I have just started reading the Thunderbird verse and am really intrigued by this story. Knowing that Scott's mother is indeed dead, I can't wait to see what is happening-is Scott being mind controlled or is it something more innocent. I look forward to finding out.

Interesting story, very well thought out and plausible. I liked that you made it very easy to figure out what was going on; too many stories that deal with co-existing versions of the same character(s) are not structured well enough to keep it clear who is who. You did an excellent job.
I also find it plausible that the 'alternate Tracy family' ended up with a similar Tracy Island. As Jeff and his wife aged, as many immensely rich families they would look for somewhere to live that would keep them as private as possible and out of the public eye. It also gives them a wonderful place for the whole clan to gather for special occasions.
I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.
Thanks, Beth Palladino
P.S. Despite a few little grammatical boo boos, I'm impressed with how well you write in a language not your own.

Phew! For a moment there i thought you said you were gonna have 3 scotts & virgils, THAT worried me, jezus, that would be confusing...
Anyways, cool story.

I'm really sorry for not reviewing this earlier, but I wanted to take the time out to completely finish reading it first!
I think that a really good AU story does two things - it stands up as a story in its own right, and it takes an old concept and makes it seem new again! This story was wonderful. My favourite part had to be when Scott and his counterpart ended up talking about Thunderbird One, but I also love the scenes between Scott and Joyce. I think you've written her wonderfully, and I wouldn't change a thing.
Technobabble IS wonderful, isn't it? ;) I love how everything can pretty much be explained through Quantum Mechanics.
That said, I'm looking forward to your next story with John! :D

A consistently very good read! It must have been hard for Scott and Virgil to let their mother go again. Thank you and I look forward to reading your next story:)

I thought if Boomercat liked it, it must be a good story, and I wasn’t wrong. I love ‘alternate universe’ stories and this was a good one. Looking forward to reading the sequel.

Ah! Very nice, very nice indeed. This story gave me a reason to check ffnet on a daily basis. I really appreciate your willingness to post on a daily basis. The story was very nicely balanced. I loved the idea of multiples of Scott and Virgil. My only disappointment, as a Gordonphile, was that there were no multiples of Gordon. Six or seven would have been good. I hope that you are a fast writer, because I am very much looking forward to your next story.

Great story! I like how you ended it. So now the other Jeff might start an International Rescue of his own - that might be interesting. Pity he's destroying the gateway as he could have nipped across to IR Tracy Island and asked the other Jeff for a few pointers and what pitfalls to watch out for. It would make an interesting story if you did one set in the parallel world exclusively, how there International Rescue comes together.
I look forward to the next story. Hope you don't keep us waiting too long.

It's been a long time since I eagerly checked for the next installment of a series.I sure did with this one. Okay, I'm a Scott fan. I really liked what you did with the character in the beginning of the series. It showed a vulnerable side to him that isn't often seen. And yes, I think that his mother would be his weak spot. You didn't stumble over a bunch of technobabble in explaining the 'gateway'...thank you. I have to admit that I was a little disturbed by the two Scott's and two Virgils occupying the same dimensions, then I remembered from my life long love of Star Trek that it isn't two individuals occupying the same dimension,but the same time lines. The differences in the two Jeff's was good differences that Joyce's death caused in his/their personalities would be starkly different. Okay,the only thing I really saw wrong with the whole story was the absence of John (as you mentioned)and the minor rolls of Alan and Gordon. They got their mother to safety. I think they would hide her and then go back and kick some butt at their older brother's side. All in all though, I really enjoyed this story and look foreward to seeing more stories from you. Thanks for entertaining me!

It must have been really tough for Scott having to do CPR on his own brother. I'm glad everyone was able to back to their own dimensions in the end.

This last chapter was great!
You didn't leave anything to the imagination of the reader, but tied all the ends together perfectly.
I must say that this was the best science-fiction story I have ever red. You made me think that gateways and different dimensions are real. It all sounded so believable, even more through the WRC stuff.
All in all, this story was excellent!
Keep your good work up! I'm looking forward to your other stories!
| Claudette chapter 10 . 11/30/2004
nicely finished & ends tied up. Well done. It would be good to read your other stories. hope you don't keep us waiting too long.

Sorry that I haven't reviewd earlier, but I simply hadn't the time to read your story until now.
Good action in this chapter, not too much details, just the basic things. Excellent!
I'm glad that everything is going to be okay for the boys and I hope that Virgil gets better soon.
Well, I'm taking off to fly to chapter ten now.
