Author's notes: Major thanks for various combinations of betaing, audiencing, and cheerleading to beadattitude, fish_echo, kimberlyfdr, winkingstar, and M. (It takes a village, heh.) Also, thanks to le_mot_mo for her support throughout the process, and for the absolutely gorgeous art.
Summary: "There's not a cloud in the sky, Colonel," Rodney said, and John had just enough time to register Teyla's look of concern, Ronon's frown, and Rodney's suddenly colorless eyes before everything went black.
Artist's notes: It was great fun to work together with propinquitine. :o) We first decided on three main colours that we would use in both fic and artwork. propinquitine then wrote the first draft of her fic and sent it to me. I created artwork for it and sent the artwork back to her. Based on the artwork she then rewrote some parts and added an ending.
