Review of chapter "The First Step" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
That was exquisite. I love how you got into her head. I love the visions you gave her. I love the fact that the Sunnydale one didn't have just beauty and joy, but also darkness...

Thank you for sharing your talent with us.


PS: it deserves more than 3 reviews.

Thank you! I must admit that this is one of my favorite stories that I have written. I really loved the character of Tara, and I was NOT happy that Joss killed her. I felt like we just scratched the surface of her back story. She was so shy and timid when we first met her - how did she ever get the courage to go out on her own in the first place? I liked exploring that, but it was doomed to be at least a little bittersweet since we know what her ultimate fate would be.

Review of chapter "The First Step" from Gideon
Lovely story! I am glad that Tara got a little help to encourage her to take the first step out on her own.

Review of chapter "The First Step" from Lady
This is a wonderful explanation of how Tara came to be in Sunnydale. She was so obviously far from home that there had to be some compelling reason and you have found one. You have also captured the essence of her as well. She sounds like Tara too & I can see her slowly weaving her way into the hearts of all the Scoobies just as she did in the show. Well done a really good piece of writing.

Thank you so much!

I'm thrilled that this little story has a review at long last. It was written under time constraints for the Buffy Lyric Wheel about a million years ago. I came up with the concept of exploring a pre-series Tara, and I could just picture her environment. I was most concerned with presenting Tara's voice accurately, and I am so glad that you thought I accomplished that.

Thanks again!
