Hi,
I'm glad there is at least one fic about Contact. I love that movie and watch it again from time to time, as one of my favorites.
Thanks a lot for sharing this one. Maybe I'll join you some day with one of my own; I've been thinking 'bout writing one. Just need to decide on which part...
All the best :-)

Contact was, not only a fantastic movie, but one of the best books I've ever read. One of my two favorites, in fact.

It's not only a wonderful thing to see that someone's taken the time to write about it, but you've done a fantastic job. Ellie and Joss are not easy characters to be deeply in touch with while writing- I've seen Contact fanfiction before, and it is usually riddled with little quirks the author adds to each character fairly well subconsciously. You've stayed in character extremely well.

I also love the simplicity. Sagan's book especially focused so much on the thought, emotion, and intent behind the words and actions of the characters, and you've captured that spirit extremely well.

And now, for a quick fangirl squeal. !

I found it interesting that the compass might've ended up saving HER life. I guess there's nothing in the movie (I haven't read the book - yet) that actually says she would've died if she'd stayed in the chair, instead of getting out to catch the compass, but then, there's nothing that says she would lived, either.

I like this. I hadn't thought she was this flustered at their first meeting, but then, maybe I just didn't catch it.

Drumlin, grr. He said the universe is mostly noble gases, and it's not - the NORMAL MATTER in the universe (which is only a fourth of all matter including dark matter, and an even smaller percentage of the universe if you count dark energy) just regular matter alone is made up of 75% hydrogen, which isn't a noble gas. Helium is, but it only makes up 25% (or the normal matter). Pretty much all other gases (noble or not) are trace.

Sorry. I was really upset that I couldn't find that error on imdb, and as this is the only Contact fic on this site, at least in the movies section...I simply had to rant to you.

Anyway, I liked the story! Great job!

Wow. Nice job. Nice, flowing writing style; the voice is convincingly Ellie's. Very simple, very... delicate, I think is a good word. Nice work.

Well, I read it. Good, I think that you should take it another few chapters...

Good luck, and Keep Writing!
