McKay's eye grew wide. "Literally, naked?" he asked. "You mean symbolic nudity, right? Like, you know—body stockings? Interpretive dance?"

Everyone tells him time—time will heal him, time will take care of everything—but he doesn't believe that.

you have such a delicate touch that makes this admittedly a sad story but also a very beautiful one. I felt the emptiness and weariness of Rodney's grief and sighed with relief at the ending. Brilliant!
Rodney keeps... noticing things.

Devasting because what you've imagined is so plausible. Very skillfuly and soulfully written. thank you.
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad to know it moved you!
Summary: The key slides smoothly into the lock and the clasp clicks open, the supple leather strap falling away. Rodney takes a bite of pastry, ignores the ritual warning to those who seek to wrongfully reveal the secrets contained in these sacred pages, and flips to the first page.
Aliens very strongly hint that they should do it.

Beautiful rhythm to this story and elegaic language. Gorgeous and stunning, you are SO GOOD.
It was going to take more than a pair of ruby slippers to get them home this time. It was going to take all his ingenuity, a lot of careful plotting and some of John's infamous luck...

you were brave to write this but it's so good to read something like this that gives such a realistic alternative view. Great, thanks.
Author's Response: Thank you. I wasn\'t sure it would be well received. Glad you liked it!
When John receives an unexpected legacy he heads back to Earth, taking Rodney with him. While there he must deal with some old ghosts, Rodney's love of brownies and a life-changing discovery. There may also be a moose and an alligator but they're completely incidental. (Written for the 'McShep Happyfic Challenge'.)

He looked away, out over the black water emblazoned with two silvery stripes that stretched their way toward the pier. He concentrated on that shimmering light as more images started to pour forth.

Yup, that's just what I thought when I saw that final cut away shot. That hand jus snaking nearer. Great.
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I think more a move of possession than anything else - just wanting to be close - because I don\'t think John would take advantage of Rodney under those circumstances.

Perfect, satisfying, tightly written story that wastes nothing and impresses technically and engages emotionally. You do the masking of plot details so well, the John a.i. is so well done. thank you for yet another story that is going straight into my favourites section.
Author's Response: Your FB has sort of left me speechless with pleasure--thank you!
Five firsts that chart the changes in John & Rodney's relationship from first meeting to friendship, to something more.

So beautifully written you have a great understanding of who they really are. thank you.

Rodney had once overheard a group of Marines debating the likelihood of coming across a world with dinosaurs or, at least, very large reptiles on it.

Author's Response: Lol! I hope that\'s a good thing! Thanks for reviewing.
For all that Rodney wears everything he feels right there on his face, he's strangely reticent about things that actually matter, damn him. (Spoilers up to season 5: The Daedelus Variations)

You are really on a roll at the moment, great story after great story. you really get the dialogue just right loved it.
Atlantis is still in San Francisco Bay. Rodney and Jennifer get engaed. Rodney and John are the most clueless men on the face of this Earth.

I just realised I havent actually reviewed this even though it's one of my all time favourite stories. There's something so perfect, so right about this; as if this is exactly how it was. Your John is so credible and you capture Rodney's need for normality so well. Thank you.
Author's Response: Thanks! I wasn\'t sure I could make the concept work (as obviously it could easily slide into the most crackiest of crack). I see Rodney that way as well. Sure, he\'s so happy being a genius, but the flip side of all those smarts is that he\'s somewhat on an island intellectually and emotionally. Anyway, glad you enjoyed!
Summary: In nature there is no evil, only an abundance of horror.
Updated: 05 Jan 2011; Published: 05 Jan 2011
This is a skilful story, leading us from the happy go lucky to the depth of darkness, and all done with such a sure hand. I really felt the horror build and didnt see the payoff coming at all. Poignant and affecting, this is going straight on my favourites lists.
On Ljósver, Need gifts may be small in the beginning, but grow. Sequel to but the nights are better (out here)
