excellent storytelling! I'm a big AU fan, and this was a great one. you had me blubbering when they had their big fight...

Author's Response: Cool, you're a huge AU fan too, huh? I absolutely adore AUs, as you can obviously tell. I'm thrilled to hear you liked their big fight. That was my favourite chapter to write. Thanks so much for reviewing and I'm flattered you liked the story!

Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: Her energy signature just winked out. Her energy was gone. Gone, like she'd never existed. Gone like Atlantis had been scrubbed clean of her presence. Like the flicking of a light switch, like the dousing of a flame.

A story starring Archaeologist Garret Corrigan, set in the same AU as Aegis.

Yay! You posted! I love how vivid this story is. The first part, during the siege /nightmare, was especially gripping. And the part with poor Garret in the pit was almost *painfully* vivid. I like your OC, Happy. She's very real without going over the top. And I like Garret's Gift and how you fleshed it out. very cool!

Author's Response: Wow! Thanks so much SW!!!\r\n\r\nHey! My first review on WRAITHBAIT!!!\r\n\r\nI\'m really, really glad you liked it :)\r\nSq

very nice! I liked Rodney's blunt negotiation style and I liked the real affection and care of Elizabeth and the team for Rodney. I liked the scene where Elizabeth pointed out that Rodney did *not* act the way the Asurians had shown him in his vision: "You've placed yourself between me and danger several times, Rodney. That's what's real, not whatever you saw." I also liked the "who's the best diplomat" byplay between Teyla & Elizabeth. Very nice interpersonal dynamics overall. Thanks for an enjoyable fic!

Author's Response: Such specific praise from someone whose stories I have always enjoyed is amazingly gratifying! I guess I really should check for comments, shouldn\'t I? :)
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: It's funny, because he can imagine Rodney's outrage when he realised that of all things, the soul was the one thing that couldn't be measured. (Tag for 4.20 The Last Man)

Pinpoint by Squeaky [PG-13]

Summary: Chuck felt a slow burn of anger ignite deep in his gut. "There's lots of people who can't control their Gifts," he said slowly. "I happen to be one of them."

A story staring Gate Technician Chuck Campbell, set in the same AU as Aegis. Sequel to Winking Out, though you don't necessarily need to read that story to understand this one. :)

You really made Chuck come alive here! I love his backstory and wish the SGA writers would be half so decent to him. I love the way all the Major SGA characters become supporting characters and the minor characters like Chuck and Corrigan, Stackhouse and Markham, become the stars. Finally, I really liked your OCs, Martine and Happy--they're real and vivid. This was a very moving and exciting story, and I'm so pleased and proud that you are playing in our AU. *hugs* springwoof

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the incredibly kind words, SW! :::hugglesthewoof::: I am so pleased that you\'re pleased! It really means\r\na lot to me. And... after you and Leah post your sequel to *Aegis*, I\'m gonna write a story for Blair \'Boom-Boom\' Kaufman...\r\nThanks again for letting me play in your AU! Sq
Chapter 1: One of One

Summary: Rodney suddenly had two good friends he was simultaneously in love with. And he desperately wanted to believe that love wasn't an either-or, except if the two people one was in love with didn't also love each other, one ended up with the unfortunate prospect of having to choose one of them or none at all.

wonderful! So very Rodney! and so very John, all self-sacrificial. I liked how you treated Jennifer, too. Worthy of love and loved by Rodney, but ultimately happy with (and making happy) Ronon. Ronon should get the girl sometimes too!
(also, your descriptions of Jennifer and Rodney's dates and breakup were hilariously apt.)
