Reviews by Joolz

Summary: Rodney stared openly as John turned back in his direction, leaned out a long, tanned arm and snagged some of Rodney's fries. He dropped them into his mouth when he leaned back, exposing a long line of throat that Rodney suddenly found very compelling. Rodney even forgot to protest about the theft of his food.

Very nice storytelling. I particularly liked Rodney in these stories - his usual neurotic self, but noticably strong, too. Thanks for the great adventures.

Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I really spend a lot of time agonizing over getting my characters to sound like the "real" ones. I love to hear that I succeeded.

Lovely. The word 'poignant' doesn't quite do it justice. I love how John sees them both as the same person. Thanks

I love this story! It was scary and touching and even romantic. Poor Shep and his grandma- she doesn't understand! And I liked how Rodney's ghosts were nice to him. And how Teyla and Ronon dealt with theirs. Realy unique, interesting story, and well written. Thanks!

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :D

Very nice first time fic. I especially liked that they actually talked about what was going on between them, and then took it slow - as opposed to the usual 'one slams the other against a wall one paragraph and they're having penetrative sex the next' formula. ;) They're building a nice foundation for their relationship. Thanks!

Author's Response: Hi. Thanks so much. I'm so glad you liked the slow build. I, too, find the wall slamming and penetrative sex next formula a little too fast for my tastes sometimes. Thanks again. Cheers.

Kavanaugh and McKay, scary! But oddly believable under the circumstances. Just the kind of mistake a person might make. And Kavanaugh was in character as his disgusting self, and he Stole Rodney's Gun! You're reinforcing my Kavanaugh dislike. Thanks!

Author's Response: I was feeling in a mean mood towards Kav... and Rodney too :-) Still, at least John sorted out the Kav problem.

Fun story! I loved everyone's reactions to John and Rodney's fighting. And this: "Men. It didn't matter what galaxy they came from, they were all from another planet as far as she could tell." The best line ever! Thanks

Author's Response: I keep telling people it was fun to write and it was, but now that I think about it I was also tearing my hair out worrying about getting it done in time to submit before I went internetless during Christmas. It's a wonder it isn't really hurried and jerky. I just know Teyla gets sick of the macho posturing from the guys on the team - especially since she can kick all of their asses!

I waited until this was finished to read it, and am so glad it's finally done! What an interesting story idea, and so well developed. I particularly liked Rodney's slow breakdown and recovery - neither are likely to happen overnight. And I actually liked seeing some real conflict between the characters, which is realistic, if painful. Thanks very much!

Wow, very intense. I don't usually read much het ship, but I'm glad I read this one. You could just feel John's rigidity (no pun intended *g*) in trying to survive on his own terms. I'm glad he was able to 'wrap his mind around' what he had to do at the end and bend a bit. Doing Teyla - not exactly a fate worse than death! Thanks!

Very nice. All those rumours flying around, things could have turned out badly. But no, happy ending! Thanks

Author's Response: Always a happy ending with me - I don't think I've written a sad fan fic. Nope - I like the boys happy, even if they have to struggle to get there.
