Whoo-hoo! Go Rodney! Love how he shifts from uncertain to positive in the blink of an eye.
Author's Response: Hehe! Thank you! I like the idea that Rodney doesn\'t bother to waste time on transition behavior... heh.

Hmmmm. Very hot and a lot of fun. And the boys just being themselves. Loved it.

Oh, that's just perfect! Thank you for this--it's what I'll hear in my head from now on.
Just like the title says. Five hugs.

God, I just loved this. Loved the progression of the hugs, the changes in intensity and purpose. The way John manipulates Rodney over the Air Force loss was funny but also very much in character and the end? Smokin'!
The morning after. John's a little bit uncertain.

Loved John's thought processes here and the way he was *so* sure that Rodney would think they'd just had the worst sex ever...
It's someone's birthday.

Oh, I don't know how I missed this one earlier but what fun! Just think about Colonel Licky Lips with a little frosting on the corner of that mouth, Rodney...
Author's Response: Mmmm, frosting on THOSE lips...\r\n*guh*\r\nStop breaking me! I\'ve told about that before! ;-)
Not all changes happen on the outside.

Oh this is lovely! I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the sex change was *not* the primary part of the story but something that made John re-evaluated how he felt about Rodney. And then John being all confused by this...it was just happy-sigh-making. *grin*
Author's Response: Thanks, M. Yeah, I\'ve never written a gender swap before & wanted to try & come at it from a slightly different angle. It really never was just about sex - & finally John saw that. Bless him! *g*
What Ronon thinks.

*snort!* Oh dear! *chokes on coffee* Go, Ronon!
Author's Response: Yep, that\'s our Ronon! *g*
Chapter 1: Midnight snack ~ a tag for The Game
"It's a dog," Rodney said. "For all intents and purposes." McKay/Sheppard friendship.

This broke my heart in so many different ways the first time I read it--you got all the animal details just right and I could literally *see* John as an adult playing with Max and John as a 12 year old boy playing with his dog then. I was relieved that John didn't have to make the ultimate sacrifice after all, but even more touched by his gift to Rodney. Absolutely fabulous story.
John has a surprise for Rodney

Terrfic story! I loved that last line in particular. :-)
What happened after Det John Sheppard was rescued from the desert (in the episode 'Vegas').

Leave it to John to check the fine print first! :-)
Author's Response: Yeah - then watch him grasp an opportunity! Thank you for reviewing!
When John and Rodney find an Ancient device, John makes a discovery that will change his life forever.

They say good things come to those who wait and it certainly held true in this case--this story has been on my reading list for a while nowand I'm glad I finally made the time for it! I loved the originality of the plot and John's excuses for continuing to use the device. I also loved the snark and the way certain lines stuck with you long after reading--particularly John's heartfelt desire that he not be forced to meditate! I throughly enjoyed it!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much - I\'m chuffed that you enjoyed it, M. *hugs*
San Fran is one place that will loosen ya up.

I love it when Rodney tells John what to say and he repeats it back--very happy making!
John did record some 'letters' home. He just didn't send them.

I'm so glad to see this story here--I love it to bits! Thank you so much for writing it. The parts where John starts arguing with his father even though he's not there...and tries to apologize to Nancy...just heartbreaking.
Author's Response: Thank you! And thank you for the challenge that made me write it!

Oooooh, totally fascinating premise and it gives me goosebumps just reading it. Awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Author's Response: Goosebumps? Cool! I had to attempt to straighten out the paradoxes in the episode in my mind, especially after watching SG-1\'s \'Moebius\'. Not sure I managed completely, but there\'s a little less buzzing in my head. :-D Thanks!

Just a peaceful day in Atlantis.

Loved the fact that Ronon just tuned John out and went on with his own thoughts during the story. Loved too Ronon's recognition of how previously, John had never relaxed--a nice little character study here!
