Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from SpinelessPunster
Review:
Out-frickin-standing!!

I was rereading your main story (and whining to myself that I hadn't seen an update, heh), and I was fiercely wondering where Cadet Hailey was at the time, even going so far as to check the season for exactly when her episodes and graduation was..

Perfect timing for me. Love the line-'See you around'

Has Carter been talking? Sammy the gossip.

hee.

Kudos, and also for Buffy's Hammer- Never thought of that one. Ever.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review!

I didn't write the main story, nor Buffy's Hammer, becuzitswrong wrote those.

In canon, Carter first meets Hailey in "Prodigy". My story is set over a year before that. This is also set at least a month before Carter met Buffy in becuzitswrong's story.

Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from Amai
Review:
I absolutely love the series, and you've done a really good job making these seem like bits clipped from the series. Although I was appalled to think of a time when Connie believe Sheridan was a hotty.

I hope you post more as the story continues.
Comments from author:
Thanks!

I invented Sheridan for the two stories, and then becuzitswrong took him and made him the bad guy. It's not my fault, honest! :)

I hope to add more, if that darned muse would ever come back. Maybe the next tthdrabbles prompt will inspire me, who knows. :)

Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from (Past Donor)zephyrRS
Review:
Yay! Hailey...I just love her and hope that the assignment was really just a sneaky way to start a friendship.

And...John Sheridan....literally lol at your addition. From Air Force to Earth Corps?....or likely just to see who would catch it, eh?
Comments from author:
I think it will be cool if becuzitswrong does bring Hailey back in as a friend. Once Buffy is no longer an untouchable lowly smack, they'll have a year together at the Academy before Hailey graduates and gets assigned to the SGC.

Yah, I picked that name more as a throwaway thing to see who might notice. This particilar John Sheridan was born in 1978. :) And then becuzitswrong had to go and make him a bad guy... :)

Thanks for the review!

Have you looked at reviews for your own stories lately? :)

Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from anouk
Review:
I forgot to review this story ;) sort of forgetting that it's not by the same author as LE, LB itself. I'm 'ecstatic' every time I see a good story with Hailey (or mini Jack) in it (they're so under used :( ) and this one is definitely very good, even though the whole situation is completely alien to me (I have no military background and very very little knowledge about what goes on in the military schools).

This story is actually what got me thinking about using Hailey's body for my LE, LB fanart ("Letters") :)
Comments from author:
My own military experience was Army enlisted (mumble) years ago. I have no direct experience myself with officer-level training or the Air Force in general, but I'd seen movies and read books set at other academies and after I did some reading online, I made some educated guesses and wrote a hazing incident. :) I apparently got some things in my stories wrong, according to a reviewer on the other story, but that supposed Academy graduate declined to specify what.

I had pretty much Hobson's choice when it came down to which Stargate canon character(s) would have also been at the Academy in fall 1999. We hardly ever saw any of the lower-ranked officers depicted. My reading on Hailey says she wouldn't go out of her way to haze smacks unless she was pushed, and then she really wouldn't do more than the pro forma minimum to satisfy her peers.

After reading my story, Becuzitswrong said he was thinking about making Buffy and Jennifer friends once Buffy passes Recognition, at the end of her first year. Canon has Hailey graduating and getting drafted by the SGC at the end of what will be Buffy's second year.

Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from ShayneT
Review:
This was a nice companion story for the main series. We really could use a bit more of both. Any more of these coming down the line?
Comments from author:
Thanks for the nice review. I'll write more of these if I can ever catch that durned muse. She's so elusive. :)

Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from MountainWilliam
Review:
A good companion piece - really well written!

(Oh, and 'bracing someone' is calling them to attention.)

Oh, then you've been braced! lol

It's what the DI does when you're quivering at extreme attention, and he's at nose distance, screaming his lungs out at you. It's common to every military training regime, world-wide.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! I'd never heard that term before; my own military experience was a 4-year enlisted hitch in the U.S. Army (mumble) years ago. In doing research for this, I found officer candidates go through a LOT worse than I ever did.

Review of chapter "Don't Stand Out" from TheatricalBarrister
Review:
I really enjoyed this piece. This companion piece got me to start reading the main story, and I thank you for both writing such a wonderful story here, and for bringing LE, LB to my attention.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! Glad my story is getting more people reading LELB and the rest of becuzitswrong's fine stories. :)

Review:
Thanks so much for your great ficlet. I enjoyed reading it so much. I hope you write many more. 8)
Comments from author:
You're welcome. Is it weird to get fanfic for your fanfic? :) Alas, my muse doesn't inspire me as much as yours does, but I too hope she'll return to me again. :)
