Summary: Ah, Imaginary Gate Team 5... from their inception in sga_flashfic's Mission Report challenge these five fictives have demanded more screen time than any OCs I've ever written! Puttering around behind the scenes in canon-friendly fics and AUs alike, mighty GT5 does the work no one else can do. Mostly because everyone else would have died of terminal boredom or rabies by now. ^_~

But GT5 isn't just slapstick (no matter how Amy's Mission Report reads!), they are five real people out doing their best in a galaxy far far away. Maybe they aren't GT1 caliber, but they aren't afraid of hard work... just the wombats.

Fics are listed in order by timeline and/or suggested reading order. The 'Tales' is a collection of drabbles created prior to the series formatting upgrade, each chapter is a separate story/drabble.

This is awesome. I like how Rodney explains why king size mattresses are needed. Liz'beth is cool!

Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you liked it. I enjoyed writing Elizabeth\'s bit. I agree with Rodney of course, about the beds. You can\'t expect people to put up with crappy mattresses and regularly save the world. Its just not on.

This is a cool story...well except for the fact that John is about to blow his brains out. Is there going to be more? You write the most interesting stories. Keep up the good work.

I LOVE YOU!!! You have been nomonated for sainthood for this story alone. Is there more from after they get back?

Author's Response: There\'s nothing more in the works at the moment, if nothing else because as far as we know Cadman was transferred off the Atlantis detail for good. *Sad*\r\n\r\nGlad you enjoyed the VSD, though.

I love this story. The ending of Ch. 3 almost made me cry 'cause I get that whole thing were you can't look at yourself in the mirror. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: *Nods* I can't help thinking that Elizabeth just can't be immune to the implications and hypocrisy of some of her actions. Thanks for reading!

It's wonderfully well written. But I just don't get it. I'm sure that I'm missing something obvious but I don't get it.

Author's Response: Well, I\'m glad you liked the writing? I\'m not sure what you don\'t get - there are five fairly self-contained segments from Sheppard\'s life as I imagine it, and the only thing in common is a very specific regret. It was part of a meme series that went around livejournal a few months back, where you\'d ask for prompts and people on your list of friends would say, for example, \"5 shots Sheppard wishes he\'d taken\" and you had to write a story in this format. I wrote several. There\'s not meant to be a discrete internal plot or anything, so you\'re probably not actually missing anything. There\'s not a lot to get, is all. *g*
