I love the usage of the fight to illustrate aspects of their personalities. I'm curious, do you know if Bates was shipped back to Earth following his enforced coma or whether he stayed on? I know we've never seen him...
Author's Response: He went back for surgery to save his life, its unknown if he'll come back. Thanks!

I really loved the insight you gave us into Bates' past with SGC. That he got trained by Jaffa warriors, and how that gives him an advantage. Great story!

ooooh, never thought of this pairing before.
To echo the sentiments of others: this was a really good fic. Very revealing about both Bates and Teyla. I like the fact that Bates studies her, not to take advantage, but to learn her without the recriminations between them. Presenting himself as something new which makes him intersting to Teyla and opening them both up to examining their biases about each other. And the sex flowed right into it so well. Brava.

*G* Loved it! There isn't enough Bates/Teyla fic out there, and this is so well done! Write more, please.
A very interesting look at (shall I say) the nicer aspect of xenophilia. Bravo. I particularly liked the "I do not understand you either" as it seemed (to me) to highlight the fact that very little is still known about the Athosians. So...sequel, please?
