so wonderful to see jacci, the author, up and about again. (our gratitude to weatherman) i've missed that beautiful style that's uniquely yours alone. loved this heartfelt and moving piece from gemini's perspective. great writing and depiction of his innermost conflictual struggles being raised by raines yet knowing instintually there's a kindred spirit (little does he know how kindred, hehe) and more to life than he can imagine.
it's been a long lapse and of course the dragon story co-authored w/kye is most enjoyable - but now that we've had a taste, tell your muse we're expecting more great things to come from you, sooner not later.
good idea to see it from raines perspective too. i hope anamchara takes you up on that.

yay, great response to the challange!! Poor Gemini, his whole life is mapped out in front of him with that single image of his clone. I like how he doesnt trust Raines is telling him the truth because he is listening to his heart. You have done well, yay youReviewer: Onisius Signed [Report This]

Great short story!
I liked how you told how Gemini felt a deep connection with Jarod, even though he was being told that he killed his parents.
Its possible that the scientist in Mr. Raines made him want to see how Gemini would react to seeing himself over 20 years older. Besides the obvious fact that he wanted Gemini to fear and hate Jarod.
Author's Response: thanks anamchara. I never even thought of that from Raines' perspective, perhaps you should write a little companion piece, his side of the story so to speak. After reading your insights with Parker, i think you could pull that off nicely. Reviewer: anamchara Anonymous [Report This]

Wow! This is very powerful ! I liked it very much.
Poor Gemini! I loved that last line ... it was so sad!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks Phoebe, glad you liked it. What a crisis that poor kid is heading towards. It was a shame they didn't move deeper into this story arc in the show. Reviewer: Phoebe Anonymous [Report This]

Ooh I knew your writing muse couldn't be far away! Great little piece! I especially like the deep buried connection between Gem and the man on the picture that you develop all through this ficlet, in spite of what Raines is saying, in spite of Gem's logical efforts to understand... Love it!
Author's Response: Thanks middleman, you were the one who kicked my muse out of its coma for a brief moment. I am glad you liked it, after reading yours, I wasn't confident that I could write one that wasn't simply a copy.
