Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from burmafrdnow
Review:
That bit with Andrew was really good. I like stories that actually have him do more than being a cook, etc.

You know, when you think about it, his video game experience might be useful.

One thing I have noticed over the years of reading Steven Webers Harrington series is a strange kind of inconsistency. In one book they will mention they have no idea what a motion picture is; then in another there will be mentions of a specific movie.

They say lots of records are lost; then in one book Honor tells a young cadet to look up a specific battle in World War 2.

On old earth no one knows what Soldier's Field actually was. Things like that.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from burmafrdnow
Review:
SO GLAD FOR AN UPDATE!!!!!


now....


Going to be fun for the Manties and company trying to figure out a simulation for vampires and chaos demons and so on.

Now as regards Recon and other types of military procedures that is a good idea. BUT frankly I doubt it will do as much good as some there think it will.

the chaos that revolves around the supernatural does not work too well when you try and put it in a neat little box

The Initiative tried the same thing- that worked so well didn't it?


BUT KEEP UP WITH THE UPDATES!!!!

this is the only Honor Harrington fic that is being updated at all - the only other one frankly was just an excuse to do bed hopping.

There was one called Honor's Slayer but that one seems dead as well


RECON is almost always a good thing- BUT sometimes all you do is warn the enemy you know where he is. Not always 100% a good thing. Automatic reactions are good for most situations as well- but it is something to note that the Initiative tried to do all that and did not do all that well. Training is not a panacea for all situations. There are some that defy simulation. But I do agree that the Scoobies need some standardized training to deal with most things they will run into. My personal thought that as regards the Manties the point needs to be made that you cannot fall into the trap that the book has all the answers. That direction leads you to situations like Kendra's.
Comments from author:
I miss Honor's Slayer as well, the author at least left it off at a finish point, but it could have gone so many other places.

I'll do my best with updates.

The purpose of training is to get people to use behaviors so automatically that it is reflex, with Willow in the mix simulations might be a bit more realistic than the Manties expect.

Recon is always a good idea.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from mendal
Review:
Given that all their possessions are actual 20th century things they should have collectors willing to pay big bucks for stuff.
Comments from author:
Until someone checked them for age and found that they were considerably younger than 20th Century Earth.

Good thought though.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from HMaxMarius
Review:
I don't know if it's subconscious or not... but Andrew and the Star Wars references... well, I'm wondering how deeply he is going to start thinking on that...

After-all, he's in what to him is a sci-fi universe with spaceships and 'snub-fighters' (LACS). There are Queens and Princesses and Duchesses and evil empires...




And he's now a founding member of the local equivalent of the Jedi... ;)
Comments from author:
You know, I've never really looked at it that way, thanks for giving me something to think about.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from liadenfan
Review:
Welcome back. I've greatly enjoyed reading your work. I hope to equally enjoy any effort you might make to complete any of your unfinished stories. I'm tracking all of them (even "Nightmare Revisited," just in case).

Thank you for adding to "Scattered Wounds." As I am a Weber fan it was, if not my most favorite of your stories, at least tied with only one or two others for the top spot. I hated to see it lie incomplete for so long.
Comments from author:
Sorry, around the first of the year I got stuck in a job with 12 hour days, it wasn't everyday, but on days off I didn't really feel like doing much of anything. I've thankfully gotten a new job, and now that I have settled in hopefully I'll be able to increase my writing a bit.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from war
Review:
“She’s the Queen,” Michele replied deadpan.

That's a perfect response.

I can see Andrew enjoying the view after seeing all those movies.

Hope Giles and his slayers/bodyguards are taking the time to ask Honor questions about Grayson.

Great story looking forward to your next chapter.
Comments from author:
Thanks. You can take as a given that Giles is doing research.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from burmafrdnow
Review:
MORE!!!!

Ok that is out of the way.

I would like to suggest that you have had Faith a little too quiet so far; hope to have her start being more herself soon.


As regards training for Buffy and Faith- that is tricky. So much of what a Slayer does is instinctual and the training would have to be carefully sculpted NOT to interfere; when you are putting instincts up against training things can get messy.

Now as regards leadership there are courses that would be good; but then again they are leading Slayers and that bunch is going to be different then anything anyone in the Honorverse have ever run into.

So assuming that the training courses will work as advertized is not a good thing
Comments from author:
True, and there will be some glitches, on the other hand, we are talking about training backed up by something like three thousand years of military history...

I have plans for Faith, but remember she got her head handed to her while she was in charge, Faith always struck me as someone who uses brashness to hide insecurity, so getting her to accept what happened is not going to be an easy thing.
