Review of chapter "Serenity" from highlanderfanatic
Review:
Oh, this was great! Buffy and Firefly are two of my favorite shows. If you decided to write another, perhaps longer story, know that I'd be one of your first reviewers :) I really like the whole Buffy as an Alliance assassin idea. Five years? That'd break anyone. Anyways, nice idea and I loved the interaction between Mal and Buffy. Thanks!

Thanks! I just really liked the idea of Mal and Buffy and the chemistry and then after watching Serenity, I started wondering what the Alliance would do to someone like Buffy if they got their hands on her and this ficlet was born. I did contemplate a longer multi-chaptered fic but with my commitments to First Knight to finish and the fact that it would likely languish due to lack of free time. I might come back to the idea in the future but for now, ficlets are about as much as I can manage in this fandom.

Anyway, thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Serenity" from Iceflame
Review:
This is VERY good. I have some fondness for fics where Buffy's been pushed too far past the line marked "Normal, Sane Slayer" and yet she manages to retain some sense of what she was :-D. By the way, when do you think you're going to be updating your other stories? I'm in the middle of some EXTREMELY painful withdrawal pains!!!!!
Comments from author:
Thanks. I like dark!Buffy too. There's something about all the power of the Slayer becoming expodentially more dangerous when the line between sanity and insanity begins to blur. Everything is chaos and that's exciting. I always liked the idea of being forced to change so that your past self might not even recognise you but still retaining some of what they were. It kinda amplifies the horror of it I think.

Review of chapter "Serenity" from onlimain
Review:
This was great, from what I understood of it. (I've never seen 'Firefly' or 'Serenity', so everything I know about 'Firefly' is from fanfic. It's on my Christmas wishlist.) What did River mean when she said no one tried to save Buffy? Does it mean no one could, or no one really didn't try? And I hope River didn't really mean it when she said no one could put Buffy back together again. I'm always rooting for Buffy to pull through- no matter how long it takes- and beat the bad guy. I can't really imagine her as an Alliance assassin, but maybe that's what Buffy meant: in the end, she wanted to live, and so, became an assassin. Will she eventually be healed, or will that only happen in death? I know this is just a one-shot, but it leaves so many questions. Although, I don't really want to know what the Alliance did to her in order to break her. What I can imagine is already bad enough. With what your evil mind is capable of... I *really* don't want to know. I'll be looking forward to your next chapter of 'First Knight'.

Thanks. If you want to check out Firefly the Series, they have downloads of the episodes at this address. http://versaphile.com/download/firefly.html. That's where I got the series from after seeing 'Serenity'. About what River said, it was really a combination of both. And this fic started out as a question, a what if the Alliance broke Buffy question? Nobody can resist forever. It was meant to be a dark little one-shot, with no happy ending. And leaving the readers with questions was an objective. Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Serenity" from EricThorsen
Review:
Okay, for what it is (a snap-shot) this is a pretty good fic... My only wish is that it could have been longer and we could have had some look at how the alliance got hold of Buffy, things like that. You jumped in a little to late in the story for my tastes.
Comments from author:
I know it could have been longer but if i had, it might have ended up as the start of a full-blown fic and I have too much on my plate right now. this was just meant to be a one-shot. My muse was bugging me and I just had to get it out of my system. Glad you liked.

Review of chapter "Serenity" from CPTSkip
Review:
Now this is a truly chilling horror story. Excellent job with the characterizations and feel of the Serenity universe. I can just hope the Buffy of your story dies soon so she can be back with the Scoobies once again.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I definitely meant it to be a horror fic. A kind of 'what if?' fic.

Review of chapter "Serenity" from Vld
Review:
Okay, is it AU or is Buffy the Buffy we know of? The ol' "Died twice, faced... and beat the First, Angelus, Glory, etc... and fired the Council? Either way, I'd really like to know how that happened.
Comments from author:
Oh, it's the Buffy we know of. And while I have my own plan of what happened, sometimes it's far more scary when it's left up to the imagination ...

Review of chapter "Serenity" from Waterfall
Review:
This was chilling and really, really bleak - well done! It's perfect as a one-shot, and when I got to the end I had to start again from the top so I could read it with a new insight. You should probably think about getting a beta, though; I spotted some mistakes while reading (can't remember what they were now, sorry) and some places you chould have chosen different words. And perhaps the whole story shouldn't be in bold, it kind of screams at you. But this is mostly nitpicking, the story itself was amazing.
Comments from author:
Thanks. And I really don't have a beta for any of my fics. I kinda just post them as I finish them. What can I say? My muse is Evil enough for me to cope with! And about the whole bold thing, I know! But for some reason, the site wouldn't let me load a pre-formatted chapter. I had to just cut and paste it in and for some reason it came out like this! (shrugs)

Review of chapter "Serenity" from Duchess
Review:
Well it's kinda hard to review when you have no clue what is supposed to have happened. Betrayal, yes, you said that, but HOW? The vignette is far too vague. A paragraph or two explaining the bare bones of what is supposed to have taken place, in flashback maybe, would suffice. I'd be more than willing to give you a proper review then. :)
Comments from author:
It was supposed to be very vague. I wanted to leave what happened up to the reader's imaginations.
