E!Mail (Sentinel)

I liked this short piece. It's the SenToo fountain scene from another perspective. What's more, it wasn't just that, it was a personal story as well, that was interesting in itself. And it was nice to have a little cameo-ish connection with Emergency.

This was a nice story. More of a Highlander story than a Sentinel one, but in character all around. It was interesting to see a story set so early in both the shows' timeline. I also liked the bit where Jim found out Duncan was immortal.

This story was nominated in the Cascade Times Awards 2000 for "best bad girl original character" (OFC) for the character of Dr. Stacey Murray, but I hadn't read it when all the voting was going on. I should've. Stacey Murray wasn't really a villain, that's the interesting thing about it. She ends up doing bad things, because she's driven, but not because she's psycho. This was a good story. Jim and Blair are themselves, have their differences, look out for each other, care for each other, and do stupid things. We definitely had a good guest-character in Stacey. The epilogue makes you go (sniff).

That was good. As the author said, it was ironic, in view of what was going to happen in the future - almost enough for me to consider it AU, because it's hard to believe that they could have gone through what they did here and fail to learn a lesson from it which would have then affected how they reacted in Sentinel Too. But that's okay. I like the way all the pieces of the puzzle came together, bit by bit.

Addendum: nominated for favourite horror/scary story in the 2001 Cascade Times Awards.
