Sam, this is one of the first SH slash stories I ever read (it was on another site and I couldn't leave any feedback which is why you didn't know I'd read it) and it helped convince me that the viewpoint, although it wasn't the way I knew the guys back in The Day, it's absolutely valid. I thank you so much for that. In and of itself, this is a wonderful story, a great almost-re-telling of two cases that deeply affected our guys, and their reactions to them; every word ringing true and believable. Loved it! Pat
Ah, Pat! I'm so very grateful for your comments It's very diffcicult to get the guys' voices correct, especiallyin an AU setting, even if they are still detectives as I've porttraid them here. It takes a ton of time for me to get a story done. My writing is very very slow. This took me more than a year! Can you believe it? Well- I finally finished it! :) And I'm so glad you liked it.
