One our soon-to-be SWAT Kats are done with all of the prep work, maybe you should write about their down time in between episodes.

Health experts do say that one should find physical activity to do for an hour for every two hours of desk work. Then again, they also say that long periods of sleep depravity is dangerous to ones mental and physical health. But hey, it's a cartoon. Thank you for the story so far. Keep it going!

Hero syndrome is tough to deal with, especially if you feel like you had your purpose stripped from you. Unfairly at that. Something to keep in mind when he flies the sky again.

Words have power. I've known many people who said that words can never hurt someone. That is wrong, because I've been on the receiving end of some very nasty words. Words can hurt, maim, and kill just as well as any weapon, the only difference is that words don't leave a direct trace.
On equal effect, words can heal and help, too. Maybe not the words themselves, but the context behind them can put a smile on anyone's face. Even something as simple as "I have pizza" can mean the difference between the feelings of worthlessness and relief. That is what Jake need the most. Not just a pizza, but also the positive aura from Chance. Good work.

It's good that you touched on Chance's and Jake's relationship a bit. I always wondered how they managed to stand each other and the show, as awesome as it was, never touched on it. Jake must be really good at engineering to build the basic structure and cock pit in FOUR MONTH. Good work.

I wish that there was an episode like this while the show was airing. Good job capturing the characters and the effort of building the Turbo Kat.

To be honest, I would have reviewed your earlier chapters if I wasn't so desperate to keep reading! It's VERY hard to come up with small, one chapter, everyday adventures, and yet you've managed now for 5 chapters! I think I've only found two or three typos (I'm a beta reader, so it's a habit to keep track) which makes me happy! I will definitely be following this!

Ahh, there's nothing like a little exercise and friendly competition to get your mind off things. Kudos to Chance for thinking that...I just like the friendly, brother-like relationship between him and Jake. Your fanfic proves how close they are. If only CN could bring the SWAT Kats back...

Nice story...so far
I loved SWAT KATS...I miss the series...wish they could bring it back...
You really captured Chance and Jake's personalities...
I like reading, your take on how their relationship/friendship has developed and is still developing...
You have potential as a writer and story teller...
Looking forward to reading more...
Bye for now...

I've always loved friendship fics, and this one is gorgeous... showing how they lean on and lift each other up. And you sly thing you, I saw what you did there... Of course Chance wants the obstacle course in part so as to get jake out of the hangar and relieve his stress! I love how you didn't spell it out, but Jake's clueless wonderings never brought HIM closer to realizing it however, we see in the end how his stress is washed away by fresh air and friendly competition. Kudos to Chance, and to you!

Aww. Feeling the love - great writing style
| Cody Furlong chapter 5 . 4/4/2011
Cool, it's great to see another chapter of this one up. It was pretty good if a bit on the short side.
| Ghostkid33 chapter 4 . 11/29/2010
Poor Chance...it must suck for him and his best friend to be ex-Enforcers now third-rate mechanics working in extreme heat making little to no income to take care of themselves. Still, another excellent chapter!
| Etherweil chapter 4 . 11/22/2010
Excellent Chapter! Keep up the good work.
| GeekGirl2 chapter 4 . 11/20/2010
Welcome back. Glad to see you're back to working on Midnight Oil.
Y'know, it's gotten attention elsewhere as well, it's in the recommended fanfic section on TV Tropes for Swat Kats even. :)
Glad to see that it's still alive and kicking, and updating. :) Poor Chance... That's gotta suck. :)
