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.

Enjoying this, as ever. :-) Only, it made me very sad to think that Sheppard didn't even get to name the Puddle Jumpers! I hope he won't be *too* marganalized in this series, since he's been awesome on his own...

Author's Response: sorry - there are beside sumner and jack three other ranking officers with sgc experience along. he did the best he could in canon, but this is abut how "jack" would take care of things.

I'm glad their friendship survived--but I don't think John would. :-)Overdosing on Tylenol does permenant liver damage.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing. I had a friend who overdosed on Tylenol, she's never mention liver damange, so I'm hoping that's not true for her sake. As for John he'll at least survive for a few years.

Thank you. That scene ruined the ep for me, and I was hoping someone would address the aftermath of Rodney having thoughtlessly shot at his friend. This was great.

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked the fic. :-)

Hee hee hee. Pinky! I think you would've had me at the image of John in a rakishly tilted fedora, but the set-up was fantastic, and the details--like the nick-names, the positions, the mob history--so much fun. I'd enjoy reading more of this, but I feel badly for Kolya... :)

Author's Response: Oh, but John would look so yummy in that kind of outfit, wouldn't he? You've got to check out the rest of the answers to that request-list. Really awesome crackfic. The Rodneysaur! Heehee!

Thank you so very, very much with helping me reconcile Rodney *shooting* John, not only with the McShep thing, but with the fact that at least in season one Rodney knew how to use a gun. You actually made that make sense, and in an excellent story to boot. The last line was fantastic. :D

Author's Response: Honestly, I think that if Rodney were as bad with a gun as he's appeared Season 2, John wouldn't let him have one! LOL

I've been hoping you would archive this story here. Thank you so much for having it on the WB list, as well. This is the first (and only) story I've read that's dealt with rape and felt realistic without being preachy or depressing. I read this months ago, but I've been thinking about it for a long time. It's truly one of your best, and that's saying a hell of a lot.

Author's Response: I was planning on archiving the fic at WB. I was just too lazy to do the formatting. But I can't watch TV and not do something else, so I formatted it while watching Wiseguy last night. I'm thrilled you felt it was realistic without being preachy, because that is exactly what I wanted. I really wanted to tell a story that would incorporate a realistic look at what survivors experience yet still be true to Rodney. I fretted quite a bit about that, actually, keeping him Rodney instead of a generic victim. Knowing you liked the story means a great deal because I have such respect for your writing.

Lovely story. Wonderfully hopeful, but the underlying loss nearly had me in tears. The idea that John is dead is terrible. But it was also good to see that life can go on.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reading and enjoying it. I hope that perhaps we can see more Teyla/Mckay stories...and even if no one else carries the torch, I'm going to do more! :)

Hee hee hee. There actually *is* an annual Star Trek Convention in Toronto, by the way--Toronto Trek. It has loads of stuff from other fandoms, too. I might have gone there once dressed as a member of an SG team. Maybe. Or twice. :) And the newspaper you were thinking of is just "The Toronto Star." Wow, do I miss my home city! Thank you for the giggle.

Author's Response: glad to make you smile! :) I made up the newspaper and convention names totally randomly on purpose--I don't know their "real" equivalents well enough to fake them convincingly. But if they fit, you can certainly imagine the SGA & SG-1 gangs there!

Chapter 1: The Swedish Solution

Summary: When Lorne arrived with Ronon, they'd busted in the room, and found Rodney's lifeless corpse beside me. If they'd taken just one more day to find us, I wouldn't be stuck living this pain every single day. One day longer. Then again, if they'd been a day earlier, I would't be living this pain, either. Better to think the former, because the latter only made me murderous.

That was terrific. Painfully realistic and sad. And the ending somehow made it worse, despite the touch of comfort.

Author's Response: Thank you! I do understand what you mean about the end being worse - that John couldn't see McKay, that McKay was leaving him. It was surprisingly hard to write (or maybe not so surpisingly for other emotional sops out there *grin*)

The subtle introduction into Maya's madness was compelling, and helped build the suspence until I was barely breathing by the end, just hoping to hell that someone would discover what was happening before it was too late. Obviously it's now too late, but I take heart in your lack of Character Death warning. Hopefully that won't be part of chapter two. :) As usual, you have created a fascinating and riviting story here, and Maya's backstory is tragic and horrifying. I'm almost afraid to read more, but I also can't wait for it. Leah

Author's Response: Oh, there will be no more--that's it. I had to end it there, for obvious reasons, and I don't plan to revisit it. But I'm glad you felt the suspense! It's hard to write an unsympathetic and insane OC, let me tell you. Thanks for your kind note!

I just want to let you know that I had it figured out as well--not that I *wanted* to... That was horribly creepy, and also really sad (Rodney and John eaten! Teyla going to be eaten, too! Nooo!). I'll just chalk it up to a fevered dream Rodney had in the infirmary, or something, so I don't have to think about it. :) Great story, but, urk. ::shivers::

Author's Response: I know, I kind of hate myself! That's what it was, he had a weird nightmare after eating some psychosis inducing Athosian fruit and then he goes running to Shep's quarters, finds him there in one piece and jumps him. Yep, that's what really happened. Thanks for the feedback (I worried I was a bit too mysterious describing what was going on but it looks I might just have scraped by). :o) glad you liked the story, sorry for the shivers!
