Such a great concept! The scene where Jacob subtly manipulates Frank towards his destiny was especially interesting and very Lost-ish.

Thanks! Yeah, I think it's very possible that Jacob had a hand in Frank not flying 815. I loved the way he sort of helped the Losties along in "the Incident" flashbacks, and I thought it would be cool to see that with the freighties. :)

This is incredible! I loved every single one. Jacob was so... Jacob. I loved all his thought processes, like how the mothrs always freak out, and the way he's so good at acting everyday and normal, like with Frank in the bar, and then the one with Charlotte reminded me of Hurley's visit where Jacob was so direct. I lvoe this more than I can say. Thank you so much! Jacob is wonderful, and so are my darling Freighties.

Awww, thank you so much! *blush*

Jacob was so... Jacob.
I'm glad you think so, because I was a little nervous about writing him. I wanted to get it just right. I wanted each visit to be a little different, like the ones we saw in the finale. I was actually thinking of Hurley's visit when I wrote Charlotte's here. I thought it would be neat if he was straight foward with her.

Thank you again! I'm so glad that you like it! ♥

Oh my gosh, I love this so much in concept and even more in execution. I always figured the freighties weren't chosen by accident (I mean, beyond the reasons Widmore wanted them on the island) and I love that you explore this here, and that Jacob has a hand in it.

And this especially -- he feels no regret for the sacrifices that have to be made, but at times, like now, knowing the end of the story before it ever begins is a burden -- and how, in particular for Charlotte and Dan (and by connection, Theresa), it won't be a happy ending. Great job!

Thank you!! The freighties need more exploration. I know we got flashbacks for Dan and Miles in S5 but there is still so much that their episodes didn't answer. And we have little backstory for Charlotte and Frank. Of course, it pretty much goes without saying Jacob is involved in all their lives. I mean, he has to be. :P

Sigh, yes. Poor doomed Daniel. :(

Thank you again! ♥ ♥

Oh this is fantastic! All of the scenes feel like they could easily be a part of canon. Daniel bumping into Theresa gave me chills and then Jacob delaying Frank at the bar...just amazing. Incredible work!

Thank you!! Daniel and Frank's parts are actually what held me up in posting this. I finished Miles and Charlotte a few days ago, but I couldn't get Dan and Frank just the way I wanted them until last night. So, I'm very happy that you like it! :D

I love the concept of this, think Frank was probably my favourite - never thought of Jacob having had a hand in Frank not flying 815 but it works! Liked that reference to the Red Sox.

I wish we'd seen something like this - I'm convinced Jacob visited everyone at some point. I'd like to know how he visited Claire, Desmond, Walt and Juliet (I already wrote one for all the rest that weren't seen in canon except those four).

Thank you! I hope they will explain why Frank didn't fly 815. After the flashbacks in the finale, it seems really likely that Jacob might have had something to do with it. :)

Oh, I know. I'd love to see Jacob visiting everyone because I'm convinced that he has. Especially Juliet, I'd like to know how much she knew about him some of the other island mysteries (*cough*Richard*cough*)...
