Review of chapter "The Raid, Part I" from (Past Donor)Skyefather
Review:
Outstanding! You've taken what someone else wrote and expanded it into a great story. Please update soon
Comments from author:
Thank you very much for your kind words, sir. I do intend to renew my efforts at some point, but the muse is a fickle friend as well as rather finicky, if you'll excuse the alliteration. ..new ideas and all that tripe, you know how it goes.

Review of chapter "The Raid, Part I" from Harry
Review:
Something tells me that Buffy and Faith may not be the only Force sensitives on this mission. The way that Dawn reacted to that brief glance of Oz, with that lady Death, is enough to make me wonder what else Xander might have in mind. This raid is going to have to be quick and fast to get everyone out of there!

2-7-2014 The reference to Lady Death is due to the female death figure that Dawn saw in a vision. Anyone who saw a decaying female figure, who looked like she was dying, is enough to scare ANYONE!

What lady Death? Was that a typo?

Review of chapter "Resistance" from Muadzin
Review:
Nothing against your story, which is awesome in itself, but I must point a few things about Iran. First they were quite friendly to the US in 2001 and even offered aid and the use of their territory against the Taliban after 9-11. The Iranian government at the time was led by reformers willing to make an accommodation with the US. It wasn't until the Axis of Evil speech that relations began to sour again and turned into the current mess. Even then the Iranians are cold calculating realists. They would sooner send special forces into Afghanistan to help train and organize insurgents against the Americans then blindly charge in with a full invasion.

2ndly the Iranian armed forces could never hope to launch a full invasion of Afghanistan. They couldn't even do it a few years before 9-11 when the Taliban killed Iranian diplomats, let alone against a US force. Best estimates only had them advance as far as Herat and stay just long enough to arm some local warlords to fight for them against the Taliban. At its essence the Iranian army is mostly a light infantry army. Any warplans they have in case of war with the US involve retreating into the interior to save their regular army and use their Revolutionary Guard (which outnumbers the regular army) as insurgents.

Review of chapter "On Shovel Speeches and Rescue Plans..." from Harry
Review:
I'm not surprised that B and F are strong with the Force. As we have seen in Ragnarok, B and F scored the highest on the Miochloridian tests. Now, lets hope that this battle plan works out. I would HATE to see Joyce and/or Dawn be used as pawns against Buffy or Faith.
Comments from author:
Sorry, Harry. This is a revision of grd's original story and has nothing to do with Code Ragnarök. Giles knows Buffy and Faith are strong in the Force because he can feel it in the Force. Thanks for the review.

Here's hoping the Rebels are crushed! :D

Damn Excellent Fic!

It's good to see more of this story. I had some doubts at first but it's really first rate.

Keep your ear to the ground, true believer, there's more to come....

Review of chapter "You Can Never Go Home Again..." from Harry
Review:
Xander, you may have Oz trained as a Sith, but there are SOME THINGS that you cannot change. And the love and care of a mother for her children is one of them. And if you think, for one moment, that your velvet glove/Iron hand techniques are going to make her talk, think again. B and F are on the way, and they WILL take out every one of those clone troopers to get Joyce and Dawn out of their in one piece! And you take THAT to the bank!
Comments from author:
Did you forget a certain Watcher and US Air Force black ops team?

Review of chapter "Narrow Escape" from Harry
Review:
Xander vs. Giles. The battle between Sith and Jedi is coming. Just when is up in the air, but it IS coming!
Comments from author:
It may be a while yet before we get that far, possibly another book unless 'grd' decides otherwise ...remember, this is called "Fall of the Republic", not "Restoration"..I'm not sure that grd meant this to have a happy ending.

Review of chapter "Hard Contact" from Harry
Review:
As the Little River Band put it years ago, HANG ON! HELP IS ON THE WAY! I'LL BE THERE AS FAST AS I CAN! And that means that the people in the penthouse need to hold out just a little bit longer. With Jenny and Giles on the scene, things are going to change for the better VERY quickly!

Review of chapter "Confrontation" from Harry
Review:
Well, the Mercs have learned the truth and are going to give Travers something to chew on! And now that SG1 and the Military are on the same page, that helps out a great deal Now, time to check on Dawn. I suspect that she is at the hospital being interrogated by Xander's apprentice Oz.
Comments from author:
Have a gander at the latest chap posted just tonight, titled "You Can't Go Home Again..." It might surprise you, but only a bit. Have fun!

Review of chapter "Cleveland Bound" from Harry
Review:
Sounds like we are about to have a big firefight between the Clone soldiers, SG-1 and the extraction team sent by the council. I have only two things to say: A) CRY HAVOK AND UNLEASH THE DOGS OF WAR! B)BURN BABY BURN!
Comments from author:
Ummm, according to Shakespeare, it was "Cry Havok and LET SLIP the dogs of war!" Might wanna keep that in mind next chap...which should be already posted...

Review of chapter "Angel of Cleveland" from TheatricalBarrister
Review:
A senator wanting to become president of the US through assassinations is bound to ultimately fail unless the entire House of Representatives is killed. The President Pro Tem of the Senate is third in the line of succession. The Speaker of the House of Representatives is second. Only the Vice President can actually become president due to succession, even on the current President retiring. Anyone else in the line of succession is only acting president. That means that if the President pro Tem of the senate is acting president, as soon as the congress elects a speaker of the house, that person becomes the highest in the line of succession, and then replaces the acting president. Kinsey's plot to become president cannot succeed if he wishes to maintain some semblance of legitimacy.
Comments from author:
Yes, that's true. Unfortunately, that's probably what Xander and Kinsey had in mind with their own Order 66; not only the military, but also the Congress and every department head in the Federal government as well as every state organization in every state, plus their deputies. County and municipal governments would be left alone as the task of eliminating every mayor and county judge in the US would be counterproductive at best, and impossible at worst.

Plus just killing every lawmaker that could make trouble would not be enough; one's own supporters would have to be positioned first to take over in a "special" election, so to speak...

Also you remember reading that the Supreme Court got wiped out by clones as well...Harris and Kinsey pretty much have "downsized" the government until there's not enough lawmakers and judges to resist a total stormtrooper takeover, the dissolution of the republic, and the establishment of a dictatorship in the form of the new Empire...

Review of chapter "On the Road" from Harry
Review:
I think that Xander is going to be VERY interested in these reports about Faith and her watcher, along with that of Wesley. And what Giles told Jenna, is going to be enough to chill ANYONES blood!

Review of chapter "Resistance" from Harry
Review:
Well, the resistance now knows that Faith and her Watcher busted out of the Federal Prison in Boston. Now, its time to let Giles know, and get them to Cleveland to help out.
