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?

I guess that would count as an 'oops'. I was reading through the *combined* comments across all the stories.

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.

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'.

Review:
just snickering at the thought of Chiun saying 'when you can snatch the paddle from my hand' to a slayer and before he finished the sentence she had done just that.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and a Brit" from fanreaderonetwo

"I wonder if Chiun visited LA before Liz moved to Sunnydale.

:D :D Remo Williams! Heh. If you look through the earlier comments, you'll find that I already did this kind of ref with both 'The Karate Kid' and 'Kung Fu'. Because my mind wanders off in odd tangents"

*****

I don't recall Chuin ever using or teaching swords. OTOH its been a "few" years since I read them and may have missed or forgotten something.

In my case, the possible instructor that popped into my head was the elderly building manager (played by Burgess Meredith) in the 1978 movie "Foul Play".
Its a plot point that he earned a black belt on Okinawa in 1945, and has a fight scene.

Comments from author:
It's a funny fight scene, but I kept running Mystery Science Theater 3000 through my head during it, inserting Penguin jokes and the Batman 'POW!' 'BAM!' style of 'special' effects.

No high heels went out of style during the writing of this chapter. Heeyaah! Pay back thy name is Lizzie. I can't put anything else down, I loved this chapter a bunch.

Thanks! You'll have to wait 14 days for the next chapter, though.
