SGA Fic: Bullets by the Door  
So, I don't know if this counts as fusion or *what* but I had a long talk with seperis about how John reminds me of Prince Andrew in War & Peace, which then led inevitably to fic, as I wrote to prove my point. I feel like this isn't even really a story, so much as me proving a point. But here you are.

Title: Bullets by the Door
Author: nifra_idril
Summary: Afghanistan was fucking beautiful.
Thanks to seperis, and to Patrick Park for the title from his song of the same title. Title, title, title. Woot.

God, this is amazing. I haven't read War and Peace, so I can't speak for the Prince Andrew parallel, but it's a gorgeous picture of John. Definitely one for the Memories. :)

Wow..this story is the embodiment of the Sheppard I watch every week. Just amazing.

ooooh, pretty

...that's all I can really say. This is a beautiful look at his backstory, and a believable one, and, really, just, oooooh, pretty.

wonderful. his isolation, and then when it changes but doesn't, not really, and the peace, and his response, and it totally sets him up to really like Antarctica.

rockstar! thank you for writing this!

Wow. *totally speechless*

I really don't know what to say besides 'Wow'.

Love your insight into Sheppard, how 'leave no man behind' is more than a line to him.

Again, wow.

This is so beautiful, really just mesmerizing, and it made me all thinky about the Sheppard that we know now. DOES he still carry that calm/love/laughter??

This is beautiful. And possibly my favourite Sheppard anything I've ever read. This is now part of his personal canon in my mind.

I really, really love this. It hurts, and it's life, and it's so perfectly John. Thank you.

Wow, this is pretty different from the usual fic out there. Very well done, very interesting ^_^ Your point was well made *g*

I keep wanting to use words like poignant and poetic and moving to describe this. But I think the best word I can come up with is *real*.

I've had moments when I wonder why I don't care more about the things that I think I should, or that everyone else does. I have been there. Sometimes I think I still am.

This is lovely. Thank you for sharing.

Just essential Shepperd.

This is utterly amazing.

The colours in it, weirdly more than some other things, made this painfully real to me. And everything is so...

If only.

I'm shivering.

Thank you.
