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.

Excellent story! I could read this over and over again. I thought you handled the characterizations of all three really well. It was fascinating to look at how the changing dynamics affected John and his struggle to deal with it was so true to his character. After five years on Atlantis, of course the characters are going to change and their circumstances will shift, they'll get into and out of relationships, and have lives outside of the core team. Everyone's reactions to that situations felt very real. I've never really thought much about McKay and Keller's relationship - it was just kind of there, in the episodes. This story really gave that relationship some depth and I finally clicked on why they are together. They are alike in alot of ways, and them being with each other makes sense here. I wish we could have seen something like this in an actual episode!

The brain coral was great! I love the whole idea of the underwater research station, and the not-really-sentient life pursuing them. Zombies! Freakishly awesome. Thank you for this story!!

Thank you very much! I'm especially glad that the story made you see McKay and Keller's relationship in a new light -- one of the things I really love about fanfic is getting to work through the characters and their relationships in my own head, and figure out what makes them tick. Thank you very much for the feedback!
