I also was under teh impression that it was Rodney, but that the doctors were trying to understand why their innoculation to a certain disease did't turn out as planned and wanted t experiment on him. I thought that the people were something like pygmies at first, and that when the blue eyes came up--the first time--that he was saved. The dark hair and all that about Sheppard an Ronon didn't sink in untill the end. Just...wow.

Author's Response: Thanks! All part of my evil plan... :-)

#26 ought to have something about an exception being made for Daniel, who was married off to the daughter without even having a say in it. This is looking very interesting. When's more comming?

I think I know what they meant, you need to change the category from "Ship Pairings" to "Slash Pairings" Other than initially throwing me off with the category, good story. I laughed and wondered for a minute if Rodney was going to look around for a minute to make sure he didn't see any taun-tauns running around.

Author's Response: I see what you mean, now. I've changed it to Slash Pairings: Multiple Relationships. It wasn't my intention to confuse *S* Glad you enjoyed it, however.

I'm a really religious person, and non-Christian, and I absolutely loved this story. What I wouldn't give to have an insight or ability like the ones you gave Zelenka, to know who really is worth the trouble. I wish they had rating thingise on these, out of a 0 to 10 scale this is without a doubt an 8 or a 9.

Author's Response: Thank you. I doubt many would rate this story too high, so I'm glad there is no 'rating thingsie' here. ;) I wish I'd have Radek's ability myself (not to see who the person in front of you really is - that's relatively easy) but to be invisible when I'm upset or disgusted.

Oh boy. Sounds rather typical for some people in my family to type "new password" and look for the "any" key. Generally the older ones, but others, too. I must admit to not understanding the "illegal opperation" thing either. I could be working on a compleatly legal picture in paint that was scaned in from a drawing, and my old one would come up with that. You've really shown the frustration of someone who has to deal with ideots like us. Cool story, going straight to my favorites.

other than some thens needing to be thans, great story. It is sad that nobody would see him as a hero even after chosing to do a thing like that for her. You're all too right about people's biased views not changing whether it was easy or hard.

Author's Response: Kav can be a hard voice to find sometimes, but I enjoy writing him. Glad you liked! :)

I wonder if somebody would send him a poinsetta around Christmass time for him to fuss with in his quarters (if it survived the trip first of all). It would be such an endearing thing to see after reading this.
