Reviews for Old Soldiers Never Die

This is the kind of story that makes you smile and cry and end up doing both at the same time. It's sweet, quirky, detailed brilliantly in unexpected places, and just about the only ending that feels right. Thank you for writing this

Congratulations on penning the first fanfic (out of many, beleive me!)to reduce me to tears!

This is really powerful stuff, and I love that you got away with writing it in the second person. You have told us so much about the crew post Serenity and in such an elegant, economic way. The children I work with are always being taught about 'show not tell' in their English classes and this is a perfect example. Not to mention heartbreaking... but ultimately uplifting, hence the tears *sniff*

I'd quote my favourite bits but there are just too many of them to list, although the last two lines deserve a special mention; at once gut wrenching and life affirming. A perfect ending to an extraordinary piece of writing.

"I don't know what he called them," you say, looking at the dinosaurs, realizing their names might be important.

River gives you the smile that is just for you. "That's all right. I do."

These last lines killed me. I can really see Zoe freaking out because she doesn't know the dino's names. Aww.

Ok, I liked it. Sappiness and all. It would be nice to see things played out this way. You ought to continue with Zoe's story.

Thanks for the story.
