I cried the first time I saw this episode and you made me cry again.

This is beautiful.
Obsessed Pam chapter 1 . 2/2/2008
This was utterly poignant and so full of the aching pain of Sheppard and then Teyla that it felt as if it could be touched. It left me feeling exhausted, as if I too were experiencing this too terrible loss.

Oh. My. GOD! That was so... unbelievably... the words cdon't come to mind. Amazing doesn't quite cover it.


Thank you for sharing..

Nicely done! You wrote the ethos of grief very well!

*sniffle* well damn... *blows nose*

that was heartwrenching... horrible, yet a beautiful portrayal of grief in all its desperation and illogic... of all its pain...

thank you for this...

as sad (or trite) as it sounds I think this would be helpful for fans to read - to start to deal with their own reactions to the loss of Carson... I know I was shocked, stunned when it happened and I think I felt much like Sheppard did when he said it hadn't hit him yet... by the end of the episode I found myself asking over and over 'why?'

you've delved into the depths of an individual's grief - pain, anguish, guilt, fear and so much more and you've made both John Sheppard and Carson Beckett so much more real for us all...

I look forward to reading more of your fics - I do love your 'A World of Hurt' stories and am anticipating more, or at the least *hoping* for more - so many of the eps - especially those in the lastest season are in need of your touch - i.e. 'Submersion' - poor John - his mind in the iron grip of the wraith queen, swept out of the jumper into the hall by a blast of icy cold water, bounced around for who knows how long (would've been a pretty damned good beating if it also knocked out Ronon and the Queen), then the long arduous journery to and back from the wraith ship via those suits... (and this was on top of piloting the jumper for hours in search of the underwater drilling platform) it would be a wonder if he could even move after he laid down to rest at the end... or 'Vengeance' poor John slammed into the wall by the creature that Ronon cut the arm off off, John roughed up by the creature that came up behind him as he spoke with Michael... yet thru all that he still managed to figure out how to save his team and get them off that world and back to Atlantis...

It is so sad! Carson's gone! Why why why...did they have to kill him off! Awsome story! It is so so sad!

Oh very well done, caught the emotion and how it would've been if the ep had not ended where it did, so exactly. JT just how you'd imagine.

Hey, Ali!

That was really very beautifully written. You sent me all the way sobbing convulsively again, not that I ever stopped since...

You perfectly caught the atmosphere of desparation and grief. This is exactly what I would have imagined from John, with the best line being 'his throat tight with tears he doesn’t know how to shed'.

I thought it was very cute that in the end he finally managed to mourn together with Teyla.

And as you already depicted in your story, Atlantis will never be the same without Carson; and yet, they have to somehow move on and even replace him with someone else, no matter how much that hurts.

There will never be the like of him again... *cheers, Carson*

Oh, this was just gorgeous. You captured their individual characters so well. I just love seeing them through your eyes. THANK YOU!

That was beautiful. You expressed John's greif wonderfully and added a perfect view into the J/T relationship. I look forward to reading more of your work.
Ryan C. Charles chapter 1 . 1/18/2007
This was really, really nice. In addition, I needed this tag. You have no idea. I saw John doing and thinking exactly what you wrote, the way you wrote it. You got my heartstrings with this one. Thanks for writing this.
spiritedchihiro chapter 1 . 1/18/2007
Fabulously written! What a way to finish an episode!

I truly believe that a tag like that could in all possibility occur and not seem completely out of character...

It makes sense for teyla and john to lean on each other emotionally..

well done! and thanks!

Spoilers below!

Hey, just wanted to let you know that it's a good story. But you do know that Carson doesn't die in Sunday right? He's still in the series for sure until after the ark, and he isn't going to die, he disappears.

just wanted to see if you knew or not.
