Review of chapter "Chapter One" from FireWolfe
I like Tara with a temper.
Comments from author:
Well, I did always think she had yet undiscovered depth in her.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Kremer
A nice idea about the Tara/Whitelighter thing, but I didn't really agree with execution (even if it was pretty well-written).

I certainly didn't agree with totally obliterating Xander's yellow crayon scene. Him declaring to Willow that he loves her as his best friend, no matter what has happened to her even if it means he could die (even after she has hurt him trying to drive him off) is a much more emotionally powerful scene than Tara suddenly running up and saying "If you love me you'll stop this!"

Alternatively, you could have Tara show up after Willow has collapsed in tears, and then be there to help comfort her and then support and heal her emotionally while teaching her how to use her new powers for white magic purposes, for aid and defense against evil.

Alright, good point. I liked the crayon scene too, but I still needed Tara to be the one who stops Willow in this story. About the impact of the line - your probably right too. For a week I delayed posting this one-shot just because I didn't completely like my version, but my brain doesn't seem willing to come up with anything else so I gave up.
Still, I'm happy to hear you did liked this story in spite of everything else.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
This is one of the problems I had with Tara - just too goody-two-shoes. That and her attitude of "it's ok to use magic when I say it is, but not when I say it isn't" - when and how did she appoint herself the meter maid of Willow's magical gifts? Warren not only had it coming, he got off *way* too lightly in canon - he deserved far, far worse for his crimes. I was cheering Dark Willow in that episode; she was a glorious, dark gothic princess off on a black magic rampage - *that* was beautiful. It was indeed just vengeance delivered...
Comments from author:
I do have to agree that Warren got off lightly, but I don't think it was too good for Willow's soul to kill him. And I know Tara is an extremely light character, but that is kind of why she would have become a Whitelighter if Charmed and Buffy really were one world.
I still like Tara, but I can understand if you don't, it seems you like your characters a bit bad.
Anyway thanks for the review, even if I don't really see you mention whether you liked this or not.
