Bio:

I watched BotP for the first time in 1978.  It was a great way for a nine-year-old to escape the stresses of moving to a new school.  Fast forward to 1999 -- I was getting ready to start graduate school and found myself reaching back to my BotP "friends" to deal with the stress.  I've been writing BotP fanfiction ever since.

My stories tend to explore the home life of the BotP team (such as it is).  Jason is my favorite character, but lately, I've been having fun thinking about and writing stories from Tiny and Keyop's perspectives. I think these two characters are sorely underutilized in BotP fanfic. 

I do have a tendency toward angst and hurt/comfort fics - particularly in my Feathered Hearts series - so please heed the story genres if that's not your cup of tea.  I do try to flag things appropriately, but my newer stories are likely to be marked more accurately than my older ones.

I enjoy beta-reading, but I am only comfortable reviewing in the BotP universe. That said, the Gatchaman world is growing on me! :-)

This story is an excellent example of why you are one of the best BotP fanfic writers out there.  You really excel at mission-driven pieces.  You've clearly given a lot of thought into how the jump-drive works in your AU, and how it might fail.  You've clarified Jason's problems in earlier stories and you bring them to bear here, allowing him to rise above his physical limitations in a time of crisis, in part because he can finally accept that he needs to ask for help.  This provides for a nice progression and development of his character.  The use of Team 2 also works well here and allows for a smooth introduction to your second team.   I could have used a bit more description into how they finally fixed the big ship -- rewiring can only go so far -- and I thought the ending with the birthday party fell a little flat, given such a spectacular story and rescue.  But those are very minor details in an otherwise stellar story.  Nice job!

Thought provoking and detailed analysis of Keyop's origins - explains so many curiosities about his character.  I enjoyed this piece immensely.

Author's Response: I always felt that Keyop was a bit hard done by in canon -- the whole "grown from a single cell" thing and then the speech impediment. Poor kid. Thank you for your review.
