Not to mentio the song hellfire is extremely dark for a disney movie.

I've seen this around the site , very annoyed I never got the chance to read this before. just finished doing so in one sitting.
first thing I wanna say: Yay Avaric! its about time someone stuck him in a story XD even if it was just a very minor Clopin part.
a very original idea also, THBOND is possibly the last thing I would consider when writing a Wicked crossover, so points there for creativity. I love how you wrote for Boq (I think I had minor fan-girl seizures on almost every page, especially at the end).
the writing style is also very smooth and witty and keeps the story flowing nicely.
the only criticism that I have is the dialogue, quite a lot of it seems to be copied right from the Disney film. Since this is a crossover then that's sorta okay. but you're possibly one of the most creative writers I've found on here, I know you can do much better with getting the characters to fit with the speech :P
YAY! long Review. I'ma gonna go look at your other stuff nows.

First of all, let me say that I think you have quite a wonderful idea here; it’s unique to the fandom, and the corresponding roles you’ve given to all our favourite characters are extremely well matched. I love the idea of Dillamond being Djali and Fiyero having all of Phoebus’ subtle snark and wit as well as his rigid morality. However, in all honesty, I don’t think you’ve taken it far enough.
Most overtly, you’ve practically copy-pasted a large amount of dialogue straight out of the Hunchback movie without really adapting it for the Wicked characters; reading your story, I often felt like it was a film transcript, not a fanfic, and I think it would work so much better if you allowed yourself to take more liberties. For instance, I can see Elphaba being a gypsy, but not a dancer – Esmerelda is a much more sensual character than she. “What’s a poor girl to do?” is not something she would ever say, and it jerked me out of the story. It feels like you’ve simply written a green-skinned Esmerelda and given her a different name. The same goes for details of the plot; the general idea works, of course – that’s what makes your idea so great in the first place – but smaller things like the woven map and the stairs in a tomb don’t; not as well.
In contrast, the parts that you did change – such as the tin form being a punishment for Ozymandias, and him honestly loving Boq – are brilliant, and the things I most enjoyed reading..
I’ve spent a week or so debating with myself whether to give this review at all, given that I’m essentially suggesting a re-write, but I think it’s worth saying. I love your idea, but I think you could do it a lot better if you gave yourself more freedom to write your own story and truly blend the original two. I hope you don't take offence.

This is an amazing story! You have a lot of great ideas and I love reading a good Fiyeraba story. Could you do another Wicked crossover? Keep on writing!
P.S.: I hate Gelphie and their fans, too. :P
P.S.S: The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a badass movie. ;)

I do like how you made Boq transform at the end to reflect his growth as a character within the story. I really enjoyed this.
| alinaandalion 8/29/09 . chapter 13
I really like how you write Boq, since this is a different point of view from what is normally taken, if only due to the fact that this is based on HBND.

Boq and Fiyero crack me up in this story. There is never any real interaction between the two in most stories, so this makes for a nice change.

GREAT JOB! Loved it!
| crazybeagle 8/25/09 . chapter 15
This was a spectacular story all around and I'm very very happy with how quickly you updated it.
I giggled in a very fangirlish manner when Glinda kissed him at the end...
Now get to work on BtEC! I'm, like, your biggest fan! :P

About the biblical references thing- very cool! I picked up on some of them but I was too eager to get to the chapter to look for all of them.
I was unaware that Veronica was a biblical name. Is that in one of the four gospels or is it in the Catholic bible?
About Boq "dying"- It's about frickin time you changed him back! I guess he "learned his lesson" or something...yay
I thought he was going to fall of the balcony and get totally smashed and then Elphaba was going to have to do something (like change him back).
"She collapsed into angry sobs, pounding on his metal chest furiously..." Not exactly a good thing to be doing if she thinks he's actually dying, I would think lol unless she's trying to do CPR on a robot ;D
