That was very misleading, you should have said it was a John/Teyla right from the start and then let your readers decide if they would like to read it or not.

Author's Response: I'm sorry. I added the note at the end as an afterthought, because that was not what I was trying to do with the story. It was supposed to be about their friendship and John's reaction to losing Elizabeth, not trying to get J/T together. You can't deny that they were friends. rnI'm sorry that I didn't make it clear in the notes what I was trying to do. rnGod blessrn-jewel

OK first and foremost I am not a fan of John/Elizabeth. I am in my twisted lil heart a McShepper. However that doesn't mean that I won't read other pairings. Now having said that, I absolutely had to read this story after I read the previous review.
I really enjoyed it. It was well written and while I am not a fan of the pairings I found it very tender. Good job

Author's Response: I'm not always a fan of them, either; but a good friend of mine is, and something that she wrote inspired me ;). And I appreciate that :). Oh, really? You read it because it was reviewed badly?rn:) Yay! Thank you so much! :D I'm glad that you thought so in spite of the pairing :).rnGod bless

That warning about John/Teyla should've been put at the beginning so that those who don't like that pairing would've known to avoid reading this story instead of getting hit with that rude surprise at the end.

Furthermore, using the "death" of Elizabeth as an excuse to push John and Teyla together in such a clumsy way is very immature and shows a lack of basic understanding of the kind of people all three of these characters are. This story is nothing more than a slap in the face to John/Elizabeth fans and to Teyla fans alike.

Author's Response: Okay, I can see where you're coming from with how I wrote it, but you're wrong about what I was trying to do. When I wrote this, I intended it to be a J/T *friendship* fic, not something romantic with them. I added the note at the end as an afterthought when I realized that I wrote it in a way that could be seen as shippy, even though that wasn't my original intent. I was not trying to be sneaky or underhanded.rnrnAnd the reason that I used Elizabeth's death in the way that I did was because I just read a fic by a very good friend of mine with a similar circumstance, and where John *was* alone grieving alone. I was not misunderstanding the characters or insulting them to write John's regret the way I did, or Teyla comforting him at the end; they're best friends, and that's just what she does; she helps her teammates keep themselves together, grounded. I wasn't trying to push them together romantically. And John kissing her hand at the end by no means indicates that he's going to throw himself into a relationship with her. rnrnBut if you want to talk about *immature*, how mature is it that you're not confident enough in your own opinion to leave a signed review? If I didn't think that anyone else who may read this review will deserve an explanation for all of the things that you mentioned and accused me of, this would not have been worth a reply.
