Did you know that your title says "New Fic: Coming Back ([date])"? I mean, NEW? :lmao

Anyway, I like the switch to Buffy's pov in the beginning of the chapter. After all, she played a large part in the previous hours, relating to Tara what happened during those intervening years. Very smooth to have Buffy bring us to Willow's room to witness the reconnection.

There's still stuff to talk about, to share the missing pieces, to solidify the acknowledge love. But it was important to get the...important stuff out there first.

Ok so I just found this fic yesterday and I stayed up ridiculusly late trrying to finish it (i didnt, I had to finish it today). This story is absolutly amazing. It coveys such emotion and it is just so touching to read. You really make the reader feel like they are experiencing what the characters are, like they are right there with them.
I can't wait to read more of this amazing fic. Please dont make up wait forever for another update... Idont think Ican wait that long!!!!

Your Fan,

Em

That was so incredibly sweet. And even with all the lovely snuggling Willow and Tara were doing (as well as important-type talking) I think the moment I liked the most was when Buffy took a peek into Willow's room and saw them. With everything Buffy's done, not just for Willow but for both of them, to the point where she had to be really brave to talk to Tara the way she did (and end up agonising about whether she did the right thing afterwards), she really deserved a piece of the happiness that's now blossoming. And that's what that scene felt like - Buffy couldn't actually be in the bed sharing the snuggles (for various reasons) but in a sense she kind of metaphorically was; she got to share the warm fuzzy feelings of the moment.

I liked Willow and Tara's conversation too - deep and meaningful in relatively few words, but you've done the hard work of bringing them to this point, so that it didn't feel forced or rehearsed. Just very natural, and the moment of Tara forgiving Willow was incredible - and yet, I liked the cute little ending of the chapter, with Tara jokingly (though no doubt sincerely too) paraphrasing Willow's own words. Very cute and funny, without undermining the seriousness of what they were saying just a moment before.

I sing a song of Gay Now,
Her talents bold and bright.
Our girls have come out to play now,
'twas a wondrous, wonderful night.


First of all, girl, I am so, so happy you wrote this; that you're sticking with this. When the words don't come tumbling forth and you have to work, work hard and in frustration, to wrest the story from your psyche...and you do it--that's something to be proud of. I guess what I'm saying is...Rock on, good scribe.

OK, so the update...First of all, I love that Buffy gave us the intro to this section. It made perfect sense, b/c she's been the connection b/w the two over an extended period of estrangement. And goddess, do you do an effective job of portraying that angst that accompanies trying to be a good friend when you truly care about both people. Yes, she's emotionally closer to Willow, but it's a tribute to her essential integrity that she didn't just "dump" Tara, or malign her in any way. I think that canon Buffy had this quality--on her good days--and I always liked it. So her motivation is good, but...WHAT TO DO? Speak up? Speak up a little? Truth with a capital T, as a wise woman once wrote? What's the best, most loving thing to do? And dang, it looks to be quite some distance from the easiest thing to do, doesn't it? That post-mortem questioning, examining the actions and their motivations...I get that, I truly do. As someone who grapples with analysis paralysis on a near-daily basis, I can attest to the fact that it doesn't make for a simple life.

As ever, your descriptive powers are fantastic. The paragraphs on Willow awakening in Tara's embrace were just so palpable. I could actually feel Tara's breasts against my back. And then I excused myself for a few moments. And then I came back. This was a great scene, Car.

And finally--their conversation, or the first installment thereof. I like that you retained some tension there (Tara's slight stiffening at the question) b/c let's face it--girls haven't communicated in a year. Yes, they're joined at the souls but even the most remarkable, resilient plants need some water. But Willow explains herself and Tara steps forward (I love their symmetry in that regard, by the way--they each take these steps forward, like that walk of faith in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, or whatever the last one was), not knowing for sure if they would find secure footing unless they stepped forward and risked it) and the move into that next place. And damn, I love this:
Quote:
Tara’s brow furrowed as she looked at their entwined hands. She looked back up and answered, “I just do. I always have. It’s who I am.”
That really captures it, doesn't it?

So good, girl, and such a satisfying read.

Mucho smoochos~

Continuing fic indeed. I like the separation of sections here. Buffy's is kind of exposition in case we forgot what's going on. Poor Buffy working with dark circles under her eyes. And the W/T part is just lovely. Sad and touching but lovely nonetheless.

Car!

What a lovely and perfect update to this story -- I loved the point of view o' Buffy agonizing over her actions. Yeah, I would have too - she was kind of harsh with Tara (but in a full-disclosure and very necessary sort of way). I think that it was important for Tara to fully understand how Willow responded to her actions, Willow was beyond devastated and how could Tara possibly understand the extent of what needs to be tended to with sweet tender Willow without understanding Willow's response -- the *depth* of Willow's response.

Buffy was great in this update -- and I think that,on her better days, in the show she had the potential to be this kind of friend. I was glad to see you capture that aspect of her... 'cos sometime it was a bit, uh, lost on the show. I am always secretly thrilled when a good story (that'd be this) captures one of the best aspects of a character.

That said -- the whole snuggling,/dreaming/waking in each others arms and Buffy's witnessing of their closeness was so sweet and tender it made me get a little teary. Ok, deeply premenstrual at the moment -- but stil. *sniff*.

Thanks for the update, Car!

This story is awesome and I am looking forward to seeing it unfold /finish.

Yay for a coming back update!!

Double, triple yay, even!

Thanks for the continued interest!!

Hey Carleen,

Glad to hear there's a chance for more on this story. It's definitely one of my favorites. Good luck with the writing process. ;-)

I'm BA-ACK!

Can you hear the ominous music?

I'm not really even entirely sure what happened there, I just sort of... wasn't around for awhile. What's it been, a year or so? Well, I'm all caught up on this fic now. You still know how to pull on the ol' heart strings, don't you, Car?

Well, much of my personal life has changed, but if any of my old friends want information about that, I'm sure you all can message me. I don't know how often I'll be on now, but I have no intention of going anywhere in the more long-term sense, and perhaps, perhaps, very soon, I'll be working on a new fic of my own - if anyone wants to check it out. I've got some ideas (and I'm looking for a beta!)

*smiles* I loved this update, Car. There was a little bit of angst, a little bit of hurt, but mostly it was just nice.

You've reminded me why Willow and Tara used to be like friggin' crack for me.

Any chance of finishing this off?

I mean "I love it when you call me baby." and cuddles is not a bad place to stop, and we can all see that they are definately getting back together.

It would be nice to see it though...

Please?

Hi Carleen. I like your new western theme lol.
I spent a while away from the KB (so long that I was unable to retrieve my old password and made a new login) and finally came back about a week ago. I was apprehensive to start a new story because I love our girls and when I find an amazing story I really get sucked in and then my heart breaks a little when it's left unfinished. Coming Back grabbed my attention and didn't let go (not that I would want it to). It renewed that special place in my heart for Willow and Tara and I can't tell you how much I love Buffy's relationship with both of them and how raw everyone's emotions are and how fiercly they love and care for each other and how you've captured the essence of love that is Willow and Tara and I guess what I'm babbling on about instead of saying is... I love your story and whenever you update I will glued to every word.

Liv
