How have I overlooked this? Excellent job. I just read all 10 chapters today. Could not stop. More soon? Pleasepleaseplease.

Author's Response: Good lord. You realize this story is in the vicinity of 150 pages or something right? I'm impressed. I'm also writing as fast as I can, I promise.

_Lost_ was worth the wait! I love this story because even though the characters drive me crazy, I read every word as though my life depended on it. Sophie is intentionally baiting John and it drives me crazy since she is supposed to be so politically savvy. She must have a blind spot concerning Rodney. I was nearly screaming at Rodney to shut-up when he spoke to The Counselor because I KNEW they would kidnap him. John's reaction was completely consistent with previous behavior. If he is reachable, when he finds out Rodney is alive something very dark and bloody might happen to The Counselor. I await the next chapter! Good luck.

Author's Response: Everyone should have a blind spot regarding Rodney. He's such a great character. Thanks for the offer of good luck. I'm probably going to need it!

Man, I knew you were going to go somewhere dark considering the previous chapters, but I didn't imagine how dark it would be. I loved this fic before, and now that it has become an almost-but-bot-quite-death fic, I love it even more. It was totally worth the wait as the quality tops all expectations. :)

Author's Response: Awww...that's a really great compliment! I'm glad you like the darkness. I'm horrible at fluffy, so I have to play to my strengths.

So, I check for Second Fiddle updates pretty much everyday. However, this chapter is totally worth the wait. I don't know how or why this side of Sheppard is so believable, but goddamn. You rule.

Author's Response: Wow you must have been really, really annoyed with me for the last two and a half months! Thanks for the compliments, and if you're really that dedicated to the story, you rule too!

Oh, you are SO friggin' evil. Evil, I tells ya. Even before I read that last bit, I just KNEW that Rodney was still alive, and was chanting over and over in my head 'Carson, check the damned dust... CHECK IT!' I wonder what will make him do it... eventually. And really, how will these people make Rodney cooperate, when they really should've kidnapped John as well? Because, heh... Rodney can be quite the stubborn, intractable bastard when he wants to be. *beams* So eagerly looking forward to the next chapter... and I hope it's not so long a wait this time, hrm? ;) ----}-@

Author's Response: I swear, I'm just going to stop writing and hand the whole project over to you cause you're kind of scary with the READING OF MY MIND! *grin* I'm writing the next chapter as we speak, promise. ;)

OOH!! This was a great chapter and worth the wait. I can't believe John is jealous. Why doesn't he just ask Rodney about Sophie? He's such an idiot. But since he thinks he just lost the love of his life I will forgive him. Can't wait for the next part.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! Actually, John kind of did mention his whole thing with Sophie in chapter 9 and Rodney laughed it off. But you're right, he's still an idiot. :) See you soon.

I bloody knew it! I knew that your John was "pathologically attached" to Rodney, but I didn't think it was quite that much! What a wonderful exploration you have going of a "nicer"(/happier) Rodney and all his friends. You have no idea how happy I was when I saw that you'd updated! :)

Author's Response: *grin* I totally believe that between John and Rodney, Rodney is the more well-adjusted of the two. Plus he's my favorite. ;)

The thing about your John is that, while he's not Canon!John, he's OOC in a consistent way, and you aren't pretending that it's romantic or healthy. I think Canon!John would freeze, not break down screaming, but I can see it for this version of John. Heightmeyer is right, this John's attachment to Rodney is "pathological", not just True Love. It also helps that your Rodney is very canonical -- I love him waking up mid-thought! He loves John, but it's a much saner love than John's for him. I really hope you can find time & energy to continue this.

Author's Response: Oh you get it! You totally and completely get it! That's awesome! *hugs Doctor Science until ribs creak* My John is not quite sane at all even though he can fake it when necessary. This idea spun out of Canon!John, but you're right, the show's John would just bury it all deep and soldier on. (Which I also think isn't exactly healthy by the way.) More on the way!

Marvellous as usual. Love the image of John being mashed into the bed by Rodney climbing over him. As the others say...I want more soon :-)

Author's Response: Thanks sweetie! Anyone who's ever had to climb out of bed from the inside knows what I'm talking about there. More is coming soon, and you'll be the first to know. As usual. :)

Oh. My. God. I cant BELIEVE you ended it there!!!!! I'm crying here. Poor John. It's heartbreaking the way you described his grief. My God.... Please, don't make us wait so long again for another update. I may be forced to kill you.... (After I get the rest of the fic out of you of course)

Author's Response: Wow! A SECOND death threat. With the added bonus of torture. *barricades herself behind Titan, Ronon, and Steve the Wraith* I'm writing, I swear I'm writing! Don't hurt me! *throws Kavanaugh out there for good measure*

OMG!!! As I was reading this, I was all set to make comments about John's unreasonable behaviour and the funny/sappy wake up, about Teyla and Elizabeth's confidence in Sophie and how they were using John to teach her about adversity. But then you did this and now I'm just sitting in shock. I was sure that Rodney wasn't dead, as there's nothing in the warnings, but John doesn't know that :(. My poor John ::sobs::, it's so agonisingly sad and terrible to see him reduced to this...nothingness, so far gone that even Carson's drugs can't touch him completely. Will they be able to get him back? Will even Rodney's return fix him completely? Speaking of whom...what do his captors have in mind and will Rodney be able to escape. Will the Atlantis team even think to look for him? After all, Ronon was a witness, maybe he'll remember something more clearly when he recovers? I can't wait for the next update. It's such a painful place to end things at the moment. Laura.

Author's Response: Yeah I kinda took a left turn at looneyville there. You're asking all the right questions though, but I'm not telling the answers yet. And I do have answers, I promise. Did you really like the wake-up scene? I was going for fluffy, for once. Of course then I screwed it all up by making John catatonic with grief, but hey, I tried. ;)

I am so glad you updated! Now fix what you have done! John has to find Rodney. You have thoroughly depressed me.

Author's Response: I'll fix it, I swear. It may never be quite the same,but it won't be totally broken either.
