Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I enjoyed this very much! Good use of Cordelia as deus ex machina (or at least the messenger for the deus ex machina contingent over seeing the Gates).
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you liked the chapter and my use of Cordelia. I usually try to avoid deux ex machina, but, in Buffy, the PTBs are actually part of the story, so I can't really get around them showing up when their interests are threatened.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Ah, so maybe she is meant to arrive in the Stargate controlled by the American airforce? Interesting ideas here. Wishing the best for your version of Dawn. Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
Stargate controlled by the American Air Force? How did they get one? As for Dawn's fate, fun times are ahead. I'm glad that you enjoyed the chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from AllenPitt
Review:
Wow, the PTBs are willing to help Dawn with no strings attached and no hidden agenda. I'm sure it'll work out great!
It's probably the Ori's home world or something like that. Wraith, maybe? She aint' getting home any time soon I'm betting.
I wonder who will draw the short straw and inform Buffy of this turn of events? Maybe they can send Andrew to do it.
Comments from author:
Hey, let's not be unfair to the PTBs. They said that the world would be friendly and hospitable, so that means no bad guys. Wow, those PTBS are being strangely nice. That's pretty suspicious, isn't it?

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from (Current Donor)Tempi
Review:
The first arc was excellent. Have you given any consideration as to what happens when a Goa'uld tries to take a Slayer as a host? I don't think it should work otherwise the Goa'uld with their long lives would eventually have managed to take over some Slayers over the years. In other crossovers between BtVS and Stargate the most common cause is either the Goa'uld larvae being destroyed or defeated mentally by the spirit of the Slayer. I look forward to reading more.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you're enjoying the story. As for what happens when a Goa'uld tries to take a slayer as a host, I'm not convinced that the First Slayer would kick out the Goa'uld. After all, James Stanley had no problem possessing Buffy in Season 2, and he was an actual supernatural entity (the sort of thing the First Slayer is supposed to fight), whereas the Goa'uld are simply an alien species. Sineya has always been big on communicating through dreams and passing on cryptic messages, but has never shown any ability to effect the physical world (as far as I can recall). The closest she came was when she tried to kill Giles, Willow and Xander in their dreams, but they had all voluntarily connected themselves to her through the enjoining spell. In the past, the slayer was likely guarded by The Power That Be, as there was only one, so if the slayer was taken by the Goa'uld, it would throw the world out of balance. The powers have been seen to subtly manipulate events in important situations before, and I suspect that guarding the slayer line would qualify. Of course, these days, with tons of slayers, the PTBs may feel differently.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from AllenPitt
Review:
Later on maybe the "Key" will turn out to be an Ascended Ancient or something like that? Maybe what was used to re-power the ZPMs?
Comments from author:
That's a nice thought. Maybe I'll write it at some point. I also think it would be cool if the Key was somehow connected to a successful version of Project Arcturus (maybe like what McKay did with the alternate dimensions, but done right). However, for this story, I already have plans for the Key. *Cue Evil Laughter*

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from PATM
Review:
A fantastically fun read, Is the sarcophagus going to make an appearance? It would be canon for the movie and there is more drama possible here. Good read.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you're enjoying the story. As for the sarcophagus, it probably will make an appearance, but, at the moment, our intrepid heroes are trying to get back to Earth, so it's a bit out of their way just now.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Nice work -- you totally had me fooled with Willow's "I've gone over the edge and might flay you for fun" illusion for the benefit of the icky Goa'uld possessing Dawn!
Comments from author:
Thanks. As for Willow, it was just an illusion this time, but, you know, she has been using her magic a bit irresponsibly lately, and magic always has consequences.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from MistofRainbows
Review:
Actually it didn't give (me) the impression that it was hard for you to write so that's probably good. It was nice to see the slayer take out a couple of Jaffa and such. As for getting the Goa'uld out of Dawn, good luck there. It seems like controlling the goa'uld might get it out.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you liked the chapter. As for controlling the Goa'uld, that might work, but they should probably get somewhere safer before they give it a try.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from (Current Donor)Tempi
Review:
An excellent story so far. The magic Stargate team is doing things a bit differently than the military one from SG canon as should be expected. However unless Vi the Slayer steps up and somehow gets her hand on a Goa'uld nuke then Earth faces the wrath of Ra and the System Lords in the near future. Seeing that Dawn (Goa'uld possession), Sha're (local superstition), Daniel (pacifist at heart) and Willow (Wiccan code) will be unable to make the decision and kill of a whole bunch of Goa'uld and Jaffa in cold blood, it falls to the Slayer on site to make the hard decision. Vi must become a younger, prettier, redhead version of Colonel O'Neill.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you like the story, and appreciate that you see the implications of what has happened so far. However, I can't really see Vi with a nuke. Somehow, I doubt that they teach her either to recognize or arm that sort of thing in Buffy's slayer school.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from Glasbruch
Review:
Why doesn't Willow just put some mind-control-spell on the Goa'uld? Force it to leave the Host? Should work...
Comments from author:
That might work, but would probably be very tricky. Goa'uld are both physiologically and psychologically extremely different from anything else Willow has encountered. Their genetic memory is also something she's never seen before. Probably, she could take over a Goa'uld's mind, but it might take her a while to figure out how, and while she was doing that, the snake might just kill Dawn if it figured out what was going on. At the very least, she should get somewhere safer (like Earth) before trying this, so that she doesn't get interrupted half-way through mind-controlling the Goa'uld by attacking Jaffa.
