Reviews for A Matter of Life and Death
Trinity Le Faye chapter 6 . 5/18/2013
You better hurry up and update... I cannot wait to see Guy and Lucas interactions... AHhh excited
LadyDunla chapter 6 . 5/16/2013
Yes, an update! Does it sound crazy that I was about to do a happy dance around the room when I saw there was a new chapter of this story up? I suppose so, but never mind. This one is still definitely one of my favourites and I'm really glad you're well enough to write again.

I like the Lucas and Marian interaction. Poor Lucas must feel a little bit out of his element in Nottingham, but, like he himself observed, sneaking into the castle is child's play compared to what he was used to in twenty-first century London. I'm guessing that he will need Marian's guidance for some time, but when it comes to spying he'll probably know exactly how to do that in that place. And sorry, I'm sure I am getting way too much ahead of things already.

And I'm glad the Sheriff has already made an appearance. I didn't even question for one moment that it was him. All you needed was just the one line to make it perfectly clear who was coming, so I'd say that was very much in character. "Do I care if Gisborne's bloody well asleep? A clue: no!" There's really only one person who says that and I could almost see it play out like a movie in my head, so that's really, really well done.

So now Lucas is going to see his "double" and I am really curious how that is going to work out. I mean, he has heard already that he looks like Guy, but he's never seen it for himself, so that should be interesting. And of course I'm very curious what business the Sheriff and Gisborne have there in the middle of the night, but that is me getting too far ahead again, so I'll patiently wait for your next update. Very well done! My compliments. (And I am really not sure how this review got so long...)

Glad you are feeling better.

Another great update. You are showing the contrast between the two different times to great effect.

Loving Lucas and Marian's interaction too.

Ooooh, what next? And what's Guy up to?

Just found this by looking at your profile. I'm following your Spooks and RH story and loving them.

I LOVE this. Great idea. I'm curious to see how Lucas is going to fare in the castle with Guy around and all manner of logistical and practical nightmares he could potentially face.

The plot possibilities are fun and you really have me guessing. Look forward to your next update.

Great update, thank you!
I'm really looking forward to Guy and the Sheriff's reactions to Lucas. ;)
lexie2 chapter 5 . 5/1/2013
Thanks for the update.

I wonder how Lucas is going to pull it off looking so much like Guy. It'll be interesting to see, that's for certain.

A small detail; Lucas would have never worn a pair of trainers. Not relevant to the development of the story, I know...

Looking forward to more.
LadyDunla chapter 5 . 5/1/2013
Wonderful chapter and glad to see that Lucas is about to do what he does best. I mean, if you need anyone to spy on the Sheriff and his Black Knights, who better than a professional spy? I'm just curious if his resemblance to Guy of Gisborne will not attract attention and obstruct the operation, but that's probably just me getting way too ahead of things already.

It is a great idea to let Lucas record whatever the Sheriff is up to. That would indeed be a good way to finally prove his crimes and it is definitely about time that someone is doing that, because as amusing as the Sheriff is sometimes, he is also a villian of the first order.

Nice touch with the colleagues are okay. I loved that moment in the show. And in a way Robin Hood and gang are his colleagues in a way, since he's part of the gang now. And that was another moment that I absolutely adored by the way.

And this review is getting way too long, but I just couldn't help myself. I just really love this story. Well done!
lexie2 chapter 4 . 4/29/2013
I'm glad I checked out your profile after reading your update on "Anything but the Girl" or else I'd have overlooked this interesting take on Spooks. I hated what they did to Lucas in Series 9 so any attempt to fix things is always welcome.

I look forward to chapter 5. ;)
LadyDunla chapter 4 . 4/24/2013
Ah, you can't leave it there! Okay, minor complaint session over: I loved this. I feel I am repeating myself, but I just can't help it. Your work is just too good to say anything else about it. You'll have to get used to this, I'm afraid.
Anyway, thank you very much for updating this. From all the three stories I'm reading from you, I think this one is my absolute favourite. Don't know why exactly. It just is. I liked Lucas's moment of thinking about the differences between the England he knew and the England as he finds it there. And then that remark that this feels like home, even with no house in sight. And well done, because Marian would be the one to best understand Lucas's job as a spy.
Really, my compliments and I'll be waiting patiently for the next great chapter.
Torchwood Cardiff chapter 4 . 4/24/2013
Great chapter.:-)
LadyDunla chapter 3 . 4/11/2013
Wow, Lucas just got the shock of a lifetime. You really did a good job of writing that. I'm still curious how it's possible he even had those dreams about Marian, but I'm probably getting way too far ahead of things here, so I'll try to have patience.
I think Robin took the news that Lucas is from the future rather well, which is good for him. Never could see Robin as the type to judge someone too soon, so it didn't seem out of character to me. I like how he fits in with gang so far, especially that kind of friendship bond with Djaq was nice to see.
So, great chapter again and I am looking forward to the next one. This story is rapidly becoming a favourite of mine!
easwioprjewprtj chapter 2 . 4/10/2013
Fascinating story! Really well written and very intriguing; I can't wait to read what happens next. Poor confused Lucas.
Out of sheer curiosity: is the "infamous Welshman" line by any chance a reference to another series?
LadyDunla chapter 2 . 4/5/2013
This is really, really realistically written. You have me believe it. But poor Lucas is really not having the time of his life now, is he? I'm curious to see how he will fit in with the gang. So far, the interaction between them all is great and as far as I can see, very in character.
Favourite line so far: "You're not Robin Hood. You're not wearing green tights." Perfect reasoning as to why Robin can't possibly be Robin.
Great chapter and once again I am looking forward to more.
LadyDunla chapter 1 . 4/4/2013
This is a rather interesting story so far and I am really, really hoping that you will continue this. So, this is me asking nicely: please write more of this? I'm curious how Lucas ends up in the Robin Hood era and how Guy ties into all this. You have me curious now!
