Let's see, what can I tell you about myself. I'm 33 and live in Pittsburgh. I'm a primary care doc by training, a psychiatrist by inclination, and I do research in both. Dr. Dredd was a nickname given to me during medical school. I'm not sure if it was meant to be complimentary, but I use it with pride anyway!

If it's not already obvious,I've liked the doctor characters on the sci-fi shows, from Leonard McCoy in the first Star Trek to Julian Bashir in DS9 to Janet Frasier in SG-1. And last but definitely not least, Carson Beckett. I try to write stories where I can get into the characters' heads. This often leads to both physical and psychological whumping. All in a good cause.

I love dogs. All shapes and all sizes, and I'm especially a sucker for puppies. I grew up with two bichon frises, and am dying to get another one now that I have my own place. Unfortunately, the landlord of the building where I live doesn't allow dogs. So I'm now looking to move! Stay tuned.

I'm not sure I want to know about your childhood -- some of those pranks were ingenious! ;-) But who put the box in Liz's quarters?

Eww! Kavanaugh and Miko? That's just disturbing! ;-) This was really funny, though. Loved the line about writing their initials all over Rodney's notebook.

Author's Response: Thanks; I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it! Kavanagh and Miko are kinda disturbing together, aren't they? Blame the moonshine.

I've often wondered why we don't see more mention of spirituality in the show. Yeah, yeah, I know they don't want to offend anyone, but they could at least show people in contemplation. I know the Wraith would make me want to think about what's really important!

Author's Response: Yup. My thought exactly - we've seen the Athosian rituals, but never the humans from Earth. Huh...

"The only dick around here is you." That had me laughing out loud! A 20-foot vibrator, indeed. :-)

Author's Response: I couldn't resist that line. I think that's something Rodney's always wanted to say out loud... ;)

Cute! I've often wished I knew more languages.

Author's Response: :) Thanks. First SGA drabble, etc etc. I got bored in my translation class. Also, I've been keeping up with your "Memoranda from the Edge". Hilarious.
Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: "For the third time, Rodney, I told you don't want me to answer that question." "If you've had to tell me three times then I beg to differ - I clearly do want to know."

With that goofy of a grin, there was only one thing it could have been! Loved Carson's and Rodney's suggestions as to what the other one could go do to themselves.

I can imagine Rodney as a totally manic and hyperactive bunny. Hopefully Zelenka can fix it -- for everyone's sake! :-)

Author's Response: I suspect Rodney will be hopping around Atlantis chewing through wires and things and being generally annoying. Plus I think he'll end up take up as much room on Shep's bed as possible *g*

Loved the interactions with Beckett! Especially Lorne vowing never to need surgery. It was also nice that you mentioned Bates. I miss him.

Author's Response: I miss Bates too! He deserves a mention. Thank you so much for reading.

Very cool. Loved some of the humorous comments by the Marines (Stackhouse and Markham come to mind), and love the way that Shep blindsided them all at the end. :-)

Heh. I've seen a story where John is turned into a German Sheppard, so Rodney as telepathic cat is very appropriate. Loved how Elizabeth needed progressively stronger stuff to ease her pain. :-)

Interesting way to explain Carson's comment to Rodney in The Hive. I also like the way you explicitly don't give the identity of the person who's going to confront the doc. Leaves it to the imagination.

Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to read :)

The owner/staff line was the best one in the story! Great job.

Author's Response: Thanks. As I mentioned I can take no credit for that line, but I couldn't see anyone but Rodney saying it. Glad you enjoyed it.

I don't necessarily think religious people would be offended. Although I'm not a Christian, it seems like a respectful treatment of Christian beliefs. And you're right -- who among us doesn't wish they had someone waiting on the other side?

Author's Response: Thank you. Beatrice Otter (who edited this story) is Christian. And she warned me that a lot of rather vulgar flame-wars started from innocent stories like this one. I am baptized as Orthodox Christian, and personally I do not think that representing God as very responsible being of unconditional kindness is insulting for any Christian. But you never know - there are all sorts of people out there.
Chapter 1: 1

Summary: (Not a death story, although it plays one on TV.) One of the social anthropologists had once said that Atlantis and her people were like a single entity, with Elizabeth as its heart, Rodney as its brain, and John Sheppard as its soul. Without John, Atlantis felt stripped and empty.

At first I didn't believe you when you said this wasn't a deathfic! But you were true to your word. Very nicely done.

Author's Response: Have I ever lied to you before? ;-) Thanks for your kind review. I have enjoyed some of your stuff, as well. ~ S.
Chapter 1: Complete

Summary: Somehow I'm having immensely satisfying but completely out of the blue orgasms for no apparent reason. Part of me hates it and the other part is dancing with glee, didn't seem quite like the thing to say to your boss in the middle of the meeting.

Rodney, if my balls get any bluer they're going to start voting Democrat Now you've done it! I'll never be able to listen to any politician again with a straight face! (Of course, it was pretty damn hard to begin with...)
