Rodney keeps waiting for Sheppard to round everyone up for a debriefing, a meeting, something to remind everyone of their places. He waits, but it doesn’t happen. The closest thing to an official command is when Elizabeth asks Rodney to draw up plans for a shelter to fit the Atlantis team during their stay. Part of him wants to protest—it’s too permanent—but he’s tired of crawling out of his tent every morning and sitting, miserable and aching, at the breakfast table while Teer serves up plates of her nut bread with light, graceful steps. She always gives Sheppard the largest piece, and touches his arm as she serves him.

Words (almost) fail me here. Utterly awesome characterization of both Rodney and John, brought along by their involuntarily prolonged stay in the Ancients' safe haven.

"We all have our breaking point," John says tightly, in a low, dangerous voice that usually shuts people up. But Rodney is not other people, so he nods intently and looks distractedly around the room as though he can find a better answer there.
"And yours is...what, exactly?"

The general idea alone is worth reading this fic -- times a thousand if you take the scarily accurate characterization of John into account. In the aftermath of the enzyme disaster (with that AU spin on it), Rodney is dealing with the damage his addiction has done, to John's continuing ignorance as to why he is affected by this so much. An amazing fic.
