Review of chapter "Harsh Words" from Feyn
Review:
I have a vague recollection of this fic from, when was it... Oh. Five! years ago. Time flies...

The earlier chapters didn't seem to show the level of planning that Angelus is known for, but this chapter definitely shows him as the highly-motivated and scheming manipulator that he is.

Thanks for writing.

--edit--

Please don't apologise for not updating; it wasn't my intent to 'hurry you along', as it were. I've never understood those 'reviewers' who seem to feel that it's an author's *duty* to give them something: Real Life always comes first (and second -- possibly third, as well). :-)
Comments from author:
I do apologize for the long delay in between updates. Time has quite managed to get away from me on this and several othe stories that are still in progress.

As for that... part of it is the fact that Willow isn't in his head to know what he's up to, and part of it... huh, I'll point back to time getting away from me.

Angelus is smart, and skilled at being charming, but... charming does not equal nice.

Review of chapter "Harsh Words" from Sandi
Review:
Ouch. I can't think of a parent that deserves it more.
Comments from author:
Well, I must concede that he IS a bad influence, and not the healthy sort for her daughter to be spending time with...

and I can't think of a single redeeming moment for Sheila Rosenberg in the series.

But yeah... ouch.

Review of chapter "Harsh Words" from Jonathansicari
Review:
Now I'm all aflutter in anticipation of the next chapter and Angelus and Mrs. Rosenberg's extended conversation and play date. Will the lady attempt to convince Angelus of the irrationality of his actions. Will the blood flow gently down lily white skin or gush in rivers?
Comments from author:
I suspect that she'll try to convince him... and fail painfully (evil grin with many teeth)

Why would the whole thing happen the same way, or quickly? That would end the fun too quickly...

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from Sharkbait
Review:
A very interesting series...
Well written and entertaining; Angelus's interests in Willow and now Dru's interest in a "little sister" make this very entertaining. I really enjoyed the scene with the three of them discussing Wuthering Heights, like a "vampy" book club of sorts. I really enjoy Willow's willingness to go along with having a "vampy" group of friends while still questioning her sanity in it; I find it very plausible considering how often she is left by the wayside by her "human" companions... Looking forward to more!

Thanks for posting!
Comments from author:
Thank you.

Angelus isn't quite certain what to think of his friendship with Willow, and I'm not certain that it will stay as well-intentioned as Angel's friendship had been. As for Dru... even if she means well, she can be quite dangerous.

Early Willow was occasionally quite desperate for friends, and not always as careful as she should have been - 'Malcolm'(Moloch), Anya and her efforts to retrieve her necklace, Amy...

Thank you for reading.

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from Sharkbait
Review:
A very interesting series.... Well written; I find Angel's interest in Willow and now Dru's interest in a 'little sister' very entertaining. And I very much enjoy Willow's reactions and willingness to engage in this activity while still somewhat questioning her sanity for engaging in it. I find it a nice slice of what Willow might experience in the case of a true 'vampy' friend.
I look forward to more in the future.

Thanks for posting it!

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from ColleenStClaire
Review:
"But my copy had a hard cover, and had been wrapped in green cloth."

That was awesome :) Discussing English Lit. w/Drusilla!

I am thoroughly enjoying Dark Coffee... and I liked Thoughts & Coffee too (because I had to back and read it...)

I look forward to reading more.
Comments from author:
Well, the actual appearance of books has changed a little bit in the past few centuries. And Willow thought that discussing the book might be a relatively safe topic - no mention of Slayers, of their various friends who don't get along, or personal emotions.

I am delighted that you enjoyed Coffee & Thoughts and that you're enjoying Dark Coffee as well. Hopefully I'll be able to update this one sooner.

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from Sandi
Review:
Hurray! You're on a roll. I love the update and Willow reacting to Angelus and Drucilla is perfect. It changes everything for Angelus to be Willow's friend. He should be much less violent. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

You're right, this will change some things. Perhaps not so much 'less violent' as more specifically directed violence.

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from MistressRed
Review:
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love the Willow/Dru interaction. Dru is such an interesting and complex character but you seemed to have captured her so well.
Comments from author:
You are very welcome!

I love Dru - in the she's a blast to write sort of way. I'd be terrified if not dead if I actually met her, but she's so much fun to write.

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from (Moderator)JoeHundredaire
Review:
Write more of this. Your demented not-quite-a-muse commands it.
Comments from author:
You command it, hmmm?

This story had been refusing to cooperate for quite a while. Hopefully it will behave better now.

... and aren't I demented enough without encouragement?

Review of chapter "Coffee Heights" from Jonathansicari
Review:
I'm glad to see an update, reminded me to put this on my tracked stories (I first read it before I figured out tracking). Was nice to reread it in its entirety.
Comments from author:
You are welcome. This one was being stubborn and not cooperating.

Review of chapter "Dark Moments" from MistressRed
Review:
Lost 3 rating points for not updating in three years... any chance you'll ever return to this or have you moved on?
Comments from author:
I honestly hadn't realized that it had been that long since I'd updated this one. wow/yikes.

It has now been updated - perhaps pointing out long gaps encourages plot-bunnies? hmm... I may have to try that with a few other projects...

Review of chapter "Dark Coffee" from Moonlost
Review:
This is such a good story. I hope you come back to it one day. It would be a shame to not finish.
Comments from author:
I'm delighted that you're enjoying it. : )

I do want to come back and finish this at some point, it's on my WiP list. It just hasn't cooperated recently.
