Whether you take this as overt ship, subtle ship, or just plain friendshippy, it's your interpretation. ;) I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this fic while roaming Wraithbait.com, which turned out to be a superb story with action, mystery, and a great M/W story with a touchingly protective Rodney. Very well written, good pacing, and it played out like an episode. Good interactions between Rodney/Elizabeth, Elizabeth/John and Rodney/John. I loved how the author jumped back and forth between scenes with Sheppard worried back in Atlantis and the Rodney/Elizabeth scenes. Her interactions were spot on.
