Pintail, I keep coing back to this one over and over. I see your point on the authors notes but I still really enjoy this fic.
I think the part that does it for me is that no matter what happens, the team always comes back on itself. They close ranks quickly to protect each other. :)

After reading this I do agree with what you mentioned in your authors notes: that a swear word isn't always the best way to get an idea across. The first portion did seem to have way too many, and for me, detracted from my enjoyment in reading.
Mark didn't come across as very true to character to me. I think it was that he was too accepting to the idea of Jason just running off and quitting, and then not looking at evidence himself. Mark can be just as paranoid as anyone else that what he sees on the surface might not be the whole truth. ;)
If anything, the way the characters act and react in this fic, I would guess that this is an earlier mission, not a later one, as the team dynamics are not quite there (but well on their way to developing). This is also indicated (to me) by the fact Mark is still becoming accustomed to using his teams potential to its fullest, which starts with listening to their suggestions (in their specific fields of expertise).
This was a good fic showing how a leader has to be well-rounded and not just give orders, but also to listen to those under him.The basic premise of the story is an interesting one: someone who was once associated with Spectra (accidentally through a husband) but not from the planet. I also found it funny how Zoltar took exception to being next on the woman’s list. Yeah, he would react! ;D
