Well, then, here's some.

I've finally taken a vow to start reading those big LNH stories, because what 
else can I do when people give me free fiction I can read on my cell phone, and 
it's not one of those sexy popular cell phones that *everyone* publishes for. 
Thank you, LNH!

I've always had a problem getting past the in-jokes, like 
  For this exercise, I just substituted Whatever Lad.  Don't make me invoke him 
again!  That said...

It was a nice study of ultimate power.  I'm taking notes, because I might have 
to deal with that same concept myself soon.  But I think you missed the old 
trope, "... I wish I had ten wishes more!"

It's probably good you resolved the plot, rather than leaving it dangling. 
(Insert name of character here) was as good a way as any, even though I don't 
understand (insert gender if relevant)'s powers.  (Insertions provided in place 
of spoiler alerts)

I'm starting to respect some of the LNHers as characters.  Ultimate Ninja's 
increasingly cool, and Ripping Dancer certainly had her moment.  And it was a 
good action story.  Nice job.

Only their myths concerned peace and contentment, and that in such a
coercive, sullen package it was obvious that the Earth humans resented
the very idea.
