Almost didnĀ“t read it - hell, that would have been a waste! Loved it, it was really cool, Sheppard and McKay staying together- it was real, not smutty or silly or sissy, just real and good! A++++! Yours GB

Wonderful story! I especially liked the first part, the slow pace and slight confusion. Very nicely done!

Great story. I loved both povs and think you did a great job with the characterisations. John's pov first: I could so see him retreating like that, caught up in a mixture of shock that he could lose Atlantis, resignation that there was nothing he could do about it and the need to distance himself from Rodney in preparation for losing him too. I could see how being stuck in that cabin would trouble his pilot nature, his need to be in the big, wide open space feeling trapped in the confines of the small cabin and it's think woodland surroundings, everything smelling so earthy. And then there was Rodney, slowly cluing in to what had John behaving so strangelym, willing to work on the problem when it was John, even though anyone else would have just been left to it as he got on with more important things. I loved that he finally got it and immediately got John out of the cabin and into the fresh air. I also loved that that eased things, allowed John to relax and come back from his retreat. The ending was great too. I loved Rodney's little epiphany about them having a fall back if Atlantis was denied John, how he finally understood the deeper feelings running under the surface. I also loved that he had said epiphany in such an incongruous place, amidst the washing machines and spilled powder :). But I was glad that the fall back option wasn't needed just yet. Great story. Laura.

I think you really nailed the complex emotions of two really repressed people. Rodney's POV lets us see Sheppard's silences and fears bereft of his usual shield of laid-back nonchalance. Of course, Rodney's use of his intellect, constant work and abrasive attitude make just as effective a shield. It seems that together neither needs be anything but himself. A relationship of equals in times of war and peace, it would seem. Thanks for sharing. Excellent work.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the thoughtful feedback. I'm thrilled the characterisation worked for you. Writing John gave me an especially hard time. "A relationship of equals in times of war and peace" I love that. Again, thank you for your kind words.

OOoh, I loved this... I like the use of rain to imprison the two, where in Atlantis it's a welcoming freedom. I especially liked your characterisation of John, closing himself off. Thank you for a happy ending too ... phew.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! And you're welcome - in truth, I like happy endings too much to not write them :).
