Rodney stared openly as John turned back in his direction, leaned out a long, tanned arm and snagged some of Rodney's fries. He dropped them into his mouth when he leaned back, exposing a long line of throat that Rodney suddenly found very compelling.
Rodney even forgot to protest about the theft of his food.

This is lovely. I'm glad Rodney finally got to ask John to stay. Thanks!

Very nice storytelling. I particularly liked Rodney in these stories - his usual neurotic self, but noticably strong, too. Thanks for the great adventures.
Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I really spend a lot of time agonizing over getting my characters to sound like the "real" ones. I love to hear that I succeeded.
Five gods John Sheppard never worshipped.

Wow, this is so totally cool! Each one haunting in its own way. Thanks
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it.

Lovely. The word 'poignant' doesn't quite do it justice. I love how John sees them both as the same person. Thanks
"On his worst nights, it isn't Wraith or bugs or Sumner that John dreams about, it's Rodney, hollow and broken, silently begging to be left behind."

Painful, but very cool. I like how Sheppard understands where Rodney's at. Thanks
Author's Response: Thanks for the comment
Rodney gets flamed on his Wormhole Xtreme fic list
Updated: 20 Dec 2005; Published: 19 Dec 2005
Oh, I can so totally identify with this! Er, except for the hot sex part. :( But flamers beware! Thanks for the story
Author's Response: You're welcome and flamers should beware cause you never know what can happen

I love this story! It was scary and touching and even romantic. Poor Shep and his grandma- she doesn't understand! And I liked how Rodney's ghosts were nice to him. And how Teyla and Ronon dealt with theirs. Realy unique, interesting story, and well written. Thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks for the kind feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :D
Unexpectedly blue on his first Christmas in Atlantis, John Sheppard tries to find some comfort.

Very nice first time fic. I especially liked that they actually talked about what was going on between them, and then took it slow - as opposed to the usual 'one slams the other against a wall one paragraph and they're having penetrative sex the next' formula. ;) They're building a nice foundation for their relationship. Thanks!
Author's Response: Hi. Thanks so much. I'm so glad you liked the slow build. I, too, find the wall slamming and penetrative sex next formula a little too fast for my tastes sometimes. Thanks again. Cheers.
Rodney and John are captured by the Genii.

Painful, but well done. I liked how they were there for each other and both stayed so strong despite everything. Thanks!
Author's Response: thanks so much for the feedback. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
Summary: It took Elizabeth nineteen days to negotiate John's release.

Kavanaugh and McKay, scary! But oddly believable under the circumstances. Just the kind of mistake a person might make. And Kavanaugh was in character as his disgusting self, and he Stole Rodney's Gun! You're reinforcing my Kavanaugh dislike. Thanks!
Author's Response: I was feeling in a mean mood towards Kav... and Rodney too :-) Still, at least John sorted out the Kav problem.
Sheppard and McKay are quarreling. Again.
Updated: 02 Jan 2006; Published: 02 Jan 2006
Fun story! I loved everyone's reactions to John and Rodney's fighting. And this: "Men. It didn't matter what galaxy they came from, they were all from another planet as far as she could tell." The best line ever! Thanks
Author's Response: I keep telling people it was fun to write and it was, but now that I think about it I was also tearing my hair out worrying about getting it done in time to submit before I went internetless during Christmas. It's a wonder it isn't really hurried and jerky. I just know Teyla gets sick of the macho posturing from the guys on the team - especially since she can kick all of their asses!
Sheppard doesn't see himself as he is; McKay isn't sure he can let it be. Women, fire, death and identity crisis cannot break a true friendship.

I waited until this was finished to read it, and am so glad it's finally done! What an interesting story idea, and so well developed. I particularly liked Rodney's slow breakdown and recovery - neither are likely to happen overnight. And I actually liked seeing some real conflict between the characters, which is realistic, if painful. Thanks very much!

Ah, 'pressed together in a tight space' fic. One of my favorite types! Seriously. Should be more. Thanks for a lovely one. :)
Turnabout is fair play.

Wow, I read this with fascination. It's scary how easily I can see the 'knife edge' in John's character. Thanks!
Time doesn't mean a lot here. Days of hatred. Days of despair. At night he wonders if they've given up looking for him, if he's been left behind, written off, forgotten.
Updated: 09 Jan 2006; Published: 09 Jan 2006
Wow, very intense. I don't usually read much het ship, but I'm glad I read this one. You could just feel John's rigidity (no pun intended *g*) in trying to survive on his own terms. I'm glad he was able to 'wrap his mind around' what he had to do at the end and bend a bit. Doing Teyla - not exactly a fate worse than death! Thanks!
Atlantis may adore John, but her subroutines love Rodney.
Updated: 19 Jun 2006; Published: 19 Jan 2006
Brilliant! That's so much fun. I love the way the subroutines have picked up McKay's speaking style. Thanks!
Author's Response: you noticed that! that's great, thank you! *happy*
It's the first mission after McKay's overdose and the team gets ambushed while Sheppard and Rodney are working out some issues.

LOL! Great idea and very fun in SO many ways. Thanks
Coda to "Grace Under Pressure." Rumours are flying around Atlantis about Rodney, a sexy Lt. Colonel, and a puddlejumper.
Updated: 01 Feb 2006; Published: 01 Feb 2006
Very nice. All those rumours flying around, things could have turned out badly. But no, happy ending! Thanks
Author's Response: Always a happy ending with me - I don't think I've written a sad fan fic. Nope - I like the boys happy, even if they have to struggle to get there.
