Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Kovac
Review:
Funny and very well-written. I enjoyed reading all of these stories set in the Cordyverse. Hope you'll had some more.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for taking the time to review. I love the Cordyverse, but don't currently have any stories in the works. You might take a look at "Thaw", one of the best AU/Cordyverse type fic out there. http://www.angelfire.com/my/abtfanfic/dazzle/thaw.htm

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Very neat!
Comments from author:
Thanks. Got inspired when Joss got the Wonder Woman project. Now that it's been handed off to someone else (and downgraded to television) I don't think we'll see our favorite brunette with a lasso after all.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Cordyfan
Review:
I love this entire series (it's about my favourtie girl, after all). I don't think I've read anything else with this particular "road not taken" angle. Like a lot of people, I hate what Joss did to the character in series 4 Angel. Up to that point, she'd grown enormously as a person - one who was demonstrably more capable of self-sacrifice than some of the Scoobies (Xander?) Then she's hijacked by evil and killed off, with only a brief appearance in series 5 to supposedly draw a line - and then the evil Joss kills off another good female character (sorry - rant over).

Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
I realize that there were filming conflicts going on with Charisma Carpenter being pregnant in real life, still...for someone who's supposedly a feminist, Joss sure goes out of his way to whack a lot of his strong female characters. We see it in all of his shows except Firefly, and I'm sure he would've done it there if the show continued :(

You're right that the Birthday AU is seriously under-explored. I think people may be tapped out with all the Wish-verse fic, or don't want to play in a sandbox where Angel is a thundering loony again. At any rate, the best fic that falls into the Birthday genre (although it doesn't take off from that episode) is an older fic called 'Thaw' by Dazzle. Drops you into the middle of an AU, but it takes the reader (and Cordy) a little while to figure out what's going on. Seriously great, novella-length stuff.

Oh, and thanks for the review. It seems like Cordy doesn't get a lot of love on this site. Very unfortunate. We'll have to be the little flag-wavers :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from FireWolfe
Review:
I like it. Nice to see Cordy dream coming true. I hated the her and Angel pairing and the way she was used with Connor and the Jasmine arch was really bad but she was a decent character in the BTVS show and deserved more then the Angel BS. I loved her and Doyle as a pair the rest of the archs were just bad. Well done love to see more.
Comments from author:
I agree, Cordy's part in the Jasmine story arc was just awful. I think Joss and company could have done much better. I have a soft spot for authors and stories that have Cordy kicking but with a side-order of snarkiness...as long as she doesn't get paired up with Gunn (he belongs with Anne).
