Okay, I'm female, 32 and live in Leicester, UK. Big fan of sci-fi in general and obviously Atlantis :). I'm also a huge slash fan. I'll read anyone with Sheppard...does that make me a Shepslut? I particularly like John/Carson and John/Rodney, and better yet John/Carson/Rodney mmmmm. Edited to add Radek...John/Radek or John/Radek in a threesome (or even foursome) with Carson or Rodney *vbg*.

Oh, and Lorne, as well ;).

*Dies* Oh, this was funny. At first, I was all "Not the hair"...or should that be "Not The Hair"? ;)...but it was just too funny to mourn for long. I loved Rodney's reaction, I could just picture him lusting after the hair. I thought Teyla, Weir and Carson managed admirably in keeping themselves from laughing, but Aiden...not so much :D. John's reactions to Rodney were great; all indignant that it was only his blondness that was attracting Rodney. I particularly loved the line about him not prostituting his hair for chocolate *vbg*. I'm glad to see that Rodney finally managed to make the right gesture to convince John hat it wasn't the hair...or at least, not *only* the hair :D. Laura.

Author's Response: Hee! Thank you so much :) We're glad you enjoyed it!

Wow, there's a lot happening here...and it's all great. I wonder how they got into this situation in the first place? The scenes between Teyla and Rodney were hot but I also liked the underlying sadness and worry that prompted them to start this. And the added dimension of despair once they realised John was watching, and the concern they both had for him that let them carry on was nicely written. I'm worried about John too. I loved Rodney's observations of scary military Sheppard, and how close to the edge he seemed. I hope they can sort this out, especially now Rodney knows that John's saved him from having to kill or be killed. I can see it getting worse before it gets better. Laura.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the feedback! It was a first contact mission gone horribly wrong. The culture stays under the Wraith "radar" by keeping their population strictly limited. And the way they do that is that, when a child is born, the oldest person in the tribe dies. When visitors come, however, they have to fight a champion to the death to determine who will be allowed to stay with the tribe - and there's a big party held around the event. The two people are sent into the forest at sunset, and aren't allowed out until one of them is dead. (If they both come out, they both die.) Er, does that answer your question at all? Thank you again for commenting!

This was great. I loved the way you surprised me with the fact that they weren't on Atlantis. And John's thoughts of what 'home' meant to him were lovely. Laura.

Author's Response: Although I've got to admit, I think John just thinks of home as 'Rodney' *g*

Yep, I'm with Elizabeth- it's definitely odd that Rodney bought her coffee and John asked how she was. And this food deal seems a little too good to be true as well! I can't wait to find out more. Laura.

Wow, things are definitely not right. John's behaviour especially (though that could just be because we've seen more of him than the other men). So what does tinael mean? And how can coming back to Tabaasa possibly mean their lives? I'm well and truly intrigued. Laura.
Chapter 2: Disturbing Behaviour
Reviewer: Laura_trekkie (Signed)
07 Jul 2005
So we still don't know what tinael means? I have a feeling all will become clear once that gets translated. It's good to see the women have noticed the odd behaviour in the men and are quietly doing things about it. I hope it doesn't get too bad. I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter. Laura.

I could really feel the tension between Sheppard and Bates, and Carson's discomfort with it. I loved Rodney trying to find defences for why he was being nice. I'm interested to see why whatever it is doesn't affect everyone in the same way. Laura.

I'm glad to see that the problem has been identified now at least. Teyla's self deffence class was good too, especially the undercurrents when Ford and then Sheppard turned up. I can't help worrying about them going back to the planet though. Laura.

Gah! Evil cliffhanger!!! I loved Elizabeth's idea to send the military out hunting :). And the fight on Tabaasa was exciting and tense. I can't wait to see what Rodney's come up with. Laura.

Things are starting to get tense now with the women all corraled in one place. Lets up the guys can keep themselves under control. Laura.
Chapter 7: A Long Night

This was an exciting and tense chapter. That some of the men had managed to reach the women was a little scary, but it was good to see that some of them are safe to help protect the women, and the women are no slouches either. The Teyla thing was very tense, especially as we saw John's struggle to keep himself under control from his own pov. I was relieved when Teyla finally caught on to what her presence was causing. John's thought about how all the eyes met his then looked away, submiting to his dominance really highlighted the 'wildness', like a wolf pack. Laura.

I can see Teyla's point about hating to sit idle, but I wish she'd stayed put. Ford was safe enough, but Bates, not so much. And what will John's actions mean for their friendship and trust? Laura.
Chapter 9: Defending
Reviewer: Laura_trekkie (Signed)
13 Jul 2005
A party was a great way to finish this fic. It let them all put the tension behind them and relax properly at last. I liked Elizabeth's thoughts on John, and how she couldn't really hold a grudge if Teyla wasn't. And I thought she dealt with Rodney in her usual adept way. His comment about enjoying his niceness while it lasted amused me :). Laura.

Oh this was excellent. I love seeing dark!John make an appearance every now and again, especially when it's because Rodney is in trouble. I also loved that he could switch it off when he was tending to Rodney. He was so caring and you could really see the depth of friendship there. And it was really obvious that the feelings go both ways when Rodney said he hadn't stopped John for Lanni's sake...just *dies*. I really enjoyed the fact that this was all from Lanni's pov too. It was interesting to see her changing opinions of John, and her little guilt/gratitude session where she told Rodney about the neurogens. It was great to see their friendship from the outside too. I loved that she was so convinced that John was quite mad, and I also loved that she called John 'your Major' when asking for Rodney's help...it makes the slasher in me happy ;). I see several reviewers have enquired about a sequel and I'd just like to add my voice to the 'yes please' list :). It would be great to see what happens once they get back to Atlantis and have to deal with the fallout. Laura.

I'm amused, but also concerned, that John's bored so quickly ;). Poor Spot, that was sad. I liked Rodney's concern and also the idea that John would need to be as high as possible. Laura.

Excellent. I often wonder about John's past, and this was a very plausible version. It was interesting to learn about his brothers, and I also liked the fact that Jeremy finally decided to try and trck John down...too late. The dream at the end was an interesting twist too. Laura.
