Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I can never think of any good snark right off the bat, so on to the rest of the review. :)

What I especially liked about this chapter was Buffy's realization that her new-found 'true' identity (Elizabeth Stark) was a blank slate, an empty space waiting for her to fill it as she chooses, rather than a previous identity that she could no longer fit into since the terrible death of her mother and the vengeance she'd taken for it. I was also touched by Buffy's determination to try because of her mother, to honor her mother's wishes, as much as she can, in memory.

Pepper's deal with Buffy should turn out to be VERY interesting, all around, since Pepper has apparently determined that it's worth almost any expense to get Buffy the martial arts training she thinks the girl deserves. I hope Buffy has something really 'fun' in mind for Pepper to do, since the martial arts instruction is likely to open some emotional wounds that she's been trying to let scab over (though hopefully the nondisclosure agreements will cover any Slayer-related slip-ups or revelations that may occur during instruction).

And Pepper and Buffy taking cooking lessons...? I love it! (Also got a big chuckle out of their 'unused pot calling the unused kettle ...' moment, telling each other that what THEY do in the kitchen doesn't count as cooking!)

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from HMaxMarius
Review:
You want snark??? ;)

Buffy slowly looks at Tony from his bird's nest of hair to the tips of his toes...

"No wonder I'm so damn short!"


alternative:

"I knew the camera added pounds... but FEET???"

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from (Moderator)Ava
Review:
I'm highly enjoying this story. I think the breakdown of Buffy's emotions felt real and the repetitiveness was incharacter for her. We all should remember when Glory took Dawn and she broke down and kept repeating the same memories/scenarios in her head until Willow dragged her out.

That being said she does need someone she can talk to and be completely honest with. I'm not sure if you've read 'Slayer, Interrupted' (the comic), but the psychologist that worked with Buffy was a former Watcher who left the council after she lost her Slayer and began to disagree with they're policies/beliefs and since she's not under Quentin's thumb she wouldn't be someone they could turn against Buffy easily.

I don't know if you intend to use her stay at the asylum (perhaps it was court mandated therapy instead), but Primrose could be useful to you. Plus I'd be thrilled if someone other than me used her in a story. ;)

Suggestions aside: thank you for sharing!

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
Review:
excellent update. The first real emotional response from Buffy, as in wanting to do it for her mother. I liked that part. Buffy needs to realize that her mother wouldn't want her to live her life in an emotionless void. Here is hoping they keep making progress on that front. I can't help but wonder how things are going to go when the press digs up her past. setting fire to the school and being committed and all. Oh my gosh I hope Obidiah isn't going to try to use that against her when the time comes. I mean try to have her committed for thinking she is the Slayer, I just thought about the psychologist she sent running for the hills. I kind of hope you have him go after her in a different way but I am sure whatever you do will turn out great. IS this going to go through to the Avengers? or the first or second movie? looking forward to more.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from marque
Review:
I may not really be able to add anything too constructive feedback-wise, but just wanted to say that I am loving the story. Your writing in general is fantastic, and the prospect of new updates to this story has made a few days at work that much more bearable. Can't wait for Buffy to meet Tony!

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
It might not be obvious, but Pepper's deals with Buffy on her activities are kind of preparing her for negotiating deals in business.

And either Buffy's masks are getting better, or she's starting to heal a bit more. Personally, I think it's a mix of the two.

I have to admit, though, while I'm looking forward to her first meeting Tony, I'm almost more interested to see Rhody's reaction.

"Wait, now there's *two* of them?"

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Rich
Review:
Looks like Buffy has found the silver lining - since Elizabeth has never existed, Buffy is free to reinvent herself any way she likes. She can be a scholar, a spoiled brat, or a super Slayer (she doesn't need to worry about the Watcher's council, because she can BUY the Watcher's Council if she wants). I look forward to seeing what she chooses, and to Pepper's reaction when she does.

Review:
Yay for an update and YAYA! for you having the next bit off and deciding to write. I loved the new trailer, too! Super stoked for it. And I had two favorite exchanges during this chapter:

-This-

“Well that's something.” she typed something on the laptop. “What about the horseback riding?”

“Too Brokeback Mountain.” she took a drink of coffee.

“Music.”

“Can't carry a tune with a forklift.”

“Instruments, violin maybe.” she gave Pepper a look.

“Not for all the designer shoes on earth.” a shake of the head. No music.

-and-

“Moving on.” she glanced at the list. “I can cook.”

An irritated look “Ordering pizza, brewing coffee and microwaving ramen noodles isn't cooking.”

“It's a kind of cooking.” a lame defense but cooking was boring. Then she had a thought, and a smile. “Can you cook?”

A startled look. “Well, I- I can cook.”

“Putting sauce on some noodles doesn't count.” well she'd just won this round. “Moving on.” she glanced at the list. “I can cook.”

An irritated look “Ordering pizza, brewing coffee and microwaving ramen noodles isn't cooking.”

Looking forward to where you take this, and I can't WAIT until we get to the Tony/Buffy meeting.

CT.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Morgomir
Review:
I can think of several Marvel characters that could be Buffy's teacher. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Love the new chapter and wish you good luck with your holiday. Keep up the good work. (Once again I keep wondering about the other Scoobies)

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from brokenmimir
Review:
Loving this story. When I watched the Iron Man trailer before I went to sleep, I actually thought of this fic. Glad to hear that it got you writing! I can definitely take a doubling of the story length in two weeks. Keep up the superb work!
