Reviews For Blood and Metal
Very very haunting story, superbly written. I applaud your skill. I'm afraid to ask for a sequel, so I shall simply ask for more fic. I agree: second-person perspective is very tough. But you have succeeded beyond anything I could do. I salute you! Have nice days.

This was great! It was all believable, and I could really feel the pain and shock. The last line very poignant.
The second person pov really puts you in the story, and you've written the detached shock well too. I'd say this qualifies as different to your usual :). Laura.

That's wonderful. Wonderful. I love second person when it's done well, and it's done so very well here; not a word is wasted and it packs a hell of a punch. Love the disjointedness and the ending, oh, ouch. Oh, Rodney.

Terrific! If you wanted to write something different you succeeded. You managed to capture the "warzone"-aspect of Atlantis nicely. In the first season the find themselves in a hostile galaxy, unable to return, unprepared for the situation, cut off from earth and supplies. They don't even really have to fight the Wraith until Siege. I so believe that under these circumstances it would eventually become Rodney's main job to built bombs against the Wraith, and yeah, eventually he'd have to kill somebody.
