Review of chapter "Chapter 24: To Old Friends and New Friends...Maybe" from DieselDriver
Review:
Grrrr. I really dislike indeterminate endings. That's why I will NEVER watch Inception again.


Did I mention GRRRRR!

Review of chapter "Chapter 15: The Key of the Matter" from DieselDriver
Review:
Ok, apparently the key to the matter is the soul and how to copy it. Something Loki did when making Jon and something the monks did in creating Dawn, allowed them to have souls of their own. Something the Asgard are doing in their own reproduction cloning is not allowing the clones to have souls. Question becomes, what is different between the normal cloning and the one that makes non-viable clones?

Review of chapter "Chapter 14: What's in a Clone" from DieselDriver
Review:
OMG!!! ROFLMAO! Obviously it's why you needed Dawn to be there. Ok, we're up to needing 5. Only 3 extra players now.

Review of chapter "Chapter 13: Back to School" from DieselDriver
Review:
I really hope that you can pull a rabbit out of that hat. Perhaps something along the lines of the Asgaard only needing to gain the genetic "Template" of the needed gene sequence so they can translate that into their own genetic code. That would be the ideal situation. Or maybe not. Perhaps the ideal would be to figure out a retro virus type implantable analog for themselves to re-write their own genetic code and allow them to "fix" their bodies so they can go back to natural child birthing.

(maybe that would be "unfix" LOL, since they've essentially been neutered)

Review of chapter "Chapter 10: It's All About Potential" from DieselDriver
Review:
Per your a/n note: yes, to many people from slayer central in the mountain. Who's minding the store back on the home front? Four would have been a much better number to transport and much easier on Willow. Giles, Buffy, Willow and Faith are really the only ones who need to be there. Xander is surely going to be needing to do a lot of catch up maintenance and repair when he gets back...

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Getting to Know You" from DieselDriver
Review:
Ah, math mistake. 200 if the whole population is considered but only about half of that is women so it's actually closer to 100 to maybe 150 total individuals.

Review of chapter "Hacker vs Hacker" from DieselDriver
Review:
Ok, I made it to chapter 5 before I found myself able to force myself to stop and write a review. Mainly because I got to wondering about the ratio of population of the world to slayers possible. Taking 30 million as the number to find one slayer and a world population of 6 billion that only makes 200 slayers worldwide. Still, you would think that with that many scattered around and the Cleveland house having 20 or 30 at the most, there would be many news reports of feats of unusual strength or exceptionally fast moving women. Olympic tryouts would never be the same and tennis? How about 160 mph service? ACE!!! Would the ball or racket survive?

Review of chapter "In the Genes" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Cool. I'm a bit disappointed that the Old Council's assets were recovered by the Scoobies on their own, before the the end of the fic. The opening segment where they were still having trouble was more promising.

Having two days pass between Willow's hacking and Sam's teleport was a great idea, because it is a great justification for the resources they have assembled and their initial course of action. The chapter of the teleport could be edited to reveal the time lapse though as the reveal of it in the middle of one of Giles' chapter's later on came as a slight shock to me.

Nice series of events. The Golem idea is an awesome touch. Good use of the Nox - I'm glad Tara being Immortal didn't change her in more noticeable ways.

Definitely original, the reason Buffy was tracked down.

Cliches that I was slightly disappointed by:
--Willow able to teleport groups to a place she hadn't seen before. I guess justified by her having her magic amped up, Sam being present, and the fact it was the place she'd taken Sam from in the first place.
--Willow hacking the SGC. Yes, she used magic to do it, but...
--Buffy being the targeted Slayer. She is the most logical choice of the canon Slayers to be listed in a government database, but I think an original activated potential would have been a lot cooler, incidentally also posing more of a challenge for Willow to notice/block searches she'd be less likely to guard against.

You handled Jack well. He likes Thor but he'd naturally be suspicious of at least an unmet portion of the Asgard. I think it's because he knows what it took for Thor to understand humans as well as he does, so he'd feel that other Asgard who've never met a human in their lives would be... something. There's an idea I'm leaning towards such as 'less likely to feel empathy' but that's not quite it.

Yeah, explaining that Tara had, to the best of Willow's ability to tell, died when she was shot would go a long ways to clearing things up with Jack.

Separating Willow's 'ability to control magic' from her 'magic addiction' while still having both exist is a fascinating idea I haven't come across.

I think that they were a bit too free with the information that Dawn, at least at one time, had the ability to open a specific dimensional portal. However, good job with not saying that multiple dimensions had been affected, to the point of potential collapse. I think that Willow is onto something with the blockage of the Slayer activation and Dawn's appearance. I, personally, given the restriction here that she's an actual clone, would tie those together so that rather than an added glamour the genes affecting physical growth were magically prevented from interacting with proteins and other genetic building blocks in the way that they normally would have.

Yep, definitely a long and thought-provoking story.

I, personally, doubt that, in a full-crossover of the two shows, Ascension is a smart idea. However, given the restructured canon of this 'verse, I hope it works out for the groups there :)

A fascinating twist on the usual story line.

Review of chapter "Chapter 24: To Old Friends and New Friends...Maybe" from Bluejello
Review:
Interesting take not only on who/what Slayers really are, but the meeting of Scoobies and SGC. Very nicely handled, some revelations on both sides, but politics getting in the way.

Review of chapter "Chapter 24: To Old Friends and New Friends...Maybe" from BarbarossaRotbart
Review:
Overall a good story, but the hidden Highlander crossover was completely unnecessary because it has no impact to the story. IMHO it would have been much better if you would have found a different explanation for Tara being alive again.
