|Reviews for Chuck vs the Second Chance|
| Arathorn73 chapter 49 . 5/19
Epic. Thanks for writing this.
- Very believable - everything was very plausible
- Characters - I found all of them to be very relatable (except maybe the Director). Sarah finding refuge in alcohol, Chuck's brilliance, Ellie/Awesome's travels, etc.
- The gradual reveal of what drove Chuck/Sarah apart, with reasonable hints. It was artfully (and painfully) done.
- The casefic action
- No epilogue
- Bleak-ish ending - I like happy endings (even if they don't last - that's me)
- Sarah dying - felt a bit over-the-top to me
Overall, VERY PLEASURABLE reading - engaging and kept me desperate to come back for more, as limited time allowed.

Can’t let this one go; no woman would throw away one of her wedding pictures because the frame broke. She’d take the picture out and reframe it. WTH?

This is so goddamn painful. The fact that you’re a good writer makes it worse because I can’t seem to turn away. I just don’t see it. How could someone choose misery over and over again when happiness is literally standing right next to them. She’s not an indentured servant to the CIA. The show made insane choices that made no sense in order to drive ratings. What they’re doing here makes less sense? They never got a divorce? Sarah left Chuck for what exactly? Fear of happiness?
I don’t know if you’re still around, if you still get you’re reviews. You’re a damn good writer. I hate criticizing content - I’m choosing to read this. The description clearly says ANGST.
The thing that sucks is that I want to believe they’re better than this, but I don’t know that they were. Anyway, if you get this review, your takeaway should be that I think you’re a good writer and I’m a guy who doesn’t handle angst stories very well.

If you ever get the chance to read this, I read this story when it came out 11 years ago and even though it's been many many years since I've last touched the fandom, this is one of the few that I immediately remembered when I saw it. Thank you for all the memories!

I just found this one. I liked how you split the stories between the present and past to fully explain h ow they'd grown apart. I normally prefer HEA endings but I thought the ending was very much in line with the rest of the style and it works well. Thanks for sharing.

and droped ... yeah this is just way too unrealistic to follow any longer ...
| Guest chapter 2 . 9/12/2020
again too little information ... why should i keep reading if it feels like i started in the middle of the story ?
| Guest chapter 1 . 9/12/2020
this chapter tells me nothing ... it does not tell me where the au starts, it does not tell me how long it was since then and it does not tell me what ahppened ... all it does is tell me that something changed and that is way too little for an opening chapter ...

| Harakan chapter 45 . 8/26/2020
Good old Diane to the rescue (never thought in million years i am gonna said that). So even director of the CIA doesn't now what everything Chuck and Sarah has done and looks like it Sarah really want a second chance well we all know what Chuck knows. And little question who knows when CIA have a mandate to investigate domestic terrorism on US soil isn't that duty of FBI and NSA?

So do something about that you want a second chance now you use it you are freaking Enforce so enforce be finally Sarah who everyone love in the show stop nothing to came to her man and maybe tell him that from time to time...
