Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Geyer
Review:
The story is wrapping up nicely, although I was sorry to see there's just one more chapter. I like the way you're writing the characters; Daniel, of course, is used to adapting to strange cultures very quickly, so it seems natural that he fits in. It was nice to see him in action when they went to retrieve the idol. Considering the responsibilities and friendships both Daniel and Wesley have, I don't think either one would want to join the other's group at this point. But this is season 3, so if the story lines continue as they did on the show, soon there will be the Connor arc and Wesley's attempt to save the son from the father, after which he really doesn't have much to keep him in LA; he might just be open to the offer of a job that would take him far away from what happened.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from AllenPitt
Review:
Maybe a sequel where Sam tries to recruit Fred to the Stargate program, after reading her article on portals? Might be kind of funny if both Sam & Daniel "find out" about demons but neither tells anybody else in the SGC for obvious reasons.
Comments from author:
I think it unlikely, but I suppose that's theoretically possible.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Himuradono
Review:
Welcome to new world order Daniel - your world-view might be just tilting right about now. And to think that aliens were the strangest thing that could happen to him.

Good stuff and nice touch with Cordelia even if some of her comebacks were a bit 'meh'. "Did you become the big boss by winning a 'stating the obvious' contest?"
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it.

Honestly, I don't think aliens are any stranger than demons, when you get down to it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from TroyGuffey
Review:
Very nice, well written!

You have the characters in character.

Yeah, Sam and Fred would be like a binary hand grenade: Mix and RUN AWAY!

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from DianeCastle
Review:
> This is something of a filler chapter, in some ways, but it provides an important bridge to get me to when the action picks back up, and I, personally find these kinds of 'filling the characters in' chapters interesting in crossovers. And I tend to write what I like to read.

You should ALWAYS write what you want to read. (Unless you're doing something experimental to stretch your writing skills.) I like fill-in chapters too! Granted, I tend to write way too much fill, but that's also because I tend to do a lot of world-building, even in crossover fanfic.

So keep up the good work, and write the chapters you want to write. And read the types of stories you like, so you can take notes and improve. And if people complain about your writing style, remember that they may not realize how harsh they appear to be, and don't let it bother you.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from AllenPitt
Review:
It'd be interesting if Pylea was actually a planet in another star system, not another "dimension" at all. Maybe even has a stargate connection. can you just imagine Daniels' reaction if he hears an SG team has made contact with aliens on a world they call "Pylea"?
* Makes one wonder about where Glory was really from.....
Comments from author:
Except that with Glory, we know that she had a different form when in her own dimension. And some of what we know of alternate dimensions in Buffyverse canon suggest radically different natural physics, to the point where they can't exist in a reality where the natural laws (which exist everywhere in our universe) are the same.

It would be interesting, and has been used in at least one good fanfic (can't recall the name, but it was a longish oneshot involving Xander being in the SGC and they go to Pylea at the same time Cordelia ends up there), but for the purposes of Old Friends, Pylea is indeed a different dimension, rather than a different planet.

Glad you liked it though :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 1" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
follow up to
"re
" Wesley was still working for the IWC.” He saw Hammond raise an eyebrow. “I don't know what it stands for, Wesley didn't either."

Note that Wesley had _already_ graduated from the Watchers Academy when they met so he _knew_ what it meant, and would have been trained on standard IWC cover stories. I find it very unlikely that after a couple of centuries the IWC hadn't found some reasonable but unrevealing title using "IWC" to explain it. The Internal Wood Council or something.

When the Phoenician language text was stashed, I expected that Daniel would find it while Wesley was out of the room and absentmindedly start translating it.

Comments from author:

The idea that an ancronym can be so old as to have lost its meaning entirely (accidentally or not) is not impossible. BP used to stand for 'British Petroleum'. Now the company literally is just called 'BP'. Its not 'British Petroleum' at all.

And Daniel wouldn't exactly have a chance to do that, given that when Wesley actually leaves "



I was seeing the Phoenician text as a "Chekov's musket" for future plot development rather than the throwaway bit it apparently was.

As for "IWC" being an acronym that lost its actual meaning, (A) It would be _far_ simpler for the IWC to have a long established "cover meaning" for it, such as "Internal Wood Council" or (B) for the cover to _be_ that its origin had been forgotten. In either case its odd that Wesley hadn't been trained on the cover, and to use it without hesitation. ie "What's the IWC stand for"? Answered by (A) "The Internal Wood Council, whatever _that_ is". or "Nobody knows _what_ it stands for, its meaning was forgotten over two hundred years ago, but they still use it for traditions sake. Silly isn't it?"

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from dreameralways
Review:
I would think that right now they are both kind of needed where they are, making me thing that in the end they will both stay where they belong.

Very interesting supposition.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
So... how long until both sides start having to work out how their worlds fit into each other?

If you need ideas on that front- or just someone to bounce your own ideas off- consider me available; Daniel's reaction to everything here was EXCELLENT...
Comments from author:
I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the offer :)

Glad you liked it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from cflat
Review:
So glad somebody's trying a different way that Wesley could be recruited to the SGC. I also like that you've just introduced Daniel to what Angel Investigations is really about. Can't wait for the next chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from ajw
Review:
Interesting.

I don't really think though that Daniel would be that surprised demons, vampires and other supernatural nasties are real. He is an archaeologist after all and they're likely all taught a bit about the supernatural just in case they encounter vampires be they the regular kind of the primeval Turak-Han or something even nastier during a dig. Not to mention the occasional dodgy magical item left in a tomb or crypt.
Comments from author:
Indiana Jones is not the Archeological community. :P So, not really.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from AndreaMaine
Review:
Could be that Angel Investigations would work out as Daniel's moonlighting job. Now I wonder if he can get Wesley to think about an associate position with the SGC. I can imagine that Hammond if this is that part of the SG timeline would consider the presence of a demon population on Earth as an on going Foothold situation.
Comments from author:
Certainly possible.
