And here we go with the continuum again, even though it was just a slight reference to Malachi. .
I really got a good laugh out of the whole Borg comparison, and I just love it when Rodney's offhand comments hold so much truth in them. Also, the easy camaraderie between John and Rodney in the beginning was hilarious, which made their later argument all the more intense.
Although Rodney theorizes along the genetic plotline, I like to believe that just reverting wouldn't enable Josseiah to change the very Gate structure, even if he truly wasn't alone. What, did they just have a round one in store and paint the buildings in minutes? No, I think that for that kind of manipulation, he would have to (at least sort of) ascend; and after all they did have Ancient ancestors, so there's hope!
But argh! I can't believe Rodney gave his painting away, and to that person of all people! - Okay, so that one probably needed it most and I'm just selfishly pissed off because none of the Atlantis team actually got to appreciate the artist in their scientist. And I know you wrote this long, long before the episode 'Sunday', but in hindsight, I'm damn curious about what Lorne would have had to say about that … "

Wow, I can't believe I never reviewed this! Cool, so I can once more say how much I enjoy your writing. This walkabout of Rodney's is both enlightening and fascinating.

This is a most amazing story, extremely well written and worked out. It kept me reading on and on and on.
At times you scared me out of my hide with this fic but it never crossed the line. I liked your ending very much and the portrayal of the characters was both fitting and impressing.

That. Was. So. Freaking. Awesome.
I mean, just, wow! I just read the whole thing through and only stopped once because the phone rang. It was amazing. The whole thought of it, the city and the people you came up with... Terrifying, but brilliant. And I don't completely understand what happened, which makes it even better. I would love to see a sequel. Actually, more than love it. :D

Wow, amazing story! Is this the last chapter? I hope not! Post 8 soon please!

Brilliant! I loved the premise and how you played it.
Rodney's discussion with John about becoming a super human is wonderful, because it shows a lot of aspects in their actions that we usually don't consider.
It made me think of George Orwell's Big Brother, an outsider's view of a Big Brother-ish world.
This is one of the fics I'll keep coming back to.

Nice team fic. Really enjoyed the premise with the grey, work-obsessed society and, of course, that elevator! Also great to see Teyla and Carson get into the action. Good job with this!

The plot thickens. Peril at every turn. Nice reveal at the end!

Yes, I remember this chapter! Nicely done. Rodney meets Joseiah, and John and Ronon have giggles with the sex-guns! Very intriguing. I shall read on...

This was a fabulous, complex story. Shocked to see something this good on

I had a "Pleasantville" flashback with the colours appearance freaking/aweing the crowd.
This is a really indepth story with a lot of issues to contemplate. I like the Star Trek refernces and the desperation of a society that has essentially backed itself into a corner; stuck in the past, unwilling to change itself. Very creative how you have portrayed that and how it has affected Rodney.
Being an artist isn't just limited to music...
Cheers Kam :)

What a terrible waste yet he is now free. Rodney has made a difference and unfortunately it's not the kind he wanted.
This is such an emotional chapter and I like the ethical dilemma/conflict in this story.
| angw chapter 5 . 11/30/2006
Holy Hannah. What a wicked wicked web you have weaved *grins* A lot of moral implications here and the team stuck bang in the middle of it.

My spidey sense is tingling. There's something wrong with this place...
