*blows out deep held breath*
Yes. Very haunting. I'm glad I did read "One Minute" before this...it makes so much sense, and adds so much more depth to that story. That one stands well alone, but it's still very cool and beautiful to see just what Scotty was thinking during those years with Andy.
Kinda disturbing, how at the start of their relationship Scott was still constantly on guard; the way you portray him always monitoring Andy as a threat, I'm just waiting for him to suddenly see that threat and finish Andy with the brutality he showed in ESPG. But then the transformation from "guarding against a threat" to where they stand, embracing, at the end of One Minute is...incredibly beautiful. And given the end of this one, with him waking from the dream...I can agree, that was certainly more of a threat than anything else that happened in the two stories, because not only had Andy gotten close to Scott, but Scott had let him get close, both physically and emotionally. Everything about this Scott hinged on his ability to remain detached from everything around him so that he could finish his job. To have someone be able to break into that seclusion and find the good in him, and to reignite that spark of the man he had once been...
Those last words just break my heart, knowing what happened to get to that point. Another very beautiful piece in this saga.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad you read One Minute. A lot of people seem to sort of miss this side arc, and even though you can read ESPG without it, I think it's so much the better with it. I'm honored you've read it.
