Loved getting some backstory pieces and see how B'lenna dealt with those "Thirty Days".
Somehow I had never considered where/how she dealt with him taking off to Monea but the "promise" to Tom was perfect.

I haven't read this since you first posted, and I forgot how good it is. Like, I'm a little angry at you it's so good. What an amazing insight into B'Elanna's character. Your use of language is really beautiful in this one. Well done!

I can picture every scene so perfectly from the way you wrote this. Lovely, lovely, Delwin.

This was really great. Love to see how it was for B'Elanna while he was in there. Please write them again soon.

"She could probably count on one hand the number of people who would notice whatever level of foul mood she chose to be in." I can also count on one hand the number of people who would notice and are able to convey the complexity of levels in the character of B'Elanna Torres.
This is a much appreciated addition to the story of this part of the fifth season. The flashbacks provide added depth to all the relationships and enrich the story. I do like that you didn't wrap everything up in one neat package.

Knocked it out of the park again. Thank you.

This is awesome. The best fic you have written, and the previous ones were excellent.
"flinging the ship back and forth like a wounded targ" was an early highlight.
And "It wasn't about Tom. Except it was, in part. Because it always had been." is such a great lead in to section I and the early season 1 adventure, which has all that superb technobabble, B'Elanna feeling a little jealous of Tom and Harry's new friendship, and the B'Elanna/Chakotay conversation that would have been nice to see on screen. Harry worrying about guidelines and the "Starfleet inspection team" quip made me smile.
The shift in B'Elanna's opinion of Tom from I to II was extremely well written, the hints to the events around "Investigations". B'Elanna's complete discomfort at the whole Rakosan visit, Janeway's open acknowledgment that B'Elanna had surpassed her expectations.
The "pizza" scene was lovely, with Neelix portrayed as "full of the hard-won wisdom that his clownish appearance often belied." - great choice.
Chapter/section III has so many great lines I could quote the lot, but I'll limit myself to "subterranean spaces", "Trapped, powerless, her most basic choices stripped away." and "chose you both times and to hell with any rules".
IV - love how you brought in a mention of Harry, the "Barge of the Dead" reference with the sea, the betrayal.
And I love that the J/T confrontational atmosphere is left partially unresolved. Endings with everything tied up are not always warranted or desirable, and in the case of this story the "I can do the job, Captain" and Janeway's tired response works perfectly. As does the last line.

This is a wonderful character study, on so many levels. I love that you don't attempt to explain, rationalize or diminish B'Elanna's contradictions and contrariness, but instead embrace them and allow her to keep them at her core. That last line is priceless.
