Synopsis: Rodney and John, snarky, sarky and sweet.
Review: I've tended away from Stargate fanfic for a while, but I have rediscovered my love of the Universe through the new show and my ongoing love for McKay. And I have to say, much as I love him with Sam, he's even better with Sheppard, who seems to get him in the way that Sam can't and isn't phased or irritated by him. In short, John throws the snark back, understanding what's underneath it, and rolls with the verbal punches, and The Grrl captures their banter wonderfully here. This is the way I can see a relationship between the two of them - both covering up their fears with sarcasm; Rodney's all bitter vitriol, John's half ironic and self-deprecating, and all the while watching the reaction closely.
I am so loving this show! Enough to even venture into Area 52 in search of some fic.
