Here are some other suggestions:maybe there was a civil war on their planet. I don't remember if Phoebus & Thalen were from the same planet though(it's been awhile since I watched the episode). Another thought:how much like the Genii are their peoples? We've seen what the Genii are like. Maybe Phoebus' & Thelan's peoples were the same way for some reason.
Author's Response: I'm operating on the premise that there was a civil war on their planet, without Wraith- or any other outside- involvement; hope you like what I've come up with
Good job, interesting comparision of the different ways Sumner and John related to the team, I can't wait until the next chapter!
Author's Response: Glad you liked the John/Sumner comparision; that's going to be featuring a bit more before this story finishes...
I'm sooo happy you're back! I thoroughly enjoyed the first story and was hoping you'd come back soon to get our heroes out of the limbo they found themselves in.
I know the reasoning behind why the military are reacting the way they are and I love that Elizabeth can't quite wrap her head around her feelings for John.
As for John, he loves her and is willing to do almost anything to ensure her happiness.
Very much looking forward to the next bit. Tan :)
I don't know why they see John as a threat. He's been saving their butts. You'd think they'd be grateful.
Author's Response: It's the whole 'military mentality' thing, really; while they ARE grateful to John for helping them, the fact remains that they don't know WHY he's helping them, leaving them increasingly concerned about why he's going to these lengths to keep THEM in the city after going to so much effort to keep the Genii and the Wraith out as they fear he has some ulterior motive. (Which, in all fairness, he DOES have; it's just that his 'ulterior motive' relates to the fact that he's in love with Elizabeth rather than any kind of hostile intent)
