Heh. Well, Al-Hazard has more to do with their backstory than anything that's actually going to happen in the future... but yes, things are of course going to get screwed up.

That's only if your ship was designed like a sphere, with the AG source at the core. That's a good design, avoids boundary problems that other designs with AG would have. I'm not sure if Bureau ships are designed that way though.
Well... luckily we have no idea how TSAB ships are designed at all beyond how they look and a few systems they have. So I'm totally free to say 'it works that way because magic' and nobody can definitively prove me wrong.

Stunning chapter. But, like I said, how are you going to top this one in the future? And if you do, dealing with the Doctor will seem like a vacation for Nanoha and company by the time Strikers rolls around.
Oh, I have my ways. I. Have. Plans. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

And to be frank, I found Scaglietti and the Numbers to be underwhelming villains anyway, so I have no real problem with topping them, either.

Not totally free. There are a few clues from the interiors of ships that we can see. One, the decks are flat not curved as if they were the surface of a sphere. While it is possible to arrange flat decks around a "core," those decks would have to be relatively small in surface area. Otherwise, it would appear as if you're walking up an incline near the outer areas of the deck.
Two, TSAB ships can fly around planetside. This could... cause problems if the ship's habitable space was a sphere with part of its "up" pointed towards the surface of the planet.

Ah-hem.

You must have mis-read me.

I didn't say 'it works because the ship is spherical and logically an AG system like the one I described requires a spherical design'. We do know what the ships look like, after all, and they're clearly not spheres.

I said, 'it works because magic'. A wizard did it. He used magic, and gravity happened.

... have I sufficiently shown that my grasp of hard Sci-fi is nonexistent and I actually just included that passage as an offhanded joke?

Now that I thought about it,
Quote:
It doesn't pull you 'down', it pulls you 'towards the center of the ship'
would imply that everything were drawn towards the center of the ship instead of the bottom like always shown...

But fair enough, I suppose. Everyone has different opinion on these things.
On the issue of copy/pasting reviews from AS to fanfiction.net (or from beta-reading copy to public forum), I tend to support doing it, and do it myself (like with that one Erio/Lutecia short of Raiser's I liked, or deathcurse's GrimGrimoire fics). The way I see it, my original review was for the benefit of the author, while in essence when I repost a review to fanfiction.net, I'm posting for the benefit of potential readers: essentially, reviews there serve a secondary function as advertising for a fic--which, y'know, is what the word review actually implies (for example, when I see a fic I'm curious about, I'll generally click on the reviews first, and if every single review is a one-liner from somebody with craptacular spelling and incoherent commentary, I'll probably pass that fic by, but if I see a bunch of other people have written coherent or interesting reviews, I'll probably give it a shot).

It is. There's quite a high concentration of awesome. And funny. Often simultaneously.

I find that I'm iffy on the "I liked it. Please update" reviews...I admit, it's nice to get even those, but at the same time I'd rather have 5 people read a story of mine and really engage with the story and have at least one interpretive comment, than have 100 people read it mindlessly . But that's just me!
Can we get both?

Quote:
Your review recipients appreciate the half-hour to an hour reviews . Of course, then it's a half-hour to an hour to respond to your review ....but worth the time, every time!
...and then I end up sucked into PM threads where every post is of similar length, one for every chapter I review.

SubaTea shippers tend to be relatively sane...by comparison. Especially now that we all know Subaru's going to be just another one of Thoma's haremettes.

And apparently co-opting Jail into your plot to inflate his whelm-ness.

Awesome as always, Mozco.

...is it bad if I kinda cheered at the end of the chapter? Those three have probably EARNED some payback by now, all things considered.

He's not going to get much screentime, but I'm looking forward to what he does get. I might not have thought too much of his threat as a villain, but I really enjoyed his personality and I fully intend to ham it up big time.

Hey, go ahead. Just means I managed to make the villains likable, and considering they're my OCs that makes me quite happy!

Hammy, bombastic Jail? I approve.

Yeah, they're some of the better OCs I've seen. Susanoo in particular is a big, lovable oaf.
