That was more as great... only that I would so love to read about the coming up Dinner.
darkhavens: rodney oh please! [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:25 am (UTC)
Thank you!

The dinner may yet get its own little fic - Rodney's building up a strong head of steam with everyone looking over their shoulders at their table and whispering behind their hands. He's gonna blow soon... *g*

Aww! Rodney will go to any lengths to protect his man.
darkhavens: rodney good morning john [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:26 am (UTC)
Too right! He'd even mud-wrestle Kavanagh, if he absolutely had to. ;)

Terrific story with some great dialog =) Would love to be a fly on the wall near that dinner table!
darkhavens: rodney oh please! [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:28 am (UTC)

I kinda feel like I am - Rodney is not happy about how everyone keeps looking over at their table. He's not happy at all... ;)

*cackles madly, wipes tears from eyes*
1. I love that Rodney is discussing contingency plans in the middle of some lovely slap n' tickle. It kills because you know its true.
2. I want to marry you. Okay, so I'm already married, but thats beside the point. You wrote a happy future in which marriage is allowed for everyone. And I like that you didn't pretend that once the bill was signed that everything was all hunky-dorey. It won't be.
3. For this story, I forgive you addicting me to McShep (I had to forgive Suki 3 stories ago)
This was really great, I loved it.
darkhavens: shep rodney naked now [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:39 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Rodney knows how to multitask and John has learned to just go with the flow and get nekkid as quickly as possible, becuase if there's anything that distracts Rodney from one of his rants, it's naked Sheppard flesh. :D

I liked the idea of the military brass being forced to accept the fact that certain officers under their command are openly gay now that the Bill is passed, even though it sticks in their craws and they'd rather pretend nothing had changed.

And now I'm wondering who would snap under the pressure first and grab their other half for a big wet kiss - Jack or John? :D

Bueller! Hey, even I nearly swallowed my tongue when they trashed the car- and I don't even like cars!

Wonderful. I love that Rodney has a plan all in place just in case. We know we would do it, too. ~squishes the bois together~ ~squishes you~
darkhavens: shep look at me [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:41 am (UTC)
Thank you! ~squishes you back~

I must admit to a squeaked 'No!' the first time I saw the car die, and that was in the cinema! *g*

Rodney has contingency plans in case the contingency oplans fall through! They are going back to Atlantis by hook or by crook. ;)

OMG the coup

*rolls about laughing*

its the reason Zelenka is the best!
darkhavens: rodney who's sleeping w john [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:43 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Radek agreed to help make sure Rodney came back to Atlantis, mainly because being in charge of the whole science dept doesn't leave him much time to moon over Elizbeth or tend to his still. ;)

"You were kidding about the coup though, right?"

lol! Poor John. He just hasn't figured out that 'trained-to-kill pet scientists' remain feral.
darkhavens: rodney who's sleeping w john [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:45 am (UTC)
John is charmingly naive about how far Rodney will go to look out for him. He'll learn. ;)

LadyCatladycat777 on October 11th, 2006 10:54 pm (UTC)
AHAHAHA. Dude, now I want to see the dinner banquet, with all four looking really uncomfortable and wicked, or bored and scathing, depending :)

darkhavens: mcshep make us [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:46 am (UTC)
Thank you! The dinner scene is brewing in my head - Rodney's glaring at anyone who looks at them, and muttering dire imprecations, and Jack is starting to smile, which is always a bad sign. *g*
Gunbunny: tv setburntcopper on October 12th, 2006 12:01 am (UTC)
'each with their own trained to kill pet scientist'

I *like* this concept. It's the so much more fashionable option, darling. Bodyguards are *so* last year.
Gunbunny: daniel buttonburntcopper on October 12th, 2006 12:08 am (UTC)
also, you so know that there are rumours about Daniel. 'You know that scatter-brained image? Don't believe it, it's a cover for being one of the most highly-trained operatives around. Killed more people and aliens than you've had hot dinners.'

Heee! A coup! I'd love to be a fly on the wall at that dinner.
darkhavens: shep mcdaydreams [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:52 am (UTC)
You know one of them would snap eventually and grab their other half to put on the show everyone's been watching them and hoping for. French kissing, feeding by hand, sugar-frosted endearments... Hee!

Thanks. :D

"Just how many contingency plans do you have in place? Is Radek going to stage a coup if we don't get home on time?"

Best line ever! That made me bust out laughing. Wonderful fic! =)
darkhavens: rodney reluctant hero [literati]darkhavens on October 17th, 2006 05:56 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D

Rodney has contingency plans for every occasion, including the original contingency plans failing. The coup is a second tier plan.

(Hijacking an Asgard ship is a third tier plan, but he wont mention that one to John unless he has to. *g*)

I'm sorry I took so long to reply m'dear... This was all I could have hoped for and more!! Delicious, delicious, lol!! As if Rodney WOULDN'T have a back up plan if his back was....welll...UP...


Awesome sweetie - thanks so much!! Truly a kick ass fic!

*Squishes you*
darkhavensdarkhavens on November 11th, 2006 06:05 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Rondey has contingency plans for his contingency plans, and backups for those, just in case. As he said, 'Not going home isn't an option.' Atlantis is their home! (Which is why I'm practically frothing at the mouth waiting for The Return part 2! *g*)
danakszouldanakszoul on November 8th, 2007 10:28 am (UTC)

I'm so in love with you for this.

I'll just go ahead and say it, shall I? I 'ship Ferris/Cameron. So the 'you're my hero' bit filled me with so much glee.

terrible_tues_2 on March 6th, 2009 01:35 pm (UTC)
This left me with a grin on my face. :D
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 8th, 2009 03:51 am (UTC)
Always a good reaction. Thanks!
