My most recognizable features are having an identical twin sister (who posts her stories by the pen name twinchaosblade), my love for the English language (especially poetry) and my addiction to Rainer Maria Rilke's works (a famous poet).
I've been writing stories for many years now but I've never done fanfics before. I feel more secure in inventing characters myself than writing adventures for already established ones.
Nonetheless, I'll give "Stargate:Atlantis" a try and hope you all enjoy it!
The most important lesson he's learned, is this...

Wow, what a start!
This is a short yet really great piece of fanfiction, you wrote here. I love it; Rodney's refelections on his friends are brilliant all of themselves and evoke a warm and fuzzy feeling with the reader.
Chapter 1: Another Lesson Learned
Matter can neither be created nor destroyed

Heart-breaking story, well written and holding a sad truth. Things NEVER happen independently from each other, even with time...
Rondey thought that maybe he'd cry and cry and never stop.

I'm still sniffing and sobbing. John and Rodney's break-up really tore into my own heart.
Quite from the beginning I thought McKay got it wrong but frankly both of them didn't handle this tough situation very well. The pain Rodney felt at being cheated on was really understandable, and so was the hurt at the break-up that caught Shep completely by suprise.
I'm immensely glad they FINALLY worked it out in the end!
Well-written and touching story. *sobs*
Author's Response: Thanks. I really glad you liked it.
They woke up brand new.

This has really been an amazing and most impressive story with stunning wording and moving moments!
McKay's will to sacrefice himself as well to help John ascend was heart-breakinly couragous and the way they dealt with the natives in the end made me smile in a selfsatisfied way I should perhaps be ashamed of...
Author's Response: Thank you very much!\r\n\r\nAnd totally with them on the destruction of the natives. *G* And their, ,you know, entire solar system.

Wow, this is such a brilliant story with tense and gorgeous writing; it never let me off the hook! Easily one of the best fics I read in quite some time. *applauds in awe*
I loved the way you varied the different scenarios and thereby also gave more understanding of the general situation on the planet.
I'm incredibly glad, they made it home in the end.
Author's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments! I\'m glad to hear the different scenarios worked for you without being too repetitive.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1 of 1
In Which Rodney Is Tattoo'ed, John Has Good Ideas, And The Author Is A Hopeless Romantic (go figure).

Funny and lovely story with great teasing on Radek's part! Sweet idea, the two tattoos meaning 'one', loved it.
You got the characterization quite good but I think (on a slightly critical note) that the present tense would have worked better with the I-perspective of Rodney. Thanks for putting it up here, I really enjoyed reading it!
Author's Response: Thanks! :D Yeah, I just love Radek. :) \r\nYou have a point there about the present tense - thanks for pointing it out. :) I\'ll remember that for future stuff. :D \r\n\r\n
He was pretty sure it would never have made a list of things he'd ever find floating above the planet.

*sniff, sniff, sob*
A very emotional and touching story. Thank you for leaving the two where they were (they deserved to stay together and in peace)!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. And it seems right they\'re together for ever.
John doesn't go inside until his teeth are chattering, until he's so cold he can't remember the heat of a body pressed close in his arms, what blood feels like on his skin.

This is such a so sad but at the same time really well-written story. I'm still crying because John lost Rodney and couldn't help it.
I like the idea of Ronon taking care of John the way he does here because he surely knows (and what's more, respects) that there's no one who can ever replace McKay in Shep's mind. John shouldn't feel so bad about it since everything is clear to Ronon.
Author's Response: Well, yes, but John\'s a control freak who thinks everything is his fault. I\'m glad you found the dynamic between him and Ronon believable; I was a little worried it wouldn\'t come across the way I intended. Thank you so much for reviewing.
Written for the Men and Machines Challenge at SGA Flashfic. Something's not quite right with John and it's up to Rodney to figure out what.

Great story and very well written.
I'm beyond glad they got the real John back in the end but I still have lots of sympathy for the android (he felt like the real Sheppard after all)! His last words, after he saved Rodney's life, moved me deep inside. Somehow he was more than just a copy and I want to hug you to infinity for Lorne's taking him back home too.
Summary: Ronon had taken their favourite balcony, Teyla the top of the central spire, and Rodney one of the few open places on Atlantis without a railing; all three of them were certain they knew just what, exactly, John Sheppard would be hallucinating.

Oh man, you all but made my heart stop with this story! *releases a shaky breath*
Hallucinating John taking a jump down into the ocean and poor Rodney having to rescue and revive him, only to be given the impression his best friend had died despite his best efforts.
I could so very much see his desperation and submission to not caring any more. *sniff*
Author's Response: *pets you* Sorry to take you on such a rollercoaster ride. And thank you for commenting. :)
A story in which nothing is solved, people are still broken at the end, but there is maybe some hope.
Updated: 26 Sep 2007; Published: 26 Sep 2007
This was so sweet and sad. I really hope it finally meant something for both of them, bringing Carson's turtles. *sniff*
Author's Response: I have it on good authority that there was possibly a little making out after the Giving Of The Turtles. It meant something :D
Chapter 1: you're the place i wanted to go
Often what is not said is as important.

Sweet scene between the guys and nicely written at that. Loved your 'scissors comment' in the rant. That was so typical of Rodney!
Author's Response: I did seem so Rodney to throw that in.... Thanks!
Chapter 1: Listening Between the Lines
Summary: When the medics arrived, his team-mates were advised to stay away from him.
Updated: 30 Sep 2007; Published: 30 Sep 2007
You are killing me!
This was such a terrible and yet heart-warming tale about how 'team' also means 'clan'. *sob*
Author's Response: John was right when he said they were a family. *nods*
Lost words, lost time, lost city.

This story really made shivers run down my spine.
I liked your characterization of the decendants and how they didn't even know why they were searching anymore, and much less for what.
Thinking about John and Rodney lost there, breaks my heart. But I agree with John; if there's anyone able to get them back home into their time frame, it's Rodney!
After a meeting with an alien shaman, Rodney starts thinking and talking uncontrollably in various languages.
Updated: 06 Oct 2007; Published: 04 Oct 2007
Ha, that was so much fun to read!
I actually recognized and understood every single one of the languages even though I feared I'd be at a total loss after your warning.
Great and very creative story idea and you mixed the languages truly expertly.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you, I\'m flattered :D Thanks for reading and taking the time to write a comment!
Summary: It's not like kissing Sheppard is a hardship.
Updated: 07 Oct 2007; Published: 07 Oct 2007
The last sentence almost breaks my heart even though Rodney does feel soemthing for Sheppard. *sniff*
Author's Response: Uh, sorry? And yeah, he does. He\'s just too dense to realise what it is. :)
I knew it! There's nothing like a near-death situation to find out about one's true feelings.
Sweet ending to a bitter-sweet story.
Author's Response: So true, at least for those two. ;) Thank you for commenting!
Rodney isn't well. A short prequel to 'Recuperation'.
Updated: 08 Oct 2007; Published: 08 Oct 2007
Sweet prequel and so true. Sometimes John just knows best what's best for Rodney.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It\'s a pleasure to write these boys. :-)
Updated: 10 Oct 2007; Published: 10 Oct 2007
Lovely story with cool dialogue between the two.
Nice idea to have them compensate each other for the lack of payment... ;-)
Author's Response: Thanks - glad you enjoyed it! :)
Being attacked by the bad guys and taken prisoner was becoming a cliché of the most tired sort.

Very nice story, great setting and superbly written. I loved it! Brilliant title too, by the way.
Talk of a spiffy way to save the day as McKay did, and Shep's bluffing was truly spot-on.
Just as John said, the bad guys simply don't stand a chance in hell against Rodney, much less against the combined forces of 'McShep'!
It sort of reminded me a little of a story called "To Market, to Market" by 'ga unicorn' on ff.net.
