I'm much amused by the idea of a very small SF soldier with spare kit lying around. I'd never noticed that before.

Some nice little details here that I'd not really picked up on before. The A/C interaction is particularly interesting.

But the parallel with Stephen does show a tendency to blow hot and cold, which reminds me of teh way she distanced herself from Connor at the end of the mer-creatures episode.

I did wonder exactly where they had got all the spare kit for Cutter, Stephen and Abby, but Abby in particular you wouldn't think they'd have stuff just lying around for someone her size and build.

There's defintely a recurring theme of Abby appearing to change her mind once she's had time to think about things. The other good example is when she kisses Connor at the end of 3.8, but then at the start of 3.9 they have that horribly awkward conversation in which Abby seems to be trying to completely ignore what happened.

It's as if she lets her instincts and her heart control in the heat of the moment, but then when she has time to go away and think, she gets scared (of comittment? Of being hurt?) and backs off again.

Scared of committment and being hurt is how I've always read it. It'll be interesting to see if there are more instances of this than we've remembered. That's whay the detailed analyses like this are so useful.

I vaguely fancy doing one for Ryan sometime. I missed the boat for that in teh last fest.

I can't immediately think of any other obvious instances at the moment, apart from possibly the way she seemed to be thinking about making a move on Connor in 3.2, but then it all went off the boil after Cutter died. It's possible that the shock of that reminded her how easy it is to lose people in this job, so she backs off again rather than become too close to someone else who she might lose.

I'm definitely intending to do a Connor meta, probably in the same way as I've approached this one. The scary thing is, that's probably going to be even longer!

You'll probably need to start teh Connor one just after finishing this!!
