Just read your story. Great job, it kept me glued to the screen. A lot of emotion between the characters, & you handled it well. I was impressed with how you handled the descriptions of Eliot's torture & how you left the details out, letting the reader form that part of the story themselves. It allows the reader to actually feel apart of the plot, & to draw their on their own imaginations to fill in the blanks. It keeps things much more interesting than seeing it in black & white.
I know that you wrote this story some time ago & I'm sorry that it took me so long to read it. You see, I just found Fan Fiction a couple of weeks ago & I'm now back reading stories. I hope you are still writing, I'm looking forward to reading more of your creations.
Thank-you & I'm going to leave now & search for more of your writings.
Again... Good Job.

I can't believe I just found this story. Had to do a filter search for Eliot and H/C to find it. Just not enough good Eliot whump out there. The story was amazing. I loved it. I felt so much sorrow and fear for Eliot's psyche, the poor boy was just decimated and devastated. Great job!

Bravo! This is a really great piece of work. A different type of Eliot whumpage for sure, somehow actually more terrifying. So glad our favorite hitter pulled through in the end.

I love your epilogue, Peanut!
Yes, I can truly see how Eliot needed his space in the end to get back to normal (more or less). First in his own home with the team checking on him and then eventually, all on his own, far from anything that would distract him from sorting through his (for lack of a better word) "mental state".
Of course, they all harboured hopes that Eliot might just bounce back. Yet, much like Sophie reckoned, things like these take time... and sadly, an awful lot of it - particularly considering Eliot's admission that he'd been through this before repeatedly, and every time will only add to the burden.
Gorgeous final scene, you wrote there! I suspected the hitter missed his scheduled call because he was already heading home or practically at home and wanted to surprise the whole team with his sudden appearance.
Very well done, Peanut. I certainly hope you'll write more 'Leverage' stories in the future.

I'm so glad to see Nate and Eliot finally talked to each other for real and the team leader eventually got his point across. It's a baby step but a step in the right direction, nonetheless.
Also, my heart-felt condolences for your loss, Peanut. You so don't have to apologize for not updating your story all that quickly after something this tragic happened. I'm sure everyone understands.

Great story, thanks for sharing! As time passes, I hope the loss of your Mom is a little easier to deal with. I know how difficult it is and my thoughts are with you.

Fantastic Ending to an equally Fantastic Story! So sad to this one end :((
Cant wait to see what you come up with next!

Good ending; very in character for Eliot and the others.
Best wishes to you - blessed be.
PS. You're on my author alert list :)

I'm sad to see this story end too but I'm glad though. It means you pulled it off. Finished this one and hopefully can find something in this that makes you want to write again. Either a good review, or thoughts about how your mom hung on every word of your work and supported every keystroke you typed up and shared. I love your work and please, know that I'm here to hang on every word now.

A reasonable ending to å great story. I don't think having Eliot just slide through his recovery would've made sense. I like how the team motherhened him until he realized he needed to do it on his own, his way, without the team. Great work, I hope you write something else soon.
I'm sorry about your mom and that you had a hard time at Christmas.

Thanks for finishing the story. It was a nice ending and hope you try another story for this show soon. Wishing you brighter and happier days ahead. :)

I have to say I am sorry to see this story end too. I have really enjoyed reading it. I think the way you had Eliot getting over what happened to him was very true to his character. Thanks for updating and completing this story given your circumstances.

I'm so sorry about your Mum. That kind of loss can only be eased with time, and a lot of it. This story was so loved! Thank you for writing it. It will be missed.
