Chapter 5: The Rest of the First Year--Part Two
It is difficult to write a paradise when all the superficial indications are that you ought to write an apocalypse. It is obviously much easier to find inhabitants for an inferno or even a purgatorio. (Ezra Pound) Yeah, I'd say that about covers it, Ezra. John and Rodney are left behind when Atlantis (and, by extension, Pegasus) is evacuated. While returning to the Milky Way, they decide to bring a few friends along.
Chapter 6: The Second Year: Part One
I know the wait has been long but I do hope it is worth it with this chapter. Additionally, I've found some amazing music to add to the intros of the chapters (and all chapters have been updated to include the theme for continuity). I also found the original art by Lenkti. Such beautiful work! Hope you enjoy the beginning of The Second Year.
Chapter 7: The Rest of the Second Year
I am sorry it's taken me so long to update this story. I'll admit to having a lot of podfics in the works and on deck so the ones getting the most attention are getting priority. However, this is a special one for me so it will be updated all the way to the end. Thanks for your patience and hanging in with me.
