Chris, this is a wonderful and it makes you think. They are, after all, only kids sent to do a job most men find difficult. The emotional stress must have been crushing at times. It's no wonder Jun is medicated and Ken committed suicide. Living post war, how do you cope with "normal", indeed, how would you even define it?
Author's Response: Thanks! It was an intense piece to write.

A very ominous story, with that constant drip, drip, drip of blood.
Poor Jun having to go through that - although it sounds like Ryu and Jinpei are there for her. It would be nice if Jun could get to the point of remembering the good things about Ken and Joe without the pain of this memory.
Author's Response: I think she'll get there, especially with so much support.

That drip, drip, drip was daunting. A haunting story, Chris. Nothing like being haunted by your friends.
Author's Response: She might not mind so much if she wasn't so seriously pissed at them. Though she'd like them to take the blood with them, the idiots.

Very, very sad tale...but the war took it toll, on some more than others, on some more than they let on.
Author's Response: Thanks ... I had to get the story down so it would stop rattling around in my head and bumming me out. Heh.

It would be impossible for the team to have fought Galactor for all those years without it affecting them all in some way, no amount of training or preparation can truly convey the horror that war really is.
I can easily imagine Jun being so affected by the way everything turned out, and at least she gets the help and support she desperately needs.
Author's Response: Yeah, even the first war is supposed to be 3 yrs long, isn't it? I think Nambu probably has her, Jinpei, and Ryu in bubble wrap at that point. :)
