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.

It's good to see that at least Carson's being empathic, even if John wasn't quite so understanding. Hopefully the good doc (and you!) will fix Rodney up.
Chapter 1: 1

Summary: John was purple. "Dare I ask?" Carson wondered out loud. "No," Rodney told him definitively. "No you don't."

Heh. This was just as good as "Stoned by the Villagers", although I would have loved to have seen the John/Elizabeth conversation. :-)

Author's Response: Oh, thanks! I have to say, I'm unreasonably pleased with SBtV, so that's a high compliment indeed. And as for the J/E scene... John just would have been all put out. "All I did was take a leak!" And then he would have pouted for all he was worth and poked at his hives for sympathy. :)

Summary: It's summer, 1982, and for once John's not the awkward new kid on the block. No, that honor goes to the two kids running the lemonade stand this time. Written for the sga_flashfic communitie's "Earthside" challenge.

I like that. Typical Rodney, to be very protective of his sister, yet whine while doing it! :-)

Author's Response: Yes! Exactly what I was thinking. You know they had a whole argument back at the apartment about the 'lemonade' thing. Thanks!

Awesome! I like Carson and Laura, but Carson and chef-McKay is even better. :-)

Author's Response: Thank you! I thought McKay's love of food combined with his perfectionist tendencies might easily lead to a career as a celebrity chef... I'm glad you enjoyed the story and thank you for leaving feedback.

Woohoo! Drunken Scots! Citrus-coated screwdrivers! And what the hell was in Kate's yearbook? :-)

Author's Response: Hee, thank you! And Kate\'s yearbook had a) some spectacularly bad hair, and b) a couple of really awful pictures from drama club productions. REALLY awful.

Summary: (AU) When they were first warned of the Wraith that dwelled in the forest, the travelers laughed. After all, they were not superstitious fools. Besides, everyone knew that even if those demons did exist -- which they didn't, of course -- the Wraith had died out at least a thousand years ago.

Cool. If Rodney were ever to be turned into a Wraith, this is how I'd imagine him to be. He's still sarcastic and snarky, no matter what form he wears. Poor Carson, though. I would have thought he would try to stay alive, to try to find a way to reverse the transformation.

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. *pats Rodney* And I think a lot more went on with Carson when the Wraith took the city, for him to kill himself. Though now you've got a plotbunny in my head where Carson doesn't kill himself and he and Rodney run around killing the Wraith together.

Go Hermiod! I love the snarky little gray guy. He's almost more fun than Thor. It's good to see that he's looking out for Lindsey.

Author's Response: I love all Asgard, especially Thor. But Hermiod is a close second. His friendship with Lindsey is squeeable..:)

I would have liked to see a conversation like this between Rodney and Laura. After being stuck in someone's head for a few days, expecting to die, one can't just walk away and never deal with it again! Nice tag.

OMG, he killed Grodin! :-) I like this AU, though. It fits with what we've seen of John. And everyone else also seems to fit their role, especially Carson as bartender.

Author's Response: Yeah, Carson is just the type I figured to be the man behind the bar.;) I am glad you like it!

Schism by havocthecat [PG-13]
[Reviews - 2]

Summary: The Psi Corps has gotten several of its members selected for the Atlantis expedition. Some of them, like expedition leader Elizabeth Weir, are loyal to the Corps despite a regrettably strong sense of personal ethics. John Sheppard is a hairsbreadth from going rogue, and was recruited for the expedition solely because of his ATA gene. The Psi Corps knows they could never find anything in common. Set in season one, shortly before "Letters From Pegasus." Teyla Emmagan/Elizabeth Weir
