Review of chapter "Future Propositions" from WereGargoyle
Review:
If you still need help on Inter-Armed Forces medals and awards, please let me know. / Sorry, I forgot I had already given you the info long ago.
Comments from author:
Many thanks for the offer, but I ultimately decided on the Silver Star in the sequel. It appeared to be the most appropriate level, given Cordelia's actions (I read a a few real-life citations).

Hope you enjoyed the story.

Review of chapter "Putting the Smack Down Hard (Part Two)" from (Past Donor)James
Review:
Couldn't think of a better way for Kinsey to get his, unless he had been publicly humiliated first then sucked dry.

Review of chapter "Back to the Beginning" from (Past Donor)James
Review:
"Glad you enjoyed it. Hope you like the rest of the series (the sequel is much longer, I'm afraid)."

Never ever appologise for writing long fics! I love epic length stories. 100,000+ word stories are my preference. That being said, I look forward to inhaling your series.

Review of chapter "Vampires and Demons 101" from breve
Review:
I always liked the Buffy version of Cordelia.
Never really warmed to her on Angel the same way.
I love her in this story so far.
I'm nervous for the Scoobies reaction to her, but I'm sure she'll hold her own.
It's still weird to read the Scoobies swearing since they never did on the show, but it feels more realistic I love it.
Comments from author:
The Scoobies and Cordelia will, in general, get along reasonably well. They've all had a chance to grow up and mature. As for Cordelia swearing, her time in the Army may have contributed to that...

Thankis for the review - glad you're enjoying it.

Review of chapter "Future Propositions" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Very good start for this series, so far as I've read it. Brave Airborne Sergeant Cordy, now that's something to think about, but I'd say it suits her, I saw her growing into it as soon as I read the story, and I'm not talking about the Vengeance Demon's spell backfiring on her.

As to your question at the end of this fic, I was a member of the 82nd myself, A co, 3/504 PIR (Blue Devils), and I can tell you that an Army soldier serving with the USAF on a USAF led mission would most likely get an Air Force medal, but it's hard to tell sometimes one branch's variant of the same medal from another just looking at the ribbons on the chest, the differences are very subtle.

Nicely done!
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review - glad you're enjoying it so far. Cordy is a very much underused character in fanfic and we don;t see enough of the personal courage and ability for self-sacrifice we saw in Angel.

As for the medal, I eventually went with the Silver Star, which as you say is the same across branches.

Review of chapter "Future Propositions" from Rune
Review:
Great! This is the true start to the story. And its a grand epic you're telling. A full Ten here because at the end of it you could have stopped there. Stopping points are really more of big pauses, I know a professional writer who told the story of a hero, the heros children, then grandchildren and so on. He stretched it out past 12 books! But the end of this marked the end of the "first book in the series". Well done and thanks.
Comments from author:
I had initially intended to stop here, but the muse had more to say.

Thanks for the review - glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Encounters" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Ok, gonna leave it there for tonight.

Couple of observations; I'm not keen on your 'Joyce' just didn't do it for me and I get the distinct feeling you don't like Anya.

Now I can live with Joyce because this is a great story and I can over look the way you've portrayed her and Anya, well I don't really care. I was never that impressed with her.

Other than that I'm enjoying this and hopefully I'll get it finished tomorrow.

Great stuff,
DaveT.
Comments from author:
Actually, I don't have too many problems with Anya. This is just Cordy's take on her, as you'll see further on. My Joyce is maybe a little OOC for some tastes, however.

Glad you're enjoying it so far - thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Future Propositions" from tuikie
Review:
To be quite honest, this fic is one of the reasons for signing up at TtH.
To find a fic with this quality finished (in a way) is quite rare; to find sequels that are in the making is rarer still. Sadly too many beautiful fics remain unfinished (and abandoned).
So I happily give this peace of writing a 9 (because nothing is ever perfect).

(Oh, in chapter 9, when you say: "The supply teacher who was actually a giant praying mantis and tried to mate with him", you probably mean "The SUBSTITUTE teacher...". Don't feel bad; I knew something was wrong, it still took me over half an hour to find the correct word.)
Comments from author:
Thanks for the compliments - I feel my head growing! Hope you enjoy the sequel (though fair warning, it's much bigger than this one...)

I probably should have used "substitute" - "supply" is the term used on this side of the pond.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Putting the Smack Down Hard (Part Two)" from Zyanadryn
Review:
good chapter, but Harmoney should of 'played' with Kingsly just a bit ! :D
Comments from author:
Harmony wasn't really that sort of vampire, not with a simple victim of opportunity. Perhaps she might drain Kinsley, even have sex with him if he'd been vaguely attractive, but otherwise just a quick kill and move on.

Thanks for the review.
