DAMN, this story was amazing! Holy cow. There is nothing I can say that can convey how much I loved this.
I was starting to think John was ascended but the end - Wow! I am totally favoring this and will definitely read it again. It's sad but written so well! Thank you so much for not only writing this, but for sharing it for others to enjoy as well.
... Its more than a little sad. I'm starting to cry. Seriously.
Amazing. Simply an amazing story.

Oy. I just...oy. John reminds me of A Rose for Emily, killing her love so he'd never be able to leave. And like in A Rose for Emily, I did not see the creepy coming. I mean, yeah, I figured out John was a ghost when they got to the wreck, but I didn't realize he was a benevolently *evil* ghost (I say "benevolently evil" because while I'm sure he thought he had good intentions, his execution (oh, god, no pun intended) left much to be desired). Well done.

I think it would be interesting to get Rodney's afterlife reaction, if he even becomes a ghost (he seems stubborn--and freaked out--enough to fully pass on just to spite John), and the reactions of Steve and the rest of town to Rodney's death. That said, I also think that you've left the story in just the right place. It would be a shame to sully such a chilling ending with a sequel; it'd be like making a Sixth Sense Two. Granted, I'm sure that if you felt it necessary to address the "what happens next?" and "what do the others think?" issues, you would find a way to gracefully write such an addendum. You have, after all, shown yourself to be quite a talented author.

That's horrible. Absolutely nasty.
Oh. My. God. I've read both this and the original tonight and I think this one will stick the longest. Nasty but oh so wonderful. Orange juice. Wow. Just wow.
I'm printing it out.
You are truly amazing.

wow that was amazing. I knew you'd written the description as a horror story, but I was scoffing at that throughout the story and even towards the end. But whoah! you got me no fluff here. Awesome and damn that evil(lonely) john creepy!

Oh my god. This is so sweet and so creepy. And it fits them strangely enough.
One thing is certain, I am not going to be able to sleep tonight.

Is it just me? Or does it seem like Rodney *won't* become a ghost?

I mean, talk about the ultimate horror. John finally finds someone that hears him, that he can connect with. And as he tries to bring him to be with John forever... he in fact destroys any chance at it.

But that's just the evil wench in me. ;)

If you had put up the appropriate warnings for this piece (character death, etc...), I wouldn't have read it.

I'm glad you didn't, though, because that would have been a tragedy. I loved this story, from start to finish. Your take on the characters was very well done, their interaction specifically was spot on. You managed to make your tale both intriguing and spooky. And your Shepperd!!! As horrified as I was by his action, a part of me understood his twisted rational. As dearly as I love your Black Helicopters series (which is quite a bit!), I think I may actually love this more. I'm glad you decided to share this with us.

I would kill (metaphysically speaking, of course) to see a sequel with Rodney's reaction. Thank you for sharing your talent and keep up the brilliant work!

That was amazing!
A wonderful ride and I really love how Rodney *knows* something is up, but keeps denying his instincts to bull headedly persue John. As he feeds more mental energy and strife into the radio, he empowers the ghost of John.
As John interacts and gets more energy spent on him, he becomes more and more corporeal, he had been in danger of finally passing on, and Rodney, so full of fire and energy... is like everything he needs as a ghost, and wanted as a man.

Talk about temptations. John may have been a great guy, but 20 years alone after a violent lingering death? Not going to make a sane ghosty.

I am also left wondering if Steve already knew the danger Rodney was in, and was trying his damndest to save him, while trying to avoid getting killed as well.
Just me over thinking.

Also, Gundam Legends grew into a multi-fandom horror fest??? OMG! I so need to find the fest page then! Cause this reminded me of the very best fics I loved years ago from the Halloween fests.

OMFG! I'm really glad you went with Black Helicopters, because this freaked me the hell out. I saw the ghost thing coming, but not that he'd be so fricking malignant!

I am so glad you revised and created the Black Helicopter series because it is wonderful.

Thank you so much for posting this also. It is deliciously creepy. And that is so not the way to start a relationship!

That is just plain creepy, but so good!

I love the ending line. And I'm such a glutton for punishment that I keep trying to figure out what happens next. I like it just as much as I like the first posted idea on this series.

Thanks for sharing!
