Summary:

The way back turned out to be longer than Rodney had imagined. AU from Trinity. Spoilers for Instinct and Aurora.

Why You Should Read This:

This is a brilliant read for post-Trinity. It’s whumpage for McKay, yes, but it really highlights the issues with that episode and subsequent handling of the storyline.
It does start off with McKay/OFC, but honestly that isn’t the point of the story, and it end with McKay/Sheppard.

  2. I love this story, that speech by Rodney made an emotional impact and reminded everyone else about casting stones and taking a look at themselves in mirror.

  4. This is one of my all time favorite stories in any fandom and I keep coming back and rereading it every few months. I quite literally cry a lot every time I read it, I can’t help it as it hurts so much. I keep thinking I won’t the next time I come back to it but I always end up bawling and I am not usually that emotional. Very beautifully written, hurts like hell to read but so worth it.
