BECAUSE CORDY'S HERE AND CORDY'S AWESOME AND I LOVE HER
AND YET SHE DIES IN THIS UNIVERSE
Fun fact: I was just going to allude to this, and then Cordy just randomly calls up Xander and is like "this is getting shown on-screen. I didn't have a cool enough part on either show. The least you can do is let me have my time on the stage here", and I was like...well, fair point. (sometimes my characters do things i don't expect and I just go with it.)
Also, it's kinda interesting that it got written in first person, because I think that's legit the first time for this 'verse.
That's a huge failure on the part of Angel. I would've loved just a dropped line about how she calls Xander or vice versa, because it would be a big moment of growth for both of them. Because yes, it's a failed relationship, and I think both of them would acknowledge that, and Xander would probably be too embarrassed to talk to her for a while, but eventually he'd get over himself because they both still love each other, just not in the same way. Not in a romantic way. If he felt he could gossip or vent with anyone, Xander would probably go with Cordy, because she's not there, and she's actually proven her mature self to not tell too many secrets. Buffy was such a teenage show because when relationships ended they weren't brought up again unless it could serve as more angst/drama. But if anyone, I think Xander would be the type to still be friends with and die for his exes (assuming they weren't killed/dusted for attempting to nom him on the first date).
P.S. Apparently I've been forgetting ratings for a while through incomplete copy/paste...luckily I lurk at The Sunnydale Herald and noticed they were labeling the fics 'not rated', so thanks there! also is that a P4 Death card? Just when I thought I couldn't love you any more /grins
Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Iron Man Crossover
Summary: Cordy spends most of her phone's minutes calling her ex. It's one of her better life choices.
