Wow. I really like his story. Great chapter. This Sarah is like season 5 before losing her memories. In cannon she knew Chuck for 5 years.
In this story they have a 10 year online relationship. That's a long time to build trust. And a long time to plan. Really interested to see if she reveals to Ellie and Devon that she is a spy, and how she deals with Casey and Beckman.

I was actually really pleased by the way Chuck and Sarah's talk came off in this chapter. Sometimes these kinds of chapters, where an author tries to deal with the whole "why dont they just talk" problem just feel awkward and stiff, but it flowed very nicely, and I feel like it fit the characters very well.
A couple of thoughts I had while reading:
First, as you begin to address the idea of Sarah being an assassin. I know the easiest thing would be to just have her justify it on the grounds of that they were bad people, and shes okay with what she did, but I really hope you play around with this a bit and how it affected this different version of Sarah
On the subject of Sarah holding things back and being secretive, I do think its important to remember conflict dosnt necessarily mean angst. Obviously a lot of why she acted why she did has been addressed by the fact that shes more in touch with her feelings, but there were other times where she did those things either because she was ordered to do it, or because she was trying to protect Chuck from dealing with things he wasnt ready to handle.
Just because Chuck is starting in a better position personally than he did on the show dosnt mean he's the guy we know from season five who can handle all the ugliness of the spy world. There should be times where Sarah's desire to protect Chuck still clashes with Chucks need for honesty.
This can be applied to their relationship as well. Clearly theyre going to get together faster here than they did on the show, but Id say you can still let them grow into the relationship. Just because theyre together dosnt mean everything should always be perfect between them...real relationships have their ups and downs (Im thinking season four style...where they were never in any danger of splitting up, but they still had their problems they had to work through)
Anyway, those are just some things to mull over if you want. This has been a really interesting story so far and Im really looking forward to the next chapter!

I really like this story idea. I've read really similar concepts in Harry Potter fanfiction before. I was a little weary when I realized how far you were going back but I think you did a really good job with it. I'm very interested in seeing more. Your writing is very good. Please keep up the good work and update again soon.

Looooved this so much! Sarah revealing her 'mission' to Chuck and was releaved that he accepted her explanation! This had to kill Sarah because if Chuck panicked and ran, she'd lose her husband! Glad that didn't happen! :D

I love the way their date started! Just the right mix of nerves and confidence on Sarah's part, and you gotta love the honesty. Keep it up!

Another solid update, I love the premise of this, and I'm really interested to see how this will diverge from Canon moving forward.

Yessss! Ive been hyping this up in my head for sooooo long and it was definitely worth the wait!
Chuck being a PI is AWESOME.
Sarah still seams to remember most things but you can tell that she is forgetting somethings, for instance, she firgot how many "first" dates she had with Chuck.
Another thing that Im glad about is that she refers to Brtce as her former PARTNER and not lover which hopefully means that she conbinced Bryce to keep it in his hands.
Any idea when we can expect the next chapter of this exquisite tale?
