Oh God. Just when everything was going well and feeling normallish. :/
I'm so happy this is back. It's such an engaging story on all its levels. I think you're doing a really good job with the crime aspect actually. I thought I had a clue but now I'm not sure, and you're showing how the characters unravel things, step by step and with evidence, which is the thing I love about S&B.
Kevin is generally not my favourite character but I like him here - his efforts to make Gill proud, the slow realisation that work can be good, his genuine pride.
Hope there's more soon because I'm trying not to think about Gill lying in hospital.

Nooooooooooo, Gill can't die, pleeeease. Kevin really is a good officer when he puts his mind to it :)

I love this story so so much. The way you tell it is just perfect. It has taken me days to review this because every time I looked at it my brain just went waaaaaaaaah!
Love the visual quality of the opening, like a series of film shots, and Julie's attitude - that mix of matter of fact and deep hurt. I thought the bit about Gill's expressions and the disturbing peacefulness was flawless - so real it makes me shiver.
The 'emergency pair of comfy black pumps' made me laugh, even in the middle of all the grief. Of course Julie would only need them in an emergency!
Rachel's awkward broken attempt at trying to explain what Gill means to her in a sentence - I died! And her and Julie's whole conversation made my heart ache. It was ever so slightly funny in that kinda hysterical way that you feel after that much grief. And when they hugged... ! (the feels!)
One of the random things I loved in this chapter especially was that it captured one of the odd tones of the programme itself that I love - you kept it all about friendship and there's nothing shippy in here but it makes me want to go away and ship them all like mad!
Ridiculously long review but I will wait and wait and wait for the next chapter.

I LOVE this! Although, could you lot PLEASE stop hurting Gill! My feels can't take much more!
You are such a good writer, and I NEED you to update this like NOW? :D
Oh, and not to be "pedantic" but in the second part you've written DC Janet Scott .. isn't it DS Janet Scott? :) But Well done pal! xxx

Oh so many feelings! I love: Taisie and Elise - for being their normal annoyingly loveable selves and for looking after Sammy; Janet's people skills; Rachel's mind-reading; Kevin showing his caring side; Rachel charging straight in to hold Gill's hand - when she cares she really cares; the case (I have a theory!) and the way it works into the personal storyline just like in an episode; Sammy - just everything about Sammy here; the whole last paragraph and especially the last line. Beautiful.
I want to hug them ALL now!

I love this so much, I really, really do! It has to be one of my favourite stories I have come across. You writing and portrayal is beautiful and I cannot wait for the next installment! Xxx
| GirlonaBridge chapter 3 . 6/7/2012
My heart aches for them all. This is so well written and so moving.
Trust Janet to carry on and go into work even after a night like that.
As for Sammy, I just want to give him a big hug!

Great update hun, it was worth the wait. Can't wait for the next installment .
| HedgieX chapter 2 . 5/15/2012
Don't know how I missed the first chapter of this, but I've just read both of chapters now, and it was like a double dose of amazement all together ;)
I loved the relationship between Sammy and Gill in the programme, it was adorable how he admired her and she loved him but neither of them showed it very often. There weren't enough scenes between them, and you've captured it all perfectly here. I can imagine it all happening.
Please don't kill Gill, because I might cry, and that would be awful. I'm looking forward to seeing how Sammy and Janet cope with the aftermath of the accident, and of course how the syndicate cope without their boss too!
Sorry, long review again o_O xx

Poor Gill! This is so upsetting but so well written that it's brilliant. Poor Sammy too, and you put across Janet's distress too even though she is not the focus of the scenes and she's trying to be strong for Sammy.
I'm dying to know how the others are going to react, what's going on in Janet's head, if Gill is going to wake up, and how she is going to be if she does.

OMG don't kill of Gill. She's my favourite. Good start :D
