I repeat dizzying. Terrific sci-fi, fantasy, philisophical high concept thinking going on here if one could claim to understand it. Great job writing it and making it so a person can follow it. Janeway's 'growth' in power/abilities seems like it could indeed come with a price and I'm not sure if Q and Lady Q and Quesling are colluding are working to different ends. Either way Janeway is going to be used and in the crossfire and may potentially grow from it and may potentially suffer from it all. So many amazing facets to this - from the disgruntled Q with his rather coarse and frank assessmnets of Janeway as dead meat and talking of sheep fucking, to Amanda's saving Janeway's 'life' to the story of Kes and her son, to Janeway discovering more about her salamander children and their nature and the university there's just so much packed into this story. The mind boggles nevermind trying to decipher the motivations of different individuals. Also, big kudos for elevating the turning into lizards at warp 10 episode into something with far more ramification that doesn't just need to be forgotten about. Terrificv stuff. Truly impressive stuff.

I am in shock and in awe of the scope of this story and even it is somewhat contained by the exploration of Janeway's other lives. But the depth and the emotional journey [and I hate that expression! but it is very fitting here - although sadly lacking in encompassing everything that Janeway is experiencing in the Continuum] you explore and convey here so terrifically despite the fundamental difficulties in trying to relate a higher palin of existence. Nevermind the beings who inhabit it and are erternal perhaps. That takes some skilful writing and you take it to dizzying heights. Seriously, totally impressed by how you can think this up and then convey it so brilliantly to the reader. I don't tend to give stars as part of a review as they tend to be subjective and the rest but truly the concept and the writing itself blow me away. So a full ten stars from me.

Wow mindblowing. Truly the whole concept of this. I love the way you keep this all so novel and ground breaking even though you write other stories in the Q universe. Very skilful and so in touch with the character of Janeway.Bravo.
