Review of chapter "Catching Up" from TinMan
Darn, tired enough she was out for a full 24...

Looks like that one set of formal wear came in handy after all.

It's been so long. I am so happy to see an update. When will the next one be? Please, pretty please, don't make us wait long.

Review of chapter "Catching Up" from AllenPitt
Felix and Zarek had so much potential to do well.... circumstances ended up with not-so-good results. Even Baltar wasn't all bad. He didn't intentionally help the Cylons--they used him, then he spent the rest of the series terrified that his secret would come out. I also felt bad for Sharon. The original one that is.
Hopefully Dawn will be a good influence on events. It'd be hard to make them worse. It's too bad she can't tell anyone about Earth/her early life etc. Hopefully she has a unique viewpoint that will help her solve problems other's can't.

Review of chapter "Catching Up" from Grovtech
I'm another who just found this and spent most of the day reading. i do like your take and your clever fashion of meshing the two Dawns together so its the same character, but in a BSG setting. Like everyone else I'm waiting to see what comes next and of course how her presence is going to change things.

Good stuff!

Review of chapter "Catching Up" from Innogen
Ooh, fly-by Gaeta mention! ::grin::

Seriously, excellent dialog in Dawn and Kara's sisterly gossip! I'm kind of hoping that by adding Dawn to the mix in acting as an aide for Baltar, that Gaeta won't be as easily influenced (more than he already is).

Yeah, I wasn't a happy camper with what they did to Felix and Dee in the series. Those two lost the most innocence before losing everything else, you know?

I'm so happy you are writing! I can't wait to find out what happens next! I wonder if Sharon's life in the brig will be shortened, if the events of New Caprica are still going to take place, or if Gaeta will ever get a promotion! (yes, yes..., I know he's not a main character... yet!)

Review of chapter "Catching Up" from Glumski
Yes! An update! Well, umm, this is pretty much as good as it can be! A great crossover with BSG (the best I've found so far) and I absolutely love how you included Dawn. I'm very curious how you're going to continue this; there's so much potential! Especially those not-evil (or at least not as evil) Cylons... Oh man, I probably should re-read this; it's been quite a while since the last time.
Anyway, I hope you're going to update soon!

Thanks, I hope so too! I'm not sure what surprised me more, that I had a chapter completely ready to go in my working draft, or how long it had been since I last updated this story...

Review of chapter "Catching Up" from MarcusSLazarus
Good to see more; look forward to what will happen when Dawn has to be interviewed by D'Anna...
Comments from author:
Thanks. There's still a few chapters to go before D'Anna shows up- first Dawn has to learn her way around Galactica, meet her new boss Gaius Baltar, and there's that debrief with Roslin and Adama to get through...

Review of chapter "Welcome To The Fleet" from MarcusSLazarus
VERY nice bit of work you have here, to say the least.

From the beginning, you created an excellent new take on the ‘Galactica’ universe with Dawn Thrace as an additional character, managing to make sufficient use of her past as Dawn Summers to show that she’s still the same character while adding in enough additional details to make her interesting, and the subsequent plot has certainly not disappointed.

With Whistler’s visit providing her with a plausible reason to be in this world, Dawn’s new life pre-Cylon-attack might be briefly handled, but you provide us with the essential details needed, to say nothing of a plausible look at how Dawn survives the attack long enough to reunite with Kara while acting alone without any survivalist training.

Your dream sequences and Leoben’s role in Dawn’s survival are also handled well, fitting in neatly with the ‘supernatural’ elements of the original series without directly contradicting either side’s traditional visions, and the reunion with Dawn and Kara is also handled well, Dawn offering her indirect support to Helo and Sharon’s relationship without doing it in such a manner as to make her sister too angry at her (Particularly nice touch when you account for Dawn not exposing the doc too soon ever after witnessing the Fours in action during her travels).

The return to the Fleet is also handled well, as Kara finds herself ‘forced’ to rely on Sharon to protect Dawn even if she doesn’t fully trust the future Athena herself, and it looks like Dawn’s going to develop some interesting friendships with the rest of the ‘Galactica’ crew; past relationships with Billy and Kara, not a fan of Zarek or Apollo, willing to trust and accept Sharon and Helo, evidently not comfortable with Roslin, and not had enough time so far to bond with Adama…

Hope you’re going to continue this eventually; there is FAR too much potential for this story to be abandoned!
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm actually hoping to pick this up again soon- the reason for the long hiatus was me having loaned out my BSG DVDs to a friend, leaving myself no good way to rewatch to be sure I'm not making a hash of canon. (One of my goals when I started was to make it as plausible as possible, and not mess overly much with canon, although clearly there will be a few noticeable changes.) Now that they've come home, I need to feel my way back into the story so hopefully the long break won't be too apparent. And wow, the break is even longer than I thought, now that I look at the stats. There are a few nearly done chapters that shouldn't need too much work... I need to get watching/writing!

Review of chapter "Welcome To The Fleet" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Please don't let yourself get stuck on the lack of a perfect next chapter. I have had this happen to me and sometimes you just have to put up a so so/ decent chapter so you can move along to the better stuff you have that comes after it. It sounds as if you know where you're going... so... get on it!

This is too good a story to let lay fallow. I have read too few BSG/Buffy stories worth the read. I love your portrayal of Dawn and can't wait to see what comes next.

I know it's been over a year, but I really hope you haven't given up on this story. It's so well written, and it really does deserve to be finished. Please, oh please, update soon!
