Wow, that was incredibly well-written (naturally) and very sweet and hot and....
I'll just start a new sentance now and say that it was great.

Thank you! I got kinda hot myself while writing it. All that pressure building up. ;)

Oh, i love it. Just...so gorgeous.
They dance across the surface of the planet in a beautiful ballet, each a thousand miles or more across and a hundred miles high. They merge and grow, or clash and spin away on new trajectories, completely unpredictable.

For the lightshow and the rains, the city hides behind its shield - an upturned goldfish bowl trapped beneath a never-ending torrent. For three to five days, a million tonnes of water every seventeen seconds hits the shields, a deluge of Biblical proportions.

The sheer weight of it, the unimaginable volume, keeps Atlantis in motion on the roiling sea. Dramamine is in short supply for those who have no sea-legs.

Sorry for the huge quote but i just *love* that.

Hee! No need to apologise, huge quotes are love! *g*

The idea of Atlantis being under 'glass' while water just pours down onto it wouldn't leave me alone. Can you imagine standing on one of the balconies? It would be like standing behind Angel Falls - a solid wall of water. The goldfish bowl thing seemed amusingly appropriate. *g*

Yes! Very cool mental image. I wanna be there now.

*hugs fic to chest* Oh, this is just gorgeous. The imagery, both of the rain pouring down over the shield, and of John and Rodney lying together, is so clear in my mind, it's like I saw a painting instead of reading a story.

Lovely descriptions! And hey, it sounds exactly like Texas! With the possible exception of the need for sea legs. :)
