Review of chapter "10 Things That Never Happened to Tara" from (Past Donor)DanKnight
Great drabbles. I wasn't familiar with a lot of the fandoms but they were still fun. Especially enjoyed the Highlander drabble, creative idea.
Comments from author:
Thanks! If you would like any background/explanation on the unfamiliar fandoms just let me know. I'm glad you liked the Highlander drabble. I really wanted to think of something a little different to do with that one. Thanks again.

Review of chapter "10 Things That Never Happened to Tara" from Cutiepie
I find I am impressed that even though you did some dark bits, you managed to never change the fundamental feel of Tara. Even when she killed Richard in the Anita Blake cross, you had her do it for a reason that I find works. Only one I don't get is the Matrix one, but that is probably because I typically stay away from anything dealing with The Matrix. It's not my thing. And while I don't actually like the dark ones, all are well done, so thank you for writing them. =]
Comments from author:
Thank you! That's a fabulous compliment. My entire goal was to experiment with how Tara would behave in these different environments without changing her core being. I'm so glad that you think I managed that balancing act. As for the Matrix, I've never written anything in that genre before, but I liked the idea of tying in the witchcraft angle. (I was also hoping to stir some curiosity about who was the lover that was waiting for her, but no questions yet.)
I've been in a bit of a darkfic mood lately, and while they may not be fun to write, they can be . . . satisfying. I wanted to play with the whole spectrum of emotions and stretch the character as much as possible without losing that something that makes her quintessentially Tara.
Thanks again.

Review of chapter "10 Things That Never Happened to Tara" from (Past Donor)polgara
*Snickers* Someone has watched the Firefly dvd. Those three switches... hee hee... It does seem like he was always flipping them. And yeah, Mal would love to have someone on his crew with that kind of ability.
I didn't recognize all of the genres, but I knew most of them. I liked how not all of them were happy ones, that you mixed them up a bit.
Pretty cool.
Comments from author:
Yes, indeed, I am the proud owner of the Firefly DVD. I couldn't resist the three switches inside joke. I'm glad that you liked the fact that they weren't all happy endings. I figure that Tara's luck would have to be at least as bad in some of these 'verses as it was in Buffy. Plus, I've been in a bit of a darkfic mood. If you would like a bit of background for the ones you didn't recognize, just let me know. Thanks so much for the feedback.

Review of chapter "10 Things That Never Happened to Tara" from CPTSkip
Some of your drabbles made me sad, some made me laugh. I liked them all. Well done.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I didn't plan which fandoms would get a happy drabble and which ones would get a dark one. They just sort of evolved. I'm so glad you liked both kinds.
