| Abracadebra chapter 8 . 3/26
I had to work backwards to find a chapter I hadn't reviewed. Keschte, you are so close to the end of this absorbing story. I know life has a tricky habit of getting in the way, but I hope you can return to it soon. I can't wait to be able to nominate this one for a PBA!

Omg, I'm totally loving this. I wasn't going to post reviews on really old chapters but I'm just now reading it and I'm all caught up in it and seeing Hogan finally standing up and seeing that he IS the leader... I have eye strain from the screen but can't stop reading.

This story is wonderful! The characters beautifully written and believable. I hope you get inspired to finish soon. Till then, "I see nothing...NOTHING!" In the words of Sgt Schultz. ;-)

Absolutely brilliant story! I can't wait for more - is there really only one chapter left? Such a wonderful story - I was completely enthralled with the way you wrote the characters and the plot - that I will be sad to see it end.

Such a great story, glad I found it!

Finally caught up! Frankly im finding Hughes' remorse a bit annoying. Anxious to see the next chapter as there are lots of lose ends to tie up.

Well, I'm not surprised Newkirk wasn't the father. Although it would have been an interesting plot twist if he was. Meanwhile, Hughes is still despicable and his actions and those of his lackeys were totally unwarranted.
| snooky-9093 chapter 15 . 12/1/2013
Just when I was wondering when we would have to witness the return of Hughes, you didn't leave me disappointed. Somehow I think that Newkirk's side of the story may be different. I like how things are moving slowly in the story. A lot of things are happening, and it takes time for it all to develop.

Using the building of the infirmary (great plot device) to get beams for the tunnel is a great idea. I'm glad you mentioned Hogans priority was the men in camp and their safety and well-being, not just the operation. His primary role is Senior POW officer.
The actions of the other officers were despicable, and to think that men died in this camp before Klink arrived is awful.
Happy that Hogan and Newkirk had that talk. I am still intrigued as to why Newkirk stole the cake. (I'm sure you'll get to that eventually.)

Here's Olsen! Finally. And one of the worst troublemakers as well! (Thought he would admit he spoke fluent German. hogans recognition of his depression and the cause is a good sign that his mental state has been mended. Newkirk is showing a spark of defiance and disrespect again. I believe he was the only member if the core team in the show that actually pulled that off. You have a different take on the operation's start, (dont we all?) and I will admit that it has some plausibility. I always thought that sending Hogan and his team in on purpose wasn't realistic, but with intelligence briefing and training a select group of pilots in hopes that it may work is actually a good idea.

I'm in awe if your plotting in this chapter, and yes you did move the plot forward. Here you show us a slice of life in camp, first with Wilson's outburst, and the simple scene with the leaking roof. How did you think of the string? I know I wouldn't have. Lol.
| snooky-9093 chapter 10 . 12/1/2013
Hogan's manipulation of Klink here is superbly written and very entertaining. So sad that his spark and joy deflates after seeing Wilson with Newkirk.

Now reading this on my iPod so its a bit harder to type reviews. American football on New Years? Hahaha! Lots of college football now. I wonder if it was played back then.
Little Lebeau is not afraid of the dogs but Kinch. is wary. Love how the three men got distracted while discussing plans.
Hogan will and is gaining the respect of his men as he shows respect for them. And I can see the start of the hogan we know and love coming through.
Great explanation of the start of the operation, but I still have an issue with Hogan's language barrier. He'd have to become fluent very quickly and that's not that easy. I would love to see a glimpse of Olsen and how he fits in. (Maybe a later chapter?)

So here's how we get the core team. Got a lump in my throat at the end of the chapter as it was so touching. (love Carter)
For some reason Mitchell made me think of Williams. (There's one in Every crowd). There was a real Mitchell in camp. Captain Mitchell. Do you remember him? I've used him in some of my stories.
| snooky-9093 chapter 7 . 12/1/2013
Ah, yes. A camp this size needs an infirmary.
I forgot to mention in another review, how hilarious the exchange was between Carter and Newkirk when they were talking about the nightshirt.
