Review of chapter "A Talent for Vengeance" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Review:
Neat! I like it. Very awesome, as well as very well-written, too. Also, I can see D'Hoffryn trying to recruit a guy such as Bruce Wayne/Batman into becoming a demon that grants wishes for scorned men just as he recruited Anya into becoming the Patron Saint for Scorned Women, too. :)

After all, 17-century author William Congreve wrote,
"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned,
Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."

I cannot agree more there, of course. Now, we simply change "woman" to "spouse" or "troubled ex-boyfriend" and it shows that even men can be and are scorned sometimes themselves, too. Now, people have found that unlike most women, who feel empathy for their enemies once they get revenge, men have a greater desire for getting back at their enemies and take more pleasure in it.

Keep up your super-neat, very creative and phenomenally beautiful writing! :)

Review of chapter "A Talent for Vengeance" from peppymint
Review:
I would love to see a sequel to this. There is no way Bruce would agree in this situation. But, if it came down to sacrificing himself for the power to save everyone else. Well, that would be different.

Review:
*snicker*

There's something funny about Bats being able to identify demons by smell.

Review of chapter "A Talent for Vengeance" from (Past Donor)AmarinRose
Review:
Oh, wow. This was just great. A sublime use of characters; D'Hoffryn would sense how close to the line Batman is, and Batman would hold onto it no matter what the cost.

Short, sweet, and it fits both characters perfectly something that I'm delighted to find in all of your writing.

Review of chapter "A Talent for Vengeance" from TimeTwist
Review:
Great story, and Batman was completely in character. There are few other characters that I can see D'Hoffryn trying to approach, but most of the ones I can think of would attempt to kill him rather than talk, several very violently. Which wouldn't make much of a story. Which why Batman worked so well.

Review of chapter "A Talent for Vengeance" from LadyYueh
Review:
[claps with glee]

Fantastic!

I'm very amused by the image of D'Hoffryn as a cheesy recruiter. Even moreso when Batman just shuts him down effortlessly. And repeatedly.

'Tis a thing of beauty.

Great job!

Review of chapter "A Talent for Vengeance" from Lucinda
Review:
(big grin) lovely. I particularly like the way Batman is so consistent with what I know of him - dark & determined, and he doesn't need supernatural power to do his job, thank you very much. Now stop interfering with him trying to do his job... And D'Hoffryn persistently trying to recruit him.

Thank you for this great ficlet.
