I love how you entertwined Julie's thoughts of her conversion process and what Diana tried to make her believe Donovan did to her. The ability to feel Julie and Donovan's inner turmoil and feelings for one another really makes this scene pop and brings it to life. You did a wonderful job with it.

That was a positively beautiful non-love scene. Love how you showed Julie's fear, emotion and trying to separate her nightmares from reality. That you had to rebuild her trust for Donovan and showed his cautiousness. And I always wondered how they ended up in the same train car together. And how they shared intimate moments without being interrupted.

Hmm I just about fell off my chair with laughter over this line... "There goes 'Mr. Friendly' and his big buddy, the teddy bear." Lol. I love this introduction of Ham and Chris to Julie. But on people, especially men (even though they were friends before) walking up to and hugging her, I thought maybe she would flinch or something... show fear... some after-conversion effect. Just a thought.
Reading every scene in this chapter is a treat as its been a while since I've watched V The Final Battle, and the mention of Ruby's death and Ham and Chris reaction was a delightful surprise.
You know and portray each character very well. I'm lovin' it.

I just love this chapter. I like your writing from Maggie's POV especially. And I like how you step back and approach Julie's scene from the outsider looking in... staring with "This is how it feels to be her right now." Your story is the best "fill in the blanks and in between scenes"s story on V I've read. I also really feel Donovan's character the way he remembers what Ham said to him in regards to Julie and how he's responding to it in his mind. Kudos.

I am GLAD to see that this story is not dead as I had feared it to be. Loved the Updates keep up with the great work.

Thank you so much for updating this excellent story! :o) I've been looking forward to more - it's gritty and violent, but much more realistic than what could have been shown on TV in the '80s. Can't wait for the continuation of the story! :o)

This is a very gritty chapter when it comes to Julie's conversion scene. It makes me wonder (and I had explored this in a fic before myself) how Julie could be intimate with Donovan later if she had been given a vision that he raped her. The conversion scenes are hard for me to read as a Julie fan (sniffle), but you write them very well. You have excellent visual description.
I enjoyed the Martin/Lorraine and the other character scene, but as you opened it you did not make it clear which of the men said what line and it was a little confusing. Also, I think it may be a formatting issue, towards the end of the Donovan Tyler scene... I think it is mostly Tyler talking and you hit the return key and started a new line of dialogue when it was still Tyler talking, kind of looked like Donovan responding but I knew it was Tyler continuing by the words. And also, I noticed a few quotation marks missing in several dialogue phrases throughout the piece. Other than these minor issues, I think you are a great writer and you will probably end up writing in the horror genre when you hit the big time, and I think you will (wink). -TamieK

Nice touch with the foreshadowing of Ruby's fate and to show us the resistance members reaction to another mother ship arriving on the scene. Interesting, I thought all the ships were the same size...

I would have to say this chapter is very twisted, but true to the statements Julie made to Donovan about her "conversion" in A.C. Crispin's adaptation called "V". As a personal preference I would rather think that her visions included being raped by men than being chased by oversized lizards down darkened corridors. (as in V The Final Battle)... And I cringe when Denny professes his desire to marry Julie. Even with what we have in the Original Miniseries, I didn't see him as marriage material, but a self-centered jerk who wouldn't make her a good husband. How appropriate he turns on her in her "vision".

This is an interesting take on Point of View within a dream sequence. The events are unexpected. I would've never pegged Julie to go after Donovan's son realistically and scenarios like this, even if it is only a dream, would have added to the tension of whatever Donovan and Julie were feeling towards one another before she was captured. So after she is rescued, I wonder if he still has these nightmares and how much he would've second guessed her (wondered if she was really converted), but never said anything all the while encouraging her she was fine and didn't seem converted. Can you trust this woman?

I love how you capture the essence of Donovan and Tyler's "chemistry" with their banter. Nicely written.

That nightmare sequence always fascinated me in a morbid way. And once I became a parent it horrified me as well as still having that strange fascination with it.
But adding Julie into the mix was a very interesting take on that nightmare sequence. It made a lot of sense, too, under the circumstances.
