Iteration by MistoKitt [PG-13]
[Reviews - 11]

Summary: It looked ordinary enough to John, somewhat like a keychain used to lock and unlock car doors. John's fingers itched to touch it. To take it from Rodney and toss it into the vast ocean, so that he couldn't hit the buttons anymore. Which was odd, because John couldn't recall ever having seen it before, much less having seen Rodney hit any of the buttons.

Author's Response: Yeah, I almost didn\'t, the ending killed me to write, but not writing it would have been about a thousand times worse. I\'m glad it worked for you!

Second Best by Madison [NC-17]

Brilliant - well written, well plotted and just great. Although my heart does kinda hurt for the JS who died...

Author's Response: I really appreciate your review--you\'re right about \'JS prime\' there...hmmn, but now you have me thinking about a reverse story in which it is J that is looking for R because, well, Atlantis *needs* a Rodney. The logistics might be tricky but the plot bunny is out of the gate and running now...thanks!
