I must have missed these previously - always a Drabble fan, enjoying them a lot.

Review of chapter "3 - Picture of Dorian Grey and 4 -Thor" from clarityfades
Why is Buffy so sex-obsessed in these drabbles? What happened to her (in your Buffy 'verse) to change her into someone who only thinks about sex (since she wasn't this way in canon)? Just doesn't seem like there's any real attempt to write Buffy in character, which is a shame given these are only drabbles.
Comments from author:
Several points (in no particular order).

1 - none of these drabbles connect to anything else. Not to each other, not to any other ongoing story that I have in my WiP's or completed sections. The Buffy of drabble #1 is not the same Buffy as the Buffy in drabble #4 or #2 or #8 (not yet written)

There are a variety of reasons why I'm doing these, which fall under a slightly modified response to the 10-100 challenge -> 10 drabbles each of 100 words for a BtVS or AtS character, with each drabble being a different fandom. a: it is a short way to try a character that I may not have used much, if at all (D'Hoffryn. Devon. Tara.) b: I do not do well with the deliberately short format, and I am hoping that these various drabbles may help me improve that. Seriously - I don't drabble well. c: I've enjoyed the challenge of thinking up ten different ways to do a crossover with _____ and then trying not to have too much overlap with the other 10-100 drabble sets that I've written.

I am well aware that I have difficulty writing Buffy. This isn't because I don't like her, or because I wasn't watching the series - I like her as well as several other characters, and much better than some. I am well aware that there are a good many other things that Buffy can do other than end up with an unfortunate and possibly dangerous boyfriend/lover. Trying to capture Buffy doing something else that is both a crossover and complete in 100 words - not going so well for me.

Part of my reasoning for doing these drabbles -a writing form that I'm not good at - with Buffy - whom I don't write well - is the hope that making myself write Buffy will help me figure her out better, possibly inspire something that can become a longer fic, and try out a potential crossover to see if it would be something that I'd even want to try in a longer version.

David (of LostBoys) thinking he can twist Buffy round his finger? Could work as a fic, though not as he expects.
The Merovingian (of Matrix Revolutions) - no. Just... no.
Buffy and Dorian Grey - ehhhh. I can't see me writing it, but I can see how it could become a workable story.
Buffy and Thor - a bit of fighting, a bit of Slaying, some flirting and Buffy baffling Thor - yes, I can see that. Can I see myself writing it? hmm... maybe. And Thor's Hammer (Mjollnr) is supposed to be the work of dwarven mastersmiths, so I bet is IS a really nice hammer.

If it helps, drabbles 5 and 6 are up, and contain no sex or mentions of Buffy's love-life.

Review of chapter "Drabbles 1 (Lost Boys) and 2 (Matrix: Revolutions)" from (Past Donor)Kiwikatipo
drabbles are sucky,

Buffy and the Lost Boys had the potential for a great short story that I hope you might write one day
Comments from author:
I normally have trouble with drabbles, but I wanted to try them as a way of trying to write different characters. In this case, Buffy - because I have the darndest time writing the blond Slayer as a main character. I was hoping that a little effort a bit of practice might help. So far, not so much.

I do have a BtVS/Lost Boys storyline in progress that involves Buffy, though not from her PoV - and the developing pairing is Buffy/Micheal (the half-vampire).
