Oh, did he come undercover? And is the nice Comm Sheppard? You have to continue this. I'm hooked.

Author's Response: By he I assume you mean Ronon? I'd tell you the answer but then that would ruin part of the plot wouldn't it. However, you will find out just how Ronon got there in forthcoming chapters. I can't tell you who the nice Comm is, but, I can tell you who it isn't, and Sheppard is not the answer. If you look back a few chapters I gave a clue as to whom it could be. I'm working on the next chapter; it's just slow going.
Chapter 10: Be Sure to Find Me

Summary: The realization hit him fairly quickly at that point, he was sitting with the outcasts. The loners who weren't quite loners, but were never going to be a part of the clumps and groups and easily labeled segments of their peers. Sheppard smiled to himself. He was sitting with the future leaders of Atlantis.

This was fabulous. I loved the John angst and the high school without the brattiness. Thanks for posting!
Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: The Goa'uld are gone, the world is at peace and the history of the SGC is known by every schoolchild. Or is it? A once trusted friend is now the enemy while those left fight to stay alive and search for way to be free again.

I love this story, as it develops I get more and more invested in them. Thanks for posting!

This story is now complete.

Hi just came across this fic (again- I saw it some time ago but decided to wait til it was finished). Anyway, super excited. Also a little confused by the OMCs but I'm sure they'll make sense when i read it from the beginning ;) Just came here via your bb fic.

So i just started reading this. I really loved your writing in your bb fic, so I'm interested in seeing where you go with this... but right now I'm not so fond of your Connor.

Lol, he's too perfect. He's an awesome fighter, a brilliant linguist, a great shot AND a good pilot. I guess the only thing that makes him bearable is his inability to look after himself so he has to have several people doing the job! But I'm hoping you develop him more and we see people outshine him a little. That would be interesting.

Please don't see this as criticism- I rarely read fics with major OCs because I generally always find it difficult to connect with OCs who outdo my favorites (Sheppard, etc.) Your writing is great and it's keeping me interested. And I love your John and Evan! And your wise Teyla.

Hi hon! Just poking in to say I'm sorry, but I've stopped reading this fic. You're a great writer, and I wish I could keep reading it (and your bb fic is one of my favorites from this year), but I'm not really into romantic pairings where one person has to be protected and all- not my thing! Anyway, I'm sure the rest was great, and thanks for posting!

So instead of deserting it, because i really do like your writing, I decided to skip forward a bit and I like this a bit better now- it's nice to see Connor playing a bit of a stronger role, or at least admitting his problems. Hopefully being on a gate team will be good fr him- if you are responsible for other people's lives you can't not be in good health.

Ok I'm starting to LOVE Rodney and Eric, so I'm enjoying this fic a lot. Great job!

Um, just one quibble, and I used to work for the military (not as a soldier but as a civilian) so I know this is super important- junior officers are NOT called inferiors. A lot of the time they're the nes goin into battle so that term is offensive. The correct term is junior or subordinate.

I guess that was a little unexpected- Rodney loving John. I do like your Rodney/Eric relationship- one of equals, two people taking care of each other, being able to rely on each other, etc. I still worry about John and Connor- most soldiers wives I knew had to become tough because if your spouse is worrying about you they're more likely to get killed on a battlefield. And well, Connor seems to go from danger to emotional breakdown to danger, poor guy! I can't say that I'm warming up to him but I like Eric, and I'm usually not that fond of OCs.

I'm warming up to Connor more and more- I do agree that even my issues with him, well he should be allowed to have his own neuroses. I like that John loves him the way he is- that is a powerful message, though I guess not if Connor has some sort of eating disorder ;)

I also loved Connor and Eric's conversation because that's true- Connor's religious ideals are his own, and he can't use them to judge someone who doesn't share them. I'm impressed that he picked up on that.

I love how you took me on the journey of Connor's growth from a character I just felt sorry for to someone who became strong and likable. I'm still fonder of Eric (and heart my canon characters the most) but I like Connor by the end of this, and I can see his journey clearer. He faced his demons with grace and opened his mind up the way he needed to. Great job, thanks for posting!

Author's Response: Hey, Indus. Wow! I\'m not sure I\'ve ever received quite the responses that you\'ve sent, but I\'m glad you seemed to like it in the end. I ended up with a few fans who liked Eric more than Connor, so that\'s cool. =) Thanks for sticking with it. Cheers, Ace
Chapter 53: Never Think

Summary: Sequel to Neverland--*Mild SLASH* Sheppard/Mitchell.

Having his mom here was different than having John's parents for a visit. For one thing Cam's mom had no idea about any of John's past. She didn't understand why John was so quiet, so contained, so dedicated to Cam and Rodney and Daniel. She didn't understand why John did their laundry and vacuumed their rooms and cooked their meals. Cam was pretty sure his mom thought John was some kind of glorified housewife to all three of them.

Great series-very enjoyable. Your Cameron is a bit of a saint, really, and it's a good thing John seems to realize that. I wonder if Rodney and Daniel do? Because while they give up and do a lot for John, in many ways John gives them as much or more than he gives Cameron, and they haven't bound themselves to a possibly celibate life!

Author's Response: Thanks. And Cameron is definitely a saint, lol. I like to think that Rodney and Daniel realize it. =) Cheers, and thanks for reading. - Ace
Chapter 1: Words

Summary: Sentinels and Guides come in matched pairs, one near-perfect Guide for each Sentinel. Of course, things are never that easy for Sentinel Rodney McKay, though. He didn't find his Guide as a youth, and by the time he's in his forties, it doesn't seem like there's any chance. (Sentinel fusion ... kind of)
