The Kate/Claire friendship was one of my favorite aspects of the show. Thanks for writing them as platonic, it's nice for a change.

Where... do I even start?
I don't know if anything I'd write here would ever get across how frankly incredible this marvelous piece of fiction is.
I think the biggest thing for me is that it's platonic. I'm asexual so, when I read fics between two female characters and things start going NC-17, I despise it. There are so many great female friendships on shows and they get... over-slashed :-/
But anyway, back to this... You get right inside both Kate and Claire's heads from the get go, nailed their little patterns in the way they speak and act and if I was told before reading that this was a deleted scene from the script, I'd believe it.
From the thoughts in Kate's head following everything during the day they left to Claire's reactions after spending three years alone... just... perfect.
The Kate/Claire friendship on the show was probably one of the most important relationships - Claire was Kate's chance to "make things right". Back to the start., Claire was in her early 20s when they landed on the island and Kate was mid/late 20s so it was almost a sisterly dynamic.
This may be the single greatest fic I've ever read. I was a little misty-eyed at the end to say the least. Thankyou for such a wonderful piece of fiction.

This was a very nice read! I think you did a wonderful job describing all the confliction emotions they must be dealing with in their situation. And I think the ending was spot on, I really liked this bit: "So maybe when something's broken - a relationship, a person, a heart - it's not always wise, or easy, to put it back together again. Maybe it's just better to pick up the pieces you have, even if the pieces only turn out to be memories, and move on."

It's a very smooth and sweet fic. I can't believe i am the first reviewer. I loved that the pairing was done in a platonic way. I don't mind slash either but platonic love is not usually approached with these two. After all, they share a bond which is stronger (and stranger) than friendship.
I also liked the fact that Claire reminded Kate of Jack when she sneaked into Kate's bed.
I am not sure about which 'odd moment on the island' you are referring to. Perhaps when Claire holds Kate's hand?. It happens after she learns that Kate has had Aaron for 3 years so I am not sure how to understand that scene.
It was a pleasure to read your story :)

Awww, what an adorable little fic. For a moment there I was worried it would turn into some sort of femslash thing, but thankfully you didn't go down that road. I must admit, I do like the idea of Kate and Claire trying to get back to the friendship they had before, and that Claire was the one who instigated their little chat makes me realize there is still some hope for her. I would love to see another chapter to this, maybe Claire's meeting with Aaron, but it is wonderful as just a one-shot as well. You did such a great job with this, describing how both Kate and Claire would have been feeling, and this really was a joy to read. :)
