You've crafted a wonderful story and I can hardly wait for the next chapter.

Hope this catches on again, because it's brill. Racetrack for a sort of S.O. is odd, but works. Like how you have Starbuck being a nacent mind reader, because that makes a large amount of sense to me. She does know JUST what to say to piss someone off, after all. LOL

Anyway, hope this comes back!

Wow. It's been a year and it looks like my very favorite unfinished fan fiction of all time has been abandoned. Sigh. Oh, well. I'll guess I'll give all this money to somebody else, instead.

Hi

I know I'm "late to the party", but I'm hoping you don't have to abandon this story. It's a lot of fun to read.

Thanks,

Nancy

Very much enjoyed the story, re-read or not. Hope it gets updated, eventually.

This is really pretty good, hope you continue it.

Thanks for writing.

Howdy,

Just wanted to say that I have been enjoying this series and hope to see it continued. It is one of the more unique crossovers out there.

Just re-read this chapter. I love the story, and hope that everything is alright with you and that you'll update soon.

Thanks for the enjoyable story.

Wow. A good start to an original crossover idea. I really enjoyed reading this and it seems to be just picking up when the last chapter was posted. The Maggie / Harry dynamic was doing pretty well and the plot has a lot of potential.

I hope to read more of this, Thanks, BrianJT

I read your story. What there is of it so far, that is, and I found myself enjoying it, enough so that I gave Caprica a view. I was less pleased with the show. Moreso even, than with the BSG remake, which I felt took a nonsensical turn when cylon stormtroopers marched through town. Maybe I never really understood. But your story is better. Your jokes are right on, your pacing is steady, the characters are... no wait, it's still fanfiction, nevermind. But what I'm still waiting for is the main storyline to begin. Wait. Has it?

While you are, of course, under no obligation to continue writing, you must continue writing. Otherwise, endless torture. And pain. Lot's of pain. Understand? I might need to be reminded how to use the carrot.

Awww, come on! How much do we have to paypal you to continue writing this story? You've actually got me to watch the new BG (which I'd not ever done before; it always seemed too hoky). Now you give us a taste but don't put out the rest??? That's mean.. Come on! One more chapter. I'm not addicted; I can quit any time I want. I just don't feel like quitting reading this story yet, that's all...

Great read. I very much look forward to seeing what happens next, should you offer it :)

I didn't really expect to enjoy this one, having not really appreciated the new BSG, but your characterisation of Harry and Maggie has been a lot of fun. I especially like the way you haven't leapt in and given him the new language, or an instant familiarity with this strange new world

Likewise the world you have extrapolated/ created for them to meet in has been a lot of fun. Having not seen the series I can't really tell how much is you and how much might come from the 'origin' story, but I am reasonably confident that they never threw in all the imaginative details you have used to give the culture the depth it has in this story.

The tantalising inclusion of skills they will both need come the invasion gives me hope that this tale has a long way to go and I am already wondering if you are going to go down the route of one or the other joining up, or if instead they will end up fighting their own private war for a while.

I am therefore, in case you hadn't guessed, much looking forward to seeing where this one might go; wether that is Harry following Maggie for some college time romance while he works or something else entirely.

Thanks for sharing, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more

My apologies for forgoing the reviews so far. Mostly because this is a crossover to a universe i don't know at all. This of course places me rather firmly in Harrys shoes.

I like the entire setup with him as a "retard". He doesn't speak the language, can't read or write, so he just has to be a retard. Our word for uncivilised people, barbarian, also comes from ancient Greece, and refers to people who doesn't understand or speak Greek but insists on making "Barr barr" noises.. The condescending attitude from the "normals" is also a lot of fun. Maggie is very credible, as a rather protected teen rebel-without-a-cause. I do however find it odd that she's not more curious about Harry's inconsistencies. She really should do more spying. The Starbuck episode was illuminating, and it does fit with what little i have seen of the serie. All in all, i get that same feeling of intrinsic quality from this story as i did when i first started on "Bungle". I love.

Now, what kind of insane thing would i pull or plan in Harry's shoes? Cowhenge is a good one, but i would combine it with an overpowered ageing charm. Make it look ancient even to tests. With a great big hoopla of scientists, historians, priests and newsfolk nearby, it would be easy for him to slip away. Any kind of aged, found statue would be fantastic fun and great diversions. A self-portrait of the god "Haronius the clueless" perhaps? That might get some attention..=)

Good on yez, and i will now have to watch the entire series before your next installment. Sometimes self-employment is a really good thing..=)

Great chapter jbern! I've very much enjoyed your stories up till now, and have read some of your published work. Good luck on the next chapter, I can't wait!

By the way, I have never seen Battle Star Galactica, and you have done a great job of getting me interested and slowly introducing the world in a non confusing way (much easier than the show, actually.) I look forward to watching it when I finish your crossover. You should do more crossovers!

That was a fun chapter.

Mathew McCrillis posted a comment on Sunday 3rd March 2013 1:23am

Awww, that could have been fun, bouncing around spreading brand new urban myths about with transfigurations that would disappear in hours!

I like the new chapter, thanks for sharing!

Cheers~!

Crys posted a comment on Saturday 2nd March 2013 4:15pm

Hmm. Good job showing Harry's progression with the language. Believable level of progress and still a little stilted. His talk with Helo at the end was perhaps a bit more coherent than you meant, though. But you didn't want him to be seen as an idiot, I guess.

Update on the status of the elves and the greenhouse. Nice to see he's going to have at least some income once he's "released into the wild".

Oh, and nice job of threading the fact that there is at least some form of magic on the colonies.

So we meet more canon characters. And clearly Helo and Starbuck are several years older. Which we've already discussed before.

Starbuck won't remember him, but Karl might.

Something you'll need to address sooner or later: if both Dobby and Winky make it to the fleet (if the story makes it that far), they are the only members of their species here. Unless you pull some magical answer out of the air, the species is doomed from a purely genetic standpoint.

Fun story. Looking forward to more.

Nice chapter. I'm glad we started seeing some main characters from the series now. Gotta admit, Kara Thrace is my fav, and not just 'cause they changed starbuck to be female. Also liked the development with Harry and Maggie. It'll be interesting to see if that actually goes anywhere.

So, I didn't actually bother to math it out until now, but Harry's going to be approx 27 when the colonies fall to the Cylons? That will make him about the same age as Kara and Lee right, or a tad younger? Hm... I wonder if Harry is going to join flight school and Kara gets involved with him, instead of Zak. That would be a major change, affecting how they both relate to the Adamas, since that means Kara would likely fail Zak, instead of passing him. Heh, Harry, Kara and Lee could become a new "golden trio" of the Galactica.

Well, enough of my theorizing and what not. I look forward to the next chapter. :)

I don't know Battlestar Galactica, but I am enjoying this greatly. I applaud you for not taking the easy way out and having the problem with language. That is hard for authors to do, not Duex Ex Machina or handwave problems away.
