This has to be the 5th time I've read all the Whitman 'Verse in one sitting since I discovered it, I only just realised, to my shame, that I had not yet commented. First thing to say is something I'm sure you've heard time and time again, wow!

Your characterisations are amazingly realistic and the writing brings the world to life. The way you show Charlie's genius and the twists in his brain are particularly impressive - something that unique and out of the realms of most people's personal experience is hard to write with sympathy, particularly in a way that makes it understandable to your readers, you manage it with flair. Your OCs and peripheral characters are also well done - you give us an understanding of them and their stories succinctly yet effectively.

The development of your characters is also impressive - I like how you've shown, in particular, Charlie, Colby and Don's growth, changing emotions and the effect of their relationships and personal experiences, on the way they have changed throughout the series. A particular favourite for me is something you show with most clarity, and some very erotic writing, in Chapter 34 of 'A Woman Waits for Me', when Charlie is dominating the lap dancer. It would have been altogether too easy to keep seeing Charlie as a purely submissive masochist, totally enthralled in service to his beefy Fed partner, instead, you've managed to show the depths of his complexity, and I look forward to seeing more about his dominating side in part 5.

In terms of plot, I love how you allow events to unfurl slowly, as opposed to throwing in as much drama in as short a time as possible. The way in which you show the effects of the events on your characters is particularly interesting, as it gives us more insights in to what makes particular people tick. My favourite part of the plot, and something I am eagerly anticipating hearing more about, is the evolution of Charlie's work, in some ways, I feel you've actually shown that more realistically than the show does! I have a feeling that in part 5, he's going to be getting up to some very interesting stuff in conjunction with the government, and maybe the military.

Anyway, this is getting kind of long, so I'll just reiterate that I look forward to reading more of this in the future and that I think you've done a great job.

Well thank you very kindly. A lot of work has gone into Whitman over the last couple of years and it's nice to know that people are enjoying it and even re reading it.
I'm glad you enjoyed the plotting. I do try to make sure my stories flow and the characters have motivation for their actions. Part 5 is in the works but I must confess it is behind schedule. All the bunnies that got pushed aside for part 4 formed a cooperative and demanded attention. Still please keep reading and thank you for your lovely comment.
