Comment on I Saved the World and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt

  1. Wow. Wow. I love this - so many little touches about it, from Rabbit and Chloe bantering (I did so love their banter, lol), to Chloe's relationship with her mom (painful, still - but a note of hope and healing), to the bits about not being done with Gustov and how she's so famous and the ways she tries to keep people from recognizing her… thank you so much for writing this for me! This is a perfect post-Cybergeddon fic. :D

    (Also, I love that you didn't have her be with Frank. I didn't realize just how much I didn't like that in canon - "ambivalent", not so much, apparently - until I read your fic and went "yessssss, this is right".)

    1. Woot! So stoked that you enjoyed this! There were a ton of great prompts in your letter, both pre- and post-canon, but once I had the mental image of (Chloe's reaction to) Rabbit rocking a t-shirt with Chloe's face on it, I couldn't resist going for post-canon, with a bit of mother-daughter relationship navigation mixed in. ^_^

      Thanks for pimping this fandom in the fandom pimping post!

      1. I did, I did! I have re-read it a half-dozen times. :D (Oh, just spotted Wall-Mart - it's actually Wal-Mart - think it was named after the Waltons, which only have one L in their name, which explains the spelling.) And that is a hilarious image, I totally love that spot where he's all "Too much?" and she's ready to just hit him, hee. It is really the best post-canon fic.

        I did hope it would attract someone! I'm glad it was successful. :D

        1. (Ack - thanks for the catch and the how-to-remember trick! I'd assumed it came from Walled-Market or something along those lines.)

          1. It's a logical spelling! The reason I remember where it comes from is there's some hullabaloo about the Walton family (Walmart - which is actually the way I see it the most - but I've seen Wal-Mart too!) and politics and whatever. Plus I always thought of the Waltons like the TV show when I heard of them, lol.
