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.

Great story. A perfect missing scene and episode tag. You can really feel their friendship her, and John's relief, and it's wonderful.

Author's Response: Yay! Thanks! As much as I ship these two, their friendship is incredibly important to me (I think I get more emotional about *that* than I do the \'shipping stuff), so this is great to hear. Thanks again ^^
Chapter 1: What Really Matters

Summary: Teyla and Rodney spend some time stuck in a puddlejumper and discover that their feelings for each other aren't as unrequited as they thought--but life is rarely uncomplicated, and this is no exception.

Lovely, sweet story. I loved the gentleness and the depth of Rodney's honour and their affection.

Author's Response: Thanks hon! I was really iffy on this story so it\'s great to hear you liked it :) I fuss too much sometimes!

Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: John still remembered Rodney's face when he'd first shown the team his gift. He'd often wondered since whether what he'd seen lurking in the shadows behind blue eyes had been thankfulness that someone had paid attention to the other man's needs...or a hope that someone might in the future.

Wow. That's so sad. And the fact that it feels real--that this, and not our happy, shippy imaginings is how it goes--just makes it feel worse. Well done. But, God.

Author's Response: Yeah, John really tore my heart out with this. Quiet acceptance and sad resignation is almost sadder, you know? Thanks for the feedback :) <3

Very clever. I like how this dovetails with canon very much, and the implied collusion with the SGA staff. John's reaction to what he's done feels exactly right. Well done.

Author's Response: Thank you for that lovely review. I love being told that I have the character\'s \"voices\" right. Thanks again.

Really, really nice. I love how much promise is packed into the last little portion. The art was indeed fabulous, too. :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! That\'s kind of how I felt, too--it was odd, when I started to write about how John felt about Antarctica, I was filled with emotion, and that\'s the result. Hee. Elli\'s art did a great job of emotional counterpoint, I thought!

Heh. I didn't notice that this was you, at first--silly me! Definitely worth it. I'm sure Rodney does know what John's doing. At least, that's what I'm sticking with. ;->

I'm really enjoying catching up on your story catalogue! Beautiful illustration (as usual) to go with a pitch-perfect Sheppardian story of self-denial-as-road-to-redemption. I loved how Rodney was always there with him, even when he physically wasn't.

Author's Response: I can see that you\'ve been having fun -cool! This story came about because of Joe\'s position in the illustration (from \'Farewell to Harry\'). I began wondering how it could happen for John Sheppard, why he\'d be in civilian clothes on Earth and the story took off. I love when that happens and I\'m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks!

Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: Sometimes, when Teyla's jumping him in the indoor arena, he can hear Rodney telling off the other show horses in the paddock on the other side from John's, commenting on how poorly they held themselves or how he can't believe that they're actually permitted to pass on their genes when they're all – obviously – incompetent idiots.
SLIGHT McShep pairing mentioned, but only actually there if you want it to be. Could be considered crack!fic.
