Wow! This story is such a thriller. I am enjoying your character development as well as all the intrigue. I wanted to review after the first chapter but couldn't get logged in for some reason, and just kept right on reading through 43 chapters. Now I managed to get signed in to review and I want more! Can't wait to see what you have happen next. I signed up for story alert so I won't miss any of the action.

"I'm already going stir crazy in here." - "stir-crazy" gets hyphenated.

"Those sheets, along with a similarly colored blanket," - I hope that blanket is the softest, coziest and warmest the US Navy has. I - and my favourite fictional people, of which Harm is one - are quite partial to just such cozy, soft and warm blankets. In fact, I get incredibly pissed-off if either I or any of my favourite fictional people have to sleep cold.
"Trish joins Frank in the waiting area, and finds him talking with a nervous—and somewhat familiar looking—young man. "You're Sergei, aren't you?" she guesses before either of the men can say a word. There is no anger or malice in her voice; and no indication of what she feels about meeting the man her son has embraced as a brother. Sergei jumps to his feet, and would have bolted for the door were it not for Frank's hand on his arm. "Yes, ma'am, I am Sergei," he replies, his nervousness making his accent even more pronounced than usual. When she first learned of Sergei's existence, she was angry—angry at the war for taking her husband from her and their young son, angry at the governments that kept him away and yes, angry at Harm for hiding the information from her until he had no choice but to come clean. She wasn't, however, angry at her late husband for his part in all of it; by the time Sergei was born, she had married Frank and moved on with her life as best as she could, how could she deny him the chance to find a bit of happiness—if indeed he was happy—when it became apparent to him he'd never make it home. And intellectually she understood why Harm hadn't told her about Sergei when he'd found him—even though she'd moved on with her life and found happiness with Frank, she would always love her first husband—Harm was just trying to protect his memory. "What are you doing here?" Trish's overwhelming fear for her son, and the fact that she's just spent several hours talking, makes her tone harsher than she intends; it's not until Sergei speaks that he realizes what it must have sounded like. "I will leave," he offers sadly and without malice, trying again to pull away from Frank. Trish's head snaps up at that and her weary eyes meet the inquisitive gaze of her husband. "Stay, please. I apologize if my question sounded harsh or abrupt; it was not my intention. What I'd like to know is how did you find out Harm was here, and how long are you able to stay?" Even the second time around the questions aren't exactly what she would have liked to have said, but this time although her voice is still a bit rough, but unmistakably non-hostile. "I am applying again for American citizenship. Mr. Webb met my plane when it landed and brought me here. All he told me was Harm was hurt, but there is so much security here it must be more than that." - AW! and Yay! I LIKE Sergei loads (though his taste in female US Navy officers needs serious work, since NO ONE goes out with someone like Loren Singer)!

"I think the difference is that someone assumes the team leaders must have an office or at least a cubby hole somewhere they call home to display it" - "cubbyhole" is one word.

"a few have nearly brought her to tears," - Were I Mac, I would have cried, not just been nearly brought to tears.

"This time Harm does still, his gaze slowly finding and focusing on his former mentor, then moving on to the others in the helo. There is no confusion in his eyes when he notices the Ranger medic; rather a smile tugs at the corner of his mouth before he winces in pain. "Can't be a dream," he rasps out, "don't dream about Rangers." That breaks the tension;" - Hehehe.
"Permission to come aboard?" he asks weakly. Startled by the question from a man who little resembles the strong, confident aviator who left his deck a few days before it takes McKnight a minute to process the question. "Permission granted," he calls after the men carrying the stretcher to sickbay, too far to see the tiny smile briefly flit across Harm's face." - AW!
"The journey to sickbay seems to take forever; with the corridors cleared of personnel it is actually one of the fastest in the history of the ship." - I wish they would award the stretcher-bearers some kind of prize for that.

"carrying full cups of coffee along with steaming blueberry muffins," - EW! I LOATHE blueberries cooked in anything; raw I LOVE them!
"Colonel MacKenzie said she could sleep either," - "couldn't sleep".
"Mac knocks on his door frame," - "doorframe" is one word.
"Todd's team constructs a make-shift stretcher with their shirts." - "makeshift" does not get hyphenated.

"Harm lets out a sigh of relief when he sees who the newcomer is. "It's good to see you, Corporal," he greets Jack. "Captain, I'm glad I found you," Jack returns. "You don't look like you're doing very well," he observes." - Yay!
Oh heck, not yay after all (after reading/realising Jack is a spy of Sadik's).

"In a way is makes it easier for Harm to locate the camp," - "In a way this makes it easier for Harm to locate the camp,".
| alix33 chapter 28 . 4/15/2010
I hope Jack went to look for Harm.
