"No [...] like Alec [...] like family."
Alec had to turn his face away then.
AWWWWWWWW! oh my heart, that was a nice exchange.

i'm glad this is not Max/Alec. i thought their sibling relationship was pulled off very well in the show - with the bickering, toothless (and frequent!) threats, and - OH YEAH - reflexive sacrifices.
got some nice, sticky lines in this chapter:
...she is always just out of reach.
...he is everything that Manticore wanted him to be
The Sketchmeister will ride again.

I'm not sure about reviewing this story, seeing it's already been 3 years since it was published. But I just can't help myself! This is one of the greatest fics in Dark Angel that I have ever read! Your writing style is very unique and refreshing and even the story itself made my pulse race. Also, I absolutely loved that chapter were Joshua described each one of the characters in terms of colors. Brilliant! Genius! My only complaint is that it has a sequel... which to me seems like it will never be updated again. Anyway, I hope you know how talented a writer you are!

WOW! I just found this story and I absolutely loved it. You penned each character so well especially when describing their loyalty to Alec. You almost had me in tears. I wish there had been a season 3. Thanks you and I can't wait to read the sequel.

I didn't really read this cuz well it's not Max/Alec pairing. But what i did manage to read was good. Thanks for this. Max/Alec ftw! ;D

This is brilliant! The story was filled with suspense and I liked how you slowly unraveled the truth with each chapter you wrote. I really enjoyed reading it, especially these last few chapters. They almost had me in tears.

LOL, I am reading your author's notes saying that you had no plans for a sequel, but I guess you changed your mind because it was the intro to the sequel that sent me here to read the first part. I enjoyed your story and your characterizations. I particularly liked that you did not need to make any of the characters (other than the villains) into villains. Too many fanfics distort or exaggerate protagonists to make them into antagonists. In the case of Dark Angel, Logan is all too often turned into a caricature in order to facilitate an M/A story. While I like Max and Alec together, too many authors feel they must make Logan into a selfish and spiteful person unrecognizable as the decent and good man from the series. I'm glad to see Logan as his usual sharp-minded and good-hearted self here. Although Gem is a character that doesn't hold much interest for me, you used he very effectively for third party insights. It was also nice to see Mole outside TC.

This is absolutely and utterly amazing. One of, if not the, best Dark Angel fics I've ever read. I can't wait to see the sequel get marked as complete so I can dive in and read it, too. Lydecker back, Alec near death, Ames dead, Max finally catching a clue, everyone's voices and actions so perfectly in character. Thank you so much for writing this. It's fantastic.

I reallyreallyreally like what you're making of Alec. He's so under-representated in fanfiction too -apart from M/A porn, which often makes him either an emo boy, either an idiot.
You're going stright to favourites!

Great fic, I really enjoyed it! I especially liked getting the viewpoints of so many various characters and their perspectivs on what was happening (I think Joshua contemplating the colors of each person might have been my favourite, but it's hard to pick).
Your whole take on the Terminal City dynamics - that it's largely made up of soldiers who don't necessarily want to sit quietly and wait for diplomacy to work - was really insightful. Max is at her best & worst here - so dedicated and focused on her cause that she's sometimes losing touch with the people behind it - and, as an 09'er, that she's not necessarily trusted by all of TC.
In one of your chapters, you had a line about how Max was so divorced from her transgenic nature that she didn't notice the symptoms Alec was showing - I found that interesting, too.
Finally, I'm really glad you didn't kill Alec because not only do I like Alec (and yes, I do!), but also, with TC sentiment as you'd described it, I think that the fallout from his death might end up pulling the whole place apart. Which is what makes the uncertain ending work so well. It's a bit hopeful, a bit grim, you're just not sure how it's going to work out - for Alec or for Terminal City.
Anyway, thanks for sharing - it was a very interesting read!

I've really enjoyed this story, and hope you consider a sequel.
At any rate, looking forward to your next work. Take care.
