The story is part of a series that I think is called N+1, it begins with Beneath a Waning Moon, a story in which John comes to Rodney on a balcony every night, gets him off, and leaves, without them speaking much or acknowledging who they are. Other parts of the series are by filenotch, including a longer piece where they're taken prisoner on a planet by people who worship an evolutionary form of the Wraith. I'd tell you what the story's about that I'm looking for, but I don't know, as it's recced here as part of the series, without individual summaries.
Since the rec is from 2006, I figured it might be faster if I checked here before asking the author to friend me so I can read it (I always feel a little selfish doing that, if they don't have anything listed that says 'if you want to read such-and-such, friend me' in their profile or whatnot--besides the fact that earlier parts of the story from that very same journal aren't locked, so I figure there's a reason (rating, maybe?).
Here, thanks etui
