Just so heartwarming and happy-making. I just discovered this story and it just makes me feel good inside. It makes me want to be there and I hate the beach! Thanks for putting together such a well-crafted piece for us.

Author's Response: :>) sorry you hate the beach, under the right conditions, it's a lovely place to visit. Thank you also for taking the time to share your feedback, I appreciate it very much.

Brutal. Heartwrenchingly horribly gut-clenchingly brutal. A great story--Temal seemed almost human compared to Petron. I'd like to see Ronan show Petron a few things he learned fron the Wraith. I think the best end for Petron would be something out of Greek mythology--Tityus was imprisoned in Hades and vultures chewed out his liver everyday and it grew back at night--I say we have the Wraith suck all but the last molecule of Life out of Petron and then rejuvenate him just to start over again the next day. anyway, brilliant fic and hurry back with an update please.

Author's Response: I was worried it might be too brutal, I'm glad you think it worked ok :)

Very Creative way to get John's clothes off!! Lovely story--my favorite is the first time and you did a great job with both the characters and the hot monkey sex!!!! Yummy!

Author's Response: I got inspiration for the ripping-off-of-the-tshirt from a pic. *g* I do love first times, so seem to write a lot of them. I'm glad the characters seemed true to you! And I can't seem to help myself and keep away from writing smut. Thank's for letting me know you enjoyed it!

Lovely first-time fic! The banter between John and ROdney was spot-on and their lovemaking was very hot too. I love how Rodney decides he can't--doesn't want to--manipulate John into the hot monkey sex. Vey sweet. Any chance at a sequel? More first-times for Rodney?

Author's Response: Thanks! I doubt if there'll be a sequel to this particular fic, but since I love writing first time fics, I can assure you there'll be more of those. :)

Really, really terrific story--I love how Rodney may have looked different at twenty but his personality was already in endearingly arrogant. The lovemaking between them was wonderfully hot and tender at the same time--my heart leapt like John's did when Rodney said he'd regretted not asking JOhn to fuck him--but it would have been even sweeter if Rodney had never asked anyone else either, but rather had stayed a virgin if he couldn't have JOhn. Improbable I know--but hey, like Gate-travel is likely either [bg]

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm thrilled this story worked for you, especially younger Rodney; he was tricky to write. yeah, it wouldn't have very likely that Rodney had waited for John, but I like to think he did too. /g/

Absol-f**kinglutely brilliant!!! I would worship at your feet if I knew where to find you!! Adorable story made even better by its unusual format. Cute, creative, fabulous---loved the studmuffin line--and thought I'd faint with longing at the frame where Rodney's thinking of John's oh-so-delicious lips [swoons ever so slightly]. Great, great, great!

Really, really lovely. I like this fic for the tenderness that permeates the entire hot monkey sex thingy. Makes me feel all warm inside, thinking of our boys like that--gentle, loving, hot, and caring. Best line--[John] revels it in, in being dirty and slutty and pleasured and Rodney's. Yay, John belongs to Rodney (and we know vice versa!)Thanks!

I remember reading the first part elsewhere. Glad to see a sequel!! And you mentioned Lush (see my name, above)--Yay!!!! Best skincare and soap in two galaxies! Thanks for a lovely, humorous fic.

Author's Response: Thank you! Personally, I think John is a total closet LUSH addict. I'm sure he has a secret stash of Bath Bombs somewhere.

Chapter 1: Chapter 1(John's POV)

Summary: No, these definitely weren't fake entries. If Rodney had known that John was going to take files from his computer, he'd have taken this file and burned it, put it in a box full of dirt from Transylvania and thrown it into the nearest unstable vortex.

Wow! Even better than the first two chapters. I have read your responses to reviewers and I wish you could write parrish because I'd love to see the back story to this--how did parrish feel when Lorne asked him, and does he really like Lorne quiet?

Author's Response: OMG! I know, I wish I could write Parrish too. You\'d think it would be easy given that he isn\'t really one of the central characters. I mean you have a standard to go by with Sheppard and McKay and others, but Parrish isn\'t on screen as much as they are. But it\'s not easy for me.\r\nSince I\'ve gotten a couple of responces saying they\'d like to see parrish, I MAY try to hammer one out, but if it feels forced even after a beta, I won\'t post it. But I might try to see what I can do. \r\nwe\'ll see.\r\nThanks for the review!
