I like the way the ending implies something terrible has happened without actually showing it in graphic detail
| ejb chapter 8 . 12/17/2013
Before reading this chapter I took time to read the previous chapters from the start. As I said before in a previous review, this story with its scene changes is just like watching an actual episode of the series with its twists and turns and developing intrigue. The little bit of banter between John and Gordon relieved some of the tension, then the new character of Jacko Leeson was introduced in just enough way to give us his back story before the terrible cliffhanger at the end. Excellently written as always and I can't wait to find out what is going to happen next so please don't keep us all under suspence for too long.

Outstanding chapter, mcj! "Aw" for the find of the bodies at the end, that was completely unexpected, very well done. Gordon and John are really funny here, very real. I'm looking forward to the next part of this story!

Wow. It was a long time coming but it was definitely worth the wait. Loved the slow build-up to what was, ultimately, quite unexpected, and to say any more would be to give the story away. Well done on a suspenseful chapter and a masterly lesson on how to write original characters. Now, bring on the next chapter!

Terrific chapter! Loved it.
Again the sense of a gradual build of tension...we know something's going to happen, but we don't know when, or how... I get the sense that Brains has a feeling, but of course it's hard to run a multibillion dollar business on a feeling, even if it is your genius engineer that's having that feeling! I had to laugh at Scott being quite aware that Jeff is going to have a hard time corralling his youngest...which is proven out by the last scene, which is absolutely delightful. I don't often see Alan and Tin-Tin written as well as this.
And poor Delaney and Hewitt! Felt so bad for them... But of course they've delivered the big cliffhanger of this update! What's gonna happen NOW?

How refreshing to read a really well written story! Thank you.
You're building up the suspense nicely, and I really want to know what happened to the boys. i get the feeling it won't be good news.
How quickly can you write the next chapter?

Interesting chapter - will look forward to the next.

So the intrigue continues. Will the new grabs for Thunderbird Two be required for an emergency in Australia? What has become of the Townsend twins and now that Alan and Tin Tin are in Australia too, will they be involved in a much bigger scale? Poor Brains, he has sort of got it into Jeff just how bad things are in that earthquake zone. I can't help feeling sorry for Delaney too. You have made him into a truly beleivable character.
Great read as always and eagerly awaited and enjoyed.

You kept us waiting a very long time for this update, but I have to say it was definitely worth the wait. Loved the three-way between Jeff, Scott and Brains (poor Brains), and the racking up of tension in that moment. No matter how much Jeff thinks the situation in Aus is going to even out, the suspense rather hints otherwise. Love love LOVED poor old Delaney, caught between the rock (the news reporters) and the hard place (the police commissioner). I think he needs to tell them all where they can shove it (but then you'd have to put this story in the M section). And Alan and Tin-Tin? I live for those moments - thank you! But something tells me this is just the calm before the storm ... the red backpack, TB2 being fitted for grabs, Alan and Tin-Tin thinking they can take a break from IR... it all screams disaster!

I finally got a chance to read this chapter - another good one, mcj!
Now I'm champing at the bit, waiting for the next chapter.

Thanks AussieJo for your comments. I rarely comment on my own work in an open forum but I just wanted to let you know that further down in the chapter you read about the 1989 earthquake (which Jeff alludes to as occurring in 1990) Alan says the following
"I already have, Dad. It was December 1989 actually," Alan corrected his father as he scanned the records he'd accessed a little earlier. "The quality of information doesn't look like it was too crash hot back then. I'm not so sure it's going to tell Brains all that much."
Just thought I'd clarify. Thank you very much again.
Thank you to all who are following this story. The next chapter will be posted soon.
