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 is such a unique and clever premise for a story.  I feel so bad for Jinpei at the end.

Author's Response: Thanks. I felt bad for Jinpei too, because that must reopen the grief of losing Joe. -- actually, I also feel bad for Joe because Joe has to realize he's hurting Jinpei by cutting contact, but continuing it was just too dangerous. And then he loses Jinpei all over again.

I like the details you put into this.  I have to say, though, I was sorry to see 1-Rover-1 go like that.  ;-)

Summary: There is a scene in a BoTP episode where Zoltar, having spoken via monitor with one of his less competant field lieutenants, looks straight at the camera and mutters, "That man acts like a fool! I hope I haven't made a big mistake trusting him with this mission."

Becky, I'm so excited to see this all complete and in one piece!  I remember reading pieces of this story over the years; last night I sat down and stayed up until 3 a.m. to finish it in one sitting.  Wow!  :D

Loved the relationship between Anderson & Cronus and the secrets they shared.  Loved the reuse of the word "sacrifice" & reflection on what that word meant in this context.  Loved that once Jason was found, it still wasn't smooth sailing.

I like the girls, but I would have liked a bit more background information into the purpose of their mission.  Clearly, they were giving up some purpose - the focus of their own mission - to help get the Condor out.  Also, was a bit surprised that, as high in the ranks as they were, that they hadn't seen serious action in the 2 years that they were gone.  And who is keeping up their penthoue apt?  But these are minor details compared with the rest of what you achieved here. 

Congrats on a wonderful story, a great addition to the fanon, and thanks for saving Jason from the Top Cow dark side!  

 



Author's Response:

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Julie. It seemed to take me forever to write it.

I don't know if I'll ever write more of this AU or not. So many other things going on. If I do, I'll hit on the twins' time with Mala more.

I enjoyed this too.  It was plausible that Spectra would contaminate the make-up and I loved the idea of Spectra bringing on killer bees and the Phoenix having to go firey to escape them.

Most of the screen caps really added to the story, but there were a couple that didn't match up with the text and I found those to be distracting (Ken bleeding from a different place in the image versus the text, for example). 

I did wonder about the Eagle and Swan's long range potential here ... we see a lot more of Joe and Jun connecting than Ken and Jun.  But perhaps that's my Condor bias showing.  ;-)

Overall, a solid read.  :)

 

 



Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it...sorry some of the screencaps don't match.I may take a few out...the ones that bug me are the ones in the last chapter, where they are still wearing civvies.But I mainly look at facial expression when I choose a pic.I may fiddle with it a bit...

I wound up in stitches the first time I read this.  Tonight, I laughed until I cried.  This is a classic. 

Summary:

Just starting his love affair with racing, Joe meets someone who will have an impact on him many years later.

Written from an idea submitted by Samantha Winchester: In both Gatchaman ("Galactor's Witch Racer") and BotP ("Race Against Disaster") Joe/Jason competes in an African safari race with an old acquaintance, Lucy. How did they originally meet, and what happened? Prefer Gatch universe, but BotP is fine, too.

Date: 03/13/2008 Title: Chapter 1: Birth of the Condor Racer

This is a nice character study of a young Joe, and a particularly telling one about Lucy.  I did wonder what happened to Lucy -- she planned to quit racing and join the family business but what happens later?  Is Galactor the family business?  It makes me want to see your interpretation of the Lucy episode.

In terms of this story, I loved the descriptions, particularly  the sense of place.  The visual of umbrellas popping up in the stands, the dry dust promising a hot day, and the sunlight glinting off the water really came through.  I had a harder time connecting to some of the racing scenes, although the one with the racer forced off the track and cursing from his car was particularly vivid.

I thought this story might work better with less wordy dialogue and a few more visuals thrown in during the racing scenes.  The story itself is very solid. 

Looking forward to the Lucy follow-up!  :)
