Review of chapter "Interlude: Good, Bad, and Ugly Part 3" from RedCalypso
Review:
LOL, the Trust seems to make a habit of acting on incomplete information and underestimating their opponents out of sheer arrogance, don't they? I actually pity them going into Sunnydale unprepared for the night life.
Comments from author:
Yeah, the Trust are kinda ninnies. Honestly, even in canon, whoever was behind the Initiative was a freaking moron of the highest order.

Review of chapter "Interlude: Good, Bad, and Ugly, Part 2" from twlight
Review:
This is wonderful so far. I do have to wonder what other changes are going to happen because of things like everyone getting better training, Joyce knowing about Buffy's job sooner, and Dru being dusted. I do have to wonder how long Kendra can stay in Sunnydale without getting caught by Jon. I am looking forward to more of this wonderful story.

Review of chapter "Interlude: Good, Bad, and Ugly, Part 2" from DebraN
Review:
I'm glad to see Jim making time for Xander. I'm also looking forward to seeing what costumes the gang ends up picking. (Ethan is always such a fun villain.) But can I just say I'd really like to see Kendra and Sam get a clue. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Review of chapter "Interlude: Good, Bad, and Ugly, Part 2" from (Current Donor)Truthmaker
Review:
I'm starting to feel sorry for Kendra. Sam's stubborn lack of vision is going to get both of them killed, or worse, before this is over. To dismiss out of hand that there might actually be a real master running the court just because he doesn't think there could be is the worst kind of arrogance.

On the flip side, Spike once again shows his smarts with the suckhouses. If he's trying to setup a stable blood supply for his minions he's going about it the right way. I've always wondered why more vampires didn't go this route. I know back when I was in college there were competing "clinics" that specialized is turning blood products into cash, and they were always busy. A master vamp setting up such a facility in a college town like Sunnydale could really rake in the supply. All he would have to do is run a few tests to figure out which parts of the blood were needed for sustenance and then make sure that was extracted with the rest of the plasma.

And finally, Ethan. Hell, this is going to be fun.

Review of chapter "Interlude: Good, Bad, and Ugly, Part 2" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Spike's enterprising, intelligent, and non-traditional approach to running a sustainable, effective vampire court in Sunnydale is fascinating to read about (and very believable, considering what we saw of Spike's leadership qualities in season 2, when not being distracted by Dru's illness or Angel/Angelus' goading. Well done! :)
Comments from author:
Spike, at least as he was initially introduced, was the true Big Bad of the series. His intelligence, adaptability, and fighting skills put him WELL above everyone short of the Mayor, who ran a 100-year-long scheme to gain immortality and came to within a whisker of succeeding. If they hadn't de-fanged him (metaphorically and more or less literally) that would have continued throughout the show's run. I wanted to showcase that, hence setting Spike up the way I have.

Spike and Mummy Girl in cahoots? Oh, my -- that does have some interesting and terrifying possibilities! :)

Review of chapter "Inca Mummy Girl, Part 2" from draconis
Review:
.
Interesting changes from Buffy canon, particularly Spike and 'Dominga'. Looking forward to where you take them. It looks like Kendra could go either way; either die as a Council-programmed drone or live and join the Slayer-Sentinel team. Having Zabuto on-scene certainly has the potential to change things for all concerned.

It's too bad the Machida-worshipping fraternity wasn't "DKZ" instead of "DZK".

"DKZ" would have been also an acronym that could be pronounced in a way that much better represents the nature of the frat members.
Comments from author:
*nods* Yeah, we're getting far enough out from the 'point of divergence' that this is when things start changing noticeably, even if the changes aren't immediately linked to the changes in the Scoobies (like the changes thus far with the mummy girl). Things get stranger from here on out.

Sadly, I don't think Kendra's fate will change. She's been 'programmed' all her life, and even if she realizes the Watcher way is for shit, the odds of her shaking the conditioning before she gets dead are not good.

And your comment about the frat boys made me laugh.

Review of chapter "Inca Mummy Girl, Part 2" from Letomo
Review:
Nicely done. Having the Mummy still get an identity that way, while not being identical, since things are different; clever use of AU. Enjoying this story!

Review of chapter "Inca Mummy Girl, Part 2" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I can see how the 'snakes in a brain' part of ST:II would've hit far too close to home, after Jon/Jack's experiences with the Goa'uld, but apart from that, I can't argue with "Wrath of Khan" being the preferable Original Series movie to start with (even if there's a good chance Ampata had actually seen it already, possibly dubbed into Arabic or something). :)

Review of chapter "The Return of the Scoobies" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Review:
"It probably helps that this is less SG-1 and more just one character from that show. Yeah, SG-1 was involved very early on, and will pop up from time to time, but it's mostly the Scoobies and Jon dealing with Sentinel stuff, which probably helps with the burnout."

That and it's Jon - Jack Junior - which also helps. I always liked Jon, and I was sad that we didn't get to see any more of him than we did in show canon on SG-1.

"While I won't be derailing the X/C ship, it *will* take longer to take hold than it did in canon - if only for the reason that Xander is going to be very involved in Jon for a while and not looking to hook up with anyone. While being a Sentinel or Guide doesn't nix an outside relationship, they DO put each other first, and Jon is very new to his senses. Jim was dealing with zoneouts and spikes even at the end of the Sentinel show's run, so ... yeah. Gonna be a while."

No worries. Slow and taking more time to develop isn't bad in a relationship. And taking the time to develop it over a period, especially when there's canon altering events and characters going on, is the mark of a good writer, IMO. (and hey - if the relationship developing slower and more fully over time helps to derail the fluke, too, then all to the good. *g*)

Again, good job. And on that note, I'm back to reading from chapter 17 forward. Cheers. ;)
