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 terrific, Moon. Evocative and frightening and wonderfully disturbing. I also wish there was more, but the ending was just about perfect. I only hope Rodney didn't actually lose a finger...

Author's Response: I'm sure Carson has a magic ancient machine to fix it if he did ;) I don't think there will be more. I've being trying to write a tag, but it doesn't want to work. Glad you enjoyed it!

Whoo! A sequel! And slash! And Rodney's getting a new finger! That was quite moving, actually. I thought their interaction, and how they both admitted and accepted that they would do *anything* for the other was perfect. Excellent story.

Author's Response: Hee, thanks :-D I'm very pleased to have moved you *smug face* Glad you enjoyed and here's to saying no to sequels! *considers taking this tack with Ramus*

Hot damn. I was so pissed at how everyone was laughing at McKay for beign the only one to take the radiation threat seriously! I really appreciate you writing this. :-)

Author's Response: Thank you! I felt the same way! I burn easily so I could understand his concerns. I would have liked to see an official tag for this episode showing the military how stupid they had been.

That was marvelous. Very funny, and oddly touching. I have to admit I couldn't really see the slash, but I enjoyed the story far too much to be bothered by it. Great stuff.

Author's Response: Nah, you're right, it's probably pre-slash and have duely adjusted. Ta.

I loved 'At Ease,' so I was very happy to see a sequel--though this one seems a great deal sadder, alas. :-) Just one thing: Carson killed half of Hoff (not the Genii) with the anti-Wraith serum, though to be honest the Hoff didn't listen to his warnings of caution... Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you! :) Yes, I'm feeling a little more angsty, less fluffy this time around. re: Genii vs. Hoff - whoops! I'll fix it. Maybe I got confused because I wanted to kill those stupid Hoff leaders almost as much as I hated Kolya. (I have a fic-bunny hopping in the back of my mind about Kolya and McKay wanting to kill him.)

You're right--why didn't they think of that? It would have been excellent! So, thank you for fixing that appalling deficit for us. I feel kind of badly for Sheppard (who will have to take orders from a *kid*, after all), but I am really looking forward to finding out what happens next. Great job on your first time out! :-)

Author's Response: Thanks! Poor Sheppard? Poor Sumner!

Definitely a hot fic. :-) But I was wondering if you knew that it keeps switching between present and past tense? You might want to go over it and make the verb tenses consistent.

Author's Response: I know, the stupid tenses are all over the place. It was orignally written as an IM fic. I just can't fix all the tenses, I keep missing them [I think its connected to my deslixa]. It is a lot better than before though. Thanks :D
Chapter 1: Lazy Morning

Summary: John spliced and edited his collection of touch every night, adding the new bits and rearranging until it played out like just like HDTV, Rodney with his hands and shoulders and unnerving blue eyes, touches and kisses and skin on skin until John didn't know if his imagination was a curse or a blessing. Set between The Lost Boys and The Hive

Very, very nice. Loved the imagery, and John turning it all over in his mind, and how you had him sculpt lies to himself so he could keep up pretenses. The ending was just riveting.

Author's Response: thanks so much...I could just imagine John working so hard to delude himself. glad you enjoyed it.

Oh, that was great. And an equally perfect example of the "good gen is really pre-slash" rule. I'm sure John will figure out what it is with him and Rodey pretty quick. ;->
