Review of chapter "Tough Love" from IronBaron
Review:
"Would called social services"...
It's hilarious what happens when programmed reactions fail to mesh with unexpected situations. It's not so much of a case of does not compute as much as it's a case of garbage in garbage out.

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from lunalurker
Review:
I enjoyed this tremendously. I see previous reviews already covered the specific high points to compliment you on and what really works in this story, and I'm up way too late, so I will simply add that this is my favorite Buffy / Terminator crossover that I've seen so far, and I desperately hope that it will be continued. I'd love to see those remaining 18 months or so before Cameron has to leave for her primary mission... and then perhaps revisiting how things have changed for both groups (aka show) down the line sometime after that. Geeky, greedy little sap that I am.
Thank you so much for writing. :)

Review of chapter "Gray's Humanity" from lunalurker
Review:
Just found this story, and am reading it for the first time. Enjoying it immensely, and I just had to stop and say that I cheered when Cameron terminated the despicable Warren Mears. Yay!

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from Blackguard
Review:
So is this story going to be continued? Because I am loving it so far, especially the whole Cameron experiencing emotions and stuff.

Review:
I would love for you to continue writing this story. I know that you started it for the fic-a-day thing but it is an amazing story. It would be great if you would update. Good luck and hugz, Ms Sunshine

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from CarpeNocturn
Review:
This story is great. I'm disappointed that it hasn't been updated recently but even if it's never updated again I'll still come back to reread it occasionally. Having Cam switch off her emotions when it's just the Scoobies helped me resolve something from the show as well. During the first episode or 2 of the show Cam displayed emotions all the time but after they went on the run you hardly ever saw them again. I can see her only showing emotion when needed to avoid suspicion. I hope you continue with this story as it is one of the few that I have found that is really worth reading.

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from BobSquirrelKing
Review:
This story is awesome, and you do a great job of capturing the weirdness of a Terminator beginning to feel. I really hope you decide to continue this story. And unlike most stories, your little tweaks to remove later problems, or improve the current situation (i.e. saving Jenny and killing Warren) fit well, almost to the point where it would seem weird if there was essentially no change to canon. Very few authors can maintain that balance, but you have managed it flawlessly.

Review of chapter "Discoveries" from Taryn
Review:
I'm hoping for a happy ending. Even if she leaves I hope she'll come back and end up with Xander. Or he'll go to her. Oooh! Will she bring Sarah to the Scoobies? I hope so.

Great work!

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from MBB
Review:
A sweet end to a turbulent but interesting bunch of chapters

This is mostly me begging for a next chapter, as I'm too tired for a full review. (though It's getting longer then I expected)
I've been offline on holiday (saved some chapters to take with me though :-) ) and while I'm somewhat glad you haven't gotten too far ahead, I'm getting in need of my next fix.
You're not stopping to write just because august is over, are you?

I thought you somewhere said you were getting stuck, but I can't find it back so it must have been another fic. Nevertheless I'm wondering if they couldn't have a movie night with the two of them. (Did Cam have a taste in movies? I can;t remember id Xander like scifi on the show, or is that fanon? Don't think the new Galactica was out yet.)


Some other things I noticed and/or wondered about:

Cordelia gave up Xander in pretty easily.


"...but I think the more pressing concern is that I think your endo-whatever is heavier than it looks."
Lol, I missed the double meaning of 'pressing concern' the first time around


So negative emotions came first? - guess that explains why Skynet went evil. (Fitting with the Henry storyline at the end of the show)
Sarah Connor is going to freak if she reaches sentience before Skynet! in fact, so might Cathy :-P


The Angel/OS reasoning was pretty clever; creepy and touching
at once.
(FYI: I didn't care much for B/A, but (unlike Angelus) I don't really hate Angel, in fact liked him a lot on early ATS)

I like the sweet ending of the last chapter. (over the other options you mentioned.) Still, that moment might come (did you upgrade the rating I thought it used to be pg13?), though it might indeed be morally better if Cameron is sentient. IF Cam still likes Xander once she can feel, off course...

Awesome story I hope you update soon. It would be a shame for it to end here. :)

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from AllenPitt
Review:
Good talk between Cameron & Xander. Xander feels a lot more than he thinks, it's not easy to get him to reconsider a position. Once he decides somebody is 'bad' he almost never changes his mind, no matter what. Plus, he staked Jesse, his best friend--if vampires are redeemable, then he killed his friend....

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from Gideon
Review:
That is a great way to explain the situation to Xander and get him to see another viewpoint, and so cute how it made her feel bad when everyone was fighting and she thought Xander might want her destroyed if she went bad. It probably would take something like this to get through to him. Lovely work. Keep it up!

This is a beautiful story... you're writing a "growing" Cameron very well.

Review of chapter "Comprehension" from VillageOrchid
Review:
This is kind of nice. He knows he has to apologize but there isn't any urgency to it. The cuddling was nice.
