Nice friendship story between Phlox and Jon...their characters definitely rang through. Yes, there's a price to pay for curiosity, and Phlox knows that all too well in his culture. It's good that he's able to help Jon with his guilt. Losing a crew member, well...sucks, but it'll happen.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enoyed the story. From the show, we know that Phlox is often in the messhall and we saw how situations like this would bother Jon. It just seemed natural that the two would meet somewhat randomly and have such a conversation. I say somewhat randomly because it was clear that Phlox would be there as an ear for his captain...especially knowing how Jon processes painful events (classic stuffer) so maybe he hung out there wondering if Jon would show up.

I wish we'd seen more scenes like this with Phlox during the show. Your story is really true to those occasions when we did see Phlox as a confidant or counselor. I like how you fleshed out Denoblian culture a little more, too.
Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. One of the things I most like about fanfic is that any spaces not filled in in the official story is fair game and (if not an AU or OC story) one should remain true to what was presented (although occasionally with a personal observation slant as is done with 'ship' stories.) I too noticed that Archer and Phlox had developed this type of relationship in the show and thus, the vinette.

Great title! I always enjoyed the friendship between Phlox and Archer (as I do like your writing) and this was a nice conversation between them.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story and my writing. Fanfic has become a hobby I greatly love to do. It was shown several times in the series that Archer had taken counsel from Phlox (official or not). That such a convo would take place about this situation seemed totally reasonable.

This is such a quiet moment between these two. The conversation really rings true, and it's just lovely and sad.
Thanks for the review and the beta as well. I really like the friendship that developed between Archer and Phlox. I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
