Well, I was going to strongly suggest that at ~least~ a short epilogue telling the story of how the alt guys get together was absolutely imperative, but I read your responses to the other reviews and I suppose that a "longer than the first 2 put together" story will do just as well.
Thank you for this, it was lovely, with huge doses of snarky goodness. I was impressed with their restraint, and your "voice" of the characters is dead on. I especially like your John - his "I know my Rodneys" attitude was very endearing. Not quite sure that John would have not noticed bigger changes in a world where gay marriage was normal and legal long before he did, but that's my only quibble. :-) I think we'd be a HELL of a different - and better place were that only so. We can dream, huh?
Why "Eva"? I was thinking maybe Roney had the hots for Eva Longaria, but then he'd have to have a big dark secret Desperate Housewives guilty pleasure indulgence. lol
Brava! Great story, nice job. I eagerly look forward to the sequels.
Author's Response: Thanks hop you enjoy the next stories as well. The no DATA etc in the alt universe popped up over the course of things when we realized there was no reason we had to have it, I suppose the reason for John not noticing it is that he really wasn't out that much and thatwhen he was, Rodney usually had him distracted Why Eva... I believe I started thinking of Adam and Eve and played around with it a bit - though I like the Desperate Housewives idea! Thanks again, we're glad you liked it and hope you liek the others as well!
Eva definitely a lucky cat.
Any plans to include an ATA positive feline in a future sequel? (I suppose that would be somewhat later than those already planned.)
Author's Response: Hrmm, we hadn't thought of that, but you never know - talk about the cat who walked through walls!
I really enjoyed this story. I do hope there is going to be more, I'd like to see if the other John and Rodney can make it work between them too. Thanks for a great story!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, there's definitely more, the next story was posted today and we're nearly done with the third so keep an eye out ;)

Great story. Loved the flow, and action. Would love to see what happened on the other side of the gate after Maj. Sheppard got home.
Author's Response: Thanks very much and you will - that will be the third story in the series :)
oh wow, that was lovely! um... any chance of a sequel showing things from the other side (the 'other' john and our rodney)? ;)
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, that sequel is done and in editing so it should be posted within the next week. Hope you like it as much :)
Yeah ... loved it muchly ... can't wait to find out what happens to the 'other' McKay and Sheppard
Author's Response: And you will! So far that story is longer than the first 2 put together.

Of course John Sheppard and Rodney McKay are destined for each other in every universe :D
I loved the banter, the characterisation and the premise, but especially the banter (and I applaud both John and other Rodney for their restraint)
I'm not one for asking for sequels (I'm a big fan of single rounded off stories), but I can't help wanting to read how Major Sheppard and other Rodney fare when they finally meet. I think it would make a wonderful AU story :)
Author's Response: Thanks so much! We've got the sequel (relating to the major and 'our' Rodney) done and in editing as well as a third story involving the major and the other Rodney. Hope you enjoy those as well!
