Am on a re-reading binge and in the process am doing penance for not having left a lot of reviews where I should have. You did a good job with this piece. Mark's anger and confusion and hurt, the team being on eggshells, Princess's wanting to help and know what he needs, and Jason's backup to the point that he tries to slug Cronus ... it all feels so right for the characters. The Chief and Cronus really did irreparable harm to someone who was fighting so hard for the entire Federation, ultimately there is no good reason to hide who Cronus was from Mark once he was actively G-Force. I'd like to have seen some explanation on why he felt it was okay to marry and have a child on Riga (depspite just saying that they were used against them) but I can hope that Mark will gain some understanding from reading Cronus's journals.
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. The whole Cronus arc is a bit of a dog's breakfast, isn't it? In this story I really wanted to focus on Mark's relationship with Cronus rather than try to get into Cronus' backstory. I had plans to write more about him and maybe one day I will. In the meantime, life happens.

I am amazed that this story doesn't have any reviews. What a beautiful, haunting piece and what glorious use of language! It's nice to put a human heart on Colonel Cronus. Too bad he didn't get to use it more often.
Author's Response: Thank you, Julie, for your kind review. Cronus is possibly one of the more cryptic characters in this universe, but he's still a bit of a tool. If you enjoyed this story you might also like "Mothers' Day."
