this is one of the best post-rescue fics out there. as well as one of the best sawyer/kate fics on the site.
stupid jate brigaders complaining about skate, too: can't they read the dates on the fic? back then nobody knew what the end game ships were going to be. so annoying. at least it boosts review numbers.

Your writing is pretty good. Sawyer is portrayed accurately but Kate is a little out of character in my opinion.
Maybe you loved Sawyer more than her ;-)
But even I think their characters were supposed to be good friends,not lovers.
They always gave me that vibe.
Thanks for writing.

Sawyer and Kate were better suited as friends,weren't they?
They were too alike in their worst sides,their affair never moved beyond the mutual attraction...Sawyer seemed to be the easy option to Kate,not the one who she really wanted.
She simply tought that she wasn't worthy being in love with Jack. She was scared to hurt him,but she ever loved Jack.

It's clear as day that Kate was never in love with Sawyer. Their bond was pretty superficial,and their attraction immediately faded. Poor Sawyer,he was almost her footstoll,her doormat,but she never looked at him in the way she looked at Jack.
They simply don't belong together.

You're a good writer but basically Kate and Sawyer don't belong together.
In my opinion Kate and Sawyer together didn't ever work. They can't grow together,they remain the same weak and selfish characters because of their background.
Sawyer is always so jealous of Jack in the canon,the complex of inferiority brings out his worst qualities. And Kate never proves to have romantic feelings for Sawyer.
| Guest chapter 1 . 5/22/2016
Kate and Sawyer have a connection because of their common background,but they don't work as pair. Kate didn't ever want a romance with Sawyer. They're cute as friends,and their friendship is a worth too.
The romance between Jack and Kate lasts for 6 season,behind almost all their actions(right or wrong) was their love. True love.

Your Skate fanfics are the best ones ever. I saw another user suggest that you write a post season 6 Skate fanfic, and I would be seriously obsessed with it. No one can write Kate and Sawyer like you can, and every Skate shipper needs to see them end up together after the finale :)

Leah Kate, I was a lurker way back when you first published this. I would eagerly wait, day by day, for your new chapters, as if they were a TV show I was hooked on...like Lost...
But I came back a few days ago, nearly a decade later, and without my huge crush on literally both Sawyer and Kate...and your work is still amazing and enticing and better than any other novel I'm reading right now. So, very belatedly, thank you, girl, I still adore you.

Great start to the story! I watched Lost five year ago and now doing a binge watch of all the seasons again. Loving it so far. Love the characterization of Sawyer. Typical Southern bloke. :D

Thank you for this wonderful journey. I'm ship glad to have read this.

I'm glad I've found this fanfic. You're a remarkable writer. The fact that ten years later, this is still being read is proof enough. I'm convinced that you're my favourite author for Kate and Sawyer. I love what you've written for them. It works for them, both as individuals and as a couple. Great writing! Very perceptive of Kate's as well as Sawyer's characters. Great job! Do write more about these two.
Also, do the Skate fans a favour:
Write about what transpires between Kate and Sawyer in post-series, post-season6 Original Timeline, would you?
I truly believe and know that they do end up together, off the island. After all, you can't just forget six seasons worth of chemistry and connection. I'm sure only you'd get it right between them. ;))
So, what say?

That was a very good piece of writing. I have to say in the beginning, I thought it was a little too fluffy for my taste, especially the first few chapters. What can I say, I like dark, way dark. Especially regarding characters with such a troubled past.
The more I read it though, the more addicted I became. I found you wrote with great subtlety, and most plot twists were unpredictable (Well, except for Jack coming in to fix Kate's arm, that one I foresaw with great delight). I loved the chapters with Jack and I'm very grateful for the way you wrote him. Like a good guy who's just hopelessly in love with another man's girl. I get tired of the constant Jack-bashing in Skater's fictions.
I was also amazed of how much I laughed reading this, some of Sawyer's lines were just priceless... "A hot twelve-year-old boy", so callous, easily offended and clumsy, you made him very endearing.
If I had only one criticism, it would be the obvious vulnerability that Kate shows from the start, that bewildered me little. Like the fact that she constantly looks down. I have a hard time picturing that. However I liked what you did about Kate's past story, I think you narrated it perfectly. Of course there comes a time when you can't indulge such vagueness and the reader wants you to take a stand (but I'm reviewing this now that the show's over, so I know that we never learn everything about what happened to her, instead we get appalling flash-sideways that makes you wanna throw your TV out the window) for the purpose of your story though, you narrated it wonderfully. The choice of reported speech was damn near perfect.
Also I'm amazed by how little violence they display in 40 chapters, a little surprised I guess. But as I see it, you chose to focus on the psychological violence, without insisting too much on it (since there were a lot of cute moments). Actually the thing that strikes me the most is that I've just read an entire fic that was basically two people cooped up in the same place with very few external characters... and I couldn't stop reading. Bravo.
PS: I can't wait to read what you've done with the sequel. And I will, that's the beauty of discovering Lost after it's aired.

I've never been a fan of Skate fanfiction just because I think it's really hard to get these two right. But you did it. I think you got the characters just right. I always thought Kate and Sawyer are too much alike and it would be really hard for them to be together. They are a really interesting duo and, if done right, the story could be really great but if done wrong, it's just crap. Yours is really great, so far. I'm on chapter 12 right now and I'm loving it. Thank you for writing it. Great job :)xxx

If you are who I think you are, I just wanted to tell you that you are such a talented writer. Your fictions are exceptional and you should, please, never stop writing.
