I already read this once but I had to read it again. it is so well done. Excellent for so many reasons. perfectly in character, plays out like an actual episode, great writing and habit forming creations. You should be very proud. Miss Sparky everyday but ir helps to read beautiful realistic stories like this. Thanks for bringing them back to us

Very very cool. I love how you describe their heat and discomfort so vividly I can almost feel it myself (and considering it has just turned winter here, that's an accomplishment!). The arguments over who drinks the water are just so *them* it's perfect. I love the bit about the citrus shampoo and the possibility it's a McKay-deterrent! The line "Light smacks him in the face" is such a wonderful description of the effect of light on dark-adapted eyes that I am almost jealous :) The conversation they have in the aftermath on the balcony is brilliant; not a lot is actually said out loud yet such a lot is said. And I love the teasing (and embarrassment) about the ring! A lovely, fun note to end on.
In short, this is a wonderful, wonderful fic. Thank you for writing it!
