I enjoyed this fic a lot -- great fun -- and thought the art went with it really well. I really like the overall teamy feeling (despite John being stranded away from the rest of the team for most of the fic) -- how John and Ronon and Teyla wished Rodney were with them instead of TempGuy instead, how John was present in Teyla and Ronon and Rodney's thoughts and actions while he was gone, and how John knew the team would be coming to rescue him.

On the meta topic, if we're talking about/trying to use Fanlore definitions, I might classify this fic on the Bob end of the gen scale (note that Fanlore has for several years been listing "Bob (genre)" as a synonym of gen, not as a "related" to or a "see also" for gen, and as schneefink pointed out, Fanlore's gen page has a lot more to it, including various older SGA examples of "gen or not" debated stories, than just that first limited definition sentence) but it still felt more gen than pairing (temporary or permanent ones) focused to me.

Also, kudos to michelel72 for clarifying this year's genficathon policies and discussing possibilities for the future, and working to keep the discussion civil. ♥
