Winchester?? Sam & Dean Winchester??

Is that just a sly little one shot 'Supernatural' cameo or do get to see more of the boys.

Author's Response: They boys have popped up for a couple of cameos before, and they will remain in the background for the foreseeable future.

(Author's Response: They boys have popped up for a couple of cameos before, and they will remain in the background for the foreseeable future.)

heh, the 'boys' are probably the only ones that carry as many weapons as Ronon. :)

Author's Response: Sometimes, yes, although neither of them tends to have any knives in their hair.

(John peered over where she was indicating. "Sam and Dean Winchester. Why?"

"Oh." Vala crossed her arms and shook her head. "Another couple. Honestly, are there no men here who like women?"

"They're brothers," Evan said slowly. "I'm fairly certain they're straight, too. Well, as straight as anyone with the gene is."

"Brothers?" Vala perked up. "Excuse me, gentlemen."

The three of them watched her go and once she was out of earshot John asked, "You think we should warn them?"

"I'm sure they've dealt with worse," Evan said with a shrug.)


~giggle-snort~ Oh I dont't know. Vala can be kinda be well...Vala. ;)

Author's Response: I\'m sure they can manage to handle it. :D

Most excellent.

(tbc... What if Sheppard had to deal with the consequences of the military commander's animosity and learning to deal with all the Ancient tech as well?)

hmm...can't help wondering if the 'geek' contingent will rally around Sheppard.

Author's Response: thank you\r\n\r\nand I\'m certain the muse has more than a few ideas of the consequences of the probable animosity that Sheppard will experience ;)

Nice, very nice. Your usual excellent job.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the lovely compliment and letting me know you enjoyed this! :-D
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: What drives that strength of character? McKay didn't know either John Sheppard well enough to fully understand. Add in a reporter, a desire for truth and a taste of what "could be" & that unsigned non-disclosure agreement could be a problem. Vegas-fic.

Nice, I'm alway on the look out for more 'Vegas storie & this one looks good. Hope for more soon.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review. I truly appreciate the kind words. I\'m being super careful as I craft this little universe but I\'m having fun doing so. Vegas presented a nicely, essentially, blank canvas to build off of. Enough things that we learned in the episode are different from \"Our Atlantis\" that a writer (like me) who is more used to fully original fic can have a bit of a field day. Glad to hear that you\'re enjoying what I put out so far and hope that you\'ll continue to do so as the story progresses.

Curiouser and curiouser, we have mystery on our hands.

Author's Response: So glad you\'re enjoying the story (I\'ve already submitted the next chapter; just waiting for it to post). I\'ve been afraid that I\'m either confusing everyone, or turning them off with the slight differences to the characters we \"know\" from the show. I just, thought about it and realized that different experiences would produce slightly different personalities. Ex: A Rodney McKay not tempered by John Sheppard\'s friendship and things like that. Hope you\'ll continue to enjoy things as it goes along. Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

(They are CATS! You are HUMANS! They should not be able to get the better of you!)


Heh, Rodney doesn't know cats as well as he thinks he does if he believes that. ;)

Author's Response: LOL! I know! Though I suspect he\'s the worst when it comes to giving into their pleading eyes and catly tricks!! \r\n\r\nThanks!
