Oh my gosh the ending alone is brilliant, made all the better by the lead-up to it. Fantastic!

WHAT THE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELL DUUUUUUDE? *cries and cries and cries* ok OMG this was so uncalled for, GIVE A GIRL A WARNING OR SOMETHING, like post a note at the beginning that reads "warning: a tornado of feels is coming your way" because OMG what even was that? I was reading Alex bearing herself and her soul to Gene and I had actual tears in my eyes at the heaviness and sincerity of her words and her trust towards Gene and then his reaction, GOOD GOD SOMEBODY SEDATE ME! "You are absoutely bloody flawless" ok BYE, I'll go drown in my pool of feels...!

This was so raw and just beautifully laid everything out there between them. I definitely can see how Gene would assume that Alex is perfect, because she does try hard to put forth that perception so she can warrant a level of respect that would’ve been hard to gain during he 80s in a very mans man of a world. I think it was very brave of her to strip that all away in front of Gene and you wrote it up so beautifully.

Hey, I haven't even watched Ashes to Ashes before and love this beautiful oneshot :)

This is perfect, words cannot describe it. From their arguments, to Alex's acceptance to admit this all to him and to Gene and his reactions. Beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful. You had me both crying and smiling at the last section.
| Eleantris chapter 1 . 9/3/2010
Again - wow. Beautiful, just like the others I read, and such a deep insight into the reasons Alex does a lot of the things she does. Have you studied psychology? Because it just feels like you have, what with the sensitivity that you write things and so on. This was absolutely amazing, and my mouth actually fell open a little way whilst reading it!

This is shatteringly good. You bring out how the pain and frustration of the job takes its toll on both of them, and how they take it out on each other. Your writing crackles with their pain. Alex's long series of 'reveals' of her imperfections brings out her vulnerability, and his too. And that ending is perfect.

Your fic made me cry like a baby. It's just... To mirror the last line of this fic (because that's exactly what I'm looking for to express how awesome it was): this is absolutely bloody flawless.
| morethanjust-a-fairytale chapter 1 . 7/13/2010
omg you could so make this a 2 shot! i love your style of writing, i find it really hard to write in presesnt tense (: xx great fic, could be carried on though x
| catweasel chapter 1 . 7/7/2010
This is fantastic! I love that Alex and Gene can live on in some way and your writing is so spot on it captures the characters so well. I was lost when S3 ended, I felt that Galex and the rest of the team had so much more potential to give. With your writing there is hope of that! You have captured Gene's bullish charm so accurately I especially love the comment "Praise the Lord, she speaks!", perfect! Please, please keep writing...!
| Malena Hunt chapter 1 . 7/4/2010
This is wonderful. Just resonates so much with me as a woman and as an Alex fan. Great insight into her psyche. Hope to read more from you. :)
| Gem6 chapter 1 . 6/7/2010
What an absolutely beautiful ending!
| Siggy chapter 1 . 6/7/2010
Another fantastically written story - great phrasing and elegantly written while still getting to the heart of the matter.
