I'm working on second first novel in RL, and cut my teeth in fanfiction with Star Trek: Enterprise. Stargate: Atlantis is definitely my shiny new obsession. :)

I've written stories with other authors here as well:

Leah and Springwoof
Leah and Bastet
Leah and Kageygirl
Leah and Mmmchelle

My stories as taste_is_sweet are here

Ferris Wheels are cool, but I really like Monkeys.

That was absolutely lovely. I think your take on Teyla's character is perfect. Leah

Author's Response: Thank you! :-) I'm really fascinated with the Athosian culture and the little glimpses of it we've seen, so I hope one day to do more with this. But in the meantime, I'm glad folks are enjoying it! :-)

That was great. Very sweet, and very, very funny. My only wish is that Rodney could have gotten to fall in love, too. (With Carson, maybe? ) Thank you so much for archiving! Leah

Author's Response: Glad you liked it! I do have an idea for a sequel titled "Love All" (continuing the tennis metaphor *g*), but only a vague one so far. And Rodney is definitely growing on me so I have no doubt I'll give him someone to love eventually, whether in this series or no. :-)

God, that's a wonderful story. I loved the progression, and the sweet, slow trickle of John's realizations. I read it again because it made me so damn happy the first time, and it was even better the second time around. Thank you.

That was a wonderful story. Absolutely wonderful. I love Ford, and it's always a treat to get to read a story about him. I thought the insights into his character and his reactions were just perfect, and I loved his conversations with Sheppard and McKay, Zelenka and Beckett. Thank you. Leah

Excellent, disturbing story, Moony. My take on it is that John was either hoping Teyla might let him fuck her--as and escape--or that she might beat the shit out of him--as a punishment for his failing. That scene was absolutely chilling. And yet the ending was strangely hopeful, despite what had gone before. Logically, too. John is nothing if not able to adapt. One of your best, Moony. Thank you so much for posting it here. Leah

Truly excellent story. I loved the circling detail of John's imagining what else could have happened, but always ending up with Sumner dead, and despite that, that he could never have saved him, the guilt is palpable, as real to the reader as it is to the character. Wonderfully well done.

That was overwhelmingly amazing. Some of the best fic I've ever read. You guys have heaped a universe of emotion here, and all of it achingly beautiful. I was almost in tears, too. I would dearly love to read more of this, maybe next season when we see how it ends. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you, sweetie. I'm thrilled you were moved. Honestly, this fic was a pleasant surprise. It was supposed to be much lighter, but the show kept getting darker and it took our story with it. In the end I was damned proud of it. Knowing you liked it makes me very happy. --chelle

Terrific story! I thought the interaction between John and Rodney was great, and very necessary after "Sanctuary." The return to their easy friendship was heartwarming.

Very cool story! I like the idea of John occasionally sleepwalking due to stress, and his fear of the possible reprecussions of it. I'd love to read a story where that actually happened. I also really enjoyed the burgeoning McShep as well. :-)

Wonderfully sweet story. I really like the sibling-esque relationship between McKay and Sheppard, squabbling and all. ;->

Author's Response: Thank you! :) I'm glad you liked it. I'm torn between keeping my fics gen or making them slash lol I can see both that sibling-esqueness as well as the slash. :P

These are terrific. I love 'missing scenes' stuff, and I can't wait to see what you've got planned--playing with the shield during "Hide and Seek," perhaps? Whatever you've planned will doubtless be great. :-)

That was beautiful, and tragic. I loved the gentle, bittersweetly hopeful ending, but even if Rodney has an artist's hands, he doesn't think he has an artist's soul, and that's far more important. I wonder if John can help heal that, though it seems John is in need of healing himself, which Rodney may not be able to give him.

Author's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! You very much got what I was trying to do with the story. Possibly better than I did. ;-)

You are one hell of a talent. This is your best story that I've read so far, and that's saying a great deal. This was heartbreaking and riviting; I would dearly love to know what happens next, as I would dearly love for Rodney to be happy by the end of this series. I wonder if John even knows how done-in Rodney has been by him? Incredible story. Just excellent.

Terrific story, Ellex! I'm very glad I was able to help you with it, and thank you so much for the sweet mention! The scene with Rodney in the Hive ship just about broke my heart, and the last chapter was terrific--Rodney's reaction to John's comment about having a little brother was so sweet it made me grin. Please do put a link to this on the Wraithbait list, so others can enjoy it. It was wonderful.

I had no problem knowing who was speaking, my self. This was gorgeous--beautifully poetic and and quietly devestating. I would love to read a sequel that occurs after John survives (because we know he will, even if the characters don't), to find out what happens to the three of them, and if Elizabeth keeps her promise to herself. This was wonderful.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'd kinda like to see that sequel myself--cross your fingers that "The Siege Part III" is as inspiring as Part II. :-)

Hey--finally got to reading this, at least a week later than I said I would, for which I'm sorry. I really like the changes you made, and the fallout from John's spur-of-the-moment impulsiveness. Of course, I liked the happy ending the best. It was really sweet. :-)
