Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)exiled
Wonderful story. I'm not a huge House fan however I loved your idea of the character. Your idea of Buffy was perfect, too.

Thank you for sharing your vision and hard work.

Hey exiled bebe!

Thanks ever so for r&r-ing me and offering your support, considering you're not a House fan this really means a lot.

I wasn't much of a House fan either, for the longest time. But Meri and Pol kept talking about him and so I decided to really watch and see what the fuss was all about (via DVD). Now I'm crazy about that cranky old genius.

Again, I'm just over the moon that you gave this a try and enjoyed it, sweetie.

Hugs! sita:)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)Catlimere
'sita - sweetie!!!! I'm so glad to see you back on the site and writing again. And wow!!! Marvelous story. I love the way you captured House and his thoughts regarding Buffy, her healing, her secrets, his quest for knowledge...any small crumb of something. Loved the many and varied theories surrounding Buffy's injuries and how she comes by them, mafia hit woman, paid street fighter. I also liked the way House felt in her proximity, his desire to be completely there, completely present when she was around. Loved his attempt to seduce her, the invitation to remove her stitches at his place, around dinner time...great scene. I just loved the whole thing and as much as I'd have loved her to take him up on his offer, no hesitation, neither Buffy or House are ones to do anything the easy way. The way you left it, with Buffy's promised return when she needed him...there's hope. :) Beautiful story and yay! again.

Hey my gorgeous goddess, how are you?!

Whew! I'm much relieved to hear that you liked this, as I wrote the dang thing for you. Well... and that Pol chica, too. :D

Seriously though, I was nervous about the kiss. Pol totally saved my butt on that one (big surprise) by feeding me his lines and giving me encouragement. However, you had a part to play in this as well, bebe. I didn't come to like House of my own volition. That's all y'all. If not for you getting me hooked on House and your support of me on an ongoing basis, I never would have bought the DVDs, thought up the idea, hammered it out on paper, and dared to post it.

You're the best, honey! And if this fic was entertaining at all--to anyone--y'all deserve most of the credit.


Hugs! sita:)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CousinMary
Utterly wonderful!

Hey CousinMary!

Thank you so much. The experience of writing this had its highs and lows. Sometimes it was a breeze and sometimes a muddy wrestling match, but well worth it at the end.

I'm very pleased to hear that you liked it.

Hugs! sita:)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)Charlotte
As usual, I'm in complete awe. This is the only House/Buffy pairing I've read and I definitely like. She always had a thing for the older guy and this was an excellent example. Rock on chica!

Hey C!

So glad you came by to check this out, bebe! I wasn't certain whether or not this would translate well from my head to the page, but I'm soooo pleased to hear that you enjoyed it!

Big hugs! sita:)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from punzl
OMFG! All I could think was "wow." This is by far the best fic with House M.D. crossed over with Buffy. There was nothing funny or sarcastic about House, and that seriousness carried over to Buffy. This is the most stunning piece I have read in. . . ever! Most people want Buffy crossovers to be funny or action-packed, but this one is so realistic that I could imagine it happening without any doubt. It's so hard for people to mesh the different universes, especially this one. After all, magic is hard to explain to doctors and scientists. No other fic will ever compare to this one! I am so disappoined that this is only a one-shot! I hope that in the future you will add on other one-shots, because you wrote this idea too well to just stop here!

Hey punzl!

You're so sweet! Thank you so much for your kind and generous review.

In thinking about House, I didn't want to focus on House 'the genius', although a bit of that's here, or House 'the wise-cracking meanie', although there is some of that as well. Watching House chase Stacy, and agonize over Stacy, and try to manipulate Stacy made me wonder what his inner life would be like, if he met someone who he loved more than himself.

What would happen, I wondered, if he took a risk with her?

Knowing House and the way he invariably bull-in-a-china-shops every relationship he has, I knew it wouldn't end in a happy ever after scenario, but going in, I also wanted to leave the door open for that in the reader's imagination at some future date.

Re: future House/Buffy crossovers, I've got some ideas rolling around in my head, like I may at some point come back and write the day they met / her first stay at his hospital, or some other related one-shot. I just don't know.

I'm feelng a little Daniel Jackson-y right now.

Thanks for giving this fic a try!

Hugs! sita:)
