Review of chapter "Chapter One" from serenityselena
an unexpected situation for the gang ^_^
Comments from author:
Yeah, that's definitely unexpected - 'cause the Scoobies don't ever have to deal with the weird stuff and other beings trying to kill them, do them? ;-)

Glad you're enjoying the series. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from HMaxMarius
Hmmm... Starts off a lot like 'A Home for Slayers'... interested to see where you go with the premise...
Comments from author:
That story gave my muse a bit of a kick start, since I had also been considering something along those lines. ;-)

Hopefully, my muse's ideas will be sufficiently different to make this story stand on its own.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
I would have liked Whistler being banished with them rather than fried. He deserved better.
Comments from author:
I wanted to make a point about just how much the PTB and the Opposition wanted the Scoobies and their minions gone, and that seemed the way to do it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from deamon
I so vote for azeroth from world of Warcraft or fereldan/kirkwall from dragon age origins/II
Comments from author:
That is still somewhat undecided, but I'm not familiar enough with either game to write a good crossover with it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
With a crossover like that you could go anywhere, or anywhen :) Good to see that you made use of Whistler as an actual character and not just a plot device like he usually is. Now if the collapsed town of Sunnydale goes with them they could probably extract some useful junk from the ruins but that is likely to be a lot less useful than a fully intact town would be. A smaller group of people would be easier to protect and more mobile than a whole town too, especially with one of them being a powerful witch and most of the rest superpowered killing machines :)
If you like the ring of fire series you might like some similar books by SM Stirling too. Look them up.
Comments from author:
Yep, this story can go anywhere. My muse has narrowed it down to one of two possibilities, and I'm trying to decide which one to go with.

I've read some of Stirling's stuff, and he's a very good author, but a lot of it just isn't to my taste.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)CaptainBoulanger
Heh. I could just see the Slay Crew in 1632-universe England, somewhere not-London, with the coming of the Royal Regiments under Wentworth and Cork. Maybe meeting up with the group that goes to the Fens after "The Baltic War". Julie Mackay and a Slayer having a talk about guns would be.... interesting to say the least.

Or perhaps in Plymouth or Salem (I think Salem had been founded by then) fighting the French.

If they're *not* going to the Grantville universe.... why even suggest the date shift? The PTB could get away with "it happened before" rather than at the exact same time.
Comments from author:
Nope. Not gonna happen.

I don't know enough history to accurately portray even the smallest of changes the presence of the enhanced Scooby Gang would trigger, and I don't have the time that would be needed to research it properly.

The Scooby Gang, v 2.0 are going to be showing up somewhere else, substantially different.

And they aren't necessarily going to be happy about it. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)Baladen
Excellent setup. Are you going to continue in another Baen universe, or go somewhere else? The fact that Xander might recognize it suggests a TV or comic book crossover, instead of a SF novel crossover. I'm personally hoping for an Honorverse crossover (more specifically, a crossover with the stories co-written by Eric Flint - with the spies and Scrags and genetic slaves as opposed to starship combat). Dumping them on Torch would be tense at first, until they convinced Jeremy X they weren't hostiles. Then it would be awesome if they decided to fight against the Mesan Alignment and their genetically enhanced operatives.

On a separate note (Sorry Greywizard for hijacking your review to address somebody else): ThunderGod - Those horrible books of the 1632 series with the names and more names were written by one author: Virginia DeMarce. If you just ignore any main sequence books co-authored by her and the Gazette stories she wrote, you'll enjoy the series much more. That's what I do.
Comments from author:
All I'm going to say at the moment is that it won't be the Honor-verse, since I've already got one story going involving that particular 'verse.

I will admit that your suggestion is intriguing. Maybe I'll come back to that one, sometime. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Walkerbow
Damn good short story. But that is something I have come to expect from your stories.

Can't wait to hear what happens.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks for reviewing and commenting.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Cateagle
Ah, I can remember when "Ring of Fire" was in draft as "Fire In The Hole" and I agree that it and its many sequels are excellent reads. This is a great jumping-off place for all sorts of stories, such as a tour through various sf and/or fantasy universes or across various alternate universes (something like "Sliders", perhaps?). If time travel gets thrown in the mix, it get wilder still (imagine if they ended up back when Kane was at his height of power).
Comments from author:
Yeah, I decided that the 'incident' would be a perfect way to get the Gang where they're going.

And that's all I'm saying at this point. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from trongod
Holy Frijoles, Batman!! Love the 1632 series, and really can't wait to see where you go with this!

For example, are the Salyers and witches still retaining their abilities or some portion? 'Cause I doubt Buffy or Faith, much less Willow, could deal with being normal anymore. And are they now transported to out most favorite West Virginia town, or is it a massive effort to get there... and do they even have a clue that there's a 'there' to get to?

Hmmm, you being The Greywizard, I'd have to say that Whistler set them up to wind up on the road into Grantville in the opposite side from the soon to be investigated home on fire, maybe arriving at the school after Mike and his posse have already gone... maybe coming in and getting a brief intro just before they return somewhat blooded...?

What, you haven't posted more yet?!?! I am shocked, SHOCKED I say!!
Comments from author:
Sorry to dash your hopes, but the Scoobies Gang, Plus, are not going to meet up with the Grantville crowd in any way, shape or form.

They're going somewhere else, a place that only Xander or Andrew might recognize, as Whistler was trying to tell them before he was toasted.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CrystalBlaze
Interesting take on the Powers and the Senior Partners. It kind of reminds me of the Vorlons and Shadows of Babylon 5.
Comments from author:
Thanks. That's sort of the general idea I had about them - they're intent on keeping themselves in control for as long as they can manage, without disrupting the status quo, too much.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ScorpioP
A good starting point for a crossover. If I might point out, there's no reason the Slayers necessarily end up in 1632 Germany. They could end up in the Roman Empire, or Camelot, or for that matter, some future reality such as Star Trek or Blade Runner. (Or even some parallel reality.)
Comments from author:
That's what happening. They're going to find themselves somewhere far, far away, but not necessarily long, long ago. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Dmitri
So, you plan to do BtVS/Ring of Fire series crossover? Interesting, cannot wait to read more! ;)
Comments from author:
Nope, not the 'Ring Of Fire' 'verse. A different one, completely.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ThunderGod
The Jump off is hreat, the cross may be a headache..I've read the first 3, some of the Gazettes and attempted a few others..just gets boring and filled with names upon names...

anyway, as long as they don't meet up with the original group, this should be an interesting story
Comments from author:
They're not going to the same universe as Grantville. They're ending up in an entirely different universe.
