Wow, wow, wow and wow. First thanks to kes for pointing this overlooked story of yours out. I can't believe I never commented or read it before. And boys oh boys. That was an intense and gripping read from start to finish. The different scenes all making up a catastrophic overview of the tragedy. It really made things hit home much more so than the event depicted on Enterprise ever did. Very visereal with the depiction of the firestorms raging, the winds kicked up and the flooding. Really a dire pciture depicted with brave, brave cadets thrown into the mix. With the little girl's name implying that Seth may have saved more tha just the little girl's life but a future person too. That said, you end it wiht him throwing himself out into the dark again. You owuldn't be thinking to make Seth a lionised hero, what with giving away his St. Christopher medal and everything? You wouldn't do that?! Awesome.

Wow. Powerful and painful, it's definitely a worst-case scenario. You handled this extremely well; I felt for every character (including the villain, oddly enough, though not really sympathy), and the eeriness of sirens, and the howling of a world caught on fire. Just excellent work.

Yet another gripping chapter! I'm glad you got this finished in time for the challenge. I couldn't help but to think of parallels to Katrina with the flashes to the evacuation scene, how those with the fewest resources are always left behind to fend for themselves. Very powerful stuff.
