| Wolvmbm chapter 80 . 9/14/2010
I must say this was a speedy chapter that surely does brings things up to speed and gives our heroes the true advantages that they so desire.
Also...it's been 2 weeks since the invasion started ?
I almost thought it was two months or even longer given the length of chapters and how much desperate the situations were. :(
Still nice to see Mia back and great way of showing HOW she return form her mind controlled form. Great to see her in action in ways that even I never read her do it in any of your previous chapters. :D
Nice hint to Nega-Gos. Death and short memory moment. :D
Also great to see Techno still active and non-mind-controlled, but now the good guys know it too. :D
And hear, hear to Quackerjack and Bushroot as they were a great aid in the rescue of Darkwing.
I must say it did seem Anti-clamtic that DW was once again stuck in the Nega-verse, I mean like Crisom stated before, I was hoping for something different and dangerous this time around, but yet his fate in the Nega-verse this time seems fitting given Negaduck's hatred for him.
Also nice intro with Nega Hooter, something tells me that he maybe a much dangerous threat in the future, if Negs is ever defeated. :(
So Gigavolt returns in this chapter, very cool and interesting predicament that he's in, I can't wait to see his final decison.
Now Darkwing duck is BACK again, and this time the city is in true danger from the forces of evil. :(
So it's going to take a miracle for him to pull this off. :(
Also does DW know of EVERYTHING That happen since he was capture, especially the truth about Darkwarrior's past ? :(
Nice update to the storyline indeed, I can't wait to read more of it. :D
I also must ask if you have been reading the Darkwing Duck comics from Boom Studios as they too have Negaduck within it a bit. :D
Please do keep up the wonderful work upon such a great storyline like this one as I can't wait to see what you have planned for the next chapter. :D

Nice to have you back, even if it's for a temporary time. Especially in light of Darkwing's return in comics book form. I wonder if you have been collecting the issues so far since it's now an on-going series ? :D
I must say this nice twist in the parallel Universe versions of Gosayln is interesting. Especially with Dark Avenger's Anger on Crimson are wrongly directly on her and with her and Nega-Crimson on a similar side of fighting against Negaduck in the end, let just say it's going to be a challlenge for Negaduck to overcome with 3 different Gosaylns on his tailfeathers for different reasons.
Now on to the reveal of the Thunderquack and Lauchpad's return, nice idea indeed and a great increase with the good guys chances in reversing Negerian's magic affects. And Bushroot and Quackerjack's switch to the good guys was a surprise as well. :D
Plus the whole Darkwarrior's revealation of him being married to that world version of Christine, truly does change and up the ante on the whole Morgana-Drake-Christine and possibly Bob love square gone wrong. I mean WHEN Darkwing is truly found, let just say it's not going to be easy for him to chose just one, am I right ? :(
So this chapter does show some good light in such a grim situation. :D
Please do keep up the good work upon such a great storyline like this one as I can't wait until I read what you have planned for the next chapter. ;D

Hooray, it's back!
Anyway, I like how you did Warrior! Gosalyn. She makes a very effective villain. Despite what she says I don't think she'll end with her vengeful plot - even if it wasn't inevitable that she find out the truth, she's far too unstable to be anything but a threat to anyone. At least Darkwarrior was obsessed with "Justice," she's all rage, but she thinks she's balancing the scales. The worst villains are those who think are doing right but are actually the furthest from it.
And her shift to the dark side (so to speak) was done perfectly. Warrior! Gos doesn't go evil, or even megalomaniacally tyrannical per-se, she goes insane (or at least a highly unstable sociopathic), and there's a real "what might have been" vibe there, and I love how you accentuated it with the side by side view of both universes.
It's got a real jarring effect, especially since Warrior! Gos starts out simultaneously the least dark and, possibly, the most like Gosalyn herself. It's a "similar, yet ended up completely different" type way, but different than NegaGos- NegaGos has the cause of being brainwashed by Negaduck and growing up in a place that is quite literally the complete opposite of Gosalyn's home, but Warrior! Gos started out so much like what Gos herself might have been if she wasn't Crimson, and she lost her mind.
She didn't go evil, she just lost it all, and it's jarring in a way that Gosalyn doesn't see yet but isn't lost on the reader: it would be quite an experience to meet another version of yourself who is so similar, except they've snapped. Again, it's sort of a "not so different, what might have been" vibe, and it's very well done.

Another great chapter that introduces another double, this time Gos', and returns LP and two of our missing "villains" to the story line. And they have flight capablility again. I'm very happy with this addition and hope to see more as you find time.

Glad you updated. This was a wonderful chapter.
Keep the good writing.
| Malarity chapter 79 . 8/11/2010
Wow, glad to see another action-filled chapter from you! Just curious, have you been keeping up with the new Darkwing Duck comic by Boom! Studios? Darkwarrior Duck will be returning, along with some new "alternate" Darkwings. I don't know why, but it immediately made me think of your fic, perhaps because you've fleshed out quite a background for your AU Darkwarrior :)

Uh Oh- the nanites are now in lewis!

It took forever to read up to this point, but this is a very cool, detailed, and interconnected story that has kept my attention. I must now formally insist on an update sometime before 2012 (the end of the world). Good luck on school stuff.

Based on your last author's note, it's possible you've already hung up your writing tools for the hiatus you're taking, but I'm hoping I'm sneaking in before the bell. Basically, I wanted to say thank you. Darkwing Duck was one of, if not the number one, favorite cartoon of mine growing up. I'm not sure what prompted me to look up the fanfiction category for it, but once I stumbled across your stories I felt like I had rediscovered a piece of my childhood that I didn't realize I'd lost. These new adventures that you took such familiar characters on were a joy to read. I loved every minute of it.
Best of luck while you're away. I look forward to that day in the future when you can return and wrap up this phenomenal story.

Well, you said I'd like this arc, and you were right. You meshed the lighthearted swashbuckling world of Talespin with the (somewhat) darker and more suspenseful world of DW perfectly. The Sea Duck flies again!
I especially like the "never found the body" ending: keeping it virtually unknown what happened to Kit (and Karnage). You've got me guessing - when Scrooge mentioned the pilot he trusted in A Time Of Darkness, I immediately assumed Kit had found the Fountain Of Youth or something (I think they found it in either Ducktales or Talespin... though it might have been a hoax) and returned to help in any way he could. That situation wasn't it, but I'm still guessing.

Well, you said this chapter would be sad, and you delivered. Poor Honker...
It's like how most of this chapter was Honk as himself, rather than dealing with things as techno. One of the fun things about the old show was that DW spend a fair bit of time as Drake Mallard, and we got to see how he dealt with his wacky home life and, of course, we got a whole bunch of family love btw him and Gosalyn in and out of costume. It's not "fun" in any way in this case, but you hopefully get what I mean.
Oftentimes in this fic the characters are all-business, so to speak: don't get me wrong, they constantly connect and empathize with each other and express their feelings, it isn't always a big focus (depends on the chapter, you might say).
Not that that's a problem, really, but it's nice to have a chapter that deals more with their (for lack of a better word) "real" lives.
I wonder what the long-reaching effects of this will be... he's always been sort of repressed (except for around Gos, and even then), but... At least he's not depressed anymore, but such a moment of cold rage coming from nice-guy Honker is *shudder* worthy at least... If the Davidson gang reappear, here's hoping he can keep himself sane and clearheaded, or they're all in for trouble.

Well, I've finally reached the end (it only took me three or four days ;-) ), and I have to say, this is among the best stories I've ever read on this site and elsewhere. It's well put together, and that's a huge understatement.
I especially like the way you've set it up, I don't know of anyone on this site whose set up a story in a similar way: most stories here go through a set plot and everything rises and falls according that, but here the plot is just the lead in, creating the world while arcs occur on their own rather than following a track. In short, you've created a world that's episodic and epic at the same time: while it does follow arcs, these arcs are only part of the whole world you've created.
In shorter, you've created a universe rather than a story, creating a world rather than a plot - the way comics work, the way the tv show this story is based on worked, etc. Because of that, as long as you can keep thinking of new story ideas, you can conceivably keep doing this forever - because of the way it's set up, the story doesn't have to end until you want it to, as long as there are villains or prospective villains that could appear, return and rethreaten, threats of all shapes and sizes that could possibly come about, and events that could otherwise effect their lives, then DW, Crimson, Techno, and Launchpad's adventure could never stop.
Your development of the characters is choice as well. The story of NegaGos, for example, still keeps me guessing and wondering, and she's such a complex character that you just have to stay around to see what will happen to her.
Though I wonder, if so many of the Fearsome Five are not-so-bad guys who just chose to be villains, what does that mean for the Friendly Five? ;-).
I'll go back and comment on other chapters, but I wanted to finish first. Absolutely amazing story.

I like what you did with Megavolt. Even moreso than Negaduck, I remember Megavolt as being an archenemy of Darkwing's (him appearing more often than any of the others (I think) may have had something to do with it), although a goofy-and-somewhat-hapless-despite-being-dangerous archenemy. A more powerful and consistently competent Megavolt is a daunting threat indeed...
It's sad that of all the Fearsome Five, Quackerjack's the one who decided to hate the good Negavolt most, given that they teamed up all the time in the show and seemed to be... sort of friends. Quackerjack enjoyed messing with Sparky in any case. Then again, he could be feeling betrayed.
Also, as a reply to your reply to my response to your writing (ah, alliteration always aims to accentuate the awesome), please don't think I was complaining: I love what you've done, this is among my favorite stories on this site. I was just wondering where the rest of the rogues gallery was - whenever a work reimagines what came before, and expands it's universe that much more, I get that much interested (plus there the nostalgia attack I always get XD). That said, I absolutely love your new villains as well (Nanite's deviously evil, and Frogduck and Rowe are hilarious and extremely loveable), you're really making DW, CA, Launchpad and Techno their own new rogues gallery. Maybe I just love how you're meshing the new with old to create something even bigger.
I also love how it's been a couple days and I still have twenty chapters to go. This is definitely a great read. And judging by the lack of Complete sign, it's ain't over yet!
Also, why does Jax seem like a perfect candidate for future supervillainess to me? Maybe it's my love of comics talking, but give a person that much spite, jealousy, obsession and amorality, and add just a pinch of power and maybe a dash of knowledge, and they can really hurt...

Everything else in this chapter is instantly overshadowed by Cape Suzette. Completely, and utterly overshadowed (I loved Talespin even more than Ducktales and DW back in the day). At the time of this series it has to be at least 70 years since the events of Talespin... I wonder if Kit Cloudkicker's still around?
I guess I'll find out, eh?
As for the rest, I like how you're developing NegaGos' character. Instead of instantly diving towards good or evil, it looks like she's evil without her heart in it, and she's more like a neutral force reaching a crossroads at breakneck speed (though that might be what you call mixing metaphors).
One thing I notice is that you seem to be ignoring the less overtly deadly villains of the Darkwing universe: Jambalaya Jake, Tuskerninni, Ammonia Pine, those hat aliens who hate Honker, etc, and even a couple others who are more dangerous but less prominent, like Camille Leon. Even the fearsome five have dropped out of the spotlight as of late, but I suppose that's to be expected given that the Multiverse plots are rapidly coming to a head. I am only 3/5 of the way through, after all.
Looking forward to reading the rest of this great story!

This chapter was completely hilarious, especially the part where he accidentally blows himself up.
