Summary: Three discussions that took place after the main events of Enemy at the Gate

1. Teyla and John


"Hey Teyla. What do you think of the view?"

"It is lovely."

"... Ok. What's wrong?"

"Is it true that the IOA will not permit the city to return to New Lantea?"

"Uh. I don't know. I don't think they've started to think about it yet."

"Without the city in Pegasus, we are unable to reach any of the gates there."


"This is unacceptable."

"Well, Teyla, I don't think we're going to get to make that decision..."

"I think of the city as my home, John, as you know. But my home is also with my son, and Torren is not here. He is there."


"I'm glad we have discussed this, John."

"Yeah. Uh, me too."

2. Rodney and John

"A nuke? Seriously? Jesus, John! I can't leave you alone for five minutes!"

"It was the only way, Rodney."

"So you keep telling me. Every. Single. Time. And what the hell does it say about you that there's been enough of those times for me to be talking about them in the plural? I mean, what is it? Does the radiation trip some sort of suicidal lemming instinct in your brain that says 'fly to hive ship, press detonate'?"

"Lemmings don't suicide."

"That's because they have more self-preservation instincts than YOU!"

"Look, it was that or lose Earth, ok? What would you have done?"

"Sabotage all their systems so that when they launched the darts or attempted to fire they'd blow up themselves, evidently, since that is what I was doing when you were about to trigger the bomb!"

"Yeah, well, that wasn't one of my options."

"Fine. Fine. But from now on, the nukes are strictly off limits to you."

"Rodney, shut up."

3. Rodney and Radek

"Radek! Oh, thank god!"

"I am glad we were able to make it in time, Rodney. It is good to see you too."

"Hey - wait a minute. How the hell did you make it this fast? It should have taken you hours more to get here, maybe days!"

"Now, Rodney..."

"The wormhole drive! You went to Woolsey with the wormhole drive! I can't believe you! I told you that drive wasn't ready. You probably didn't even wait for the gate to close, did you?"

"I did, actually. But pretty much immediately after, I admit it!"

"You could have destroyed the city! Jennifer was in the city!"

"Doctor Keller is in city, but Colonel Sheppard is on Earth. You are on hive ship. Would you really have chosen otherwise?"


"I thought not. This way, you can blame me for risking our city to save your miserable life."

"You're going to gloat forever, aren't you?"

"Pretty much, yes. For now, I go to check the power systems and undo my magnificent patchwork to the drive."


"Yes, Rodney? You wish to berate me some more?"

"Thank you."

"You are welcome, Rodney."

Hey Skin.

This rocks. Firstly, I love that that you managed to capture the voices of John, Teyla, Radek and Rodney purely with dialogue, with no need for any other kind of description. I'd have even been to able to identify them *without* any names at all, so fab job getting in their heads. Or mouths... whatever. :D

I love this idea, too because you make a lot of good points!

Firstly, YEAH! Torren! He's not there! That's a darn good point! *Laughs* Teyla and Ronon may have signed up for the fight, but not necessarily for living it out on Earth. I am also slightly biased because I want Atlantis to go back to Pegasus, but shush. Teyla agrees with me. I love that John firstly recognises that there is something wrong, even when Teyla doesn't say it, then pretty much gets steamrollered over and then doesn't quite know what to say. *Laughs* Awesome. I love Teyla!

Rodney and Shep - well, I have to say... go RODNEY! I am glad someone calls him on his ridiculous urges to sacrifice himself. That one also cracked me up with the lemming comparison and the silliness of John to bother asking what Rodney would have done; when... yes, he was already working on that and in any case, Rodney is RODNEY. *Laughs* I can pretty much see the hand gestures and epic eye rolls from here. Awesome. Go Rodney. *Loves*

The third one is funny and again, good point. Sneaky, sneaky Zelenka... And they're still bickering, even when it worked. :) I do love that when all is said and done though, McKay says thank you. That's was totally smushy and cute and I want to wrap them in hugs and maybe more (forget Keller. ;)). I totally love their relationship. *Squees*

This was a great little piece (or trio of pieces)... I think that you should make me happy and write about what happens next. Or I could just settle for more SGA!fic of yours in general. You always describe everything just in the right way, so it feels like I am watching for real. That way, even if I don't get to see our guys on my laptop screen any more, at least I get to see them up in my head. :)

Thanks for sharing.

This is a lovely tag to the episode. I love how well you capture everyone's voices, Rodney's in particular. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you! I'm glad you thought I got Rodney right.
