Jenny, I know I've said it before but I love this story so much. At least twice a year i have to read it just to see if it is still there. And to enjoy the best story I've ever read!
I wish...there were more stories like this. But I think that's impossible because there's no one like this and there never will be.
Thank you for another unbelievable good read.

This is about to wear me out! I almost gave up on this story, but finally Starsky is remembering. Thank goodness!

Just discovered the fanfiction for this series and this story just knocked my socks off (they weren't pink )! It is one of the best, most well written fan fiction stories I have read on any site. Great job and will definately check out other stories authored by you. Thank you for sharing your talents!

Terrific story. So glad you brought Starsky back home. Would have died if you left him hanging in insanity.

Wow. Ok, I've read this a few times now, and not reviewed, because I had no idea where to start. But here goes...
It's amazing, and I think it's the best S&H story I've ever read. It's the most original plot I've ever seen, there's nothing else like it. You kept the guys in character. Your descriptions are so good that I could really visualise it all happening. It's heartbreaking in places - Starsky thinking he needs to earn a cuddle from Hutch *sniff*. And you resolved the story really well in the end. You should be so proud of this!

Wow... heartbreaking, emotional (and luckily a good ending). I love the way you wrote the characters - the worry, the friendship, the protectiveness... And the plot - all very believable and paced rightly. Thank you so much for sharing this story!

I’m shocked that this story hasn’t got a lot of reviews. It’s so incedible. This has to be my favourite Starsky and Hutch story... I actually read it a few years ago and only just found it again. I adore the interaction between the two… it’s like watching the show for real. Sorry I can’t offer any critique, but it’s perfect in my eyes.

Okay. So this story was published forever ago and am I ever glad I found it. I've been re-reading it. Stayed up until like 6am reading it the first time. Not commenting, because my words would not be worthy. This story is... god... so great. unbelievable. So I decided I HAD to comment, because, that's just what you do with stories this great. And those stories don't exactly come along every day. So anyway, maybe it's because I was a psychology major for two years, that this 'subject/plot/whatever' interests me so. But it's just brilliantly written. Can't compliment it enought.
just woah. )

I just re-read this story and I just have to say that this is my all-time favorite story of yours!
Well, so far, with your magical fingers, another favorite can not be far behind! But it's so hard to choose which one, it can change on any given day, today, it's this powerful master piece. Poor Starsk. Poor Hutch.
*much blubbering & tears*
Okay, I just love how Hutch brings Starsky back to himself and vise versa. *SNIFF* I needed two boxes of tissues and a bag of peanut butter cups to get through this. *Sighs* Poors Starsk, couldn't get any more candy... *sniff*
This is such a powerful story of loss and
re-connection. It is inspirational. Truly.
And I simply must say it again, I must, I must - I LOVE this story!

Keep wondering what had happened if Hutch had go in instead of Starsky... Of all the stories I've ever read this one touched me like no other did...
| Sora Saotome 7/26/04 . chapter 5
Wow... I finished this story over four hours ago and I'm still speechless. I know you must be tired of my reviews by now, but I'm so glad you wrote so many stories because they're all so fantastic. This, however, may be the best so far. It's like nothing...I've ever read before, in my entire life. It effects me like very few things have. You have an amazing talent and you express it so well through stories like this one. Please continue to write! I don't know what I'll do when I've gone through all of yours. I...am in awe. Thank you, so much!

I was so caught in gushing about your fantastic talent in my review of chapter 5, that I forgot to comment on something.
"Since Hutch tended to keep his feelings to himself in times of distress, it was often left to his body to ask-or rather scream-for help."
So, how long have you known my doctors? Oh, you don't? Are you sure? 'Cause that's pretty much what they're always telling me! :)
That had me laughing and crying at the same time. My doctors are constantly warning me of this inevitable result of my holding in my stress. My chiropractor always says, "It'll find its way out somehow, Tam, so you may as well choose the way." Not that I *do* choose an alternative yet, but at least I know that I should! :)
That line just struck me as so true and funny at the same time. Well done! :)

This entire story is just un-be-liev-a-ble. You are an incredible writer. You write with such clear emotion and empathy, and it is an awesome (as in "awe-inspiring," not "cool or rad") experience to read your work. I am truly impressed with your skill and creativity.
How in the world did you do this? How long did it take?
You've captured the two characters so well, and you've broken my heart in the proces. I swear, chapters two and three just about had me throwing up. I was definitely in tears, and that doesn't often happen when I'm reading. Not because I'm unaffected by the written word, but because I have such control over my pacing as I read. It's easy to turn the page or shut the book, but I always just let a movie roll on, carrying me with it. I'm impressed that you were able to make me cry, even though I *did* get up and walk away several times.
Again, unbelievable. Just incredible. I don't have anything more to say that will adequately express my feelings. Just...wow.
Are you a published author yet? If so, please let us know what you've written, and I'll go buy it right away. If not, please let us know when you *are* published, because I'm certain that it will happen. Your talent will not be long unrecognized. And we can all say we knew you when. :)
It's an honor to read your stories. Thank you for sharing.

This is some of the hardest stuff I've ever read. I reacted to this so strongly, that I've become dizzy and panicky. You've got me in tears. I don't know if you've ever been the victim of conditioned response, but you've done an excellent job of portraying it.
This is so similar to what I went through. I wasn't brainwashed by some evil doctors, but by some evil family members, growing up. I had no previous reality to go back to, so it took a long time before my reactions were normal.
Starsky's fear of punishment is terrifying. It's so realistic. The worst part of submitting is voluntarily accepting pain or humiliation. Agreeing to accept punishment on the condition that it is less terrible than it has been previously. God, that's an unbelievably broken thing to do.
You're really good at this. Too good. I honestly, seriously, need to go call my therapist now. I thought I'd done a good job of healing, but it's like you were in my head during the worst times of my life. How can you just know my pain like this?
Well, you've done something good. I'll bet that I'm not the only one who realizes that they still need help after reading your story. I don't know how long it'll be before I can read more, but I do intend to finish this story. Not just because it's important for myself that I be able to finish something like this, but because I'm really interested in seeing how Hutch helps Starsky.
You're an excellent writer. If you have endured some sort of mind control like this, then I am truly sorry. If not, then you are an incredibly empathetic person, impressively able to understand another's pain. This is a valuable skill, and you could put it to good work as a counselor or teacher.
I am in awe of your talent.

OMG. That was the best S&H fan fic I have read. It was so dark and so heartbreaking, but the way you wrote it and the ending was so great.
The characterisation is brilliant, I can really picture the characters and hear there voices. Although it is a little hard when Starsky is all wrong in the head, but I still foudn those moments brillant. Well done.
