Review of chapter "By The Work Of His Hands (Post IM3)" from MarcusRowland
Review:
This explains quite a lot - especially if the power was inherited from Howard. I wonder if Stark weapons had a reputation for being state of the art but almost impossible to fix if they went wrong?

The talk with JARVIS would be interesting - provided he doesn't go the Moloch route or something, or create lots of soul backups a la Voldemort.
Comments from author:
Along those lines, I had the interesting idea that the reason everybody else's attempt at the Super Soldier Serum went wrong (in the MCU, anyway) isn't because they were so far off on the formula; it's that nobody else had that exact Vita Ray machine Stark built for Steve......

Jarvis is love; and this is my fun universe, so no Moloch here. :-)

Review of chapter "Dragon Pepper and the Iron Assistant (Post IM3)" from Vashti
Review:
Excellent post-movie chapter! The interaction between all the characters its very nice. What would the world do with Dragon Pepper? Although if she can manage not to break, bend or otherwise melt Tony at his most aggravating I think she'll get a handle on her new abilities quickly enough.

Review of chapter "Dragon Pepper and the Iron Assistant (Post IM3)" from ShyBob
Review:
Liking what you've done with Pepper (mmm...Buffy and Pepper sparring). I was irked that they just de-powered everyone at the end of IM3. I agree she'd make a kick-ass secret associate to the Avengers.

Review of chapter "Dragon Pepper and the Iron Assistant (Post IM3)" from Freefall
Review:
While this story flirted with being great, it never really got there.
The format really worked against it--all filler/interludes and not much else. What I take away from this is that you were trying to show us the essential bits of a story, without all the noise and chaos that makes up 70% of all modern action movies, but somehow it didn't quite work. I wonder if it's because we didn't see any of the peril that the quiet moments you showed us didn't quite gel? Maybe. Maybe if you cut out the intense bonding moments, the quiet bits that should have all kinds of heart no longer feel earned?
Either way, that was how this felt--moments of heart without actual heart.
It was made worse by the dialogue, which felt very forced. Yes, Tony is quippy, and Buffy likes a good quip too, but you really shouldn't try to have them speak in nothing BUT quips that are combo-chained together in page-long runs. By the third or fourth chapter, it really felt so artificial that I had a tough time just getting through it. Buffy, Tony, Natasha: everyone was working so hard to be clever and cryptic and awesome in every word they said that they all ended up just sounding like raging assholes (which is a serious danger at all times with someone like Tony, who IS a raging asshole much of the time, but usually his charm redeems him. This time... not so much).

You don't need me to tell you that you're an immensely talented writer, so I won't, but this one felt flat. Don't let a challenge, or marathon, or whatever it is that prompts you to write a story channel you into a format that works against the proper telling of the story.
Comments from author:
I appreciate you taking the time to give me this well-thought-out opinion.

That said: (1) Judging by hit count, reviews, etcetera, I get several times the attention for this fic than everything else I've written in the last year, so I'd guess most of the people who click on the story disagree with you about the fun factor and characterizations; and (2) Sometimes I just want to write a lot of froth celebrating characters I love. I didn't *have* an intense story to tell; the movies filled that need for me. Without the challenge, I wouldn't have created this universe at all.

I can't be 'on' all the time; I work full-time, I have family responsibilities, and I have ADHD. Writing things like this keeps me energized for the tougher stuff; it makes a fun place to relax my writing muscles between more serious-minded stuff. I'm sorry it felt false to you, but I'm sure I'll write something else you like eventually.

Review of chapter "Dragon Pepper and the Iron Assistant (Post IM3)" from bradsan
Review:
Oww that must hurt Physical and Mentally. "LOL". Underestimating Pepper you would think Buffy should know better. It took Buffy by surprise. Well lesson learned. Sometimes you need that even without knowing. Buffy won't be sloppy again in the near future.

Loved Peppers talk to Buffy. She needs that.

Great update again as always. Had fun reading it. Hope there will be more.

Review of chapter "Of Damage Control and Self-Repair Mechanisms (IM3)" from (Moderator)Ava
Review:
I just wanted to comment here as well that this was fantastic and make certain I was already recommending this series as a whole. While I won't beg or plead for more I will say/type: if you write it, I shall read it. :)

Review of chapter "Of Damage Control and Self-Repair Mechanisms (IM3)" from bradsan
Review:
Thank you for this great update. Touching and funny at the same time.

Tony doesn't understand what having a friend in Buffy means. She would never judge him, she never did that with her other friends so why would she do it to him. Nope Tony needs to find out that when Buffy consider you worthy to be her friend and she trust you. She will back you up. It won't mean you can do whatever you please no it will mean when you do something she trust you enough that there will be a good reason why you do something or act in a way. There will be talking involved afterwards because she wants to know the whys etc.

So he doesn't know what it means to have Buffy's friendship and trust. Well it will be good for both of them. Now do tell what did Tony do to gain this friendship because Buffy can find somebody nice etc. but to consider Tony as a friend needs more. So what did he do and he was probably unaware that he did it.

Can't wait what will be next.
