Vince Beckett:


It was pretty good. It makes things interesting with Sam haivng to save his younger self.

RATING: 9.0


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Sporty:


A great episode, Helen. Having Sam have to interact with his young self, "Tag" was simply adorable. Molestation is a crime that knows no time periods, you did a very good job. I hope to see more from you in future "episodes".

RATING: 8.0


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Seeker:

Great story, Helen. You’ve crafted an outstanding story that held my attention from the first word to the last. At times, it was almost like being right there with Sam and his younger self and Tom. Well done, indeed.


RATING: 9.0


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Allie Cat:

A nicely written and well thought-out story. It's interesting to see what kind of persons Sam and Tom were when they were young. I got the biggest kick, though, that Al changed into his uniform all because of Thelma not liking his choice of clothing.

Well done, Helen. Looking forward to your future stories this season!


RATING: 8.5

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Xanadu:

This was a good story. It was interesting to see this type of story read. It was almost -- in a way -- watching Back To The Future with Marty almost vanishing before our eyes. Sam almost did. Nicely done.

RATING: 8.5

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Rater No. 6

What a great episode! It took me a bit to wrap my brain around it completely, but it's well written, and I enjoyed every line.

Tag sounds absolutely adorable, of course, it couldn't be any other way

One story that I had actually read early since I was involved at beta stage, but I waited to reread from the published version before commenting.

Personally, I adore glimpses of pre-leaping Sam, and even moreso when it is 'ickle' Sam as my son would have said.

I also like it when VS stories link in to lines from the actual series, such as this does with the train journey described by Sam in Honeymoon Express.
It is fun to write 'back-stories' like this - I've done a couple myself - and fun to read them too.

So I may be biased, but I enjoyed this one!
