It’s official; this story is EXCELLENT.
Relocating almost the entire cast of “Galactica” (With the exception of the Cylons; given that their presence was ‘public’ in the series their roles here are far more obviously secret, whereas everyone else is who they were in the series in a new environment) from the environment we know them in and putting them on a Caprica showing no signs of a Holocaust might be a risky move in the hands of a lesser writer, but from the moment Bill and Laura met up at that fountain you’ve created an intriguing new take on the series that I have highly enjoyed reading.
Admittedly, the relationship seemed to be a BIT fast in a couple of areas- the part where Adama talked about ‘showing [her] the world’ after only one date seemed a bit fast-, but the moments when Laura Roslin gets a chance to interact with the crew of “Galactica” as just ‘the Commander’s date’ rather than the President are definitely enjoyable.
Add in the added twist of the politically-themed enemy of Richard Adar attempting to blackmail Adama in order to get Laura to himself, and you definitely created some interesting ideas even before you revealed that the Cylons are still monitoring humanity with the apparent intention of doing to the Twelve Colonies what they did on New Caprica in canon (Although you raised some HIGHLY interesting further questions with the introduction of that plotline, I assure you).
Of course, various plans have definitely fallen apart after the turn of events in the last chapter, but with Bill’s ‘vision’ of his father taken into account- to say nothing of such elements as his connections to three of the Final Five and the political complications of what they know about Adar-, I think it’s safe to say that things aren’t over for “Galactica”’s crew yet (Even if they’re short a few details such as “Galactica” itself)...
Seriously, you DEFINITELY need to update this soon; I can’t WAIT to see what you’ve got planned next.

I just read your story and loved it. I'm truly enjoying the AU plot and great characterization of Laura and Bill. Having Bill write a mystery novel is so cute and appropriate. I love watching their romance unfold and I think President Adar makes a great villain.
I see that you haven't updated this story in nearly a year and I'm really bummed I'll never get to read how it ends.

I am refusing to believe she will die. Nope, no way, not happenin'! I've noticed that you are incorporating major events from the Television show such as Baltar trying to find a cure, Bill getting shot, and Ellen unexpectedly coming back. Where is Gaius frakking Baltar when you need him? She has to live! She can't die! This was so good because everything was happy hunky dory but now... Gr! Update soon please! I understand there must be some sort of sacrifice in the end because EVERYONE can't be happy, but come on! Laura? Really? Where's the kindness in that? I have to say, I connected alot more with this Laura than the one on the show and so I'm sure you under stand my... distaste for this particular "cliffhanger". Also, I was attempting to find out whether this was complete or not... but I couldn't figuure it out. Please say it's not!

End of the chapter:Opening her hand up, he placed the ring inside and closed her fingers over the top of it.
"It was my wedding ring to Carolanne, but it means more to me than that. It was a symbol of love of the service over my family, a sign that I thought more of that then of them. I want you to have it, keep it. It's my heart Laura, and I want you to have my heart like you have everything else."
The merest of touches on their lips, but it felt like fire in both of them. That was love, all of it wasted and all of it beautiful.
THAT WAS AMAZINGLY WRITTEN. THe one thing I don't like is that right after the happy stuff, there's always somthing bad. Oh dear, now I'm worried.

The end was sweet but the fact that Adar shot Bill... I have one thing to say... Oh no he didnt!

OMG! I loved this! The ending of this chapter is perfect! AH! I'm so jealous! Why couldn't I be creative enough to write this type of stuff! *SQUEE*
As you can probably tell, I'm a bit of an A/R shipper.

Hm ... I'm sort of confused now. To me as a reader, your plot has lost focus. Maybe it hasn't; maybe I'm just not getting the full story, .
It makes sense that they got caught since they were being so bad about sneaking around. A major sporting event; simply too stupid! She' the fraking president's fraking mistress. It had to be huge news when he leaves his wife for her and announces an engagement while he's still in the process of a divorce. She's got to have a famous face now. Too dumb a move for them to make, because if they're really suffering to keep Helo and Starbucksafe then there indiscretion endangers them. I know people in love do stupid things , but I'd expect them to at least confine their romantic moments to private houses.
What's the plan? Didn't they have some sort of plan where they end up together? How does Laura marrying Adar invalidate the plan, and they never see each other again. I mean, she's been sneaking around on Adar all throughout the engagement. She's obviously not above "cheating" on Adar. Why do the wedding vows change things?
I'm sorry this is not a positive feedback. I actually really love this AU you created. Serious love. I'm really invested in it, but I have been disappointed in the last few chapters where it seems like our heroes are being very, very dumb. It would probably have been better for them to get caught by accident or because Adar was more devious than they realized. You've characterized Adar as oblivious to it though. I can't help feeling that your plot got away from you and maybe you don't have a definate direction at the moment.
I really like your AU and what you did with the cahracters at the start of this story. Thank you for writing. I do look forward to your next chapter.

How sad that such a terrific story has gotten so few reviews! I love this story. It was hilarious to have Laura being pursued by Adar, and Zarek, and Adama. I love how Bill and Laura kept finding ways to sneak being together, even though they weren't really sneaking, buying furniture as a couple. Please don't let her die yet. And I hope Bill's manuscript ins't too badly damaged. Again, I love this story. I can't wait to read what happens next. Nice job :D.

I have to admit, this is actually a lot better than I thought it was going to be.
When I first started reading this, I thought it was just going to be a straightforward Caprica-based AU, focusing solely on the human characters and their personal and political dynamics while completely omitting the Cylons- still an interesting idea, but not quite my type of story-, but these last few chapters have DEFINITELY attracted my interest.
After all, a Leoben dating Racetrack, Number Six helping Baltar figure out a cure for Laura, the old “Galactica” crew planning to expose a technically corrupt President (He might not be taking bribes or anything like that but he IS committing some seriously questionable acts on a personal level such as blackmailing Adama; seems corrupt enough for me) and that dream Adama had about him being ‘needed’ for something in the future? The implications of the last one alone are STAGGERING; stick them all together and there are some VERY intriguing plot elements going on right now…
Plus, of course, the personal dynamics that are developing outside of “Galactica”’s chain of command are really rather interesting; Helo’s finding it a lot easier to get along with everyone without having to cope with their distrust of his ‘Cylon sympathies’, Laura’s almost ‘one of the girls’ despite her greater age compared to the rest of the women…
Minor details, I know, but as I’ve always said, the devil is in those details; good to see that fact being acknowledged.
However, talking of plot details and personal dynamics, I do have one request for this story’s future; any chance we could have another Number Eight dropping in to act as Helo’s love interest?
It’s just that I always liked those two as a couple- they’re pretty much tied with Roslin and Adama for my favourite “Galactica” pairing; the selfless dedication the two have for each other is something I’ve always found very commendable-, and it’s not like it would be TOTALLY implausible for the other Number Eight to pass herself off as just a woman who coincidentally happens to be Sharon’s exact physical double (Hey, if the “Doctor Who”-verse can do it on FIVE occasions for real- by which I mean that the physical resemblance between the two characters involved was sheer coincidence rather than being part of anybody's schemes-, the “Galactica”-verse can manage it once for ‘fake’) and end up falling for Helo.
Your call in the end, of course, but I thought I’d ask about it just in case.
Keep up the good work!
