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.

Great story. Zombie brain coral!, very creepy (not only "relatively mild".) Especially the scene where Rodney has to cut it out of his hand *shudders*, and trapped at the bottom of the ocean! Yay for Zelenka´s big red button and shark repellant. (Which is just one example of the many details why I loved this story. Nautilus and Athosian naming and marble cake.)
The character voices were excellent. I particularly liked that you show that Jennifer can be just as socially awkward as Rodney. I can´t imagine the three of them racing cars together, but at least she´s trying.

Thank you very much! I'm glad that you liked it; I was a little worried that the part where Rodney cuts the coral out of his hand would be a little too gory ... especially for a Christmas story. *g*

I thought that you wrote that scene very well, it was quite controled (it is very easy at a point liek that to go overboard and start describing everything). I particulalry liked the way that you kept it tight, and that in doing that you enhanced the character of Mckay more. McKay doesn't always realise that in dire situations he can and will step up to the plate and do the necessary. I often get the impression it surprises the hell out of him everytime. This was very well implied by the scene:)
