Very creepy, very capturing. I love it. A lot.
This was totally awesome. I agree with Huggle, you really did capture it well, and I liked the way you described the feelings of the Wraith trying to take her over. Excellent job!

This was excellent! I love Teyla's progression into Wraithdom - the hunger and later referring to them as Lanteans....just wonderful!
You really captured Teyla's predicament in this story: having to utilise her Wraith inheritance, a part of her that she is disgusted by. It's not as easy or pleasant for her as it is for John; he got the better side of the deal (even if the view of the Ancients has changed). He sort of got the Angel DNA and she got the demon DNA. And John doesn't have to tell Atlantis he is Ancient. Teyla has to let something unpleasant and vicious bubble up from inside herself every time she lets her Wraith side loose. The way she struggled to distance herself from her Wraith mindset after flying the ship was well explored; it reminded me of the S1 ep where she had the nightmare about feeding on John. But I love that he sort of brought her back with his presence and she wanted him to be there the second time, like he could keep her anchored. Powerful, and well-written. Thank you for sharing (and sorry for the rambling review, but this really got to me).
