Review of chapter "chapter 22" from YademosEbyam
Okay, now this was an interesting ending. I can totally see where this is heading; one slayer will resent the deception, while the other will be grateful that the whole burden of defending humanity never rested soley on the slayer's shoulders. The latter may even be able to convince Xander that an apology to the council might be in order. If he can show consideration for NID lab techs, he can extend it to the Council's 'Retrieval Teams' (or would 'HK squads' be more accurate). While Xander already knows that he can make mistakes (btw, how *did* Willow pay him back for the lycanthropy screw up?), his recently improved self-confidence might make it harder to admit being *wrong*. So for the next installment; "How to bake (and eat) humble pie"?

Review of chapter "chapter 22" from CPTSkip
I really like the relationship between Xander and Giles. Especially the last zinger. I also like Xander sharing his toys with the SGC. Not to mention the whole idea of Jack using advanced technology to screw up the NID is just so cool. I can see Carter and Spacemonkey looking all put out about his tricks in my mind's eye. But I think they would still find it humorous under their disapproving exteriors. Lol!

Review of chapter "chapter 21" from CPTSkip
Lol! What is one of the definitions of insanity? If it doesen't work, keep doing the same thing but with more force? I think the CoWs are insane to keep messing with the Xan Man. But then again, they do make for a fun group of "bad guys", don't they? Lol! More, please?

Review of chapter "Chapter 20" from YademosEbyam
Still great, still loving it. Another small nit though; until the "Cruciamentum" Giles was still ostensibly loyal to the council and would presumably send them accurate reports about events on the Hellmouth. Wouldn't they already know about Petey? Even if they decided after Angel died that the knowledge was too dangerous to share (forcing Giles to falsify reports for a full year), wouldn't they know about Petey from the Halloween incident? If they are going to try to recruit Wesley, answers to these questions could be included in his induction briefing.
Comments from author:
Yep, they know that petey existed during the Halloween incident, but Giles did inform them
that everything was changed back to normal. I won't give anything else away. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 20" from CPTSkip
Poor Wusley! Lol! I liked him so much better after his stint as a "Rogue Demon Hunter". Nice update and I look forward to seeing what the trouble Kendra is having that required her Watcher to call in the Big Guns.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20" from Genjimat
Just a quick but huge Thank You for this fic. One of the most enjoyable I've read so far, and definitely the funiest. I hope you still have lots of ideas to come up with many more chapters.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20" from EdScott
Good chapter. One nitpick though. In Xander Mercenary Part 3, you had Travers arrested on drug charges that not even their lawyers could get him out of. How did he get out of jail?

Review of chapter "CHAPTER 19" from YademosEbyam
After reading the archive at (Googled the URL and yes, I mean the *whole* archive) I'm even more impressed at how well you've integrated the strip and the show. I also get most of the in-jokes now, and *really* hope the Furlings don't turn out to be the Tauseniggan Ob'enn. ;) I'm curious; how far are you backdating the strip in the story (the Halloween BtVS ep was in 1997, the strip didn't start until 2000, we didn't even see the ship until 03/25/01, it named itself on 05/13/01 and destroyed itself on 10/31/02) and does it continue publication from that point? Will the gang adopt a rank structure a la "Tagon's Toughs"? And has Xander made himself some exploding epaulets?
Comments from author:
Bleep!!! I goofed, I forgot that Petey was nowhere near Tokyo 3 during the Magical
dreamland strip. But that's about when I back dated the story to. Assume that the
strip continues from that point as usual and you've got an idea of how much of
the schlock mercenary strip has progressed in the Buffyverse. As for a rank structure,
I'm still up in the air about that. And the exploding epaulets? Xander doesn't want his
neck anywhere near anything that makes that big a boom. :)

I love this story! Just one thing:
> “What was the URL for the comic?” Daniel asked.

Review of chapter "CHAPTER 19" from CPTSkip
Lol! Don't take this the wrong way, but your story is just so darn cute! I love your Scooby dialog and your versions of our heroes is both spot on and wondefully warped. I so enjoy seeing another update to your wonderful story.

Review of chapter "chapter 17" from (Past Donor)chaoseternus
Very very exceptional work, please keep it coming.
Minor beef though, would Hammond really say to SG-1 that they would investigate after their next three scheduled missions?
This is SG-1 after all, after three missions they are almost quarenteed to have had at least one extended hospital visit... :)
thanks for the read
