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.

Charming, fascinating and very sweetly funny. I loved the dense yet jubiliant descriptions, and the dead-on POV.

Very, very nice. I love the thesis of this--about Rodney's having lost art in the search for control. That fits with him perfectly. I loved the implication of the ending, that he had finially realized how to surrender enough control to have art.

Great story, Miera. I loved the idea of Weir getting as much as she was giving, and the the hell with neutrality. I really enjoyed that.

Terrifically sweet story. I loved Sheppard's musings, and Zelenka's dialogue--'People formerly belonging to McKay.' Hee! I hope there will be more of this. Will the boys be going from friendship to a relationship?

Author's Response: Oh, god, I hope so, but I can't get them past the cake just yet. Thank you for the review.

I just want to say this is one of the coolest stories I have ever read. Ever. Your AU is fabulous, I adore your alien, the AU John is almost--but not quite--the guy we know (and damn if I didn't just want to hug him, poor, sweet, underconfident boy! I'm guessing he doesn't have the same level of responsibility in his universe as 'our' John does in the regular one), and the scenario is perfectly SG plausible. Did I mention I love your alien? Her handing a towelette to John had me LOL. What a fabulous creature. I dearly hope you're going to continue this. I really want everyone to be restore to their proper universes, not to mention 'our' Rodney do something about his brand-new self-discovery... Thank you so much for this. It was wonderful.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Yes, I wanted AUJohn to be recognizably John but recognizably *not* CannonJohn. And so, yes, in AUJohn's universe, he's more susceptible to what people in authority think of him, and his universe, Sumner survived. Glad that came through. Yes, a sequel is in progress. It should be finished soon. (hopes) wags, springwoof

That was sweet as mocha (with just that hint of bitter, which is so Rodney), and absolutley hilarious. Your description of a more-or-less adverage day had me grinning all the way through this. And the ending was just mmmm. And the Angelia Jolie reference, and the transporter with the cat aura? Just brilliant. Your friend is most lucky indeed.

Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it! She appreciated it, definitely. (*Everyone* liked the Angelina Jolie thing. *is proud of self*) Thanks for reviewing!

Fascinating, scarily plausible and very painful story. I hate that I can see it happening, and the fact that it was only logical that John wouldn't have survived either didn't make it any easier to take. It is a terrible but excellent story.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. Really, wow.

Very cool story! I have to admit that, though it is neatly plausible, such a scenario never occurred to me. I thought you wrote the situation very well, even making the poor lunatic sympathetic. And the thing with the can opener was great. Very enjoyable story.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm surprised they don't have more people losing it in Atlantis.

That was terrific, though terribly painful, because the ending is so uncertain. Weir's thoughts about the two men were wonderful, as was he own response to the situation they were in, and what was going on. It was wonderfully hopeful how they were able to find strength in each other.

Author's Response: Thank you :) I do so love that angst, as you know, and I can be quite evil. But then you know that too ::g::

Fantastic. I freaking *love* your Heightmeyer! She rocks! And the leitmotif of the letters and games was fascinating, and very nicely underscored the dialogue counselling sessions. And you would make an excellent Canadian. Just sayin'. ;-> You know us so well... I've played games like the 'I love my love' one you wrote, but not precisely that kind. I really enjoyed reading that, and how the group explained the words to each other. I loved Weir's tap dance, too. Fabulous. The story wasn't 'funny' so much as 'mordantly humourous,' but that is so you, and brilliantly so.

God, that was so sweet. I can see this side of John perfectly, too--what I call his 'gleefully bitter' period before he gets his sense of purpose back by being sent to Atlantis. To me his behaviour here with Bowman (and damn, but I loved how you described that guy. I'd really enjoy reading more about him, actually) was as much about fucking the system (excuse the pun) as exchanging blowjobs with a hot guy. I think John's pretty much just going through the motions, until Rodney wakes him up and makes him realize that, yeah, he really is worth something. Priceless, even. It was so obvious to me that for Rodney it wasn't just about the sex at all, despite what John may have thought initially. And it was so excellent at the end when John realized that, and allowed himself to go with it. You write very profound PWPs. ;->

Author's Response: Sweetie! You're so wonderful. Thank you, thank you for the lovely feedback. "Gleefully bitter" is a fabulous description, yup, I can so see that in John during "The Rising". He definitely has issues. I'm so glad this fic worked for you, it was a wierd one to write, and thank you for letting me know I got the message across. ::hugs you::

Very original, funny and intriguing. I really like 'Bernie,' and his outlook and how he deals with things. And I could just imagine Rodney dropping off some plant and forgetting to tell him what it is. Poor Rodney, he'll have no idea why he's been marked... :-) That was a lot of fun, thank you.

Hey, BW fic! Cool! :-) I really enjoyed the tenderness here, and the idea that John might crack at some point over the wrongs he thinks he's done. How wonderful for him to be protected himself now, just like he's always protecting everyone else. And by Rodney--awesome. ;-> Though I also got the impression that Elizabeth and Carson were going to help look after him, too. I loved the idea of Elizabeth's harshness actually being because of her anger at almost losing John and her inability to cope with it. Very plausible. And the ending made me very happy. :-D
