That was beautiful chapter. I don't know why, but this one seemed slightly better than the others. But anyway, I love this story :)

Author's Response: Thank you very much, it really pleased me to hear this. I found this a bloody hard chapter to write: it took ages and I was really unhappy with it at various points throughout. I hope that future chapters aren't going to prove as tricky :)

I love this story. How many more chapters will you be posting, or don't you know yet? Really good.

Author's Response: Thank you. I have the rest of the plot written as an outline but I don't know how many chapters that will be. This is my first attempt at writing a long fic so I have no basis for estimating the number of remaining chapters. I 'think' it's about 5 or so, but that could change. Hmmm, am I vague or what?!

Oh that was so touching, but if they stringing each other along w/ obvivion much longer I'm going to lynch them w/ it. LOL, sorry, I just think it's time for them to get a serious clue that's all. Love this story, keep up the good work.

Author's Response: I don't think they're entirely oblivious. I think they're just two men who have a lot to lose if they get this wrong. I'm trying to show that Rodney is further along on the path to having a clue, in that he's already aware of his attraction to men. His reason for trying to deny his attraction to John is that he doesn't want to lose John's friendship, plus he's fairly convinced John isn't into men - especially now that he's found out that John used to be married. On the other hand, John has further to go along the path to having a clue about his attraction to Rodney because he's always identified as straight so he has quite a bit of a change in his self perception to go through, and that's not something that happens overnight. Well, these are the ideas I'm trying to get across in the fic :)

Gah! Looks like my fears came true :(. I'm just glad that Rodney didn't realise that telling John he was ill was guaranteed to have the opposite effect than he hoped ;). It looks like they might actually be realising their feelings at last...but I don't hold out much hope thet they'll figure out each others as quickly as their own.


Author's Response: Yes, it has taken a while but they are finally starting to get there. Your reading of the situation is most perceptive. *takes hat off to you*

Typical of Rodney to fixate on the negative part of Ford's conversation, when he should have been listening to the part about how much happier John was now. Hopefully he won't let this little bit of information win out over John's obvious concern and caring.


Author's Response: I'm glad you think this was typical Rodney behaviour too, it seemed obvious to me that he would get the wrong message and be annoyed. So now we have to hope John can bring him around :)

*cries pitifully* as my son would say, i been waitin' long long time, and me really want an update soon cause this is my comfort story and i've been needing an aweful lot of comfort lately *sniffles*. miss updates. so i being a bitch and nagging. i nag really well, just ask hubby, i can be quite shrill. i will send cyber chocolate brownies and hot cabana boys in exchange for updates. though i realise that real life is probably stompin' all efforts to ply us with lovely boy lovin'? *sighs* real life sucks. just don't forget us totally addicted ciar fans- we're all junkies for this story and we need a fix!!!

Author's Response: *raises head above parapet and notes 'wow, there's a whole world out there'* ;) I'm so sorry you're suffering from my lack of updates; your pitiful cries have melted my nasty, stern, black heart and I have almost finished chapter 17 which I will upload as soon as I think it's good enough. I hope you and yours are feeling better since your bout of tonsilitis! Some of Chapter 16 was inspired by you and your illness. Unfortunately, I couldn't send John to take care of you, so I sent him to take care of Rodney instead :) Bye for now!

Author's Response: Isn't he sweet? John Sheppard has a tender, caring side too, he just keeps it well hidden under all that charm and cool LOL. So glad you're enjoying the story!

Taking care of someone when they are sick - John's got it baaaad.

Thank you for making the decision to write longer stories and sticking to it.

Author's Response: I thought having John take care of Rodney would show how he feels about him, even if he hasn't quite realised it as yet. I can't picture John volunteering to nurse someone unless he's very fond of the person - can you? Every now and then I do bang my head off the desk and wonder why I decided to write this monster of a story (well it feels like a lot of writing to me, it's probably peanuts compared to some fanfic *g*), but I am enjoying the process of getting to take my time and analyse things. It really was a good idea for me to post this publicly, otherwise I would never have kept going. The encouragement and desire for updates really helps me keep going.

Hi. Sorry I havn't responded before. I wasn't able to log in and I hate leaving anonymous reviews!!!!!

I really love this story.

However can you please put me out of my misery and tell me that they get together soon? It's all too much.

Seriously though, I feel sorry for Rodney and the way that he reacted to the fact that John was married. I think that it really works though, as this is the way that Rodney comes over to me in the series when it comes to realtionships. (I hope that made sense!!!)

I also like the way that John's feelings have developed over the chapters. It's sweet how Rodney is growing on him.

Now if you could get them together sometime soon my enjoyment of this story would be complete! :o)

I am loving it and will keep reading.

Thanks for a good one.

Author's Response: I'm so chuffed that you like this story. And I'm really, really pleased that liked my attempt at writing Rodney's reaction to John's having been married. I like to see Rodney growing on John too, and John has a while to go yet before he realises what he wants. It will take a while longer for them to get together I'm afraid, but we can have fun watching them along the way ;)

Aww...I feel bad for them both. How cute they are! I am so glad you found time in your busy schedule to write. Thanks for the response by the by. Can't wait for more! Soon...PLEASE!

Author's Response: So glad you're still finding them cute. Actually, I'm really pleased when I can make time to write too, perhaps if I didn't insist on writing chapters in one sitting, I might get more done. I shall have to try breaking the writing into chunks. You want more you say?? *wanders off to poke muse with a big stick*

They are cute when they are being hopeless. :) Good stuff.

Author's Response: Yeah, they are sort of cute when they're like that, aren't they? It's so difficult to balance their oblivious cuteness with the need for progression and development lol.

It's a wonderful story and I am enjoying them getting in touch with feelings and each other.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. I do worry from time to time, that I dwell on their feelings too much, but those are the parts of the characters that interest me most. It's reassuring to hear that other people like it too :)

Hey, I didn't notice anything right off the bat (except for some 'britishisms', but I tend to put them in my fic too). This was a Lovely chapter. Poor Rodney, not knowing what to do.

Author's Response: Not being American means I'm using telly, films and novels as my guide to faking it in SGA slashfic. Can I convincingly blame the odd non-Americanism on Rodney's Canadian heritage, do you think?? ;) I'm very chuffed you liked this chapter. I found it a hard one to write, as I wanted to try to reflect Rodney's feelings properly.

Didn't spot any mistakes (must admit here I'm veeeery tired, though).
Sooooo. I wanna comment. 'Cause I love your story. And I love this chapter. But I don't really know what to say...
McKay's semi-depression is so... so McKay. And John's taking care of Rodney's so adorable. I love the way you describe his feelings, the way it's so obvious for us that he's falling for the scientist but he doesn't see it yet, because he never thought about thinking about another man in that way.

Author's Response: Awww poor you, hope you feel less tired soon! I'm really glad you like this story and anything you have to say about it, I'm pleased to hear :) I was wondering if I'd made Rodney a bit too depressed at discovering John's been married before, but then I decided that Rodney is composed of emotional extremes, and has been in very strong denial about his feelings for John, so his feeling low could be plausible - I'm very glad you thought it was in character. Your description of John's behaviour and feelings is EXACTLY what I'm trying to convey - he's never felt that way about a man before, so it's all new territory for him and he doesn't have a frame of reference for the feelings Rodney generates within him.

Yes, there are some errors, but nothng that takes away from the story. I'm glad John' starting to realize he likes Rodney and perhaps just how much. Can't wait for them to take the next step and a bit of angst as the Job starts to be an issue or something. Keep it up. Loved reading this.

Author's Response: I'll take a break and then have a look over the text for errors tomorrow, but thanks for letting me know they don't distract from the story :) It's has taken John a while to get an inkling about how he feels for Rodney, things should build from now on...
