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.

Well, I already thanked you for the rec way back in the mists of time, so now let me thank you for the long comment. :)

This is a story I've been wanting to tell for a while. I enjoy writing straightforward adventure gen, but I also enjoy writing stories about complicated human relationships, including the complex interplay between friends and lovers and families. Some of my first stories in other fandoms were that sort; I think SGA is the only fandom where I've been more or less exclusively a gen writer ... okay, not entirely, but *much* more than in other fandoms -- the difference, though, is that most of my previous fandoms had canon sexual relationships to work with, and I always enjoyed weaving adventure plots in and out of the characters' personal lives.

So the idea of exploring this aspect of the characters' lives was very interesting to me! I was worried, however, that the story wouldn't be able to find an audience, since it's a kind of unusual thing for SGA fandom -- and I think your rec helped a lot with that. :)

Thanks again for taking a chance on this!
