John in a letter. It really works. John articulating feelings - no matter how well written - usually seems at least a little off. In writing, especially knowing he kinda sorta expects to be tearing it up before Rodney reads it, it just clicks.

Prime real estate and sparkly curtains. ;)

You make both of them come to life.

Author's Response: Thank you for your lovely FB. I really strive to get the character voices right--it's the most important part of the story for me, so you couldn't have said anything nicer. :-)

I really like this verison of how things might have gone with The Last Man, very much. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you! I don't do episode tags all that often, but this one really seemed to fit the challenge I had set for myself. :-)

Excellent fic. The letter was just so *John*. Even when he was letting Rodney in on his secrets- be it book reading or feelings- he had the self-deprecation going full steam. I liked the fact that he got some peace from writing each version of the letter and that he managed to say things he couldn't say aloud. He was spot on with his assessments of everyone, too. Things like Carson not being Carson, Ronon not sticking around if Teyla's not there, everything he said about Rodney.

I'm glad hologram Rodney made John promise to not destroy the letter, but I'm gladder still that Rodney found it and read it...and acted on it :).


Author's Response: Thank you! I really appreciate your very nice FB here. I worried a bit about the balance of this story, since the second half really didn't seem to match the first. I'm relieved to know that John's voice rang true for you and so very pleased you enjoyed it. :-)

That's Rodney all over! Defiant and scared, seductive and self-castigating! Angsty! Thank you!

Author's Response: Thank you! I wasn't sure how this one would turn out--it had some unexpected turns. I'm so glad you liked it!
