Step In To My Parlor...

Random ramblings, ficcings, and some occasional art. Mostly rambling, though.

'nother Rant
12.28.2006
This is a review of a fic over on TtH that just made me sorta blink. There is, of course, no name attached to the reviewer, the author, or the story because if you're reading this, you'll probably recognize the story based on the information given. And on to the meat of things...

This isn't really about a specific chapter, but rather a feedback on both stories to this point. You're doing pretty good so far in blending the universes. There were a couple of spelling and grammar issues, but who hasn't had those. Once upon a time, when using spellchecker while half awake, I turned "herfear" into "heifer", which was then dutifully posted and remained up for two weeks until I caught it on a read through. It didn't stop people from loving the story. I especially like your approach to romance. Harry and Cho never did it for me. Nor did Ginny. Harry and Dawn seem like a natural, and your habit of cross-house romance is seriously interesting. Draco and Ginny are fascinating. And thanks for sending Willow and Tara in different directions. My wife and I (who met at the old Bronze on line) were discussing this last night and neither of us liked the gay plot twist that Joss used. It felt like bad slash-fic at the time and still does.

     Wow. Just... wow. "Thank God you de-lesbianed Tara because her as a lesbian felt wrong"? Okay, I think someone missed like, all of Seasons 4 through 6. Tara was introduced to be THE LESBIAN. Right, just to make sure you read it... THE LESBIAN. She has sex... with women. If you look at it, all of her action in the series can be traced back to the fact that she and Willow were tonguing each other's pussies. She did magic in the show... with Willow. She moved into and out of the house... because of Willow. She helped Buffy with resurrection because she was in on it... because of Willow. She died because she was there... with Willow.

     If there was no 'gay plot twist', there would have been no Tara character in the show period beyond the cute blonde chick at the on-campus witch group shown in one episode. The two of them are so obvious from the first episode they're in together (I think the Gentlemen, but I could be wrong) that I remember winning $50 off my friend by making a bet that it'd be Willow/Tara after seeing that episode. Given that the subtext was that obvious that early, I doubt that if W/T wasn't in the cards that those scenes would have even been shot. Willow would have escaped on her own or if they wanted Tara just as a mentor character, she would have saved Willow. But from the first time they did the 'let's hold hands and do a spell together' thing? Totally obvious.

So let's recap:
1. Tara is a lesbian
2. Tara was in the show because she was a lesbian
3. If Willow didn't go over to the Dyke Side, Tara probably wouldn't have been in the show for more than one or two episodes
4. If you like Tara but don't like her as a lesbian... you're a fucktard
