I'm rating them all "R", just in case, but chapter 1 is fairly tame. Many thanks to my beta readers for their lovely comments and suggestions!
2. Chapter 2 by Izzybaz [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarhalf-star (1626 words)
Still rating them all "R", but this one really is completely clean. Again, thanks to my betas!

This was by far the most difficult chapter so far for me to write, hence the delay!

And she hasn't abandoned the story after all! I have included a brief "Previously on" to refresh everyone's memories. Reminder...this story was began before "Common Ground", so nothing that occured in that episode applies.

Previously on Babel: Elizabeth receives intel on a powerful ally from the Genii (takes place after Coup d'Etat). Although skeptical, John agrees to follow up on it, although he lobbies to wait for Teyla (who is busy with an Athosian dispute on the mainland). Elizabeth elects to accompany the team instead as this is an important alliance. Once they arrive (on a planet with technology similar to Earth) Elizabeth is abducted. John pursues but is also captured by this race of people who they cannot understand. This race of humans doesn't speak any language that either Elizabeth or John can understand. After a few days imprisonment, they are rescued by a local man who turns out to be the leader of a resistance movement. Their world appears to be in some sort of civil war. They are taken to a huge tower that resides in the middle of a lake. Once inside the tower they are able to perfectly understand the man who rescued them and all of his people. The tower also seems to contain a blend of Atlantean and local (Abrecan) technology and language. Oh...and John and Elizabeth have discovered and for the most part admitted they have feelings for each other.

Sorry this has taken so long...real life is jam packed! I've got more on the way, next chapter is almost done.
