No mission or task is strictly routine; they all have a chance of getting interesting. I know a couple guys who love it when things are easy, because for them they too rarely are.
"Please tell me we're not going to go there and hope he happens to mention something he overheard on the job AND that this something, by this incredible stroke of luck, turns out to maybe possibly be of some kind of use?"
What the hell does he think most intelligence gathering is? You go fishing and hope you catch something good. Do you have any idea how many real-world missions have boiled down to "go out looking for something and hope you get lucky"?
"...please." Please? Please?! Things sure have changed from my time.
There are things that mess with your head and the consequences emerge in different ways at different times. It's...tough. Complicated. Not normal. Not right. But it has to be lived with. It sucks.
"After all, what else were friends for?"
Nothing says "we got your back" like good-natured ball-busting. Sometimes the best help is no special treatment.

loved the story! And very much adored the interaction between the characters. Sarcastic Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were great. Storm Shadow's got a lot of issues to work through. Only his pride got hurt?! I'm sure he's got a lot of it and it matters to him. Only thing wrong with the story:IT'S TOO SHORT! SNIFFLES!

Ah! Finally got around to reading this...and actually reviewing!
As always, very well-written. I love how you write the characters...especially the ninjas. It's nice to see Storm's human side :D
Looking forward to more stories!

Well written, as usual!. Post-traumatic stress syndrome is a difficult subject to capture well and honestly, but you nailed it.
BTW-I would LOVE to see Snake Eyes drunk!

I thought I had reviewed this one... hmm..
very well done. That kind of Trauma can manifest in many ways and you wrote a delicate subject VERY well.

Thank God, at last a story! I've been starving for a story with ninjas in it! :D
...and it's good too! :D

Oh, Tommy you poor dear. "Cuddles comfortingly"
Though...since I'm doing something very like this...I suppose I'm just as guilty of tormenting him and adding to his metric buttload of issues and angst as you are. More so, since this was my idea.
This is perhaps one of your best works. I mean that 100%. Yes, the subject matter is dark, but it is just So. Well. Done. And we both know that this would have happened.
And THEN, in addition to everything else, you have Stalker and Snake Eyes being good buddies for Tommy (somewhat reluctantly on Stalker's part, sure, but that's part of what makes it a great moment)
Also, that bar is gonna have a dent in the floorboards forever.

Storm has so many layers if screwed-up inside his head. It's good that he decided that help would work better than suppressing it forever. Excellant story, your stuff is always so well written.

Nice story, who knows what all happened to Tommy during those years?
| Linuxgirl chapter 1 . 8/26/2011
good to hear from you again, it has been quite some time since the last story (way too long for my liking anyways).
Honestly, could some more plot bunnies jump your way, please (you hear me, plot bunnies!)? The story is awesome and you show Tommy's feelings about what Cobra did to him with a depth I never expected. You're not studying psychology, are you? Because the personalities you create for your characters are almost unbelievably complex and real. I think I've reread "Arashikage" for the third or forth time already.
Now I'm sooo curious about the story from CrystalOfEllinon. Putting a teaser at the end of yours is almost (almost!) cruel. You two even keep the tension up between different stories ;-).

Nice story. I think you dealt with an unpleasant issue well and I think it's very likely that something like this happened to Tommy during his brainwashing. Also, good use of Stalker, Psyche Out, Hawk and everyone, really. It's unfortunate, but it's going to take Tommy years to sort through his issues.
It's also nice to see fanworks addressing the trauma that Storm is dealing with, as the comics themselves barely touched on it.

Ahhhhhhh you don't understand! I AM SO SAAAD! I want to CUDDLE HIM ...but that probably wouldn't help at all...:P But still...
I take solace in that fact that he is no longer in this situation, and that he has friends around him, should he require their assistance, that will help him.
The writing was amazing as always. So touching...you've done an amazing job!
