“You came.”

Years vanished into a single heartbeat; for a moment they were themselves again. Rodney torn between complaining of the wait and trying to deconstruct the not-jumper they’d flown in on. Teyla greeting Elizabeth, sister-queens who put aside their royalty to wash away the lost years in joyous tears. Ronon quiet, darker than he’d ever been, who waited until Rodney looked up from where he knelt with John and saw something in his eyes that Rodney-past would’ve missed.

“It wasn’t your fault you idiot.” Six words eclipsing three years of the same thing said by everyone he couldn’t believe. Ronon smiles, faintly, as the carried grief is broken.

And now the world is whole again; a different sort of unity, but family still.
