This is lovely! I must have missed it when it was first posted. I've read very little about Sally Archer, and this is a wonderful glimpse of her and at the relationship between Jon's parents. The constellations on the ceiling is a lovely detail.
Thanks for the review. There really isn't much to read canon wise. However, in my own mind, there a great deal of stories that could be written and I hope my muse takes me there again.
Glad you enjoyed the story.

It was a very interesting fic. I always wondered about Archers mother and would have like more information about his relationship with his father and his life. This story is a wonderful insight to Henry's life and his wife, before Jonathan was born. I wouldn't mind a second (third...) chapter.
From First Contact on, there are rather interesting glimpses into Archer's early life (with some at definite odds with each other like how he spent his entire life in San Fran but was born in upstate NY.) This discontinuity in the series itself was rather disconcerting but it happened even with TOS although the discontinuities there were easier explained. I think that's just a part of TV series writing. Sometimes the writers just don't check as well as they should to make sure they don't have a 'hole' in the story.
One of the worst I've seen wasn't even in ST. It was in SG-1. There's a scene in an episode where Sam tells her new beau that there isn't a zoo in Colorado Springs. This was a slap in the face to residents here as we have a VERY NICE zoo (http://cmzoo.org/). BTW...one of the funniest things the people working at NORAD in Cheyenne Mountain get asked is "is there REALLY a stargate in the mountain?"
So...long response, I know. Thanks again for the review and watch for more stories in this and later parts of Archer's family life.

I've always been curious about Archer's mother. This brief glimpse of her leaves me wanting more, too.
Your explanation of why Starfleet is located in San Francisco was great!
I'll likely do a few of these over time.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you liked the ficlet.

Way to leave me wanting more! You really set up a lovely relationship between Archer's parents here.
As you know...that's what's great about one-shots...doesn't mean you can't follow them up.
Thanks for the review!
