Title: Where the Jungle Begins
Author: Verlaine
Artist: inlovewithboth

Summary: Before CI5, before the SAS, before the army . . .

There was Africa.

When I originally saw this story summary I grabbed at it and was so delighted to be given my first choice. I just knew this was a story I wanted, needed, to illustrate. I had great fun making the vid and really wanted to capture all the elements of a story that I totally loved. And on top of all that, I've made a new friend. I do adore the Big Bang experience!

You have no idea how happy I am to see this go up! I LOVED working on this, and I have been waiting to get a complete, downloadable version onto my Kindle since the BB began.

Will become a fandom classic, my dear.

A fantastic story!
Actually two fantastic stories. :-)
Your 'Bodie in Africa' is a very good plot, a very good possibility how it 'could have been', I think.
And what a perfect twist with the betrayal! And the killing of the 'beautiful girl'... Yeah that makes sense!
Woodruff and Bannister are great!

I only would have wished 'more' in the end. Maybe a meeting between Bodie and Woodruff and Bannister.
I could have read on and on for some more time! :-)

Thank you!

What a fantastic read this was, one which I thoroughly enjoyed and which kept my attention from start to finish. I particularly liked the story's structure - the way it moved back and forth from contemporary Ci5 to Africa and a much younger Bodie. And I liked the way you succeeeded in creating a Bodie who is very real, who is at times both ruthless and determined to survive and yet who can still respond to the plight of others and grow, believably, into the Bodie we know.

Thanks for a great story, I loved it.
