Groovy Angel chapter 1 . 3/23/2010
What a sad ending. I'm glad Ming and Jansen lasted right until the very end of Jansen's life, and that he died at peace. They obviously had a long and happy life together, with children and many memories - memories that Ming won't forget. I really enjoyed this.

Bittersweet, which is about perfect for this. I really like your look at the characters, and Jansen's reaction seemed fine-I like that he tried so hard to find the right thing to say, and his humor still came through.

It could have been fun to give the grandkid a personality, but I can understand not wanting to.

You really should have someone go through this with you for typos and spelling errors, though, there are enough to distract from the story.

Overall, I liked this. Glad you're writing for Lost Odyssey!
