This chapter was so sad - I kept wondering just what it would take for John to lose his insecurity about Rodney's feelings toward him. *sigh*

Author's Response: I wondered the same thing myself and then I thought how difficult it would really be to believe what someone says if they say the same thing over and over again but you just can't bring yourself to trust them. So I thought about bringing in an outsider in the form of someone who has a crush on Rodney and letting John see Rodney's commitment to him from another angle. I do have to say that their fight and making up was my favourite chapter to write :) No, I'm not evil...

“You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me, Rodney, and you’re the best thing that ever will happen to me. I don’t want or need anybody else. I’m just sorry it took me fifteen damn years to feel secure enough to ask.” Awwwww...finally! I think John gets it! "Rodney looked like he might start crying so John loudly cleared his throat and asked if it was okay that they used tags instead of rings. Everybody in the room gave him slightly amused looks, but nobody minded. Using the tags seemed more fitting than rings for the two of them." Loved this! Especially nice that you were able to make such good use of the tags after you found out that John would have been able to keep them.;) Again, I just loved every bit of this story. Thanks so much for sharing. *hugs*

Author's Response: Aw, thanks! Glad to hear it wasn't too sappy. And yes, John finally, finally gets it. I wasn't sure if people would like me using John's tags in such a way, but his tags have always been such an important part of his life that I wanted to use them to make a point. When he first came home, he had to leave that part of his life completely behind and readjust to his new life, but now, he found his balance between the old and the new. Thank you so much for taking the time to read the story and for letting me know that you liked it! That means an awful lot!

Great snippets of their life. Interesting to see them having to handle their students now being faced with having to go to war. Such bad memories for poor Rodney - and John seeing it from the opposite perspective...nicely done.

Author's Response: Yeah, I wanted to make sure I included a couple of scenes where John has to deal with seeing war from the other side of the coin and experiencing what Rodney had to go through. Life and the rest of the world still kept going, even if John was confined to a wheelchair and on a university campus, and I wanted to make sure that John realized that.
Chapter 12: Other Side of the Coin

Summary: Rodney doesn't like hairy guys, and if this is going to be a...thing, John's going to have to do something about it.

John wants to say, "I thought you said you don't like rimming," but all that comes out is a strangled moan, and John's pretty sure the shaving was worth it for this.

Umm...hell yes! And, yet, John is grumpy in the end. No pleasing some guys. Hee!

Author's Response: Thank you! :D

I love the way you tell this story, starting near the end and working forward and back and ending at the beginning. Nicely done - or...it worked for me, anyway. :) The whole Cam/Rodney...oh yes...works for me like crazy! As a diehard John/Rodney girl, I'm almost embarrassed to admit to my two *Rodney pairing anomalies*. *sigh* Especially since they're both so intense, and, yes, one is with Cameron. The other is with Ronon. *blushes* John is only ever allowed to be with Rodney, though. Hee! I can only hope that you'll continue to feed my Rodney/Cam needs...I know there is at least one follow-up to the fic. *eyes you pleadingly*

Summary: The SGC and the SGA crews weren't rivals, exactly, more like siblings who competed over everything. Including the jello.

Of course, if Sheppard was honing in on Cameron's territory then it would mean war of a kind that only two highly trained military officers could engage in. There would probably be paperclip missiles involved.
Eeps! That's it, Cam...defend your territory! I just love the way you write Rodney/Cam. I love that he is so attracted to what many would consider Rodney's worst qualities. That always works for me, no matter who Rodney is paired with. :) (Although, for me, that list of acceptable pairings is quite small!) Thanks so much, and I hope you have it in your heart to re-visit this little series. *g*

I love Rodney when he's insecure about his abilities...hee. Of course it was mind-blowing - hence John's inability to talk. *nods firmly*

Author's Response: *agrees with you* :) :) There\'s more to it than that, of course, but Rodney *was* quite good at what he was doing. :)
Chapter 1: Give Me A Moment

Summary: John and Rodney are asked to participate in a ritual that puts John in a strange-looking chair and Rodney on his knees in front of him. Prequel to Give Me A Moment, but a bit more serious than that one (albeit still with banter).

Hmmm...I should have read this before trying to give fb on the other. :( This is really intense...no wonderJohn needs time before he'll talk about it. Although...Rodney *was* good. I knew it. :)

Author's Response: Hee hee hee! John does need more time, and \"aliens made them do it\" seems to have been awkward for both boys... but they\'ll sort through this one. :) Thanks for reading!

as though laughter was a vehicle that had not been started in some time.

Love that line, and they did get him to laugh. All good. :D

"John." His voice was anguished and a part of him could not believe he was not hiding behind biting sarcasm for once. "I can't... I can't go through that again...not...please, just promise me...?"

Oh...ouch. *pets poor Rodney*

A tiny part of his brain suggested that maybe an injured John was different. That if the injuries were permanent, he might somehow be more...accessible. A wave of self-loathing swept over him; he felt literally nauseated. You always were a selfish bastard, McKay. He closed his eyes tightly against the physical pain in his head and the wound in his heart. Of course he would rather have John whole, healthy and with someone else, than crippled and dependent on him.

No, no, no...Rodney would never wish something like this on John. He's just tired and hurt, and I don't think he's eaten...oh dear...such angst. I love that the aliens were basically just being cautious, and I love that they healed John...thank goodness, really. You write such lovely, long stories...thank-you. :)

Author's Response: And head trauma! Let\'s not forget that too! :-) I\'m so glad that you liked it and that it didn\'t seem too long (they just keep expanding on me no matter what I have in mind when I start out...)Thank you for your really thoughtful review!

He was almost undone by the way Rodney closed his eyes at the contact and tilted his head into John's touch.

Ooohhh, lovely. *sigh*

Rodney flicked a glance at his laptop before looking back at John, his blue eyes blazing like beacons on the shoreline. This way—this way home. He licked his lips unconsciously and the action resonated with a little shiver in the lower portion of John's spine as he watched.

Beacons! Oh my...yes. *beams* Thank-you so much for writing such lovely, long McShep. *hugs*

Oh, this was just wonderful - I really, really enjoyed the read. I love it that Atlantis worked with John and helped him, through their connection, while he couldn't see, but I love that you fixed John in the end. Spitting fish...sheesh. He really should have listened to Rodney, stubborn man.
Thank-you for bringing them together, and thanks for your hard work.
