Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from (Current Donor)BaronScrewtape
Review:
I wonder if Chiun visited LA before Liz moved to Sunnydale.

Comments from author:
:D :D Remo Williams! Heh. If you look through the earlier comments, you'll find that I already did this kind of ref with both 'The Karate Kid' and 'Kung Fu'. Because my mind wanders off in odd tangents.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from ScorpioP
Review:
I very much loved your "007" version of Sunnydale -- the more things change, the more they stay the same, no?
Comments from author:
Thanks. It sure is odd how these alternate universes have so much in common, almost like there's some sort of Great Editor In The Sky keeping things lined up...

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Hecatonchires
Review:
Great to see it from G-007's perspective. Did you sort of squish a few seasons of Buffy into 3 months?
Comments from author:
Yes, I basically crushed in everything from episode 1 through the very end of season 3. Or rather, I cherry-picked some highlights from the first three seasons.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Sunhawk
Review:
Hrmmmm, mastery of twin katanas... could it be that Buffy met a certain Bride as a kid?
Comments from author:
That's one option. Maybe a really old half-american half-Chinese man walked barefoot into her town and said to Liz, "When you can snatch the peddle from my hand..." :D


"Grasshopper?!?! I don't want to be called 'grasshopper'!"
"Perhaps... locust?"
"No! No bug nicknames, okay?!"

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
VERY nice 'real-world-esque' re-interpretation of the Buffyverse; I tried something similar for my story 'Angel's Eleven', but you added some very interesting layers of international intrigue to the reason people were 'congregating' there.
Comments from author:
Thanks! When I started doing the world-building, the Ethan Rayne thing was the first thing that my muse wanted to introduce, only it couldn't be magic. So, if Giles is 007, then suddenly we switch from a Buffy-esque setting to something more like 'Goldeneye'. And clearly, Rupert should not have stepped in to try and save Willow and Jesse, just as he should not have saved Sheila Rosenberg's life. He should have been an utterly ruthless bastard.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Review:
OH dear... Poor Rupert....and Oh Yay! The whole team...Liz, Willow and Xander...+++ SGC will have the whole team. Ahahahahahahh

Sorry, couldn't resist. :)

But that is smashing and I can hardly wait. Even if I have to deal with the inbetween fireworks. I know how to duck and cover, you see.

Anyhow, very much looking forward to the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Thanks. And maybe Rupert deserves it. He has done some quite unpleasant things, even though they were things that he was *required* to do.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
" The town had inadequately regulated shipping, suspiciously incompetent police, an unrealistically optimistic newspaper and city council, a corrupt if jovially friendly mayor, a university and a private college and two ‘light industry’ research areas all with some suspicious activities, a nearby military base with suspect security, too much income for the population, rival drug gangs, and the worst rate of felony murder he had ever seen, all kept quite sub rosa. And Rayne could have been involved in anything, from smuggling via the ships to accessing mil spec hardware from the Army base, to stealing some new high-tech device out of one of the light industrial companies.

It had eventually turned out that the answer was D: all of the above, with some mild cooperation from the mayor and the mayor’s pet drug gang.

Elizabeth Summers was astonishingly athletic, and possibly more lethal at martial arts than half the Double Oh series – he had no idea who had been teaching Elizabeth forms with katanas, but he most certainly did not want to meet that individual in a dark alley."


****

The joys of life in SunnyHell!!!!!
Fun bit of making this "mundane" town and most of the various messes match the canon supernatural armpit.

Who gave Liz all that (presumably _multiple_ years worth of) armed and unarmed _combat_ (as compared to sport) training?
It couldn't have been Honey West, as they presumably met _after_ Liz moved to town, NTM I doubt that she used swords.
Comments from author:
Who taught Liz? There was this really old Chinese guy who started her out by teaching her how to wax his car and how to paint his fence... :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from Grovtech
Review:
I have to wonder if Jack has any idea of how much this version of Liz hates this world's Giles? I do like how you separated the two secret agent versions of him. The one in Alex's world moved into administration as it were, but the SG version stayed in the field. At least he has some regrets for the badness of the Ripper while Alex's appears to not have changed.

The next chapter should be ... interesting. :)
Comments from author:
Well, we really have no idea how many regrets the Alexverse Giles has, or how he feels about doing the things that he is tasked to do by his superiors. He will, however, make a quite ruthless M, if he lives that long.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from fpb
Review:
This story has an enormous flaw. It only appears every two weeks.
Comments from author:
:D :D :D

But on the upside, I adhere to my publishing schedule. So next chapter on September 15. Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from cmdruhura
Review:
Jack O’Neill strolled in with a big smirk on his face, which inevitably meant the man was up to no good.

It depends on whose definition you are using, doesn't it?
Comments from author:
:D Yes, it does. But think about how many times he walked into Daniel's office, or Carter's office, or even General Hammond's office with that big naughty smirk. He was up to no good, but not in a 'take over the world' way, just in a 'time to entertain myself' way.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from hamishog
Review:
Well, there'll be a hot time in the old town tonight. Especially if Liz sees Giles. The collateral damage should be quite extraordinary.
And kudos for maintaining the Xander/Willow connection. All too many see their relationship as...well, weird. It's not quite sibling and it's not quite romance. It's love - raw, pure and unrefined. Because what else can you call it when a man demands the right to die first. That was so cool. I can see bad things happening if Xander and Willow aren't brought into the fold as it occurs to me that they probably would invade Cheyenne Mountain. The dynamic between those three is insane. And beautiful. And quite possibly lethal. I wonder if Giles thinks about what he's unleashed on the world - in a very real way his kids.
Comments from author:
Giles clearly does think about it. And he managed to keep tabs on them when they did NOT want to see him again. But he's 007, so when he feels guilty about something that happened on a mission... he just shuts up about it and compartmentalizes.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Starfox
Review:
Great chapter! Liz' "insano" thoughts, her remarks about "until high heels went out of stlye - perfect Buffy. And to see Giles' side of things... good work on making him sympathetic again. But the cliffhanger... can't wait for the next chapter!
Comments from author:
Well, every version of Bond is 'the hero' but would not look like one from the outside.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I enjoyed seeing this version of Rupert being less of a cad (or at least having regret) compared to the one in the Alex-verse. Good chapter. Thanks for continuing.
Comments from author:
There's nothing that says the Alexverse Giles doesn't regret some of the things he does because it is his job.
