Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from mackiechandler
Review:
OK - I haven't read all of this yet. I read the first story in the series, and then started these, all the way to where Jack starts at the school and Dan is all geeky on the books.

These are WONDERFUL, just freaking wonderful - both in the writing (and you can write Xander and Jackisms wonderfully), in the peoples and in the ideas. God I love them. You have great ideas and you really surprised me. Thank you for writing. I am addicted.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from SirLee
Review:
The Whateleyverse is a superhero-style shared universe with a few twists. The main setting is the Whateley Academy, a school for teenage mutants. No, it's NOT Xavier's Academy; for one thing, it's way bigger, with something like 600 students, so it's run more like a "normal" boarding school (except for all the superpowered students, of course. And the special powers-relevant classes). And for another, it has *both* heroes and villains in the school board, since villains have kids too. One thing that you should know beforehand is that most of the authors came from the TG (transgender) fiction community, so you should expect quite a few of the characters having sex-changing experiences of some sort. You can find more info in the official site (http://www.crystalhall.org) -- note the link to the forums -- and on the fan-maintained wiki, which is quite comprehensive considering the relatively small size of the fandom (if I may say so myself, since I'm one of the twenty or so most active maintainers of the wiki), at http://crystalhall.wikia.com .

Review:
Sorry but whats the Whatleyverse that you mention occasionally? Got a link? Because I'd love to read whatever you may have written.
Comments from author:
It's not well-known, so it would be surprising if everyone had heard of it. I see that Sir Lee has already written a nice note about it. Let me add that as a shared universe, the writing varies. Some authors are good to start with. Some get better as they write more. Some develop improved technique. Some are utterly hilarious. Some are serious. Some have overpowered characters (it is a superhero universe so you need a couple) and some actually have *underpowered* characters. And it is immense, as in tons of material. Oh, and a lot of the protagonist characters have a transgender background. All of the protagonists I *created* (I inherited one) do not, but have other issues.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from PATM
Review:
Wonderful stuff. Buff- uh Liz-and Jack are a house afire for sure. Our Liz is a tradecraft and Legend nightmare, is she playing our sg team or is she really coming clean. Being captured is the best way to sneak into a secret installation, no? Reply to author: Not that kind of fire, Battle Buddy kind of blaze. I like their mindedness.
Comments from author:
Thanks. But I'll go ahead and spill: Liz and Jack are not going to be a couple in this series.

Review:
Faith did get a mention (although not an on-screen appearance) in the "Buffy in the DC Universe" storyline. I even remarked here that Batman was slipping, since he *had met* Canon!Faith and yet didn't find anything of interest regarding this counterpart.
Comments from author:
Well, either Batman is slipping, or his writer is. :D

Review:
I'm tempted to make a spreadsheet of who has met who in each world. Is Faith going to turn up antwhere other then the Buffyverse, they all did meet her at the end.
Comments from author:
I have some plans, but not everything I think of goes down on paper past rough notes. My muse is pretty unpleasant about any lapses on my part.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from Difdi
Review:
> But if you’re committing treason by letting aliens run loose on our planet

How exactly is it treason for aliens to be on Earth and/or in the United States? Legally speaking, it would be no different than having Japanese people in the United States. 100% legal with government permission.

> I’m totally sure you do not want what you do to get spread all over the internet like lolcats.

For someone so concerned with possible treason committed by others, she sure seems eager to commit treason herself.
Comments from author:
[1] Bringing creepy aliens here to take over the country is definitely treason in the technical sense. Just bringing them here for tourism would not be.

[2] Hey, that's extortion that Liz is doing there, not treason! :D

Review:
I'm noticing that Jack seems to know a lot about Buffy's Giles. I'm just sayin'. :)


Edited... Ah- HA!! Jack was on the op with Liz's Giles, not Buffy's.
Comments from author:
And there might be a reason! Remember, this Jack was on that op with this Giles where they fought terrorists and wiped out a Goua'uld and his spaceship.

Review:
Diane: "Time management is the art of blowing off people you don't want to talk to." ~ Dogbert

Or, if you're 007, the art of getting the people you don't want to talk to to blow YOU off?


What exactly is the "OPGU female agent" route? I'm guessing it involves vaginal and/or anal weapon carry (Eww!), but what else? Though I bet having had kids would...expand your carrying capacity somewhat.

Also, write faster!!
Comments from author:
Write faster? On what? I happen to be working on eight Whateley stories, three current TtH stories, and two more possible TtH stories (along with one maybe, maybe not TtH story that is nto coming together right now). Oh, and I have a Real Life.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from SirLee
Review:
Hmm. Diane has this thing for Chekov's Armories... and she went to the trouble of mentioning that Liz feels lonely. I wonder who will she fix Liz with? Not Jack, because 1) this is almost-canon SG1!Jack, who is already interested in Sam, and 2) She has already done that in the Slayer-world, and that would be repeating oneself. Daniel has just Ascended, so he's unavailable. Who, then? Teal'c? Walter? A certain baldheaded, widowed general (Hey, Canon!Buffy has a history of liking older men...)? 00Giles himself? Will she finally give Xander a shot?
Comments from author:
:D :D Definitely not George Hammond. And right now, she's more likely to shoot Giles than kiss him.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Love the latest cross-genre parallel. It makes sense Willow would be a fan of Hackers, and specifically a certain female lead, any time both exist in the same reality.

I have to admit curiosity as to how Buffy got sucked into the game, since a previous chapter hinted she was already a kick-ass fighter when she moves to Sunnydale.

EDIT:
The final recruitment may have been in college, but if she wasn't skirting the edges in high school, the idea of going into intelligence was likely planted back then-- especially if she spent time mentored by Double-O-Giles.
Comments from author:
It could have been someone in The Initiative. It could have been agents coming in to clean up Sunnydale after the big disasters (007 is not good for urban stability). It could have been her Psych 101 TA. It could have been... Well, I'm not telling yet. But she does have plenty of ways she could be exposed, particularly if anyone figures out that 007 was training her for months.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
"Not that she’d gone the ‘OGPU female agent’ route this time,"

*****

Isn't that reference a _bit_ dated, since the OGPU (formed in 1923) was absorbed into the NKVD in 1934?

I would suspect that since Liz was trained in the late 1990s-2000s period, she would think of the KGB or FSB/SVR, or less likely the NKVD. Of course then there is the GRU, the Soviet/Russian _military_ intelligence org, which is and was _far_ larger than KGB.

All of those outfits did and do train and deploy female agents.

Review:
re
" am surprised by this version of Giles (mostly the seducing anything female part). Is that what James Bond is usually like? And it looks like he got almost as much done in a few months in Sunnydale as his Buffyverse counterpart did in several years.

Comments from author:

Most of the Bond movies had Bond seducing almost every attractive woman he came across, unless he needed to kill her. Or in some cases, bed her and THEN kill her. In one Bond movie, Bond's reputation is so well known that it is actually used against him (and the British Secret Service)."

Comments from author:
Yes. When a Bond movie starts with Bond bedding a Bond girl, then has Bond bedding another women to get intel, and then bedding the Official Bond Girl of the movie, you sort of get the notion that he is constitutionally unable to keep it in his pants. Much like Ripper was in 'Band Candy'.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VI" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Okay, I'm having a whole lot less sympathy for Giles-as-super-cool-Secret-Agent-Man, after learning further details of what he got up to in Sunnydale and the emotional wreckage left in his wake. Naughty, naughty Rupert!
Comments from author:
There will be more. And you'll find out that Rupert's problem was that he was not ruthless *enough*.
