I'm a sucker for any pre-Enterprise getting to know Malcolm fic. This is just lovely. Such nice use of a couple of tidbits from "Shuttlepod One" and nice character development for Ruby. Favorite line has got to be:
“You space cowboys think that you’re such complex characters but you’re still just guys, you know?”
I wasn't familiar with The Kenny Chesney song, but this story made me think of another from the 80s or early 90s. I've spent the last two days trying to think of who sang it or the title. Finally came up with it: "Save the Best for Last" performed by Vanessa Williams. I think that's Ruby's song.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
Until I was assigned the song for the challange, I hadn't heard the song either. Listening to it with the challange in mind, Malcolm came to mind and pulling the Ruby piece from the series just seemed the right thing to do.
You should write a story to "Save the Best for Last" with Ruby as the star.

Nicely done! I didn't immediately notice where you'd worked the song into the story it was woven in so well.
Actually, there's a couple of things I like about this story. For one, you capture a younger Malcolm very well. The introspection he has here fits the timeline of this story and a younger man in the midst of more serious dating and relationship chaos. He came across as Malcolm, but not the more experienced officer of many years later.
I also like how well you fleshed out Ruby. She doesn't come off as a caricature but exactly what you'd expect from having been described by others. She's kinda like the Guinan of this era. :) And of course, I liked the cameo of the guys through Malcolm's eyes as strangers who worked for the same organization.
Also, this was a fantastic line: "His words turned as bitter as the malt beverage in front of him."
Very nice! Thanks for taking part in the challenge.
Thank you for the rewview. I'm glad you like the story. I apologize for not responding quickly but my work schedule has been rather hectic as of late.
When I was given that song, I wasn't really sure where to go with it but one line spoke to me of Malcolm..."I hate my life." Malcolm is really such a sensitive soul that I could see a break up like this affecting him that way...becoming something to protect himself from in the future and one of the reasons for the 'I could never get close" that we saw in Shuttlepod One.
Ruby...yeah...the few glances we saw of her...and the way she was talked about at other times...I think she was someone the guys felt comfortable with. A good ear and occasional love interest but nothing too serious (unless they guess those names.)
As to Jon and Trip...well they just walked into the bar and I couldn't ignore them. I figure after their meeting in First Flight they did tend ot hang out with each other and it wouldn't be that strange to see them getting a beer together.

I really liked the glimpse of Malcolm you showed us, and you worked the song so deftly into the story, too! I can picture him being depressed about a breakup that wasn't his idea.
You've also portrayed Ruby exactly as I envisioned her as willing to listen and having good advice.
The cameo of Trip and Jon was well done. I particularly liked how Malcolm deduced their specialties (engineering and hot shot pilot), and surmised they were with the Warp 5 program.
Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I figured that as tight as Malcolm kept his heart, there had to be at least one of his relationships that had really hurt him. It also explains why Dani wasn't one of the girls who left a message for in Suttlepod One. She'd broken his heart and even after he died, he wouldn't want her to know how deeply she'd affected him.
As to the he guys...yep...they walked in and I couldn't ignore them. I figured with Malcolm's background...being a Sherlock Holmes wasn't a far stretch.

Nice way to use the song! I can definitely sympathize w/Malcolm's emotions in this story. And seeing a cameo from Trip and Jon was fun.
Ruby's pretty perceptive about Malcolm. She's right.
Thank you for this, asearcher!
Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. When I read the verses for my assigned song in the challange...it just hit me as a Malcolm song. As to the guys...they just walked in and I couldn't ignore them. As to Ruby...I think she's pretty perceptive on most of her clientele. The best bartenders/cocktail waitresses are...and Ruby's good at her job.

I really enjoyed this story very much. I could hear Malcolms voice very clearly. All the emotions rang true and I did like Ruby a lot. (She is absolutly right about Malcolm ;) Trip and Jon in the bar was a nice touch too. You worked the song into a great story.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed reading the story. I really like Ruby as a character. I think from what we did see (or hear) of her, she was definitely one of the group.
Date: January 12, 2011 10:56 am Title: Chapter 1
This was wonderful. Poor Malcolm. All of the emotions rang so true. Who of us has not been in that situation and just knew the person would come back to them...not.
I love this line. “I hate my life sometimes. Is it so much to want someone to hold? To want someone to hold me?”
You captured the just dumped turmoil one goes through perfectly.
Plus the Jon and Trip bit was a stitch.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I think based on the equisite angst in Malcolm's voice during Shuttlepod One that a deep love is something he really wants but he doesn't want to be hurt again either. He's definitely reeling from being dumped.

This was a lot of fun. You not only captured the essence of Malcolm, but you used the song brilliantly to do so! Great job! You really made me feel for him.
Thanks for the review and the beta. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I just figured there must be a story behind why Mal keeps his heart so well protected and this story tells it. Like I'd said the "I hate my life" sort of pointed me toward Mal.

This is a fantastic one shot. You capture Malcolm so perfectly, and I loved seeing a little cameo of our favorite engineer and captain. When I read the line: "He figured the two must be good friends. Malcolm envied them that type of easiness." I was wanting to tell Malcolm to be patient, that he'd get that kind of friendship too! :)
Excellent work! I added this to my favorites.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed it enough to make it a favorite.
I'm going to have to thank volley for my Malcolm bullseye. I've been working on reading her stories over the last few weeks and since she's very Malcolm centric (and very well to boot), I feel I'm getting a good picture into our favorite Brit's mind.
As to the cameo...they just walked in and sat down for a beer and I couldn't ignore them... ;^)
