A neat paradox, intriguing! And a very in-character piece for Odo, one can practically hear his voice. Well done!

Author's Response:

Thank you, Anna.

The story was a bit of a departure for me, in a number of ways. I recently criticized someone elseís story for having what I thought was excessive dialog without proper attribution. I thought it was confusing. With this story I find myself eating my own un-attributed words, as I found the spare dialog necessary for creating Odoís voice. Iím not sure why it works, it just does.

An adventure, this writing is.

That... is one heady paradox. I had to read it a few times to make real sense of it -- good work!

Author's Response:

Steff, thank you - that makes my day!

The story could use another revision or two as it doesn't quite zip up as nicely as I think it could. So, someday, you may find this little orphan in your inbox, crying for a little of your help... ;~)

Wow...That makes my brain look at paradoxical circles in whole new fashions.

Author's Response:

Yeah, it's not very often where we can use a phrase like 'You gave birth to me, but I am your Father' and it actually makes sense.

Thank you for your comment, it is much appreciated!

- Sam.

This was an interesting interpretation of the challenge :D And you completely threw me with the Dr Mora aspect.

Thanks for an enjoyable read.

Author's Response:

I'm pleased that you enjoyed it Nutty, and thank you for the kind feedback.

When I first read your challenge I have to admit I was scratching my head. Now that I've written the story I'm seeing 'Not an Island' story ideas popping up everywhere. 'Children of Time' is positively rife with them, and I suggest it as a starting point for other authors.

Perhaps that's the mark of a good challenge, Nutty; providing a subtle adjustment so that our eyes can see old things in a new light.
