I'm not sure I have the words for how much I enjoyed reading this fic.
I do know that in the days it took me to read it (alas, couldn't binge due to actually having real life obligations now and then), I kept having to remind myself that this was reading material, not something I was watching on TV. Yet even with those reminders, I actually found myself sitting down on the couch and reaching for the remote when I found time to keep reading, as if I was going to hop onto Netflix and unpause the episode. Major, major props to your descriptors and the way you wrote each and every character for that. Everything was spot on, and you managed to weave a fantastic crime thriller with a compelling(ly evil jerk of a) criminal alongside all that character development.
It really sucks that Breakout Kings was canceled before its time, but I'm so, so happy that I managed to find this fic. Looks like this is the only piece you wrote for this particular fandom, but thank you for the ride.

Ohhhhh man things are starting to get real
And then there's me like a kid in a candy store as I read your descriptors.
Full steam ahead!

Ahhh this is such chaos on my emotions. It doesn't help that I'm exhausted while reading this, so I can completely connect with Julianne's inability to sleep. Loving how you're writing everyone - I feel like I'm watching an episode play out on TV with how well I'm picturing things as I read.

That was really good! The characters sounded natural and the plot was just like the series. Nice job!

Absolutely love this story, I didn't want it to end :).

You should do another one. Enough said.

Wow, this was amazing, by far the best Breakout Kings story I've read. This really felt like an episode, and I like how everyone got their time to shine

I loved all the small details in the story and how you wrote the characters. You really got them right.
The plot was also amazing and I think that you did a great job giving enough "air time" to each character.

This was like reading an actual episode, which are about my most favourite stories ever.
I could have done with a bit more of Lloyd at the end, but I'm helplessly fixated on him, so that's maybe not a qualified comment. g
I especially loved Shea in this story, because I think he gets a little too little time on the show, so he doesn't get to show and develop his character as much as the others do.
This was a thrilling read from beginning to end.

Excellent fic. Definitely the best I've seen in BK. You do the characters well. I can believe it happening. I also love the little things you include like, "I SAID MOVE."

I don't usually do this but I really can't get enough of this story. I keep rereading it and wanting to reread it.
The choice to injure Lloyd in the way you did was so simple yet so unique. I like to write stories and I'm not sure if I would have thought of this. It adds a lovely dynamic and I love the fact that it was such a big deal to Shea and yet Lloyd never really did. Also, the subtle friendship between Lloyd and Shea was perfect.
The characterization was great across the board but it was absolutely amazing with Lloyd. I so wish you had more and desperately hope you chose to write more for this fandom.

I was absolutely blown away (no pun intended) by this story and that's saying something because I'm usually very picky. It had an amazing storyline and had a little something for everyone. I love Lloyd and I've been dying for them to injure him and see how it plays out so this was lovely. Well-written, intelligent and it balanced everything out so nicely.
I do wish I could've seen a bit more of Lloyd's recovery or at least brief interaction between Lloyd and the others but you certainly made it clear he was still on their minds so it was ultimately still great.
I'm about to go on your profile and I'm hoping there are more stories. Regardless, I hope to read more from you for sure!

Loving this so far. Just found Breakout Kings and I love Lloyd. I like to think that you wouldn't kill him but I guess I'll have to keep reading.
