Aw man this is so cute, which means there is going to be a cooresponding level of awful when Rodney finds out the evil truth. Even though it was all his own idea.

Author's Response: I know what you mean! Glad you are finding this cute :)

Thanks for the background. Interesting easy to read presentation, which is not easy to do with large amounts of information. I'm really not in a rush and would love to see more chapters concerning each man's individual thoughts and feelings, but there is a part of me that is starting to tense up waiting for the explosion. No pressure. ;)

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words about my presentation - I was worried that my writing might be too informationally dense at times, but that\'s my style at the moment :)
\r\n
\r\nI think there will be about 8-10 more chapters for this story; unfortunately that\'s only a rough estimate as this is only the second fic I\'ve written, and my first long one, so I have no basis for comparison lol.

This is so good. I feel so sorry for both of them because I know the reveal is gonna hurt. On the other hand since Bates is out of the picture maybe nobody ever has to know.

Author's Response: I know exactly what you mean!

Not the middle of the typical action sequence, but I still have the endorphine rush from the cliffie. Excellent buildup.

Author's Response: Thank you very much - I\'m glad you liked it :)

Relationships deserve time and attention to detail. Besides at some point Bates, or someone who knows him is going to make trouble even if it doesn't happen until after your story ends, so the more time and development the better.

And I'm not just saying that to get another 30 or 40 chapters out of you. Of course if you just happen to be overcome by the urge to write them...I'm sure I wont be the only one standing in line to read them.

Author's Response: I\'m relieved to hear you say that, this story seems to have it\'s own rate of progression and it refuses to be hurried. As long as I feel it\'s still working and not dragging on pointlessly, I\'ll take time over it. I used to have a rough idea of how long this story would be, but now I haven\'t a clue - this fact is both liberating and terrifying lol.

A wonderful chapter in so many ways.

I was on the edge of the seat all the way through Ford's conversation with McKay - worried he'd say the wrong thing.

You are such a tease. Thanks for putting forth the effort with the longer fic - from a reader stand point its amazing.

Author's Response: Hello, I\'m really glad you liked this chapter. Have to admit I was quite pleased with the way it turned out myself :)
\r\n
\r\nThe thing about Ford is that he means well, but his mouth runs away with him ;) I thought that it might be fun to spice things up with a bit of Ford and his big old chatterbox mouth for a change, plus I enjoyed writing him before and thought he deserved some more time in the fic.
\r\n
\r\nI\'m glad you enjoy the longer fic, or as I\'m starting to call it, \'The Fic that Ate New York\'. This thing\'s a monster and I\'m worried that it\'s dragging on too long, but I just feel the need to make the evolution of the relationship slow and vaguely realistic. Next thing you know I\'ll be detailing what they have for breakfast, which colour of socks they\'re wearing on a daily basis, and how many spoonfuls of sugar they have in their coffee lol.

Taking care of someone when they are sick - John's got it baaaad.

Thank you for making the decision to write longer stories and sticking to it.

Author's Response: I thought having John take care of Rodney would show how he feels about him, even if he hasn\'t quite realised it as yet. I can\'t picture John volunteering to nurse someone unless he\'s very fond of the person - can you? Every now and then I do bang my head off the desk and wonder why I decided to write this monster of a story (well it feels like a lot of writing to me, it\'s probably peanuts compared to some fanfic *g*), but I am enjoying the process of getting to take my time and analyse things. It really was a good idea for me to post this publicly, otherwise I would never have kept going. The encouragement and desire for updates really helps me keep going.
Chapter 15: Care and Concern

Summary: A shocking crime in Atlantis leads to Sam bringing in an expert from Earth. Sam Carter/Olivia Benson (Law & Order Special Victims Unit crossover)

Surprisingly smooth cross - I guess you can tell I wasn't expecting it to be.

The way things came together really seemed to work. Once I started reading the only complaint was that it was too short. I wanted Olivia and Sam to have more time together, and more investigation. Greedy of me I know.

Author's Response: Believe me, I wasn\'t expecting it to go so smoothly! I\'m glad I won you over!\r\n\r\nAnd yes, it\'s a very good sign when someone complains a 10,000 word story is too short. ;-D Never say never, though, because I DO have a vague idea for a third adventure with these two. I blame it on the SVU Season 4 DVDs I got for Christmas ;-D
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Project Atlantis is a top secret think tank located in the Pacific Northwest. Acastus Kolya, the project's second in command, has been using its resources for his own agenda, and now he's eager to play with his newest specimen - John Sheppard.

Chapter 7: Chapter 7

Summary: Written for leyenn in response to her request as part of the SGA Secret Santa fic exchange. She asked for "McKay/Sheppard as an established relationship prior to going to Atlantis. Bonus points for fitting it into canon as much as possible, cherry on top for someone/everyone/Atlantis finding out about their relationship. I love angst and an eventual happy ending." Well, I tried my best to fulfill all of these criteria!

I read the reviews first so I was ready for the time switches. While its not a format I'm crazy about – the time and events can be difficult for reader and writer to track, and the cliffies are usually in the most frustrating places – but this really worked well. The events and the breaks were well timed.

Could never understand why, even considering potential unknown character depths, Major Sheppard used part of his allotment to bring that particular book. Yours explanation is currently tied for first place in my private polls.

When Rodney suggests, and John shuts him down the love runnith over in the best of ways.

The presentation of their relationship was wonderfully done.

Thanks for writing this story.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for such a detailed review - it\'s always wonderful to hear what bits in particular people liked! I\'m so glad you liked the structure after all - I thought hard about whether or not to do it, but it just seemed to fit with the story. I did hope that if I kept the time shifts set - i.e. Present Rodney POV, Past Rodney POV, Present John POV, Past John POV, repeat - and called the story \"Now and Then\", I could get away with both using them and not having to sub-title each one. I\'m glad you like the \"W&P\" bit, I had lots of fun trying to work bits of characterisation from canon into this, and it just seemed so perfect that Rodney was in Russia for a time and John was reading \"W&P\"! And to hear that the you found the relationship believable - best feedback possible. :) Thank you so much!! cep xxx

Short and Intense. I haven't read much Ronon/John but if the others I passed by are anything like yours I'll definitely have to reconsider.

Author's Response: I\'m delighted you\'ve enjoyed the series! And I\'m flattered; it\'s always a great compliment to have someone say they\'re reconsidering a pairing based on one of my stories. I\'m very fond of Sheppard and Ronon together, and there are some good stories out there - I hope you find some others that you enjoy.\r\n\r\nI always feel odd pointing at my own stories, but if you\'re interested and haven\'t already seen it, I have another (earlier) John/Ronon series (starts with Practical, also here on Wraithbait).
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: "He can't be," said Rodney. "He was with us the entire time we were duking it out with the Wraith for control of the drug market. He helped take out the Genii cartel when they made a move on our territory. How could he possibly be FBI?"

Fluff (not that I usually think of Captain Jack as fluffy) to ... I can't really think of the appropriate word. Dark just doesn't express all the layers.

Wonderfully put together.

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I\'m glad the descent into darkness worked. :)

Now that's an introduction. I could so see Rodney in the situation you described at work and on the street. The heroic rescue by the man in black was priceless. No offense, because I read them sometimes, but maybe Harlequin should be looking for you.

Rodney at work figuring things out – you made it so sexy.

Schrodinger, Jeanne, and even Brian made me cry. Now I'll have to read the rest of the story with a stuffy nose – you evil author you. : }

Do you have any idea how easy it is to choke when you are laughing hysterically with a stuffed up nose? Mary Poppins? OMG!

Sweet.

Author's Response: It wouldn\'t be the first time someone suggested Harlequin to me, but alas (how\'s that for a nice Harelquin word?)they do not see fit to publish slash. Making people cry and laugh during the same story is all part of my master evil plan, heh-heh-heh. So glad you sucumbed...I mean enjoyed!! (Thanks--big grin here)

Definitely by Susan [NC-17]

Summary: "Don't fuss. I don't like the prospect of ordering Udder Cream because you can't keep from sucking."

Rodney was definitely not gay. Definitely not. Except when he was touching John.

I've done enough reading tonight that I really don't have much brain left, but you've juiced what little was left.

This is the most amazing piece, and you kept the pov straight all the way through. wow.

Author's Response: I know what you mean. You exaust yourself by reading fic for hours, and then finally, you find something you would have really liked if you were not falling asleep at the computer. I am thoroughly suprized you still reviewed after being that tired. I am so very happy that you thought it was hot. Unfortunately, I\'ve read it so many times, that it is the farthest thing from hot for me right now. Thanks sooo freaking much for the review! Glad the POV was still understandable though the story. That is very helpful to me.

It had never occurred to me to wonder what if all the gates and planets weren't so close.

Tantalizing.

Kinda reminds me of some old Anne M. early Ship Who stuff, butmore interesting - perhaps due to the lack of pressure to provide sufficient similarity between species.

I hope Rodney remembers ZPMs.
