Review of chapter "Return" from Zeviz
Review:
"Hmm... we're talking another hundred from the Buffyverse, several dozen from the Jaimeverse, a couple hundred from the Potterverse, several score more from the Alexverse, another hundred from the Stargateverse, maybe a thousand or so from the Batverse...

Okay, as long as you don't mind the George R.R. Martin 'may drop dead before finishing' problem..."

I don't see a problem here. :) In fact, I'd be quite happy to read regular installments of this story for the next 30 or 40 years. (Or more, if we reach the promised breakthroughs in medical technology. Or a singularity. Although in that case you'd finish the entire story in a nanosecond, and it would be instantly uploaded in all readers' brains. :) )
Comments from author:
:D :D

I believe that if you talked to people back in 1900, they would feel that we have already hit The Singularity. We have supercomputers that fit in your pocket, which are so smart you can talk to them, and an international network of communications as if we were all wired together, and even people walking around with tiny cameras and monitors on their faces.

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
You know, I'm glad Grover made an appearance because I was just thinking about him in relation to imaging technology.

He sees infrared, yes? It's just that I remembered what things looked like on the occassions I got to play with the really expensive infrared toys and, well, you could still see the camo pattern on someone's pants as different brightness levels. So couldn't black ink reflect, say, the energy from a heat lamp differently enough from white paper for him to read?

Then I remembered the plasma TV my uncle set up to play a 5 hour campfire and there was a *very* noticeable temperature difference between the bright flames and dark background and wondered how Grover would see it. Although I suppose depending on how fast the heat dissipates, it might just look like a weird mess to him.
Comments from author:
There are probably a lot of imaging techniques and technologies to help him, but he's the only one on earth who can tell what's helpful for him and what's not. So he probably has to participate in the research in order for them to make any progress.

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from fpb
Review:
Well, I can't insert every character from *every* crossover universe. Not without making this stiry MUCH larger. :D


And that would be bad because? HOORAY FOR THE 200TH!
EDITED IN: there is a small and purely local difference. I read you with pleasure. I avoid GRR Martin like the plague.

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Review:
I have to ask....how is Grover ever entirely invisible, especially when you can see food go down his throat into his stomach?

Or, beyond?

*shudders*
Comments from author:
Apparently, the food is pretty much invisible once it's out of the stomach, due to attack by invisible stomach acids (and whatever). But on missions he just drinks clear Pedialyte (not the orange stuff) and is fully invisible.

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from SirLee
Review:
DieselDriver: CrystalHall was moved to a new server some weeks ago and the upload issue has been fixed. Kristen, in fact, has been updating the main site.
Also, there are two new canon authors... ElrodW (of Bikini Beach and MAU fame) and Morpheus (of, well, *everything* fame)
Of course, since Murphy seems to have a special love for Whateley, there is a *new* minor issue -- namely, file attachments to forum postings seem to be broken. But that is just a minor annoyance -- people are just posting links to the files instead of attaching the files.

By the way: I uploaded my first story to Twisting the Hellmouth. It's a little ficlet intended as humor, as part of the International Day of Femslash. If anybody is interested, it can be found here:

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from DieselDriver
Review:
Nice little clean up chapter. Loose ends tied up for the time being. Hints of more Wackie Maggie hijinks in the works?

Tera bull use of the "Tera" slang. Hope you got it mostly out of your system.


r.e. your comment: "Then I guess I won't mention that I've currently got 14 Whateley Universe stories open. :D"

OMG, that's AWESOME!!! Where will you post them? Is Crystal hall up or still broken?

#2 r.e. your comment: "Now I'm wondering if I should have inserted some more stuff earlier, so the ICBM would be on chapter 200. We humans make such a big deal about round numbers. :D"

It's only round in Base 10 or multiples thereof right?
Comments from author:
[1] Whateley is running again on a new server. New stuff is appearing, but not every Sunday.

[2] I'm also willing to work with base 2, base 8, base 16, and even base 12. I'm thinking about base 3 and base 9. :D

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from (Recent Donor)draconin
Review:
200 chapters! And just as fresh and enjoyable as when I first started reading! I am in awe. :-)
Comments from author:
Thanks. I hope it's better than the first couple chapters, because it starts off slowly (comparatively speaking). Although I really enjoyed all the people who complained about the waste of time from introducing Jo Baker.

Review:
Re: padding the previous chapters so the ICBM would be in chapter 200.

Nah. That would make sense for a comic book, to issue an ALL-ACTION TRIPLE-SIZE SPECTACULAR WITH MULTIPLE EDIBLE HOLOGRAPHIC MARSHMALLOW COVERS IN EIGHTEEN FLAVORS! Just US$ 49.99!

But this is not a comic book, even if there are superheroes in it. And this way, we got to have cake on the anniversary.
Comments from author:
The cake is a lie! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from Zeviz
Review:
Less than 50 chapters left? :( Will you then go on to the Hermione's backstory in Teraverse that you've mentioned? (That would be very tera. :P)

About this chapter, I was surprised that Hanna and Charlie learned about Alex' mission from the news, but it makes sense that she "wouldn't want to brag" to the point of not even explaining how she got the "sunburn". It was also surprising to hear about a nuclear detonation as almost a footnote, but it also makes sense that since everything is from Alex' PoV, she'd only hear about it in a briefing the next day.
Comments from author:
Well, Charlie and Hanna saw the big news was Terawatt fighting in India, and ending up in Russia while an ICBM got launched northward but didn't blow anything up. I think I could figure that one out.

Comments from author:
Thanks. You may be disappointed to hear that the story will end before chapter 250.

that means.. Less than six months of chapters left!!
no no no, oh the pain, the pain...
but wait you bubbleheaded Nini, that means she can start a new story!
maybe something with outerspace :)


personally, I can't focus on more than three things simultaneously
and usually not for very long before I get distracted by lookasquirrel!!
dyslexic and mildlyADHD thank God for Dragon NaturallySpeaking
or I wouldn't be doing these reviews.

Review of chapter "Off Hours" from EdBecerra
Review:
Two hundred chapters, and three hundred pages of reviews.

Seriously, we need to send out a Special Forces team to chain our favorite author to a word processor - we cannot risk an escape attempt. ^_^

Off Hours was interesting. Slower than the previous chapters, obviously, but needed. Alex is still having a little trouble realizing what a magnificent person she is becoming, and is prone to underestimating herself severely.

Meanwhile, in Gotham City... err... that is, somewhere on Earth, Maggie and her sidekicks are still a-plotting.

Can we insert a Wilhelm Scream also? :D

Review of chapter "Return" from DavidEmpey
Review:
Re: Alex concentrating on 6 things at once at Hanna's party.
I don't remember that specific instance, but I've noticed several times she can concentrate on several things at once with tk, which seems pretty amazing to me.
Comments from author:
She used a vacuum cleaner and a dustbuster and a non-electric carpet sweeper and three dustrags to clean three rooms at once.

This is not even power creep, because with years less practice and far less tk force available, she did four things at once to clean her living room in the tv show.
