A/N: This was the FIC THAT WILL NOT END so, Vipersweb, I hope you don't mind the length. Special thanks go out to C, my beta; M, my idea-off-bouncer; and L, who is many things, but most relevantly here, my source for all things Mobile Suit Gundam-related. All my information about MRE menus is from MREinfo.com.

Oh wow, you had me laughing and laughing, but then one exchange right at the end had me honestly tearing up.

"It was hard, to learn to think again beyond the next day and the next meal, to rely upon others and let them rely upon me. It was hard to admit...to imagine...I have wanted this for some time, John, but I did not know how to say it to you, or whether it was even possible. If you would want it. If I was whole enough to have it."

I just want to hug her, so badly.

This is fantastic. I love how canon is twisted and turned sideways - the Genii waking the Wraith. Ladon and Sora defecting. Ronon and Melena taking out Kel. John's crazy upbringing. Teyla-the-runner and the slow-burning romance. Especially Teyla. I *love* stories where she's socially awkward.

Thank you! All I had to work with on Mensa!Teyla was Rod's line that she's hard to talk to, so I decided to take that to its logical extreme. I'm glad it worked for you!
