*pokes story, pokes author* There's more to this right?

Do I need to resort to bribery? 'Cause any reason to look for hot pics of Tara on the web is a plus.
Comments from author:
I do have another chapter pretty much ready to go...but it's a flashback and I realized it would reveal too much about my *twist*. So I have to save it till I have a few more chapters in. But since you know the twist I can let you read it if you like. ;)

Fair trade for the *secret* artwork you made me. :)

But bribery could work too...

Review of chapter "Episode 1.1 Pilot" from (Moderator)KaylaShay
Brilliant. With all the build up, it was great to finally read that first chapter. Nice job by the way on glazing over the white woman incident.

Also, I thought of something concerning a future villain in your story, but I'll talk to you in chat about it.

Thanks for a great pilot, even if Sam is nowhere to be seen.

EDIT: Still love the story and hope for more soon... ;-)

Excellent...I need villains. :)

I'm glad you liked it. Now that I posted I will need to stay focused on writing more chapters.

Review of chapter "Episode 1.1 Pilot" from (Moderator)Ava

I know that you used dialogue from the Pilot but damn I didn't even notice. You captured Tara's soft spoken but strong backed personality. Her reaction to their father and how their mother would have wanted something more for them, it's a more vocal outlook than Sam's. Makes me think Dean and Tara were possibly closer than the brothers were. I'm proof that a younger sister can bond with her older brother and cheerfully mock his taste in music at the same time.

Dean's reaction to Jess, priceless: "Dude." Still giggling and the remark about Tara hitting like a girl. John nearly killing Tara's 4th grade teacher was fun and seems like a very John-like thing. This concept spreads a different light on the series and you can go so many places with it! BTW: Loved the casual mention of Sunnydale.

Thank you for sharing and told you I'd gush...sorry.

Wow...I am a slacker. I never responded to this. Thanks for the kind words. :) It's nice to get some Ava-gush on's good for the skin.

Review of chapter "Episode 1.1 Pilot" from littleoldme
This is intriguing, but I think you're going to need to work on making Tara more Tara-ish and less of simply a stand-in for Sam. This is going to be a difficult story to write, because so much of who Tara was was due to her upbringing. I'm not sure how you can change that so drastically and keep her as Tara. I'm also less than convinced that Dean would act the same way towards a little sister as he did towards Sam, or that John would have treated Tara, a girl, the same way he treated Sam growing up. Plus Sam's relationship with his father was based largely on how much he chafed under the strict regiment, and how often they yelled at each other and disagreed, and that type of behaviour is definitely out of character for Tara, so even hinting that Tara and John shared the relationship that Sam and John had is really disengenous. I think this fic can be done, but it's going to take a little more thinking about who Tara is, how having her personality in the Winchester family would have affected that family, and how being raised that way would have affected Tara. There's a careful balance to be struck, and I don't think you have it quite yet.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the honest review. I'll just have to see where this goes. I did notice as I was writing that Tara was not very Tara like. I think that given the choice between letting Tara live a "normal" life and training her so she could be prepared he'd choose training.

And being a girl it would probably be worse. As I write more and think about the character more I think it will come more into focus.

Review of chapter "Episode 1.1 Pilot" from (Moderator)Demona
This looks like it is off to a great start. Are you going to follow the SPN timeline or are you going to have other events worked into your story. I believe we talked about this, but the answer has escaped me. I am looking forward to more chapters. Post more soon darnit!

And you bastard, you killed Sammy!

Comments from author:
I'll just assume that's the sick talking. ;)

I plan to follow the SN timeline but most of the chapters will fit between episodes. That way I can do less fact checking and write faster. And Sammy will show up in chapter 24 as the son of Jean Summers and Cyclops from the future. And he'll have a cybernetic virus that holds his healing factor in check....wait a minute that's something else. Never mind that part. :)

Review of chapter "Episode 1.1 Pilot" from Chosenfire
Saturn is my god...Saturn is my god...oh okay I love this and it was interesting to see Tara in Sam's role. It adds on a whole nother dynamic and I am looking toward to more. I am hoping you could include the Buffyverse into this more because while I love this Tara I want to see how similiar she is to the show's Tara. And I am glad you like the pic, I love what you a Kayla did with it and the title totally works. Can't wait for more.
Comments from author:
I have plans to include the rest of the Buffyverse. I have big plans for Dawn and Willow...and maybe Faith. I even have some minor plans for Andrew. It won't be for a few chapters though. I might get crazy and do some flashbacks to Sunnydale though.
