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.

What a fantastic, original idea: BRAIN coral! Ha! I had images from Pirates of the Caribbean - the crew all turned into coral and barnacles and crabs. And it proves that the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies thing wasn't a fluke: you CAN add zombies to good literature. Which, of course, this was. I have always had a small soft spot for Rodney and Jennifer. It was only Keller's heavy overuse at the loss of other characters that used to pee me off. But you wrote them just as I imagine them- Geek Love. Packaging it all with a loverly ribbon of Sheppard whumpage wrapped around it just made it even more awesome. Kudos!

Thank you very much! With the emotional territory I was exploring, I felt like I was taking a bit of a chance writing this, and I'm really delighted that people seemed to like it. (I did find myself wondering as I wrote it whether or not zombies are really appropriate in a Christmas story, but they really wanted to be in there for some reason. *g*)
