Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Cateagle
Good wrap-up of this arc while setting up for further arcs or sequels. I do love the way Spike was permanently taken out and the hidden grenade trick was a very nice touch (it's always more fun to do that with enemy personnel than to do that with your own dying/deceased personnel). I can just imagine the last thought in Spike's head was "Oh, shit! They fell for it."

I look forward to further stories detailing exactly how the Scoobies got recompense for their dead and got the First sent back where he came from, if they didn't just completely eliminate him. Methinks the PTB are not going to enjoy any of this, either, but will find themselves powerless against the Imperium's aid and forces.
Comments from author:
Glad t learn you enjoyed the way I wrapped things up. ;-)

And the last thing passing through Spikes mind was the plasma wave from the grenade. ;-)

and the PTB's might end up being a target, too, if they try to meddle with the rescue/liberation efforts. ;-)

Review of chapter "6" from Cateagle
Damn, I love the cross-over characters here (then, again, I'm quite the B5 fan). You're having a lot of fun here and I love the way various relations are developing. I rather suspect the fight on their return to their universe is going to be intense, even with the support they have.
Comments from author:
Yeah, this was a lot of fun to write, but it seems that my muse lost interest in continuing it. At least, for the time being, that is.

And yes, dealing with a well-entrenched enemy is always a problem for any sort of liberation force. ;-(

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from MickyLee
The line/title "the 'Human – Ooglie-Booglie War'", alone, makes this fantastic. I can just see generations of schoolchildren learning of it in History class.
Wouldn't mind seeing more of what happens next, but you have so many GREAT stories in need of update/telling, that I will give you permission to hold off until other stuff has been done. LOL
The prior "permission" was intended as humour BTW... I know someone will read this and not get the joke...there is always at least one. hehe
Comments from author:
Thanks. You can see that the Scoobies had their own personal and 'unique' influence on history. ;-)

Giles is probably banging his head against the main deck door. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Fyrecat
Great story. It could have been greatly expanded, but overall, I quite enjoyed reading it!
Thanks for sharing!
Comments from author:
I had a much longer storyline originally intended for this plot bunyip, but my muse seems to have lost interest in it, so I wrapped it up as best I could.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Dragonwolftiger
Well, that's one way to start (or perhaps continue) a war, eliminate the top ranks first. I look forwards to any more in this series you can write.
Comments from author:
Taking out the brass, first thing - even if it's just on a local level - is one of the best moves you can do when waging a war. With no one to give orders, absolute chaos results and yor troops can sweep in and take control of the area under 'discussion.'

Anything more on this is entirely up to my muse's whims.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from LFW
Darn glad for more of this fic . . . thanks.
It did not feel rushed but how would Spike recognize a look he used to wear when he can not see his own expressions as a vampire?
Maybe 'Spike wondered if that is how he looked before driving a railroad spike into one of his victim's limbs.'

Just a thought.
Thanks for the trip in a fun fic of yesteryear

"You – you're not?" Spike asked, disbelievingly, since he recognized the look on her face as being the same sort of expression he used to wear, back when he was about to drive a railroad spike through one of his victim's limbs.
Comments from author:
You're quite welcome. ;-)

And I meant it in the sense of Spike thinking that it would be the sort of expression he would wear when he was 'having fun.'

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from DarthTenebrus
I could have given the Human-Demon War a more fitting name; other than that, please tell us there will be a sequel detailing the war itself?!

Comments from author:
You have to remember that the Scoobies were involved in naming this particular conflict. That should explain *everything*! ;-)

Review of chapter "3" from raxadian
Can't say I have seen this crossover before.
Comments from author:
Yeah, there aren't many 'Empire of the Ashes' crosses out there with anything, unfortunately. ;-(

Review of chapter "2" from raxadian
Well, the PTB and Wolfram & Hart will have to deal with the First on their own...
Comments from author:
True. At least for the present, they will.

Review of chapter "Heirs of Armageddon" from raxadian
Oh, good start... how about a fic where Xander expected Spike betrayal and had a backup plan to blow everything up?
Comments from author:
That's an interesting idea. I'll it on to my muse, and see what she does with it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from AceDreamer
Nicely done...

If you're looking for 'hooks', you might want to consider the relationship between Faster Than Light travel and Time Travel. FTL really messes-up causation, but I think we can assume that in the Imperium universe this isn't an issue. Now, Dawn-type dimensional travel kicks that up another gear. At least there might be a time travel risk if things go wrong. And, time travel to do with the Buffyverse is very, very, risky... Just about anything could happen...

Whether you see your way to doing any more of this, I'm impressed by how it is already. Good work!
Comments from author:
Yea, FTL and causation currently appear to be non-mixy things, as the Scoobies would say. ;-)

And mixing in Dawn's portal-creation abilities should definitely cause some physicists to start screaming "WTF?!!!!"

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from djhardim
Very good.

The story ended just where it should have. The Scoobies came full circle. I wish that they could have had a little more time to prepare though. Too bad about Fred.

How does this fit in with your contribution to the Code Ragnarok series?
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the story, man.

And the Code Ragnarok story is just one of the many alternate universe possibilities all of us authors can peek in on when our muses inspire us.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from BlueEyedBrigadier
How rather poetically ironic (or ironically poetic) that you made Spike's end ape his canon "death" in the Buffy series finale, getting vaporized at the epicenter of a hand-held superweapon. I personally kind of wish your muse had stuck around long enough to inspire a good torture session by the Scoobies of the First post-Spike's destrituion but what can you do?


Brilliant crossover!
Comments from author:
Thanks for reviewing and commenting.

And I hadn't actually noticed how Spike's death, here, sort of mirrored his canon death in Buffy. That's interesting and completely (consciously) unintentional on my part. Maybe my muse is even sneakier than I thought she is. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Gladius
It lives!!!

Always good to see this one updated, Grey.
Comments from author:
It only lives, it's finished! ;-)

Hopefully, I'll be coming back to this sometime in the future, but I at least finished it and didn't leave it hanging incomplete.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from fanreaderonetwo

I wish you would continue it....

I can imagine the fun and horrors that Imperial planetoids exploring alternate universes and dimensions could find, ranging from 'the world without shrimp' to races and cultures that make the Borg look like harmless fluffy bunnies.

"and is almost three times the size of a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier back home"

Were they given a 200,000 ton Imperial parasite battleship like the one the "kids" had in the 3rd Dahak novel (in addition to the _uses_ of a planetoid to carry the 250,000 troops and their gear) or did you confuse those and the 200,000 ton (which is about 3 times the tonnage of a CVN) repair/construction units with the actual Imperial _planetoids_?
Comments from author:
Thanks for reviewing.

I had much more elaborate plans for this storyline, but my muse seems to have lost all interest in the story, so I'm finishing it up as best I can.

Hopefully, I'll come back to this sometime in the future and continue the further adventures of the biotechnically-enhanced Scooby Pack.

And you''re correct in that I had meant for Xander to be referring to the parasite battleships they'd be using to get to and from the Imperial planetoid. I'll have to correct that.
