The way you wrote Daniel's reaction to losing Earth and Jack worked really well and was very much in character with who he had become by the end of SG-1. Brilliant!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! But this point in the series I can\'t even imagine all the things Daniel had bottled up inside him - and then to lose it all.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1
PDA by Madison [R]

Summary: Well, because he's always wanted to say it...

Mild spoilers through mid season 5, then a sharp detour in the direction of my chosing.

I love your stories and this one definitely does not disappoint. That last line in particular got a belly laugh. Thank you!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I love trying for the last line being memorable and funny--thanks for letting me know that you liked it!

I really enjoyed this story, the Jennifer perspective is spot on. My favorite part was Rodney's observation of John being like a black hole, with no emotion escaping the Sheppard event horizon. That made me snort and say "Seriously!" out loud.

Author's Response: Thank you! I wanted to keep her really, and not demonize her.\r\n\r\nHeh. Thanks for the call out - I am quite proud of those little turns of phrase that I use, and I love it that other people read them and say \"Yeah! Exactly!\"
Chapter 1: Outside the Box
Repatriation by Madison [NC-17]
[Reviews - 6]

Summary: Snide commentary takes a back seat as Fortune take the crew in a new direction and Ronon reads Harry Potter.

Spoilers through Season 5. Part of the Cabin Series. Will make more sense if you've read at least Small Sacrifices and Saving the Universe first.
Warning: Things look really dire at one point. Really, truly dire. But if you've ever read anything I've written, you know I go for the happy ending whenever possible.

I really love this series and hope you continue to add to it. This particular story was fabulous, especially with Puffin taking out the nasty little rodent alien.

I also like your description of John's nightmare, I had one just like it in early April...no, wait, that was seeing the Atlantis set without the gate and that stupid bedroom setup they had for a scene in Voyagergate 90210 instead. :-p

Author's Response: Ah, so glad you picked up on the description of the set tour...it really amused me to use that in John\'s nightmare. Your Fb here really made me smile--thank you!

Chapter 1: Chapter 1
Alignment by slybrarian [PG-13]
[Reviews - 3]

Summary: Elizabeth Weir had big plans for her proposed Atlantis expedition, but Cam Mitchell had no intention of joining it. He was perfectly happy with the sort of dangerous missions he already undertook and didn't particularly feel the need to go on a possibly one-way trip to a distant alien city. That was what he thought, at least, until he joined General O'Neill on a visit to the Antartic outpost, met an old friend, got shot at with an alien weapon, and found himself volunteering for the mission for reasons that he couldn't quite express. He was pretty sure John was to blame somehow.

I've enjoyed every story of yours that I've read, but this one takes the cake and the whole damn banquet, for that matter. Damn! I'm very glad to see that this story is the first part of a series and look forward to reading the rest of the stories in it.

Also, I'm glad you brought Cam along for the ride, considering Ben Browder was originally intended to play Sheppard. Nice!

I don't know what your muse requires in the way of feeding, but whatever it is, put me down for providing about a metric ton of it. Keerist, I've not laughed that hard in a while. Thank you!

Author's Response: I think it finally went bugfuck insane from pain and lack of sleep, but if you absolutely need to feed it, dark chocolate will do.

I'm glad to see that you cross posted this, I love it to pieces. Poor John, I don't know what I want to do more: give him a boot to the backside or smish him into a giant hug, the big doofus.

Author's Response: He is an idiot but Rodney\'ll sort him out.

'Love' does not even begin to cover what I feel for this story. The way you write these two is so dead on the money. It's just...'true' is the best word I can come up with to describe it.

Thank you for sharing this story.

Author's Response: I was a little afraid when I came up with this concept that it would land firmly in the crack category and no amount of writing on my part could salvage it. But ultimately the humanity of these two saved the day. Thanks for the nice feedback. Much appreciated!

"...in service of an organization that pillaged, murdered, and ran roughshod over anything and anyone in their path."

Oh, you have no idea how much this makes me want to tell you, in no uncertain terms, that the above line is a load of horse shit. I can't describe the pain it causes me to know that I can't do that, because it's true these days. And you have no idea how truly sickening it is to those who have served, and those still serving, to know that it's true and be helpless to do a damned thing about it but vote and hope the next assclown in the Oval Office, and those in the Pentagon, are better human beings and better commanders who won't ask such things of their people and will weed out those below them who do such things just for kicks. Then again, maybe you do, because you've got John's response dead on the money. Considering the deftness of your writing, it wouldn't surprise me if that was part of what you were trying to get across with this all along. Brilliantly done, as always.

Author's Response: I have nothing but the utmost respect for our soldiers, and I hope that in all these stories that I write about SGA I convey that. I think it\'s always easier when the \"enemy\" is clear cut as it is in the show (with Kolya and the Wraith). In real life it\'s not so easy. How do we cull out the humanity in our soldiers so that they can be killing machines and yet not completely destroy them as human beings? It\'s something I think about a lot, and I see that dilemma so perfectly in John Sheppard. Thank you.

*happy sigh* Yeah, actually, this is exactly the way I could see things happening between John and Rodney in canon, if TPTB weren't such terrible hacks and asshats.

Thank you for sharing this, it was a lovely way to spend part of my afternoon! I'm going to be saving this one on my hard drive to read again offline some time.

Author's Response: Aw, you don\'t know how that makes me smile! I do that with my favorite stories too, so that is a terrific compliment in my book!

Second Sight by Madison [NC-17]
[Reviews - 3]

Summary: He never sees these things coming...

As with all the Second stories, there is the implied death of a canon character in an alternate universe, but I do believe in happy endings! Written as a stand-alone story, but more fun if you're familiar with the series.

I always enjoy your stories, but this one was utterly fabulous! All of the angst of all of those alternate universes, with many of which I am familiar, yet none of the horrible consequences for our boys in this story. Loved it, thank you for sharing!

Author's Response: *big grin* Thank you! I\'m glad you enjoyed it! Once the idea took hold, it wouldn\'t let go. It was great fun revisiting the other universes too (but I wasn\'t sure anyone else would feel that way!)

Also, thank you for mentioning the Mercury 13 and Sam's early days on SG-1. Nicely done!

Author's Response: When I read the prompt, the Mercury 13 immediately came to mind--and right on its heels, the way Sam was so tough-girl defensive in the first episode of SG-1--and how they abandoned that characterization right away. Sam Carter is an iconic character in televised sci-if--and I think it is to Amanda Tapping\'s credit that she didn\'t turn into a stereotypical \'type\' at all. Sam Carter is one of a kind!

It's been some time since I've read any SGA fic to speak of and this one really hit the spot. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Also, I have to add that the thought of Rachel Luttrell singing "Into the West" makes my breath catch and tears gather in my eyes. That woman has such an amazingly rich and beautiful voice and that particular song just kills me every time I hear it (to the point that I can't listen to it while driving). I really wish she could record it. Also, comparing Rodney and John to Frodo and Sam is pretty much perfect, even though I truly don't see the slash in that particular hobbit pairing, despite the fact that I'm a slash maven.

Anyway, thank you! *stops rambling on*

Author's Response: I know what you mean about Rachel singing \"Into the West\" and the effect it would have. I was tooling along, merrily adding things to the story that would make me happy, when it came on the iPod and I *had* to include it. I\'m so pleased you enjoyed this--thank you!

Eh, Surly Singles day isn't so bad. I get to poke fun at all of the nonsense and laugh at people for how much they're spending on what is essentially crap for one day of the year when they should be showing the people they love their admiration and affection every day of the other 364 in the year. Lets the air right out of 'em.

As for this story, I love it! I can so see Rodney going off exactly like this, as well as John having been the one to send him the card anonymously, just to see his reaction. Thanks for sharing this, it provided a much needed giggle!

P.S. I'd have probably left this feedback for you on LJ, but it's balls up. Again.
