Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from (Current Donor)MaxGSandeman
Review:
Carter reported three more Preds, although there may be more elsewhere. Perhaps the third one will meet up with its friends.
Faith and Carter had a brief time to evaluate each other. I think Carter may have under estimated Faith's abilities, from her activities in Iraq. There's nothing like first hand.
It's clear that Faith is nervous about changes in her life, a normal reaction. It doesn't stop her from taking on opportunities that come her way, and the prospect of earning a promotion.
I suspect Riley has had some arguments with Buffy about proper training of slayers; command structures similar to the military. It appears that he lost, since he was reluctant to use older slayers. They would have brought with them useless weapons like swords.
I guess that Faith's temporary assignment will be partially blacked out on her record, at least for people without the necessary security clearance.

I wonder if Willow keeps her little affair with Faith, from Buffy.

I hope you give us a taste of Faith going through her training, to become an agent. Well done on an alternate side of her life.
Comments from author:
I see Buffy becoming more the semi-retired slayer as time goes on with Giles actually running the organisation.

Thank-you,
D.

A cracking good wrap up for this part of the story. I found the crossover to Predator a welcome change of pace. Well done.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Oranda
Review:
Awesome story, I can't wait for the prequel. I think the general trend of giving Faith bigger and bigger guns is encouraging.

But first on my wish list is a return to Dies the Fire. I have been reading all of this Rudi Mackenzie running across American, killing Cutters and wondering where Penny, Joan, and Faith had gotten themselves to. I really see Faith and Tiphaine D'Ath as terrific drinking buddies.

Either way, I'm loving what you're doing. Keep up the good work!
Comments from author:
I rather like Tiphaine D'ath rather a lot too.

I'm sorta caught up in the Fita stories at the moment, perhaps when I've finished them I might revisit Dies the Fire.

I'm not promising anything!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Hecatonchires
Review:
Much enjoyed. I liked assertive Willow. Thought there might have been an sgc form next to Riley's ;)
Comments from author:
The connection with the SGC will never really go away. I plan for them to cross paths in future stories.
Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Gideon
Review:
So Faith just had a fun weekend with Willow? I dunno, seems kinda, shallow. Could be awkward if they meet up again, and working for Riley it is bound to happen sooner or later.
Faith's new job sounds like a great idea though, a bit of extra schooling to challenge her and some ranger tabs and WO bars to keep her interested. Soon she will be hunting vampires and zombies *officially* and she can be part of the cover ups :) I don't think Colonel Carter will ever forget her either!
Comments from author:
Yep something like that....but its never quite that simple.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from PATM
Review:
Willow pushing Faith back into the room was the answer to the question was it not? Who would show up. I think Riley knew before hand, so he was aware of Willow's interest he knew before Faith did and kept his attention on the mission. The CID Col. hasn't run across Gibbs and pooched her career over his idiocy. A prequel? After Buffy called off the dogs on Faith I presume. 17 chapters and done, well done indeed!
Comments from author:
Col Gibbs did meet Gibbs but decided to stay in the Army after they gave her the job offer of setting up ASID. Gibbs will turn up again soon btw.

The prequel is set more or less while Buffy and the scoobies are trying to round up the new slayers so she's well off their radar.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Mcspender
Review:
Faith & Carter really kicked butt, hell yeah =D!!!.
Good thing the higher ups decided to use Faith special skills for something a hell of a lot better than hauling around drunks.
Interesting thing about Wesley helping Shannon and her child, I like that.
And onto the prequel we go!.
Cool fic, see ya!!.

Thank-you, as always.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from (Recent Donor)Tanstaafl
Review:
Another fine installment to your series, excellent writing and interesting plot lines. From your note at the end it sounds like your doing a prequel to the series, I hop your planning on continuing the series from where "Foothold" left off.
Comments from author:
Two chronological stories are already written, plus bits of others and the one prequel.

The first prequel will be about Faith's first combat mission. The second prequel I have planned is set just before she actually enlists.

The series will continue to some sort of conclusion, I'm sorta still wondering what that conclusion will be!

Cheers.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Rich
Review:
Riley Doesn't believe in the missing Predator... but I bet Carter does, especially if the SGC Al'Kesh can track it. There's a possible sequel there if any one is interested.

It sounds like Faith is headed for Ranger school, followed by some college level courses. Excellent !!

A good job all round. I look forward to the next episode.
Comments from author:
Can you say 'Animal House?'

The Predator will probably crop up again like a very violent and bad penny.

Thanks,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Senko
Review:
If it wasn't for the fact each of your stories deals with a different crossover it'd have been interesting if instead of a Gould implantation project Keyes had been implanted by o.e if the xwnomorphs from the alien series perhaps one recovered from the bombed in the alien vs predator requiem movie. As for Wesley and Willow lying to their perspective partners that can't end well. Ah well i'll keep an eye out for the next installment.
Comments from author:
Lying never ends well.

'Aliens'; you know I've never really thought of 'Aliens' as that greater threat. However, it might be interesting as they exist in the same reality as Preds one might turn up sometime.

I'll bear it in mind.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from striderramses
Review:
Bravo! I can honestly say I've loved each and every one of the stories in this series and how things evolved over time. It's been great watching Faith kick butt and take names and I look forward to reading her further adventures. I'm glad to see Wes make an appearance and that he wasn't incompetent this time around, hopefully he'll get his head screwed on straight about not lying and also see the light about Faith eventually.

I don't normally like to just leave a gushing review but I saw nothing that needed constructive crit. Well done and more please! :)
Comments from author:
Wow thanks.

I have a spin-off story concerning Wes and Shannon panned for some time in the future (I'm about two or three stories ahead of what I've posted).

Bearing in mind that this series started as a one-off story it has gone surprisingly well!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventeen." from Cordyfan
Review:
A fine end to a great story. The Predators dealt with, lots of job offers for Faith, and she still - hopefully - has Willow. It might be tricky for the latter if the truth ever comes out, but at least Faith is confident in her new persona, so it shouldn't be too much of a shock. As for Wesley? He needs a kicking. Dragging a pregnant Slayer across the country, living out of motels, all to serve his own ego. I hope the Council kick his arse in the next story. Is this the last of Keyes, or are we likely to meet him again in his Goa'uld host form?

Thanks for writing this.
Comments from author:
Thanks.

I think you're being a little hard on Wes, but he is being a bit of a pratt so maybe you have a point.

Oh dear god when everything comes out, as it will at some point, the fur is gonna fly. For once it'll depend on Faith as to what happens.

Cheers,
D.
