Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from Grovtech
Review:
I've enjoyed all of these stories. Everyone has their favorites, but I can't say I would not read any of these. Lonely, the main story line is my fav, but they are all good.

Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from (Recent Donor)redjacobson
Review:
Enjoyable story, but not as much as some of the others, simply because I have very little knowledge of, or interest in, the Stargate Universe. I will say that I hope that Marigold and all it's roots and flowers gets pulled up and burned to a crisp in the near future, they are Umbridge level evil.

That's always the problem with crossovers. I hope so too. Hmmm, Director Umbridge? ;-)

Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from DieselDriver
Review:
Regarding your A/N at the end of this chapter I have run out of recommendations. I normally don't recommend unfinished stories but I think next month I might just make an exception. LOL
Note: I would NOT do so just to get my name used. Use it or not, it's not a criteria.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I roll on a list of recommenders of all the stories in the series, so you're already in there. ( I do have to muddle through a lot of strange names...)

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Conceived in Liberty" from DieselDriver
Review:
They need a really good forensic accountant. Start with the budget and work their way down and down and down to see where the money is actually going. Catch a lot of people that way. Might take a corp though.
Comments from author:
There are probably some working on that already...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from Meneldur
Review:
Well, that was very interesting. Not much happened, but much was set up. Marigold moving in on the children, Dallman Ross being introduced and connected to various people (relatives of his?), Petra's tracking device, and so forth. Again, there's not much I can actually comment on, as not much happened, but it was all nice and enjoyable (which may be a much needed break, given the drama and suffering in previous chapters), and I eagerly anticipate the consequences of it all.

"It might be safe security might be important" - something here is either missing or repeated.
Comments from author:
Not very chapter can be action packed. Though my character driven style often lacks action for a long time.

Dallman is an Immortal. He is all those people. ;-)

Hopefully more action next time, though the characters might not agree.

I shall look at the text and see what is missing/repeated.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Stranger in a Strange Land" from draconis
Review:
.
You paint scenes quite well. They're easy to visualize and definitely add to the story.

Presumably they will ensure (with appropriate cover story) that children at all the Meier Houses are checked for similar tracking objects.

I'm a bit surprised they haven't set Janet up with an emergency portkey or magic alarm or similar. Even setting Cassandra up with a mundane wireless alarm capability would seem warranted given the situation. They couldn't possibly think the 'Marigold' threat to her is over with that one attempt.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

Yes, they will make sure all the children are checked. Even industrial red diamonds ought to be worth enough to give each kid a small bank account.

Portkeying and apparating isn't as common in channeling circles as in focus user circles. But measures have been taken and will be addressed next chapter.

And they don't. Marigold are persistent bastards, this they know.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from (Current Donor)Truthmaker
Review:
And we're now in early March here (sorry sorting timelines in my head again).

Once again Sam and Xeno are sweet with a side of cute. If this keeps up he might just find those Humongous Gazongas after all.

I was expecting a bit more from the first meeting between Senior Airman Weterings and Dr. Ross but I guess with the surroundings and timing it just wasn't meant to be, yet. Having both of them present (and there are good reasons why they both would be) when the eventual kidnap attempt happens should be interesting, if not eye-opening, though.

Overall, excellent work. :-D
Comments from author:
Yup, I need to get these stories aligned again. (Faith needs to play catch up)

Sam is quite well-endowed, yes. ;-)

There will be more happening with Dallman and Carole soon, I promise.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from (Current Donor)Cordyfan
Review:
A very nice chapter, with lots going on. Sam and Xeno are really starting to make a cute - if unlikely - couple, and I'm sure they'll solve of lot of thorny scientific problems in the process.

Dallman looks like he'll be an interesting character. I wonder how long before his cover is blown.

Nice glimpses of Hammond's family life, too, and Fraiser will have her hands full with young Petra.

Hopefully, that committee will all get their just desserts, sooner rather than later.

Thanks for writing this.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I like cute and unlikely. (And Sam could do a lot worse. Or, I might be using her Black Widow Curse to get rid of Xeno...)

Dallman is running into the fact that he's served in uniform a little too often.

Yes, and in both cases a father figure is needed...

All of them have 'unregistered' soul gems...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "And in his life, play many parts" from DofEire
Review:
"...and they all died in battle." Hahaha! I love that, recognized by so many! He must feel like Simon felt with the darn-near-infinite "Professor *Snape*?" exclamations in LS. :)
Comments from author:
Yeah, Dallman really should have thought about serving so often.

He and Simon can go and have a few drinks about it.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Conceived in Liberty" from GwynApNudd
Review:
I just remembered that in SG1 canon, Col Makepeace is eventually revealed to be a double agent working with the NID. Hammond and Jack are trusting him and his men with Cassandra. And the NID is more immediately interested in her than in the original canon. And now with Xeno coming for an extended visit, and Jon and Evy and their mystic anti-goauld technology so close, he may have to drop the act sooner than in the original timeline
Comments from author:
You are quite correct. How the thing with Makepeace will work out here is something you'll learn before QG ends.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Conceived in Liberty" from GwynApNudd
Review:
@TroyGuffey --

>> I'm guessing Maybourne is trying to recruit Riley into either the Initiative, or the conquistadores (the NID star-thieves)

I don't think the latter exists, as such, at this point, considering that infiltrating the Mountain is only an afterthought, and securing Cassandra for her magical potential is the main reason the NID is in Colorado Springs.

Also, we know (from the very same SG1 episode you referenced) that Newman is a loyal member of the NID, and therefore his supposed grumbling about his orders is probably a rehearsed cover giving him plausible deniability. It is doubtful whether he would really have expressed those doubts beforehand in front of Finn, especially if Finn were not on already on board, so Riley is also just giving out a rehearsed line.

I just don't think Col McNamara and Dr Walsh have started their Sunnydale operations yet, and so Riley has not been TDA'ed to them yet.

So they are both already NID, but the NID programs they were involved in when we first meet them in the original canon have not yet gelled.

EDIT:

I just re-read the section with Riley and Maybourne. Maybe Riley wasn't NID, yet. Or maybe this is just where he is first tested to see if he is ready to be put in touch with Walsh and McNamara and get enhanced.
Comments from author:
Riley is being recruited, having shown he's willing to cover the ass of someone who was willing to follow questionable orders...
