There’s a deep green pool in the heart of the valley where the survivors live. Every morning as the pale sunlight picks shadows from darkness, Teyla limps to the edge and sings the planet awake. Rodney calls it foolish superstition, but it’s how the Athosians have always lived, and it’s how she lives now. Here.
Every morning, when her song is done, Rodney wanders sleepily out of the cave and reminds her that John is coming any day now. And he sits by the radio, cobbled together from the wreckage of alien ships, singing his own song to the stars.
