A satisfying and hopeful ending to the story - and a new beginning for everyone..!, I was a little bit worried when you nearly killed Bass..., although it did mean that he could then hand over to Connor and spend more time with his (growing) family :)
Thank you for a lovely story :D

Oh ... Loved Aaron as Celebrant - and the Nano show - could picture that one so vividly :) so good too to see Bass and Charlie so happy ... Sigh... I usually cry at anything weddingy but this brought a smile.. :D

Connor coming into his own ( and maybe Duncan too?), will have to look up the Wolverines tho... Band's looking pretty good :)

Lol! Love Charlie's sheer grit and oomph! Glad that Miles seems to be being sensible...This was so much fun to read :D

I love multi-faceted and multi layered Bass (apex predator and alpha male but also pretty well every red-blooded woman's dream in so many ways - white knight/Batman with an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time and sex god too! :D ) he has survived - mostly intact thanks quite a lot to Charlie's advent - more trauma than many people could imagine, he is also intelligent, reads poetry, loves music, history, children and takes care of animals... Have I missed anything? Dammit there should be a lot more like him around! Well maybe we could do without the apocalypse thing... Anyway, glad they had a lovely bath etc... :)

Ok and yay! In the series I felt sorry for Jason and in a way for Tom Neville too - although he had become truly psychopathic I think, his only focus/care was for Julia and Jason - although he didn't seem to realize this in the show until it was too late... I never quite felt though that Charlie felt as deeply for him as was implied after she had to kill him - in fact her feelings had been portrayed as pretty mixed ... Anyway yay team Charloe!

Had to find out what happened here so didn't stop to review till now...poor Charlie...and so glad Bass saved her again - although didn't doubt you would come through just needed to know how...
I think one of the really interesting aspects of this show for me was the way it illustrated some of the many ways (best and worst - although mostly worst...) that people, both individually and in groups, might behave in the sort of situations proposed in Revolution. I would like to think that things would be different and that people wouldn't revert to barbarism and predation but on current evidence sadly I think the series might be pretty accurate...
Heading on to next chapter, thanks again :)

Bass repeating to her that it is him...my favorite fanfic scene ver. So well done. It gave me chills!

I have a feeling that DL really will age perfectly. I can just see him with gray in his hair and beard and it's glorious! lol
This story was great! There was a line that Connor said to Bass, when he said "I've got no dog in this race" that I just loved. You don't hear lines like that enough.

I laughed out loud at the logan echolls line even though I didn't know who that was- thanks for the explanation. I was laughing about all the bloodshed.
Loved it but was just wondering why you decided to tell the barn scene again from charlie & bass' POV...I got confused at first :-)
The entire part where they were at the camp after she was hurt and he was taking care of her was my favorite- I'm a sucker for that kind of thing.

That was absolutely awesome and very sweet. I so love this couple. I wish the show lasted long enough to develop their relationship. I know it would have happened eventually.

Great story. Thank you for blending just enough humor and sarcasm with the real story line to make it believable. Totally could see it come to pass. Charloe forever!
