Two men both in pain and needing comfort. Slow and sweet. Wonderful.

Loved the simplicity of need in this story, hwo they took solace from each other, reafffirming that they had survived.

Author's Response: Thank you! I thought they needed a little comfort after all they'd been through. /g/

I've read this story so many times now and it grabs me every time. You wrote it beautifully; John and Rodney aren't OOC, acting as I think they would act. Rodney not telling John about Gaul was exactly him. I loved the last bit about the pillow.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it and I love hearing that you've read it more than once. Thank you, again.

That was beautifully done! Very touching and 'real'. As others have said, you have a wonderfully simple writing style that takes the reader through the story at just the right pace...not too fast and not too slow. I'm thinking, though, that there should be a sequel... ;)

Author's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Sequel. I've had one in my head. I even started putting it onto paper, but I'm not sure one can be written without taking something away from this story. But you never know it may grab me and demand to be written. Thank you, again.-

What a lovely story. I especially like that they didn't waste a lot of time talking. They did what they needed to do, and the actions spoke for themselves. I also like that McKay didn't tell John about what happened to Gaul until it came out in the briefing. I can't picture him blurting something like that out just so John will reassure him that it wasn't his fault. And I'm glad those reassurances, the rehashing of what happened in the episode, never happened in the story. It was a bad situation and going over and over who's fault it was and what they should have done differently would serve no purpose. Instead, they took what comfort was available and each dealt with things in their own way. Also, I'm particularly fond of your writing style. Stark and clean and not bogged down with a lot of flowery extra bits. I find myself searching your story for adverbs, which many writers overuse (myself included, sadly) and finding only a few. My only quibble was that Sheppard was remarkably spry for a man with broken ribs. Of course, his comment at the end of the ep about having broken ribs could have been joking, so the story is still plausible. I suppose it depends on interpretation.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it and thank you for your kind words about my writing style. I've never been very flowery. /g/ To be honest, I wrote the story a couple of weeks after I'd seen the episode and I completely forgot about John's cracked ribs. Ooops. He's a hero he can tough it out. What's a little discomfort when you're having good comfort sex? /g/ Thank you again for the review. chelle

I just wanted to say that I've read your work in a couple of fandoms now, and I am always impressed. Your grasp of characterization is fantastic, and you have a deft touch with both the physical and emotional aspects of the relationships. Thank you for providing me many enjoyable reads. This one is my new favourite.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. They brightened a difficult day and I'm thrilled that you enjoy my writing. Thank you, again.
