Was enjoying the story until the Scoobies rolled over and were open to playing house with the Wizarding World. Willow has read Hermione's Book, she's read the history. Warcrimes were committed against an unsuspecting Mundane population who the Slayers and Watchers are gaurdians of, by Supernatural foes (I.E. Witches and Wizards) which fall under the ICSW Purview. Neither the Magical community nor the Ministry has made any reparations or any significant change to make restitution. It's like it was forgoten and swept away! The ICSW should have a serious problem with the Magical Community, period. Because magicals at the least condoned and then swept it under the rug and forgot about what they allowed to happen on their watch. How many tens of thousands of Non-Magicals were slaughtered and murdered during the Second War? Deaths that were blamed on gas leaks and freak storms and accidents?

Is there going to be a Stargate twist, or are you just funnin' me on? Been a while since updates and had to read from the beginning, but it was worth it. Look forward to another update sometime.

uh oh, pulling in a third crossover with your Astra Porta... I honestly don't like it. Stargate, despite its' many dues ex machina solutions to impossible situations, is a show based on hard science, while at least HP and BtVS are shows based on magic- which is far easier to fuse together. The only decent SG-BtVS crossover that really works that i've read is called Fates Little Play Thing which is on Twisting the hellmouth site...
As far as this story is concerned- the first chapter was brilliant, but then the entire story just kind of fell flat, week and more of a crack fic than anything else, rather than what it could have been if the appearance spell was just that, appearances only... Would have made for two equally interesting parallel stories- one where a magical HP (who think's he's Alexander Harris) grows up in Sunnydale and becomes friend's with Willow (but only possibly- they're different people with different personalites) and a Alexander Harris who think's he's HP only for him to, upon recieving the owl letter, go "WTF, i've done anything weird in my life..." and that's where Dumbles would soon figure out that it wasn't HP living with the Dursleys... he's not stupid, and would have probably figured it out. What happens next would get real interesting- and would be up to you.
So yeah, while this story had promise, I honestly don't think you've lived up to it. One of my largest complaints here is that you've set the entire story post all big bads as it were- not challenges for them to deal with, so beyond the meet and greet, there's nothing to hold them together- not drawing me as a reader into the story with some nice ominous hints... unless you really are crossing this story over with SG... which as I said is a little tricky given that the magic of BtVS and HP really don't give at all with the hard science and technology based verse...

Oh the wacky world of magic. Certainly keeps life full of humor and hijinks. Until next time.

Great to see more of this, and enjoying the way things are playing out, though Hermione came across a bit hard headed, though she wouldn't be Hermione if she didn't LOL, and will be looking forward to what all might happen next time as more plans are made.

Clever. Very, very clever indeed.

I wanted to ask if you were planning to continue this story?
| borg rabbit 1/11/11 . chapter 9

Great fun there, and enjoyed seeing how the gang continues to make their own way, and will look forward to what comes of this new discovery that Willow told them about, and how things will turn out from that point on?

Wait, why do they need to use the Draconian Katra to switch bodies? Their not in the wrong bodies, their REAL bodies changed shape on them against their wills.
The bodies still belong to them, just their appearances are now different. If they know of a body switching spell, can't Willow come up with a spell that can just give Harry and Xander back the appearances they both grew up with, without having to 'switch bodies'. *lol* Their bodies might look different now, but what about Ginny and Harry's baby? Harry/Xander's bodies DNA is completely different than Xander/Harry's isn't it? So if anyone did a magical paternity test on the kid, and any future kids the two have, who's name will show up on the fathers side if they do the body switch? Plus since he's legally no longer even harry Potter in the magical world is his marriage to Ginny still legal since he probably can't even use that name anymore, now that the 'real' Harry Potter is found?
Especially since Harry/Xander is now legally no longer being seen as Harry Potter now, even by the goblins. *lol* Can't Xander/Harry go to Gringotts and tell them that as the newly found rightful heir to the Potter fortune, he wants them to stop what their doing before they try and bankrupt Harry/Xander for 'stealing from them' when the poor guy didn't even know the truth himself until recently? *lol* They shouldn't fine him, with interest, since he's as much a victim in all this as the real Harry Potter is.

YAY! I was thinking you might have decided to no longer update, but I'm super-excited. So 'mione knows about the Slayer, huh? I can't wait for Harry to be floored. XD

Almost anticlimactic given the forces involved in this small "exchange". Laughed hard at that last question. Oh the irony . . .
Until next time.
