| Vadercat chapter 3 . 2/1
Kind of a sad story. Though John made peace at the end, I kept hoping he'd get to stay. But I liked the story, wonder what David would have thought about Atlantis.

I enjoyed this very much! It was heartbreaking, bittersweet, joyous and had a very satisfying ending. I thought you kept everyone in character. Thank you for keeping this still posted and easily found. It was recced over on SGAstoryfinders.

AHhhh. Even though I think It is quite sad that he moved on with his life... from Atlantis and everyone from the expedition. I just have to say. It was really nice to see an another POV of how things could have ended or developed.
And have to admit, he really DO fit in the normal life as well and he have really earned it. He's sacrified to much..(Okay now u probably think...jesus man! He ain't real...But to be honest for me Sheppard and Atlantis/SG-1 had an great impact on me while growing up..So yeah its very important/real.)
And glad there are people who is willingly to write and share their POV and story.
Sorry for my gabble :D

Ok this was hard to review. On the one hand it is very well written. I love all stories that have Dave in them because the relationship is important to John. I read the entire story because I wanted to know what happened to John and his friends but for me the storyline was disappointing. I feel that even with his injury there should have been some way for John to stay on Atlantis,he was Mensa after all,lol. I cried buckets when I read the letters that John wrote to his friends. While this was a good story to me it went way off of the SGA feel.

I really don't know if I want to continue reading, this is just too sad. Makes me think he'll never see home again.

I enjoyed every minute of this story but at the same time it leaves a bitter taste. It's hard to accept John anywhere but Atlantis. Still great job though.

Wow, I really had to break out the Kleenex on this one. I have really mixed feelings about the direction you took the story, but you wrote it so plausibly I found myself carried along. Is there a sequel?

i love it
| Target Zero chapter 3 . 7/26/2010
What an awsome story! Although I'm sad it's done. I wished you could give us one more chapter were John tells David about Atlantis and everything. Wonderful story. Well done!

ah darn..I wanted to see daves reaction the aliens and stuff ...bummer lol
| formertrekker chapter 3 . 5/6/2010
I sorry but it's obvious why there arn't more reviews,most of us can't see any way John would give in this fast. I can see him developing his realationship with David but not leaving Atlantis, not when he still had so much to give just with his gene and besides there is not that much physical effort in flying Jumpers. Not to say you didn't produce a very powerful story I just can't see it ending this way.A cubicle..NOT!
| brainchild chapter 3 . 5/2/2010
oh my goodness. why do you only have twenty-nine reviews for this story? It's so brilliantly done. The details and the relationships and the growth in the characters was subtle and powerful. I think that the relationship between the brothers was terribly compelling. The scene with them going to the playhouse was probably my favorite, just for that moment when John remembered that his father hadn't even bought popcorn. And yet you managed to make even Patrick Sheppard relateable, with Claire saying he wasn't perfect, but he was trying his best.
I loved Lorne, and I loved Lorne learning about John through interaction with the team. I loved the team. And the letters John sent were painful yet wonderful.
Great, great job.

I did enjoy this and you are a great writer but I could never see John walk away from Atlantis so easily. His team are his family and Atlantis was his home. I also could never see him taking a desk job. I'm surprised he wasnt allowed to stay on Atlantis as an advisory as his ATA gene is still invaluable to them. I liked that he developed a good relationship with his brother but John is just to different from Dave to ever be happy sitting behind a desk.
