This chapter almost made me cry with the promotion ceremony. I honestly thought in one of the earlier chapters you killed off mason and were going to pull the someone using the appearance shifter tech from the early sg1 ep as some one else with a axe to grind on Rodney

I wish to express my appretiation of this installment in your 'Team' series. I'll admit that I hadn't been expecting much of an adventure from a post 'Siege' fic (particularly since it's called "Picking Up the Pieces"). You pleasantly surprised me by working respite for overworked characters, suspense for same characters, administrative necessities, and emotional settling into the same story in a seamless manner. You really need all of those elements to make a chapter story set right after the resolution of a three part episode of great tension and you made it work.
In this story, I particularly enjoyed your SG-1 cameos. It's interesting to see them pursuing their own places in the universe (separately one from another) just at the time SGA-1 is being drawn closer together through losses and mutually formative experiences.
I like the way you indicate that the past experiences don't lose value for SG-1 and that they still have a team bond even with everyone going their own separate ways. It is comforting.

Hello, What a great tag to the beginning of season 2. Loved the way you tied in Sg-1 as well. You did a great job with each of the characters voices. Loved the ending with Rodney pinning John's oak leaves on him. The friendship between John, Rodney and Carson was well developed. It was nice to see the friendship between Sam and John and the support for each other. Sam is very understanding about team dynamics and I appreciate the fact that you were able to demonstrate that in your story. So, yes, another favorite story to be re-read in the future. Thank you so much for sharing the story. Looking forward to the next installment.

thank you for your message. It seems a direct answer is not possible, so I send it as a review.
I am glad to hear there is some johnwump, too, in the future ;-). Generally I like all members of the team, Ronon too (more than Ford, I have to admit). And after John Rodney is my next favourite character. I think the way, David Hewlett is acting as rodney is extraordinary (especially in "the shrine", I was very impressed there)

Suitable ending, I liked the ceremony with all the nice things Jack said about Shep. Good of Evertte to leave a video.
Thanks for another excellent adventure.

Our Major now a Lt Colonel—-I can imagine this is how it went down as that episode suggested but I love your more personalized take. I love the reference about The Game—really lightened things up loved the ceremony and now...I look forward to your next story! Kudos for this excellent one!

Loved reading on how John got the promotion...great version. Of course Rodney would be the one John would choose to pin on the new pins. Another excellently written and very enjoyable story! Thank you so much for sharing your stories with us. Please keep them coming!

Glad it was just one disgruntled scientist —I thought that Dr Griffin was in on it too...glad she wasn’t! Love Carter knowing that there was more going on with John and Rodney and getting it, coz she’s been ther, dont]e that...ganother great chapter!

Ok, it’s only his arm..no kill shot...hurry John and Carson, and Sam!

Again, a great story! I like your writing very much, your characters are very complex. I know you are more a Rodney-fan and I am more a john-fan but you write both of them so good that I love reading it and I am looking forward for the next story!
Thank you for writing them!

Da, da, da dum...what a twist! They cant catch a break, can they?! Hope John gets there in time to rescue Rodney—but, I already know you won’t let it be easy! Can’t wait to read the next chapter!

Excellent chapter! John calms Rodney...O’Neill calms John...now Rodney will get the rest he needs and I think John feels better since his talk with Jack too. Clever idea to have O’Neill come back—I suspect John will need his expertise to get through his debriefs with a disapproving General Landry and the other members of his review board. Loved the tenderness , reassurance and friendship you lavished this chapter with! Oh, and that damn Kolya still haunting Rodney was a perfect way to show how strung out Rodney was—-brilliant!

So they jump from one fire to another. Didn’t anyone at the SGC even think the Atlantis leaders might need a few days to recoup—get some sleep, decompress, grieve their losses and eat properly before they stressed them out further by interrogations —oh, I’m sorry—they call them debriefs, right?! Poor Rodney is at his breaking point, big time! Hope John can talk him down!

Ah, they should be celebrating but the losses and the weariness are so overwhelming. You did a wonderful job conveying those emotions. I could feel Rodney’s fatigue and remorse so clearly..and John’s remorse and sadness also. Great job!
