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 :)

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.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4: A Balancing Act" from BarbarossaRotbart
Review:
One simple question: Was it really necessary that you add a second crossover with Highlander to the story?

Review of chapter "Chapter 24: To Old Friends and New Friends...Maybe" from Olivia
Review:
I quite like your ideas about the Asgard/Nox and the possibles solutions. But it was a seriously tedious fic to read, it just keep dragging on and on.

I had to force myself to keep reading the paragraphs, when I would normally just abandon a story, but I really wanted to know where you where going with the plot. I reach the end, but I can not help but feel that it truly was not over.

Review of chapter "Chapter 24: To Old Friends and New Friends...Maybe" from Martin
Review:
That wasn't an ending. That was a story that was just about to start on the climax. Then it stops. Or to put it simply its not a story yet. Not that there need be any action in the climax, in fact I could sort of picture a simple ending that was hinted at. Then a small epilogue would complete it.

I wonder what the Nox's reaction would be to vamps and demons... and what a vamp or demon's reaction would be to a Nox
