I think the way you tie Stu, Harry and Johnny together is positively inspired! It explains so well why, as Gene is later to explain to Sam, he shopped Harry. Your story is showing us the influences in both hs lives, which are to make Gene the man he is by the time Sam meets him. I know you have other priorities at presnt, but please continue this and your other stories when you can - please!

Amazing! You've brought Gene back in the place where he was shot, but in a different time (like Alex and Sam), and Harry Outhwaite greets him in the same terms as Gene will one day greet Sam. And Nelson is there to sort things out, as always. But already we learn that Outhwaite is corrupt, and we know from LOM 1.4 that tragedy awaits... This is great!

I really cannot think why nobody else has thought to do a fic about the young Gene, PC 6620. It's a great idea, and you write it wonderfully. The raw young copper is different, yet the same: the man in embryo, colourful language, whisky-drinking, living down the scars from his father's brutality and his brother's degredation. And there is so much atmosphere and detail in the description of the Coronation. The ending is shocking, even though we know it's coming. So, what next?

This is really great! I love that you're doing a fic on Gene's past, I don't think there's another one of those, at least I've not come across any. x :)

Brilliant chapter, and I loved the tie in to Harry and Jonny with Stu's death. Gene's anger and pain really seeped through every word, it's great!
| Psamathe chapter 3 . 6/5/2010
Loving this. I'm glad that someone is writing Gene's story. It's a tale that needs to be told
| Jazzola chapter 3 . 6/5/2010
Bit of an understatement, "Gene's not having a very good week"... and this is creepy, because this week was the anniversary of a guy from my school named Stuart dying :( But still... This is going so well! I can't believe how well-written it is. Please keep going!

I love this story more and more with every chapter. You've done an excellent job of weaving all the little plot points about Gene's life, it's just an amazing read.
Thank you so much! *hugs*

Great chapter Mage and the tie in between Stu and Harry works very well.
Loved all the dialogue - very intense and dark in places as Gene learns the ropes. Great story.

another fantastic chaper, thought the moment of young gene realising he was dead was a very dramatic you captured it quite well and i liked your introduction of the railway arms and nelson

This is amazing! Really nice... I can imagine Gene really saying these things, being like this, doing the stuff he does here... you've got something really good here!
Thanks for putting this up, I love it!
