i finally catched up with the last 3 chapters and oh my god! you did a fabulous job, you know that, dont you? this was really the best fic i have ever read in this archive (but i havent read them all, so it's a challenge for anyone, who writes ;)) really i loved this, really well written, despite its length there were no reiterations, everything so nice, and new! i was just hoping for rodney and john to go out that morning wearing the pendants and seeing everybody's reactions, but still this was full! do you know what? you really should consider writing some samples for sga itself! but i regret that you'll have to omit the slashy parts, which makes the story even juicy ;) well what's left to say? write more!

Author's Response: :-)

Author's Response: Thanks so much Almond! It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed the story so much. As for writing for SGA - heh - I doubt I'd be able to write anything that didn't end up with John and Rodney kissing each other! *g*
