We Will Not Relent reviews
"General Burkhalter has not been seen or heard from since the last Allied air raid on Berlin earlier this month, Herr Kommandant." These words of Major Hochstetter, from my previous story "Never Give In", raise the following question: What happened to General Burkhalter? Oneshot.

The Talking Cure reviews
When you are forced to listen in silence, you might just learn to listen well. And sometimes you find out things you never knew. Takes place after the events of S6E6 "The Gestapo Takeover". Rating changed to T for graphic imagery.

The Box reviews
My third response to the fifth Short-Story Speedwriting Challenge. The burden of command sometimes weighs much, much heavier than normal and never more so than when you are seeking to protect your men.

Endings reviews
My second response to the fifth Short-Story Speedwriting Challenge. Endings, of necessity, lead to new beginnings; yet coming to terms with what has ended is never easy. Takes place some time after the events described in my story for last year's challenge response "A Promise Honored".

A Grand Tradition reviews
My first response to the fifth Short-Story Speedwriting Challenge. Why does Newkirk appear dressed as a female more than any of the other heroes? A peek at Carter and Newkirk's conversation as they prepare for their surveillance mission in the episode "Color the Luftwaffe Red."

Tears Such as Angels Weep reviews
The river such is life ebbs and flows onwards in its course violently heedless of our desires, bearing both heartache and happiness, impenetrable darkness and blinding light, depths of sorrow and heights of joy. We have no choice, we must endure.

A vignette in remembrance of Richard Dawson for the role we will always treasure and remember fondly. Rest in peace sir. The boys engage in a bit of amateur psychoanalysis as they wait and worry.

All Things Must Pass reviews
Please indulge me on this one, as it springs from something quite personal. I hope you find it entertaining. This is a companion/continuance of 'God Save the King' that is a oneshot for now but could possibly be expanded upon in future .
