Brodder/gaffen23, first I do want to say thank you for the fan fiction. Enjoyed it quite a bit, however there are a couple of things that I wanted to mention here.
First, the core of the characters felt a little off from the main series, but I chalked that up to being different writers (just wanted to get it out of the way).
Second, Anastasia feels like a completely different character here. In the main series she is specifically stated to consider herself monogamous with Mike on several occasions, so I find it unlikely that she would just start a casual fling with Agent Hughes. I also think that Katrina would not be quite as ok with this going on around her, nor with letting him later catch a view of her bare chest as, essentially, a prank. Other than that Katrina is fine. I am also not real sure why Anastasia is suddenly shown turned on by or stimulated by everything around her to a fairly extreme degree.
Third, I did not like the direct inclusion of the Viking mythos into the story. I know that Ringo has hinted around this in the past, but it felt out of place in the series as a whole for the Norns and a God to suddenly be having a conversation with Mike. The Visions were a little jarring as well, the first was fine but the rest of them took it a little far, to me. In the main series it is only hinted out, not as overt as here.


Other than that, again minor things, different authors so different strokes. Over all great read, kept me at the edge of my seat fairly well, and I loved the ending. Hope you do more. Thanks.
