Heh. Lovely job. I felt a bit disconnected from Rodney through the end, though. Not sure why exactly. Also, what about his ribs? And all the poking with needles and crap? ANd what was that alien doing ot him when it took Rodney out of the cell? Who WAS that masked alien? ;) Were they woken up because Rodney took the ZedPM? Were they the "Gods" that the natives had spoken about? If so, maybe that explains why the D'hallens were pretty much naked all the time. Easier for scaly aliens to do their weird little probes... ----}-@ Krys

Oh, this was very... intense and intelligent and evocative. This is what it feels like when you do stupid wrong things and the end gave just the perfect reason not to do them (besides being stupid and wrong things). I liked it a lot!

A fic with a morally bankrupt Rodney...mmm. nice. so dark and angsty. And it has gut wrenching passages like this: The way Elizabeth looks at him, it really does hurt. Because she looks hurt. She looks stunned, too. Like she expected better. Which is even worse, because it means that at one point, she must have thought he was a decent guy. This fic is like a kick to the gut. It's so in character. I can completely see Rodney doing something really bad for what he sees as the greater "good."
This story is phenominal. Great. Perfect from concept to realization. You write good Sheppard, you write good McKay, you made a great scenario and you just wrote it out so wonderfully. I am in awe of this fic.
