Review of chapter "Teal'c's Story" from ecifrog
It's great that you tell this story from two sides. You manage well to cover a lot of stuff in a short piece without making it seem as a hasty retelling of dry facts.
My only regret is that there isn't any more. If you ever decide to write more in this series I'll be eagerly waiting to read more. Perhaps you could write out some of the sences in detail? Like Buffy and Teal's meeting.

And actually, I read you stories first. Then I looked up DeepBlueJoy's story :)
Comments from author:
Actually this story didn't really start as a Teal'c/Buffy pairing. I was just trying to introduce her to SG-1 before the Angelus story arc. That way, when she ran, she had someplace to run to. Then I heard the song 'Diary' and remembered the scene when Angel was stuck in her room all day. (Speaking of which, why didn't it seem odd that he stayed?) In addition, then there was the challenge on this site. All this added up to quickly scribbling out the first story. People who reviewed mentioned their hesitation because of their age difference and that led to this story.

But I do still have my rough draft of the original idea laying around. Maybe when the muse strikes, I'll type it up and edit it. There were a couple good snarky comments between her and Jack. Like I said, it wasn't done with the necessary intention of pairing her with Teal'c. So I'll have to see how or if I work that in. Thanks for the interest!

Review of chapter "Teal'c's Story" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Sweet. Like you said, the ending was a bit cheesy, but I too like happy endings, so I forgive you. What I really liked about the relationship was the fact that it was in character for who Teal'c is. Honorable, respectful, measured in his actions. And extremely passionate at the same time. good on ya!

I have issues with the Angel/Buffy thing too, but they didn't actually sleep together until she reached her 17th birthday which is at or above the age of consent in many if not most places. Also, since most slayers carry the weight of the world from the time they're activated, in a way I think that activation -- especially pre chosen -- was the day most slayers truly became adults.

Adulthood is when most of us take on all the responsibilities we will carry for the rest of our lives. What's more responsible than being accountable for the continued existence of the planet? Still, I am not an Angel fan for other reasons. He didn't stand by her and fight in the beginning when she needed him the most. If he'd gone with her to fight the master, she might not have died that first time at all... Just saying. Anyway. I enjoyed this. I really like Teal'c and I think his role on the show, and even more so in fan fic is much too limited.


Comments from author:
I know; I agree that Slayers mature faster than other kids...for the most part. I think there has to be a limit to what to expect or allow for them though. Even though they have the responsibility of the world, they still have the heart and mind of young girls, which is what most everyone failed to remember about Buffy. They just assumed that because she was the Slayer, she could handle heartache and betrayal much better than anyone else - her age or older even.

It's just that some people who seemed okay with the Buffy/Angel thing were disturbed by Buffy/Teal'c. I figured that if it was purely an age thing, the 200+ vampire was creepier than the 80+ Jaffa for pursuing a young girl. Plus there isn't the whole 'sleeping with the enemy' thing going on with Teal'c that there is with Angel. (shudder and cringe)

Review of chapter "Teal'c's Story" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
Well those were fun to read. Now I can say I have read 3 Teal'c Buffy stories. Though it was short and I was hoping for more. Maybe a little about their adventures, before and after the wedding. hmm story number 3 in the series?
Comments from author:
Pushing it aren't you? :) Seriously, I am considering it, but there are other stories that I'd like to work on. I'll probably save this series for when I need to write something quick to clear my mind on the other projects. If I continue to use songs though, I've have to branch out from Bread songs eventually. It could be an interesting challenge to come up with appropriate stories for them though.

Review of chapter "Teal'c's Story" from (Past Donor)exiled
I admit that I am completely starved for Teal'c Buffy stories! I even have one outlined myself but I have to many unfinished stories as it is....

I like the concept and the opposing view points. I would have liked for the stories to be longer--however--I might be wrong because I so badly want more stories of this pairing.

Good work!

---I was going to email you to answer your comment however I can't. I agree that its the warrior aspect that brings B/T together but also the protector instinct. I love Jack and Buffy, too. I just have been in the mood for T/B lately.

Thanks again sharing your story and hard work.
Comments from author:
I have some early writing about the summer she spent with them, but it isn't published and it doesn't specifically deal with their 'ship. It's more of an introduction to how the two fandoms came together.

When I saw the challenge though, I had to write out a quick response. I had also started a story where Angel was reading Buffy's diary to learn more about her and her feelings (just seemed like something he would do, the big stalker!). I heard the song playing and thought, wouldn't it serve him right to misunderstand the entries and get all puffed up thinking she was in love with him only to find out later that it was a different 'tall, dark and handsome' man?

I like them as a pair only because of their warrior aspects. When it comes to the romantic, Jack will always be first in my book. Even Daniel doesn't really match well to me. But I'm glad you liked it.
