Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part IX" from Lyssippe
Review:
I love the chapter, with Jack realizing that he's been assimilated, and deducing SOP from table groups and medical equipment. It's interesting that most of these joint chapters have been in his perspective and not Daniel's or Hermione's. Is that because he's more observant/analytical of people and paramilitary organizations? He and Buffy seem to have hit a working rhythm (after testing each other) and so have he and Xander, if he knows to get Xander Hostess. ;)

Also, Jack may be assimilated and looking for ways to back out of spying on them, but he still has problems with the ages of the slayers. See:

" He asked, “What next? Debriefings? Written reports? Hand-drawn reports for the toddler vampire killers?” "
Comments from author:
I just find Jack's viewpoint is more fun to write, because he is snarky and sarcastic and observant.

Review:
Lots o fun!

Wondering if they will check out Gen West to see if he was/is involved with the NID or the Initiative.

The Marcus Welby MD reference might be dated, as the show went off in 1976, IOW _before_ any of the Scoobies except Giles were born (assuming no time shift from Buffy being Called about 1996), and unlike MASH it hasn't been rerun much if at all.

Well, just be glad I didn't go with my original 'Dr. Kildare' reference. :D

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part IX" from Albino
Review:
Great ending

I can see that the explanation will be difficult whiteout being declared insane. Hopefully they will tell Jack about The Initiative that was running in Sunnydale. Then he will only need to report to General West that the Counsel is dealing with HST. It will of course be difficult to get information in it since they decided to destroy all paper trail about its existence, deeming it and its operations a failure. He will maybe find some people that was in the program but it will be hard to do.

Keep the chapters coming
Comments from author:
Thanks! Yep, the explaining and clearance part is always one of the un-fun parts. :D

And the next chapter will be up in two weeks.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part IX" from Zeviz
Review:
This was a very enjoyable story arc. Jack's snarking is always amusing: "Hand-drawn reports of toddler vampire killers?" lol And I like how the story went, Jack's realization of what's really going on, and how everything got resolved in the end.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Jack has a canon history of not believing ridiculous things at first, but being fully on board once he's convinced. Like the end of Stargate SG-1 season 1.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part IX" from lastjuan
Review:
Very nicely done! I really like your version of the ICW post Sunnydale. It remains firmly on top of my favorites, with the Father Goose Tales version: http://www.tthfanfic.org/Series-304. Due that you are very committed to complete your stories, you have my recommendation, for what it's worth ;-)
Comments from author:
All recommendations are worthwhile, and they help other people find good reading material, so they help the author and they help other readers. The first Father Goose story is one of my own recommendations.

Review:
Jack and B as a team? I LIKE IT! Now, lets see how Jack does at keeping his word to some of these Slayers.
Comments from author:
Jack does seem to have a thing for protecting children.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VIII" from SilverWave
Review:
So glad I came back to this one!

After the first few chapters I thought I hated it :-)

now... I just Added a Recommendation...

Life is funny like that sometimes.
Comments from author:
Thanks!

It does take a while to kick into second gear, doesn't it? I have been known to blather on quite a bit before getting to the good stuff. On the other hand, if you go back and re-read it, you'll see that I've been setting up a lot of little things since day one. Like Joe Baker, who was a big bully in one episode of the tv series. I needed to explain who she was and create some backstory for her, so that I could create Azure Crush and do something interesting with her.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VIII" from Harry
Review:
All I have to say is that Daniel and Jack are going to make great additions to the team. Add Hermione in as well, and Daniel is going to have a partner that can keep up with his ability to understand ancient languages, as well as help him in translations. And when Red goes DARK, I have only one thing to say: GET OUT OF THE WAY!
Comments from author:
It looks like the Scoobies made some very useful choices for their home universe.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from Harry
Review:
UH OH CHONGO! RED HAS GONE TO DARK SIDE!!!! And not only are the demons in trouble, but so could possibly be the Slayers as well!
Comments from author:
:D Poor Willow. Her significant others get the shortr straw almost as often as Buffy's and Xander's significant others. Okay, a lot of Xander's dates want *him* to get the short straw...

They want Daniel? Something about using Daniel as a way to stop slayers? This is NOT GOOD!

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part V" from Harry
Review:
Well Daniel Jackson just got proof that his papers on the supernatural were real. And he KNOWS about W&H! Daniel is going to be having a SERIOUS talk with Giles, Buffy and Xander about that. As for Jack, while he is not totally willing to admit that vampires and such exist, he knows that what the Slayers are facing are powerful enough that a AR is not going to be enough to stop them.
Comments from author:
Yep, Jack is going to be thinking about better weapons and better ammo.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VIII" from lastjuan
Review:
So far my favorite storyline on this series. It always fun to see Jack interactions with Buffy or Xander... Any possibilities to see Sam? I have the feeling that she is feeling a bit neglected (Selina too, for that matter).
Comments from author:
Thanks. Unfortunately, this Sam will not meet this Jack and this Daniel in *this* story.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part IV" from Harry
Review:
Oh lord! When Red calls you her protegee, you have GOT to have some serious mojo going! And that is what Hermione is. SHE is Willow's protegee! And the new look is enough to make any normal man start drooling at the sight of her. Now, the hour long discussion with Daniel Jackson was SHEER PLEASURE! Those two definitely have to get more time together to talk and do research! Its not often that Daniel Jackson and Hermione Granger can find someone who they can talk with for a hour or more, and it seem like it was just a few minutes ago that they met.
Comments from author:
Clearly, Willow is setting them up. Willow has a history as a shipper.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part III" from Harry
Review:
Even though Jack is paranoid in some ways, I think that he and Daniel are going to fit in very well at the Slayer house.
Comments from author:
All versions of Jack are paranoid in some ways, and most versions of Jack fail to be paranoid enough at least a couple times in their lives.
