Review of chapter "Chosen" from (Past Donor)houses
Review:
Very interesting, nicely done, what a punch at the end. An unusual take on Spuffy, but one I enjoyed immensely, and is most logical given the starting conditions for the crossover.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

Honestly, I'm not particularly a fan of Spike/Buffy, so I normally wouldn't write much in the lines of it. But the way it unfolded for the series, it can work effectively for UST, angst, darkfics.... the painful stuff.

I wrote this in an effort to deal with a case of personal angst, considering that post s5 Buffy (the character, not the series) was perfect for angst and the angsty situation of Marie... I could add them together and make things even more painful. I did use some of the comics-history for Rogue, where a similar incedent happened to her (the victim was Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel), and that's why ComicRogue could fly, bench press cars, ect. She absorbed everything from Ms Marvel, including memories and picking up a second personality (which was later removed).

considering the circumstances, I was quite satisfied with this little angsty piece.

Review of chapter "Chosen" from Cutiepie
Review:
So . . . absorbing the slayer powers overroad Marie's mutation, or what? How is it that she can touch Spike without any effect? Because while the body isn't alive, per se, the demon that controls it certainly is. Therefore, I would expect her mutation to pull on the demon just as it does with a human. Or has it been established somewhere that she can only affect humans? I was never quite clear on that. Rather a dark story, and it left me feeling down. But the writing was good. =]
Comments from author:
the only person that she was touching safely in the ficlet was Spike. Vampires/demons never came up in the movie version, so i was forced to make use of the comics information for Rogue. In the comics, she has been unable to drain from nonliving - androids, vampires, and robotic nonsentient constructions. There were also nonhumans (generally aliens) that she found harder/slower to absorb from.

And in all honesty, it was supposed to be a dark and painful story, written because I was feeling really down. But I do thank you for saying that the writing is good.

Review of chapter "Chosen" from Zira
Review:
Oooh, scary-sweet. Weird. What happened to Buffy? Is she dead?
Comments from author:
Yes. Just to be completely clear on this, Bobby (Iceman and Marie's sort-of boyfriend) was killed in the initial attack, and Buffy (the real one) died from too much contact from Marie and was effectively absorbed. She's probably got a nice little plot and a tombstone.

No, this was not intended as a happy little story, though it is a single-shot.

Review of chapter "Chosen" from (Moderator)JoeHundredaire
Review:
Not a bad trade for Spike. At least Marie has some curves to her. ;)
Comments from author:
lol.....

yeah, Spike's not nearly as upset by this change of situation as Marie thinks he is....

and while she certainly wasn't the way I'd always thought of Rogue, Marie was/is quite pretty.
