Wow.  Great little drabble!  Very sad, especially when you consider that it could have ended that way so easily.

Title: Chapter 1:

I'm just slightly in awe of this story.  You took an episode that I always wanted to see but that was never made, and captured it and all the characters in it perfectly.  I know you've probably moved on to other things by now, but I'd love it if you'd write more.

Title: Chapter 1: Missing Pieces

Great writing!  I love Major Charles's "voice."  It's angry and stressed and nostalgic and even a bit funny, in a dark, ironic way.  (wow, too many "and"s!)  You perfectly captured what a normal guy who found himself in the middle of all this Centre insanity would feel like.

This is the first piece I've read from you, and I've never seen such a spot-on Sydney.  I'm a big time Syd fan myself, so it's nice to see someone doing him justice.  You're a very talented writer.  Excuse me while I scamper off to read the rest of your work!

Oh, that ending's cute.  I've read similar stories, but this one stands out in the emotion you portray.  It's so understated--no details, we're not even 100% sure who that was at the end--but it's powerful at the same time.  I like!

Wow.  I should have known you would write angst as well as you write everything else.  This story is excellent; a little Centre deceit, a little race against time, but in the end it all comes back to the Sydney/Parker/Jarod relationships.  The backdrop was excellent, and, as always, the emotions were heart-wrenching.

I normally shy away from anything with "Romance" in the description, but I'm glad I read this one.  It all felt very in character (and not at all sappy!)  Your comment about how "she reminded everyone of Catherine" was particularly insightful.

Great writing, as usual.  I gotta stop reading these before they make me cry--and I never cry over stories.  You captured more emotion in seven hundred words than I could have in seven thousand.

Written with the clear, poignant emotions that are your trademark.  Once again, a beautiful piece with perfect imagery.  This one is unique, though, in the way it leaves the audience questioning--trying to get inside Parker's head.  I guess that's the real point of this story.  Great work.

This one certainly kept me reading!  As usual, Sydney was all I wished he could be and more.  I've read quite a few fics, but thus far you're the only author who's been able to make Syd and Jarod actually discuss their feelings in a way that wasn't trite or corny.  Great job!  I aspire to one day writing a piece that's half this good.
