On a dark and stormy afternoon, wolves howled as Shaddyr entered the world. She's pretty much been making people bay at the moon ever since.

The daughter of a highly motivated, independent mother from Northern Manitoba, and a laid-back, take-things-as-they-come father from the Deep South, Shaddyr found herself highly motivated to think long and hard about doing nothing at all. She is extremely skilled in the fine arts of procrastination, avoidance and minimizing. She has also learned the secret to looking busy while doing nothing at all.

A geek and a nerd long before these things were fashionable, Shaddyr has been a die-hard SF fan since childhood. While the other kids were watching Romper Room, she cut her teeth on Lost in Space, Space 1999 and ST:TOS. While looking for Star Trek books in the library one day, Shaddyr discovered the existence of other SF. Heinlein, Ellison, L'Engle and McCaffry, led to deeper levels of addiction. A true SF junkie, she reads voraciously, ever in search of the next fix.

These days, Shaddyr amuses herself by cooking up fanfics about Pretenders, Sexy English vampires and Stargate personnel. On occasion she adds some music, stirs vigorously and bakes up a filk.

Oh good lord. I don't know how Rodney managed without melting down altogether. He must have been derailed and offline for a major portion of each day after getting each note.

What a wonderful, wonderful story.

I love the way you entwine what John is going through into a dream about WWII. Amazing detail and research in that - and lovely little cameos by the other characters we love.

I was devastated with John died. I loved how Radek sent him off and how he begged Paddy to live for him and John - heartbreaking, poignant and beautiful.

Ahh, Rodney. The timing does rather suck. And now John has something to live for that is all for him.

Also. I damn near died laughing at all the brilliant lines - Rodney telling John to read the fine print, for example. OMG. You're a genius, and I love your big sexy writer brain *SO MUCH*

Author's Response: Thank you for such a glowing review! You made me laugh out loud and it was a nice way to finish off a rough day at work. I\'m so glad you enjoyed the story!

This? Is one very seriously fucked up Rodney McKay. Oh, My. God. For him to go this deeply over the bend - geeze. I'm not sure I'd have been able to read the story leading up to it. I'm glad you didn't tell us cuz it had to be hienous. And yeah, if Sheppard was there, if he watched, if he *saw*, and he couldn't stop it? He's probably been plotting his own revenge and watching Rodney, waiting to see if he'd take the initative. Those bad guys are *so* toast. ::meep:: And Rodney is *so* going to pieces when it's all over. Oh God. Painfully, wonderfully good.

Author's Response: I\'m sure that John will be there to pick Rodney up and help piece him back together. :)

I read this the other day - it's a very emotional piece and I had to really think about how I felt about it.

I wasn't sure, at first, that I could buy Rodney doing this. And that if I did buy Rodney getting another John from another universe, I could accept that he wasn't *really* mentally unstable.

It became much easier to accept once it was established that this was an AU, and that made me reconsider why.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I could believe it; Rodney, as self-centered as he can be sometimes, really would do anything to keep the expedition and his city safe. Including doing something completely insane that may very well sacrifice his emotional and mental stability.

I am grateful you wrote a Rodney who was stable enough to handle the stress of having a Not!Really!John! back. I'm glad that Casino!John had so much of what made John *John* and didn't act like a total ass or take advantage or Rodney the way he could have.

I loved Ronon's reactions; je t'adore the scene where John is awed with the knives in Ronon's hair, and when Ronon almost squeezes the life out of him when they 'find' him again.

I love it that he makes them tell Lorne.

I *LOVE* it that Cadman *knows*.

Really awesome story. Thanks for sharing it!

Author's Response: Wow! Thank you for your really detailed and thoughtful review!Yeah, it had to be AU all the way for me for the reasons you mentioned. And Not!Really!John is the best and most fun descriptor for Jay that I\'ve had so far. :-)

Wow. Gor novels? Caldwell as a Dom? Seems way out, and yet... I totally bought the scene between Caldwell and Sheppard with the books and riding crop, and I can buy the way you have Caldwell putting John to bed. I'm so hooked.

I never read WiPs anymore, but you got me with this one...

Author's Response: Oh! I\'m not sure if the ? is because you don\'t know what they are John Norman created a world in which strong men were the ultimate rulers. Women in Norman\'s world were no more than serving beasts as were the weaker males. There are 25 novels I think. (I read a few and they were definately not for me) As for Caldwell being a Dom? LOL I just love his character, I think you could write him as positively evil and it would be believable or you can write him as the shining knight on the white charger and it will be believable, he\'s an enigma. As for not reading WiP I do tend to write kinda slowly, but I normally get them finished.

Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Shaddyr wrote Rodney SGA kitty!fic - In 'Not Your Everyday Care Package' Rodney is given a tiny kitten, but whoever could it be from??? In 'Trouble', there is kitten cooing and John and Rodney snarking... and maybe Rodney is starting to like John a little more than he should... But it all was left very teasingly unresolved. So, Shad and I were talking and trying to figure out how the next story in the series could lead to the porn... a worthy goal in any story, I always feel. Anyway, the possibilities seemed endless and we just couldn't decide... so here's one possibility... there will be more to follow...

I've read a couple of episode tags
dealing with this issue now, addressing it as an addictive or habit forming thing - which totally makes sense to me - and I keep coming back to yours.

The AU introduction of Ronon as a check and balance against John doing something stupid was very well done.

Your treatment of John, the way he would hide it from everyone, was exactly the kind of thing that I could envision happening.

I like the way John doesn't see it coming when the desire hits him like a freight train. I adore the way Rodney only hesitates for a split second before stepping up to the plate and taking care of him completely.

Author's Response: Okay, big goofy happy grin on my face now! Thanks!
