Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Okay, I didn't think it was possible, but you've made me feel sympathetic towards Double-Oh-Giles again, knowing that Sunnydale was his first 007 assignment and that most of the 'collateral damage' done to local families and to Willow's psyche in particular was just a result of choosing the less bad of only bad options.

Now I can REALLY enjoy the meeting/reunion between 'Liz' and Giles, I think. :)

Review:
Chiun did use a sword once, in the third book 'Chinese Puzzle', but it was a massive two-handed weapon that had been stored by the Chinese government for centuries. There is no way he would have taught Liz Summers to use a katana. It's an alien weapon to Kwai-Chang Caine, too, and Mr. Miyagi was from Okinawa; the Okinawans were forbidden katanas and that's why they turned to improvised weapons like rice flails.

Review:
just snickering at the thought of Chiun saying 'when you can snatch the paddle from my hand' to a slayer and before he finished the sentence she had done just that.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
"I wonder if Chiun visited LA before Liz moved to Sunnydale.

"You learn quickly for a useless female. Now do handstands with only your index fingers as I watch an entire season of 'Days of Our Lives'."

Comments from author:

:D :D Remo Williams! Heh. If you look through the earlier comments, you'll find that I already did this kind of ref with both 'The Karate Kid' and 'Kung Fu'. Because my mind wanders off in odd tangents"

*****

I don't recall Chuin ever using or teaching swords. OTOH its been a "few" years since I read them and may have missed or forgotten something.

In my case, the possible instructor that popped into my head was the elderly building manager (played by Burgess Meredith) in the 1978 movie "Foul Play".
Its a plot point that he earned a black belt on Okinawa in 1945, and has a fight scene.

Review:
No high heels went out of style during the writing of this chapter. Heeyaah! Pay back thy name is Lizzie. I can't put anything else down, I loved this chapter a bunch.
Comments from author:
Thanks! You'll have to wait 14 days for the next chapter, though.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from ScorpioP
Review:
I very much loved your "007" version of Sunnydale -- the more things change, the more they stay the same, no?
Comments from author:
Thanks. It sure is odd how these alternate universes have so much in common, almost like there's some sort of Great Editor In The Sky keeping things lined up...

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Hecatonchires
Review:
Great to see it from G-007's perspective. Did you sort of squish a few seasons of Buffy into 3 months?
Comments from author:
Yes, I basically crushed in everything from episode 1 through the very end of season 3. Or rather, I cherry-picked some highlights from the first three seasons.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Sunhawk
Review:
Hrmmmm, mastery of twin katanas... could it be that Buffy met a certain Bride as a kid?
Comments from author:
That's one option. Maybe a really old half-american half-Chinese man walked barefoot into her town and said to Liz, "When you can snatch the peddle from my hand..." :D


"Grasshopper?!?! I don't want to be called 'grasshopper'!"
"Perhaps... locust?"
"No! No bug nicknames, okay?!"

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
VERY nice 'real-world-esque' re-interpretation of the Buffyverse; I tried something similar for my story 'Angel's Eleven', but you added some very interesting layers of international intrigue to the reason people were 'congregating' there.
Comments from author:
Thanks! When I started doing the world-building, the Ethan Rayne thing was the first thing that my muse wanted to introduce, only it couldn't be magic. So, if Giles is 007, then suddenly we switch from a Buffy-esque setting to something more like 'Goldeneye'. And clearly, Rupert should not have stepped in to try and save Willow and Jesse, just as he should not have saved Sheila Rosenberg's life. He should have been an utterly ruthless bastard.

Review:
OH dear... Poor Rupert....and Oh Yay! The whole team...Liz, Willow and Xander...+++ SGC will have the whole team. Ahahahahahahh

Sorry, couldn't resist. :)

But that is smashing and I can hardly wait. Even if I have to deal with the inbetween fireworks. I know how to duck and cover, you see.

Anyhow, very much looking forward to the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Thanks. And maybe Rupert deserves it. He has done some quite unpleasant things, even though they were things that he was *required* to do.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
" The town had inadequately regulated shipping, suspiciously incompetent police, an unrealistically optimistic newspaper and city council, a corrupt if jovially friendly mayor, a university and a private college and two ‘light industry’ research areas all with some suspicious activities, a nearby military base with suspect security, too much income for the population, rival drug gangs, and the worst rate of felony murder he had ever seen, all kept quite sub rosa. And Rayne could have been involved in anything, from smuggling via the ships to accessing mil spec hardware from the Army base, to stealing some new high-tech device out of one of the light industrial companies.

It had eventually turned out that the answer was D: all of the above, with some mild cooperation from the mayor and the mayor’s pet drug gang.

Elizabeth Summers was astonishingly athletic, and possibly more lethal at martial arts than half the Double Oh series – he had no idea who had been teaching Elizabeth forms with katanas, but he most certainly did not want to meet that individual in a dark alley."


****

The joys of life in SunnyHell!!!!!
Fun bit of making this "mundane" town and most of the various messes match the canon supernatural armpit.

Who gave Liz all that (presumably _multiple_ years worth of) armed and unarmed _combat_ (as compared to sport) training?
It couldn't have been Honey West, as they presumably met _after_ Liz moved to town, NTM I doubt that she used swords.
Comments from author:
Who taught Liz? There was this really old Chinese guy who started her out by teaching her how to wax his car and how to paint his fence... :D
