Review of chapter "Papa Bear" from Arekanderu
Review:
Oh yeah yeah I forgot. For some reason SPN and Angel had merged in my mind :)
Comments from author:
SPN and Angel as one show? That would have been pretty cool. For some reason SPN crosses better with the Buffyverse than any other supernatural show.

Interesting. I like the way this is going. So far you are balancing the two universes very well. !
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'm glad you like it. You do realize there are three universes, right? SPN, Angel and Stargate... Guess one of them isn't coming across? hmmm.

Review of chapter "Papa Bear" from skychan
Review:
Well that was not what I was expecting. Rather amusing though. I'm not sure how reasonable all but one getting away is, but its not that big a deal. It could be two or three in there with SG1 without changing things much. Angel's quest to keep things hidden is of course doomed, and I somehow think that once he starts investigating so is the secrecy of SG1.

Of course that begs the question (new form rather than the older beggars the question) just what does wolf ram and heart think of alien invasions, would they support or oppose the SGC?
Comments from author:
Now, I'm dying of curiosity. What *were* you expecting? Glad you are enjoying it. As for the all but one getting away, it wasn't that SG-1 couldn't manage them... but remember, technically, they have 3 other prisoners already... Anyway, the wolfram and hart guys used magic to get their unconscious team members back. This doesn't occur to anyone b/c SG-1 isn't familiar with magic, and the hunters aren't expecting it from people like the commandos.

Angel attempting to keep Connor hidden from his friends is a stupid idea. I don't know what Angel was thinking. I think Angel's secrets are in much more jeopardy than SG-1's. We will see.

As for what WR&H think of the Ancients and other technologically advanced people's? Well, hey hate competition, don't they?

Review of chapter "Papa Bear" from Mcspender
Review:
Daww, Papa Wolf and Connor Wolf Cub, they're sooo threateningly cute!!. They make my blood chill 'cause of da fear =D xD!!.

I really liked the way Hellen fought; I mean, the hunters were in the fight of their lives, but Hellen proves that you don't need to be a slayer to be a very fearsome female fighter, you just have to fight dirtier than the other guy... and yeah, always follow the golden rule: kick them in the nether regions xD!.

I found very funny, in a dark way, the meeting of two of the most stubborns Papa Wolfs in TV; both John and Angel are willing to do anything to protect their children, too bad they forgot that talking, and listening to their sons goes in the Dad package.
Cool chapter, see ya!!!
Comments from author:
Threateningly cute! Only you, Mc! hehe. Yes, there are a whole bunch of scary people in this story, aren't they? A lot of testosterone, even for Ellen.

I'll let you into a secret. Ellen's probably my favorite character from the series. I wish she'd really been Bobby's wife -- that's an alternate reality I could really get behind! No, she doesn't need to be a slayer to be damn tough. She's simply resourceful and determined and *ruthless*. I'm not huge with the 'kick em in the nuts' business, but the guy *was* trying to kill her.

Glad you saw the humor. Sometimes, I wish I were funnier, but alas, I am great at writing battle scenes, but not so much with comedy, alas. Sometimes I see it as funny, but no one else seems to get the humor. The thing about Buffy and to a lesser extent, Supernatural that I always enjoyed was the ability to laugh in the face of death.

There will be more to the confrontation with Angel and John. Not sure just how it's going to go just yet. The listening thing... yes, they really should try it.

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "Papa Bear" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Angel vs. John Winchester? LOVE it!

And I'm seriously enjoying Jack and Connor's "bad cop/worst nightmare cop" routine being played out for the W&H mercenary's benefit. :)
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'm so glad.

Glad you like the Jack and Connor show. Connor has NO idea what he's capable of, but he instinctively channels some very bad stuff... Probably a *good* thing he doesn't remember precisely how dangerous he is.

Review of chapter "Papa Bear" from AllenPitt
Review:
Yeah, Connor is the one person Angel would do anything to protect. Anything. This is unlikely to end well. At least the slayers aren't involved in this yet. I could picture Faith showing up, investigating these rumors that Angel has gone bad & is working for Evil Inc.
Connor did pretty well in the fighting. If he had his memories back he'd do even better, of course. Won't be long before the Fang Gang finds out what's happening, probably.
Any chance you can weave the Amber Benson SPN vampire into this? Maybe an ancestor of Tara's, source of that 'demon blood in the family' rumor? Just wondering....
Comments from author:
Yes, Allen... again with all those fabulous thoughts that get my brain going. It's too early for all this thinking!!

Yes, Connor is Angel's obsession, Angel practically sold his soul for Connor to have a life. Nothing that disrupts this is going to be on the receiving end of anything good.

Don't worry, there will be slayers... but not for a while... I don't think Faith believes Angel is evil... but Giles is a whole different story and there are a lot of slayers out there who 'have never dated' Angel, some council indoctrinated.

When Connor finally gets his memories back... yes, he will be one hell of a fighter. He may also have some unwelcome memories.

As for Amber... We'll see. ;-)

Blue.

Review of chapter "Papa Bear" from Gideon
Review:
Hmm, no-one wants to talk, on either side. A pity that they don't know it would arguably be better for everyone if they did. Except for maybe John Winchester who still wants to kill Connor. I can't see that going well for him. At least Angel's team are aware of Angel's prisoner though. Maybe they will break him out :)
As for the other prisoner, maybe Carter has some high tech truth telling device. That might still work?
Comments from author:
I usually like it when people talk... but I don't think that John Winchester wants to talk to anyone and I'm not sure Angel is in the mood to listen. John wants to prevent The Destroyer from being part of some evil event... Angel wants to protect Connor at all costs.

No, Angel will *not* take it kindly that this man had/has plans to kill his son. I'm thinking that if the AI gang breaks John Winchester out that bad things will happen *to* the AI gang.

No, I don't think that SG-1 is going to use classified technology on someone untrustworthy. Can you imagine what would happen if the information about something like that became common knowledge?

Review of chapter "Answers and Assassins." from Knightmare
Review:
I think Connor is as strong as a master vampire or his father Angel. He is not strong as a slayer though. Angel once commented that Buffy was stronger then him and was proven on the show Slayers get stronger with age. Explains why Buffy went from breaking handcuffs in the first season to ripping off a steal door in the last. That and wielding a God troll hammer that not even Spike could lift.

Your right that there is something to be said for experience. Connor was really only beaten two times in a straight up fight when he was at his best. Angel beat him more then once when he was trying to kill him. Even though they were roughly equal in strength and speed, Angel won due to his greater skill and experience. Faith also beat him though in that case more due to him being overpowered then skill as Faith is more of a brawler then anything else much like Connor himself.

Two things give Connor an edge in combat. He heals quickly and he is incredibly resistant to blunt force trauma. He was once thrown out of a 6 story building and was able to walk away with nothing but simple bruising. Not to mention being hit by entities much stronger then him such as Jasmine, the Beast, and Marcus Hamilton the demon lawyer and only wind up being stunned for a few seconds to a minute at most.

So all in all Connor would give anyone even someone with more skill a run for their money or by simply pushing past the pain and winning.
Comments from author:
I believe Connor is phenomenally strong, but sadly, raw strength alone is insufficient for certain kinds of fights. I think he can survive just about anything, but that doesn't mean he can't be incapacitated. Remember *Giles* killed Glory -- who was their most fearsome villain... it depends on when you get to a person and how. for one thing, I suspect that unlike his father, he's *not* bullet proof. A flesh wound would heal fast, but a wound to a vital organ could just as easily be fatal to him as to anyone else.

So, yes, in a one on one fight, Connor has a definite edge, but professional fighters seldom fight fair. Life and death fights are generally life and death fights b/c your opponent wants to kill you and is prepared to put him/herself into a dangerous situation to accomplish it.

I got the opinion that Connor was sensitive to things like stun guns... remember when *Fred* and Gunn took him down after they found out what he'd done to Angel? there's a big difference between hunting non sentient monsters and fighting trained fighters with strategies and tactical advantages.

Connor's special. Absolutely. He's fascinating too. What he isn't is invincible. When I go there, I start writing 'Super-Connor' and I don't do 'super' anyone... If he's a person, we can relate to him... if he's a paragon... not so much.

More soon. Hope you will like it. Thank you for your thoughtful review.

Review of chapter "Answers and Assassins." from Xoverficfan
Review:
Very interesting. I like the way sg1 is concerned but give him the benefit of the doubt. The supernatural people just want him dead on general principles. Talk about bigoted. This is the first story which has grabbed my attention in awhile. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Glad you are enjoying the SG-1 relationship with Connor... I think it has possibilities, doesn't it? Yes, the old hunters are very bloody-minded. They have more than a little in common with the old Council, don't you think? You fight a fight one way so long, you lose perspective and can't see the trees any more, only a dark dangerous forest... so if one tree is too distinctive, you want to burn it -- b/c it might hide danger.

So very glad that my story has grabbed your attention. I'll do all I can to keep it memorable.. and good.

Review:
Hey, my Blue friend! I haven't watched Supernatural since the second season, but you are making me enjoy it anyway. This is a REALLY entertaining story, and I get a great big grin on my face when I see an update. Thanks so much for that!
Comments from author:
thank you so much. I'm so glad you enjoy my version and that it makes you grin! You know, I think I enjoy it more because I was able to watch it in one sitting... well, not in one sitting, but I watched season one through six over the course of weeks and I've decided this is the best way to see some series. Only when you can see the contiguous narrative can you really get into the story and the characters. While some episodes stand alone, SPN is really a soap opera about brothers... the monsters are important b/c the epic of relationship is deeply intertwined with the supernatural arc, but at it's heart, it's a soap opera... I do hope I can do the three universes justice and keep you coming back.

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "Answers and Assassins." from Gideon
Review:
Awesome detail on Connor's abilities. I like how he has no idea what he can do until he does it either! What he can do must be driving Carter crazy! Big call by Sam to stand against his Dad too. I wonder what the prophecy says and what it really means? Pity they don't have Wesley hard won experience with prophecies to give them pause. And now six guys with a heartbeat almost as slow as Connor's? I guess that means they are not vampires but it sounds like they might be a little more than Human too! John Winchester isn't going to be happy if Connor saves him :)
Comments from author:
Thank you very much. I always try to get the detail right... enough without being too babbly... Yes, Carter has a human sized project.

Sam Winchester is at a turning point in his life. It's going to change all his relationships and challenge everything he's learned about life. Yes, Wesley's memories of his prophecy disasters would be quite useful right now. And of course, it's a prophecy against Angel's son. Remember the LAST time someone got on the wrong side of a prophecy about Angel's son?

six guys... may just be the tip of the iceberg. They are definitely not vampires.

I promise you John Winchester is in for a world of hurt and 'unhappy'. Should be interesting... should be fun... for me to write anyway... my characters... not so much with the fun thing.
