Review of chapter "Part 3 of 3" from purrfus
Review:
Fun. I giggled most of the way through. I think everything was clear enough that I could have read it, understood it and enjoyed it without reading the first story, but thanks for including the note suggesting reading the original story because having the background added depth.
Comments from author:
Oh good, I'm glad reading the first story isn't actually necessary to understanding this one. The general idea is to write a series of stories that are sort of loosely connected, but where it isnt' essential for them to be read in order. "Key in the Kingdom" is, in my mind, the only exception, because it does provide the basic backstory as to why the hell Merlin and Dawn are travelling together in the first place.

So happy to have made you giggle most of the way through! It was my main goal. =D

Review of chapter "Part 3 of 3" from Gideon
Review:
Cool story. I'm glad Merlin and Dawn managed to get out of there without getting shot at all :) And they even have an open invite to come back again anytime. I guess it helps that they helped with that Jaffa invasion.
I don't think that Dawn needed to go into so much detail about herself and what the Key is though. She could have just said that she had a different type of magical power than Merlin. Saying so much seems very trusting of people she has just met in a world that they know almost nothing about.
Comments from author:
Thanks! Yeah, helping the SGC out with a jaffa invation definitely helped them with the not-getting shot part. Also the fact that once said invasion was over, they were just too curious about Dawn and Merlin and not entirely sure they could hurt them in the first place (I mean, Dawn had just shut down the gate MANUALLY in the strictest sense of the word).

Yeah, I admit it was a bit silly of Dawn to go into that much detail and I had given a lot of thought as to how much I wanted her to say. And don't worry, the two of them will definitely not be going into that much detail about themselves to everyone they meet. In this case, part of it was to sort of make up for sneaking their way into the SGC's huge secret and part of it was Dawn making them understand that what she did wasn't just magic. And, yes, part of it was that she trusted them as silly as that sounds after the years she'd been keeping this secret.

Thanks for taking the time to review!

Review of chapter "Part 3 of 3" from burmafrdnow
Review:
seriously good story. And the part about choices- that really is something to make daniel think
Comments from author:
Actually, the story itself made me think a surprising amount considering I was basically writing a comedy with a few action-y bits. The bit with the jar and its significance in relation to Dawn's dimension? That actually didn't become a part of the story until half-way through writing part 2 or so. And Daniel was the perfect person for Dawn to share her insights with!

Glad you liked the story! Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Part 3 of 3" from AnFan
Review:
Fantastic! I really loved this chapter along with this visit! In fact I'm very sorry to see them leave.

Hopefully they won't end up on earth that is battling Aliens from Aliens VS Predators or something. Going from the frying pan into the fire after using much of his available magic wouldn't be fun at all. Would be interesting to see them jump right back into the SGC though ;) trying to escape something.

Can't wait to see what happens next. Do you have plans to have them show up on an earth that has just been taken over by Apophis? That would be an opportunity to pop that bubble around the magic. Though, it might be a tough choice for them since they don't know of the ascended, if they don't try to find out if that jar exists in that kind of dimension. Wow, that option could really get complex. Best thing to do if they popped the seal would be to call in the Ori so that the Ascended had to choose to be the good guys. Then explain to the good guys they shouldn't be like the PTB.

Thanks for the update. Really love the story.
Comments from author:
Lol, actually an apocalyptic version of Earth hadn't actually occured to me... I could do that. Will have to give some thought as to which fandom though... Don't think it'll be a Stargate version of apocalyptic Earth, but I do actually plan to have a short little ficlet or two where Dawn and Merlin return to the SGC (or atempt to, anyway).

Honestly, I'm trying to think of a way I could do an Adria vs. Merlin showdown. Now THAT would be fun!

Thanks so much for reviewing! Glad you enjoyed the story!

Review of chapter "Part 3 of 3" from Aenea
Review:
Yeah update update upy-datey update!

Good chapter, wish you had a bit more about what the Gate network and Dawn communed about though. So where's the next stop on the multi dimensional romp?
Comments from author:
Thanks, glad you liked it! Not entirely sure what the next stop will be... I've got a few ideas for various different fandoms, but not entirely sure which the next one will be. Next one probably won't be as long either. I think.

Review of chapter "Part 2 of 3" from LunasMeow
Review:
Okay, so I've just started looking for fics where Dawn is in Stargate, since her keyness would interact in some way with it, and this one is looking to be good. You should really update this asap. I'd also recommend one by Dreamsmith, called All Your Base Are Belong To Her.
Comments from author:
Hmm... there's also a story somewhere about the 'four jobs Dawn didn't get and the one she did'. Which is admitedly just purely funny more than plot-y, but worth the read for the ending. Not sure I've read the one you've mentioned (although if it's on this site I probably have). Glad you're liking this story! Next chapter will be up tomorrow at the latest.

Review of chapter "Part 2 of 3" from winchestersgirl
Review:
That. was. awesome!

Ok, so the first chapter had me intrigued.

Then I went back and read it twice more. Then I was curiously awaiting the next installment.

But you totally blew me away. You actually had me laughing out loud at parts. Awesome!

Please sir, I want some more.
Comments from author:
LOL!! Thanks so much! It makes me happy that the funny parts were actually as funny as I thought they were (although my personal favourite is still coming up in the last part... which should be up no later than tomorrow).
