Just read the whole thing when I saw you posted a new chapter:)

Author's Response: Thank you. I'm already at work on the next one. rnrn-SVR

First of all, I have to congratulate you on your work!
This is excellent as always.
Not for nothing this is my favorite fanfic in the fandom.
I find it very appropiate the way (lots of self-doubts but rationally) you portray the way Roslin begins to believe in herself, not just in the myth. I think this is a point of no return for her character, at the beginning everything was very difficult for her, now she is able to challenge the most powerful man in the fleet for the sake of humanity (she tried to do it with Adar back in Caprica but with the attacks she couldn't). On that score, I like the description of the gazing in the brig very much. You write Adama very well too. His trying to convince himself to do it in spite of their 'friendship`. What a beautiful episode, full of wonderful drama. I can't wait to read the next chapter.
Thank you very much. I enjoy it immensely.

Author's Response: Thank you very much, I'm glad I'm someone's favorite.rnI must admit when watching BSG during the Kobol arc I thought Laura had just totally lost it and I was with Bill on that one. But the great part of writing her is thinking through this situation from her perspective. Kobol is a big change that I feel gives everything in the way they relate to each other so much more momentum. Honestly though, I got through this chapter quickly because I just had a blast finally getting to tie some of the earlier moments I had written and callbacks to the miniseries into this arc in bits and pieces. Those moments (and many more to come) have just been sitting in my head for *ages*.

I loved the chapter!!!
Colonial Day was one of my favorite episodes of BSG. And your version was even better than in canon.
“She looked up toward his seat on the second tier and tried to gauge his expression. He maintained a semblance of calm, but the way he fiddled with his pencil betrayed his anxiety.” I loved the looks Laura and Zarek gave each other.
Thank you for writing another ending for the Laura/Wally storyline. I didn’t like that we didn’t see him again on the show.
And your ending was wonderful, the dance and everything around….again so much better than what we saw on the show….

Author's Response: Colonial Day was one of my favorites as well, from a writing perspective it was just a relief to finally put them in a room together in a situation that wasn't a crisis,and have the freedom to give them a moment to connect. As for Wally, I always thought it was interesting that he seemed to be the only person Laura had known from before the attacks. I wished the show had gone into that a little deeper. It would've highlighted just how isolated she was compared to Adama who has his son and Kara and his crew around him for support. All she had was Wally and Billy and to some extent Elosha and Cottle. rnrnThank you for the review, (and your considerable patience).

I'm very glad you updated because I love this story. Very well done!

Author's Response: I can't leave it unfinished, even if it's taken me awhile...

Glad to see you are continuing with this. Can't wait to see where it is ultimately going :)

Author's Response: I still can't give it up yet. ;) The next chapter should be a little easier for me to get through. I can finally put them in a room together for one thing, and in an instance where they aren't arguing... Finally!

I can't begin to tell you how pleased and delighted I am that you're working on this story again. It's already among the best of the large-scale undertakings in this fandom, and to think that you are only partway into the events of Season One...! Please, please do keep going; there's still so much to look forward to. It gives me a little thrill to think about what you could do with important moments like Kobol, the Pegasus arc, etc. :-)

Author's Response: Thanks. I'm definitely still hard at work (even had to go back and fix a few typos that crept in between all the copy/pasting on that latest chapter). Doing a rewatch helped get me back into the right frame of mind. Still can't quite finish S4 again, cus if I do that means it's really over, but I'm still determined to finish this story, the ending's worth it.

Name: mulch11 (Signed) · Date: May 31, 2010 03:23 PM · For: Guilt & Grief
Thank you for reminding me of this wonderful Laura/Bill/Lee scene with Saul in the background. I remember when I read back than the summery in my TV-Guide that I was pretty nervous about this episode, because I was afraid they would make Laura look heartless and bad. But I loved the episode and I especially loved the Laura-part in this episode.

Author's Response: The temptation with these two episodes is to side with Bill, certainly the emotional weight lies with him. Still, I imagine it must have been a gut wrenching decision on Laura's part and really she was right, in the same way that Admiral Cain was right in her criticisms of the Galactica. Doesn't stop up from being happy though when it turns out that Bill's right even when he's wrong.

I love the way you write every character so well, even though each is so different, you always hit each characterization perfectly. You write Bill extremely well and his turmoil of emotions over Kara and Zak. I can feel his tension jumping off the screen at me. This makes me fall in love with this show all over again and such a powerful episode and you blended in your words brilliantly, especially how you wove the emotions and action together. Great work!!

Author's Response: Thank you. It certainly helps that the source was so wonderfully done, Act of Contrition and You Can't Go Home Again are where everyone gets hooked. :) I'm finding it quite the balancing act to retread canon, but embellished and expanded. It's been great though and there's plenty more of it to go before things start changing...

A great chapter and worth the wait. You always amaze me with such great detail and how you really stay true to each character. I loved Bill remembering his run in with Zarek against what was happeningn in real time. Also loved the scene with Bill and Laura and Lee, that was great and gave Lee some nice moments. Some of these relationships in the show seemed to get a little lost over the series, so I always love re-examining them. Very nice job!!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. It was a long wait. The Bill and Zarek stuff was what had me so stuck for so long, getting the balance right between the present and the past. Still don't know if I pulled it off, but it was a wonderful relief to get to Laura and Lee. I miss the early dynamics sometimes and it's been fun to go back to them.

…give never up hope!!!...there seems to be a lot of truth to this BSG-saying!!!
I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found this new update of your story…and the chapter was wonderful. I loved to read it and to remember this part of season one and especially all of the beautiful Laura/Lee interactions. I only wonder how close you will stay with the canon-storyline in the following chapters?!?!?!?!

Author's Response: Glad to know you haven't given up on me, neither will I. S1 has so much that's good it's surprisingly hard to add to it with any depth, but it's been a great challenge and I do love some of the early conflicts. As for how close I will stick with canon...well that will be the fun part...

Name: mulch11 (Signed) · Date: Nov 04, 2009 04:23 PM · For: In The Space Between
This story is one I just can’t stop thinking about…and I’m so pleased to read in a response of you to another review that you didn’t give up on this sorty!!!!!!

Author's Response: I have not given up, despite the challenges. Alas that I did not get the newest chapter finished before NaNoWriMo hit, and so I'm embroiled in attempting 50,000 words in 30 days and won't be free until Dec 1st. I'm feeling energized again though, so maybe I'll some creative energies to spare :).

Me again! Well what a shock to go from 100 miles an hour with William in his Viper to Laura in her solitude, a bit of a shock to the system. Loved the "she had years of practice in saying one thing while thinking about another" line, how true, how true for her. Also " the Lords stopped watching over me a long time ago" just got me right in the heart. And I love that she paints, I wish BSG had a little more artistry going on other than Hera and her drawings. I was going to wait to review, but I had to get that out. Nice chapter!

Author's Response: I always imagined that a lot of characters had their hidden talents... though the fun on that front is just beginning. And thanks for the reviews, they remind me to keep working on that ever stubborn next chapter that has taken so very long to finish. If I'm lucky I will have it hammered out finally by the end of the week.

Hey there SV! I really enjoyed this chapter, not that I haven't enjoyed the previous ones as well. It really felt like I was out there flying around in those Vipers. Your detail is fantastic and the individual characterization of the pilots is really defined, which makes it great reading and you feel like you are really getting to know each character. Sorry for rambling, but enjoying it very much!

Author's Response: When writing Adama I am always happily reminded that research helps and jargon sure doesn't hurt. I'm glad you're enjoying the adventure.
