Thank you so much for updating this excellent story! :o) I've been looking forward to more - it's gritty and violent, but much more realistic than what could have been shown on TV in the '80s. Can't wait for the continuation of the story! :o)

This is a very gritty chapter when it comes to Julie's conversion scene. It makes me wonder (and I had explored this in a fic before myself) how Julie could be intimate with Donovan later if she had been given a vision that he raped her. The conversion scenes are hard for me to read as a Julie fan (sniffle), but you write them very well. You have excellent visual description.
I enjoyed the Martin/Lorraine and the other character scene, but as you opened it you did not make it clear which of the men said what line and it was a little confusing. Also, I think it may be a formatting issue, towards the end of the Donovan Tyler scene... I think it is mostly Tyler talking and you hit the return key and started a new line of dialogue when it was still Tyler talking, kind of looked like Donovan responding but I knew it was Tyler continuing by the words. And also, I noticed a few quotation marks missing in several dialogue phrases throughout the piece. Other than these minor issues, I think you are a great writer and you will probably end up writing in the horror genre when you hit the big time, and I think you will (wink). -TamieK

Nice touch with the foreshadowing of Ruby's fate and to show us the resistance members reaction to another mother ship arriving on the scene. Interesting, I thought all the ships were the same size...

I would have to say this chapter is very twisted, but true to the statements Julie made to Donovan about her "conversion" in A.C. Crispin's adaptation called "V". As a personal preference I would rather think that her visions included being raped by men than being chased by oversized lizards down darkened corridors. (as in V The Final Battle)... And I cringe when Denny professes his desire to marry Julie. Even with what we have in the Original Miniseries, I didn't see him as marriage material, but a self-centered jerk who wouldn't make her a good husband. How appropriate he turns on her in her "vision".

This is an interesting take on Point of View within a dream sequence. The events are unexpected. I would've never pegged Julie to go after Donovan's son realistically and scenarios like this, even if it is only a dream, would have added to the tension of whatever Donovan and Julie were feeling towards one another before she was captured. So after she is rescued, I wonder if he still has these nightmares and how much he would've second guessed her (wondered if she was really converted), but never said anything all the while encouraging her she was fine and didn't seem converted. Can you trust this woman?

I love how you capture the essence of Donovan and Tyler's "chemistry" with their banter. Nicely written.

That nightmare sequence always fascinated me in a morbid way. And once I became a parent it horrified me as well as still having that strange fascination with it.
But adding Julie into the mix was a very interesting take on that nightmare sequence. It made a lot of sense, too, under the circumstances.

I never could stand Donovan's mother, lol!
Very interesting, the way you describe the beginning of Julie's ordeal. Am looking forward to, but also horrified about the depiction of what may/will happen to her next. Good job, so far.

OMG, so glad I found this fic! I loved 1980's V and can't wait to sink my teeth into this narrative.
I really like the way you've started off this first chapter.

I am enjoying your take on what happened during the second mini-series. I always felt that the book did great on the first one, but didn't explore the second one as well as it could have.
I hope that you continue to write these and look forward to more chapters. Keep up the great work!
