Summary: The first time John had laughed in God, what? A month? Had been when the scientist from the alternate universe insulted someone John couldn't see.
John hated how pathetic it sounded even in his own head, but he hadn't been lying about the conversation. It'd been... cool, to meet someone new, who obviously wasn't a threat. Someone who didn't have the same pinched look of desperation that everyone on Atlantis did. John had no idea if the stupid rock was going to prove useful for anything other than Skyping with one guy from another dimension, but John was honest enough to admit he didn't care. It was the one good thing he had to look forward to.
