This was a really terrific story! I've been working my way throught the archives alphabetically and can't tell you how pleased I am to find such a great story as I near the end of my reading list. Just right!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! And wow for working your way through the archive. I\'m not sure how I could manage that...
Missing scene from "The Return, Part One". Rodney's never keen on having people hang up on him, but he's especially disgruntled when it's John.

This is a lovely piece. You convey so much with just a few words. "The sun came out in his tone, winter changing to languid summer in the bare space of two sentences." That is sheer brilliance and I take my hat off to you!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the lovely feedback! I\'m quite pleased to hear that you liked this so well!

okay, the line about Rodney calling 'dibs' on Weir nearly slayed me. A good thing I wasn't sipping coffee at the time or I would have sprayed the keyboard...
Author's Response: And you\'d think he\'d call dibs on Teyla, but I guess Rodney prizes intelligence and, um, open-mindedness.\r\n\r\n(Whee! Everyone who reviewed quoted a different line. This is a very good sign.)
Chapter 1: Breeding Ground
It was a refuge of sorts. The one place in the city where he didn't have to pretend that everything was going to be all right. The one place where he could let the hollow ache that constantly sat in his chest expand to fully eclipse him.

This was a really cool premise as well as a nice character study on both John and Rodney. A nice twist on Epiphany as well. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks very much =)

This story cracked me up! I mean, it's not like we ALL have not thought it from time to time...
Author's Response: *g* Yeah, I'm sure everyone on Atlantis has kicked out Rodney's ass at least once :)
Chapter 1: Five things Rodney heard
His balcony was hidden in shadows and he drank in the silence, the simple beauty of the star filled sky above him.

You make a very good point here and do it with understated elegance as well. Where the heck were they anyway? No one thought to check on him? Poor Rodney...
Author's Response: Thank you :) I kept wondering that when they came through so happy and not at all worried about Rodney. :(
The evolution of John and Rodney's relationship seen through Teyla's eyes as she struggles with feelings of loss. Spoilers for Sunday.

Wow. I'm not sure, but I think this story broke my heart! Whew. Powerful stuff.
A new doctor and an IOC observer with a camera make John's already awkward feelings for Rodney even harder to hide.

I really liked this piece a lot! But then I have a thing about photographs, especially the idea of catching someone in an unguarded moment. Whew, those would be some pictures to see...
Author's Response: Thanks! And sometimes it\'s those unguarded moments that are the most important..... and, yup, them would be some *very* nice picture....

Sharing sleeping bags in the jumper. Hey, it's a classic!

Warm??? This was downright HOT. Whew (fanning self here)!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m so glad you enjoyed it!

Wow. This piece was incredibly well-done. Completely and utterly plausible and a touch devastating as well. Whew!
Rodney wants to regain the Colonel's trust, so he's going to help him get over that little mutating-into-a-bug problem.

This is one of my favorite stories and definitely worth reading more than once. I loved Rodney's POV, especially when he is trying to be a good friend and knowing this is not really his forte (his candid assesment of his personal kinks was well done too!). I really appreciate that for all his lack of social skills, Rodney really is observant when it matters to him and he is the one best able to help John in this situation. I loved the sneaky way John manipulated him into 'helping' further as well. Just a good, fun, hot, sexy story all around! Thanks for sharing with us.
Author's Response: Fun, hot, and sexy was exactly what I was going for. And a little bit of friendship reparation, as well -- they needed it, at this point in the season. Thanks for your review! (and so for taking so long to respond...)
Summary: "I'm sorry," John whispered, he pressed the barrel of the gun to Rodney's chest and fired.

I must admit, I was bracing myself for the worst when I read the opening line, but well done, well done. The *closing* line was awesome too...:-)
Author's Response: I deliberately didn\'t put this in the humour category because I was afraid it would \'spoil\' the story too much. Glad you liked it!
"Her hands glide over the broad expanse of Rodney's back, easy, strong and slick; warm, oiled skin under her fingers."

What a beautiful piece. I feel like my *complete* understanding of it is just shimmering on the edge of my ability to grasp it, but I like the imagery it evokes (and the idea that maybe I *do* get it) :-)
All you know is that if he were to stop now you might shrivel up and die from the lack.

This is a beatiful and powerful piece. It also rings very, very true and for people who chose to isolate themselves, I have no doubt that hanging on the verge like that is all sometimes they can commit to. I love the way that the fixation on Rodney's touch has somehow desensitized him to the touch of others. Really, well done. You should continue to write.
Rodney's been struck down by Ancient technology and only one thing can help him. Written for the Kissing Meme on LJ.

Oh what fun! Radek's 'seven dwarves' line nearly slayed me. And John's increasingly threatening entreaties were perfect!

Tag for the second season episode, "The Hive": what went through Rodney's mind when he thought Sheppard and the others were killed by the exploding Hive ships, or when he learned they were alive? And how did they react when they finally learned of his nearly overdosing on Wraith enzyme?

Thank you for addressing the fact that in the episode, they seemed to ignore Rodney once his recovery was confirmed in the infirmary. I'm sure they had to make decisions based on time regarding what they could chose to show or not, but the least the writer's could do was toss out a *sentence* regarding some concern about Rodney's whereabouts!
When Rodney learns John is attracted to him, he's determined to find a way around the rules.

I loved the way Rodney's inventive solution allowed the two of them to work out some issues in their developing relationship that they might never have addressed otherwise--or at least not without terminal failure! Didn't hurt either that the story was *very* hot. Whew! :-)
Summary: Rodney have brains.

My first thought was 'gosh, what have you been drinking and is there any left?' I was really fine at first. Really. Ok, sick and twisted yes, but funny. Had me snickering. Only now *I can't get it out of my mind* ARGH. It's like hearing Feliz Navidad over and over again. OMG, now I am hearing *that* too... :-0
Author's Response: I fell asleep making this up, actually. That night was one of the strangers ones, dream-wise. *coughs* Sorry I dragged you into it. ;)

When I reached the end of this piece, I let out the breath I did not know I was holding. Whew. That last line brought tears to my eyes (not an easy thing to do). I don't know what else to say. Hard to thank someone for breaking their heart, but well done just the same. Well done.
Author's Response: Thank you. This is one of those stories that just flows out without effort and I\'m very fond of it for that reason.
