Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from angyelsglaive
I really like this concept. Most people can't write Weber, so I don't tend to read HH fanfiction, but plucking a single character out through a YAHF...

Well thought out, you're tackling the obvious immediate issues, and I love Cordy being a secret sci-fi fan. Honor is just the sort of person she would identify with, as well, smart, capable, dangerous, and sexy. It should go without saying, but good work remembering that Honor Among Enemies was about the most current book at the time, that's one of those little things that a lot of fanfic authors would miss. After the immediate danger of the adoption bond is solved, they'll still have to deal with the Samantha issue. Let's see more of this.
Comments from author:
Thank you!!! And yes, I do realize that the Samantha issue is going to be a problem (what in this fic hasn't been *grin*). I'm still trying to figure out how to make things happen without streching the boundaries TOO far :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from dialNforNinja
This is fun. I'll be checking back to it, so please keep it up! Pity you didn't include Samantha as well, but perhaps some way can be found to animate/bring more treecats to Earth so he's not so alone.

Tangentially related: perhaps a telepathy spell?
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! And for the idea :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from TaraLi
A twist I really didn't expect - not the person retaining their costume status - but a part of her costume staying alive.

And you picked an excellent one - and yes, you couldn't just plop Nimitz down in the middle of Sunnydale to be all cute and everything. However, I can see Cordelia *being* the most like Honor Harrington, and it'll make things very interesting for them all.

I just feel sooo sorry for poor Nimitz.
Comments from author:
I promise, I'll try very hard to not be meaner to him than I already have! I like him too much myself to keep him miserable. And I actually do have a reason for him to still be there when everything else went away...but I'll leave it for Willow to figure it out later ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from speakerforthesilent
Neat. Once Nimitz gets over the whole time travel thing, I can see him convincing Cordelia to be somewhat different than her usual bratty self. And I can only imagine what Weber calls a "furry six-limbed buzz saw" could do to a vamp. Keep up the good work!
Comments from author:
Thank you! I do think that Nimitz will be a good influence on Cordy :-) And yes, he is rather impressive in might take a bit of effort to get to the heart or decapitate a vamp, but he's the 'cat for the job!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from martelcris
In the Dale of the sun
There are news that bring us fun
Six limbs, long fur and a tale to tell
drive Cordy out of the B***h shell
Oh gentle Writer don't stop your pen
till you haven't write all the what the why and when

So before you cringe in pain
I'll stop writing bad rhymes and this game

sorry for this crap but I can't stop myself :-)
Comments from author:
Hey, it's better than most poetry I can come up with ;-)
Thank you very much!!!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)Skyefather
love the story so far plz don't forget that Nimitz's favorite meal (besides celery) is rabbit (bunny) so when Anya shows up she'll love Stinker cause he eat's the evil bunny's
and he's always so neat as he eat's in a highchair with a bib and all
love what your doing with Queen C

he he he he he
future plot bunny

Comments from author:
So THAT'S how I might be able to control future plot bunny uprisings...just sic Nimitz on 'em! Thanks for the idea & the review :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from zzxxphaser
Question, have you even read the honor harrington series. Cause if you did you would know that one pistol round (in a magazine of at least 200) is near or completely lethal if you are hit anywhere and have two types of ammo; explosive and non-explosive.

Hit in the hand, your arms blown off.
Hit in the torso, blown in half.

So as you can see that crap about a gun not affecting anything is total bullshit, come up with a good reason so the story flows better case that just gouged out my eye.
Comments from author:
I would thank you if this were constructive criticism, but since it isn’t I don’t feel compelled.
I have to turn your own question back at you: Have you read the series? Yes, the pulsers carried by most of the contemporary characters, including her armsmen, do have that kind of capability, however Honor typically does not carry one – she usually carries a .45 Colt M1911 semi-automatic. And while this will still blow a rather large hole in things, if it would work against most of what inhabits the Whedon-verse I suspect that Buffy would already be carrying one since it is available in the here-and-now - although that wouldn’t make for as good a show… Also, Cordelia went as Honor in full dress uniform –can you really see Cordelia doing any less?- which is why she had a sword on her at all; and while I don’t recall any confirmation one way or the other from the books, I imagine that for formal occasions Honor would be carrying one or both of her dueling pistols that she used to kill both Denver Summervale and Pavel Young (and this is after all MY imagination)
Of course, all this is completely beside the point. If my story has caused you to gouge out an eye, you might be better off not reading any further :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Satori
T'was a treecat on sunnydale's street's
That drew mine eye to this tale
Rest assured your story more than meets
The highest expectations; I hail
You for your wonderful dialog
That captures the essence of Cordy
Not a monotonous line to slog
through. I love this story.
Comments from author:
Wow! Warm fuzzies and good rhymes - what more can a girl ask for?
Thanks so much!!!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from CPTSkip
Yay! Thanks for the fast update. Poor Nimitz. If they can't get him back to his universe can they at least bring him a girlfriend? I hope Cordy retains some of Honor's combat skills. I'd love to see her kick Buffy's stylish butt at least one time. Lol!
Comments from author:
That would be a fun fight...don't get me wrong, I LIKE Buffy but she does occasionally need to be taken down a peg or two. Of course, on that note Cordelia needs to be taken down a couple of dozen pegs ;-)
Thanks for the review! (and I'll see what I can do about making Nimitz happier!!!)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Chan
Well what a bombshell to drop on the resident Sunnydale weird experts. for some reason the visual I have of their expressions is *really* funny.

Really liking that Nimitz is about, really curious if his hunter instincts will bond him with Buffy
Comments from author:
Thanks for reviewing! I'm not going to say outright, but you can probably guess from the story so far what my plans are for Nimitz's future :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from AllenPitt
hm...Buffy IS right, it's from Halloween, and Cordelia is very different...
* If you want to get weird, have Xander's Soldier knowledge be from Honor's universe, too... ok, that's reaching a bit...
as far as sending Nimitz back and/or summoning more---maybe in a few years willow could do that--by s6 she could do pretty much anything---....but I doubt they'll manage it now...
The best they can hope for is, Nimitz 'bonds' to Cordelia or someone else. Plus I bet Willow at least will read the HH novels...
Of course this is sunnydale, so everybody will just think Cordelia has a big cat....
Comments from author:
Thanks for the idea, but you're right - that would be stretching a bit too far :-) On the other hand...Cordy's persona DOES outrank Xander's persona *snicker*
Don't worry, I like Nimitz too much to do anything too mean to him (meaner than I've already done, that it).
Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)Shadowthesilly
I adore this. When I 1st saw it I thought you were going with Bujold and Cordelia Vorkosigan nee Naismith. But I think I like this much better.
Comments from author:
To my great shame I haven't actually read the Vorkosigan Saga, although several of my friends have urged me to...but it IS on my "To Do" list :-)
Glad you are enjoying so far and thank you for the review!!!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from JoeB
Thanks for posting so quick. Nice chapter.

It might be fun if Cordiela kept some of Honor's Empathy, on the other hand, I don't know if Cordy could handle what people really think of her.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review so quick ;-) I'm not sure how much of Honor Cordy will keep, but having Nimitz around will keep it fresher than everyone else's borrowed memories!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from YademosEbyam
I've always thought Cordy was underused in fanfic, so seeing her as the primary in this story is a plus. Just don't change her character too much; her biting wit and lack of tact are two of her most interesting features. I wonder if either Xander or Willow will recognize Nimitz for what (and who) he is, thus identifying Cordy's costume. One thing worries me though; unless Nimitz could somehow differentiate between REAL demons and transformed children to apply less-than-lethal force to the latter, the consequences of "Honor's" battle could become very messy.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! I'm going to try very hard to not change her character too much, but as was shown in AtS she does have a nice -even if still not tactful- side when given the chance.
And, well, about the kids? As near as I can tell from the episode, there wouldn't have been a way to differentiate since they were physically changed...and I'm afraid that the kids/demons who attacked Honor and Nimitz are toast. Oopsie?
