Review of chapter "The Key" from Xayian
Review:
Okay, so I read this - again - and an idea popped into my head in case you ever decide to do a sequel. You know that virtual reality machine SG 1 stumble acrossed in the ep "The Gamekeeper"? Yeah, what if Dawn got stuck in it? It would be a real wake up call for SG1 in really understanding what Dawn went through. A kind of they-didn't-realize-they-had-some-doubt-about-magic-moment-till-they-lived-it moment. What do you think? If you don't want to do it, can I put out there as a challenge? :)

Heh. Yeah. Still trying to imagine a Dawn/SG1 future.

Hi Xayian,

Thanks for the review. Nice idea, and a great way to re-introduce the scooby-verse (in memory form) while staying in "character" in terms of the rules I've established for this story (that is, only Dawn can travel safely between universes). I'm not really writing fanfic at the moment, but if my work stirs someone else's imagination, who am I to argue? So feel free to post a challenge.

Regards, Tals

Review of chapter "The Key" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
This story is every bit as good and complex and touching as I remembered from my previous reading of it. Sorry to have been so derelict as to not have reviewed before.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea.

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "The Key" from breve
Review:
i loved this story!
it's tragic and funny and moving all in one.
a really refreshing and interesting version of dawn that i haven't seen before in fanfic world - probably because i generally don't read dawn-centred fics since i found her character so annoying on the show - but i really enjoyed this story a lot.
thanks for writing it.

Review of chapter "The Key" from maxthehobbit
Review:
Just read this story again. I forgot how good it is. The most amazing thing is that it all made sense and portrayed Dawn a little different than canon, being older, more experienced and quite a bit wiser, no longer the brat or the wise ass. Most crossovers tend to focus more on one series or the other. Your story uses both Buffy and Stargate equally and your portrayal of Both Dawn and the Stargate people are spot on. Thanks for sharing this great story. I think I even enjoyed it more the second time.

Hi Maxthehobbit,

Thanks for taking the time to review this, even on the second read through. I'm glad my portrayal of Dawn worked for you - writing the story my goal was to create a realistic character, who had evolved from her canon personality through her experiences. I've always loved Dawn as a character and felt she had a lot of potential for growth. Thanks again for the review.

regards,
Tals

Thanks for your review McGurrin. I hope I'll one day get back into writing fic, but currently I am too distracted by real life.

Review of chapter "The Key" from maxthehobbit
Review:
I am very impressed ... English is your third language and you made so few errors and none that had any impact on the story.

I have only seen two episodes of SG1, but I have read a ton of fan fiction cross-overs with Buffy & SG1.

I really liked the way you made Dawn a pretty much regular person without any extraordinary abilities or magical enhancements.

I think I've read every Dawn story on the web that's over 20K long and this is the third best out of the hundreds I've read, maybe even second best. The first best was 350K. If this story was longer, it might have been the best, but that would be a hell of a lot or writing.

If you decide to write again ... I'll definitely read your stories

Thanks for sharing this wonderful story, I couldn't stop reading till I finished it.

Review of chapter "The Key" from SEAborg
Review:
I've just finished reading through the story, and I must say that I quite enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I never have actually watched any episodes of Stargate (something I plan on changing) so I am limited on what I can say, but the story overall seems quite well-written.

Additionally, while there were errors, they were only minor errors that could be skipped over without problems, without detracting from the story.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review, SEAborg, glad you liked the story. I can recommend Stargate, although the first season is really the weakest, it gets better from thereon out. I'm glad the story made sense despite no prior knowledge of stargate...

As for the errors, I (now, being more proficient) find some of them positively cringeworthy myself, but haven't had the time (nor inclination, to be truthful) to go back and fix it. I wrote it some years ago, and English is a third language for me, so in the grand scheme of things, I'm simply happy that the errors aren't too frequent, and don't detract from the story.

Thanks again for the review.

Review of chapter "The Key" from Oddshot
Review:
This is a very good story but its been left hanging for to long so can you update this to a conclusion or maybe a sequel story to follow on in this universe .
Comments from author:
Hi Oddshot. Thanks for your review, I'm glad you liked the story, but slightly confused as to why you would think it lacks a conclusion. It is finished.

It chronicles Dawn's life from the beginning, where she is a traumatized, broken survivor of a lost world, without any real purpose or peace in her life, to the last chapter, where she has finally found a place to belong, and has come to terms with both her past and her future. Sure there are other adventures to be told, and questions that SG1 might have at the end of this, but the important story - Dawn's journey into some semblance of belonging, of peace - has ended, and the big questions, about the key, about who she is, have been answered.

Regards Tals, and Thanks again for the review.
