Review of chapter "'War Goddess Descending'" from Harry
Review:
It looks like Buffy is going to have her hands full, not only with finding Willow, but dealing with Dawn, who wants to play with all the toys that this Star Destroyer offers, and SG1 as well. SG1 will be easy to deal with. Getting Willow back onboard the Star Destroyer will be tougher. Dawn may have to be 'taught' a lesson in following instructions from her big sister/Sith Lord.

Review of chapter "Three minutes ago, and elsewhere" from Harry
Review:
If what I am reading is true, and it would take a MASSIVE amount of energy to do this, magic is DYING OUT! That means, no vampires, no mages, no wizards, no Slayers, NOTHING that has to do with magic! Its as if a major part of the world has gone.
Comments from author:
Some things go away, some things remain basically unchanged, some things are still there, but are very much changed.
Magic hasn't been destroyed, it's been... 'pulled away' from the material world just a bit. Mortals cannot access it any longer, while other energies have moved closer to what we see as reality, and will be accessible and usable.

Slayers still exist; we see that Kendra is still a Slayer even after the events play out. Certain beings might still be around to (like Vampires?) but any abilities they have that break physics wouldn't be there any longer, so they'll be a more subtle sort of monster.
The universe has changed, not been diminished. There are new things to discover and explore; I like the idea of having new things to tell you about :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Harry
Review:
Oh lord! Ethan is gone, and people are dying. Xander is dead, and Red is SERIOUSLY hurt! Is Buffy going to turn her into a cyborg or something else?

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Harry
Review:
One thing that Terrans will learn over time: DO NOT UPSET A SITH! Especially one who has a ship like this. I think, that its time, to either talk, or consider surrender.
Comments from author:
In Taleene's defense, Earth DID shoot first.
Though given the Goa'uld situation, it's understandable that certain people in the government and military were a little twitchy, and ready to use extreme force at the earliest opportunity.

Thanks for the multiple comments, hope you enjoy the rest of the story :-)

Well, the event has happened. And now, Xander is dead, and Buffy is a female Sith. And SG1 is in SERIOUS trouble!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Recent Donor)Hawklan
Review:
quite the nice fic and I wonder if that ship might have cloning tech on board with X's modifications.
Maybe then X could be brought back in a way.

Review of chapter "Three minutes ago, and elsewhere" from rpgwarrior
Review:
I think my favorite segment of this is the one for the Council. I almost never see them getting to do anything aside from be assholes and fail due to it. Them having large scale magical stuff to help protect the world just seems far more appropriate for such a long lasting organization. If they weren't good at their jobs they would have been run to ground and destroyed by now, and I think far too many people forget about that.

The Kendra parts were nicely written, but I don't have much to say about them, except that I liked the reveal and completely missed it during her segment. I have absolutely no idea who Torrin is.

Now I will go forth and reread chapter five for its review.

Review of chapter "'War Goddess Descending'" from Gideon
Review:
Fantastic chapter - even the title is awesome!
I hope you haven't forgotten the Gouald fleet that should be arriving any time soon? It would be typical if they arrived in orbit when Bufflene is trying to get Willow back to the medical facilities. At least Willow's wound shouldn't be too bad for Star Wars tech to heal and all the cybernetic organs will be on the inside where they will be out of sight :) Provided of course that Willow lasts long enough to make the trip :(
I hope that seeing Willow again will strengthen the Buffy persona because I would hate to lose that aspect of her character. I can just imagine Buffy and Tallene trading control back and forth when trying to decide how to deal with the US Air force or other terrestrial persons. I can't see Tallene being impressed by the president but she will need Buffy's knowledge to talk to him effectively. Maybe Taluffy will meet Giles along the way too - he could be useful as a native guide to Earth.

I hope you don't end up killing off Jack just so the stargate side has a share of the character death. I feel like Jack could understand a bit of where Buffy is coming from, with her crippling guilt and all. He won't be impressed by Tallene's attitude though, even if she can back up her awesomeness.
Importing the force into the Buffyverse is an interesting idea too. I don't think I have seen anything like it before. Usually we see Buffy drawn into the Star Wars universe where she has to use the force, or she stays home and the force either co-exists with magic or the force just has no effects in the Buffyverse at all.
I wonder how Kendra will deal with all this? If the Slayer is unchanged but any magic using opponent is depowered then she is much more effective. Have Buffy and Kendra met at this point in the series? Even if they have I would expect their next meeting to set a few sparks flying!

Review of chapter "'War Goddess Descending'" from PATM
Review:
Xander murdered by a puppetized Buffy is pretty dark, anything after that is shock that is sustained by horror followed by more horror. In other words please don't let this one languish.

Review of chapter "'War Goddess Descending'" from GuillermoVega
Review:
This is good. Really good. Highly entertaining.

I for one am super excited that there is a huge military host is descending upon Sunnydale. The authorities are surely going to be going over the place with a fine toothed comb to find out why the aliens attacked. With Stargate involved wouldn't Mayor Wilkins be poster boy for possible Gould infiltrator? And then we've got vampires running around…

Obviously, this story is going to be space focused but I still think it would be neat to see at least glimpses of such repercussions…

Also please tell me that Willow is going to go Sith. I think it would be a cool parallel with what happened to her in the show. I mean that's pretty much exactly what happened. The Dark Side took over and she went straight Anakin levels of switching instantly evil (but with better justification…)

Ps. Also I find that one dude complaining about killing off Buffyverse magic and replacing it with the Force since they apparently work just alike (Seriously, though I love the show but Willow just sucks the spells out of random books at the Magic Shop and become super powerful. That's pretty silly and shows that there isn't really anything solid about the show's magic system. Certainly not enough to get all riled up about it being deleted in just this one story)

Anyway, I hope you keep writing and post another chapter soon! Please do!

Review of chapter "'War Goddess Descending'" from bentwelve
Review:
A very good story. I can say I enjoyed every bit of this fine work. A lot of stories on here are very clearly the work of amatuers and can certainly be nice in their own way.

But this is pretty amazing. My only problem would be that it doesn't seem that you finish too many stories and that there is a pretty big wait between chapters. So sad about that.

But otherwise, really looking forward to what you have planned next.

Question: Are you going to merge their minds, kill off Buffy or Taleene? I think I'd miss either if that were to happen but maintaining the divide is also not optimal. Huh. I don't know what would be best there.

Anyway, thanks for writing this!
Comments from author:
Hey there, and thank you for your kind words.
After fifteen years of doing this, I'm not sure I --quite-- belong in the 'amateur' category, but if we're going by number of copies of my stuff sold on Amazon.com, then my 'Published Author' cred, while present, is so minimal as to barely register.
:-P

I guess the most accurate thing you could say is that I treat everything I write very seriously, and I work hard to make it good... with varying degrees of success.

::My only problem would be that it doesn't seem that you finish too many stories and that there is a pretty big wait between chapters. So sad about that.::

I hear you, believe me, I hear you.
And I'd like to change that, which is why I'm now trying... a certain thing, which I'm not supposed to talk about, but you can find links at the end of the story. My hope is that by going that route, I can change both those things; I can devote more time to writing, and bringing things out on a regular basis, and also make progress on stories that have been sitting around, half-finished, for much too long.

::But otherwise, really looking forward to what you have planned next.::

Big plans: I haz dem.
:-)

::Question: Are you going to merge their minds, kill off Buffy or Taleene?::

That's a really good question, and to be honest, I'm not 100% sure at this point.
I go into stories, and then later chapters, with a plan and various things I want to show and do, but once things get rolling, some of the best stuff comes out of nowhere, and I end up a bit surprised at where things end up.
So, right now I know what I want with the Buffy/Taleene thing, but as I think about the upcoming chapters it feels like something else wants to happen instead. I really won't know for sure until I write it.

::Anyway, thanks for writing this!::

You are most welcome, and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on it with me.
