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 ;).

I love John's jumbled thoughts here, chasing about in a mind past exhaustion. And I love Rodney too, knowing just what to do and say. The ending was sweet- both able to finally sleep now they were together. ::sappy grin:: Laura.

I missed this until 'Body Holographic' brought it to my attention. Very creepy and maddeningly leaving so many questions unanswered. But I can see how it would happen, how the lack of contact from Earth would lead to Atlantis making yet more allies, as they already have ben in canon. It's not such a stretch to imagine they'd finally find others sufficiently technological to help defeat the Wraith. Still, Weir's general scariness, especially when Rodney, Johnny and Sora were all requesting leniency, as well as Rodney's own harshness with Sora, was quite creepy. Looking forward to some answers (I hope) in 'Body...'. Laura.

Author's Response: thanks for the comments, Laura. If you wanted answers in TBH, you can thank Leah for them! She was brilliant, and wanted a sequel/prequel so bad that she just magically drew me in with her writing mojo.... :-) wags, springwoof

This was good, if a little sad. I only saw The Siege parts 1 & 2 the other day, so Everett is fresh in my mind. I have to say that I didn't like him to start with, but he did set his pride aside to let the more knowledgable people give him help, so he grew on me a little. And no one deserves to be drained by the Wraith. This was nice to see Elizabeth putting past differences aside. Laura.

Author's Response: She's compassionate. You're right, I can't see her doing anything else.

This packs a lot into it- we've got potted backstory for both John and Rodney, as well as for their current situation. Plus you broke Rodney :(, and poor John, what a reason for his dad to hate him :(. Laura.

Author's Response: LOL!! And I've been asked to tell the rest of that back story now! Just got to finish another story first :-)

This is great so far. Both strands of the story are interesting- just what is making people crazy? And was that anything useful on the seabed? The sub was cool :). Reese and Shelby's attacks were tense and worrying, but Rodney's was even more so. I hope he's come up with the solution and it can be fixed before any more crazy people happen. Elizabeth's obviously not herself, I hope she's not next in line. Laura.

Author's Response: Glad you're enjoying it! Yes, Elizabeth is definitely not herself. But I won't spoil it for you. ;-)

Oh, that's an ingenious reason for the crazy people, I'm impressed! And now they know what's going on, they can start to move the most at risk off Atlantis. I wonder if Elizabeth will fall under that category? I look forward to the next chapter. Laura.

A nice little bit of character interaction here. I loved Elizabeth's thoughts on how terrible she must look to have John being contrite. And their conversation with Rodney was great too- Elizabeth being all serious and trust placing, then John jumping in with the sarcasm *g*. Laura.

Wow, that was a tense chapter! Poor John, it was all going so well, and suddenly disaster :(. Stupid Moran (I know it's technically not his fault, but still!) I hope John isn't too badly off, that seizure didn't reassure me at all ::is concerned::. Laura.

Summary: Their last night on Earth, Ford and Sheppard get to know each other a little better. "With all of us cast adrift in this maelstrom of change, the only anchor I could find to offer him was myself. His eyes said 'oasis' when he looked at me, but his body language said 'mirage'."

Oh my! This is just, well...wow! I loved the descriptions of John through Aiden's eyes, right from the start when he saw the out of place, overwhelmed Air Force major to the beautiful, sensual man he saw a the end :). And I loved how John overcame Aiden's nervousness, never pressuring him and showing him how good it could feel. Of course, it was incredibly hot too and I loved the depth of emotion Aiden felt, and saw in John's eyes. Hot and sweet :). I also loved the way it all tied in to that one little moment on the ramp and gave Aiden's "Hurts like hell, Sir" a whole other meaning. Very very nice. And even more impressive when you consider that John/Aiden isn't my favourite pairing! :) Laura.

Author's Response: Thank You! I always thought that scene between them on the Gate ramp screamed subtext and that Aiden was quiet because he was thinking so much, not because he wasn't thinking. And John's such a nice thing for him to be thinking about. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for taking the time to leave a review. ~Kyn_Moonlight

It's good to see Rodney's ability to talk incessantly being put to good use :). And heaven forefend he pass up the opportunity to have a dig at Ford's lack of classical music knowledge whilst he's at it *g*. I could just imagine Elizabeth's bemused expression when Ford told her it was a Barry Manilow kind of day :). Laura.

Dammit! I like to watch too! Just as it was getting to the really good part as well :(. This was great. I was completely surprised by the ending suddenly changing pov like that. It was funny. The Beckshep show was nice too *mmmm*. Laura.

Oh...I don't really know what to say about that...it was good, and dark and creepy. Sad too :(. Sorry I'm not more coherent. Laura.

Author's Response: I wasn't sure it was coherent for a while. It took a couple of days on lj before I decided to post it here, too. The concensus is that it is quite creepy. Not much more to say about it. :g:

This was very good. I liked the way you mixed the aftermath of episode events and your own original perils. I also thought you captured John's growing despair at the burden he carried, and the way he kept returning to the balcony and the sunset, but how that became less restoring as time wore on. This was quite poignant. Laura.

Author's Response: :-) Thanks for a such detailed review, it always makes my muse happy to see them. I'm glad you liked the fic. *G*
