This story is gold! Oh boy, you have no idea how happy reading this made me! Okay, granted, I was cringing and whining during some parts but the end was just adroably fluffy enough to fullfill both my need for excitement, a kick in the teeth, emotionally speaking, as well as something that made me smile and grin. Great job!

Nice story. I was surprised to see how few stories there were for Being Human. I just started watching the show and I like it. Granted I'm on season three and I do see it going down hill but you'd think there'd be people writing fanfics to fix that.
Thanks for writing a great story.

I really, really enjoyed this.
You had everyone completely in character all the way through, especially Mitchell and George. You showed their friendship and brotherly-bond perfectly and there were lots of wonderfully touching moments yet they never went over the top or became too mushy.
Whilst Annie wasn't in it much I liked the scenes where we did see her. I can just imagine her frustration at not having tea bags or milk and so offering hot water instead!
The action was really tense and played out well. I liked how there was always an undertone of humour to it, just as there is on the show (or at least was up until mid S3).
There were lots of lines I wanted to quote but this stood out as it really does encapsulate Mitchell's character and the friendship he and George share;
"The most compassionate friend George ever had held a reputation that frightened monsters."
It was always hard for me to imagine the Mitchell we know and love - as George does - being the man the other vampires speak of. Mitchell's own explanation for that difference in your final chapter was a nice follow on from that and made perfect sense. It's exactly how I imagine he felt in canon.
I also simply had to chose a funny bit, of which there where many, and in the end I went with this as it was just so very Mitchell and George;
"George got to his feet and went to him. 'What was it you said? 'I just don't see what you're gonna do with it, George'.'
Mitchell's brow furrowed. 'Since when do I have a French accent?'
'That wasn't French! That was totally Irish.'
'I don't know what that was,' Mitchell said, 'but it was not Irish.' He closed his eyes and rested his head against the wall"
As I said at the start, I really did thorougly enjoy this and it was nice - if bittersweet - to 'see' Mitchell and George in all their glory. It took away a very tiny bit of my disappointment over S3.
Great story :)

Oh, no, is this the end? It has been a wonderful story. You express these characters' love for one another so well, it is a balm for the dissonance of the canon last season. I hope you give us lots more stories in this genre.

i realy liked this fic, nice job

Liking it very much, mogue! Beautiful writing, heavy on the tension, the angst and action, written superbly well.
One point though, just in case no one else has mentioned it yet, Exeter is in Devon not Cornwall, though it's only about 40 miles from the border with Cornwall. Seems a little nitpicky, but, believe me, it's like two different countries down there - no kidding. Devon is English, and Cornwall is for the Cornish.

This has been an absolutely terrific fic to read and a joy to review. You've kept the pace and the tension top notch all the way through and managed to keep the humour intact also. Absolutely loved Annie worrying about 'her boys' and that big speech when she sees them again and asking if they're alright etc, she literally doesn't draw breath and i could see her doing that in the show.
Thank you for sharing this, it's been a pleasure to read! :)

More brilliant writing. Seriously (I consider myself a good judge!;) Very tense, you can almost taste Mitchell's fear for George. Love the details you include which show the strength of affection he has for George. Curious about this tasting place... and what specifically they want with George... or maybe they want Mitchell?
Question: did someone help you with the Bristol accent for Roger and the red-head shop assistant?

Really well written. Love your writing style, if not the George-whomping :(
Text messages from Mitchell v cute. Love!

Great story - I'm enjoying it, but Exeter is in Devon, not Cornwall.

Oh!...i didn't realise i'd got to the end of the chapter til i did, i was so engrossed!
Love this fic so much, the plot keeps me constantly engaged and i love how you write George, that last quote about watching Mitchell send the vamp to 'wanker hell' was a zinger!
Looking forward to your next chapter, very sad it's the last, hope you have something else up your sleeve!

Good grief that was an *amazing* update. I could see it all unfolding in my head and tension was incredible. Thank you for updating so quickly.
I'm sorry to read that you had a bad day yesterday, i hope today isn't as bad :)
| krimsondelamber chapter 5 . 3/23/2011
Sorry you had a bad day, but thanks for brightening mine with this chapter. The fact that there are only a few more to go is NOT good news. LOL. I hope you have other stories to share with us after this one. I love the way you portray the relationship between Mitchell and George.
