Can't believe I never reviewed this here...as this was my request! Thank you! You made this idea so much better with the clone aspect! I love that you found a way to save Mark...and this story was fascinating! This story was way above and beyond my hopes/ expectations! Congratulations on weaving another intriguing fic!
Author's Response: I could never haave written this without a way to save Mark... *grin*

Magnificent. You've spun off many lovely dark twisty threads to weave more stories, if you're so inclined...and we're right there to read them!
Author's Response: This actually became much more than I had intended when I wrote it. Certainly there are some ideas here that could use some expansion!

I too, loved this over at Gatchamania. It reads like a great Sci-Fi story, full of "dark doings" and lots of emotion. Oh the angst!
I liked that they wanted to honor Mark and loved the imagery that surrounds it, but the idea of having that statue in the atrium still does creep me out. :P
Author's Response: Better than having him standing beside Zoltar's throne! ;-)

Oh my goodness! This is so unexpectedly dark! I love it!
If you think about it, they were pretty much experimenting on oprhans. And they grew Keyop in a lab. So this really isn't such a stretch... I think it's fantastic that you've explored this to its logical conclusion.
So excited for the next chapter! :D
Author's Response: Well I was trying to build up angst and emotional stress, hence creating an environment where Jason and Princess would naturally be drawn to each other for support. But yes, given that Keyop was grown in a lab, I didn't feel it was a stretch to have clones made of all of them.

What if Keyop in the alcove is the original sparrow??
What if Original Mark is still concious??
What if ISO scientists find the way to recover him into flesh??
When above three questions came up to my mind, it was really piquant and thrilling!! Thank you. I really enjoyed the every work of this fic. Since I barely wrote reviews on your works, but I'm your big fan. :)
But I suggest that romance scenes need to be more specific. I mean, the last part of chapter 12. Hm Hm!! Maybe that's why the half of the fifth star is missing. *evil grin*
PS 1) google "How to Build a Beating Heart"- National Geographic documentary. It may give you a good source of idea.
PS 2) Am I the only one who was attracted to Zoltar in this fic?? So CUTE!! Don't know why. haha.
LOL, all good questions! This fic raised some other interesting questions on Gatchamania regarding cloning and the consequences, and what if other clones can be built and activated... does that mean that G-Force becomes disposable? It was a can of worms I hadn't anticipated when I started this fic. The reuqest was for Mark/Jason/Princess angst, with romantic overtones, when one fo them is turned to stone. I brught in the clone thing as a way to bring Princess and Jason closer, and (more importantly) a way to bring mark back. Given that this was written for the gift exchange, I thought it was long enough, and didn't devle into the clone implications as much as I could have. If you would like to explore such thoughts, yo uare certainly welcome to do so!
As for the 'more romantic' stuff, I've written plenty of that kind of thing, if that's what you want to see. You'd have to check out my M rated focs for that, or perhaps my 'Just Had To Get This Out' thread in the Gatchamania Rubber Room. ;-)

TJ, I loved this over at Gathcmania. It was a horrifying thing to comtemplate, being turned to stone. It was even more so with the addition of the clones and the implications they represented.
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it! The original fic request wanted to focus on angst and romance between the three main characters, but I brought in the idea of the clones to ensure Marks return... i just couldn't leave him as 'dead'!
