Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Godogma
Review:
Not particularly sure whether or not Cordy's 'tude is actually warranted about Xander and Willow - I remember things about a Cabana boy and I can't recall whether they did or didn't happen or if it was just something she was throwing in Xander's face after the explosion. I didn't find the "fluke" realistic at all on his part and can't really buy how it happened to begin with but in any case it was what we got. XD

It's a good little story, I can see reconciliation from this... Later...
Comments from author:
Neither. It was a smart ass and insecure remark that Xander made in "Anne" to Willow while Cordelia was yet to come back from Mexico with her parents:

"WILLOW: I wonder what she's doing right now.

XANDER: Oh, I know what she's doing. Gabbing to all her friends about her passionate affair with Pedro the cabana boy and laughing about me thinking she might still care about me.
(off Willow's look) It's possible you were talking about Buffy... "

As far as I recall and have been able to find, that's the only mention of "Pedro the Cabana Boy" in canon, and Cordelia never threw anything like that up at Xander or mentioned it on Angel after the Fluke.

Mentions of it actually happening, including mine in "And Another Thing", are pure fanon.

"Not particularly sure whether or not Cordy's 'tude is actually warranted about Xander and Willow -"

I think it is, canonicity wise. I think she went way, way overboard with it and her treatment of Xander later on through the season, especially in her not giving Willow equal amounts of crap - but hey: she was seventeen/eighteen and in love for the first time, probably. Dunno about you, but I was somewhat extreme when I was seventeen. Getting your heart ripped out was painful. ;)

"It's a good little story, I can see reconciliation from this... Later..."

Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. Oh - and a Happy New Year's to you.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Review:
I think I really, really like the fact that Cordy paid enough attention and cared enough even with how angry she was, to go get him.

I liked this very much. Thank you for sharing it :)
Comments from author:
Yup. Although I think it would have taken a kick in the butt like that from Buffy or someone to break through the angst for her and make her slow down and think hard about it. A pity that by season three, Buffy was no longer the girl from season one who *would* have done that...

Thank you, and I hope you had a good Christmas. Glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Cordyfan
Review:
Very nice Christmas story. More would be nice, too, but it works fine as a one-shot.

Thanks for writing this.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SlowMercury
Review:
I really, really liked this. This was the Cordy and Xander still don't really talk about their break-up fic I didn't even know I wanted, and an excellent view into Cordelia's mindset. Great work.

Thank you. :)

Merry Christmas.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)redjacobson
Review:
Good Start to a reconciliation story, but it feels incomplete. Still a nice treat to see this story again, always enjoy X/C goodness, as I'm sure you are well aware.

Comments from author:
Thanks.

It's probably as complete as it's going to get. I added a section in the middle to expand a bit on Cordelia's mindset leading into the section that follows, but I really haven't ever pictured taking it farther. It makes a good standalone as is - leaves it open to the reader's imagination for what comes next.
