That was amazing. The best bits were how you used key events (the death of her father, stuck in a cellar with Damar and Garak) to examine times when she had a crisis of faith.
You write the Kira Nerys character really well, and each scene is really cleverly writen and well-thought out. You've given me some ideas about how to write Kira Nerys. So thanks!
Author's Response: A belated response, but thank you so much for this! I'm really glad you enjoyed the story - Kira Nerys is one of my all-time favourite characters to write.

Wow. I didn't even catch all of the levels of foreshadowing and connections between these visions on my first read-through. Kira definitely seems to "foresee" that she will see something else just as bad--but at this point I don't think she could ever imagine it would be on Cardassia Prime.
One thing that amazes me...the possibility that Kira could even imagine not just being called but BEING a murderer at that point. But I guess something had to be underneath even then, that bubbled up to the surface on that Gamma Quadrant moon.
This particular passage I also can't help seeing through my own characters' eyes--the horror and the helpless rage and shame at what happened.
Author's Response: First off, I think you were the one who mentioned that the first version of this I posted cut off mid-sentence? If so, thank you so much for pointing that out! The entire fic had been uploaded as one chapter, which was reading fine in preview mode, but caused some issues with the system when I actually uploaded it. It's been a while since I posted to this site - I think I'm still trying to learn how the whole thing went. (Including line breaks in reviews, apparently - bear with me!)
I'm so glad that the foreshadowing came through all right. I've recently started a rewatch of the show from the beginning, and I'm always surprised at how much can be read as "foreshadowing" for later events, with the right eyes (though I doubt much of it was intentional on the writers' parts), and that was the feeling I wanted to capture here.
Thank you again for the review! I really appreciate your thoughts. :)
