"We're the ones who do the impossible. We're the ones that find the solution when there is none. We're the ones that fix this." (An AU set at the beginning of The Seige trilogy.)

Wow, a wonderful story. The fear and cold were both palpable.
Your Rodney/Radek interaction is perfect - the way they work; how Radek is used to just putting up with Rodney's insults to a point and then snaps; how they can still argue about silly things like pillows despite everything else that's going on; Rodney with his insane jumps in logic whilst Radek is the sensible, methodical one.
I love the idea that McKay emergency kit includes powerbars and toothbrushes! Rodney trying to justify the kiss was funny and sweet. Radek getting so caught up in his idea that he forgot to get dressed - LMAO, surely every scientist's nightmare *g*
Basically, loved it lots. Hope you plan to write more with this pairing.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. My two biggest concerns while writing this was that the characterisation wouldn't ring true and that readers wouldn't be able to follow the plot. I'm utterly thrilled that the characterisation worked for you.
John gets Czech lessons. Rodney gets irritated.

Awww very cute. I love how the both know it’ll annoy Rodney ;) And Rodney completely falling for it. Also the fact that he taped the conversation doesn’t surprise me at all. I’m curious what he offered to Elizabeth to get her to agree to translate it though ;)
Like I said before, I hope you continue to write Radek/John.
