I Love This (and am pimping to my McShep fan friends). I especially love "until the extra funding had come through and the faculty refused to let him near young, impressionable minds again, in almost that order" for its sheer Rodneyness.
*beams* Thank you so! I'm really glad you like this -- the funding line is one of my favourites. (And I'm so flattered you're pimping it. Thanks for letting me know!)
But I must respect their Beckettian dictates while I am among them.
Was the point where I stopped laughing like a drain and started to actually asphyxiate from giggling, so I had to read the second half twice. Even better the second time.
Now you understand why I lured you into this fandom, yes? So you could flatter my ego. *nods*
This was definitely great; the characterizations, particularly Teyla and Zelenka, really worked and were a pretty damn good foil for everyone else. Awesome job.
Thank you! That's really good to hear -- I had so much fun writing Teyla and Zelenka's lines.
Thank you for making me laugh! I loved this from start to finish.
Favorite bit: "Don't you have trials to run or prayers to chant backwards?" Rodney asked Carson, but his heart wasn't in it. What was the point of being given a whole-team intervention if no one on said team would waggle their eyebrows at you? Heh.
*beams* And thank you for letting me know -- I'm really glad this made you laugh!
Well developed, with incredibly funny one-liners scattered in there. I must quote one of my favourites: He made a two-handed gesture that could have been hit on you while under the influence, or, if he was honest, flew to the mainland using only three hairgrips and a whistle. So, so Rodney. Wonderful characterisations. And of course, wonderful story!
Oh, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked this, and the three hairgrips line is one of my favourites, too. :)
Hee! Yay. Also, Beckettian dictates = ♥.
Oh, this was lovely, and it's totally your fault that I laughed so hard, several times, that I think I pulled something.
I'll happily take the blame for such injuries! Thank you! I'm so pleased this made you laugh.

Hee. That was hilarious :)
*beams* Thank you kindly!
hehe. That's just priceless. I love the liberal use of "blah" and the ridiculousness of it all. :)
"Just huh, Rodney," said Sheppard, drawing out his name to have eighteen syllables and a diphthong. *norts*
*grins* Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed this.
This was lovely -- sweet and funny and Rodney was just a riot, with him utterly clueless and... yeah. Lovely :)
I did, I'll admit, shake my head occasionally while I was writing this and then mutter "Oh, Rodney" to myself. *grins sheepishly*
Thank you so much. I'm really glad you liked this!
How has no-one mentioned Then there was meat surprise in the canteen. Rodney was obediently surprised and went back for seconds. yet? Oh, Rodney.
I giggled (litterally, it shames me to say) my way through this. (But there was some (wo)manly laughing too! And a few strange wheezing noises, but we won't mention them.)
And Ford! Damn, it's moments like this I realise how much I miss him. Aw.
Teyla was awesome too. Beckettian! (The Lord Our Carson is a Vengeful Carson!)
In short, I loved it.
*grins* I have so much love for him. I'm glad it came across.
Thanks so much for this comment -- I'm really pleased my fic made you laugh, and, yeah, Ford.
Heeh! Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked this.
I love the Beckettian religion. And how gloriously oblivious Rodney is to what's actually going on with John.
I had such fun deciding new brilliantly, gloriously wrong theories for Rodney to come up with regarding Sheppard's behaviour. *grins* Thank you for your comment -- I'm glad you liked this!
