Author's Notes: Thank you to astridv for the excellent (and fast!) beta.

Summary: John is dealing with his teammates' love lives just like any other emotional issue: by ignoring the situation and hoping it goes away. But when a mission gone wrong traps John, Rodney and Jennifer a thousand feet beneath New Lantea's ocean -- injured and out of touch with Atlantis, with the clock running down and a mysterious enemy in pursuit -- they're either going to have to work out their differences ... or die trying.

Oh, hurrah! *such* a romp! I really like the way you write Jennifer. Rodney and John were so themselves, poor dears! And the monster(s) were terrifying and very original. Thanks so much for writing!!

Thank you very much! I'm very glad you liked it; I did wonder what had gotten into me, writing a zombie story for Christmas, but it was too much fun not to. *g*

Thank you very much! I'm so glad you liked it -- and oh man, I am so behind on reading your stories that it just isn't funny. (Behind on everything, really ... including answering comments!) I keep saying I'm going to get through my Genficathon reading list from last year before I open signups for the new one, but that's looking increasingly unlikely ...

Ah, thanks for even thinking of me! I can completely understand heing behind on answering comments! I've got a fic reading list as long as my arm (and I've got long arms ) But I'm on vacation for the next week, so I hope to catch up on at least some of it. Again, your story was great!

This story is absolutely terrific! I really enjoyed reading it.

The setting would make a terrific one-off game of Traveler or something -- maybe even Cthulhu. I loved the fact that there was a plot (evil brain-coral!) and a subplot (John feels left-out!) and I loved the way they were both resolved. One of the coolest things about your stories is that I can, you know, talk about them to my friends and kids LOL! Keller is as cool and ador(k)able in this story as she always *should* have been on the show. I loved the way you did all the characters. The ending was very cute!

Yay!!!

Thank you so much! I'm thrilled that you liked it! It would make a good game setting, wouldn't it? And I'm very glad you liked my Keller! :)

Oh, wow, I cannot believe I missed this story when you first posted it! And my first thought when I stumbled upon this story was: *gasp!* A long story from friendshipper I haven't read before? And it has John and Rodney? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! :o)

This story was awesome. I've been wanting a story that deals with Sheppard being the only single left of his team. This is exactly what I had in mind, because really, how could Sheppard not feel left out and awkward when all his friends are starting to settle down? I thought you handled this very nicely, keeping everyone perfectly in-character.

And the plot! Very gripping, suspenseful and exciting. And a little creepy ;o) I loved how all three of them contributed to them getting out of there safely, and I also really liked that though hurt, Sheppard wasn't entirely incapacitated.

So, long story short: thanks so much for such a wonderful story!

*bounces* Thank you so much for the wonderful review! :> I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply, but this did make me squee, too. It was so much fun to write my sweet boys again, and I'm really delighted that you enjoyed it!

That was a real great story! Totally loved it. You voiced out the characters pretty well. I could totally hear and see them before my inner eye. Well done! I can see Sheppard react like you discribed it. Afraid to lose his friends put unable to talk about it. That's so Sheppard, in my opinion.
And the story was great. It was creepy and exciting and totally sweet from time to time. :) Evil-Zombie-Scientist was a great and real eerie idea. *smile* Corals as evil of doom... I wish I had your fantasy. ^.~ The whole package was just great. ^_____^ Couldn't stop reading until I was finished. ^^
