I liked the story until you began focusing on other characters backrounds and lives all the time. Just stick with jack and Kyle like the summary says. I hate it when writers go off track and begin writing about other characters. I mean yea, the once in a while peak of what the other characters are going through but not to an extent where the focus of the story's seems to be on them.

Hi! This is a fantastic tale, and I'm impressed by your compelling storyline, the depth of the characters, your attention to detail and your prose. I've read many online stories and this ranks up there with the best of them. Even though it's been ages since your last update, I strongly encourage you to consider finishing it. I also hope things are better in your life now. Peace.

Hi, I hope you feel a lot better now after Christmas, new year and valentine in the corner. It might not looked it but taking a break and looking around us and pay more attention to those around us helped a lot for me.
reconnecting with people we know or knowing new people..well, i'd rather speaking with my pet fish and flowers. It sounds insane but helping too, and they grow healthier too. So yeah, i hope you'll get well soon.
here, a cookie made of warm feeling for you.

It might sound nasty for my first review but in the earlier chapter, you mentioned Kyle and Kat peeling a lot of potato, chopped them and put them in closed container for quick use. So it seemed strange that Kyle peel the potatoes again, a mountain of them. Perhaps you could add the sentence like 'even though they already have a lot, it still not enough to last them until the next port' or something, perhaps the new potato batch that Kat bought when they docked in st. Peter.
i love the story, the transition quite smoith even if the other crew's past seemed forced. As with Nick or Cowboy, i imagine he lost eloquent after speaking so few. Thinking words and saying them require different effort. So, yeah. Thanks again.

I just rediscovered this story, one of my old favorites, and I certainly remember why! It's so beautifully written, such an interesting and engaging story, and with characters you root for and want to see find happiness. Obviously it's been quite some time since it's been updated and I imagine you've long stopped working on it, but I just wanted to let you know that if you ever feel like revisiting it, I (and I suspect a lot of other people) would love to read more. I hope all is going well for you!

I really like this story :) Hope everything is going along OK. There's just a few spelling errors in some of the chapters that I've noticed (having 'she' instead of 'he') but other then that it is 100% perfect :D

This is a very accomplished story. Stylistically I'm impressed at the degree to which you've cut down on the internal monologue that seems to pad every story here on FP. You are very capable of wringing the emotional intensity from the situations you set up, but I'd enjoy seeing more catharsis, although you may have most of that planned for the end.
I find that since the last incident with Stephen, the characters seem to be more like soap-operatic caricatures of themselves, although not intolerably. It seems that the world has dropped away, and all that exists is their own larger-than-life emotions. I think I'm noticing a tendency back towards a more coherent situation, though. And don't misunderstand me: you've kept the characters compelling and believable throughout.
Overall, thank you for putting so much effort into this story. You have a sense of direction to your writing that serves you well, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the story and what you might write afterwards.

I love this story so far and I am very sad to read about your crisis. I hope you will continue this story. The characters are endearing and their motives are very plausible. And I am wondering what exactly happened to Jack on the Orpheus.
Hope you will find again motiviation to continue this story.

Hello! I just wanted to drop by and comment on how much I've enjoyed reading what you've posted so far! Each character is so well thought out and it's fun getting to know more about them each chapter. I also love the relationships between the different characters; they all have such great chemistry! I know there hasn't been an update recently and it's probably not on the top of your things to do, but I'm glad to hear that you haven't entirely given up on it (at the time you wrote that anyway ;) ). In any case, I look forward to any possible future updates (even if it's not for a long time)!

I definitely understand that you had to take a break
But don't forget to update its been 2 years! And I'm so in to this story that you just HAVE to update! and you promised not to give it up.
If you don't have any more ideas left for this story then we still have Cole to enter the scene again and maybe Kyle feels jealous and threatened because Jack is paying more attention (whether subconsciously or not) to Cole then of course in comes Stephen again! D this time Stephen strikes a deal with Kyle (Stephen doesn't want Jack to have anything happy in his life so why not take what makes Jack happy?)for Kyle to work on the Never Land and tries to woo Kyle with his awesomeness never shown before bahahahahahaha~
lol Srry i just think a Stephen/Kyle is sexy, I mean the cute innocent plus a sadistic but maybe secretly sweet man? and try and keep Stephens crew off Kyle this time :P
BUT this has been an UBER awesome story so far and your fan would really like for you to continue

Great story! :D

Lovely story I must say. Your characters are very well developed, they have all been given backgrounds that allow the reader to see just what kind of journey they are on and how much they have been able to overcome. Just love the mood that the crew is becoming more accustomed to, never mind that Stephen tried to mar this, one of happiness, due to all the hookups of course. Seriously though they are well deserving of this as all the histories we have been made privy to have been so tragic, there almost seems to be too much going on in their lives to keep up with. So I love the fact that you have taken time to create a clear picture for the reader to be transported to the Bering sea, sometimes however, I think a little too much information is being transmitted. Really love this very engaging story though and hopefully you will continue with this.

I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your story, you characters and plot are well developed, and I'm enjoying the setting immensely. My family has been invovled in the lobstering industry in Maine for generations, and while it is on a compeltely different scale and insesnity than crab fishing, it does give me some insight into how that might work, and the difficlties it involves, and I have to say you've done a wonderful job capturing that tension and stress that comes from working in a difficult environment where things can go wrong quickly.
I love the fact that there are no characters that get short changed in favor of others, that Kat is given her moment and her man just like Jack and Alex. I hate stories that have to make women out to be the enemy or some shallow caracture becuase the focus is on slash. I will take Alex's comment about kissing girls as a judgemtn on the women he's been with rather than women as a whole.
I'm sorry you've been going through a rough patch, and hope things begin to look up. My grandfather has been failing for the past year, and just passes away a couple of days ago, and I have to say that reading a story where fishermen are treated with such dignity and respect means a lot to me (my grandfather was a lobsterman who kept going until his heart problems wouldn't allow him to continue in his 85th year).
Thank you for sharing, and sorry this is so long, I hope that I was able to coney how much I enjoyed this, and how much it means to me.

Wow. I Love this story. I actually don't know what to say when it comes down to writing a review, it's that good.
Haha ok, don't be angry just yet, because I will tell you that this is simply amazing. It's one of those dark, sexy, plotty stories that you just can't put down. I had to drag myself away from my lap top to eat and sleep because I was just so sucked in.
I don't think this short, crappy review conveys truly how much I enjoyed reading this, so I'll try again if, and hopefully when, you update. I know real life is such a bitch sometimes but I really do hope that I'll be able to read another chapter of this soon. I was SO disappointed when I was all prepared to move onto chapter 26 but there was none :[. And just when Matt and Alex started their relationship! You have no idea how long I was waiting for that to happen.
Anyway, just wanted to say how much I love your piece of work here, it's really, very good. Amazing writing, amazing characters and the perfect villain, who I just love to hate. I hope you'll be able to update soon!
