Very sweet, but with just enough snark to prevent sugar overdose.

I was really hoping there would be more of this AU after reading "Cupid's Victim", but I admit I would have prefered a wedding.

Powerful.

Author's Response: A wedding isn\'t completely out of the picture for the future!

Scary in so many ways. Very well put together.

I laughed so hard it hurt.

I would ask for more, but I can't imagine how you could top this.

Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: AU from the end of Conversion. Sheppard doesn't get immediately cured and even when he does, still has some of the abilities he had acquired. He's also still blue. How does this impact Atlantis and the events that follow?

Always thought John could be good in blue. Your description is tantalizing.

How much does he understand?

Great discussion, loved the set up and finding a way to let John know what is going on and what everyone's viewpoint is from a safe distance.

Not liking the Kate more than usual.

Its so easy to be mean when you're scared isn't it.

Blue would probably fit in better in the Milky Way, but what now. I don't expect perfect but I would like a happy ending. Thanks.

Never really gave much thought to the idea of John/Carson. This story was a fascinating read and made me realize I really need to reconsider the SGA options.

Delicious AU. Rodney and John are perfect. And your O'Neill and Zelenka are pretty darn good too.

How does the saying go... "you may find that the having is not after all so pleasing a thing as the wanting?" Poor Rodney, the place of his dream and its all falling apart.

Chapter 4: Chapter 4

Summary: Rodney McKay, many would agree, was not a very nice man. It was not that he intended to be harmful or rude to anyone, or that he meant to send new students scurrying away in tears, Rodney was just blunt - and perhaps a bit dense socially. And he didn't tolerate failure.

Some confusion to start with in relationship to each pack member's various names. While most people do have more than one – formal, informal, nickname, etc – listing each as you go is a little distracting when you are trying to establish the story and characters. And more so when everybody has an extra name or hasn't been given on except Weir and John. Alphas keep their main name or do they just go by Alpha once they reach that position? Lack of clarity just adds to that confusion. Waiting until making introductions with a pack outsider or newbie might be a better time to introduce the concept.

Missing details : What kind of place allows a second in command each winter off, and why? Even if Rodney is in charge and can make his own rules, the story makes it obvious he is frustrated with Zelenkas absence. From a story perspective it makes sense to have him absent because Rodney would have depended more on him instead of bonding with Sheppard, but it still needs to be explained believably within the story itself.

Why didn't Rodney dare eat dinner, especially as he is running his own company? Is the cafeteria just a lease in a large building that Rodney rents? The description given would seem to preclude that. With an AU its not possible to assume we can guess accurately based on the show.

Once past those concerns, the story is pretty good. The dialog and behaviors true to the characters.

Author's Response: Sorry about the confusion with the names. ^^; I actually considered cutting them out entirely, but I did have a use that I was going to put them through. It didn\'t actually make it that far in this story (and, actually, not everyone really needs one), but I\'m planning on getting around to sorting it out in the next. I may actually go back and take them out still, if they remain too confusing.\r\nIt all made sense in my head (which is a sad place to be, by the way), but yeah - the idea is that a pack leader is simply \"Alpha\" to everyone, and goes by his/her given name only with outsiders or those close to him/her.\r\n\r\nAnother point that did exist in my head, but didn\'t quite make it into the story. (Which you are being so helpful about, too. :) Thanks so much!) As soon as possible, I\'ll try to work it in, but I\'ll go ahead and explain it here so it makes sense to you. It\'s not so much that Rodney *allows* Zelenka the time off as Zelenka demands it; Zelenka has no actual need to work, and can quit whenever he feels he needs to, and because of that Rodney allows him certain things. He\'s not happy about it, but he\'ll take whatever he can get because he likes Zelenka, and Zelenka\'s smart.\r\n\r\n>>Why didn\'t Rodney dare eat dinner, especially as he is running his own company?\r\n\r\n*has to think back* You mean...the first time we see Rodney? He hadn\'t earlier because he simply doesn\'t like the cafeteria food, and thought he would be home in time to get food himself. By the time he\'s leaving, the cafeteria\'s closed. ^^; Rather simplistic, yes, but that\'s the way it worked in my head.\r\n\r\n>>Is the cafeteria just a lease in a large building that Rodney rents? The description given would seem to preclude that. \r\n\r\nYes.\r\n\r\n\r\nAnd thanks so much for taking the time to point all this stuff out! :) *gives big hugs* I\'ll try to go back and edit things asap - once I get a more solid idea of where the sequel is going.

I would like to see Daniel / Ronon some day. Partly – and I know I'm sticking my neck out – because I really don't like Jack / Daniel.

He ran away from - okay that's cute. Glowy sex talk also cute.

The Daniel / Ronon dialog was wonderful – it really really made me sorry your muse altered the intended reality.

What a way to spoil an almost sorta moment.

A totally fun, feel good story with a happy ending - yay!

Fantastic installment in a wonderful series.

The dialogue just picked me up and swept me along. Reaching the end was almost painful.

From sweet to snarky and back, the interchanges between characters really highlights the affection and respect the Atlantian's have for John and Rodney, and their lack of same for Caldwell.
