Wow. Just wow! I'm a sucker for raw emotion, and you gave it to us! Wonderful writing! I loved that you had Lucas and Cleo together. Also, you took the opportunity with this type of piece to tie up many loose ends and questions about where some of the crew went. Loved the details throughout! And I must confess my mouth opened a bit in surprise once you began revealing what was happening. I read a couple of lines twice just to be sure I was reading it right. Haha. All in all, very great piece.

You made me cry, but that was beautiful.

I'll admit, I was a bit confused as to who died at the beginning of this, but as I read on towards the end, it struck me. I'm overwhelmed to see that those people still cared for Lucas and attended his funeral. The quote that Lucas stated is true on many levels: 'You don't know how much you're loved until you die.' I've experienced a few deaths from loved ones myself during my life, and this is why the particular quote rings true to me. No grammar mistakes, so great job with that! I truly enjoyed reading this one-shot, as I though it was wonderful!

SO... I've been meaning to actually *finish* reading this story, so I'm glad you popped up in review tag so I had an excuse to re-read it.
I really love this story. For a story in a fandom I know nothing about, where the canon seems to be extremely important knowledge to have, the story just jumps right off the screen and I really could tell what was going on even though I honestly should have had no clue...
I think my favorite part of the story was the part I never read before now... it was the scene where we find out what happened to Lucas. I absolutely love how you did this. You did such a great job of showing Lucas's frustration with not being able to tell everyone how he felt, even though for him it seemed like he could.
You know I love this kind of a story and I thought you did a great job with it. I'm really glad I actually came back to read this story...

Oh my gosh! I went through the whole list of people, trying to figure out who could have died, never once thinking of Lucas until the end. What a fantastic story!
Very descriptive, very realistic... I was nearly in tears by the end. Great job!

I guess I'd been "spoiled" as to "what was going on," because you'd been talking about it at RLt and such. But I read it anyway. _
I couldn't help thinking this was quite a lot longer than it needed to be, probably because I'm not very familiar with the show, and I honestly have *no idea* who most of these people are. I suppose the bulk of what felt like unnecessary stuff to me would most likely be appreciated by fans of the show who *do* know who all these people are.
On other thing, it seemed that Lucas' letter was rather too specific, as though he knew exactly when he was going to die. Maybe that was intentional?
Overall, it was sad, but with hope. You were definitely successful in that.

This is so sad. I was in tears all the way though. I love your writing and now I hope I can just stop the tears.

WAAAH! I come home from a nice day out and now you have me in tears. This was brilliant I was really engrossed trying to work out who it was in the casket and every guess then appeared, then the realisation hit me :( The letter was really beautiful and started the tears flowed. For once I am glad this is a one-shot I couldn't take anymore!
| Questfan chapter 1 . 3/28/2012
Yes that was a mean trick but you did a great job of it. What a lovely but heart wrenching story. Well done!
| Lynnp chapter 1 . 3/28/2012
That was *so* sad! I didn't realise it was Lucas until I figured out everyone else was there, and then it hit me! What an amazing fic, and I'm glad you had everyone there who had gone before to be with him. I especially loved the lyrics. And as you said, there's hope! Thanks Darcy!
| Mathisblu chapter 1 . 3/27/2012
This was beautifully written and I want to believe it's like that when it's time to go.
| Tez chapter 1 . 3/27/2012
Very sad but sweet. I'm glad that things worked out for everyone else, especially the captain and the doctor, and it's nice that Lucas has Miguel and the others now. I think it's cute that Lucas got together with Cleo after all that time - it's too bad they only had such a short time to spend together.

Hey, hey. I’m here to check out your newest installment. :)
As usual, the lyrics you posted above are very sweet, and always seem to set the mood of the story. Even with the death of someone, and much like families and friends of the real world, it always brings everyone together. Even if there someone has passed away. And, I should know. My uncle died just last year. Another thing that I found interesting was that it’s was actually Lucas who had died, and I didn’t realize that until the very end. It reminds me of several ghost stories, which ended with dead watching over his/her loved ones.
Thanks for sharing. ~xXKiraUzumakiXx
