Summary: They may not have tried to hurt him intentionally, but their actions could not have cut deeper than by confirming his suspicions - he was tolerated because of the things he could do, but he had no real friends on Atlantis. When it had come time to prove otherwise, Rodney had stood alone against Greenwall.

With the sequel out, I had to go and re-read this. An afternoon well spend.

OMG NOES! Adding the last name could have been totally schoolgirl, but was deeply moving and romantic instead.

Oh man. Rodney's backstory had me squeeing in joy. Just imagine. Genius wizard, most gifted of his generation... and he just drops of the face of the Earth after graduating. I bet that might make some people real nervous, considering the last wizard who did that was Voldemort!

Author's Response: It\'s a Mac program called Comic Life. I edit the photos in Photoshop and them import them into the layout program.

You should consider vagueging up your summary, so it doesn't spoil the initial suprise. Because you really would have had me with the terminal cancer otherwise.

The cancer. Eek! What a horribly fitting way for Rodney to kill himself after all the radiation exposure he's had in real life! The psuedo chemo was a great find. The thought of Rodney imagining his own side effects was so fitting, because they have to be worse then anything real life could throw at him. I could go on and on, because there was nothing here I didn't love.

Author's Response: You make a really good point, but I was afraid of making it seem too much like an AU story--I really couldn\'t think of a way to \'suggest without revealing\'...will give it some more thought though. Glad you liked it!

Oh I love this! I enjoy the various aliens make them do it stories well enough, but I never really BOUGHT into it, because, when you get right down to it, it's ludicrous to think that so many people dependent on Gate trade (or at the very least used to it), would have such rigid, and often insane customs. Exposure to other cultures tends to make people less frigid, not more (when they have something to gain mind). But you totally sold me on it. It genuinly made sense and Teyla and Rodney were lovely.

Author's Response: Right there with you regarding the Pegasus people\'s side of AMTDI -- it\'s always seemed weird to me, but then, many Earth rituals are. & ;-) But then I thought, Hey, So, Presuming AMTDI Does exist.... And the rest is thisstory. Thanks for your feedback!

I don't buy that Rodney wasn't completely freaked out about being 'prepared', because, hello! Assault anyone?!?! But what the hell.

Author's Response: True, but he\'d had time to calm down once they left him alone, and Teyla had reassured him that he was going to be okay.

I really like your stories, but you have a tendency to give a little to much exposition.

For instance, Rodney going into such detail about why he doesn't have a lot of friends wasn't necesary and a little grating. We already know (or can guess) that Rodney doesn't like to let people get close. We also know he feels strongly about his friendship with Blair, even without reading the earlier fic. His actions tell us that quite clearly.

It's highly unlikely that someone who doesn't let anyone get close, would give so much about himself away. Less is more in this case. You only seem to be having this problem when it comes to Rodney. Probably because he's such a fun character, it becomes tempting to show all the layers.

Author's Response: Yeah, I wasn\'t entirely happy with those scenes, I wrote them some time ago and Jayne and I should probably have tightened them up. I might try to re-do them some day, but I have to be honest and say that this almost ended up in the not-finished and maybe-never-will-be pile as I in particular got so annoyed with it, so it might be a while before I consider looking at it again! Thank you for your comments though, and I\'m glad you like my stories despite this tendency of mine.

I know the 'threatening of the boyfriend' is a popular cliche, but do Americans really DO this? I wouldn't put it past them, cuz hello! Americans! Clearly bat shit insane! But it just always struck me as highly degrading. Like a girl doesn't have the judgment to decide who she dates and god forbid sleeps with!

But that aside, Rodney is so cool when he get's his evil geek on.

Author's Response: It\'s less about not trusting the woman\'s judgement and more about letting both parties know that there are people who care about the woman involved. Also, I think it\'s the only time when it\'s socially acceptable to threaten people, and threatening people is always fun, as Rodney well knows.

I didn't even realise it was you until I got to the rape scene *head desk*. You have a very characteristic style when it comes to writing sex ;).

I loved how you wrote the rape scenes. How Rodney was clearly not with the program even if the drugs did make him horny as hell. And through out it all there was John unable to pick up all the obvious clues with his enzyme addled mind. I'm not sure how they're going to deal when they get back to Atlantis.
