Wonderful story - very sweet. Thank you and I hope to hear more about the chopper(hint hint) :)

Author's Response: Thank you! Unfortunately, I don't think a sequel is in the works, but you can use your imagination. John wakes Rodney up horrendously early, drags him into the chopper and they go flying around Atlantis, John weaving among the buildings and Rodney covering his eyes and yelling about how they're going to die, but secretly loving spending time with his best friend. There you go. A condensed sequel. :)

This is one of the most delightful stories I've read in ages. I love your take on them - John never really having been appreciated and honestly thinking that he wasn't and then - wow. I loved Rodney's warmth and understanding and his quick dismissal of all the clods in John's life as a waste of space. Right on, McKay! The emotional crack up was done gracefully and sweetly. I did like the idea of the marines and Teyla having to be so serious on the way to the pier - the grim "we be hunting wraiths here!" looks all the time they're killing themselves not to grin like lunatics. Such a long covert ops, with such a lovely purpose! Of course Rodney can keep his face shut when he has to - he's been on too many classified projects not to have that skill. The line about the gazell was a crack up. (And yes, having argued ribbons around a few odd sized and shaped packages in my time, the very idea of trying to wrap and ribbon a helicopter is just - oy vay! This was delightful and I thank you! (Not to mention salaaming at your feet!)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I got the idea for this story a while ago and I thought it would be an absolute riot to write, and it really was! I really liked putting in John's little break down and how Rodney dealt with it (I'm a little bit of a McShep fan :)). Some people said that it was strange to have John lose it like that, but I think it wasn't that unrealistic since John wasn't expecting anything like this to happen, not to mention something of that magnitude. I always thought that John doesn't realize how much the people he protects appreciates what he does and that they don't just think he's fumbling around and trying to fill shoes that are too big for him. This story was my way of dealing with that, and of course, wanting to write a lighter, funnier story than my usual fics. Thanks so much for taking the time to review!

This is just about the sweetest thing I've ever read. Poor John! I can't believe they pulled it off - Rodney has the biggest mouth in two galaxies... guess it just proves how much they really love him. Bless!

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, Rodney does have a big mout but he was properly motivated to keep it shut. After all the things John does for them, he does deserve an awesome birthday, doesn't he?

*snicker* I love the image of John blithely strolling by scientists holding bits and pieces of his chopper.

Author's Response: Yup. The geeks can be darn sneaky when they put their mind to it, huh? I'm thrilled you liked it and thanks for taking the time to review!

*clapping* That was very sweet. :) I love how they kept John busy so he wouldn't know. Cool prezzie too. *L*

This story is delightful! I can just see Teyla and the marines trying not to laugh as they follow Sheppard to the north wing looking for the so-called intruder. Marvelous - thank you!

Author's Response: I was laughing so hard while I wrote that scene! I'm thrilled you liked it. Thanks for taking the time to review!
