Well, that was certainly a nifty change up. I thought I saw which way this had to go but you caught me standing at the plate looking, with the bat on my shoulder. Very nicely done indeed! It's the sign of a writer at the top of his game that he can credibly turn the plot on a dime and have it go somewhere else entirely. I like that the initial plans didn't work out and our heroes had to come up with a plan B.
The pay off in all of this is that it wasn't either Chuck's plan or Sarah's plan but their plan. The show was at it's strongest and most charming when the two principals worked together each contributing to a favorable outcome. As in 4th season the two of them finally...finally got to determine their own course. It is a tribute to your talent in plot composition and execution that none of this seemed contrived or forced. You even pulled off that hardy staple in Chuck fiction of Sarah explaining herself to the hero's sister. These scenes usually shade over into the ridiculous to me (Sarah regularly ate the eyeballs of people orders of magnitude tougher than Ellie for breakfast on toast) and more than a little insulting to Chuck, as though he would let Ellie's disapproval stand between he and Sarah. Not a hint of that here; very well done indeed!
Overall this is a very good and very different and creative take on the subject. You did an interesting, airtight alternate history while keeping everyone in character and spicing up the proceedings with a novel setting, very well drawn original characters and some truly inspired plot twists. To top it all off you sacrificed some of your summer leisure time to give us a conclusion that dodges a late innings bullet and delivers a very plausible happy ending that deftly leaves the door open for further adventures. It only remains to offer my heartiest congratulations to you and your estimable beta michealfmx for a brilliantly successful effort as well as my heartfelt thanks to you for spending your time and effort to offer all of us this wonderful story.
I'll just rinse out the metaphor popcorn bowl and put it back in the cabinet in readiness (and hopes) of further efforts from your talented pen. Until then:
I remain Sir Your Obedient Servant

Very nice finish. Good and original use of the bracelet. Nice to see Ellie brought in somewhat, but not all the way. Perhaps Sarah could have said that there was more but she could not say what it was, so that later on there will be no reason for Ellie to feel betrayed again. Clever to realize that being impossible to find was an even bigger flag than being found would have been. Hopefully you still have more stories to tell in this fandom.

A really lovely ending to another wonderful Chuck story. Thank you so much for writing it ... and completing it! And thank you so much for having continued to write stories about Chuck and Sarah. Maybe, one day, you'll feel motivated to come up with another. I do hope so.

I am happy that things worked out for Chuck and Sarah. But as an independent strong women no matter how much Ellie raised him I would not care what Ellie thought I would keep chuck as mine!
