Reviews for To Live & Try in L.A.
MBB chapter 1 . 5/17/2004
Great counter-story to the Angel-trailer :-)
Leanne8582 chapter 1 . 11/7/2003
This was really great. I loved the Cordy POV. You wrote her really well. And my favorite line: "You always hear the stories about how some guy got pulled off the street by a manager while walking his dog, and poof! He’s on a hit show." That was hilarious. Perfect in-joke. Good job.
Teleri chapter 1 . 9/25/2001
This is absolutely perfect! You really have a gift with Cordelia and this is the story I wanted to hear about in the beginning of Angel. Very well-written and great mastery of character. Now if they were all dying and grief-striken I'd say you were actually Joss hanging on a fanfic board. Good Job!
Gyrus chapter 1 . 6/6/2001
This is a good blank to fill in (I have a fondness for summer-between-seasons" fics). I think I would have liked to have seen even more of the events from before "City of..." and less of the ep itself. On the plus side, Cordelia's desperation is made very real and compelling here, as are the dark, threatening aspects of her new environment. I liked the unspoken parallel among the pornographer, the hooker-recruiter, and the vampire, all interested in exploiting a fresh body. Overall, pretty good.
LA chapter 1 . 5/30/2001
Love your writing
Heliona chapter 1 . 5/30/2001
Nice. :) See, laconic! I do like it, though. :)
GrayCardamon chapter 1 . 2/10/2001
This story is just so totally Cordy. I generally don't like first person stories, but this one *worked*. It was her voice, from beginning to end. And the chance to sort of get into her head, to see what the transition (and it was one hell of a transition) from Sunnydale queen to LA nobody was great. You've done a wonderful job. Thanks for the great read.
lunarlanding chapter 1 . 1/23/2001
I've been hoping to read a story like this for some time. It was very well written. I really enjoyed it. The words flowed together quite nicely, and Cordelia is totally in character.
Sarge chapter 1 . 1/23/2001
