I must have missed this little gem because I haven't read it until now.

Great story! I loved it, don't suppose you feel like continuing the story?

Happy writing.

Author's Response: I never really thought about continuing it, but if people want me to, I\'ll have to consider. It depends on if I feel like I could add anything to it. Thanks for reading!
Chapter 1: Hidden Feelings in a Hole

Summary: Colonel Sheppard is playing Savior of the Universe. The rest of the people on Atlantis are called back to Earth. Sheppard also has a twin brother, who's a general? Atlantis is destroyed! Add in the fact that McKay is also a woman! Well, McKay's bad temper is really understandable.

This is a very odd story so far, and I was slightly lost for a few seconds at the beginning of this second chapter but I really love it. I hope you continue this one. I love stories with Rodney as a woman.

"You, soloist," Rodney said to one of the Lanteans playing an Earth instrument. "You call yourself a violinist?"

"Actually, I call myself a biochemist," Simpson said.

"Jinto, you're soloist now. Simpson, get back in the section." He took a moment to glare at her. "Miss one more F sharp and he replaces you in the chemistry department too."

As the sounds of the audience applauding the last group rolled through the amphitheater, the orchestra as one suddenly turned to Rodney. He could tell they wanted some kind of pep talk.

"Um," he said. "Don't suck."

These just make it for me. Great story!

I love genderswitch stories. This one made me sad in the end though, that he was a man again. I suppose it's because I have babies though, I can't imagine sundenly not being the mommy.

LOL well that and the fact that they will have outed themselves either way. So much for DADT, pretty obvious when you have kids lol.

Great story.

Author's Response: I love babies and children so I wrote a sequel with a MPRG warning. Rodney is pregnant again and Daniel Jackson too.\r\nCassie and Rodney Jr. are 10 and drive their parents up the wall :-)\r\nThank you very much for your review.
Chapter 4: Chapter 4

Summary: "Jack sighed, leaning back in his chair. It had been three weeks since he'd asked Rodney McKay to come up with terms for continued work on the Atlantis Project. The man had emailed him the document within ten hours, Jack had glanced at it and submitted it for review with the Secretary of Defense and the IOA. There were, of course, a few snags..."

Slight AU, pre-SGA

This is just too funny, great story, do you plan to write more ?

Author's Response: Thank you! I hadn\'t planned on writing more, but several people have mentioned that they\'d like more, and I\'m such a pushover that I\'ll probably give in eventually. :)

So they fly back to the origional planet that they started on ?

I only ask because they moved planets when after season 3.

It's a great story, either way. I loved how you quietly and easily removed Keller from the equasion. I don't really care for her with Rodney, he can do better lol. I'll probably always hold out hope that he'll either end up with Carter or Sheppard lol.

Author's Response: Yeah, I took them back to Lantea since they didn\'t have to hide from the Replecators any more, and I missed Sam. LOL I\'m very glad you liked the story, and believe me, in my world? Rodney ends up with John. ;-)

I love this story. Of course, my favorite pairing. I was delighted to see it, I love the way it is written. It seems perfect for them, to come together in this way.

I'm begging you to write another!

I loved reading this story. It's not my normal pairing, is it anyones? lol.
I love stranded together stories.

It was a well written story, fun pairing. And I love how they had to work up to a relationship.
It seemed sad at the end but was better that Jack found a child that needed him, a child he somewhat shared with Carter.
I was a little teary when Sam told Daniel of her name choice.

Great fic.

Author's Response: I like stranded stories too :) I\'m glad you enjoyed mine! Thanks for the feedback!
