ARCHIVED KUDOS & CRITIQUES


TOL

WRITTEN in MARCH 2004
A CHALLENGE ISSUED BY IMPRESS in the AO CHALLENGE THREAD
Cordelia realizes she’s in love with Angel and sets out to seduce him,
but our vampire doesn’t seem to get the hint.


KIMMERS:

 

Wow Lysa you sure got a lot done wow wow wow wow

Fav moment in the entire fic was this

QUOTE

Big brother? Pfft, Angel rolled his eyes at the thought. Then he started to think that might be how Cordelia wanted him to treat her. Certainly, she wouldn’t want to know that he lusted after his best friend. No doubt, in her words, that would simply be… eew.

This one was way way funny big time girl you rock.
Think that your out for scorchys crown so now get moving with the next one
from Kim

SYDSVAUGHN:

 

Love it! The last line however has to be one of my favorite’s of all time!

CALIFI:

QUOTE
“If anyone in this office is gonna help Angel get laid,” she mumbled glaring back over her shoulder at the stairs, “It’ll be me. Personally. Assuming I don’t stake him for not telling me about his soul.”

Absolutely wonderful, Lsya! It is everything I thought it would be- and then some.

So much to quote, but Kimmers had a field day, so I quote my most loved bit and send occolades for the rest.

Love it, and can’t wait to read more of these from you *hypnotic glare* check out the challllleeeeennnngggeeessssss

 


IMPRESS:

 

Lysa that was wonderful. I can’t quote a favorite part cuz I would risk quoting the whole thing. Thanks for taking the time to do this.


LUCKYLYN:

 

This was fantastic. I got a kick out of clueless Angel being set straight by Cordy. This was a fun read.


BECJANE:

 

Perfect! Humour and hot smut in one delicious fic.

QUOTE
Fred knew that she was hardly the expert in personal relationships, but all of these flirtation games seemed like they were getting Cordelia nowhere. “Why don’t you tell Angel how you feel?”

But that would be far too simple and not nearly as much fun!

Loved the last line

How about a little epilogue? Want to see Wes and Gunn’s reaction

FANG GIRL:

 

One word……FABULOUS!

Impress:
I’m glad you liked it! You always come up with interesting challenges. This was lots of fun to write. Not sure if I managed the subtle *and* graphic smut though. Subtle is always tricky for me.

I’m getting sleepy, very sleeeeepy. *awakens refreshed* What was that again? A challenge to check something? My vision? Good idea. Will schedule eye exam immediately.

Ooh! You are evil. Refer to definition of standalone. Stop putting ideas in my head. There’s already enough confusion in there!

Sydsvaughn, Luckylyn, Kimmers & FangGirl…thanks for posting FB. I gobble it up like ice cream.


CCKE:

 

whiiiiiiiiiii loved it loved it loved it


ONLYANN:

 

Cute, sexy and sweet. Fun story that gave me a big old smile. Thanks.

anne


JENNY:

 

That was GREAT! I loved it!


GILLY:

 

Ummm Lysa, yummy hot and steamy fic.

It’s great the way they both are trying to resist, with Wes and Gunn adding thier twopennyworth.

I noticed your challenge above, I just love your standalones, I’ll have to think of one for you.

A truly wonderful fic.


HELEN:

 

Hi Lysa

As promised back again and WOW, you really know how to bring a concept to life and then some don’t you. Superb! I have no idea where the hell to start, so I’ll be prosiac and start at the beginning lol!

QUOTE
“A guy like him,” Gunn suggested, “the girls already crawl all over him. He could be gettin’ it every night. Gotta tell the vamp to get a life.”

I so have to agree with Gunn on this one and BOY wouldn’t I like to be giving!

QUOTE

Explore possibilities, my ass. They’re just thinking about getting laid. Let Angel do all the hard work by walking in the door looking…okay, admit it…pretty damn hot and then they reap the benefits by latching on to the cast-offs. Cordelia restlessly paced in front of the office door. Wes is just as deranged as Gunn. There will be no exploring of any kind, dammit.

LMAO! God, I’d love to read about that can you imagine how hysterical it would be. I adore how Cordy’s mind works, yum!

QUOTE

Wesley drolled, “Angel has probably forgotten more about sex than you’ve ever known.”

“Don’t dis me, dawg,” Gunn harrumphed. “Do I wanna know how you know that?”

Sounding offended, Wes explained, “Research, of course. There are several volumes dedicated to th—”

Oohhhhhhh I need details! Please c’mon how much beggng does a drooling reader need to do to get some sympathy around here???

QUOTE
“Geez, just listen to me. I sound like I’m in love with him,” Cordelia rolled her eyes and stared up at the ceiling laughing at her own observation.

Only the words didn’t sound so amusing when she thought about it again and stared silently back at the mirror where Dennis was again drawing a heart. Maybe she’d thought about the possibility a few times, but always ruled it out as being the bonds of their friendship. “No, no, no, I can’t be in love with him. He’s a hottie. Yes, I find him attractive. I even fully admit that I don’t want him to have sex with anyone else, but love?”

Aww Poor Cordy and yet I can only be jealous, wonderful the way you have her sorta thinking of it, denying it then accepting it, so believable and realistic

QUOTE
Flirtation took a back seat to work though Cordelia grabbed every opportunity that came along to touch him. She wasn’t happy unless she had her hands on him, a fact that Angel seemed totally oblivious about. If anyone was being seduced around this office, Cordelia was convinced she was seducing herself.

Thinking about rustling the sheets with a certain manpire can do that to a girl, what the hell is smut fanfic all about otherwise???

QUOTE
Angel let Gunn do the fast talking. He was already feeling tongue-tied and wasn’t at all certain that this was a good idea to begin with. Thoughts of dating, other than the fact that he hadn’t done that in a while, seemed almost like he’d be cheating on Cordelia. Ridiculous idea, but there it was. Angel couldn’t get it out of his head and that made him all the more determined to go through with it.

OK I just adored Angel’s thinking here, especially the cheating on Cordy part (sigh drool) I love that manpire, thanks to you fic anyway!

QUOTE

Angel wasn’t oblivious to the neat little smile that stretched too tightly across her beautiful face. She was pissed at him. Again. “Dammit, Cordy, you’re not a loose end. I’m not tying you up.”

Snorting, Cordelia’s little smile turned devlish, “I’d like to see you try.”

Ooh I’d love to see him try too. I love this fixation of your’s Lysa babes, prolly cos I share it 100% (snort and snicker)

Then what can I say but beautiful and fucking fangtastically hot and smutty sex! You never disappoint and now I’m stuck in work with no way to work off the *ahem* extra energy.

Thanks for another wonderfully detailed and emotive fic Hun. Keep em coming!

Huggles, Helen


SUNSCORCHED:

I’ve had a rotten case of the flu but all better now.

I came back to find this little gem from you, which is a great little ficlet with a side-serving of sweet smut. There is lots to quote here and so I will resist the urge to do so cus I’d be here all day.

However, there is one little bit that stood out to me and so quotation will occur.

QUOTE
Wrapping him in her intimate hold, Cordelia circled his shoulders and tucked her lugs around him as her hips bucked upward meeting his in that timeless rhythm.

LUGS!!!!!

I’d give anything to see Cordy wrap her ears around Angel. Nice phrasing there Lysa, definitely brought a large grin and chased away the remaining fog clouding my head!!


LYSA:

 LMAO! I’m a nurse. You’d think I’d know anatomy.

Trust you to find one of my few typos. Grrr. See what happens when I don’t have a beta? Now being the obsessive person that I am I hafta go fix my lug problem here and at ST.

Glad to see you back on the board Scorchy!!! Missed ya!


NAIRI:

 

Lysa, this was brilliant, funny and very hot. Loved it.
Nairi


ANGELIA:

 

Quote:

Wesley drolled, “Angel has probably forgotten more about sex than you’ve ever known.”

Which is why Cordy’s a very lucky girl.

There’s so much to love about this story. Cordy on a mission to get Angel and get laid, the demon children who conned Cordy into jumping rope, the Cordy/Dennis bathtime convo and her epiphany of love, Wes and Gunn being protective of Cordy and their conversation with a clueless Angel, still slightly crazy Fred and her worry over Taco Haven. And the smut, we can’t forget the smut. So glad you took this challenge and a big thanks to Impress for making it. Yet another great read Lysa. It was sweetly sexy and so much fun to read. Thanks for sharing.


ARKADY:

 

This was a fantastic story. I liked the way you wrote both Cordy and Angel and I had to laugh at the reactions of Wes and Gunn.


SOMETIMES TACTLESS:

 

Lysa, I have to thank you for this story because it reminded me of my favorite era in ATS. I love the sense of family and friendship that abounded and you captured it perfectly. Wes and Gunn commiserating with their fellow male and hoping that Angel could get some, yet at the same time very protective of Cordy (I somehow don’t think this is what they meant when they wanted Angel to have sex *LOL*).

You wrote the C/A relationship beautifully with their closeness and, at the same time, their sharp edges. And the smut was both fun and hot, which is not an easy thing to pull off, but you write it so well. Thanks again.

Fantastic fic!

I really loved Cordelia’s attempts at trying to gain Angel’s attention, and him trying to ignore them, or plain just not noticing them due to his own insecurities!!!

Wesley and Gunn’s protective sides were sweet, but I’m sure as hell glad Fred managed to get them the hell outta there so Angel and Cordy could enjoy the ‘sheets’ without interuption.

Thanks for writing!


TEENOFTHEEIGHTIES:

 

This was just gorgeous. It was the perfect mix of fun, sexy, and laugh-out-loud humour. I loved all of Cordelia’s seduction games – deliberately dropping the post-it note and bending down to pick it up, displaying copious amounts of flesh at all times, calling attention to her mouth with the coffee, enlisting Fred’s help, adding her underwear to his laundry, and of course the sheets. She sure had her work cut out for her but she snagged her man in the end. And when they finally tested those sheets – sizzling hot! Thanks for the smut!
~Lisa.
