You write every character so well this felt like a reunion with Torres and Locker.
And the dialogue between Callian is witty and intimate, but not cheesy, exactly as I always hoped and expected they would talk to each other if they ever got together. Also, exactly as I like it. Ah, you never disappoint!
Still in fear of Kline, though.

Well, of course Cal would consider throwing away the Waterpen Alec gave Gillian. That made me laugh :)
And the sex scene was amusing as much as decent, you know, classy.

Oh, I already love Moritz!
It's been ages since I wrote here, and now I have to catch up! I'm first going for Shattered and then for Journey. Ah, sorry, I have no shame. But I'm catching up
(As always, perfect characterization and effective storytelling, your trademarks. Should I be worried about Klein?)

Just want to say love this story and hope you keep going with it!

Yikes! I thought I was getting better at checking in here but clearly, I'm still a slacker.
Loved these last two chapters, GR! You write these two so freaking well and it makes me miss the show - and yet not because I know that whatever they'd come up with your story would be... SO. MUCH. BETTER!
I love the intimacy you're creating here and not just the physical inimacy but the deeper intimacy that you're creating just in their conversations. You. Rock. (as usual, lol)
I can't wait to see what he's going to show her, lol.
(and I'm seriously hoping that Cal's dream in 26 isn't the least bit of foreshadowing, lol.)

Your making me hate the fact that Lie to me never got a fourth season! You could have totally written all the wonderful Cal and Gillian scenes! Their conversation about marriage and love was the most incredibly written dialogue about that topic I've ever read, especially when Cal say he can see it on her face all the time!

" I liked you long before I loved you and I loved you long before I finally had the guts to tell you" What a stunning phrase one of so very many in that most beautiful of chapters. Many, many thanks for writing and posting xxxx
Honestly, I say it so many times I know, but everytime it's the are so, so accurate with the characters. Their nuances, their behaviours, the dialogue that you put into their mouths. Every chapter pulls you in and holds you there wishing that it never ends. Points have been raised and discussed now and there is no unringing that bell. Cal reading to profess his true feelings for for the time being at least being a little more guarded. Maybe the after lunch treat that Cal has in store for her will bring her nearer to clarity;)
Ria and Eli still looking after things back at the mother ship too. Interesting to see if that develops further;)
Many, many thanks once again my lovely xxx
Lots of Love and Best Wishes xxxx3

LOVE the way the story is going, but can I say that this is my favorite part?
"You say it so easily."
"I like saying it. 'Cause I mean it and I want you to hear it."
"It's not that..."
"That you don't love me too," he finished for her. "I know. Both of us know that I can see it."
Gillian bit her lip, not sure what to say. Maybe that was a little too much honesty for her.

So happy to find the mail alert for this in my inbox! :-)
Again, you're doing a great job at keeping this story going now that Cal and Gillian are in a relationship. It's a very important turning point where lots of fic unfortunately "jump the shark", but this one actually got better. :-).
Love all the fluff and the sex. These two are so freaking hot together, no wonder they can't stop touching each other! :D
The conversation in the restaurant was particularly interesting. I appreciated Gillian's willingness to explain to Cal why she hasn't said "I love you" to him yet, it makes sense that she would be extra cautious after what she went through with Alec and Burns. Of course she would need more time, I actually always thought Gillian (from the show) had as much issues with having a healthy relationship as Cal did. Not that we saw much of her love life outside her marriage or the whole Burns fiasco but still that always was my impression.
["Like you walking Moritz at six in the morning when I can't get out of bed. Or thinking of fastening my seat belt on the plane before we land. The way you make love to me...those things mean something."]
WORD! That's so very true. Words can be ephemeral, actions are what really matters.
I'm loving every step of this wonderful, tortuous journey of theirs. At this point I don't ever want the story to end! :-)
Love that Cal changed his mind about the casino and decided to take her somewhere else. But now, of course, I'm dying to know what his plans for the evening are so please update as soon as you can! ;-)

What I really love about this story is that you created a new universe for Cal & Gillian, and yet, what they do and say is always in character. What I like about this chapter (aside from everything, lol):
- That Gillian can't keep her hands off Cal.
- That Ria knows what is going on and that you let Ria and Eli have some fun, too.
- That Cal knows Gillian loves him even if she can't say it (yet).
- Jealous Cal ;)
- The last part when they are in the restaurant is just... perfect. Especially lines like this: "I liked you long before I loved you, and I loved you long before I finally had the guts to tell you." or "Everything was touching a nerve now. But that was the thing with the truth. It peeled off layers you wanted to keep on for your own protection."
I was totally surprised that Cal brought up marriage and I have no clue where they are going, but of course I am veeery excited to read what happens next.

Awwww... The whole conversation between Cal and Gil it's lovely... I know Cal'll be patient. And Gill will get there... God! Are they gonna take a ride on gondola?
Thanks luv for this!

Awesome! I love this story. I hope next update will be sooner. Please. Pretty, pretty please.
| jenron12 4/8/13 . chapter 27
I really enjoyed the part when Gill explained it's the little things that matter - like walking the dog at 6am or fastening her seatbelt on the plane. Because good God, is that the truth. And as much as Cal wants her to say I Love You, I know her explanation made them both feel better about the why she hasn't done it yet. This was one of my favorite chapters yet! Excited for the next. :)

Hmmm...Stratosphere, maybe? Guess I'll have to wait and see. Nice chapter, lots of honest emotion. Poor Gill, twice bitten...
