Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from HeatherKat
Review:
Well this is one of the most unique and interesting Buffy crossover that I have ever read! It was a fascinating tale of a forgotten slayer and it made me cry. Excellent writing :-)

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from starshinedown
Review:
Oh, you've made a character I'm otherwise indifferent to a character I wholly sympathize with. Thank you for that! Recasting Mary as a Slayer is brilliant.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I always thought she got the short end of the stick, so I decided to give her her own history.

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from (Recent Donor)curiouslywombat
Review:
I'm not sure how I managed to not review this when I read it first - especially as I have recced it to more than one person since!

However - I think this is really excellent - the perfect explanation of the enigma that is Mary Bennett.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed. Nice to get comments so long afterward.

Review:
Ohh.. Wow.. Now I feel all guilty for ignoring Mary xD Gorgeous story, unexpectedly good crossover :D
Comments from author:
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed! I think Jane Austen meant for you to ignore Mary, I wouldn't worry about it ;)

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from MiffyD
Review:
Beautiful story! I always felt Mary Bennet was treated too unfairly. I love the relationship between Mr.Phillip and Mary! Good job!
Comments from author:
Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed. I also felt she wasn't exactly a.... rounded character.

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from amusewithaview
Review:
This made tears come to my eyes.

Bravo.
Comments from author:
I'm both glad and sad that it did! It was the reaction I'd hoped to evoke and afraid to at the same time.

Thank you so much!

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from Nosi
Review:
This was beautifully done. It's a very clever and unique idea and you gave us some lovely snippets of Mary's life. The ending however was very sad. Such a shame it couldn't have ended differently, but I guess not, given the subject matter. Very well executed.
Comments from author:
I mean, there was no way that Mary could live longer than she did. Because Buffy was very long-lived and I thought I made Mary almost TOO long lived.

I had been throwing around the idea of historical characters as slayers in my head, but this one fit best.

Thank you so much, I am glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from Ddraig
Review:
Great idea for a crossover. I always thought that Mary was a dark horse, if only she was given the chance to show it.

Thanks for sharing!
Comments from author:
Thanks for enjoying! She was, wasn't she? I thought "slayerness" and the pile of dung that comes along with it would be a great way to flesh her out.

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from redrikki
Review:
That was brilliant. It should have been silly, but instead it came off as beautifully touching and tragic in that wonderful Jane Austin tone.
Comments from author:
Thanks very much! I knew it could've been silly, but I made a distinct effort for it not to be. She maybe lived longer than she should have, but I knew her life had to be as tragic as any other slayer's. Glad you enjoyed.

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Very well done indeed. Brilliant idea for a xover. I have to say that I've never read P&P or watched any of the TV/movie adaptations. I simply read this because I thought it was an interesting idea...and I'm glad I did.

Well done once more,

All the best DaveT.
Comments from author:
Thanks very much! I've come into different fandoms doing what you did. I've had this same idea for several different fandoms, but this is the first I've executed with any satisfaction. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Review of chapter "Borrowed Time" from IntheIndigo
Review:
Totally unexpected, but I loved it. She was the perfect person to use from the Jane Austen books.
Comments from author:
I find it's always easiest to use the person that we don't know much about for this sort of thing, but I think it really worked for Mary in particular as well.

Thanks for reading and glad you enjoyed!
