I stumbled upon this story late at night when I was supposed to be sleeping and now I'm right there with Katie, Teddy and Ben: I want to know how it ends too!

This story was great! I really enjoyed it! It was nice to have Newkirk be featured so prominently in it!

So many wonderful things that I don't think I could list them all, but here are the ones that I can, because they're my top favorites:
1. The way you created new characters or fleshed out ones mentioned (like Olsen). I could hear them, I knew them, and they were tangible. Their banter! And Jones grabbing Olsen by the nape of his neck and pulling him back! I was just completely in love with all of them, and Benson being so wary about the boat... Seriously, you did such an amazing job at making them, and so many, as well!
2. Related to that, the way they were like a pack of dogs, at first, all snapping and snarling at each other but still sticking together. The way you portrayed that was marvelous.
3. Newkirk's commentary (both new and old) throughout-the 'twigs' comment had me quirk a smile, and when he tried to lift Hogan, well. It was just so perfectly Newkirk, and I loved how he kept it up the entire time.
Those were my three main favorites, but the whole story was just... incredible. I so adore all your stories, but I think this one is, if not my absolute favorite, definitely among the top three.
Just a marvelous job.

Hogan losing at chess again? Sounds like the games I play with my brother, only I'm the one who nearly always lose. Great story; can't wait for more from you!

Oskar...yep, that definitely sounds like the male cats I know. Especially Rudy-Guts.

Oh thank God that's over. I mean for them, not for us. This story kept me watching and waiting all the way through, and even though I knew they'd have to get back somehow, I still had to keep swallowing my heart every time something went wrong. Your talent for storytelling is every bit as good as old sir Newkirk's... and of course the question waiting next is... umm... next?
:) Brava, dear,

Great ending. I liked seeing Baker monitor Schultz as he went to see Hogan and Newkirk, "with his very own eyes." And the month later ending put closer to everything, Now that everything is back to normal. We're ready for their next great adventure. :)

The sign of a truly great story...You get lost in the characters and can't wait to see how it ends, but when it's over you want it to keep going. This was a GREAT Story. Thanks for sharing it with us.

What a fabulous story, Zoey! Your description of Oskar was so vivid, I figured it had to be inspired from personal experience. My condolences at having lost a cherished companion. They are always with us, even after they have left this earth. Thanks for sharing him with us, and thanks, too, for sharing your creative vision in such a captivating and entertaining manner!
| Anonymous chapter 23 . 10/24/2005
Wonderful ending! You have such talent, it is an absolute pleasure to read your stories.
Now I can't wait for your next one... you *did* say this was first in a series after all!
| Nitestalker chapter 23 . 10/24/2005
I really enjoyed the reading. Glad everything worked out. Keep up the good work. I would be interested in reading some more stories. Thanks for sharing.

I wish you could see my expression. My bleary blue eyes are wide as saucers and my mouth is open in a huge "O". You transformed my little squib into - a rhapsody. Yours caught the fire and tension mine lacked, and where I told, you SHOWED. I shower rose petals upon the computer terminal. The diversion was my idea, but it was your voice, your words, your sense of story that made it sing. I wish some of your gift would rub off on me - and it's a great gift, girl! Wow! (And you added Heidi too, so the 'idea' was a joint one. Brava!)
As for that bit of praise at the end: It's not only a privilege, it's been a lot of fun to ask questions and make a couple suggestions. Benson, Tivoli, Cpl. Lyons, Jones, Broughton and Maddux will always be special. I hope we'll see them again.
