I write Slash.

Sometimes, I write Gen.

Once, I wrote Het, but I won't torture you all with that- it was REALLY BAD.

Often, I write drabbles.

Almost always, I write fic for my friends. We are a rather diverse group of people, but we are all twisted in our own special ways.

I am very very new to the SGA fandom, and I've not had the nerve to post anything from it yet. Maybe soon though. I would tell you what sorts of stories I tend to write, but for SGA, I don't know yet. My HP stories tend to land either on the fluffy side or the darkside- I'm not really good with the in between there- but I'm not sure that'll remain true for SGA. We'll just have to see.

To read Drabbles and other very short fics from me, visit my InsaneJournal.

You have a thing for revenge, don't you? Typically, I don't like revenge in fics much. I think it makes the characters seem that much less perfect, that much more real, and then I just start getting worried about my sanity. But I seem to like the way you wrote Rodney here. *shrug* I'm gonna say that's a good thing.

Author's Response: I used to, yeah. I think I prefer flaws and emotion to perfection. :) Thank you for commenting.

So, I just spent the past two days reading through this whole series. I couldn't stop. o_0 It was AWESOME, and I really hope you write more to it eventually. I mean, it's good where it stands but you've an amazing talent for writing the plotty-goodness and I'd love to see more from this universe. Great job, dear! ^_^

Author's Response: That\'s great, I\'m really glad you\'ve enjoyed it so far! I am working on more, but it will take a while...

Summary: I am going to tell you a story. About Dr. McKay and how he bought an eye from me, and how that one small act led to the strangest night in my entire life.

The end of this made me squee a bit. I really liked this. Very interesting idea, this eye thing. I liked it a lot actually. I also really liked the tone of the narrator. Good job!
Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: Evan Lorne absolutely does not have a crush on Rodney McKay. That's why his latest assignment - filling in for Colonel Sheppard off-world after an injury during a heroic rescue mission - will not be a problem at all. Nope, not in the least. Also featuring, in no particular order, botanical mischief, alien purity rituals, yoga, and bonus Winchester action.

Lorne makes my life. ^_^ So far this is awesome and I can't wait to see what kind of trouble the boys get into off world. I'm usually a McShep or John/Evan shipper, so this is different for me, but I like the way you hae their relationships with each other set up so far.

Also, I don't watch Supernatural, but I have several friends who do, and it still took me until the end of the second part to figure out who the Winchesters were. At first I though they might have been married... o_0 *facepalm*

Author's Response: Heh heh heh. I tend to like some of the stranger pairings, and McKay/Lorne is one of my favorites. You may see a bit of those other two turn up in the next fic of the series, along with Bonus Cam.\r\n\r\nAs for the Winchesters, they\'re /brothers/. They don\'t do that! Really! At least not in this universe, where they aren\'t nearly as fucked-up and codependent. Poor guys.
Chapter 1: Section 1

Summary: As capable as he's turning out to be, she's still surprised to discover there's a brain beneath that hair. And how does it stand up like that? Super glue?

I have this thing where I can't stand Rodney as a girl. John as a girl? Ok. Ronon as girl? Awesome. Radek as a girl? HILARIOUS. Rodney, not so much. But I LIKE this. I can't wait for you to write more, even. You may yet win me over to girl!Rodney you keep going like this. Keep up the good work! ^_^
