When Earth became indifferent to them, Atlantis and the people who loved her looked for ways to make things work. And then Earth tried to change the rules.
Thanks to Miriel and Nei'chan for help and beta services.

Just found this story - good.
Starvation of any kind is an ugly death. And its so possible with politcal agendas changing the way they do.
Kinda scary when Rodney's lack of social skills is not the ugliest people issue. And when Caldwell is the cavalry for anything other than a military situation?
The clones are a nice touch.
Sounds like great plans – hope they make it through the first encounter with the enemy.
Chapter 2: Chapter 2 - Planning
The character voices are so good. It makes the quiet Rodney especially intense, and highlights the seriousness of the situation.
Dessert lightens the tension - nice touch.
Chapter 3: Chapter 3 - Let's Have A Dinner Meeting
Great job providing background for the clones, and establishing their personalities in an interesting to read way.
Chapter 4: Chapter 4 - Settling In
Sharp and scary.
If / when you have a minute and can make changes - In the second section of the chapter - 2nd paragraph when Jack is explaining his existence 'rouge' Asgard should be rogue. 3rd: on 'or' progenitors should be our. 6th: Jacks' old second should be Jack's. In a story as well put together and written as this one the errors are more disruptive than they would be in another story.
Was the energy issue strictly US based or part of a global change?
Author's Response: Thanks for the heads up on the goofs. I am slowly going back through the whole story & fixing all that I see.\r\n\r\nAs for the energy issue... If you are a friend and ally (or on the IOA) you are getting the benefit of the ZPM. Which has a ripple effect through out the global economy.
Chapter 5: Chapter 5 - News - O'Neill Style
The whole political mess is kinda daunting.
The amount of information you were able to impart, in a fairly small space, was amazing. The way you used the personal references and asides, and switched the individuals being addressed really made the reading exciting and built anticipation. Not an easy task - kudos.
Author's Response: Thank you
Chapter 6: Chapter 6 - News ala Jackson
While on the surface it is apparent that the desire to stay in Pegasus is necessary in order to have a story, I like the way you convey the deeper wants and needs of the main characters. It is very clear that they all regard Atlantis as home and their plotting even before knowing about the political situation on Earth was about more than refusing to let an unpopular 'project' diminish into nothing. Their emotional investment in their home and lives really comes through.
Chapter 7: Chapter 7 -Discussing The World
As much as I want to know what happens next I really don't want this to be over anytime soon.
Fantastic story, with wonderful writting, but you really need to work on your summary skills. The one you have really doesn't even come close to expressing the complexity of your work.
One day a lot of people are going to kick themselves for waiting to read the story until it was complete because even if you never wrote another word the journey so far has been worth it.
Author's Response: The summary was put up when this began. And both the story and I have changed since it started. So when I finish, I will make sure to correct that issue. And thank you for the compliment! I have had an absolute blast writing this story!
Chapter 21: Chapter 21 – Waking To A New Day
Rodney gets bad news about Jonas when SG-1 comes to the Pegasus Galaxy
Updated: 18 Jun 2007; Published: 08 Feb 2007
I always felt sorry for Jonas, and for Corin Nemec. I like the pairing as you've envisioned it. The actions, and motivations of each character are well thought out and presented.
Hopefully Jonas can make it to Pegasus. Can't wait to see what happens.
Rodney wakes up to an unexpected morning after. Crossover with BtVS. Rodney/Xander.
Updated: 19 Feb 2007; Published: 17 Feb 2007
I love this story, on all the sites. My favorite of yours is still Lex/Xander, but your Rodney/Xander is funny, smart, and oh so delicious.
Rodney's in charge of Atlantis and not happy about it.
Updated: 11 Jul 2007; Published: 21 Feb 2007
Great mix. Love what you've done with the lineup.
The glimpses of the developing relationship - friendship and romance - between Rodney and John are fantastic. The bits of other folks, especially Miko and Bates really do a wonderful job supporting the original pairing.
Would love to see more of this someday.
Chapter 10: Remedial Leadership - Lesson 7
The Atlantis Corporation has something he wants, which leads to an unforgettable journey of betrayal and new discoveries, but he may just find something he not only needs but unfounded instead. (Mild NC-17)

AU's can be so much fun, and this one looks like its gonna be exciting.
Drama other than DADT, and my favorite flavor of Rodney - Confident, assertive, and sexy as all get out. And John's looking good too!
Author's Response: Hope you enjoy the story. :>)
John needs to get some. And soon.
Updated: 27 Apr 2007; Published: 23 Apr 2007
John's musings about life, dominance, and sex toys was hysterical and really set the rest of the story up so well. Crazy fun and I laughed all the way through.
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
Ronon isn't inclined to open up to anyone, but maybe he just needs to find a kindred soul. Maybe a reluctant friendship could make all the difference in healing his broken heart.

Interesting set up.
That Air Force - they're always so selfish with any thing that looks like it might be fun.
Author's Response: lol Yeah a bit.
Emotionally intense for everyone.
The switching point of view really worked well in this chapter.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked that.
Three semi-intelligent Air Force Lieutenant Colonels in the room, and he got stuck with the one who had most recently tried to kill him.

They had all survived the attack and relocation, hadn't they? Sheppard finds that one loss is that one too many
Updated: 10 Jul 2007; Published: 14 May 2007
Ellis hasn't made too many friends at SGA, and even when I try to remember thats just the way the character is being written - it doesn't help. Nice job making it work.
Parrish comfort scene is nicely written, and the end scene leaves a bitter taste because we know what Lorne doesn't about the search efforts.
Chapter 1: Manifestation of Loss
Well done - but oh so painful in so many ways.
Chapter 2: Manifestation of Phantoms
A new doctor and an IOC observer with a camera make John's already awkward feelings for Rodney even harder to hide.

Your Em is an intriguing character and something of a chameleon. She gives great presents.
