By the time John was thirty-five and stepping through the Stargate into a new galaxy, he'd had a lot of sex without a lot of effort.

Finally indeed. It's so much sweeter when one has to work for it, isn't it?
Rodney invites John to Jeannie's for Christmas.

I loved this. The family feel of the Miller's at Christmas time; Rodney's total cluelessness.
After Rodney is held hostage on a trade mission, he starts to fall apart. When he won't admit anything's wrong, he's sent back to Earth to recover, and it's up to John to pick up the pieces.

You killed Simpson! I nearly had a coronary when it looked like Zelenka was gone as well.
I really enjoyed this. The way the story flipped back and forth between the mission to Ava and the present time on Earth gave me a real feeling for the situation. The slow build up to them *finally* getting together, and the general sense of 'family' at the miller house. All great stuff.
If only Rodney had some control of his higher functions, he would certainly let Lieutenant Colonel Of-Course-You-Want-Me-Everybody-Wants-Me know just how much the leaning and the smelling incredible and the looking hot were so not helping to ease his terror.

"Zelenka and the science posse" I love that.
There is such a thing as too much over thinking, as Rodney has shown us here. :-)
Author's Response: I have a feeling that Rodney has a very hard (if not impossible) time getting his brain to slow down. I can\'t help but think that the Marines, at least, look at the lab guys as the \"science posse.\" Thanks for reading and sending your feedback.
It's just a machine, like any hundreds of others the Ancients had left lying around, but he can't get it out of his mind.

I've read countless gender!switch stories, but this is a new and interesting twist. I like it. I'd be interested to see what happens after.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step of getting Rodney McKay in the damn car.

"I don't know what that means." Classic line I can so see Water uttering after a conversation with Rodney; *Any* conversation with Rodney.
I liked this, but I'd like more. I'm not greedy, really.
"In every generation, there is a Chosen One. Sh – uh, he alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. He is the Slayer."

This gives me a giggle, especially that last line. :-)
The McKay/Sheppard household is...special.

Snicker. Goddess. The trouble their kids could get into. Truly horrifying.
Author's Response: With parents like that, you know they\'re destined for trouble-making :D
John shook his head. "There's just not a lot of people who like my husband," John answered. "He's... different." / Teyla gave him a soft smile. "Different does not always mean wrong." / "Yeah, you know, there are people who might disagree with you on that." / "Are you one of them?" / John thought for a moment. "No – I guess I'm not."

Snicker. "That nice woman standing behind you"
Yes, well Rodney does love to put his foot in it, doesn't he?
Chapter 1: Meeting Friends
Torchwood/SGA crossover: Rodney McKay is a coffee connoisseur, and Ianto Jones is a coffee god.

This was funny. I loved Rodney's little impressions of Torchwood 3's members. If I was a coffee drinker I would probably have to agree with Rodney about Ianto. :-)
Author's Response: Thanks!
