Today, I drove for 5 hours through a blizzard, to stand by a friend who had to bury his mum. When I came home tonight, I was tired and weary, and in need of a little hope, tenderness and unconditional love. So I re-read this blizzard story, and it did exactly what I wanted it to. It made me feel better. Thank you!
Author's Response: Thank you - glad it helped. So sorry for your friend's loss.

Oh, you wicked, wicked girl. This is NOT long enough!
As always, you weave so many wonderful little touches into your bigger picture and - AS ALWAYS - I am in awe. Dammit!!!
Author's Response: Aww thanks! I know, I'm terrible with the short chapters on this one. I figure short updates are better than none, but I'm sure it's annoying lol.

Great chapter. Um I hope they fuck. Look a girl can dream right?
I bet Luke's dumb ass is gonna come in there and draw the wrong conclusion- not that it would be his business if he did, but I can see him blowing shit up for no reason, because he can be an idiot.
Author's Response: Luke overreact for no reason? Um, that sounds about right.

“It was awful. He wouldn’t even listen to me! I never meant to hurt him like that,” Luke explained.
Really, Luke? REALLY??????
And Reid? I just love 'im, man!
Special cameo by post-election Luke, who couldn't fathom Noah's very justified anger at his actions back then. Luke may be in DA NILE just a bit here.
And poor Reid. Ha! His day keeps getting worse.
Or does it?

I knew at the end of the last chapter that Noah was trying to be the good guy. Yay, Noah.
But Luke still disappoints me, here. It didn't *feel* like cheating, so how could it be wrong? As much as I really want to understand him, I *really* don't! Nothing excuses what they've just done to a person that Luke said he loved - I hope he can a least try to acquire some finer feeling at make it right.
Author's Response: But, you know, there was that small chance Luke could have frozen to death if they didn't make sexytimes. Uh.

“Don’t thank me,” Reid responded in annoyance. “And Doogie’s right about one thing. Don’t expect any thanks from me. You already fucked my boyfriend, so I’m paid up, and then some.”
Author's Response: I wish we could've heard Reid swear. It would've been hella-sexy. Damn you, FCC!
Name: SarahSezLove (Signed) · Date: June 24, 2012 01:24 am · For: Repercussions
Wow! The self-righteousness seems to be catching!
I have to say that I'm rooting (pom poms still at the ready) for Reid, here. Whilst it's admirable for Noah to want to defend Luke, his memory surely isn't defective.
Loving it, by the way!
Author's Response: Hee nobody messes with Noah's man! Er, except Noah.
Name: SarahSezLove (Signed) · Date: June 24, 2012 01:19 am · For: Repercussions
Yep!! Knew those pom poms would come in handy.
Go Re-id! Go Re-id!! The guy definitely has good reason to vent this time, that's for damn sure!
Author's Response: Hey! You're cheering on the wrong side! Okay. Maybe not.
Name: SarahSezLove (Signed) · Date: June 24, 2012 01:14 am · For: Repercussions
Go, Bob!! I'm making pom poms right now!
Author's Response: I <3 Bob!

Oh my God!
And that's all I have to say about that.
Author's Response: MAH BB!

Ah...the old 'ecstasy' ploy.
DAMN, but you're good!
And is it okay to be upset for Reid?
Author's Response: As long as you let *me* comfort him.
Name: SarahSezLove (Signed) · Date: June 24, 2012 12:55 am · For: No Substitute
Ah...the old 'you have to get out of those wet clothes' ploy!
Loving Noah's point of view.
Author's Response: I mean, it's a useful ploy. Luke's very life depends on him getting naked! Um.

Loved that subtle announcement of we're together again in the kitchen! No need to speak a sentence; the actions spoke louder than 10 million words ever could! At the bar A drunk Casey and only slightly high Reid have made there own actions speak louder than words!! What a hangover Casey is going to have!!
Author's Response: I think the tenderness in the physical cues between Luke and Noah is so apparent, no words are needed, like you said. Ahh, Drunk!Casey is fun.

Though Noah was trying to right a perceived wrong, Reid is and always has been ungrateful to anyone has ever did anything for him. Interesting twist Chris with Ali, but then this is to brothers who have tried there best to one up each other in nearly every situation they have been jointly involved in .
Author's Response: I can't say I remember a whole lot of the Chris/Casey dynamic, since I mostly just watched the Nuke storyline in recent years. But it would make sense there'd be problems if both were involved with the same woman.

Only because Noah knows Reid can help others regain there vision is the only fathomable reason I can see he would lie like that.an't seeing Noah feeling any guilt. And as for Chris, entitlement or not, there was a lot of bad blood in Medical School and he will never have any respect for Reid because of it. Casey on the other hand is shocking me, can't imagine him confiding in Dr. Asswipe about anything!
I have to disagree a bit about Noah. I think Noah was shown to feel guilt even over things that were in no way his fault (his father's actions, for example). He almost never puts himself first, and always tries to do right by others. So I can see him feeling guilt, even if it's disproportionate to anything he did.
And on the Reid/Chris issue. This isn't an anti-Reid story, but it is an anti-Chris one. I had a problem that the Chris character was treated as a "good" character on the show, when in my mind he had become incredibly selfish in his actions.
For example, pursuing a relationship with a woman whose husband recently died, even knowing he was hiding his own serious illness and failing to seek proper treatment for it. Meaning, he could very well let Katie fall in love with him, then die on her, putting her through that hell all over again. Not to mention the complete irresponsibility of refusing to see a specialist, so that his heart got so bad he needed a new one - which deprived some other patient of a much-needed heart. As a doctor he should know better.
I do try to write a balanced Reid as I try to do with the other characters - showing his flaws, yes, but also what makes him interesting/appealing to me. The only character I'm purposely maligning is Chris, whose crappiness I'm exaggerating to point out that he was a crappy character, in the end.

The title to this chapter is so appropriate. The two year old Reid never even considered the consequences of his actions and gave Chris the silver bullets to end his Career. I can't fault Noah for telling the truth. It happened and Noah did nothing at the hospital to provoke the attack. . In most hospitals he would have been barred immediately and told to pack his stuff and get out . Bob is trying to be diplomatic , Reid though still is his own worst enemy.
Author's Response: You're right - Reid didn't consider his actions. In his logical mind, he certainly wouldn't have intentionally thrown his job over to go after Noah. But he's hurt and angry, and we don't always think under those circumstances.
