Such a cool vignette. So much packed into so few words. Bouncy Tigger Rodney after he's distracted, practically dragging John back to the jumper.

Beautiful story. Good of John to go through with the Completion for Ronon and Teyla's sake. I was very sad for Teyla that the Athosians could not accept her during her change and that it would forever alter how they would treat her. I was wondering how you'd work the Gestalt, because I thought that they wouldn't be able to have something permanent like that. A very good story. I really enjoyed it and all of its parts.

Treading Water by Reflex [PG-13]
[Reviews - 35]

Summary: Drowning had never been a fear Rodney needed to embrace. Trust, relying on others, and having to betray his own secrets, however, was something that kept him awake at night. Friendship, whump, genetic manipulation, homicidal tree huggers...

Glad that it's going to be a series. You surprised me greatly with part 1 when I was trying to figure out what was going on with Rodney. Good that Rodney's happy now & hopefully the water on other planets will be OK. Looking forward to more.

Author's Response: lol. Yeah, I was trying for the element of surprise in that first chapter ;) Glad to know it worked! Thanks for commenting and I hope you enjoy future stories!

Hi, I read the first part of your series elsewhere, and was happy to see that you've written a followup because I really wanted to see what would result with this John. Glad to see that he's making his own way. Too bad about the intolerant attitudes & Aiden's lack of action, but interesting thought in pairing John & Rodney on a team with Blair & Jim. Hope that you'll find Ronon in the future, and that you have lots of good plans for them all.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! Actually, I do have plans for Ronon, but that's a couple of stories down the line. Much will happen before then!

Very nice. So, was Cadman really imagining what John thought she was?

I had to go find the "Oh, Whistle..." story that you mentioned and read it. I was going to say that you were much kinder to Rodney than MR James was to his character, but to have his haunting look like John puts an extra twist in. Your ending was so incredibly sweet though (Rodney stomping around to get John a tray). I liked it very much.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! Yes, I enjoyed writing that ending.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Lorne/Parrish. Have you ever see "Noises Off", the play where they flip the set around at intermission, and you can see what is going on behind the set? That's what this story does with the "irresistible" episode.

You're right, this would have been an excellent episode for Parrish to be in, and I do like Lorne & Parrish together! Very nice.

Author's Response: He really should have been there. It would have been great. Thanks!

Very angsty & stressful. Poor Rodney. I hate to think of SG treating him like dirty. I was glad for Rodney & John that they have Teyla & Ronon trying to help them. Thanks for writing.

I like it! Nice to think of Rodney being able to fit it a little better than he did before, kicking butt both literally & getting one over on Carter. Why would John be calling Rodney though? How would he know him at this point in time?
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Oh, sure, riders said that dragons never hurt humans, but had anyone who believed that ever taken a good look at those teeth?

When I started reading, I almost wondered if you were going to have Rodney impress a queen egg, and John be a bronze rider. But this is better. Looking forward to more.

Author's Response: Hee, glad you enjoyed! John would enjoy being a rider, I think...but even more fun if he can fly himself!

Hmmm, interesting. I hadn't kept up with Buffy, so I'm unclear about a lot of things, but looking forward to more of the story.
Chapter 1: forbidden means bad

Summary: John's not quite awake yet, but he's aware of some things. The give of the mattress underneath his shoulder. The body-warmed air between the sheets. The slight chill of the room that tells him he'll have to move, soon, if only to burrow deeper into the blankets.
