Review of chapter "The Other Side of Explanations" from MinervaAnnMcGonagall
I read this story a few years ago. I just stumbled back over, and to my surprise there were two chapters that I hadn't read. I loved this story then, and I love it now. I'm just hoping that someday you'll plan on continuing it!

Review of chapter "A Breakthrough" from HMaxMarius
Hi Kyra,

Glad to see from the review replies you plan to continue...

Now... As to the research in this chapter:

Medical records would be locked down tighter than a vampire at a watcher's convention... On the other hand, all of the information you reference /would/ be available via the Clerk of Court's office in virtually any U.S. county. With the birth certificate info one would be able to contact the C of C and research any related public record (taxes, properties, birth and death certificates, etc). If you should decide on a rewrite before continuing you might consider using that instead of the Hospital since anything in a C of C's office would be public record unless under some form of judicial seal.

Comments from author:
Yup, I definitely plan to eventually continue. :)

Thanks for the info, I didn't know that. I'll keep it in mind if I ever decide to do a rewrite.

Review of chapter "The Other Side of Explanations" from Silver
okay - I really love this story, especially dealing with 2 secondary characters. I like how the friendship of Cordy & Faith evolved; it didn't just happen. So Slayers may actually be descended from the Ancients? Did the Ancients create the Slayers as a weapon against the Wraith? Or was it an incomplete experiment and the Watchers Council took control? What if they (the Watchers) are descended from an original group that was supposed be supervising the "experiment"? Also love the fact that it is Cordy who is related to an SG-team member - and not Buffy, Willow, or Xander - who is not SG-1.

Now as much as I am enjoying this, I cannot give this a 10, since it has not been updated in almost 2 years!!! BTW, are you EVER going to update Cousin of Ipswich? That poor thing has been sitting there, un-updated, for a dragon's age! If you have lost all interest in these two storis, please tell me so that I may remove them from my tracking list.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I'm so glad you like it! :) Cordy and Faith are just so much fun! I have a couple different ideas for the Slayers, but haven't quite decided how I want to play that yet.

As for updates, *hangs head in shame* I do plan to eventually continue (and finish) all of the stories I have in progress. I've just gotten really busy with school and work and RL, mostly school though. And my muse has been a bitch and refuses to cooperate, which is why when I have written anything recently, it's been oneshots that I don't have to worry about continuing.

With this fic, I've completely forgotten what was going on in SGA when this fic is set, so I need to go back and rewatch the end of S1 and beginning of S2 before I can continue this, and I haven't had time to do so. And with Cousin of Ipswich, I had really awesome ideas for future chapters, but lost my notes, so I've been trying to figure out what I had planned.

As soon as I get enough of a break in my schoolwork to actually breathe, I'm hoping to be able to go through and reread all of my stories, and hopefully get at least a few of them updated. I'm so sorry you (and everyone else) have had to wait so long for updates.

Review of chapter "The Other Side of Explanations" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Well now...this is a lovely tale and it saddens me to see it hasn't been added to in so long. Cordelia and Faith are probably my two favourite 'secondaries' So I will begin with saying I hope inspiration strikes soon.

Now to review: (Please read chapter in front of all those neat little numerals)

1) a nice beginning, understated.A valid question as well.
2) A nice beginning for Cordy and Faith, easing into friendship. Also bonding over male stupidity is good.
3) Nice to see Faith using her brain, too few Fanfics show her to be anything but a brawler. Continuing to devellop the friendship is good too.
4)The problems of to get through to a relative you don't really know. Well written and the friendship continues. Also an excellent way to keep Faith out of trouble is to get her a real friend.
5) Very nice...I jsut wonder what the state of the Chase finances are in this AU?
6)Looking up long lost relatives is an excellent reason for a road trip. I do like the interaction of Faith and Cordelia
7) I can just imagine the gossip running around the base regaridng Sheppard and his two knocked up teen girl friends now...
8)I must admit I'm rather surprised O'Neil showed up in person. After all a sergeant would be way more logical to conduct such a questioning...and that they were taken into the mountain instead of an 'upstairs' interrogation room.
9) Faith deserves getting that slap...but I fear that John Darling will still eye her candidly...once she reaches eighteen. The advantage of the best labs is that you get blood tests done reall quickly though
10) Now really gentlemen? Why would taht be such a big surprise? But why put them in a room with so many artefacts? Or did they do in on purpose to see if Cordy had the gene?
11) Hello dear brother...but I am rather surprised at the ease with which classified information is released, even if it does gain them two strong gene bearers.
12) Nice exposition of what is to come and the trust between the two girls
13) Coffee and soldier boy toys...did Jack have any pittraps hidden in those contracts?

14)? C' know you wanna...

On the whole very enjoyable and I sincerely hope that your muse comes by soon.
Comments from author:
Oooo! I love long reviews! Okay, I'm gonna try and make sure I reply to everything....

First, Writer's Block sucks! The Muses haven't wanted to let me play with any of the Buffy or Angel characters for a while. It's sad. :-( I definitely plan to continue it though.

And now on to the chapter stuff...

1 and 2: Thanks, I'm glad you like how I did it.
3: Faith is one of my absolute favorite characters, so I love giving her depth and developing her character.
4: Pretty much any of my fics with Faith in them that start before she goes bad have her getting 'saved' so to speak. Mostly by the fact that she has at least one friend instead of being alone. As for the bureacracy...yay! for artistic license, lol!
5: I pretty much ignored that whole arc for this fic.
6: Yup! Writing Faith and Cordy is so much fun. :)
7: Yeahhhh.... *giggles*
8: Honestly haven't seen SG1 in years, so I don't really know/remember how things worked at the mountain. I much more familiar with SGA. And O'Neill's the superior officer that I'm at least slightly familiar with and with two teenage girls randomly showing up looking for one of his men who had been off-world for a year and flying helicopters in Antarctica for however long before then.... *shrugs* Like a lot in this fic, I'm claiming artistic license, lol.
9: LOL! Yeahhh...gotta love John. :-D
10: I honestly don't remember why I did that. I think I just stuck them in an office because they'd decided they weren't dangerous or something, I really don't remember.
11: They did make them sign confidentiality agreements. And having two more people with such strong ATA genes is definitely of the good. And...artistic license! ....Wow, I really do use that a lot, don't I? lol!
12: Thanks!
13: Not that I'm aware of, lol. Fairly straightforward unless it becomes convenient later to pretend like there were, lol.
14: LOL! I do want to, it's my Muses that are being a pain in the ass....

Thanks so much for the review!

Review of chapter "The Search Begins" from (Recent Donor)Hawklan
Normally I'm not a fan of Cordy stories, but somehow this one caught my eye and
the prologue made me curios enough to check out what happens next.

2. The Search Begins

ahh nice that Faith is helping her. I always liked the rouge slayer.

ADD: Yepp have to agree there..sadly the whole series had quite a few things that went more than wrong *g*
Comments from author:
I'm glad you like it even though you aren't normally a fan of Cordy. :-) Faith's one of my favorite characters, I think things could have gone so much differently for her if she'd actually had friends.

Review of chapter "The Other Side of Explanations" from TwoBlackDragons
Evil Author\Muse = one who doesn't finish stories they start.
And this is a terrific story, so please stop being one of the Evilest of Authors\Muses.
Comments from author:
LOL! Sorry.... I don't mean to be an Evil Author.... Now, my Muses on the other really wouldn't surprise me if they were being evil on purpose, lol!

I do plan to continue this, I just haven't really had much of a chance to recently because of school. Plus, I've gotten stuck in the Glee fandom a little. But this will be continued eventually.

Review of chapter "The Other Side of Explanations" from (Past Donor)Mari
I just had to say
that this line made my day:
"“I mean I could kick your ass,” Faith replied. “With both hands tied behind my back. Blindfolded. And without breaking a sweat.”"

*grins* I love Faith, she's so much fun to write!
