Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I was hoping we could count on Dannyboy to figure out how to use the spell to destroy bad guys instead of Slayers, and count on Jack to distract and piss off the baddies even worse than his allies, and so it was. Yay!

Too bad none of them may survive Willow's ire, now. Jack's situation analysis seems to be horribly accurate.
Comments from author:
Yeah, that was always a thing with Jack. He was good at recognizing the 'we are so screwed' situaitons.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from Starfox
Review:
Ah... no crayon speech around... and the one to kiss her and makle it better is unconscious, full of stabby bits and chained up. Darth Willow is set on playing.

Good one with eh Ascnension cameo, of sorts - wonder what this will do to Daniel.

It must be pretty freaky to meet yourself... and maybe learn that the other you is *dead*.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I wonder how specific that spell is.
Blood connections to Kennedy - all women. all slayers. all white people. all people of a celtic descent. all gay people. all humans.
I think this might overwhelm the spell, honestly; if Danny mangled his words and phrasing properly. He might have even been able to use Kennedy's specific blood to protect her or heal her. So many options. Would the spell just go - oh yeah, vampire ash, that's so much easier to deal with?
Comments from author:
If someone had done the spell as the demons wanted, would it have targeted the 'army' Kennedy is part of? Maybe. It's magic.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from Zeviz
Review:
I like this story, but not the two week-long cliffhangers. :)

And I thought Willow didn't use black magic except in D'Lazza's dimension.
Comments from author:
When Tara was shot and killed late in season 6, Willow walked into the Magic Box (destroying everything in her path) and 'absorbed' the spells from every dark tome that was kept there. It's a pretty disturbing scene. There's probably a dozen cuts of it on YouTube. But that was very definitely black-magic use. Or abuse.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from FireWolfe
Review:
Very cool. Hope Willow kicks ass and takes names and that Kenedy can talk her down. Well done. I really like this series.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'll have the next chapter on the regular posting day.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from MarcusRowland
Review:
And this is why we don't invite Willow along when her loved ones are in danger...

VERY good thinking by Daniel Jackson!

Actually, a nuclear bomb would be a blessing at this point in time.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from dcarson
Review:
Inspired by the comment about different Jack O'Neills, I'm picturing a Ripple Effect with all these versions of Jack. The snark would be epic.
Comments from author:
It would certainly be snarkier than getting a bunch of Daniel Jacksons or Sam Carters (which did happen in canon).

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from Lyssippe
Review:
Not good. But Willow and Special K will get back together, maybe?
Also, "Buffy was wielding the weirdest weapon Jack had seen since Star Trek batleths. It looked like someone had once seen a lochaber axe and thought they could make one from memory, although they’d forgotten they had Alzheimer’s." awesomeness
Comments from author:
Thanks. The Slayer Scythe does actually resemble a lochaber axe mounted on a long stake. It is definitely not a scythe.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VII" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Gotta love those prophetic misinterpretations, huh?

Even better are the smart good guys who figure out the loopholes.

And I loved Jack's reaction at the end, about the cavalry turning out to be an armed nuke.
Comments from author:
Those darn prophecies! You try working them out, you try reading them out...

Okay, no one besides me is going to remember the old 'ring around the collar' laundry detergent ads.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from Keshkreature
Review:
*squee!!!* I had no idea you were writing more chapters on this! I love it!!!
Comments from author:
:D I blame my muse. My evil, evil muse. And people wonder why I write evil cliffhangers. It's all her fault!!!

Yes, I'm going to finish this short story and then work on "Bruce Wayne and a Golddigger" which will be the continuation of the Batman - DCU!Buffy chapter. And there are two other stories I may expand on as well, because my muse is giving me some subtle hints, and the alternative is to wait until she gets out the huge club with the spikes on it a la 'Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan'. :D

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from Zorgdub
Review:
I really don't think their prophecy is going to work the way they want it to...
Comments from author:
Isn't that what always happens with prophecies when Scoobies or Jack O'Neill get involved?

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from NightHaunter
Review:
Honestly, "A great army shall fall". Somebody is going to fall for the oldest "not what I thought it meant" prophecy in the book. Stupid overconfident prophecy believing bad-guys.

Still love the story.
Comments from author:
Well, I'm a big believer in the classics. :D

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part V" from NightHaunter
Review:
I love you. Making a new coroner procedure to help stop risings.
That has actually been personal head-canon for me. A body found drained of blood and with no blood on the scene must be a suspicious death. Outside of Sunnydale I always imagined that an autopsy or similar would make the body unable to rise. I feel so vindicated having the same idea as you.

Oh, and while the M107 is serious overkill on a person and there are some who argues that to use it on soldiers is akin to using hollow point bullets, as in illegal, the amount of damage it does makes it useful for long distance sniping as even a glancing hit tends to be lethal.
Comments from author:
The M107 ought to be pretty useful now that Jack has discovered demons. One Laragesh demon, add one M107, and Jack finally gets the chance to yell "This is my boomstick!"

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from DieselDriver
Review:
I can't help feeling sorry for Kennedy, she's so goofed up, but then so are most of the Scoobies somewhat. Like the ending to the chapter except that the two vamps must have been stupidly (they're good at that) overconfident to not notice (extra good hearing & smell) Jack above and behind them. Good ending to the chapter though. I like it when the good guys get things right.
Comments from author:
Well, they could smell people, but can you tell by smell that there's an extra person in there? And Danny was deliberately loud to mask Jack. He wasn't just screeching in panic, it was part of the plan!
