Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from burmafrdnow
Review:
Maybe because the bullets have the outer layer that is NOT steel they do not cause damage? On the other hand in hitting bone I would think the layer is gone and that would bring steel into contact with the demon. Definitly a consideration.

OR maybe because the steel in bullets do not have the extra elements steel in knives and bayonets and such do? Maybe it is those extra elements that cause the harm?

Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from AllenPitt
Review:
Nice to know a bayonet will work. And they don't use guns, so Buffy is in her element here. Now all she needs to do is phone up Giles. That might be a bit difficult. Maybe an email? Though if they go through a battle & she is the one who saves them all, asking for permission to do a phone call might not be a problem.

Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from naraic
Review:
Good story so far. I'll be watching this.

I don't have a clue on the crossover but the story so far is good.

A previous reviewer mentioned that Buffy would be in a sticky situation if a new Hellmouth opened up. I really agree. Sure she is learning a ton of relevent material about combat that will only help her slay but she can't just go AWOL.

That said maybe Faith died and Buffy believes that she can step back from slaying because there is backup out there.

Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from Gideon
Review:
Another great update - and you are keeping up the hectic update schedule. I don't know how you do it, but I love it :)
The grunts are taking the lizard man pretty calmly but I guess it is less scary when someone already killed it for you. Love the last line, very horror film but this time the unknown killer is a good guy. Exactly why the Buffy franchise was created in the first place.

Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from (Current Donor)wizathogwarts
Review:
Ok, I'm hooked. This story is more gritty than I usually see for Buffy leads and leaves Buffy's fem side 11,000 miles away, I think you've successfully depicted Buffy the soldier.
Away from family and friends I can see Buffy focusing on just her predatory side.
Still haven't a clue to the cross but it looks like fun.

Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from evilredknight
Review:
I'm maybe going to go with 'The Unit' as crossover.
They did at least one supernatural episode.
(The one with the spear - or was it the grail?-can't remember, at the monastery they held up at in South America.)
So I could see a crossover.

I agree with you about Xander-Sue stories.
The people that love it miss the point that the small ditzy blonde is the hero, not the big strapping guy.
I could see Xander showing up tho.
Using his soldier-boy memories, he joins the Army too. But as a straight Grunt.
Maybe he shows up as PFC or Corperal Harris?
It might be good for Buffy to have someone she can talk with about this stuff.

One thing.
Aren't many AK rounds steel jacketed?
I think they'd be effective against the lizard-heads.
Comments from author:
Most AK rounds are.

Review of chapter "Cold Trail" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Oh, you bet it's on your side...probably literally right *at* your side. I wonder if Buffy's gonna have to come clean with her team - if only to keep them safe.

Review of chapter "Over There" from JoeB
Review:
Okay, definatly not my second two guess, with the resonent voice it could still be a Goa'uld, but I somehow think not.

Looking forward to more

Review of chapter "Over There" from AllenPitt
Review:
hm, still not figuring the crossover. Which is good, keeps the suspense going. Could be demons, could be vampires, could be the crossover critters.
Hm. You know if the SD Hellmouth re-opened or a new one started up, Buffy would be in quite a spot--you can't just resign from the military without notice. But that's not a likely scenario I suppose.

Review of chapter "Over There" from PATM
Review:
Rad story, nicely detailed and forward moving,something the best stories exhibit. I submit there is a Stargate cross coming up. I love this portrayal of Buffy. Are Willow and Xander doing Well? There is still evil in SD as far as canon goes and you didn't persuade me that this is any different.

Review of chapter "Over There" from Gideon
Review:
Ah, the excitement starts! I almost expected Buffy to run off down the mountain on her lonesome but I guess that wouldn't be very military of her. At least she has a hope of keeping her teammates safe. Since someone is speaking a dead langauage I'm guessing this isn't a "Buffy captures Osama" story but I still don't know what it is! I'm looking forward to finding out.

Review of chapter "Over There" from NeverTooOld
Review:
As a retired Navy vet, with 20+ years, I very much like how the story has developed so far. Using ROTC and NG to pay for college makes a lot of sense for Buffy, since her father has pretty much abandoned her after the divorce. With the Hellmouth out of action, sliding out to try and live her life as normally as she can for as long as she can has to be pretty appealing.
Getting called to AD with an infantry unit is just the kind of SNAFU that the military is famous for. I can see how the CoC would turn a blind eye to her being a woman because of her PT and firearms scores and language proficiency.
It will be interesting to see what she does to keep her fellow soldiers alive and whether or not she comes clean about her previous experience as the Slayer.

I was in for 10 as an 11-Bulletstopper. I have seen admin screwups that defy description. What happened to Buffy is actually fairly minor.
