Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
So her secret life and his secret life are about to collide? Cool. I think it would be a really nice thing to have another chapter to this... It would be great to see a reunion and healing story... And meeting Dawn for the first time -- even with the false memories... that would be so cool. And add a few of the SG 1 folks and it could be really interesting.

I liked Hank Summers a lot, and I always found it odd that he basically became the character from the episode Nightmares, which was so not what he seemed in his other appearances...

Thanks for a new take on something that has always niggled at the back of my mind...
Comments from author:
Thank you for such a well thought out review. Sorry I took so long to reply to it. Maybe I'll be able to write that out someday. I hope so. :)

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Oooh, they're both about to get a wake up call when they find out that Buffy was telling the truth. I liked this a lot because it always bothered me that Hank Summers abandoned his family and this is an excellent way of explaining why.
Comments from author:
*g* Me too! I just HAD to give the guy an out and a Goa'uld taking him over was THE perfect excuse. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)

Oh and I just read your comment to my review about your name being in the Fan credits. That is so cool and you can color me Emerald Green with jealousy! *giggle* You rock! *vbg*

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Nicely redeemed (and I didn't think anything could make me give up my cherished contempt for Hank Summers)! Any chance of a follow-up or sequel? I'd love to be a fly on the wall during the conversations that seem sure to follow.
Comments from author:
*slapping at the plot bunnies with a broom* No.

No offense, but I really need some short stories to stay short. Too many of my fics are trying to turn into bloomin' epics! *looking at all the ones on the computer that I haven't even started posting yet because they're nowhere near finished and sighing with disgust*

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from link
Review:
It's one shot? It has promises to become quite an interesting story. I don't think the problem here is convincing Buffy there's alien. It's more about convincing Hank there's supernatural things out there.
Comments from author:
*chuckle* Oh, somehow I think he's a LOT more openminded than he used to be. Thanks for the review. :)

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from WinterRayne
Review:
It was great!! Loved your version of Hank. It would be great if you wanted to continue, but since it's marked complete thats just my wishful thinking!!
Comments from author:
Thank you. Wow, That makes it almost unanimous that everyone thinks I should continue, but SOME of my stories have to be short. *rueful chuckle*

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from purrfus
Review:
You might actually end up redeeming a lost cause - powerful stuff.

Great set up - more would be delightful.
Comments from author:
*bangs head on the keyboard* I can't! *glaring at my muse who is pushing plot bunnies in my direction and throwing them carrots* Don't make me get out the broom again.

Sorry, but I have other fics that need to be finished so that I can BEGIN posting them, not to mention the two I started posting that aren't finished yet. *hangs head in shame*

Thanks bunches for the review though and I'm sorry it took me so long to comment on it. :)

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from dugleikoo
Review:
Yea, that might have been me not writing english so good...
What I meant was Hank in the SG setting, 'cos...well, it just makes sense. In that strange illogical way.
Comments from author:
*g* Okay.

Yeah, I thought it was a perfect excuse for Hank, so I went for it. Thanks again for reviewing and I'm sorry it took me so long to respond to this one. :)

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from Greywizard
Review:
Hey, nice to see something like this come along, Duchess. ;-)

I, too, found the abrupt reversal of Hank's attitude towards his children more than a bit out of character given the way he had been portrayed in the first two seasons, and the fact that Joss clearly didn't believe in consistency of canon makes it all the more clear that it was done for hackneyed plot purposes only.

And you absolutely MUST continue this! ;-)

Good job.
Comments from author:
LOL I totally agree with that! Stupid... *shutting up now*

Oh no... *holding my head in my hands* Why is everybody saying I have to continue this? I'm trying to jumpstart the muse, in case I can't find my notebooks, so I can finish my (actually planned) long fics. Not trying to start yet another long running fic. *banging head on keyboard now*

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from dugleikoo
Review:
Pretty please say it's not the end...Hank gets to little attention, and I kind of like the idea of him working for the SGC
Comments from author:
You're right, Hank does get too little attention, which is why I wrote this little ficlet. Thank you for reviewing and for the rating too. *vbg*

Unfortunately, I have no plans to continue this story. I'm so sorry to disappoint you on that and I also have to tell you I didn't really imply that Hank works for the SGC. Don't really know where you got that from. *scratching my head now*

Thanks again for the review. :)

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from (Moderator)Ava
Review:
Nice. Very nice actually. I like it when people think outside the box and this is a nice departure from Hank is the Antichrist which is how most writers portray him. Plus it fits in nicely with canon because it has been stated that Hank was a good father, a terrible husband but a good father. Well done!
Comments from author:
Thank you Ava, I really appreciate that! *vbg*

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from Wolflady
Review:
From what I saw of him on the show, there wasn't any indication of him being a deadbeat Dad. Disappearing to Spain with his girlfriend didn't ring true for various reasons. So, I like the idea of another explaination. However...DON'T YOU DARE END IT THERE! So, there!
Comments from author:
LOL Oh my. Um, I'm sorry, but I really have to. *runs and hides now*

Review of chapter "Nervous Wreck" from WhiteWolf
Review:
Question: Why the h*** would you like Hank Summers? He wasn't in enough episodes to be noticed.

But back to the story. I like it. It always bothered me that Hank just had abandoned Buffy (and Dawn), for Joyce called him a bad husband, but a good (great?) father. They never gave me a good explanation why he left. I think simply midlife crisis is too vague.
Comments from author:
Okay, to answer your question, I guess I should have stated that I always liked the actor that played Hank. Yes, I'm a Little House on the Prairie girl at heart and absolutely adored "Almonzo" the same as Laura. LOL

But you're right, Joyce did say he was a good father too and like so many other characters on the show, Hank's good name was assassinated. So here's me, trying to fix it, in some small way.

I'm implying he was taken as a host by a minion of Ba'al (probably one of those that made it possible for the clones to flourish here) and started ignoring Hank's life starting a while back. Makes sense, right? ;)
