Reactions and Reviews

Poor John is so, so confused in this fic and I love it. Rodney disappears suddenly, and no one can find it. Most of the story is set squarely in John’s head, and a beautiful, panicked, confused place it is. And I love that it doesn’t resolve easily or cleanly or quickly, but still leaves you satisfied and pleased. [1]

McKay is tortured by captors while Shepherd waits impotently in the cell. And then Rodney gets the team out and through the gate, kissing John before he shoves him though and remaining behind.... This story has it all: capture, torture, heroics, Angsty!John and lots of trademark Speranza humour. [2]
