Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Loved the "Kill Bill" movies; and you have the character of the Bride, Beatrix Kiddo, nearly spot-on. The emotional dynamic you describe well, and putting a little twist on it at the end -- "No, it may be ironic, but in the end he decided this was one scorned woman who was too bloody to become a vengeance demon." -- seems more than fitting. For D'Hoffryn, it's a twist of the blade that he decides not to recruit her, which would be a good job for Kiddo, who would prefer not to spend eternity wreaking vengeance and havoc on unfaithful men throughout Earth/Terra/Midgard/Arda/whatever you wish to call our homeworld. She only sought vengeance in order to balance the scales against the perceived loss of her unborn child, so it makes sense that killing Bill as opposed to the others in her squad would be rather anticlimactic. His death served as the much-required catharsis after months of gleefully hunting down and sending those she once called friends to the House of Hades; her thirst for blood had finally, incredulously, been quenched, so no, an offer by D'Hoffryn to become one of /his/ circle of assassins would have been rejected out of hand, and justly so.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from Cutiepie
Review:
Never seen the movies (not big on that type) but I enjoyed your story and I hope that many others take up your challenge. It's kind of sad how many "good" challenges never get a single response, but at least yours has your own.
Comments from author:
It was pretty gruesome. Normally I wouldn't have written a challenge just so I could post my own response, but this seemed like the perfect thing to share with other people.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Metron: I warn you a final time; only a twelfth level intellect has even a small hope of survivng what you are about to experience.

Lex: Then I'm overqualified!



Personally; I expect Beatrix Kiddo would have been able to do a vengeance demon's duties subtly when she wanted to. But the fact remains that she's overqualified and has absolutely no "overkill" limit, so D'Hoffryn was making a hard call and may have been correct in doing it.
Comments from author:
After watching her fight the '88', I don't think I'd want her on my side or against me. I'd just go to a different dimension if it was possible.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Loved it!!

Also:
A dangerous thing to do, but given how deadly Beatrix was, the girl wouldn’t stand a chance…unless she received some supernatural power-up.

--Now I have this plot bunny of the girl becoming a Slayer after S7 and she goes rogue, leading Buffy/the others to track her down before she can kill Beatrix and her daughter.

For fun we could say it was KenKen and let her die anyway.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from (Current Donor)SamuraiCatFan
Review:
Very enjoyable. D'Hoffyn clearly has enough familiarity with the Evil Overlord Handbook to not hire a minion who would be a substantial threat to his own job.

If you are familiar with Roger Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber, there is a case to be made that Beatrix Kiddo is an Amberite based on her miraculous survival, recovery and sheer level of lethality. Add her almost inborn sense of vengeance, and she shares all of the necessary family traits.

Maybe he wrote that particular rule.

Review:
Yeah, she would be too good at her job.

she might even take over his position herself one day.
Comments from author:
I could see her going to Quor-Toth and becoming its ruler.

Tee-hee! I love D'Hoffryn, & I love him being worried that The Bride may take his place one day! LOL

If you've seen her fight, you'd understand his concerns.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
D’Hoffryn's no fool and I don't blame him for not taking on Beatrix, most especially considering the means of advancement in Arashmahar.

As usual, Musie has a great feel for what makes a good crossover. Thanks for sharing this, I greatly enjoyed it!
Comments from author:
Thanks. The crossover seemed to fit in my mind, so I'm glad others agree.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from NeverTooOld
Review:
B would never become a vengeance demon, she clearly believes that vengeance properly belongs to the injured party, and if you can't get it yourself, you don't deserve it. Besides, D'Hoffryn is right about just how dangerous she would be to him...one mistake and he would be on her list, the short one.
Comments from author:
Good point. She might train somebody so they could get their own revenge, but she'd never do it for them.

Review of chapter "The Bride’s Vengeance" from Harry
Review:
A interesting premise. And I think that D'Hoffram was right. Sooner or later, she would have caused problems with the rest of the demons.
Comments from author:
She'd scare the crap out of the other demons.
