Guest chapter 1 . 7/15/2016
Wow. Um... I feel very reflective right now. Reality is too harsh and life is too short. I was never much of a fan of Fermat or Alan really - but you gave their characters so much depth and made them so relatable and suddenly I really cared about them. I was pretty shocked (but at the same time kind of not?) that Scott had passed away so young. :'( I wasn't sure how I felt about John; it almost felt like his and Alans personalities swapped! It was unexpected but definitely a new perspective. And then there was the ending... Brains would be so proud of his son and his son will always rake pride in his father's legacy T.T

I loved the way you told everything from the point of view of just two characters, but we still found out what had happened to all the rest without it sounding like an info-dump. The only one I felt was a bit short of information on was Virgil - I guess he's running Tracy Industries?

I was struggling with John's language - yes, he's refound himself and come out of his shell, but I couldn't see him reverting back that far. The "dude" was to extreme for me.

And you have a few too many zeroes in the distance between earth and moon.

But apart from that, poignant, funny (I can so see Alan ending up as a politician!) and very believable. Good job.

WOW! I loved it, it was such a beautiful fic, especially the ending, it is rare seeing fics like this set in the future. But it made me like both Alan and Fermat more.

WOW! That was wonderfully written with an underlying sadness and regret. I was really sad to read that Scott died before Jeff but happy that John finally loosened up and began to enjoy life. Would have loved to have read more about what Virgil and Gordon were up to.

All in all that was excellent!

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

An utterly convincing look into the future, tinged with sadness and hope. beautifully written and a compelling read. Plus a perfect ending.

What an absolutely beautiful story. Poor Fermat, what a life he's had. And you even made me like Alan! GASP!

Seriously, really enjoyed this. Loved seeing what "Might be" a few decades into the future. And the ending was wonderfully done. Brains taking one last look...sigh...

Loved it!
