Reviews For Down to You
Well, I don't want to sound like a broken record here, but WOW! This was just so great. I loved all the background you gave Rodney, and that it was chock full of details. Loved the tupperware, and the fact that it was recycled to Missy :). Jeannie was great. Scary but in that protecting family, den mothery type of way. It was funny seeing another McKay temper, and I loved how it rolled off Radek and co. like water off a duck's back, all so used to dealing with Rodney daily :). I was amused that it took so long for John to cotton on to who she was *g*. I also liked Jeannie's ability to read Rodney and translate his little mannerisms. I loved how Missy dragged John everywhere, and how Rodney and Jeannie finally got caught up, and Stevie was great too...unlike the creature Richard, who got his just desserts! Nice cameos from Jack and Daniel too. I really liked John's epiphany in the kitchen, and the way Rodney kept looking concerned after Elizabeth and Kate etc had had a word with him. The ending was great too, I loved that they finally realised their feelings and that going back to Atlantis wasn't going to stop them. Excellent work. Laura.

Wow..I just...wow. This is really *really* good. I mean Tupperware- that's just odd enough to be true. It was soo real, and I really wouldn't be surprised if canon did something like this. It's just-wow.

This is the best Sheppard/McKay first time story that I’ve read yet! The piece of history you give Rodney is amazing and I love the realistic details you give about his childhood (Tupperware!). Jeannie’s situation is believable and inspiring. A lovely story.

This was beautiful. It's good to read a Rodney backstory that doesn't give him an abusive childhood - just an uncomfortable one. And the Tupperware is pure genius, in particular the tupperware/John analogy.

WOW. Oh, wow! I am so amazed and taken in by this story! It was beautiful, it was funny and sad and wonderful! Amazing! Jeannie was great, as were her kids, and John and Rodney were perfect. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I can't wait to read more of your stuff!
