Absolutely grand! I really enjoyed "Retrograde", and I'm delighted to find that the sequels are just as good. You've really got a knack for clever turns of phrase, as well as good solid storytelling. Good stuff!

Cute! Loved the SG-1 banter.

Author's Response: Thank you! I really enjoy writing banter far too much, so it's great to hear that it's fun to read!

This? Was good. Nice job of exploring some of Ronon's depths while still keeping him (and the rest of the gang) in character, taciturn and all. Gaen sounds neat. Wish I could smell it in person.

I love the way you use scents to make the descriptions more real. And Ronon not wanting to see Atlantis without the Earth tech cluttering it up, is terrific.

Ooh, nice. Definitely a good choice to have all the senses represented. I particularly liked Smell -- so true, what the different scents of sweat can tell you. Good job.

Author's Response: *Tips hat* Thank you kindly!

Good story. I think you nailed the smart-person-vs-society angle pretty well. (Bits of this gave me flashbacks to high school, actually.) Good read.

Good story! Nice balance of funny & serious, and the alien culture felt really detailed and well-thought-out.

I did find the first-person POV a little distracting, especially with all the shifting verb tenses. However, I still really enjoyed it. Also, "...and now our CMO was a giant haggis in a lab coat." might just be the best line ever.

What would an Ixlatecutl be afraid of? Maybe Ronon with a napkin tucked under his chin?

Author's Response: Shifting verbs. Ooops. (Smacks self with grammer stick.) And I dunno - Rodney with a napkin tucked under his chin would be scarier. That man eats constantly! :)
Chapter 5: V: Let Downs And Beginnings

Summary: Sequel to "The Claws That Catch", wherein Sheppard meets the new Guardian and learns that some things are hard wired, and appearances only go skin deep some of the time.... And a bonus of double Shep whumpage!

I've been looking forward to this sequel, and I'm not disappointed! Good action, good angst, good humour.

And yes, that is so like Sheppard, once he got over being freaked out himself, to make sure everybody else got a chance to be freaked out, too...

Looking forward to the next one!

Author's Response: I\'m happy I didn\'t disappoint! But, alas,the next story will come slowly. But come it will. :)

That was very good. I kept expecting McKay to have traded his knowledge of near-Ascension, but his music instead was perfect, and poignant.

I loved Ronon with his new knife-fighting skills. Sheppard's reaction makes sense, but I can also see some aging master making the trade gladly, thankful to know that his art won't die with him.

Nicely done.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I think some people would appreciate a skill trade...it\'s not really evil, just very different from how we view the ownership of talents.

Safekeeping by Xparrot [PG-13]

Death by fruit cup -- gotta love it. Great team banter!

Author's Response: Thanks, so glad you enjoyed it!
Chapter 1: Safekeeping

Summary: Sheppard tries to talk McKay into taking a little trip. I was challenged to use the words 'intercontinental', 'lamppost', 'countenance', and 'corollary', and this is what happened.

Spoilers for season 3, specifically "Lifeline".
