Review of chapter "Family Secrets Part 11" from Alkeni
Review:
I hate to seem like a nitpicker, but given that everyone seems to make this damn mistake, I'm going to correct you here. (The fic is, overall, quite good, though I quibble with the way the Scoobies give extraneous information during a crisis to the NCIS team, but that's neither here nor there)

The 'Family' of Darla, Angelus, Drusilla and Spike was never known as "The Scourge of Europe". /Angelus/ alone was known as the Scourge of Europe:

"Angel was one of the most famous vampires of all time in vampire history, legendary for both his savage villainy and his great heroism. Born Liam in 1727 in Galway, Ireland, he was sired by Darla in 1753 and changed his name to Angelus and was dubbed The Scourge of Europe, earning notoriety for being one of the most sadistic and brutal demons in history, and the most evil vampire ever recorded. Both The Master and the First Evil recognized how purely evil Angelus was. He was also known as The Demon with the Face of an Angel or The One with the Angelic Face because of his physical beauty."

(From: http://buffy.wikia.com/wiki/Angel)

That aforementioned 'Family' was known by a name, but that name was never 'The Scourge of Europe', rather it was known as 'The Whirlwind'

"The Whirlwind was a "family" of four vampires (Angelus, Darla, Drusilla, and Spike) that caused destruction, suffering, and death. The group originally consisted of Angelus and his sire Darla, two vampire lovers who had caused mayhem throughout Europe beginning in the mid 1700s. In 1860, Drusilla joined them after being sired by Angelus. In 1880, Spike joined the three after being sired by Drusilla and the foursome was complete. In 1900, the group disbanded after Angelus gained his soul."

Thank you for the review and I do understand why you brought this up. I never heard of The Whirlwind so I did some checking for myself. One of the aliases for The Whirlwind is The Scourge of Europe: http://buffy.wikia.com/wiki/The_Whirlwind. Without going through all the episodes once more I cannot say for sure why most, myself included, seem to have centered on the alias and not the original name. It could be it was mentioned in an early episode and they later changed it; after all in the episode with the parent's night Spike did say that Angel was his sire, however later they state Drusilla sired him. I do remember, however, that at one point Spike did brag about his accomplishments and one of them was being a member of the Scourge (I just can't remember which episode it was).

Well, Xander got some good advice from his father, and gave him some as well. And, as for sequels, I hope that you do them. This team and NCIS make good partners.

Thank you for all the great reviews you gave me. I'm really glad that you enjoyed the story. Right now I'm working on my Harry Potter/BTVS crossover Harry Potter and the Hidden Agenda; once I get that one finished I'll hopefully be adding to this with a sequel.

Review:
Sounds like Faith and Buffy might be right about Giles. Abby, bringing out the inner Ripper? Might be interesting to see. And I think we will be seeing a lot more cooperation between these two teams.

Sounds like this bash has been a great get together. And possibly some romance in the future for Abby and Giles? Only time will tell.

Vance, you messed up with planting that bug. What you heard is something that should have been kept quiet. Now, NOW, you are going to have to deal with Giles. Lets hope that you don't unleash THE RIPPER!

Well, it sounds like Xander and Gibbs had THE TALK based on what Spike told Gibbs. And that is something that will be dealt with, if need be, on a as need basis.

Review:
Well, Gibbs and the gang are getting a idea of what Slayers and the Scooby Gang are like, when it comes to research, and all that goes on with them. And it sounds to me that Gibbs, after all of this, is going to have a talk with Xander about things.

Well, Gibbs found out just how much Xander means to Spike. And for Spike to admit that, means a great deal. Now, its time to get ready for the fight. And its not going to be a pleasant one.

Review:
Well, Gibbs got some answers. He might not like them, but he got them. And that means a lot of adjusting of attitude as well. Now, its time to get some rest and then get ready to hunt a very nasty demon.

Abby and Tim took the news of vampires and demons fairly well. And I KNEW that if anyone was going to blow up, it would be Gibbs. Now, its time to get down to business and save Connor.

Well, what Xander was dreading, is coming to fruition. The secrets of the IWC is going to have to be told to NCIS. I have a feeling, there is going to be a LOT of explosions!
