Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from SirLee
Review:
Magi: >Best bet to get her on their side is to mention Giles. SG-1 already knows him.

That could blow up on their faces. What little Diane has revealed about SG1!Giles aka 007 and SG1!Buffy aka Liz suggests that they did *not* part in good terms. Revealing that they are working with him is likely to predispose Liz against SG-1.
Comments from author:
And we'll get to see some details on Giles' trip to Liz's town.

Review:
Diane: "After Weird Al's release of 'Word Crimes' last week, I was wondering who would go there."

Although I've liked Weird Al since 'Eat It' and 'Smells Like Nirvana', and I often play the video of 'Amish Paradise', the songs he's filking these days are too bad to even listen to his parodies. I was thinking of Deep Purple's 'Knocking At Your Back Door':
So we put her on the hit list
Of a common cunning linguist
A master of many tongues
And now she eases gently
From her Austin to her Bentley
Suddenly she feels so young
Comments from author:
I really didn't like 'Blurred Lines" despite the catchiness of the melody, but Weird Al's filk of it is excellent. With three children, I hear a lot of current music, some of which is quite good. However, in all generations, Sturgeon's Law applies to music too. :D

I also disliked Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" but Weird Al's "Handy" is great. I liked Lorde's "Royals" and enjoyed Al's "Foil" moreso. Plus some other fun: there are eight new videos just out, including "First World Problems" which is in the style of the Pixies, and "Mission Statement" which is in the style of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. And a marching band fight song.

Review:
I absolutely love this story but you're an evil, evil person for not writing it ten times faster. I wanna know what happens next! :)

[Love it. Thank you.]
Comments from author:
If I were writing it quickly enough to maintain a buffer, I would publish more often. Really.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from dcarson
Review:
Going to be a hard sell without a portal so she can meet herself. Should be some evidence, snapshots of the group, a shot of Jack, Xander and Batman all kitted up; notes about how to check if the Slayer exists in Buffy and or Willows handwriting etc..
Comments from author:
Yeah, this could be pretty tough to convince anyone of, no matter what easily-faked evidence they might have.

Willow might be a cunning linguist.
Comments from author:
After Weird Al's release of 'Word Crimes' last week, I was wondering who would go there.

Even if you're not a Weird Al fan, this is an excellent song for all of us grammarians and fussbudgets on the internet. I recommend the video, which is animated. I do NOT recommend the song this is filking.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from DieselDriver
Review:
Wo HO! Way to go. A very cool and smart augmentation to the team if it works out the way I think it should.

Regarding your comment: Well, I did say "the way I think it should.". Things seldom do that...
Comments from author:
Well, it might not quite go the way you're expecting. After all, they haven't convinced Liz.

Review:
Nice writing and funny
Comments from author:
Thanks. Jack and Buffy (even other-Buffy) are fun to write, because they're quirky and snarky.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from SirLee
Review:
Yeah, the original notes for "The League of Extraordinary Women" put it around the middle of the run of "Stargate SG-1". It's canon that a little later than that Daniel Jackson ascends. So we have seen Ascended!Daniel "meeting" Buffyverse!Daniel, and now we see the SG-1 dealing with Daniel's apparent death/possible Ascension. That's when they brought Jonas Quinn as a replacement -- maybe in the "Cross Purposes" variant Liz will take his place? Only problem is that I don't think this Liz is much of a linguist...
Comments from author:
There is another choice for a linguist to replace Daniel.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Reread the chapter and just realized something: is this the Danny that ascended and went to say "Hi" to himself at the end of Scoobies and the New Guys?
Comments from author:
Yes, this is the universe that 'ascended Daniel' just came from.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from SirLee
Review:
The real problem SG-1 will have to convince Liz is that they probably have no evidence at all that Sam's adventure in Hermione's world was real. Well, unless one of those Canary Creams or Ton Tongue Toffees is still available and -- more importantly -- hasn't lost its magic.

What might help a little, other than those ridiculously small details that wouldn't be in an intelligence report -- such as the "yellow crayon" story (hum, lacking magic, maybe Willow tried to play Global Thermonuclear War in this reality?), or the various personal quirks of them (like Willow's apology cookies or Xander's love of Hostess Brands junk food) -- but more significantly, the way the Xander in Sam's story resembles the "real" Xander much better than the "loser drunkard" cover they carefully built.
Comments from author:
Yes, with no evidence this story is going to be a really hard one to sell.

Review:
That's a great meeting! First Teal'c blows it, then Jack's wild swing connects. Loved to read all the internal thoughts, well done!
Comments from author:
Jack's strength has always been induction rather than deduction.

Review:
Happy Happy Joy Joy! There is so much grinning going here and a low humming rising to a squeal beginning coming from somewhere. I like it.

This is definitely not going the way Liz planned.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IV" from WyseQuack
Review:
So 'Murray' has trouble with English idioms but is a huge Weird Al Yankovic fan? No cognitive dissonance there.

Interesting to see how Liz reacts when one of her plans goes off the rails - in the previous chapters she'd anticipated and was ready for everything that happened to her. Here, despite her preparations, she started to lose control of the situation from the very beginning.

I am really enjoying this arc. I may be counting the days for the next fortnight.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Liz's big plan was doomed from the start. But there was no way she could know that her targets already know all about a Summers girl from another world and her Scoobies.

Really don't see this version buying their story easily - looking forward to more.
