Review of chapter "Angel's Lie" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Nicely done.

As for arrogance, that came after the un and re souling.

Basically, before he laid Buffy and got all Angelus again, Angel was guilt stricken and unsure he even deserved trust or friendships, not to mention he was coming off decades of hermitage and living off wildlife and rats and what-have-you.

Simply put, his remaining pride dictated his silence.

After watching the flashbacks of Angel's life post-ensouling, I have to admit, I don't understand what the writers were doing with him. It seemed so disjointed and contradictory at times.

Review of chapter "Angel's Lie" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Compression-only CPR can be performed without mouth-to-mouth contact, excellent for, say, Rogue.

However, something important to note: Both Rogue and Angel have super-strength. It's hard enough not to crack ribs in a regular situation so they could easily dust someone's insides unless they had training above and beyond that of normal humans.

In the past four years they've invented a new method: http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/09/21/us-cpr-effective-idUSKUA17353820070921 Rhythmic abdominal compression, which avoids both the above issues, however it's much newer than Buffy Season 1... So, I go with the theory that if Angel hadn't avoided CPR his unchecked strength could've made her even deader :D

... Also: "I can't touch her, because I'm afraid I'll break her." Is *not* something that you want to tell Xander if you're counting on him to do it without added panic ;)
Comments from author:
He could have assisted Xander somehow. I think the writers were just goofy when they wrote that scene. That or they weren't thinking clearly.

Review:
I always figured he didn't know CPR... but why lie? That's just idiotic. He was always an arrogant bastard.

'Cause admitting that would be showing weakness to Xander?

Review of chapter "Angel's Lie" from Harry
Review:
LOL! Well, that explains why Angel never tried to revive Buffy! And I think that Angel is going to have to do a LOT of apologizing to Xander for all the things he has said about him.
Comments from author:
Eh, they are even in the crappy things said to each other department.
