Thanks a thousand for this story! I really like Carter and you did him justice. :)

Nice story! Cool explanation of what the deal was with Carter between episodes 1 and 2, I always wondered about that. I also liked seeing it from Kinch's POV. He always struck me as the voice of reason amidst the chaos.

Nice followup story from Kinch's POV! Well-written, as always, and easy to read. I have to wonder, though, if they would have taken him back if they knew how much he liked to blow things up! Still a good story, though:-)

Oh this was fantastic. I think your explained perfectly how Carter would come back and what everyone's reaction would be. I even like how your explained why he was a LT in the pilot and suddenly a SGT in the series. I think this combined with your other story on this topic is my favorite explanation of the pilot's inconsistency. Hogan's reactions to Carter were the best.
I also enjoyed that you told the story from Kinch's POV. He needs more love.

This was just absolutely brilliant! Added to favourites!

This is one great story! What a backstory for the way Lt. Carter became Sgt. Carter. I can picture Hogan's reactions perfectly, and that last line . . .perfect!

LOVED this! I could hear Hogan's voice when he's yelling and pleading with Carter. You did a great job capturing him! I really enjoyed both this and Missing the boat because they provide an excellent transition from the pilot to the rest of the series, and answered some questions left wide open by the filmwriters. I enjoy that you made the bars to stripes thing a military snafu.

Oh, this is a wonderful sequel to "Missed the Boat"! Great puns in both titles, by the way-very clever! Kinch works so well as the narrator for this story, and his perception of himself as the one sane man fits so very well with his sensible character on screen. His analysis of his fellow inmates (!) is so dry and funny! Great explanation for why and how Carter returns, and change in rank-very funny gentle satire of Army efficiency there (very similar to M*A*S*H, I thought). And the Hogan/Carter byplay was perfectly done! ("Would you believe it, Schneider's was charging him three marks for delivery! Highway robbery, sir..." "Carter..." It was more of a plea than a command this time.) Snerk!

Oh, very nice; well written from a first-person voice we don't often see, and a neat explanation of Carter's descent from lieutenant to sergeant as well.
Many thanks for the extension of the original story.
| Six of Twelve chapter 1 . 6/25/2011
No, Carter's not dumb at all. That one episode where he came up with the plan to make Stalag 13 the supply depot for all the stalags had to be a good one if even Burkhalter was impressed with the plan.
Nice explanation of how he ended up coming back to join the operation.

A delightful and excellent story. Wonderful as usual.:)
| snooky-9093 chapter 1 . 6/24/2011
Oh, this was brilliant. Missed the boat, and then the bars went to the wrong Carter. Great idea. And I loved Kinch's 'voice'.
| Jinzle chapter 1 . 6/24/2011
I love that this is told from Kinch's POV. Not many Kinch centered stories out there. While this is about Carter and not Kinch it is still a very enjoyable read. Everyone was written beautifully.

This truly was fantastic! All the characters were their funny, fumbling, yet clever and resourceful selves and the whole thing is hilarious. It flowed well and the way Carter got back inside was nicely done! Seriously, I'm starting to get really jealous of the way you write.
Other people have commented on getting the thing in Kinch's voice, but can I say that not only was it good to hear from him (and the voice sounded just right, by the way), I think it was a great choice from a narrative POV. The steady and observant Kinch, contemplating the general insanity he lives with, was just the right person to tell this story. I thought it really worked well and now I think Kinch should be telling far more stories. He's probably got much more of a sense of humour than we ever considered.
