Review of chapter "Twentieth Century Boy" from Matrya
I will admit, I had my doubts. I approached this story with not a little trepidation (and very much desperation). I pictured myself helplessly Twittering in horror and continuing to read. See, I do that. I'm a Draco/Hermione fan, it's in my blood to stick with the suck. That, and long-lost-family fics tend toward the poorer.
You've proven me disgustingly wrong and blown me straight from the water, though. Physics of the Spin has been brilliant. Your plotting, your pacing, your characterisation, your style, most of your grammar (Note: Muphry's Law is now in effect. Affect? Gorramit, Muphry!) and simply the entire package. I have seriously not been this impressed by a Stargate-verse crossover fic in a good long while and am chuffed to find that you are so magnificently, fantastically brilliant.
Now, I can see this happening. I needed to be talked into it a bit, but you managed that beautifully (and the banner with Rodney and Rory gave me a visual push) and with aplomb. Rory's journey is grasping, intelligent and beatific and you seem to manage to frame the story with such a delicate piping of scientific theory. That you don't insist to go into fine detail is on-point - this is Rory's journey, it feels like, and having the tease of the theory there feels more natural than a schematic, so-to-speak, of fictional theoretical physics. (Or even real theoretical physics - I am unaware your educated background on the matter.)
The most engaging bits are while we are in Rory's head. While your Rory is different from the one we see in canon, you account for that and I can very much see that girl we knew getting to this girl were knowing in a fairly basic step-frame process. I am giddy to see where you take this character on her journey. One qualm I could say, a minor criticism, is that Rory's speech seems somewhat stiff, even accounting, but it is minor and may just be my reading.
Your other characters are...perfect. Your Vala...well, I do hope we see her again, the same as Daniel. McKay and Sheppard are so well pitched. So many people try to soften McKay's edges or to play-up Sheppard's *ahem* obvious male attributes. You play them off of one another and everyone else with such a sanguine canon-honesty that I really cannot applaud you enough. Rory and Sheppard felt like an amazingly natural progression while the father/daughter relationship between Rory and McKay has enough awkwardness to feel honest but not so much as to flounder in the reality.

Review of chapter "Twentieth Century Boy" from RogueAngel
I've lost track of how many times I've come back and read this story. It's kinda so it hasn't been updated in so long. Rory just seems to be forever stuck hanging there, she really needs to find her feet. Plus it seems kinda evil to give abit of John/Rory, then give them a problem with them not being able the resolve it. But that may just be my inner fan girl. I really do hope you come back and update this.

Review of chapter "Twentieth Century Boy" from ananova
I'm really loving this story and can't wait to read more. Why do I have the feeling that Rory and John's "mistake" are going to result in more permanent consequences? Like a baby? I'm just picturing Rodney finding out that Rory is pregnant and going nuts before learning that John is the father.
And you're doing a great job with all of the relationships and the twists in their thoughts and feelings. Great job.
I hope you're still writing and getting the reviews. I know this hasn't been updated in a long time but I really can't wait to read more.

Review of chapter "Twentieth Century Boy" from EasterCat
It pains me that this story has been abandoned as it was really good with the right blend of most everything.
Still, I'd like to thank you for the work you did accomplish.

Review of chapter "Twentieth Century Boy" from bucksavage
I know you've likely heard this time and time again, but I really was getting into this story, only to find it abandoned. It's a shame, because it introduced me, in a slight way to the Gilmore Girls-verse, a show I never watched and now I find myself getting to know a few characters and I was getting into the tale.
