Oh, this is *so much fun* and somehow sweet at the same time.

Thank you so much for this story. I laughed all the way through it.

Oh, oh. This is *so* well done. I love that McKay's still in character, but I just had to review this chapter to express my appreciation of the McKay-Kavanagh moment. So rare.

*warm fuzzies*

Author's Response: Thank you! I like Kavanagh, actually. He\'s an ass, but he\'s upfront about it.

Chapter 3: 3/3 Trinity's End

Summary: AU - John Sheppard is High Lord of the Planet Leiath in the Pegasus Galaxy. Rodney's away team gets captured by John's soldiers. Started out as an attempt to write EVIL John Sheppard but it came out more like completely non-evil, but snarky, John Sheppard.

I love this story, but it nags at me that John would be able to use an Earth weapon if he's never even seen one before.

Just wanted to mention that. *happily goes back to reading*

Author's Response: Sorry not to respond to this sooner. I\'m glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I thought about John being able to dismantle and put the earth weapon back together but I figured his people are at a par or slightly advanced technically and he\'s the leader of his people and a soldier so he\'d have some familiarity with such weapons. Kind of similar to how Ronon was able to take to earth weapons right away. Plus it made Rodney cranky :)

I'm glad you don't take drugs. This is awesome. You even added a bit of action and drama to it.

I hope there's more, actually. :)

Author's Response: Thank you! And no, no drugs. I even gave up smoking. ;)
Chapter 1: Routines

Summary: John Sheppard is determined to bring to ruin the villainous McKay family. But young (ok, youngish) Rodney interferes with his plans. Okay, so this is what comes of reading the Harlequin SGA website which triggers memories of reading a thousand Regency/Historical novels as an impressionable youngster (**eek**, no wonder I'm twisted). The result is this complete and utter cliche **heh**. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of any of the historical/british terms and settings depicted in this story. They are from my fuzzy memory of romance novels. Nuff said.

Awww. I've enjoyed reading this story so, so much. The chapter where Rodney met Radek made me wave my arms wildly through the air and make happy wordless noises, but I was distracted by the end of the chapter and forgot to write it in a review. This whole story is so wonderful, and I absolutely love your characterization of everyone. Thank you so much for this story.

(and, in the beginning of this chapter, in "...unconscious Kavanagh in toe", it should be 'tow'.)

Author's Response: And thank you! Writing this got me through one particularly annoying tax season. The response to it was so, so awesome to get. And you\'re the first person to catch the \'toe\' versus \'tow\' thing. Thanks for letting me know. I\'ll have to fix that :)

Um. Before I read the next chapter, I'd like to tell you that this story rocks. So hard.

Fabulous characterization, and I like your alternate universe. I love the detail about Rodney's... um, laughter. It's adorable.

The ending is *wonderful*. Thanks for writing this.

Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m very glad you enjoyed it! I think Cross Product (the first chapter in this archive) is the best story I\'ve written in a long time.

The *ending*.

I'm too blissed out (or something) about the ending, and the whole story, to even think of the proper words. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you! Folks seemed to like the ending (probably because the story is so darned angsty to get there:)

This is... wonderful. It has kept me enthralled for several hours, and I thank you for writing it. I love the situation, the way you combine Atlantis with Beauty and the Beast, and the characterizations are lovely. I love the way John's character is slightly different for the situation.

And, given that most au's with Kolya include Rodney being tortured, I'm glad that didn't happen.

Thanks for writing this! I'm off to your page after I submit this and add the story to my favorites.

Author's Response: Beauty and the Beast might just be my favorite fairy tale and I love universe building (even if the universe I\'m building is just a sorta-accurate version of a hundred years ago). Thanks for the feedback!

This is - this is the most wonderful Rodney/Radek story I've read, and the fact that I've only read about three doesn't mean a thing, not a thing, because this is so *fantastic*! And wonderful!

The emotions, the characterization, Radek's voice and Rodney expecting to be horribly pummeled and down one friend, and Sheppard's ending statement. Those are my favorite bits. Thank you. :)

This is one of my favorite stories. *adds it*
