This is brilliant!
I love the episodic nature of these, yet I also love how there seems to be a greater continuity as well. In the first chapter, Matt has 'hung up his tights', but by chapter 6 he is picking up a new suit, ready to head back 'into the field' again. That's a lovely detail!
I also love how the chapters have a progression of characters - starting with an old, seldom-visited family friend who knew Matt as a child and can't see him as anything other than 'Jack's blind kid'; to the people he runs into during his day-to-day life, each with their own insights into Matt's personality and public identity; then the people that work with him, both in his office and 'behind closed doors'. I like that each person in a little more acquainted with Matt's world, a little more savvy, until you get someone who actually knows he is DD. It's as though we're gradually getting closer and closer to Matt's inner circle. 'Seeing' the incidentally moments in his life from his perspective is also wonderful. You've put a lot of effort into portraying the daily travails of a blind person, it's very convincing.
This was one of the best fics I've read in a while. Please continue, I really want to meet more characters and learn more about Matt - I notice Foggy doesn't seem to have been clued in yet, I'd love to see him as the subject of a chapter down the track!

Hah! This is a fun story. Very interesting, just seeing how Matt gets along with people in his life.

"The alarm clock sang its one note song."
I loved this line. But I've always hated that song.

This is a pleasant change to all the daredevil fighting fic.s I've read so far. I hope for another update soon

Really really good so far. Easily one of the better Daredevil fics I've read. Hope you continue to update it.

Glad to see you back, Alice :)
I really enjoy Matt's everyday life through your eyes...

Another great chapter. I can almost see Hell's Kitchen roll out before me. The baker, the tailor, the coffee shop... its all there for us to see and feel.
I like Mr. Lee, the man knows what is important in his neighbourhood. I wonder who else is privy to Matt's secret and who is still fooled by his glamour.
Keep writing, you do it so well.

A great chapter, as always. Good idea, using the tailor. Never really thought about him.

Yeah, give me that sexy Murdock-smile. I love you. This story is wonderful.

Wow, Matt with a goatee. I suck for bearded men. But he is right, you know? It could give him away when he is wearing the mask because you can see the lower half of his face.
Love to read you storys.

I've never written a DD fanfic, but I've always had a soft spot for my favorite super hero. Have been following this story for a while. Thanks for the update. The origin stories and ongoing alterego stories are what lend weight to superheroes - and yours are among the best!

Oh! That is nasty. Matt is losing someone from his childhood and with no warning. I wonder what will happen when he finds out?
You are throwing a lot of different angles out for your loyal readers to encounter, but you are also showing us that Matt's world is a very stable place. The same places, the same people he has been around for years. Yet, things are starting to change in this piece. Let's see if this is the only opportunity for change you come up with.
Love your work, kiddo.

Ah, yes. I failed to reread my own fic closely enough to find the trite "made his way" phrase. I have corrected that oversight, and hope that my readers will continue to monitor me closely that I might not commit this sin again. ; )

You are so on a roll these days and I couldn't be happier. Great story and great little addition to the universe!
I read the whole thing from the beginning just now, and I also noticed the same thing Mom pointed out in chapter 3. Funny, I've also had a friend call me on that very same thing. ;)
Keep up the good work!

There's so few good DD fic around and when you find something good it's such a treat! All of your stuff is wonderful..I don't think I've reviewed, but I should - I'm awful for that! Thanks for an update on your fantastic story!
