Bio:

My first exposure to Gatch was thru Turners G-Force: Guardians of Space on the then-nascent Cartoon network in 1993. I had to hustle on the walk home from junior high to get home before it started! But I managed to record all but four of the eps and recently transferred them to disc on my DVD recorder/player.

I did not find out more until I rented Final Fantasy #? and it had a commericial for the OAVs on it. (Ever type "G-Force" in a search engine? Nuff said.)

Now I have addicted -ahem, introduced my son and daughter to Gatch in all its glorious forms. My dad thinks the whole thing is silly (altho he does think Zark is worse than R2-D2) but he indulges me.

I am a work-at-home mom currently (candistyping@yahoo.com)*, so I have time to beta. I do not really care much about fanfic being canon, but I am a real stickler for proper spelling, punctuation, etc. I am the beta to call if your spellcheck is on the fritz or you dropped the dictionary in the sink. ;)

I also like Mythbusters, Yu-gi-oh, Sky Surfers, history (any kind), anime, manga, sci-fi, fantasy, and am, in short, an incurable bookworm. I also moderate over at the Darwin Awards.** (www.darwinawards.com)

Reviewer: Candi Gomez Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 05/01/2010 Title: On the Run

Finished the series.

Oh. 

Wow.

This...is just incredible. Amazing, and incredibly realistic.

Keyop dead? *cries* Poor kid. :( Better than I was expecting on the survival rate, though.

THAT'S PRINCESS!?! Wow, when that command 3210 is something else!

Scott has a thing for cars? Hmmmm, I wonder...*reads* Yup.

I thought Mark/Luc was having memory problems because a building dropped on him. And I still don't think it helped. It does, however, make sense that, since the cerebonics make such mental control possible, that there would be some way to use them to stop the implantee from letting lose important information. It's also interesting how Mark feels his memories start to slip away as he's led to be questioned by Zoltar. He apparently puts it down to six months of h- no, that's too nice a word. And woo-hoo for him standing up to Anderson!

I know that you don't say so, but it wouldn't surprise me if if the whole team each has their own command 4566 -just in case.

I feel sorry for Sakuma. "Oh we don't need you, Anderson's foster kids showed up." And we won't tell you they're original G-Force, even though you've obviously cleared for such information since you were invited to be on the new G-Force team. And we didn't think you were important enough to actually leave a message for, but waited for you to show up at the clinic! GOOD GRIEF!! Anderson does NOT know how to handle these things! That said, there are better ways to file a grievance than electrocuting or blowing up a rival.

Anderson is too cautious.

I like Andi. :) I hope Jason finally gets his romantic happy ending. That bit about her being Mark's second cousin actually fits, too.

The business with the Spectrans and the Terran women -I was in junior high in 1993, the year of Bosnia, Serbia, and the rest. The school library wanted some magazine articles on the events over there put in its database. No scanners. No net hookup. They offered extra credit to the (Mac) computer students. Once they were done their classwork. the kids could get extra credit by typing these articles into the databases. I did three and part of a fourth before I decided that I couldn't handle these reports of 'man's inhumanity to man' anymore. But the Spectrans -their rape and imprenate campaign reminds me terribly of those events. Those creeps deserved everything G-Force handed out.

Interesting to note, tho, that it seemed to be mostly the lowest rung soldiers doing the public assaults. This suggests two possiblilities: The higher Spectran hiearchy have a lower occurence of the faulty gene, or they just prefer more privacy. Or both. And I gotta wonder: Did the Luminous One encourage the spread of this gene in the population to keep them dependent?

When mention of a genetic defect that prevents proper functioning of the body came up, I though of cystic fibrosis, which has a similar cause and result, and also needs drugs to treat.

Mark and Princess get married, both in a nice little private ceremony that they obviously wanted and the way that their and their foster father's position practically demanded. Nice.

My hat off to you, my deepest bow, and my longest and loudest applause. You have proven, once again, what a skilled writer and creative artist can do. Please, Keep It Up! :)



Author's Response:

Okay, that's the longest review I've ever had, but it's for 5 fics, so I guess it's okay. ;-)

I had originally intended a higher death rate for the Team (Tiny was supposed to die) but the story took me to another place. And I'm glad I got you with Princess. It was difficult making it a surprise but also revealing it slowly.

You were supposed to feel sorry for Sakuma... or at least understand his actions. He provided an important plot device though: he made the Team come together, without letting Spectra know of their existence. And yeah, Anderson messed a lot of stuff up. It's pretty clear in canon that he didn't deal well with the Don Wade situation, and he never seems to really feel for the Team as *people*, IYKWIM.

Jason and Andie get their romantic ending. ;-)

The purpose of the assaults was to make Earth's population dependent on Spectra, so that the Federation would surrender without a fight. Obviously they were planning on a little more lead time, though. And no, most of the Spectran higherups don't have the gene. They don't want to be dependent on a drug, after all. You never know when that might be a problem. I was thinking a bit of the Jem Hadar in Star Trek DS9 more than something like cystic fibrosis, but it fits within the same mold.idea.

And of course Mark and Princess get it all at the end! Don't they deserve it, after all that? *grin* 

I'm glad that you enjoyed this, and complimented more than you know that you spent such a long time writing this review. Thank you!

I've finally read all three in the series. It took a while because it's hard to read when you're doubled up on the floor with tears in your eyes.

I have not laughed so hard in ages.

And Jun and Rosario's final revenge on the guys... E-VIL.



Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it - I had a great time writing it! As for the final revenge, well - we all know that the female is the far more dangerous of the species, did anyone really think that Ken and Joe were exceptions to that rule? :wink:

Love it! :-D

Summary:

Austin Powers: rewritten for the Gatch/BOTP universe!

Excerpt

“And you will be known as Jason Danger Powers.” finished Anderson in a strained voice. He really couldn’t comprehend how Nambu had been able to accomplish anything with these two.

“So… Danger is my middle name?” the Condor grinned.

“From now on you two are Mark and Jason, collectively known as Team MoJo.”

“Now, let me introduce you to the final member of your team.” Anderson said, opening a door. Mark gasped as Jun entered.

“But, you said Jun would be frozen for another nine months!” he cried.

“This isn’t Jun.” smirked Anderson, pleased to have, at least momentarily, gotten a leg up on these two reckless young men.

“Pleased to meet you… Dad.” grinned the Jun-look-alike, holding out her hand. “I’m Princess.”

The Eagle looked as if he were going to keel over from shock.

“Well, isn’t this a fascinating surprise.” drawled the Condor.

Excuse me while I get my breath back....

Now first of all, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for taking out about 90% of the Austin Powers smut! You left just enough in for flavor so that it works. And Joe/Jason hooking up with Ken/Mark's daughter...only here!

I had to stop several times for ROFLMHO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially when Mark calls himself Ace Goodheart...choke...gasp... I'm ok, I'm ok. :-D

A little heavy on the '70s slang, but that that's my opinion and I know how hard these things can be to judge. :-)

 Good work!



Author's Response: Yeah, I went a little overboard on the slang. But I was trying to slap the reader in the face with the AU. My first draft didn't have so much, and people tended to start slipping back into the BOTP universe mindframe if I didn't remind them that this was something different, KWIM? But I'm glad you enjoyed it. I HAD to throw in Ace Goodheart. What other cover name would he use? *grin*

Summary:

Ken wakes up to the worst day of his life, and it's not the first time.

Excerpt

Ken opened the car door and sat in the driver’s seat, turning the key in the ignition. Nothing. He tried again. No response.

He slammed the car door shut in frustration and walked to the bus stop. A few raindrops splashed onto his jacket.

By the time he got there it had turned into a steady shower. He arrived just in time to see the bus driving away. Great. Now he had to wait for the next one. Checking the time, he realized that he was going to have to hustle to make the meeting on schedule.

Sixty minutes later, a soaking wet Eagle walked up to the security booth at ISO Headquarters and was granted admission. His shoes squelching in the hallway, he made his way to Nambu’s office.

Everyone else was already there. As he surveyed his team, he saw Ryu inhaling the last of the donuts.

This was not turning out to be a good day.

ROFLMHO!!!!!!!!!

This is great! Absolutely great!

Now, usually I detest the "repeat day" story. Up till now, they were boring and bland as all get-out. I avoided this fic for the longest time because of that. But I'm glad I finally read it! You take the whole concept, turn it inside out, upside down, put it thru the blender, and make it new!



Author's Response: Wow, I had no idea tha I had such prejudices to overcome! But I'm glad to hear that I succeeded in doing that. I always try to make my fincs anything but bland... even if that does tend to make them silly. ;-)

Summary:

A boy struggles with life at school. How will this impact the man he is destined to become?

Excerpt

A voice in his head told him that he shouldn’t have to be subjected to this. That he was a valuable person in his own right, and deserved better. The boy had no idea whose voice it was. Maybe something from his barely remembered father? He had scoffed at the words at first, but the more he suffered, the more he listened. They offered him a way out, a salvation. So tonight, he had decided to fight back.

He was hiding.

I was like "okay, who is this" and is wasn't until you mentioned the name "Berg" that I was 100% sure. Very good work! And an interesting insight into how the PDOS learned his "leadership" abilities.

Summary:

What is Keyop really thinking, behind all of his burbles?

Excerpt

“Don’t worry, Keyop.” he said, ruffling my hair, “You’ll fit right in. You’ll see.”

I offered a woeful smile. My father, while a brilliant, and well-intentioned, man, really didn’t know me very well. He wasn’t my real father. I wasn’t even sure who my real father was. I was conceived in a Petri dish, in my father’s laboratory: some kind of experiment to create a ‘genetically perfect’ human.

What they got was far from perfect. But my father didn’t realize that. He had things to do, jobs to perform, and demands on his time because of his position as Chief of Galaxy Security for the Federation of Planets.

Even though I hadn’t seen him much, I loved my father. But he had no idea who I really was. He thought I was some kind of sweet, innocent boy, who looked at life through rose-colored glasses.

He couldn’t have been further from the truth.

I agree with Springie on most of this! LOL!

But...once it was established that Keyop was a foul-thinking, wanna-be-foulmouthed kid, did you have to keep using so many cuss-words? The point was established, and implying that Keyop kept cussing ever three minutes -and allowing the reader to use their imagination- could well have worked just as well. If you want, of course.



Author's Response:

You make a good point, but OTOH, I couldn't think of a good way to carefully phase it out. If he just stopped, then technically there wouldn't be any need for the breeps and broops, right? It just didn't seem right, after I went to some trouble to establish the fact that he did cuss like a sailor, to suddenly take it out.

Summary:

This is the first in a three part series. Mark, Jason and Princess all go on vacation at a ski resort, and things really heat up!

Excerpt

Once or twice, I had even wondered what it might be like to go out with Jason. The girls at Jill’s were head over heels for him, and I had been privy to quite a bit of girl-talk about his nocturnal activities. Apparently he was one hot Condor under the sheets.

I blushed again, just thinking about it. I really shouldn’t have let my mind wander there. It was just that… Jason oozed confidence, and made me feel attractive, even if he wasn’t really interested. Whereas Mark… I was head over heels for the guy, yet we just never seemed to click.

Aggie!? Aggie!?! ROFLMHO!!! I love this!

The last chapter is esp. classic. And the fanfic ramifications of both G-Forces existing in the same universe...loads of fun to be had by all!

Incredible writing, keeping in suspense, and surprise ending: all the things that make for great literature.

It threw me a bit at the three different POVs of the Swan(s), but that was quickly and clearly resolved, and is no cause for complaint.

Good Work!



Author's Response: You know, the funny thing is that Springie and I ahd tosse around the idea of doing a Princess/Aggie sequel, but we never had a good plot come to mind. Any idea? ;-)

Summary:

A behind-the-scenes look at the operation of the G-Force team. How will G-Force defeat their newest enemy?

Excerpt:

Briefly, I wonder why these are called ten second oil breaks. Who made up that name, anyhow? Certainly, not the engineers who designed this device. It takes at least one hundred seconds for the oil to fully circulate through my circuits, and my operating capacity isn’t optimal unless I stay in the changing platform significantly longer than that.

I can barely admit it to myself, but sometimes… sometimes I purposely stay here even longer than I need to. So that I have a chance to relax, too. How angry would Chief Anderson be if he knew that I thought of these as ten thousand second oil breaks?

LOL!!!! "Jason has always had an affinity for puppies. Heck, I’d be willing to bet that he’d risk his own life to save one."  Love it! And nice poke at Gatch and GoS!

This creeped me out more than "Watching Over You" and "Lost Visual Contact" combined. Perhaps because in those, Zark genuinely believed he was helping -with Susan and Rover's aid- while in this, Zark was actively and knowingly working against G-Force, knowing the consequences of his actions. Susan didn't have a clue, but Rover was actively working against Zark. Why'd Rover go to Jason? Who else'd might actually listen to him instead of giving him a rubber wrench and a pat on his chrome dome head?

Are you going to post the deleted scene as well? Or at least the link to the post at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BotP/message/35628  ? That's a good read in itself!



Author's Response:

LOL, I just *had* to put the puppy reference in there when I had Jason working with Rover. Glad you enjoyed it!

I dunno about the 'deleted scene'... I never really liked it much. I tend to think of it more as 'background material' that  isn't necessarily meant to be part of the story. When I'm only using one character's POV I'll often have this kind of thing floating around in my notes. It helps me build the story and make it consistent, but it doesn't all necessarily have to be reveals, KWIM? But I'm glad you liked reading that bit.

In any case, you've posted the link for me right here. *evil grin*

Summary: Jun decides to cook the Christmas turkey.... with surprising results! Apologies to Dr. Seuss and the makers of A Christmas Story the movie.

Excerpt

“Joe!” he called, beckoning to his second-in-command, “Come say hello to Granny Nambu!”

The look Joe threw at Ken would have made a dozen Galactor agents run screaming in fear. But the Eagle just grinned.

“Hi, Granny.” Joe muttered. He gave her as quick a peck as possible, holding his breath as he got close to her. He hated the smell of mothballs.

“Little Joey!” exclaimed Granny, in delight. “How wonderful to see you!”

Granny grabbed the Condor around the neck and held him in an iron grip, oblivious to his flailing attempts to get free.

“My, you’re such a big boy now! Why I remember when you used to run around my house without a stitch on. You were such a naughty boy… but you had such a cute, little tushie!”

With that she pinched Joe’s bottom.

*snicker* I love this!

Sounds like the team needs to learn to 'double-talk' on their conversations: verbal for listeners, mental for themselves. There are some beautiful examples in Anne McCaffrey's Rowan books, esp. Lyon's Pride.

I'll avoid the jokes of them already being mental..:P

I love the screen caps all thru it. It's also interesting cause the little elf in my mind kept popping in with, "That pic's from the _____ ep!" :-)

A wonderfully done story, and a lovely compliment to the Condor and Swan tales.

Beautiful.

Summary:

Jason & Princess take an unexpected detour: to Spectra!

Excerpt

Swinging the paddle in the air, he made contact, hitting it across the ping pong table. The ball bounced into the wall and chipped the paint.

“Whatcha doin’ Mark?” asked Keyop, drumming in wild, random patterns.

“Force of habit.” Mark replied in frustration. “I keep forgetting that Jason’s not here. I’m so used to his being on the other side of the table that I make shots before I can stop myself.”

“Miss Princess too!” answered Keyop. “Music not same, without her.”

“You’re telling me!” said Tiny. He had been covering his ears between Spaceburgers all afternoon.

“I just wish Jason and Princess would come home already!” Mark snapped in frustration, shooting another ball. This one bounced off of the overhead light.

“Where are they?” he continued, as if the white ball weren’t continuing to ricochet between the floor and ceiling.

$100 dollar question: Since Jason and Princess knew that the mech would be used to attack either Earth or Riga, why didn't they wait until they were actually on the mission before escaping?

That business with the tranmitter was hilarious, tho. :D



Author's Response:

They didn't know how closely they'd be monitored, plus they didn't know how much destruction might ensue if the mecha were in a position to attack. Regardless, given the fluffy nature of the fic, I just let it pass. ;-)

Glad you liked the transmitter! My favorites are Susan's moving presence, and the killer bunnies.

Summary: Around April 22, 1999, my web site suddenly sputtered and then disappeared. Many of you have been wondering where my web pages, and myself, were for those few days. Well, I wasn't going to say anything, since its all considered 'top secret', but considering you are all such good friends, and I know you would never squeal to anyone associated with Spectra, I figured I could tell you. So, here's the story:

ROFLMHO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I personally think that Teresa was very good at her old job, and someone realized she had that something that the Tin Can didn't have. Also, from the way she describes her data on the shuriken poison disappearing, I have to wonder: was it really lost? Or just moved?

I like seeing how she learns the ways and wherefores of Nerve Center -and how frustrated she is about how "clearance" keeps popping up. This is also a good look at the war with Spectra after Center Neptune was attacked.

Very enjoyable and realistic. And I feel sorry for Teresa in one aspect: we can yell at our TVs' when Zark comes on, but she has to supress it! :-P

Candi



Author's Response: Regarding the disappearing research data: ah, that's a matter for the sequel story. Which is coming along rather slowly, but it is moving. (It's been very stubborn, drat the thing.) When it's finished, I'll post it here. I can confirm that it will contain more information about why Teresa was reassigned and just what the heck she's doing in NCC. ;)

Summary: Spectra has been defeated, which means the team is out of a job. What are five kids supposed to do to make a living?? :)

A gripping, well written story. But...was it necessary to include so much swearing? It didn't really add anything to the story, and was very distracting.

I agree with Ebonyswanne...I also loves how she deals with them and "accidentally" tells Jun how much money she gave Ken...and how Joe helps Jun get it!

I had to watch some Yu Yu Hakusho to understand, but now I agree with Botan; Koenma has a demented sense of humor. :-)

BWAHAHAHA!!! ROFLMHO!!!

I first saw this back when Lori McDonald still had her site up.This has been one of my absolute favorites for years.

I-I-I don't think Jun's going to let him keep the lizard, tho. ;)

At least they know who to call if Godzilla goes on another rampage!

Great work!

I agree with the confusion, but this was well written.

Don't worry about it being off-canon...what's the fun of writing fanfic if you don't mess with the canon on occasion? >:-)
