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.

( Devil and the Deep Blue Sea )

I really love stories where a friendship doesn't end when one of the friends in question gets married. It happens far too often in Real Life and I'm really not fond of having to see it happen in fanfiction, too. Meaning, I loved how you resolved the situation with John feeling estranged because all his friends are in steady relationships now or on the best way to it. Somehow, I'm beginning to think he and Jennifer will get along great after taking the final hurdles. ;-) I enjoyed the action, the h/c, and the creepiness lots, too, and the ending was just perfect. *g* This story definitely just made my day - as someone else said, I feel as if I've just gotten a late Christmas present, even though this story wasn't written for me. :D

*nods* It's not an easy situation to deal with, and I wanted to give the characters an opportunity to work through it ... in their own emotionally constipated way, of course. *g* I do think they've laid the foundations for a good future; they've still got work to do, but they all care about each other and I definitely think their future looks bright! And thank you very much for the comment; I'm very happy that you enjoyed it. :)
