RE: Chapter: 10
That you enjoyed the story enough to overlook the awkwardness and obvious short comings, and then take the time to tell me so is an unexpected pleasure and reward. Eight years... in some ways it seems like yesterday and in others it seems like ancient history, but then the original draft was written in ancient times when Magnum P.I. was still in production.
I received notification of your review right after I had watched 'A Winter's Tale', have you seen it? It is one of those rare Hollyweird productions that seems to transcend the dross and limitations of their making and makers, emerging imbued with a sort of magical essence that leaves me bemused instead of cynical... I guess I am mentioning this because one of the main thoughts it left me with was the wish that I possessed the talent to write a magical story like that. If I ever manage to I'll dedicate it to you and the other kind reviewers, as un-expected encouragement has a sort of 'magicalness' all its own.

I am like 8 years late, bit I still wanted to tell you how much I love this story. The characters were very believable and it almost sounded line a real episode. Your style of writing is very good and easy to read and it really helped with losing myself in the story. Although this wasn't exactly a short story, I can't help hoping it had been longer!

A great Magnum story. You had the characters so down pat it was like reading an episode but more in depth. Nice to have Agatha play a part. I enjoyed her character in the show.

LOL! The ending was quite unexpected!
Rascal, now you go write some more Magnum fic!

That was a great story! I have to confess that I don't stop by this catagory often due to the fact that there are so few new stories. Lucky day for me! I would love for you to write more! I also am a big Rick fan and I enjoyed the hurt/comfort part of your storyline!
Thanks for sharing this with us.

RE: Chapter: 3
I have to admit I am not as familiar with a lot of the background info as I should be; in fact in the initial rewrite I had TM saying he was raised in California and at the beach all the time... glad I managed to catch that before I posted it... It may very well be that I have never seen the very first episode; I know I didn't watch the show much if at all in its first season, and currently I am not where I can watch reruns - I'm overseas. When I did the rewrite I visted various Magnum PI sites on the internet to refresh my knowledge but it seems the research wasn't complete. If Stormchilde, or someone, talks me into writing another story I'll know where to come now for advice. Thanks for the kind words.

The more I read into this story, the more I like it. Great job!
I have a question though...in chapter 2, you mention the rings magnum, tc, and rick wear. you say that THREE of them have the rings, but didn't Dan Cook (season one, episode one) and Pepe (the bad guy in that same episode) have the rings as well?
| Stormchilde chapter 9 . 12/8/2006
Oh, that was marvelous! You have the characters perfectly voiced. It stays so true to the show and yet gives a depth to the characters that was missing even after five years.
You did a wonderful job of giving each one of the characters equal time. Rick, is of course, my favorite, Thank you for giving him a chance to shine.
I was so excited to find a new fic posted, I have read it quickly and now I’m going to go back and read it slowly - enjoy every sentence.
I hope you’ll be writing more - there is a terrible lack of Magnum fanfic.
Please say that you have more?
Higgins does have an answer for everything doesn’t he?
