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 NEAT. Really unexpected and fascinating. Thank you very much for the hopeful ending.

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I realized when I was writing it that it needed a happier ending than the one I had originally planned. I\'m glad to know this one worked. :)

Fantastic remix! A lot of fun, and just right with the bittersweet. I almost like this Rodney better, which is an awful thing to say. This John is a little scary, though. I wonder what else in John's universe is different? Or is it just that Rodney didn't survive the doppleganger? Thank you for the fic! Leah

Author's Response: Poor Rodney--he\'s built up his counterpart in his head to be some kind of superhero so that he feels he has a lot to live up to! As for John--I think he\'s just lost too many in too short a time--and losing Rodney to the doppleganger was the kicker. I\'m so glad you enjoyed it!

Very suspenseful, confusing--in a good way!--and fun story. I was surprised that the ending was exactly what Zelenka said it was. I thought it was going to be virtual reality, or Rodney in a coma. Neat surprise. :)

Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes the right answer is the simplest...though in SGA universe that could mean just about anything. :)

I've read this fic twice now, so I probably should tell you how much I enjoyed it. I especially liked the unforeseen 'catch'--that Woolsey was actually sympathetic. Once again, you have dazzled with your humour and warmth. Thank you.

Awesome! There's another fic very similar to this in the mckay_sheppard community on Live Journal, and it made me smile to see that more than one author had the same thought. And what a great thought it is. This is exactly what Rodney would do, and it fits canon perfectly. Well done. :)

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it - and it\'s always nice to know that others think the same way too! Thanks.

Second to None by Madison [NC-17]
[Reviews - 15]

Great sequel. :D The nightmares were indeed creepy as hell and perfect for Jay's situation. I have to admit I *didn't* like the fact that the whole expedition knew he wasn't the original and went along with it--that seemed a bit to deus ex machina for me, I'm afraid--but I understand why you wanted to add it, though I honestly didn't think it was necessary. John had already proved himself by then, even if there had been any question of his having the right to claim the rank and position. But lest you think otherwise, I really enjoyed this. I loved Jay's POV, and how you wrote Caldwell as driven but reasonable. This is a fascinating universe. (Any possibility of us getting the story you mentioned where Rodney is the replacement? That would be icing on the cake.... ::g::) Leah

Author's Response: You have a really good point about the deus ex machina--I guess once I opened that can of worms I didn\'t see any way for Jay to stay unless the deception was openly accepted (okay, I admit it, I just like writing clueless!John). I see what you mean though. Thanks for giving me such excellent and detailed feedback--it really helps alot! As for Rodney...;-)

I really loved your concept of the Mensa Verse, and especially Rod's John. It made me so happy that the story ended up all right in the end! Though I have to admit I was confused as to why the Johns needed new security numbers and promotions and such--didn't they just take over the other person's lives?

Author's Response: I would assume that the SGC, having all its experience with alternate-people, recognises that they are *not* the same (apparently, there was an evil!SG1...?). So while they don\'t mind the Johns sharing clothes, Mensa!John is not entitled to our!John\'s military rank and our!John would not inherit Mensa!John\'s academic degrees. Or so I assumed! But who knows? I learnt the art of people-duplication from Calvin & Hobbes *g* Thanks for reading!

Excellent. Scary and confusing and fascinating, and I especially loved how *no* death was acceptable to Rodney, even if John got rescued because of it. Because that is exactly how I think of him. Thank you.
