This is lovely! I really like Micah as the listener, and him in Atlantis, awesome.

Thank you! The thought of Micah on Atlantis makes me so ridiculously happy.

I just ran across this (recced by seanchais). This is *wonderful*! Everyone is both extraordinary and themselves. This is a future for both the Atlantis crew and Micah that I could get behind.

Thank you! I just love them so much and want them to be happy. :)

This is just beautiful.

"Atlantis," Micah says, as the city whispers, yes, yes, tell them, tell them, "it loves you too."

I've really enjoyed reading this story -- I don't know much about Heroes, but I vaguely remember Misha as being an awesome character with an awesome power -- and this story has a lovely interaction between Misha and SGA's characters. The last scene was sweet, and I liked it -- a lot.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I am kind of envious of how awesome Micah's power is, to tell the truth.

I don't know Heroes at all, but this was a delight to read - I loved all of the different stories he heard from Atlantis.
thedeadparrot: atlantisthedeadparrot on March 8th, 2010 10:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I imagine that Atlantis must have seen a lot over the years. :)

This is brilliant. I found it via podfic links, but read the text instead.

I can't believe I never commented on this before. I don't even remember where I first heard about this, but what a treasure and find. Atlantis and machines in general as seen through Micah's eyes is an inspired and very well done way to tell this kind of story.

I loved seeing Atlantis through a technopath's eyes. The city and it's tech gained new life and personalities. I got a chuckle out of the gossiping doors and a small tear in my eye from the Stargate wishing Micah a safe journey. I've always seen Atlantis as a sentient being who cares for her/its people and their lives/happiness. It's nice to read where one of her residents can speak back and acknowledge that love.

Thanks for sharing this. I smiled like a loon all the way through. You're on my docket to rec next month at stargateficrec :)
thedeadparrot: atlantisthedeadparrot on July 4th, 2011 06:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I totally wish I had technopathy (which probably comes across very clearly in this story). I'm glad it worked for you!

(And I'm flattered by the rec. Thanks!)

Recced ya! :D
