Wow. Nice work. Good job, my favorite part was where John was having the flashback to meeting the other Elizabeth. It was a nice read.
So, now that he's going to come out in the open, what will people's reactions be? And why do I have a nasty feeling that there's going to be individuals on Earth that are going to have less than altruistic ideas as to what to do with John?
Again, good job and I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter!

Ohhhh Jeez... I'm really, really split about such a decision...
Great chapter though!

Excellent, just excellent! Such a beautifully written chapter, you can just see it all happen before your eyes! Spot on reactions with the team and it was quite interesting to see the whole "wraithspawn" explanation.
Thank you for another great chapter and please keep up the good work! Can't wait to read more! :)

What a brilliant chapter! I am still up at 02:30hrs because I could not wait and it kept me hooked from beginning to end. I loved the description of John's face. It was so incredibly easy to form a picture in my mind and I was fascinated by everyone's reactions. Teyla and Ronon's revulsion was surprising - his response to them pulling their guns on him was possibly extreme but I could understand it.
However, Elizabeth's acceptance was quite beautifully realised, as was her instinct to go after him and the conversation in which he explained why he wore the mask.
However, I was not at all expecting for John to reveal his past to Elizabeth and show her the older version of herself. It was a complete surprise - a welcome one at that. It was as if her treatment of him after seeing his face made him accept that she really could be trusted as he had hoped.
And thank goodness for Carson - he has been able to excuse Elizabeth's slip because he did the research she did and everyone will probably assume that she she found out his name in the same way.
This was just wonderful. I am very much looking forward to the next chapter. Thank you.

Good to see an update! So now they know what John looks like...sad to imagine that handsome face all twisted like that... : (. Will John explain to Elizabeth how he came to be disfigured ? I am not sure if you revealed that already in the story or not?! Look forward to more!

Wow. Nice work! Well worth the wait. Love the reveal.

This story is getting good.
| Rayclash chapter 43 . 8/2/2013
Thank you for another great chapter! Such suspense you are building up! :)
As for your question, I'd say if it is mostly going to follow cannon then I'd say jump ahead, but that is just my two cents!
Please keep up the good work! :)

Another cool chapter. It made complete sense to me that John would be the one to take the dive. Also loved their talking over the radio and that their relationship they have is sort of bleeding into 'reality' now, so to speak.
As for your question, I'll admit to being somewhat torn. I would love to hear the conversation between John and Elizabeth when they split into pairs (if they end up together of course) but then I don't need the rest if it follows canon. But, John being unmasked is going to be very interesting indeed - don't suppose there's a way you can do both!?

If the rescue of Jack and Woolsey is canon to the episode, then I vote for going straight to their capture and John's unmasking?! Loving this story by the way! Love the changes you make to fit your AU!
| Sparky She-Demon chapter 43 . 7/29/2013
Jump straight to them being captured and John being unmasked! Please do that.
Very nice chapter, I liked it a lot.

I have loved this story since the beginning and been an eager follower. Its not often these days that a story manages to capture my interest, especially a WIP, so you've really got something here. Keep up the good work!
Personally, I'm in favour of a good build up. Build up the tension, the suspense. That's what this is all about, yes? It's taken us this long to get this far, what's a few more chapters?
Besides, (1) its been ages since I watched the episode so a memory refresh is always good; (2) I love a good bait-and-switch; and (3) I'd love to see if having the Phantom there changes anything... It probably won't, but some suspense never hurt me, and a cliffie or two never goes astray. :)
Anyway, those are a few of my thoughts. Take them for what you will.

Wow, another great chapter. I have loved this unique take on SGA from the beginning. Thank you for updating.
| Annelantis chapter 42 . 7/20/2013
Another great chapter. I really was hoping you would take the direction of John meeting O'Neill so was pleased to see that you did. And, as expected, they got on pretty well. Woolsey is good as the foil as well.
That Elizabeth is the one in charge of the rescue effort is also an interesting twist (though it makes sense, as there is no military presence) and I can't wait to see how different things may be with her in control. I, obviously have my own ideas but your story has me imagining so many different scenarios that could happen. I think that is the power of your stories: they really implant themselves in my mind and make me think of what could lie ahead.
I really can't wait for John and Elizabeth's reunion. Thanks again.
