Review of chapter "Redirected" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
I'm only part of the way through but I've stopped to ask why on Earth did you go for the ludicrous figure of 300,000 Slayers with an even more ridiculous 700,000 killed by the Bringers prior to 'Chosen'? Before Joss revealed in the comics that there are 1,800 Slayers no-one else had ever guessed at more than 3 or 4 hundred. 700,000 young girls stabbed to death in a few months? That would be the biggest news story of all time. No parents anywhere in the world would have let their teenage daughter out of their sight without an armed guard for the next several years. Any police force in the world (except Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia) that didn't make investigating the murders their number one priority would be lynched to a man.

Other people have already mentioned the problems with the Stargate people thinking they can just threaten to have the Scoobies thrown in jail if they don't help. There is a little thing called evidence, you know; all such evidence fell into a giant crater. They can't just read a few things in files and think they can use it to get convictions. In most cases the things wouldn't be in any files in the first place; if anyone had known about Xander stealing the RPG, for instance, he'd have been arrested long ago.
Comments from author:
As to your first question, mostly because this was my first fanfic ever. I hadn't quite mastered the technique of asking the obvious questions that make the backstory smooth.

On your second paragraph, though, I stick to my guns. I don't doubt (especially given some of the stuff in Season 8) that the military could come along and toss the entire Buffy gang in the clink if they wanted--assuming they could manage to subdue them all. Although, as you quite reasonably point out, it would be on other charges and through other means. I would venture that the only reason they didn't is because Buffy and crew never got up to anything that could properly threaten the country.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from StargatePrime
Review:
I haven't read the story yet, am about to though, but have read the authors notes.

For Information on TV shows go to Wikipedia at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

And type in the name of the series in the search engine like this:

Angel (TV series)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series)
Stargate SG-1 (TV series)

This site is where I get all my information from. It's great. Even has a whole page on the Tok'ra & individual pages for each character.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from burmafrd
Review:
I have read the other reviews and will not mention the numerous logical, legal, and charactor flaws that have already been mentioned. Though why you need to bash Buffy like you did is a mystery to me; Faith, frankly, acted a lot worse more often for less reason and you make her the hero. Buffy suffered a lot more then anyone else by a mile; but I guess some people cannot write fanfiction staring one without tearing others down. One thing- even though she might carry a grudge for her BETRAYAL- remember that?- by her FAMILY AND FRIENDS and supposedly SISTER SLAYERS- she would still do her duty and also make sure that Dawn was ok. Your charactor assasination is totally unneccesary and detracts from the story. I have read the sequel and it does not seem that you learn very well from your mistakes.
I have added your name to the small list of authors whose work I avoid.
Comments from author:
Now granted, this was my first fanfic, so there are a lot of flaws in it, many of which I have learned to avoid in my work afterwards. And no, I'm not talking about the sequel, which I wrote *very* shortly after this one. These stories were written over three years ago. Believe it or not, I have learned from my mistakes.

However, with all that, after re-reading my story (several years later), I can say with confidence, I didn't bash Buffy; at least, not much. You, quite honestly, are apparently in love with her. In fact, after looking over your reviews, it seems like any story that doesn't show Buffy in a 100% sympathetic and positive light gets a scathing review from you. Most of your reviews are scathing. Very few are genuinely constructively critical, and a much, much smaller minority are reviews of fics that you actually like.

The fact of the matter is, Buffy isn't perfect. Most of the time, she's a self-centered drama queen, who will also get her act together and save the world when necessary. That was the characterization I was going for in this fic, and while I'll admit I missed badly, I didn't treat her nearly as badly as you like to make out. Just because she's not my favorite, doesn't mean I "don't get her."

By the way, please continue to avoid my work in the future. I'm adding your name to the small list of readers whose fanship I won't miss.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from liit
Review:
hi like the story but not liking the buffy bashing... what do you mean buffy doesn't know the difference when the person is a vampire,buffy is been slaying for years than faith and you made faith an expert on recognising whose a vampire or not, what about the first man she killed and don't even go to angel thing she's new and i believe it's the soul thing that's why it's hard to pin point that he's bad. you made buffy like a whiner and as for buffy not letting faith do her own thing since when and like you said there's alot of slayer already so buffy shouldn't be too hang up about faith helping others.. i really do like your story it just that you made buffy really look bad and she isn't, she is a good slayer and been saving the world a lot and i know some slayer should get recognize for their effort also, you could of just say it instead "it's always about buffy" coming from faith..sorry i don't want to sound mean, i guess just my opinion

Review of chapter "Redirected" from TroyGuffey
Review:
The story was pretty well written, but contained some big flaws in logic (in my opinion):

-Jacob is compromised, he has a snake in his head. No way would be be put in charge of the SGC, and I doubt he would consider it even if asked.
-Charlie is acting too American.
-The binary sun "canceling out" thing is ridiculous. Pylea's suns didn't fry Angel because the dimensional laws were different.
-300k Slayers still alive out 1 Million before is totally ridiculous. Most Slayers were Council-trained and they couldn't have have the numbers for nearly a million Potentials.
-Vamps are almost certainly not as powerful as you said. 4 time human strength and speed is survivable with training, but the levels described in this story are not. No matter HOW stupid most vamps are.
-SG-1 should have been given their "vampire kits" BEFORE going through the gate, not just right before going into the nest.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from cflat
Review:
Great story! What's the 'A' stand for in SG-A? Can't wait to read the sequel!
Comments from author:
The "A" doesn't actually stand for anything. It's a team designation like SG-1, only because they fight supernatural things rather than normal things, they get letters instead of numbers.

Ya' know, that should actually go into a fic somewhere. Thanks for bringing it up.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from Wendy
Review:
love this meshing - seems very realistic and I love how you've kept Faith's character without compromising her redemption.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Faith is one of my favorite characters. She's so...spunky, I guess. I was really glad when they brought her back. I also really like the redemption-and-change backstory that she has.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from Nightwind
Review:
Excellent, though I am suprised that Buffy didn't blow more of a gasget than she did. I mean having the key within reach of the Goa'uld would be a very bad thing if any of them knew any magic.
Comments from author:
As far as Buffy and the other Scoobes...I'm not gonna get to them much. There may be a fic in this 'verse later on where Faith and gang have to help Buffy kill something evil, but for the most part they're gonna be "off-screen" and out of the spotlight.

That "key within reach of the goa'uld" thing, though, is a good idea. I hadn't previously considered that angle. I'll have to bring that into play somehow...

Review of chapter "Redirected" from Phidan
Review:
I really enjoyed reading this story. I don't disagree with the previous couple of reviews, but I think the virtues of your story far outweigh a couple of doubtful plot points. I give you big brownie points for posting a complete story instead of tiny chapters, though I rather hope you'll write a sequel or further explore your post-Chosen vision of the Watcher's Council. You've done well with the characterisations, on the whole, and I was quite involved in the story while I read it. I hope you'll write more.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much. Characterization was my biggest fear writing this.

Review of chapter "Redirected" from Thedruid
Review:
Good start, and your technical writeing skills are good. But I have to give it a low rateing because this story is lacks depth of charcters and plot. Stuff happens in it, and plot lines get compleated, and I like Faith redemption stories, but it has no bite, it doesn't really draw the reader into the story at all. Hopefully it will improve if you write more.
Comments from author:
Ouch! My ego! Fair, though, and I appreciate (I hate spelling that word!) your comments. I will try to improve in future installments.
