I finally had a chance to go back and read your older stories...

This was lovely. I especially appreciate what you've done with Lennier. His "end" on the series was unfairly abrupt, but you have continued the story in a way that is hopefull and believable.

Lennier's guilt regarding the Centauri is a very interesting topic. Being an unabashed Centauri-phile, I find myself wondering what a meeting between Lennier in his new role and Emperor Cotto and *his* new role would be like. Lennier and Vir were friends. A potentially touching companion to this story could involve Vir granting forgiveness to Lennier. I believe Vir would do this- he is a kind and peaceful soul at bottom even though circumstances on his homeworld have forced him to abandon the innocence he once possessed.

But that's enough rambling, yes? Nice work!

Rereading this after discussing B5 with you makes it an even richer experience than the first time around. The juxtaposition of Delenn's guilt in regards to the Earth/Minbari war, Lennier's involuntary contribution to the tragedy of the Centauri, and Lennier giving Delenn her husband's forgiveness as only he could have done is inspired.

Wow. Loved the ending. I loved the whole story, of course, but the ending was very cool.

You handled the characters really well. I could picture them acting exactly as you portrayed them.

Great job. :)

This was a beautiful, complex story, one that leads to redemption and peace for all (of which I'm much in favor); it gave me warm feelings, and I really loved the story.

As an aside, if you are really "looking for a good time" {warm g} in B5-fandom, I recently joined a long-standing B5-fanfic list that has oodles of fanfic in its archives; and it seems to be one of the best groups that I have seen - group/B5RS/join to join it, or to take a look around.

Again, thank you for a beautiful story. :D

Wow. I feel like sheridan, you know, I don't understand half of this conversation, but I still think it's a very good take on the lennier thing. I always wondered what had become of him, if he and Delenn finally met again, and him becoming the leader of the Grey Council does make a lot of sense. As does the thought of Delenn still loving him in a way. Sheridan may not understand the way of the Minbari, but he does understand the human heart. The only thing I didn't like was what he says in the end, about Lennier staying away from his wife. He might have wished for it, but I doubt he would have put it quite so bluntly. I think, even if it hurt him, he would have tried to convince Lennier to meet Delenn.

Anyways, great story! I enjoyed it very much.

This is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. The characters are perfect. The restrained understated style is perfect. It FEELS like canon. It is so real. So beautifully written, so gripping, so moving. It has such clarity and such power.


Thank you.
