Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Actually found this on the forums. I think it would make a great long form story. I think your Dawn and Daniel would make a great couple. Anyway, just wanted to say I like your work.

Comments from author:
Thank you so much for the feedback! It's been years since I wrote any fanfic, and it's always such a pleasant surprise to see a review pop up. As for the Dawn/Daniel pairing, this fic was written as part of a story exchange/challenge thingamabob, and that pairing was part of the request. I probably never would have gone there, but I wanted to meet as many of the requested pairings as possible. I surprised myself that I really saw some possibilities with those two.

I agree that this concept would make a good long form story. In fact, I think it would have worked better that way. I would have liked to see where any further SGC/Scooby gang collaborations might have gone, but this was written for a deadline, and I never came back to continue it.

Thank you again for your lovely comment!

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from RevDorothyL
Somehow I missed this one earlier, but I wanted to compliment you on a fun SG1/Scoobies romp.

Thanks so much for the review! I haven't posted anything in years and I was shocked to see the email alert that there was a new review on one of my stories. Thanks again, you totally made my day. :-)

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from (Moderator)acs
A nice short/interesting fic. It doesn't need more added but it could easily be taken further. I would love to know how Wesley ended up with Faith and what happens with the Dawn/Daniel pairing.

It even works without a mention of Buffy (I'm assuming she's either off somewhere bonding with Giles or she's still in Italy/Europe trying to prove to herself that she doesn't need to be an active slayer (I'm a fan of Buffy the character but I don't think every crossover fic requires her presence. It's nice to see a fic with Faith having a solid role without Buffy-bashing. Thanks :) ). ) And I like the way you treat Kennedy with respect. We need more positive Kennedy fics also.

Thanks :-)

Thank you so much for the feedback! This was a Fic-A-Thon story, so the characters and pairings were already set, and I had to find a way to make those pairings work. It was a bit of a challenge - the good kind. I'd never imagined writing Wes/Faith. I think the pairing can work, but they have some serious history and I think that needs to be taken into consideration. I didn't really explore their backstory here since I was under time constraints for the Fic-A-Thon, but I'd love to see how they managed to evolve their relationship into something romantic. I did mention in my comments in a couple other reviews the bare bones of how I imagine they got together.

As for Kennedy, I think she gets the short end of the stick in fic. I'm not a huge fan of the character (I'm a W/T 'shipper all the way), but I think character-bashing is just bad writing - unless you're specifically going for the tongue-in-cheek badfic vibe. I find bitchy-Buffy, saint-Willow, and evil-Kennedy to be both boring and more than a tad silly. All Joss' characters had positive and negative qualities. Kennedy may have been 'kind of a brat', but she was self-aware enough to acknowledge that side of her personality. She was also strong, very protective of Willow, and remember that scene where she tries to seduce Willow in the Bronze . . . seriously hot.

I imagine that Buffy is off baking her metaphorical cookie dough. She wasn't a requested character, and I chose not to complicate things by trying to figure out a way to fit her in. I suppose I could have mentioned where she was - I think either of your guesses works well.

Thanks again!

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from Duchess
What an intriguing way to do a crossover! Will you be continuing this story? *hoping so*
Comments from author:
Thank you!

I'm always surprised and a little giddy when I get a new review on an older story.

I'm sorry to say that I'm not planning on continuing this story any time soon. Maybe some time in the future, but I've got a Buffy/Highlander WIP that desperately needs to be finished first. This story was a one-off for a Fic-A-Thon. The specific requests helped to dictate the direction of the story. It took me the longest time to figure out how Faith, Wes, Willow, Kennedy, and Dawn could believably meet up with SG-1.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from zili
I think your characterazation of faith is good and dawn too, loved the story
Comments from author:
Thank you! Since this was a fic-a-thon story I didn't get much choice in the characters. I'd never written Faith or Dawn before, so I was a bit nervous, but it was a good bit of fun in the end.

So glad you liked the story.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from (Recent Donor)etznab
Cool story. A nice way to intertwine the different shows.
Comments from author:
Well, crud, I typed up a response a day or so ago, but it didn't get posted. Anyway, thanks so much for the feedback. I was hoping to find a slightly original way to cross the two 'verses. So glad you liked it.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from IrisOwens
Excellent story! Characterizations were right on. I liked the Faith/Wesley pairing; they were sweet together. I also liked how Dawn & Daniel 'recognized' each other! Very cute!
Comments from author:
Thank you! At first I was unsure of how to write Faith/Wesley. I imagine that they got together very gradually, starting with mutual respect and a tentative friendship. Wes didn't just say "I'm over the whole torture thing, let's snuggle." I never alluded to it in the fic, but I picture Wes being more assertive in *ahem* certain aspects of their relationship. Oh dear, I've never been tempted to write a PWP, but that's a scene I would love to read.
The Dawn/Daniel thing actually helped me find a way to tie the fic together. I initially set the fic pre-Meridian, but then I realized that it would be cool to have that couple share a glowy past.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from Jill
The first part was excellent but the ending just seemed rushed.
Comments from author:
Thanks, and truthfully, I was a bit rushed at the end. I really only had about two weeks to write, instead of the full month, because I was out of town for a while. If I had the time or inclination, I would go back and actually write the conversation with Hammond (as opposed to summimg it up in a paragraph). Or maybe I would have had him come to Scotland to rescue his wayward team. I might also try to lay in a few hints of the Dawn/Daniel attraction, but I didn't want too much of that. Prisoners that get the hots for their captors is both a bit of a cliche, and kinda creepy - Stockholm Syndrome and all that. I just fell back on the subtle insinuation that Oma orchestrated the whole thing.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from Ash
Eee! I loved it, I loved it! ^_^ I gotta say, I loved this. The whole interaction with everyone was great. I think I got off good with such a talented writer for my assignment. ^^ Though I love most things with this much Faith and Dawn.
Comments from author:
Thank you! What a wonderful compliment. I'm so glad you liked it.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from Jennzabell
Okay, that was awesome! I wouldn't believe you were new to crossing Buffy with Stargate if you didn't say so. I also liked the Dawn and Faith, which is even more impressive in that you didn't feel comfortable writing it. I hope you expand it into a series. I don't watch Stargate, but I like the fic meshing it with BtVS, so I'm less sure about that characterization as far as show canon goes, but they all seemed very 'on' to me. Please write more on this - I'd love to know how Wes and Faith hooked up, how Dawn and Daniel turn out, what the tentacle thing was about, and who wins when Faith and Teal'c spar. And what do Buffy and Giles make of this whole deal?
Comments from author:
Thank you! I wish I could promise that there will be more, but I'm not planning on continuing this fic at the present time. I just graduated, and I'm spending most of my time looking for a job. Plus, I have a WIP that has been stalled for quite a while. So, I'll try to answer some of your questions. I imagined that Faith stayed on to help organize all the little slayers after Chosen. Wes didn't take the offer to have a shiny new office at Wolfram and Hart, and he joined Giles in re-forming the Watcher's Council. I hope that Daniel and Dawn live happily ever after. They had Oma Desala for a matchmaker, and she's one of a race of beings (the Ancients)that are sort of all-powerful. (Except they choose not to exercise that power - whatever.) Daniel was briefly one of the Ancients. That's when he was all glowy and tentacle-having. Who would win in a fight between Faith and Teal'c. I don't know. I might have to give the edge to Faith, but I'd love to see that scenario.

Review of chapter "Intergalactic Yenta" from immortalwizardelffan
That's funny, I love the banter between the Scobs and SG-1. I always thought those two groups would get along well.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to bring the funny very well.
