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.

Neat! I haven't seen very many people write about what John's interface with Atlantis is like for him, so I particularly enjoyed that part of it. Also, the part with Atlantis being willing to shoot O'Neill to protect her favorite son just broke my heart.

Author's Response: Thanks! I\'ve always liked fics that explored whether and how John and Atlantis interacted, and made sure to do something with it myself. I\'m glad it worked.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: B:tVS, Atlantis. Rodney was seldom impressed with other people's work at the best of times, and today's roster of prospective additions to the science team seemed to have been specially chosen to send his blood pressure through the roof.

Hee! Wait 'til Rodney learns what the Initiative was. He'd hate being compared to a project run by a "soft-science" psychologist! And I love the bit about Oz's "high maintenance" hair. :-)

Not really. The book is about one man's revenge kick, which doesn't really apply here. :-) Thanks for reviewing!

Wow. I've always been partial to "Atlantis declares independence" stories. This one is especially sad, since it's also associated with the death of friends. Hope you continue it.
