No need to hide at all! I assume when you say you've only been watching for a few months, you mean you've watched all the old clips on YT as this is well characterised, and you wouldn't be getting that from onscreen of late! I really enjoyed it. Sensitive, nuanced, with a great use of language. Third person can sound hollow but I really felt the emotion here, and I found it a fitting insight into the baby issue (that could easily, as proven onscreen, sound like nonsense). Hope you write more Chryed :)

Loved it. A nice bit of angst with a sweet ending. You should write more.

Can I ask, were you one of the people selling the save ianto jones badges at the hub 3? I bought a load of them :D

Awww, I really liked that and I hope they did have a good conversation about it properly when they went home! You captured their characters really well and it was nice to see more of Syed's reservations and why.

I'm looking forward to you writing more for these two!

Changhenge chapter 1 . 1/22/2011
I really enjoyed this, I liked the sense throughout that there is something that they are holding back from, with Christian trying to cover up some of his instinctive emotions but they just sneak through.

And it is good to read some of the background issues coming up, Syed's attitude towards gay parenthood for example, underlying tension still about the pain of the past, the conflict between Christian's hopefulness (suggesting that the child mihgt bring his parents round) and Syed's realism/cynicism.

I thought this line was particularly good. It is telling, well written and painful. "It was a shame that the one thing that made him finally understand was also the thing that had alienated them from his life."

I'd like to read more Chryed from you

Don't hide in a corner! This is what we should have seen on screen but they were too busy with other people whose names I can't even remember. This is definitely what happened between episodes now :)
