Reviews by Port of Seas

Summary: Among the weaponry and other items sent with Colonel Everett by Stargate command, surely they would have included mail. I imagine these letters and tapes lay in the bottom of one of the containers waiting until their owners can claim them...

I'm sure McKay will be pleased to receive that one. I think deep down, Sam sorta likes McKay enough to not kick his ass... that hard.

That was a really enjoyable fic. It seemed to jump around from plot to plot to plot while still remaining loosely related. Which was great because (hypothetically speaking) if Atlantis was a real expedition doing this stuff, it's likely that things would relate like that. I do wish you could have gone into more detail about the village of children. A lot of them just seemed to shake it off too easily. But I love Carson's theory about cloning and the fact that we are not the only bloody country in the world NOT on the metric system. Keep up the good word, Port of Seas

Lovely story, especially the bit with the myths. That always seems to tie everything back to the original themes of Stargate. I practically squealed at Oma's appearance! Keep up the good work.

You know, I never really gave much thought to the fact that everybody DOES have laptops. Wow.

Author's Response: LOL! Yeah, it's funny, isn't it? Everyone carries them all the darn time.

Hey, wow... they just get right to it, don't they? Well, a marine and a doctor, what can we say. I love your term 'intellectual foreplay'. That made my day a bit better, right there.

Author's Response: Thanks! I've been swamped lately so haven't checked here in the last month or so. It's so great to see that people are still reading my stuff! Yes, intellectual foreplay is a good thing.

It's really great to get into Weir's mind (and learn why she DOESN'T have a nickname) Great fic. It's amazing the power of a simple word, neh?

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.

Carson kicks Schwartz's ass a lot, doesn't he? It's a lovely fic, though perturbing to imaging him NOT sticking people with needles.

Author's Response: He does, doesn't he. I can sympathize. I've worked with certain residents where I'm constantly wanting to boot them in the rear...

Excellent story, it's so fun to see everyone during visits to Earth. I was thrilled to read that Carson and I have the SAME eating habits! It was a true, cute, feel-good fic.

Heh. It's so hard to imagine Carson being dirty, but when you do, it's totally worth it.

Special thanks to Random for his advise on weaponry and technology.

Author's note: this drabble was initially written for the Open Scrolls Archive drabble challenge, but after getting positive reviews and requests to expand... it will be expanded upon.

Summary: No real reason for doing this, just madness. I'll update as I write more, I'll add them five at a time for sanity's sake. (So is this madness or sanity?) What this isn't, is a fic, so don't get too excited. :)

Wow... that has to be one of the cutest/scariest pictures ever. I love it. It's always nice to see the 'what happens after the romance' kind of stories. I never thought about it, but that's just how Ronon would react with a kid. I love the notes about Satedan culture (in both chapters) and think this was wonderfully written!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I just thought it was a great concept, that image of Ronon w/ a child strapped to his back acting like nothing's changed and no one wanting to be the one to ask what's up. Then, of course, I had to build a culture to support him doing that. Glad you liked it ^_^
