Really lovely. Short but captures a heck of a lot of emotion and thought from Weir.

Author's Response: thank you so very much and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.

Lovely bit of character work. You've captured them nicely (loved Ford's comment, *sniggers*).

Hee! Very cute, very funny, and something I'd love to see on screen. That man's ego can't get any bigger, can it?

Author's Response: Thank you! He certainly does have a large ego. But it's so much fun to play with. :)

Great chapter. Love the thoughts running through Rodney's head, that although he's terrified - understandably - he's with it enough to put the interests of his team before his own. Really nice, original story.

Just wonderful. Great descriptions, love the disconnectedness of McKay - you put that across wonderfully. Not sure if you're aware of its existence but you should join the Yahoo group "SGAHC", a list for whumping fics. They'd love this.

Great fic! Loved the chopping about between past and present, and the idea of McKay constantly thinking: "Okay, in five more minutes I'll be okay with this" - when obviously it's going to take a lot longer. (Now how about a sequel?!)

So very clever - and there isn't much fanfic that you can say that about. It's an ingenious concept, particularly when it's Rodney granted sudden 'omniscience', and it's genuinely creepy and angsty and... yeah. Fantastic. I just wish it was longer!

Author's Response: Thanks! I was aiming for creepy (which is vaguely creepy in itself).

This is so original! It's clever and inventive, yet completely in character, and manages to be both touching and slightly sad at the same time.

Author's Response: Oh, neat! I'm glad you liked it. It was fun to do a connected set of drabbles like that, and try and get the character voices right. Thanks!

Seriously loving this fic. You have a lovely way of writing and you capture all the characters wonderfully, including the OCs (which I always think is impossibly hard). Can't wait for the next update.

Author's Response: Thank you! I have trouble with OCs, too - - I'm trying hard to keep Midran in three dimensions, and it's good to hear that it's working. More will be up later this week and I hope you stick around.

Gah! I'm with Sheppard on this one, revenge is sounding good. Horrible, horrible experience of McKay, and of Ronan and Sheppard watching over him - but so vividly depicted. I'm in love with this story.

Author's Response: Thank you! Nice to hear that you share Sheppard's interest in retaliation.

Each chapter of this astounds me and this chapter is no different. It's heartbreaking and beautiful and just... wow, really. I love Ronan's perspective - utterly believable. And having Kavanagh come up with the drug is just... perfect.

Author's Response: Thank you! I adore Ronon and I thought it was definitley time he had a POV spot - - and I couldn't resist using Kavanagh. I'm glad the characterizations worked for you.

Great fic! Any fic which whumps Shep and McKay is good, but this was a great story - lots of tension, the swamp was described so well I really felt the creepiness, and then the chaotic panic of the mob scene - really great stuff. Great ending too.

Author's Response: Hi, cybersyd! Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I saw a picture of a mangrove swamp and thought it would be a good setting for a culling. Thanks for the review! I appreciate it. JJ

Just lovely. Choosing Zelenka's POV as an outsider works amazingly well and the snippets of body language, the occasional touch, or look - all of them perfectly in character. Wonderful fic.

Author's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I hadn't originally planned for it to be from Zelenka's POV, but was surprised to find out later on how well it worked, especially with regards to the others. And I firmly believe that Radek would observe, but never judge. I'm glad you enjoyed the story!
