Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from Meneldur
Review:
This was really good. I love Tara, and the thing I loved most was ho you wrote her in her final moments, still so caring, still so full of love, trying to get Willow to move, regretting that she couldn't comfort Willow or give her final words. The end is perfect in leaving itself open for more, especially if we consider the way the Phoenix handled the Jean/Scott relationship, and treated Scott because of Jean's love for him. Especially since in my headcanon Willow is the Sorceress Supreme of her Earth. And even more so when you consider that Tara would probably not be corrupted as Jean, being far more grounded and in control... Anyway, great story, with tons of potential. Tara is now tied with Emma and Magik for favorite Phoenix for me.
Comments from author:
I dunno, given some of Willow's temperament and inability to handle people being better than her at... well, anything? Tara might end up roaming and finding a pretty blonde telepathic girlfriend. Or something. Dunno. This could merge well into the Tara/Emma 'verse if I modified the latter a bit.

Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from MarcusRowland
Review:
I like this - Tara's death is one of the best canon places to insert weird powers etc., it's surprising it isn't used more often. Cries out for a sequel!
Comments from author:
Like I said to someone else, it had to be "complete" because the Fic-a-Day pieces are supposed to be self-contained bits. Doesn't mean I won't touch it in the future, though.

Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from draconis
Review:
Nice ficlet.

Loved the observational bit about endings...you do have a way with dialogue (int/external) in your stories.

"...which tended to end in, well, Buffy ending someone. On the other hand? At least that scenario prolonged the whole 'ending' part "

Thanks.

I'm surprised how well this came out, given the time limit...

Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from aeraveil
Review:
Well, another reason why the Phoenix force was corrupted, was simply that Jean wasn't exactly stable or in a stable environment. Tara, out of all of them is probably the most stable person around. She has a pretty good chance of fighting the corruption that such power brings.
Comments from author:
Tara's got great self-control and is very sparing in use of power. Oh God, could you imagine if I'd written what the challenge requested, and gave WILLOW of all people the Phoenix Force?

Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from Musicalife
Review:
Given what I know of the Phoenix Force (which isn't much, I only know of Jean Grey), I don't think the Phoenix bonded with Tara could become as corrupted as she was with Jean unless this is before the fact than anything goes.
Comments from author:
I'd have to agree. Tara strikes me as far more grounded than Jean...

Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from Chikageko
Review:
of all the things you take time to write and of all the things you one-shot, I find myself thinking you should trade.

Out of curiosity, if you were going to continue this one, would it be in the marvel verse or straight BTVS? If it's the former then there's all of the hundreds of plots you could play with and if it's the latter think of all the amusing chaos it would cause to have supers start showing up everywhere? According to one of the major Phoenix arcs the reason people keep surviving life ending accidents or horrible mutations and becoming supers is because of the Phoenix. She's trying to make vessels strong enough to escape through.
Comments from author:
Technically, by the terms of the Fic-a-Day challenge, everything posted as an entry must be a self-contained piece. You can do chains of self-contained pieces, such as my Around the Marvel Universe bits, but they must still stand alone as ficlets. So this had to be marked complete. Will I revisit it on September 1st, or ever again? Possibly. No promises, but it is an idea I've been pondering for a while...

Review of chapter "Ignition (Tara/Phoenix Force)" from Harry
Review:
This looks interesting! Now, the only question I have is this: Are you going to have Tara become the White Witch/Queen of the Sunnydale Chapter of the Hellfire Club and Willow as her Black Witch/Queen/lover?
Comments from author:
It's a finished one-shot.
