answer as to where our friend Angel is. Though technically I think it would be Liam... hmmmm gotta think about that.

Review of chapter "Firefight Postponed" from Omegaprime
Ok I thought this would be lame but it is not. This reboot is cool and not crazy like the original.

Plus it is just funny how Jawbreaker talks to himself er ah I mean Xander, Hope the others don't think he's nuts.

Hmmmm, will Xander reveal himself?

Keep up the good work
Comments from author:
That is something I'm not sure on. And I'm glad you like this take better than my last one. Though I don't think it was crazy, I do think it was just a tad too out of left field, and didn't offer much in the way of chances for anything fresh. Tons of Fanfic authors re-write season two or what have you with their favorite characters showing up to sort out all the problems Buffy and the gang get into. Personally I prefer this new attempt... PLUS I don't have to write Spike, I HATE writing Spike, his ruddy accent is a pain in the pistons to get right. *Shakes head*

Also I think most of the others think Jawbreaker is a little out there considering they just met him. ;)

Buffy should be a femme version of Razorback.

Review of chapter "Welcome to the Beast Wars" from Cdog
You really weren't kidding when you said things were going to be diffrent. And so far this route is proving to be the better of the two. I'm also curious as to whether or not the protoform that landed in the ocean is the same one as in Beast Wars.
Comments from author:
Not sure what you meant by that comment, the Protoform landing in the ocean is Cordelia, but I haven't figured out her name yet. And you really think this story is the better of the two Guardians of the Potential? Wow I'm not sure really one way or the other which one was better, but since so far this one isn't developing a super complex backstory and keeping things simpler I guess I have to say it's a step up compared to the original.

I liked the Pretender Shell concept from my first attempt, but in all honesty the Buffyverse just isn't built to house Predacons on the Hellmouth, they're all too powerful for their own good and would take out any big bad in less time than it takes to transform.

Anyway... Glad you're enjoying it, now I'm going to post chapter two.
