"The Shrine" Follow-Up (with actual words this time!)

Slightly more coherent (but still pure squail) thoughts on The Shrine. I might be able to write full sentences at some point.

♥    John announced his undying friendship for Rodney. "Just face it, you're stuck with me."
♥    The beginning scene that nearly broke me, and the desperation in his voice
♥    Ronon putting on his game face to get that last day with the real Rodney... with EVERYONE
♥    THE PIER SCENE THAT HAS MADE MY SHIFT KEY STICKY BECAUSE OMG SHOW YOU WENT THERE AND YOU SAID IT
♥    John's sleeping shirt XD
♥    John wearing the Flan Flannel on the pier
♥    John offering Rodney his jacket
♥    42 MINUTES OF JOHN'S "This is NOT happening" FACE
♥    The SMILE after the pier flashback
♥    Rodney RUNNING and SCREAMING for John through the hallways (and John's frantic scramble to the door, and to calm him down)
♥    Ronon wants to have a picnic!
♥    Ronon carries Rodney through the gate
♥    That look of guilt that John carries, because he sent the jumper ahead instead of getting his team to safety immediately
♥    Deteriorating Rodney's pure, genuine, happy smile just broke me. Because that's the guy he is under all those walls--and yet not.
♥    Jeannie breaking a little upon seeing Rodney
♥    Team wants THEIR Rodney
♥    Ronon and Teyla are taking Rodney to that shrine, and John's moment of "Buh? ...wait a second!"
♥    I will take the arms wrapped around Rodney's shoulder as a hug. That's right, I'm just taking it without the producer's consent!
♥    "You're a good friend, Arthur."

And some, because it's personal fanon (and things I've written!) becoming canon!
♥    John being Rodney's anchor, even as he's losing his mind
♥    John and Rodney "don't say goodbye" (AIHFUEHS279WHYS! I FINISH THINGS TOO SLOW!)
♥    John and Rodney drinking beer together!
♥    Balcony/Pier scene 4tw!

ETA: My Great Big Woolsey Crush is in full force, and is undeniably there now. God, I love him so much, talking about his father with Alzheimer's, voicing sensible objections... and calling John to a stop making us think it's a warning, but it's a "goodbye" for Rodney. Oh... just... WOOLSEY!

...and there's more but this is still from the initial viewing! (I'm out of town this weekend, so I'll have to sneak it in later.)
