A wonderful fic, which despite its brevity perfectly captures all of Georg's stormy thoughts as he ponders which direction to go in. I loved all the sailor analogies - so fitting for him - of sirens, of changing course, and of struggling against winds taking him off course.
I was also was impressed with his regrets about the shabby way he treated Maria after the laendler, and his concern that he would end up hurting Elsa. I love stories where there is a strong nod to his sense of honour and integrity.
A great little story.

Read it three times in a row. Not joking. Extremely well written :)

It was wonderful to read about the thoughts that were running through his mind as he watched her from the balcony. Such wonderful imagery.

Nice way to put how the captain might be feeling when he was on the balcony just moments before going to declarate his love to Maria.
I liked it!

This is a really amazing Georg stream-of-consciousness during a pivotal moment in the movie. I'm very impressed by how well you got inside his head, and I really like the nautical references because here, his mind is kinda like a stormy sea - until Maria appears, and the waters calm. Wonderful work.

Just read it again after revisiting this discussion on ProBoards. Totally love it! Wonderful getting inside Georg's head at that key moment in the movie. So well written!

Love it. I was just thinking to myself that TSOM is one of my favorite love stories. Out of curiosity and maybe even to write something myself if there wasn't anything out there, I Google searched for Maria and Captain Von Trapp to find all this amazing fanfiction! This is very well written (although I'm no expert), my only critique would be the part where he lays out all the "truths" to be acknowledged. It's a little awkward I think. I would just incorporate those truths the same way he thinks the rest of his thoughts. But that's just my opinion. Still great work! :D

Awww, this was beautifully written. You almost feel like you're Georg himself, getting into his head and his emotions. I am looking forward to your new and longer story!
