Review of chapter "Chapter One" from oldgirllost
I thought this was delightful and would be very happy for a "When John finally met Willow" follow-up or a "When Mackay met Willow" prequel. Either done in this vein should be a hoot!
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. I'll see what I can do about, hmm, probably a prequel. Although probably not soon, too many other stories floating around in my head.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Scrappychic
Hahaha! So Funny.

I'd love to see a follow up where they make it back to Earth and John tries to convince Rodney to introduce him...

Whether or not he gets a chance to (ie: if she's busy with stopping world endage or not) would determine if he's forevermore teased about his 'immaginary friend Willow'... snicker.
Comments from author:
Oh, that would be awesome! Either busy with world-savage or maybe just finished with it and completely wiped out, so unable to demonstrate any magic. So John can tease Rodney, and Rodney can be all defensive:

"I'll admit she's a real person but she's not the witch you described to me. Are you that other Willow isn't just your imaginary friends? She's the one who can do magic?" John teased. Much to his delight, it got Rodney all huffy.

"It's magic, not science. I always told you it was wishy-washy. Science can be duplicated by anyone at anytime. Magic is all sometimes and only by some people. It's a stupid field of study."

"You're just jealous that you can't do magic," John taunted, remembering their first conversation about magic.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from amberrhianon
Oh, I love it. I really want to see more about this plot, so very refreshing and interesting. Very amusing and I read It more than once.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the great review! I only realized as I was re-reading this that I was foretelling a possible visit with Willow on Earth. So maybe a sequel sometime or another.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Moderator)acs
Okay... that was very refreshing. And amusing.

It's nice to see a Stargate scientist type in a crossover who believes in magic. I do have to wonder how he originally met her though.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm not sure how they met but my current idea is that Willow's skills with computers were good without magic, so that with magic they are good enough to catch McKay's attention. "Why is the hacker's holy grail, the only current un-hackable database known to man, the firewalls protecting an all-girls gradeschool in Cleveland?"

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from raindroproses
So why do I love this fic? Let's see...

McKay's voice--his arrogance, condescension, and penchant for melodrama are all spot-on. Not to mention the fact that he disdains Willow's claim of computer science as a "real" science, all the while ignoring the fact that she could kill him with her brain.

Also! Most fics with McKay (or Sam Carter, or any scientist-type, for that matter) usually have him as a hard-core skeptic. It's refreshing to see McKay saying "Of COURSE magic is real! What are you, stupid?"

And Sheppard's confusion and wait-and-see attitude are just so very him.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the great review! I got so tired of the standard skeptical scientist that I decided there needed to be a story showing the other side of science: the side that looks at the evidence and throws out any theories that don't match it. If there's evidence of magic, then any theory that doesn't support that evidence is clearly false. Plus, McKay is an absolute delight to write.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Keshkreature
*cackle* That really very cute. McKay making the argument for magic was great, as was his jealousy rub with Sheppard!
Comments from author:
Thanks! McKay is really fun to write, a mixture of adult scientist and five-year-old. And I think Sheppard enjoys the teasing.
