Thanks for this story. I liked the concept and I like the slow way they eased back into one another. I loved their family and the way it brought everyone closer.

PostPosted: Mon Jan 05, 2004 3:59 am 
I hated to see this story end. It’s not that it ended anywhere other than where I had planned, it’s just that I’ll miss the writer-reader dialogue that has been so enjoyable.



thebardgirl - Thank you, and you’re welcome. It’s been a fun ride and you were always consistent with the feedback.



russ - What can I say? Your feedback blew me away. It’s okay that you missed a comment or two in the last chapters. You more than made up for it with this last lengthy observation. You had a positive comment for every aspect that I’d hoped would reach the reader. The photos were a risk (didn’t want to be overly cute), but I’m glad you felt they enhanced the story. Thank you, again, for taking the time to give me your thoughts.



Marilda - I’ll miss your immediate feedback. It was dependable and positive and addictive. I don’t know if the ending was perfect, as you say, but I’m glad you weren’t disappointed.



Dazed and Confused83 - Again, I’m so glad the snapshots were effective in all the right ways. I don’t know about a sequel, but I’m very flattered you think I’m capable of writing one. Thank you for the super feedback.



burtonreid - I love that you became “absorbed” in my story. What a great word and just what I was aiming for. I, also, had to brace myself for the emotions I was about to write as I was writing it. I pushed the angst to my own very limits before letting up and then just releasing the story to the mutual love and attraction of Willow and Tara. This story, despite the emotional roller-coaster, was a joy to write. It felt very empowering being able to write a fictional piece that set something right that I felt was made very wrong.



JustNicks - Yay, you like the photos. I was kind of worried that it would be perceived as too cute. I had these images so clear in my mind, there really was no option of leaving them out of the story wrap-up. Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful thoughts on my story.



Renee85 - Thanks for popping in with the great comments and thank you for reading!



willow fan7 - Wow! So glad you liked the end of the story. I don’t know if I would call it a “masterpiece” but I’m happy as hell that you did. Again, it’s gratifying to know everyone seems to like the use of pictures. Thank you for taking the time to share your marvelous thoughts on my story.



Grimlock72 - Yeah, that Giles pictures was a peach, wasn’t it? It’s very possible that each woman may have nightmares of what they witnessed before re-connecting, but that’s not the direction I wanted to go with the story; mainly because I know my limitations at describing violence and mayhem. I mostly wanted to explore the psychological aspects of bringing these two destined lovers together. I’m sure both women will be haunted by past experiences, but now they don’t have to handle it alone. Your comments have always been insightful. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts along the way.



Arwen276 - Yes, joy of joys, our lovers were finally reunited for the first time. I love that you loved the Kodak moments. I can just see the Scoobies screwing up and doing that to Tara’s belly by mistake, can’t you? You put it so well when you said you were sad to see it end but that you wouldn’t have it any other way. Me either!



TaraBaby77 - Thank you for the glowing feedback. The togetherness is amazingly beautiful because they’re an amazingly beautiful couple.



BFR from Paris - Thank you for taking the time to comment on the fic. So glad you liked it.



irishlassie101 - Thank you for reading the story and calling it “beautiful.”



YMKA - I don’t know if there will be more of my stuff posted on the Pens board, but I’m thrilled you took the time to read this one and also took the time to comment.



Tempest Duer - I love that you love this story. The baby went a long way toward bringing these destined lovers together. I hope the emotional pain wasn’t too painful and the sweetness not too sweet.



so why so sad - You’re lucky to have read this? I’m lucky to have readers like you who are so kind when sharing their thoughts. I’m gonna miss reading great feedback like yours!



xita - It’s interesting that you felt I eased the lovers back together when others felt it was rushed and many felt I didn’t move them back together fast enough. I thought I “eased” them back together as well. I appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts. Thank you for reading my fic.

So it's final chapter time already. Well, fine. Anyone familiar with my political views knows that I've had to learn to live with disappointment. Wink.



Doesn't mean I can't go kicking and screaming the whole way.



Lovers4ever, you know how much I enjoyed this story. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to put in on the board for us.



Quote:
Each was subconsciously waiting for something, a sign or a feeling, that would signify this union was genuine and not formed out of love’s habits.




I'll miss sentences like that. You have such an enchanting way of expressing your characters' thoughts and feelings.



Quote:
Willow took the proffered tissues and tried to de-goo Tara as best as possible, although her hands were shaking slightly.




And I'll always have you to thank for the image of Willow de-gooing Tara. It really was a sweet moment; innocent, but there's so much promise and desire that lie underneath.



Quote:
"There is something else important about this baby I haven't told you yet," Tara said...



"Her mother is crazy in love with you."




Wow. I was impressed with your Tara for saying this, for making this move. I found it refreshing to have their love admitted and explored without having to wade through a ton of angst on top of a heaping helping of tears and anguish. There are plenty of fine stories around that delve into that in great detail, but I never got the feeling that your fic was supposed to be about that. I liked the pace very much, because you hit on major events and gave us glimpses into the Scooby's lives while not holding our hands, explaining the origin of the wallpaper, and then describing its pattern.



You painted such a clear picture of Willow's love for this unborn child. I got warm fuzzies without feeling like I needed to go brush my teeth. Okay, mixing metaphors, but I think you know where I'm coming from.



And holy collagen injections! The way you can describe a kiss?! "Tara grabbed fistfuls of Willow’s clothes and pulled her close. It was a dream realized." "Their mouths devoured each other, a symphony of lips and tongues and desire." Lucky, lucky girls. Yowsers.



Quote:
"Tara, you're just so…breasty. I know it's because of the baby, but I'm like a woman possessed. Is that healthy? I mean I worry that I could be a character on a PBS kids' show. The Breast Monster!" Willow assumed a low, gravely voice and continued, "Must have breasts. Breasts. Breasts. Breasts."




I bahahahahahaha'd until I lacked the oxygen required to bahaha anymore. Move over Elmo, The Breast Monster's in town. Although the marketing might be tough for, "Tickle Me Breast Monster." Then again...



The disappearing whipped cream, Tara's humming, Xanex, the collection of pictures...it all adds up to the warmth you create in this story. I also thought the baby's name and its derivation were inspired.



If you don't write another fic here it will be our loss, but we'll always be able to reread this one as it takes its place in the Completed archives, and for that I'm grateful.



Thank you again...for choosing me to beta for you. You might be able to tell from my rambling here that I thoroughly enjoyed working with you on it. Heck, if you write so much as a grocery list in the future, (and if you'll have me) I'm your girl.

I guess it's my turn to finally say goodbye to this. I didn't want to before, but now... now I don't have much choice. I enjoyed the development of the story, and the way it grew and changed. I'll definitely read anything else that you post.

Willow: Hey Buff. One more thing. Buffy: Yeah? Willow: I’m gay. Buffy: Okay, Will. Xander owes me ten bucks.

I’d like to acknowledge the latest “leavers of feedback” and thank everyone again for reading my story.



TKOLove - Okay, now would be a good time to mention that some of the very passages you enjoyed most are ones that you prodded me into adding to my original story. So, in fact, I should be thanking you for your outstanding beta-ing. Either that or we’re just deluding each other. Thank you for sticking with me from start to finish. There could be no other beta for me, ever.



allykat - Thanks for sharing that smile and your gracious comments.



Mmmm Amberhand - It is good to see the girls back together, isn’t it? Glad you liked the “photo finish” (great phrase).



Tempest Duer - I’m delighted you found the story’s development to your liking. I don’t know if I will contribute any additional posts, but I appreciate your vote of confidence.



And to TexanZeppo256, whose post disappeared under mysterious circumstances, I would like to say that I’m sorry you felt that I rushed my story too much near the end. As I said before, I had no additional time to spend exploring this relationship nor the inclination, as I felt these lovers had suffered enough. But I do appreciate the time you took to comment and the fact that you wanted me to augment the story. I consider comments such as those to be very supportive of my effort.



Thanks, again, to all of you

-Susan

Just found this story again and read it all in one sitting. Man, this thing really does pass the test of time. It was, and still is, exceptional work.



I hope that you write more, be it in the fanfiction genre or in actual original writing, because I think you have a unique voice and such a way with words.



It would be a priveledge to read more from you in the future.

I am beyond thrilled to know that kittens are still reading and enjoying my little story.

Tarebear – your words of praise make me blush. I’m glad you enjoyed the ride. It was almost painful to write that much angst but it helps when you know there’s going to be tender and loving payoff at the end. Thank you, again, for reading and sharing your thoughts.

WillowRulez – I’m glad you took the time to leave such great feedback. I, too, would love to have that Giles’ snapshot as my wallpaper. I’m not sure why I felt compelled to add the snapshots except I think we would all like glimpses of what goes on in the characters’ daily lives and know they’re okay.

Willow Watcher – It’s wonderful to me that you consider this a happy happy story, even with all the angst. These are complicated characters and I felt that it wouldn’t be right to give them happiness without processing the grief. I feel that the writers of the show never really allowed the characters to work through their grief and this was my way of working through my own grief, and then wrapping it all up in a happily-ever-after bow.

I love the kitten community and I wish you all success in writing your own love stories. (And when you do, don't forget to thank your Beta!)

Absolutly fantastic. I swear on my half eaten apple that when you had Willow "die" for Tara I was tearing my hair out and sobbing my eyes out. Great job!

Lest you thnk I wrote this and skipped town, please know that your kind words are read and appreciated. I don't visit the board as often as I'd like, but it's always a complete thrill to discover someone has recently read and enjoyed this tale. I wrote it because my heart needed things to be made right.

Thanks again.

I posted this story ten years ago and I'm still proud of how it turned out. To add a little whipped cream on this delicious happy ending, I am excited to report to anyone who is the slightest bit interested, that my beta (TKOLove) and I were married last week. It was a warm and productive writing partnership that turned into a strong friendship and, ultimately, became the love story that neither of us saw coming. :luv2

I will always be grateful to Willow and Tara for bringing TKOLove into my life, and I continue to be thankful to all who have read our story and left feedback.

I wish you love.
