I really enjoyed this Maddy and the ending where they are snuggled up together. You do a good job looking into the characters emotions.
Author's Response: When it comes right down to it, I'm a hopeless romantic and will do just about anything to get the Eagle and Swan together.. I also love looking at an episode or incident from the emotional side of it - something that we only see from outside, but which is much more fun from the first person POV. Damn hard to write though.

Another great fic of yours Maddy! So full of emotions, character descriptions and explanations! I love your ending ... it's surely far more better than that of the Gatchaman universe and the way Ken treated Jun when they had found her ... even if he may have had his good reasons! Thanks for a wonderful read!
Author's Response: From what I know - the two stories in BotP and Gatch have completely different emotional centres. BotP is all about the Mark/Princess love and Gatchaman is all about duty - even though in both Eagle is angsting. But then Angst can be said to be almost a default state for Ken.

Wonderful rewrite, Maddy! It digs into the characters and the emotion. Great job.
Author's Response: Thanks Amethyst. I was hoping to really capture the emotion behind this - I suppose that's why I left so much out when I did the re-write.

You know, Maddy - too many of my reviews of your fics start with 'Oooohhhhh'. So I found a way to put it at the end of the first sentence! This is a wonderful exploration of the hidden feelings behind these two episodes... It was always suggested in BotP that Mark's reactions to setting the field alight was more about his love for Princess than his despair at the lost of a team mate, and you have captured that beautifully!
Author's Response: Oh yes - even when I was 13 I saw that it was all about Mark's feelings for Princess rather than any sense of duty or team. I'm glad you enjoyed this.
