This was really intriguing, with all the snippets of backstory for John. But it was also quite sad to see how, although not really an unhappy childhood, it was an isolating one. It's made John the survivor he is, and it's easy to see where he got his protective drive from, but it's also easy to see where he learnt his ways of distancing himself.

I'm glad Rodney seemed to understand it, at least in broad terms, and that he didn't let John push him away in the end. Great stuff.


Author's Response: I first wrote this as an exercise in figuring out what would make a John Sheppard, and cannibalised my own childhood (on which this is heavily based)--and yes, moving a family around every few months/years is very alienating. Thanks for reading and commenting!

This is good, but I'm going to have to go away and put my brain back together and then read it again to try and figure out why.

Taken seperately each of the pieces is simple, but put together the way you have they are amazing.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading! Apologies for any brain disassembly....

Awesome story! Extremely well-written and so sad...I really like the backstory you wrote for Sheppard *way* more than TPTB. His life as J.C. makes much more sense, and whoa! West Africa! So creative and interesting! I really liked this. Thanks so much for posting.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading! (I'm not that creative: a lot of JC's backstory is actually mine, except I never had my own gun *g*)
