Oops! Sorry for the double post, I don't know how that happened.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
The paraphrased Oracle of Delphi prophecy jumped out at me, too, but I read the story at work (where it's difficult for me to log in to comment) and by the time I got home GwynApNudd and Xovervore had beaten me to it.

Great chapter. The down side is that now there are two dreary weeks to wait until the next chapter, with only the faint hope that TSROAM will return to form now that the tedious Resident Evil arc is over, or that Cordyfan will post another Fate's Little Plaything chapter, to sustain me through the drought.
Comments from author:
Well, on the bright side, Alex is going to have to go chat with that guy in Gotham and the blonde reality starlet in Hollywood. And then... something else will happen. :D

And I'm happy having tons and tons of batzulger and dogbertcarroll and CrazyDan and scribbler and all the other authors I enjoy reading.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from JediKnight
Review:
Very interesting job on the update, but the Spider Man villian you mean is not "The Gator" he is called "The Lizard". I hope to read more soon.
Comments from author:
Yes, that's right. I apologize to Dr. Curt Connors.

'The Gator' wears blue and orange, and mainly just complains about Florida State University. :D

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from Xovervore
Review:
Quote - "The prophecy says that when we bring him here, he will act, and a great army will perish."
Tricky things prophecies:
Quote - The answer from the Oracle of Delphi concerning whether Croesus should attack the Persians (famous for its ambiguity): If you attack you will destroy a great empire.

And so it happened.

And, as you know, I am nothing if not a student of the classics. :D

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from ReneeMc
Review:
You know, it's going to end up being a tough call whether I like this Jack or Alex's Jack more. I'd say please keep writing I need more data but I think you've already got that covered. ;) Wish I could double recommend your stories just to show awesome I really think they are!
Comments from author:
Thanks! Richard Dean Anderson just made Jack a great character. I like Kurt Russell, but I did not like the 'Stargate' movie Jack. And I really didn't like the movie version of Daniel, but that was partly the actor, who I don't care for.

Way to go, Jack! Making with the actual sneaky slayage!
Comments from author:
Boy, as soon as Jack gets the right firearms and the right ammo, he's going to be dangerous.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from frozenchicken
Review:
@Burmafrdnow: Who said the demons even need to touch it? Assume competency on the part of the villains. Maybe they can dull that particular effect, or it simply requires a ritual that can be performed wherever the Scythe is. There, problem solved.

That said, assuming competency on the part of the heroes is a thing too.
Comments from author:
I usually opt for competent heroes and also competent (main) villains, even if they have some Quirky Miniboss Squads or wacky sidekicks.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from burmafrdnow
Review:
not bad but still a little lame. The Scythe can only be wielded by a Slayer Champion. Any demon that touches it gets fried no matter how tough he is. It cannot be used for evil. Caleb would have found out the hard way if he had ever touched it. But hey I guess you were desperate for a cliffhanger.
Comments from author:
No one said they were going to *wield* it. Just use it in a spell. It is pretty powerful, and a non-Slayer has done so. And if I really was dying for a cliffie, I would have ended it *before* Jack dusted those two lamers. :D

Nice to see Jack and Daniel getting up to speed.
Comments from author:
Yep, the nice, easy introduction. Like getting thrown off the end of the pier so you can learn to swim. :D

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from NeverTooOld
Review:
Okay, awesome chapter. Daniel's quiet little breakdown/freak out was perfect. He knew intellectually that vamps and demons might have been real, at one time, but to realize that they are not only still around, but COMMON, is mind shattering.

Now, Jack. What can you say but that he is a total BAMF, no matter what universe. Going hand to hand with a fledge, without any vamp specific training? Pretty cool. To then figure out a new demon's only weak point, hit it and rescue the downed Slayer. Impressive. Then to top it off with a successful ambush and double-dusting of two experienced vamps. BAMF.

During the time-loop? Hysterical.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Jack is a very dangerous guy who likes to pretend to be that wacky sitcom neighbor. Anyone remember him and Teal'c golfing through the Stargate?

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
re
"He recognized the look in her eyes. It was The Look. The thousand yard stare. The look you saw in the eyes of guys who had seen too much war and too much horror within their war, and they couldn’t unsee that crap. He’d seen it in his own eyes more than once in front of the mirror. There was no way a woman who wasn’t quite twenty-one yet should have that look."

****

Jack _knows_ better than that.

Wondering how many 20th century _Americans_ under 21 have had The Look. Drafted or enlisted at 17-19, then nasty combat experience in WW1, WW2 or Korea.

Note the source of the magazine picture that _named_ The Thousand Yard Stare, namely the Pacific Battle of Peleliu Island. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thousand-yard_stare

Noting that The Look and The Thousand Yard Stare may have _somewhat_ different meanings.

Then there are the more recent ones after a tour of duty or two in Nam, Iraq or 'Stan. Nearly all males, but I suspect that a few pre-2000 (military) women who had particularly nasty experiences had The Look, recalling a non-fiction book on a nurse's experience in a MASH type hospital in Viet Nam, she came back an alcoholic. Then there are the post-2000 American women with combat experience.....

I won't go into all the 20th-21th century non-American girls and women who have The Look.
Comments from author:
Yes, Jack knows that. But he also knows Kennedy is not a member of the armed forces. She was born to a life of privilege. She should not have endured those kind of experiences. That is what Jack was thinking.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from Starfox
Review:
I didn't expect the action to continue - nor to lead to such a cliffhanger. Good chapter!
Comments from author:
Thanks. I could have left it with an even worse cliffhanger, but I went ahead and polished off those two lamer vamps.

Review of chapter "Scoobies and the New Guys, part VI" from GwynApNudd
Review:
"A great army will fall." Why am I reminded of when the Oracle of Delphi made a similar prophesy in answer to Croesus of Lydia?

"... and the dragon you rode in on." Would that be the dragon Alex and Buffy fought in D'Lazza's hell demension?

@Iron Ox:

Daniel has Ascended, but not this incarnation of him. He has already fulfilled that aspect of the prophesy. When he translates the tablet for them, the spell contained on it will destroy a great army, fulfilling the rest of the prophesy. :-P
Comments from author:
And prophecies always come true. You just can't trust the wording.
