K&C: Double or Nothing

ARCHIVED KUDOS & CRITIQUES


DoN_500


Scorch’s Challenge Received 13 July 2003
Written & Posted Over the Course of 8 Months
Angel finds a way to secure his soul, but in doing so Angelus receives his own existence.


Author’s Note:

Lots of gratitude to everyone who provided feedback whether by post, PM or email. I truly appreciate your kind words and criticisms. I had so much fun watching everyone debate about which ‘Vamp Camp’ you were in (Team Angel, Team Angelus, or Team Threesome) and who Cordelia needed to end up with.

All you lurkers out there…smoochies to you too!

Huge thanks to Sunscorched for the awesome challenge, the encouragement, the hilarious feedback and her ability to kick my muse in the ass when I occasionally got stuck.

The same huge thank you to Califi who must be a saint (slightly tarnished) for putting up with me when I needed a sounding board for my ideas.

Jude & Cali, you are both brilliant and talented and I thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support on this fic.

Just one plea. Next time…challenge me to write a Standalone.

There were 2 or 3 occasions when the Angel’s Oasis board had a computer glitch and some FB was lost, including all of the FB posted within the first few days after the story finale. WAH!!!! But, there is plenty here to read, and some of it is hilarious!

For your review:

The Backbone of this Story is the Awesome Challenge by Sunscorched:
1) Buffy & Angel find a way around the curse by separating him from Angelus.
2) Angelus must agree to ‘fight the good fight’ and is monitored by the PTB.
3) Scooby Gang freaks out with Angelus running around.
4) Angelus doesn’t really care about the ‘good fight’, but ends up saving Cordelia one night. She is scared witless of the vamp.
5) Angelus goes after Cordy in a big way…cards & flowers no less…in addition to doing anything he can to impress her.
6) Hot, steamy C/Aus results.
7) B/A starts to deteriorate despite sex no longer being an issue d/t mistrust and the slayer/vampire dynamic.
8) The following scenes have to be included:

Buffy and Cordelia meeting in the mansion kitchen. Buffy is fully dressed, but Cordy is only in Angelus’ robe.
Angel runs into the bedroom after hearing Cordelia screaming.
Angel & Angelus walking in the library together, Buffy running up to Angelus thinking he’s Angel. He pushes her away in disgust. Cordy can tell them apart, but Buffy can’t.
9) The rest is up to you.

I. Love. You.

Thanks for taking this challenge.

I really wanted to see Cordelia smack Angel for acting like a jerk, hell I wanted to smack Angel for acting like a jerk! Well done, waiting impatiently for the next installment and hope you’re enjoying writing this as I know it’s going to be entertaining!


Posted by CALIFI

Have you a link to SS’ challenge? The only one I’ve found is A/Aus set in ATS…and, if I’m reading it right, you mention there is gonna be two of them??

Confused- so a link would be really appreciated!

Besides that, love it [tho B/A fest always makes me wanna barf, sorry!- but I love they way you write so much, that i can’t keep away! ]

Thanks, Calx


Posted by IMPRESS

Ok, first off, B/A…*SHUDDER & MAJOR ICK*

Ok, now that that is out of the way. I’m enjoying this story. Can’t wait to see Angelus and Cordy interacting.


Posted by RACHELLE

Ah, this is good. Two of them??? And they are both going to fall for our girl… right Nothing for Buffy!


Posted by RUBY

Ok so wow!!!! This was such a cool start!!! I am already hooked really bad so you better be updating soon!!! The B/A thing was icky but it was well written!! Please update soon!!! -pouts- Pretty please with a naked Angel on top? —-Ruby


Posted by LIZZY

Lysa, you seriously rock. I love this. Really love it. Thank you, Sunscorched for the very interesting challenge and a huge thanks to you, Lysa, for writing it. I can’t wait for the next part. *sigh*


Posted by FRAZI

Oh droool! Can we say chemistry Hehe! i can’t wait to see what you come up with next! Soon?


Posted by DAMNSKIPPY

This is fantastic. I’m not normally a huge Aus fan, but I have to see him courting Cordy. This should be pretty dang entertaining. Post soon!!


Posted by PSYCHOFILLY

This has a good premise, as long as it doesn’t turn into a Buffy-bashing, wish fulfillment, Cordy is the “bestest” of the two girls, kind of story.

You have a great opportunity to mine the angst and have a lot of fun, as well as deliver some good smut. I’ll just have to have confidence that you can keep it balanced. You are a good writer, it shouldn’t be hard


Posted by IMPRESS

If you read the challenge, you’ll see that B/A isn’t really going anywhere. So take their little scenes together will a grain of salt.

I second Califi’s Phew. I have no doubt you’ll be able to do justice to the B/A relationship and show that even without the curse, the relationship would never have made it. And all without turning it into

quote:
a Buffy-bashing, wish fulfillment, Cordy is the “bestest” of the two girls, kind of story.


Posted by CALIFI


I do agree with this too; I just meant the smut.


Posted by PSYCHOFILLY

It’s okay Califi, I just detest seeing Buffy humiliated just to build up Cordy. Neither character need it, and I feel they can stand on their own and find conflict inherent in their natural strength and flaws. I never said that’s what Lysa was going to do, but just as you guy’s were expressing your hopes for the direction of the story so was I .

Believe me, C/A is where it’s at, but well written and fair B/A can give a story depth and relevance that other stories by often times capable writers lack. Angel loved Buffy, and it *is* tricky pulling off believable C/A in BTVS, just as it is to pull of believable W/A. LOL, Angel was never portrayed as a man-ho on BTVS, so showing the attraction from his side takes a little work, especially for someone like Cordelia who wasn’t one to put-out.

THAT’S where the fun can come in, because Cordy’s no tramp, nor an easy lay. Angelus is going to have to work for it.

Again, I have confidence Lysa has the skill to pull it off.

WORD!

Lysa, love that you have started a new story and like all the others, I *love* it!

And both Angel and Angelus? Whoa. Can’t wait

And can I say the C/A scene, even though I felt like slapping Angel, that was *hot*!

Great job! Love it!


Posted by LYSA

Ohhhh my! I do have my work cut out for me, don’t I?

I have to agree that character bashing for the sake of an “I never liked so and so” is not the way to go with fan fiction. I find it so interesting to read responses from fellow readers to various fics and see where their POV is coming from. It’s like my alternate endings to Promise of the Night…the responses were basically divided evenly between a Vamp Cordy/Angelus only ending, an Angel/Vamp Cordy ending and the Vamps with Souls ending.

I have to (hesitantly) admit that I actually like B/A fics in certain circumstances and settings. As long as they take place in the BTVS years and not after Angel has established a relationship with Cordy.

With this fic, I hope that I can avoid “Buffy Bashing”. If anyone is going to get bashed, it’s likely to be my poor evil vamp, Angelus who has to put up with Giles and the Scooby Gang. While many readers here at ST have an “ick factor” when it comes to B/A, keep in mind that to be true to the characters, you sometimes have to start with their beginnings in order to develop something new.

Everyone, thanks for your feedback and I love the extra discussion. Makes it all the more interesting.

loving this and wanting much more soon
from Kimmers


Posted by KATRINA

This was great. And I loved the little details included, like Cordy checking on Giles to make sure he is ok, but not letting anyone know. She had a good heart back then, even if it was more hidden than it is now. Can’t wait for more.


Posted by NOBODY’S ANGEL

Great start Lysa! SS showed me the challenge and I’ve been eagerly awaiting this! Post more soon please!

Great story! B/A-times are back! (eye-rolling and machine gun emojis)

“Don’t talk about mom that way,” Angelus laughed while curling his hand into a large fist. He rammed his sore knuckles across the other vampire’s jaw.

This part had me LOL. The Angel/Angelus interactions are priceless. And it goes without saying that I’m also really liking the Angelus/Cordy scenes as well. I’ve finally just caught up with your new story and like everyone else I’m loving it. I’m so happy that you decided to take this challenge. Thanks for another great story Lysa.


Posted by SI_CRAZY

Great chapter!!!! This fic can’t get any better. Oh, wait a minute, there’s a way it can be more than better, it can be perfect, you just have to add a little C/Aus smut
Anyway, I’m really loving this fic and I hope you post more soon.


Posted by RUBY

Great new part!!!

Loved the Angel/Angelus part where they were fighting. had me laughing so hard!!!

quote:
“Vampire wrestling?”

If only that was naked, covered in mud vampire wrestling!!! Update again soon!! You’re doing agreat job!!! —-Ruby

quote:
“I’m not the problem,” Cordelia let out a surprised gasp as everyone seemed to be mad at her for trying to break up the fight. “Tweedle Dork and Tweedle Dumb over here are the ones you need to worry about.”

A snort of laughter came from Giles direction, but he quickly covered it up by removing his glasses for a vigorous cleaning.

Too funny. And I loved that Cordy could tell them apart right away and Buffy couldn’t. Loved this chapter and can’t wait for more, more, more!!


Posted by CALIFI

Wow! You have such a gift with expression! You actually feel like your sitting there [with the popcorn and a coke,LOL!] in the same room/place as them! Brilliant!


Posted by LUCKYLYN

Post more soon. This is great. Love the fact that Angel’s still attracted to Cordy even without the demon. I’m hoping for some good C/Aus smut next time around.


Posted by LIZZY

Oh, yeah. This is some good stuff. The Angel/Angelus squabble was hilarious. Good job in having Cordy handle the mom duties.


Posted by CORDELIA’S DESTINY

Tsk, tsk. Angel doesnt’ know a good thing when she straddles him and goes back to the buffster anyway. I hope he comes to his senses soon!

Great job writing this; I’m anxious for the next part. And I second the c/aus action in the next part. better be there, or else!!!


Posted by IMPRESS

better and better. you’re doing a great job telling this story and keeping the characters in character. oh, and count me in as one of those awaiting the c/aus smut.


Posted by KIMMERS

Love this love the Cordy Angelus parts and the cordy angel parts wonder how your going to work this in the end can’t weait to see
from Kimmers


Posted by PSYCHOFILLY

Wow, Looks like things are heating up btwn Angelus and Cordy, we get hints of possible A/C/A action (kinky- Would Angel do himself, inquiring minds want to know?). All done with no Buffy bashing. That’s great!


Posted by KELLY22

Just getting caught up on this fic and you officially have me hooked. You are building some serious heat here missy, and I can’t wait until all this sexual tension comes to a climax (literally and figuratively)! Seriously, you need to post more NOW


Posted by IZZYCHASE

I am addicted to this fic as well, gurl! Good job with the Angel/Angelus squabbles and I loved how you kept everyone in character and there was no buffy bashing… as of yet. Thanks for another awesome fic and post more soon!

I’d love to see Angelus going for Cordelia.. w/ flowers, candy, sweet talk, the works. Great job, Lysa! I’ll also be on the cheerleading squad for those of us wanting C/Aus soon! Look forward to reading the next installment.


Posted by TIPDIP

Great job, Lysa! I like it that both Angel and Angelus are attracted to Cordy! Can hardly wait for the next chapters! —-Cammy


Posted by LYSA

Thanks for all of the feedback. I’m a little relieved that some of the humor wasn’t a big bust. I think writing something with humor in it takes a lot more effort than writing smut. At least for me. So thanks for laughing in the right spots.

As for those of you hoping to have lots of C/Aus smut in the next part…Yikes! Angelus has a lot of courting and coaxing to do before the steam starts pouring off of your computer. I’ll see what I can do.
Hoping to post today or tomorrow.

Just a brief response to Psychofilly’s question:

quote:
We get hints of possible A/C/A action (kinky- Would Angel do himself, inquiring minds want to know?).

A/C/A action? Stop putting these evil little seeds in my brain. They tend to take root and grow. I would never have thought that one up on my own.

Would Angel do himself? Kinky question! I’m certain Angel had plenty of opportunity to do himself in the past. Oh…you mean with Angelus! I’m afraid Angel is the only one who can answer that…and his brain is just a bit confused at the moment. We’ll have to wait to find out.
~Lysa~


Posted by GILLY

Loving this fic- can’t wait to see if (how-tee hee)you incorperate A/A/C action. Keep up the good work.


Posted by IMPRESS

*claps excitedly* you updated. This is sooo good. I can’t even say which part I liked best. It was all so well done. But is it wrong of me to have hoped Angel wouldn’t give his permission and then have to punish them both?


Posted by TIPDIP

Nice job, Lysa! I can hardly wait for some C/Aus action. Post soon! —–Cammy


Posted by TACTLESS BRUNETTE

Your stories are sooo GOOD!!!


Posted by DAMNSKIPPY

Whoo, baby, that Angelus is one smooth talker. I can’t believe Angel is agreeing to this. I hope he doesn’t regret it!

Great chapter! Need the rest soon!!!


Posted by JENBUG13

Yay!! A new part. This story is great. Can’t wait for more, soon please.


Posted by ATHLANTIS

yeah!!!, you updated it!!!, this is so cool!!!!, Angelus!!!!! I so love him, and Angelusand Cordy is the best shipper ever!!!!!
thank u for writting this, can’t wait to read more!!!


Posted by KATRINA

Aww Angelus can be such a sweetie, love it. Can’t wait for what is surely coming next


Posted by LIZZY

Good golly, this story is amazing! The Cordy/Angel convo about Angelus was … tense. I kept expecting something to happen. And that Angelus made me squeal with glee when he saved Cordy and tattled to Angel about the rapists. I love Angel and I love Angelus. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lysa!


Posted by SI_CRAZY

Great chapters!!!!! This fic just gets better and better. Hope you post the next part soon, and I’m looking forward to read some C/Aus smut.


Posted by PSYCHOFILLY

A new Chapter!


Posted by CALIFI

OOO! Now Angel’s jealousy is surging forward! So surprised he actually consented [and would have loved to hear what ‘punishment’ her had in mind! LOL!]

And his thought about Buffy’s dominance! That’s understandable that she’s like that- with so much power, it seems about right she’d be like that! But, Angel being a Vamp who likes to dominate too…can see why he’d be getting a little irked about that!

I have to say, Lysa, that it was way too short!- even if it was ten pages long!

I just know from experience, that when Aus/C get steamy, my toes are gonna curl- and why do I think it wont be long before Angel goes for a taste too?!

Loving it! Post soon [cos you know how irrationally impatient and demanding we are here! *g*]


Posted by LUCKYLYN

The way you write the characters is perfect. I’m holding out hope for some A/C/Aus fun. Post more soon. This fic is fantastic.


Posted by GABRIELLA

Okay, Angelus is DAMN hot, but is it wrong that I want Angel to get the girl? It’s the ol’ romantic comedy lover in me. The nice one who the girl doesn’t initially fall for (cos we fall for cruel men ) ends up with her in the end…

I’m just gonna go now and leave you to write your own story… *g*


Posted by CALLYSTO

Wow Lysa,

It’s been awhile since I’ve been on but it’s nice to see you kept up with the writing

Great story so far…you have me thoroughly intrigued and anxiously waiting for more. Love your Angelus by the way…he’so…WOW.


Posted by QUEENC

This is a great story so far! I love the way you are writing Angel and Angelus. Although, I must say that I’m a little torn about the whole Cordy/Angelus thing… I hope we see some indication that Angelus is really falling for Cordy and not just wanting her for sex. (Or maybe we’ll see that from Angel? )

Either way, please post more soon! —Lori


Posted by SARAH S

That’s really one great story you wrote there!
Can’t wait until the next part is ready!


Posted by DANNYBLUE

This story is really good. I love your characterizations of both Angel and Angelus. We all knew Angelus could be a charmer if he wanted to. We also knew Angel wouldn’t be all sweetness and light just because his demon (well, most of it) was gone. He’s still as alpha male as ever.

I’m getting a kick out of Oblivious!Cordy when it comes to the souled vamp. Looks like we’re in for some Jealous!Angel, too. Yipeeee!

Great fic. Looking forward to the next part.


Posted by RUBY

All I can say is wow and how much I love this fic,

please update soon!


Posted by SUNSCORCHED

This is coming along swimmingly Lysa, it just keeps getting better and better with each part you post. The C/Aus is hotting up very nicely, giving a good lead into their love affair. You pulled that off excellently.

I can’t wait until the next part, the conversation between C/Aus following what Angel told her about him asking for permission to sleep with her. That promises to be fun to read and I hope it was fun for you to write.

I would have liked to have seen the conversation between Angel and Angelus though, could have been a lot fun… And not in that way!! For some reason I don’t find an A/Aus pairing all that delicious… Oh who am I kidding??? Twin Angels, you certainly wouldn’t need a mirror would you?!!

Warning: Bad Poetry Ahead

Do you have any idea what you’ve done today Sunscorched & Califi?
Distracted me all day long while I’m trying to write part 8.

Now you have me composing silly smutty poetry all because of the following:

Sunscorched:

quote:
Twin Angels, you certainly wouldn’t need a mirror would you?!!

and
Califi:

quote:
Mmmmmm….imagine being sandwiched between those two

and even
Psychofilly:

quote:
Would Angel do himself?

So here is what you have driven my crazed mind into thinking…

From Angelus’ POV:

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
The vamp reflected isn’t me at all.
One pure evil, One striving to be good;
I’m sure I sport much larger wood.
His clothes are lame, the colors flat;
I’m sure my hair doesn’t look like that.
Gotta admit, the guy’s still hot;
Would I do me? Surely not.

Hey, I never claimed to be a poet. Now that that is out of my head, I’m going back to writing part 8. As for who’s doing whom…heh heh! You’ll have to wait and see, but I do promise that your long awaited C/Aus smut is directly ahead. And it won’t come in the form of bad poetry.    ~Lysa~

Tooooo funny!! Brilliant! Fantastic! Hilarious and Spot On!

No words can be formed apart from those right now but I will quote my favourite line…

Amazing fic Lysa, loved it. Please post more soon.   —–Nairi


Posted by IZZYCHASE

Loving your fic! I’m totally loving this fic, gurl! You write both Angelus and Angel well. I haven’t made up my mind as to which camp to join, but the idea of Aus/C/A is starting to get to me. I hope we get to see some Jealous!Angel soon and some steamy C/Aus. Keep Up the Good Work, Lysa!


Posted by CALIFI

OOOO! You did that on purpose!

Angel is such a-a…I can’t think of an appropriate word there! Part of me is disappointed that he’d handed her over- and another part can’t wait to see what Angelus is made of! [making notes here! LOL!]

And Angel’s reaction when he smells her arousal[and other things!] on his bed??!!!! That has just got to cause a raging bit of angst!!!

Can’t wait- Love you for posting, hate you with a vengeance for stopping there!!!!! Grrr!


Posted by TRILLIAN

Agh! Angel’s gonna go schiz! I loved it!


Posted by LUCKYLYN

I can’t believe you stopped there. That was so cruel. I can’t wait for the next part.


Posted by DAMNSKIPPY

Ooo, Lysa, that was good! I second Cali’s opinion about Angel giving her over and love it that they’re doing it on his bed. Can’t wait for the consequences.

Thanks for the tour, too. I always wanted to see more of the mansion.

Post very, very soon!!!

Cordelia shrugged, “Duh! He caught me by surprise. Angel has never even attempted to kiss me before, not with Miss Slays-a-Lot around. Now he does it? Guys aren’t supposed to lock lips with their brother’s girlfriend.”

This is one of my favourite lines in this, it’s funny and you could imagine the look on Aus’s face at Angel being referred to as his brother!

quote:
Opening her eyes as she felt the cool air rush in between them, Cordelia gazed in heavy-lidded confusion at Angelus as he set them apart. “Why?”

Heehee, that’s what I wanna know!!

ANGEL’S BED! I’ve said that to you so many times today, hell an email was dedicated to this! I Love You for this, it’s funny and good and you simply deserve a medal of honor…

Good game that *mind wanders off*


Posted by NAIRI

Lysa that was amazing. loved the tour don´t know how i feel about Angel handing Cordy over but can´t wait to read what he will do when he gets back and finds out what has been going on in his room.
Please post more soon b/c the wait is going to kill me.

That was just too mean leaving off right there. More soon please.

You. Are. EVIL. Mind you I mean that in a good way. Now I expect 9 to be posted VERY SOON. *Pulls out whip* or else. Oh yeah, great chapter.

You can’t just stop there! Nooooo! I hope the next chapter has Angel returning to his room. How long will I have to wait?


Posted by RUBY

Was she implying that he was a cradle-snatching demon?

If the shoe fits…. lol.

I think Angel is going to be pissed off when he gets home and smells what has been going down in his room. Any chance that Angel might get home a bit too soon and catch them in the act on his bed and maybe join the party? Or maybe Buffy coming around to see her boyfriend, walking into his room and catching who she believes is her boyfriend with Cordy?

I am so in love with this story, Please update soon!   —Ruby

Rubykins!

Glad to see that you’re getting getting in the game. My somewhat evil Angelicious game that is. In response to your comments & questions:

1) Angel pissed off….you betcha!
2) Angel joining the party….just wait & read
3) Buffy coming around….I have to take a quote from Califi on this one…Mwhahaha!…I’m not telling you that either, except that it’s both yes and no.

Everyone,
Thanks for all of the feedback. I’m really, really sorry to have left you hanging by a thread. The “tour” was over, so I figured you guys didn’t need to read the C/Aus smut that follows. Maybe we should just skip that part…???      ~Lysa~

Lysa, you are on fire! 🙂

*wipes steam from monitor*

Whew, that was one amazing chapter, gurl! I loved the tour of the mansion and how Angelus is his arrogant self but really gentle with Cordy at the same time.

Keep posting! *way evil grin* I would love to see Angel’s reaction to his evil twin and Cordy doing it in his bed.

Amazing chapter!!!!! You’re doing a great job, Lysa!!! Hope you post the next part soon, ’cause I can’t wait to see how will be Angel’s reaction.

You better hurry up and update!

I am going to be patiently waiting….

I can’t decide who I like more…

I love the way you write both Angel and Angelus. And their individual interactions with Cordy are great. Which is why for the first half of the story, I’m in the C/Aus camp and then you have Cordy and Angel go off to talk, and it’s so obvious that Angel has some feelings for her too. Then I’m in the C/A camp. Oh, just write a threesome and have Cordy double her pleasure. Good. Problem solved.


Posted by CALIFI

This bit hits me ever time I read this, Lysa!

“He[Angel] felt like he needed to sit down in a dark room and figure out why the hell he was being such an ass. Except that Angel knew if he stopped to brood about this, he would only find himself fantasizing about Cordelia again.”

Boffing Buff, yet fantasizing about Cordy- if I was Buffy, I’d be completely devastated!!! I know men do it all the time, but the way you’ve written it makes me think that something is seriously wrong with his relationship with Buffy…which is what you are going with!-? I never know for sure, with you lot, as things can change and twist dramatically in a part, then I’m left wondering “what’s going on in that mind of his?” – or what’s going on in the mind of the writer!!!!

I loved beoing sucked into fics like this! Escalates the enjoyment!


Posted by GILLY

Oo oh I’ve been waiting for this, thankyou, thankyou- off to read it now.   ——gilly


Posted by SUNSCORCHED

You already know my feelings on certain parts of this fic! I’ll try my best to refrain from squealing that anymore!

My favourite part of this little slice ismost definitely ANGEL’S BED!!! Oh God woman, okay so I have no restraint, but that is a classic! You deserve a medal!

I got caught up in re-reading this part while writing this reply so I’ll leave it with a plea…

You need to hurry with part 9! I’m begging you! Please, please, please put me outta my misery!

ANGEL’S BED!!! Teeheehee!! Don’t those two words just bring all kindsa thing to your imagination???


Posted by GILLY

Lys- how could you leave it there??? It’s great can’t wait for the next part.
Posted by CALIFI

I bring my dismay to here too! -I still think you did i on purpose!!

And I still think Angel’s a rude word- buy him a clue!!

How long do we have to wati b/f we find out His reaction to scenting her allll over his sheets???

And when do we get to see just how good Angelus is??? Hmmm?

You are so getting stalked!!!

the scary, disturbing thing is, I’m finding myself using sentences like ‘smells her arousal’ and what you’ve just said– in a FEEDBACK!

I am seriously getting perverted and warped to a point where I think it’s normal to say things like that!

I bet when visitors come here, they shudder and blink in shock at our debauchery! Hehe!

PS: Lysa is in hiding!!!!! Poor gal is getting so much stalkerage, I should feel guilty!! Muwahahahahahahahahahahaha……

Normality is simply a state of mind.

It’s made up of the collective ties that bind us.

Therefore, being a bit perverted or warped is perfectly “normal” around this place.

And if visitors come here to gape at our debauchery then lucky for them. They probably need a taste of normal now and then.

Oh wow, Lysa..

That was f*cking smut-o-rama hot!

*fans self*

I’m anxiously awaiting the next chapter.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Well, I’ve just wibbled and jibbered to DEATH in FB at ST! I was checking summat out when you posted….and GOD!!

Love is too weak a word!! Lately, I’m feeling a lot of that word for a good few brilliant writers, and I’m mentally shattered!

Now I’m sure that’s Cordy in the middle of This smilie!!!! I bow down in worship!!!! – and still am begging for more!!! Angel is at the end of his tether, Girl! You EVIL woman, you!! Cos now she’s said the L word, she HAS to fend off future advances, doesnt she???

So, that leaves only ONE answer……. ?!


Posted by HELEN

Yay Yay, finally caught up, totally amazed and hot, hot burning stuff!

Keep it up the good stuff now (or did I mean someone else?)

Hugs, Helen

Isn’t this a welcome surprise?! I’ve been on a little day trip and I come home to some LysaSmut, some wonderful LysaSmut that is! If this makes no sense it’s because I’m on antibiotics and I’m a little dizzy.

She was standing on the second step, so that put them eye to eye. “I wasn’t going to give you the graphic details. Just saying that it happened after I—”

He might not want details, but I do!

I thouroughly enjoyed Angel giving Cordy her clothes and undies, it’s such an embarrassing thing to happen but you handled it perfectly. Having her practically accuse Angel of stealing her panties was so very good, I could so imagine her doing that!

The conversation between Buffy/Cordy was excellent and a makes me think of two little, old ladies in the hair salon gossiping!

In fact, there are so many things about this part that I wanna compliment you on so I’m gonna mail you with it!! I love how you’re doing this, it’s so damned good it’s addictive.

This is fantastic it just gets better and better. Please keep it ‘coming’!!

I read this and fed back at ST, but just gotta do it again, there can never be too much happy feed back.

Love the way you are handling this story line. The characters are so perfectly spot on. Even Buffy with her need for control, so true to life. Can’t wait for more.

If only she knew!!

Sorry for the late feedback, alcohol can do funny things to a person!! Loved Angel’s confrontation with Cordelia

quote:
Letting out a dark laugh, Angel brought his other arm up to the top of the refrigerator and completely blocked Cordelia into the open prison of his arms. She immediately thought of the fact that Angelus had made the same move, their habits in some ways so similar to each other.

This part is particularly good because you have Cordelia realising the similarities between Angel and Angelus. The conversation between Buffy-Cordy was excellent, I can imagine the two of them giggling and gossiping about both vamps. Almost feel sorry for the Tweedle Twins!!!

Part 10 is needed in a hurry that’s for sure, can’t wait for more and I’m getting pretty desperate. You’re doing beyond brilliantly with this Lysa.


Posted by TIPDIP

QUOTE (Lysa @ Aug 10 2003, 08:41 PM)
Now plucking at a fold in the sheet, Buffy asked, “Angel? What were you thinking about when I came in?”

Angel knew Buffy meant the moment when she caught him easing his arousal after being so wound up by Cordelia’s intimate scent in his territory and on his possessions. That had a studied ring to it and sounded much better to the vampire than being caught red-handed jacking off because he was fantasizing about Cordelia Chase. After an awkward pause, he answered, “The things that have gone on in this bed.”

Hehe! Smooth move, Angel!

Hurray..it’s up! I really love this fic. And I could get used to seeing double as well…if it were Angel and Angelus!

I like the way Cordy took on the whole Scooby gang while she was defending Angelus. They couldn’t even touch her. She was bitchy Queen C at her best. LOL

I kind’ve felt bad for Buffy when she kissed Angelus by accident and he made her look like a fool afterwards, however, I really enjoyed how jealous Angel got after witnessing Cordy and Angelus kiss in the library.

Nice job, Lysa!  More soon, please?    —-Cammy


Posted by HELEN

I already posted at ST – but no reason not to here too Loved it, snickerworthy in too many ways to count. Next part please —-Helen


Posted by CALIFI

QUOTE:
Angel had himself convinced that these random possessive thoughts and feelings about Cordelia were all temporary. Just some vampire instinct that had surfaced. Once he got used to the idea, Angel felt certain things would get back to normal again.

Who’s he kidding?

The jury was still out on that idea, but Angel decided that Cordelia Chase might still be a candidate for that spanking he had envisioned earlier.

Can’t wait for that! *dwibble*

“If you want Cordelia here, keep her out of my bed and then there won’t be a reason to fight.”

“Yeah, Bro. I’ll keep her out of your bed. Just remember that even when she was there…Cordelia was with me.”

His hold on the ceramic mug was so tight that Angel heard it crack. “If you can keep it, Angel, you can have Cordelia’s friendship, but the rest is all mine.”

Angel is just dying with jealousy here! UH-OH!!!!

“What the fuck was that?” Angelus demanded as he towered over her with a look of pure disgust on his face. Wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, the vampire queried with a harsh tone, “Can’t you tell us apart, Slayer?”

Somewhere in the back of his mind, Angel was asking himself why it was Buffy couldn’t tell them apart when Cordelia found it so easy.

Poor Buffy [I should say that, really *G*] And Angel’s starting to question his relationship more! Oh dear!

Sighing as their lips parted, Cordelia murmured to her vampire, “You can dilly with my dally anytime for a kiss like that.”

loved that line!! lol!

Already angry, the sight of Angelus and Cordelia kissing had brought a swift flare of jealousy. The fact that he recognized it as such was enough to floor him. He would have to get used to the sight of those two kissing. If that was all he was going to be subjected to at the mansion, Angel figured he’d be lucky.

“You’re coming with me,” Angel informed Cordelia determinedly, glaring down at her with dark pools that held her rapt attention and caused her to quake in sudden fear. This was not a request, she realized breathlessly.

Is our Sexy, Soulde Vamp losing control?????

Reaching out for her hand, Angel circled his thumb over the soft skin on her inner wrist. “I’m sorry, sweetheart.”

Angel released Cordelia’s wrist telling himself that he needed to fight these impulses that compelled him to touch her. Especially now that he had no right to do so.

Yup! Angel is heading down that path…Starts off small…!

” you’re setting all this up to include me in your version of some happy little vampire family!”

And Buffy’s calling is crying out in protest! Not long now b/f the bomb explodes! She keeps making Vamp remarks all the way through, whilst referring to Angelus- Angel can’t help but pick up on it eventualy! -After all! He’s a Vamp too….. God this is great! I worship at your feet, Lysa!

Which leave me with one last question….

How long b/f the rest???????


Posted by GILLY

This just gets better & better, Buffy seems to be getting left behind, will Cordy be able to take both A’s? Can’t wait for more.

I almost feel sorry for Buffy here, it would be awful to know your bloke was dillying with his dally while thinking of another girl. But lets face it, with Cordy as the other woman who can blame him?!

“If you can keep it, Angel, you can have Cordelia’s friendship, but the rest is all mine.”

Anybody else feel like saying Nyah Nyah Nyah?? It’s Angel’s own fault, he shoulda opened his eyes.

QUOTE
Several, thought Xander rather reluctantly. Hearing Cordelia use his full name that way suggested that if he wanted his ass to remain intact he better back off. There was a look of brilliant defiance in Cordelia’s hazel eyes and her flushed skin glowed with the color of her fury, but Xander had to admit that Cordelia had always looked beautiful when it came to defending the guy she loved.

He missed that.

Are we gonna get Jealous Xander? Cus that would be so cool!

QUOTE
She stalked up to the vampire who wasn’t causing her Slayer senses to tingle and thrust herself into his arms. His hands automatically came around her waist and Buffy wrapped her arms around his shoulders pulling his head down into an energetic and enthusiastic kiss. It lasted only seconds as Buffy felt herself hurled to the floor.

“What the fuck was that?” Angelus demanded as he towered over her with a look of pure disgust on his face. Wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, the vampire queried with a harsh tone, “Can’t you tell us apart, Slayer?”

I giggled at Buffy here, actually giggled out loud! There’s one thing to get the wrong vamp but it’s entirely another to be shown, in front of your friends, that the vamp in question didn’t like your kisses!!! Heehee!

QUOTE
Sighing as their lips parted, Cordelia murmured to her vampire, “You can dilly with my dally anytime for a kiss like that.”

LMAO!!! Yet another brilliantly classic line you’ve come out with here! Brilliant, superbly brilliant!

This whole part is one of the best you’ve written for this challenge, I enjoyed it so much. It made me laugh, cringe in embarrassment for Buffy and if possible, made me love the Bad Boy just that little bit more! You brought Queen C in with sparks and I just simply love you for this.

P.S. A suggestion for the spice she’s going to use: Tobasco Sauce and lots of it!!!

You guys are terrific! It’s a good thing feedback has no calories, because I just eat it up!!! Especially when your comments have me ROTFLOL!

Thanks to Judi & Sach for their helpful feedback to the “previews” I sent them.

As for the tobasco sauce…STOP READING MY MIND! Sheesh! Is there NO privacy around this forum? First Cali has Cammy’s shower bugged and now Scorchy is mind reading.

SunScorched, now see if I give you that W.C. scene you’ve been desperately waiting for (and no, Cali, it doesn’t stand for Water Closet!).

Gotta go! I have a little dilly dallying to accomplish in Part 11.


Posted by KATRINA

This is so great. I love how Cordy is able to so easily tell the difference between the two and Buffy can’t (sorry I know it’s petty but I can’t help myself). Love the vision of two such gorgeous man-pires at breakfast, mm where can I get me some?

Hoping for more soon.

Lovin’ it, more soon please. —Hugs, Helen

That was great, loved every bit. Defensive Cordy was on a roll with the ‘you people suck’ line, very funny, and mmm dilly dallying, count me in any day

Great part as usual, I am really enjoying this story. Well done Lysa, hoping for more soon.

I’ve gone into more detail [and gushing! ] over AO- but there can never be enough praise!!!

Love this story sooo much, and seriously can’t wait for more!- yeah, I know; you have to write it first! lol!- but just so you know, I’m dying for more ASAP!

“I can hear you!” Cordelia pressed the buttons on the microwave and then turned around to face the vampires. Crossing her arms on the kitchen island, she leaned toward them as they gazed back at her with their identical faces. It brought a wide smile to her face as she thought, I could get used to seeing double everyday.

How could they both not love her?

Great chapter and this story keeps getting better. Can’t wait for your next post!!

Great part. I love Torn!Angel. And that last scene with both of them with Cordy… priceless. More soon!


Posted by SUNSCORCHED

You already have my reply over at AO but as somebody else already said there can never be too much praise for this fic!!

I loved this chapter, there were a few parts in this where I almost felt sorry for Buffy!

quote:
Angel knew Buffy meant the moment when she caught him easing his arousal after being so wound up by Cordelia’s intimate scent in his territory and on his possessions. That had a studied ring to it and sounded much better to the vampire than being caught red-handed jacking off because he was fantasizing about Cordelia Chase. After an awkward pause, he answered, “The things that have gone on in this bed.”

It would be horrid knowing that your guy was dillying with his dally while thinking naughty thoughts about another woman. Bad Angel, bad!

The tension between Angelus and Angel was excellent, would quote you here but the whole conversation would be repeated.

quote:
Sending Giles an annoyed look, Cordy pointed out, “Look, I don’t think you’re qualified to lecture anyone about changing spots…Ripper.”

This whole part was brilliant, you brought the Queen out perfectly giving us the Cordy we all know and love. Loved the way she stood up for her vampire to the others, in fact I loved this entire chapter!

quote:
Sighing as their lips parted, Cordelia murmured to her vampire, “You can dilly with my dally anytime for a kiss like that.”

Classically brilliant line, you do know just how amazing you are right? No??

Well, you are amazing simply amazingly brilliant and I love the way your mind works so keep it up because you’ve left me (and others) desperately wanting part 11!!!

I said this over at AO but there’s no harm in repeating it, I think she should use lots of Tabasco sauce for spicing up the blood!!!


Posted by Ruby

Great part!!! Hurry up with the next update!!!


Posted by DAMNSKIPPY:

Mmmmmm, Angelus. *sigh* Wonderful chapters. Glad to see Buffy and Cordy calling a truce.

Loved Angel choking on the spiced blood and Angelus pretending it was sooo tasty. Oh! And sucking on her ice cream finger. OMG!!

What can I say about Angelus sex? Yummy doesn’t quite cover it. But, A/C/Aus sex has got to be twice the fun. We know Angel wants her bad, so don’t keep him or us waiting too long!


HELEN:

God I loved these three sooo much, i particularly loved the Vanilla Ice cream

QUOTE
Letting out a distinct growl, Angelus left them in no doubt that he didn’t want Angel to have a taste of anything. Rolling her eyes, Cordelia suddenly comprehended the misunderstanding. “Angelus, I have a spoon.”

Snatching it out of her hand, Angelus didn’t care if she had a whole set of silverware. “Mine.

I am such a sucker for possessive guys!

There was so much I enjoyed I’d be here all night but jeeze someone give Buffy a slap (soory) talk about wound up much and Cordrelia is just absolutley fantastic – poor Angel he definately came off worse with this pairing didn’t he?

More soon, no excuses – but big thanks for such a lovely long post.

Hugs, Helen


KIMMERS:

Love this and can’t wait for mjore please write more soon

GILLY:

This is great Lysa, you spoiled us with so much, now you know we’re gonna expect it every time.

I love the way you get them all interacting, so believable. Aus/C action it theatre, so very hot!

Angel not knowing what to do at a movie, in the back row, with the one he loves..LOL..Cordy’s right what a dork.


SUNSCORCHED:

QUOTE
Pounding Angel hard on the back, Cordelia huffed at his obvious attempt to convince her that she should lay off the experiments. “Don’t be such a weenie. It can’t be that bad.”

The image this bit gave me will last a long, long time! I can see her whacking him on the back every time he drinks her coffee or a blood concoction of hers, very funny images indeedy!

QUOTE
Buffy further explained, “Girl talk.”

The words every man dreads to hear! This gave me an image of Buffy and Cordy hidden in a room while Angel and Angelus squabble over who gets to listen in!! Ahh, the things this fic does to my warped little mind!

QUOTE
And she’d done it with a smile.

No person can resist The Smile!

QUOTE
“Yeah. For good reason, too,” Xander told her. “He’s your mortal enemy, Buffy. Not Count Chocula.”

Spot on Xander comment, yet another classic line from Lysa, you do realise I’m making a list of all these classic lines don’t you?!

The whole ice cream date was incredible, it was funny, cute and the sweet vanilla kiss between C/Aus was sweetly hot! Loved the jealousy from both girls and loved the Queen C glare that followed the jealousy! Angelus doing his best to avoid Cordy’s ice cream gave me yet another funny image! I could really see our fave Bad Boy getting force fed by her!

Cordy holds spoon to Angelus’ mouth: “Opeeen wi-ide!”
Angelus shakes head sharply: “No. Not gonna go do it. You can’t make me. I’m evil!”

Well, I thought it was funny!!!

The interractions between Cordy/Scoobies and Cordy/Giles was good, enjoyed the triplet comment from Harmony and thought the way you ended it was almost as evil as our Bad Boy!! If you can’t tell, I love how you’ve kept that going, it’s brilliantly funny and should give him an ego boost!

The movie date was wickedly hot and not OTT at all, loved Angelus’ take-control attitude and loved how he keeps his shameless persona! Though I did feel kinda sorry for Angel here, having to listen to his brother get hot n heavy with the girl he’s lusting after has to be head-battering. Though, I’m sure when the time comes, he’s gonna make up for the teasing whole heartedly.

Excellent part Lysa and impatiently looking forward to the next installment of this flaming hot fic! I hope you’re really enjoying writing this because it is truly a classic fic that is entertaining, comic, hot and cute. A general delight to read and that’s exactly what we need.

Well Done, here’s a cherry lollypop just for you!!


CALIFI:

I was just reading this again, and another part sueednely struck me that I’d missed the first time round!

“He’d never really talked to Buffy that way or she to him. Most of their conversations involved Slaying. The rest seemed to be filled with long periods of silence, but the quiet between them normally spoke volumes. Did Buffy expect to hear such words from him? Even if she did, Angel decided he wasn’t gonna try it now. Have to think about it first. Plan what to say before he actually did it. Maybe he’d make a list.

Maybe he’d make a list!! ROTFLOL!!!! I couldn’t stop laughing at that!!!!!

Seriously can’t wait for more,Lysa!


KATRINA:

Just wanted to add: great fic pic Cal, you are so talented.

Hi my name is Impress and I’m an obsessive-compulsive fan fiction addict.

And as long as wonderful fics like this are written, I will willingly remain an obsessive-compulsive fan fiction addict.

Great hun. Three absoulutly wonderful chapters. I’m going to need another fix VERY SOON.


LUCKYLYN:

This was amazing. I love the way you’re building the story. I can’t wait to see what happens next.


CORDELIA’S DESTINY:

Yea!!! More Dbl or Nothin’!!! I just can’t get enough of this story. I loved the conversation between Cordy and Buffy in the garden, and how Angel was being Mr. Voyeurism and loving it.

Also loved this quote from Cordy to Harm:

quote:
What was she hoping for? Triplets? “No. His only other relatives are out of town right now. I don’t think Spike is your type.”

Ha, ha! too funny. Nice nod to the show’s actual events.  —-Jules


HELEN:

I love this story sooo much – hot possessive Angelus, stunningly great Cordy and poor Buffy is so unsympathetic it’s untrue. Jeeze Angel your sure paying for not paying attention to the best girl Hee Hee. Such a lovely long post too and brilliantly written IMO More, More NOW!!! —–Hugs, Helen


CALIFI:

Boy is Angel in trouble!

Lysa: Every time I read this, I’m sucked in and feeling sorry for Burry [!], a mixture of sympathy and rolling eyes at Angel, and Angelus- how long b/f he really gets pissed with Angel? And poor Cordy, stuck in the middle!

You already know my feelings regarding this fic, but I’ll say it again: Love it with a vengeance. [can’t wait to find out about this ‘worry’ of Giles.]


SUNSCORCHED:

I don’t know where to begin! There were so many parts in this that were so much better than good! This was funny, hot and simply wonderful to read.

quote:
Buffy further explained, “Girl talk.”

There isn’t a man alive, or undead, that wouldn’t fear those spoken words!

quote:
Pounding Angel hard on the back, Cordelia huffed at his obvious attempt to convince her that she should lay off the experiments. “Don’t be such a weenie. It can’t be that bad.”

This bit gave me delightful images of Angel being walloped on his back while choking on her concoctions or coffee.

quote:
“I’ve seen Angel attempt to dance. Slow is…good. Fast is…well, we won’t even go there right now. So I’m assuming that your dancing skills are of equal suckage.”
Angelus was standing apart from his double, but his defensive stance was just the same. Unwilling to admit it, the vampire merely held his tongue.

Our favourite Bad Boy isn’t so egotistical now, is he?!

The whole ice cream date was excellent, funny and sweetly hot. Loved the part where Angelus kept trying to avoid Cordy’s spoon and her attempts to get him to eat ice cream! Enjoyed the jealousy over Angel/Angelus getting eyed up by those girls, it made a nice change! Though it would be fun to see Angel/Angelus snarking over some teenage boys eyeing up Cordy/Buffy!

What can I say about the movie date? That was hot with a capital H! Poor Angel having to sit there while his brother had a hot n heavy make-out session with the girl he wants. I’m surprised the poor vamp didn’t go insane!!

The steamy love scene between Cordy/Angelus was just that. Steamy, hot, sensual and it made me want my very own Bad Boy! This is so well written and you deserve a gold star!

Loved the Scooby/Cordy and Giles/Cordy interraction, it seemed pretty spot on. Yes, you really need to hurry and the next installment of this posted so very soon. Words can’t describe how much I’m loving this fic.

*fans herself* Okay. I’m never going to be able to sit in a bloody theater without a stupid smile on my face anymore. Thank you 😛 All i can say is darlin…you spin a mean story…with or without the hot lovemakin Can’t wait to see how Buffy reacts to being woed.

Loved this part. From the very start with Cordy helping Angel and Angelus by fixing them breakfast to the end with Cordy and Angelus finding their own amusement at the theatre. Can’t wait for more, great job Lysa. It’s all so fantastic.


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapters!!! I’m so loving this fic. You’re doing an amazing job, Lysa!!! Hope you post more soon.


CALIFI:

This is just so F***ing brilliant, Lysa

Words can’t express how much I love it! We so need a genuflecting smilie here!!!! So this will have to do

Damn! A & Aus are soooo hot! Angel’s jealousy is sizzling- how long can he keep his hands to himself?- and do we want him to?- Nu-huh! *evil grin*

Buffy’s reactions are a mixture of childishness and domination, who is selfish even regarding sexual pleasure…Doesn’t she realise that there is a LOT of pleasure to be had by Giving AND taking?? Grow up, Buff, and find yourself a lapdog [or Dildo, as Angel so succintly put it LOL!]

As I mentioned b/f, the build up of resentment on A’s part, and the barely hidden disgust at a ‘Vampire’s’ innate sensuality, is gonna be the straw that broke the Camel’s back! [and I can’t wait! ]

Bravo! Bellissimo! -And more!

I’m not gonna quote cos I’ll be here all night!

Part 14

This part was fantastic, though I am a pure C/A and total anti B/A, I enjoy the way you have the interract with each other. You write it so it isn’t yucky, tacky or intolerable and it takes a talented writer to do that. I loved Xander’s cluelessness before the lightbulb flashed, the comments you used gave a wonderful depiction of his character. You nailed the Zeppo Lysa!

Buffy’s thought process regarding her flowers and candy were mean and ungrateful. We have Angel who genuinely made an effort only to get it thrown into his face, or Xander’s face as the case maybe! It made me think of why she didn’t appreciate them and I came up with that she could be envious because Cordy got flowers from Angelus while she got dead puppies!

I can see Angel having words with Cordelia for telling Buffy about vampy stuff.
Part 15

This was brilliant, I laughed all the way through it! A football game was a great place to take Angelus and he was pretty good for most of it! The thing that stood out to me the most about this part was Willow. Though she finda him scary she still speaks to him and answers his questions.

That is a side of her character which I can only remember seeing three times. Once when she was kidnapped by the Mayor, when she was kidnapped by Spike and when Spike tried to bite her. I thought it was good the way you showed this side of her and leaning it towards Angelus.

Another bit that got me was how you brought out Buffy’s sense of humour when she commented on the fact that Angel/Angelus were oggling the cheerleaders. She did have a sense of humour and enjoyed the inaterraction between A/B/Aus at this bit. The part where Angel encourages her to talk was brilliant, he knows that they only talk about slaying so maybe it was a subconscious thing for him to get her to talk about.

And trust Buffy to pick the one thing that would get Angelus demanding revenge for his sweet lady love! I love, love, love the way you’re writing Angelus in this; he’s funny, sensual, shameless and wickedly hot. The part where the scuffle happens made me grin hugely, my huge grin turned sappy when Cordelia showed concern for Angelus but also laughed when he growled, asking if Angel thought it tickled!
Part 16

Your B/A was HOT! Well okay, your Angel was HOT! He was forceful, commanding, dominent with side order of nice crudeness! But he was also acting like a total male! I don’t blame Buffy for sticking to her guns, I wouldn’t wanna get down n dirty in a place where I work either!

Maybe I would if my boss looked like DB but that’s not the point here is it?!

What made me smile here was how you turned Buffy from a none-horny Slayer to a normal, horny teenage girl who can’t get any cos her mum is home! Reading her like that was good and I found it enjoyable! I wonder if and when she’s gonna realise Angelus has the vampy hearing too!!

Angel’s fantasy was HOT HOT HOT! Your B/A may be tolerablely hot but your C/A has steam coming off of it! It was heightened by the fact that C/Aus hadn’t been doing anything sexual anyway. The tension in Angel just that little bit more. You made her sleeping very sensual, adding little bits to make it very intimate.

In a way, I wanted to see Angel go into the room further just to see what Angelus would have done but then if Angel got beaten to a mass of bleeding flesh, Angelus would suffer for it and we don’t want that! I felt little tingles when Aus gave A the silent warning, not a smart thing for Angel to vamp out and then go into that room, his only purpose being to claim Cordelia.

All three parts were equal in brilliance and you need a bloody medal and some chocolate cake! Keep it up honey, we need more of these fics.


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapters!!!! This fic just gets better and better. I loved the scene where Cordy is sleeping and Angelus is watching her, it’s so sweet. I’m really liking read this story. Please, post more soon.


KATRINA:

Another great installment in a wonderful story. You have such a gift and I don’t know how you keep it all so consistently good. I am loving the gradual way Angel and Buffy’s relationship is deteriorating, it’s like people say: be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Seems like Angel and Buffy’s dreams of what could be, were just that: dreams. The reality is far from wonderful for them. Unlike Cordy and Angelus who they have constantly in front of them as an example of how things could be.

Loving this muchly and looking forward to more.


TIPDIP:

Another excellent chapter, Lysa!

Poor Angel, everything he wants into a relationship isn’t happening because Buffy is being a stick-in-the-mud. Girl needs to do some growing up quick or she’s going to lose that luscious hunk of a man…well..if she hasn’t already.

Loved the protective/possessive scene with Angelus warning Angel to stay away from Cordy, but then again, that woman would be one lucky chick if Angel entered into their relationship, *wink* *wink*…

I’m really loving this! Hope you post the next installment soon!


DAMNSKIPPY:

I’m so glad Sunscorched is here. She reviews so well that there’s nothing I can add except to say ‘what she said’! I’m in love with Angelus and you’ve made me tolerate B/A. Trust me, that’s a freakin’ miracle.

I want to fall asleep in Aus’s arms. Mmmmmm….

More!!!!


HELEN:

WOW I printed this off in work but had to wait to reply.

This fic is abosutely superb, it hums and sizzles the whole time.

Love possessive Angel/us and Xander was hilarious.

Gotta say though I feel so sorry for Angel being stuck with Buffy but that’s just the C/A’er in me

Love it, Helen


GILLY:

This is great, I wonder how long before you’re gonna to get them all tog A/Aus&C (u r rnt u?)!


CELESTE:

I really love this story!!! You’ve got me wondering though who she is gonna end up with…and while I love reading Angelus and Cordy, I really hope she ends up with our ever loving souled vampire… Can’t wait to read the next part!

I was all ready for a scene of smut, when you pulled this!I can’t tell you just how much I am loving this story. I’ve ended a particularly crappy day with a bar of Dairy Milk and the next three parts of your fic. Stellar!


SI_CRAZY:

Amazing chapters!!! Just when I thought that this fic couldn´t get any better, you go and surprises me. I’m so loving this fic, I think that maybe I’m addict to this, so please, make me happy and post more soon.


CORDELIA’S DESTINY:

quote:

You’ve got me wondering though who she is gonna end up with…and while I love reading Angelus and Cordy, I really hope she ends up with our ever loving souled vampire…

DITTO!! Altho, I would LOVE to see Angel and Angelus merge again and have Angel pick Cordy over Buffy. . . but any A/C ending would be fantastico. I just hope its a happy ending!!

Also loved:

quote:

It should be Buffy dancing that sexy shimmy in his head, not Cordelia. He had no right to think of Cordelia getting naked for him. Certainly no right to think of all of the ways he would take her once her beautiful body was bare. So what if he’d never actually seen her unclothed body— his two hundred plus years of experience could fill in a few details for his overactive imagination.

and liked Angelus getting totally into football.

And I just wanted to say a big THANKS for writing this fic. I’m absolutely loving it and I get so excited when I see new parts posted. Keep up the good work!  —–Jules


KATRINA:

quote:

If they were ever to establish what seemed to come so naturally to Angelus and Cordelia, this was going to take more effort than he had ever had to drum out for a woman.

It’s funny isn’t it? How much work it is for Buffy and Angel to have a relationship now that they can and Cordy and Angelus just do it so naturally? When will Angel and Buffy buy a clue, they loved the star crossed lovers idea more than they actually loved each other.

I know I’ve said this before, but the slow deterioration in their relationship is written so incredibly well. And the love and tenderness between Cordy and Angelus is really powerful.

I also am addicted to this story and eagerly await more. Great job as always.


IMPRESS:

Really, Really wonderful. I look forward to each and every chapter of this story. You’re doing a great job of portraying both relationships. I can’t wait for more.


RACHELLE:

Ahhh… delightful

*sniff* Ah, gee, that was beee-uuuu-tiful. And so totally unexpected. C/Aus have the best relationship.

Poor Angel. Buffy is so clueless about what her vampire wants and needs. She really is a child. Can’t wait for the implosion of that relationship.

More, more!!


NC2224:

This story just keeps getting better…

I absolutely love the C/Aus interaction. Their relationship just seems to come so easy. And the ending was beautiful. But if you’re taking a poll, I want Cordy to end up with Angelus. I really like Angel and all, but Angelus has been so sweet. At the very least, Angel and Angelus have to merge back into one and he has to end up with Cordy. But I know no matter what you write, it will be outstanding and I’ll be reading. I can’t wait for more!


HELEN:

This is absoutely fabulous Lysa

Hot, sweet, possessive, sexy wow I can go on and on, so I’ll just echo everyone one else. ——–Hugs, Helen


NAIRI:

Amazing writing Lysa, this fic gets better and better with every new chapter. I love the way you write C/AUS, they really are the perfect couple and i feel so sorry for Angel his so alone eventhough he has Buffy. The ending was beautiful and i can´t wait to read the next part, please post again soon.
Nairi


LUCKYLYN:

The way you’ve put this together is amazing. I loved that C/Aus have more than sex going on between them. They way you put together all the relationships in this story is just perfect. Post more soon.


CALIFI:
PARTS 17 & 18

I daren’t start quoting, cos I’ll only end up repeating the lot!

Poor Angel, Poor Angelus- and poor Cordy!! What a triangle

Loved the ‘bonding’ moment, and the C/A interaction in the kitchen- I really thought A was gonna get a little more physical- and having to remind himself later that he loved Buff! *snigger*

Brilliant- and I soooo need to read more *sigh* We are never satisfied, are we?

WOW! Love it. Bravo! Encore!
Calixx Mwah!


GILLY:

Two more great chapters, Lysa. How could you leave it with Cordy running out into the night in next to nothing, cruel?

Loved Angelus making friends with Willow by getting her some more fish, sweet, he really is trying to integrate with the Scoobies, probably more so than Angel.


HELEN:

OMG I can’t tell you how much I love this fic – I am so impressed with how you write both Angel and Angelus – hot, hard, lean mean loving machines

Plus Cordelia WOW, can you blame them both for wanting her – not a chance, they both have such good taste .

I love Xander too, I missed him the most when I stopped watching Buffy and your fic reminds me why.

I have absolutely no dea how you’re going to resolve this – I just hope it’s not gonna make me wanna cwry

can’t wait for the nxt few parts!!!!

Hugs, Helen


DAMNSKIPPY:

QUOTE

Offended, a hurt puppy-dog expression appeared on Angel’s handsome face. Cordelia was not going to let it get to her. “Don’t give me that look, Mr. Distance. You’ve been avoiding me all morning. Afraid I might force you to have fun?”

“I’d like to see you try,” Angel answered and instantly regretted the sensual twist to his challenging tone.

The whole scene in the kitchen at the beginning was full of ST and to have Aus watch it all knowing full well what was going on was scary and sexy.

QUOTE

At the conclusion of her babbling session, Willow closed the distance between them and wrapped her arms around his waist, hugging tightly. Angelus stared down at her with a panicked look on his face. He wasn’t certain what to do. The evil vampire had never been in a situation that involved spontaneous hugging, except from Cordelia.

Angelus put the glass bowl down on the top of the fish tank and gave Willow a quick hug. The brief squeeze was noted with amusement by Cordelia as she entered the room. “Hands off, girl,” she joked. “That’s my manpire. Stick to your werewolf and we won’t have to wrestle on the floor like the Tweedles do.”

The fish stuff was sooooo wonderful. It is amazing that the Scourge of Europe is the one trying to be friends with the Scoobs while soul boy just can’t get the hang of it. Of course, Aus is the more outgoing and charming one, so it makes sense. And, the next scene with the “Tweedles” chase, LMAO!

QUOTE

“At least it’s the pretty one,” Cordelia mumbled when the others started laughing. “I’ve wanted to slap you in the face a time or two, Willow, but I never thought it would be with a wet fish.”

Probably my favorite quote!! ROTLMAO!

C/A in the kitchen was great with A wanting to show what being a “master” could really be about and having to remind himself he was with Buffy. And, later, the confrontation with Aus/A and Cordy accidentally hurting Aus’s feelings and running after him… *sniff* …just beautiful.

Loved this chapter!! More, more!!


KATRINA:

I just love your Angelus soooo much. He is sweet to Willow, he has a sense of humour, he is sexy and now the poor baby is hurt. I hope that Cordy catches up to him soon and reassures him of her love in any way necessary

And poor Angel, having such doubts about the reason (je Buffy) for his drastic decision in the first place. And I love how he noticed Buffy’s petulance and felt the need to apologise, it really shows the deterioration in the relationship so clearly.

As usual this is wonderfully written, I don’t know how you do it, I am impressed. Great job, looking forward to more soon.


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapter!!! I am so loving this story. I really liked when Angelus was sweet with Willow. But in the end I felt sorry for him when he though that Cordy didn’t want to be his mate. Hope you post again soon.


ZANITA:

I love this story so much! This was a wonderful addition, can’t wait for more!!


TIPDIP:

Nice job again, Lysa..

Loved the Willow/Aus hug and how he was thoughtful enough to get her some fish to replace the ones he killed…

Loved the C/A interaction in the kitchen with had a hint of sexual tension..

And the C/A/Aus triangle…yeesh! Poor Aus, thinking that Cordy doesn’t want to be his mate..

KIMMERS:

Love this and can’t wait for more please write more soon

LUCKYLYN:

I can’t wait to see when Cordy figures out what Angel’s feelings are towards her and which vamp she’ll chose. That scene with Willow and Angelous was so sweet. Post more soon.


IMPRESS:

Just one word. MORE!


CALIFI:

Love this so much I just have to leave even more FB…The W/aus interaction was so sweet- and Xander was his usual annoying yet loveable self. C/A was hot hot hot- but so is the C/Aus! Arrgh! what a bind!

Buffy just opens that mouth and puts so many feet in it, it just isnt funny any more- and her snide comments to Cordy are well out of order. its one thing to bitch to her face – but in front of the Scoobies; especially X! Go Angel – his annoyance was classic!

Can’t wait to see this Tattoo ‘claim’ come to a head, oh, momma! A is on the edge, baby, and I can’t wait until he crosses the line.
Jumping up and down in excitement, waiting for the next installment of this wonderful fic. *G*

Calxxwubs


QUEEN C:

This really is great! But I have to admit that as much as I’m enjoying the C/Aus interaction, I find my loyalty lying with Angel. I’m really anxious to see what happens when Cordy figures out that Angel isn’t joking about his feelings and the Order’s rules. Can’t wait to see what happens between C/A!

Please post more soon.

KATRINA:

How do I love this story? Let me count the ways.

quote:

From his position in the doorway, Angelus chuckled in response. Suggesting, “Don’t give him ideas, babe. He has enough of his own already.”

Love the warmth between Angelus and Cordy, when he calls her babe I get all melty inside, it’s so sweet.

quote:

Staring up at the vampire, Willow could hardly believe the offer. Tears stung her eyes at the memory of finding her little fish strung up knowing that evil Angelus had been in her bedroom to accomplish the deed. Now he freely made a peace offering.

This was so sweet, I love that he is making things up to Willow.

I just love it all and I could keep quoting, but this would just get out of control. Love your Angelus, love the way you have the slow deterioration in Buffy/Angel, love the building of tension between Cordy/Angel, just love it all to bits. Great job.


HELEN:

Hi Lysa

I’m with Kat, love this fic to bits. Angel and Angelus are to hot too count and Angel needs to get himself a real woman , ‘cept of course his brother already has her

Damn, whats a poor vamp to do?

Can’t wait for the next part, can I be greedy and say chop, chop!

Hugs, Helen


IZZYCHASE:

Good job, Lysa! I loved the way Angelus made up the fish incident to Willow- that was nice. The B/A is deteriorating quite nicely and slowly, and I love the way you’re writing that.

Poor Angelus! I hope Cordy finds a way to *make it up to him*

I still find myself rooting for C/Aus, despite the rules of the Order and Angel’s growing feelings, but I’ll be happy with whatever ending you deem appropriate, Lysa.


LIZZY:

Lysa, you’re doing a great job with this story. I love the similarities and the differences between A and Aus. Cordy’s interactions with both of them are fascinating. I can’t decide where you plan to take this story. I am absolutely riveted.


SI_CRAZY:

Amazing chapter!!! This fic just gets better and better. I loved the way you wrote Angelus and Willow interaction. Now I can’t wait to read the next part and see how will Angelus and Cordy conversation be. So, please, post again soon.

PART 19

Lysa,
As always you ahve outdone yourself with this i think that what we want though is a littlke more action i think that Angel wants a little action too but not with Buffy

Wonderful chapter, Lysa!!!! You’re doing a damn good job. Please, post more soon.


HELEN:

Hi Lysa

Loved it as usual, everything from the conversations and ‘complaints’ *wink* to well everything.

I love this fic – I may have mentioned that

Hugs, Helen


CALIFI:

I’ve gone on and on and on and on about this fic – and this part is perrrrrfect! Alsways amazes me when you wonder if its ‘okay’, because its not – it’s more than ‘okay’ – its brilliant, wonderful, smoochy sexy hot dark – Angel jealousy is just sooo sexy as hell, Aus is so sweethotcute [ack! did I just say that?] Cordy is WOW!- no wonder they both want her so bad!

Cannot wait for the next parts- wow, pains me to wait! I’m just waiting for A to cross the line too much, and C/Aus reaction to it!


GILLY:

Yeah, another great part, I love how you write both A’s and C, her reactions are spot on.

Loved this part:

QUOTE

“To tell Angel to keep his ears to himself. To say…I don’t know…that it wasn’t us. It was…stray cats.”

QUOTE

Laughing, the vampire revealed, “Those cats can pronounce my name rather well.”

Angel is going to explode soon, and give in?, (I hope)


TIPDIP:

Wow!

Another great chapter, Lysa!

Enjoyed the conversation between C/Aus…among other things…

Can’t wait for the next chapter..

FANGGIRL:

Wow Not only is this fic HOT!!! I love me some C/Aus but… the image you portray is so wonderful… This chapter I believe is the best fanfic I have read on that scale. You are talented… so I say…More now please…. and if it has to be many more chapters so be it
Jill


ZANITA:

This just get better and better. Angel’s angst is building to a fever pitch and here’s me hoping he boils over soon!


CHRISTY:

I haven’t finished backreading the previous chapters yet, but I couldn’t resist reading ahead!! I am totally in love with your Angelus. I need one of my very own. His sensitivity mixed with the bad ass vamp takes my breath away, and leaves me laying in a puddle of drool. I loved this chapter, and along with the others I’ve read. I gotta try to catch up real soon!! And what did you say somewhere??? Is it this story or your other one that you are going to take time away from?? Whats the deal?? Cuz I want more of this soon!!!!!!!!!!!


DAMNSKIPPY:

Wow, that was Wuthering Heights imagery good. Loved how brave Cordy was as Aus growled and stalked around her. And the picture of Angel watching her from the window with the moonlight…sooooo good.

How long can Angel keep his vampire down??? Post soon!!!

It is Promise of the Night that I have on hold temporarily. I want to finish Double or Nothing first. DoN is definitely my priority right now. I have most of the next Chapter already written, but I’m squeezing in a little extra C/Aus in between. Will probably post it this weekend.

Promise of the Night (don’t know if you’ve read it over at ST) is a sequel to Open Invitation where Angelus tricks Cordelia into letting him into her house and he ends up vamping her. PotN is basically a Vamp Cordy story with Angelus and/or Angel in it. The original ending is a C/Aus one, but I decided that I wanted to write 2 alternate endings. One where she ends up with Angel and another one where Vamp Cordy ends up with a soul.

Most of the notes for those 2 alternate endings may have been eaten up by my recent computer problems, so it will take me a while to reconstruct those from my hand written notes.


FANGIRL:

Lysa Hon

You work is worth waiting for…. although I don’t like too… It is great to hear that you are planning two endings for Promise I love that story and DoN is keeping me happy until you can get that posted. Your work is super super it would make Angelus growl for more and that’s sayin something.

Thank you for clearing that up for me. I think I have read a part of Promise, but it must have been one of the many I started reading and lost track of. I will look for it and catch up on that when I’m all caught up on DoN.

Though the trees whispered their secrets with the rustling of their leaves, her ears listened to other tunes.

I just loved that line. I can hear, see, feel the scene you write so well.

Voyeur Angel? Mmm poor baby, the tension is really building there and with no release coming in the form of little miss likes to slay.

Loved it all, thank you so much. I look forward to the next part.

NC2224:

Another outstanding chapter…

Once again you had me hooked and I read and re-read this chapter. I am absolutely loving C/Aus. Don’t get me wrong, I feel bad for Angel, but he needs to work out his issues with Buffy and stop spying on his bro. Hopefully, you’ll work out something that doesn’t leave anyone out in the cold — well, I wouldn’t mind Buffy being left in a blizzard
And the steamy sex scene left me panting for more. Those two are just hot, hot, hot!
You said you were almost done with chapter 20. Does that mean it will posted shortly? I’ll try to wait patiently, but I can’t promise anything.


IMPRESS:

Lysa…hun…that was….*whew*. You write C/Aus so well. And I agree it sucks Angelus can’t claim her the way he wants to. *sigh* And Angel…how long is it going to take before he snaps and takes what or rather who, he really wants.

Glad you posted it early. Now bring on 20.


KATRINA:

Lysa, again with another fabulous chapter in a wonderful story. I bow down to your genius.

I love the way Cordy chased Angelus, ignoring the pain and the cold. And how she enticed him out; she has such inner strength and intuition. Her biting him and making their claim official was really touching (and hot). And when Angelus calls her baby, I just go all warm inside, it’s so tender.

quote:

Reeling her back into the sphere of his embrace, Angelus settled his arms around her waist. “There’s a hot shower upstairs with your name on it. After you’re properly dried and fluffed, I’m going to toss and tumble you into that huge bed of ours.”

Mm tossing and tumbling can’t wait. Great job, thank you so much for sharing with us.


IZZYCHASE:

Great job, Lysa!

This is arguably my favorite chapter so far. The garden scene was so dark, gothic, passionate, and steamy at the same time- reminds me of Anne Rice’s Savage Garden of Vampires… very gothic touch, Lysa!

I loved the way Cordy “made it up to Angelus”: way to get his attention, Cordy!

The C/Aus is perfect right now, although I do wish there is a way for Angel to resolve his angst problems.

I’m so glad you did a scene out in the garden- I was secretly hoping for that, since Cordy and Angelus pretty much did it in every room of the mansion. 😛 Adds a very vampiric and gothic touch!


CELESTE:

I love this story!!! and while I love the relationship between Angelus and Cordy…I do want Angel to be with Cordy. I feel so bad for him….poor guy can’t catch a break. Angelus comes and wins the heart of an beautiful woman, a woman who accepts Angelus all the way. Something I really think Angel wants and needs. UGH!!! Its so hard to decide who to keep Cordy with and with your writing I’m going back and forth between wanting her with Angelus or Angel. You rock!!! Can’t wait for the next chapter!!!!


SCOOBYSNAX:

i love this damn story


HELEN:

PARTS 20 & 21

WOW, speechless totally hot smut, Lysa

Phew, OK need to clear my screen and unfizzle my wits. WhIle I’m here tho, Yay Angel’s starting to butt in and Cordy’s noticing him. hmmm trouble’s a brewin’ me thinks.

Post more soon !

TIPDIP:

Another amazing chapter, Lysa!

Loved the smut scene between C/Aus and the ST between C/A. What’s the girl gonna do now…? I loved the scene where Angel tied her wrists w/the scarf! He knows what he wants!
She has to know that Angel wants her and the thought alone is getting her aroused….to where Angelus even knows…

Wow! What a triangle!

And poor Buffy? Someones feeling left out (sing-song).

What a great way of waking up finding 2 more chapters done, Lysa!

Great job!
Cammy


NAIRI:

WOW!
Amazing chapter as always Lysa, very hot . Loved the way A/C reacted to one another in the store, looks like Angel is planning someting, and somehow i don´t think Cordy will mind if he does. Maybe Cordy will get to call him master after all.
Once again i love this fic and can´t wait to read the next part, please post again soon.
Nairi


LUCKYLYN:

Damn, Lysa, you do know what a soulless vampire likes. I’m loving that you’ve got the two vamps switching places. Aus is so caring and tender (for the most part) and Angel is turning into his evil alter ego. Are the two going to meet somewhere in the middle? On top of Cordy? *teehee*

Keep writing, babe. I can’t wait to see when vamps collide!!


CALIFI:

Darn! Everyone’s said what I wanna say – so can’t wait till Angel loses it *wibble*

Brilliant, brilliant. Soooo can’t wait *tongue hanging out*


KATRINA:

Wow another great part Lysa, just wow. I would quote my favourite parts, but that would just be too many.

I love how Angel is getting more touchy towards Cordy and how she is beginning to notice him too. And I just totally love your Angelus, that man-pire is incredible, hot, sweet, tender, funny, sensitive. I want one. Tension is building, oh yeah, can’t wait to see where your incredible mind takes this.


CHRISTY:

Angel’s slipping…..he’s gonna lose it soon…. I can feel it!

Lysa, I wuv you, hehe……..your amazing as always. I can see why/how you have a hard time writing this stuff….good god…..this would melt a 1000 ton glacier


SUNSCORCHED:

You said you had lotsa Aus action and you seriously delivered didn’tcha?! Loved this part.. of course I loved this part there was Aus smut in it!

But not just that, we have Angel really starting to lose the plot and we have Angelus noticing while Buffy is still snorkling in denial. Damn, that river must be nice eh? The smackdown between Angel/Angelus is sure to be severely nail biting and I for one can’t wait.

You are taking this fic to new levels Lysa, you are wasted on fanfic I tell ya.


SI_CRAZY:

Good chapters!!! I loved this part! The sex scene and the bondage little game at the store, were really HOT!! Hope you post more soon.


CALIFI:

PARTS 20 & 21

The Green Demon raises it’s ugly head!

This wasn’t enough *whine* I could read this allll day, Lysa! Loved the Mall scene and the interaction going on between A/C/B – brilliant!
More soon please.


NC2224:

You just made my Sunday morning…

Another outstanding couple of chapters. The sex scene was steamy as always. And you have captured C/Aus perfectly. But imho, Angel is cruising for a bruisin’. He is a all touchy feely, grabby hands. I’m just waiting for Angelus to snap– I thought for sure the little bondage game between C/A would have been it. And I’m still rooting for C/Aus. Can’t wait for more.


IMPRESS:

*pounces* It’s mine…it’s all mine! *evil laughter*

*clears throat* I mean Great job Lysa. That was so..hot. I can’t decide though, which I want more, Angelus snapping or Angel snapping. Cordy to end up with Angelus or Angel. Can I have both?


HELEN:

Hi Lysa

LOVE this part, hot stuff always and your smut rocks chica.

Hugs, Helen


DAMNSMIPPY:

The best Aus/C sex ever!! And I love the subtle reblending of A/Aus personalities. Whatever is Cordy going to do. Torn between two lovers…

More!!!


RUBY:

wow this story just gets better and better! Can’t wait for more! Ruby


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapters!!! Full of smut and really hot!!! I’m looking forward to read more.


KATRINA:

Mmm Lysa smut. Loved this part as usual. I like how tender Angelus can be, ensuring that Cordy was thoroughly warm and ok before begining to ‘claim’ her.

I liked Angel tying her up too, that was a great scene, and Buffy is so clueless it’s funny.

Keep up the great work.


DANNYBLUE:

I want Cordy to end up with Angel…I think. Because Cordy with Angelus is rockin’ at the moment. But I’m loving the signs of jealousy with Angel. And that whole bondage thing had my screen sizzling.

Things are getting even more intense, and I likes it!

Looking forward to the next chapter.


PSYCHOFILLY:

I dunno, Danielle. I kinda want to see her with both for a little while. Why choose, when you can have a threesome? Though, I guess it would be a little weird sharing with your brother. Hell. I don’t know.


AMZ_da_ANGEL:

I really am hooked to this story. The C/Aus is *hot* and the C/A sexual tension…whoa. *fans self*

Can’t wait 4 more.


LYSA:

I love you guys!!! All this feedback is great. Keep it up…I’m addicted to it ya know.

It is so much fun writing Double or Nothing. You’re all in a tizzy. There’s the pro-Angel faction, the pro-Angelus faction, the pro-threesome faction and even an anti-threesome faction.

I can’t wait to see how this ends. Oh. Wait a minute. I’m writing this aren’t I? *Gulp* Guess that means that I have to pick.

Truthfully, I already know what’s going to happen. I just have to get you there. *Grins Evilly*

Only one thing left to officially cover from Scorchy’s challenge and then the rest is up to me. *nervous butterflies*

Thanks again for reading!

ANDREA:

Lysa, I replied to this, this morning but my reply is not here for some strange reason. Weird. Never mind. Loving this can’t wait for more.

As you know, I’m torn between wanting more C/Aus and Angel showing Cordy exactly what him being her master means *g*.


N2224:

I know I already responed, but…

I’ve been mulling it over. And while I am a gung-ho C/Aus fan in this case, I guess I will *settle* for a hot steamy threesome if I have to. Who am I kidding…bring on the hot steamy threesome. And after that, I’ll decide which ship I’m on. Just don’t make Cordy cheat on Angelus. I’d be so disappointed in her. Ok,ok, no more opinions or pressure from me…at least until the next chapter.


CALIFI:

PARTS 22, 23, 24

Just a quick note b/f I read it, Lysa: re: pic url…. if you delete the bit where it says ‘sachielk’ and type ‘angelcalgoteam’ it will show itself.

Right, off to read!
I’m back, and I still love it – even more! Angel is a naughty boy, and i love it! surprised Buffy seemed so accepting, but that probably won’t last [i hope! ]

Brilliant, Lysa *sigh* loving this sooo much!


SUNSCORCHED:

Hot Diggity Dog Ziggity, what the thought of AngelTwins does to me!!!

Damn Lysa, where do I start? The beach scene between B/A was HOT, yet again you managed to pull off TV worst couple and made it a joy to read! Excellently done on that score.

The beginning of end for the Slayer and her vamp methinks!

QUOTE
Cordelia suddenly saw the pool table in a new light

Me too funnily enough!!

I loved how Angelus finally got to smack Angel in his mush, I’m surprised it never happened sooner. Though there was that time in the library just after they were seperated! Heehee, I loved that line!

“What’s the matter? Did the Slayer swallow your balls the last time she went down on you?!”

Or something like that anyway!!!

Yes, the pressure has built and the eruption is gonna be super spectacular complete with fire works and lava bombs. You can so tell Volcano has been playing on my VCR!!!

I got a shock when it was Angelus to approach Giles about Angel’s lack of control.

QUOTE
“I invite you in, Angelus.”

I bet Giles despised himself for saying that. An excellent ending to three thrilling parts! I was just about to stalk you for this but you deserve a break. So sit back with a Kit Kat and cup of steaming hot Typhoo tea while you chill and bathe in your success at having thrilled us all!!!


HELEN:

Lysa–  Hot damn, what Scorchy said, unbelievable and not to mention chilling at the end. I have no idea which way this is gonna twist and I can’t wait to find out. —-Helen


NAIRI:

WOW!
Lysa, i posted feedback on ST but wanted to tell you again that this fic is amazing. I loved it and want more of it.
Nairi


DAMNSKIPPY:

The twists and turns and slowly building tension with all four of them is amazing. You have such patience as a writer. Brava!

I second the beach scene being hot as hell. My inner bitch did chortle at the fact that Buffy didn’t get to come. *heehee* Thanks for that little detail.

Poor, Cordy. Angel hurt her feelings. Damn stupid vampire!

Wow! I can’t wait to find out what’s up. What Giles feared would happen. I’m all tingly with anticipation!


CHRISTY:

Lysa dear, all I have to say is….more, and quickly!!! I’m dying to know “what we feared has come to pass”


KATRINA:

QUOTE
Angel heard the plea in her voice and watched her lips tremble only inches from his own. “Friends? We’ve never been friends, sweetheart.”

That was so sad, when he said that, but in a sexy foreboding kind of way. The sad comes from the fact that we later find out he really hurt Cordy’s feelings, damn him, I’m glad Angelus punched him.

I’m intrigued by Angelus going to Giles, what is it that they fear? Hmm great place to leave us.

The beach scene was great, Angel was all forceful and sexy and take charge, oops got a little distracted there.

Wonderfu job as usual Lysa, you maintain such a high standard in your writing, it’s incredible.


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapter!!! Angel is losing it, right???? Please, tell me!!!!
Ok, I know I have to wait to read it in the next chapters, but please, post them soon.


GILLY:

Yeah, Lysa more great parts.

It’s really hotting up now, loved the hot beach scene and Buffy loosing out. te he

Angelus going to Giles he must be desperate!

I’m dying to know how you’re going to resolve this, but not too soon I hope, after all we don’t want it to end.


JENBUG13:

PARTS 22, 23, 24
That was great!! Can’t wait to see what happens next.


NAIRI:

OMG! Lysa that was amazing, Angel is really losing it isn´t he. I loved the way you wrote the argument between him and Angelus. I can hardly wait to read the next part. I hope you will explain what is going on with Angelus and Giles, what is it that they fear. I have so many questiones runing around in my head that need to be answered, so please have mercy and post again soon.
Nairi


CELESTE:

OH MY!!! That was soooo good!!! I can’t wait to find out what’s the big thing Giles was talking about and who Cordy ends up choosing!!! Don’t keep us waiting to long…thanks!!! You rock!


ANDREA:

And you stopped there because?

Excellent chapters Lysa. I really can’t wait to see what happens next. The C/A in that chapter was really hot. Poor Cordy, Angel can be such a dumbass sometimes.

Please post more soon


AMZ_da_ANGEL:

I gotta agree with And, and you stopped there because?

LOL, excellent chapter Lysa, I am really loving this so far, the way you’ve written this is just wow. I’m definately hooked and squeal everytime I see a new chapter is up.

Angel is definately creeping me out and I can’t wait 2 see how things go with C/Aus and B/A and if there ever will be C/A/Aus


KATRINA:

quote:
“So, what we feared has come to pass,” Giles accepted the realization calmly having expected this for some time. Stepping back, he opened the door wider. “I invite you in, Angelus.”

Wow Lysa, fantastic job as usual, and what a place to end. Love it.

I enjoyed reading Buffy’s hypocrisy in having sex on the beach (mm sounds like a cocktail ). And Angel’s serious degeneration and lack of control is really powerful.

Loved how Angelus was so upset cos Angel hurt Cordy by saying he wasn’t her friend. I could keep going there are so many bits I love, as usual. Fantastic writing, I’m really looking forward to more, hopefully soon.


CORDELIA’S DESTINY:

Wow, Lysa! Great chapter. I’m so looking forward to how you’re going to wrap all of this up. In this part, I really liked how you showed that Angel is becoming darker and darker. It’s almost like he and Angelus have flipped roles or something. And I love that you’re finally paying off all the mysterious hushed whispers from the beginning of the fic about the deal with the Morae. Can’t wait to see if our two fab vamps will be fused together again. Wow! Great writing.

Like Amz_da_Angel, I totally get psyched when I see that new chapters are posted. Can’t wait for more! Please post soon.

Jules


IMPRESS:

Dammit, how dare you leave it there?

Seriously great chapter. Angel’s loss of control is so…chilling, Cordelia’s being hurt by not being Angel’s friend, Angelus and Giles meeting, hell it was all good. Can’t wait for more.


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapter!!! I can’t wait to see what Giles and Angelus are talking about. Hope you post more soon.


RACHELLE:

Yipee! Kicking booty as usual, Lysa


LUCKYLYN:

This is amazing. I can’t wait to see what Giles and Angelus have to talk about. Poor Angel he’s trying so hard to resist his feelings.


RUBY:

How can you just leave it there like that? I can’t wait to see what happens next! Please update soon! —–Ruby


HELEN:

What can I say I love this fic, the tension between Cordy and Angel was brilliantly written and the B/A was scary which is how I prefer it. I CANNOT wait for the next part, so hurry up with it ‘kay. —–Hugs, Helen


FRAZI:

Took you long enough. I just can’t imagine the yumminess that you’re created. I mean suddenly I’m seeing role switching with Angel and Angelus! Delicious! You soooo rock. MOre soon? I can resort to blackmail


ATHLANTIS:

Wow, you so left me hanging on last chapter! I hope Cordy ends with angelus though, Angel is so been a dumbass as always, Cordy should call Angelus next time Angel is trying to make a move on her, that would so piss Angelus off!


CALIFI:

PARTS 25, 26, 27

Oh, my! *swoon*

A C/A fic is not the same without a spanking!

Loved the talk between B/A, it was exellent and perfect. The kitchen scene had me majorly hot and bothered – whew! LOVE Angel in this *sigh* I want some NOW!

I know Cordy loves Angelus, but how can she possibly resist Angel the way he is now? -Mad, Bad and dangerous to know, as Hely commented on the other day.

You are always generous with your chapters, but it’s still never enough! lol! Already I’m waiting for yet more.

-Did I tell you how much I love Angel in this?

Again for the spanking – I think that should be obligatory in a Dark Angel fic, cos we all love it sooo much- and that’s kinda scary!

Keep writing, and thanks for some more ideas for my DisCord! *goes off to do some angst, baby! *


IMPRESS:

That was…WOW. Damn that was HOT & GOOD and a great many more wonderful descriptions that my brain just can’t come up with.

The talk between b and A was well done, and I liked the fight between the two bros. The kitchen scene…well that was just…yummy.

Oh and I just adored Cordy walking out of the house.

MORE NOW…er I mean SOON.


SUNSCORCHED:

I have so much to say about this so here I go…

Part 25

The first thing to captivate me here was the conversation between Giles and Angelus, it was strained but yet civilised though I would have loved to have seen Giles’ reaction when Aus told him about Angel biting Buffy. Excellent portrayal of both characters here and you got it just right so well done!

Poor Cordy being left on her own to deal with the nightmare with only Angel to rescue her from it. There are times when I really envy her. Bitch!!! Loved how it was Angelus’ turn to walk on the purring scene, how he managed not to kill his brother is beyond me.

QUOTE
Lifting her hazel gaze, Cordelia’s mouth trembled almost imperceptibly as she gave in to her curiosity, “Did she like it? Angelus said if it’s done right it can make you both come.”

I’d give anything to hear this particular line on the show! I could so imagine the expression DB would have to pull, i don’t know what’s more scary the fact that I want it to happen or the fact that I can picture it!! Thought the bedroom scene was a combination of hotness with the addition of the biting talk, it was sweet with the way he could talk to her and it had the right amount of tension between the two.

Part 26

The Bronze, a few pieces in this had me giggling as your writing once again had my brain filled with images!

I could so see Angel hopping around on the dance floor doing the bunny hop, his fingers curled up like paws and a pair of ears on his head!! Heehee, you have to stop writing stuff like that Lysa or one of these days I’m gonna choke on my Typhoo!

Loved the way Angelus taunted Buffy, and well done for having him call her ‘Buff.’

QUOTE
“I always thought it would be me, Buff. Though I promise you I would have finished the job, not just taken a taste.”

I can not begin to tell you how much I loved this line, God he’s such a oooh ya know?! Another image I got was poor Angel being sandwiched next between two smooching couples and sitting there with a very unimpressed look on his face!

Willow and Oz would be on one side while Cordy and Angelus on the other, that would be hilarious and makes me wish ME had hired you instead of JW!!

The entire conversation between Angel and Buffy was simply wonderful, the characterisation was spot on with the darkness in Angel making him almost remorseless in some of the things he said. You brought out how he reacted on instinct by having him circle his prey and you had the Slayer instinct kicking off in response. I was desperate to see them throwing down.

Part 27

What can I say apart from hot-a-rama! The kitchen scene sizzled, the following fighting sizzled and the spanking was delicious! There’s a lot to be said for being spanked by a vampire and yet again I say Cordy’s a bitch, a lucky one none the less!! I could imagine how she would feel being treated like a piece of property being fought over and I’m in agreement that it sucks so it was a good thing she walked out.

She is coming back though, right?!

Loved DarkAngel and how he was expressing his rights over the Order of Aurelius and Cordy, loved how Angelus denied him those rights. It seems to me as if Angelus’ Bad Boy title is up for grabs and the way his brother is I’m in two minds as to who I’m betting on!

Again another three sublime chapters in this hot/funny/wonderful fic of yours and I just have to say how much I’m loving this. You deserve so much more than a meddle, how about a yearly subscription to NekkidAngel magazine and a company car?!

MORE!!!


LYSA:

QUOTE
how about a yearly subscription to NekkidAngel magazine and a company car?!
Would that be the car being sold on E-Bay….with DB in it as my oh-so-hot chauffeur????

If not, just fork over the NekkidAngel subscription and I’ll still be a happy woman!
As for spankings and the Bunny Hop, I’m not sure which creates a darker image in my head. That dance is damn scary if you ask me!

Smoochies for all the feedback.


HELEN:

I’m doing your trick and just read this in work, so forgive the lack of quoting DAMMIT, I loved every bit of it.. I was going to wait til I got home to give FB, but just had to login straight away!, sod the IT department.

That was so f**king hot, it was untrue. I can’t even express how much I loved the talk between Buffy and Angel and Angel and Cordy and Angel and Angelus etc, etc etc.

As for the spankin Hmmm just why is that so hot?? Dunno don’t care.

This is so damn intriguing and exciting I’m still jumping inside and out. Please post the next part soon.

Luv, Helen


TIPDIP:

The Angel in this fic was *hot*! And the spanking……? Hotter!
Post soon!
Cammy


DAMNSKIPPY:

I’m pretty much speechless. I marvel at your ability to ever so slowly build and build and build the tension without it ever dragging. I second the scenes everyone else as already discussed. Plus, the image of Aus and Cordy in the Bronze going at it, her back against Angel’s arm, her hand on Angel’s thigh, his eyes closed smelling her hair and the fantasy we all know he was having…OMG, that was so good. I know, lame comment, but whew!

Damn, girl. That’s all I can say. Damn!


HESPERUS:

Lysa, that was f***king su-perb! Each new chapter just blows me away. I love the way that their personalities have swapped over, each acting the way you expect his twin to. Kinda felt sorry for Angelus in this one though.


NAIRI:

How do you begin to describe your feelings about a fic that is so amazing it just leaves you numb. That is how i feel at this moment. Lysa this was sexy, hot and did i say hot. Loved the conversation between Giles and Angelus, who would have known that there would come a time when Angelus would be the voice of reason. I loved the talk between Angel and Buffy, it was about time and for some strange reason i even felt sorry for Buffy. The scene with the wiped cream, had me cheking my fridge for some. Then i remembered f***k no Angel here.
The spanking well that was the topping.
Please post again soon, i need some more.
Nairi


CHRISTY:

Lysa!! This was well worth the wait….Damn girl! Where to begin here…the hotness at the bronze was, well, hot. Cordy inbetween her two vamps, how sexy, even if Angel wasn’t getting as much action as Aus. Oh, and the kitchen scene…Wow…Angel is acting more like Aus than Aus is these days. I kinda felt for Aus there when he figured out what went on in the kitchen. And I feel for Angel as well, he wants her so bad. I’m torn dammit, I love Aus, and I love Angel, especially when Angel is being all dominant and sexy as hell!!
I am awestruck Lysa. These 3 chapters were amazing, and there wasn’t even any sex! I simply cannot wait for more!! I want fricking spoilers here!!


NOBODY’S ANGEL:

Lysa, I must say that I spent the day catching up on this fic and it’s absolutely brilliant!! I love every bit of this and I cannot wait for more more more!!! Great job and keep it up!!


GILLY:

Wow, more great chapters, Lysa. Seriously hot and intense. Superb.

I’m wondering how you are going to resolve this without someone getting hurt.

Is she going home dressed like that?? Can’t wait for more- please keep it coming.


KATRINA:

Mental note if I insist on coming late to the party all the good feedback will be already said. I echo all the above. Lysa I think I love you. This was brilliant. And mm there was spanking, always a bonus.

Loved the way you captured Cordy’s feelings so well in the kitchen, the struggle she was having and the way she went up to explain things to Angelus. This was so wonderful. Thanks.

Hugs

Kat


SI_CRAZY:

Amazing chapters!!!! Right now this is my favourite fic. Please, post the next chapter soon.


IMPRESS:

PARTS 25, 26, 27

I left you FB at AO but I had to say again.

DAMN this is GOOD! I am soo looking forward to seeing how the two vamps work out who gets Cordelia. And looking forward to seeing how Cordelia deals with the two vamps.

MORE.MORE.MORE.MORE.MORE.MORE.MORE.MORE.
NOW.NOW.NOW.NOW.NOW.NOW.NOW.NOW. OR
SOON.SOON.SOON.SOON.SOON.SOON.SOON.SOON.


ANDREA:

That was really great Lysa. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen. Angel and Angelus fighting over what Angel did to Cordy was great.

I’m glad Buffy and Angel have split up, bet you didn’t see that coming lol

Please write more soon, I’m very looking forward to seeing what happens next


RUBY:

Damn I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Please update soon

Ruby


LUCKYLYN:

Post more soon cause I’m dying to find out what happens next. How will Angel and Angelus come to an agreement about Cordy and what will they have to do to get back in her good graces and make her return? This is great.


CORDELIA’S DESTINY:

Wow. I always say that when I reply to this story, but just, WOW.

Can’t ever say enough how much I freakin’ love this. You’re the fic goddess. Makes me squeal everytime I see another posting.

I love how you’re making Angel so dark, how he’s totally obsessed with Cordelia and how she can’t help but be drawn to him despite her love for Angelus. I can’t wait for the payoff with the deal with the morae. Will they be fused back together? Will Cordelia have to choose? Will one or both of them die? Will Angel turn into Angelus and vice versa? Ahhh!! the possibilities have my head spinning.

And damn, girl, just when I think I’ve seen it all, you bring out the leather and whipped cream. Jiminey Christmas, that was somethin’ else. Hot, Hot, Hot!

keep it comin’! Pretty please, and soon!!

I’m not really coherent enough to add anything to that at the moment – I’m going to need a few minutes to get over that one

Love where you’re taking this


RUBY:

quote:

Everything that Angel told him that day in his office suggested that this deal with the Moirae could quickly go sour.

That sounds very bad!

Loved these chapters, they were beyond hot
Ruby


AMBROSIA:

I have only one thing to say: more, more, more!


SI_CRAZY:

Great!!! Amazing!!!! Good!!!! Excellent!!!!
These are the best chapters ever!!!!! I need you to post the next part soon, or else I`m gonna go nuts with the waiting


BIBLIOPHILE:

I just started reading this fic tonight and it was so good I couldn’t stop until I caught up with all the parts. The only problem I have is that I couldn’t find the thread for Parts 3 & 4 so I don’t know what the deal is with the Moirae. But even without that I’m loving the story and can’t wait to see who Cordy picks.


KATRINA:

Another fantastic instalment, but then when isn’t something you write fantastic? Never that’s when.

I love how you’ve slowly developed Angel’s feelings for Cordelia and his growing darkness. I love how Angelus is the voice of reason, approching Giles of all people.

quote:
Champagne and roses weren’t in the cards tonight

Love that line.

I loved the thought of seeing Angel and Angelus fighting and the spanking? Oh yeah, always good.

quote:
Angelus fumed at his twin, “See what you did? You have no business kissing her that way.”

“At least I kissed her!” Angel pointed out. “You spanked her in front of me.”

They are so like children. I can’t wait to see where this goes. Fantastic job as always Lysa.


SCOOBYSNAX:

angel and angelus are the only two men i would ever allow to have me at once. cordy is so lucky.
LOVE the story


LIOSLAITH:

PARTS 28, 29, 30

Oh boy is it just me or is every parts getting tenser and tenser????

Angel is definitely loosing it BIG TIME now!!!

It seems without Angelus he is having mucho problems controlling his demon side. His soul is loosing control to his vampire side, it seems Angel needs Angelus to control that side of him.

So I guess that answers one question, eh? So much for Angel not needing Angelus, I love that about this fic!! The fact that many stories see the complete removal of Angelus and how Angel is in complete control wihout his interferance and it’s all coming up roses!!! This shows the complete opposite, that losing Angelus from his personality can have the opposite effect and Angel seems to lose control of his demon … ignoring his soul in the process.

But Cordy isn’t gonna leave RIGHT? RIGHT? RIGHT?
Don’t think for one momento that I haven’t noticed how crueler your cliffhangers have become with every new post of this fic???!!!
Look forward to the next part(s) … want to see how Aus reacts to what Angel did (and tried to do) to Cordy …. and how Buffy (and the others) react to Angel’s descent into darkness … also do we learn now what they told Giles might happen by splitting them?? But we are seeing it more and more from Angel in the last two sets of postings aren’t we?

But no hurry? You’ll have it up soon … like an hour right???!!!
Lio


HELEN:

WOW Lysa

What can I say, blown away much. Such tension and the way you have written this is just outstanding and superb. Poor Cordy stuck in the middle, (am I kidding oh to have such a problem) between Angel and Angelus.

I echo Lio Angel really does not Angelus doesn’t he, how sad is it that it doesn’t seem to be vice versa, poor Angel.

You have taken this fic places that is so addictive to anyone who reads it. Cannot describe how much I NEED the next parts. Geeze Hun would begging help!

BFSH,Helen


NAIRI:

And you stop there because? Are you tryeing to kill me?
Lysa this was amazing, fabulous and breathtaking. Angel is loosing it, and loosing it fast, the demon in him is taking over and you have shown in the last couple of chapters that the soul isn´t anough. Angel needs Angelus more than he will ever realise. I have all this questiones in my head that need to be answered, like what will happen when Angelus finds out ? Will Cordy leave town and the two men who love her? Will Angel go ahead and claim her against her wishes or will she give in and let him? Oh god for the sake of my sanity please post again soon.
Nairi


NOBODY’S ANGEL:

I second what everyone has said. More soooooooon!!!!

Hey, check it out! It’s Angel and Angelus fighting over Cordy!! Sorry…severe lack of sleep…LOL

Great chapters! LOVE IT! And you so need to post more VERY VERY soon!!


TIPDIP:

(Well..these thud smilies are a couple of “I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy” bows to you, Lysa)

I don’t even know where to begin. This was just absolutely fantastic. I’d quoted and say something about each quote, but I’m afraid my response to your fic would be as long as these chapters.

So let me end this by telling you how hot this was. I loved the sexy interchange between Angel and Cordelia and OMFG! Angel was so dark/beige that nearly peed myself wondering how far he was going to go with Cordy!

And Cordy might leave? NOOOO! Oh and the final promise that Angel made towards her:

QUOTE
“This is more of a game than you know, Cordelia. I’m playing to win,” Angel told her somewhat cryptically. “Maybe this wasn’t the time for us, sweetheart, but soon it will be. I promise you. Next time, there won’t be interruptions.”

GGaaaahahh!

My hat off to you, my dear!

Post soon please?

Hugs

Oh, I adored this. I loved Willow’s, “You said no to naked Angel and whipped cream.” made me burst out laughing. Angelus needs to take a bit more affirmative action or he’s gonna lose his girl. But your Angel is freaking me out. I love this story and I wait with ever decreasing patience for next weeks installment!


CHRISTY:

Oh my! What is going on with Angel?? (hehe, we have new smilies!!!) Angelus needs to step in here and do something before Angel goes totally off the wall. I hope Angelus stops Cordy from leaving

Ohhh, and hot stuff outside of Harm’s house!!

Post very soon Lysa!


CALIFI:

See? Told you Dark Angel would have all the girls humming in semi-O’s I’m right there too!

I just love your Dark Angel – yummy yum yum! Give him to me and i will be sooo happy ever after [imagine having HIM all to yourself! Dwool!]

I know it’s not pc, but – wowow – dominant Angel!

Waiting is sooo hard to do, and i wanna see him claim her – be it neck or thigh – both would do me! *swoon*

So here is a reminder! more soon! mwah! & thanks for such a titillating post!


GILLY:

Superb and intense Lysa. Is Cordy gonna escape or will she be stopped, and who by?

Is it my imagination or is Willow getting turned on with thoughts of ‘punishment’?

What a place to leave it, please post more of this truely wonderful fic soon.


IMPRESS:

I can only say I agree with everyone else. This fic is…wow. I’m sooo addicted and need another fix VERY SOON!


SI_CRAZY:

Amazing chapters!!!! This fic just gets better and better. Angel is starting to freak me out, he is really scary here. Hope you post more soon.


KATRINA:

Wow Lysa, great job as per usual.

Loved it all. I really liked Willow here. She really would make a bad minion, god Angelus called her at 4.00 a.m. and she doesn’t get back to him til 5.00 p.m. And loved her vivid imagination, I think she needs to speak to Oz about needing some ‘punishment’, seems to be oft in her thoughts these days.

And I feel so sorry for poor Angelus. Angel is very very bad (in a yummy way).

Can’t believe Giles has Willow and Xander on stalking duty, did he not realise they would get made within 5 minutes? I can just picture them trying to be stealthy, so not happening.

Loved it all, thank you so much.


SUNSCORCHED:

*sighs* I love this fic!! Prepare to read a lot here Lysa…

Part 28

QUOTE
“It’s a little early for Halloween, darling. Even then, I doubt that outfit would be acceptable at the Country Club’s Autumn Costume Ball.”

LOL, how humiliating would it be to get caught by your parents wearing a leather corset with accompanying whipped cream? Poor Cordy, what a night she must’ve had! Being spanked by her bloke and then getting snazzed by her parents! If only they put that on the show eh?!!

QUOTE
“Yes, you did,” her father looked red-faced with anger. “Is this what you’ve become in the few months we’ve been away— a foul-mouthed slut?”

I really wanted Angel/Angelus to have heard this, then they coulda slapped him stupid.

QUOTE
“Talk to us, darling. Is there something we should know?”

Not a thing!!!

QUOTE
“As far as school goes, it’s not as if you really need to bother. There are oodles of handsome, rich and eligible young men. They’ll be falling all over themselves to catch you.”

“I’m already caught,” Cordelia responded dryly.

Loved that reply with a serious passion.

Loved the whole conversation with her parents, it’s exactly how I would imagine something like this would go. Both her parents were portrayed well, you could see the ulterior motives behind their tiny concern. Do they have ulterior motives? Are they gonna lose everything? Is Angel and Angelus gonna come to the rescue if they do? What else are her parents cooking up? Are they cooking anything up?

Only you can answer these questions hun and you better answer em quick before I blow a gasket!!!
Part 29
QUOTE

Willow was busily looking around at the house when she remembered the question. “Umm. Stays up at night. Yeah. Astronomy Club. We’re all into checking out those stars.”

LOL I can so see the whole of the SG all laying on their backs gazing up at the stars, arguing which is which! Go Willow for coming up with something half believeable!

QUOTE
“What are you— his minion?”

LOL again! Poor Willow having to play piggy-in-the-middle between C/Aus, that must have been fun for her. We all know what it’s like to be a go-between for a friend and her bloke. I remember when she chastised Angel for not going for coffee with Buffy, that gave me a few laughs!!!

QUOTE
“Angelus never said why you left him. Just that he loved you and wanted you back

Uh, I don’t know what melts my heart quicker Aus saying he loves her or Angel saying it… How about they both say it?

Poor Angelus he’s being punished for his punishment isn’t he?!!

QUOTE
“Duh!” Cordelia rolled her eyes thinking that Willow was probably envisioning her sneaking into the bathroom while Angel was in the shower. Sheesh! As if she’d ever even think of that.

Of course Cordy would never think of that. Oh look at that flying pig, wow it’s even blue with yellow polkadots…!!

QUOTE
“Oh.” Willow sounded a little disappointed.

C’mon Cor, give the dog a bone!!!

QUOTE
“You said no to naked Angel and whipped cream?”

Damned good question!

QUOTE
Having and imagination can be scary, Willow concluded

Or a whole lotta fun, I’d love to know what Willow would imagine now she’s playing for the home team!!

This part was funny in so many ways; the minion comments, Cordy proving her point about the thing with Angel and the end where Willow wonders if Oz would go for that! Now that Cordy knows about B/A’s break-up, what’s gonna happen now? What’s gonna happen the next time B/C see each other? Are we gonna see a catfight or a bitching smackdown?

Again questions only you can answer! Right, onto part 30…

Part 30

QUOTE
Until now, she hadn’t realized that vampires could be depressed, but it certainly looked that way to her.

Aww, I can picture Angelus sitting in a chair, his chin in his hands and pouting while thinking “Why did she leave me?” in a very depressing way! I don’t like the thought of him being depressed and so you have to fix it and make him not depressed!

QUOTE
“Did you say—,” Willow swallowed the words. Leather corset?

Poor Willow, she’s really getting her brain fried with all these naughty thoughts isn’t she? I don’t know whether to feel sorry for her or join in with the naughty mental images!!!

QUOTE
“Who do you think I am,” Willow suddenly snapped at him, putting her hands on her hips and glaring, “your minion?”

LOL!

QUOTE
“Xander’s thing isn’t my problem.”

No, it’s Angel’s thing you gotta worry about and where he’s gonna put his thing

QUOTE
Angel trailed a finger along the curve of her face, tilting her chin and caressing it in the same silky movement. “There are so many things I want tonight. So many things I’m going to do to you.”

Lucky bitch!

Okay I can’t quote anymore or I really will be here all day!!!

I love how Angel is all beige, it’s simply delicious and this part was nicely hot! Loved how Xander was the one to whack Angel over the head, though in a way I wanted Angelus to turn up so we could get some more vamp-on-vamp fighting!

Who’s gonna be the one to stop her from leaving? What’s gonna happen now that A/Aus are having a war amongst themselves? What’s gonna happen the next time Buffy sees Angel or Angelus? What’s gonna happen the next time Cordy sees Angelus?

Is the secret-keeping problem Willow has gonna be showing if Angelus asks her if she found Cordy or Angel? Will she tell him how she found them? If she does, how’s he gonna react?

Lysa you can not keep me in suspense anymore, I won’t let you. It’s wrong and evil and you need to hurry with the next part cus this is just brilliant in every way. Your characters are spot on, it’s well-written and it sizzles with hotness!

More please and more would be good now!!


KIMMERS:

Lysa replyed at the other board but love this and cant’ wait for more want to see Angel and Angelus reaction to Cordy leaving don’t thihnk that it’s going to be good at all
from Kimmers


DAMNSKIPPY:

Man, you love messing with us, don’t you? Angel’s going all demon bonkers, Angelus is using Willow as his minion, Cordy’s going to who knows where with the evil parents. Stop the world, I want to get off now!!!

I’m not sure who I feel sorrier for. They’ve all got valid feelings and how can Cordy NOT get the hots for both of them. Okay, you’ve got to wrap this up soon, because I just can’t take it anymore. You hear me??? NOW!!!

Pwwweeeasseee?


MANDERS-21:

for the first time ever I was cheering Xander on when he whacked Angel over the head, don’t get me wrong I don’t dislike dark Angel in fact I find him really sexy and love his “Im playing to win” ‘tude, but eventhough Cordy’s body was reacting she really did want it to end. I loved how I thought somebody might come along to her rescue (I was thinking Angelus), but not Xander, it just kinda came from leftfield (Sorry for my baseball analogy but the CUBS WON!!!) and I was just like OH! yeah! I likey that! Keep it comin

Amanda


RUBY:

PARTS 28, 29, 30

Oh my god. Wow! That was just wow.

I can’t believe Cordy is going to leave or try at least because somehow I very much doubt that Angelus and Angel will let her get very far.

Can’t wait to read more!!!

Ruby


LUCKYLYN:

Fantastic! I can’t wait for more.


NC2224:

I love this story….

But right now I’m not liking Angel or Cordelia very much. Angelus is getting screwed by his girlfriend (…and not literally b/c she’s doing someone else). Right now, I’m kinda wanting Angelus to kick Cordy to the curb. Not feeling her confusion — she’s IS cheating on her boyfriend. I love this story, but gawd Angel needs an ass-kicking. Can’t wait to read the next chapters. You are definitely stirring up some strong feelings with each passing chapter. Great job. Post more soon.


AMBROSIA:

Once again what a great part. I think Angelus needs to find someone else, Angel should be staked and Cordy should just leave. Seriously, I can’t wait to see where this goes, but I think Cordy needs to redeem herself, I’m feeling really sorry for Angelus.


SI-CRAZY:

Great chapters!!!! Angel has become really scary in this fic. I can’t wait to see if Cordy is really going to Europe. Hope you post more soon.


IMPRESS:

Wonderful. Simply wonderful. I’m torn between wanting C/Aus and C/A. Can I have both please? More of this wonderful fic soon.

Did I mention this is wonderful?


LIZZY:

Lysa, you are kick-ass! I love this story. And the Angel/Angelus turnaround was very well done. I can’t wait to see how this sticky situation is solved. Man, that Angel was too much. Creep-o-rama.


DANNYBLUE:

Well, we know I like Scary!Angel. (It balances out my Goofy-Family-Man!Angel love.) And I loved this. If I were in Cordy’s shoes, I’d run too. Of course, I’m hoping the guys don’t let her get far.

Looking forward to the next part.


ATHLANTIS:

OMG! this is soooooooo interesting, I’m getting so pissed at Angel right now. He is such an asshole. Angelus should find them know and kick his butt, oh, and give a hard punishment to Cordy and then sex ‘course. I’m soooooo loving this!!!!! please more soon, very very soon!!!
KATRINA:

Lysa, great job hun.

quote:
Concentrating for all of three seconds, Willow said, “Check. Got it. Naked Angel. Picturing that right now. Oh, my! Apparently, I have a very good imagination.”

Willow makes me laugh, and her preoccupation with punishment reminds me a little of her doppelganger

I too feel sorry for Angelus, I’m looking forward to seeing all the myriad of ways in which Cordy might make this up to him.

I can’t wait for what you have in store for us next, it’s sure to be wonderful.


CALIFI:

It must be hard for Cordy being put in that position – but thinking about it – isn’t A/Aus just one combination split down the middle? Cordy had a crush/feelings on Angel b/f the split – and that included both of them IMO, so is she really cheating? As I said – hard or what!

You mentioned to me that Angel was gonna do a U-turn and end up darker than Angelus himself – and to me, Aus is also morphing – but into a fluffy puppy kinda guy – so they are both being seriously affected by the splitting.

The way you are cataloguing the changes is gripping and amazing – scary with Angel, and wow with Aus.

The first time i read this I too thought Cordy was being too responsive – until, as i said, I realised her quandary…and what a place to be! So now I’m more in the camp of ‘poor, confused Cordy’ not being able to control her conflicting feelings [can you imagine having double helpings of basically the same guy?]

The degeneration of Angel’s mind is wonderfully done, Lysa [as you know, Beige Angel was my most favourite manpire! *sigh*], and I can’t wait to see how far you take this – Brilliant!

Controversial and gut-wrenching!


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Love this and can’t wait for more my bet is that both angel and angelus aren’t going to like cordy leaving
from Kimmers


IZZYCHASE:

I don’t think I’m such a huge fan of Angel right now, with the *almost rape* of Cordy… so I’m gonna have to say:

GO Angelus! I feel doubly sorry (no pun intended) for the poor vamp, who’s been nothing but wonderful to Cordy and is now getting screwed by his twin.

I half feel sorry for Cordy, it must be really confusing, but I also want to slap her for going behind Angelus’ back and not staying at the mansion.

*agrees with Athlantis* I want a C/Aus make-up scene too. Those always end up steamy.

Other than that, nice degeneration of Beige!Angel, Lysa. It was so creepy but also believable.


SCOOBYSNAX:

i never thought i would say this (well, after his s2 antics) ANGEL NEEDS HIS ASS KICKED!! and poor angelus, i feel so bad for him. i think i should go and pick up the pieces of his broken heart. ::cackles evilly::


TIPDIP:
PART 31

Oh I read this at ST and just absolutely loved it!

Very nice job, Lysa!

Please post soon!

Cammy


CHRISTY:

I also read this over at ST. Lovely writing Lysa And suddenly I’m feeling like I’ve already given you f/b for this part over here at AO?? Maybe it got lost with the crash thingy??

Anyway………….

MORE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


KATRINA:

Oh no, I was sure I left feedback for this and now it’s gone, so maybe I didn’t and I have really finally gone insane, oh well it was bound to happen.

I love this story so much and the way you capture the characters is so perfectly spot on. I really enjoyed your Giles, and how he hoped that his interruption would merely be a neighbour, yeah right as if something that mundane would happen on the hellmouth, there’s always something coming.

I like the way you have drawn out the way that Angel and Angelus have changed. It’s been so gradual and real.

I love it all, and hope that Angelus and Cordy get to do some ‘making up’ in the next part.


NOBODY’S ANGEL:

Ahh, dontcha just love technology…when it works??

I already f/b’d this, but since it got dingoed, I’ll do it again:

Great chapter Lysa! Loved every damn bit of it.

And the first f/b was much better…


LYSA:

Thanks for the Repeat Feedback. Looks like our little computer hitch ate the FB for DoN.

I feel like someone gave me a big box of chocolates which I’d been nibbling at and enjoying and now someone’s snatched them away.

QUOTE

Katrina: Looks like your hopes could be answered.


SUNSCORCHED:

Starting my feed back I am…

QUOTE
Talking to his only child about the realities of Sunnydale after sunset was out of the question. It hadn’t even occurred to him that Cordelia was at an age where that might present a danger to her.

The way you’ve made Cordy’s parents a part of the plot I like, eased them in so easily and made them fit right in you have. Her father wouldn’t realise she’s grown up enough to go out at night likely this seems.

QUOTE
Considering some of those vampire tales, Daniel found himself thinking, Suddenly, the leather corset is making sense.

Poor Daniel, a right old time of it he’s having it is! Facing jail, bankrupcy, a grown up daughter who’s boyfriend is a creature with sharp fangs and an attitude but he’s also found out his little girl ain’t so little anymore!!!

Almost feel sorry for the guy I do!

QUOTE
Angelus D’Aurelius

Love that so much!

QUOTE
“Apparently, I didn’t knock enough sense into him last night. He’s
running on instincts, Cordelia. Right now, I’m afraid they’re all trained on you.”

Angelus should know after all, the same instincts he has. Another vamp smack down we might see? Cos honey the thought of TwinAngels mud wrestling leaves a quivering mass of flesh in I am!

QUOTE
“I’ll pretend to be completely uninterested in your stuff, but nose around anyway,” he told her.

This image of Cordy coming out of the shower just in time to see Angelus making a catapult out of a bra I have! A scary place is my mind!!! Imagine he would peek through her diary I can, wonder what he’d find written about him I do…!!

QUOTE
“Just make sure you don’t touch my diary if you find it. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything in there, but trust me when I say that major staking will occur. Got it?”

Him reading her diary happen it won’t *sighs then brightens* read his diary she should!!!

QUOTE
Angel figured that it had to do with his encounter with Cordelia. Responding smoothly, “That’s right.”

Such a vampire he is! Li-ar Li-ar! Leather pants on fi-re, hair sticks up like over-gelled wi-re.

QUOTE
“You always were a know-it-all, bro. Yapping in my head. Telling me what to do and generally pissing me off.”

Getting down to the nitty gritty we are. Love how it’s Angel who’s now using the sarcastic ‘Bro’ term and love how he’s pointing out Angelus yapped in his head, pissing him off. A change from the demon yammering on about the soul it makes.

Nice turn around for the vamps it is, very nicely done work you did.

QUOTE
“Drop the Miss Manners routine, Rup,”

Nicely done this is. Bringing Angel’s sarcasm out well and truly you are, tell you how much I love him calling Giles ‘Rup’ I can’t! Half expecting him to finish it by adding Bear I was!

Quit with the quoting I shall because here all day I will be!!

Excellent part it is, the switch in behaviour between both vamps showed clearly and very effectively it does. Scary is Angel, bordering on psychotic while Angelus, the original Bad Boy, plays Care Bear he does! Love the switch so much I do, working for me and many others it is!

Without smut long time it’s been. Damn Ly, really bad that is and have my hopes up for a steamy return of The Smut in the next part you do! Questions I have and answer you must…

Back the mansion, things will happen shall they?
Into the bedroom Angel might go?
Clear Cordy’s unneeded guilt, will Angelus?
Spank her again he might?!
Fighting will break out will it?
Threesome romp be there might?!

Hold out on us you can’t, next post up soon it will and leave us hanging you won’t. Threats shall happen they will and stalked you will be. Done well you have and medal you need!


GILLY:

Hi Lysa

I think I already left FB, but here goes again. This is hotting up nicely, but I can see it all ending in tears. I hope not. Waaaa

First off, Scorchy: Even your FB is hilarious. You are such a riot gurl!
Or maybe I should start calling you Yoda since talking like this you seem to be. Did you watch a Star Wars marathon while AO was down?

Let’s see…*clears throat*

Answering your questions now I will try…

Back the mansion, things will happen shall they?
In the mansion lots you will see

Into the bedroom Angel might go?
Into the bedroom Angel *might* go, necessarily Cordelia & Angelus in there not. Own bedroom does Angel have.

Clear Cordy’s unneeded guilt, will Angelus?
Cleansing guilt Angelus will try. Methods delectible, delicious and smutty are these.

Spank her again he might?!
Disappointment subdue, for spankings be not unless tables turning there are. Likely 32 realistically shows not.

Fighting will break out will it?
Possibilities this notion confirm must I. For darkness rising prepare must you.

Threesome romp be there might?!
Blurry the future is. Patient must you be. With Fear do love, loyalty and desire war. Caught Cordelia is. In the middle trapped. Ahead does turmoil await. Answers easy not in finding. For help in the asking must there be.

Now 32 the plot know you. Details read you must. Stalking Lysa not will you do.


KATRINA:

Ok Scorchy and Lysa you guys have me in stitches.

QUOTE
Katrina: Looks like your hopes could be answered.

Lysa you’ve made my day woo hoo. Or should I say: my day you’ve made?

AND:

You guys are totally barmy. Another great chapter Lysa. I can’t wait to see what happens next so I’m off to read more.


ZANITA:

DoN has been top of my reading list since chapter one and I’m finally catching up!

I think I’ve gone through 10 chapters in one sitting

I don’t know where you’ve left it but I know I will be highly disapointed to come to the last one and not be able to have more!

This is one of the most wonderfully frustrating stories ever, I love it!

Zan


HELEN:

PART 31

Lysa

As brilliant as ever and still as mindblowing even with the all the explanations it just makes it more and more addictive. I still have no idea how your gonna resolve this and its killing me

I love your explanations of the changes in behavior and how it is Cordy that is keeping Angelus balanced.

Stunning fic, Hun

Keep writing this FAST!!

Helen


DAMNSKIPPY:

Just as I a suspected. They’re switching roles and what’s going to happen with the evil!Angel/us in charge? Can Cordy’s love balance him like it balanced Angelus? Will she have to give up Angelus to save them both? Can she find the Fates and give them a piece of her mind? I’m dying here.

Great chapter and post the next one very soon!!


CORDELIA’S DESTINY:

Yeah!!! Answers, answers, and more answers! Although, the only problem is that they brought up more questions! Grr! I can’t wait to see how you fix all of this. Angel’s so deliciously dark now, but its kinda scary. I hope you can fix him, cuz I don’t want to lose our Angel forever! As sexy as Angelus is, I’m kinda partial to Soulboy. Keep writing. faster faster faster!!

I hadnt started reading this story until a few days ago and now I am hooked. I am definitely loving this story and hope you post more really really soon. I cant wait to see what Angel will do next and how Angelus and Cordelia will react.
ANGELS CORDY:

Lyyyyyssssssssssaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
Write, write, write!! Hurry up with the next chapter…

I’m soooooo courious!! Love the story so far, and I’m dying to find out, how’s this all is going to end…and if Cordy is able to fix this…

I really, really love Angel the way he is right now…sooooo sexy…


KIMMERS:

Loved this and can’t wait for more this is getting better and better
from Kiimmers


FRAZI:

Oh my god!!! The transition….and the whole idea of the 180 degree reversal. I’m amazed!!! Girl you’ve spun this story in ways I wish I could! heheh. That was the envy talkin there. Anywayz you better post more soon I can’t wait to see how Angel/Angelus will solve this one. Beautiful work!!!


CALIFI:

Love where this is going now – and Angel: mmmmm, hot with a bad boy edge, yum!

Wonder what will happen at the Mansion – will Angel be able to keep his hands to himself?
The explanation was very interesting – and intriging, and can’t wait to see what they have to do to stop this from happening.

Anglus foxed when he realised Angel was right about his lack of ‘removing’ the touch of another – he’s getting worried about his onw ‘change’ now!

Have to say again that I jst love this ‘novel’ – I say that, cos it is wholesomely long and detailed, yet still not enough!

Encore!

Cali


LUCKYLYN:

I can’t wait to see how this all plays out. How will you resolve this? This is amazing.


IZZYCHASE:

Wow!~ Another chapter.

Good job, Lysa! Thanks for the explanation (yeah, Giles!!) and Angel is so dark it’s starting to creep me out… I can almost imagine *him* torturing Giles.

Angelus is the head of the Order! That’s awesome, so now Angel can’t say he has the ‘legitimate’ claim.

Will Cordelia give up Angelus to save them both? Will Giles find a solution? Will Angel slip further into the darkness? Will Buffy recover from their breakup and go out with Xander (that would be an interesting arc, if I didn’t love the idea of C/Aus so much)? Will Angelus beat the crap out of Angel for messing with his mate?

Write soon, gurl!!


SCOOBYSNAX:

God. Damn. Don’t stop writing. EVER. Angel is being so evil, Angelus is being so…yummy. It’s like they’ve completely switched roles! Sheesh, I don’t even know WHAT to think anymore, and I’m just reading!


ATHLANTIS:

OMG, who is she gonna pick (crossing fingers and prying out load)please let it nbe Angelus, please let it be Angelus!!!!!

If Angel is so loose, maybe Sunnyhell only needs one vamp, Angel needs to back off! ANGELUS RULES!!!!


KATRINA:

Wonderful part Lysa

You had me laughing out loud with the reference to Giles’ minions, they are so inept as minions its funny. Although to give the dork patrol their due they did rescue Cordy.

Loved the way you’ve written the slowly emerging role reversal, your attention to detail has been perfect.

I can’t wait to find out what is happening back at the mansion, I’m all over intrigued. Great job hun, can’t wait for more.


SI_CRAZY:

Sorry it took so long for me to reply to this chapter, Lysa!! But here I am, and let me say something, this fic rocks!!!! I love it. Hope you post more soon.


NOBODY’S ANGEL:

Great part as always Lysa! I swear this fic gets better and better with each part!!!

I’d write better feedback, but I just woke up and the words fail me at the moment! But it was awesome!!!

More soon please!


HELEN:

Lysa

Wow you’ve gone and done it again haven’t you , superb parts filled with excitement tension and intrigue. I loved everyone as always but the standaing ovation goes to Willow and Giles methinks- why do I wanna cheer on Willow could it be cos I’m so hopeful she’d gonna save the day????

As ever more question than answer tho – you meanie you.

Loved every line (thats becoming a standard one but still damn tru) please post more soon

Luv, Helen


DAMNSKIPPY:

I left FB on ST, but just wanted to say it here also. I love the intrigue going on. What the hell is Angel up to? Is Buffy going to do smack down on the Fates once she finds out? Who’s going to fix this whole mess? I just gotta know soon!!!


NAIRI:

Another amazing chapter Lysa, i loved it. Can´t wait to find out what Angel is planning, please post again soon.
Nairi


CALIFI:

I can’t wait to find out what Angel has up his sleeve – at the moment I trust him as far as I can kiss him – both an impossibility *sniffle*

I’m also wondering what this talisman has to do with anything – unless its a red herring? And of course, Buffy’s reaction to what Giles divulges…..so many questions as usual, and looking forward to getting some answers.

Brilliant!

Cali


GILLY:

This is a gripping fic, Lysa you keep us guessing after ever chapter.

Can’t wait for A/A/C if there’s going to be any.?

Knowing Cordy she’ll keep on at Willow until W breaks. Hee hee


SUNSCORCHED:

Okay, here I go with the quoting…

Though the smut was wonderfully hot as always, it was this sweet little interlude that got me.

QUOTE
Their foreheads touched as Angelus told her, “Baby, you’re so beautiful.”

A simple touch can be so intimate can’t it? A line like this is just what I need to cheer me up after today’s Grand Prix.

QUOTE
“Don’t be sorry for it,” Angelus realized the reason for those salty tears. “We have so much, Cordelia. For as long as we can hold onto it.”

Aww, I so want him to be able to bite her! I want everything to be okay and I want them to be happy forever!

I loved how Cordy took the initiative and seduced Angelus in his ‘sleep’ even if he was faking it! Looks like he ain’t the only ‘bad’ one in the relationship!!

QUOTE
“It’s afternoon, sweetheart,” he pointed out. Angels’ mouth twisted in wry humor as he raised a dark eyebrow. “Your little morning romp has confused your timetable.”

Isn’t he the crude one all of a sudden? I very much doubt Angel is going to let the ownership of the Order or Cordy go without a fight and as Cal said, I trust him as far as I can throw him. I just wanna know what he’s got up his sleeve.

QUOTE
Buffy stopped cold turning to face him. “Why is it all the men in my life can’t seem to get Cordelia Chase out of their minds? Angel. You. I even caught Giles muttering her name the other day.”

I loved this bit, normally we see Cordy harping on about why everyone revolves around Buffy so this was a great little change here!

Both parts were excellent, though I haven’t stated as much as I want too but I’m currantly in a world of sadness due to Kimi’s loss today!!

Great smut, great interractions and great lines here, nothing short of your usual brilliance babe. I love you and keep it coming!!!

What’s Angel planning?
Does the talisman Buffy mentioned mean anything?
Will Willow be able to contact the Moirae?
Will there be another vampy smackdown?
Are we gonna get a yummy threesome?!!
Have I told you that you’re beautiful and that I love you?!!


KIMMERS:

Love this lysa can’t wait to see what happens next this is good
from Kimmers


KATRINA:

Oh Lysa, this was such a lovely surprise to log on and find this here. I went to make a cup of coffee, assign my assistant a busy task and sat back and enjoyed myself, what luxury.

I loved it. The emotion that Angelus and Cordy exhibited when first returning to the mansion was perfect. And I love how Cordy decides to take research matters into her own hands (or more accurately Willow’s).

And Angel being all sneaky and plotty-y, can’t wait to find out what nefarious scheme he is cooking up.

I am way looking forward to more of your brilliance soon.

Hugs

Kat


IMPRESS:

wonderful. utterly wonderful. so much going on. so many questions to be answered. can’t wait to see what happens next.


ANDREA:

More great chapters Lysa. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Please post more soon


DAMNSKIPPY:

Yay, Lysa! More great chapters with Aus/Cordy hot smut, Cordy bossing Angel around, great X/B moments on patrol, and Willow and Giles researching with Oz growling in the background. You really surprised me with Angel admitting Aus is head of the order and giving him the ring. And this moment, even if it was a manipulation, made my heart flutter.

quote:
The poker face was firmly in place as Angel replied, “This isn’t easy for me, Cordy. You have no idea what I feel wanting you, loving you, being the one who can’t have you, can’t touch you.”

Tears filled her eyes as Cordelia saw the love shining through the otherwise passive features. No matter that the effects of the Moirae deal had his demon instincts going wild Cordelia realized that his feelings for her were genuine. No matter what she wanted, their relationship was never going to fit back into that safe, easy friendship they had developed.

I can’t wait to find out how you’re going to fix this, because I’m flummoxed.


SCOOBYSNAX:

Lysa, you RULE!!!!


LUCKYLYN:

I look forward to seeing how you resolve things. Post more soon.


ELIZABETH:

I’m completely overwhelmed by this story and can’t wait for the next installment. I hope to see another post again soon.


KATRINA:

Lysa this is just brilliant, it keeps getting better and better and the twists keep on coming.

I can’t wait to find out more about the demon Buffy killed, what was it doing? Why was it wearing a talisman? What can it all mean?

quote:
He knew the vampire traditions and the rules that Angel probably thought he could bend to get away with what he was plotting

And Angel is up to something, that sneaky vamp. What is it that he is plotting.

I loved the desperation of Cordy and Angelus when they returned to the mansion, it conveyed their feelings so well.

Great job as usual Lysa,

Hugs

Kat


IMPRESS:

ok, Angel with the sneaky…Willow with the research…Cordy with the determination to save her mate…and the C/Aus/A that I’m still waiting on.

Damn chica, you wait to long between updates, but it’s well worth it. More soon.


SI_CRAZY

Great chapters!!! I am so loving this fic, Lysa!!! You’re doing a great job!!! Hope you post more soon.


SUNSCORCHED:

PART 35

First off, lemme just say how incredibly glad I am that I’m not the only one posting today!!!

Heehee!!

Loved the way Cordy was the balancing force for Angel, a sweet build up for some exceptionally yummy things to, uh, come!

I noticed how Buffy was fairly worried about the brunette there for a minute, bless her wooden stakes for being a caring little thing! It’s refreshing to read a nice Buffy after writing JealousBuffy for the last day and a half, so thanks for that little interlude.

Nice catch in making Angelus the stuttering dork and another nice catch for having Angel say he was the balless one now. Talk about your sibling rivalry, these two take it to extremes don’t they? Making comments about the lack of balls the other has, next thing you know they’ll be using one another as a mirror to see how good they look!!!

Poor Cordy, hurting herself with her own sword I’m not surprised she didn’t want to admit that to Angelus though I doubt he would have laughed at her. He’s too soft to do that now! The fight between Angel and Buffy was good, your action scenes were clear and concise, that can be hard to do when writing action.

Most of the action scenes I’ve read, the writer has tried to capture the furious ferocity of the fight by using a ton of words but that just makes it harder to follow. Yours was easy to see and I could picture it clearly.

You had Giles’ nervousness about the alone time down, the tugging of his collar, the stuttering all of that brought back fond memories of both Giles and BTVS S3 Wes.

All in all, a scrumptious little part that has refreshed my brain with a nice ickle rest after a day’s writing that has been none-stop! Can not wait at all for the next part, I’m dying to see how all involved react to finding out about Angel/Cordy’s alone time cure!


KATRINA:

Lysa, I so love you, another part up makes me all jumpy for joy.

QUOTE
“You coulda left me one or two of the scrawny ones,” Xander complained that Angel had barely let him into the fight. “Hogging all of the demons.”

Even though he’s not in it much your Xander is totally perfect, this made me just laugh out loud.

I’d quote even more but it would be almost re-posting, so I’ll refrain.

I loved how out of control Angel was when he thought Buffy had hurt Cordy (and how funny was it when she hurt herself, that is so something I would do )

Hmm and Giles suggestion, mmm I knew Angel was up to something, he totally suspected this would happen. I’m feeling all over sorry for Angelus.

And Willow was so in character too, not listening to Giles and getting into research she shouldn’t, good for her. Can’t wait to read more, not that I’m impatient or anything, ok I am, but I can’t help it, it’s your fault for being so brilliant.

Hugs

Kat.


MANDERS-21

The whole secrecy thing w/ Angel and Angelus over the moraie has me intrigued, whats the prophesy entail? Aaahhh, Im not even gunna begin to guess! Now we’re getting to the Cordy sharing part that we all were waiting for – you just can’t have Angel and Angleus around at the same time and not utilise them both at once This leaves the question of whether Angelus is gunna leave her alone w/ him, I think not! That either means has to sit on the sidelines and watch, but alas no participation, or we get the scene we’ve all been wanting from the beginning. Two delectable vamps, one Cordy, and one bed, gives you good times! What can I say other than I know Im not the only one! Phenomenol, keep it coming

Amanda


IMPRESS:

fab hun. really. I agree with Scorchy, your fight scene was easy to picture. Ohh and I liked Buffy being all concerned then jealous of Xander mentioning Cordy. More. More. More.


CALIFI:

Wow! What a lovely treat this morning!

Lysa, this is going swimmingly everyone’s behaviour was perfect, and Angel is really going to town, isnt he? He might be losing control, but his mind is only getting sharper and more devious. Angelus is right to be worried – and his concern that Angel will want more than alone time is justified.

This will be very interesting – to see what Angel is up to next, and the results of G/W summoning the Moiree…can’t wait for the rest

Cali


HELEN:

Lysa

I think I love you (in a good way). This is as superb as ever and I’m afraid I’m going on a quote fest:

QUOTE
“You have nerve saying that,” Angelus returned. “It wasn’t that long ago that you were the Slayer’s lapdog.”

“Emphasis on the past tense.” With a quip, Angel added, “My balls are back. Think you can find yours?”

Angelus was about to let loose with his fist when Cordelia’s disgusted voice caused him to hold back.

“Eew! Men are so gross,” Cordelia whacked Angel in the chest. “What’s next? More vampire wrestling? Enough of the insults and the distraction mode. No changing the subject. Unless you plan to keep me tied up, I’m coming with you on patrols.”

Angel sent her a slow grin, letting his gaze travel over her slim form noticing the way that beneath her open jacket, her form-fitting top and pants hugged every curve. He imagined stripping her of those clothes, binding her wrists with those silk scarves and leaving her naked and tied to his bed until his return. “That could be arranged.”

Oh purlease that has so got to be arranged, I’ll beg and plead and do whatever you want As for Angel having his balls back LMAO!!! Inspired piece of dialogue and I’ve said it before but damn your Cordy is one lucky girl!

QUOTE
Rolling her eyes, Cordelia figured he was picturing her back the mansion designing her little outfits in the safety of her own living room. “I’m not the stay home and knit type, Angel. I’d prefer being tied up.”

“Really?” There was a touch of eager boyishness in his tone.

“Yes, actually,” Cordelia answered before realizing that her usual lack of tact would only spur on Angel’s sexually-charged notions.

Yup I’m a sick pupyy what is about being tied up oh yeah I remember now


KIMMERS:

ysa once again a great fic and can’t wait for more
from Kimmers


DAMNSKIPPY:

Loved this chapter. I’ll just repeat what others have said. Cordy injuring herself was hilarious, Buffy’s concern was perfect, Angel going apeshit was scary, Angel licking her forehead was sweet and hot (especially with Angelus watching), and I can’t wait to see how C/A/Aus are going to handle Giles’ suggestion.

And I really want to know what the Fates said and this prophecy. You really know how to weave that intrigue.

More soon I hope!!!


NOBODY’S ANGEL:

Great chapter as always Lysa! This is one of those fics that when I see a new part posted, I get all happy and can’t wait to get a soda and some popcorn or something else equally snacky and sit down to read it!! You’ve done a great job keeping us all hooked for so many parts, and it just keeps getting better!!!

Waiting impatiently for the next part!!


HESPERUS:

You sneaked that one in, didn’t you! Wasn’t expecting a new chapter just yet. I keep hearing Faith, “share, share that’s fair right?” Great chapter.


ZANITA:

I knew it! I knew when I got here I was going to go through withdrawl!

With my time for not being able to read any fic’s though, you’ll probably have the thing finished next time I get a chance to read!

You are so talented, I can’t wait to see how this turns out.
Zan


SI_CRAZY:

Amazing chapter Lysa!!!! You’re doing a great job with thi fic. I am looking forward to read more


AND:

I love this story Lysa. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Angel’s a sneaky git, he’s got something planned lol. Please post more soon. Great job.


GILLY:

Wow, Lysa another great chapter, you sneaked this in without me noticing, it just gets better and better, with more intrigue and suspense as it progresses.

Dying to find out how you’re going to resolve the A/Aus/C situation.

I’ll keep my eyes better pealed for the next part.


CHRISTY:

I’m late Lysa, I’m sorry hon I like your new avie by the way

It was nice to see Buffy worried about Cordy, even if it was brief.

And the best part was when Angel was calmed by Cordy, and all she did was get hurt and let him lick her


AMBROSIA:

Once again another great chapter. I’m intrigued by the prophecy and promise to the Fates thing.


ATHLANTIS:

Angelus sharing his mate???!!!HELL NO!!!! This is wrong, Angel should just die!!!!!
I’m loving so much your fic, I never thought I could actually hate Angel more than I already do because of “the kiss” with Buffy. But now, I’m totally sure I’ve passed that point, I HATE ANGEL’S GUTS!!!! Go ANGELUS!!!! HE ROCKS!!!

MOREMOREMOREMOREMOREPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEMOREMOREMORE


KATRINA:

Another fantastic part Lysa, don’t know how you maintain such a wonderfully high standard.

Loved your fight scene, and feral Angel was scary. I really thought there for a moment that Buffy might stake him, which made me more worried about Angelus than it did about Angel, something freaky there, but in a good way.

quote:
The witch had no idea what changed Giles’ mind so quickly, but she was happy that her confession would not be frowned upon. Holding up the talisman, she grinned at him. “Already on it.”

I just love Willow. So there for all her friends in need, minion for Giles and Angelus and coming through on the research for Cordy.

Great job hun, looking forward to more.


IMPRESS:

great chap hun. but that’s not surprising. the whole feral Angel scene was well done. I’m looking forward to the conversation between the three. More now…er..soon.


LIZZY:

We are moving right along! I can’t wait to see how things turn out. You are doing such a fantastic job, Lysa. Thank you!


HELEN:

Hiya Lysa

Absolutely wonderful writing HUN as ever I’m in awe at your plotting, characterisations, dialogue imagery and well damn just about eveything.

Shushhhh jus popping in, more FB at AO

Smooches, Helen


FRAZI:

Excitedly anticipating. Heh. You’ve got my attention and you’ve held it for a while. More soon? Coz this is like breathing air now 😛 PWeeze?


DANNYBLUE:

I think this is turning into a classic. It’s an excellent story, full of twists and turns, and the characters are great, the action is great…It’s all good.

When I first started reading, I would’ve said, “Of course Cordy should be with Angel instead of Angelus. Hello!” Now, I’m all torn, in a good way!

I’m really looking forward to the next part.


LUCKYLYN:

You’ve gotta love Willow. I’m all torn up about which Vamp I should be rooting for. I love how you’ve managed to stay true to the characters. Lysa, you put together something truly fantastic.


SCOOBYSNAX:

lysa, amazing as usual. i wanna know this prophecy, promise-ness. hehe, but if i was in cordy’s shoes, i would spend some “alone” time with angel. then maybe angelus could join in. sandwich anyone? ::wink, wink::


IZZYCHASE:

Great chapter, Lysa!

Angel was creepy during the fight w/ the demons- I really thought Buffy would stake him.

I too, was worried about Angelus. 😛 I also love the way you stayed true to the characters (poor Giles must be blushing! ) and Willow was awesome.

Hmm, I’ve sort of rooted for Angelus all along, and I still think I will continue to root for him. Sorry, Angel fans.

Iz.


ELIZABETH:

Wow Lysa! That was just fabulous! I loved it when Cordy brough Angel out of his ‘psycho’ state and even more when Giles suggested that they ‘share’ her. This has got me on the edge of my seat. Post more soon please!


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapter, Lysa!!!!! This is just getting better and better. I’m loving this fic. And hope that you post more soon.


SUNSCORCHED:

PART 36

LOL

God Angel is a sneaky SOB iddn he? He wasn’t always a dumbass dork and he had the art of manipulation down.

I loved Cordy getting Angel to help her with her homework, I could so see that happening. The video store section was sad and I really felt for Angel, poor guy all he wants is some Cordy lovin and instead he finds out his brother did a runner with his car and owns the girl he loves.

That has to be a killer!!!

Heh, I would have loved to have seen Cordy call Angelus muffin, you can imagine his reaction couldn’t you?!

Soz I can’t leave more FB, I have a cold and generally feel miserable right now. Anyhoo, loved this part and would like the next part as soon as you can manage!!!


HELEN:

Hiya Lysa

I’m not here OK (shuch) like scorch’s I did a sly one so sorry to be brief. LOVED IT (loud voice) you are such a star!.

Here’s some faves:

QUOTE
Angel added silently, Maybe I hurried it along a little once I figured out what he was thinking. Gave an Oscar-worthy performance or two tonight. But it was entirely his idea.

Wow what a sly vampire huh- don’t ya just love him more for it tho

QUOTE
“What did you expect? Candlelight and mood music?” Cordelia gave him a hard stare as she handed him the Elmer’s Glue. “Go ahead, Michelangelo. Make my day.”

LMAO!! that is so Cordy

QUOTE
Trying not to react to the sensual thrumming that made its way from their threaded fingers all the way down to the core of her sex, Cordelia met his searing gaze. Just a touch, just the sound of his voice or a look from those deep, piercing eyes was all it took to arouse her. Forget everything he’d told her that night? Not likely. No matter how much she wished she could.

Totally hot I love your use of language I might have to beg to steal ‘thrumming’ – Go Lysa!

QUOTE
Dammit, he’d accused Angelus of being pussy-whipped, but he didn’t even have the excuse of getting any. What the hell was it about Cordelia Chase that gave her the power to wrap him around her little finger? Holding out the keys, Angel watched as excitement took over her whole body.

Sigh – so sweet and loving. Its great how you can switch their moods and emotions not to mention smoothly.

I love this fic so much (my mantra) for every reply huh?

As for the end OMG are we gettign that close (sob) and YAY at the same time, I’m on tenderhooks

Luv, Helen


BECJANE:

Loved Cordy making Angel help her with her homework & the conversation about the ‘cars’!!

Like that Angel is acting more ‘Angel-like’ again even if he doesn’t want to – that’s Cordy’s influence for ya! I don’t know who I want Cordy to end up with now though. You’ve made me root for Angelus *and* Angel.

Post more soon, Lysa

Becky


TIPDIP:

Wonderful chapter! Post more soon! —-Cammy


FANG GIRL:

What a wonderful Bday pressie…. A new chapter!!!

Okay here is me pleading to get a new chapter up soon….please…pretty pweeese with nekkid Angel on top.


ZANITA:

I loved all the mistaken meanings in the conversations, they were so funny!

And wow, the next part is gonna be a doozy. We got mucho info coming up, don’t we?

Can’t wait you briliant story teller you!


DAMNSKIPPY:

I was so sad that Angelus and Cordy knew they had to give in. But I loved the way she took control of the their time together. And her influence is already showing. The way Angel controlled himself in the video store even after she said she loved him could only have happened because of her affect on him.

I’m so excited for the next chapter!!


GILLY:

Ooooooo another super part Lysa, I love the way Buffy still can’t tell them apart and the motor conversation, as for Aus eavesdropping the homework talk serves him right- nosey eh

Interesting to see what Willow and Giles have worked out with a spell or summut, sounds like a receipe for disaster

More please, when you’re ready.


AND:

Another great Chapter Lysa. Angel really is sneaky. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Please post more soon


KATRINA:

*sigh* That was wonderful as usual Lysa. A real rollercoaster this time.

This part had everything, laughter, tears and heartache.

QUOTE
“No promises you can’t keep,” she entreated as her hand dropped to his chest, “and no kisses. I’m still in love with Angelus. He’s my mate and we belong to each other. Nothing has changed that.”

You’ve shown so much growth in Cordy and her maturity and strength is so well portrayed. You are doing just the best job ever, I think I love you, in a good not freaky way.

QUOTE
“Your fragile psyche should take a few lessons from your ego. There’s nothing fragile about that,” Cordelia pounced on the question.

“Can’t help it if you think I’m hot,” Angel smirked. “You’ll just have to learn to control yourself.”

I love scheming Angel, playing the game to win, he’s all sexy and naughty. But then I feel sorry for Angelus and I’m all torn, well not so much torn as wanting to sooth and love them both

Can’t wait for more.

Hugs

Kat.


LIZ S:

Lysa,

This has been an amazing story, and you’ve kept me on the edge of my seat with wondering what will happen nex! Can’t wait to see what the Fates have in store for Angel and Angelus, and what happens with Cordy, although in my head I’m sure you’re going to do it the way my imagination says (which is working overtime!) Looking forward to the next part!


IMPRESS:

Lysa, this chapter, hell this whole fic is just wonderful. You keep me eagarly awaiting more. Post again soon.


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapter!!! I’m really loving this fic, Lysa. Hope you post the next part ASAP.


NAIRI:

OMG Lysa!
I just read the last two chapters and they were amazing as always. You rock. Loved the conversation between C/A in the car. Loved the way she got him to do her homework. This fic has it all, it´s funny, hot and lots of angst. Just the way i like it. Can´t wait to find out what will happen next now that they are finaly going to contact the moirae, and now that Angel knows how Cordy really feels about him. Please post again soon.
Nairi


CHRISTY:

I’m late with f/b on this one too. I saved them and read them offline.

All I have to say is……..You didn’t just leave it there!!

Oh! And the movie rental scene was funny, cute, and hot!

More Lysa!!!!


SUNSCORCHED:

PART 36

Oh yes… Oh yes yes yes!

Lysa you are doing wonders with the challenge. Hot, extremely funny and just plainly great! I gotta say though, you may have been a little too evil to leave this part where you did and another part is expected soonish!!

I went back and read this from the beginning the other day, the changes between Angel and Angelus happened so slowly, I barely noticed until all the action started. The changes in Angelus have gradual and subtle… sutble? While the changes in Angel have been more severe and noticeable, which you could also put down to the changes.

Great how you’ve worked it like that and you must continue.
No Yoda-Speak see?! I was able to refrain from infecting ST with my insanity!!


LUCKYLYN:

I can’t wait to see what happens next. Post more soon.


LIZZY:

Wow. I loved Cordy’s confession scene. And that ending… you’ve got me hanging on by a thread. How long must I wait for the new part? Great job, Lysa!


IZZYCHASE:

The climax has come!

Arrgh- you just had to end it there, didn’t you, girl? 😛

Nice chapter, but please, please, please write more soon!

Iz.


ELIZABETH:

On the EDGE of my seat here. Needing more desperately. Cordy was breaking my heart in the video store scene. So was Angel. Post again soon! You rocketh muchly!


SI_CRAZY:

Great chapter Lysa!!! I’m really looking forward to read more. So please, post again soon.


AMBROSIA:

I can sense that were on the downhill run. Can’t wait to see what happens next!


SCOOBYSNAX:

Damn, no samich action. Oooh, can’t wait till the next update.


KATRINA:

quote:
Groaning, Cordelia pushed at the vampire’s shoulder. “Angel, stop.”

“You’ve got to like that,” Angel saw nothing to complain about. “C’mon Cordy. I know you do. Just look at it.”

“It’s too big. Just stop trying to put it where it doesn’t belong,” Cordelia complained.

He actually growled, “I think I can figure out where to put it.”

This was really too funny Lysa, and I can just picture poor Angelus eavesdropping on this and going slowly insane until the truth became apparent.

I am loving this soooo very very much. I am now totally in love with Angel when he was all so concerned over Cordy in the video shop and with my already giant love for Angelus I’m all over conflicted so can only imagine what poor Cordy is going through.

Great job, every single bit is brilliant.

hugs

Kat.


DANNYBLUE:

Still headed for my “Classic C/A Fics” list. This story has so much depth to it. The way you slowly, subtley developed the changes in Angel and Angelus were so well done, so seemless…It’s just fantastic!

Thanks for the great fic. I’m looking forward to the next part.


FRAZI:

Oh you are evil. This is just delicious. I haven’t had a lota time on my hands, but I just couldn’t keep myself and chkin if the next part to this thing was up and i think its safe to say i am pleasantly surprised 😛 hehe. Okay I”m totally excited about what you’re going to do next! More soon? Pweeeeze?


KATRINA:

PART 37

Oh my god. Lysa you are a genius. I loved every single word, particularly:

QUOTE
Miss I’m-Creating-A-Champion. This only happened a few months ago, so why does she look like she’s having a baby elephant?”

Sorry to be so juvenile but this just tickled my funny bone.

I really am in awe hon, writing such great background historical detail and keeping it interesting is so hard to do and you’ve just done it so well.

I was reading and I could see this playing out, I could hear Giles talk, I could see their mannerisms, it’s all just so brilliant.

And what a cliffhanger:

QUOTE
“Destiny’s path remains unchanged as we have described it. Come the dawn the balance shall be restored and only the vampire who is our champion shall remain.”

Great (read evil) place to leave it, as long as you don’t leave it too long.
I need to get one of those Scorchy type vocabs happening just so I can list enough superlatives to tell you how much I loved this part. Fabulous, fantastic, super, terrific, wonderful, excellent, great, amazing, astounding, remarkable…..


KIMMERS:

loving this lysa worth the wait and waitinfg for more
from Kimmers


CALIFI:

Aren’t you proud of yourself, Lysa?

You finally got to that place you wanted, and it turned out perfect! Knew you could do it

Now finally we get to the crunch *sniffle* – and I sooo cannot wait to see how you do this -Can I say wow?

You deserve a gold medal for all the work you’ve done on this fic, and we all love you for it.

Trust Angel to take advantage of the dark, hehe!

Poor Cordy; i bet she’s having palpitations over that last comment!

Wonderful, Lysa; please don’t leave us waiting too long for more!

Cali x


NAIRI:

Lysa that was amazing, it kept me on the edge of my chair while the mystery unfolded itself. You did a great job. I can´t wait to read the next part, to see what will happen to A/ AU and poor Cordy. Please post again soon.
Nairi


SUNSCORCHED:

I’m stunned beyond belief at the amount of work you have put into this fic. This part has left me without the power of speech and I am bowing down at your feet.

Your Xander in this was fantastic, this bit captured him so perfectly and the Xander love is big and bouncy right now!

QUOTE
“It always comes back to the curse,” Xander pointed out as he sat down on the ground.
Lakhesis looked at him with disdain. “That is hardly showing respect for superiors. Be seated properly if you must.”
Xander suddenly found himself in a large leather recliner with his feet propped up. Giles was next to him in what looked like the chair from his living room. In a similar chair, Oz and Willow were sitting together with the witch on his lap. Buffy was stretched out on a chaise lounge while Cordelia sat between the two vampires on a small sofa.
“Comfy?” Lakhesis asked Xander.
Nodding, he gave her a show of thumbs up while silently vowing to keep his mouth shut for a while. “This is great.”

If I kept quoting all my fave bits of this fic, I’d have to start up a new thread!

Loved how the stares from Cordy, Buffy and Willow had the boys say they’d turn down the Moirae. Heh, my eyes even narrowed dangerously at em!!

Another bit I adored was when Buffy was stood on on Angelus in the dark and Angel stealing a quick smooch from Cordy the sly dog! Sorry my FB ain’t long but how on Earth do you expect me to leave proper FB after this? You’ve really excelled with this and that’s all I can say.

Excellentay Lysa, superbly brilliant.


IMPRESS:

this was really very well done. and a really evil place to leave it. don’t make us wait too long to see what happens next.


FANGGIRL:

What else can I say but thank you for your work on this fic… I feel like I am reading a wonderful novel. It is brilliant. I would love to start quoting but I would be here all day because I loved all of it. I am in awww.

Jill


CHRISTY:

Lysa, you are amazing. Simply amazing. This is a masterpiece, the whole fic. The way you go into detail is astounding. Your story has blown my top off, rocked my socks, and rattled everything inside me. I can’t wait for more Lysa!

Wow!


ZANITA:

Lysa, I got one word. Epic. Simply Epic.

Bravo woman! Biting my nails for Angelus’ response to what’s going to happen….oooo, is he gonna be pissed!

Zan


HELEN:

Wow Lysa

Totally agree with Zan – EPIC is the WORD!

Superb storytelling, intrigue detail and history all interwoven into a thrilling ride of spell casting and bloody hell my head is still spinning. I am so sad cos this is coming ot a close and yet dammit I’m biting my nails at the same time.

Please post soon or I’ll go insane!!

Luv, Helen


MANDERS-21

Wow, is about all I can say right now. Im experiencing information overload, and shock, I think .

I was getting all jealous for Cordy (and Buffy, sadly) when Klotho(?) was all coming on to the vamps, and being all pregnant, and knowing who knocked her up. Heck, I was jealous for myself!

Oh my gosh if I have my implications correct, whcih I think I do, that means one of the vamps is destroyed! I don’t want that too happen! Im hoping they’ll just put them back together. I think im gunna be sick thinking, theres gunna be one without the other. Are they gunna have some test, or something? Suspense, its killing me!

Fantastic chapter, great in depth detailing and answering of many questions, but not the big one!

Please, post soon!

Amanda


GILLY:

Wow Lysa, wonderfully thought out and so well written.

I’m inclinded to agree with Manders, are we gonna need a hanky alert?

I hope you have a tear free resolution worked out.

Please don’t leave us in suspense too long.


HESPERUS:

Wow…just ….wow! You’re going to smush them back together right?- Lord, this is just one terrific body of work Lysa. Outstanding.


KATRINA:

Yeah I’m voting for smushing, please let there be smushing and not dying.


LIZS:

Lysa,

Whew! Finally got a chance to read this part! I loved it — the byplay with Klotho was great! I thought for a while that Cordy might attack her! Anyway, looking forward to the next part!


LUCKYLYN:

Wow, I can’t wait to see which vampire makes it. This is an amazing fic. Post more soon.


FRAZI:

Wow, I can’t wait to see which vampire makes it. This is an amazing fic. Post more soon.


DAMNSKIPPY:

That was just…wow! A truly phenomenal chapter. I have no idea how much of all that is based in fact/myth, but it all sounded authentic and like you’ve done your homework. And none of it was boring. You are truly talented!!

So the little slut Fate is going to give birth to a champion (metaphorically)? Hmmmm…maybe the champion isn’t one of the vamps.

I love the tale you’ve woven here. I thought the premise of this fic was going to span a few fun chapters, but you’ve made it epic and believable. Brava!!

Want more now!


ANDREA:

Wow Lysa, like Deb said, it looks like you’ve done your homework. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Please post more soon


AMZ:

Dude you rock. This story rocks and I am hooked. You really have done your homework and the plot and the way you’ve written it, the C/A sexual tension (which is *HOT* BTW) is just wow.

I *need* more soon ya hear?


ATHLANTIS:

OMG!!! (crossing fingers, closing eye and prying out load) please let it be Angelus, please let it be Angelus, please let it be Angelus…


ANGELIA:

Hey Lysa, just caught up on the last few parts and damn girl, you really know how to weave a tale, don’t you? I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to find out what the deal was with the Moirae and you sure as hell didn’t disappoint. At this point I don’t even know who to root for anymore. Either way I feel for Cordy because it won’t be easy no matter what happens. And I’m also kinda sad because this means the story will be ending soon and I don’t want it to. I’ll be on pins and needles until the next chapter so please don’t make us wait too long. Thanks for the fabulous story. Looking forward to the rest.


ALICE:

This is so good.

Your mythology is straight out of the watcher’s library – totally amazing

Put them back together! Put them back together! – comeon, Cordy wont be able to live without either of her boys – re-combine ’em, it’ll be f


SCOOBYSNAX:

Good Lord, please don’t tell me it’s Connor. I’ll scream. Despite my Connor/Jasmine fear, the chapter was fantastic and I don’t know what’s gonna happen. Poor Angel. Poor Angelus. Poor Cordy.

Glad I’ve kept you guessing. I will tell you that there isn’t a Connor or a Jasmine in sight…so relax. Other than that little tidbit, you’ll have to wait until the next chapter to find out what happens.

Thanks for all the FB everyone.    ~Lysa~

PART 38

QUOTE (Lysa @ Nov 9 2003, 12:17 AM)
TBC

The TBC is the only bit I didn’t like!

So much to quote, but I’ll stick to these tow long ones:

QUOTE
No thought of stopping entered Angel’s mind. He was too far gone with a basic urge to claim what his heart told him belonged to him. There was no thought of Angelus. No thought of the consequences. No thought of the dawn only hours away. Opening his mouth, Angel trailed his fangs along Cordelia’s throat producing a thin line of blood that his tongue greedily lapped up. He felt Cordelia shudder beneath him and Angel positioned his fangs over the tender spot on her neck that would bear his mark forever.

I truly thought Angel was gonna do it! So when he was yanked away it was quite a shock [and a let down, strangely enough ]

QUOTE
Fighting for consciousness, Cordelia felt the cool touch of fingers trailing down her arm.

As her eyelids fluttered open, Cordelia noticed the indirect light of early morning as it filtered into the bedroom. Several things became apparent in a short period. She was in her own bedroom, wearing her nightgown and she wasn’t alone. All of these things seemed to fit in with her hope that it was all a bad dream.

Sitting up, Cordelia turned to find herself trapped by the molten gaze of her bedmate as he silently reached up to thread his fingers through her hair. With a gasp, Cordelia pushed at his bare chest and scrambled to the far corner of the bed. As he moved to follow, she tumbled off of the bed onto the floor landing with a thunk.

When Cordelia peeked over the edge of the mattress, she found him lounging prone in a casual position, waiting for her verbal response. With her hazel eyes as wide as they could get, Cordelia asked with a combination of curiosity and despair, “W-Who are you?”

oh, WOW! [again, lol!] that ending was just so…..cruel – yet excellent, and I’m chewing at the bit in my need for more of this wonderful fic, Lysa *sigh*

Please don’t leave it too long – even though excellent work deserves to have time taken over it.

Brilliant, Lysa – thankyou for this – love ya


SUNSCORCHED:

Oh no, you did not just leave that there. You really didn’t.

QUOTE
“You got all the good letters,” Angel swiftly defended himself only to find his brother now laughing at him.

LOL!! I laughed at him too the big whiner!

QUOTE
Angel groaned aloud and walked over to the couch putting his feet up on the coffee table. “Why do I suddenly get the feeling my last night of existence will be spent watching Roadrunner cartoons?”

Again LOLing out loud!

QUOTE
“Angelus?” A loud gulp sounded on the other end followed by a long pause. Then the voice changed to a fake automated tone, “I’m sorry. Willow is currently unavailable to take your calls. Please leave a message after the tone and—”

The amount of times I’ve done this would shock you! Poor Willow, all her spells did go wrong at this point in time didn’t they?! I could only imagine how she would have had to explain herself to Angelus in S2! I would have loved to have seen something like that.

QUOTE
“Now?” Angelus gave her a strange look. Rolling his eyes, he walked over so Cordelia could pick up the glass. “Huh! I’m about to carry you off and make love to you and you get distracted by juice.”

Coulda been worse, she could have gotten distracted by a hunky man on TV!

QUOTE

Lysa *growls dangerously* you had better continue this ASAP girly or else I won’t be a happy puddy tat.

This was so sad and funny and all things wonderful at the same time. I felt so sorry for both Buffy and Cordelia when they were all saying their goodbyes, I felt so sorry for myself when I said my goodbyes!

I loved how Xander went after Buffy to comfort her and it makes me warm with the Big Love for him. I also want you to know at the end of the first post I was expecting some major action so I ran off to get a hot cuppa Typhoo tea and a cig only to find No Major Action!!!

The thing I loved the most about this part was Angel/Angelus making up and laughing with each other. That little scene was enough to make me want to read this fic from start to part 38. Loved it so very very very much, who’d have thought that when you took this challenge up it would turn into one of the most amazing fics I’ve ever read.

Zan said it best when she called it epic and that’s what it is. A fantastic and epic story that will be nominated when the next fic awards come round.

But now you need to tell us who it is with Cordelia before I blow a gasket trying to figure out who it is.

You know…I could’ve picked anywhere in the story to make a break since it was too long to fit into one post. Gotta admit that I picked that part on purpose for just that reason.

As they say on those live journals… Current Mood: Evil.

You have no idea the conversations I’ve had with myself (yes I am crazy) about having a threesome or not having a threesome in this fic. It’s not like I haven’t written one before.

(Those of you who don’t know what threesome I’m referring to…that’s for me to know and you to find out if you don’t mind being shocked.)

Frankly, I just couldn’t do it in DoN. I just felt it would be OOC for this Cordelia and certainly this Angelus. Angel probably would have gone along with it, but not the other two. Not unless I made it part of Giles little theory anyway and I seriously doubt he would have had the guts to suggest it.


AND:

More Great Parts Lysa, I can’t wait to find out what little game Angel is playing now and how the whole Angel/Angelus/Cordelia thing will be settled. Please post more soon

I almost didn’t read this part because I KNEW you were going to end it there and I knew I wouldn’t be able to wait for the next part!!! At least give us the first few paragraphs of the next part to tide us over. Pwease!!

Okay, you meany. It’s bad enough you didn’t give us the threesome, but you leave it like that *mumblemumblemumble*.

The least you can do is tell us in which fic you wrote the threesome! C’mon. I’m beggin’ ya here. Give us a bone…or two!

I guess you’re waiting on some feedback on this chapter. Well, I thought you really managed to convey just the right amount…

HELEN:

Lysa

This is me getting monontonous but damn this fic is superb, I’ve loved every single part and again with the epic proportions of yummy goodness.

QUOTE
“Vampires. Plural. Stop talking about them as if you’ve already killed one of them to satisfy your plans. Fix what you’ve done,” Cordelia had never begged for anything in her life, but suddenly did not care if her words came out that way, nor about the fact that she had an audience. “It’s not too late to change your mind. Please don’t let one of them die because you only need one as your champion. I-I need them both.”

This was strangely gut-wrenching I can so understand this- you have made them both separate and yet equally loveable and admirable in their own ways.

QUOTE
When the lights came on, Cordelia was sitting in Angelus’ lap on the floor with their mouths pressed together in a seemingly endless kiss. While Rupert Giles understood the urgency behind the embrace, he also felt it necessary to put an end to it despite the fact that interrupting a vampire in the middle of any task was rarely a good idea.

Love how Giles is so understanding of it all, he’s been a major supporting player and I love him for it.

QUOTE
Angelus could barely control his own anger despite his mate’s plea. The scent of her arousal made him come close to losing it, especially knowing how close Angel had come to putting his mark on her. Recognizing Cordelia’s feelings for Angel and even understanding the source of them was far different than seeing and scenting the evidence before his eyes.

Incredibly erotic and yet bloody awful for Angelus- talk about having me conflicted too!

Lord I’m on tenderhooks waiting to see where you are going to take this so pretty please post again soon!!!

Aaack! I wasn’t gonna say that here.

Okay, I admit it. Yes it was a C/A/B threesome in The First Connection.

My point remains that it was completely integral to that particular storyline. Versus naughty me just wanting to throw one into DoN for the heck of it just to satisfy myself and some of you equally naughty-minded people.

Now I’m feeling guilty I didn’t write one. Sheesh! I’ve been up half of the night thinking about my champion and wondering how I’m gonna come up with a plot for a smutty threesome standalone.

Let me tell you there are worse ways to spend half the night, especially when the other half is spent dreaming about all of the smutty things you’ve just come up with.

This board has just thoroughly corrupted me. I’ve always been a good girl and would never think of things like this on any regular basis.

What do you mean you don’t buy that? *SIGH* Okay, so I corrupted myself long ago.

Enjoy the torture, folks. I’m off to figure out how the heck I’m going to write what’s been in my head all night.


NAIRI:

Lysa this was great, i loved it. It was heartbreaking, sweet and sexy. I agree with you about the threesome even though it would have been great, it didn´t go with the story line. Cordy wouldn´t do that to Angelus. I can´t wait to read the next part to find out which vampire made it. one thing is sure i am not going to try and guess b/c somehow i know i´ll guess wrong.

“I know that you love her, Angelus,” he moved his fingers along Cordelia’s soft cheek after climbing into bed next to her. “It’s been torture having Cordelia so near and yet not being able to have her. If by some strange turn of fate, I’m still here…I just want you to know that I’d never hurt her.”

“Cordelia was right to call you a dumbass,” Angelus told him. “You think I don’t know how you feel about her? How you’ve always felt even when you had other things on your mind. If I thought there was a slight chance of you hurting Cordelia, I would’ve staked you long before now no matter the consequences to myself.”

Liked both Angel and Angelus acknowledging each others feelings for Cordy. This part was both sad and funny in equal amounts.

Post more soon.

How could you leave it there, that’s way beyond evil! You had me guessing all through out this chapter as to what was going to happen. At first I thought the three of ’em were going upstairs to have some fun, then no, then yes, then no again, and then at the end I was completely sure of it. But now that you stopped, I just don’t know, and that’s the worst thing. I love this, so you better post more soon. Oh my gosh it’s gunna be a long peorid of hell before you post the next part, isn’t it! Now I have to go and try not to think about it, agghhhh, wish me luck it’s so not gunna be easy to do!

Okay, let me say that I totally agree with what you’re saying here. But when will you ever have the situation of having Angel and Angelus both together at the same time in two physical forms, never again! Therefore, I think you definitely have to write a standalone that is from this storyline but not in the original. It could be like Cordelia thinking about what the threesome would be like, or it could be like this is what would have happened if it had fit with the storyline. Im not begging for it necessarily, but I’m not too far off of it. Anyway, I just hate to see the perfect opportunity for what we all would kill for to just pass everyone by, including you, your muse, and your writing abilities. Love it! Would love some more!

“Don’t you see? I’ve only been sharing Angel’s soul through our connection. What will happen if I am the one who is chosen? Without a soul will I be able to love you the way you deserve to be loved?”

I just love Angelus so much (could that be cos he reminds me of Angel? nah). And this line brought a tear to my eye.

I was so very involved in the story that when Cordy fell asleep courtesy of Willow’s pink stuff I actually let out a little scream of frustration, damn I wanted to spank that witch. I know she meant well but you know what they say about good intentions?

And the ending, yes evil, but also so very intriguing.

I really liked your Oz and the way Willow was surprised when he spoke up, so very true to the show, but then all your characters are. This is such a great story and I never never want it to end, but I guess all good things must come to an end, kind of like this feedback and it’s pointless rambling and never ending dribble.

Love it all Lysa, you are my hero for writing such a fantastic fic.

To see glimpses of both Aus and Angel in the way he speaks to her and treats her and yet you pulled out totally Beige!Angel with this:

quote:
“Don’t make me move you.”

So she’s got to deal mostly with Beige!Angel with occasional moments of A/Aus. Not of the fun. Poor baby.

And this line just hit me as very sexy.

If it’s not going to be my name on your lips, Cordelia, it will simply be my lips on yours.”

The feedback you deserve will now commence uninterrupted…

QUOTE

The body she recognized, but his eyes held the difference. From the first, she had been able to tell Angelus apart from Angel, but the vampire currently teasing her with those molten stares was neither one as far as Cordelia could tell.

Observent little thing isn’t she? At first, when she said “Who are you?” I nearly had heart failure cus the first thing I thought of was both Angel and Angelus were gone and this was someone else entirely. Then I carried on reading and my heart was okay again!

QUOTE

“We’ll see how you respond to having the Slayer in your face for the rest of the day.”
With a speed that made her head swim, the vampire appeared directly in front of her and wrested the phone from her grasp before she could punch in the code.

LOL I’d snatch the phone out of her hand too if she threatened me with having the Slayer in my face all day.

QUOTE
“I’d like to make it personal, sweetheart,” he returned smoothly causing a shudder to zip down her spine.

Yes, I like this hybrid a hell of a lot and he’s barely spoken!

QUOTE
“I don’t think so, lover. The Fates didn’t put me in your bed intending to allow you to walk away.”

“You said to forget the Fates,”

Your Cordy is a work of art and you should be proud.

QUOTE
Giles wasn’t certain why he reacted that way to the simple comment other than it meant he was about to face the unknown in the form of the familiar.

I loved the words you used here, they are descriptive but short and to the point.

QUOTE
“Very touching, Rupert,” the vampire responded smoothly meeting the Watcher eye to eye as he strolled closer. “Giving Cordelia a shoulder to cry on this way is so kind and fatherly of you.”

It was not the tone of his voice, but the pointed stare that suggested the vampire hinted his concern might be based on something less parental by nature. Evidenced by the fact that his arm was around Cordelia’s shoulder and her arms remained around his waist. Finally, it dawned on him that no matter who this vampire was, he remained completely territorial when it came to Cordelia Chase.

Oh yes, my love for this hybrid is getting stronger. Possessiveness is so hot when it’s in the shape of a equally hot manpire and this manpire generates enough heat to make the sun feel cold!!! The Angelus in him really comes out here, with the meaningful glare and his words.

QUOTE
“Sorry, Cordelia,” he answered dryly. “I left my soul detector in my other jacket.”

LOL. Always did love Giles’ dry sense of humour.

QUOTE
“Just call him Clarence,” Cordelia suggested with a straight face

Yet again with the LOLing!

If I quote anymore then I’ll be here all night! This part was fantastically amazing, this cocktail of Angel/Angelus/Liam is so alcoholic… Can I have the recipe so I can make one?! He’s everything a manpire should be and he’s also my perfect man!

All personalities came out clearly but yet he added his own little spark to the mix that also came out. How on Earth Cordelia kept her willpower I’ll never know. I’m in two minds about her guilt, on one hand she hasn’t lost them but on the other she doesn’t have them either. What a dilemma… But I guess she’ll just have to get to know him then won’t she?

Can not wait until Angel meets the Scoobies, it’ll be interesting to see their reaction, Buffy’s in particular because something tells me that those two are not gonna get on one iota.

*Applauds wildly* I’m gonna find a special e-card with a medal on it just for you. I Love You and keep up with the mind-blowing work.


KIMMERS:

ok here goes Lysa love the way that you have worked this love the Sweet yet possive new vampire really does something for me and when i saw this thought hey thisd is so wonderful can’t wait for more
from Kimmers


IMPRESS:

(Excited Smilie) <—my reaction when I saw a new chapter had been posted.
(Hug Smilie) <—my reaction when I finished reading it.

This was just so damn good. I felt for Cordy and adored your ‘new’ Angel. This is one hell of a ride you have us on and I am looking forward to more.


HESPERUS:

Yay! You smushed them! Didn’t they smush well! Yum. Poor Cordy though, going to need a little time to grieve and I can’t wait to see the others reactions to him as well. Yet another astounding chapter Lysa. Thank you.


HELEN:

Lysa

OMG I am seriously speechless! No kidding I was reading this with my mouth open going oh my god what to quote cos its ALL outstanding.

Cripes I still don’t know what to say my brain is musuh. Oh yeah I miss the two vamps but I love the new one too so just call me conflicted . Cordelia god I felt so sorry for her when she realised both Angel and Angelus where gone but hot damn am I jealous of the one she now has to get used to, phrwwwr.

QUOTE
It was not the tone of his voice, but the pointed stare that suggested the vampire hinted his concern might be based on something less parental by nature. Evidenced by the fact that his arm was around Cordelia’s shoulder and her arms remained around his waist. Finally, it dawned on him that no matter who this vampire was, he remained completely territorial when it came to Cordelia Chase.

Loved that he is so much of the two and of course big hell yeah! for ht territorialness of vamps

QUOTE
Were you planning to make me happy, Cordelia, just so you could have your mate back?”
With a shocked look, Cordelia denied it vehemently. “Make you happy? I won’t even make you breakfast.”

This has me LMAO!! loved the quick witted snark- it is soo Cordy Chase

QUOTE
Cordelia half expected the typical Angel retort of ‘Are Too’, but he wasn’t about to be drawn into that little game. He reached down to wind the belt of her robe in his hand and asked, “Which will it be, Cordy? Silk, leather or metal? I’ll leave you the choice.”

Jeeze what a choice- how about all three, one after the other

Bloody brilliant Lysa, simply put- gimme more!

Luv, Helen


STARAICE:

YAY- Anew part! A new part! I was reaidn gthis and you reached the end and I was thinking, hey she could end it here if she wanted too but I was extremely plased to see the TBC at the bottom of the page. This rocks
Luv Starry


CALIFI:

I asbsolutely ADORE hybrid Angel! He has all the qualities I love from both A/Aus [which is kinda the way I write him meself, lol!] Them combined like that make him totally hot and delicious- yum!

Poor Cordy- talk about confusing! I can so understand it too- feeling like she’s betraying them – but she isn’t, is she? Her head must be spinning like a top, and with him being so sweet and tender…I don’t know how she’s resisted him this long- I don’t think I’d be that strong

What I’m trult looking forard to is his inevitable meeting with the others!His reaction to Buff especialy…and wondeering if Cordy will make a run for it when he most likey does patrolling [which is a given]

Love the way he can’t stop touching her- like to reassure himself she’s really there, and his need for closeness.

The way he’s being so patient is also reaaly sweet- I can’t see her holding off her feelings for much longer with such a sweet, hot yummy Vamp in her life!

Thanks soooo much for writing/posting this wonderful NOVEL! – cos that’s what it has been like! I know it’s coming to an end soon, but knowing you [and hoping!] we’ll have a few more chapters yet!

Cali xx


MARIE:

Jerking back, Cordelia slapped at his chest. The panic was starting to win out rising in her throat as a high-pitched shriek, “Personal bubble!”

“I’d like to make it personal, sweetheart,” he returned smoothly causing a shudder to zip down her spine.

Oohhhh!! I loved that part.

This new and improved Angel is definitely way hotter

This is so good

Can’t wait to read the next part


AND:

Holy Cow Lysa, your new Angel is hot! I love how he uses both Angel’s and Angelus’ pet names for Cordelia. I simply can’t wait for more. Please post more soon. This story rocks so much. Thank you for writing it and writing it brillantly


LYSA:

Whew! Maybe I can relax a bit. I was preparing my Last Will & Testament and travel plans to avoid the death squads of mercenary assassins that might be sent my way.

Is that another way of telling me I can’t keep my mouth shut? See my conversation with Deb in the new writer’s thread.

Quoting Hesperus:

QUOTE

You smushed them! Didn’t they smush well! Yum.

Yep. Smushed ’em. My reason for thinking the death squads might be headed my way. Some of the Angel-only and Angelus-only Vamp Camps were getting me worried. I see Gab (Athlantis) gave the smushing a thumbs up over at ST, and she is so pro-Angelus that I was waiting for a Chilean tornado to hit Texas.

Refer to above comment about other thread. Guess I could have ended it there. I actually thought about it even though I already had some other ideas. Now that I’ve got this hot new version of Angel, I wanna play with him for a while. Umm…I think that came out wrong, but it’s probably accurate too.

Thanks for everyone’s feedback Hugs to all.


CHRISTY:

This chapter was so emotional. I felt Cordy’s pain, feeling the loss of the two vamps she loves.

This part I loved, and cried..

QUOTE

“I can’t bring them back to you, Cordelia,” Angel spoke quietly with his head resting on the pillow next to hers, “but I promise that I will do my best to love and protect you. I don’t know what the Moirae have in store for me, but I want you by my side. Always.”

The shower scene was outstanding.

To be honest, I didn’t want her to lose Angelus. But, combining the two was brilliant as hell. I love the new ‘Angel(us)’, I can see both vamps in there, and I love it. I hope given time, Cordy will love him, completely, and knowing you, they will. You, Lysa, are a goddess, and I love you


ZANITA:

Play away babe!

I’ll admit, I had no idea which way you were going to go (me being partial to the Angel camp was just a tad worried) But you came up with the ‘Please Everyone’ solution! It was brilliant! Helen was spot on, they smooshed great!

You totally could have ended it here and I’m so glad you didn’t. You’ve pretty much opened it to a whole other fic, you could go onto a whole new saga with this new Angel-us.

Praise, praise and more praise. How do I praise thee? Let me count the ways!

TIPDIP:

*Gulp* (heavy panting…!)

QUOTE

Angel’s mouth twitched at one corner. A deep timbre sounded in his voice as he said, “You are incorrigible, but you’re not going to win this one. If it’s not going to be my name on your lips, Cordelia, it will simply be my lips on yours.”

OMFG! I love the way you portray Angel in this chapter! Hot, dominant,….Argh!

Can’t wait for the next chapter!

DAMNSKIPPY:

Lysa, I left you FB on ST so now I’m leaving FB for the FB. I’m going to have to reread this I think because my view of the “new” Angel is decidedly different than other people’s. Everyone is calling him “sweet” and other than the shower scene, sweet was not a word I felt while reading. He felt much more dark and menacing the way he surrounded her constantly and kept telling her he’d have her and she was his. And when you used the “Don’t make me move you” line, it clicked in me that this felt like Beige!Angel from S2 and he was not sweet in my mind. He was obsessed, cruel, not much fun and certainly not with the funny lines. Am I nuts for seeing him more dark and menacing? Or maybe I’m just so sad for Cordy that I’m making too much of the “bad” parts and am blinded to the good parts.


NAIRI:

Lysa that was brilliant, amazing and simply wonderful. I love your new improved and sexy Angel maybe b/c i always thought of Angel and Angelus as one and the same, so by smushing them together you made my day . I felt so sorry for Cordy, i could feel her pain and the shower scene was hearthbreaking. Loved the ending when Angel promised to love and protect her always it was a testament of his love. Can´t wait to read more, please post again soon.

You may be reading Cordelia’s take on his attitude moreso than the way he plans to come across. I’d say obsession was probably pretty key. Cruel? Nah. I didn’t intend that. At least until the shower scene, Cordelia was probably feeling a lot of the same things you have mentioned.

Writing this hybrid Angel is going to be a difficult line to walk. Just remember that the Moirae hinted his path could go either way… Good or Evil. The potential is there for both. We’ll just have to see what happens next.

I guess that’s my cue for more of that plotting & planning I told you about.


GILLY:

Great part Lysa, I must admit to having worries about what you would do with A/Aus. I think Cordy”s gonna take a bit of convincing and not just carry on where they left off. I wonder what the Scoobies will think, is he going to be evil or nice to them.

I’ve got a feeling there’s more of the original Angelus floating about, I think Buffy’s going to suffer.

I bow down with awe at your wonderful fic, keep it coming.


MANDERS-21

Lysa, you’ve outdone yourself, this is some truly amazing writing. Wow! I probably said this about the last chapter, but this has to be favorite one so far!

Of course it makes perfect sense now that neither Angel/Angelus would be left, if only I had of connected her fake pregnancy and the consequent rebirth of a new warrior, I would’ve got it. Really, I would’ve!

New Angel sends shivers up my spine, of the both the scary and sexy kind. I’ve never felt such a confusion of feelings about a character before, that was just awesome.

Poor Cordy, what a shock, she thought she was at least going to come away with one of them, but then neither. And now she’s tied to some vamp she doesn’t know and is pretty much told shes gunna get to know him real well soon. I was right with her when she was crying in the bathroom.

I would love some more right now, but understand that mastery takes time!

You know I have to agree with DamnSkippy, that’s the very first impression I got of him and It stuck as I read it again. If I had to describe him with one word it definitely wouldn’t be sweet, that just doesn’t accurately describe the feeling he gave me, not that I feel he’s a meany or anything. Cordelia’s distress and uncertainty I thought was completely right on, and would have thought that he would have seen the justification in it and been respectful of it. Anyway, I love the story and am not complaining at all, you have to believe me on that one. Im just supporting DS in her interpretation of the chararcter portrayed. So, Im gunna go……..

No, I didn’t mean THIS Angel was cruel. I was just referring to how Beige!Angel was. I didn’t find this guy to be cruel (yet). Just that the vibe I was getting was *more* of the obsessive, it’ll-be-my-way-or-the-highway Angel rather than anything on the sweet side which reminded me of Beige!Angel.

And I’m not complaining. I think this chapter is amazingly good. It is a very fine line you’re walking and I’m getting both the bad and good vibes was all I was trying to say.


BECJANE:

Poor Cordy! I can understand how she feels like she’s lost both Angel and Angelus right now. Hopefully she’ll get used to her new ‘Angel’ very soon.

Loved all the names for him she kept coming up with

New Angel was a bit insensitive to start with but redeemed himself with this:

QUOTE

“C’mon, baby. Let’s get you back to bed.” Angel felt her arms come up around his shoulders as he lifted her into his arms. While there was a distinct possibility that Cordelia was clinging to him simply out of a need for comfort, he wondered if there was an inkling of acceptance.

Gently depositing her in the bed, Angel climbed in behind her tucking the covers around them both. Soft sniffles replaced the alternating sobs and periods of dead silence. He spooned his body against her pulling Cordelia into the safe harbor of his arms. She stiffened against him, making Angel realize comfort was not so simple when you were the reason for the angst and pain. Worse, the idea that you could be jealous of yourself.

“I can’t bring them back to you, Cordelia,” Angel spoke quietly with his head resting on the pillow next to hers, “but I promise that I will do my best to love and protect you. I don’t know what the Moirae have in store for me, but I want you by my side. Always.”

Aww!!

Post more soon Lysa.

Becky


KATRINA:

Wow Lysa, sorry to be so late to the party, look at what I’ve been missing, poor me.

This was so fantastic. I love the new smushed man-pire muchly.

QUOTE
She pressed the off button. “Sheesh! If you were attacking me, I’d be dead by now.”

Gotta love the sense of urgency a phone call to Giles can have NOT!

QUOTE
Cordelia pulled open the door to find Giles standing outside wearing a tweed jacket over his burgundy pajamas.

Aww but he did rush right over and how cute is that image.

QUOTE
“Make you happy? I won’t even make you breakfast.”

I really loved the way you captured Cordy’s pain and her dilemna, with the names and the not giving the new man-pire either Angel or Angelus’ mug.

QUOTE
Cordelia cursed the way her body responded to that husky promise. Damn him for sounding so hot and looking identical to her vampires.

Mmmm…….

I really like the new vampire, he is dark and possessive yet has a wicked sense of humour and gotta love him for loving our Cordy so very much. The tenderness in the shower was so beautiful, poor Cordy you captured her pain so well. Her mate has gone (in a way) and it’s natural to grieve.

I so love you and cannot wait for more. I’m happy you want to play some with the new Angel cos I want to read some of that, see how well we mesh, it just works out perfectly.

Double or Nothing Part 40

Lysa,
Thanks for providing me(and others, but especially me!) many hours of reading pleasure. I have been reading Double or Nothing since the beginning. Every Sunday, I race to my computer hoping you’ve posted the latest chapter. This has unraveled into quite an epic. Kudos to you!

Lovin’ every minute it,
Leslie


SUNSCORCHED:

Wanted first FB place again!!!

Will edit when I’ve read it, now I’m going to make a hot cup of Typhoo and get me a cigarette so I can relax and read merrily!!!

Lysa, every time you post a new part you surpass the last. Before I quote, I’m gonna shower you with praise, hugs, snogs and then I’m gonna curtsey!!!

This was, like all other parts, amazing; from the characterisations to everything else. The way you’re portraying Angel is like nothing I’ve ever read and it leaves me slack-jawed and in awe of the way you write him. So many different sides to his personality are clearly shown, not just by the words he uses but also in his instantaenous reactions like when Xander made that comment to Cordy.

For a minute there, I thought Buffy was gonna explore options with Angel but the way he made it known it wasn’t ever gonna happen made me jump for joy! I felt sorry for Willow, poor little mite she’s really missing Angelus isn’t she? What I wouldn’t give to see Buffy/Willow throw-down over Angel/Angelus name on the show!

I noticed how Angel also referred to Willow as his witch, methinks Oz might have something to say about that if he ever finds out how he thinks, so might Cordy for that matter.

That brings me to Cordy, she’s really taking this hard isn’t she? Bless her little furry slippers, the poor love! I’m still going between whether or not she would be cheating on Angel(us) if she did open up to Angel. Yes, he has their memories but he technically isn’t either vamp, what a dilemma. I guess she’ll have to settle for him having the same bod!!!

Angel’s emotions are coming across so vividly and I actually feel for him too, everyone’s acting like he’s a stranger but he isn’t in a way. They know him, they trusted him with their lives and they trusted Angelus somewhat too so why can’t they trust him? Wow, this story has so many little things I wanna point out but I’d be here all morning so I’m gonna pick a few quotes and leave it at that!!

QUOTE
“I can’t believe Angelus is gone,” Willow’s lower lip quivered unhappily. “He was such a sweet vampire.”

Aww, poor Willow!!!

QUOTE
“Listen to yourself, Will. You just said that Angelus was sweet. Angelus! The Scourge of Europe sweet? No wonder the Fates got rid of him. What use is a sweet formerly evil vampire when they want a champion?”

“That’s not a nice thing to say, Xander Harris,” gasped Willow. “You take that back.”

I would give my life savings to hear this on the show.

QUOTE
Maybe Cordy needed her cage rattled a little, Angel figured. These were her friends, not a group of total strangers.

Angel knows her so well and sometimes even Cordy needs a kick up the butt!!

QUOTE
Though soft, his voice carried a potent message with a single word of his official greeting. “Slayer.”

*swings arms round in circles* Go An-gel Go An-gel!!

QUOTE
It was a defense mechanism— only in reverse since it seemed to cause certain vampires to attack him for making a simple point.

LOL! Your Xander is truly a work of art.

QUOTE
“You’re letting me drive the Plymouth without you?” Cordelia barely controlled the urge to giggle in delight.

Why can’t I have the keys to the Plymouth?? *pouts and glares out of window at Peugot in disgust*


KATRINA:

Wow, another fantastic part Lysa.

QUOTE

Oz paused to look around for other reactions. Finding no other opinions voiced, he added an interested nod, “Cool.”

Now Buffy, Xander and Willow were gaping at him. Apparently ‘cool’ wasn’t the right descriptor for the situation in their minds.
I really loved Oz, his summation of the situation, his silent offer of support to a hurting Cordy and his caring in warning off Angel after he and Willow had ‘babysat’ her.

Cordy’s pain is so real and deep, I really feel bad for her. I want to reach out and hug her and make it better, that is how well you’ve captured it.

QUOTE

“I have no idea what the Moirae are up to or how I fit into their cosmic game, Cordelia,” Angel admitted softly as he continued to caress her face with his fingertips. “I regret that you’ve been hurt by their actions, but I can’t tell you that I’d wish they’d done otherwise. Sweetheart, I want to be here doing whatever it takes to keep us together.”

Cordelia’s pulse raced as his fingers trailed down her throat. “We’re not together, Angel. We just sleep in the same bed.”

That ending is a little bit heart breaking. I have tears in my eyes for them. I hope that time makes this feel better and can bring them some happiness.

Wonderful fantastic part Lysa, thank you.


IMPRESS:

Lysa that was just fab. I get so excited when I see a new chap cuz I just know it’s gonna be good. and each and every time I have been proven right. Can’t wait to see where you take this next.


MANDERS-21

Yah, we get more and it doesn’t end here either!

The image of Cordy and Angel dressed alike gave me the impression of a powerful couple, envied by all, and perfectly-matched for each other. The feelings that simple image produced were plentiful.

Now I have to start quoting

QUOTE

Caught up in her own denial, Cordelia ignored the wracking jealousy that twisted her guts. Even though Angel had certainly made it clear to Xander that she was not on the singles market that did not rule out residual feelings for Buffy Summers. The idea grated against her heart, but Cordelia kept reminding herself that this wasn’t Angelus. It wasn’t even Angel who might have an excuse.
Petulantly, Cordelia muttered under her breath, “Go for it, Bad Boy.”

I was right with Cordy and feeling jealousy for her, especially when Angel almost murdered Xander for even suggesting she was single. That rubbed me the wrong way

QUOTE

“I regret that you’ve been hurt by their actions, but I can’t tell you that I’d wish they’d done otherwise. Sweetheart, I want to be here doing whatever it takes to keep us together.”
Cordelia’s pulse raced as his fingers trailed down her throat. “We’re not together, Angel. We just sleep in the same bed.”

By the end I was almost feeling sorry for Angel, but alas I had to agree with Cordy. Is it wrong that I almost want her to refuse him and walk away. That ultimately she shouldn’t have to feel like she has to settle for second best. I guess Im still feeling Cordy bitterness, and that when she starts to warm up to her fate with him, so will I.

Love this Lysa, thanks for another great part.
The way you made me feel so patiently, even if it was bitterness, shows that you truly have a written a fantastic fic .

Amanda


HESPERUS:

Whoa. That was staggering. I can’t…you just….Gah! Honestly! The power dressing was a beautiful touch, but what captivated me was the stare down between Angel and Cordelia in the library. That scene was so strong, intense and gripping. I could literally feel myself walking around them, watching the silent conversation and the battle of wills.

QUOTE   Lysa, every time you post a new part you surpass the last.

Amen sister!
ps Scorchy..Typhoo?Typhoo? Surely this story is worthy of the much more sophistcated pyramid bag!


CALIFI:

What can I say? I love this Angel- a combination of all personalities in one body. I’m different than most in thinking it is essentially Angel of old- not the first time he’s shared memories; Angelus/Liam, so I’m all for it.

Cordy is bound to go through the process of grief, and I really feel for her being in this position- but I don’t believe she would be betraying Angelus at all, as he is in there. I’ve read fb where she has been hinted as traitorous, which I think is rather harsh. Her body recognises his already, so her torn emotions are understandible.

Can’t tell you how much I love this fic, and I love the New Angel equally- wishing all the way through that they would end up blended in one- and, YAY! the perfect solution in my eyes.

Thought I’d get that out there, and end by saying I seriously cannot wait for more of this excellent fic, Lysa!


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Love thsi so much it was great to see the way that Angel trust Cordy lol it was brillant
from Kimmers


HELEN:

Lysa

How come every part leaves me speechless and gagging for more. I loved everyone’s interaction. B/A/ C/A Oz and Angel. Angel and Xander, Willow and Xander. This whole fis is a scrumtious treat!

QUOTE

“I can’t believe Angelus is gone,” Willow’s lower lip quivered unhappily. “He was such a sweet vampire.”

When I started reading I would never have thought I’d be in full agreement here!

QUOTE

Petulantly, Cordelia muttered under her breath, “Go for it, Bad Boy.”

Angel’s head turned swiftly toward her as soon as the soft words were out of her mouth. It seemed his attention wasn’t completely turned elsewhere after all. Well…good. She was glad he heard her. Except Cordelia realized she used her pet name for Angelus with her tart suggestion. With her body feeling one thing and her mouth adding to Cordelia’s confusion, it did not take an irate look from the vampire to know she was in trouble

Ooh this just gave me the happy shivers. The chracterisations are once again 100% spot on IMO and poor Cordy you can feel her pain so clearly and her confusion which obviously makes it so much worse.

Can’t wait for of this so prepare to be stalked mercilessly

Luv’n’Hugs, Helen


MARIE:

Wow Great Chapter.

I esp loved this section

Quote

Focused entirely upon him, Buffy felt the tingling sensations deep within her solar plexus spreading warmth throughout her body as every nerve and muscle reacted. Her blue eyes opened wide, first with confusion and then followed instantly by a sharp recognition as she searched the fathomless depths of his eyes.

“Angel,” his name tumbled from her throat on a gasp.

It was followed immediately by the vampire’s acknowledgement that Buffy was correct in determining precisely where things stood between them. Though soft, his voice carried a potent message with a single word of his official greeting.

“Slayer.”

Catching her breath, Buffy took in the intensity of that razor’s edge stare. Her body wasn’t reacting with excitement now, she realized. It had been her Slayer senses all along acting as a warning that she’d been too emotionally overloaded to recognize. They still sounded off tingling madly at the close proximity to her natural enemy, a stranger that possessed the face and body of her lover.

That was just so descriptive and although I normally don’t go for Angel and Buffy, it made me aware that at one time the two did have feelings for each other and that Buffy must be feeling hurt and confused.
Well done

Looking forward to next chapter


DAMNSKIPPY:

Things aren’t going swimmingly for either Cordy or Angel, huh? Wow, there’s just too much to quote.

I winced at the picture in my head of Cordy frantically trying to make Angel give up the coat that Angelus wore. Then to go from that show of pain to her Queen C mask was such a Cordy thing to do. That wall is up and it’s going to take a lot of priests and horns to blow it down.

I LOVE Oz and the way he can see through everyone and everything. His interaction with Angel and then with Cordy was brilliant.

Yep, gotta say, loving the fact that Angel put Buffy out of the picture with one word. That was hot!

As much as I can feel for Cordy, the logical person in me thinks she’s damn lucky to have even a part of Angelus and Angel. He’s got his body and he’s got all their shared memories. Count your blessings, girl!!

I’m beginning to feel more sorry for the new guy. He’s doing a pretty good job of not pressuring her even though he knows just what he’s missing. I’m thinking though, he’s not going to last much longer. That itch to claim her must be getting pretty damn strong.

Can’t wait for the next part.


CHRISTY:

I loved this chapter Lysa. I could feel and see every feeling from Cordy and Angel. You write it so……damn good

I like Oz in this piece. And poor Willow, she misses her friend Angelus.

I like the new Angel. If Cordy don’t get on with it soon, I’m gonna push her out of the way and take him for myself!!

More!!


GILLY:

Another fabulous chapter Lysa, I love the way you portray all the different Angel’s.

Do I detect a hint of Cordy warmth when she saw his injuries, that’s what he must do, get hurt badly then she’ll have to nurse him.

Poor Giles still suffering wth Jenny’s death, and Willow was lovely, throwing herself at him in an ‘all is forgotten’ way. Buffy thinking there may be a chance no chance.

Eagerly waiting next part.


ZANITA:

What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Beautifully written again, very poignant.


NAIRI:

Lysa another amazing chapter, i love your new Angel he is so hot. The getting to know eachother talk with the Scoobies was fun, i liked the way Willow started calling him Aus and accepting him as her friend once again. Xander was his goofy self just the way i like him. Oz now what can i say about him, he is just Oz. Loved the ending, it was sweet and sad at the same time. I can´t wait to read more, please post again soon.
Hugs Nairi


TIPDIP:

Another wonderful chapter, Lysa! Woo hoo! Sorry I’m so late with the FB…RL issues..trust me..don’t ask!
I was glad to see Willow get into it with Buffy about much she prefers Aus over Angel…LOL!

Loved the interaction between Cordy and Oz, and I was hoping that Angel would put the smackdown on Xander….I love that BTVS character, but somedays his mouth can get him into trouble! LOL!

I love the new Angel as well…a bit of all 3..who can ask for anything more?

This was another great chapter to a wonderful fic!

Please post soon! 40 chapters…wow! How many pages is this great piece of work?

Hugs!
CAMMY


WITCHCAT:

Thanks immensley for posting! You’ve just made my entire weekend and made it easier to contemplate Monday’s early start! It feels like I’ve been waiting for ages for this chapter and can hardly wait for the next. But don’t rush anything, this has been one of the most interesting interpretations on Angel’s psyche that I’ve read and it’s only getting better with every chapter. Keep up the great writing!


STARAICE:

oh wow!

quote:

“We’re not together, Angel. We just sleep in the same bed.”

That had to hurt though.

I love the fact that she is being so loyal to Angelus- can’t wait to see what happens when she finally admits to herself that a part of him IS Angelus though.


LUCKYLYN:

I just love this fic. Cordy’s resistance to the new Angel can’t last long. I love Willow actually being upset over the loss of Angelus. That was so sweet. Post more soon

quote:

“Oh.” Cordelia figured he’d go for denying it. “W-What would you have done?”

I tried to quote the whole thing but it wouldn’t le me . Oh for the offer of being tied up by that manpire (sigh) if wishes were horses

Love it as always!!

Smooches, Helen


CORDY452:

Cordelia’s pulse raced as his fingers trailed down her throat. “We’re not together, Angel. We just sleep in the same bed.”

SCOOBYSNAX:

DAMN! I feel like I’m watching Passions. I want Cordy to be happy!!!!!!!

Be your muse??? Sounds like a fun job. Muse…beta…whatever, Frazi. Don’t worry about your big sap factor. You’ve got nothing on me. Talk about Sappy.

It looks like Angel’s finally getting through to Cordy. The way you’ve written them both is so wonderful. Post more soon.

Great part. I especially loved the ending. Update soon.

Cordelia knew she should be saying no. How hard could it be? No. No. No. Piece of cake. Easy as pie. Sticky as syrup.

She lifted a hand between them, planning to push at his chest, but found her hand curling into the lapel of his coat instead. Gazing up into those questing eyes, Cordelia whispered, “Good morning, Angel.”

“Sweetheart,” Angel covered her mouth with his kiss as he pulled her close into his arms. Neither one cared that it was no longer morning.

Absolutely perfect. I love it.
Frazi, you are one lucky girl, you get beta Lysa. I want her tooooo!!!


FRAZI:

I log in two days after a very major computer crash and Lysa wants to be my muse?!?!??!!!!
*faint*
Talk about overload! heheh. Don worry sweety. I’m gona take you up on that offer


MOTHERLOVE711:

Happy Belated Birthday, Lysa!

I wanted to take a minute and applaud you for another job well done. There is no one that can write a story that is sympathetic to all its characters the way you do. Buffy, Cordy, Angel/Angelus/Angel-II. There is never a false or unearned emotion in your writing, unlike on the actual show. But, I digress…

With the quality of writing dwindling to almost nothing, I feel obligated to encourage those that consistently write their asses off. I have read several of your other stories, but I must say, this one has taken me around the bend and back. I’m always trying to stay a step ahead, and you’re always fooling me. Did the story end when Angel realized he was in love with Cordy? Did the story end when Angel was losing his grip on his soul? Did the story end when the true champion was revealed?

Lysa, if there is anything you’ve taught me, it’s to sit back and enjoy the ride! And I will.

Keep up the good work!
Leslie


IMPRESS:

I sooo adore this fic. it’s just keeps getting better and better. I really like your new Angel. And poor Cordy. I can’t decide whether to hug her cuz she’s hurting over losing Angelus and Angel, or smack her for not giving in to this Angel already.

More SOON!


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
I will forgive you for not replying to my fics that often becuase i can see that you have been working on this update which is a brillant update cna’t wait for more this gets better and better each time
from Kimmers


KATRINA:

Wow another part, thanks Lysa, you rock baby.

QUOTE

“Cordelia,” nodded Angel without apologizing for the fact. As far as he was concerned, that was where his focus should be.

I agree, Angel is all over prioritised and it’s wonderful. Mmm Kat daydreams about being the recipient of some Angel focus.

QUOTE

“Perhaps Cordy was trying to make up for yelling at you,” came the innocent suggestion, “by buying you presents.”

Giles is too cute for words, not sure if he is insanely innocent or just in another place sometimes, the things that come out of that mans mouth.

QUOTE

She lifted a hand between them, planning to push at his chest, but found her hand curling into the lapel of his coat instead. Gazing up into those questing eyes, Cordelia whispered, “Good morning, Angel.”

“Sweetheart,” Angel covered her mouth with his kiss as he pulled her close into his arms. Neither one cared that it was no longer morning.

Aww sigh, loved this ending to pieces. So heart warming, they are really starting to connect.

Love it all Lysa, fantastic job as usual. You are just the best mwah

Kat


HELEN:

Lysa

OK squiggle of excitement loved it so much. As superb as ever I don’t know how you maange to keep the suspense up so briliantly. Don’t think I didn’t notice that little reference of Giles to consequences

Geeze which quotes to pick- there are so many:

QUOTE

“We negotiated,” Angel admitted the fact to the Watcher.
“So she let you keep Angelus’ mug?” Giles thought that was a bit of progress.
The vampire shook his head. “No. She took both of them, including my favorite— the one she gave me when mine broke.”
“Yours?”
Irritated that he had to make a differentiation between himself and Angel, he clarified, “Angel’s special mug. Cordelia took both of them and threw them in the trash.”

That was kinda lovely brings back Angel tot he fore and then later on with the Angelus memories. Smmothly done to being back to our attention that this IS both of them!!

QUOTE

Oh, dear. Giles figured the vampire’s sudden appearance in the middle of the school day did not bode well for maintaining the peace. “If offering your help has been taken the wrong way, perhaps you are making too much of an effort to please her. Women can be a bit contrary that way.”

Ooh does that mean no more Mr Nice Guy!!! Then I read this knew I just didn’t have to ask

QUOTE

In the next moment he stormed her mouth with a kiss of such intensity that Cordelia only shuddered beneath him in response. Pulling up slightly, Angel met her gaze noting with satisfaction that lustful surprise had replaced the look of horror at what she had done. A smear of syrup now covered her chin; Angel lapped it up with a sweep of his cool tongue.

Briliant and superlative and everythign else between Hun.

Luv, Helen


BECJANE:

Yay – you posted!

QUOTE

“Are you going to get to the point of your visit or are you simply demonstrating the latest pacing technique?” Giles asked him as Angel followed an invisible trail back and forth in front of the desk.

“I’m upset,” growled Angel with an economy of words.

Loved this bit.

QUOTE

Angel realized suddenly, that he had been talking to Giles all along. The red flush across the Watcher’s cheeks suggested he had not been sparing of the details.

Could just imagine the look on Giles’s face!

Glad that Cordy is now starting to accept the new Angel. That he went to the High School just to get a willing kiss was really sweet!

So when are you going to post the next part?

Becky


CALIFI:

Is she melting??? – Can you blame her?! Poor thing; going through the process of grief isn’t that cut and dried- I can feel both their pain. I can understand what she’s going through, but am still amazed at her self control, and poor Angel *sigh* he is being so patient- for a Vampire that is amazing in itself!

The pace of this budding relationship is wonderful, Lysa, and can see Cordy folding verry soon [or Angel thinking ‘f*** it’ and going for it- maybe it will be the catalyst to wounds healing.

I just can’t wait for more- love this Angel sooo much *wibble*
Calixx


DAMNSKIPPY:

Oooo, things are getting heated in horny town. I can’t believe Angel actually gave Giles the details of their…ahem…almost mating. I’m also surprised Giles didn’t stop him.

I guess Cordy’s willpower is breaking down to his charms even if her mind won’t give up. Which is probably a good thing considering this:

QUOTE

Now the vampire stood before him with gold rimming his dark brown eyes. “I won’t let it happen again, Rup.”

The words came out as a vow, but the Watcher remained confused. What wouldn’t Angel let happen again? “The food fight or Cordelia biting you?”

“Letting her go,” Angel clarified starkly.

Methinks she’d better not get into that situation again or it’s all over but the crying. That is, as long as she doesn’t *want* to be claimed. You think she might cave soon?

Man, that one kiss at the end was soooooo hot, girlfriend. It’s amazing how you can build up the sexual tension so much that one little “sweetheart” and one kiss can seem like a two-hour porno. Damn!

Want more soon!!


MANDERS-21

Cordelia’s continued behavior is so spot on, she’s not about to “just come around.” But I think Angel’s finally getting through to her the only way he can, reverse psychology, its a wonderful thing!
Now that she’s not getting his affection she yurns for it. Lysa, your doing an outstanding job with her transition, its spot on her character. Cordelia’s emotional distance and open distain was great and I loved the part of the story, but am now so happy that she’s finally starting to warm up to him. I can’t wait until she’s completely in love again.

QUOTE

“You left today without something that belongs to you,” he told her.
Raising a hand to her throat, Cordelia felt cool metal of her golden choker. It was the only thing she could think of that Angel could be talking about.
Angel noted the direction of her thoughts, but continued by saying, “I wanted you to have it if you still want it.”
The fingers caressing her face curled to allow his thumb to brush along her lower lip hinting at the direction of his conversation. With a slow dawning, Cordelia realized he was referring to her missed morning kiss and then her heart was bounding in response. “You came here to kiss me?”
“That depends on whether you want it, sweetheart.” Angels stood close, but not quite touching as he moved his hand to the wall behind her. God knows he wanted it more than he should. Enough to come after her.
Cordelia knew she should be saying no. How hard could it be? No. No. No. Piece of cake. Easy as pie. Sticky as syrup.
She lifted a hand between them, planning to push at his chest, but found her hand curling into the lapel of his coat instead. Gazing up into those questing eyes, Cordelia whispered, “Good morning, Angel.”
“Sweetheart,” Angel covered her mouth with his kiss as he pulled her close into his arms. Neither one cared that it was no longer morning.

Just perfect! What more can I say?

I loved that part, but..HOW! HOW can you leave it there????

The whole pancake syrup part was yummy! If only…………………..

Hurry up and write!!!


NAIRI:

WOW Lysa, this fic only gets better and better with every new chapter. I loved it from the begining to the end, it was perfect. The ending was so sweet, Angel coming to school in the middle of the day to kiss her goodmoring and Cordy accepting it was so romantic. I catn´t wait to read more, please post again soon.
Nairi


ATHLANTIS:

I feel so bad for Cordy, been guilty for thinking she’s betraying Angelus, porr Cordy!!! sniff sniff
Maybe she should explain ‘Angel’ the situation so he could understand why she is having such change of moods

Amazing and wondeful chapter!!!looking forward to read the next one.

MARIE:

This story just keeps getting better and better.

I loved all of it, there are just too many great parts to quote.

I must have just crawled out from beneath some Wal*Mart shoppers, because how the hell did I miss this? Where have I been? Poor Giles! Their conversation was riviting. Giles was embarrased but still managed to just hang on to his objectivity and I loved the way he championed Cordy, trying to see both sides. LOL. But I adore your smushed Angel! I keep getting Will Smith moments with him. Him pointing at Angel/Angelus and saying “old and busted” and then pointing at himself saying “new hotness”! Sorry…I need tea….

ROTFLOL! Hesperus, hun. Glad you crawled out from beneath those Wal-Mart shoppers. They must have kick-started your funnybone.

And thanks to everybody for their feedback. I promise that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. This fic does have an end to it and it’s coming soon.


TIPDIP:

Hi Lysa!
I ditto everyone else. I’m liking this new Angel a lot! The kiss at the end was so sweet. Hopefully Cordy will cave, and then more stuff will happen soon!

Post soon! Can’t wait for the next chapter!
Hugs!

STARAICE:

Hi,
I almost didn’t read this because I forgot which part we were up to, glad I opened it though.
This is cool. I am glad that it is going to end- but also a little sad

NOBODY’S ANGEL:

This fic has just been awesome! You keep taking twists that I never predict and I LOVE it!! I can’t wait to read what you’ve got planned for us next!!


SUSI:

Hi Lysa,
I’m so thrilled that I’ve found your fics. A friend of mine mentioned your work and said if I’d like A/C stories I should definitely read your fics. I started with ‘Double or Nothing’ and it’s a mega thrilling epos. I’m sooooo loving this fic and read currently your others. Hopefully you’ll write more soon, I can’t wait to see with what your muse’ll come up next. Thumbs up, your A/C stories are one of the best I ever read so far.

I have a little request. Would you please give me your permission to post your lovely work at my site ‘Soulmates’? It has only a little section of A/other stories but I hope it will grow with time. I’d really feel honored.

Hope to hear from you .o))

hugs,
~Susi~

webmistress of ‘Soulmates’


ANGELICLADYD:

Lysa! OMG! Can I just say that you are one of the BEST Angelverse writers I have ever read! Since sending you that e-mail, I’ve been sitting at my computer READING your story and loving every minute of it. I LOVE C/Angelus fics and you….oh, wow, you nail it. Suck me right it. Right now I don’t know who I want to end up with Cordy more. Angelus or Angel. It’s just sooooo good. I don’t think I can stop. I’m only on 28….and I just CAN’T put it down. I’ll send you another report when I get done. LoL. Thanks so much for the chapters. Honestly, it’s the best. Salty goodness!

SUNSCORCHED:

PART 42

Posted by: Sunscorched Dec 11 2003, 07:54 AM

Sorry about not hessing FB to you via PM hon and to make up for that, I’m gonna sing your praises at the top of my lungs!

Where do I start with the quoting? Simple, I don’t cus otherwise the whole part will be repeated. When I first issued this challenge to you months ago, never in my life would I have expected a fic with so much substance, dialogue and fantastic characterisations.

Many people will agree wholly with the fact that this fic should win a God damn award and know that I’ll be nominating you for Best Author in the next C/A fic awards.

This part, like all others, was brilliant and with an exceptionally hot fall-out from Angel’s good morning kiss. I liked how Willow got worried when her parents were mentioned and I liked how she immediately jumped to the conclusion that Cordy would be bunking off school to go have some lurve!

Also it’s good that Willow is still referring to the vamp as Angelus, poor little mite really took a shine to the soulless one didn’t she? Oh the memories she must have of playing minion!!!

QUOTE

“Geez, this place is a mess,” Cordelia noticed soda cans, used plates and magazines scattered across the room. Puzzled, she realized that this was the first time she’d ever seen the mansion looking less than immaculate with the exceptions of vampire wrestling and Fate summoning aftereffects.

Angel suppressed a smile. Took you long enough to notice. “It’s your mess.”

I know I said no quoting but I can’t help it! Looks like it’s wake-up time for SlobCordy and good on Angel for not clearing up after her and for using the term Slob! Very funny and I can just see his smug expression.

QUOTE
not that she’d noticed the firmness of any of his body parts. Nope.

Of course you didn’t notice the firmness of his body parts, send me a postcard of the Pyramids while you’re swimming will you?

QUOTE
Cutting short her response, as if knowing the words she was about to speak, Angel pressed his thumb over her parting lips removing it only when he’d had his say. “Let me into that caged heart of yours, Cordelia. Just a little, baby. Enough for me to feel something that means you might give a damn.”

Aww, poor Angel. Cordy you gotta show him you care or else he’ll walk away and then where will you be? You’ll be without manpire that’s where you’ll be.

QUOTE
“You don’t want them as they were, Cordelia. You want the middle ground between the demon’s darkness and the light of the soul. The essence of them both,” stressed Angel as his hand crept up to her neck, his thumb stroking softly near the raw flesh of his mark. “That’s what the Moirae have given you, Cordelia. What I give you.”

Cordelia’s chest ached with too much feeling. Pinpricks of unshed tears glistened in her eyes.

“Sweetheart, in my eyes and the eyes of the world, you are now my mate,” Angel’s voice carried the depths of his own emotions. “You own my heart if you will have it.”

Take it damn you, take it!!!

You had no reason to think your smut was rusty at all, it brought a grin to my mush that’s for sure!!

I’m decided that your Angel is Cordy’s perfect match, he won’t let her get away with walking all over him nor will he let her hide from herself. He’s everything she ever wanted in both Angel and Angelus, but maybe that’s the problem. He’s too perfect where before he had some faults and that could be a subconscious reason for Cordy keeping herself from opening up to Angel.

It’s astounding just how much you can put into one part, here’s you writing your ass off with 20+ pages and I can only do 5 average, I am in awe of you. After this, I suggest you go relax and have some hot coffee preferably with an Irish lilt and just watch the FB roll in!!

Again, kudos on a wonderfully written part and take a few days to recover from the obvious hard work you’ve been putting in. The next installment will no doubt be well worth however long we have to wait…

Just as long as it’s posted sooner rather than later!!


CALIFI:

AT LAST! He did it!!!! so cool the way you worked that chapter, hun I was waiting for something like that to happen, and hav to say, Cordy held out a hell of a lot longer than I would have been able to!

His words at the end were so spot on- she DID get what she wanted in him, even though at the moment she feels loss. A/Aus in one, with a smattering of Liam [wonder what he brings in the mix???]

Truly brilliant chapter, Lysa – thank you so much for posting

Sachxx


DAMNSKIPPY:

I will second that nomination as best author that Scorchy mentioned. The patience you have with these characters is amazing. The tiniest of nuances don’t get past you. It’s freakin’ weird.

Lordy, that was some of the hottest smut I’ve ever read. Especially this part:

QUOTE

“Don’t stop,” his voiced sounded its deep timbre as she paused under the weight of his gaze. Angel simply moved to pull her panties away, tempted to simply rip them from her, but he’d been patient this long. Cordelia maneuvered her hips and legs accordingly all the while holding her hand in place as she touched her lust-swollen clitoris.

Then his fingers joined hers in exploring her silken folds and his mouth eagerly came down for a taste. Cordelia felt his flat tongue brush over her sex and her sticky fingers before moving back to plunge deeply into her core. She bucked against his fingers as they delved inside sliding back and forth stimulating and searching in unerring fashion for the slight rise of inner flesh that marked her g-spot.

The triple stimulation of their combined fingers and his tongue had Cordelia all but chanting his name and begging him to fuck her brains out. She wasn’t quite that desperate. Not quite. Not yet.

Oh, yeah. It is so hot watching!! And then having him join her fingers with his mouth…damn!

Guess they don’t have to worry about not being affectionate enough in front of the parents. At least I hope not. Surely what Angel said at the end will sink in. Won’t it? Hell, now I don’t know what you’re going to do. I hate waiting!!


MARIE:

Brilliant,

I echo what everyone else has said. There are too many great parts for me to quote them all

This keeps getting better and better.

Waiting for more please
Marie


HELEN:

Lysa

I saw this and had to print it off (damn work and a no surfing policy- hee hee) and enjoy it with a cuppa and my feet up when I got home.

Only problem with that is everyone says what you want to say. What can I say- delicious as ever. There isn’t a single line of this fic that’s rusty or anything other than brilliant!

I adored the way you wrote everyone but especially Cordy and Angel/us. Loved how they fought and then came together in that blindingly hot smutty way. I could feel her nervousness walking into the basement and my heart was tripping I tell you!

QUOTE
Angel grabbed onto the punching bag stopping its rebounding sway as he caught the sound of Cordelia’s approach. The soft footfalls were accompanied by the rapid rate of her heart, nervous heaving breaths and a hint of honeyed arousal in the air.

“Go back upstairs,” Angel snarled at her without bothering to turn around.

Stepping closer onto the thick blue mat at his feet, Cordelia watched him rest his forehead against the black leather surface. Impatience filled his voice, irritation at her presence here in his personal territory. Even with Angelus, she’d rarely come down to watch him workout since he always claimed it distracted him— in a good way.

That just had me quivering but in a good way too . I love Angel when he’s training all hot and sweaty and … I better shut up now before I need to jump a guy with dark hair, brown eyes -handsome and built like a …. .

QUOTE
Challenging darkly, “Is that what’s really bothering you, baby? That you never had a chance to finish what you started with Angel? Too bad Willow’s pink potion knocked you out or you might have had a chance to fuck them both.”

Flying across the mat with claws unfurled, Cordelia launched herself at the vampire knocking him against the wall. She got in one good scrape of her nails along his right shoulder before he grasped her waist, lifted her and spun her around so that Cordelia was the one pinned there. “Bastard!”

“Was that harsh?” Angel leaned close enough to feel every inch of her luscious frame mold into his own, her body pliant where her mind was not. “Or was I just too close to the truth?”

WOO HOO HOO, brilliant Babe boy I would LOVE them to show this kind of creativity on the show, the dialogue and everything is just sublime!!! I LOVE YOUR ANGEL!!

I everyone else, this fic has awards all over it – every scrumtious part of it!

Love’n’hugs Helen (wandering off in a daze)


BECJANE:

That was a brilliant part Lysa – I’m in awe of your talent

Want to quote it all but I’ll settle for this:

QUOTE

“Watch out,” her glaring warning came with a reminder, “I bite.”

That vibrating rumble sounded in his chest stimulating her already aching nipples as they pressed up against him. Angel’s mouth curled into that trademark smirk, “So do I.”

Made me laugh

and this:

QUOTE

Comprehension slowly settled in as she started to realize what he was getting at. It wasn’t until the Moirae started messing around with Angelus and Angel— until their personalities began to change— that her own feelings for them deepened into love.

“You don’t want them as they were, Cordelia. You want the middle ground between the demon’s darkness and the light of the soul. The essence of them both,” stressed Angel as his hand crept up to her neck, his thumb stroking softly near the raw flesh of his mark. “That’s what the Moirae have given you, Cordelia. What I give you.”

Cordelia’s chest ached with too much feeling. Pinpricks of unshed tears glistened in her eyes.

“Sweetheart, in my eyes and the eyes of the world, you are now my mate,” Angel’s voice carried the depths of his own emotions. “You own my heart if you will have it.”

Perfect end – hope Cordy finally realises that she hasn’t lost anything.

So, when’s the next part up?

Becky


NAIRI:

Lysa an amazing chapter, worth the wait. I loved it from the begining to the end.

QUOTE

“Sweetheart, in my eyes and the eyes of the world, you are now my mate,” Angel’s voice carried the depths of his own emotions. “You own my heart if you will have it.”

This part was brilliant, you captured Angels true feelings in just few lines, it spoke of love, loyalty and acceptens.
I can´t wait to read more, please post again soon.

KIMMERS:

Lysa,
As always this is Brillant and the smut girl the smut you are going for the smut Queen crown aren’t you love the after affects of the kiss the way you had angel baiting her about her parents and everything else ahh can’t wait for more please write more soon please
from Kimmers


STAIRACE:

Why am I almost in tears? I don’t think I should be, but the ending was so emotional. This Rocked!!!
I have to go now but wow.


CHRISTY:

Holy Hell! Lysa, you blow me away with each and every chapter.

*That* was the hot, steamy sex I’ve been waiting for

Angel is *so* damn sexy. I believe he will mend her broken heart; oh yes, he *will*.

QUOTE

“You own my heart if you will have it.”

I love that! **sigh**

I don’t EVER want this story to end. Write 200 chapters if you will! I will read and swoon over every single one of em.

Please, for god’s sake, post soon!


KATRINA:

*sigh* Lysa that was wonderful, I don’t think I can come up with enough words to tell you how much I enjoyed that, but I’ll try.

QUOTE

A wave of heat suffused her chest as Cordelia recognized his intent. Her thoughts ran wild at the possibilities. Good going, Cor. Don’t just issue an open invitation to a vampire. Double-dog-dare him while you’re at it.

Lol, loved Cordy through this whole part, her realisations, her attempts to be non-paticipatory, her anger, it was all brilliantly captured.

QUOTE

“You don’t want them as they were, Cordelia. You want the middle ground between the demon’s darkness and the light of the soul.

“Sweetheart, in my eyes and the eyes of the world, you are now my mate,” Angel’s voice carried the depths of his own emotions. “You own my heart if you will have it.”

Angel is just brilliant, and I agree he is her perfect match. His humour, his love, his not putting up with her crap, it’s all exactly what she needs, and he is right, he is the middle ground.

I love how vulnerable he has allowed himself to be to her, I hope that she’s able to take and treasure his heart and finally be happy.

Tremendous part, I just loved it all to bits. Thanks Lysa.

Hugs

Kat.


GILLY:

Oh Lysa that was brilliant, I love it when he takes charge and doesn’t let her faze him.

And ‘hot’ smut wowzaa, yummm

I agree with the others you should get an award for this, the whole fic has been wonderful, and I’m sure, one that will be kept in peoples archives and read and reread over the years.

More soon please

This whole fic has been phenomenal. I’m hoping Cordy accepts Angel and doesn’t reject him again. I can’t wait for the next part.


LEX:

I’ll second that phenomenal- I was so excited to see the next part of this story. Cordelia is finally coming out of her fog of denial. Can’t wait to see where you take this next!


SCOOBYSNAX:

WHY WONT SHE LOVE HIM!?!?!


HELEN:

Lysa

I love this incredible fic of yours, beautifully written and hot as hell!!

See ya later, Helen


IZZYCHASE:

*wipes steam from computer*

Wow, Lysa, good chapter. Liked the interesting take, but am still missing the Angelus of old. I hope Cordy comes around in the next chapter and realizes that she’s having both of them.

Iz.


SCOOBYSNAX:

Good Lord. I made my comment halfway through — I had to leave to go to work. But it was amazing. God, the ending was perfect. Lysa, standing ovation!!


TRICIA:

I am absolutely loving this fic…..it is by far the best one I have read and I have read a lot of them. You definitely have me wanting to read more of this!!


LIZZY:

Take it Cordy! Take his heart!

Another excellent chapter, Lysa. Damn, you’re good.


FRAZI:

YES YES YES YES YES!!!! *does the happy dance around Lysa* YOU sweet gorgeous thing you!!!!! Have I told you recently how amazing you are at this 😛 Well I’m gona tell ya anyway! Lysa! I hope you NEVER Finish this……er okay living in constant curiosity is not good for me either so *ahem* Shutting up now. Brilliant and poignant. JUst…. *stupid lil smile on her face* Wow.


ANGELICLADYD:

YES! YES SHE BETTER HAVE IT!!! What a read! What a read! I couldn’t put it down chica. I’m burning for more. Just so delicious. The perfect blend of drama, humor, romance and smut. You had me on my toes the entire time. I loved C/Aus. I just love Angelus period. But their rompings, and his posessiveness just was like “Woah, doggy!” Anyway, what are you waiting for? Write more. LoL.


NINA BLU:

This is an incredible story. I read the entire thing in one sitting and it simply blew me away. How can Cordy not want him? All that swagger and brooding rolled up into one man. (shivers) Hell, if she doesn’t want him, I’ll take him.

I always find time for reading fanfic when I’m procrastinating. Stupid Christmas shopping. I wish other writers (cough, Whedon, cough) had half the talent you do. Each moment felt real to me, as if I were watching on screen. I could so picture CC or DB acting out these scenes. Especially the love scenes. Now, I’m off to read your other stories. Why grade papers when I can sink my teeth into another Lysa original?

Keep up the good work!


WITCHCAT:

PART 43

“It’s time to rattle your cage a little,” he told her while leading her down the second floor corridor.

Oh, yes, let’s rattle!

Happy holidays to us! I’m so glad you posted this chapter, it’s just the present I was hoping for this holiday, and well worth the wait. Mmmnn…not quite the amount of smut I was asking Santa for, but I’m betting the next chapter will solve that. Besides, your angle on character development is amazing and well worth the read.
Thanks for this wonderfully written fic! Wishing you and your muse a happy and prosperous New Year!


LEX:

I was so excited to see this fic updated. As usual, you did a wonderful job and I loved the ending! Can’t wait to see what Angel has in store for Cordelia. Happy New Year!


ANGELICLADYD:

YEAH!!!! An update! Hell, I can’t wait for the “surprise” either. Can I just saw RAWR! Because your Angel is too hot to trot. The best of both worlds I think. Hell, if she doesn’t want him, he can claim me. I’m in need of a little energizing myself, he can be my bunny! Ok, getting my mind off the smut train that you always leave me in. Whew! Can’t wait for more!


HELEN:

Lysa

Read this over at AO babe, seriously wonderful as always, but short for you so don’t think we’ll let up on the stalkin’ babe , we need more of this!

Anst and heated possesiveness all in one part, I just adore your new Angel gets me every time I read a line. Lord knows how Cordy resists him cos I’d just be a begging puddle.

Helen


CALIFI:

I’m up for some rattling, Lysa

So many emotions in one part, and you really feel them. Just love this fic so much, and glad it’s still going strong.

Keep it coming, hun

Sachxwubs


FRAZI:

Oh my god I just read this! Gorgeous Lysa. What I wouldn’t give to be you right now 😛 hehe.


ANGELIA:

What a rollercoaster of emotions in this chapter. I can only imagine how Cordy must feel. I’m so happy that this story is still going strong. The last part I had read before playing catch-up today was the one that ended with Cordelia asking “W-Who are you?”. I thought she’d accept this new Angel right away and I was so sad that the story would probably be ending soon after. Boy was I glad I was wrong about that. Although now that I’ve said that I’ve probably just jinxed the whole thing, huh? You sure know how to keep us on our toes Lysa. I really like where you’ve taken this. Cordy has never been one to take love lightly so I can totally see why it’s so hard for her to just accept it and move on even though technically he’s still Angelus/Angel. Hopefully this chapter is just the beginning to her realization that she can have the best of both worlds, that maybe the Moirae have given her a gift even though it might not feel like it at the moment. Plus it’s always nice to watch Angel have to work for it a little. Thanks so much for sharing this with us Lysa. Looking forward to more from you. Hope you have a great New Year.


SHAR:

hi just want to say this is an excellent story i completely understand cordys heisitation over accepting new angel cause great and all as he is i still kinda miss angelus.i love the way youve written this story and cant wait to see how its resolved.


SCOOBYSNAX:

Wonderful.


CAMARTIN:

Wow


RUBY:

More!


DAMNSKIPPY:

Man, she not only floats on that denial river, she *owns* it. Every sweeping curve and every inch of it’s hidden depths. And add onto that every brick of the Acme Brick Company that she uses for that mile thick wall around her heart.

You’ve got me curious as hell to know what the key will be to breaking down all those barriers. What will Angel do that will shatter it all? Will he really treat her like a mistress and only take her when he feels like it and force her if she doesn’t?

You’ve upped the stakes again just when I think it’s just not possible. Sneaky.


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
this was good great as always a brillant fic and the way he got her to his way of thinking and the use of Cocky angel was a bruillant idea
from Kimmers


SUNSCORCHED:

I was so happy when you posted this Lysa, and I really apologise for being able to PM you back quicker.

Don’t know why Angel just doesn’t take the easy route to her heart and spring her a voucher for a year’s supply of ice cream

This is just a fly-by for now, will come back to edit my FB once my net sorts itself out, it’s doing all kindsa wacky things on me at the mo.

Loved it as usual, you’re a born and bred genius!!!


IMPRESS:

as usual you have done a wonderful job. can’t wait to see what happens next.


MANDERS-21

Lysa this is an Epic, I should have figured that out by now by just the magnitude of it’s length, but this is beyond merely a fic.

Wow, talk about heated and sexual. There was no action persay but damn I came away from that at the end needing a fag out on my porch. I’m going to be so sad when this finally comes to an end, but am so excited to see how it all works out. Can’t wait for more. You’re a god and I bow down!

Amanda


CALIFI:

can I say wow!

So many emotions, and I can feel Cordy’s conflictions almost physically. I must say, I don’t think I’d like to be her right now, because that underlying feeling of guilt/betrayal must be eating her from the inside.

That last scene where he takes her to Angle’s sanctuary was a rattler, and his promise of the demon within sent shivers down my spine, and curiosity to my brain.

QUOTE

“Let’s see how you like being a vampire’s mistress,” Angel suggested while reaching around to cup her bottom with both hands, “since you refuse to be my mate.”

“Don’t make it sound so sordid.” Cordelia glared back, squirming against him until he let her go.

“That’s what you’ve made it, baby,”

What’s the diff? Can’t wait to see what that entails – will I like it??
Big mwahs for posting, hun (:


HELEN:

Wowser Lysa

and just in case and cos I need to sayit wowowowoowowowowowowowowowoow WHoo HOO baby, that was hot- damn short for you but HOT!!!!

I loved so much but can’t seem to keep it straight but this part just sums it up:

QUOTE

“You’ll always be mine, Cordelia,” his words came out as an oath singeing across her flesh as invisible flames of truth. She swore the mark on her throat throbbed with a responsive need that underscored his claim. “Willing or not. In love or hate. Standing freely by my side or bound there. One way or the other. I’ll never give you up, baby. Never.”

OH WOW again, I’m squigglign with excitement here babe! Sheesh, I can hardly type, hmmm possessive Angel to a frickin ‘T’.

You are such a wonderful writer and this fic is excellent!!!

BFHugs, Helen


BECJANE:

That was brilliant as usual! Cordy’s seriously in denial, isn’t she?

QUOTE

“Surprise me,” Cordelia quipped hoping that Angel paid no attention to the telltale tempo of her heart.

Can’t believe you ended it there *sulk*

Anyway – hope you have time to write another part very soon.

Becky


NAIRI:

WOW Lysa! This was amazing. Very emotional and hot. I agree with everyone Cordy needs to get herself together and get out of that river, the one called denial. Loved this side of Angel, he is being possessive and all demony .
I can´t wait to read more, please post again soon.
Nairi


GILLY:

Great part Lysa. Angel is really gonna have to try hard to win her over.

I’m sure that will involve lots of lovin’

Looking forward to the next part.


CHRISTY:

Hot damn, Lysa!

We all know Cordelia is stubborn, but damn

QUOTE

“I’m not Santa Claus or the Energizer Bunny, baby,” his mouth twisted into a smirk. “Though I promise you I can keep going and going and going if that’s what it takes to convince you.”

Keep going, bad boy. Keep going!

QUOTE

“What will it be, baby? Sweet and vanilla— or something more in tune with the demon you’re determined to know?”

QUOTE

“Surprise me,” Cordelia quipped hoping that Angel paid no attention to the telltale tempo of her heart.

Game On!
This epic adventure you have given us is superb. Every chapter is amazing. So many twists and turns and adventures. So many different feelings. Love it!

Continue on please

This keeps on getting better and better.

ANGELICLADYD:

Lysa where are you?

Hey,
I noticed that I haven’t heard from one of my fav fic writers in a while and her brillant story Double or Nothing. Come on girl you have to post more I’m suffering from serious withdrawal over here.


LYSA:

Posted by Lysa on 01-30-2004 05:38 AM:

Hi There!

Guess I’ve been out of touch for a while. Lots of RL stuff messing up my writing schedule. My muse likes to take vacations when I don’t keep up with the writing every day. So the going has been… slow.

I’m about 10 pages into a 2-part finale for Double or Nothing. Hopefully, my muse will be back this weekend & I’ll make some more progress. I do promise you that there is an end for DoN & I won’t drop the ball until it’s finished.

Thanks for asking!

~Lysa~


ANGELICLADYD:

Good to hear! I LOVE, LOVE Double or Nothing Lysa. I still read my favorite parts during the week whenever I need a pick me up. I love your Angel/Angelus characterazations. I’m interested in seeing how your brilliant little minds wraps this story all up. Right now, I’m just like “Ahh! Cordy, love him.” LoL.


LEX:

Just wanted too chime in and say that I am also addicted to DoN. So, take your time Lysa, I’m sure it will be excellent when we get to read it.


SCOOBYSNAX:

God, that was so good. It almost brought tears to my eyes.

quote:

a giant sucking sound was heard from the end of the row as Rupert Giles rounded the corner in search of a book on historic Sunnydale. He’d needed it for some research they were conducting tonight. Only— he clasped his chest at the shocking sight of Angel holding Cordelia’s naked breasts— it appeared there were other things going on in his library besides research.

Before Giles could do more than blink, Cordelia was safely hidden away behind the vampire’s muscular frame. “Crap! All that and we get caught when it’s over. Damn nosey Watcher.” Muttering, her curses were only whispers, but were as clear as a bell to both men.

too funny! post more soon!


JUJUBE1013:

good chapter, poor giles!


HELEN:

Encore Encore!!

Lysa Babes

You already know how much I adore this fic, but so what I’ll tell you again. I adore this fic! Its got it all in double doses- romance, intrigue, angst and passion written with a flair that makes your breath catch!

Keep it coming babe or else lol!

Helen

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! You….you mean mean mean muse! How can you do that! i spent the entire chapter with my tongue hanging in glee waiting for her to say teh words and….ARGH!!!!!! *hair grabbing screams*
.

Ahem….okay i’m calm now. Of course my mother thinks I’ve lost my mind. She could probably hear the chants of ‘tell him you love him you idiot, tell him you love him’ all the way downstairs in the living room.

But can I just say……HOT!!!! Besides my obvious frustration at the lack of words I was drooling like an idiot through the entire read! Beautiful and poignant! Loved every word every syllable. Just hurry with the rest! Pweeeze?


LEX:

Another great chapter! I loved the mix of humor and drama.


ANGELICLADYD:

Loved every single letter! Perfect blend of angst and sex. Just my cup of tea! Thanks for the read. Didn’t think I could wait too much longer


KELLY22

I’m so glad to see you posted more of this…I’m hopelessly addicted to this fic. You strike a beautiful balance between light and dark, and as always, the smut was extra yummy.

Can’t wait to read more


SUNSCORCHED:

Never, ever again am I reading this part while drinking Typhoo and smoking. I’ve just had the worst spluttering experience of my 24 years of life!!

Yet again, you should be commended on a wonderful part that was nice, hot and so very hilarious. Still trying to get over the bit in the library, all I can see in my head is Giles’ expression at seeing Cordy’s breasts!!

Oh God, what wouldn’t I pay to see that scene on the show. Too, too funny If only Buffy had gone up there too, WW3 woulda kicked off pretty sharpish but how much fun would it have been for us?!!

Anyhoo, the interraction between Angel and Cordy was good, notice how she’s still in denial about her feelings for him despite how she reacts to him.

QUOTE

Her hand lifted to his face as her voice sounded out a breathy whisper only he could possibly hear, “Angel, I think I—”

Was she gonna say it, huh? Was she? Damn Giles and his bad timing, you’d think that being a watcher would have at least given him some sense of time keeping!

Okay, now he’s bitten her and she’s bitten him, does that mean anything? Something tells me that Fates aren’t quite done with Angel just yet and I can’t wait for another part.

Take your time Lysa, I can wait forever for this fic


HELEN:

Lysa Hun, seriously what was that about a missing muse again, kiss him or her hello for me will you

I’m speechless which is pretty distressing since I need to get out how much I loved this part. Every single bloody line of it. Right from the getgo with HOT DAMN the wickedly wonderfully naughty sex in the library.

QUOTE

The soft plea was followed by a much louder cry as Cordelia reacted to the resuming rhythm as Angel’s shallow thrusts deepened. Sounds of friendly laughter and familiar debating voices filled her ears as she buried her head against Angel’s shoulder and rocked her hips against him. Her body tingled with a strange excitement at the idea of Angel making her come within hearing distance of Buffy Summers.

Yes its offical I’m sick cos baby I just loved that too

I just love how playful they were and how demanding Angel was, an attitude loved by our confident and sexy Cordy, wow what I wouldn’t do to be able to revel in some of that, what a couple!!

Then of course the concern over the dream and excuse me while I while I curl up my hanging tongue and unscramble me brains- that HOT HOT HOT sexy description of their wild all-nighter . Reading it made me realize how much I’ve missed dominant Angel. With you its works so well simply because Cordy is so strong too and its nice to reminded that dominant doesn’t mean bad- so huge big smoochey thanks for that babe!

QUOTE

No matter that Angel’s actions verged on domination, he remained focused on pleasuring her, eking out every response her body could handle. Until then, Cordelia had never realized the extent to which Angelus had reigned in his sexual drive— or how much her manpire had been fettered by the mystical restraints of the Moirae.

Speechless again. I need to reread this now so excuse me

Please say you’ll post more soon, I know your busy and all but ….. will begging do??

Hugs and kisses, Hely


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Guess that the stalking worked hey cause guess what we have more from you that is so good.
Let me just say wow wow and more wow.
Lysa i loved this and it was well worth the wait especially the library scene
from Kimmers


HELEN:

Lysa Darlin’

We know you have more of this wonderful fic ready to post, rumours abound ! So get posting already!!!!

Pretty please- will I did warn you about the begging yeah?

Helen


DAMNSKIPPY:

I don’t think I would have survived two chapters. I’m already puddled on the floor as it is.

As everyone said, the library sex was hot as hell. I thought I’d faint when he asked to be bitten.

QUOTE

Angel captured her mouth with a fiery kiss sensing his own body spiraling to its own climax. Breathing hard simply because his body reacted instinctively to do so, he growled softy, “Bite me, Cordelia. Bite me when you come.”

Whew!
But I think it was this silly moment that truly sent me over the top.

QUOTE

Leaning down, Angel touched the tip of his nose to hers rubbing gently in the form of an Eskimo kiss. Cordelia clamped her eyes even tighter, knowing he liked her hot hazel gaze on him. That soft, silly caress continued until laughter started to bubble up inside her. Eyes still closed, she mumbled, “Stop that.”

“Make me,” Angel now alternated Eskimo kisses with soft smooches on the tip of her nose.

Summoning up a spark of energy, Cordelia pounced at the first opportunity, finding his mouth with her own. Kissing him with a hunger that left her breathless again, she noted the warmth of his lips— heat borrowed from her now returning in the form of hot, melting kisses.

That was just so not what I expected. You made me feel like Cordy must feel when he brings her to the brink and then changes tactics on her. Just brilliant!

Thanks for not making us wait. You can take a day of rest now. This chapter will keep me busy for some time.


MANDERS-21

Lysa, magnificent as usual.

The library scene was great, the exhilaration of doing it in the presence of others, especially Buffy, well all are ignorant of your activities had to have heightened the experience that much more.

Cordelia’s denial is legendary, and i think its hurting Angel so much more than she knows or he is letting on.

QUOTE

Leaning in, Angel kissed away the tears tasting their salty bitterness and feeling the harsh twist of regret pulling at his insides. Amongst the soft moans and lusty cries of passion never once had she uttered any feelings except desire.
So he kept his own feelings shut down tight, showing her, but never once saying the words that bloomed in his heart each time he looked her way. At least not while she was awake to hear them.
“I love you,” he whispered into her chestnut tresses simultaneously drinking in her scent and wrapping his arms around her.

This had me feeling so much for him, the tide has changed – you know that’s whats so awesome about this epic fic Lysa, earlier on I was feeling the exact same thing for Cordelia and then you spin it around on us and know Im feeling for Angel.

Loved it, can’t wait for the last part, it is going to be the last one right?

Amanda


CALIFI:

Couldn’t your heart just twist into knots at the pair of them *sigh* I can feel Cordy’s confusion and pain- and can totally understand her addiction to Angel; wondering when she’ll realise it IS more….and angel, trying so hard to imprint his love into her body and soul, awwwe!

Amazingly hot smut as usual, Lysa; tenderness, raw passion and hot humor- yum!

So sad that this will soon end- but it will be worth it when she finally realizes and admits her feelings.


NAIRI:

Lysa this was brilliant, worth the long wait, i loved it. The library scene was so hot and like everyone else i think i am going to be stuck with Giles´s face for some time. The ending made me feel so sorry for Angel to love someone that much and not have them return it or to be able to say it outlaod must be hard. I can´t wait to read more, please post again soon.
Nairi


KATRINA:

Wow Lysa, that was so fantastic, just loved it.

I can just picture poor Giles, lmao. And protective Angel shielding her was so wonderful. I loved the way he encouraged her to bite him when she came and she did and tasted his blood, will this have any effects, can’t wait to read more.

I’m really starting to feel so sorry for Angel. The bit at the end where he told her he loved her when she was asleep, just broke my heart. I so want them to be able to be happy together. I like though that it’s coming along at a believable pace and when Cordy didn’t freak at the memory of the theatre and Angelus whilst in the Library with Angel, I gave a little chortle of glee, progress.

OK I’m off to re-read this now, it’s far too wonderful for a single reading. Loving every word, thank you so much Lysa.

Hugs

Kat


GILLY:

Great part Lysa, lovely hot smut, and Giles’ face I can just imagine it, especially when Angel bent down, wonderful image.

At last she is accepting the new Angel, much to his relief.

Looking forward to the next part.


ZANITA:

How do I say how talented you are 44 times?

I loved the library scene, it was perfect. And the ending scene? Heart wrenchingly beautifull.

Definately worth the wait, as I’m sure chapter 45 will be.


BECJANE:

Excellent as usual Lysa

I felt really sorry for Angel by the end. He loves her and she still refuses to let him into her heart

Can’t wait for the final part – even though I don’t want this fic to end!

That was breathtaking.

I am in denial that there will be only one more chapter left. Yes I am! Every chapter is amazing.

I say we throw you a party when you post the last chapter! You damn well deserve one; giving us over 40 chapters of blood, sweat, and tears.

Ok, I will stop now and continue my rave reviews of the whole epic later.

Thank you, doll. ::Mwah::

Love you too, Christy! MWAH! And all you Oaisians out there!
Now….time for my confession. *ahem* Remember when I said there was only gonna be “one more chapter”…?

Well…uh…um…I’ve kinda pulled a Cali on this one. Once I started writing, my ideas for the ending expanded just a bit. I’ve already written 30 pages worth of story and have at least 10 to go to finish things up.

So I’m breaking this up into additional chapters for sanity’s sake– the readers’ and mine. Chapters, 45 and 46 are done and waiting for me to get into gear & write the rest. I’m at an important transition section right before the finale that I have to figure out.

I was planning to post everything at once, but maybe I’ll just ask you guys….

Do you want 45 and 46 now or do you prefer to wait for a marathon reading session sometime in the next couple of weeks?

Lysa

P.S. As far as the party idea goes….hell yeah! Just start setting up the virtual margarita machine.


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Ok here goes, 45 now and then in a couple of days 46.
Cause otherwise we will do crazy things like i don’t know say stalking, or not writing more?
so this is my sleepy post telling you that even half asleep i would still keep my eyes open for your fic
from Kim


SPIKES SIRE:

okay… I love Cordy and I feel with her losing her mate but can I say what about this new Angel and all his emotions, he’s just lovable in his own kind of way. If Cordy doesn’t want the whole package I’ll take him gladly

Lysa, give your muse a big sloppy kiss from me. If you write such excellent parts without her I can’t imagine what you come up with when she/he returns *g*

~SpikesSire~


HELEN:

You have new parts and your holding off. Sob don’t do that!! Please post them, I’ll beg and it ain’t pretty!!!!

Hugs and smooches, Helen

Lysa please post the new parts, i need some DON fix and i need it now. Pleeeeeease


CHRISTY:

Lysa, my love. I’m going against what the others said. I will wait and wait. Simply because I want to treasure every single chapter. If you give us only one chapter at a time, there will be no arguments from me. Me being in denial has *nothing* to do with my wanting to wait. Nope.

*But*, since I am late reading, and chapter 44 has been posted for awhile now, you go ahead and post chapter 45. Like, now!


MARIE:

Wow, that thudding sound is my jaw hitting the floor. Just when I think you can’t possibly outdo your last chapter. wham, there you go.

What can I say that hasn’t already been said.

This is an amazing chapter. It was worth the wait.

Truly amazing.

Marie


MANDERS-21

I’m with the consensus, what the crap are you doing waiting for?!!!! Now, I tell you! I’d would say spread them out just so that when the time comes for you to post the last chapter, RL doesn’t take a big hit b/c no one can stay away from reading the humungous end.

Amanda


HELEN:

Never fear Manders babe
I stalked at ST too, Lysa your wanted (sing song voice) anyone reminded of those really annoying calls up the stairs when all u wanna do is sleep???

Sorry Lysa Hun

Love ya, Hely


ANNE:

Hi Lysa,
Double or nothing is really a great story!The Angel/Angelus/Cordy triangle was a rich idea,but probably very tricky to write and you handled it beautifully.
I must say it was quite a ride (in every sense of the word*g*) and I enjoyed every part of it! This fic is not finished yet,but we’re near the end and I wanted to thank you,so…

-Characterizations(You have everybody down pat!),fast pacing,imaginative and “twisted”(in a good way!*g*)plot,sharp dialogues:perfect.
One of your strength IMO is how ‘visual’ your writing is.I,reader,I was in every situation like an invisible witness of the action and it’s really an amazing thing only a good writer can manage and probably due to how ‘descriptive’ your writing is.(and for sex,it’s a must!lol!)
-Smut,humor,angst,feelings and action,this fic has everything I love in stories and,having read your other fics(love them!),I can’t stress enough how impress I am about your talent.I’m a fast reader and,often,I’m frustrated when the stories are too short,but this one,yeah,loooong and frequently updated(You must be exausted!)
I hope you’re going to give us other examples of your talent(a short,very short vacation if necessary and up to the good work!Lol!)

Thanks again!

Anne


IZZYCHASE:

PART 45

Hi, Lysa:

Haven’t left you a reply in a long time, but thanks for updating!

It was a great chapter! I loved how you wrote the C/A (butterflies in the stomach, anyone?), Buffy’s feelings, Xander’s lightheartedness, and Oz.

I also loved how Angel had the Chases eating out of his hand. That was sweet!
Iz.


HELEN:

Lysa

Wonderful part but then you already know how much I adore this fic. Angel are Cordy are such a bloomin adorable couple in this part and just gives anyone who reads about them the warm fuzzies. Plus In Law relations hmmm, always a tricky one but at least Angel knew how to *cough* assert himself!!!

Love it, please post more soon

Helen


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Girl, you already know how much i love this, after all otherwise i wouldn’t stalk you all the time.
The use of the mixture of scobbies and the inlaws, Cordy saying she wants to be the Vampire’s mate.
Girl this rocks and knowing that you pulled a Cal guess that’s ok
can’t wait for more
from Kim


ANGELICLADYD:

I LOVE THIS STORY!!!! This part was a total gem. *waves hand!* Angel! Angel! Look at what I’m wearing! *looks down at “Kiss The Love Slave” t-shirt* There is NO way that she can’t be head-over-heels in love with that boy. He not only can cook a mean Thanksgiving dinner, and know how to use his “turkey baster”, he had the ‘rents eating out of his hand. You know this can NEVER end, right?


LEX:

Yay, a new part! I loved the Thanksgiving dinner and Cordy finally telling Angel that she accepted him. I love this story and I can’t wait for the next part.


SCOOBYSNAX:

wonderful

Ooooh….weak kneed right there. Do I even have to SAY how gorgeous and SLOW 😛 the progress is to Cordelia telling our gorgeous manpire hunk that she is IN love with the dork? Heh. Beautiful sweety. You do me proud being the muse an all. More soon?


CALIFI:

I can only see good news when extra chapters are mentioned, Lysa .

As ever, perfectly written, and full of emotions of varying degrees. It’s time Cordelia realised that it takes more than physical attraction to make her feel so needy of him- me thinks she doth protest too much

Wonder if Angel is guessing that too? Torn between feeling sorry for Angel, annoyed with Cordy-yet-understanding-in-a-twisted-way [I mean, what a face and bod that vamp has, hooo!]

Mebbe he should grab her by the ankles, tip her up and shake her till her brain catches up with her body, heh!

Wonderful, gorgeous, and wanting more already, babes. mwah!

Sachxx


HELEN:

Hiya Lysa

Okay first of whats this about tormenting us with a another part then holding off huh!! (hand on hips). Now that’s finished YEE HAW!! Thanks for this babe it’s just what I need tonight and then some!

Now onto the meat; I loved every syllable of it. What are you *thinking* that there is anything wrong with your muse?? Its pure genius and that’s a fact. Poor Cordy with her parents over and the scoobs, and I loved Angel’s jealousy about Xander! Even after all the time and having got the girl!

QUOTE

“Jealous? “ Cordelia arched an eyebrow as she scrutinized him head to toe.

Angel’s voice sounded calm and steady as he responded, “No— just territorial.”

The perturbed side seemed to be winning her personal tug-of-war. “At least you have the nerve to admit it. Possessive much, Angel?”

“Absolutely!” Answering so quickly, there was no doubt he meant it despite knowing it irked her to hear it, “Especially where you’re concerned.”

With an eye roll, Cordelia let out a trademark, “Pfft! You and your caveman tactics.”

“Vampire instincts,” he corrected smoothly. “That’s just the way it is.”

And then to top it off, the stammering over being accused of flirting, I was grinning my head off, wow what a wonderful picture, I could see him squirming!

QUOTE

Angel stood agape realizing that Cordelia was completely serious about thinking that he flirted with the blond woman in the grocery store. He now understood why she’d gone to the car and refused to talk to him all the way home. “Cor— it wasn’t like that— I-I mean— really, y-you can’t think that I was actually— actually coming onto her. She just saw the turkey baster in our basket and wanted to know which aisle we found it in.”

How gorgeous of him was it to buy her those novelty cooking things LOVE IT!!!! OMG I could kiss him as if I were Cordy!!!

Then the dinner, wow I love how I’m not he only non Buffy lover here at AO, makes me feel normal lol! I moss Willow and Oz, they were my fave couple back when I watched BTVS!

I choked half way thru the dinner again with the LMAO at the revelations, such a lot to take in and you showed everyones discomfort in such a funny way!

And then the nearly smoochy moment! Loved it so much babes and now where’s that Part 46?????? Don’t be mean (sulk)

Loadza love, Helen


LUCKYLYN:

A New Chapter! Yay! This is fantastic. I’m glad Cordy’s lowering her barriers and I love Angel and Cordy together. I can’t wait for more of this.


CHRISTY:

Lovely, Lysa! You write in such detail I could imagine myself sitting right there with the group at the table.

Xander. He’s, so, Xander!

QUOTE

“Chief sidekick and rabble-rouser,” Xander cleared his throat as he handed over the bowl of beans.

I love the kiss the cook and chef’s hat detail. I have an image in my head now! Angel in that apron and hat and *nothing* else!

QUOTE

“This is Sunnydale,” Cordelia reminded him. “Waking up in the morning puts me in danger. I’d just rather wake up next to you.”

Angel captured her wrist and reeled her closer. “Careful, baby, I’m beginning to think you might care.”

I can’t wait to see what her response to that is!

I patiently await the next part!


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Girl your my favorite well one of my favorite authors again.
Love the protective nautre of the Chases, love how Angel sets them straight.
Love the uses of the jealuous Angel Buffy and Cordy, love the apron and the hat.
Ok can’t wait for more
from Kim


DAMNSKIPPY:

What a great domestic scene. Angel in the kitchen makes me hot for some reason. The little bickering over the flirting in the store was great. Just thinking of them in the grocery store shopping is funny. And a turkey baster in the cart?!? Freaky.

I’m glad Buffy’s mostly over things. I loved the Scoobie moments, but especially the weirdness of a possible Joyce/Giles hookup.

QUOTE

“This isn’t parent-teacher night! There’s vibiness,” Buffy whined ruefully. “I sense vibiness. It’s— I think— ugh!— I think they’re flirting.”

“Eew!” Xander’s nose scrunched up at the idea. He instantly understood why Buffy was crawling with the wiggins. “That’s your mom. That’s Giles. That’s just so—”

“Wrong,” Buffy finished as her stomach churned.

LOL! Eww, middle-age sex! Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it kids.

And was knocked out by this moment.

QUOTE

An electric current ran through her body just by touching him, drawing her entire focus to his handsome face. Cordelia’s fingers trailed slowly down the contours of his cheek and jaw. Dropping down, her hand took hold of the front part of the apron, planning to pull it over his head, but seemingly stuck in a moment where she could do nothing except meet the intensity of his gaze.

So beautiful, Angel found himself mesmerized by the megawatt grin on her gorgeous face. Neither her parents nor the Scoobies had seen Cordelia as he did only a few hours before, her skin flushed and rosy, her silky hair tangled after his fingers had threaded through her tresses. Now she was again a picture of perfection except for one small flaw.

A tiny red smear of the cranberry relish she’d tasted was clinging to the corner of her mouth calling to him in a way that could not be denied. Cupping her cheek, Angel leaned in to kiss it away finding her tasting of cranberries, cinnamon and lip-gloss.

The two of them so completely wrapped up in each other they forget a whole room of people is watching. Mmmm…

Okay, I’m done with this chapter. Bring on 46!


KATRINA:

Yay, another part.

This was wonderful, thanks Lysa. Cordy’s jealousy of Angel flirting and his gift were so cute and couple-y I just basked in the moment.

And I really like how Cordy is slowly coming to realise her feelings for Angel, with some help from her Mum, I like how she recognised their love.

QUOTE

Angel captured her wrist and reeled her closer. “Careful, baby, I’m beginning to think you might care.”

*squeal* I loved that line, I’m beginning to think it too, but it’s been so gradual and realistic and perfectly done it all just feels natural. I don’t think I’m expressing myself very well here, sorry, I do love this and I do think you’re brilliant.

Big hugs

Kat


GILLY:

Whee another wonderful chapter, and not the last, does happy dance….

Good idea to have them all together for ‘thanksgiving dinner’, or maybe not if it turns into a bun fight.

Great to see Cordy’s parents involved again, I wondered what had happened to them..

I agree with Christy about the hat, apron and nothing else. , swoon, what an image.

So you have the next part ready, but are torturing us, so cruel

Perhaps a pretty please will help.


MANDERS-21:

This was another great chapter, Lysa. And so happy there’s still more, I seriously don’t want this to ever end.

I couldn’t wait for that dinner and now that it’s finally come it was perfect. I was even salivating as Angel dished out the food. Mmmm, turkey, bean caserole, sweet potatoes – ok Im torturing myself I need to stop.

QUOTE

“I suppose flirting with that blonde bimbo at the grocery store was just instinct, too,” Cordelia rattled out before she could stop herself. Damn! She’d told herself to forget that.

Looking clueless, Angel stared at her with those dark chocolate eyes melting into hers. “Flirting? Was not.”

“Was too,” snapped Cordelia refusing to get caught up in that stare.

“Was—”

“Too!” Stepping closer to Angel, she put her hands on her hips presenting herself in a mock-hero stance with an equally mocking psuedo-Angel voice, “Here I am to save the day, Miss Bimbo. Yes, my turkey baster is a large one. Let me show you.”

hilarious!!!! You can show me any day.

I love the humourous side of Angel, I love the cynical dorkness of it.

QUOTE

“This is Sunnydale,” Cordelia reminded him. “Waking up in the morning puts me in danger. I’d just rather wake up next to you.”

Angel captured her wrist and reeled her closer. “Careful, baby, I’m beginning to think you might care.”

Cordy always knows how to compliment her vamp, with saying what those little words. And I loved his reply, he gets it exactly.

Im hanging for that next one and making a note to myself to get everything cleared from my schedule by then. Nothing is gunna come between me and my DoN fix!!!

Amanda


BECJANE:

Great Part Lysa. Love Angel getting all broody over Xander & Cordy being all jealous over the blonde bimbo!!

QUOTE

“You’re not a vampire too, are you?” Emelia eyed the young man sitting next to her with a discerning glance.

Several snorts and giggles sounded from around the table. Turning pale at the idea, Xander barked, “No! I’m human— I’m no Deadboy! Totally alive and fully functioning here.”

Adored everything Xander came out with in this chapter He was such fun.

QUOTE

“This is Sunnydale,” Cordelia reminded him. “Waking up in the morning puts me in danger. I’d just rather wake up next to you.”

lysa,
Are we playing tug of war here with your fic? lol one minute together next minute apart, pulling a Cali really has worked for this fic.
Love this and can’t wiat for more, and just for posting this i will send more of TDOJ
from Kim


LEX:

Awww, poor Angel. I love the dichotomy between the dominate possessive aspect of Angel and the vulnerability that he exhibits in his relationship with Cordelia. Great chapter- can’t wait to read more.


ANGELICLADYD:

Can’t WAIT to see where you’re going with this. This story has such rich back story, and developments! I’m always on the edge of my seat. Absolutely amazing! I wonder what’s going to happen? Is Angel going to leave and go to LA to give them “space”? Or will they really end up getting married. So many questions, and I’m only giving you a little bit of time. GET TO WRITING NOW. Please


LUCKYLYN:

I’m happy you came out with a new part so soon.I’m really feeling for both Angel and Cordy. So is he going to start courting her now? I can’t wait for more.
FRAZI:

Oh my

And then some more
Girl I wish I had your spindle. The way you weave this story is just too damned flawless. I’m your literary slave! THe potent emotion you spin around these two is just…god I think I need a drink. Heh. Breathtaking sweetie. Absotively posolutely breathtaking.


CALIFI:

Lysa That was absolutely wonderful, hun

Their emotions slammed into me, and I really feel for both of them. Cordy is so confused and shredded inside, and poor Angel has his aching heart on his sleeve. Will they sort themselves out and get together? will she lose him/he lose her?

Cordelia backing off physically is probably the best thing for both- Angel spoke from the heart, and if a guy did what he accused her of, his name would be dirt. Like you said, he can’t take it back- but mebbe Cordy needed to hear it; mebbe now she will actually pull out her feelings and take a good look at them, as it seems to me that she is in that big ole river in Egypt right now.

Amazing gamut of emotions in the chapter, Lysa- superb!- I’m all wrung out

Sachxx:wub:

s, and other content


HELEN:

Hi Lysa

I was so delighted to see this, I was going to wait until tomorrow cos its was midnight, but ended up getting back out of bed. How’s that for an endorsement?

QUOTE

The vampire had been listening to Emelia prattle on about her plans for engagement parties, photo shoots and wedding consultants while a fascinated smile teased the corners of his mouth. Cordelia’s mother suddenly had him thinking thoughts he never imagined were possible— until Cordy’s little slip at the table about being his mate gave him a smidgeon of hope that she might want the same thing.

Wonderful piece of imagery!

Then wow, all the fun left the party didn’t it, sheesh I could see it, feel and taste that hurt and anger babe, bloody wonderfully written!!

The confrontation with Buffy gave me the chills, where oh where are you gonna take this, I’m literally quivering thing that mind you (in a good way).

QUOTE

“He’s enjoying patrol a little too much,” Buffy revealed. “He lets his demon out all of the time. There is no hiding either the vamp face or his killer instincts. He fights with a blind passion that scares me.”

Concern filled her voice as she added, “It’s as if he’s got nothing to lose.”

The argument was so poignant I didn’t know who to root for, they have so much to go through and yet, I just have to quote this cos yes I *am* sick!

QUOTE

Angel tossed his book aside, leaning forward so that there were only inches between them. “Do we have to revisit the discussion about chaining you to the bed?”

Another thing I just loved how they both wanted to refrain and Angel went so far as to head on out with his Duste and axe, again with the tremendous imagery!!

Again I’m feeling for them both and just begging for some more of this bloody marvellous fic babe!

Hugs, Helen


KATRINA:

Oh wow Lysa,

That was just a heart breaking part. I feel so bad for poor Angel, when Cordy said what she did in the kitchen I had tears, it was so touching.

And yet poor Cordy is trying so hard, it’s all so confusing for them, and I wish it were easy but the good things in life so never are.

The nightmares have me buggin’ though. What do they mean? Who is watching? And why is Angel talking to Cordy’s Mum? I have so many questions, I can’t wait for the answers.

Loved this part Lysa. Thank you.

Hugs

Kat


MANDERS-21:

Truly awesome!

Is it wrong of me not to feel sorry for Cordy when Angel was upset with her?

Amanda


SUNSCORCHED:

Maybe this is me thinking too hard about her nightmares but I can’t get past the possibility that they’re somehow related to the way she keeps an emotional distance from Angel.

I was gutted for both Angel and Cordy, unrequitted love’s a bitch to say the very least and to feel like you don’t even that from the one you love must be a downright killer.

A part or so later and I’m still LMAO at the library scene, just keep picturing Giles’ expression over and over! I blame you for that

Anyhoo, I can’t help but wonder if Angel’s conversing with Cordy’s mum over the wedding she wants them to have. *gasps* How utterly romantic would that be? Have it all planned and then make it so she turns up with the only thing to do is get ready… Sorry *grins sheepishly*

I’m glad that Cordy found the willpower to stop things from going too far before leaving for school. Not only does it give them a few hours away from each other, but the absence could also make her heart grow fonder.

Looking forward to the next part and answers to the many questions that are running through my head. Can’t wait to see if the nightmares mean anything and if the wedding will actually take place!

Love you hon and kudos for another wonderful part to what is already an amazing work of art.


DAMNSKIPPY:

I wanted to kill Cordy for saying she didn’t love him. She’s like a fanatic B/Aer now and it’s just pissing me off. Get over it already. You’ve got more than most people ever have! You’ve got Angelus AND Angel. Grab onto that manpire and never let him go, silly girl.

I hope those dreams freak her out enough to realize she’s about to lose everything.

Sorry for the rant, Lysa, but you make it all too real.


BECJANE:

Truly heart-renching part Lysa

QUOTE

Stopping halfway across the room, Cordelia turned to look him in the eye. “Marriage is for people in love. We don’t qualify.”

Ouch! That was really harsh – I think poor Angel needs a

QUOTE

Angel’s words slammed into her like a battering ram. For all intents and purposes, he had just called her an unfeeling bitch who used him for sex. It hurt to hear it, but his utter belief in what he’d said incensed her even more. Now Angel was gearing up for more as he towered above her, those dark eyes boring into hers.

Although Cordelia had the urge to curl her hand into a fist to show the vampire just how insane she thought that accusation really was, she couldn’t follow through with it. There were tears burning at her eyes and she’d be damned before she’d let them fall in front of him.

Cordelia sure is in denial at the moment, isn’t she? Okay so Angel was a bit cruel, but his words did have some truth in them.

Waiting with baited breath for the next part…

Becky


CHRISTY:

Another amazing chapter, Lysa! I you!

I absolutely love the way you go into great detail with the charachter emotions; what they are thinking. Makes your story flow so nice!
With that, I say I feel bad for both Cordy and Angel here. Cordelia has been through emotional hell, losing Angelus, flirting emotions with the previous Angel, and then getting the new and improved Angel. And now these horrible dreams! I can’t wait to see how they play out!

And I feel bad for the ‘new and improved Angel’. He loves her so much and only wants her to love him back, with all of her heart.

I’m still in denial that this story is almost done. ((Must quit now before I get teary-eyed))

Thank you.

SOMETIMES TACTLESS:

I let out a cheer when I saw that you had posted new chapters (luckily no one else was here or I would have gotten some strange looks). I love this story. It just keeps getting better and better. The conflict and uncertainty between Angel and Cordy keeps me guessing. There is so much emotion between the two of them, yet the lack of honest communication (and even personal understanding) is hindering them. Cordy seriously needs to tell her manpire that she loves him and he needs to get his destiny settled. Please post more soon.

HESPERUS:

Yay Lysa!

Exquisitely written as always, I love that Angel stepped back. Was afraid he would push Cordy even harder and I love how you’ve written Cordy slowly coming around, now he’s given her the space. Just kissing! – pfft! I also love how she was worried about her pushy mother, firstly over a secret engagment/marriage and then dragging Angel into her schemes with his money! Those dreams are a worry though, I can’t wait to see where you’re going with this… can’t believe you’ve almost finished , what a ride!


HELEN:

Lysa babe

Geeze I only had ten minutes and dammit I’ve run out of time after reading part 1, promise to come back for the next two cos hello! Iits blood brilliant as ever.

QUOTE

Angel thought that was a given. “You’re becoming my obsession, sweetheart. That’s not something either of us need.”

Frankly, Cordelia wasn’t certain what she wanted. Only that whatever it was that it included him. “I thought I was supposed to be Obsesso-Girl. That it was me lusting after you.”

“It works both ways.”

“Glad you realize it,” her voice altered from its defensive tone. Confusion set in as she asked, “What do we do, Angel? I meant what I said— I’m trying. I even thought we were getting somewhere.”

“We skipped a few steps.” Angel blamed himself for that. He’d pushed her when she wasn’t ready

I loved that from both of them, wonderful description of the scene I could picture it in my head and hear every syllable!

QUOTE

“No, don’t you see? It’s just the truth.” Cordelia admitted as she took a step closer placing her palm on his chest. There was no heartbeat beneath her hand, but she could not doubt the fact that he loved her. For now. “I want to love you, Angel, but—
what if I can’t?”

Whoah with the angst, poor Angel but credit to Cordy for being so honest. God, please tell me this is going to have a happy ending! I’ll bed if that helps.

QUOTE

“Good. Now when do I get to play with your sword?” Cordelia asked him eagerly.

Groaning at the turn of phrase, Angel focused on what she really meant to ask, “Letting you play with sharp objects is not on the list for a while. Besides, Cor, it’s practice not playing.”

“Potato, po-tah-to, Angel,” she rolled her eyes. Turning to face him, Cordelia put her hands on her hips to make her case. “Same thing.”

LMAO! Serious funny little scene I love them training and you do that to perfection.

Now like I promised I will be back to read and leave FB for the last two parts.

Love ya, Helen


GILLY:

Oh wow Lysa, hot ‘kissing’, this is such a great fic,

Love the way Cordy’s mum and Willow are talking to Angel without Cordy’s knowledge.

Also the way Angel’s trying to get into the spirit of Christmas, especially the mistletoe, he’ll be growing some for his own personal use.

Looking forward to the next parts.


MANDERS-21:

She’s finally realised the depth of her feelings, hasn’t she. About damn time!!!

Loved Angel shopping for a christmas tree, what I would give to see that anal-vamp determined to find ‘the one’.

Cordelia’s mother has me all excited, what could she have possibly planned. I’m thinking it ust what Cordelia doesn’t want.

Those ‘kisses’ were frickin hot, I wish I got ‘kisses’ like that on a regular basis, damn!

Cordy’s dreams are becoming more and more real, I hope she can figure out why the moirae are sending them to her before it’s too late.

Love this Lysa, fantastic job like always.

Amanda


SUNSCORCHED:

Lysa?

HOLY CRAP! Amazing

You don’t half know how to build the tension and I love you for it! There are so many pieces I wanna quote but the microwave has literally beeped and will pop back after muchly needed food!
*runs back in* Heya, I’m back with a rave review!

Part 47…!

Not even Willow’s genius brains can forgo the manipulative part of Cordy’s bamboozling ways! The interraction between both girls was relatively spot on and it was great to see how you had the red head describe the strange friend-ship she had with Angelus.

Not just that, but it kinda brought a smile to my face when Willow still referred to him by that name. Sort of like she wants to keep her own memories of him alive.

I felt for Angel when Cordy began talking about how Angelus and her had been friends before lovers. I also felt for her because it hurt her to say that but glad she did. Now, she and Angel can start fresh and get to do all that romancey stuff all over again *sighs* Heehee!!

QUOTE

“Is that all you have to say?” Cordelia was doing her best to open up to him about her relationship with Angelus and all the guy could do was growl? Curling up her fingers in the air like a pair of sharp claws, she parodied his response. “Grr?”

LOL! Just like a typical male, you ask him if he wants tea or coffee and he goes “Umph!”

QUOTE

He had to wonder if it was even his name that she was crying out. It could be the other Angel, his other self, just as it could be Angelus she was missing. After all, it was Angelus who was no longer here. Helpless against it all, Angel could only provide meager comfort and hope that soon the nightmares would fade away.

I felt so sorry for Angel at this bit, he wants to protect her from everything but he can’t. Poor little mite must be feeling so helpless right now, Cordy needs to give him a hug!!

This part has only built everything up that little bit more hon and I’m glued to the screen with anticipation!

Part 48…!

QUOTE

A minute later, the dull thunk of Cordelia’s back colliding with the wooden surface of the door brought them both to their senses. Somehow, she was in his arms with her legs wrapped around him as he held her aloft. Their lips parting slowly, reluctantly, both looked a little sheepish upon realizing how close they’d come to breaking their own rules.

LOL!!!

This part was so enjoyable, funny and emotional without one genre overshadowing another. Quite a hard task to do but well done! You’ve managed to keep them in character without having too strong angst in it.

Loved Cordy worrying over what her mother was cooking up on the engagement thing. I can almost see her panicked expression! Muchly understood the finance concern, after all Angel did her parents out of possible jail.

Their first Christmas together is certainly going to be special, I wonder what he’s going to get her for it! More to the point what’s she going to get him?!

Angel using decorations as a way of kicking off their first Xmas was a lovely little gesture that almost makes me wish for Xmas to hurry up this year!

For me, the most adorable bit of this part was the light flirty banter between Cordy and Angel. It wasn’t enough to make them uncomfortable but it was enough to know there was still more than simple lust on both sides.

Part 49…!

Out of the three parts here, this has to be my fave one. It has so many little delicious images, scenes and conversations in it and just so you know, I’ve read it more than three times while writing my FB!!!!

OMG! The image of Angel tree shopping is just the nicest thing in the world. I can so see him listing off reasons why trees shouldn’t cost that much, he’d be ticking each one off on his fingers!

Brilliant!

And Cordy flirting with Santa at Angel’s expense was a sweet little scene. If only someone would tell the vamp flirting is harmless fun.

The mistletoe kiss was simply sublime, kudos to the nice lady for making them do it properly

I have sooo missed your smut! The ‘kisses’ were hot and again delicious though I wish Angel had heard Cordy out *grumbles*

Anyhoo, if I go on any longer I’ll be here all night! Toodles *blows lots of loving kisses*


KIMMERS:

Yay Lysa you update and just when i was abotu to stalk you, this is good very good.
The bonding between Angel and cordy roomantic the Willow nspying on cordy even be4tter.

Hi babe back again

QUOTE

She didn’t want the humiliation of a broken engagement when Angel left her.

Only Giles, Buffy and the Scoobies knew about the extent of her relationship with Angel. Harmony and Aura figured it was serious, but had no idea of Angel’s true nature. How could they possibly know what it was like to be claimed by a vampire, to be his mate, to be loved despite your every attempt at avoiding it? Pfft! Clueless, all of them.

I adored the whole part babes, but bloomin eck that was just so touching that she’d honestly believe that and yet you finished the part with a superb 100% high wattage C/A scene that cleared so much up leaving only a sliver of moraie doubt!

Damn woman, subtle much!

QUOTE

A far-away look appeared suggesting he was already imagining it, but then he said with all seriousness, “I’d love it, baby, but what I want doesn’t come with a bow.”

Her heart thudded a little faster as Cordelia realized he meant her love. Angel had used that word sparingly ever since their fight. He was right, though. Love wasn’t something she could put in a box and decorate with shiny wrapping paper and tie up neatly with a bow, but it was a gift. Something she thought she’d lost completely.

Suddenly, Cordelia wanted to hear him say those words again. Just as a reminder that it was true. That he loved her. “Tell me, Angel. What do you wan—”

“Trains!” Angel cut her off, a silly boyish grin lighting his features as he glanced over her shoulder. Grabbing her by the hand, he pulled her along to a store display where miniature trains chugged through a sleepy ceramic village.

“You want little trains?” muttered Cordelia. That was so not what she expected him to say. Unless he was simply trying to avoid the conversation. She wasn’t sure that she wanted to let him get away with that, but Angel was so engrossed in following the path of the train as it wound around the base of a decorated tree that she could only watch in wonder.

I know the quotes long but damn I just loved it, wonderful truly scrumptious I’m on tenderhooks waiting for Cordy to tell him she loves how. How cool is it that in your fic its HER feelings that are in doubt- love it!

Can I just say I loved the old lady shopkeeper, hah oh yeah some rules were just meant to be broken, it was lovely short and impossibly sweet.

Can you believe the kids are starting just as I got to the hot smut, dammit, have to come back to it. Mom stuff!

Have to rush now but Lysa this is just superb!!

Huggles, Helen


CALIFI:

Dammit, grrr! Beaten to the quotes yet again- am I getting slack or summat?

Well, you know how much I love this, but it is always worth repeating- I LOVE THIS!

God, and only one chapter to go? should I cry or should I come to your house for Margeritas, dragging Hely and Scorch with me [though I must warn you, they’ll porbably be sozzled before we get there
Cannot wait for the big number 50; gonna love it and cry an bit, but love it! Thanks for the amazing ride, hun.

Well, I’m not crying (unless it’s tears of joy). I’m all for the margeritas. As for Hely and Scorchy…I’ll just get ’em more sozzled up anyway so they might as well arrive that way. That goes for the rest of my Oaisian pals.

My muses have been strangely present and accounted for the past couple of days. I already have 6/7 of the last chapter written and then there’s just the epilogue to go. Hehe! Then there’s the editing and reediting and the…*ahem*…I hope to post again by next weekend. Sooner if RL behaves itself for a few days.

Love you all! I do so appreciate all of the feedback you give me. I tend to take up enough of your time with my marathon chapters, so the extra time you do take to write a reply or PM me is really, really appreciated.


SUNSCORCHED:

*whines* I don’t want it to enndd *pouts dejectedly*

Sooo looking forward to part 50 and epilogue

Me sozzled? Where on Earth would you get an idea like that? I never suffer any form of alcoholic intoxication. Oh the disgrace


KATRINA:

Lysa,

Sorry to be delayed with the feedback. I wanted to allow myself the chance to read in peace and enjoy what I knew would be a wonderful fic, and I’m glad I waited for just the right time.

I really enjoyed watching Cordelia and Angel come up with their own new tradition and I’m so happy that they can share something that Cordelia didn’t have with anything else. Yay Christmas.

Willow was funny, I love how she attempted to work Cordy and ended getting worked herself. At least she got some great gift ideas out of the exchange.

I had a little tear at Cordy only telling Angel of her love whilst he was sleeping. She has so much fear, damn those nightmares.

I can’t wait for the next part, yay, will read with a margarita in hand and toast your brilliance.

Big hugs

Kat


DAMNSKIPPY:

These chapters really gave me hope. I love that Angel wants them to have their own memories and Christmas was the perfect time for that.

He tore my heart out when he told Cordy what he wanted couldn’t be tied up with a bow. *sniff* But she’s finally getting the feelings. I just hope she finds a way to tell him and that he’ll believe it’s truly him she loves.

I can’t wait for the last chapter but I’m sad it’s coming to an end. I’ve really come to love this combo Angel you’ve created and I’m going to miss him.


LIOSLAITH:

Hi Lysa,

I’m sorry for taking so long to leave you FB on DoN but I have been a tad busy over the past few weeks. But I finally took time to catch up with the fic I had missed, so rather than forget (again) to leave FB I decided to PM you this time.

I made a New Year’s Resolution (my only one) to be more regular with leaving FB but I’ve kind of got a little off track.

After reading the final part and epilogue I got to thinking, you didn’t just write Angel/Angelus in this fic you actually managed to write 4 completely different vampires which were all connected but all different.

There was Angel (the original) complete with his split personality, then both A/Aus and finally all three squished together (by three I mean A/Aus/Liam). You certainly took us on a roller coaster ride. And I personally loved every minute of my ride.

You must feel very accomplished (not to mention exhausted) after writing the equivalent to a full sized book. A C/Aus Bodice Ripper at that.

I hadn’t realised you had been writing this fic for so long until I had a look back at the earlier parts that I had saved on my computer.

I hope your not too hung over with your celebrating completing your novel. And I thought your first two C/Aus fics were long, (not to forget Promise of the Night). After writing practically non stop for this long you must be completely ready to go and I wouldn’t blame you at all.

You’ll be if you ever see the word ‘challenge’ in another PM/Email again – especially if it’s sent by Scorchy.

I know I run for cover whenever I see her name on a PM mentioning the word ‘stalk’ or ‘my fic’. I have the excuse of working on getting all my sites restructured and up, but even then I am feeling a tad hunted, but I figure they have to catch me first before they could stalk me regardless of Cali’s baguette or Scorchy kitten heels!!

I haven’t been ignoring my fic, believe it or not, but I am going through a ‘nothing is good enough’ phase and editing and polishing my work. Also fixing some pesky ‘plot’ points which didn’t make much sense to me in the grand scheme. I can’t seem to stop plotting my fics, even those which start off as plotless smut. I think I have problem with working plotless, I just can’t do it.

Talking about plots I didn’t see that whole LA/TPTB/Doyle plot coming in the final parts of DoN. That was sneaky and totally out of left field. I hadn’t even been expecting any AtS characters/plots to creep in so I was surprised when they turned up. You certainly worked out a complex plot to interweave with Scorchy’s challenge.

I like how Doyle (and Judy – I had pretty much forgotten about her) were written in, and this time Judy didn’t end up dead. And Wes and Faith turning up was yet another twist I hadn’t expected. The last few parts where just choc-a-block full of twists I hadn’t expected. Including Cordelia’s nightmares, I had simply written them off in my mind to be a result of all the emotional turmoil her character was going through and had gone through.

Your sneaky I’ll give you that, as well as someone who weaves pretty complex plotlines. However do you keep them all straight? Do you plot all these twists and turns before writing your story or evolve them as the story evolves?

I thought my own plotlines were complex but I have nothing on yours. I thought you had weaved an intricate plot with your ‘Connection’ stories but DoN surpassing even those.

You must feel totally exhausted now. Not that I blame you in the least.

Oh well, I better get back to my own plotting and writing, I’ve been putting it off long enough. I’m busy untwisting the first part of Aus Investigations the ending (and it’s whole Buffy/Willow recursing thingie) has to be erased and inserted later on. That was too quick, plus I have some delicate plotting to do on the whole ‘prophecy’ angle. I also wasn’t too happy with Aus agreement to take the Oracles up on the Power’s deal, I think he agreed too quickly so I am carefully rewriting that part so that the deal/conversation is clearer but the Oracles still don’t give away my whole plotline behind Aus return and his ‘destiny’. I have been giving that part a good hard think and am going to clarify it. I have pages of notes of what I want his ‘destiny’ and the ‘prophecy’ to be and now I am going to plan out how my twisted machinations are unravelled in the story.

Well, believe it or not this was only mean’t to be a short PM. I just can’t master the ‘short’ part very well.

ANGEL KISSES 70

Standing ovation!!!!

And bowing down to your story-telling greatness!

Oh Lysa, this has been such a stupendous story. It definitely goes into my archive of all-time favorite Angel fics (along with your other fics.)

I could see this all played out in my mind and now I want a sequel! Let’s see what happens in LA! Either that or write the sequel to your Connection stories! Still waiting paitently for “The Eternal Connection” to find out how you twist the rest of ATS to fit your verse.

I wub the Lysaverse!

Peace out,
Mel


LUCKYLYN:

I was so happy and disappointed to see this chapter come up. Happy because I was dying to find out what would happen next and disappointed because this would be the last part. This fic has been so amazing to read. At the end of each chapter, I would get more and more enthralled. You did a perfect job Lysa. The characters were well developed, and there were fantastic twists and surprises. Thanks for a great read. I will miss looking forward to the next part.


FRAZI:

OH my god………….

It’s finished…..

OHMIGOD you finished it! Am i the only one here who thinks this feels too much like losing your morning paper and knowing you’re never EVER going to get it again! Oh my god! I loved this from start to finish Lysa and i meant what i said about the whole muse thing. You are breathtaking and I think this is one of your VERY bestest works.

I dont’ think I’ve never seen so many potent emotions and i swear the ride was about as frustrating, exhilerating and conflicting as it was for your characters. I swear it’s been one hell of a series and although, I can well imagine your’e tired and need a break after this I sure as hell hope to god this isn’t the last 😛 hehehe. You know me. Always want more.

Beautiful.


*ANGEL LOVER*:

Lysa!!!

It’s absolutely good, more than good, it’s perfect! I love the whole fic! (it’s become one of my favourites fics)

Nieves


WRITINGPATHWAYS:

Early February I read up to wherever you had left off at that point, I think it was Chapter 47, then I gobbled up the chapters as you posted and now, waaaaah it’s over.

But I want a sequel. Pretty please! So glad that Cordy and Angel will always be together though! And fantastic writing and characterization!


ONLYANNE:

Loved how you managed Angel/Angelus and Angel and brought a great AU story to LA, Doyle and the Hyperion. Great Job. Great story telling.

anne


KIMMERS:

Lysa you rock

Lysa,
Wow it’s done, i cna’t beleive it’s as they say like an end of a era :that: , but a good end.
For the past eight months you have given us time and time again, the most brillant writing that has come across lately.
You took a simple challenge, from scorchy that someone else would have be done with at ten chapters and made it into a novel. :drool:
Brillant, wonderful, angst, lovely, heartache are all words or feelings that i get when reading this. :bump: :boff:
I am sure when Scorchy suggested this she never thought that it would go on this long.
But once again you suprised us, and have to agree you need to be channelged again.
Pheebz has a good challenge at the moment talk to her about it lol
:flex: Guess that means that now your not as busy, i am going to get stalked lol.
can’t wait to see what you take on next
from Kim :grouphug:


IZZYCHASE:

Wow.. and wow.

Thanks for the wonderful wrap-up; I can’t believe I read this fic from day 1 and now it’s ending.

Thanks for the laughs and smut, as well as for keeping all the Buffy/Angelverse characters intact.

Cheers!

Iz.


SOMETIMES TACTLESS:

Oh, my gosh. Lysa, first of all let me say that this story has become one of my favorites and that it’s been some wild ride. I want to personally thank you for including Doyle in this last chapter. The first soldier down has always been one of my favorite characters and I love to see him remembered in fanfiction. I loved all of the character development, especially Wesley (I think I could have a crush on this enthusiastic watcher guy). I also liked the fact that Buffy was able to grow. Many stories simply keep her one dimensional and, let’s face it, whiny. You didn’t do that. And I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved Cordy and Angel. Well, I am long-winded so I will simply say YOU ROCK!!!

P.S. Would there be a sequel sometime in the future? Pretty please?


FANG GIRL:

It’s really over… Lysa
First I want to thank you for your dedication to this fic. It was a wonderful display of writing and story arc. I think that this goes down as one of my very favorites.
There was not one day that I didn’t search for the next part it was such a touching and fun romp around the AU. I felt for every character. You write them so well and I credit you with that from beginning to end. I will in fact read it again and probably print it out so I can take it on the plane ride that I have coming up. Your imagination is endless and frankly I was sucked into this world you created so quickly.
When you relax for a while you think you might do a sequel?? I know that is asking a lot but I would love to see more of this story… Maybe after a little while… you think…
This was a treat and whether or not you write a sequel, I will treasure it.
In the words of our lovely Miss Chase “You rock…way to go.”

Huggles Jill


IMPRESS:

Wonderful way to end the fic. I liked how you worked Doyle, Faith, Wes, the Hyperion and Cordy’s ascension into it.
This story was a major work and your efforts are very much appreciated.

PS. I’m all for margaritas. I’ll even bring the tequila.


GILLY:

Wow Lysa, it’s finished!
What a fantastic read all the way through, you should give yourself a large pat on the back for finishing sich a wonderful fic. I know it will go into my favorites archive and I’m sure other peeps as well.

I really enjoyed the twists and turns of your plot, say nothing of the suspense and lovin’.


FEEDBACK at AO after the CRASH:


HELEN:

Hey babe

Ain’t it bloody typical! That happened to me a while ago too. Dammit!

All that FB lost and right at the end too, grrrrrrrrr!!!! Nevermind babes you know how much we adored it!

Huge commiserating hugs and agreeing on the fic!

Hely


KIMMERS:

Lysa,
Oh no it’s not good and after i came up with all thoses wonderful words ok here goes.
Brillant wonnderful happy, erotic, sexual, angst, sad, happiness are the words that i would take to describe this fic.
That has been eight months of hard work blood and sweet on your part.
Trully you took a small challenge that somebody else would have done away with a long time ago and made it into a novel.
Congrats on being at the end but i am sure it’s like losing a baby
from Kim


MANDERS-21

Lol, I finally got around to leaving the much deserved feedback for it to get wiped almost instantly.

But like I said before, this was beyond brilliant right up until the end. I loved how you managed to keep twisting the plot, and in turn keeping me guessing the whole way, even in the last chapter. Adding Doyle and the cannon into your AU plot was fabulous, and so very well done.

Your epic has been written so well that this fic to me seems like it could easily replace the original season(s) altogether. And set up the scene for another season (ehrrr…sequel) to come.

Mucho love for an outstanding fic,

Amanda


NAIRI:

Lysa!!!

It’s absolutely good, more than good, it’s perfect! I love the whole fic! (It’s become one of my favorite fics)

Once again Lysa this was brilliant and i can´t wait to read more from you.
Nairi


BECJANE:

Lysa

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Thanks for a brilliant fic.

I’ve enjoyed every word – all 300,000 of them!! Glad you told us how long it was – I’ve always wanted to know. By my estimate that makes it close to 500 A4 pages so it truly is a novel – and an amazing one at that.

QUOTE

Those pliant lips spoke nothing but truth and when Cordelia continued, Angel took it as an oath, “I love you, Angel. I love you so much that I ache with it and no demon, person or Powers that Be will ever stand in the way of that again.”

So glad that Cordy finally admitted that she loved him and her proposing to Angel at the end was a nice twist too.

Can’t wait to see what you write next.

Becky


JENNIEC:

You WENCH!!!!!!! You have no idea what you’ve done to me!!!! I am in some serious need of sleep, but this can’t wait. LOL!!

Let me explain. I started my online fandom about 3 years ago, and while searching through fanfic, I came across some C/ Aus fics that turned me off the genre – they were very…violent…yeah, I know Aus is a vampire with very basic animal instincts, but I still couldn’t reconcile with what I was reading. Basically all it did was disturb me. That said, any fics where Aus figured prominately, I stayed away from, as my experience hadn’t been good in that area. Then along came DoN. I resisted, right to the end. Then, after 50 chapters, and loads of accolades later, I decided, maybe an C/Aus fic might not be that bad. Besides, I had gotten a chance to get to know you a little, and I wanted to be supportive.

Well, I printed out a few chapters to take with me on my commute to work. A little reading here, a little there, until I found myself glued to my computer from Friday night until I finished last night. This is one FANTASTIC fic. I could kick myself for not starting any sooner – what I was missing out on was some FABULOUS story telling!

Lysa, I don’t know how to give FB that will do justice to the story I read. You have single handedly opened my eyes to a world of new fic, and have inspired me to kick my muse off the couch. You have given me entertainment that had me whirling from all that I felt as each paged turned. Even though none of my laundry got done, my house is in serious need of dusting (having skipped out on my weekend chores) – I do not regret a moment. Thank you for such a wonderful story, and for all your hard work to give it to us.

I feel like I haven’t said enough….

hugs

jen


CALIFI:

[SNIFFLE] You know, I still can’t believe it’s alllll over [/SNIFFLE]

This has been a ride and a half, Lysa and you deserve a goddamn medal for hanging in there and never missing a beat. I have my heroes, and you are one of ’em [the others know who they are *wink*].

If I ever get to even close the point of excellence shown in this epic, I will be more than happy.

I’ll leave the quoting to others, cos I doubt they’d want me to quote the entire 50 chapters in one go, [but then again… ]

Fantastic, Lysa- and can’t wait to see what else you have up that meandering sleeve of yours.
Sachxxx


KATRINA:

Lysa,

I’m so sad that all your well deserved feedback is gone, that’s so sad. I want to leave exactly the same feedback but can’t remember what I wrote.

I enjoyed this fic from beginning to end. The attention to detail and well thought out plot were completely apparent right from the start, I admire this since plotting is not a skill I possess.

The characterisations were great and I really liked the new Angel that came from the smushing of the twins.

Thank you for entertaining us and giving so much of yourself and I am completely hanging out for the threesome

Hugs

Kat


ANGEL’S CORDY:

Yeah, it’s me again… ;-))
I was wondering if you could send me the complete fic “Double or nothing” because I’d like to post it on a roleplaying board. Of course NOT WITHOUT your permission to do so…but I gotta say that I LOVED this piece of art and I’d like to share it with a few friends of mine…so if I get your permission and the whole fic, I’d love to post it on that board…
love, greetz and hugs
Angels Cordy


MARIE:

Lysa,

I was hooked on this fic from the word go.

It is a work of epic and mammoth proportions and you should be proud of yourself.

I know you probably will feel like having a little break now, but honestly I don’t think you should cos I will suffer from withdrawal symptoms
Marie


CHRISTY:

I’m way behind, I know I read the last, what, 4 or so parts at once.

I never predicted the Hyperion Hotel Demon would come into play in the story. When I read that, sense was made with the way Cordelia had been acting, her feelings towards Angel. Frickin’ amazing! I loved Doyle in here too.

Words cannot describe how I loved every single chapter! I adore you
I’m so sad to see this end. You have given us such an amazing story, Lysa. Thank you for entertaining us with such an amazing epic adventure.

I look forward to more of your writing! I see a 3-some I need to read now, hehe. Lysa smut…Hot Damn!


OS2RIOS:

A big WOW for your Double or Nothing fic! I absolutely loved the angst, the characters, and the plot. WOOOWWZZEEERRR!!!!!!!


SILVERVIXEN:

Just wanted to say I loved Double or Nothing on just fic, it nearly
had me screaming at Cor when she kept arguing with him. I loved how it
tied in some important aspects of the series and twisted them into
your story 🙂 now once my eyes are unblurred from staring at the
screen so lond I’m going to read the rest of the fic’s 🙂


CORDY69 / PAT:

One that I really like is from Lysa and it is called DOUBLE OR NOTHING, it’s posted on the fan-fic page and it’s a complete work (very long, and sooooo good).

I don’t know how to go to it from here but if you are in the index page just go to l and then to lysa work.

I never wrote to the author but honestly, it’s the one fiction I send everyone of my friends to read and there’s Angel realising a bit late in the game that he rather be with Cordy and soooo much more!


CORDY69 (Via Email):

Lysa, are you the same person that authored Double or Nothing? It’s my number one fan fic ever (I mean it). I bugged so many online friends to read it and discuss it, I can’t believe I may actually talk to you. Well, at least I can say that I recently transformed a B/A shipper into a young C/A shipper with that work, it was amazing.


ROBIN NELSON:

I just wanted to write and let you know how much I loved this story. I have never been a Cordelia/Angel fan but your writing totally changed my viewpoint. This has got to be one of the most dark, erotic and yet funny Angel fics I have ever read. Thank you so much for writing this.

It did take me a few hours to read it all, but it was worth it. In fact I was sorry to see it end! The erotic tension in it was amazing. Like I wrote, this is the only Cordelia/Angel fic I have ever gotten into. A big part of that is your awesome writing. I am usually a big Willow/Angel or Willow/Spike fan but I have read just about everything written about them and was desperate for some Angel or Spike goodness and yours was nice and long. It totally satisfied my cravings.

I read your First Connection and sequel this afternoon. They were both really good. I loved how you interspersed ATS episodes in with your own original plot. It was really cool to relive some of my favorite episodes. I don’t know how you do it, but you have a rare gift for mixing eroticism and humor while remaining true to the characters. I have read a lot of BTVS fanfiction and yours is some of the best I have ever read. I found your stuff on the Soulmates webpage. Do you have anymore that isn’t listed there? I really love your work. Do you write professionally?

Again thanks so much for the reading pleasure!

Your Awed FanFiction Minion,

Robin


TOOTYNFROOTY:

Loved the bonus scenes. I love how your mind works.


DUSTED:

Hey all.
Can anyone tell me which episode of Buffy season2 it was when Angelus pinned Cordelia to the ground? Thanks in advance

I was only reminded of this scene after reading a few of Lysa’s wonderfully addictive fics. I am ashamed to admit i had never read Double or Nothing. Shocking i know but wow…love it. So much so, it stopped me doing any uni work over the 3 days it took me to read it.
So does anyone know of any other fics where Angel and Angelus become seperate beings, two persons?
Again, thanks in advance.


thewolfsmoon (Fic Rec List at LJ)

July 7, 2018

The following are isolated because I want to highlight them as the most powerful C/A fics I’ve read.

The latter has a portion that is the first piece of writing that has ever made me cry, full on cry like a baby!

Double or Nothing by Lysa
