Review of chapter "Excerpts from Season Seven" from (Recent Donor)redjacobson
Review:
Very interesting story, and the ending line was a bit of a shocker. I really liked Tara's vengeance on Warren, it was very appropriate.

Review of chapter "Excerpts from Season Seven" from lunalurker
Review:
Beautiful and sad and a very interesting AU. Not the ones that you see often at all. I love Tara, she rarely gets enough attention, or the spotlight like this. Thank you for writing.

Review of chapter "Excerpts from Season Seven" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
Kind of sucks that you didn't include Connor coming back- maybe Cordelia would have been able to heal his soul now that she turned down the offer to 'ascend' (And why did she do that; did she just get a better appreciation of what she can do right now, or what?)-, but your idea for what Tara did to Warren definitely worked, and it was kind of nice to see Angel and Cordelia take Warren by surprise like that.

Review of chapter "Excerpts from Season Seven" from banner
Review:
That was ... wonderful. I love Tara - I always thought that the show underutilized her. You did a perfect job of capturing her voice. This story is a delight from beginning to end.

Review of chapter "Kiss" from ObsidianBlack
Review:
Hrmmm...

I've always felt that Angelus, even being a sadistic killer, was less immoral than the Gypsy tribe who cursed him. Why? Because no matter what kind of horrible things Angelus did to his victims, eventually it was over and the victims knew peace of some kind. The Gypsies, on the other hand, cast a punishment that was eternal and never ending. In my mind, that made them more cruel and immoral than even Angelus.

Those thoughts ran through my mind when I read this. The argument could be made that Tara's punishment against Warren in this story was more morally wrong than Willow's. Warren's suffering was temporary when Willow exacted her revenge, as she eventually killed him, while the suffering continues in this story. And while I admit that their is appeal in making someone suffer for the evils they committed, the ethical part of me condemns such thoughts.

Still an interesting story, nonetheless.
Comments from author:
Hmmm. Now I'm wondering if you're for or against the death penalty. Tara took the anti-capital punishment stance, sometimes justified on the theory that living with what you've done is greater punishment than simply being killed.

I see this as a fair punishment.

Review of chapter "Excerpts from Season Seven" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Review:
You managed the difficult balance of sadness/grief, vengeance/rage, love/hope very well and kept the story believable. I particularly liked Tara's wish. Very well done.

Review of chapter "Excerpts from Season Seven" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
"There was a tall, dark-haired vampire, a short and ugly female demon of some sort, and a gorgeous human-looking woman carrying a sword. She’d have to have been either a demon or a witch to make it past the bartender."

Oh my Gosh! That's the best team up ever!


Huh, I'm curious about - when they slowly broke the news to Buffy - what order they relayed the events in...

A just end for Warren... Hey, that's right. Virtually all of his crimes are believable ones. He's not a summoner (the biggest thing he's done with demons was hire one for a bank job and give it directions to Buffy's house), he didn't use any of his robots for evil and he's only killed with mundane weapons. Cool :)

Nice take on D'Hoffryn, you painted him as calm and repsectful - the D'Hoffryn we saw interacting with Willow - and it came across well.

Compltely awesome work, with one tiny nitpick: Chapter 12 doesn't end with the < / center > tag, which throws off the last chapter when read with "Whole Story"

Excellent ends for Anya, Tara and Cordelia. Things have even gotten better for Lilah ;)

.... Thank you, very much, for bringing this story here :)
Comments from author:
You're very welcome.


Things have definitely gotten better for Anya, Tara, and Cordy, if not for Willow and Andrew.

Of course, things are better for Rack as well.
