Review of chapter "Mad Minute" from PandorasKnot
Review:
Absolutely excellent. You kept Buffy true - but grown in the direction you wanted, which is the tough part about fanfiction. Folks tend to think you can just slot in a name and all the hard work is done because readers will fill in any holes with knowledge from the base material. All that manages is craptastic and frankly cheap writing. This? This isn't cheap. This is fleshed out, centered in, perfection. And as a proud Marine brat (Da is a retired helicopter pilot and most of my god-uncles tend to wear olive drab as well. Well. The ones that aren't stuck in white "Shoot me now" gear these days!) the military side of this was pitch perfect. I'm really looking forward to reading more and this is the rare gem of a fan fiction that might just be tossed dear old dad's way because I think he would appreciate it. As well as get a few snickers out of it.

Let's just say he's had a few times in his own military career where showing off a new 'toy' had him purring in delight. Rather like the interaction between B & F with the grenade launcher. Just EXCELLENT story telling.

Review of chapter "Mad Minute" from maxthehobbit
Review:
I liked this a lot, none of that sappy girly emotional crap. Just a war story with tons of action. Fast paced ground warfare, having to think on their feet and get the job done. I found this story by luck and I'm going to read the whole series, then check out your other stories ... sometimes I want action oriented stories cause I get tired of all the emotional stuff.
Thanks for writing and posting this action story.

Review of chapter "Mad Minute" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
This was one hell of a story. Glad I 'somehow' stumbled across it. It moved fast, but not too fast. It felt as though you hit all the right notes and it is easily the best 'first person POV' story I've read on TtH. Usually, I try to avoid them because they tend to involve 'issues'.

Really enjoyed the camaraderie that Buffy established with her squad as well as with Faith... She showed maturity and I really like that whether she and Faith will become good friends or not, they could work well together. They were fun together.

Peace,

Blue

There are enough authors out there that want to do angst, issues, and bashing. I try to stay clear of all three.

Review of chapter "Mad Minute" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Great story. Thought I'd go back to start and read this series through from the start (as I'm reading the last story!).

Have to say I'd never have thought of Buffy in the US Army/NG but then in your reality she'd not met the Initiative so won't have issues with the military.

Getting used to the first person thing too, once you read it for a while you get used to it and it sorta works for Buffy.

Right, looking forward to reading the other stories.

All the best,
DaveT.

Review of chapter "Mad Minute" from mikexxxyyy
Review:
Battalion 3-7 Companies about 300-1300 personnel. Commanded by 1 Star General or Colonel

Good story...should be Commanded by Lt. COL or Major though.
Comments from author:
Gahhh! I was thinking Brigade. Should be LTC Major's usually get stuck in staff billets. Thanks for the catch.

Review of chapter "Gender Misassignment" from (Moderator)acs
Review:
For some reason I missed this when you originally posted it.

Just a quick review before reading the rest of it.

Poor Buffy, off to the North Country (I grew up on the edges of Fort Drum, before the 10th Mountain moved in (and occasionally visit family up there (in the summer if I can help it), and it gets cold up there in the winter. Frozen slayer... brr...)

Good so far. Has that realistic feel to it I wished my fics had.
Comments from author:
Oh I spent time at Drum...in the winter...as light infantry...

Review of chapter "Mad Minute" from Amai
Review:
Fast paced, official sounding details and very interesting. Off to read the next in series.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it! I have been moving cross-country for the last couple of months so my writing output has suffered. Hopefully I'll be back up to speed soon.
