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.

Oh, boy. This was really sad. One particularly poignant line was the one about how Carson valued (past tense) people over data. A nice, subtle way to tell us he was gone.

Cool! I like how Zelenka figured it out, and totally doesn't care except that it gives him more time in the lab! Very funny, and I wish that folx in real life could be like that.

I thought you were going to give him a tattoo! Now that would have been interesting to try and remove... ;-)

Author's Response: eeeekk! Somehow, I don't see that happening and John remaining *unaware* of said attentions while he's asleep. The marker? Yes...it can feel like fondling. A needle? ::shudders again::

I found the image of the dead pet to be very poignant. I wonder why we haven't seen more of that.

Definitely intriguing! And impressive snarkiness between Rodney and John. Actually, this seems like more than just snarkiness, this is getting downright nasty. I'm sure you have a reason for it, though. :-) I also liked Carson's POV. It does seem weird that a guy who could find the ATA gene is the same guy who does routine post-mission checks. Waiting for the next installment...

I really love the way you've portrayed the characters, particularly Carson. You've got his personality down pat.

I'm definitely enjoying this second installment, too. I know I said it before, but I really enjoy the way you write Carson Beckett.

I also like the concept behind the Wraith dart and the things that Teyla had to do to fly it. Rodney's angst and confusion were very well done, with him simultaneously realizing something about himself and afraid that his feelings would not be returned.

Aww, this is so cute. They do make a good couple. I think I found a Freudian slip in this. You write: "How long does it take the run these testes?" (when the gene is just discovered). Testes? Rodney's hornier than he thought...

Author's Response: Hehe...maybe he is, lol. Mental note to fix that. But glad you like the story. :)

I love Radek's way of bluntly making comments. And Rodney's answering sputter!

I enjoyed this a lot. I never really thought of Elizabeth and Peter as lovers, but this also works if they're really close friends. I can't imagine her not having these pent-up emotions, since she couldn't react at all during the height of the siege.

Author's Response: Thank-you.

Ooh, you used the word "narcissistic" in a fic! I was really happy when I got to use the word "countertransference" in one of mine (not posted here yet). I'm enjoying this so far. Are you a fellow shrink? ;-)

Author's Response: LOL! Thanks so much for enjoying my vocabulary. :-) Actually I'm an MD eye surgeon with a PhD in physiology. But I still remember a fair amount of internal medicine from my intern days. Thanks again!

I think I saw this either on LJ or ff.net, and it's just as good reading it the second time around. I love your description of the characters as archetypes: the Scientist, the Pilot, the Hungry, etc. And Atlantis is the Mother of all.
