Reviews for The Consequence Of Caring
Aileil chapter 4 . 2/2/2020
First off, I really like the practical problem you lad out to be solved. It often bugs me when space technology just sort of mysteriously works and all problems are solved by 'dispatching a maintenence crew'. Granted, that's what the details boil down to, but you added just enough in the way of 'why's 'wherefore's and 'how's to make this one read in a highly satisfactory manner. Thank you. I also like the way you identified emotional and social issues for several of the main cast that fit so well with the early days of the expedition. I appreciate your delving into the Athosian restlessness, Zelenka working on becoming the staunch No. 2 we came to know him as, Beckett getting to know people in a new light from how he interacted with them in Antarctica (come to think of it, he probably got to know several people very well in Atlantis who he would almost never have seen on Earth :) ), Weir balancing not just the 'science' and 'military' sides but also learning to build a place for the natives, etc.

All around, this was a highly satisfactory read with all the depth and facets I could possibly hope for. Thank you.

I'm going to start with the opening sentence, since it is one of the most important lines in an entire story. It should have simply been... Carson Beckett decided he was a man who believed in miracles... That's it. Short and sweet and open to many possibilities. It would make me want to read the next sentence for sure. The rest of your opening line isn't needed, it's just filler for stylistic sake.

Good starting chapter. I want to know what's going to happen next. And it was nice to see a little 'behind the scenes' of what was going through everyone's minds during that scene from '38 Seconds'.

Pertaining to Iranda, I thought the reactions of the characters were very realistic. Their skepticism and belief meshed well. This is a multi-chaptered story so the opening chapter works well for building some anticipation of what's to come, and there's a good ratio of dialogue to exposition. Your scene setting was done well because you mixed Beckett's thoughts into the opening scene instead of just re-hashing what every reader already knew (because they watched the episode).

Excellent ending, they got to talk it out without being too touchy feelly emotional. And of course, Sheppard did not share much about his life as usual. Good Job.
