Very, very nice. I like that he's still just John Sheppard but with a slightly weirder childhood than we had previously assumed. All the potions that can be made from ingrediants in a muggle kitchen, and doing a ritual with regular condiment salt, gun oil, and a borrowed candle. All the details you put in made this story just perfect.
Ooh, I like the concept. Very Sheppard. I wonder if, in that theory, all wizards are actually people with the ancient gene, squibs just got unlucky with genetic inheritence, and vice versa with muggle borns.
I laughed out loud at the bit about the hair. This was brilliant and I hope you write more in this 'verse!
Gods, come on please write more. I love this story. I don't care if it's more chapters or a sequel. Please!!!

(Here on the rec of mhalachaiswords) What a charming set piece. I have yet to watch SGA, but this was clear anyway (I'm a big SG1 fan).
Very interesting way to cross it over, I hadn't ever thought of what happens with those who don't want to go to a school but know they're magical. I enjoyed it quite a bit. :)

A delightful read...thank you. Would love to see more in this same universe. And to see how Rodney would react to magic. Thanks again, well done.

Wonderfully written. Talk about home-schooled! *snicker* I guess that since John's not the next Wizarding Savior, he'd be much more likely to fall through the cracks of the Wizarding world, huh? ;) What would be really interesting is if there were other wizards/witches in the expedition, who ended up finding John out and calling him on his spellcasting. *chuckle* That would be pretty interesting... ;) Well written. ----}-@ Krys

OMG!!! It's like a whole new Harry Potter!!! And the best part is that apart from terminology it has almost nothing to do with Harry Potter. *rubs hands together gleefully* you must write more

Wow, excellent fic. It makes perfect sense for some wizards and witches to hide from Voldermort and preventing their children from accessing the magic world.

Woo hoo. I loved it. That story was like a crossover without being a crossover. I got a kick out of the hair into feathers part too.
I really like your blending of HP-style magic with Sheppard. He does seem to be the best candidate and the bit about turning his hair to feathers during transfiguration experiements was priceless. I wouldn't mind seeing some more of how he uses magic in Pegasus if you're ever moved in that direction. *g*

I loved the explanation of why his hair's got a bit of a wild side to it! Now, if you could only explain the ears....;)
I like the idea of John being a wizard, and your description of him learning or being homeschooled in magic. The explanation for his "hair never being the same again" was brilliant. *cackles* Loved your story. The end was exceptional fitting. *grins* *glomps*

Nice! I like how this AU fits in so well with the canon presentation of John: that feeling of somehow being an outsider, despite his looks and his charm; the way he seems to get really lucky sometimes; the idea that maybe ancient genes are one of the reasons wizards exist; and of course, the brilliant explanation for his hair. :) I'd like to see more of this, especially since there are so many observant and questioning types surrounding him in Atlantis, a place where he probably can't let lack of privacy keep him from spellcasting.

Ooo... interesting. You've got me hooked. Please update. Azar
Hey, that's great! I especially love the explanation for John's... unique hair. Figures that even his magic education is nontraditional -- he's a maverick in many ways.
