Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Haha...read this once again and it's as powerful a beginning to the tale of Slayer Lite as it was when i first started reading it.

Still waiting for new chapters to be added to FLP2 and Key to the Stars, but I'm curious as to how much more you have to finish before you reach Someone Else's Mess...

Gonna read the rest once more; it's been that awesome so far.

Edit/Reply 9APR2014: Hey, what happened to the site? The whole thing was down for nearly twenty hours yesterday.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review - and thanks for reading again!

Currently working on a chapter of FLP2 and A Sunnydale Summer (the latter should be posted in the next few days). I probably won't be covering the period between Sunnydale Summer and Making the Quota (season 4 basically the same) and I'm not sure if I'll ever write about Cordy's basic training.

Glad you're still with me after all this time!

The story that started an epic! Still fun! You've come a long way since then!

Comments from author:
Always nice to see someone revisit my original story. I may have to adjust this a little once I've completed "A Sunnydale Summer", but nothing major.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from GenoBeast
Review:
"They were the eyes of someone who’d seen a lifetime’s worth of horrifying things and too much death and destruction and he’d seen the look in many a veteran."

I don't know about you but it is irritating and near story killer for me to read lines where a person just knows a bunch of details from another by just seeing it in their eyes...if Sergeant Granite Rock had some sort of special ability to read these details from Cordy then perhaps I could see that but usually this "eyes of someone..." line comes off as a cheap way for possible drama and character development. I don't deny certain emotions or potential thoughts could be conveyed by a look of the eyes though usually that is aided by speech that hinted at those details which I just don't see Cordy having hinted at this like say a war veteran.

Now overall the writing was decent and interesting idea...

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from Rune
Review:
You get a nine because it feels unfinished and that's shown by the fact is spawned a series. But I'd like to say its a very high nine. could be 9.8 or so. Tens are for perfection, or something very close to it. Thanks.
Comments from author:
This one was only intended as a one-shot, but it then ran out of control...

Thanks for the kind review.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Loved this.

I was hopelessly lost with the latest story so I decided to go back to the beginning so I could get the whole picture.

Several bits made me laugh out loud.

Of course this was nothing like when I 'joined up'. The recruiting Sergeant hardly had to work at all, I basically went in and said 'where do I sign!?'

Okay, time to start the next story.

DaveT.
Comments from author:
I hope you're not hopelessly lost by the time you finish working your way through the other stories (though there's a lot of them)...

The recruiting pitch was basically a watered down version of that used in Private Benjamin, just with the added twist that the Sergeant's CO is Judy Benjamin, of course.

Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the review.


PS. If you don't mind me asking, when were you in the Army? Just a matter of interest, as I teach British military history.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from tuikie
Review:
Nice story, not great, but a good starting point for the following stories in the 'A Different Future' series. (I'm guessing it's meant as an intro to the main story.)
Comments from author:
This is meant as the starting point for the series, though it could be read as a stand-alone.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from fandomoverload
Review:
Oh man. I just found this by accident and it was great. Cordy and the army. I wonder will she still get visions? Oh well I got a sequel to read.
Comments from author:
No reason for her still to get visions, as her life has taken a completely different turn - she never met Doyle in LA, after all. She will receive a different set of abilities - but I'll leave you to find that out in the sequels...;-)

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from maxthehobbit
Review:
Buffy, Willow, Angel and Spike got plenty of air time, but Dawn, Cordy and Anya didn't get much. Cordy being in the Army, this should be good and funny, but it could also turn her into a super soldier ... she's so bitchy I don't know who I pity more her enemies or those that might end up working for her. Good start to what I hope will be a good series.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed it. The Army will make Cordy grow up some - she'll still be snarky, but much more mature. Hope you enjoy the rest.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
And so from small seeds great trees grow. An excellent beginning to an excellent series.
Comments from author:
This was originally supposed to be a one-shot and my first attempt at fanfic, but it grew a little out of control. Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Making the Quota" from (Past Donor)Razberry
Review:
While waiting for you to update Fates Little Plaything, I decided to re-read the entire series. The tone and style of the story really changed from this to what you are currently writing!
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. Please let me know if you think it was a good change or a bad change, by the way! Making the Quota was actually originally written as a one-off piece of humour, but it just kept on growing...

The next chapter of FLP will be posted this week sometime.
