Sadness!

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Meneldur
Review:
So, the story picks up. Tara and Roshana are off to rescue Conan while making some magic, and the Scoobies figured out where their destination is, though thye need to rescue Angel.
The real development was Tara's decision. What brought her to it? Looser fashions? Walking around half-naked? Public baths and lesbian cougars? More importantly, how long will it last? And most importantly, of course, is what will happen when Willow finally arrives? On the one hand, I'd like to think she'd forgive Tara, especially after all Tara forgave her. And Tara couldn't know Willow owuld find her. But if Tara is still with Roshana at the time, will she even want to go back to Willow? Or even Earth, for that matter?
Scary thought: if they ever reach the hypoborean age, Xander's going to be their guide, since he knows the most about the world... and Willow will porbably be interpreter, being the best at foreign languages. Can't wait to see how this develops.
Comments from author:
The things you mention were all involved in Tara's decision. Also she believes that the odds are that she'll never see Willow again.

Willow's rescue plan isn't going to go the way you envision it...

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from freydis
Review:
This is turning into a great story! It's good to see Tara shine. I only knew Conan through the movie, so I'm enjoying the world of the books.

Also like what you're doing with the story back in Sunnydale. Can't help imagining what would happen if they end up in Hyperboria too. Looks like fun regardless.

Good to see you writing again.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Best fic I've read on Conan for a long time, just wish the chapters came round quicker. Oh well, I'll take what I can get.

Great stuff!
Dave.
Comments from author:
Thank you!

Real Life has been cutting into my writing time a lot this year. This chapter was further delayed by my having to do lots of research, much of which involved me watching videos starring pairs of pretty girls in states of undress, a hardship which I endured for the sake of the readers. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. The next chapter, in which Tara will at last meet Conan, should follow much quicker.

Review:
“And Tara’s stuck in that awful age of barbarians! She must be suffering dreadfully.”

Good call, Willow...
Comments from author:
Somehow I don't think she'd be overly delighted if she found out just how wrong she is...

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Review:
An interesting tale - very much, I felt, in the vein of the original Conan stories. Looking forward to more.

Comments from author:
Thank you!

The battle, and Conan's capture, is lifted directly from R E Howard's story 'The Scarlet Citadel'.

Review:
Well, well, well, welcome back! Nice to see more of this fic.

As a matter of interest, most women I've known over the years definitely would risk having their hearts cut out if there was chocolate up for grabs!

Hope to see more of this...soon?

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)Tempi
Review:
Sounds like the plan of a typical adventuring party in a DnD world. I look forward to reading how they plan to rescue Conan.
Comments from author:
Conan was one of the major influences on the creation of D&D, after all.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from PATM
Review:
Conan, Howard's character not some actor at last. Mean while back at the ranch stuff is good anchor work for what I hope is the main story. I also savored Roshan's form. What a beauty!

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from LordSchmodder
Review:
Ooh - this is very nice. As a long time Conan fan and, of course, Buffy fan this shapes up to be really nice.
I like your Tara and the practicability of Roshan ('I only take gems of dead people') very nice...

CU.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Good to see you're keeping Tara's magic consistent with Joss logic. On-the-fly spells are able to do pretty much anything, but they're effectively only steps towards a goal that's ultimately achieved by either planned magic or physical action. Well used here, because the physical action that ended the combat was only made possible by the spell that freed Roshan.

Nice to read from Tara's perspective. I'm curious as to how useful her aura reading will be; I think it has potential in theory but it was underused on the show... which could be either because it wasn't terribly effective or it was just too passive of an ability to appear regularly in dialogue.

Adventuring to free a wizard sounds good :D
Comments from author:
Thank you! I found an on-line resource detailing all the spells used in BtVS, with their wording and gestures and when and where they were used, and I've been making extensive use of it, and the BtVS Roleplaying Game sourcebooks, for this story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Qaz
Review:
Another interesting chapter, will Tara introduce some technology if she gets the opportunity?
Comments from author:
Thank you! I was tempted, considering the title I gave the story, to have her introduce the Seed Drill and the practice of Horse Hoeing Husbandry to Aquilonia ("The Witch's Promise" is a Jethro Tull song and the band is named after the 18th-century agriculturalist who introduced those innovations to England) but it wouldn't really fit her background and would only have been a private in-joke for my own benefit. Technological improvements, in reality, depend upon a chain of small improvements and a significant leap forward is remarkably difficult. There was a BBC TV series called "James Burke's Connections" which examined this in detail (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connections_%28TV_series%29). She might perhaps introduce some small improvements to their looms and show their smiths how to make hinged scissors.
