I like how you went through John's thoughts and feelings of events. And I have to agree, sometimes growns up just need to act silly. Heh. Teyla catching John pulling a Bond-moment was cute though, and her mild amusement made me giggle. Nice job. *grins*

Food smut, hee. This was cute, I normally don't read this pairing, but having watched the first season I've grown to like Radek. Plus you wrote him very well. Your story was very enjoyable to read, thanks for sharing it. I loved the line about Rodney being able to build a stargate, but he can't make a cho. cake. *laughs* *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Author's Response: *waves back* hey, thanks for taking a chance on something you don't usually read. Radek has a way of growing on you... Glad you enjoyed the story.

Winds of Change by Mystic [NC-17]
[Reviews - 18]

Summary: (Sequel to: The Privateer by Sandy) John had promised he'd never see his father again, but two years later he's back in England and about to be married.

Squee! I loved the original story, but this 'Winds of Change' is in a totally different catergory. Your story was brilliant, utterly brilliant. I was amazed to see how long your fic was, especially considering it wasn't that long ago that Sandy posted ‘The Privateer’. Your Rodney was beyond convincing, I could just see the scenes happening. The way the characters dealt with the situations placed before them, and even how you weaved in cannon characters into roles that fit them so well – it’s amazing. When Chaya first showed up I was so torn, caught in Rodney’s monogamous conviction, but understanding John’s excuse for him to get some tail. The progress of Rodney’s personality was so gradual and natural. Changing from a snooty Lord to a hard working human being. Plus standing up for himself after John’s bad treatment of him, I couldn’t hold back a ‘you go girl!’ sorta moment. Hee. Each time the whoring was mentioned I was waiting for Rodney to do something so the situation changed, and his hopelessness of the whole thing made me connect with his character. It was so perfectly angsty! Because, he loved John, he didn’t want to leave him, but it hurt him so badly to see what to him was the man he loved basically saying he wasn’t enough every shore leave. And then he couldn’t do anything about it because John’s crew could mutiny. Oh it just made me want to glomp the woobie! John changed too, and his realization that what he could have, (soul mate/partner) the way it just came crashing down around him suddenly, I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen. Because as the captain of a privateer ship he didn’t see his actions as harmful, and then when he ignored it anyways, *sigh*. Made me want to smack him upside his thick head! *grins* When he finally allowed Rodney to show him how deeply he cherished him, darling the scene was beyond touching. I came very close to tears. The description and detail was beautiful. What struck me the most though was your grasp on the characters. I mean, obviously those on Atlantis aren’t from the eighteenth-century but you were able to translate their positions flawlessly back in time. Simon’s cameo as ditching Elizabeth even, you were able to bring in so many elements of the series into your story. I bow down before your almighty expertise as an author. *grins* I look forward to seeing more of your work in the near future, because now I’m addicted. *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Author's Response: *WOW* I am most humbled by your feedback. I am very pleased you enjoyed this story that much. Made the effort so worth it. I must credit again Sandy for inspiring the idea and thank her for letting me post this. I hope to deliver other stories you will enjoy just as much. Thank you very much, this REALLY made my day.

Gah! Loved this. *glomps* Absolutely loved it, John's pouty nature was adorable. Thinking he'd inadequate, hee. Great work. The hair discussion had me dying though. *cackles* John trying to grow dreads to hide knives, and then considering C4 as a hair product. *snort* Great work, I always love reading your stories. They're very original and highly amusing. Unfortunately now I've got an addiction to it worse that Aiden and the enzyme. *pouts* Write more? *grins* I wouldn’t want to have to kidnap SGA-1. *pause* *blink* Now that I’m thinking about it though . . . *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Coolie, I like the set up and how Ronon is an ally to Rodney. Or Zelenka in getting John and Rodney together. When I saw the bit with John molding up against Rodney I couldn't understand why he'd do that in front of Ronon. I like how you explained it though, and how Zelenka got out of telling Rodney what he saw by saying it was like the little kid in Sixth Sense. Hee. Nice incorporation of cannon universe. John’s reaction to the situations are greatly amusing as well. I can’t wait to see what you’ll do next. *grins* *glomps* * waves*

Author's Response: :D Thanks for the wonderful feedback. I'm glad you liked it.

Oh my god, that was too funny. I just about died six times while reading that. Now my roomies are looking at me like I'm crazy, so I had to stop and explain what was so fucking hilarious to them. Hee. This was utterly fucking fantastic. You kept Rodney and John in character, and set up a pretty realistic universe. Plus the plot was gold. Did I mention how I almost died six times while reading this? *grins* I am in love with your story. Oh god, *shakes head* this was just too amusing. I can't get over how awesome this was. I'm left speechless in the after glow. Rodney's reaction to John's planet having coffee was priceless. So was his denial of having sex with Sheppard. Heh. "Did he just call me 'Evil Overlord'?" There were so many great lines in this, but I rather liked that one. Again I have to give praise to the great amount of entertainment provided, thanks for sharing. I hope to see lots more of your work posted up in the future! *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Author's Response: Okay, so I just figured out finally how to respond to reviews (yeah, I'm a little slow). Thank you! You're so nice! I'm glad you thought it was funny and I'm really glad you thought I got the characterizations right. Those were obviously the two things I was going for (that and trying to force correct-ish grammar out of my head and onto the computer screen)

Woah. I'm amazed, I could see this happening. Great story, wonderful ending. You did an amazing job with the characters. The plot flowed well. Awesome idea, I love 'bringing coffee to Atlantis' stories, and this one was the best I've found so far. The ritual of the Night People was believable, and so were the reactions of those on Atlantis. I found this to be a very enjoyable read, thanks for sharing with us. *grins* *waves*

Hee. I got a total kick out of this, it was really cute but not to the point where you’re left with your teeth rotting. I'm surprised someone hasn't done something like this before, it’s such a great idea! I loved your description, it lead to a very interesting and amusing read. I liked how they all adored 'The Scientist' and how you worded Atlantis' crush on 'The One'. Heh. Very well done. I hope to see more of your work in the future; I’m still mesmerized by the whole idea. *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Author's Response: thank you very, very much, i'm happy you enjoyed this. but i really don't know what came over me, so probably no wonder no one's ever done this before.

Chapter 1: Everybody's Fool

Summary: John Sheppard is determined to bring to ruin the villainous McKay family. But young (ok, youngish) Rodney interferes with his plans. Okay, so this is what comes of reading the Harlequin SGA website which triggers memories of reading a thousand Regency/Historical novels as an impressionable youngster (**eek**, no wonder I'm twisted). The result is this complete and utter cliche **heh**. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of any of the historical/british terms and settings depicted in this story. They are from my fuzzy memory of romance novels. Nuff said.

Utterly brilliant! I just love seeing this story update, I squee'd like a true fangirl (scaring my roommates for life, hee) and clicked on it when I noticed you'd updated. Loved this chapter. The way Rodney thinks is just so realistic, and I like how you write him. I mean, he's been abused by his father/brother so he's not going to be all that trusting towards people (strong male figures especially) and you convey that in this. It's like, Rodney isn't over come with his lust for John and jumping his new boss's bones. He's got an actual fear of the repercussions for all of his actions, and the consequences that will come if he displeases Shep---and I like that you've added that. It brings a certain believable element to the story. John's irritation at Rodney's "inexplicable" behavior amuses me greatly, almost as much as Rodney's fear of Ronon. His relief at John not calling Ronon over had me in fits. Hee. Poor woobie. His dad is a real piece of work, but it's great. Which, ok I realize just how tweaked that sounds but y'know what I mean. We only beat on the ones we love. All and all I'm loving this, thanks for sharing with us. I so can't wait for the next chapter, I've become addicted to your work. *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you think it's 'realistic' in the boundaries of its own universe. And yes I understand exactly what you mean. Oh, how we love to put our favorite characters through the wringer. Only to see them triumph in the end ouf course :)
