Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from TouchoftheWind
Review:
This was great- loved Sam ringing Dean while drunk and his awe at Connor being a champion....now we need to have a sequel with Connor, Sam, and Jess as room mates while hunting evil- Connor and Jess could behave like brother/sister to each other.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you liked the drunk dialing scene. It was a lot of fun to write. I'm working on the first sequel right now, but a few more things have to happen before they move in together. As they spend more time together Connor will treat Jess more and more like a second sister.

Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from HebiR
Review:
This story is NOT complete. Really. More like part 1 of an unknown number. I hope you plan on doing more.
Btw, Abba is Hebrew as well. While Jesus would have spoken Aramaic in daily life, in his time Hebrew was the language of prayer and sacred discussion, and the language used to address the Lord (even if technically the word for father is the same in both languages). Also, again in Hebrew, "abba" is the way you would adress your own father (you used it correctly), but in general, a father is "av" and "my father" would be "avi."
Comments from author:
Yes, there will be more stories in the Stanford's Hunters series. I'm working on story two in a twelve story arch right now. I had hoped to have it out already, but the process of gaining a second job interfered with my writing time.

My understanding was that Abba is a word in both Hebrew and Aramaic. In Hebrew it meant 'Father' while in Aramaic it translated to a less formal 'Dad' or 'Daddy'. Some time ago, I read through several arguements by bible historians and scriptural critics as to whether Jesus was speaking Hebrew or Aramaic when he referred to God as Abba. While I saw valid points to both sides of the arguement, in the end, I gave Jessica the belief that I felt best fit within the story.

Thanks for the feedback - Debra

Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from (Current Donor)Listener
Review:
An interesting start and "pairing" (Sam and Connor as demon hunters). I do think you spent far too much time on exposition in chapter 3, telling us what we already knew about AtS, and Jessica telling us what she'd already learned made it more obvious. Same with Sam's backstory. I was already interested, though, because of the first two chapters, so good job there.
Comments from author:
I've like the idea of Sam and Connor teaming up ever since I realized both went to Stanford. A few others have touched on the potential connection, but I wanted to go deeper into the possible outcomes; thus this series.

Yes, I know chapters three and four involved a lot of backstory. A writing rule of thumb says: never assume your reader knows anything you haven't directly told them. If I was only posting here I could maybe assume everyone knew about Angel and Connor and skip that chapter, but since I'm also posting on FanFiction.net I really needed to include everyone's history. Though I did try to include enough character interaction to keep it from being mind numbingly boring. Since I've gotten feedback from Angel fans that don't watch SPN, and SPN fans that never saw Angel I think I made the necessary choice.

That said I hope to make this an action adventure series, with some humor and drama tossed in to keep things interesting. The characters may make light references to their pasts in the coarse of future stories, but I will not be dwelling on it again.

Thanks for the feedback - Debra

Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
The picture you create of Sam’s life at Stanford is generally effective- a bit sceptical about everyone so easily accepting ‘werewolf’ as an explanation, but I suppose when face-to-face with the creature in question natural scepticism is put aside-, and the concept of him, Connor and Jessica ‘setting up shop’ in Stanford should be interesting (Particularly regarding how Azazel will react to that little disruption of his plans)...
Comments from author:
I figured, with Sam starting the series so set on having a 'normal' life, only an in-your-face encounter with a monster of some sort would be enough to get him to even consider opening up about his past. What we will see of Azazel's reactions will mostly come from poor possessed Brady.

Thanks for your feedback - Debra

Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from SnakeFox
Review:
So disappointed this is over! Unless you're planning a sequel? I mean, you didn't even get into that whole "home grown demons" vs "cross dimensional demons" thing you mentioned in the chapter 1 author note. Seems like there's so much more that could be done in this universe!
Comments from author:
You will be happy to know I have, not just one, but eleven more stories planned for this series. It will follow Sam, Connor, Jess and a few others who join them through the next year and a half of college; including the Halloween of the Supernatural pilot during Sam's senior year.

Thanks for your feedback - Debra

Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from Jaylynn
Review:
Oh I get two chapters today! I missed the update for chapter 3, so yeah. XD Sams drunk call to Dean was my favorite part, it seemed to be just the thing to help relieve some stress from him. I'm also curious if Conners contacts will have any sources on Sams mothers killer.
Comments from author:
The scene with Sam drunk dialing Dean wasn't originally in the outline, but when the idea came to me it was too fun not to write down. Sam and Dean will eventually get some information through Connor's contacts, but it will take time for it to come out.

Thanks for the feedback - Debra

Review of chapter "Forging an alliance" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
Very sweet story. I'm kind of sorry it's done. I do like your ability to forge a universe from a small number of words and tell a story compactly, however.

Comments from author:
Thank you for your kind words. When I first came up with this AU I had lots of ideas, but didn't want a meandering epic, so I decided on a series of shorter and hopefully more focused stories. I plan to start on the sequel 'Meetings and Greetings' soon.

Thanks for your feedback - Debra

Review of chapter "Weird, even by hunter standards" from purrfus
Review:
Nice job sharing the information in an interesting way. Can't wait to read the other side.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I tried really hard to make Connor's explanation more than just a series recap.

Review of chapter "Battling the beast" from purrfus
Review:
The interaction is good. Its kind of strange having so many people knowing something. But since I don't watch SPN, did all these people know something in SPN land?
Comments from author:
Several of the characters I took from SPN did eventually learn about the supernatural though not usually in a good way. By throwing a werewolf at them I greatly changed the timeline. Originally . . .

Sam - was raised to hunt monsters.
Jessica - didn't learn about the supernatural until moments before her death at the hands of her demon-possessed friend Brady.
Zack - was impersonated by a shapeshifter who murdered his girlfriend and left him to take the blame. Sam and Dean helped clear his name.
Luis - never learned about the supernatural.

April is a character I created so she doesn't count.

Review of chapter "A werewolf on campus" from purrfus
Review:
I don't read SPN or SPN crossovers as a rule; I'm not sure what made me click on this. So far, so interesting.
Comments from author:
I'm pleased to see you found my story interesting enough to read, even though SPN isn't usually your thing.

Review of chapter "Battling the beast" from Jaylynn
Review:
Interesting start and I'm curious how Sams past coming out so soon will effect things.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Sam's past being revealed so soon will change some things, while others will continue to follow 'destiny'. Sorry if I'm being annoyingly vague, but I don't want to give away future plots too soon.
