Review of chapter "Getting Back to the Heart of the Matter" from nljfs
Review:
I'm enjoying this story. I actually like Immortal Daniel stories... Glad you cleared up the change in eye color. I hope that you update it soon. Thanks for writing this -- I wonder what will happen when it sinks in exactly HOW Daniel acquires his quickenings & exactly WHAT the Game is. And, shouldn't he let Marcus or Cyrus know he's back? That should be an interesting conversation.

Oh, me too. There aren't nearly enough of them online, so I had to create one of my own.

>>> Glad you cleared up the change in eye color.

I actually know someone that this happened to. If I hadn't known it was possible, I would not have used it. In fact, in rereading my own stories, I realized I made a couple of eye color mistakes that I have to go back and fix.

>>> I hope that you update it soon.

Me too, since my muse has been incommunicado I haven't been able to put pen to paper. Hopefully I'll be back to writing soon.

>>> Thanks for writing this

It is my pleasure to write, and my gift to share.

>>> I wonder what will happen when it sinks in exactly HOW Daniel acquires his quickenings & exactly WHAT the Game is.

I haven't gotten that far yet.

>>> And, shouldn't he let Marcus or Cyrus know he's back?

Read my other series... it IS a tie in, even though, at this point, it doesn't look like it yet.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I'm not fond of ancient Daniel as immortal scenarios, but the storytelling and characterization has been good overall.
Comments from author:
I try to keep characters in canon for the most part, and change certain characteristics here and there to reflect that there are differences from the original.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Not sure if I understand "gave him the symbol." but the rest is working for me... the eye change is also interesting and mysterious.
Comments from author:
I was wondering when someone was going to call me on the eye color.

Okay, the eye change is based on a true story.

A friend of mine is from up north somewhere. She received a head injury in a car accident and left her home state with amnesia and hasn't been back there since.

Eventually, some of her memories have returned, but she doesn't want to go back to her old life.

Consequently, she was born with blue eyes... they have older pictures of her with blue eyes. But, after the accident, her eyes changed color to green.

As for the "gave him the symbol" thing... okay, note to self: reword that paragraph. Okay, I meant Gesture. If you remember, in the movie, Yasuf give them a "come with us" gesture... I just thought Jack could use it in sarcasm, and it would help spark something in Daniel's memory.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from purrfus
Review:
I've read a few Daniel as immortal but nothing quite like this. The story presents a really interesting scenario and I can't wait to see how you explain all the questions you've raised.
Comments from author:
Thanks, I know I need to continue this story soon... I'm not going to leave this one hanging either.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from VeltaIO
Review:
Great story - completely different to anything else I've seen. Definitely looking forward to the next installment.
Comments from author:
Thanks, glad you're enjoying the story.

And, yes, soon I'm adding the crossover with BTVS... and eventually, this story will converge with my Dark Angel series.

Although, at this point in the story, this story is about 2 or 3 years ahead of the DA crossover.

Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from KingHenrytheV
Review:
I like the story, but there are a few questions raised ....

1.) How is this story connected to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or isn't it?
2.) What other Highlander characters will be making appearances?
3.) When will the next chapter come out? :)
Comments from author:
Thank you, glad you like it...

Next chapter out soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Quite a few interesting twists there. And I like how you combined the fact that some immortals have a "unique" power or magical ability with how you wanted Daniel to be "that" Daniel. Thanks for adding so much to the story, so soon. I like how you keep certain elements a sense of mystery. Even after you tell the story of why the eye change (a power? a state of mind?), we still have more mysteries of both Daniels to unravel. Will he look up Adam... at least on the internet?
Comments from author:
Thanks, I'm glad you like it so far.

Glad you like the mystery, things will be revealed.

As for the eyes changing, that's really a simple explanation that will be revealed shortly in the story.

Rest assured, he will look up Methos. And this story will converge with the other, most likely closer to the end with maybe just a chapter. And, there are ties in this story to the other story. But...

This story's time frame is 2002 while the other story's time frame at the moment is 1999. So, the convergence would be a "Future Echo."

Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from unicornzvi
Review:
Maybe you should rest some before you write anymore, these last chapters were definatly at a lower quality then the earlier ones.

When Daniel shouts "I.Can't Die" what caused the stab wounds to appear? You make it look like they appeared by magic with no one actually causing them. Was this your intention?

Why was every one in a rush to get back to base? Why would Daniel be willing? How come no one noticed the blood on daniel's clothes? For that matter what happened when they came through the stargate and how did people react to Daniel? How did his post mission check up go? etc...
There are also more spelling mistakes (or at least I noticed them more) in these later chapters then in the earlier ones.

Comments from author:
I did mention in the story that he was stabbing himself with a knife. They witnessed him fall to the ground.

Well, if Daniel were remember more and more that is why he would be willing to go back with them.

He didn't have a post mission check up... yet.

As for any mispellings, I'll have to double check because my spell checker did not register any misspellings.

P.S.

I found the error in Chapter 13 and changed from "insight" to "incite." Thanks for the head's up.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from unicornzvi
Review:
Very nice, I liked the memory changes you had Daniel go through although his abilities are wrong if all he can remember is being Daniel Geiger rather then his life as an Immortal. Also he agreed much too quickly to let Jack down, and if he didn't trust them he'd have made sure none of them have any weapons and they walk in front of him (or some other similar precations).
