I got a couple of rather negative reviews for my last drabble at the Pit of Voles (AKA Fanfiction.net):

I think you are suffering from a case of mistaken identity. Scott's blasts produce zero heat. They are purely concussive, ei, they push either u, or the push a neat little whole through you. ALex, though, Scott's brother also known as havok, produces cosmic radiation, which emits through his hands. That might burn Glory quite effectively...

why do people force me to sign up just so i can tell them they screwed up?

and
Aside from J's comments, I'd like to add that in order to vaporize Glory, you'd need about as much heat/damage dealt as two FAEs('least according to the RPG). And there is no way in HELL that Dawn, who just activated her Mutant Power, would A) be able to use it so easily, B) be able to produce THAT much energy. Hell, I doubt Cyclops or Havok could. This just boils down to X-Men Fanwankery. Bad form, that.

Okay, the first is possibly a valid point, apart from the crap spelling, the second is just fan-wank. So I've posted another chapter just for ff.net

100-word Buffy / X-Men crossover Drabble, a response to certain reviews of the previous chapter. Characters are the property of their respective creators and are used without any intention of infringing copyright. This story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis.

Genetic Anomoly

By Marcus L. Rowland


"That was amazing," said Scott Summers, staring at Glory's smouldering corpse "I couldn't have done it."

"Yeah, well I only got some of your genes," said Dawn, "obviously my mutation's gonna be different."

"I suppose so."

"Think about it - no two mutants have identical powers, why would anyone except an obsessive fanboy think otherwise? I'm not a Buffy clone, so why should I be a Scott clone."

"Nobody's arguing," said Buffy. "By the way, what happened to those fanboys?"

"Oh, Glory sucked their brains while they were saying I couldn't kill her. Some garbage about role-playing games."

"No loss."

Am I being too harsh?
