I remember the Due South episode you referenced. I think you have done an admirable job of taking the idea and adapting it to our boys here. This story was very well done, it gave us back story, character development, and whump. All of them fun (for us) :).

Fantastic story )
McKay was saying 'ah' too much for my liking, but otherwise, a great story.

I liked the exploration of how, though very different men with very different asses for fathers, they have essentially the same problems and have found a better family in Atlantis and with each other. I liked how the arguments with the absent father blended into each other as they both came to pretty much the same conclusion!
I also liked the musical entertainment! Frankly the humour was brilliant as usual!
Finally I liked how the story came back to where it started just before the end but from Rodney's perspective instead of John's. Came right back around to where the reader came in.

The story was really well written. I liked it a lot. I have a question for you though. Have you ever watched Due South? There's one episode somewhere in the series that has the same name as your story and is remarkably similar to yours. Did I catch a clever reference?

Heh. I remember that episode of Due South, and it translates surprisingly well to Stargate Atlantis. Great story! And love the ending with Ford hearing Shepard still singing over the radio.

I did like it, although I like your more recent stuff better. Have you been taking writing classes?

I enjoyed it all right. Usually I hate ff's that switch POV around, but it ended up being a wonderful style of writing in this ff. I absolutely loved it, and you write these characters so well. :D

Howdy! I've only recently discovered SGA, and have been happily skipping along through the stories, going from one author's recs to another. Following a link from Gaffer42 led me to this story, and I'm very glad that it did.
Your story provided a refreshing change of pace, with Rodney forced into the role of hero, and John needing to be rescued. You did an excellent job with the characterizations, with every thought, word, and deed true to the characters as I understand them to be.
I've not seen all of the episodes, so I appreciated the sad backstory on both John and Rodney, even if it was provided by ghosts. The way that you had Rodney confess that he'd lied about the camping, not wanting the lie to carry on after his death, was heartstring-tugging.
You mixed just the right blend of the serious with the humorous in this. I'm relieved that I couldn't hear the singing. I absolutely loved how the Wraith ('Dave' LOL!) ultimately met his demise. Just when it looked like Rodney's best efforts had failed, you tossed a chunk of the planet on top of the beastie.
It didn't hurt any that you referenced a fine old favorite show, Due South. Anyway, I just wanted to say, thanks for sharing!
