| cchickki chapter 18 . 3/21
Sorry for not reviewing right away, I've been super busy lately!
I loved the part when Easy Company was in Eindhoven. I hope they'll be able to get a copy of the photograph. Poor Joe, I hope Jo won't be too distressed, he'll be back!
Keep up the good work :)

love. love. love. love. loooooooooooooove.
Ok, whew now that's over with... where do I start?
Some of the excerpts in this story read like poetry.
You intensely captured the jump on D-Day while keeping the reader personally involved with the character.
Your approach is sensitive to the original characters, you avoid making them into caricatures.
To be honest, this is one of maybe three stories in BoB fanfiction on here that I actually enjoyed.
PLEASE don't stop...if you can help it of course.

Wow, this chapter was a ringer for the emotions! This was beautiful writing though!
| mngirl chapter 18 . 3/1
Dang! Well that was intense. Oh Jo (and Joe!) haha. They need to have a proper talk about all of this.
Can't wait for more and happy writing!

Love it! As a fellow BoB writer please keep up the good work.

Interesting chapter. I can't wait to read some more. You're doing a fantastic job with the insight into Jo's head. It seems very realistic!

cchickki: Ah, sorry, Joan and Bernard are the family that Jo is billeted with in Aldbourne. I only mentioned them somewhat briefly a couple chapters ago (which was quite a long time ago in real-time), so I understand and apologize for the confusion!
I wish she hadn't run away too, but them's the breaks, my friend :) Thank you so much for your lovely review, and I hope to have some (at least slightly) happier stuff going on re: Jo & Joe in the future!

I'm happy to see you updated!
I was a little confused during this chapter with Joan and Bernard. I don't remember them, are they natives of Aldbourne that Jo is staying with? Or were they mentioned before and I just forgot? Sorry for my confusion, I was just a little lost at parts lol.
I enjoyed the Joe/Jo fluff! I wish she didn't run away from him, but her emotions are understandable considering Easy Company just got the news that they're moving out to Holland. It was also sweet of Bill to give her write so poetically :)
I'm looking forward to the next chapter, keep up the good work!

Slightly late to the party here, but oh, what a chapter. The pacing is spot on: the first few paragraphs in the aircraft really help to build up the tension, and then the action scenes following are just the right length to maintain the jerkiness of battle.
I love the lines: "The first miracle is making it to the ground in one piece. The second is finding Winters." It's exactly how the real men, I imagine, regard Winters, so that was lovely to read. As for the rest of the chapter... it's so well-written - I love the romantic aspects between Jo and Toye, because it feels like they don't want to rush into things but the nature of combat is such that strong emotion is inescapable.
This chapter is definitely one of your best so far - I can't praise it enough! And I can't wait to read the next instalment :)

Nooooooooo. Well, hopefully you haven't given this up yet! I will look forward to reading an update soon.

I forgot to mention, the bit with the typewriter - the punishment & the bit about 'precious babies' had me laughing out loud. In fact, I'm still laughing. It was brilliant!

The only thing I'm curious about is what "name" he said. Did you mean, word? Because I can't think of a name that would be offensive... Anyway. I'm looking forward to reading the rest!
| bloodredcherry chapter 4 . 10/18/2014
Filler chapters are so important - so don't apologize! Anyway, I'm intrigued & can't wait to read the rest!
| bloodredcherry chapter 1 . 10/18/2014
I agree with your statements entirely - but it's when you make a distinction between reality & fiction that makes all of the difference. Anyway... just piping in with my two cents - I'm looking forward to reading the story!

So, I just read this entire story in one go. It is amazing! I love it! Especially the unspoken dialogue between Jo and Joe. It is really believable and I think it really fits the two of them and their personality. Please update soon!
