I read this last night and didn't get a chance to post a comment then. It's brilliant. Really, really enjoyed it, even if it's got that under lying sadness of the John who died and Rodney's love of him. I loved the CSI riff too :-)

Author's Response: I am attracted to sad stories but have this weakness where I want to see everything turn out well anyway. So that was why I chose to set this story in an AU from the very beginning because I couldn't bear the thought of *really* killing John. I know, I know, it's weird. Glad you liked it and thank you very much for letting me know.

Brilliant - well written, well plotted and just great. Although my heart does kinda hurt for the JS who died...

Author's Response: I really appreciate your review--you're right about 'JS prime' there...hmmn, but now you have me thinking about a reverse story in which it is J that is looking for R because, well, Atlantis *needs* a Rodney. The logistics might be tricky but the plot bunny is out of the gate and running now...thanks!

This was great. Loved every bit of it.

Curious though - what was the image that started it all?

Author's Response: I guess I forgot to mention that, eh? I happened to catch an old episode of CSI:Miami in which JF played a bad guy. Hard to shake that image of him standing in the casino in that loud shirt looking every bit the bad boy your momma always warned you about! Everything kinda snowballed from there...

This was so well written I don't even know where to begin with my praise for it. The set-up, the lines, the interaction between the chars, the raw emotion displayed by Rodney. /standing ovation

Author's Response: Aw...(blushes with embarrassment). I must admit, I really enjoyed writing the 'almost-John' character. Thank you very much. I am so glad you liked it.

The longer the better, I say. That was a fabulous story!!

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! I was worried that it seemed to be a *very* long story in which not much happened but everything seemed to need to be there. Thank you for your review!

Awesome! Plotty and twisty and wonderful.

Author's Response: Big grin on this end! (Back to the keyboard to torture characters again) Thanks!

I loved that first hotel room scene. SO Funny!

Author's Response: Well, J is a little bit of a bad boy, isn't he? I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for your review--feedback just primes to pump to go and write more...
