Okee... let's give this another go.

I haven't seen season 5 yet, but I hear there's some things that need fixing.

*bows* Thanky, thanky, Miso!! I'd love to give you the [censored] bits, but due to a recent bout of Ascension that's been going around the office, I can't quite recall exactly what happened... ;) I like the 'Dr. Twice-nightly' thing... might have to work that in somewhere... and Bond? Did someone say Bond? ;) *whistles and wanders off*

It's your fault because *you* asked vaguely for 'Bond'... that simple request spawned most of that article... I'll admit though, that your seed had a bit of help... :) As for more Glowy Squid Porn, email me at cynical_coat@care2.com and I'll see if I can send you Ellex's fic by that title, and my own sequel to said fic (once it's done, that is... '^_^)

You know, I was going to apologize again for leaving you in the lurch, so-to-speak, but you did a fine job. And by 'fine' I mean wonderful and hot and damn inventive. You clean up real nice, Lex.

Oh my god... o__o Poor Rodney. You just made me hate Lucius, which is no mean feat... *thinks about writing a response fic to this*

Author's Response: LOL. I\'d say sorry...but I\'m really not :) There are a lot of people requesting a follow through with this story so if you want to take a stab at it (because lord knows when I will) then please be my guest! I have but one request: Make it at least 4500 words. Anything less just doesn\'t feel like it will be enough :) If you do write a continuation then let me know, because I would love to read it! :)\r\n\r\nCheers!

Author's Response: please do :) In the future I may take a stab at it as well, but as far as I\'m concerned the more the merrier...oh poor Rodney. He\'s not going to get any breaks :) Let me know when you\'re finished because I would love to read it.\r\n\r\ncheers.

o__O Wow. That was crazy good. When I read the summary I was expecting like... a year. Not thirteen. Wow.

Author's Response: Hee hee, yeah people were shocked about the large time jumps. I based it on the Colombia hostage crisis, and unfortunately, the families of those hostages have had to learn to live with the same kind of time frames that Rodney did. I wanted to make it as realistic as possible, so I made the time gaps larger and larger. I\'m so thrilled you enjoyed it!
Chapter 1: Cycles

Summary: Pretty much what the title says. No spoilers. A million thanks to Neevebrody and Velocitygrass for being such wonderful betas. They made great suggestions and caught some truly bad errors. Any remaining weirdness is completely my own.

"Four?" John mock protested. "Now who's coming up with arbitrary numbers? Alien rituals do not mean that you get to change the parameters of our relationship by a factor of two." *cackles* Very nice.

Author's Response: Yay. I\'m so glad you liked it, thanks for letting me know. It\'s so cool when stuff you write works.
