A rare look at just how much Eliot can or in this case not take. Always thought they ignored how hurt he really was.

First off:Thanks! I like the idea for this one and your writing is very easy to read and fluid in the telling (at least to me, though I'm not a native speaker..). I'd say you got the characters pretty well, though Parker seems rather less.. is erratic the word I'm looking for? You know what I mean ;)
Anyway, I liked it, so thanks for writing!

Will there be any more of this great story? I'm really enjoying it and you need to get Eliot well enough to leave the hospital and go home where the rest of the team can fuss over him while he recovers! :)

Oh dear! You must save Eliot!

Oh our poor sweet Eliot! :( I'm so glad his "family" is there to help him.

Whew. Had me panting and reading as fast as I could.
Nice. Good plot, good characterization, and writing that flows.
Only one thing I can say that's in the slightest negative, and it's only a quirk of mine: using the same word(s) too many times in one paragraph grates on me a little.
Like 'the room' in this one:
Less than an hour later the nurse appeared to lead them to THE ROOM; she needn't have bothered since Hardison had already found out THE ROOM number, the route and at least half a dozen alternative points of entry and exit for THE ROOM. Patiently following the woman, they walked with some trepidation towards THE ROOM.
If you can find another way to phrase it, would be great.
And even then, this is no real criticism - damn bloody good writing!
You're on my Author alert, and I've bookmarked your author page to read all your stories.

At Arm's Length: boy! you whumped him up good in this one! :-) Just the type of ending I would expect to see for that episode. I mean, my gosh, the man was hit by a car, for crying out loud! Nice to see the very real effects of what such an injury would cause. You scared me with the seizure, but glad to see all the care and concern displayed by the rest of the team. Nice missing scene.

I'm just now getting to see Season 3 of Leverage, and when I mentioned to a friend that I'd got past the Boost Job, this story came up in the conversation, so I came to read it.
One word: Wow!
I think I was actually shaking at one point, reading at double speed to make sure Eliot was going to be okay, you had me THAT worried! lol Yeah, I get really into stories, of course it only happens when they're incredibly well written so kudos ;)
The worry came most when the blood started pouring out of our favourite hitter, and later when he had the seizure at the hospital. Of course, Eliot had to be okay eventually, but you wrote it so well, I was just on the edge of my seat here.
Parker was sweet, bless her, feeling so guilty about her 'get over it' comment. She sees Superman when she looks at Eliot, it doesn't really occur to her that he really gets hurt. Actually, this was exactly the convo I was having with my friend that led to me reading this story. Really glad we were talking about that :)
Think I might just be checking out some more of your stories, because you are an awesome writer!

Oh no, Eliot! (Why do I get the feeling that I'll keep saying that a lot with your stories? It's a mystery, I guess.)
I liked Parker screaming at the inattentive drivers who fail to get out of the ambulance's way. That's something that pisses me off to no end. Especially when you consider the fact that fatality rates are particularly high in ambulance accidents since the EMTs and/or paramedics aren't strapped in and they're surrounded by metal things.
Eliot will be very upset if they shaved off any of his hair in the course of treatment. Take good care of him, team!
