Wonderful story. I really appreciated the detail in the sex, and how their relationship progressed.

Screw what Outcast said about John's family... *This* is his family to me. This entire story is simply amazing and gorgeous even as the boys deal with the pain of their mission.

I would love to see more of this 'verse because it just hits every note perfectly.

This is the story that made me really believe the Sheppard/McKay pairing. It's truly wonderful. But all your stories are!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the comments. There is nothing any author likes hearing more than "Your story kept me up reading." Thank you. And thank you for reccing it as well. That's very kind of you.

This story is amazing! I love the pace, the way the whole thing just seems to flow. The way their relationship evolves is completely believable - I especially like the complexity of it all, that they don't just fall into each other's arms and everything's fine again. Malcolm and Olivia are pretty much exactly what I think they would have to be, considering the son they produced ;) In short - it's great. Better than great. Worthy of McKay himself.

Author's Response: Thank you!! I'm sorry for the late response, but I'm thrilled you enjoyed it so much. Worthy of McKay, that's quite a compliment. Thank you.

Thank you so much for writing this. I have read some stories (by a particular author) in the Jack/Daniel universe that deals with them in a very loving and tender way - making their physical relationship an add on to what they already had and was yearning for a story in the John/Rodney ilk that did this too. I just read that story. Don't get me wrong, the second half was hot, but it's the build up that really makes a story for me, and yours was perfect. I admit I was perplexed when John's parents turned out to be so accepting and caring - why would John not want to send them a message in 'Letters From Pegasus' if he loved them so much? - but then you introduced the barrier of their pacifist beliefs, and I understood that if John had unresolved issues with them in this area he might not want to send them anything. This story reminds me of one of my favourites from the other author I mentioned, with Jack taking Daniel home to his parents - so similar in tone, sheer warmth and depth - and yet so different. I feel very affectionately about both. Wow, this review is almost as long as some people's vignettes - must stop!

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind feedback. I'm thrilled you liked the story, and especially happy you felt it had warmth and depth. Thank you!

I just loved this story it was beautiful and very sweet. The love was very obvious and I loved how they both seemed to defend each other in their own way. I would love to read a follow-up this story. Sue ;)

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Thank you. I apologize for being so late in responding. I don't thin there will ever be a follow-up but I did write a description of some of the things I imagine happened in response to an LJ meme. If you'd like to read it, it's about half way through this entry:

I absoloutly adored this story. The sex was hot the banter was John and Rodney crazy and the story of the begining of their relationship was just beautiful. What a tallented story teller you are. huggles, from haggy

Author's Response: Sorry for the late response. I always forget to check my wraithbait account. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Thank you. I have to confess that I love writing John and Rodney banter. /g/

This story was simply amazing. Unfortunately, my local channel is WAY behind in the series, and I'm only mid-way through season one, but even though I haven't seen the episodes, your story made sense. I've never read more realistic sex. And the realism didn't take away from it's sexiness or romance. It added to it. I like that you brought in the details of homophobia, acceptance, etc. Did I say I love the story? Because I really do. In fact, although I am new to the fandom, I'd say this story is the best I've read.

Author's Response: Actually, I started the story during the first half of season one, so you're good. I'm thrilled you found the sex realistic but still sexy, and even more thrilled you loved the story. Thank you.

I just reread this story for, I don't know, the fifth time or something like that and I just wanted to let you know how much I love it. Even though they are hurting quite a lot, it's such a feel good story and it makes me smile every time. Thanks!

Author's Response: Thank you. I'm incredibly flattered that you're reread the story that many times.

Just wanted to let you know I read this via MakesMeWannaDie's rec on LJ, and it's absolutely lovely. Sweet and hot in parts, and utterly FUNNY in others and I've bookmarked it for later rereads, because I'm sure I'll want to. John's parents are great, too - nicely observed in terms of those fun little blindspots even the most liberal of parents can produce. And, okay, did I mention the adorable and also the great sex and them bookshopping? Ee. Lovely, thank you!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. At the time I wrote it it was one of the most ambitious stories I'd ever attempted, and such lovely feedback makes me happy.
