Thank you for this wonderful journey. I'm ship glad to have read this.
| Donna Vito Frutti chapter 20 . 3/21
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.

This is one of the best stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us and please keep writing.

| amanda chapter 14 . 4/20/2010
dude, you're killing me. it's 2am and i'm only on chapter 14. i guess it's going to be a late night!
very, very good fic _
| Delamik chapter 20 . 3/21/2010
The chief difference, of course, was the way each dealt with that past. Kate ran from hers, fleeing not only the agents who were literally chasing her, but also doing her best to avoid thinking or speaking about her earlier life. Sawyer, on the other hand, refused to budge from his, wallowing in his pain and guilt until the idea of moving beyond it was practically unthinkable. Although they both were convinced that they knew what the other needed - she wanted him to get over it, he wanted her to open up and confront it head on - they both knew that they weren't likely to get their wishes anytime soon. Stubbornness was a quality they did share.
Doesn't that just sum these characters up perfectly? The source of all their angst. Great analysis!
| Delamik chapter 7 . 3/20/2010
I love this story! I've already read it once but it was so good that I read it in one sitting. I don't think I was fully appreciating it because I just wanted to know what happened next.
So I'm reading it again more slowly... I love it! You're a gifted writer. Characterization is perfect. I love Sawyer and Kate's interaction. I love how protective he is of her!
| Dela chapter 40 . 2/19/2010
So I know you wrote this like 5 years ago but I thought I should review it anyways. It was a really fantastic story. Characterization was beautiful especially some of Sawyer's one liners! I literally spent the whole day in bed finishing this story and I'm contemplating spending all night reading the sequel! YAY I'm glad I didn't have to wait chapter by chapter!

lol, douchebag greg :) a friend of mine used to have this crazy that always hung around her, we called him sketchbag greg :D
| eti207 chapter 13 . 12/27/2009
I can't believe it. You wrote that chapter in 2005 and Skate's first time in the cages and your description are so alike. His look to be sure that, she sleeping on his chest, and her tears of joy. Beautiful! I was starting to get bored during my holidays but now I'm starting to think I won't have time to work because I'll be reading your fic! Whatever, work can wait;)
