for Doggone

I don't know if I was the only one, but I thought Wally's pun was hilarious! I liked how that's how the title came about.

I have got to say when Superboy is not acting like his usual angry self, he's quite adorable. I just love how you wrote Superboy in this! I loved the overall message from Superboy, that he didn't want to see this puppy treated like a weapon like he had been treated. But also the thought of Superboy compromising the mission by stealing a puppy, naming the puppy 'Dog' and him and M'gann trying to be pet owners when they don't know much about earth animals is hilarious!

I loved how this story kept you guessing, once you thought you knew where it was going, it most definitely surprised you!

Kid Flash and Robin's banter throughout this story had me laughing the whole time :D

This was a very enjoyable read! Good work!

Nice story with a twist.

This was the only humour piece for the contest and I thought it was quite cute. Admittedly, it’s not one I would have read if I weren’t judging the contest since Superboy was the focus and I prefer stories that focus on Robin, or even Wally, but I’m really glad I got to read this and I did enjoy it. I thought Superboy was very well portrayed and very in character – it felt totally believable that he would rescue the puppy since he knew what it felt like to be a lab rat. Those actions gave us a very realistic and touching look into how Superboy feels about having being a lab rat without him having to go around roaring and shouting about it like he does on the show. I personally prefer your approach as it gives us a more nuanced look at Superboy.

My favourite parts to this story were the funny exchanges between Robin, Wally and Artemis at random moments. Like Robin saying Batman wouldn’t let even an ally have a weapon that he doesn’t have and Wally muttering “paranoid” under his breath to which Robin shot back with “prepared.” But my favourite exchange was:

“I have chemistry first period tomorrow. Mrs. Langer hates me," Kid Flash said.
"Only because you act like you know more than her," Robin said.
"I do know more than her," Kid Flash said.
"Yeah, but teachers don't like it when you point it out," Robin said.

I laughed so hard at that because of course Wally would point it out while Robin would definitely be of the ‘you don’t say it out loud you moron!’ position.

Also Connor naming the puppy ‘Dog’ was both fun and a nice way of keeping with his tradition of literally naming his pets. Plus, it was amusing to see him try and take care of the puppy (especially with the hindsight of knowing the puppy was human and deliberately being difficult).

Finally, the actual concept of one of the puppies actually being a shape shifting human assassin was so cool! Very original concept and really fun watching it play out once Connor realized what was going on. I’m impressed at the originality of your premise.

Cute story man! Loved the unexpected twist!

Interesting one shot. It had some sweet moments between Superboy an M'gann. I like that this was the only humour piece for the competition, it makes it that little bit different.

This was a cute little one shot. Normally I prefer stories that have Robin in the center role, but I wanted to read all the stories submitted to Black Friar's fanfiction competition, so I read this. And I am really happy I did. It was a lovely humourous little piece that really showed how Superboy felt about being a labrat without beating us over the head with angst. There was also some great little asides from Robin, Wally and Artemis that I particularly enjoyed.
