Notes: This story is dedicated to my dear friend, Bluespirit. Happy Birthday, Bluespirit! I hope you have as much fun reading this story as I had writing it :-)This story is set immediately after “The Siege Part 3”, and before anything coming after that, simply because I haven’t seen anything after that episode. So John is still a Major at this point. This story hasn’t been properly beta’d but I have pestered Bluespirit with lots of questions. Hopefully I haven’t got anything badly wrong. This is my first Stargate: Atlantis story so be gentle with me! This story is now available as part of an anthology of my stories published in zine form under the title Breaking the Rules from: Agent With Style
