Oh, don't even tempt me like that! You finish an amazing story complete with all of the fluffy mushy stuff that I'm such a sucker for and then you say that you may continue it...

It isn't nice to tease.

It *would* be great to see John's conversation with Teyla and Ronon though. :)

[Reviews - 4]

Summary: But that still didn't negate the fact that his reasons were still there. Carved into him. A constant reminder that he wasn't good enough. That he'd never be good enough. 5/3

Dun dun DUN!! Holy Whombats singing in the shower! *That* was a heck of an update! Rodney's 'non-mysterious' sender is really trying to be open with himself here. Wow...

This continues to keep me waiting in anticipation for the next chapter. Thanks so much! :)

Author's Response: No, thank you! I\'m glad you like it so much!

Yea! I was spot on! I love it when that happens...just like I love John's sweat pants. ;)

Of course, you had me doubting myself a couple of times. Chapter 4 had me wondering for a moment...

I just love this so much! It's so different from most other things that I have read. I can't wait for more! :)

Author's Response: I\'m glad I could keep you on your toes and I\'m glad that you like it! Thanks!

Treading Water by Reflex [PG-13]

Yay! Still here! *waves*

I want to *strangle* the chick that said bad things about Rodney! Sooo uncalled for!
However, I must cheer for the guy who defended him. Yay Marlow!

I feel bad not only for Rodney, though. I feel bad for John as well, thinking that it was his fault.

I can wait for more fun to commence! :)

Author's Response: Waves back! Glad your still here! You are absolutly right, the women is just mean. Hopefully McKay won\'t have to deal with too much of that attitude. Maybe we should have John send Ronon after them... :D

Rodney with gills...I find that most interesting. Of course, now I have all kinds of questions that *must* be answered. (hint, hint)

Yay! A new chapter!

I feel so bad for Rodney. He probably thinks that his friends are going to abandon him in some way even though they obviously aren't.

I love how you had Ronon sticking up for him. You made him the voice of emotional reason and that made me so happy!

As for your end notes...Are you kidding?! No, I don't have a problem with all of these new and exciting factors in Rodney's life! They make for an interesting and original read.

I can't wait for your next update! :)

Author's Response: THanks! lol, I\'m very glad your enjoyiung it so far! Ronon is a great character, and if you like him now you\'ll like him even more later :)

Yay times!! I saw that this was updated and I couldn't help but squee! This continues to hold my attention and continues to have me waiting on the edge of my seat for more updates.

I love that you had Rodney all confused and thrown off at the people who thanked him in the mess. It was so great! I read that part and I couldn't help but melt into a big, sappy puddle!

Thank you so much for this delightful story!

Author's Response: You are most welcome! The fact that yourself and others are enjoying it so much makes it so much more rewarding to write!

Wow...just wow. That was so interesting! I loved learning about how Rodney's body is able to sustain gills and how he is able to use them. It was facinating!

I can't wait to learn more!

Author's Response: Thanks! I am always glad to get a \'wow!\' It makes my face hurt from smiling.

Oh gosh!! I do hope that Rodney will be okay...

I am so glad that Rodney finally is coming to realize that he a *real* family on Atlantis and not one that will willingly hurt him.

This is so fantastic! :)

Author's Response: Well thank you very much!! My face hurts from grinning.

While I am sad that this particular story is over, I am quite glad that you have decided to make this into a series. I absolutely agree with you that there are way too many questions that need answering.

This chapter was amazing. The scene between Ronon and Rodney was priceless and having Dr. Parrish witness Rodney's fall from the balcony was hilarious! Having Rodney hand Ronon the red bandana had me squeeing in delight...I quite embarrassed myself. :)

You had an original subject here and it was so refreshing to see how well this was done. It could have been cheesy or just plain bad, but you pulled this off nicely...way to go!!!

Looking forward to more of this series!! :))

Author's Response: yay! I got a squee! :D lol. Thank you very much for the wonderful comments! The last scene between Ronon and Rodney was a pleasure to write, and I\'ll admit that the red bandana part is one of my favourite moments in the story, so I\'m thrilled it went over well :)\r\n\r\nI very glad you\'re looking forward to more of this series, I only hope the future fics will entertain everyone as much as this one :)\r\n\r\nThanks again!

Whoa, this was so great!

I loved Cadman's response to what it was like sharing Rodney's body. 'I mean, the whole time I was in there...well, the best I can come up with is that it was like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.' I laughed so hard!
But, I also loved how she said it was like when Rodney figured out the solution, too.

What am I saying! I just loved all of this! Especially John's personal score for Rodney. :)

This was so beautiful and sad. The last part of the last sentence was very poignant for me. 'Atlantis was quiet.'

Not only did it create such a stunning visual and emotional picture for me, it also made me realise that one of the similarities that Atlantis and Rodney share is the fact that both of them are always busy, active. But when Rodney became 'quiet', so did Atlantis...

*So* well done.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you. *blush* I\'m glad you liked it.
