LOL! I like how you leave the reader hanging as to just whose visage is going to end up on the Jack o'lantern. Yes, the Hallowe'en pumpkin is becoming more and more popular in Australia and people do carve them here. I suspect that our Hallowe'en pumpkins are specially cultivated and stored for months in cool rooms before being sold for carving, because, yes, it's completely the wrong time of year for pumpkins :)

And to think how many times they were strung up on a wall like that! What would be interesting is what they all would be thinking in this situation. Sure. Some thoughts similar to Jason, but then who knows! Interesting.

He must have oicked u the top-seret item near Washingtoo DC. There are times when I wish i could call in the teeam to just lift my car up out of the traffic and dump it oast the problem.
I agree that you're saying a lot here with few words.

I will remember this the next time I am stuck in traffic!
I love how in just a few short sentences the characters come through.
Tell me there is more coming? (hint hint)
More? Probably not for this particular little scene. In general? Sure :)

Okay, I like this, but it can't go in your Battle AU, can it? If Princess is from England and Jason is from Australia, wouldn't the only one who carved pumpkins as a kid be Tiny? I do wonder whether Jason will be carving Zoltar ... or Zark. It all depends upon which universe we are in! :)
We have Halloween pumpkins in England :) Google suggests they're common in Australia too, so I went with that (though goodness knows where they get them from, it's completely the wrong time of year in the southern hemisphere.) Russia not so much.
Jason's carving Mark! Though I'm not sure he has the artistic talent to make it recognisable...

Looking forward to seeing more of Callan! Plus I learnt a new word :)
Thanks everybody! Comments much appreciated.
Callan as Dylan's love interest...well, I guess they do originate from the same show... Dylan's pretty much Mr Dedicated at this point, I don't think he's noticed the other sex exists yet!

Very happy to see another installment from you! I can definitely understand Mark's frustration. The whole jump process seems very intangible, at least to me. Better the long way around, than having their molecules scattered across the universe, or crushed into infinity.
"Black, blacker, blackest. And cold beyond frozen things. Where is between when there is naught, to life but fragile dragons's wings". ~~Can you tell I read DROP when I was a teen? :P

Eeps. Definitely sympathize with Mark on this one. Frustrating having to trust a fuzzy black box. Can't open it. Can't even define the ins and outs.
Reminds me of trying to convince a TA that it was faster, and more accurate, to do error analysis by asking the spreadsheet I did the rest of the math with, "What is the result if I increase X by the measurement error?" instead of partial derivatives of nasty interconnected equations and assume it's a straight line.
Mark's smarter than the TA.
Next challenge: Can Jason play with the inputs? If we suspect this sensor, and the true number is between x and y, what are the possible results?
And why does a fanfic story bring up classes I took 20 years ago?

I really feel for Sam here. All other circumstances aside, what woman hasn't felt the same way at one point in time? I liked the fact that Jason tried to spell things out for her. And also that one of the first things he told her before the talk, was that she looked "stunning" the night before. I think that alone definitely speaks volumes.

I love your AU, and have read every story two or three times. I would like to point out one inconsistency for future reference if you don't mind...you mention in this story arc that Scott knows that Mark Jarrald is an ISO test pilot, who flies at air shows...but every other story states that Mark has been careful to conceal his capabilities as a pilot outside black section.
Keep up the great storytelling, please!
You're right, it is a bit of a tangled web. The theory is that Mark hides from his non black section colleagues that he's an ISO test pilot, so that if any of them figure out that he must be hiding _something_ and start digging, they'll find that relatively easily. (Similarly, Jason doesn't tell people at ISO Racing that he's a security operative, he says he's just an ISO driver.)
But I confess that there are inconsistencies between stories. One of these days I'm going to sort them all out.
