I just found this story, and I've spent the afternoon reading it straight through. I've been riveted. I love the characterizations, the interactions, and especially the backstory. You've handled every detail perfectly. I love your portrayal of Neville, especially - I really appreciate a strong Neville. Great job. This one goes in my favorites.
I'm glad you're enjoying the story. It's a bit long to read in one marathon session, isn't it? Of course, part of that length is my effort to not make the characters cookie-cutter templates with interchangeable lines of dialog. Thanks for the feedback.
