DescriptionHere's an idea I love, but I can't seem to get it off the ground.

During Buffy's Sixth Season Tara left Willow because of the red head's magic addiction. Sure, we know this, but what we don't know is just what she got up to during the couple of months before she came back. What if she met a strange man with a magic blue box and found herself on a journey across time and space?

Basically the challenge is what if Tara spent a couple of adventures as a companion to the Doctor shortly before her untimely death? The idea is that throughout her adventures she learns to forgive Willow and that the best way to help is not to leave but to be there for everyone.

Simple; absolutely and positively no Doctor / Rose romance. Putting aside my dislike for the character there are thousands of Doctor / Rose stories out there, something like this needs to be a bit more original.

A couple of suggestions:-

Try going for a classic Doctor and include some other companions too. For example, if you use the Second Doctor he always travelled with Jamie so include him. Maybe as a protective big brother figure. Or perhaps the Fourth Doctor with the Second Romana, Tara becoming Romana's companion continuing Romana's journey as the Doctor's apprentice. Try someone other than Ten and Eleven for a change

just as important Tara should be more than just luggage. She has to bring her own perspective to a situation and be more than a third wheel or a hostage. She would have a lot to offer, not just magically but from who she really is.

Off you go and best of luck!
