Just discovered and started your story. Interesting concept, I suggest to everyone they find an editor, beta, or just someone to read their stories with fresh eyes. It helps catch errors.

I hope that you may continue it.

You should have made sure he is going to continue to rewrite it. It appears from both that site and his FFN site that they storyline The Origins of Magic has been abandon.

good luck with collage, hope it goes well for you.
looking forward to the continuation of the story when you get a chance
would be an interesting twist if you could connect SGC to the Wizard world in the US and use it as a resource against Voldie and Dumbles

This story has alot of potential but i get the feeling your throwing to much "awesume" in to it without developing it. Why would they need all those shield or those special wands you make them waay to powerfull without letting them work for it.
I feels like your trying to fill and all ready full box off powers and just keeping to invent new ones. Hopefully you wont take this as flame because i really did enjoy reading it but it would be better if you spent abit more time to develop the powers they already have and investigate what their alteran heritage already gave them.

I'd just like to point out that chrisnewberry's version of this fic is actually on this site as well as
I'll agree that it is a good start, but is admittedly not too dissimilar to your own version. Either way, I've enjoyed both your fics so I hope you both continue this fic and update as soon as you can.
p.s. it is mega confusing when reading them both coz I read chrisnewberry's version straight after reading yours and I got major deja-vu.

Members of FFN that are revolting against the mass purge of stories that has been happening. Please read and understand this: I support you. I understand what you are going through, but VIOLATING THE TOS and GUIDELINES that we have all agreed to is NOT the answer. You are, instead, further the deletion of your own stories. Please, please reconsider posting this petition as a story chapter. Please take a moment to read the Guidelines and TOS to be sure you know exactly what you are protesting.
Since 2002 FFN banned the Fiction Rating MA which is defined as "contains explicit material FOR ADULTS ONLY" which, as some of you may know, is similar to the movie rating NC-17. Before 2002 you could post all the fictional porn you damn well wanted on this site. I remember back then, when I first unearthed FFN, that they had a system in place that WARNED you the content you desired to read was for 18 and older. You had to click YES.
Now there is no warning in place and as such there is no setup to PROTECT FFN from the furious parents. All that sex and porn related stories on this site are out in the open for CHILDREN who should not, in any manner of the word, read porn. Oh sure you have ten year olds hunting down porn sites, its normal, and parents don't always monitor what their children do on the internet, but the fact remains. FFN is LIABLE for all this stuff you put up because they have no system set in place to make their asses covered.
The Ratings Violations are a big problem on this site. We may not know or wish to recognize this, but this "purge" has long been coming. What you need to understand is this: If you want CHANGE then DO NOT BREAK THE RULES for it. That only makes things worse. Notes or non-story content are not allowed as story chapters. This is a basic Guideline which has remained unchanged since 2008. People violate this every day, and I understand the need to keep in touch with your readers. However this won't change, and FFN won't add in any more ways to keep in touch or will even change their guidelines, without prompting from you.
THIS MEANS THE FOLLOWING instead of copying the protest and placing it in your stories, copy it and e-mail it to support AT fanfiction DOT net where it SHOULD go. Try and make suggestions for ways the site could be better, such as a way to protest violation claims, or to have violations claims made clearer. For the area that violates the TOS and GUIDELINES to be highlighted and to have time given to CORRECT the violation. Sometimes we violate the rules and we don't even realize it.
The letter that has been going around has made other, wonderful suggestions. Such as making FFN entirely members only. That upon signing up you MUST give your age, which will then restrict what levels of story you could read. That stories can only be READ by members. Membership, of course, would be free. This would do away with "anonymous" reviews that leave you unable to get in contact with your reviewers, and help lower spam. The membership could come with an outright disclaimer and mention that some content within may be inappropriate for children, thus covering FFN's asses on the legal end. Then the site could, perhaps, allow the return of the MA rating and clear a good portion of the stories on this site that happen to be in violation.
I URGE YOU ALL to stop reposting the letter you are finding as chapters. It is not going to help. IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE GUIDELINES even. Instead send them your thoughts and your protest to support AT fanfiction DOT net That way your voice will be heard. That way your protest will count.

Um, just a note: the birthdays you have given here for the girls are impossible. According to them, Astoria is only 2-1/2 months younger than Daphne, not 11, which is a physical impossibility. (Magic might make a difference, but I imagine there would be a lot of issues with it, considering it would involve either *considerable* manipulation of the mother's body, or serious time manipulation, and neither would seem to have a logical basis behind it.)
