Loved this story. I will have to read the originals that your story is based on. John & Rodney both great. Love the meeting, John's reactions to Rodney, the dust bunny!! Because I am dense, it took me overly long to accept that Daniel was the bad guy. What a cool world. The mourning & lamentation when John retires from acting!!

So good! You cover so much emotion and history in just a few words.

Author's Response: Thank you very much!
Chapter 1: Two Years After Tomorrow

Summary: Fusion with BBC's Merlin that will probably make little sense if you haven't watched at least a little of that show. Rodney is Merlin. John is Arthur. Arthur is an idiot.

I haven't seen the BBC Merlin, but I like this anyway. Angsty & sweet.

The cards were great; John's humming & 5-minute warning are perfect.

John's mother sounds great. The ending did surprise me, but it was sweet and comforting.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: When Atlantis - upon returning to the Pegasus Galaxy from Earth - breaks apart in hyperspace, only John is saved from the debris. The group of Ancients that retrieved him offer him a bargain: Either he helps them make corrections in some universes, where things have gone wrong, or they put him back where he was found. Reluctantly accepting, John embarks on a lonely journey through a multitude of universes until he finally reaches the place he could again call home.

Groundhog Day taken to the nth level. So sorry for John, but glad that you made it up to him in the end (even got his parents & brother back!). I was sad while reading it, and anxious until it reached the end, but yay! Adding to favorites. Thank you!

Author's Response: Um, yes. Well, more like quantum leap since it\'s not the same day over and over, but still, yes. Indeed. There is a post on LJ (http://darkmoore.livejournal.com/64036.html) where I tell how this insane plot came into being. I\'m sorry that you were sad while reading the story, but at the same time it is good that you could feel for John, we know we really put him through a lot. And of course we made it up to him. We couldn\'t just torture him like this and then not give him something for all his pain. I\'m glad you like the story so much an feeling honored that you count it among your favorites. Thanks!
