Reviews for A Fire Most Fell
francesca89 chapter 19 . 2/11/2016
This is one of the best L&O stories I've read so far. You should consider the possibility of doing this (writing) as your job. Really! The plot was a succession of turning points and shocking revelations. Only at the very end we get a clue on who was actually threatening Connie.
However, I think that chapter 19 was unnecessary. It created a bit of confusion: how could it be that Connie & Mike didn't think that the baby could be theirs since the very beginning? The previous chapters lose their 'legitimacy' somehow. It makes me feel a little sad about Julian too. Though I guess that the resemblance between him and Michael would be noticed by others as well.
Oh, and I believe that Mike is not much older than Connie. In Innocence it is implied that he is 35-40 years old.
Great job anyway! I could hear the characters' voices in my mind while reading! Especially Anita's and McCoy's!
P.S.: I love Lupo. Poor thing... What happened to him and B.?

Julian Case is Connie's son! Am I right? Eh? Yeah...

****

Wow, okay, so I am HALF right. You know, when it was revealed that Connie was pregnant I had a tiny little thought that the baby was possibly Mike's. I think that ignoring the issue, however, is not the way to go. I think Julian should become part of their lives. But that's just my two cents...

Overall this was a very well written, very engaging fic. I look forward to reading more of your Connie/Mike.

I knew Jack was involved in her "death!"

****

And they walk off into the sunset...

Um...I'm really confused. I don't see how Connie can have been put in protective custody for a year, only then to be allowed to come back to NY and still be a part of the DA's office? Well, not the DA's, but still...a lawyer? And no one thought to let Mike know? Whaaaa?

Oh man, I would have loved to be a fly on that wall when Mike hit Lupo!

****

13 point match? I still don't think she's dead...I hope I'm right.

***

Oh God! Jack looking as his picture of Claire! Oh, that just broke my heart. They were my first 'ship in a TV show. I loved the thought of them together and then when Claire was killed...I was so disappointed that Dick Wolf never let us see Jack's grief. I know that's not what the show was about, but still. It would have been nice to see because we all know that Jack loved her. Man, that was such a lovely touch. I was wondering if you were going to do something like that because of the way Connie and Mike's relationship mirrored Jack and Claire's. She still my fav ADA, you know.

****

Oh...Jack's speech to Mike about burying the pain! I am in tears! After all this time he still loves Claire. You should do a Jack/Claire fic.

***

Hang on a mo...why doesn't Olivia know Connie's face? Wasn't she the one who accompanied Connie to the hospital after she was raped?

****

I KNEW IT! I knew she wasn't dead!

Texting 'I love you?' Really? That's so corny and cute!

****

Ah, I see what you've done here. She's not really dead. Right?

Right?

Oh! Excitement! I am keen to read the next chapter ASAP!

Can I just say that I think it's a bit odd that Connie is still allowed to work while she is under investigation for murder? I mean, we all know she didn't do it, but it seems very un-Jack that he would allow a murder suspect to continue with cases. That's sort of bad publicity, is it not?

****

Awesome! They're already fighting like an old married couple and they're not even dating, technically.

****

I don't really know much about Lupo, but if it came down to him or Mike, well...let's just say I've always been a fan of men who are old enough to be my father. :P

****

I simply love being in bed with my husband. I love it when he holds me and I can hear his breathing and heartbeat through his chest. I'm glad you didn't complicate things with sex. Yours was the perfect way to end this chapter.
adara-greenleaf chapter 12 . 3/6/2012
Okay, so I'm still kinda lost. But that's not a bad thing. I can't seem to figure out whodunit, and I'm usually very good at that sort of thing. You're keepin' me on my toes!
adara-greenleaf chapter 11 . 3/6/2012
And the plot thickens...

I haven't seen the episode involving Woll yet, so I really have no idea who he is or what's going on. But I think it's all kinds of hot that Mike is making more deals with the devil to help and protect Connie.

"No way," Detective Bernard replied confidently. "He likes me better than you."

"Oh yeah? How do you figure?"

"I don't have a crush on his girlfriend." ~ Oh, SNAP!

****

ARGH! Damn it, woman, you're doing my head in! Where the hell did THAT come from!
adara-greenleaf chapter 9 . 3/6/2012
Mike convinces Connie to keep the baby and they raise it together. Am I right? I don't know if I want to be right. As odd as this sounds I'm not a huge fan of happily ever after. What was it Mike said in an earlier chapter? Shit happens. Well, that's life isn't it?
adara-greenleaf chapter 8 . 3/6/2012
"Please, stop running. Let me be in love with you, because, God help me, I am." ~ Wow. I think that, perhaps, these are the most moving words I have ever read as spoken by a man to a woman.
adara-greenleaf chapter 7 . 3/6/2012
Yikes! This just seems to be going from bad to worse! The events...not your writing. Actually, I find your command of the English language very refreshing. Your use of legal jargon is very, ah, sexy, actually. I feel like I'm watching an episode rather than reading a fanfic an that's what I look out for.
adara-greenleaf chapter 6 . 3/6/2012
You can have my bed and I'll take the couch. There's something so very romantic about that offer. Not just between these two, but whenever a man offers a woman his bed and takes the sofa...I don't know. It just warms my heart.

Now, what the hell is up with Connie's rommie killing someone? I hope the answers come soon, 'cause I'm a little confused!
