Review of chapter "Chapt 21: Rodents for the Duration" from eset
It's past 5 am, and I've been reading the entire Father Goose series almost nonstop for three days. I haven't had a fic grip me like this in years.
I love the characters, I love the story, and despite the fact that It's been two years since last posting I hope you'll continue. Your stories have been so intricate, so well thought out, and so rich with characters and detail, characters from old stories coming back for cameos (I squealed when Titties--*ahem*, TNT--teleported in in leopard print swimsuits).
You captured Sam's frustration with magic masterfully, and although a part of me does wish for a Sam/Jack pairing, your treatment of it is a lot more true to the characters, and more well-developed, then anyfic where they find a loophole and suddenly everything's wonderful.
I love Irina as matchmaker, and Lorne's reaction to--I'm assuming Daniel's ascension. I wonder what he saw for Jack, or for Teal'c. Will they be able to save Shad, or will she succumb? What's the connection between Will and Shad? It feels like there's more there than just Geb being the name of a god of the earth.
What happens if Carter tries a spell? Will Daniel and/or Dawn get kidnapped? I don't see Daniel giving up the Stargate for the Council, but can Carter go back to her mountain and leave her questions unanswered? Or will she come to accept that it's unexplainable by physics? Or will she find an answer that satisfies her?
I like the debate you have going between the need for secrecy and the need for openness. I also love Andrew's way of getting the masses the information necessary to protect themselves, defend themselves, and get help from the supernatural without shoving it down anyone's throats. Sure, it's just a game, play it, be happy, but if something jumps you in an alley at midnight, you'll know who to call.
I really hope you continue this. It's amazing and wonderful, and I promise to read/review the Vegas one in the next couple days. But, for now, sleep.

Review of chapter "Chapt 21: Rodents for the Duration" from JimmX
Love your Father Goose series. I started it mostly because of my love of the movie Father Goose, but even not knowing most of the cross series (Alias, SVU, Gilmore Girls), I still enjoy it a lot.
Thanks for sharing it all with us.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Mozambique" from leelaa
(Jack O'Neill's POV:-)
Or of course it could all be the innocent abode of an eccentric spinster lady, raising a few sheep on the old homestead and minding her own business. The defensive design left over from the bad old days of outlaws and Indians.
So he could take a squad and hump it overland and go in the back, he could take that same squad and a half dozen big black Air Force SUV’s and arrive all scattering gravel and big guns waving … and in either case probably end up slinking away in embarrassment while two little old ladies shook their heads and started planning the stories they would tell, and from then on down at Hattie’s Diner he’d be “that big Air Force officer who took a squadron up the hill one fine Sunday afternoon and captured Miss Letty and thirty-five sheep.”

Review of chapter "Chapter 17: To Buffy or Not to Buffy" from vitruvian
Love this series overall. However, I do have to question whether the anti-secrecy, 'we don't keep demons and vampires secret because the info's all out there for those ready to believe' attitude in Secrets is meant to be consistent *at all* with obliviating the SVU at the end of the first story.

Review of chapter "Chapt 19:The World According to Carter, Pt. IX-XIV" from lucyferr
“You think I should just … accept it? At face value?” Sam answered, welcoming the conversations’ turn away from her love life or lack thereof.
“No, not at all… quite the opposite. But surely you’ve seen too much by now to simply dismiss it either. I’ll be terribly disappointed if you’re not at least curious. In fact, I must admit when I read your file I felt a slight surge of hope. If anyone can find a scientific explanation for magic, it’s you, Major,” Derevko said earnestly.
Now that's more like it!
“Georgianne Travers, but please, call me George,” the young woman said, smiling, her grip firm as they shook, “I’m very pleased to meet you, Major. I suspect we have a lot in common besides fathers who wanted sons.”
ah! another potential sam bff! yay!
ps - you sure her surname is Travers and not, say, Kirrin?
A wimoweh, a-wimoweh a-wimoweh, a wimoweh
"Wimoweh" is (according to the Wikipedia) a mishearing of the original song's chorus of 'uyimbube' (meaning "you're a lion").
He particularly wants to talk to you, Daniel. Though he did say he would appreciate it if you wouldn’t so much as hum for the next year or two….”
ouch - if this is about Daniel's dying habit, Lorne must really have banned Buffy from humming ages ago
And Teal’c all the time with a look in his eye that made Sam wonder sometimes if he didn’t understand perfectly well but enjoyed watching Jack and Daniel struggle to explain the Tau-ri’s less dignified predilections in decorous terms.
“I don’t know Dwayne. I don’t think it would work. I can’t see leaving Cleveland and I know you love LA….”
“I’m copping a feel, you carnivorous twit, not proposing marriage.”
Derevko was right, there was an emptiness, an incompleteness. … but so be it. There was honor instead. There was purpose.
No one had it all.
quite. But really, why not give Sam her own non-reg-breaking soulmate? Not a washed up old friend that she has no interests in common with. Sure, they'd have wonderful monkey sex for a month, but then what would they talk about? Hockey? Motorbike engine efficiency? Enough with this Jack/Sam nonsense, please.

Review of chapter "Chapt 18:The World According to Carter, Pt. I-VIII" from lucyferr
Major Sam has major daddy issues, yeah? And a problem with authority. She likes it.
Quite. No wonder Tapping created Helen Magnus as her next persona. And who doesn't prefer Helen to Sam?
She just hadn’t found a connection, a comfort zone with any of them. Perhaps it was the age difference … startling to remember that neither Buffy nor Harris had reached thirty yet.
ouch... where's Winifred when you need her?
She had always been pretty enough, boys came to talk to her, but soon they went away with their eyes glazed…
splain to me again why everyone thinks Sam has the hots for Jack? Coz he totally glazes multiple greenhouses with his gaze when she talks about what she likes to talk about
…. the pair chattering away obliviously as Sam stared. Surely no one could care that much about shoes.
Sam…. Wore boots. Oh she had a couple pairs of regulation dress pumps in her closet, a pair of cross-trainers, flats for around the house. But Sam wore boots.
I'm on Sam's side with this one. Never understood the whole shoes thing. And combat boots be sexier than stilettos any day. Maybe it's an American thing? People from other cultures look at stilletos the way Americans look at corsets, y'know
Sam had been Alpha female in her world for a long time now, and not just because she been pretty much the only female at her level.... it was a little disconcerting to suddenly feel like the weakest woman in the room.
… then it hit her. The Red Witch was missing.
So when you gonna have mercy on Sam and give her a BFF? Irina looked promising for a moment...

Review of chapter "Chapter 17: To Buffy or Not to Buffy" from lucyferr
“You like to fish without catching any fish?” she asked.
“Yes… It’s just that its nice to just ….”
“No, no, I get it. Lots of times I go shopping without buying anything….”
Now I don’t know exactly what that means, but sometimes the girls say things like, ‘Let’s go buffy the bastards,’ and they never say , ‘Let’s go get buffied,’ so draw your own conclusions.
“this is why your government’s insane insistence on secrecy is so appallingly short-sighted. Not to take anything way from your Major Carter but by now there would be hundreds, thousands of researchers studying the goa’uld, talking to one another… every major university on the planet would have a goa’uld studies program…… That’s how science progresses…For god’s sake, do they not understand that you don’t have to steal advanced technology? …. Or wait to have it given? Tell the bright folks at MIT or Oxford or Stanford or even the bloody group of eight that you know for certain something can be done and they’ll bloody well figure out how. … six billion people on the planet, many of them with brains, a few of them with quite good brains, we should bloody well use them …..
I have no doubt the brilliant minds at number 10 would have done the same if they’d found the gate first. ….. “ he fell silent.
ditto - not that Giles is a fan of the British government
Would you willingly become a jaffa if it meant you doubled your lifespan? What price would you pay? Suddenly the gao’uld are not an alien enemy but a valued commodity …. Well, I assume you can think of as many nightmare scenarios as I can....I have no problem choosing "us” over “them.” But the hosts and the jaffa are human and if we allow our fear of the Other or our greed for power to drive us to committing horrors of one kind or another on our own
tip of da berg
The van stopped just as the front door burst open, three girls came running out past it to, to Jack’s utter lack of surprise, leap into Harris’ arms as two more women, older but still stunning, appeared in the doorway behind them, smiling in welcome.
Maybe I should get an eyepatch, Jack thought.
Maybe he should just quit SG1 so he can date Sam. (Not that he's good enough for her or anything, but j/s does seem to be the underlying assumption here)
Karaoke night, eh? I'd love to hear Sam singing Ani di Franco's "Untouchable Face"
