Eep! You've built up a wonderful sense of suspense so far. Excellent use of descriptive prose to build your imagery without giving away anymore detail than might be seen with the naked eye.

I barely remember the ep. this forks from but it didn't really matter. This is so plausable with McKay as the Atlantis Expedition leader. If things had just gone a different way, it could've happened. I can't wait for the next part.

Author's Response: Thank you :)

OMG - you're shameless, aren't you? As Willy Wonka (or maybe Oscar Wilde) would say: The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last. I'd say 'I can't look', but that makes it very difficult to read.

Author's Response: Me? Shameless? I... Okay, yes I am. Hopefully you'll stay around for the next chapter ;-)

Rodney over-sharing... that's an understatement. His last couple of lines had me blinking (*blink* *blink*) See? I'd love to see a follow-up detailing which of the 17% of the men he feels would be "out in the cold" and worth ... ahem ... pursuing.

Author's Response: Well, he considers John out of his league, but if John doesn\'t hurry to pair up....

Nice story. I often wonder what the SGC would've done about the Atlantis expedition members that the core group left behind.

I can see Rodney's neighbor wanting to keep care of his cat. She would only have Zelenka's word that he was who he said he was, after all.

What happens to the cat (and Carson's turtles) when Zelenka returns to Atlantis?

Thank you for this glimpse into the lives of another Atlantis team. (We know there's gotta' be more than one.) I really liked how Lorne's team dynamic was more low-key than Sheppard's. Definitely a result of the personalities involved.

I applaud your choice of not having John do a spit take when he first heard what perplexed Rodney. This was a highly enjoyable story. Thank you for writing it.

Author's Response: Thank you for reading it! I think a spit-take would have been a bit much, and Rodney probably would have noticed ;).

This is such a sweet story and a delight to read. You kept the characters true. (Well, as much as they can be true in slash.) Without making the reader dig through the excessive angst or shmoop that can weigh a story down. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad the fic hit all the right notes for you!

I've really enjoyed these. Especially Elizabeth's observation of John's manipulation of Rodney. Of course, she can manipulate all of them so sweetly herself...

Author's Response: LOL!! Oh, I think they can all manipulate each other by ow - and probably know when they are being manipulated too!!! Glad you liked the stories. Thanks.

I'm with you and McKay. I don't get fishing and further more have no... "feel" for it. Every time I have ever attempted the sport I've lost my bait. Excellent characterizations. Carson never can resist a challenge. McKay provides him with plenty. I think you hit on the perfect level of fond exasperation Carson has for his friend.

Wow, I'd like to see some back story and see where this is going and... and... more. Lots more. You have more, right?

Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m afraid I didn\'t intend to write any more, but I had most of the backstory figured out, so I\'ll try and flesh it out into another story.

Hmm, intriguing. "M.H." Miko?
Nice glimpe of the tip of the iceberg for the story. Not that "ice" should be indicative of anything. :)

Yeah, it's bothered me for awhile now that they haven't followed up on the other Runner signals. 'Course, they have been rather busy...

Eva definitely a lucky cat.
Any plans to include an ATA positive feline in a future sequel? (I suppose that would be somewhat later than those already planned.)

"sibling-level evil"
Yep, pretty much sums up their relationship to me.
Makes you wonder just how much material Carson used from John for Rodney's ATA 'treatment' anyhow.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it! ^_^ John and Rodney always seemed to act like sibs to me, reminds me of a couple of friends I used to hang out with when I was a kid. *grin*
