Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from HonorLove
Review:
Personally, I'm willing to trust you with the OCs. Especially if the universe-characters would only share a name with their counterparts. My main problem with OCs is when writers don't write them well/believable. You're doing a great job so far, so my two cents says go with what you already have. Plus...anything that gets us to Tony and Buffy meeting sooner is of the good!

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from HMaxMarius
Review:
As another author once said about fanfiction: The instant you put pen to paper, you are AU. As a fanfic writer you can be 'canon compliant' but you can never be 'canon'.

With that said, this is YOUR story. As such, you use the characters that your story requires. Let your writing and the story carry the reader. (Something that you have done an EXCELLENT job of so far!)

Do I want to see more Buffy canon characters in the story? Sure. Do I have a right to require you to use them? No.

Don't break your story by trying to live up to reader's false expectations regarding the inclusion or exclusion of certain elements. Go where your story takes you. So far it's been a hell of a ride!

(wanders off humming Bob Seger's 'Roll Me Away' while imagining Buffy on the Indian)

hmm

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Sinangeled
Review:
Awesome chapter! As for the OCs, I think they sound fine. The only time they bother me is when they are utterly crackish or Mary Sues, which obviously isn't going to be an issue here! Keep them in :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from (Current Donor)wizathogwarts
Review:
To answer your question, you've written eleven awesome chapters and you've done it by following your own instincts. Why would you want to change now?
I'm guessing that you need the characters for your plot because existing Marvel characters wouldn't fit in without altering the plot.
This is a very valid reason for OCs as long as they're not Mary Sues.
Looking forwarded to reading more.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Kalliza
Review:
I have a preference for cannon characters, however I've found that I've read any number of fics with OCs that I've absolutely loved. Therefore, I vote you use your best judgement of where you think this story should go to keep it as awesometastic as it currently is, with a request that we see some of the cannon characters we're used to (and love) at some point.

What I want is Tony, but I'll settle for whatever you think is best....I guess.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from TheLandYacht
Review:
"What do you want" she says.

We want to see more of the awesome story! Additional characters...be they OC, Buffyverse, or MarvelVerse...are perfectly fine with me.

Still looking forward to SnarkFest 2012 when Tony finally shows up.

Noticed you had her paint the Indian red & gold...talk about great minds think alike (or "like father like daughter" perhaps).

Interested in what Jarvis will surprise Buffy with...would like one to be a WWII era military (german?) bike-with-sidecar (like those seen in a couple of Indiana Jones movies)

Happy to see Buffy coming out of her shell (not for my own sake or that of the story, but because I can imagine how miserable she must be).

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from (Past Donor)sopchoppy
Review:
Great chapter, as for the OC's - do whatever is the most enjoyable for you to write, because that generally will be the better story - keep the focus on Buffy and Buffy's story - Do that and you'll here no complaints from me

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from amie
Review:
OC's are fine! I agree with another reviewer who said they have a bit of a soft spot for both Clint Barton and Coulson though. :D

But in all honesty, as long as OCs are not completely marysue-ish and don't take over the story I don't mind them at all. Its when that happens that they get annoying and I stop reading. But I love this story too much to stop reading it, so I highly doubt that would happen. And of everything I've read of yours you don't seem like the type of author to insert an annoying OC.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Fantasymania
Review:
Yay! I love this story! I totally think you should keep with the movies, but alter it to fit Buffy in. Or whatever. Whatever you do , you'll pull it off. Your writing's some of the best I've ever seen!

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Teucrian
Review:
First: amazing story! Great update! Ra ra ra!
Anyway...
As for your OC question: as long as they don't get too much focus, I'm neutral about OC's. For example, an OC martial arts tutor who teaches Buffy as part of her schedule, maybe teaches a few "life lessons" and then gracefully exits the story I have no problem with, and can even enjoy. As an opposite example, an Original Character inserted as a love interest for the main character all too frequently sucks up all the attention and then hangs around the story like a bad smell. If you can do it well, with good characterization and then character growth, then that's great, but every OC I've ever liked has been a minor character. I don't care where they come from, as long as they aren't the main character from another canon.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Gideon
Review:
Glad to see Buffy finally waking up! Funny how the world changes around you when you get around to noticing it :) It looks like she has a purpose now too, a reason to go along with Pepper's schedule and actually try to exceed it. And avoiding a stifling private high school experience is just the motivation she needed! Maybe soon she will start to reconnect with her friends too?
As for new characters I would prefer them to be mostly new. One of the best things about the marvel movie universe is that it doesn't rely on decades of continuity so it remains accessible to new viewers. (In your case - readers) Yet it still has the rich history of stories to draw from. I won't be upset at all if you adjust a few characters or change a few things.
