I never believed in Bridger's grandson. However, this is one of the better portrayals of Bobby I've seen.

Great beginning! I always wondered why Bridger blamed the Navy so completely for Robert's death (his anger bordered on irrational in the pilot!), so I look forward to seeing your take on the whole situation.

Can't wait to read more!

Well, you know I adore this. Poor Bobby, lost in the North Atlantic.

Can't wait to see the rest of it!

Leave it to you to break both his legs. Very well researched, makes it have a great realistic feel to it. A great beginning, even works as a one-shot, though, of course, we all prefer to see where it goes!

Of course, I feel that the story opened up with the mini-sub 31 feet too deep.

Anyhow, I adore your characterization of a loopy Robert who's trying not to be *too* loopy. I love the decks of cards in the emergency supplies. That's some serious foresight.

All in all, probably the most plausible and realistic reason behind why Robert would just disappear without telling anyone he's alive. We all know how well some of those underwater colonies and outposts and stations were upkept, after all. Especially in the early days. Fabulous job!

Challenge for the next chapter: include, somehow, a plastic horse.

Wow! This was AWESOME! I can't believe you've managed to get out another story but I am very much NOT complaining. This looks like a really, really excellent take on what happened to Robert, and I cannot wait to see how it turns out. I adore your writing style, so I'm definately looking forward eagerly to what happens next!

A good start. I think this is interesting...going into the history of Robert. Looking forward to the next update.
