Student. (Astrophysics, which I feel gives me some cred in this fandom, even though I'm crap at it. Most of what Rodney does is engineering anyway.)
"On me, at least, it would be appropriate," Rodney said. "Crazy physics teacher, here. I *should* have hair that sticks out at all odd angles."

This is cute and funny. I like the domesticity of the pair of them. I'd like to see more of this AU - like, is Kavanagh the chemistry teacher?
Author's Response: Thank you! I was rather in the mood to write domesticness and this is what came out. And yes, Kavanagh is the Chemistry teacher. (I had the whole staff worked out. *g*)
Summary: It ran between the fingers of his memory.

Wow. I mean, I don't have words, really. I mean, the sheer concept is brilliant, and then. All of it. The progression into full-blown telepathy, the way other people saw it, the memories. oh. "Of course it's going to kill them" really got to me, for some reason - just the knowing of it, the helplessness. And it doesn't feel (as can happen) like you wimped out by not actually killing them - in a way it hurts more that they experienced that joining and then had to leave. So, yes. Wow.
Author's Response: Well, usually stories that feel like a cop out if the characters live are ones where the writer tacked on the happy ending to satisfy some idea of how it 'should be'. Like when the studios forced Hitchcock to revise the ending of 'Suspicion' so Cary Grant isn't a murderer after all. invaldiated the entire movie. I always intended the story to end with them alive at the end, if somewhat traumatized.
Chapter 9: Life in Solitary
Summary: Slowly he raised his hands in the air and turned to face McKay, who was standing beside the door, his back to the wall. In the dim light filtering through the shuttered balcony doors, John could see McKay's Beretta pointed at him.

This is very, very hot. Very. And it's very definitely them, not just any guys. And. Yeah. Guh.
Chapter 1: Threat Assessment
"This is an insane waste of an invaluable resource. Can you imagine Niels Bohr dying of intestinal parasites? Enrico Fermi eaten alive by tsetse flies?"

This is seriously, seriously good. Rodney, willing to overlook potential-Wraith-worship in pursuit of coffee, and then becoming the "willing" victim... ow. In that first little scene, John's indifference shows, and that just seems wrong, and then you realise it's because of the drugs, and you find out what happened at the same time he does, through his fractured memories. And Zelenka's coveted moka pot! and his sneaky little plan to get the pair of them talking again, and. *sigh* I like. A lot.
Author's Response: Thank you!
