Review of chapter "Epilogue – Two Months Later" from lateVMlover
Review:
This was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed your vision for the future Scoobies. Forgive my ignorance, but can you tell me what hok’tar means? Thanks!
Comments from author:
Hok'tar is a Goua'uld word that combines the Goua'uld words for 'advanced' and 'human'. Nirrti is the one most associated with this, since she was doing it on Hanka (Cassandra Fraiser's homeworld) and managed to give Cassie the power to control magnetic fields (but at the 'party trick' level rather than the Magneto level) although it also nearly killed Cassie. Nirrti also did it on at least one other planet that we know of, pretending to 'cure' a plague and instead messing with peoples' DNA. She managed to get several types of mutations that came with superpowers and/or body horror. She was hoist by her own petard when she got one with enough telekinesis to be able to break a Goua'uld's neck. Oops.

Review of chapter "Xander and the Whole Megillah" from DieselDriver
Review:
So how good of a Betelgeuse does Xander do when he says "Showtime"?

OMG! That would be a crazy crossover.
Comments from author:
I wonder if anyone has ever written a Beetlejuice/Buffy crossover with Xander going as Beetlejuice for Halloween?

Review of chapter "Jennifer & the Debriefing, Part V: Summers" from DieselDriver
Review:
Regarding you a/n... The longer the better as far as I'm concerned. I love your writing style and am now re-reading this because it's likely better than anything I'll find on the site with a couple of possible, just barely but possible, exceptions. To paraphrase someone I'm sure, May you live long and write much.

BTW, I purchased "Tenjin" the modified version of the anathema story from your compatriot, and it was almost as good as the original fan fiction. I have to wonder if you could do the same. I would certainly buy any fiction book I knew found, if you were the author.

Thanks! And thanks!

Review of chapter "Jennifer & the Debriefing, Part II: Sunnydale" from DieselDriver
Review:
This is a beautiful display of the problem of people reaching a completely wrong conclusion from having almost all of the information but not quite and not being prepared to think outside the box they have been programed in to. Boxes are nice if they fit ALL the facts but not so much if you get new facts. Quantum mechanics still drives scientists coo coo sometimes. People still think of atoms as little teeny tiny solar system like things when an electron is a wave or a particle depending on how you look at it. Schroedinger's cat is alive, or is it? You have to look and see and Looking alters the outcome.
Comments from author:
Well, have they reached a wrong conclusion yet? Sunnydale really is the worst foothold situation on the planet. It's just not a Goua'uld situation.

And I was pleasantly surprised that the text my teenager's school is using for the *easy* sciences course actually portrays electrons and electron shells fairly accurately.

Review of chapter "Xander and the Medical Exam" from DieselDriver
Review:
Earplugs definitely help with the noise of an MRI but you better not be on the stout side or it gets downright claustrophobic in there. Heh, my hands would not fit any place except on my belly and the backs of my hands and my elbows just touched the inside of the tube. I managed by taking a dose of muscle relaxant (soma, aka flexorile) about a half hour beforehand. I was quite relaxed and it still bothered me. If there'd been an earthquake I'd have died there unable to get out.
Comments from author:
It helps being 'petite' or at least not big and tall.

Review of chapter "Sam and the Hok’tar" from DieselDriver
Review:
To answer Sam's last thought in the chapter, I think that they would be in for a very rude shock.
Comments from author:
I think a 'very rude shock' doesn't quite capture it. :D

Review of chapter "Epilogue – Two Months Later" from meteoricshipyards
Review:
A lot of fun and very enjoyable. Loved the misunderstandings early in the story and the leaps to (correct) conclusions later in the story. And plan H was hilarious and unexpected.

I do hope you write another sequel to this (I am reading the scenes).

If not, thank you for an enjoyable story (which I stayed up _way_ too late reading :-) and good luck with the rest of your creative endeavors.

Tom A.
Comments from author:
Thanks for reading and reviewing! (Recommendations are good too. :D )

I planted half a dozen possible sequel hooks (some more blatant than others) in the story and its 'sequel' but my muse is just not interested right now. I won't say I'll never write a sequel. I said that when I finished "The League of Extraodinary Women" (which also has BtVS and SG-1 crossovers in it) and I ended up writing two sequels. So far. My muse is not a kind or gentle muse.

Review of chapter "Jennifer & the Debriefing, Part V: Summers" from Zeviz
Review:
These are my favorite kinds of scenes in crossovers: the scenes where characters from different "world" try to understand each other's stories.
Comments from author:
Thanks. The pieces fit together. It's just that the jigsaw puzzle you end up with makes no sense. :-)

Review of chapter "Epilogue – Two Months Later" from sdavidm
Review:
Characterizations were excellent. Xander/Anise-Freya was hilarious. Writing was very good as well. It's quite long for a fic in which very little happens though. Feels like a great opening for a longer crossover, which you've hinted at in this last chapter. I hope you do it! Given where in the timeline of each verse you started, the plots are very open ended. That can be good and bad, but I think you could do it justice.
Comments from author:
Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Right now, my muse isn't interested in one of the many sequel hooks I planted. But you could try and motivate her by giving me a recommendation... :-)

Review of chapter "Sam and the Revelation" from JJDudeman
Review:
I've read this story a couple times, but not since I started reviewing, and this needs to be pointed out. The bigger, broader unique strength here was how you played up young Jennifer Hailey. She's a ripe character for the treatment ('Potential' uses her very very well in the best Buffy-Angel-Stargate overlapping I've ever seen), but you don't break the fic by raising her to prominence. But what a treat to watch the different reaction as an alternative to the classic science-as-religion denial the hardcore scientists always need to have in these fics. That's over a lot of the chapters.
THIS chapter is cool for the way you smoothly provide a way. for Harmony to remain cool without shattering the cornerstone of Whedonverse vampires that Spike already cracked. Because any decent explanation for Spike's souled/souless ability to ultimately be good/evil would still leave us with no room for Harmony, and she's fun. The uncertainty of the answer itself is a strong point, making a clever and plausible explanation workable while still admitting she really shakes the shades of gray up to an uncomfortable degree. Very very slick.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I try to be as ingenious as I can about patching up the holes in the walls of my favorite universes, but Harmony is really not a Whedonverse vampire. She made for some of the best comedy in both series after she became a vampire, but that sort of broke the rules. (Okay, Spike's attraction to Buffy really broke the rules too, but Spike broke a lot of rules.)

Harmony was generally a better person as a vampire than she was as a human. That makes for real comedy, but it's a plothole.

You might also be interested in the way I handled her in my 'The Big Bang Theory' crossover.

Review:
Oh yeah, That was a great story. Just freaking awesome.

One thing though. Never come down too hard on Newbies. Any group that doesn't have newbies, dies out.

Thanks! I appreciate the reviews, and I'd love a recommendation if you feel up to it.
