Review of chapter "Tease" from Rich
I'd agree with your assessment of all the characters, and add one more - Buffy. "Everybody" knows Buffy butchers words, and doesn't have a great vocabulary. Yet for seven years, her closest companions included Willow & Giles, both of whom were practically walking encyclopedias. How often did we hear Buffy complain that she didn't understand them ? Not that often, and when she did it was likely to be a joke ("Ok, now you're abusing sarcasm"). Plus, both Buffy and Cordelia scored high on their college admission test. Buffy's valleygirl act was just that; it was something she put on to create a particular image.

Interesting. I'll keep it in mind.

Review of chapter "Tease" from Rich
The odd part, at least to me, is that I can definitely see Xander and Cordy qualifying for the program. Neither one is all "bookish", but they're both very smart and resourceful when it's something they care about - and they're both good at thinking on their feet. they'd actually fit in pretty well at the SGC.

I'm assuming that someone at the mountain will eventually notice their extracurricular activities, and their interesting offduty friends ?
Comments from author:
It depends which way you view their circumstances at graduation. Xander had Soldier guy. BUT. and here's where it gets messy because a lot of authors get confused about canon on this issue... but Xander may have been in the same lessons as Willow. Willow who is a 'super genius a star student'. And he got only little tutoring from her. last I recall of the series saying so is Math, and at the time he's feeling peckish for a pig thanks to the hyena. aka season 1 there. So, Xander, Cordy and Willow are all in the same class for at least one, and I dont remember if it was for all of them.

I'll take the 'all of them' route for this fic. So what does that say? That Slacker Xander was cruising along at a grade that kept him on the upper class side of the borders between classes. That's if you take the 'slacker' view of him. On the other hand, what if that was him working his socks off, but he's just so good at not showing that he is? versus Willow, who clearly overachieves and could do with halving her study time without affecting her grades at all. So either way, he's good enough that he's in the top classes across the board, one just say's he's lazy yet smarter, the other a hard worker but not as smart...

Make of that what you will.

That Cordelia is who she is yet just as smart... yeah on that view, definitely make it into the military.

As for the SGC... That is a hard one. Teamwork? Cordy was a head chearleader, but cheerleaders have this... they're a bit... well its different from handling a marine, put it that way. Xander's got soldier guy, so that's a cheat for him. (and did no one catch that he had a LIEUTENANT's and not a non-comms? the Officers have to have COLLEGE education before being able to join up/transfer to Officer Candidate School. Even those who are in the Military before transferring in have to do the college stuff, albeit courses on their own time rather than attending a college. It bugs me especially with the 'jack is dumb' stuff in the show - Jack's a frickin full-bird COLONEL, then GENERAL. He has to have BOOK SMARTS to have gotten in as an Officer. And he was a pilot, right? Nope. PARATROOPER. although yes, he is a pilot. Qualified on stuff like not JUST the F-302... but the X-302. Sorry but if he's going to be the first one to fly the X-302, and also fly the X-301, then that means he has to have skills greater than even the pilots they brought in specifically for that. remember that episode with mini-jack? They didn't want Sam, who they knew was a pilot too, because she 'only flew second seat'. It's not ego. It's that they want the guy that was chosen to fly the goddamn plane the first time it ever bleemin' flew. even if that guy was, as far as they knew, shrunk down to 16 years old.

sorry, rant over.

So Jack is smart. I'll never downplay his smarts. Ever. As far as anyone who knows him is concerned, he's not dumb, he just puts that act on to make politicians and enemies underestimate him, with the occasional 'I'm dumb' joke that is NOT done very often. His disinterest in technobabble is that, disinterest, and from a lack of interest in the subject, not a lack of understanding.

anyway... sorry rant now over. promise.

yeah, Cordy and Xander may be able to show they have what the program wants their recruits to have...

and yes. Jack is sm... I've covered this. So He'll notice. And so will Sam. (I wonder, should I have her accept and seem already knowledgable about the existence of magic? if only to throw the other characters for a loop, rather than they go 'oh, she'll go crazy' and lo and behold, she does.)

Review of chapter "Tease" from ladiciusevol
I can hardly wait for the results of the Halloween spell.
Comments from author:
Eh, not sunnydale, and while there are good and bad stuff, nothing like you know, turning people into draculas and that. This one's small enough that two-dozen affected (versus say, a hundred or so kids) makes the military think some terrorists are having fun. (true, from a certain point of view.)

Review of chapter "Tease" from AlecMcDowell
OK, this is a great idea. I have a love for multi crossovers that can actually pull things off, and while this is still early in the overall story to tell, the potential is great. Even if Xander can't make an actual suit, if he could rig up arc reactors and repulsors that'd be a great help. There aren't many totally human super geniuses that I can think of off hand. Though if SG-2 follows along, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Hawkeye could all be decent choices for them...
Comments from author:
well, the plan was that knowing what happened to other sunnydalers trying to tell the truth when assigned the sg-c (which xan would discover a week before halloween) they decide not to say anything, and the plan of sg-1 learning by the events of the night fall through when SG-1 back out... and then promplty wondering 'what the f*** happened to Harris and Chase'. (and all the paranoia there)

Comments from author:
eh, these are the rough drafts that I never got to write up properly, and aside from the first scene of the next chapter, that's it.

glad you like, I do.
