Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from Gideon
Review:
Fantastic story. Chapter one was good, but chapter two was much better :) Tony was just the perfect person to bring in and identify the parallels to the Terminator movie. I wonder if Gibbs will put that in his report?
Agents Smith and Jones are great too, very creepy and already well on the way to Sunnydale. Then you got the NID involved as well and the Initiative taking an interest in the Slayers. That does not bode well for the future. Fortunately Xander can kick Adam's butt without really trying and I hope Kendra's body will not provide any help for Walsh - the Slayer spirit has moved on right? Poor Kendra. And poor Giles. Sorry to hear about the chainsaw!
Comments from author:
Thank you very much. :)

Well, I felt that Tony's nerdy tendencies deserved some spotlight time. Hmm, good point about Gibbs' report - not sure about that.

The operatives: thank you, that's -exactly- the sort of impression I wanted to create with them.

Yep, I anticipate having a lot of fun with the NID and the Initiative.

I know, what I did with Kendra's body is a bit nasty, but... well, I wanted to showcase the lengths that the NID and the Initiative (or at least, my take on them) were willing to go, and this seemed like something they could get away with.

Giles: well, in canon, Angelus did seem quite impressed with chainsaws, and monologued a bit about how they didn't have them 'in his day'.

Thanks for the review,

El

Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from Moontrap
Review:
Wow.
This story has now surpassed my favorite Terminator Xander fiction. Adding NCIS, pure genius! Denozo with his recognizing movie quotes, and Abby with her video! I wanted to review this story last night, but I wasn't on my own computer.

Anyway, the description of the T-890 is perfect. Not invincible, but better then the t-800 model. I can't wait to see what you do with him now that he is out of read only mode.

Also, the NID and Initiative was a nice touch as well.

Once again, thank you for letting us read your work and I can't wait to read more of it.

Sincerely

John

Thank you very much, John, and I'm glad you enjoyed this update. :)

NCIS: one of the situations I've always been curious about is what things were like before the show started, back when Tony was still the official 'probie' and it was just him and Gibbs in the field. As for Abby... well, she turned out to be more fun to write than I anticipated, and I had pretty high hopes to begin with.

One of the things I knew I'd have to resolve sooner or later in this series was some sort of comparison between various Terminators and Slayers, so I thought this seemed an opportune time to fit that in. And the NID and Initiative... well, what can I say? They're a fun if sinister bunch to write about.

You're more than welcome, John, and I'm sure I'll have the next chapter ready fairly soon.

Thank you for the review,

El

Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from JediKnight
Review:
Very interesting job on the story so far, I hope you'll add more soon.
Comments from author:
Thank you kindly, and I'm currently working on Chapter 3 of the Collected Data Files. Chapter 4 is mostly complete, Chapters Five, Six and Seven are all in the works too, and I've already written rough drafts of scenes for the third and fourth 'fics of the series. So, with any luck, Chapter 3 will be up fairly soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from CPTSkip
Review:
Wonderful followup to your first chapter. What an adrenaline rush! But is your plot getting complicated or what? Lol! So far Faith is being pretty reactive. I can't wait to see her start kicking butts just like her personal Terminator. But of course she doesn't get to pop bullets out of her back like popping popcorn kernels. Lol!
Comments from author:
Thank you for saying so, and I'm glad you're enjoying the series.

Yep, it's getting complicated, but I think I've done enough planning to avoid tripping up.

Faith kicks some serious arse in the next chapter - she doesn't fight any Terminators (the T-890 is still the only Terminator in the universe during C3) but she does take on quite a few enemies of different shapes and sizes. Although, being decidedly more fragile than her Terminator, she has to be more careful to avoid getting shot or squashed than he does. ;)

Thank you again for the review,

El

Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from LFW
Review:
Excellent. I really like the crossovers.
Walsh is living up to her evil scientist role and taking Riley along too.
Too bad for them if they mess with Faith.
Hoping for more. Maybe adding Joyce to the fic?
Thanks
Comments from author:
Thank you very much, and I'm glad you're enjoying my work. :)

Well, Walsh IS great fun to write as a mad scientist... even if she doesn't have a lab assistant called 'Igor'. ;)

Yep, a Slayer is never an easy target, and a Slayer with a Terminator bodyguard is even tougher.

Joyce Summers -will- be appearing later in the series, although I'm still working on exactly when she first puts in an appearance.

You're welcome,

El

Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from SCIfilover
Review:
Another great chapter. Like how you make things so different. What i mean by the term 'wank' is an internet term used on forum websites that have vs debates between characters or universes. It is used in reference when people make characters of civ's more powerful than they really are or just give them ridiculous powers or have insane powers they can't possibly have or defeat foes they can't ever defeat just because a person likes that characters or civ. Like for example, their is a fic on this website that states Willow can beat Galactus or Buffy can beat or kill Wolverine. That is bullsh#t and nothing but the authors wanking Buffy and Willow. Those this series cross with Stargate, u know because of the NID?

Anyway as i have already said, a well done fic.
Comments from author:
Thank you kindly.

Terminology: ahhh, I gotcha now. Sorry, I'm not particularly well-versed in the slang and terms online, and I've never visited a forum website. Hmm, yes, that does seem a tad unrealistic, Willow vs Galactus and Buffy vs Wolverine... I suppose if Buffy were EXTREMELY clever and sneaky, and was able to slit Wolvie's throat with a blade dipped in an anti-coagulent to stop the wound clotting then he might bleed to death... but that's the only method I can think of that she could use that would work, and given that Buffy's not generally a fan of killing humans I doubt she'd go for it.

Yep, there will be more appearances by characters and themes of the Stargate universe later in the series.

Review of chapter "Chapter One – Fallout" from drae
Review:
Great fun reading this and can not wait for the next chapter.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you're enjoying the series, and the next chapter is in the works right now. It's proving to be a tricky one (I've shelved three different versions of it so far) but it's coming along quite well, now. Should be ready fairly soon-ish.

Thanks for the review,

El

A well written opening full of intrigue and wanna be Machiavellians.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two – In Uncharted Territory" from djhardim
Review:
Good chapter

"The car was sleek, black and chic, and it hurtled down the motorway fast enough to make State Trooper Arnold Strong’s unmarked car rock violently on its suspension."

Nice tie-in. Arnold Strong was the name Arnie used in "Hercules in New York".

I'm surprised the Council didn't arrange for the retrieval of Kendra's remains. I wouldn't want to be Maggie.
Comments from author:
Thank you kindly. :)

Yep, I tend to sneak tie-ins in whenever I can - there -will- be more!

Well, at the point in time when Finn proposes his plan to 'acquire' Kendra's body, the Council is still trying to get even one piece of information about the events in Sunnydale surrounding the Acathla incident.

I know what you mean - I wouldn't want to be Maggie either. ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter One – Fallout" from Moontrap
Review:
Hello Again.
Just finished the first part and can't help but wonder what this gateway Ethan opened leads to. Could it be the Terminator Universe, or is it something worse. All I know is Xander as Faith's Terminator protect is such a neat idea. Thank you for letting us read your work, and I can't wait to read more of it.

Sincerely

John
Comments from author:
Hello,

Well, for now (and in public) I'll just say that the meaning of Ethan's final words will be revealed in the fourth part of the 'No Fate' series, 'No Fate: Transition'. ;)

I'm glad you're enjoying the series and its main plot arcs, and I hope I can continue to entertain you with it.

Many thanks,

El
