What a wonderful story. You really got into John's head and dug out all the insecurities and emotions.

I loved how he and Rodney instantly hit it off and I liked the almost dream-like quality of it, with them isolated in a sea of white snow and silence, the outside world just a distant memory.

Of course, I didn't love that John felt the need to run away from that, even if he thought he was doing Rodney a favour.

The scenes with his dad and Dave were quite heartbreaking. So many wasted years and it turned out that it was all down to misguided ideas, miscommunication and stubborn pride. I'm glad that John got the chance to speak to his dad that last time; I'm glad he got the chance to hear it from the man himself that he wasn't a failure or a disappointment and I'm glad he got the chance to reconnect with his dad and with Dave. Yet I'm also sad about how it happened- It took them all those years to iron it out and actually say what they meant and it had to happen with so little time left to explore this new understanding. It's left John with a lot of regrets he can't do anything about fixing, but I think it's left him with a couple fewer regrets than if things had just gone on as they had been.

I'm glad that John decided to listen to his dad at long last and went to clear the air with Rodney. It wasn't easy and John certainly deserved Rodney's suspicion, but I'm glad he came round quickly.

It was great to see them a year later, settled and happy, even if they do have the odd fight. It was great to see Rodney playing the piano again and to see John flying again, not to mention doing a job he enjoys, making friends and making a go of things with Dave and his family.

Lovely story with some heartbreaking moments, some sweet moments and some very hot moments. Not to mention great banter :).

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much - I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. Yes, things didn't work out perfectly for John - the time that he & his father lost could never be reclaimed - but at least they were able to make a connection before it was too late. I think that helped John to realise that life is too short & made him willing to go & try to make it work with Rodney.rnIt's not quite a perfect happy ending - but a very hopeful one, I think. :-)

This is AMAZING! I really loved the mix of angst and sweetness, it made the fic feel so emotionally alive!
Really well written and beautiful!
I love it!

Author's Response: Thank you so much!rnI think both John & Rodney had to travel that angsty road until they could try & make a fresh start with each other.
