Oh, Wow. I love this.
Any chance it's related to Medie's McKay's Symphony of Two in Ten? Because, I can totally see her McKay's happy world, being the sequel of a sorts to this one.

Because this is simply a perfect romp in the multiverse. It's a believable recast of McShep, of a world where The Cat can be one of the most dangerous creatures, and a little ivory can become the beatiful city.
Bravo! I'll be favoriting this!

*re-reads* *soundless handflapping as I cry*
I could swear I wrote a review... but, it didn't go through so, writing again, cause. Evil. Good, but totally evil. You make McKay's world, his moments with his husband so real, that you *wish* he would stay in a coma.
That he never has to wake up to loose his husband. To mourn him.


The only thing that would make it better is if he gets Sheppard in the real world. If he can make that small house with the duck pond into that small apartment with the balcony overlooking the south pier, it may all be worth it.

And I guess that's all. This is either a painful deathfic, or it's the most real and gritty romance.

Because, it's what happens when he next wakes, when he leaves that bed, that make this story either a painful loss, or a hard won delight.

And honestly, I think I like both answers. Because real life isn't always going to work out, but we all wish it would.

Sequel, Sequel, Sequel!
*chants and stomps* hee. No, really, this is an amazingly cool story.
My sister loathes Xander, due to the season 2 'betrayal', but this Xander, is one I can totally love.

You make McXan *work*. And that's saying something. *small laugh*
I so want to see Xander affecting McKay's worldviews, and how he has the best of all his girls in McKay. *grins*

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I\'ve come across several people who hate Xander for that very reason, but the Buffy-verse is rife with lies and betrayals and crimes that the characters don\'t have to answer for just because they\'re the heroes. *shrugs* Xander\'s lie at the end of season 2 never stood out to me as worse than anything else. (I really love my Scoobies, I just think there was a lot of bad going on a lot of the time.)\r\n\r\nAnd, as luck would have it, I\'m posting a sequel today. Yay!

*chuckles*
Okay, that's made of win.

Best part: [i]Sheppard smiles, kisses him one last time and draws back, leaving the candy on Rodney's tongue. Rodney finally opens his eyes.[/i]

That's. Well, it's perfect. It says so much, the delishious layers, with all the puns included.
Brava!

O_o I win. I made you write a sequel!! *coughs*
*hides*
*peeks out*
Okay, no I didn't, but I love this. Hehehe, more than him butchering the names though, he should give red and dead presidents a nickname...
I'd demand more sequel, but my ego couldn't take the bruising of not having my demands for more *now*. Nevermind that patience I demanded last week.

Altogether, a great read, and very touching in it's little quirks. *laughs* I can so see Shep's arms coming down and that slight choke he swallows down on as he's all but splashed in the face with that Dr. Pepper in place of his Coke.

Long live Geek Love!

Author's Response: Yes, I wrote the sequel just for you! *nose grows* Well, I was really happy when I saw your review asking for a sequel right when I had one to offer. \r\n\r\nThanks for your review!! I had fun with Rodney screwing up Willow and Kennedy\'s names, but in the long term, a nickname would make sense. And I loved John in that scene in the mess. I can see him being shocked by accepting, and them moving straight into the mockery. (Woo!)

Hehehe, cute.
*wants that in an episode so bad* Hey, if we can have the writer's crack of the week we can have some great OT4 team interaction of the cute side. Maybe some pre-credits moment.
Cause this is better than most of the scripts of late. Kudos for catching the team dynamics so well, and for nailing spot on the characters.
That last line, makes the whole fic that much better. *grins*

Author's Response: Oh, thanks so much! You\'ve pretty much made my week here! While the first line wasn\'t mine (it was the challenge line), the last line *was* so your comment about it just makes *me* grin. Thanks!
