Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from Oseng
Review:
This a very good story and I am looking forward to the next chapter.

However I do have to agree with Espinosaca's review to a certain degree. Considering everything they took down the SGC Teams, who are supposed to be pretty much the best of the best soldiers, way too easily it seemed. It might just be the way you wrote that section but I just can't see an SG team going down that easily.

And I also have to agree with him about the British turning Xander over to face charges of theft. Depending on where you put this in the Stargate Time-line the United Kingdom is involved in the Stargate program and probably would not be very happy to find out that the Slayers are stealing G'ouald Artifacts.
Comments from author:
I don't know, Daniel only thought it was a Goa'uld artifact, it might not be. There are plenty of relics from Buffyverse spread around the world.

And I think it depends greatly on who has greater sway. The Watcher's Council has been around for centuries and was based in London, I think it's quite likely that the UK will lean in their favor.

As for Slayers VS soliders, I think that season 4 made it pretty clear. Yes, SGC teams are very good, but they just aren't perfect and they aren't superpowered, which does make a difference, especially if the Slayers have alternate training to the usual Slayer methods.

Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from espinosaca
Review:
The first part makes sense. The second part doesn't. At this point Earth has more or less come together in terms of fighting aliens so I doubt the Brits would be unwilling to turn Xander over to the IOA for theft. Also if all of Xander's team is made up of those unwilling to fight I doubt they could take on SG teams. Not to make light of slayers but the soldiers making up the SG teams are some of the best in the world, and they do fight Jaffa regularly. Jaffa are a lot stronger than normal men as Teal'c has shown continuously. Also equipment wise I think the SG teams are better geared for fights, I doubt Jack lets Daniel go anywhere for digs anymore without an entire platoon of soldiers after what happened in Honduras...
Comments from author:
I have to disagree. Yes, SGC personnel have experience in fighting Jaffa, but rarely hand to hand, almost always at a good distance with firearms. Jaffa are also not known for their stealth. They run around in large groups in armor that clangs more than my old radiator. In season 4, Buffy evaded a hyped up military team for 45 minutes before taking them out in less than a minute. She was also wearing a white coat the entire time. Not all slayers on Xander's team are against violence.

Xander being Xander, I imagine him making sure his team is outfitted with a wide array of gear. He's show time and time that he's not against working with alternate tools. He is the one who procured the bazooka against the Judge and figured out how to make the Mayor explode. I think it's reasonable to see a team of Slayers easily defeating a small group of soldiers.

And while Jack might like Danny to bring along a platoon, the US military would probably see that as excessive. What Jack wants and what Jack gets are two very different things.

I do, however, appreciate your candor. I do like criticism, even if I don't always agree with it. Thanks for reading and the review.

Review:
awesome . . . please continue . . . I want to see Xander meet Jack . . .
Comments from author:
Some time, sure, but not right off the bat, because it's more fun to prolong the mystery.

I'm glad you like it so far. I'm hoping to expand on it with collaborators.

Review:
Poor, poor Dr. Jackson, always being one-upped by the nefarious Mr. Harris.

I'm highly amused, and will be on the lookout for updates.
Comments from author:
There might be, but not for a little while. I've got a few projects that need more attention and I'd really like to wait to continue this with other people. I think it will be more fun.

Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from Ghostrider
Review:
First, the first part, doesn't seem to flow too well, imho. The whole 'fray-adjacent' part doesn't mesh together well. Thing is, I can't really see how to change it.

Now, the latter part...

....

....

....

*sound of body falling to the floor, accompanied by wheezing laughter*

Ahem! Yes, well, can I say AWESOME?

Poor Danny, going up against Indiana Harris. What we now need, is a scene where this is reversed. Danny and Co taking something from Xander and he's going after them and takes it back. Preferably, using the whip to get out of their clutches. And Jack saying 'No fair! I want a whip like that!'
Comments from author:
I'll be honest, I just don't see Xander really using a whip more than once. Oh, I imagine he'll try, but that's a difficult thing to master. He will use everything else at his disposal.

As for the first part, I don't know. I think there's a certain amount of "you're just human" that will always be around, at least this way he gets to do something.

Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from KzintiKiller
Review:
ROTFLMAO! Halfway through I thought Giles was pitching "Larry Croft". I love it! The thing is, is Xander Indy? Or his nemesis? Let's hope he doesn't steal a canopic jar with a sleeping snake in it.

KK
Comments from author:
I suppose it could be a combination of the two. Xander isn't Indy, he just gets to pretend he is. It's his basic job, going out, finding relics and artifacts, and returning them to the council for use and occasional disposal.

And you never know what he is going to find...

Review:
Oh. Oh wow. My sides hurt. Xander quoting Raiders of the Lost Ark and wearing the hat and running all over the globe with Slayers and... Wow. Please write more.
Comments from author:
I'm glad people are amused by it. I do hope to have more, but I don't know when I'll be able to get more. One of the many reasons I'd like to collaborate with someone.

Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from nightowl
Review:
LOL I can so see that happening. I imagine tho that if daniel gets too frustrated and jack gets fed up with danny's whining they may try and recrut zander. or they could find writings/people who relate to the slayer mythos. great job. so many ways to turn I can't wait to see whats around the bend.
Comments from author:
Actually, I was really hoping to keep the two worlds separate as much as possible. I'd prefer to keep this from becoming a "superfriends" kind of fic. Maybe the occasional team up, but generally adversarial.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from LallaBelle
Review:
Poor poor Daniel. If it's not Jack trying to prevent him from going to Atlantis, it's Xander taking away the shiny artifacts he's just found.

I think it's definitely got potential.
Comments from author:
I'm glad people like the idea. Of course, that's all it is right now. I'm hoping to expand on it, but I don't have the time right now, which is, of course, part of the reason I'd like to collaborate.

Review of chapter "Nothing you can possess... Part 1?" from Shulik
Review:
What were you thinking in terms of collaboration??
Comments from author:
I think I answered in your last review, but people coming together to work on the larger story. Swapping ideas, brainstorming and perhaps alternating chapters. It's gotta be fun.
