7: Six of Swords - Small Steps

I thought this whole fic was excellent (especially the idea of a chapter from a UNIT soldier's perspective), but wow, I've never read a sex scene that was simultaneously so sweet and yet choked me up with sadness. That gave me so many feels I don't know what to do with them all. Amazing.

Author's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review! That sex scene was incredibly hard to write, because it was so hard to juggle those emotions. Usually, when we\'re writing sex scenes, we\'re just trying to make them hot. This was an entirely different type of challenge, and I\'m delighted to hear that the complexity of it came through. :-)

8: Seven of Swords - Possibilities

He's three thousand years in his own past, and he has so much future ahead of him. He's looking forward to it, for a change.

Loved this line. So hopeful. The whole thing was just lovely.

The Face of Boe bit was disappointing, though.

Author's Response: I ignore Face of Boe with a fierce passion, sorry. Will worry about it if/when I actually see it happen. Glad you liked the rest. :)

6: Five of Swords - Defeat

Once again with wonderful brevity, but vivid images you gave what could have been a maudlin and messy hurt/comfort scene dignity. I like that very much.

Author's Response: Wow. Thank you. That\'s the most awesome thing anyone has said about this bit. :)

4: Three of Swords - Bad Relationships and Necessary Breakups

All of it brief, but vivid and you write such dignity and intelligence for all the characters. Thanks for that. I especially enjoyed story of the UNIT soldier and his admiration for Jack, and of course Tish and Martha talking about their experiences. It's wonderful to see the sisters loving each other. Nice work.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you\'re enjoying them. :) As for the briefness, I know, it\'s kind of odd. They\'re not really stories, and they\'re not really chapters. They\'re this little cycle of interlocking missing scenes. If I do it right, they\'ll tell a story together, but it\'s really not a conventional story-telling format. Color me oddball. ;)

3: Two of Swords - Alliance

This one is just beautiful. So nice to see it all from a stranger's perspective. He's not an outsider, but he's not one of the characters we know intimately. It's like having someone say what is on our minds.

Author's Response: Thank you. :) I appreciate the feedback.
