I'm relatively new to writing fanfiction. In fact, Atlantis is the only fandom I've ever felt comfortable enough in to attempt to play with. I have one beta, Anyanka, who rocks like you wouldn't believe, and she keeps me from abandoning my stories before they're finished. It's amazing what one can accomplish with a little encouragement. :)
When Rodney is being culled, John suddenly has to deal with the loss of his best friend. As for Rodney, things get downhill from there.
Set somewhere after The Hive, spoilers up to that episode.

Perfect. Beautiful. It hurts that Rodney can see Atlantis and know he'll never see it again. He knows and he can't stop watching for it anyway. John finding Jeannie was a great scene. She knows her brother so well that she knows he's alive and that this stranger is the man Rodney told her about. John listening to Rodney's voice on loop was so poignant. *sigh* So wonderful. This makes me happy. :)
Author's Response: thank you very much! :)

That's my girl! *sniff* I'm so proud. :) I love this story, and I love it even better published. Hee! Can't wait for part two.
Author's Response: Thank you. Its good to see it published isn't? Part 2 is underway, although its doing my head in :-)
Faboo! It's great hon, and gives me a warm squishy feeling inside. *sighs happily*
Author's Response: Big hugs for all your help.
Elizabeth, you wonderful, wonderful woman. It's a good thing the boys are so fun to have around, or Liz just might have to throw them off a balcony to get some peace and quiet!
Author's Response: I think she views them as crazy sibling who you might as well get on with because they're family.
Rodney was exactly where he belonged. And it was the last place he ever expected to find himself.

So nice. Warm and slow and exciting and beautiful. I love John loving Rodney from afar, and I love Rodney loving John and not even realizing it. Well done. :)
Chapter 1: Unanticipated Outcomes
"You don't have much time, Dr McKay. Choose. Your life or his?"

Still so, so perfect. It reads even better when I'm not hallucinating with exhaustion! :)
Author's Response: Yeah, quite pleased with this one. Thanks for the sequel. Glad you've got some sleep and you've sent me something to read :-)
Rodney accepted that one day he might die on an alien planet...he just didn't want to be killed by giant bats...or giant anything for that matter. Not a death fic

I am a bad friend. I have waited far too long to review this chapter. *hangs head* It is beautiful and I still think the name of the story is perfect. Cloud nymphs, gotta love it. By the by, send me the next chapter to beta soon cause the suspense is killing me. I showed you mine so you show me yours. Pay up you sexy diva you! *grins*
Author's Response: Give me a couple of hours and you'll be beta-ing :-)
Nice! I can't wait for the next chapter and all the internal Rodney monologue about what an idiot John is. Hee! Such fun!
Author's Response: Thanks hon. He is an idiot but I think Rodney's going to have have bigger things to worry about :-)
McKay/Sheppard, McKay/Dex - set after Allies --- He can survive. He just has to hold on - has to stay alive and keep Ronon alive - help will come. Sheppard will come.

Oh wow. Well done! I can't wait to see what happens next. I can't wait to see what else Rodney remembers. Fabulous!

That was amazing! As someone who can't draw a straight line with a ruler, I'm deeply impressed and, yeah, maybe a little jealous. *grin* More yes? *hugs comic John and Rodney*
Author's Response: *chuckles* I especially liked your ruler comment! Thanks so much, it made me smile!
I try to draw more soon!
Rodney's a little annoyed at John's last words to him, but not for the reason you'd think. Drabble. McShep friendship.
