No matter how many times I read this fic I still get the same gleefully happy feeling and grin on my face. Perfect fic, perfect ending, for a perfect team/family living in a perfect city.

Author's Response: Thank you! I wanted gritty and intense, with a family ending.

Excellent fic- very dark and angsty. Seeing John like that is at once darkly impressive and oh, so sad. I liked Teyla's pov, getting her reaction to this man who was a ghost of her friend, how her conscience warred with her need for vengeance and her need to keep John safe. As for Ronon and Rodney, and I'm trying not to be too spoilery here, but how much worse was the torture they endured when they found out the true reason for it?

I loved the last scene, the aftermath and how the slow recoveries weren't the burden they would normally have been, because everyone was just so pleased to be whole again.


Author's Response: Thank you. I wanted to show that faced with such horrible events that John tried coping by shutting down, the problem was all that was left was grief and anger. I think its possible for him to be pushed to this dark part of himself. rnrnI wanted Ronon and Rodney to endure two types of torture the physical and then the mental trauma of knowing they were a means to an end to kill Sheppard and I think that was worse for them. And yes, yes I wanted a happy ending, I'm not a fan of bleak, evil endings.

Very good story. Too often, stories include too much torture to the point of disbelief--as in no one would actually survive that much damage--but you kept the tension and fear taut without elaborate torture scenes, so Bravo!

Author's Response: Thank you. People do tend to go overboard with the torture, I like realism and in this story I had most of the torture done 'off camera' so to speak. I was trying for non-stop tension so I'm glad it worked.
