Author’s Notes: This was written for femslash100’s current prompt, fear.

Before she came to Sunnydale, Tara’s life was governed by fear. Of her father; of death, especially after losing her mother; of the rotting place inside her that was the demon part. Of the way people would look at her, if they knew about the things she could do.

It seemed silly to come to a Hellmouth to find safety. But she did. Or rather, she found love, and friendship, and the knowledge that her magic was pure. She blossomed under the California sun, and under Willow. With Willow, Tara never felt anything but safe.

For a year or so.

I love the last line, in context. It makes the rest of it seem that much more chilling.

Ahhh, I love Willow/Tara. I wish they could've had more time together. :(

I love them too - even when Willow is creepy and kinda abusive. *sniffles*

Yeah, but seeing as Willow is my favorite character, I wanted them to have time to work things out. And then they kinda did and Joss was like TIME TO DIE, BITCH
