 Why You Should Read This:

I’d forgotten about this gem, one of my favorite SGA stories.  The author used elements of The Game Players of Titan by Philip K. Dick  to create an interesting (if not very nice) society.  The story is well written, especially the sex scenes.

Rodney is just plain wonderful in this, smart and vicious. His desperate desire to free an amnesiac!John requires a drastic plan that is completely and utterly Rodney.
