Very sweet ending for Charlie and Claire. Nice touch with the inclusion of Eko, and the main characters seeing Claire escape the island on the plane.
It's just so sad that Michael is left behind. Someone could have pointed out to him that there were many killers among the Oceanic 815 passengers who moved on, and none of them killed under the duress of believing that was the only way to stop a loved one from being tortured.

Rubbish ending? There couldn't have been a better ending. It tied in everything perfectly to the last season. Another brilliant story has come to an end.

Yeah, my eyes? Watery. This was beautiful. Just beautiful. My heart swelled in the end. You've probably been told this before so you're going to here it again- You're an incredible writer. You have a great gift. Quite frankly, you ARE the best writer that I've come around on this site, no lie.
It's such a shame that Michael didn't move on. I don't understand why people hate him. Yes, it was horrible just horrible that he killed both Ana Lucia and Libby but if push came to shove and you were a parent...I think most people would do the same for their kid. If anything, I didn't like him because of the Waaaaaaaaaaaaalt rant, but that's about it. This fic really makes one feel for him. He's truly a lost soul.
Yay both Charlie and Juliet moved on! Well, technically? After this, they both move on to the flash-sideways world, right? I'm kinda shady on that. Either way, just knowing that they reunite with Sawyer and Claire makes it all the more better.
"Then again he'd always felt maybe the feelings he and Claire had briefly shared had been maybe stronger on his side than hers."
Aww that was my main thing with the CharliexClaire, thinking that Claire just didn't value him the same way while he went all out with his feelings for her. It was one of those...things in their relationship that for me hadn't been really resolved. Your way of...resolving that particular aspect of their relationship was really great. That flashback should be canon. It showed what Charlie and Claire would do for each other, their strength. You justified it. I probably sound high right about now xP Sorry.
To sum up this ridiculously long yet well deserved review, this was an insightful brilliant piece. You expanded on Charlie and Claire's relationship, made us take a liking to Michael, and let us further understand Juliet. You taught us to move on and further await more fantastic pieces on your part :)
And thank you for that ending, it was truely the best way you could've ended it.

Another great chapter, with the touching introduction of Juliet. Everything with Sawyer, Charlie and Claire is on target. You're doing the right thing by writing an extra chapter so the last chapter isn't extraordinarily longer than the others. And it's not just you who can feel something for Michael. Michael got the worst deal in the show; there were lots of killers among the Losties, but Michael was persecuted far more than anyone else. Michael would not have gone over the edge if Ben hadn't kidnapped Walt, and to make it worse, no one else lifted a finger to help Michael find Walt, but when any other original character went missing, there were always lots of search parties. I very much appreciate your showing this side of Michael.

This is great. Juliet's introduction was a nice change to the Michael/Charlie dynamic. Again, your gift to make events so REAL is amazing. It was an awkward meeting, the way it should've been. You didn't try to force anything.
The scene with Juliet witnessing her funeral was a nice bit, it really makes you think about what you're leaving behind.
Sawyer looked more alone here than he'd ever looked before, and he suspected that was because he'd finally got a taste of what life was like when you were with someone who you cared about, only for it to be ripped out from underneath your feet.

I've been lazy and not reviewed this fic . . Gonna do it now!
I love this story! It's always great to read fics by a talented writer. And no, you're not the only one who starts to like Michael when writing about him. : D The fact that he was deeply sorry about killing Ana and Libby makes me feel symphaty for him. Poor guy .
You write all the characters so well . I love how you have three characters who never actually talked to each other or even shared a scene in the same story. You've succeeded brilliantly with this fic!
Looking forwward to the next chapter!

As much as I don't like Michael because of what he did, I think he's very helpful for Charlie(: Good chapter!

Another fantastic chapter! Everything was perfect - Charlie's gut-wrenching emotions and anguish over not being able to help Claire and wondering what came over her, and Michael trying to be of whatever help he can by providing information. I'm sure the conclusion will be excellent.

LostinLost18, great job. This is such an incredible story.. Thankyou for writing this..I look forward to coming chapters..

LOVE THIS. It's really cool how you can make such realistic interactions between characters that have never talked much to each other. Amazing, really. The idea of Charlie looking over Claire and his friends is so simple yet you make it interesting and enticing.
GREAT writing, really easy to read. You're a great writer!

this story is so amazing! I really hope you continue it, because the idea is just fantatsic. Update soon please(:

Outstanding story! I like the originality, and your portrayals of Charlie and Michael are very believable. This feels just like it belongs in the real show, and does a better job of addressing the issue of why Claire and Aaron never got on the helicopter as Desmond claimed in his vision. I look forward to the continuation.

You know if Charlie's in it I'm reading it. I hope Charlie is gonna be left on the island for long. Just hate the thought of him being one of the people left to whisper. Of course I'm ok with Micheal being there for eternity. Great start and I'm looking forward to more. Thanks

Wow! I love this. It's a great idea for a story. I love the concept of the whole thing, and I can't wait for the next chapter. :)
