Reviews for The Short Straw

I love this one to, well done.
I thought about Jack's sentence when he asked himself if there's another Jack in an alternate reality, who is strong enough to work with Carter without watching her every time.
The reality he means, is this he reality we know in the show, so, are you writing about an alternative reality in this fiction? Because I think in our reality Jack and Sam are strong enough to resist each other. Or maybe not? :) Well...just thinking. I like your writing very much.

I've read this story several times now... I think I'd rather re-read it than read something new because it's so freaking perfect.

I love this, and have re-read it three times now.

Deliciously sad and perfect.

Oh, my. This isn't something you see often, not particularly fluffy but as sweet as a marshmallow. Goodness. Please write more stuff like this!

Not sure how I missed this when it was published, but I have to say I'm really glad I found it now!

I love the AUs with Sam and Jack, and this flow through the years was lovely. I think you balanced perfectly their need and desire to do their duty and abide by the regs with their need for sanity, and companionship, and each other. It's nice to see a new author who is writing S&J without them being completely fluffy and super-human. They are so much more real and interesting when they're that little bit weak and broken.

(Also, your Hammond is made of win.)

I can't wait to read more by you!
