Review of chapter "Conversation in the Clouds" from Duchess
*giggle* Cute! I lost track of DS9 when I moved and couldn't pick up the station it was on anymore, so I had no idea they'd ended it like that. How sucky! Thanks for fixing it. *vbg*
Comments from author:
Thanks so much! I only managed to catch DS9 sporadically during the final season. Then I saw the finale, and was a bit unhappy with the way they ended. I think someone on the writing staff must have some separation issues. Ben and Kasidy finally get together, then he has to go for an indefinite commune with the Prophets. Odo and Kira kind of admit their feelings for each other, then he goes off to commune with the other changelings in a huge puddle of goo on a planet in the gamma quadrant. At least Ezri and Julian wound up together. Wait, depending on when you stopped watching, you might have no idea who Ezri is. When Michael Dorn joined the show, Worf and Jadzia Dax hooked up - big Klingon wedding. Then Terry Farrell decided to leave, so they killed off Jadzia, and Ezri became the new host for Dax. She and Julian picked up where Jadzia and Julian never really left off.

Whew! I don't know how caught up you were, but I guess it doesn't hurt to fill in the details. Anyway, thanks again for the feedback. It's always a wonderful surprise to get a review on a story that's been posted for a long time.

Review of chapter "Conversation in the Clouds" from Odjn
The notion of a non-linear existence, such as the Celestial Temple, precludes the idea of time passing in the outside world. He could spend billions of years there, and still come back yesterday.
Comments from author:
I'm not sure which "he" you're referring to, Connor or Sisko. Irregardless, my answer is the same. Just because time CAN stand still (or even go backward) in the Celestial Temple, it doesn't mean that it HAS to remain static. If someone went into the Temple and could come out yesterday, then he could also come out six months from now.

I think there's at least a little evidence that Sisko expected time to pass in the outside world while he was away gettin' his Emissary on. It's been a long while since I saw the DS9 finale, but I think I remember some emotional goodbyes. He didn't seem to know when or if he'd be back. It's possible that he could have gone to the Temple and gotten enlightened on a coffee break, but that didn't happen. The series ended with Sisko gone, Kira in charge, and Jake and Kasidy minus a loved one - with no hint that that situation would change any time soon. I never liked that ending, so I chose to wield my omnipotence as a fanfic writer to reunite him with his family.

Review of chapter "Conversation in the Clouds" from Cutiepie
Yeah, it wasn't written for me, but I found it entertaining nonetheless. Thank you for writing it, and especially for including my favorite character, Faith. Another coma? She'll never hear the end of it! =]
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm sorry it took me a while to respond. My computer has been exceedingly cranky. The person who requested the fic asked for some humor, and I didn't think that a conversation between Connor an Sisko would be full of laughs. So, I came up with the idea of adding Faith. A coma seemed like a reasonable way to get her there. It made me laugh, so I hoped others would find it funny. Thanks so much for the review.
