This does seem like a rather oft used theme (the LXG multi crossover thing). I might try my hand at one myself.

*reads* Well, your writing has grown rather more subtle since then. The whole love thing did make me retch a little.

Great! Thanks for writing.

"He’d read The Picture of Dorian Gray when he was younger, and had no desire to fight its title character." Um, so he's afraid Gray will, what, seduce him? Outdress him? Break his little thespian heart? Unless Bond is living a double life as a hopeless romantic painter or a penny-stage Juliet, I think he is fairly safe from Gray.
Otherwise, it's a pretty cool concept.

What an interesting prospect! I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out! (and to see if my pop culture knowledge is good enough to have accurately guessed Bond's team).
| The Gandhara 1/10/08 . chapter 11
When I read the summary, I liked a lot the idea behind this fic, but I must say there are many details that, in my opinion, make the quality of the fic go downhill.
For starters, no one has asked Bond to prove his claim that he works for the Government. How come everyone believes him just because? He could easily be a con artist or something, yet nobody thinks he can be telling anything other than the truth.
Also, the members of the new league are too easy to convince to join the team. They look almost eager to do so. The only one that was a bit reluctant was Elektra, and it crumbled more easily than a sand castle. I find that unrealistic. For example, Harry spent seven years hating the fact that he is a hero and wishing more than anything to have a normal life and never need to fight again; even if he's the type to help when he's needed, it should have taken more to get him back into a business he wishes to forget about.
It should also be noted that everybody feels completely at ease with the other members, despite that they've barely known each other for a couple days and most of them rarely work in a team. And not even those members only used to deal with local problems have the slightest problem coping with the fact that they're targeting a world-wide supernatural organization.
The first battle was too much for me. Even in fiction, a fight needs to remain somewhat believable. Gash threw away the element of surprise for the stupidest of reasons. The bad guys all gathered in front of the new league instead of surrounding them or getting to better tactical positions. Then we come to Harry's first spell; why use Impedimenta, which has a brief effect, instead of something more permanent like Stupefy or Petrificus Totalus? And even accepting that he couldn't think of anything better (hard to believe, considering his experience), why didn't he follow through? He could have used more spells in the time the bad guys were paralyzed, or Clark and Angel could have pounded them, or Gwen could have fried them, or something. It seems very stupid on the league's part not to take advantage of such a glaring opening, and instead waste time talking till their foes were unfrozen. I could go on, but I think I've made my point.
I don't like to give bad reviews to people who obviously have put a lot of time into their fics, but they were my honest opinions. I'm sorry if I offended you.

really sweet story. Thetwo OCs were nice, and I'm a bit surprised at what you did with some characters. Overall, though, a very entertaining story. Though thanks for ruining the ending of terminator 3 for me!
| Locathah 6/29/06 . chapter 11
Er... the bit where it takes Harry 5 minutes to think to try one of the most basic offensive wizarding spells is a bit hard to buy :o It should have been the first thing he tried (though I'm honestly surprised one stupefy would take down a werewolf... didn't it take 3 or 4 to take Hagrid down just because he was a half giant?)
| Locathah 6/29/06 . chapter 10
minor quibble... it wasn't killing one of the daemons that gave Buffy its thoughts, it was coming into contact with its blood.
| Justagirlcalledbob 1/9/06 . chapter 13
dudde...OMG YOU COMBINED ALL MY FAVORITE THINGS INTO ONE!E!
| Velocity9 11/20/05 . chapter 8
Angel SHOULD've exchanged galnces with Buffy and said "What-again?" or Been there, Done that..."
Also, I don't care HOW well connected MI-6 is. No one knows about Clark at least until AFTER his emergence as Superman. I have other quips, but I'm biased. I hate Harry Potter, so I can't be fair.
Also, I just can't see bond leading a bunch of kids.
Your actual writing style is pretty good, tho'!
| Sean Malloy-1 4/23/05 . chapter 28
can't wait for he sequel, please try to post it as soon as you can
| writerR 4/23/05 . chapter 28
that was good, sorry about my last post.
I've never seen the "T" movies.
| writerR 4/17/05 . chapter 27
Good chapter anyway, update soon.
| Naitriab 4/17/05 . chapter 27
Okay now that was cool. I wasn't to sure about Terry when you introduced him however many chapters back it was but that was a good way to deal with Dorien. I'm guessing that you havn't got much left all I'll say then is that I look forward to reading the next part and seeing who you bring in.
So good job on the Terry thing this thing usually works better if someone does not live through it.
