Hi everyone!

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!

Summary: Set after the end of Rising. Was the city of the Ancients really as deserted as it seemed when the expedition arrived? Written for the Halloween Challenge.

Highly entertaining and well written story.
Yet, even though I really liked your charcterizations, I think the portrayed cameradry was a bit too much into the first season already (no offence).
The different scenarios you chose to 'test' the people, and especially the last one were gorgeous and imaginative; very fitting for each of them, including the Ancient set to protect the secrets from 'unworthy' claimers.

Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad you liked it. No offense taken to your critique ;-) I do have to be careful when writing things in the first season that I don\'t come out with third season relationships. I\'m working on a fic right now set in season one and I\'m struggling with just that issue!

Sweet little tag to celebrate John's turning... *whispers* ...fourty.
I loved his going through five stages up until acceptance. LOL

Author's Response: Turning forty is a completely legitimate trauma! It\'s perfectly normal for him to grieve over it! Heightmeyer even agreed... well, nodded and made notes.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: If only Rodney had some control of his higher functions, he would certainly let Lieutenant Colonel Of-Course-You-Want-Me-Everybody-Wants-Me know just how much the leaning and the smelling incredible and the looking hot were so not helping to ease his terror.

Very sweet and well written fic. You really nailed the characterizations and it's a great read how stunned Rodney was when Shep took his first step.
I loved your "you do amazing stuff for me" line to no end and McKay's belief that it just had to be John who scared him the most.

Author's Response: Thank you! We all know that Rodney can be oblivious to not only those around him but perhaps to what he wants for himself as well. I think it would take John, with his take charge attitude, to make Rodney see what was right in front of him. I\'m so glad that the story worked for you and I appreciate your kind feedback.

Cool idea, to have Rodney take the first step with Shep under these circumstances.
I liked their banter too; very fitting (especially John's 'your sudden love for football' comment).

Author's Response: Thank you! The banter in this one was lots of fun to write :)

I loved the way you described how McKay felt hotter with every step after Shep started the conversation.

The gentle but possessive way Rodney showed John what awesome quality time they could be spending together from then on, evokes a warm and fuzzy feeling inside.

Very interesting ficlet and well written. I loved how you had Annabelle tell the story from her point of view.

Great, she came to visit John in the hospital afterwards. And did I mention how much I adored McKay saving the day, eventually? To perceive it only from the girl's perspective in that deadful situation when she already ducked behind the counter, was a really brilliant move IMHO.

Shep's last statement about not leaving the bedroom was hilarious!

Rodney might be getting soft but he clearly loves tending to John when he 'needs' him.
Your observations about what McKay had to ignore in order to nurse Shep, were both endearing and true.

Author's Response: Thank. The Rodney that I write is just a little bit me so I find him easy to write.

I predicted the outcome (and unwisely chose to ignore your CharacterDeathWarning) about half way through the fic but am still sobbing like a baby. Honestly, you shattered my heart along with John's.
Gorgeous writing, amazing characterizations and so very sad! *sniff*

But there's hope, isn't there? The members of the expedition are just presumably dead, nothing definite, right?
Ronon, Teyla and John have their own ship, so how about a follow-up? They could be going on a rescue mission of their own and try to find Rodney. After what he and Carson did to make the world a better place, he surely deserves it, don't you think?
I feel so bad for both Shep and McKay. Each in their own way, they suffered through the past eight years. Somehow I still expected to get a more positive ending...

I can see the parallels to "Enhencement" but the two stories are still pretty different. And with 'different' I mean much more serious on the topic in particular.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you very much! Yes, Ronon, Teyla and John have their own ship. John is also filthy rich now he\'s inherited everything from Rodney. We\'ll see what he decides to do with that money. :)

B.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l.!
I adore this sweet ficlet to no end. I'm deeply impressed with all those things John loves about Rodney - and every little thing is as much about friendship as it is about love. *turns into a content puddle of goo*

Their relation really is strong, because they always come up with a solution to their every troubles, no matter how severe the fall-out was in the first place.
The "Speaking of squirming" part was especially gorgeous! LOL

If I hadn't favourited you long ago already, I'd do it in a heart-beat for this gem!

Author's Response: Why, thank you! *beams*

Cute story and nice musings from Rodney's POV. I put it down to his headache he didn't realize at first the kid was John himself.
Very good phrasing for the whole fic in general and the 'weird not-fights' paragraph in particular. Their last scene together was gorgeous.

Author's Response: Thank you. They have not-fights in the show so it\'s not a stretch really :-)

Very entertaining story with both hilarious and sad situations until they finally reached their point of agreement. Way to beat about the bush, John and Rodney.

I merely think that Shep really overreacted by hitting poor Radek. To my mind they have a warmer relation, especially as I doubt the Colonel would ever consider Zelenka a 'threat' concerning McKay.

Author's Response: Thank you for commenting! And yeah, John did overreact, and immediately realised that himself. As for the threat, I don\'t know. I\'d like to think John isn\'t as calm and collected as he likes to think he is. ;)

Really sweet little ficlet. The two are just cute together. And I loved Rodney's "You're not able to handle the effect is has on me" comment when Shep startet eating the pudding with his fingers.
Pure fluff, just as promised.

What nice and well written reflections on the various memebers of the Atlantis expedition.

Heightmeyer was a real good choice for the POV because she gets to see certain sides of people no one else gets to know, therefore making the list about her most difficult patients interestingly unpredictable but for the first rank.

Author's Response: Ooops... that didn\'t go through the first time.\r\n\r\nThanks! Kate would definitely be privy to details about the team that no one else could share (and some details, no doubt, that people wouldn\'t want to know).

Great episode tag for "The Storm/The Eye".
Sheppard and McKay really needed to talk things over with Rodney believing he jepardized everything by giving in to torture. And he certainly had a point in stating that no one except the Major was playing by the rules in the Pegasus Galaxy. Seeing as they are depending heavily on one another on Atlantis, the scientists and military need to realize the classic role models won't do much good in this new environment.

Author's Response: *nods* Exactly! The expedition really are living in a constant combat zone and as canon has demonstrated, this was certainly not the last time that one of the civilians was put into harms way, threatened or put into the middle of a combat situation. It\'s definitely something that needed to be addressed. I\'m glad you enjoyed the story!
