Summary by the author:
Missing scenes for "The Last Man" "It doesn't sound so bad." Untold parts of Rodney's story preceding his idea.

Why This Must Be Read:
Rodney's voice is down pat, it encapsulates his guilt and longing and need to fix this so well. I even liked Jennifer Keller in this.


( snippet of fic )



Occasionally Rodney allows himself to imagine a future so far ahead that nothing they're doing now will matter as anything more than a story. Imagines how Sheppard will be feted—Atlantis is millions of years old and might yet last a million more, and with this in mind he pictures Sheppard coming through the gate, to an Atlantis filled with their descendants across two thousand generations. "John Sheppard," they will tell him, laughing at the ancient legend coming true. "We've been waiting for you!"

Thank you so much for the rec!
You're welcome. It's such a wonderful look into Rodney's mind during this time, done so well.
It is such an amazing episode. I'm glad it's inspired such fantastic fic!
One of my top 5 episodes for sure. I can only wish I could write something this wonderful about it.
The fic I am most proud of writing was a Last Man tag. It's such a painful episode and hard to do it justice.
Could I beg you for a link to yours please?
Sure, if you'd like! I'm sorry, I didn't mean to turn this into a self-pimp.

The Work of Mourning
No apology needed. We're always on the look out for more fic to read. It's what this comm is all about after all :) Thank you for the link!
