Review of chapter "Chapter One" from djhardim
Review:
Regarding hyenas: there are three types - spotted, brown, and striped.

Brown hyenas have both an alpha female and an alpha male.

Spotted female hyenas dominate the smaller males.

Spotted hyenas dominate other hyena species wherever their ranges overlap. Brown hyenas encounter spotted hyenas in the Kalahari, where the brown species outnumbers the spotted. The two species typically encounter each other on carcasses, which the larger spotted species usually appropriate. Sometimes, brown hyenas will stand their ground and raise their manes while emitting growls. This usually has the effect of seemingly confusing spotted hyenas, which will act bewildered, though they will occasionally attack and maul their smaller cousins. Similar interactions have been recorded between spotted and striped hyenas in the Serengeti.

The striped hyena is monogamous, with the male helping the female to establish a den, raise young and feed her when cubs are born. From what I can tell from the article, there doesn't seem to be an alpha.

I'm not sure what kind of hyena "Bud" and "Lou" were.
Comments from author:
I rather doubt the writers even gave it any thought, whatsoever.

Thank for the clarification.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AnimeRonin
Review:
Ah, Dawn-babble. Almost as good as Willow-babble, especially on the evolution of the bat critters. And nice to see Vi in this.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SamTurner
Review:
Nice.You know Batman won't let this go so some more chapters are needed please. :)
Comments from author:
Yeah, Batman won't want to let these *very* *interesting* people get away without learning more about them.

Or, at least trying. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from IronOx
Review:
Couldn't stop laughing. Poor Batman. Tim may be permanently affected. Suspect the Joker WILL be a bit more picky in future - he's crazy, not stupid.
Comments from author:
Yep. When someone breaks his fingers right in front of The Bat, the Joker is definitely going to give some thought to whether he wants to attract that person's attention, again. ;-)

Glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
Mmm pineapple... It was nice of Dawn to invite Batman along but I bet Tim is glad that the didn't stick around. Xander is obviously much cooler than Tim's guardian :)
Comments from author:
Well, Tim would probably think so, up until Xander decides to give him the 'Shovel Talk,' I suppose.

It's a little different when it's given while actually holding a shovel and showing it to the person you're giving it to. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
Lol! Poor Bats. At least Willow seems to have passed her meta-babble power along to Dawn.
Comments from author:
Yeah, you can *almost* feel bad for The Bat. ;-)

And you wouldn't want a gift like that to be lost, would you? ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ChikaraKatherine
Review:
Only Dawn could cause Batman/Bruce to go running into the day/night. From her babble about if he's normal human or metabat. hehehe. Excellent idea. Good plot, good flow. Excellent one shoot. Perhaps this will teach the Joker about his random kidnapping of people. Other wise he's going to wish he'd just told Darkside he was a loser to his face. Hahaha.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Dawn has had excellent instruction in the art of driving people bonkers, and she's also showing indications of a great natural talent with her current interaction with The Bat. ;-)

And while the Joker might be crazy, he's not stupid, so he'll realize that he's pissed off some people who apparently don't hold to the same standards of behavior towards criminals as Batman does. THAT is going to give him some food for some exhaustive thought.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from moonpup
Review:
I like it and cannot wait to see the next one but felt I should point out a fact that you have incorrect in your story. hyenas have alpha females not males.
Comments from author:
Actually, brown hyenas *do* alpha males. Check it out on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_Hyena

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Tjack
Review:
Very cute, a minor note however. If you were going for Frasier's brother it's Niles Crane, not Nigel.
I wonder if they might be related to another Psychiatrist Named Crane from Gotham?
Comments from author:
Thanks for pointing that out. It was a brain fart, and now it's been corrected. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from cmdruhura
Review:
I'm surprised Bats didn't wonder how Tim survived locked up with Dawn if she had a tendency to babble on like that, since he barely lasted 5 minutes himself.
Comments from author:
It's a survival trait Tim developed to cope with all of the high school girls he associates with during the day:

Just smile, nod occasionally, but don't really listen, or else you will go stark, raving mad. ;-)
