Trippy as all hell and fun as all get out! Crossovers, especially well written ones, are my catnip. Thank you kindly for sharing this, I greatly enjoyed it.

Author's Response: Thanks! We (sasha_feather and I) had a lot of fun writing it.

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!)

*sighs happily and saves onto hard drive*

Thank you for this. I love your stories, but I especially love the wonderful teamy goodness combined with Sam and McShep. Just the right combination to make my evening!

Author's Response: Oh, I\'m so glad you enjoyed it--thank you!

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!

*laughs* Brilliant! Poor Teyla, she always gets stuck with the boys when they get into these predicaments! Thanks kindly for sharing, this almost makes the Holidays worth the bother (not a Christmasy person, what can I say).

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.
