Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Grovtech
Review:
Very enjoyable. You've mixed two very different series together rather successfully. Good job!
Comments from author:
Thank you, and thanks for commenting. As the series continues, there will be other crossovers coming in.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ShyBob
Review:
Even though I saw where this was going, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus, Faith being (mostly) diplomatic!
Comments from author:
She's learning, plus she actually likes Seaborn - he offered to help the last time she met him, and she respects that.

Thank you for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DavidBMorris
Review:
I'm reviewing this story, because of the three that you've done, it's the least likely to be done. Nevertheless, consider the comments apply to all three stories.

It's very difficult to do a good WW/Buffy crossover. The dialog pattern is similar, but they're so light-years apart in universe. I've only seen a handful done well, and I'm glad to add this one to the lot. It's well written, it has a fair amount of the witty repartee that the show had at the peak of its powers, and had an interesting couple of plots. I particularly look forward to seeing how no. 3 turns out.

My one minor criticism with this story is I'm still not sure WHEN it's taking place. I know the two series don't have dovetailing time-lines, and that countless stories have found ways around it. But in story number 1, because of the relationships I couldn't tell when it was taking place--- mainly because it wasn't clear whether Donna and Josh had gotten together or if Sam was still in the White House. You didn't help by having so much discussion of Santos and Vinick in the story.--- it wasn't until Bartlet and Leo showed up that I could at least make an educated guess.

I think I know when story 3 is taking place--- sometime in Season 6, but you could save a lot of headaches, if you could start the next chapter with a little footnote--- saying 'this story takes place' and then telling us when.

Keep the story coming, and the reviews will follow. Trust me.

Thanks for reviewing.

SPOILERS:

I'm planning to bring in Stargate, which had its own politicians - Hence the mentions of Hayes and Kinsey in the third story, both of whom are Stargate characters. Hopefully, we'll end up with a "blended" timeline.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Hecatonchires
Review:
I liked the moment of realpolitik between Faith and Lilah :)
Comments from author:
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it. It just seemed like a "Faith" thing to do.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I love seeing one of Wolfram and Hart's scheisters put in their place; it's especially nice when Faith is the one doing it. Thanks! :)
Comments from author:
Thank you. This is a case of a story growing out of a small idea - what would happen if Faith just happened to run into one of the West Wing people from the previous story ? Then I remembered about Sam running for Congress in California, which just happens to be where W & H recently lost a pet politician, and suddenly I had a story !

I'm glad you liked it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from eriktheviking
Review:
A well written connection between national level politics and Hell's lawyers, along with an interesting reflection by Sam on Faith's opinions about international politics.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much.

The political connection came easily - on ATS, we had the "Senator Brucker" character, and on TWW, we had Sam running for Congress in the same state. So it made sense that Wolfram & Hart might take an interest in Sam's career.

As for Faith's opinions; she's one of the people that actually carries out the policies that other people come up with - sort of a one-woman Rapid Deployment Force. Naturally, she's going to see the practical side of things.

Edit : Originally I had the senator's name as "Buckner". It's actually "Brucker", and has been fixed.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Greywizard
Review:
very enjoyable snippet, and I especially liked the way that one could interpret several of the various conversations (up until the end of the story) to take it as the Council not approving of Sam's candidacy.

And I think you nailed Faith's characterization perfectly. If she likes someone, she'll make a point of making sure that the Bad Guys (tm) don't try to screw them over.

Since Lilah is a very smart woman, she should be *very* concerned about the Senior Partners' plans. ;-)
Comments from author:
Thank you very much. I'm obviously a Faith fan, and I like writing her. She's a lot smarter than most people realize, and I enjoy showing that.

I'd like to take credit for the Council's position being unclear, but the truth is that I was just trying for a big reveal by hiding the identity of exactly who was in the parking garage until the last moment. So the feature you pointed out is related but was really just a side effect. Sometimes my subconscious fools even me.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from burmafrdnow
Review:
Good do more, but leave that Ragnarok mess out of it.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. Ragnarok isn't essential for these stories, I'm just using the same background history and some of the characters, mostly Sanchez.
