Summary: With Atlantis adrift in the Milky Way and on the verge of losing all power, the expedition is desperate to find a way to save the city.    The potential for help once again comes from an unlikely source− Todd, who’s desperate to save himself from starvation.  The offer, however, comes with a dangerous string attached for Sheppard, one that could jeopardize the lives of his entire team as they hatch a plan to travel back to Pegasus where a new Wraith Queen has set her sights on Todd’s Wraith alliance and domination of the galaxy.  With the fate of Atlantis in the balance, the team must contend not only with the Devil they know, but also the new one that they don’t.

It is now available here at the Beyond Atlantis Virtual Season 6 website.

It's over 40,000 words and has *20* gorgeous illustrations so go, read, admire the artwork, and enjoy!  And huge  thanks to valleya  and annieb1955  for the  wonderful beta and proofread!

Thanks a million for this great episode. I have to say I am a great fan of your work and was delighted to see you writing an episode, which of course lived up to my expectations. What a shame these episodes ae not real instead of virtual and we could enjoy them on screen - they are fantastic stories. But at least this great team is giving all of us fans the opportunity to keep enjoying Stargate Atlantis despite the ending of the TV series. Thanks, thanks and in case I didn't say it clearly enough, thank-you a zillion.

I had been waiting on this episode and you didn't disappoint. It was one of those episodes that when the credits begin to roll, I would be saying WOW lets watch that again now. Great concept with the link between Sheppard and Todd, plenty of action and humor (McKay high on life is hilarious). The team doing what they do best..saving each other. Loved it. And now I'm off to read it again.

One word - Awesome! Excellent episode, you put the "professional" writers to shame. Love the layers and details, the amazing suspense, the humor and the action. This has it all. Great job of incorporating Todd and his Wraith humor, helpful but self serving, and never quite to be trusted. Really added to the suspense of making it home. Nice twists and turns as they had to trust Todd once again, the best laid plans going awry with the team being separated and eek, Rodney being fed on. I couldn't read fast enough to see what would happen next. Excellent characterizations, plot and execution. Wow!!! Terrific, wonderful writing. Thank you so very, very much for this epic and participating in Season 6. Oh if TPTB had an ounce of the love for the series that you and the other members and readers have. I loved this and the series so far. Thank you!!!!

I just finished reading your contribution to the virtual season, and I want to commend you on a job well done. It can be difficult to meld multiple voices into one, coherent point of view. Having read the first two stories, and having read your other work, I was certain I'd like your story, but unsure if your take on the characters would be consistent with the approach of the previous stories. For example, I find your Rodney wittier and more likeable than some other versions of Rodney. I get the sense you genuinely like the character and see beyond the pettines to the "heart of gold" inside. The virtual series thus far was leaning more towards obnoxious arrogant Rodney than sympathetically obnoxious and tolerably arrogant Rodney. You've done a wonderful job of balancing the virtual series approach to Rodney and blending it with your understanding of the character. I felt like I was reading a slighly AU take on your typical version of John and Rodney (and your John and Rodney are my favorite John and Rodney!). Also, the story was well balanced and paced like an actual episode. Your Todd and the Todd/John connection was a clever take on how cannon should have/could have progressed. And the post-restoration Rodney was a blast. I could totally picture this story as an episode, and I can visualize practrically every scene. I love me some Rodney, but I really love me some post-restoration Rodney and his interaction with John, et. al. Thanks so much for your ontributions to this series. I can't wait to read your next SGA offering!

PS While I failed to comment, I loved your recent Rodney/John/Jeanie bank robbers fic. What a fun one!

Thank you for a very entertaining read. This is exactly how I'd like to see the Season 5 arc resolved!

Thanks so much! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the episode. You're right, I do really like Rodney as a character and do see the "heart of gold" that is definitely there. Although, when he is stressed the arrogant, petty Rodney can definitely take over. As to the John and Rodney in this fic, seeing as it was for a virtual season, I tried to remain as true to canon (and gen) as I could. (As a slash writer, than can be tough and alot of my gen does, admittedly, have a much closer John and Rodney than we typically get on screen.) But I'm glad you like it and the bank robbery fic. Thanks again!
