Hi. I'm a 27 years old girl from Germany. I'm a fan of Stargate since the beginning of SG-1. In the last three years, SGA became my favourite of the Stargate universe. I prefer the pairings McShep and Jack/Daniel. But team fictions too. Rodney is absolutely my favourite character from SGA. You have to love him easily.
I write stories since about 12 years. Unfortunately, until now only in German.
Rodney learns a lesson.

Wow, what a great story. I read it in one go and I enjoyed each chapter very much. There are lessons which are very hard to learn. I love Rodney-whump!
Rodneys changing behavior was very difficult for his friends and I like the way how you describe the reactions of them. I would say that nobody knew Rodney very well till the moment as he was back in Atlantis with the loss of his memories. That he was a different man before he came to the expedition. It was heart-breaking to see how the team fell apart, because Rodney is not the same person as before the incident. And Ronon was the only one who remained as long as he could.
The epilogue was fantastic. It was nice to see that everyone was okay and that their friendship or partnership will be better than before. The ending was so perfect for me as an McShep-fan.
A very well written story. Thank you for sharing.
Author's Response: Thanks for much for the great feedback. This was in interesting story in misunderstandings that happen in friendships, of when one has crossed lines that cause pain and resentment, to feeling left out when that\'s the farthest from the truth. Certainly none of them wanted to let go (and Ronon never did give up, he was just waiting for people to pull their heads out of their butts) but assumptions had been made on all sides and it was difficult to see beyond the pain it inflicted. I also didn\'t want an quick \'everything\'s okay\' either and felt a trip to Heightmeyer was in order (given that more than one of them are emotionally stunted).
John and Rodney find a way to say what they mean without saying a word. Fluffy Valentine's McShep.

Wow. What a great story. It's very romantic and both of them have the same thoughts. John and Rodney are so sweet together. True love needs no spoken words. *smile* The poetic words at the end are so fantastic. They fit right on the two.
All he had left was their wonderful history.

Poor Rodney. I can't believe what John has done. Rodney has so much understanding of John's actions. Rodney knows that they are a part of John's masquerade. But not a part of the real John and Rodney is the only person who knows John as well. He hoped it. Why did he betrayed him? That's really mean! I'm looking forward at the sequel and I hope there is a happy end for both of them, especially that they're together. (sorry my english is too bad ^^°)
Shows us what a rudderless John would be like and reminds us of how unstoppable a force of nature a McKay, any McKay, can be. (thanks to sgamadison for that wonderful summary)

I read both storys in one go and "The Last Word" was absolutely heart-breaking. Poor John. Now, he knows that Rodney had loved him all the time and he loved him, too. But it's too late for both of them. That made me sad. And "Past Perfect" is also a great story. I like the way how Rodney's daughter tries to help John out of his life which is full of sadness and sorrow. She is really a McKay and that's the reason why John will miss her because she leaves him to live her own way of life. That's true. And I think that he was glad about her help. That she gave him a little peace although the memories of Rodney hurt him so much. I love the scene from the wedding. You can feel how proud John is that he can lead Rodney's daughter to the altar. And I think, Rodney isn't as far away as they both think.^-^
Love is not easy, especially when you're five.

Aww, they are so sweet together. Really a great story. Rodney is so Rodney-like, although he is only five years old and John is also in-character.
My favourite sentence was: "God, you two are cute," the teacher commented in a hushed voice, hiding a large smile with her hand. That's true!
I hope you will write a sequel, because I would like to see John's reaction when he remembers who Rodney is. That would be great. I like the idea that the both of them know each other for a long time.
Rodney and John babysit Madison, and discover they're sweet on each other.

Special thanks to my beta and friend campylobacter who went far above the call of duty on this one!

I like this kind of sweet stories. Not for the chocolate and the candy in there *smile*, no , but for the cuteness between the characters, especially Madison, how she says the truth in a childish way. It's good to see that Rodney and John get together and I love their insecurities in dealing with each other. I can't believe it, Rodney as a very shy person? It's very cute, somehow.
It was fun to read this kind of halloween story. Very well written.
Author's Response: What a lovely thing to say! Thank-you so much for taking the time to comment. I have always thought that Rodney\'s social bravado and social awkwards stemmed from the same root: he is terribly shy and insecure. I love it when he is befuddled and can\'t seem to get the words out and I think John is equally befuddled by his own emotions. They are so perfect for each other. Again, thank-you for your \"sweet\" review.
Rodney likes to sleep a certain way.
Updated: 03 Dec 2010; Published: 03 Dec 2010
I love it. Rodney is really a genius. *lol* It's great to see that he finds a way to enjoy to sleep in such a small bed, because of John. John is the best pillow which Rodney can found.
Very well written.
Author's Response: Thank you! Looks like there are certain advantages to having such a small bed, after all. ;)
Played with the idea that a connection between Rodney and Elizabeth began with her birth. Inspired by Lives' song Lightning Crashes
Updated: 05 Jan 2011; Published: 14 Dec 2010
A great story. I like the idea about rebirth. I don't like Rodneys mum, but his grandmother is adorable. I can imagine how she feels, because she lets Rodney alone with his mother, who doesn't care about him. Her concerns are justified.
The part where Elizabeth meets Rodney is awesome. The moment, where she feels familiarity and she doesn't know why she has that feeling, is fantastic. More important is, that she knows at the beginning, that Rodney has to be a member of the expedition.
The last part of the story is also fantastic, because of the hint to an yet unknown John Sheppard.
Very well written story. Thank you for sharing.
Author's Response: WOW, no THANK YOU! I am honored by your review....and happy you enjoyed the story.
About to be ripped apart by the psychic attack of a Wraith Queen, Telepath Rodney McKay does something no-one has ever done before: he reaches out. Warnings: Minor violence and mild language.

Great story. Poor Rodney, because he thought that he had killed John and that he had screwed up. I have to say, I love the idea that Rodney and John are connected in a special way with each other. I hope there will be more of it, because there are not enough stories out there.
Very well written and thank you for sharing this lovely story.
Author's Response: Thanks! We\'re glad you liked it. It\'s unlikely there\'ll be a sequel to this story or more in the same universe, but we\'ve got another prompt \"unexpected consequences of planned soulbonding\" that is going to go down that same road, just a bit differently, seeing as it\'s planned! Thanks for commenting :) (Cass: I like the thought of them having a close connection as well, which is why I wrote a Big Bang with a bonded theme last year together with darkmoore called \"Against all Odds\", you might like that one, too.)
Something goes wrong and the worst happens.

I already gave you a review on 'ff.net'. I read your story again and it's still wonderful, heart-wrenching and sad. And there's some hope, that they will meet again someday.
Again, very well-written and thanks for sharing this nice little story.
Rumors often start with a nugget of truth.

Great story. That's so Rodney-like. He talks and talks and talks and then.... he gets it finally. I have to laugh about his rants, that's so typical for him. And John with his inability to talk about such important things first. They think too much. But I love them the way they are. They are fantastic. I would say: ignore gossip, but talk!
Very well-written. Thanks for sharing. I like the angst at the beginning. :)
An earthquake and a declaration.

Aww. That's a nice little story. I love Rodney's and John's inability to talk about their feelings, particularly to say those three little words. But they understand each other without many words. And that is more important than anything else.
Very well-written and thanks for sharing.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comment. :)
Shooting Rodney and Ronon reminds John of past events he thought were buried. He wonders if the one person he cares about the most can forgive him.
Updated: 21 Aug 2011; Published: 01 Aug 2011
A wonderful story. I like the way how they take care of each other after the mission gone wrong. Especially that Rodney worries about John and the "incident" at the gym and that he forgives John that he shot him but he would tease him anyways, because the others expect it from him. That's funny. But the whole situation reveals a side of Rodney which no one would expect. That he really cares for someone who means a lot to him. (I know there are some scenes on the show which show us already that he cares a lot.^-^) The others would be surprised if they know how he really is. And John is confronted with his past and what could have been if his life would have been different. After all he is there where he belongs and he knows what's important for him. So he never looks back. I would say that's the reason why Rodney and John fit well together. They know what it depends on.
Very well-written and thanks for sharing.
Author's Response: WOW!!!!!! Thanks so much. I appreciate the time you took for this review. I to agree that there is more to all the characters on the show, especially Rodney and John. Again thanks so much for reading and I\'m happy you enjoyed it.
Rodney watches John sleep after another suicide run. *contains slightly violent imagery (suicide)
Updated: 16 Aug 2011; Published: 04 Aug 2011
A wonderful story! And a little bit sad, too. The characterizations of Rodney and John are great. And it is so Rodney-like that he worries most about John and his urge to suicide missions. And that he's frightened that the next mission could be the last one where John doesn't come back. Poor Rodney. It's cruel that he witnessed such an incident at the age of five. And that he compares his experience with John's behaviour.
I love the last line: "....he gave John a serious look, "we need to talk."" I hope they will find a way to sort out that kind of problem without a verbal fight.
Very well-written and thank you for sharing.
Chapter 1: Against Your Will, You Are Alive
Instead of three ghosts to teach him a Christmas lesson, Rodney has three friends to help him pull his head out of his ass just in time to save Valentine's Day with John.
Updated: 29 Jan 2012; Published: 29 Jan 2012
I love it. I like how Radek, Ronon and Teyla talk about Valentine's Day with Rodney and how he's ranting about the commercial aspects of this day. It's so typical for him, but he isn't aware that he hurts John with his comments. But I'm glad that he found the Valentine's Day spirit in the end. And that they're happy together.
Very well-written. Thanks for sharing.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I had excellent material to work with thanks to Gnine, but I\'m glad the story translated well! =D Thanks so much!
Rodney's been a long time connoisseur of John Sheppard's butt.
Updated: 07 Apr 2012; Published: 07 Apr 2012
I never read a story like this before. I really love it. Rodneys obsession and Johns reaction. I had to smile all the way through your story, somehow that's so typical for both of them.
Very well-written and thanks for sharing.
Author's Response: Thank you so much!! I\'m so glad you liked it. I love obsessed!Rodney, so this was a fun one to write.
