Sometimes Goodbye is a Second Chance

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Well, she didn't get another sixty years, but she DID make a big difference in Dexter's life in the end, as well as leaving behind three lovely children. Nicely done!

[Oh, if you can save Rita I'll be grateful forever! As much as I enjoyed Dexter's season 5 efforts to heal his own grief through assisting Lumen in her quest for justice/revenge, I'd have given anything to spare him and the children Rita's cruel death at Trinity's hands.]
Comments from author:
What? You think I'm going to let her die? Actually, my sequel to this is stall because I stopped watching after they killed her off.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DieselDriver
Review:
Nice short. I believe in second chances too. So does every Christian. We all have a second chance.
Comments from author:
Most vampires don't get a second chance. Darla was special that way.

Review:
And Julie Benz is in Defiance as the hooker who happens to be the sister of the mayor of the town Defiance.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the recommendation. Maybe I'll look at that for next year.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Nicely done! I like Julie Benz, she's a wonderful actress and this makes for a great tie-in to Dexter.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I really like her too. So much, that I haven't seen much of Dexter since she died.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
As soon as I read Darla's new name was Rita I figured it out. And she did attract some Very Dark Souls. But just like in the AtS timeline, she did produce some innocent children. I miss her kids on Dexter.
Comments from author:
I miss *her* on Dexter. Then again, I stopped watching after she died. I haven't been able to force myself to go back. Though I do try.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MarcusRowland
Review:
Nicely done - Darla=Rita was nearly part of Give the Boys a Great Big Hand, but I couldn't make it work. This is much better than my idea.
Comments from author:
I don't know about that. I really like GBGBH. Besides, it wasn't until after I read your story that this plot bunny hit.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DianeCastle
Review:
Nice. As soon as you made it Julie Benz and sent her off to a new life still in the Buffyverse, I was guessing "Dexter" or "A Gifted Man" or "Desperate Housewives" rather than "Defiance" or "No Ordinary Family". So as soon as I saw the name Rita, I knew. Well done.
Comments from author:
Don't forget Boondock Saints 2. From vampire to FBI agent. That could be good too.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Caminus
Review:
Darla is everywhere. Not just Dexter, but No Ordinary Family and Defiance too.

Really I think the more interesting side of this potential crossover happens in Miami, if Dexter discovers he's sleeping with one of the most prolific killers of all time.
Comments from author:
It depends on HOW he finds out about her. Also, the code forbids him from killing unless she's going to kill again. I have some ideas about that, but that will be a new story if/when I do it.
