| fantasy2reality chapter 15 . 4/3/2007
Well I must say that after finishing this story, that I do indeed enjoy it. It's been a while since I have seen JAG (oh i miss it so) I was in high school when it was finishing its run, and the season that you place this story. It brings back memories, both of the show and of my life of the time. But the story itself...
I know you were younger when you wrote this, and by the dates you must have been what 16? Id be interested to see how your style has increased since. When i was but a young 16 year old boy my writing was not good at all, now that im older (a college senior) its increased 20 fold lol. So if i like a 16 year olds writing, an adaptation of my favorite characters, then I would love to see what the 19 year old version of you could produce.
Sorry about figuring you drove a corolla, you did have many!
I have not really written much fanfiction myself because i know how difficult it is to create a new story of familiar characters, and to keep those characters, which we love and know so well, keep those characters in a style of thier truth so your readers will love them still. I think you have accomplished it. Not in every aspect, but in a overall ingeneral. The thing i do enjoy most though is that the areas i did not agree with, such as Mac's retirement, you gave a very coherant reason as to the why you made it so. Thank you for fantastic run of the JAG rhealm, and i do not see it beyond the reach of belasarus himself, remember the episode where mac and harm relived their lives, in possible different futures and pasts? the one at the chinese dinner with the fortune cookies? I think this could fit in well.
Thank you again for a fun read, helped me through a insomniac night, and i have but now had a chance to finish it. Hope that you get a chance to part from your evil college writing and grace us with a new story to enjoy. Do you have a fictionpress? I have the same sn there as well. Hope to see somthing from you again soon!

cant say i didt see the wanted relationship from eric coming but im glad it did. those two would be good together, though her and clay are a nice fit too, since they are so similar i suppose. hope you dont just have her skip town and not tell him about why and what happened!

ah, a third corolla, and a dark green one this time, its official you must drive one, and ill bet its dark green and you love it intensely. now, as far as the story, as it has been throughout i love it, its a great story, well crafted, and the details fit together very well, i am enjoying it alot so far, and its almost done! oh no!

I really liked this chapter. very sad and upsetting, but very well written. I loved how you made singer a family person, with a large and loving extendd family, very nice touch.
| fantasy2reality chapter 9 . 4/1/2007
quite a good chapter. I liked how you had harm go easy on her but still ask some tought questions, very much his characters style. i love how you do your work, i will definately have to check out your other stuff as well, on to the next chapter!
| fantasy2reality chapter 8 . 4/1/2007
oh thats just cold, how harm turned on his own future daughter! just cold indeed. i still like how you have it all playing out, and i cant wait to see how the cross goes!
| fantasy2reality chapter 7 . 4/1/2007
what can i say? loved this chapter too. you are very good at capturing these characters we know so well. The character of grace, is she like you? I know we all write ourselves even if we dont intend to, but since we have a blueprint for the characters we write, i figured the one we didnt came from you. That true? Oh and i saw another carolla, erics car and the one from chapter 2, is that what you drive? and btw, do you intend to write anything else, anything recent, i see now that this from about 3 years ago, and now i realize there is a good chance you wont even get this feed back im reading! you might have left this endvour all together! well crap.
| fantasy2reality chapter 6 . 4/1/2007
ah, a very funny chapter, some very humerious encounters. especially loved the one between mac and harm and the maxi pads, very nicely done.
sergi huh? so thats your type?
very interested to see how this singer angle plays out. kinda figuring that she will be sent back to the future before she is able to tell singer, or anyone else, what happened.
oh, and what happened with sergi anyway, he came to see harm, then we are at the office, what happened with that encounter?
| fantasy2reality chapter 5 . 4/1/2007
oh, another question popped up while reading this chapter, what time of year is it in 2002? is it just after halloween, meaning that she went back in time exactly 18 years or so, or is it a different time of year?
great work on this chapter as well, cant wait to click the button to see what happens in the next one! glad i dont have to wait a week!

"Harm had carefully left out the part about her possibly being genetically linked to him and her claims of being from the future."-this made me think, wouldnt the CIA have done a paternatiy test, just for the sake of argument, since harm and mac were already there? just a thought...and never mind its later in the chapter that is brought up! lol
still very much enjoying myself, and hey, look, its alreayd 3:31! my how the night flies when you having fun. i wonder how long this episode would be if it were actually made...
| fantasy2reality chapter 3 . 4/1/2007
Decided on a little more indepth feedback on this chapter, since the real plot has not taken off!
"But she’d also been taught that if something was happening that couldn’t be explained, the U.S. government probably knew what was going on."-I love this line! Its hilarious, and true.
One thing i was thinking of while reading this, and this is because i am not sure when you wrote this, is the love afair that Mac and Webb taken into a account in this story? wasnt sure if you wrote this before that happened or not. That and the actual JAG character Grace, was that a coincidence or is that character taken into account in this story as well, her and that little girl that Mac once took care of.
Besides the questoins, i just wanted to say i am very much enjoying the story, helping my night go by so fast (which is a good thing because I am very bored) so thank you for the interesting reading, and the blast from the past...i miss JAG.

Very good, and most unexpected. Sort of reminds me of that episode where they were all around a table having dinner celebrating some thing or another, the one with the fortune cookies and the looks into possible pasts and futures, is that the sort of thing you have going on here? Very interested to se how it plays out.

Well I love what you have done. I love the breaks that you have, very much akin to how the show was run. I also think you have done a good job capturing the characters, even if for me its hard to see Mac as a retired housewife. Though i guess 16-18 years from the end of the show she would be, at that time they would be about 50 wouldn't they? But their personalities definately shine though and i enjoy is, and yes lets forget about the last two seasons, they were horrible, very anti-climactic as well. So well now I am hooked and will have to read the rest of this story! Must see how it plays out!

THis was a really great story. I was going to read the sequel, when I realized I hadn't read this story yet. I am glad I did! It is fabulous! I am off to read the sequel.
