One of the hazards of infrequent postings is that I need to go back and read the story over so I am not too lost. That works well for a short story, but with chapters that are themselves novella length at least...well it takes time to get caught up. So on with the review. I think you did a great job with Graham as a baddie, but your treatment of the MI6 agent and his family... Well it gives me the heebee jeevies. I may not sleep tonight. Beckmann playing (mostly) nice was also well done.
I really look forward to reading more.

This has been an excellent story. Very well done! Please keep the updates coming!

I think that you like many writers cast Chuck as to compliant. He is the intersect and a US citizen. He has a certain amount of leverage and a few constitutional rights. Where's the Chuck who stood up to Walker and Casey in "Pilot" and said Hey I'm the Intersect, you need me?

Wow...theres a lot here I want to cover, but first let me say how glad I was to see an update. I was just thinking about this story the other day and wondering if it was dead, when the new chapter popped up.
Youve definitely succeeded in making Graham a darker, far nastier villain than I was expecting. That was actually a pretty uncomfortable scene to read, but I have to give you credit as a writer for making me care about characters who were only in the story for a short time, and were introduced specifically to die...well done
I do like the continued evolution of Chuck as a character as he grows up and gains a bit of an edge. The Chuck in this story seems like the type of character who dosnt like the spy world, but is willing to do whats required to survive and complete the mission. I see this version of Chuck as a character who wouldnt kill needlessly, but wouldnt shy away from killing if he felt it was necessary.
That being said, you alluded to the idea of Sarah possibly being ordered to kill Manoosh even if he was innocent. You can argue thats something Sarah might be able to do, but I cant see Chuck being okay with that under any circumstance. In fact thats the kind of thing I think would strongly test their relationship.
Sarah and Ellies conversation was well done as well. I like that youre addressing the toll that experiencing that kind of violence would take on a personas mind. Its not a direction many authors take in their stories.
The other strong moment in that section of story was when you had Sarah talking about killing someone by banging their head on the ground. Even more than the mission she flashed back on, this stuck out to me, because its such a brutal description of violence...Much like biting or eye-gouging, its the kind of thing you could imagine someone doing in a real life-and-death struggle.
...overall, a strong chapter, and definitely worth the wait. Looking forward to the next one

Massive update but I loved it! :D
The Graham segment was not dark, it was gruesome! Killing the MI6 Director's family was heartbreaking! All for a NWO! Graham's day will come. Count on it!
My fav part was Sarah's conditions and the threat to GB! GB needs to take Sarah seriously because she'll follow up on her threat! Mercy! :O

Monstrous as usual. Excellently done as usual. Can't wait for the next one as usual. Keep up the great work!

Wowee, that was quite some chapter, with so much in it. I'm very sorry that you've been so unwell and I've missed this story, as I consider it to be one of the best (and best written) Chuck fics around. Because of the hiatus, I did go back and skim many of the first 7 chapters to refresh my memory and I feel pretty up to speed again. I really liked it when Sarah introduced Chuck to her/their safe house and hidden accounts. Graham certainly seems to have gone loopy, but in a very nasty and unsavoury way - I hope he gets his just desserts soon, but I suspect that you are going to give us some more of his dastardly deeds first. I also enjoyed Sarah's and Chuck's meeting with Beckman, which was rather satisfying; and Sarah's discussion with Ellie was nicely done too. Hurry back, please.

This just gets better! Thanks
NB: As far as English not being your first language, I can assure you that your English is better than most of the writers on here who DO have it as a first language.
I loved the evil demented Graham, but then it matches my own image of him ;)
BTW: How did you come up with such a clever surname for Hannah? ;) It was actually a lot more clever than what most create for her.
The Christmas flashback was dark, yes, but moving and built Sarah's back story quite well.
Nice way of bringing in Casey's family too.
One niggle, perhaps something like DARPANET may have been better, as ARPANET was an actual development in the '80s
This is a great story, looking forward to the next chapter, Thanks

Long but great chapter. My favorite was Sarah staying toe to toe with Ellie. A lot of fics always have Sarah back down when it comes to Ellie.
They handled the mission very well I thought.
Glad the general opened her mind and realized she has an awesome team and she shouldn't break them. Thank you!

Great chapter, keep up the good work.
| atcDave chapter 8 . 5/14/2016
Thanks for a nice loooong update!
Graham certainly makes a good psychopath.
I thought the real highlights of the chapter were the Sarah/Ellie talk and the final discussion with Beckman.
Minor thing, would shorter chapters make it easier to update more regularly? As a reader I can deal with it either way, but you sure do a lot of work for each update!
Ultimately I'm happy just to have you still at it, so thank you!

So glad you updated this was the first story I read so I'm really happy you updated. Really good update keep em coming!

Nearly forgot about this story it's been that long haha. Don't really like chapters where authors put to much stock in Ellie's opinion on things. Where she constantly feels she needs to know everything and is always demanding and acting like a spoiled brat, when she doesn't get her own way. I hope we don't see too many Ellie heavy chapters in the future. Apart from that I enjoyed the rest of the chapter. I look forward to more

Why couldn't that last scene have been cannon? About time Beckman got knocked down a peg.
