Summary: This. This was something that needed taking care of. In a non-traditional sense.

Wow ... wow. This is one of the most beautiful, realistic, hopeful slash stories I've read in any fandom. The flashbacks, the progression, the violence and acceptance - it's just so good. And then the last little flashback came up and I almost cried. Gorgeous and wonderful and other adjectives that mean amazing. Thank you for sharing!

"Sheppard’s hand reached up to cup his face and Rodney was pretty sure this was what it felt like to be an ice cream." -- That line was so awesome I had to stop and re-read it. Extraordinarily descriptive and creative. Love this! The tentative flirting and discussion of lightsabers and the dancing ... Fun, fun story.

What fun! There is something about the Mr. Men books that's just irresistible. I wrote a series of BtVS stories based on them myself, so I had a feeling of "Great minds think alike," when I saw this here. Zelenka is great in this, btw.

Author's Response: There is something about the Mr Men books that are timeless and crosses all boundaries :)
Chapter 1: 1 of 1

Summary: Teddy bears, self esteem, and mad scientists (but no fricking laser beams!) But it is slash!

This was, as I expected, awesome. You guys do a great job of maintaining a level of intensity and action that is fairly astounding in a series this long. I was actually getting tense, wondering how Rodney was going to defeat Radek and Teddy Ruxpin.

The section from from Rodney's POV early on - the one comparing John to German Chocolate cake and talking about John's delusion that deep down, everyone really loves Rodney - is going to stay with me for a long time. It was fun and funny, but it also sketched their relationship out for me just perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

I saw this and almost didn't read it, because the last part I had read was John ending it with Rodney and it just hurt in such a real way. I jumped in and read the story, though, and I'm so glad I did. I love the care you took with the various reactions to the gender-switch. I know these stories are usually crack, and I don't fault authors for glossing over the deeper implications, but the way you addressed them (positive and negative) was powerful. This story is still painful in many places, but it's gorgeous, and I'm so glad you shared it.
