Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from PATM
Review:
It's good to see the impetuous for Tara's return portrayed. Duncan was not surprised to see Richie come back to life but foreseeing a immortals birth was never laid out,but seems possible to me.
The flying stake is something Willow taught Tara? Enjoying this very much.
Comments from author:
In my story, older immortals (over 1000) can get the ability to sense pre-immortals. This sense takes a lot of experience to develop. It is also easier to sense the closer the pre-immortal is to their first death. The Highlander world doesn't have a lot of theory to some aspects of the shows mythology.....so I can put my own twists on the stuff not touched on in the series.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from soulfulone
Review:
damn its getting better and better and i want more and more!! simply brilliant!!
i love Amanda almost getting munched on by a vamp and Tara saving her....very good start for bridging/crossing the 2 verses....and if i'm not mistaken, it sounded like the place where Tara lives is Duncan's place...or at least one like it....it escapes my mind at the moment what city he lived in in the series (gosh its been so long)......again, i say brilliant work!!
Comments from author:
If I recall, he lived in Seattle (or Paris) in the show. This story takes place in St. Louis. And yes, the place does sound familiar doesn't it? :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from zigpal
Review:
Great update. Nice touch with the Amanda and Tara backstory, and with Tara being an immortal, she reaches a requirement for dating Buffy, being kind of old while still looking young. Hurry back, so I can see how Buffy handles Tara's tale.
Comments from author:
I will speculate that there will be more Amanda in flashbacks....whether she will make a live appearance, I can't say.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from djhardim
Review:
“Tajaro Nakamora?”

Sad, if that's the sword I think it is. Duncan carried that katana for roughly two hundred years.
Two possibilities: 1. He doesn't feel he is worthy to carry it any more, or 2. Using it brings back
too many painful memories(killed Richie with it accidently).
Comments from author:
To be honest, I can't remember if I researched the name of the maker of Duncan's sword, or just came up with something Japanese sounding.....I'll take a look and see....but it is NOT Duncan's sword. I'm sure the poor guy made more than one over the years...:P

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from AllenPitt
Review:
So, immortals can sense others, also "pre-immortals" thus the comment by Amanda that Tara would "know when" to call her. Ouch.
* Aside from dying/becoming immortal & lots of training, presumably she's taken a few heads by now which would likely do wonders for her self-confidence ie increased strength, skill, all that good stuff...
* Kind of ironic, with Osiris rejecting Willow's plea to bring Tara back.... he probably knew it wasn't necessary...
Comments from author:
As I understand it, all immortals can sense other immortals. As for immortals sensing "pre-immortals" I think that is a talent that immortals grow in to through experience. Duncan, only 400 probably can't. Amanda, around a thousand years old probably can. :) As for Tara's skills, I can almost see something like an 80's movie montage where Buffy/Tara spar.....hopefully in skimpy clothing.....:)

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from zigpal
Review:
Hmm, very nice start. I'm interested in seeing how Buffy handles Tara's new lease on life, and how it is going to affect their relationship, and what it means to any possible future.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I think Buffy has changed a lot since the end of the show. And immortality has changed Tara as well. The future will be revealed.....one chapter at a time! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from soulfulone
Review:
FABULOUS!!!! i absolutely love, LOVE B/T pairings and the authors on this site don't do enough FF stories as is, but Buffy and Tara....oh my, has christmas come early???? i promise i was a good girl all year LOL....anyway, i love the start of this, i am a huge fan of both series, as well as x-overs....and it will be interesting to see how you marry Tara being Wicca and Immortal and come to a liveable reconciliation for her, 'cause even though it's kill or be killed....these aren't demons she's fighting...and yeah i agree, Willow doesn't need to know...for now i'd much rather see T with B (if that's the direction you're headed)....anyway....love the story, so look forward to more....and really hope it will be soon!!
Comments from author:
Yes, I think B/T is my favorite pairing. While not on this site, I would suggest Kinetic-Kid for some great B/T stories. And while immortals are not demons, I also don't classify them as human either. They are all foundlings as far as we know. They are mystical beings and some are evil.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from AllenPitt
Review:
but that whole "no one from former life must know" really only applies to 'mundanes' --the scoobs know all about the supernatural & wouldn't blink an eye about returns from the dead, immortality etc. I'd think it's more a kindness to Willow -otherwise she'd be growing old and dying while Tara stayed young. Though I suspect Willow will be around for a long time, ie has turned into a "Guardian" like the one guarding the scythe.
Anyway! Should be quite a story Tara has to tell. Hard to believe someone like her could accept the whole 'fight & behead opponents' thing even in self defense.
Comments from author:
I think Tara is able to do what needs doing. She had more than enough backbone to break up with Willow. I was never that happy with her going back to Willow though only to die the next morning. I always looked at the memory spells Willow did as a form of mind rape and if I had been Tara I wouldn't have been able to have a romantic relationship with her again. I think immortality will have changed Tara a lot.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AllenPitt
Review:
This could be interesting... especially if Tara is hundreds of years old and that whole McClay thing was a fake background. Or if she's new, it'd be weird that she actually went with the "your old life is over" thing--after all the scoobies wouldn't have blinked an eye at it, they've seen weirder stuff.....
Hopefully Willow will never find out- ....... next up: does the council that watches immortals have any connection to the council that watches slayers?
Comments from author:
Ahhhh, multiple watcher's councils.....there might be an explanation for that. :) And Willow....hmmm! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)SlayerandWereLeopard
Review:
Excellent start! I thought at first it would be Amanda from highlander the raven. Glad to see Tara is alive! Looking forward to more. :)
Comments from author:
Yes, I write Tara cause I really like her. Think she needs to say more. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from PATM
Review:
Is this a Buffy pairing? I like that Tara is past the should I or not kill quandary. The organization
skill and team work are good to see and no angst for its own sake too. Thanks, I hope to read
more.
Comments from author:
I think that little smile Buffy had at the end of the series was just a hint of her plans for the future. I started writing this well before the season 8 comics and I had a feeling Joss would tend toward more organization for all the Slayers. If you didn't notice....Slayer teams are Slayer/Witch/Soldier.....kind of a toss back to the original scoobies with Buffy/Willow/Xander (soldier boy). As for a Buffy pairing? Read on... :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from gigi
Review:
Interesting start. You should add a disclaimer though. I was also surprised to see Tara. I assume that's who you're pairing up Buffy with? I do like it, though I was thinking it was going to be an actual character from Highlander like Cassandra or Amanda. Anyway, I'd like to see more of this. Please update soon.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the kind words. I don't like to give much away in disclaimers and such as it can ruin certain things for the reader IMHO. Characters from Highlander will appear at some point. This stroy assumes the Buffy and Highlander verses coexist. New chapter soon.
