He only has feelings but not the actual events. So is this guy trying to dig himself into a early grave before he actual help them by quoting Rodney? Very poor taste. Loving this fic...a lot :D

Author's Response: Well, he has the feelings coupled with the sights and sounds - - like watching a movie where you feel what the characters are feeling. But yes, he doesn't understand all of it, not even close. Glad you're liking it!

Seriously loving this fic. You have a lovely way of writing and you capture all the characters wonderfully, including the OCs (which I always think is impossibly hard). Can't wait for the next update.

Author's Response: Thank you! I have trouble with OCs, too - - I'm trying hard to keep Midran in three dimensions, and it's good to hear that it's working. More will be up later this week and I hope you stick around.

Ooooooooo... so not a good idea to be bringing up stuff you have no idea of what you're frelling talking about, bud. You only know one viewpoint, not the whole picture. Bad bad bad... VERY bad to venture there! Ooo, lookee... dragons! More soon? Please?! ----}-@ Krys

Author's Response: Yes, Midran is going to be in some trouble if he ever meets Sheppard, isn't he? His intentions are good, but he's very much mistaken about so many things . . .

Hopefully they didn't actually trap RODNEY in that thing. As in, his actual SELF and not just his memories. If that is the case, hoo doggies, is John and Ronon gonna come back with a few Jumpers full of fully arms Marines and blow that place apart till they get Rodney back. They might just do that anyway, don'cha think? ;) Hell, *I* would. Bastards. More soon? Please? ----}-@ Krys

Author's Response: Interesting speculation . . . *wicked laugh* More will be coming up very soon. Thanks for reading!

Wow! your story telling rivals that of your story's namesake. I find this story compelling on many levels. The crystalline memories are a wonderful plot device. I wonder if you plan to use them to give Rodney's friends a further glimpse into the psycological wounds that forged such an enigmatic personality. I impatiently await your next installment!

Author's Response: Thank you very, very much! I'm glad you like the crystalline memories and I promise that they will play a larger part as the story goes on - - also, more will be up very soon.

I don't usually leave reviews here. But let me just say: Oh. My. God. This is beautiful and agonizing, and it makes my heart hurt in so many ways. You have their voices down--they never break character. Also, beautiful phrasing. That bit from the first chapter, "clear and dark as midnight," just... wow. Wow. You are amazing and I can't wait to read what happens next.

Author's Response: It's very flattering that I could persuade you to leave a review, then, and your compliments are extremely gratifying. I'm astonished to hear that you like my writing and as for the character voices, that's my favorite compliment!

I have to confess a weakness for McKay thrashing, when it's handled as brilliantly as this. The responses of his team, his adopted family, the friends he may not even realize he has make such fics powerful, in my opinion. I love to see relatively shallow sci fi taken to raw, human depths by writers like you.

Author's Response: Thank you. For me, it's the humanity brought by the characters that really makes the show, and that's what draws me to writing. It's nice to know that that's what draws you to reading, too.

This story is *brilliant*. I keep checking back to see if there's any more to read yet. The fear of what the memory device might do to McKay was scary enough...the concept that *everything* that he is, is now recorded onto the crystal is horrifying.

Author's Response: Exactly, that's just it. With all of them being so concerned with the side-effects, they never considered the main effect itself. Thank you so much!

Well this is a bad situation. Will they view the crystal while Rodney recovers (if he recovers?). Nice to see there is a local that feels ashamed (as long as he doesn't turn on them....) This is a great fic, can't wait to see how it all turns out :D

Author's Response: Thanks. Yes, there is some guilt at work there - - and as for the crystal, he doesn't actually have it with him, but it will appear later in the story.

Wow, another great story from you! From the first half of Chap. 1 I hoped the story was going in the general direction it did, because it so strongly reminds me of James Tiptree's classic short story, "Her Smoke Rose Up Forever". Was that an inspiration for you, or is it a case of great minds thinking alike?

Author's Response: I'm glad you like it. No, I've never read the Tiptree story, but I'll make sure to check it out - - I tend to like these kind of sci-fi stories.
