This was quite a painful chapter in many ways, what with recovering bodies, people getting injured- Blair seriously, and the whole misunderstanding accidental break up over nothing thing with John and Rodney.

I was glad to see some things working out reasonably well in the end, with Blair much better thanks to Rodney, and John doing his best to make Rodney understand. That was perhaps the most painful thing of all- John trying to talk about feelings. I'm glad Rodney got it in the end.


Author's Response: It's funny, I didn't THINK it was all that painful, but I had so much trouble writing it -- I guess that was my subconscious telling me it really did hurt. Thanks for reading, anyway, and for your always insightful comments!

Uh... *tries to get brain together*

Ooh, aah, and fabulous. That's all I can say at this moment. In a good way.

(Also, Jim and Blair! Awesome.)

I pasted some parts I particularly liked into Word. I'll put them below.

"Just think of it like a phone number," Rodney chimed in from behind him, at the same moment that Jackson said, "Think of it as a word." A second later, the two were arguing about mnemonic representations of Stargate addresses.

- I love how their thoughts about this fit so well with their personalities. Wonderful detail. -

Rodney wasn't finished with his paean to Colonel Carter. "Blonde, tall, legs up to here, smartest woman in two galaxies, almost a match for my own unparalleled brilliance? Only woman truly worthy of bearing my progeny?"

- The last sentence especially is so, so Rodney. I can very clearly see and hear him saying it. -

It made John think of sex. He supposed after a little time with Rodney, uncontrollable laughter would always make him think of sex. He had to work to keep his own face straight.

- ! -

Thank you so much for this story. I enjoyed it immensely.

Author's Response: Thank you for the detailed comments! Each of those bits has a special place in my heart, too. I'm glad you liked the inclusion of Jim and Blair!

I greatly enjoyed the fic. And loved that it had a cross over too! Time was just stretching out while I was waiting for the Wraith to show up. :)

What a great update! I am really enjoying this AU. :-) Thank you for writing this story. One question though... The Goa'uld device Ellison gives to Rodney sounds like a "Ribbon" weapon not a healing device. Was that intentional? Do the "Ribbons" in this AU also heal? Take care!

Author's Response: Oops, that was an author mistake. I thought the ribbon devices served both functions. Actually, now that you mention it, at one time I guess I knew there was a difference, but I forgot. Oh well, as you pointed out, AU -- obviously the Goa'uld in this universe are more interested in multi-functionality. Thanks for catching the mistake!

I was so excited to see the update. I skimmed through, then went back and re-read all of it from the beginning.

It is just as exciting to read as it was the first time. And this chapter was a great addition.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad to know you liked it -- especially since this chapter was a real bear and took me 14 months to write! The previous two chapters took about 14 days each. Hmmmph!
