This is... wonderful. It has kept me enthralled for several hours, and I thank you for writing it. I love the situation, the way you combine Atlantis with Beauty and the Beast, and the characterizations are lovely. I love the way John's character is slightly different for the situation.

And, given that most au's with Kolya include Rodney being tortured, I'm glad that didn't happen.

Thanks for writing this! I'm off to your page after I submit this and add the story to my favorites.

Author's Response: Beauty and the Beast might just be my favorite fairy tale and I love universe building (even if the universe I'm building is just a sorta-accurate version of a hundred years ago). Thanks for the feedback!

Loved it! Especially the bit about the Ferris Wheel. I am ashamed to say that I got sidetracked by Disney's version of Beauty and the Beast and sort of expected a face-off between John and Kolya.

Oops. But really, the original version is so much better. The best, though, is what you wrote. Thank you! ^_^

Author's Response: Heh. My main influences were actually 'Beauty' and 'Rose Daughter' by Robin McKinley, except that I cut out all that magic stuff. Rodney McKay don't do magic:)rnrnThanks for the feedback!

Lovely story. I always knew Rodney was a genius, no matter the time *snorts* Bug!John! *___* mmm.. blue... Just one little detail. Wasn't Rodney's father name Jack?? Great fic!

Author's Response: At the time, Jack was a nickname for John. Pennydreadful and I duked that one out -- she agreed with you:) Thanks for the feedback!

Waaaah! I love how you made this work. All the little things... Jesus, it would take me a while to go through them all. But seriously, I just loved it. The parallels were awesome, and I love how you made everything fit together so well. I was a little dubious upon seeing that it was an SGA Beauty and the Beast, but the story worked perfectly with the characters, John being iratusbug!beast and Rodney being pissy!beauty were just fantastic. Gah. I can't say enough good things about this. Wonderful, wonderful job.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for the feedback:)

Hmm...nice tie in of the roses. Atlantis crash-lands in Russia, oh, the fun that could be had with futurefic. Anyway, even though I basically knew the story line - don't we all to some extent - some interesting and pleasant turns. Admittedly Rodney is a genius but for him to go from basically 19th century science and botany to the level needed to understand retrovirus construction on the scale needed to transform John seems mighty contrived. Also, it ended a little abruptly to my taste - save Jeannie, get Jeannie married to Radek (a blacksmith??), everyone goes to the city/castle, save John, kill the Iratus bugs and everyone lives happily ever after. And what of the 'devil' himself, Koyla? I don't see him accepting the loss of Jeannie McKay with a shrug. There's a sequel circling the castle. But I will admit I did enjoy it very much. I am glad you wrote it and shared.

Author's Response: "Radek (a blacksmith??)" Hee! Honestly, that was the most engineering-relating thing I could come up with in rural Russia in the late 1800s. With regards to Super!Rodney, I had to make some concessions to the predefined story structure -- while I would have been loved to have Rodney tucked away for a decade happily engrossed in science, there's no way Zelenka would have waited *that* long to marry Jeannie. (Actually, I don't consider that nearly as weak as John and Elizabeth's backstory, but I seem to be the only one who has a problem with it:) Thanks for the feedback!
