Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from Keshkreature
Review:
I LOVE the Sid/Buffy dialogue! :-)
Comments from author:
Thanks. Buffy's the most fun to write when she has a suitable foil. Right now, she has Si'ney and Jack, as well as Giles and Carter (and maybe Teal'c too).

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from JamesBrown
Review:
FYI for DieselDriver:

while the Adam Adamant series on DVD is indeed hideously expensive,
the last time I checked, you can watch many if not all of the episodes on YouTube
for the price of an occasional commercial.
and I agree that Batzulger's Willow Adamant stories are quite good.
Comments from author:
And even expensive DVD collections bombard you with commercials and trailers before you get to watch the show. I would rather see a commercial for artificial christmas trees or a fund to help children in Africa than sit through trailers for movies I despised the first time I saw them, or - even worse - movies so bad I refused to see them. "It's... National Lampoon's Sierra Leone Vacation! The sequel to all those other sequels that made you hate the fairly decent original!"

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from DieselDriver
Review:
Ok, I'm slow I guess. I just realized the similarity between "Sidney" and "Sin'eyah" or however it's spelled. Cool thing is better communication between this "empowering being" and the original Buffy's "empowering being" and the Buffy analog here. It has to be intentional because nothing you ever write is accidental. I don't remember any reviews remarking on it though. Have they?

Ok, I'm slow reading too. Ack! Apparently this is the first time anyone noticed so I'm good with that. Took me awhile to get to it because I was reading one of Batzulger's longer stories. I don't seem to get the email notifications as quickly as some others too.

Edit to your comment: It was the stronger than Diamond series. I looked at the Adam Adamant series on Amazon and my eyes bugged out at the price. $375. Yikes. I like Willow Adamant.
Comments from author:
Yes, Si'ney and Sineya are deliberately similar, because I love obscure refs. And yes, someone has spotted it before, but very few people have written about it in the reviews.

And you should definitely read some of those longer batzulger stories. "Slayer by Gaslight", "Stronger than Diamond"... I think I've clicked a recommendation for five or six of them and plugged some others.

You won't have to worry about email notifications too much, because I intend to slide "Hermione Granger and the Boy Who Lived" into the noon Wednesday-Saturday slot I have been using for TSRoAM. I expect a lot of confusion when people step into the new story in mid-stream and have no earthly idea what is going on with The Golden Trio. :D

Review:
Very nice job on this update, hoping fore more soon. What arc will you do after this one?
Comments from author:
Thanks. Next update is in two weeks. And after this one I had planned to write a 'White Knight' sequel with Xander and Amy, but I still don't even have a complete outline I'm happy with.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from Zeviz
Review:
The most important advantage of a Tok'ra symbiote: a more impressive voice for Arnold imitations. :D
Comments from author:
Exactly! And glowing eyeballs so you can find your carkeys when you drop them in the dark. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Continuing to get major enjoyment out of the super-spy-and-part-time-comedienne team of Sidney and Liz! :)
Comments from author:
:D Liz is just as snarky and ungrammatical as her counterpart, so it's all of the funness.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from cmdruhura
Review:
Sidney is going to use all her knowledge, genetic memory, and mental acumen to keep from being thoroughly indoctrinated in Buffy-speak, even if here she is Liz.
Comments from author:
Maybe she can try to indoctrinate Liz in proper grammar!

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from SnakeFox
Review:
They've been blended for all of half an hour, and the Tok'ra is already critiquing her Arnold Schwarzenegger impression. I love it!

Also, noting the list of Tok'ra superpowers being a suspiciously close match to that of a Slayer... how did I not see this coming?! Crossing my fingers for: 1) She keeps the snake, and 2) they join the SGC and/or SG-1.
Comments from author:
We know from watching Goua'uld like Kronos that they can be stronger and faster and tougher than a mere Jaffa. Heck, Kronos took Teal'c in a fight. And we know they get healing bennies from the symbiote. How is that different from a Vampire Slayer, other than no creepy prophetic dreams?

Oh, that's right, Sam Carter got creepy informative dreams from the remnants of Jolinahr. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from Rich
Review:
I like the interaction between Buffy and Sidney in this chapter - and I'm guessing that the Jaffa in the animal helmet is T'ealc.

Nicely done.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Yeah, Buffy and Sidney seem to be getting along surprisingly well, considering.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Love the cross-snark from Liz and Sid. The Tok'ra seems to be picking it up pretty quick. Actually, Liz is probably a very good match for a Tok'ra operative: Liz with the fighting skills and... creative... solutions, and Sid with the physical enhancements and technical sklls, and both of them with the right mindset for covert ops.

Just hope that Jack can clue Carter in to what happened before she senses the change and tries to elliminate the "goa'uld".
Comments from author:
Oh, I'm sure Jack will have some thoughtful way of explaining the sitch.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from dcarson
Review:
That poor Tok'ra. Buffy in your head all the time.

She can drive O'Neill crazy easily. Just have her and Sidney talk to each other out loud during debriefings, planning etc so that they both have input in it. He'd be both annoyed and envious of the ability to annoy.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from Tabercil
Review:
Love it - Sidney & Buffy are a well matched pair! Though I think you have one small error in there:

{{ And the pain was nearly overwhelming, because Sidney had put all her points into speed and quickness. }}

Was that supposed to be in italics, or rather should it be regular text? I'm guessing the latter from context.
Comments from author:
Ooh! That was supposed to be cut out form the italics around it. Oops. Thanks.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from hamishog
Review:
Nah, they're going to stick with canon. And be fair - in this and the books Hermione treated Harry more like he was her kid than a potential love interest. And as a Pureblood Ron gives her political capital which she can then use in her ambitious attempt to take over the world. Be fair, neither Harry nor Hermione were sorted to Slytherin because it would have been too hard to hide the bodies at age eleven. H and H are like X and W - they don't need to be attached to be attached, don't you know. They go together like ham and eggs, peanut butter and jelly, nitro and glycerin.
And Little Liz, snarking her way across the universe. Hopefully she can get a quick fix so she can get back to the business of making Jack's life difficult. They need to recruit Xander. And Willow. They could put them on a team with Giles and call it penance. I wonder if he slept with Xander's mom while he was sleeping with Joyce and Sheila? A trifecta? Xander would beat him to death with a shovel then.
And if Xander and Amy aren't behaving for a return of the White Knight then maybe you should see where they want to go - sort of get it out of your system. Maybe they have a reason to go there. And once you've worked it out then they should be much more amenable. Still want to see a team up between White Knight and The Slayer. They could turn out to be the Superman/Batman of LA. If Gunn exists in this universe he would be a heck of a contact. So would Fred and she should be at UCLA.
And I am still begging for a return of the shy, but ever-so-brilliant, Willow Harris and her loving husband, Xander, and their interaction with the fembots and the OSI. Is Rudi going to get a new lab assistant? Are Xander and Willow going to correct Franklin's design flaws? Is Oscar going to get schooled in responsibility? Really, I want to know.
Comments from author:
>> "They go together like ham and eggs, peanut butter and jelly, nitro and glycerin."

:D :D A great line. Just remember what this Golden Trio ended up doing.

And Oscar doesn't need to be schooled in responsibility! He was great! Think about all the other spy organization bosses out there. Oscar was there for his people. He's not a secret traitor or a backstabbing politician or even a too-ruthless spymaster.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from Dragan
Review:
{{I am sorry, Liz.

No problemo.

That is possibly the worst Arnold Schwarzenegger imitation ever. You should restrict yourself to voices that are within your range.

Can we do the Goua’uld voice and try it?

No. Absolutely not.}}

ROFLMAO Liz should TOTALLY Go PDEoD on Sidney!
Comments from author:
The real reason the Tok'ra don't want to interact with Earth. The horror of being trapped inside Valley Girls and snarky military men. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part XII" from FireWolfe
Review:
Love it. This Liz is as Snarky as Buffy and probably more cynical if that is at all possible. Sinya as a To'Kra oddly that does make sense lol.
Hope to see more in the AU of Alex Mack. Of course in this AU it be kind of nice if it was Harry and Hermione instead of Ron cause really JKR dropped the ball on that one. Ron is ok but so not for someone like Hermione unless he grew the hell up a lot. Even Xander grew up evenually even if it took Anya dying to do it. I can so see them as agents for the Uk with the ancient genes.
Comments from author:
Well, I intend to have a more mature Ron and a less mopey Harry and an even smarter Hermione. I'm hoping people will read it and say 'now this is how Ron needs to be!'. It's clear from meta-material that JKR meant Ron to more mature, more friendly, more loyal, all that stuff.
