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 ;).
Not all relationships start with a bang. Some take time and a lot of patience (and the occasional intervening friend)

Great chapter. Very hot. I also liked the little things, little details, that show their love more than the hot sex; like Carson playing with John's hair. I liked their talk about Radek and Rodney too. I hope they can get them talking again, if nothing else as it was sad to see Radek so upset and miserable. Laura.
Chapter 10: HB VIIIb: Heart to Heart
I loved this. I dearly love John/Carson, but I'm a sucker for this threesome :). And you did it so well too, things progressing naturally, but with the uncertainty there too. I liked John's thoughts on how to broach the subject without sounding like bad porn *g*. I also liked Radek's confusion over what this meant and his happiness as it finally sank in that John and Carson wanted him and it wasn't just pity. Rodney doesn't know what he's missing ;). Laura.
Chapter 11: HB VIIIc: More Than Just a Sympathetic Ear
It looks like Lucius did a lot of damage :(. I'm glad John figued it out and was there for Carson, even if they did get their wires crossed a little with the second-guessing. Carson has a lot to work through and I hope he'll start letting John help him again on their trip. Laura.

One of lifes tough decisions, what flavour to make the lube *vbg*. I loved the Rodney-fetish bit too :). And the neding, just turning that little bit serious and angsty, was icing on the cake. Oh and, John equations being elegant made me smile :). Laura.
Author's Response: Thank you once again for the kind feedback. And, yeah, John would definitely lead to elegant equations. He's just got all of those long, elegant lines. /stops typing and ponders John naked/

Okay, firstly, Captain Subtext decoder ring? ROFL!!! Secondly, loved this whole thing; the teasing, the nipple fetish (is that a sub division of the Rodney fetish?), the accusations of metrosexuality and being a pervert, and the upside down blowjob idea :). Laura.
Author's Response: You know, I think the nipple fetish is a subdivision of the Rodney fetish. /g/ I have to credit carolyn claire for the observations about John's metrosexuality. I just borrowed them. But the upside down blowjob was mine. /eg/ Thanks, as always, for the lovely feedback.
John, Rodney, angstporn.

No no no, no stopping! Oh, you gotta love angst!porn :). I loved Rodney's...well, awe I guess...at being able to *see* John. Laura.
Author's Response: Sorry 'bout the stopping. I have an angst porn obsession, I think. Or maybe it's just a porn obsession. /g/ I'm thrilled you liked it. Thank you.

Wow. I loved this. I loved John's enjoyment of doing all the little normal morning-type things for the first time. And the shower sex was hot, even if poor Rodney hadn't even had coffee yet :). And that last paragraph, where it hit John about the quiet moments linking everything else together, was just brilliant :). Laura.
Summary: The things McKay was willing to do for really good coffee cake...

I just had to say that I loved John's "I could have sworn I saw someone that looked just like you in the briefing" comment ROFL :). Laura.
Author's Response: Cool! Shep doesn't strike me as the kind of CO that would jump down your throat for every little thing. don't you think?
Chapter 1: Show Tunes for Pegasus
How many small fees does it take to make a big fee? This certainly sounds like they're well on the way to huge fee :). Laura.
Author's Response: well, y'know, business is business....
Chapter 2: 2. The House of Welcome
This is great so far. You've really gone into detail about the customs and appearances, and it's made it very easy for me to 'see' this in my mind. And I love that John and Rodney can do this without any awkwardness or jealousy between them. Oh, and I mustn't forget to mention the sample sex! ROFL...plus, hot :). Laura.
Author's Response: thanks for the nice comments! I'm glad you're enjoying it!
Chapter 7: 7. Never Forget an Eyebrow
Yay, more excellent chapters :). I loved how the guys taught Jana and Seerga how to kiss, and how John conditioned all three of them so quickly with the hand-porn *g*. It was nice that they actually treated the women like people unlike most of the other traders >(. I loved Bates and Yamato's reactions when they came to collect Rodney and John. And poor Rodney- "Rodney of Arabia" indeed, heee. Looking forward to the next chapter. Laura.
Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying how it's going! thanks for the nice comments, you're making my day! more soon...wags, springwoof
Chapter 13: 13. Rodney of Arabia and the Porno Flick
More great chapters, Springwoof. I was pleased that Jana was their guide. I could feel the awkwardness of meeting her fiance. I'm glad John and Rodney were able to convince Jana that sex wasn't just about procreation..it led to some nice hot sex after all :). Saffin's stories were interesting, and the House of Shame prison information was intriguing. As was the transport and the way it moved...right up Rodney's street for investigating *g*. I was glad to see John reflecting on the circumstances a little, thinking about the four children he's fathered and will never see, and how he and McKay essentially whored themselves for Atlantis. It's all turned out well so far, but it was nice to have that addressed. I absolutely loved chapter 18- almost a whole chapter just for sex, and really hot sex too. And i just loved cuddly John afterwards, and the fact that Rodney indulged him, knowing that John has been getting weighed down by the pressures of command. Hot and sweet :). I look forward to the next batch of chapters. Laura.
Author's Response: Thanks for giving very nice feedback throughout! I really appreciate knowing what worked for you in the story....
wags madly (knocks over a lamp, oops!) & gives slobbery doggie kisses...
Chapter 18: 18. Always Worth It
I love the descriptions of their dress and make up. You go into such great detail that I can really *see* them...and it's a very nice image :). Laura.
Author's Response: ::waggles eyebrows:: wags, springwoof
Chapter 19: 19. The Barbarian and the Harem Boy
*Eep* evil cliffhanger!!! I should have suspected that it was all going too well, but you lulled me into a fals sense of security :). I can't wait to see what happens next, and hope that John, Rodney, Jana and Suffin are ok. Laura.
Author's Response: Thanks for the nice comments, Laura. The pace will go a little faster from now on, so I'll try to post more briskly. wags, springwoof
Chapter 20: 20. The Green City
*blinks* Oh my, the hits just kept on coming in this one! Poor Suffin, and Seerga and the other women :(. And Rodney...I don't know whether to admire his bravery or shake him hard for being so idiotic...I imagine John will feel something similar. I hope Jana's not too badly hurt, or Rodney for that matter. I'm off to find out now...Laura.
Author's Response: I don't imagine Rodney felt he was being brave so much as idiotic, either....he was just feeling desperate to do *something* for his friends. And the knowledge that some of the babies being carried are (were) *his* may have been affecting him on some level as well...
Chapter 21: 21. Laughing Death
Oh no, Jana! ::is sad::. I hope arson can save her, even if she has lost the baby. Surely you can't be so evil as to wipe out all of John and Rodney's women? ::eyes you uncertainly:: I loved Rodney's idea of writing E=MC2 on the dart, and that John could fly it. I hope they find some useful information from it, they deserve to catch a break in defending themselves from the Wraith. And what's up with the new ZPM? It's all going on now. I hope Rodney goes to the infirmary soon, just as soon as he's determined that the ZPM isn't immediately dangerous, he needs some medical attention. I'm sure John will insist once he gets back from the omega site. I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter. Laura.
Author's Response: thanks for the lovely comments. I'm glad you're finding it exciting. more soon!
Chapter 22: 22. Another Fine Day in Pegasus
Poor John, it was distressing to see events finally catching up to him, especially when he was debriefing with Elizabeth. I had to smile at his antics while the nurse tried to stitch his wound. I know it was done out of worry for Rodney, but it was nice to catch a glimpse of normalcy in John's recalcitrant patient routine :). I'm pleased Jana's on the mend, though sad she lost the baby. But *eep* Rodney :(. He *has* to be okay! Laura.
Author's Response: you wouldn't see a scene like this on the show, would you? so it's a bit OOC. But then, the show has them just brushing off serious injuries and lifechanging trauma with no consequences...'cause it's a *tv show* and it has to reset to "normal" the next week...actual people would be more traumatized, i think, by some of the stuff the SGA folks had gone through...
Chapter 23: 23. Some Damn Fool Thing
I loved the grinning and teasing between John, Radek and then Rodney when he woke up. It really is great when Rodney's complaining :). It was good to learn that Jana was getting better and that several of her *unofficial* family remained, especially when it was discovered that Oolosh was gone :(. The goodbye scene was both sad and happy. Happy that they were all returning home to help rebuild but sad that Jana chose to go. I loved that Jana blew them a kiss just before stepping through. Laura.
Author's Response: thanks for reading the story all the way to the end, Laura! I'm glad you liked it! wags, springwoof
Chapter 24: 24. The Price of Survival
Mak and Shep, I like it *g*. And so obviously their fathers' sons' too ;). A great ending to a great story. You really got the characters spot on and the OCs were well written, which helped me warm to them quickly (sometimes difficult where OCs are concerned). The plot was a great mix of humour, drama, action and angst; and the details were very good, really letting me build a picture and *see* the story. I'll be keeping my eye out for future stories from you :). Laura.
Author's Response: Yay! so very glad the ending worked for you! Thanks for your many kind comments, they let me know what was working. I'm very pleased you enjoyed the story! wags, springwoof
Chapter 25: 25. Epilogue -- Several Years Later
In which someone has a crush on Rodney...
Updated: 29 Oct 2005; Published: 10 Aug 2005
Bad Hermiod! Killing his beloved isn't the right way to go about wooing him! I hope he's more careful with whatever else his book tells him...not that he's ever going to succeed in stealing Rodney from John. It's entertaining watching him try though :). Laura.
Author's Response: *grin* Poor Hermiod. So close, and yet...
