Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
texaswookie: "Ampta was a teen spook that was on the run from her government and ran afoul of the BTVS crew partly due to her enjoyment of just killing people that got in her way."

No! The matchlessly beautiful Ampata (ay, caramba!) was a refugee fleeing El Maestro's murderous drug syndicate, who had already come close to killing her, and she killed only in self-defence. Unfortunately it was Ampata's presence in Sunnydale, and her killing the knife-wielding assassin who was on her trail, that led El Maestro's men there and resulted in the kidnappings of Willow and Jesse after they witnessed El Maestro's men catching up with, and murdering, Ampata.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it - unless you can think of an alternative in which Ampata (ay, caramba!) survives.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from texaswookie
Review:
Loved the way you had alternate versions of the way things happened in this timeline that were similar to the way they happened in BTVS. my mind started to figure how other things might have worked out that way. Malcolm was a pervy computer hacker that was cyber stalking Willow, Ampta was a teen spook that was on the run from her government and ran afoul of the BTVS crew partly due to her enjoyment of just killing people that got in her way. The nightmare episode was really a hallucinogenic that covered the whole town to cover up the assassination of the kid, ford fell in with the remnants of the nest crime family as the drugs were the only thing giving him relief. I had to stop myself as I was amazed how well the BTVS world could have shifted into something like that.

After everything gets cleared up with SGC Buffy finds out that they know where Giles is. Likely due to bumbling naive Daniel saying something that puts her on his trail. She disappears and goes after him either to beat him up, kill him for doing that to her mom, or something similar. They meet and halfway through their fight they get interrupted and they end up having to work together to save the world. Hopefully she's immune to most of his seduction techniques though.

:D I think that knowing the creepy spy porked your mom and ditched her would be more than enough to keep from getting emotionally involved with the guy. Even if he's Anthony Stewart Head. Heck, even if he's Pierce Brosnan. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from SirLee
Review:
Regarding the idea of "splitting" Cross Purposes... well, one possibility that comes to mind is splitting along universe lines. Instead of all the threads shuffled in a single story, having "Cross Purposes 1: SG-1", "Cross Purposes 2: Scoobies", "Cross Purposes 3: Bruce Wayne", "Cross Purposes 4: the OSI", "Cross Purposes 5: Hermione"...

But I don't really think the story _needs_ it. It's not _that_ long...
Comments from author:
Anything that gets long will (most likely) get split out. But I might not be the best person to define 'long'. Exhibit A: my Alex Mack story. Exhibit B: my last three Phase novels. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from JinaSolo
Review:
In 'Cross Purposes' what about splitting it into three different stories? Just a thought.

A Bat story. Buffy in Batgirl rubbers...

A Buffy story. Did you mention what was with Carter?

An SGC story. Do Willow and Xander follow Buffy down the Wormhole? Do they reunite with Giles again?
Comments from author:
I don't know if 'Cross Purposes' will spawn off its own stories. It could happen. I live at the mercy of a cruel, bloodthirsty muse who often forces me into weird places no one should go. For example: a Hermione/Sam_Carter/Buffy/Willow/Jaime_Sommers/Alex_Mack/Selina_Kyle_of_Cat_Tales crossover, just because my muse and I saw a challenge on the homepage of this site.

My muse is less like Salma Hayek in 'Dogma' and more like Kathy Bates in 'Misery'. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
"Unfortunately, Joyce Summers died of an aneurysm following surgery for a brain tumor, about five years earlier. The mammoth bills just about crushed Liz, but a certain Three Letter Agency of the U.S. government stepped in and offered to pay all her bills and underwrite her college tuition if she went through their training during summers off, and she went to work for them after she graduated."

****

Wondering when or how Buffy met Honey West-Burk? _Before_ the three-letter recruited her (unlikely) or while training or operating for them.
Tho IIRC the canon Honey West was a PI, not a spook.

OTOH.... "We heard that Mrs West has been training you and that was an added inducement to offer you employment with our agency."
"Well, she and her husband had retired to Sunnydale, and after various events in town she met me and started teaching me things."
Comments from author:
Yes. Honey West in the tv show was *mainly* a PI. With a clear resemblance to Emma Peel, down to the cars they drove and some of the outfits. And secret-agent gadgets.

Oh yeah, and Bruce the ocelot. A real ocelot! Jeez, in 1965 all I had for pets was a terrarium with carnivorous plants in it.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from dcarson
Review:
The question is will Jack greet her by name to shake her and see how she reacts or let her think she has him fooled so he can see what questions she asks. Either has advantages.

And yeah I expect that sooner or later she will either find out that that Jack knows Giles or run into him herself via the SGC. If she finds out that Jack knows him I can see her pulling out her wallet and asking Jack to send Giles a copy of Dawn's (his daughter) picture. If in person I can see her punching him out, slapping is too unprofessional. Jack will not be happy with Giles when he finds out. Jack really cares about kids.

Is Joyce alive in the universe?

Looking forward to more. How many parts are supposed to be in this arc?

It's gotten bigger as I worked on it. Expect more parts than any other piece in 'Cross Purposes'.

Oh, great background ideas there - loved "007" Giles taking part in fighting the "El Maestro" and "boning" Joyce. I hope they'll meet up again down the road.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Love the way you reinterpreted the earliest episodes of BtVS in a logical, non-magical way, but keeping much of the flavor of the original (with an extra order of 007 seduction between Giles and Joyce, borrowed from season 3!).

And I can't way to see how the meeting with O'Neill goes, since he's all too likely to recognize her even wih her terribly authentic USAF officer disguise! :)
Comments from author:
Oh yes, what could go wrong in that meet? :D

"Sure station wagons have trunks. That whole back area behind the back seat is a 'trunk'. Unless you call it something else."

*****

Rear area, the back, cargo bay or cargo area, etc, _not_ "trunk".
Comments from author:
When you get to be my age and have junk in the trunk, you'll realize. It's a trunk. :D

Or maybe that's just what us old people called it decades ago, and no one else says that anymore.

Yeah, I can see Jack answer the door.

"Hi Buffy, come on in. Can I get you a beer?"


Re the road trip-
Station wagons don't have trunks.


I definitely enjoy your stories!!

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from mandm
Review:
Great chapter I can't wait to see what's next, though I did have a thought about what may be coming up next. When Buffy shows up at Jack's house, Giles is there also because he needed to be debriefed and read in on the SGC, she goes after Giles because in this universe Dawn is her half-sister as a result of the time he and Joyce got together but he finished his mission in Sunnydale and left before he knew Joyce was carrying his child. It would be very interesting if you had something like that happen.
Comments from author:
Something like that. But not exactly like that. Still, Liz Summers in a no-holds-barred fight against 007? That would not be pretty.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part III" from Gideon
Review:
Good to see BUffy has a plan in mind all along - and if anyone can bluff Colonel Jack O'Neil it would be Liz Summers - superspy! Unfortunately I don't think anyone can bluff Jack :( Especially not someone he is kinda expecting to turn up. Hopefully Liz has got all that shooting first out of her system and is willing to talk a bit.
Some interesting tidbits of background on Sunnydale and their training too. I wonder how long Rupert Glies was in town before completing his mission? And just incidentally training teenage superspies on the side? Maybe he was there to take out the Mayor? I wonder if MI6 has tried to insert any other agents into the SGC recently? Giles wouldn't be a good choice because they know his face but they have a couple of other agents don't they?
I hope Liz has a good shrink too, she must have killed more Humans in one day than Buffy did in ten years! I could have done with some exposition on how evil the NID agents were personally. I see Buffy more as a superhero so I get uncomfortable when she, or her dimensional analogues start killing humans.
Can't wait for the next chapter!
Comments from author:
Just remember, Stargate is in a universe where shooting badguys is okay. Liz Summers is very much like canon!Buffy, only in a James Bond-type genre. And how many people does Bond kill per movie? A couple hundred?

I am impressed that you are crossing over your crossover with another of your crossovers
Awesome
Hoping for more
Thanks
Comments from author:
But there are consequences to bringing 007 in as a 'high school librarian'. As you'll see.
