Author's Afterword

There's a lot of people to thank for this.

First, the gang at the Cross and Stake board, who encouraged me in my first fanfic efforts, and helped me get up to speed on the Buffyverse.

Then the reviewers who found this on and stuck with it for the past year.

Mandolin deserves a major-league shout for helping me break a four-month logjam and get rolling on this again in the fall of 2002.

Then, of course, there's Celli, and through her, the Horsechicks of the Apocalypse, for encouragement, good vibes as they found out who this loon was who'd popped up in their midst, and especially in Celli's case, for helping me through the last parts of writing this story.

Of course, there's a list of people to thank who probably would be just as happy if I'd never written a word of this...

Larry Bagby III as Larry
Voice Two as himself
Carmen Argenziano as Jacob Carter
Don S. Davis as General Hammond
Bailey Chase as Graham
Kristine Sutherland as Joyce
Emma Caulfield as Anya
Marc Blucas as Riley
Amber Benson as Tara
James Marsters as Spike
Christopher Judge as Teal'c
Nicholas Brendon as Xander
Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson
Alyson Hannigan as Willow
Amanda Tapping as Samantha Carter
Anthony Stewart Head as Giles
Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O'Neill
Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy

If they hadn't played the parts, and played them well, there would have been nothing on which to base the characters.

And of course, one cannot forget the team of Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin for coming up with the concept of the Stargate, or Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner for turning it into superior television.

Not to mention the creative godhood that is Joss Whedon.

Thank you, one and all, and let's be careful out there.

Signing off,
