This was an awesome chapter, the story keeps getting better and better.  Yeah, I agree about the depth and complexity.  It looks like everything is coming to a head and we'll be getting some answers soon. 

But it also looks like they're headed for a separation - temporary, I hope - but it's going to be heart-wrenching nonetheless.  It'll be hard to wait for the next chapter.

It must've been hard to write this chapter, because by the end I was drained just reading it.

“Thanks for my life.”
“Thanks for mine.”

Sob.

“I’ll find you. You hear me?” ........... “I will find you.” .....Could be years.”
“I’ll wait.”

Sob.

“You take care a my Jack.”

SOB!

Sigh.  Yeah, it was awesome angsty - and awesomely hopeful, too.  I'm holding tight to that little checklist of Jack's:  Stupid things like you and me in a house with a dog and a vegetable garden, and Sunday mornings in bed with coffee and the paper.”   But I know that won't happen overnight.  Lots of scary stuff ahead, I'm sure.

Lori, if you hear/read this, I can't comment on lj, but this was your best chapter ever! Just like Marie, I was drained after reading it, but thank God they made up before having to leave each other...  :'(

Thank you for an amazing story, I am soooo hooked!

This story is just so, amazingly good!  Tonight I finally had a chance to read this new update and was blown-away as usual.  My favorite thing about it (besides the great tension/relationship, etc. between Jack and D) is that I really can't figure out all the elements of what's going on (at all) yet.  It makes it really suspenseful and intriguing.

This is like sitting on the edge of your seat and watching a movie - a really intelligent, top-notch thriller/love story.  Awesome and amazing.  Both these guys are so damn smart, but, yet, so damn human. 

That wouldn’t do for Jack. He’d have better. Someday.

That killled me.  And I'm scared.  Really scared.  There are bad, bad people after them and I can't help but believe that bad, bad things are going to happen before everything gets worked out...eventually. 

But I'd rather think about D's gift to Jack:
