Oh, such a perfect ending. But, really, Mike Landon? Ha. Great story. Thanks for sharing. It is a favorite.

Author's Response: *grins* Thanks! I know adding in a guy who has a crush on Rodney seemed a bit strange so close to the end of the story, but I needed to use Landon to prove to John that Rodney really was committed to him and really didn't want anybody else and not because he couldn't have anybody else. I'm thrilled you enjoyed it and thanks for the kind feedback!
Chapter 13: Proving the Hypothesis

Happy endings are essential.

Author's Response: Thanks.
Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: A Regency era AU.

All Rodney McKay had thought he wanted was to be left alone with his theories and hypotheses. Being abducted and meeting the intriguing John Sheppard had put paid to that. Rodney understood his own desires rather better now, but society's laws and conventions opposed him and Sheppard was surely far out of his reach. Not to mention the complication of his mysterious abductor...

What fun! Rodney in peril and heroic John in a romantic rescue, even one that doesnt go exactly as either planned. You have the whole Regency thing going. (Ah, Colin Firth.)

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm really glad you're finding this fun (I had an awful lot of fun writing it).

Very Regency! You have the language and plot down pat, and the adaptation of the characters is just great. Thanks

Author's Response: Thank you! I love regency romances, I'm very pleased you think I caught the right flavour.

Thank you. These are things that so needed to be said. Carson is the perfect one to do it, too. This would make sense of Rodney saying that Carson was his best friend, if this had been included in the canon. Good to know that someone else is tired of the CSO of the expedition being a cartoon, rather than a member of the human race like the others. Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response: It does seem sometimes that people want Rodney to be perfect, that he isn't allowed to have faults and when they show, they make a huge deal out of it. The fact that he is flawed is what makes him an interesting character to me. And I do love a protective and angry Carson. Someone needed to call John (especially) on the way he treated Rodney and Carson stepped up to the plate. Thank you for letting me know you liked it and why.
Chapter 1: Eating His Unhappiness

Summary: Beginning where Grace Under Pressure ends, John tries to come to terms with his feelings for Rodney amidst sabotage, attempted murder and altered states of mind. It's just another ordinary day in the Pegasus Galaxy.

Chapter 21: Truth Will Out

Summary: 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 is a good take on how a very lonely child would have been able to find some much needed comfort. Whatever his was like, Rodney's childhood was not spent learning how to get along with others. Very poignant. Thanks.

Author's Response: Glad you thought it was good. And no, he didn't learn how to get along with others, did he?! Thanks for the review.

Very cute and witty story, hard to believe it's your first. Good characterizations. I would raise the rating a notch, as there is a brief sex scene. If I were editing, I would cut the last line, as it implies that your readers can't draw their own conclusion. I'll be looking forward to more of your work. Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response: hi, thanks for commenting, glad you liked it. i wasn't sure about the rating myself, i orignially had it at R but had lowered it, but i do agree with you so i've gone back and changed it. i've got two more fics posted on my LJ but haven't had time to post here just yet! thanks again for taking the time to comment :-)
