Okay, I'm female, 32 and live in Leicester, UK. Big fan of sci-fi in general and obviously Atlantis :). I'm also a huge slash fan. I'll read anyone with Sheppard...does that make me a Shepslut? I particularly like John/Carson and John/Rodney, and better yet John/Carson/Rodney mmmmm. Edited to add Radek...John/Radek or John/Radek in a threesome (or even foursome) with Carson or Rodney *vbg*.
Oh, and Lorne, as well ;).

I was pleased that Rodney didn't really want to rub John's face in it, and I found myself grinning in anticipation when he told Carson that John might come round with the right guidance :). I was also pleased when they were finally released from quarantine, and amused by Rodney putting Kavanagh back in his place *g*. The Rodney/Carson bit was hot and sweet. And I liked John's thoughts on Atlantis and how he'd been foolish to hate the confines. I loved the fact that his stint as a bird broke his melancholy and also gave him his dreams back. Laura.
I liked the whole bird thing, especially the way they were still able to bitch at each other :). It amused me that that was what tipped Elizabeth off as to who the birds were *g*. All the gawking that went on, and Rodney's typically snappish reaction was funny too :D. I liked that Carson invited John along for supper, and also that he started considering just why John seemed so surprised. Plus it was reassuring to see that he and Rodney really have forgiven John. I'm interested to see what Carson's tests reveal and how it might affect things. I was happy that missions would be started again, but I was with John and Rodney on Weir's denial over returning to the temple. I'd hoped she might show a little more compassion for them and allow them to at least try and understand just what changes they've gone through :(. Maybe Carson's discoveries will change that? Laura.
I liked the supper, how the awkwardness was a little better and also Carson's casual declaration of love. I enjoyed the anticipation while Carson and Rodney worked on the tests, and the sex was hot and sweet. I was pleased when Rodney told Crason he loved him too :). I was also pleased by the fact that they hadn't resolved John yet, but that Rodney had wanted him to watch :). I felt sorry for John when he woke from his awful nightmare, and then found Carson alive...but with Rodney. I liked the way Carson and Rodney lured him to the bed and then ruthlessly settled down so he couldn't leave without disturbing them :). Laura.
I loved Rodney and Carson's repeated attempts to make John understand what they were offering him, and was saddened when he ran away the first time. It's good that they didn't give up though, and that John subconsciously took himself to them that last time :). I really hope that Carson and Rodney can get to the bottom of John's fear and panic because, oh my, but the three of them is hot ::drool::. I was pleased that they didn't let him escape, and am looking forward to the morning after...so I'm off to read that now :). Laura.
I'm happy to see that Rodney and Carson have managed to interupt John's panic and need to flee quite successfully so far, and such a pleasing way of doing it too *g*...long may it continue :). I was pleased to see them back out on missions, and missions that went well too- always a pleasant surprise *hee*.
Ok, that's irritating; I accidentally submitted my review before I'd finished writing it! >(. Aaanyway...I *had* been going to add that I enjoyed first Radek's and then Rodney's thorough dressing down of Kavanagh. The man's an idiot, so I don't hold out much hope that he'll actually *listen* to what they said, but it was fun anyway :). Laura.
Poor Carson, having to deal with all those uncomfortable patients :(. I see John's still *thinking* about this relationship; Rodney and Carson really need to stop him doing that. At least they don't have to pin him to the bed to stop him running any more :). These new weapons are interesting, and I was amused by Ford, and Kavanagh, trying to name them. Poor Carson though, having lovers on the brink of coma is not fun ;). Laura
I was amused by Stackhouse shooting the fish *after* checking it wasn't Rodney or Carson ::giggle::. And yay! Carson's finally managed to get both John and Rodney awake, which was nice...and hot :). It was a shame about the Fallathi being trading partners with the Genii :(. I was intrigued by Rodney's thoughts on liquid sex. I had briefly wondered why they hadn't given it a go, but Rodney's thoughts on it actually proving that their changes were real made sense. Laura.
I enjoyed the 'I'm a bigger, badder, fish than you' playfulness, and the liquid sex was interesting, and intense. I wonder what would happen if they merged completely? I've also been wondering what would happen if they somehow got dispersed in their liquid or dust forms? Could that even happen? After all, Carson did get splashed about when John landed on him. The translation was a great thing to find; I can just magine all the things they'll be able to use now they can decifer the instructions quicker.
Loved Rodney's retribution on the linguists for dawdling *bg*. And John actually using his desk ::falls off chair::. I'm glad Kavanagh got a dressing down. Again. This time for his sensor recalibrations. The various theories on the Ancients dealings with the Wraith shed new light on them...they really don't seem to be as great and good as their PR would have us believe :(. Poor Carson, it must be difficult to be worried about the fact that you're not more worried. All circuitous thinking and headache inducing :(. I was glad that John stopped Rodney from ranting when Carson reappeared, and hope he will talk to them about what was bothering him. It will be interesting to se if they now have the same feelings regarding Earth as Carson does. Laura.
Oh, Rodney's in *so* much trouble! My question has ben answered about whether Carson was the only one with those thoughts about Earth. Rodney's meeting was hectic...I was with John and Carson in looking out for the Apocolypse after he agreed with Kavanagh so much! *g*. I wonder if Carson *was* being paranoid about being watched, after all, John did see those two people watching them in the mess. I loved the dust sex; firstly John's aggression being out done by Carson, and then his desperate need to stay in that form. I loved John's anger at Rodney sneaking away, and can only assume that Carson feels much the same. Rodney's space walk was intriguing though, and Yay, you let Peter live :). Laura.
Noooo, it's finished ::sniffle::. I love you and want to marry you, this was such a great story *vbg*. That argument was pretty spectacular, and such a great exit on Carson's part; never mind storming out, turn into a cloud of dust instead! The aftermath of Carson leaving was great too, the way John and Rodney eventually wore him down by letting him feel their most vulnerable feelings. It's a shame their fight was so public though, even if Weir was willing to let it go. I was happy that the satelitte destroyed the hive ships, and was amused by John's unenthusiastic response, as well as his and Rodney's irreverence towards Elizabeth and her speech making *g*. I liked that the guys snuck out of the party. Halling's little charm was a nice touch and I enjoyed the non sequiturs in the conversation :). I was happy with the way Radek and Peter discussed the John/Rodney/Carson aspect and ultimately dismissed it as unimportant. I'd like to hope that most of the rest of the personnel would have the same reaction. The ending was excellent though, the three of them finally able to just be their new selves for a little bit now that the pressure of defending against the Wraith has eased. "For the moment though, they were home" was such a great last line and made me smile and hope that things can only improve for them. A great story, which I've been forced to add to my favourites. I expect you'll be glad to see the back of me though, so I'll leave you in peace...with a little nudge to write more stuff like this :). Laura.

Hot. Hothothot! I loved how all of Rodney's arguements were so very coherent and quite sensible, but just wouldn't come out :). And it seems so very *Rodney* to be thinking that much even during frighteningly great sex ::rolls eyes::. Still, it's good to know that John's hit on the one method of shutting his brain up for a while with that kiss *g*. Laura.
This was great. I love the contrast to Rodney's pov, not a single doubt in John's mind that this is right. It makes me pleased to think that he's convinced Rodney of this too :). Laura.
Oh yes, sublime indeed...and hot. I'd definitely say that John's brought Rodney round from his "wrong" thoughts :). This was quite beautiful. I loved the way John was trying to keep Rodney with him, and then suddenly Rodney took control. I think that last line really made the whole story though, that line where John is thinking of Rodney as being next to his soul...just wow! Laura.
Wow, this was hot! I loved that Rodney realised that he could take control from John, and he did it so well :). It sounds like he's finally managed to quiet the doubting part of himself and accept that this is real, even if he can't quite believe it yet. I also loved how this mirrored John's thoughts about Rodney being next to his soul, with Rodney realising that he'd given himself to John long ago, hidden himself inside him somewhere. Very poetic and moving. Laura.
Oh that was hot! I'm glad Rodney caught on to John's need to beg...something to be explored in further chapters maybe? *g* Laura.
This is a great contrast to chapter five. When this was from John's pov, it seemed as if Rodney understood what John wanted much quicker than he actually did. It was interesting having that in the back of my mind and comparing it to Rodney's bewilderment over John's not doing anything, thinking he wanted Rodney to beg. I loved the little flash of realisation and Rodney's vague irritation at it- at all of it really. I'm glad it's only a tiny part of him though and that the rest is quite happy where it is :). Laura.
He hadn't dreamed about him in years, but now he couldnt stop. Why is Rodeny dreaming of the father who one beat him into a coma?

So , is it a coincidence that everyone's dreaming of their childhood, or is it all a nefarious plot? I loved the insights we get into the dreamers' pasts, and how they compare to the people we know today. But Rodney's father was some piece of work *grrr*. I just hope he'll open up to John soon, as this is obviously affecting him :(. I love that they'e married now, and that we get the timescale set out by the two years as best friends and a year of dating before three months of marriage information. One minor quibble I have is that you use 'husband' a lot of times in a few paragraphs...but it's only a minor quibble. I look forward to the next chapter. Do these people they're about to host have anything to do with the dreams I wonder? Laura.
Author's Response: Now now now, that would be telling. Don't worry, chapter two will explain things alot more. i hope you are not disappointed. If you are, please dont flame me! ;o)
I guess i did use 'husband' alot, i just wanted to get across how close they were. Thanks for reviewing
Chapter 1: The Best of Times, The Worst of Times
GAH!!! Evil cliffhanger! The plot thickens. I perked up imediately when I learned that the Thesarians were telepaths...I could see that somehow being behind the dreams of childhood. I'm concerned for Rodney now though :(. Poor John too ::is sad::. Having seen the effects on Rodney of Mendesa's lapse, I have to wonder whether it's him that the Thesarians are working on in the infirmary, and that it's affecting Rodney due to the close link they seem to have. This is not good...but in a good way ;). Laura.
Author's Response: THere's a plot? *grins* Joking! Im concerned about Rodney too, even though I know whats going to happen to him. He's going to be put through the wringer... poor Baby
