Great series, I think you were very true to the characters and their "voices"

Stumbled across this one and was dead impressed. Well written, well reearched, characters distinct and well voiced. This is what I come to fanfic for - the missing chapters of the stories I love.

"Considering how few brains Stephen Hillier seemed to have possessed, they'd left a hell of a mess on my clothes." LOL! I love your Ros, and that is saying quite a lot considering I didn't like her much on the show.
I pushed open the door and gave him my sweetest smile, the one that made even Harry take a step backwards. … This gave me a chuckle, too. Ros does have a scary smile.
Is there a sequel?

Then I distracted her by suggesting she might like to try and make us something to eat, reflecting as I did just how withering a comment Ros would have made about my sexist attitude had she been there to hear me...This actually made me laugh aloud. If Sarah's whinging and questions were like tinnitus, Ros's quietly uttered retort would have blistered his ears.
Sarah was smiling shakily, and Ros's face looked like a distant relative of one of the heads on Mount Rushmore, but it finally reassured Dean. He grinned…."That old witch as scary as she looks?"…"More so," I assured him, and clapped him on the shoulder. "But I've got protection. So let's move."...Rofl. You've done a great job of capturing the dry wit of Spooks.

Somewhere under the urbane charm, there was a streak of caveman hidden in Lucas North.
I have been reading right along and really enjoying the story. This is such a brilliant line I just had to comment. This is just how I see him. In fact, I am working on a fic where I mention his caveman side. I think it goes with being English and being raised to be a gentleman. Don't make a fuss. Look after the women and children first. When those two rules come into conflict, the women and children come first. Very chivalrous.

I generally try to avoid works written in first person, but that was absolutely wonderful! The characterisation was perfect. I loved it
| Rachel Smith Cobleigh chapter 12 . 1/25/2013
Exceptionally well-written story! I loved the little touches, like when Lucas could remember the name for a concept in Russian, but couldn't remember the English equivalent. I liked the description of Ros's bedroom, and the way that you created camraderie and intimacy between them without making them lovers. It really felt like all the scenes you inserted, all the descriptions of how the characters must have been feeling, fit in perfectly with canon. Excellent job. Thank you!

This is by far one of the best fictions I have read on Spooks fandom. Its well written, flows easily well within canon, characterization is fairly accurate and is just plain wonderful read.
Stories like this gives a sense of satisfaction to the overall series and when I rewatched couple of episodes after reading this, it gave me a sense of completion. So thank you and kudos to what you have managed to achieve with your story.
Season 9 came as a disappointment to the characterization of Lucas North but I am looking forward to read your take on it. I can bet it will be as good as this one.

Oooh, I am really enjoying this! I've taken the long weekend to have a series 7 re-watch and count myself lucky to have found your fic!
| Raissi chapter 9 . 12/1/2012
I love how you capture those fleeting glimpses of a softer, more vulnerable Ros
| Raissi chapter 8 . 11/6/2012
I know I've said it before, but you capture the characters beautifully. Everything you write is so believable and seems perfectly in place.

I wish you had been a screen writer for Spooks:-)
You give familiar characters wonderfully "real" back stories. Your back stories have me on the edge of my seat and make me eyeing the scroll bar quite warily because I don't want the chapter/story to end. I want to hug and shelter your Lucas from the world and your Ros is so much more than just the "Ice Queen". You can tell so much with so little: "Behind me, I heard Lucas's sharply indrawn breath, but when I looked up, he merely said, "Goodnight then." Eight years of torture and deprivation described with just one sentence. Bloody brilliant.
| Victorianlady-DE chapter 1 . 10/23/2012
That first paragraph reeled me in and had me hook, line and sinker. There is so much I love about this story and this chapter particularly that I quite possibly could write a book about it:-)
Lucas' inner monologue / train of thoughts had me quite literally in tears because your writing is so vivid that I was "there" with him. And then you quite easily break the tension with a line like "I'd practice on something easier first if I were you. Like a spitting cobra."
This is a story for the ages and I know this is one I will reread many times. Thank you for sharing this with us.
