I'm honoured to be your 100th review! this is that rare type of story that combines truth and beauty to produce a glorious and satisfying experience that you can enjoy without any prior knowledge of SGA. i dont think i've ever felt tearful because of a story before. Rodney and his understandable insequirities are NOT portrayed as weaknesses as some reviewers have said but give us a rounded portrait of a complex and contradictory man. and yes, I did shout at John, but I also understood his emotional shut down.
Anyway, thank you for this, a story to remember!!!

Just about perfect. I love all your stuff but this might just be my favourite. perfect characterisation, voices, I love the way you write the Mckays.
Chapter 1: Bridges

Summary: It made no sense that Rodney should want that particular penguin. John slid where Rodney preferred to walk, burning his energy like he might be missing something. John didn't squawk, he drawled, and he'd never shown any interest in the stars Rodney studied every night.

This is a beautifully written,and such a well structured story. You really understand Rodney, and the last paragraph is sublime.

Author's Response: Thank you! I think even in the best of circumstances, Rodney would be prone to a bit of floundering in a relationship; it\'s part of his charm :) Thanks for the feedback!

parrish and lorne really work dont they? and you really got Lorne's voice just perfectly. This is great, any chance of 'what happens next'?

Author's Response: Yes, I think they do work, and rewatching the beginning of Runner I can see how it all started *grin* No one can say they weren\'t close, LOL. Thank you very much for reading, and your kind feedback. I\'m afraid I\'m hopeless at the \'what happened next\' writing, sorry! Wish I could though...
