Summary: In a different world, not all sexual relationships between military personnel are forbidden. Slightly cracky AU, spoilers up to Duet.

I really enjoyed this story. I liked the way the characters interacted. However it required a lot of suspension of disbelief for the basic premise.

Author's Response: Thanks :) Yeah, that\'s why I take to calling it crackfic.

Summary: Even after twenty years, Rodney still has no idea how to raise children. Kidfic, futurefic. Past character death.

Wow...I'm speechless. This is not typically the type of story I will read on many fronts, and yet its the best story I've read in a long time. Very well done.

Author's Response: Oh, wow. Thank you so much!
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Evan Lorne absolutely does not have a crush on Rodney McKay. That's why his latest assignment - filling in for Colonel Sheppard off-world after an injury during a heroic rescue mission - will not be a problem at all. Nope, not in the least. Also featuring, in no particular order, botanical mischief, alien purity rituals, yoga, and bonus Winchester action.

Great story! The touches of humour actually made me laugh out loud and people looked at me funny - but hey that's a good thing! Just right amount of awkwardness. And I love McKay/Lorne almost as much as Sheppard/McKay.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. I like having humor even in the more serious fics, because it helps keep things more alive and less darkety-dark. Also, given the subject, there pretty much has to be some - any relationship involving Rodney is going to be awkward and involve flailing.
Chapter 1: Section 1

Summary: One day, Rodney McKay was minding his own business (no, really) and doing some routine jumper maintenance when he was set upon by an insane(ly hot) pilot.

Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: His existence, as he remembered it, began eleven days ago. He knew the word day was what to call the cycle between a single span of sunlight and darkness, but he could not remember what groupings of days were called. He didn't think it mattered much.

This was wonderful. Like Ciar, I too couldn't wait to reach the end, at the same time not wanting it to ever end. The characters felt spot on.

Author's Response: We\'re so glad you enjoyed the story! Hearing that our characterisation felt right to you probably the best feedback we could hope for; thank you so much.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: If Aliens make them do it, no one can really blame them, can they? But... does it matter which aliens?

I skipped to the end to make sure that it was in actual fact completed, because I've been burned before. Considering it says TBC in part 3, I'm a little disappointed. Is this, or is this not a complete story on its own? I understand one should read part 1 to understand the universe, but if I'm going to finish this, and things will be left hanging in the air, I'm just not going to start.

Author's Response: Oh! Okay, we\'re really really sorry for the mixup. Yes, this story CAN be read on its own. The series COULD end here, with that not so happy ending. All of our stories in this verse are/will be like that. But we are already close to finishing part 6, which will be the second to last part in this universe. So you don\'t have to worry. =) Thank you for pointing it out, you\'re right, it IS confusing and we will change it. We hope you will still enjoy the story. Cass and Mel

Summary: He flexed his fingers, hoping to ease the stinging in his palm. Fucking Sheppard threw too hard. He'd been lucky, with the way the ball smacked into his glove, to tag Fernandez out at all. Plus, he was positive he'd pulled a groin muscle! Yeah, that was permanent ligament damage; he could tell.

Very hot, I liked it. But it shouldn't be listed as ship pairings - should be slash. I almost didn't read it thinking it was going to be het, and ship readers may get offended.

Author's Response: Oh Crap! I don\'t know where my head was at when I put that there! *smacks forehead* Thanks for the heads up. It\'s all fixed now. :)

I enjoyed the story. And that's saying a lot because I usually give up on first person stories after a few paragraphs of effort.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you stayed on after those few paragraphs :-)
Chapter 1: Act I

Summary: A Wraith is loose in Las Vegas, and when the Atlantis team stumbles across a couple of detectives already on the case, two guys who ride around in a '67 Impala and look nothing like local PD, they quickly come to the conclusion that life would go a lot more smoothly if they all just worked together. But things are crumbling around them fast, the ground slipping away beneath their feet, and it forces both John Sheppard and Dean Winchester to the same eventual realization: it's time to stop lying to themselves, once and for all.

This was great fun, I burst out laughing several times. The Dean voice is phenomenal and the John voice was quite good too. I've watched Supernatural from the beginning, haven't read much slash from it, but this pairing definitely works for me.

Author's Response: So glad you liked it, darling. :D

That was great! I love this way of doing a '5 things' story - making it an actual story rather 5 separate points.

Author's Response: Thank you! Actually this was my first \'5-things\' story and enjoyed writing it. I sympathized with Rodney about picking the cards!
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: There was an entire pantheon of things Rodney was willing to concede could exist, even though he'd never personally witnessed evidence thereof. Time travel, for starters. Space aliens. The perfect man. But he absolutely, positively could not accept that he'd been dreaming of a guy he'd never seen before in his life, who turned out to be real.

For the most part I liked this story. Could definitely use a beta. The typos weren't too numerous, but you need to pay attention to your tenses and your sentence structure.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Three-day event rider John Sheppard inherits Pegasus Farm and decides to build a new life there with old friend Teyla Emmagan and her son. When he meets prickly horse trainer Rodney McKay, he falls hard for him, while John's friendship shakes up Rodney's life, making him want to take chances again. A harassment campaign aimed at making John sell the farm soon turns violent though and endangers everyone before they can figure out what and who they really want.

I don't generally read wips (because more often than not, they never get finished), but I couldn't help but peek at this one. The concept intrigued me. Its a good start and I'm looking forward to finding out more about the back history, as well as trying to see where you are going.

Even without first reading the discussion you referenced, I laughed my head off reading this. The sad part is there are some people IRL who view sex this way. Those are people, of course, who don't like sex and everything it implies, but I find it very sad.

Author's Response: I did feel bad for John and Rodney while I was writing this. If they ever did manage to have sex, it wouldn\'t be any fun!
