A baby and a wedding -- doesn't get much more feel-good than that! I love the alien ceremony, and the fact that it's different in details to a human one but similar in all the important ways. Very nicely done!

Author's Response:

Thank you (plus they're building a restaurant. They are busy, busy folk!). I appreciate it.

What a lovely, sweet fic! The place descriptions are wonderful. How like parents to require a 'proper' wedding; and the end made me chuckle.

Well done!

Author's Response: thank you most kindly. I guess whatever the century, parents are just the same.

Very cute! The descriptions of the space station are fantastic; a lot of nice sensory details. Crink's desperation to get rid of the tribbles is very funny, and I love that the Klingon went back to take care of them.

Author's Response: Thanks Aurora! I'm glad you like the description of the station, I was trying to give it a busy but jovial atmosphere. Thanks for your review

Beautiful fic! I love the flow of this from the past to the present and the very loving father-daughter relationship. The dialogue was all so natural and your prose in general was just fantastic. Very nice!

I loved how the the theme of sacrifice was woven throughout the different plot threads of this. The dreams were incredible, as others have said, and the ending was just lovely.

Author's Response:

Thank you very much! Lili is very much defined by her subconscious. I love to get into her head and write her dreams.

Nice look at a command gone wrong in the Dominion. It makes sense to me that the Dominion wouldn't want to just mindlessly slaughter its potential subjects. I also really loved the range of Vorta personalities in this, particularly Nalla.

Author's Response: Thanks! One of my complaints with DS9, which is still my favorite of the franchise, is how they only had two recurring Vorta: Weyoun and Keevan (on a technicality). It would have been great if they were able to bring back Eris; I'm helping compensate for that by featuring her extensively in my work.
