| Vierge chapter 11 . 10/15/2010
Well, if you've got Beach around in a battlefield, carnage and property damage come guaranteed. Then again, pissed-off ninja promise all of the above AND lots of blood spatter too.
I'm glad they let Ace go all scorched-earth on the property. I have this image of him gleefully shooting down anything left standing until what was once a mountaintop fortress has been reduced to nothing but a huge, black, smoking crater. Sometime in the distant future, people will see that crater, and wonder whether it was caused by a meteor strike or some such thing. Bet that comparison would make Ace really happy, too.
Any child born of ninja simply does not have it in his or her genetic makeup to be scared by the sort of thing his or her parents do. Then again, any child born to Joe parents will never be a coward, ever. It doesn't really surprise me, then, that the kids have survived this entire encounter with their psyches unscathed.
And gee, thanks for the cliffhanger! I mean, I do like a good one now and again, but hot damn, that one was EVIL! I don't know whether to congratulate you for it or hate the fact that you put it where you did. Either way, though, I definitely look forward to upcoming carnage.

No surprise that the courtyard is in as bad a shape as that. And color me unsurprised that they decided to go scorched earth on the compound.
Terri learning explosives and swearing from BeachHead. Scary thought. A story for another day?
Speaking of which, Covergirl and BeachHead's kids? Throw in Terri, Sean, and Taro, and let the good times roll.
Mild cliffhanger by my standards, but a good one nonetheless. I look forward to your next update. Take care.

Great story and thanks so much for the update. I like all the banter, though it is a bit of a stretch to include Snake Eyes ASL dialogue and everyone looking and understanding it. But then again with the whole group having known and worked with Snake Eyes and becoming battle comrades with him, I guess it sort of works out to have the other Joes know sign language.
I loved the inclusion of Ace in this chapter as Ace has always been a favorite character of mine. The stuff about wanting to blow up the remains of the compound had me on the floor. I also like that Scarlett was thinking it was a good idea to blow the place up too. And I like that Storm Shadow was just like, "*sigh*, Pilots." Just glad Ace is on our side.
Also thanks for posting the *adult* rated stories for Junko and Storm Shadow on AFF. They were freaking awesome. We need lots more material like that for GI Joe since most similarly themed material is garbage but yours is extremely well written. We need it for Scarlett/Snake as well!
All the martial arts information is really keen as well. Keep up the great work.

I just read all the chapters and I love the story! Great action and great romance. The only thing I hate is the cliffhanger. Please post more soon! :)

you are evil for the cliffhanger but i'm loving that the kids are back safe and sound and aw to terri wanting to see more stuff blown up, very cute and as i said, then i would so love to babysit the three of them if there was someway i could guarantee i wouldn't get stabbed, ninja training perhaps? oh, that'd be a nice bonus, hm, i wonder if trading myself as an eternal babysitter for the offspring of sotrm shadow and snake eyes would be enough to get them to train me

Ah, cliffhanger! Evil woman.
Great chapter! Love the banter and winding down while still on the way to go kill more people. Very much looking forward to the next installment.

Ahhhhhhhh! Cliffhanger! Well turnabout is fair play. Dang it. Loved the discussion on exploding things, the banter among everyone, the pilots gleefully destroying the compound remnants. "Only when ah ask her real nice." made me snort breakfast through my nose. Looking forward to more mayhem. Never a better group to do that.

I kinda thought this story was already completed for some reason, though in these cases I'm glad to proven wrong. Very funny scene in the passenger area. Apparently the old chemistry of trading barbs hasn't faded from the team's system, and the kids add a wonderful dynamic as well. Good cliffy, really makes want to see what's ahead. Until next time.

Evil. Cliffhangers are so mean...but this was awesome, I loved it. Lots of greatness, and explosions, and general awesomeness. Can't wait to see what happens next.

im guessing he clan is either surrendering or a faction inside the clan is angry they pissed off the arashikage and us military backing behind them and have decided on a family feude trying to kill the other half that made the decision or cobra is there burning the place to the ground hmmm

Okay . . . when I saw this update I squealed, but at the same time I was sad because I was afraid the story was over. I'm thrilled to see that it isn't. :D So really, I don't mind a cliffhanger, because it just means yay! MORE STORY!
Also, I swear you read my mind, because this chapter had everything I could possibly ask for. Cute kids-cute but not annoying, that is, which kids too often are in stories. Ace playing with the missiles had me laughing out loud (and I don't blame him. It's exactly what I would've done with that kind of ordinance!). I also liked the little aside about the possibility of Beach and Cover Girl reproducing . . . I would love to be a fly on the wall at the O'Hara-Arashikage-Sneeden playgroup.
And the history, too-you really know your stuff, and as my dad says, it's always a pleasure to hear history taught by someone who knows it well. Thanks so much for this!

KenDO is "The way of the Sword" A sport that evolved from KenJUTSU, "The Art of the Sword", which is the Art of Sword fighting.

That fight was awesome!
I really like how you described it.
"Step, cut, parry, duck, thrust, pivot and slam a side kick into his chest, Junko's got him now, step again, cut…"
You list the actions, a few thoughts and keep going. It really makes it feel like he is acting on reflex. But with the little bits of thought in there, it isn't dull or boring. Actually, it was exciting.
I kinda wish they had suffered a bit more. But with ninja, I suppose you can't keep them alive long enough to punish them, because they are so very dangerous.
BEACHHEAD! BWUAHAHAHA! *glomp*
Thank you so much for bringing him into this fanfiction. I laughed when I read about the "shuriken stuck in his body armor". Rofl. That was a nice touch. xDD
Excellent! I loved it!
Until next time.
With love, hugs and cookies!

Do they seek out the client now? :)
Very nice, love the kids being almost too much to handle almost by themselves. I'm glad they're all okay (for now anyway, couldn't help but notice this isn't marked complete yet). Looking forward to what comes next, as always.
Now that the kids are all fine, I do wonder whether Billy and T. are still in a whole lot of trouble of just a little.

O, excellant. Mayhem, brutal fighting, ninjas.. yep! Love that little mini-ninjas are just as vicious!
