I hope you will not stop with your story and let us deal with your cliffhanger to long. I think you are a very talented writer so hopefully go on and let us read more from you.

Please update soon. I hate long cliffhangers.
| Karene 11/22/12 . chapter 4
I'm glad you've updated! Great characterization and excitement!
I hope you update again soon, can't wait to see what happens next!

This is an intriging story. I've read all four installments to date, and it reads well, seems authentic, and includes Finn, one of my favorite characters. I think Veronica's reaction to Marguerite's contempt for the coffee was also pretty spot-on. She'd take up for Ned, who made it, although Marguerite had often tormented him in the past.
One thing that I found out of place was why you didn't have Finn and Vee hover over Marg. when she first arrived back at the Treehouse. They'd have been concerned, and they'd have brought John a meal as he waited. Finn might have brought George a thermometer from the lab, and seen that he, too, ate. Finny might also have cracked some droll joke to cheer them up. Granted, I have a crush on her and most of my own Fics (all in the Mature section) include her in a prominent role. (Yes, I'm male...) But don't neglect Finn; she's a very useful character, with 21st Century knowledge of some useful skills.
Like TV shows usually do, you neglected to have them reload their guns, but the fight scenes with the cannnibals were good. I might have had John make a travois to tow Marguerite home. If the going wasn't too rough, that'd take a lot of the strain of carrying her off his back. Oh: when Mag. couldn't shoot to save John, did she have that flick knife/switchblade that she stole from Avery Burton in her boot? My fics have her carrying it in a leather pocket sewn in a boot top. A handy item, especially as she didn't wear a belt knife on the show.
In one place, you used "effect" for "affect" or the reverse. Just proofread and watch for that kind of thing. But overall, you use language well and your spelling and grammar are much better than that of many Fic writers. I respect that. It should be routine, but isn't.
I look forward to your finishing this. I quite like it so far. Alas, I can't say that about 75% of the Fics I begin to read. Don't keep us waiting too long for the rest of the story.

This story began with promise. If chapter one is a true indication of how well the author can write, then chapters 2 – 4 should be rewritten.

I suspect George will regret not waking Roxton, he may have noticed that She wasn't really she. Her telling of the 'story' should be interesting.

I can't wait for the next chapter!
| rann 12/3/11 . chapter 2
A great beginning - I do hope you continue.

Having log-in issues again.
Proofread for errors like not using quotes at the opening of one sentence where needed, beginning a new paragraph when speakers change, etc. That will let us follow who's speaking better. (There are only a couple of such isolated errors.)
You had Marg. at the last with revolver in hand ready to shoot, then suddenly, she had to reach for the gun?
But I like it, overall. Post more. But cut Ned some slack. I got tired of him always being the clumsy one, the stumbler, the butt of jokes. Fix him up with Vee and give Finn some inclusion, and Challenger. Too many fics are just about M&R. (Finn was one of my favorite characters. She's usually the star of my own fics, all in the Mature area.) But all characters deserve inclusion, in the main. I hope you won't be too coy about getting M&R happily together. The show dragged out the will they/won't they theme for too long. I'd rather seem them in love and dealing with external threats.
That said, I am delighted to see a new TLW fic! I'll check to see if you write more. You do show creativity and use dialogue well. I really like this!

Whew! For a moment there I was afraid she was going to end up on the other side of some hidden door, separated from him as she was in "Heart of the Storm"! I'm intrigued to know more about the story she was reading; I'm sure it will soon become all too real to our favorite duo. Thank you for posting the 2nd chapter so soon, Leahna. :-)

I am liking this very much and can't wait to read more
| snowbabe 7/25/11 . chapter 1
Loved it. The banter is so real I can hear our favorite actors saying the words. Can't wait for more. Soon please?
| ficscribbler 7/24/11 . chapter 1
It's nice to join Roxton and Marguerite in the jungle again; nice descriptions of the setting, Leahna. Also enjoyed their mixed bickering, flirting, and watching each other's backs. I'm looking forward to the rest of this journey. :-)

I love the story I can't wait to read more.
