Review of chapter "Inspiration" from Dianasis
A very beautiful and touching story. Every time I read one of your Daniel/Buffy stories I find myself wishing there was more and yet grateful that there is not because it is perfect just the way you wrote it.

Review of chapter "Inspiration" from mmooch
Oh, it is to weep! The heartbreak of Buffy's view of herself and Daniel missing out on a chance to be with an angel. But maybe they'll meet again one day. (deep sigh)

Review of chapter "Inspiration" from Amai
I like the descriptions of the paintings, and the attitudes of the priest. I also like the balance of how you opened and closed, with the 'Daniel was in love, and it was nothing new...' thing. I sort of wish for more, even though it is kinda perfect the way it is. Ah, the readers dichotomy.

Review of chapter "Inspiration" from DracoTamer
That was beautiful. Very well written. Poor Daniel always going after what he can't have. I liked it a great deal.

Review of chapter "Inspiration" from Marcel
Damn... you're a poet. I read the House crossover first, and then this, and you're a bloody poet. This is painfully beautiful. Too bad your stories are short, though - I would love to see what you could do with a long crossover.

Huh, an odd fic. Ends with a sense of mystery.

Review of chapter "Inspiration" from lindseyjo
This is lovely. I so enjoyed that Daniel dragged everybody to Italy, and then left them on their own to have his own adventure. And your portrait of Buffy--the way she sees her life, what she does, and how she fits into the world--is just beautiful. I would love to see more of this--maybe they can run into each other again sometime? :-)
Comments from author:
Thank you so much for saying it was lovely. I was hoping for 'a decent read... not too boring' reviews, so 'lovely' is definitely a bonus.
Re: Daniel dragging everyone to Italy and then taking a side trip, it just seemed like him. There's a beautiful restlessness to the character, a bit of an absent-minded professor-y feel that I love and I think still exists, even though he's become quite the formidable warrior in latter seasons.
And I'm glad you liked the Buffy I painted. I know that she wasn't particularly religious in canon, but at the end of season 7, she was utterly exhausted. She'd gone days at a time under the threat of the First with zero sleep. Considering that, and with echoes of sadness left by Spike's death, it made sense to me that she'd drift into a church one evening to light a candle, only to discover the frescoes. It seemed to me that once she saw them, she'd connect the dots and go back again and again.
I'm glad it worked for you, too :D
As for more, while I firmly believe that they found each other and stayed together, I'm not going to write it. I don't think I could re-capture the mood of this piece and have it work.
I am simply not that good.
Perhaps you should try?
If you do, let me know. I'd love to read someone else's interpretation of this connection.
