I read this short story this morning and the writer has captured the 'voice' of Methos and Amanda perfectly. I'm jealous! :)

I don't think you should be jealous.

The dialogue itself isn't bad, but it's lost in all the eye-rolling, grimacing, archness, and other bits of business. That added to the emotional tags punching up almost every line made them seem like drag queens putting on a show. I only made it halfway through.

I think a little direction goes a long way with these two. especially if you want their voices to be heard and their dialogue to shine.

It just hit all the right buttons for me first thing this morning :) Made me smile, which is a rare enough thing some days!
