thank you for that nice twist

Thanks for still reading! And yes, things are just not moving smoothly for SG-1 today.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VIII" from hamishog
Review:
It's simple reasoning - you can't hate somebody that much unless love was involved. Here you have a bunch of kids who apparently took care of each other facing a potentially lethal situation and who comes in to save the day. The Librarian. None of them are in a healthy home situation and suddenly they have a father-figure who's actually cool. Unfortunately the one thing nobody tells you about James Bond is that he's a lousy parent and probably a sociopath. The only good thing about that situation is that the man regrets it. No matter what reasons they give the worst thing he did was leave because he didn't just take away their innocence, he took away their hope.
They were his kids and they could probably be his kids again. If he could convince them that he cared.
And survived the reconciliation.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Bond is not your standard Ward Cleaver father figure. Or husband. Or neighbor. Best case: he's Arnold in 'True Lies'.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VIII" from Harry
Review:
Loki, you had best HOPE that SG1 finds you before Thor does. Because, if I know Thor, he is going to send you back to the Asgard home world for trial. Just what the punishment will be, I have no idea. But if SG1 finds you first, they will get Jack, Sam, and Teal'c back first, THEN kick your sorry rear end from one side of the ship to the other, before turning you over to your people!

"So... Loki... Is this the thing you use to do those anal probes I've heard so much about?"

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VIII" from Starfox
Review:
Great Chapter! Giles meeting Liz was done nicely - and he could explain himself. I loved the references and hints to their shared past, and the Buffy-thoughts are always a plus. Great lines from SG-1 too.
Comments from author:
Jack O'Neill always makes things better. Except when he's making things worse. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Gideon
Review:
Still loving this story, especially the latest sections. Nice to see Rupert's perspective on his time in Sunnydale and to see that he is not unaffected by what happened there. In a way his actions are consistent with his actions during "The Gift" - the path of the pragmatist rather than the pure Hero. Of course sometimes the pragmatist has to face the consequences of his actions - like Today!
Comments from author:
Thanks. I modeled this version of Rupert on what we know of the 'real' Rupert, from 'The Gift' and 'Band Candy' and several similar episodes.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from texaswookie
Review:
Something tells me that this ain't going to end well. Not for Giles at least. Jack may be wishing that he had her completely disarm after they finish their helloes. He also better hope their are no ancient weapons lying about.

When you mentioned Buffy's katana skills I thought of kill Bill.

Edit: took my brother to see TMNT last week and I was reminded that SMG did the voice acting for April in a movie. She was even swinging a sword around while dressed in a yellow ninja suit.
Comments from author:
It's always katanas, you know. Never a jian, for example. Maybe Hollywood scriptwriters only know one Japanese weapon. :D

Uh, Diane... aren't you mixing up comment threads?
Comments from author:
I guess that would count as an 'oops'. I was reading through the *combined* comments across all the stories.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from JediKnight
Review:
Something tells me that things will be getting ugly in the next chapter.
Comments from author:
EDIT: Sorry, my brain was over on the other story. This one might now veer off toward Rod Serling, as far as Liz is concerned.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Sounds like none of Giles' options in Sunnydale were particularly good ones: Kill or screw re: the adults, and kill or train re: the teens.

At least he has a healthy respect for Buffy's very lethal skills, although it sounds like his current knowledge of the group is mostly through official records, so he doesn't know Xander's record as town drunk is as accurate as Buffy's ditziness.
Comments from author:
Yes, this is often the case for a Double Oh. They don't get sent on your average op. They get sent when agents have already been killed or gone missing, or when things are looking particularly desperate. They probably don't bother with a dental plan, because the life expectancy is less than the average length of time until they would get a cavity.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from DieselDriver
Review:
Does your brain hurt at night? Mine hurts just from trying to keep these stories straight in my head with "the same, yet different" people in them. Certainly keeps me off balance wondering what comes next. Please don't get sick or die or hurt or anything that would keep you from what you're doing. That would make a huge hole in my vicarious existence. :-/
Comments from author:
Oddly enough, I have no trouble keeping all these things separate. My brain is good at holding lots of facts and figures and details.

This may also be why no one in my family will play Trivial Pursuit with me. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from Zeviz
Review:
Uh oh. Looks like Guiles is in trouble. And the explanation for his actions makes more sense than Buffy's [rather incomplete] version.
Comments from author:
Of course his own explanation is more complete than that of someone looking in from the outside and missing out on lots of the key data. And Buffy is going to put her own 'Giles is a horny creepy spy' spin on things given she is still mad at him.

Review:
About all I can say is "OMFG!" I suspect I want to mark out about half an hour in 2 weeks for hysterical laughter.
Comments from author:
:D :D It might not be that hilarious. Or maybe it will be, depending on your POV...

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Okay, I didn't think it was possible, but you've made me feel sympathetic towards Double-Oh-Giles again, knowing that Sunnydale was his first 007 assignment and that most of the 'collateral damage' done to local families and to Willow's psyche in particular was just a result of choosing the less bad of only bad options.

Now I can REALLY enjoy the meeting/reunion between 'Liz' and Giles, I think. :)
Comments from author:
We only feel any sympathy for James Bond because he's the perspective character in the books and movies. Otherwise we would be more like M and wonder what the hell was that guy thinking when he destroyed a roomful of priceless antiques, or blew up a multi-million dollar installation, or killed so many people it turned into an international incident. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part VII" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Review:
Chiun did use a sword once, in the third book 'Chinese Puzzle', but it was a massive two-handed weapon that had been stored by the Chinese government for centuries. There is no way he would have taught Liz Summers to use a katana. It's an alien weapon to Kwai-Chang Caine, too, and Mr. Miyagi was from Okinawa; the Okinawans were forbidden katanas and that's why they turned to improvised weapons like rice flails.
Comments from author:
Hmm, I didn't remember Chiun ever using a sword, but I have only read a handful of books in the series. Also, Kwai-Chang would have been well over a hundred by then, so I was just kidding when I wrote that. Just as I only did the Mr. Miyagi ref so I could do the 'wax on wax off' joke. But twin katanas? There's probably an anime where someone does use twin katanas, given shows like 'One Piece'.
