Review of chapter "Chapter One" from burmafrdnow
Very good. Ties everything together well. So when can we expect the story to begin?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Thedruid
Good cross. But about the disease thing, you see diseases are very adaptable, maybe not as much as a replicator, but the same principle is there. You hear fears about a 'super-bug' happening nowadays? A virus that is immune to anti-bioticts evolveing becuase of our over-use of it? I always got the impression that the Alteran plauge was a long term disease that by the time people were showing symptons most everyone had it already, and so they coulnd't quartine everyone.
Comments from author:
The problem I have with both the disease adaptation part and the Ancient solution is that it makes no sense. A deadly plague is sweeping the Milky Way. The Ancient solution: "We'll pack everyone we can and we'll run away to another galaxy and then we're safe!"

Wait, what?!?!

And that's canon - the Ancients retreated from this galaxy and then were fine for millions of years. Besides, when a disease develops resistance to a given drug the answer is research to uncover a new medicine that will work. And given that diseases are biologics then using DNA / RNA targeters also would work - abd that's something some real world scientists have been fiddling with for years. We can't do it yet but medical technology as shown by the Ancients should have had no problem with that. You don't develop DNA locked technology (which seems to have been the way they did everything) without understanding targeting specific gene complexs.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from clei
"A safe world to live on. The road to hell and all that," the man said tiredly. "I want a world safe for me to enjoy, and I freely sold my services to the NID to make it happen. I don't work for them anymore, but my ambitions for a safe world keep me working to make sure it does happen. And if that means sending the lot of you to work with people who want me very very dead, then that's what I'll do."

Buffy mulled that over for a few moments as her friends traded glances. "If – and that's a big if – we were to do this, what is the sequence of events you've got planned? Bear in mind, your name is something we'd be dropping early, and that won't help us one bit."

Nice Touch and I can see the Scoobies being inclined to have Maybourne as their contact/go-between with the SGC because of their sense of humor. I can also see Maybourne respecting the Scoobies enough to go to them to plead his case for their help because of who and what they are.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from dreameralways
Interesting concept.
About the note at the end, I never took it as the demons created Earth and I don't recall the Buffy verse ever phrasing it that way, just that it didn't start as a paradise and that the demons RULED Earth. And since the first demons weren't vampires and such but much larger and more powerful entities (like the Old Ones) I always kind of went with the assumption that to them, we were like ants. A lot of the times when you are out and about, you don't notice the ants under your feet. It is well within your power to kill them if you find them and you can wipe out large patches of them either with an exterminator or through fire. But if a group of ants makes a nest (or whatever you call it) in your yard, you don't really notice or care. If you are cruel or just don't like them, call the exterminator, but unless the whole world does it too, you'll probably get more. Now when the demons began to lose purchase on this reality that would be the equivalent of you shrinking (think Honey I Shrunk the Kids). Now the ants are worth your attention, and that would be when the demons "mixed their blood" with the human line creating vampires and other human based demons. I also kind of imagine that the smaller less powerful demons that are more common in the Buffy verse were either later transplants from other dimensions or were damaged by the larger demons if they drew too much attention thus keeping them from completely destroying the humans before they could get far enough to create the slayer. But then again, in the way I make it work in my brain, Sineya would have lived atleast 100,000 years ago. After all, homo sapiens (Archaic) are believed to have existed for approximately half a million years so I don't think we would have been able to increase population enough to have spread and developed cities if it had been something later, like 10,000 years. My 100,000 year theory also works well because it's believed that it was shortly after that that the humans left Africa.
Anyway, that was my really long ramble of how I make the Buffy verse fit known science. When I think of Stargate and Buffy crosses, I usually assume the demons came first and the "evolution of man" that was taking place when the demons were losing purchase was actually the "first" evolution of man, or the development of the ancients. That allows most things to fall into place pretty easily.
OK, I'm done rambling now.
Thanks for writing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Xovervore
Good story. You provide an interesting rationale. I too have been puzzled by this plague issue. Another puzzle is how they could have been beaten by the Wraith. I look forward to when Buffy meets Daniel.
Comments from author:
The Wraith problem was not that they were more advanced than the Ancients - quite the opposite. We learn in the Atlantis episode "Before I Sleep" how the Wraith won: blunty, their warships were less powerful but they had lots and lots of them. Quantity has a quality all its own.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from purrfus
Logic. Its a scary yet intriguing thing.

This vision of events is one I would very much like to see more of.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Great story and an intriguing intro to each other for SG1 and the scoobies. I can just imagine Buffy walking up to the mountain and saying that Harry Maybourne sent her!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Well, I certainly believe Harry would approach Buffy and Co. more than if you had had Kinsey go. That jacka** would try to kill them all and let 'God' sort it out. I don't think I like Kinsey's version of God.
Comments from author:
Yeah, definitely not Kinsey. The guy always had more in common with extremists than anything else in my book; it takes a special kind of person to ignore everyone who really knows about a subject when said subject involves world destruction.

How in the world Kinsey ever managed to justify his attitude in the season 1 finale is something I will never understand.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Vathara
A plausible cross with no magic? I love it! Makes the two match, nicely! :)
Comments from author:
I've been reviewed by the Queen of the Crossover... I can die happy now. ;-)

In all honesty, I did find myself thinking about your stuff more than once as I wrote it out, V. Thanks!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CindyB
Awesome plot!!! I can't wait to see what happens next.

There is a sequel thread that's trying to form, but the bunny is young yet.
Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from VillageOrchid
An almost perfect explanation of how they could be the same world. I think you may have dropped one or two sentences during Daniel's explanation because he seemed to say that he was repeating himself that not all dimensional travelers went insane. It appeared he gave two examples of those who did and no examples of any who did not before he made that statement.
Comments from author:
I'll see if I can clean that up. Thanks for the crit!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MarcusSLazarus
Interesting idea for combining the two genres, I have to admit- particularly the concept of them coming from 'another dimension' without actually making it HELL-; I DEFINITELY wouldn't say no to seeing how this idea develops over time...

Just one thing I'm a bit confused on; what episode with those 'bugs' that you could 'see but not touch' are you talking about?
Comments from author:
Season 6, episode 13: "Sight Unseen": SG1 finds a device that when activated enables people to see otherdimensional life. It starts spreading, they have to stop it, yadda yadda. Stargate wiki link:

It just dovetailed perfectly with one of the underpinnings of the ploy bunny, namely that when something actually steps through that barrier, it gets changed. Permanently.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)drdeth
Great chapter, I hope that you will do a sequel, i always love these crossovers especially when they first meet.
Comments from author:
Trying to work out how to get them together isn't so much the problem; I did have Harry giving the Scoobies a heads-up in the direction of the SGC.

My second version of this plunny was the meeting between the two groups. Writing it, however... let's just say it didn't work. Not having to explain Daniel's discovery might make it easier. We'll see.
