I love this. At first I thought that Rodney was going to make a fulcrum and find a huge lever, but motorizing a hand truck is just as brilliant and much more Rodney's style.

Thank you for the grin!

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed!

I really enjoyed this story and I'm glad that I ran across your drawing which led me to it. Thanks for sharing!
Chapter 5: V: Let Downs And Beginnings

Summary: Look, this sort of thing just happens, and they (usually) don't mean to do it. Seriously, every team destroys a world once in a while. Lorne's lying when he says he never has.

*still laughing* Oh yeah, John is SUCH a geek! Hmmm...it would be pretty cool if you wrote the sequel in which Ronon would ask Lorne who/what Nyarlathotep is and then have them proceed to play tricks on John and Rodney using that information.

Author's Response: Maybe someday. I\'m not sure it\'d be too smart to play that kind of joke in city that rose from the depths, and which was in Antarctica ten million years ago.

I really enjoyed this story. I love the way you portrayed McKay on a guilt trip and losing his confidence, I think you got him just right. Thanks for sharing this.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you thought I got McKay right with the guilt trip and everything. I\'ve always felt like there needed to be something between Redemption and Rising to explain his apparent change in attitude (Redemption showed us a little of the \'softer\' side, but I always wanted something more - so I wrote it!!). Thank you.
Chapter 2: Chapter 2 - The Astrophysicist Who Made a Friend

Summary: Five times Ronon slept with a teammate (or seven, depending on how you count these things). Written for the 2007 Ronon Ficathon.

Chapter 1: Chapter 1 of 1

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!

*whistles* Nope, slings are a vastly underestimated weapon, especially in the hands of someone who is accurate with one.

I like your twist of the First Ones. It is just like the freaking Ancients to pull a stunt like that.

Author's Response: Yup. I\'ll never forget some of the slides we saw in that PaleoPathology class.... Youchers. And you should have seen the skulls of the people who chewed coca leaves. Blech.

*whistles* Wow, there are just so many things to love about this story that it would take me all night to list them all, so I'm just going to give you my top two. I especially love how the time loop ends when John finally feels how Rodney has felt all that time about John's seeming flirtation with death. I also love Rodney's comparison of John with a feral cat and how it affects his courtship of John. I do have a question, though: was Rodney weaving tiny bug baskets a shout out to Orson Scott Card's "Alvin Maker" series, or just Rodney's way of dealing with the boredom?

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m rather partial to the feral cat image myself (and I\'m afraid I\'ve used it more than once). No the basket weaving was just a way to kill time--it amused me to have Rodney make little tiny baskets as that struck me as being harder to do. I\'m so glad you liked it and let me know--thanks!

Also, all of the details you put into that beginning were so brutally visceral it made my gut cramp. I had to double check the warnings to make certain this wasn't one of those permanent character death stories! Yeesh...

Author's Response: I *did* worry about that and thought if I said something to that effect in the summary, I\'d sort of end up spoiling the impact of the story. Hard to know sometimes how much to say and what to leave out. I certainly didn\'t want to upset anyone! I\'m glad you stuck it out though! :-)

I never thought of looking at Rodney calling him John that way, but it works really well. I have to say, they way you have John slumped against the wall, hugging himself, creates a really great, emotional visual. The body language speaks volumes.

The Tolkien fan inside me just squeed like a little girl. I love the idea of calling Rodney Merry! And the story itself was just what I needed right now, sweet and lovely. Thank you!

Summary: After weeks of trying to find the boy's parents (he told them that his mother was Ontario and his father Salmon River, but nobody believed him) or any other relatives, the authorities declared Meredith an orphan.

*flails like a fish on dry land*

THIS is exactly what needed to happen at the end of "Outcast"! This is my canon, right here. Also, I love the way you've portrayed Sheppard's near inability to talk about his emotions, it's dead on the money.

(Yes, I'm stalking you this morning. I'm glad I decided to read stories on Wraithbait when I couldn't sleep, because I found all sorts of good stuff you've written that I hadn't seen before!)

"May squick" with no specifics is really not sufficient warning for rape in a story. I was greatly enjoying this story until I was hit between the eyes by the rather descriptive, matter of fact, sentence long rape scene. And no, it doesn't really matter that the scene in question was an induced hallucination. Thanks ever so for the flashbacks.

Author's Response: I\'m sure you have long forgotten this comment and I hope long forgotten the story, but I don\'t check over here and didn\'t see the comment. I deeply apologize for blindsiding you. I would never want to cause someone a flashback and I didn\'t think this would. Obviously I was wrong.

I absolutely love your take on Nancy. I'm hoping something similar to this will happen in season 5.

If you decide you want to write more of this, I would very much love to read it! It's about time Rodney got the goods on John after Jeannie and Rod spilled everything about him. *smirk*
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: "You are not allowed to show Ronon any more musical movies," Rodney shouted in John's ear.

Total crackfic for sga_flashfic's "Not Dead Yet" Challenge. Set between the Season 4 episodes "Midway" and "The Kindred, Part 1". Slight spoilers. Possible inferred McShep slash.

Oh god, oh god, ow, it hurts! *holds sides, still laughing* This might not have been so bad if I hadn't seen Spamalot on state in Seattle, but I could just visualize Ronon and the Marines doing that number. Thank you for this, I needed that belly laugh!
