I love this! I don't know these characters or this fandom, but they way you write is quite enough for me. To see them clinging to each other, son holding father's hand without knowing why or being able to let go; father comforting son without knowing how...this is excellent. You took us on a journey here, one I wasn't really execting and so was pleasantly surprised by. And I am not sure I can explain to you what that journey was, except that I know thaf by the end of this chapter the characters had matured. So thank you, for this little piece of quality writing.
And thanks for following me, too! :). Happy New Year!

Another interesting chapter! Especially with outlining Lee's feelings on the physical therapy stuff and how it was difficult for him being so out of shape and all. Poor Lee. :( Also, your notion for why he got promoted is rather clever, and it was executed well. His reaction to the news that he would never fly again seemed realisitic, I think. Great all-around chapter and general story! Thanks for sharing this!
God bless you, and have an awesome day.

Aw, what a wonderful chapter! Your description of the medical stuff was awesome. Well, I'm assuming it was; I don't know anything about that kind of stuff, but it seemed accurate and convincing to me. :) Another lovely sweet moment between father and son, although a tad gruesome with all the lung collapsing yeah stuff going on (the part with drawing blood from his wrist grossed me out, haha); but you do convey emotions so well! Like that grossed-out feeling, and sympathy, and love-all relayed so precisely. Also, your portrayal of Doc Cottle seemed spot-on accurate to me, so great job with that. Thank you for sharing more wonderful art here!
God bless, and fantastic day to you. :)

Hello! First off, I'm glad you wrote this story, because I was hoping they were going to show what went on during that month they skipped, so this is great! Such a sweet moment, and it keeps them in character too, so that's great. Aw, but it's so sweet. *melts* Also, I just adore your writing style! It's candid and simple, which is refreshing, because it seems to me most stuff I read is in flowery, drawn-out language (my stuff is too), which I like, but it's just refreshing to read your more straightforward, direct style,and coupled with such a sweet moment, that basically makes this chapter amazing. :D Thank you so much for sharing!
God bless, and have a great day!

That was wonderful. I'm working on some Lee stuff myself right now.

First, loved the homage to Suess. :) LOL! Satisfying chapter as well.
| WriterJC chapter 1 . 8/19/2007
Very nice. I liked this very much. Great work with father and son.
| BSGaddict chapter 1 . 10/1/2006
Just wandered into this and realised I read it before when I was back in my lurking stage before I started posting and reviewing - I didn't realise you had written it!
I remember it because the description of Lee's experiences in hospital was just so realistic and painful, I really felt like I was there with him - unfortunately :-)
Just skimmed through it again and great insight into Lee's feelings and his relationship with his dad - you really do write the two of them well.
Are you planning to write any more of this one?
| Apollana chapter 3 . 9/24/2006
This is a wonderful story. Love the relationship between father and son. I wish the BSG portrays Bill/Lee more. Keep writing.

I do not like them
in the rain
I do not like them
on a plane
I do not like them
in an attack
I do not like them
in Lee's rack
I do not like
to see them play
but she's in my story anyway
that was SO funny,

I feel so sorry for Lee. And once again, the Adama/Lee interactions are great, very poignant.
And you know, I read this and then watched Captain's Hand again(such torment, I know). When I first watched it, I actually felt worse for Kara and thought that Lee was just being a big, whiny, passive-agressive baby. But reading this story has made me totally reevaluate the way I felt about that episode(and pretty much all of them after that).
I love it when a piece of literature can change my views on things.
And BTW-where the HELL is Kara? Why wasn't she there to help him through the mess she(even if inadvertantly) caused? Chick is starting to make me angry! :P
| Silwyna chapter 3 . 6/24/2006
I know I told you this before but this chapter is great. I loved the interaction between Adama and Lee. I really wished they had showed something like this on the show. Thank you for writing this. :)
| Ammonite chapter 3 . 6/23/2006
You did it again. This was so beautifully written. So real the way you were in Lee's head when he was working out, trying to get in shape again, what it must have been like for him. What he was thinking of Kara, of Dee, it all seemed so perfect. Even his confused feelings about never flying again.
My only comment for possible improvement is that sometimes you use more words than necessary - duplicate. It's such a common problem. One example in your last chapter: "Dee came up behind him and put her arms around him." Perhaps better: "Dee came up behind and encircle him with her arms." or "Dee hugged him from behind." I've seen other places in your writing very similar, so you might want to watch for them.
Ohh - but I love your writing anyway.

Poor Lee! You make me actually feel sorry for him. I didn't much in the show, since all they showed was Dee fawning all over him and then all over him in bed.
I like that you've managed to flesh out all the gaps from the month and help tell his story. Makes me feel like I'm more a part of the character.
Thanks so much for posting this story. I really look forward to more! *hint hint*
| JAT.NJ chapter 3 . 6/23/2006
I guess you're not having trouble posting :)
I'm glad you put this story here. I added it to my favorites.
Its such a good explanation for Lee's attitude.
