Review of chapter "Worth Waiting For" from DearestDrusilla
Review:
I want more. This is amazingly written and I like the idea you went with for this. A shame it's only a one shot.

Review of chapter "Worth Waiting For" from RevDorothyL
Review:
that's a really credible way to account for Lacy's situation, and I'm really glad you wrote this. Yes, Charisma's characters got short-changed in both AtS in the end and in the "Expendables" (though I've not seen the sequel, and I don't remember if she and Jason Statham's character got back together in the first movie).
Comments from author:
It's kind of left up in the air there, but she has a similarly brief amount of minutes in the sequel, and they're clearly together (Barney razzes Lee about taking her back; but he's all smiles). Still, she very much exists only to simultaneously give Lee macho points, expose a little of his softer side, and defuse the homoeroticness of all the guy bonding time. I had to give her a little agency of her own. =)

Review of chapter "Worth Waiting For" from BlueEyedBrigadier
Review:
I think this is a great one-shot, though similar to all the other "Expendables" crossovers where Charisma Carpenter's Lacy is featured, but I like that there's still the Cordy we love underneath and she's not regressed to the days where shallow was her MO. Yeah, the sequel does make her Lacy rather needy but not every character an actor or actress plays is going to be perfect...that and I think you can definitely fill in the bumps by having Lacy/Cordy care that Lee a champion in his own right (though far from a white knight since he's a merc) and the history she has with Xander and Angel gives her experience with guys who choose to deal with the scum of the earth in the name of keeping things spinning ;P

Review of chapter "Worth Waiting For" from ShyBob
Review:
I appreciated the little details of this snapshot of Cordy's new existence, with all the little imperfections totally selling the story. I liked this spin much more than the movie, 'cause I've got a soft spot for "self-rescuing princesses."

Review of chapter "Worth Waiting For" from Ddraig
Review:
I have just seen Expendables 2 - good film - but Lacy Ames gets a pretty rough character bashing in it (I know I know, testosterone-male POV). This, this is my canon. In this world, I wonder what those phone calls were really about... *grin*

Review of chapter "Worth Waiting For" from Gideon
Review:
I hope Cordy realises no good man will thank her for introducing him to zombies. She better keep a big ole machete handy for when those throwing knives don't work :)
