I've really enjoyed your story. You write Rush and Young in a very believable way. I hope you finish it.

I've really enjoyed the story so far. It's been very interesting.
I hope you're planning on finishing it. I would love to see how it ends. :)

This is a really great story and I can't wait for the next chapter!

Okay, evil cliffie... Such a dramatic statement and then...nothing? Poor Col. Young, lying pale and injured, while Rush argues with the AI that there will never be anything between them. I am seriously hoping for scalding steamy fever dreams. Something, anything to make me hope for more. Please? ;) Thanks for the ride so far. ES

By my calculations April was the earliest we could hear from you. Hope you had a great trip and that mum has had a good time and that you'll soon be back. Still hanging on your last words!

Well that last chapter took an interesting turn. Not updated since just before December... hmm well I hope your trip was fun and that you get back soon. I am enjoying your story and since I say Force over Distance at the same time as yours.. I am gonna go read that now too. :P

I love it so far, on the next.

I've only just gotten into this fandom and I found this story Googling around. It is amazing! The characters are gorgeous and the conflict is so realistic and so intense. I love that it is a rape-recovery story that takes its time rather than just jumping right into the healing sex And Destiny as a character is amazing! But most of all, I am in love with your Rush - he's absolutely perfect, so prickly and vulnerable, all wrapped in one.
I'm heartbroken though that it seems it's been abandoned? If you're ever inclined to continue, I'd love to see more of it!

o boy - get back soon - I can't wait for the next bit. Rush/Young is to me the only pairing that makes sense. the pair of them are exactly right for each other - bad (but well hidden good!) and good (doubting). Great

If all I had to do was bitch at you in order to get you to write a chapter, I would have done so much sooner! LOL! Thank you for the acknowledgement.
This is an excellent chapter! Tightly written and moving quickly along. The tensions are strung out, and everyone stayed in character. How annoying that everyone wanted to know exactly what Rush was doing while he was making this up as he went along. I could not understand why none of the other soldiers followed him immediately to help him. Perhaps Scott felt that it was too dangerous, given how the lightening was striking the damn Stargate itself.
"Did I just hear that right, Doc?" said Greer incredulously, perhaps even hopefully.
This is probably the exact point that I can pretty much feel I can say that Greer's previous opinion of Rush have changed. Or perhaps anyone facing imminent drowning would say of anyone. Hell, if it was Volkner, one might as well as commit suicide. But Rush? He's the smart one. He's the one who come up with a plan, even if he doesn't know what it was at the moment. The fact is, he's THERE right now, alot further than anyone else is.
Rush's snarky responses to everyone's pressure on him to hurry up is typical of a man who operate best under pressure, much like our Eli. But it's nice to see Greer's blind faith in our scientist's ability, despite the recent trauma he went through. Is it situations like this that helps him push back those dark horrors, to make them cease to exist?
How did the Colonel and Greer fall so far underground? I don't recall reading that part. Perhaps it's in one of the crevasses. I don't always pick up on things like that, as you've already have impishly discovered on another site with me. It's a small quibble, but it does add height to the danger that they are already in.
Hearing Greer's panicky alert that the Colonel just lost consciousness ramped up the anxiety level. You threw alot at us. Let's see, rising flashflood, lightenings, two men in danger of drowning, an unknown technology that Rush had to adapt to current usage, people on Destiny distracting chatters, the Gate shutting down soon and it all rested on a single man to beat the odds of it all.
One could almost hear all the readers screaming exultations at finding the two men. Well, I know I was screaming too.
I really like the imagery that you used in Young being hauled out of the crevasse, "like a doctor excising a stubborn baby from its mother". It's a significant statement coming from the author. What does it mean deep down? Is this a new beginning for Rush and Young? Because this time it's Young that's hurt and needing help. And it's Rush extending his hand to him, the way our Colonel extended his to him. Or maybe I'm reading too deep into this statement, but I'm of belief that things are rarely said without a reason.
Like how HM (hOuse-mOuse) described the muddy water that swept into the Gate room floor. The rain connects the two locations.
I like also the realistic aspect of the boots and socks being too wet to use still. So Rush walked out barefoot. It makes perfect sense and in a place that's in the middle of no where billion of light years away from home, rules change big time. Little societal rules like that will change and it's good of HM to pick up on that.
I will never understand why some people have such a fear of needles. In my day, needles were hey-yuge and they fracking HURT! Unlike the needles of today where you can barely feel them. Bunch of big babies if you ask me. But... is the needle a symbol of the rape? it is intrusive and it does invade you, take something from you. Perhaps it's just being touched that made our scientist so jumpy.
The AI in Hm's story seem to be more observant and knowledgeable of human behavior than Rush is. It's spot on, despite Rush's protests. Interesting that Rush is trying to convince it that his relationship with the Colonel will never cross professional barriers. Does the AI know what happened on the planet between them? Can it help Rush deal with the aftermath of the trauma? Is it learning from watching everyone? We need to know more about this AI. Why does it communicate with Rush? is he the only one?
A great chapter! I am anxiously waiting for the next one. Do I have to bitch about it? Don't make me beg, dearie! Mwuah!

Hey you wrote two more chapters! Yeah, great. I absolute, still love your story. It's a good one for me. No problems for me to distiguish it from CWR's story (which I also love to read, alongside with nearly everything elaiel wrote (will write)).
Sorry, I don't have the time to give you a real review, but I want you to know, that I'm glad to see you continue.
Another story I can read between my work (which is quite a time-consuming.
