I've forgotten when this story fits into your timeline.  Sad
Which story comes after this one?  Huh

Denise, this one is placed about ten months after "Best Friends" and it will be followed by "Absence", which deals mostly with Ed and his side of the equation. "Soul Mates" follows "Absence". I took Louise's advice and numbered the stories on my website and on FanFiction. I know they are going to change, but it's not a big deal to renumber them. Smiley

My muse likes to jump all over the place! Cheesy

Louise, one of the things I admired about Ed was his dedication to his principles. He wouldn't tolerate a glass ceiling attitude from anyone. Wink Judging a person by their gender was another thing I never understood. Undecided

Ed doesn't really come to terms with his feelings for Ginny until the next story! Wink

Ginny will discover just how incomaptible she is with Paul later in the story, as well as realizing the reason she is bothering with him.

Paul does get his, but not in a mean way. This is a turning point for him, one of several that will take him to the place of maturity where he ended up in "Expecting". His attitude changes over the next two years. Wink

“I’m not a prude, but I’m not promiscuous either. I have to be in love with someone before I’ll go to that point. There has to be a promise of a future together. Paul, I’m not a twenty something girl fresh out of school. I’m thirty seven years old. I don’t have the luxury of wasting time on a relationship that isn’t going anywhere. Someday I want a marriage, and I want children, and if that scares you then you should say so now.”

This is a really good bit of conversation Matt.. a deep look at her reasons and hopes. the way her mind works, what she wants.... Ginny as a woman, not just as a sex object/scientist/SHADO colonel. (not necessarily in that order!)
the whole conversation is good, but this part is excellent!

  Very well written and totally believable. and also (dare I say it!) makes me think much more highly of Ginny! Shocked

Thanks Louise, I'm glad that worked. You see at this point in time Paul is not considering the depth in any relationship he pursues. Ginny on the other hand knows who she is and what she wants. I do see her being honest about her feelings. Wink

Paul doesn't see it yet, but Ginny has taught him something here. Smiley

Matt,
Why would he consider something so far outside his realm of experience?  Depth?  What does Paul know about depth?  He just wants to get laid!   Cheesy

My point exactly! Wink But he will learn, you see in order to become the Paul Foster I portray in "Expecting" he has to start somewhere and I see this as a gradual process. Smiley

Paul will remember this conversation further down the road. Cheesy

Its a nice split between Paul and Ginny. He wants sex, no commitment, no strings, no ties. She however is beginning to yearn for those things that she has been denied; love, romance, children, and the clock is ticking......... Embarrassed
Paul is really showing his immaturity.

Thank heavens we all hate Paul. Wouldn't it be dreadful if one of us thought he was sex on legs! (not you Matt! Grin Denise or me!)  But there again , I suppose  you could think he was a really sensible, mature member of SHADO.... not!

I wouldn't say I hate Paul, I think I'm just showing him as he was in the series. I did see some growth in him towards the end and my stories reflect that. Smiley

He grows up quick once I marry him off, I haven't decided when that is going to take place, either in "Genetics" or "Dark SHADO".

But he is so much fun to pick on especially early on in the series. Cheesy

Paul as sex on legs? That's too funny. Although Yuchtar likes him doesn't she? Wink

Yeah, it's time for a little fun, this one is going better than it was earlier. I just didn't get much time to write this weekend. Angry Hate it when that happens. Grin

Today is going to be busy so I won't get back to this until later. grrr But later this afternoon I should have some time. Smiley

I'm still thinking about "Glitch" and I may have to bring "Matt" back to play some more. Not sure yet, as I have a couple of idea floating around. Fun stories pull together a lot quicker! Cheesy

This is shaping up very nicely, Matt!  Smiley
You're doing well with the whole relationship thing as well.  Very fine line between what the show showed and what you're implying.  But you're walking the tightrope as if you knew what you were doing!  Wink  Ha ha!  Grin
Keep up the good work!  It's a great story!  Cool

That's the hard part, and I'm glad I waited until now to tackle this story. I really didn't know if I was going to be able to pull this off or not. Wink

There is an old saying, "If you can't dazzle 'em with brillance, baffle 'em with bulls**t. Cheesy

I finished the Craig/Ginny scene and added it.

Onward to more good stuff! Smiley

This is coming together really well. I like the way you are true to the story, but add your own little touches.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this all ends.... will it be with Craig dying? and how Ginny  deals with that?
