Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Letomo
A lovely little piece. Very introspective, and a nice look at the possible future of Marcie, one of the 'mouse' characters of Buffy.

I must have missed this when it was originally posted. It's very good, and I'm adding it to my recs.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Pax
Really glad to see that you're back!
This was beautiful. I liked the pairing and Ari's introspection was very spot on.
When you made the Rumpelstiltskin reference I immediately thought not of the fairy tale but of the Anne Sexton poem by the same name:
"I am the law of your members,
the kindred of blackness and impulse.
See. Your hand shakes.
It is not palsy or booze.
It is your Doppelganger
trying to get out.
Beware . . . Beware . . "
I liked that Ari is whistful somewhere deep inside even if he doesn't really care, or can't make himself.
Marci is a great character, because really she is so damaged and morally ambivalent (at least from her one BtVS appearance) that her journey must be fascinating. Great to see a glimpse of her.
Comments from author:
A very fitting poem for both of them, I think. The man (or woman) at risk of being consumed by their monsters.
Thanks for taking the time to review my little experiment! :)
