Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Lictre
Review:
I was amazed by the concept of a Honor-verse/Buffy fic, and quite enjoyed getting up to date with it, but I have noticed one possible error in the characterization of Honor. She has essentially a photographic memory, which is likely due to the various levels of genetic engineering that had occurred in her family history. With a minimum of effort, were there quotes or references to witchcraft in the Grayson religious works, either the primary books, or the more scholarly books, which she apparently studied with the intention of meeting her responsibilities to the utmost possible extent, she would be able to bring them to memory and quote them, including citing which books and sections they were from.
Comments from author:
My thought on the matter is that the Church of Humanity Unchanged was found long after witchcraft and the supernatural was discounted as being real, hence there probably wasn't anything in the mainline books of the religion. I know that she was diligent in learning her peoples religion, but I doubt she has read everything ever written, which was the point of the statement.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from skychan
Review:
It's unfortunate that these chapters have all been so very short. I would like to have seen more at a time. I think that its absolutely grand that your getting the sunydale crew 'attacked' by treecats. Lucky Willow.

But all in all it just is a bit too short and I'm still a little worried about the matter of scale for this story. I do love the Honor Harrington setting though, keep it up.
Comments from author:
I'll do my best, I tend to keep chapters around two thousand words plus or minus 10 percent. I'm not planning on having the Scoobies adopted en mass, I'll be cherry picking who gets adopted. It was Vi, not Willow who was adopted.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from liadenfan
Review:
First, I want to thank you for coming back to this story. I believe I've read all the BtVS/Honorverse stories available on "TtH" and yours has been the most enjoyable so far.

Still, I have to correct a couple of errors you've made. In Chapter 2, you have Earl Whitehaven telling Buffy that there are "probably tens of thousands" of human settled worlds. However, during Honor's & Mike's baseball discussion in the first chapter of "War of Honor," Mike states there are only about 1700 human inhabited worlds. Also, in Chapter 8, you have Mercedes Brigham thinking about asking COL Sandra Gibson for advice regarding the Slayers' leadership problems. If you are thinking of the officer who commanded one of Tomas' companies on the second FEARLESS during "The Honor of the Queen," her name is Susan Hibson. She also appeared in "Honor Among Enemies" and had a cameo as the limping sword bearer during Honor's funeral procession in "Echoes of Honor."

I'm not sure where you're going with the "Champion" position, since the only individual designated as such in BtVS/AtS is Angel, if I remember correctly. I'm also not sure why you've picked as old an individual as ADM Givens to be a slayer. Other than to throw a monkey wrench into the Manty's command structure by having her be relieved as Chief of ONI (2nd Space Lord). Same with Tom Caparelli as 1st Space Lord. However, based on what you've written so far, I am very interested in the plot you're laying out.

If I might make a few suggestions as to who future slayers might or might not be, limit your use of close relatives of ruling/prominent families (i.e., no Wintons, Mayhews, Ramirezes, Andermans or Detweilers). I'm assuming ADM Givens is the Manticoran Slayer, so how about Chief Harkness' wife as the Gryphonian Slayer. I feel sure, since the care and feeding of junior officers is one of the jobs of senior NCO's, that Sergeant Major Iris Harkness (nee Babcock), RMMC could easily handle both small unit tactics and leadership training. My only other slayer suggestion is that the one from Montana be a member of the Montanan SDF CO's family (though her first name need not be Echo).

I am also looking forward to the scene where the Masadan Slayer is identified and picked up. Visions of a company or two of Royal Marines in powered battle armor making a combat assault to escort her off planet come to mind. In addition, I'm curious as to the gender of both the Masadan & Greyson Champions.

Finally, please base Slayer Training on Sphinx and give each Slayer a Companion. Again, thanks for the update and I look forward to more Buffy & Co. adventures in the Honorverse.

Thanks for the review, and thanks for correcting me on Susan Hibson, which would explain why I couldn't find Sandra Gibson when I went through the various Honor Sites trying to confirm her name, I will be going back and correcting it.

As far as the number of worlds out there, according to the one Honerverse site I checked there are over two thousand worlds in the Solarian Confederation itself, so while I agree White Haven was probably exaggerating the number of worlds, he was giving an absolute worst case.

As far as future slayers and champions, I had this same conversation with another reviewer right when I was starting the story, people, in my opinion read fanfiction because they like the characters from a movie, book or TV show, so while it certainly won't be every Honorverse character that will be chosen for an upgrade, there will be a number of them, there will also be a number of OC's that will be introduced.

Thanks for the input, I hope you enjoy where I take the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from ScorpioP
Review:
I'm glad this story is live again. I look forward to future chapters.
I will say I was surprised -- I thought a treecat would be selected.
Comments from author:
Not just yet, but I do have plans that way.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from war
Review:
that will be useful having someone in the Forestry Service as a Champion.

Hope Faith and Buffy take up the offer of officer training they definitely need it. If Buffy has questions about Grayson hope they think to ask Mercedes or better yet Honor.

Just to sure Vi was the red head who got adopted?

Good story looking forward to your next chapter.
Comments from author:
Yep it was Vi.


Buffy and Faith and all the Slayers will definatly be learning some stuff from the Manticorians, as they will be learning from the Scoobies.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from burmafrdnow
Review:
Strange people would expect Honor to be Sphinx's champion when she was already considered Grayson's Champion; even if that was not mystical.

Please continue this; the only other current HH story has disolved into nothing but a so called relationship fic.
Comments from author:
I've started the next chapter and I am having some problems with a scene between Buffy, Faith and Mercedes Brigham. The story will be continued as soon as I figure out how I want to do this.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from war
Review:
Buffy, as much as she wanted to see what the shops and fashion looked like in her new home, readily agreed.

Should be interesting to see what she makes of formal Manty court dress or for that matter Grayson gowns.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from skychan
Review:
I am heartened to see that this is going on, even if it is a bit of a building chapter, and I'm curious as to the, u"h oh…"
Comments from author:
Everyone was assuming that Honor Harrington was Sphinx's Champion so they were only expecting one cloud.

Glad you are liking it, thanks for the review.
