Your ability to write such moving stories is amazing. Normally I don't read story with less than 5000 words as they often tend to be rushed, but since your stories are all connected to each other they work beautifully. You really managed to add a lot of depth to the E2 universe which had way too little screen time in the actual show.
Oh, I could write a whole book on the E2-verse! Now that would be a project.
I identified with Lorian, and with Jon (my own father died far too soon). It makes total sense to me that Jon still wouldn't be over his dad's death, or that Lorian would turn to Jon for solace, and eventually think of him as a surrogate father. A loss of that magnitude-- it changes everything.
Thank you for taking a chance with a shorter story. ;) I appreciate your comments.

After half a year of not re-reading your Reconnecting series, I did so lately, because I featured it as the "classic of the month" in my classics thread over at Triaxian Silk.
You've mentioned some of your background stories in your replies to my reviews and I finally started to read them - and god almighty! I agree with Aquarius' review. This story is unbelievably moving and you may consider yourself informed of the fact that you can make grown men cry. That's a very rare talent you have and makes me wish that you would take up writing again.
This story meshes in with the respective scenes in the Reconnecting series and adds even more depth to it. A woderful piece of writing. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Thank you for spotlighting the Reconnecting Series - I appreciate that.
"Childhood" is very special to me, because I love "E2" and I love the character of Lorian. I didn't consciously plan to set all the stories in the same universe, but as it began to work out that way, I found that it really helped me to develop the characters in the Reconnecting-verse. And I loved writing "missing scene" stories. So many possibilities.
Thank you for reading and commenting. Nice to see another review from you.

Very touching, thank you.
Thank you so much for reading. :) I deal with loss in a lot of my stories, and it was a comfort to me to imagine that Lorian and Jon would lean on each other, and share a deep understanding of their mutual grief.

I can't believe I've never seen this one before. This is a real tearjerker. And I don't say that lightly. I needed a minute before I could start writing this review. And a kleenex. (I'm not kidding.)
I love this so much I don't even know where to begin. I think that it began with such familial bliss made the "drop" so much more effective. And I love Lorian here. I love T'Pol.
I don't often thank people for making me cry. But thank you.
I'm so touched by your comments. Thank you.
I didn’t start out to write this story. I was working on another story at the time, and speculating about how Trip died in "E2" because I wanted to refer to it. But as I researched and worked out a scenario, the muse started nudging me, and she just wouldn’t let it go. So I started writing, and this story just came pouring out of me. I didn’t realize until then how much I needed to tell it.
