I loved this story when I read it for the cover Catriona! You have captured Luke and Leia perfectly. Great work!

That was a cool fan fic you really captured Luke perfectly.

Wow...I'm really impressed! In a year and a half of reading fan fiction, I've read plenty about Leia reflecting on her losses after the Battle of Yavin, but never one about Luke. This one is amazing and you nailed the character perfectly! Congratulations on a great piece of work!

I enjoyed this when I was a beta-reader for the story, and my opinion hasn't changed. A great little vignette, showing a side of the characters that we can imagine, but never see in the movies. Good job.

Wonderful story, Cat! Luke right on the money, as always.

This is the first time that I have been moved enough by a fanfic to comment. This was great stuff! Frankly it never occurred to me that Luke would feel so much guilt for the deaths of the men on the Death Star. However, it makes perfect sense given the Jedi affinity for "all living things." I'll be sure to keep my eye out for more of your work.

A great story. It is very difficult it is try to find your path and you capture it!

I particularly enjoyed this fiction because it goes to a place relatively unexplored in the SW Universe. Luke going from farmboy to Galactic-Force-To-Be-Reckoned-With in such a short space of time is indeed an important point.
And although I adore the OT, I have always had a serious problem with Luke's lack of reaction to the death of his Aunt and Uncle. I know in the long run, it was not important to the the overall story ANH, but it left one to wonder...just how DID Luke deal with it?
You captured Luke's feelings very well in this piece. Nicely done.

I have read a lot of really crappy fan fiction, but you are not only an excellent writer, you captured the characters well. I find your writing truely inspiring, which is something I rarely find in fan fiction. Congradulations on a job well done!

I don't usually read Trilogy work, but I couldn't pass this one up! It's so... unique. I loved everything about it and you wrote it with such grace and style. I never thought Luke would feel guilt for his actions and I've certainly never read a fic that spoke of it. Very nice job!

This story cried out to be written and thanks to my wonderful beta reader, Valeda Kor, it finally came together. Thank you all so much for your kind words. I'm glad everyone enjoyed it.

Good job capturing Luke's sorrow and guilt. And having the doctor apparently be Force-sensitive was a nice touch.

Amazing treatment of my favorite character, Luke. You did a great job capturing his anguish... and his low tolerance for alcohol! Nice job on Leia, too. I loved how you tossed in her growing infatuation with Han Solo. Well done!
