Gulp. Wow. Really well done. (Speechless on this end).
He paints kohl around John's eyes.

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.
Rodney thinks it's time he got married. While Katie Brown is the obvious

"There would be endless slivers of used-to-be-John-Sheppard that no one would be able to put back together." I loved that line! Just gorgeous...
Author's Response: Thank you! One of my favorite too!

A beautiful and heartbreaking story--telling a side of things that most of us gloss over because we don't want it to be that way--and yet the truth just adds to the poignancy. well done!
Summary: John raised a single eyebrow. "Which is why we came to help in the first place. Or well, we came, we saw dusty plains, and you had a man-versus-nature victory."

Aw, that was sweet! And a nice nod to the whole team effort thing too. I also liked the way that J's epiphany came in a moment of quietness. Drenching rain is kinda hot too. Big smile here...
Author's Response: Thank you so much for this elaborate feedback -- made me smile in turn. & :-)
They woke up brand new.

I don't know what to say that others haven't already expressed, but I had to add my voice to the crowd. Wow. Amazing story, incredible idea, rich with detail and potent in its imagery. Defintely on my favorite list now!
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Rodney's injured & John isn't happy about it. Oh, and I have no idea where the sheep came from. Honestly.
Updated: 24 Sep 2007; Published: 24 Sep 2007
Terrific! I loved the sheep/sleep imagery and the woolly thoughts running through Rodney's mind while at the same time John's fear and anger came through with sharp clarity. Very well done!
Author's Response: Thank you! You\'re very kind. (The sheep just sort of wandered in & made themselves at home. Pesky sheep! *g*)

Aw, this is too freaking *perfect*. Characterization dead on, amazing visuals, the right play of emotions. Perfect. My hat is off to you. Sigh.
Author's Response: You are making me blush! :D
John never thought Rodney was Superman, not really.

Sometimes we need the lie in order to keep going. This was beautiful--would love to see more!
Author's Response: So true. Thank you, I\'m pleased you liked it.

As usual, you have the most amazing way with words--not only do you beautifully convey the scene (I can see it in crystal clear detail) but the voices of the characters are dead on. The summary paragraph where you describe the incidental details of what is happening in little asides is an understated gem and the 'silence' in Rodney's hands--that is just awesome. Perfect. Seriously.
Author's Response: Wow - thank you! It\'s such a slight piece that what you say seems very flattering! I have to admit that I love Rodney\'s hands and jumped at the chance to find a metaphor for describing them - I\'m glad it worked for you. Thanks again!
"Give me one good reason why we shouldn't have sex."
Updated: 16 Oct 2007; Published: 16 Oct 2007
Rodney's arguments for sex here are truly magnificent. How could John refuse? Oh yeah, right. He *didn't*. :-)
Updated: 16 Oct 2007; Published: 16 Oct 2007
I completely loved the dinosuar/big lizard scene--especially the way it ended on board the Daedalus with J praising R's initiative. The progression of the relationship through the subsequent scenes was terrific!
Author's Response: Thank you, I\'m so glad you enjoyed it!
They wake up to find themselves in a grey room. A plain, grey room with no windows or doors.

What an awesome and original story! The character study of both John and Rodney was amazing and the hook at the end was unreal. Kudos to you!
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad to know that their characterization was believable, and that the twist at the end worked.
Chapter 1: The Experiment

I had been wanting to re-read this story--I'm so glad you posted it here along with the epilogue. I really loved they way you depicted Rodney's demonstration to the kids and his relationship with John. Sweet!
Author's Response: It\'s such a sweet \'verse... *happy sigh* :) cep xxx

I recently heard an interview on the radio in which soldiers were asked exactly what they were fighting for in various parts of the world. They invariably answered 'their friends'. Thank you for reminding me of that with this excellent story--and for introducing me to another Wilfred Owen poem! Big grin here!
Author's Response: oh my goodness, thank you! since it was your fic that helped inspire this, that means a lot! yes, from everything i\'ve heard, or been told, it always seems to be friends which inspire soldiers (and it\'s something which i\'ve been hearing a lot lately with Rememberance Day coming up). Oh, always willing to introduce another war poem! (on a side note... have you read the poem \'High Flight\'? It was written by a WW2 pilot, and always leaves me feeling a bit choked up whenever i read it!)

Author's Response: :DD Thank you!
The epic tale of how John and Rodney fell in love and fell out of bed.
Updated: 11 Nov 2007; Published: 11 Nov 2007
OMG. This was absolutely *hysterical*. It doesn't help that I've been thinking exactly the same thing myself for a while now. What a riot! Thank you for all your hard work here!
Author's Response: Thanks so very much! And seriously, could they not find a bigger bed in the props department?

I really enjoyed this character study of Rodney and the thought processes going on in his mind! I also have a real weakness for 'the science turns Rodney on' stuff so my hat is off to you. Very well done!
