New to Atlantis fandom but happy to be along for the ride.
It was strangely important that she got the method right.

I still love this story even more now than when I first read it. So glad to see you posted it here.
The city of Atlantis wishes to speak with her new people.

I really liked this story.
Atlantis as a character is gentle and loving and yet is very critical of her previous children, the Ancients. And at the same time, there's so much she wants to share with the new inhabitants and does not have the power to tell them. Dare I hope for a sequel?
Bates fights with intelligence. Teyla figts with knowledge.

To echo the sentiments of others: this was a really good fic.
Very revealing about both Bates and Teyla. I like the fact that Bates studies her, not to take advantage, but to learn her without the recriminations between them. Presenting himself as something new which makes him intersting to Teyla and opening them both up to examining their biases about each other. And the sex flowed right into it so well.
Tag scene for "Critical Mass", team bonding.
*WARNING* Spoilers for Critical Mass.

This was lovely. I watched "Critical Mass" last night and was a little peeved that no one checked in on Teyla to see how she was doing. This was a very apt way of addressing the aftermath of Charin's death. Thank you.

I will never think of opera the same way again. This was just lovely. Elizabeth finally lets herself have what she wants and Ronon and Teyla are glad to oblige. John and Rodney don't know what they missed!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked--it was fun to write.
Teyla realizes that she has to reconsider her choices.

Great beginning! Oddly enough, I had started sketching out a story dealing with Teyla and family relationships. Talk about being on a similar wavelength!
I'm still getting over Teyla setting her sights on Kavanaugh. That was a twist I wasn't expecting. I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: If you consider it, Kavanagh has a lot to offer - we only need to see him what he is like, not what Weir and the others see in him.
I was really glad to see another part of this up today. I'm really enjoying the world building you're doing for Teyla and the Athosians and you've really given a lot of insight into Kavanaugh and what drives him. Looking forward to more.
Author's Response: Thank you. It's not an easy process, this story seems to have a life of its own. But I hope to finish it in two more chapters. *crosses fingers*
However, a sequel is already in planning... As you see, I'm not the one in control here.
I observe the Atlanteans, study their behavior, and I cannot help but note how foolish they truly are.

I really liked this. For a while I'd been thinking that the Ancients were not exactly as benevolent as they see themselves to be. Glad to see this from Hermiod's perspective.
Author's Response: Thanks. I have been considering this for a while now, and what I have written is the only real conclusion I could reach. However, I suppose it does depend on perspective. The Ancients obviously think they are doing nothing wrong. Additionally, Hermiod seemed to be the best one. I couldn’t really picture anyone else realizing this until much later on.
Rodney tallied up their resources for their retreat to Area 51: two shotguns, one 9mm, a couple of fancy sticks, and a knife-wielding directionally challenged angel. They were so dead.

I remember reading this over on LJ and I'm glad to see it again here. If the muse ever strikes again I hope to read more, but if not, thanks for this. You actually painted a pretty broad picture of what is/could be happening with enough room for readers to fill in their own blanks. I'm not the biggest John/Rodney fan but you leavened it with a nice dose of Ronon and Teyla(!) and that made it work even better for me. Great job.
Author's Response: I keep looking at this story and wishing I had more - it was fun to write what I had. It would definitely be a team piece, Ronon and Teyla would be vital. Thanks so much for letting me know you enjoyed it!
