Holy crap! That's pretty much exactly how I've been feeling about the ascended Ancients as the shows have progressed. Especially the current seasons. Thank you for spelling it out so eloquently.

Author's Response: Thanks. The same is true for me. You are welcome. Azar

Oh wow. This just... wow! This is outstanding. It really puts my feelings about the Ancients into words. I admit, I used to really venerate the Ancients like the others do, but ever since the whole Ori storyline came into being and we saw what the Others did in The Pegasus Project, my respect for them has just trickled down the drain. Excellent work! I also loved how it was Hermiod who saw this. I wonder if this is the opinion of all the Asgard, such as Thor, or if this is more his own personal opinion...

Author's Response: Thank you. I have been a bit skeptical about them since the fifth season of Stargate. The whole Orlin angle made me really start to wonder. Also, I would have to say that most Asgard view the situation this way. I don't think Hermiod is alone in his opinion. Azar

I love this view of the Ancients. I think it absolutely correct. And I love that it is told from Hermiod's POV. Wonderful story.

Author's Response: Thank you. It is good to know that I am not alone in this. Azar

Oh, this is good! Nicely written and very unique perspective. Articulates some things I think the show could touch on more/better. With few exceptions (the rogues, of course! And maybe a few of the Aurora crew) the Ancients just weren't NICE folks. And the 'veneration' aspect has always nagged at me. Glad to see I'm not the only one--but you express it better than I could. Thank you for sharing this.

Author's Response: Thank you. I completely agree, and the way the Athosians and the other residents of the Pegasus galaxy view the Ancients gives me the shivers most of the time. They are scarily similar to the Priors of the Ori in their dedication to people that obviously care nothing for them. Azar

I really liked this. For a while I'd been thinking that the Ancients were not exactly as benevolent as they see themselves to be. Glad to see this from Hermiod's perspective.

Author's Response: Thanks. I have been considering this for a while now, and what I have written is the only real conclusion I could reach. However, I suppose it does depend on perspective. The Ancients obviously think they are doing nothing wrong. Additionally, Hermiod seemed to be the best one. I couldn’t really picture anyone else realizing this until much later on. Azar
