Review:
*poke* Is it dead? This one is quite fun, but it needs to make it to Halloween before the insanity begins.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Arbitbit
Review:
I just thought of something chiss mature rapidly or do they age like 10 years kiddy age and only having 2 year of teenagedom and his what 16 or something if so does it mean he'll age rapidly or something and does it mean his a force sensitive if he has a light saber and all and I really am excited on how chiss and xander personality mesh with each other and I wonder what Jonathan and Andrew reaction would be when they see this in holloween and such cant wait pls.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Oddshot
Review:
Pyrrhic Victory by JoeHundredaire , I love this story I congratulate you this story looks like it may have the legs to run along time if it go’s as your NOTES suggest it might it will be smashing .

Now I know you have most if not all of the above worked out in your head so far , But can I suggest you use some of this story to write a response to the Ship of the Line Challenge , Just a thought but see what your Muse thinks about it .
Comments from author:
I find the SotL challenge to be sloppy, easy, and overpowered. This was already planned to be a BtVS/SW/SG-1 crossover because the original story it's being made from was in fact one, but I don't think that adding the ship would add anything... nor do I need Xanderphiles rising up to try and lynch me for offering up a "Ship of the Line" story that isn't strictly Xander-centered.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from skychan
Review:
I'm glad to see this story is getting a little attention again. I like your nutzy 16-25 year old couple. Don't know why but they strike me as being cute, as do Tara and her Mom. There is going to be quite a cast when your done. Will there be fan art for the lineup?
Comments from author:
Not entirely sure on the fanart front; Lexi's been rather busy of late, which is why the art for Blue Belle has started to diversify (four non-her artists and counting)...

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Meneldur
Review:
Hmm. Not sure what to say about this. While I enjoyed the original concept of Run This Town, this seems to be far more about, well, fashion. And sure, fashion of Star Wars costumes and alien dress up, and I love Star Wars, but I'm not so much interested in the technical details. I suppose it might matter if we go the same route and the spell turns them into actual aliens with actual clothes rather than costumes... but until then, it's kinda irrelevant to me.

Still, liked the character interactions, especially Tara. It was nice seeing her still a bit shy, but more bold and self-aware, able to stand up to Cordelia and so forth but still blushing when being teased. It worked, better, I feel - she was discomfited because she's not used to social interaction, but she was self-assured enough to stand her ground Taking out the stammer helped.

As for the last scene, again, not interested, unless it had more of why Joe and Becki were together, as Mallory pointed out. But even then, since I don't know the characters (or at least I think I don't) I'm not yet invested enough to really care... I guess we'll just wait and see.
Comments from author:
Well, there's two reasons that cover pretty much everything:
1.) You're watching this from a girl-heavy POV. Even when it's not actively in a girl's third person subjective, you're with Xander while he is SURROUNDED by girls. Everything is going to be tainted by that just the way Harry Potter's view of the muggle world and Ron Weasley's would be drastically different if you wrote the same exact scene from one fic from both sets of eyes.
2.) It's always so convenient in YAHFs, isn't it? Ethan always has everything... Spartan armor, stormtroopers and Darth Vader, Iron Man, you name it. Never mind that Mallory is gearing up in handmade armor custom-fitted to her petite figure. In most stories, she'd just so happen to find it - or something close enough to modify - at Ethan's. But here? I recognize that's bloody fucking ludicrous. So we have that geek who helps make stormtrooper armor with his buddies (Joe) and the girlfriend (Becki) who ropes him into helping after making a promise she probably shouldn't have.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from LFW
Review:
Fun read and a great bit of building
Hoping for more
Thanks
Comments from author:
I've got the outlines for this, since it builds off Run This Town for the B/C plots and only needs Xander's A plot from scratch. Just need to find time to write it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from gmaniscool
Review:
I really enjoyed this story so far.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I've actually got all of it outlined, mostly because it derives the B and C plots from an older fic of mine. I just need to find time to write it all out.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Harry
Review:
I think that this is going to be a VERY interesting Halloween! Now, with all these young ladies going as Jedi, I can hardly wait to see what Ethan's spell does for them. And as for T-Bear, I HOPE that this event helps her find a lady friend.
Comments from author:
Well, two or three will be Jedi. The rest of the girls will be "normal" aliens. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Recent Donor)tammin
Review:
This is a bunny that just won't die. I look forward to the day that you finish either this story or one like it as this is an idea that I would like to see, if not completed, then past Halloween and the aftermath. You do the setup so well, and the characters live.
Comments from author:
I know another author just contacted me asking about adapting the idea. So while I work on Vanguard and Blue Belle, you'll be able to see a story with a similar premise. PV is on my to-finish list, though, because I have over a third of the full story already written out.
