Review of chapter "Lion of the Desert" from GwynApNudd
Review:
>> So, Tarantula and the blob? or is just the Tarantula in this case?
>>Comments from author:
>>Oh, I think a giant tarantula is enough of a problem. After all, Alex is really just starting out as a superheroine

Oh great and powerful Evil Author: That response is not exactly fair to the newbie reader, considering what happens before the end of this story arc. :D
Comments from author:
"Do not arouse the wrath of the great and powerful Oz! I said come back tomorrow!"

I rather suspect that my response is not fair to the reader who has seen the movie, either.

Review:
Amazing as usual :) have a great easter brake and thank you for writing
Comments from author:
Thanks! But I have kids, so there's no such thing as a 'great break from school'. :D :D

Review of chapter "Mission Accomplished" from mtbknox
Review:
Do you know what crossover you need "Nikita", working against the bad guys from inside.
Comments from author:
Nikita (well, actually "La Femme Nikita") actually made my long list when I was working up which crossovers would make it into various story arcs.

Review of chapter "Desert Fury" from GwynApNudd
Review:
>>Well, actually the most popular character to use the phase "Sue me!" is the Red devil from Cow and Chicken cartoon.

Maybe it's different generations, maybe it's Show Tunes vs cartoons, but I agree with Diane on this one. When I hear "So nu, so sue, me." My first thought is of "Good old, reliable Nathan." (My second, of course is "Ever-loving Adelaide," but, as the gatekeeper said, "That's a horse of a different color.)
Comments from author:
There are now a number of options, because it's become mainstream enough that Americans who hardly even know any Jewish people have heard it plenty of times. If it weren't for the mainstreaming of Yiddish into American culture, "Blazing Saddles" would have required a lot of re-writing, which would have been a tragedy. :D

Review of chapter "Mission Accomplished" from Senko
Review:
Fruitcake? But they're full of diamonds as an emergency stash because no one ever eats them till things are really, really bad and you need the gems.

Still looking forward to seeing what happens to the NID politically after they caused a major international incident like this.

As for the electric fence story you mentioned in another review yowtch, I had some people convince me to touch one by pretending it wasn't when I was standing on a metal cattle grid.

EDIT
So "Evil, evil authoress" does that mean your planning a Sam/Jack/Willow ????? (Threesome implies sex. What's the word for a stable happy relationship with 3 people two of the same sex?)
Comments from author:
There was an old "Not Necessarily the News" bit where they advised against giving old people fruitcakes 'because no one wants a gift that will outlast them.' I miss that show.

Comments from author:
But Nathan Detroit is the classic Damon Runyon character who introduced the phrasing (which according to my linguistics research comes from the Yiddish by way of Jewish screenwriters) to the American public. Since then it has become mainstream.

Review of chapter "Desert Flower" from raxadian
Review:
Why most doctors in fiction have to be crazy in some way?
Comments from author:
Well, most of the PhDs in this story will be sane. And Danielle Atron is more a businesswoman than a biochemist, evne if she's a very good biochemist. But go watch the movie. Dr. Deemer is not your classic 50's mad scientist. He seems like a good person who's working on something unusual in an attempt to help mankind. Being the 50's, it goes horribly, horribly wrong.

From a meta point of view, you have to have your monsters come from *somewhere*. Mad science is a good option if you're not going with radiation, aliens, stuff older than mankind, demons...

Review of chapter "Summertime and..." from raxadian
Review:
Honesty, Alex going to the Air Force Academy would end with her being screwed over one way or another, due to the fact her ADN is no longer human. and Jack is not all powerful, he can't protect Alex every time. So I really, really hope she doesn't take the military option. Also, writing reports. Plus if she finds a cute guy she likes and also works for Jack she won't be able to have a relationship with him if both are military. So staying a civilian doubles her dating options!

And yes I know that her dumping such a loyal guy would be kind of a jerkass move, but it might happen.
Comments from author:
I think Alex loves photography enough (it's canon!) that she's going to try that option, at least for a while.

Review of chapter "Mission Accomplished" from Starfox
Review:
Good chapter - the kind of nice winding down one can expect from you after an Action arc, with characters touching base and getting grounded again in regular life. Well done!
Comments from author:
Thanks. And since a large part of this story is *Alex's* development, there has to be time for that too.

Review:
What is this 'Write too much' thing? How is that even possible...?

Well, I do have a tendency toward 'logorrhea of the keyboard'.

Review of chapter "Mission Accomplished" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Oh, the possible Sam-and-Jack complication -- I hadn't thought of that, since Alex's universe's Sam seems to operate in a very different field from Jack's (most of the time). But it took years of risking their lives together and surviving all sorts of horrible stuff to bring the SGC's Sam and Jack so close together, and that's unlikely to happen under current circumstances.

Plus, I don't think Jack's the type who'd let himself even THINK about cheating on the woman he loves, let alone acting on it (or breaking up with her simply in order to be free to explore other options), so I'm still looking forward to seeing Sam become more closely allied with the SRI and its most important people, if that's what the almighty author has planned for them! :)
Comments from author:
Well, the Evil Authoress does have evil, evil plans ahead. So you'll get to see more of Sam, once she's healthy again.

Review of chapter "Mission Accomplished" from (Recent Donor)draconin
Review:
I did wonder what might happen with the Sam/Jack vibe when they met. On the other hand, in SG1, when they first met Sam thought he was an irritating idiot and Jack thought she was a stuck up feminist (exaggeration but still). I can easily see Jack's jokes annoying her, Sam & Willow becoming BFFs and Jack feeling a bit left out.
Comments from author:
Well, you will get to see the Jack/Sam meeting. Just not in the next chapters.

Review of chapter "Mission Accomplished" from LFW
Review:
Nice bit of science for Alex's powers and I am very impressed with how you tied it all together to get Sam and Vince healed
Thanks
Looking forward to more
Comments from author:
Thanks! I really wanted Sam to get to do the 'big ol' brain' thing that was one of her defining characteristics in Stargate.
