Review of chapter "Chapter Nine." from DieselDriver
Review:
Somebody from the old life is eventually going to recognize or realize that this is the same Faith Lehane that went bad back in Sunnyhell and that aught to be interesting. Riley knows who rescued him, all it would take is his telling of his tale to Buffy.

Ah, well read on!

Review of chapter "Chapter Four." from DieselDriver
Review:
Military Humvees are diesel. Not even electronically controlled. At least not back then. New ones maybe, not even sure if they're still being produced. Unless the engine is shut off there's no reason for it not to run just fine without any electricity. Mechanical fuel pumps too. No reason to shut it off in a situation like this either. Diesels don't use hardly any fuel when idling. Not like a gasoline engine. 1/5 to a half a gallon per hour for gas. Less than 1/5 for even 6.5 liter diesels. Also, if you might need to make a quick getaway you don't want to have to start it. Jump in, jam it in drive and punch it.
Comments from author:
A-ha! You think any of that matters when hi-tech aliens are concerned!? At least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, for some reason I assumed that Hummers had petrol engines...whatever.

Cheers,

Review of chapter "Chapter Three." from DieselDriver
Review:
"collage boy" Would be a boy who arranges collages. College boy would be a boy with a college degree. Saw this one a couple of places. There's been a few errors like this here and there through out the story but this is the first one I noticed that repeated.
Comments from author:
Darn typos, once more a perfect example of why a beta is needed.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from WhippingDawn
Review:
So that was the first, eh? Damn it's good. I loved Buffy's and Xander's interaction at the end. Most importantly I love what Faith is becoming, and I seriously hope this series never ends.

The next one is short, I should go through it today, hehe...
Comments from author:
Yep, this was how it all started. If I'd planned it as a series the ending would have been slightly different.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirteen." from SilverWave
Review:
Thanks for another great story.

Cheers :-)
Comments from author:
The story that started the 'Faith in the Army' series. It was supposed to be a one off but people seemed to want sequels so what can you do?

Cheers,

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve." from Oxnate
Review:
I've been making my way through this series and it's very good. Though, you almost lost me on this chapter. Buffy's attitude towards Faith after so many years was simply wrong. In a world where Faith woke up and then disappeared, Buffy wouldn't be acting that way.

That she corrected herself before she did any damage was a saving grace.

9/10 overall but only 5/10 for this chapter.
Comments from author:
Hmmm, I look at it this way; the last Buffy saw of Faith was of a killer/rogue slayer a danger to everyone she knew.

Buffy glosses over the fact that Faith never tried to kill her and in fact it was Buffy who tried to kill Faith.

I needed a scene in which Buffy accepts that she has to 'forgive' Faith (she forgives other people that have done far worse) and let her get on with her life.

The other thing is that 'Fella...' was supposed to be a 'one-shot' it was only when the story became so unexpectedly popular that I started to think of it as part of a series.

If I'd written it as part of a series I'd have written that chapter somewhat differently.

Anyway, glad you liked the rest of the fic,
Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirteen." from maxthehobbit
Review:
Never saw or even heard of 'Over There' but seems like it would be something I'd like. I like the way you had Buffy as an additional character and didn't bash her, seen that happen in too many stories. You didn't bash Reilly either and he almost always gets swatted like a bug. You write Faith stories just as good or even better than Kennedy ... now I have a long reading list since you've written plenty of Faith stories. Excellent ending.
Comments from author:
I never bash a character unless its to make a point which is more about the script than the character. So people call him Captain Cardboard, well I'm sorry but there are people like that out there! And another thing, we've all made stupid mistakes or made stupid decisions so why complain if a character does something equilly stupid?

If I really hate a character they don't appear in my fic...you'll notice there's little about Angel in any of my fic...

'Over There' Lasted for one season, which was a pity, it was canned for being too realistic (or so I'm told) or maybe it touched a nerve (again I don't know I'm not American). Anyway, I was sad to see there'd be no season two. I've got it on DVD but I expect its out on the internet, its worth at least one viewing.

The ending? Yeah I had two endings in mind so I thought, why not write them both. Glad you liked.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirteen." from Ansku
Review:
Never heard of the series but the story was intriguing :)
Comments from author:
You never heard of 'Over There'!?

It was a pretty good show and didn't deserve to be canceled. If you get a chance check it out on DVD or on the internet.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirteen." from LordSchmodder
Review:
Hu.
Somehow I didn't find this when you wrote it, but I really like that.
I really liked that you hadn't Buffy raise up a stink about Faith in the end, and the closure between Xander and Faith was also very nice.

Thank you for posting!
Comments from author:
And thank-you for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Thirteen." from (Current Donor)MaxGSandeman
Review:
It was good to have a glimpse into Faith's new life and I thank you for it. Your story shows that she is smart, can make friend and is loyal to them.

It's six or so years since she left Sunnydale, and the trauma of not knowing her past will be fading but it will always be there with her.

Buffy's half baked plan was to arrest Faith and then what. California is the only place that can put her on trial.
I think the death certificates for Alan Finch and the volcanologist would show they died of natural causes; heart attack, etc. The mayor was protecting Faith, so he would make sure her name wasn't muddied and with all police records destroyed, no evidence.
I liked Capt Baron's attitude toward Buffy; nothing she can do or say would change his opinion of her.

You hinted at writing a sequel where she joins the SGC but we might see another type of cross-over.
An atypical SGC story would be interesting. No joining of SG1, no sparing with Teal'c, a more realistic granting of security clearance ( signing a non-disclosure agreement is nonsense and especially taking someone of unknown status into a secure facility wouldn't happen ). Faith is a professional solder, so she would always act as one.
Anyway, just a few thoughts.
Comments from author:
Cheers.

Sequel is almost certain to be NCIS, L&O SVU and like you say an a typical SG1 story; I'm sorta thinking Faith is taking some leave somewhere sunny and bumps into Carter on the beach or something...I'll take it from there.

Like you say its so easy to fall into the same old story line when doing a BtVS/SG1 xover.

There's three good stories on NCIS I can use as a basis for three interconnected stories and the L&O SVU will be an original plot maybe with someone from Iraq turning up dead.

As you see I've been doing a bit of thinking and even a bit of writing but I find it best to give a character a bit of a rest (I've been writing a lot of Faith lately) so I'm doing a 'Buffy' story before I go back to Faith.

Dave.

Love Faith stories and this took a new slant. Really enjoyed it and think it definitely deserves a sequel.
