|Reviews for One Night on Monitor Duty|
| Khiori chapter 1 . 5/28/2012
Love this story! So delightful to see a 'behind the scenes' idea-and one carried off with humor and a real feel. Grin, moniter duty is like flight control for superheroes-not for the faint of heart! Awesome work!

I really like how you wrote about someone having the monitor duty. Too often do people forget how important it is for someone to monitor situations and coordinate people and delegate tasks. Plus the humor was awesome. And I love the actual intelligence and information that you have here. Especially with Booster Gold, even if he is not one of my favorite characters. And in the end with Vigilante talking about the purple starfish sounds like the enemy from Batman Beyond when it took control of Superman and then the rest of the league. Kind of cool that you mentioned it.

"Batman had finally conceded that a scientist walking around with a black hole stuck in his chest was a tad more urgent than crowd control duty."
i literally just watched that episode last night and it's awesome. thank you for the Booster Gold story, there aren't nearly enough of them on this site, i loooove Booster

Good story. It was a bit jarring to see Booster analyzing the more complex problems and making strategic decisions, but that is something one would expect to learn how to do in the training sessions along with the technical details. I don't think strategic planning got enough focus, though. I'm very sorry to begin my review on such a negative tone, because everything else was great. I loved Booster trying to handle the various requests, and I loved the beginning, clearing the air about the crowd control situation and pointing out what how Booster was justified and what he did wrong.

I really enjoyed this fic. The setup was well executed and totally believable (assming you had already suspended your DISbelief and could accept the ida of a team of superheroes deending the earth ;). The pacing was hectic and fast and did an excellent job of putting memore in Boosters mindset as he ried to not fail miserably.

I really enjoyed this piece! Poor Booster, the kid must've been feeling so lost. I love the cameos that you managed to get in there- great portrayal of some of the lesser-known/seen characters. And you got in Doctor Light! :D
This was a fun read, and very well written. :) Keep it up!

What, that was way too fun! I've got to give you props for coming up with the emergencies, they were pretty fun and funny and the way that Booster dealt with them (with the help of Skeets, of course) was really well depicted - you definitely built up the hilarious tension that our poor hero was feeling.
And oh man, my favorite part of the story for some reason was Nemesis, even though he was only one of the multitudes of heroes that poor Booster encountered that night. I definitely laughed out loud with each passing request. Hilarious! Thanks for a good read :)

Wow! That was pretty darn good! I think you nailed it on both parts. First what monitoring duty mus tbe like and Booster's character (at least from the TV series).
Congrats on an excellent story. Extremely well done!
Looking forward to more from you so keep up the good work!

Great story! I don't think Booster expected his monitor duty to be so... interesting.

Good story! It has been awhile since I have read JL but I remember a lot of the characters. If monitor duty was that hectic all the time, they really should put more heroes on watch.
You might want to edit that part about "the last half hour minutes".
And thanks for the note on the good Doctor Light. It helped a lot.
