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.

And now that I've read it... Very cool au! I love aus, and this one is definitley unique. I like the backstory you've given John and Rodney, and I'm looking forward to them meeting and seeing how they get along. The next chapter should be fun. :-)

Great story. Sweet, funny, and just a little bit scary intil you know things are going to be okay. I love how obvious it is that Rodney's pretty good at keeping them both together while having to deal with an increasintly shocky/loopy John and his own quiet freaking at how hurt John is, all through John's skewed POV. Terrific stuff.

Author's Response: Thankyou. As I said on your LJ, I love The Balcony Series so am exceedingly chuffed that I got a response from you. Ta.

Rodney! Awesome! His voice is terrific. I love his side of the conversation, though since he knows exactly how badly off John is, it's making the story a little scary. John *will* be okay, right? Not least because I want to read more of this conversation. :-)

Author's Response: Thankyou, 'cause I really didn't think that it worked that well. Shall have to ponder the rest of the conversation.

Hot damn, I was looking forward to getting more of this! Thank you. :-D When did Rodney get injured? His memory of his poor friend was awesome--I should have realized it wasn't Atlantis, but you set it up beautifully that I didn't know it was a memory until the nurse came in asking about the unfamiliar name. The line "The only air in his lungs is mine," practically had me gasping (funnily enough). It said so much--I will always wish I'd written it myself, I have to admit. Brilliant. John's chapter was more confusing--which makes sense, of course, considering he's hovering between life and death, but even in that kind of mental limbo between consciousness and death, he seems so obviously alive that I'm just going to assume everything will end up all right. Thank you so much for continuing this, and I can't wait for the next part.

Author's Response: Thank you. Guess the addage of "write what you know" is right then.
Chapter 4: Four - The Pier
If I Die by cybersyd [PG-13]

Great adventure! If there is ever possibility of publishing SGA novels, like the SG-1 ones currently being put out in the UK (where I'm pretty sure you're from ;->), I truly hope you'll send them a novel idea--I really think you'd get published!

Author's Response: Heh, I sent one in to the last competition but it wasn't very good. Fingers crossed for next time. And hey, how did you know I was British? LOL.

Terrific character study. Perfect view of Weir. I'm glad you'll be writing more in this fandom!

Author's Response: This is ages and ages late, but thank you so much for encouraging me when I was just starting out in Atlantis fandom - I was nervous as anything and getting your note made me jump up and down.

What a wonderful story. I've read a few fics where the guys get back to Earth, and this one by far felt the most real to me. I loved John's realization that Atlantis had become home, and how obvious it was that Rodney was missing him terribly, even if John didn't quite figure that out for awhile. I loved how they realized that the other was the only one they wanted to share their experiences with... I loved everything. This was one hell of a great story. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad the premise felt realistic.
Chapter 1: none

Summary: Sheppard runs into McKay on another visit to the Ancient outpost in Antarctica. (I've been looking for pre-Atlantis McShep. There isn't much out there, so I wrote one. *g*.) This is my first attempt at writing in the Stargate Atlantis fandom; constructive comments, especially regarding characterization, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to Tammy and Karen for the beta. Written: March 30, 2005.

Terrific story. I thought your characterizations were spot-on, and very funny. I love the idea of John choosing to go to Atlantis because of Rodney. And Rodney's reaction, of course, was just priceless. Great stuff. :-)

Very cute story, but you made a couple of mistakes. The first one is that Rodney, being Canadian, wouldn't name ships with HMS, but with HMCS--Her Majesty's *Canadian* ship, which is the official title they have in Canada. Also, the name of the ship Worf captained in Star Trek: DS9 was 'The Defiant,' not 'The Defiance.' I hope that helps. :-)

Whoa. Definitely hot. Wonderfully well described--it was obvious a lot of... work... went into that. ;-> Of course, 'apologies' aside, I'm not sure I like the idea of Chaya basically molesting McKay without his knowledge or consent, though, but that really does seem to fit her character... Very cool, in a wickedly hot kind of way. Well done.

Author's Response: Work? Well, only in that I *wrote* it at work. And since McKay didn't seem to be too upset, I wasn't going to worry about it. Thanks.

Terrific 'in between' story, where we get to see our favourite characters able to have a good time without something awful on the horizon. I really enjoyed the banter, and John helping make the sails even though he didn't want to windsurf. That was lovely. :-)
