Just what this story needed - I only just discovered theres a last chapter (because of my holidays) and I love it. Beautiful creepy cliffhanger at the end - I wonder what future stories you have in store...and maybe another story with the interesting Kate? This one's been a pleasure reading - thanks!

Sorry I'm a bit late to the party with this review, but that was a great finale. You have to write more for Kate! Lovely, utterly believable interaction between Hal and Tom. The last little section made me shiver.

NO NO NO!
although - maybe more chairs will be needed - so that's okay.
Nah, not listening, can't hear you *puts fingers in ears* good Hal, good Hal
brilliant story Ruby, loved it to bits - really like Kate - do you think you might write another story about her?

Ahh! love it! love it love it!
Such a great way to end, the jumping around really shows Hal's progression as well as Kate's. And that touch at the end about Hal, arg, I don't think I'm the only one who is praying for something like that to start appearing in the show.

What an ending! So full of potential future malice! You kill me! Such a cliffhanger! Gah!
However, when all the hurly-burly is over, I do like it. Hal refuses and yet...
Well done - though I am sad there won't be more.

After reading Chapter 6, I pictured the whole thing as the next episode of being human, setting us up for the next series. I loved it! True to the being human style and it would work perfectly!
I really hope you are planning to carry on from here, you have captivated me and I want to read more about Kate, and Hal at the beginning of a new 50 year cycle! WELL DONE rubyrosettared xxxx

Another masterclass in writing.
Kate was an interesting character and I enjoyed how finely balanced her and Lord Harry were - both in power and in the hints of humanity that sometimes come out in each of them.
I never expected her to kill Michael but then it became so inevitable.
The ending stopped me dead.
A fascinating read.

Ohhhhh...Myyyy...Goddddd! You can't leave us like THAT Ruby! :O
Breathtakingly beautiful. And it is the beauty of your writing that captures my heart every time. It's the craft, the attention to detail - the poignancy that drifts in, oh so casually... knocks me out every time. If the devil is in the detail then you are devilishly clever, Ruby. And these were my favourites:
"The little bell above the door jangles with annoying jocularity as she enters the café" my heart was POUNDING!
Hal: "Then it's my mistake to make" *sharp intake of breath*
It's not just that you write Hal well - it's that I can HEAR Damien Molony saying the words from the page.
I know this is your first fanfic that you have written about what COULD happen in a future Being Human scenario - instead of filling in the gaps of what MIGHT have been. More please. And thank you. And Bravo! *throws roses at Ruby*

Hi Ruby :)
Great final chapter and a nice setup for a new story maybe? ;)
I think Kate might be right that Hal should be prepared for more vampires knocking on his door.
I greatly enjoyed the story, thank you for writing it :D

Glad that Kate got to see Harry...sorry Hal again but will once be enough? 50 year cycles! Excellent and explains a lot. Just hope that Dominic can keep quiet! Fantastic read :)
| jattdc chapter 4 . 7/22/2012
Another great chapter! Loving the skip into the future! Now I'm looking forward to find out how Harry has pulled it off! No fooling Kate though, wise woman!
| Becca Dam chapter 5 . 7/21/2012
I'm really liking Kate as a character - a strong but not crazy female vamp. BH needs one of these!
Nice to think that Hal, or is that Harry, was loved enough to be allowed to stay hidden away all those years.
| MancVamp chapter 5 . 7/21/2012
Jeeeeeeeeees, Ruby! :O
I don't think I can say much more than that just now... Jeeeeeeeees...
*staggers away, staggering, thinking about how staggeringly good that was*

Possible SPOILERS in this review:
"If he sees an opportunity then he'll take it..."
SLAM - that was the sound of the Sledge Hammer of your story hitting my brain as I realise just where we are going - Hal and Leo escaping together for that 'nice, fat life' that Leo described to Hal in Hal's Prequel.
As ever with your stories, I didn't see the sledge-hammer coming...
Incredible. Thank you.

Hiya Ruby :)
Oh, great chapter. Kate killing Michael, didn't see that one coming :)
And it seems the Snowman is only interested in vampires who kill their maker ;)
Love Kate and Hal's talk in the barber shop.
Waiting for next chapter ;)
