For obvious reasons they couldn't exchange rings and Rodney refused John's sly suggestion of matching tattoos, no matter how well hidden they might be.
Instead, John 'lost' his dog tags at the earliest opportunity and requisitioned a new set via the Daedalus. Rodney wore a proud little smirk for weeks after, twitching a little very time they moved and caught him unaware.
Rodney thought long and hard about how to show his own commitment and settled on a simple, replaceable symbol of his love and trust.
Each time Carson replaced Rodney's pair of EpiPens, he handed one over to John.
