Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from seacheldymoo
Review:
Completely in love with this story! I like how the focus goes back and forth between the characters who are placed in different times. Another fantastic story from a wonderful writer!
Comments from author:
Thanks! I came up with this story idea while reading the Doctor Who book Paradox Lost, in which Amy and Rory wind up in a different time than the Doctor, doing a different set of things. I thought that was really cool, and I had just written the line, in "Nothing", in which thinks, "Next time I meet the Doctor, it will be *fun*," and couldn't get that phrase out of my head. Then the inspiration struck for Adam to come back in the future, and have Amy and Rory go investigate the Initiative in the past, and it just went on from there.

Then I remembered that I had an unresolved plot line from my Dalek story which I had left unfinished, and "Something" came into being.

(Both the earlier Doctor, and Buffy's coming to the future were actually later additions. IPSA didn't come up until I actually sat down to write the thing. I was going to have a cult that worshipped Harry Potter, instead.)

Thanks for the feedback!

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Mcspender
Review:
And General "I am the Law" Buffy shows her head. Let's hope nobody loses their left eye for her distrust of a fully trained, full of volunteers, and heavily armed force of warriors. I mean, that trope of soldiers being unable to adapt and change tactics and weaponry to fight the supernatural is kinda discredited. Ok, Buffy had a bad experience and all, but not all soldiers are morons.
Cool chapter, see ya =)!!!.
Comments from author:
Oh, yes, and you'd better believe this is going to come back and bite Buffy in the rear end.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from CageFire
Review:
Great new chapter. I'm guessing maybe the S in IPSA is perhaps "Slayers"? So Inter-Planetary Slayers Aardvark... Hmm. :P LOL!

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Letomo
Review:
Huh. I can't remember when she might have saved the world with a String. And, I think the Doctor might be underadjusting for Giles, Willow, and Xander's presence in the merge. Willow is one of the most powerful [witches/psychics] in history, Giles is fully trained in being a Watcher [and a system like that wouldn't have lasted as long as it did, unless something about it worked], and Xander provided the pump of normal humans being awesome, while grounding the others. Without those, a merge this time might have failed, anyways. Plus, she completely trusts them, which she won't for anyone they tried to bring in to a merge in the 39th Century.
Comments from author:
The Doctor always underestimates Xander. But that's okay, because Xander is pretty negative on the Doctor. They both have a crush on Buffy, so it makes sense. And the Doctor always calls his romantic rivals idiots (look at Mickey!).

I have been trying to write Xander smarter, since you gave me that comment a while back. Hope it comes through in my future stories.

As you say. Buffy wouldn't have trusted the people in the 39th century. REALLY not. You'll see that coming up kind of a lot.

Oh, and -- Buffy saving the world with a really long piece of string? In "Doomed", Buffy stops the Sacrifice of Three by jumping into the Hellmouth, secured by a very long piece of string, and grabbing one of the demons out of it. If she hadn't had the string, she wouldn't have been able to save the world.

Thanks for the comment!

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Buffy just can't catch a birthday break, no matter what time she's in, can she?

And nice link with the cheese guy.
Comments from author:
I just thought it was so perfect that Buffy gets transported to an apocalyptic future, and it just so happens to be on her birthday.

Got to love the cheese guy!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Sweet. Doctor is great at planning while in motion. I take it the unnamed people apparently killed along with Deborah might be important?
Read your CSI crosses. Awesome. Olparn definitely had some nice temporal twists.
Looking forward to the weaving of plot threads you have for this story. You handle them well. Redrafting and keeping ahead of published chapters seems to be a good way to success.
Comments from author:
Thanks! Glad you liked my other stories.

Yeah, I've got no idea how other people do it, posting as they write! They must be way better at planning ahead than I am, because by the time I get to the end of a story, it's a pretty standard rule of thumb that I've completely changed the beginning.

Particularly in this story. My conception of what the Daleks were actually planning changed by the page, in the first draft. I had to create a whole separate word document (complete with several drafts of that one, mind you), with what the Daleks were actually planning, at what stages, and for what purpose. Along with what every single character *thought* the Daleks were planning, throughout the story!

I applaud the people who can write stories without this kind of not-in-the-story, behind-the-scenes background detailing. I can't.

(Maybe, some day, if people are interested, I'll post a few of these behind-the-scenes background documents. Some of them -- the inner thoughts of the characters throughout "Elizabeth", the reasons the Doctor hates the Watchers Council, and the vast number of scenes in a story I just finished the first draft of ("Your Nature", with Buffy and the Ninth Doctor) that I've written specifically to cut out -- are actually kind of interesting.)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from EnergyBeing
Review:
This is a good chapter, and all that, but I think it sounds better if the daleks say "THE PRIME OBJECTIVE WILL BE ACHIEVED" rather than gained.
