Angst junky. I like new and fresh ideas. As the name suggests, I would also like to beta these fresh, original tales of terror and destruction. If your interests are anything like mine, you will enjoy reading Xanthe, Haggy, and especially Darkestangel.

Oh, My, God! You have such a great fic. You captured each and every one of the characters so well. I envy your talent and am hopeful for another great fic from you soon. Your story is at the top of my favorites list. Great job!

Author's Response: *blushes* I'm glad you're enjoying it! I am currently working on part four - slowly, alas, but it should turn up eventually.

Are they going to get anywhere in the next chapter, you know what I mean. Seriously, you have a great story going right now. Please tell me you have a great plot lined up. I thank you for posting what work you do have done. I hate it when authors write a ton, leave a cliff and never get back to writing the rest of the story. Good job. I WANT MORE!

Author's Response: Well there's another chapter up now (5) - but don't expect more until next week. It will continue.

I love the detail about the Discovery Channel. That was too funny. Also very much liking our snobby Beckett. I can't wait to find out what happens next and to read more witty humor.

Author's Response: Thanks! And I am enjoying researching this almost as much as writing it. :)

I hate to say it, but you've dragged this fic out so long that I am no longer interested. Please, have something more interesting happened. I am getting so bored.

I sooooo love this story. I would very much like to see more action (you know what I mean). I'd love to see how sweet they are together in that way. Loved the lemonade joke. I think seeing Jeenie would be a great idea. Maybe she can convince Rodney that he really does want kids (if only because I want him to).

Powerful, very powerful. I would have enjoyed an actual story, though. One in which there was dialog, people crying as they buried Carson, people resigning to their fate as Elizabeth is buried, and more detail on how John and Rodney started a relationship. Maybe (if you want to be my favorite person in the whole wide world) you could make this into the prologue of an epic in which each thing you describe takes place in more detail. Please, don't stop this fic now! Please, please, please, please!

Author's Response: I could very much do that, though not right now. So many WIPs I need to finish first but I'll let you into the secret - there's a touch more for this story yet. :)

This story could use a great deal of work, but I am glad that you did finish and post it. So often, we have an idea, write part of it, and it takes up space on our hard drive and always wonder what people would have thought about it. Next time you want to post a fic, please email me, and I will be more than happy to beta you for content, grammar, etc. susanthebeta@yahoo.com Hope to hear from you soon.

I really like this story. I like the interpersonal relationships the team can have outside of the show. Good job.

Author's Response: Thanks! Teyla and Rodney are two characters that I feel should have more interaction than they do on the show, and I love filling in the blanks :)

Love this story and am axieously awaiting a sequal. I'd be happy to beta your next fic. My spelling is less attrocous when I use Word. You seemed to be fairly good with grammar, spelling, etc. Susanthebeta@yahoo.com A few things to help your story sound more realistic. Alchol gets a brown color from the oak barrels it ferments in. Wine from the grape skins. Does Radek use barrels? I wouldn't think so. Anarctica is either night for half the year or day for half the year, so it wouldn't be pink in the morning because morning comes in six months, unless it was between seasons, but still. I had the impression that Rodney's foot was more badly damaged. Shouldn't he go to Carson and have it fixed . . . and maybe confront him if it works for the story. If not, than a nurse can fix him. NICE! More soon!

Author's Response: Thank you for the comments. No offence but your spelling is indeed pretty horrible :-) However, your pointers were very very good and I might just take you up on your offer... I'm glad you liked the story. Ch3 is being betaed atm so update should follow in a few days.

Wow, this could almost be a sequal for Wonderland by ForCryinOutLoud. You two should really get together and write something. You're styles are so alike, I thought that this was the actual sequal.
