Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Albatross
I really enjoyed this story...very interesting fic....but I was wondering if you knew that the poem you included at the end of the story was actually about a man trying to convince a woman to have sex with him while she was still young and full of beauty...and not actually about his love for her, which I think you thought it meant.
Comments from author:
Yes - I was aware of that, I studied Marvell and the Shakespearean/Stuart poets in some depth. But really the poem is about desire and seizing the moment, and desire is (or should be) as much a part of a relationship as love is. The fact that Marvell wrote the poem for his mistress does not prevent it from acting just as validly as a spur to a relationship and love as it does on a more purely carnal level. And if you believe that poetry only works on the level that it is written you should read Twelfth Night or Hawk Roosting by Ted Hughes.

As a general rule I don't quote anything I don't understand the context of.

But I am glad you enjoyed the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)Catlimere
Beautifully done! You have such an awesome ability to weave a spell and capture the reader. I love, and hate, the idea of Buffy as patient zero. Love, because it's a great idea and her meeting David (Jason), the two of them having such a perfect understanding of the other, a real connection. Hate because you know she didn't volunteer to be part of the program and you know the terror she must have felt during and then afterwards, feeling adrift, alone and like she's lost her mind. Has to be terrifying to be all alone and afraid of yourself, what you could do. Loved the fight, the instincts both still have, the conditioning they'll likely never escape but the two of them have adapted and overcome. Finding a peace with each other they wouldn't find elsewhere. Beautiful story, great pairing (even if I'm not a Matt Damon fan, lol).

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)Smurfette
You've had Buffy with Bond and now Buffy with the antiBond. I love you. This was wonderful and dark and Buffy and Bourne and she's calling him David and oh. I haven't seen Ultimatum -- it doesn't open in Australia until next week -- but I can't wait and you've made me want to see it even more.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Yojo
Very nicely composed, but you really need to work on your run-on sentences. You keep going and going, flowing over one unending topic; you really need to break your sentences up. Aside from that, great idea.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)exiled
As always I love your writing and the concepts behind the story. I like your emotional style of writing, how you place the emotions first then the action second. Though, the physical action in this story had much more pronounced place then in all your other stories.

Sadly, once again, I'm left with wanting more. More of this story and more of your stories.

Thank you for sharing your time, talent, and vision.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Very nice job with both Buffy and David. And both were alive when your story ended. I wasn't sure who was going to make it for a while there. Lol!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Moderator)Ava
That was wonderful and absolutely believable. I thoroughly enjoyed their 'sparring' session and your attention to detail was nicely attentive without being overly wordy or dragging.

Thank you for sharing, I shall be rec'ing this!
