Review of chapter "A Dangerous Mind" from agnar
I always hate when fics start on the 'guns are nearly useless against vamps and demons' line because frankly it's crap. Smaller caliber rounds won't kill a vamp or demon, unless it's special ammo perhaps. But they can sure as hell disable/weaken a vamp or demon enough to make killing easy.

Spike is proof vamps can take spinal damage via normal means, shoot the bastards in the spine, the kneecaps, the head, the throat. They won't be killed but they'll sure as hell be easier prey up close, and that's with normal rounds.

Angel wasn't just shrugging off Darla's shots in season 1, it took him time to recover enough to get back in the fight.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Moontrap
Good night, this is one heck of a story!
I just finished reading all three chapters, and each chapter just got better and better. The Terminator crossover was a very nice touch as well. Thank you for letting us read you're work, and I can't wait to read more of it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from KingDarius
pretty good story so far. I've never seen the movie the day of the jackal that you mentioned, but the movie the jackal with Bruce Willis, which this is obviously based on is a damn good movie. interesting twist adding in the terminator universe, i have never seen the tv show (a fact that i am rectifying right this moment by downloading the first 2 seasons.) but it looks like a good twist, though you could have spent a bit more time thinking up the name of Xander's Squad.
Comments from author:
Yeah, the name sucks. I took it from Yu Yu Hakusho, the Black Black Club was a group of the richest and most evil crime lords in the world whose favorite hobby was the sadistic torture and mutilations of demons, a hobby that drove one of the good guys insane when he found the club. It seemed to fit at the time, but hindsight is twenty twenty.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from HolyKnight
Daniel Brown....the FBI Director.....hmm......After such kill, its more than likely that Xander will undergo a cosmetic surgery...and pay a caster to permanently change his colour of hair.

Hmmm.....Oddly, i can guess that the reputation gained after taking down the head of the FBI, would have likely motived Kinsey, or someone of the NID, to contract him to deal with Jack O'Neill permanently on a way that couldn't be traced back to them. There its the possibility that the remaining SG-1 may use the Sunspot trick to send a message back on time to warn Jack, on the same way that they pulled it to negate the timeline where the Aschen duped Earth into taking that sterilizing anti-aging drug. Also, there its the chance that the message it may say something that may clue Jack to pull one of his tricks, and have that stunt ending on Kinsey's death.

About Sarah, she isn't dumb....the Jackal wouldn't target her unless he was contracted before to do so....the goal here, its to find WHO contracted the Jackal's services, WHY, and if possible, either convince the Jackal to not take the contract, or to contract him beforehand, to strike down the first individual that tries to get him to kill Sarah. Add, that if Xander learns of the coming future, he's likely to start doing more contracts, and use EVERY contact and trick on the underworld, all in order to start a massive stockpiling of weaponry and supplies on the US and other nations....

Add, like many comment on the that would be one smoking relation, and it would be odd, that Faith ended trusting and falling for Xander harder than on canon.........although you forgot another more than likely future target of the Jackal.........Quentin Travers, for daring to pull the Cruciantemum stunt.
Comments from author:
All great points. As for Travers, I can't imagine anyone 'not in the know' would think he is a high profile hit or worth listing. It's possible that Cameron only mentioned those she was ordered to save.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Dragonelf
I am glad you decided to a new chapter to this story and I hope there will many more chapters in the future.

I would suggest you keep the max width of the banner down to 450px and that you optimize the image so that it will load faster. Then pick a host which allows remote linking for your banner (I would suggest either Photobucket or Picasaweb) and upload the banner.

The HTML code below is basically what I use when posting an image and all you have to do is to replace the URL of the example image with the URL of your banner.

<img src="" />

And if you need more help with the posting of the banner I suggest asking in the TtH forum or possibly checking out W3schools as it got a lot of excellent tutorials.

Anyway I hope we will see more of this story soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from missinglink
Gotta say once again you supply an intriguing and both vague and specific addition that leaves me and I am sure many others wanting something more.

First with the doctor's visit. Considering that he was possessed and it was a magically induced possession at that it should have left some threads or remnants to point towards that. Side note wonder if the Hyena and the Jackal get along in Xan's head? Interesting and plausible explanation about memory dump of the sort Xan got as a byproduct of the possession being the cause for real psychological trauma that may in fact not be related to the original possession. Overall a nice scene that shows with the follow up Xander having to internally grow up. Where in canon Season 2 showed some of the aspects of Xander taking on a protector and pragmatic role with his dealings with Angelus. Here he is making in some ways harder choices about real world life and death that he hasn't had to before. To be able to justify murder and excuse it as the lesser of evils knowing just what the Jackal will do to make him comply with his desires shows just how far the influence mentioned has spread. Or maybe this is a tie to just how subtly Xander is different due to a world with an Uncle Rory that was ruthless.

Very nice tie in to Terminator SCC by the way. Not being one that watched the show, was thrown at first as my mind was placing the time table as in the movie history between 1 and 2 where John was picking stuff up as Sarah moved around. Realizing that it was the show was a nice change and just what future history lays in Xander's path is disturbing to say the least. Like all the references to Sarah noticing just how efficient and terminator like his actions are considering his apparent age. Those do a lot to colorfully show the fine line Xander walks. He can't be himself as that person no longer exists. Both as a state of fact and a necessity due to the people he will be dealing with til he accomplishes his task. Assuming as Cameron says he is successful, it might be nice to see Xander either more vicious in Season 3 or as forward a year or 5 and wondering just how he got to where he is. Could see his darker aspect of the Jackal drawing Faith to him like a moth to flame, but that might be the test then. Could he do what the Jackal wouldn't which is continue and build permanent relationships. Also if he were then just how much colder or more brutal could he be if those connnections were lost due to death or difference of opinion on strategy and such.

Hope you add more. Nice foreboding moment on the close by the way. It touched just the right spot as a pause in the narative. Thanks and hope you squeeze out at least a little more. This one just has too much to it to let wither and you have no one to blame but yourself. You did too good a job. Later.

I know, I know, I created a monster. You will just have to see where this is going, no hints from me. Sorry. I think the response is sufficient to work on another chapter.
