Aw, yay! Thank you! It might have been from back before we were friends. It feels like I wrote it quite a long time ago.

I'd never pictured a Buffy/Firefly crossover, but Spike and River.... with her a fledgling slayer is a fantastic combination. I loved her needling Jayne, she does it so well and your Mal voice was spot on.

This is an interesting meme. I just may steal it. :)

Yay, thank you! I find voices in Firefly challenging; they're so distinct, but so easy to get wrong.

You should totally steal it. Everyone should steal it. We'll have a self-promotion-palooza. :D

Here from reading the story itself.

I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, since my first experience of you was when you remixed one of my fics, but this still IS surprising in being so richly multi-layered. It’s appallingly easy to oversimplify or romanticize Spike; almost as easy to present River as being either helplessly loopy or preternaturally wise. You seem to avoid both traps almost effortlessly. Well done.

Wow, thank you! Spike's pretty much my favorite character, largely because of all his layers, so I'm really glad to hear that I got some of them across for you. And I agree that River is tricky for the reasons you give. So, thank you very much!

(I've always felt that maybe I cheated a little with that remix; your fic made up such a small part of what I ended up writing. But I'm glad you didn't seem to mind to much.)

That was one of the first crossover fic I've ever read, and it's still my favorite. It's just flawless - the mood, the character voices and the way you made both universes cross in absolutely natural way. I could easily picture it happening onscreen in Firefly and Buffy, which is unfortunately rare thing for crossovers.

Aw, yay! It's so neat to hear that you read it back in the day. I agree with you about the difficulty of crossovers - it's part of why I don't write them very much. I'm so glad that this one works for you, though. Thank you for taking the time to come and comment. :)

Well, 'back in the day' is very relative here, maybe a year or so, I'm very late in both fandoms.
And as a very late (and quite lurky) newcomer, I just must say thank you for all your recs. Your blog will provide me with the excellent reading for another year, I guess.
And I enjoy your own fic tremendously, too. I even read mpreg fic (yes, it's Seraph). And I loved it. And that's all your fault!

You are most welcome for the recs! It's one of my favorite fannish activities, pointing people towards things I enjoy, and I'm always thrilled to hear that someone else finds it useful.

Ha ha, I am always glad to claim another convert for the cause of mpreg. :)
