|Reviews for Someone to Watch Over Me|
| theHuntgoeson chapter 11 . 9/1/2013
What an absolutely charming story, I'm just sorry that it's taken me so long to read it. Such an unusual angle on the Gene/Alex saga, I never thought of her coming back to 2008 to live at Farringfield Green, but it feels so right, and I love the idea of the older Gene haunting the place where his younger self died. I should have guessed earlier that this was your take on The Ghost and Mrs Muir! Beautifully written, as all your work is, so full of exquisite detail, light, shade, humour, poignancy, and the ending is utterly perfect. I do hope this won't be your last Ashes story - plese write more if the Muse grabs you any time!

At first I thought this was going to be a "Truly Madly Deeply" type story that would leave me sobbing for ages! So pleased they both found peace with each other at the end :) so sad at the beginning - leaked a few tears...

That was beautiful, I enjoyed it so much, thank you Siggy !
| monkey-in-hell chapter 11 . 5/21/2012
Finally caught up with this story and the ending is as beautiful and poignant as the beginning. Wonderful stuff as always.

Lovely ending... I'm going to have to watch the film now ;):)
| Eleantris chapter 11 . 5/4/2012
Awww, I loved this! Both the whole story and it's ending. :) I think it'll probably be very sad for Molly that Alex died at fifty - it's not very old after all, but I think it was probably time for her to join Gene again. There were only so many years they could be kept apart. :) This was gorgeous; thank you so much for writing it!

Oh goodness what a incredible ending. I loved everything about this story from start to finish, it had so much heart and captured the real essence of what Ashes was all about, which ultimately was the power of enduring love and Gene and Alex being together what ever- forever.
As Sam said 'God is in the detail'. Thanks so much, I absolutely loved it and will miss the alerts. I know I will reread this again and again :)

So lovely, Siggy. I've always had a soft spot for The Ghost & Mrs Muir and it worked perfectly here. Thanks for writing and sharing and I hope this isn't the last instalment ever of your Gene & Alex fics. I don't want to let them go! ;-)

That was a lovely ending to a beautiful story... a job well done
| Katie Duggan's Niece chapter 11 . 4/29/2012
I have to confess I didn't really want this to end...but I did want the moment when Gene and Alex would be reunited, and I fully expected it would be TG&MM, updated. What I didn't see coming was Monty's participation, but that's fine.
Also totally unexpected: that Gene would just go on being a copper, and Alex's heaven would be joining him at that. Nice to see that Luigi is back too.
But it's with a tear I read all this...

Lovely. Just lovely. And most definitely cheered up a miserable Sunday afternoon with a lousy cold!
Never seen The Ghost and Mrs Muir, but I shall definitely seek it out now. And Truly Madly Deeply is one of my favs, time for a rewatch soon. :)
Thanks so much for writing and sharing, Siggy. Looking forwards to the next time your muse strikes. xx

Oh my gosh! I had tears in my eyes towards the end of this chapter! I'm so sad Alex died but glad she is back with Gene (and Monty) where she belongs :)
Really enjoyed this fic from start to finish!

My mascara is now smeared but thank you for this gorgeous ending. As always you've managed to create a beautifully crafted work, imbued with emotion yet completely free of mawkish sentiment. Kudos Siggy. I confess that I'm greedy so I look forward to your next master work, whenever that may be;)

Love this. Alex got the best of both worlds; as she always should have. Brilliant story - thanks for writing it.
| rebelxxwaltz chapter 10 . 4/24/2012
This is lovely, with a bit of a melancholy heartache-y tone to it that sort of pulled me in. Such a neat idea, Gene as a ghost, and you really ran with it and made it unique!
I thought the revelation of the friendship between ghost Gene and Molly was great, and reaching the newest chapter I almost wondered if Gene actually *was* in the chair and Molly could still see him. I also greatly enjoyed the interactions of Gene and Monty the cat- don't they say that every cat basically thinks of itself as a lion? No wonder they get along so well. :D
Hopefully things will be looking up for Alex soon, as she's had a rough go of it. It was basically genius to have her re-learn about Gene by reading her own book, by the way. *Gives cleverness award*
I think I will stop babbling now. I'll definitely be looking forward to reading the rest of this highly interesting fic!
