This is great. I love the sentinel/guide idea in other fandoms. I hope you continue this maybe make it a series. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thank you! The Sentinel/Guide dynamic is a wonderful premise, especially when applied to sci-fi universe like SGA. Very smooth transition. If you can travel the universe, what's a few hyper senses between friends?

RE the consent issues- fair enough, I get what you're saying.

I think any plot device such as bonding, where the bond is not a conscious decision on behalf of the participants but is something outside of their control (in this case genetics and outside societal standards) and particularly where the (seemingly) more reluctant member of the pair appears to be given a reward (pleasure) for pleasing the (seemingly) more dominant partner can be open to a different interpretation.

For some people any situation where choices are limited or taken away from innocent individuals, even (or sometimes especially) if it's "for their own good" can be a consent issue, more so if the situation is sexually charged. I admit I've never seen The Sentinel, so maybe these things are dealt with in such a way as to skirt the whole thing :)

That is more what I meant about consent, rather than "John pressuring Rodney into doing something he doesn't want to do", which I get wasn't your intention at all :) I realise all that sounded quite negative but I did enjoy this fic (especially young McKay squabbling with his mother!) so I hope you're not too offended by the above.

Author's Response: No offense taken. It is nice to engage in debate and see how others interpret your stories. I should keep in mind that others are perhaps more sensitive to issues of consent. I understand that this is a deeply emotional topic. That is why it is such an interesting concept to explore as a writer. Thank you!

I really enjoyed this, thanks :) I was hoping there was going to be more too, if you're taking requests ;)

Author's Response: Oh, heck. Who doesn't take request in fanfic? :) That's how I end up writing half of my fics. I am glad that you enjoyed this fic and thank you for reading!

End? What do you mean 'end'? There's more to this story and I am very keen to read it! not that I am not grateful for what you have shared with us so far...

Author's Response: Well, "end" for this section of the series. :) I wanted to see how it would "fly" before I got sucked into another universe.

Oh!!! Excellent!!! Tell us that John's already been accepted by MIT and he's just playing with Rodney. MORE! MORE!

Author's Response: Well, I think John's dad can pull some strings and tuition isn't an issue. I do think you will see them at MIT. Thank you!

OMG I love this with an unholy glee. Sentinel fusions always thrill me and I love how you've made your fic different than everyone else's. Of course they're exceptional, they're Sheppard and McKay. *g* I love their voices here, and their dynamic. And Rodney's mom not needing a man! *chortles* Awesome.

Brava! Please tell me you're writing more. :)

Author's Response: Nice! I am not sure I have ever ranked "unholy glee" before. :) The Sentinel/Guide dynamic is one of my personal favourite genres, so I just wanted to add to it. I like how other authors have taken it on, but I am also glad that you thought I had something unique to add. Thank you kindly!

You've got some slightly dodgy consent issues here, but other than that - nice story.

Author's Response: I do not think there are any consent problems with this story, though I do appreciate you may have another opinion. Have you considered that Rodney has a different perception of the situation? That his ego made his think that John is somehow stalking him? This is an instinctual bond, which Rodney really wants, even if he denies it.
