| Cobbledstories chapter 4 . 7/4/2010
This fic is RIDICULOUSLY good. I can't remember the last time I've been so absorbed in a story. The premise of Q not being taken back by the Continuum is a fantastic one to start with, and you've just taken that and made a hilarious, moving, and gripping story. I am waiting in anticipation for the next installment! The character of Q is captured perfectly, down to the last snarky comment. There are some long blocks of technobabble and philosophy, but even though I normally have a short attention span, I was never bored by these passages for a minute. Everything is truly interesting, and I find myself laughing out loud at Q's mistakes and insults. I love the chapter where they discuss Wesley getting stabbed with a bayonet for five seconds. Um... this is a long review. I have no idea how you're going to end this, so I'm genuinely worried for Q! In the actual episode you knew that there was no way they were going to kill him off, but here, anything can happen... Incredible job, and PLEASE UPDATE!

This is really gripping so far. The characterization is spot-on, and Q is sympathetic while still being his familiar obnoxious self. I like how you go into so much detail on all the little, mundane aspects of Q's adjustment to his new body, his misunderstanding of human social customs, and so forth.
Not to mention that the problem of rescuing the Bre'elians with the threat of Q's impending death-by-Calamarain dangling overhead is keeping me held in suspense! I like your portrayal of the difficulties of inter-species communication, and the ways that differing ethical standards can complicate everything - like the Kaeloids and their purification rituals, or Q's argument with the Enterprise crew over the morality of duplicating oneself. Very interesting stuff.
In short: you've gotten me hooked, and I can't wait for more.

Poor Q! I hopoe they can find a way to rescue hiom. Your characters are so brilliantly written and Q's transformation over the story (both learning to cope as a fleshie and beginning to cope with his impending doom) are really heart wrenching and engaging. I hope you write some more soon and look forward to reading it!
Merry christmas/Happy holidays for tommorrow!

Oh poor Q. This was so hard for him already and now it's so much worse. Poor baby. I love the interactions between Q and Picard. You've really done a great job capturing the essance of the characters. Excelent work my friend.

Okay, so here's the promised review. First, I love the nice long chapters. Second, I love that Q doesn't know jack about being human and is annoying as shit about it. In many of these stories he remembers how to be human but this doesn't really gel with canon, I think.
I also really like Deanna's bits of manipulation and Wes's observations. Bravo for making me like two characters I could usually care less about. Great story-I really look forward to the next chapter.

Yay! I love this story so much. It's so political, but with all this angst, too... and my cousin tells me that I'm a sadist for loving this sort of had-a-lot-of-power characters that the plot keeps dumping on. You know what, so what? Right? This story just rocks. So many possibilities, from completely awesome Q-ness returned to depressing early death to utter humiliation and a life not worth living and such. Woo hoo! Plot could go anywhere.
Plus the writing rocks. And the characterization. Even Wesley, who is such a Gary Stu- somehow you managed to keep that part intact but make him less of a pain in the ass (possibly because Q is more of an ass? Heheh). And Deanna. She usually pisses me off, too, but not so much in the story... Riker is still an sycophantic jerk, though. (TNG has the best and worst characters, I swear... it's like touched by an angel or something).
Anyway... love the updates! What were you in like an internet free hole for the past er... however long it's been? lol. I could come up with some really romantic, frontiersman or humanitarian scenarios for that... hehe.
