Sad that this was discontinued, J was really looking forward to seeing how you were going to do this Suburs ep. But I still had fun reading the whole story! At least it didn't end in much of a cliffhanger ;) Looking forward to reading more of your work (Wonderful Cover Life is next on my list).

This was such an enjoyable and nicely written story; I'm very sorry that you weren't able to complete it :(

Oh, crap. She's preggers. That is NO way to leave the story. Shame on life, huh Kate? Seriously though, this has been a wonderful story and even if you never do plan on finishing it, it is one I will gladly read again. Your Chuck and Sarah are wonderful together. Now I'm off to begin my fourth reading of It's A Wonderful Life so that I can boost those reviews as my Christmas present to you! And how about you let those two kids hook up already!

Too short. Awesome. Like maybe my favorite chapter in the story. And that's why - too short. Nothing like pure Charah goodness. But why do I have this sinking feeling that the condom thing is going to rear it's head again?

I'm torn between skepticism that they should have worked out the whole she killed someone in cold blood issue so quickly and relief that you didn't turn it into three chapters of hair pulling angst. Whatever. I liked the way it was worked out. As always excellent Charah and some funny Casey bits. Hope Chuck doesn't pay too harshly for the tranqing.

I am VERY glad I decided to boost your review count on this re-read. Otherwise I probably never would have realized that I missed four chapters! Seriously, I download the epub from Castle Inanity and read it straight from iBooks, which as you said only has the first 17 chapters. Thank goodness for my desire to pump up a great story and author!
I really enjoyed this chapter. Sarah's "payback" in Casey's apartment had me chuckling, though I somehow figure Chuck is going to pay for it more than Sarah will. There was a bit of jealous Sarah which is ALWAYS fun to read but the concluding of the chapter is what stood out. You tweaked canon to fit your story and it was wonderfully done. The whole Mauser thing plays out so much better as a couples tiff. Loved it.

Pretty uneventful first half of the chapter. But although the Tyler Martin stuff played out pretty much as canon the additional dialogue interaction between the team was fun to read. Really enjoying this story.

The beginning played out pretty much as expected but the rest was all you and nicely done. But then what else is new? I especially loved Sarah's final dialogue to a sleeping Chuck. It was sort of an homage to vs. Coup d'etat and was a beautifully vulnerable and honest moment from her. Very nice.

Saccharine. In a good way. That would describe the opening scene of the chapter. But then...the fake hostage situation. Not good. As in not good what is going to happen next. But this chapter was a good mix of original and canon. Nicely done.

The bit with Lou's coffee was funny. The date was cute and the after date was...nice. Good chapter all around. The Charah just flows.
| tut1971 chapter 13 . 12/22/2014
Now this is an excellently modified canon chapter. Chuck's "I love you" and Sarah's reaction to it, Forrest getting kicked to the curb - all brilliantly done. The Charah in this chapter was exceptional. Well done.
| tut1971 chapter 12 . 12/19/2014
Another good blend of canon and your own ideas but molded for the shift in timeline and relationship status. You continue to write Sarah & Chuck together exceedingly well and I, for one, am quite happy about that. The 49b played out as expected, what a robotic b*tch Forrest is. I really do love this story.
| tut1971 chapter 11 . 12/19/2014
Now this is what I'm talking about. This chapter was gold and it was ALL you. Good interaction and it moves the story along nicely. I knew it was only a matter a time before the 49b and I can understand why you moved it in your timeline. It was necessary. Now the question becomes - will she fail along the lines of canon or will you add your own touch to it. I hope the latter. Last thing, don't like the tattoo. I'm just not a fan of them on women. You women are so beautiful as you are that I don't understand why you would want to sully that beauty with artificiality. That probably makes me a hypocrite considering I have a 1/2 dozen of them myself but I stand by my belief dammit.

Again I have to say that the chapters are much better when you add more of your own flair to the existing canon. This chapter there wasn't nearly as much of that. That said I did appreciate how you had Sarah tell Chuck of her plan and not just bail on him. That was something a girlfriend would do. I think. I've never been a girl. So I guess I wouldn't really know. I guess.
