I am sad to see this go, but you ended it brilliantly.
I kinda had a bad feeling when you said "Character Death" that you meant Uban. I liked her...but it's war, and people die.
And I love how you dealt with Beach. He DOES care...very, very much...but he also knows that when you're in the middle of battle, you've got to do whatever it takes to keep the bad guys from winning and as many of your people alive as possible. There isn't TIME to agonize over the fact that one guy out of your squad got killed when there's a platoon pinning down six more of your buddies in a trench.
Also...ninja fight and the subsequent blowing of poor Lifeline's mind. Yes, Jinx is very, very good at making people dead. Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are far better than she is, and watching those two go full tilt after each other would be enough to leave your brain leaking out your ears.
I thought you did very well at portraying what a ninja fight would look like to someone who would never have seen a ninja fight before. Almost too quick to see, but leaving an impression of utterly mind-bending skill and an appriciation for the lethality of the combatants.
But the bit with Beach at the end? The best. We don't get to see the more human side of Beach much; thanks for it.

The idea of violent cooties makes me think anybody who ever hooks up with a ninja would automatically become one too… I’d see it being even more effective than a vampire’s bite.
More seriously, I love how you show off the courage shared by all the Joes – every last one that’s injured and still conscious just wants to keep going. Heroes to the last one.
I really liked Lifeline’s reactions to the ninjas, first Jinx and then Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Loved Jinx’s reaction to Lifeline’s reaction at seeing her in combat. Overall really good battle scene, just chaotic enough. Keeping it in Lifeline’s point of view was great, you really feel the mix of being pumped full of adrenaline, overwhelmed, running low on energy and desperate attempt at fixing up everyone. I particularly liked his reaction to finding out he can’t save them all – from the initial denial and crushing grief to going back to help the ones he still can, to the final resolution to keep trying to save them all even with the knowledge he won’t succeed. Lifeline rocks.
Awesome story from start to finish!

This was a very well done chapter. The battle scenes were very realistic as was Lifeline's response to being in his first Joe vs. Cobra firefight and seeing ninjas in action for the first time. I'm sad Uban died, but again, someone had to for realism, plus it was necessary for Lifeline to make his little discovery at the end that the battle wasn't totally pointless.
The scene at the end between Beach Head and Lifeline was also great. Lifeline's finally matured into the medic we all know and love. Not only that, but he and Wayne have finally come to an understanding. That was a beautiful way to end the story. Thanks a lot for writing it and sharing the story with us readers.

Can't wait for the next chapter. This is an 'on the edge of your seat' story. Poor Lifeline... hope he comes out of this okay.

Poor lifeline. Being stabbed on accident totally seems like something that would happen to him though.
