Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from aveave
Review:
Great story. I hope you will write next chapter soon.
Comments from author:
thanks. I've actually sort of written the first draft of the next chapter, I just don't have time to finish it. Just be happy knowing that a new chapter is forthcoming, eventually.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from eset
Review:
Great take on a highly original premise. I can't wait to see more.

The taser I assume is Riley's? Does Riley know Buffy died? He wasn't around for the Buffybot incident, how's he going to deal with that little tidbit--both her existence and what she was built for? How's Spike going to react when he finds the house raided and everyone gone?

And how are the team going to react when they figure out what the books contain? If Hodgens is still on his misanthropic anti-conspiracy kick... This could get very interesting.

Please continue?

perhaps eventually. currently I am working on my story Ursa, and I have a really good start on a new story involving a different fanfic. because I sort of want it to be a one shot, it keeps...expanding.

Review:
Excellent Chapter. I look forward to more. I've been reading through your stories after how much I enjoyed 'Ursa' and 'Losing Yourself Completely' and hope you keep updating as you have time.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from dreameralways
Review:
Well if the US government is bailing them out then obviously they aren't terrorists but this should be interesting none-the-less. So since no one said anything about Seeley looking like Angel I'm assuming that you are going with the concept that since they are different characters they don't actually look alike. Though finding an old picture in Buffy's house of her and a guy that looks like a younger Booth would be pretty interesting. Interesting concept. Looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
if there is a next chapter in this story, then the booth seeley thing will be a gag. if there isn't...then there isn't.

I love it - the interview with Buffybot was spot on and I love that you're not making too much of the Angel/Booth thing. Great start.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from PATM
Review:
Thanks for a very cool "bureaucracy versus Buffy" treat. Angel is supposed to be so much skinnier than Booth I think. I.D.'ing the flamboyant by comparison agent is not problematic as a comparison. The misbehaving Willow and overly perky and responsive Buffy is more an issue. I hope for more updates soon.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from Gideon
Review:
Poor, poor Dawn, this is not going to be fun for her. I'm assuming Spike was not at home when the FBI arrived? I find it hard to believe they would miss the bleached blonde punk who breezes in and out of the house at night, but then again they seem to have missed the Buffybot patrolling and killing vampires so maybe they only watched during the day.
I like how you describe Glory as a dense blunt tool:)
The agents who arrested them are lucky the Buffybot is programmed to cooperate with Law Enforcement, of course she is programmed to lie to them too :) I loved her interrogation, being intensely literal would drive any interrogator insane but I think Booth is being harsh when he says she is not cooperating. She is being very cooperative! and Helpful! and Perky! I'm surprised she didn't confuse him with Angel though and spill everything, or at least call his hair "bloody awful" or something. I can see the comedic potential for the next few chapters:)
Willow handled Booth well apart from the porn babble, which could just be good camouflage. A Lawyer is the smart thing to do. If they have pulled in Tara too I bet she is freaking out, although out of all their friends Anya is probably the weak link, how realistic is her assumed identity? Pity this isn't the Willow of season 7 or later - she could probably deliver a good threat to Booth - Free us now or the whole world gets it! but I don't think he would believe her.
Contacting Riley is the right move too. he could go one of two ways - either the boring way where he comes in and declares the whole case and all evidence off limits because of national security, or the much more interesting story where he comes in unofficially and gets himself arrested too :) After all who better to supply a rocket launcher than a boyfriend in the army?

The resurrection spell could be interesting if they ever get that far too. Would the organ samples suddenly become live tissue in the sample containers or would a whole new body form around the largest part - maybe the Skull? I'm not sure if waking up in a draw full of bones would be better or worse than crawling out of your own grave but even meeting up with Bones or Zack has to be better than seeing demon bikers dismember your corpse as a welcome back.
Comments from author:
If/when I continue this story there will be a resurrection scene. There will be at least one Ursa update, and likely an update on my harry potter story before, at the least. That puts this at least 1.5 months from now, at the earliest.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Nice taser rifle.

Buffybot is played well, I hope Bones can detect at least some of the robot-weirdness by sight :D

Willow should be able to interpret the 'say no more words' thing properly, but I hope no-one passes on Riley's directive to Buffybot. Heh, Riley might not know Buffy's dead and go straight to 'her' cell rather than Willow's ;)

Yep, I'm generally against the Angel/Booth similarity metastasizing over a fic where it's not supposed to be the core idea. I'm also against it not being mentioned, at least in a passing thought, so you treating it as a running gag should suit me just fine :)

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
I've only watched occasional episodes of 'Bones' - I don't rate it at all highly, and the episode where they visited 'England' was unbelievably dreadful (in the same league as Buffy Season 8 for sheer ghastliness) - but I enjoyed this opening chapter a lot.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Bones is a show that I *know* somewhere in my brain has its terribleness - overdone personal tensions between bones and booth that should have been dealt with 17 seasons ago, and some pretty shoddy plot lines at times, but at the same time there's just something to the core characters that I enjoy.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from djhardim
Review:
As far as Booth and Angel are concerned, one could ask Booth if his family came from Ireland originally.
Comments from author:
Alternately, I could make hilariousness out of the situation. Thats where I'm going with it, I think.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from ShayneT
Review:
I think too much is made of the fact that Booth and Angel are played by the same actor. That's usually the intersection people choose to create the crossover, but I think by this point it's a little old. One could easily imagine that in any given world the characters might not look exactly like the actors we see on TV. If Booth looks vaguely like Angel, but not enough to remark on, nobody is likely to say anything.

Instead, what you have here is much more intriguing. I love the national security angle, and like the other posters I loved the Buffybot interview. I'm looking forward to seeing further chapters.

Congratulations on a great start.
Comments from author:
the angel/booth thing will be semi-addressed in upcoming chapters...as a running gag.

Review of chapter "1 - Scrutiny" from AllenPitt
Review:
Jeez, this is going to make it hard to resurrect Buffy. I kind of hope that they manage it anyway, that would REALLY confuse the issue. Hm, shouldn't Willow have kind of gasped on seeing Booth? He does look a little bit like Angel after all. Come to think of it, this will be national news, and Angel will hear of it, and he WILL head to the area promptly to try and help out. THAT would confuse things a lot.
ie, yet another case of a lookalike double in the area. Hm, in addition to Riley Finn / National security issues, the Council will also act. They have a lot of power and they're dedicated to keeping things like this from happening. I bet Faith might break out of prison to 'help' too for that matter.
In other words, I want another chapter . Hm, how about the crime rate in Sunnydale explodes as soon as word gets around that the slayer is either dead or in jail? ie mysterious deaths skyrocket? I can also see Willow deciding to try to use magic to 'fix' things (especially if Dawn gets carted off by child protective services).
Comments from author:
glad you want another chapter. means I did my job right.
