Abracadebra chapter 1 . 1/2/2017
Your newest HH story just sent me scrambling back to read this one, which I recall as one of my first finds on the site. Although this is just a short vignette, it is exquisite - beautifully crafted with every single word carefully chosen. That is truly Newkirk's voice as he rehashes the events, blames himself, blames the girl, and thanks his lucky stars. I love short pieces like this one that take us inside the character's heads to fill in missing moments from the series. Newkirk's musing about how lucky it was that it was he and not one of the others who was caught was perfectly in character.

I finally saw the episode this one was based, and I love it even more! You got the character down perfectly, and you've put the phrase "His fingerprints all over this one" in my vocabulary. Great little gem, much deserving of the award nomination.

Nice little oneshot! I think this was a great look into Newkirk's inner dialog for that episode. And I also believe that you wrote Newkirk very realistically. I would have liked it to have been a bit longer just cause it was such a little gem, but I also liked where you concluded it. Technically speaking, this story was spotless by my account, no grammar errors or typos that I noticed. So well done! This is going in my favorites!

I love the looks into Newkirk's mind here, particularly his musings about a Higher Power being involved in this particular mission. It's an angle that gives quite a lot of depth to this character.

The little exchange between Newkirk and Carter about luck was also powerful.
GSJessica chapter 1 . 5/26/2010
Very nice. Well done as a missing scene. And also nicely done as a piece about faith and God-that part was done convincingly and in-character rather than over-the-top sappy. Very good, indeed.
Kirarakim chapter 1 . 5/25/2010
Interesting one shot. I was always a bit conflicted whether Newkirk knew from the start whether Myra was a plant...that is why he gave her the radio frequency without the recognition code. But your story explains things quite well too.
ColHogan chapter 1 . 5/25/2010
Great missing scene. Always wondered how Newkirk knew Myra was Gestapo. Excellent job.
Bits And Pieces chapter 1 . 5/25/2010
That was wonderful! I can't imagine a better scenario for that missing was perfect! I'm so glad Deana suggested it to you. Great job!
Deana chapter 1 . 5/25/2010
I loved this! Excellent title! Newkirk sure got out of that situation easily, and I loved your explanation of how! ;) Thank you so much for writing this...if I can think up anymore scenes that I'd like to see, I'll let you know. ROTFL ;)
