The Guys and Sam get stuck underground with no means of escape, with little food they must wait for the Daedalus, only it's late, very late, and times running out for McKay.

Good story. The part about Rodney submitting to John's authority was a bit out of character though. Rodney allowing John to have that sort of authority over him under any circumstances except professional ones is something pretty much invented by fangirls who get off on the idea of John being a big manly possesive macho man and Rodney bizarrely meekly submitting to him - a position not supported by the show itself where Rodney only backs down professionally when it's appropriate and even then frequently attempts to get his own way regardless (Doranda, Elizabeths nanites, Wallace, being only a few examples of Rodney not respecting any power John believes he has) and personally, well no more than John himself. Rodney is probably the least likely character to be submissive in his day to day life and John, while protective, is hardly the possesive type. It's a shame that this "fanon" version of Rodney and John has been spread about fandom by authors who have a poor handle on the characters because it becomes so widespread that good authors such as yourself get sucked into the fanon and thats the sort of character mishap that stops a good fic like this from being a great one.
Author's Response: umm Thanks I think ^_^... And I totally hear you, and ya, ok I might have fallen into the fanon a little, but there was a reason for it being that way, but I still think John\'s care giving when Rodney is so ill is cannon, have you seen \'The Shrine\'? John cant keep his hands off Rodney when he\'s sick :P (And is where most authors get the possessive John from). I guess I just didnít make it clear enough >_< and thought I had evened out the character at the end... I have angst about all the sap while I waited for this fic to be posted (over a month or two) but in the end I just couldnít bring myself to change it :P \r\nBut it is my 1st McShep and no apologise for being a sap writer, I wish I could help it but I do love my H/C ^_^... thanks again for the feedback, I\'ll try and keep it in mind with the others I have half finished :P no promises, I think we all see what we want in the characters ^_^ it\'s what makes fanfiction so fun! \r\n
