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.
Beta-reader: Yes
Reviews by Susan

Summary: A companion piece (and fixit!!) to Ashes by
shaddyr. You should totally read Ashes before you read this. First, because it's a beautiful story, and second, because this will make way more sense if you do.

You fixed the angst. That's a no, no. Me loveth the angst. Now all I can think about is how they are back together now. I want Rodney to suffer in silence with Katie. Aw, you have captured their love. That is something few writers have been able to do!

Author's Response: Oh, but Shaddyr and I decided we just couldn\'t leave them like that!! They\'re so in love and meant to be... :) Glad you liked it!

Okay, read it a second time. Still amazing. I really, really need to know if this is something you are going to continue or not. If you are not going to continue, I need to put it out of my mind before it drives me crazy!

Author's Response: I do not plan a sequel, so I\'m sorry it\'s driving you crazy! In my head, Sheppard answers the door and they end up having fabulous sex. But that\'s just me.

God, their finally on the same show/place and they can't even get close because Rodney has Katie now. Thanks for writing this. At least I can dream.

I don't get the title.

Author's Response: Clockwork orange is a reference to the final scene, because in the movie of the same title, \"Clockwork Orange\", the main character beats another man while singing \"Singing in the Rain\".
Chapter 1: Chapter 1
Reviewer: Susan (Signed)

Okay, I didn't get the singing part the first time I read it. I hardly read any story fully, and for me to read it twice is quite the honor. Are you up for critical, harsh reviews? One: I suggest that you italicize the lines of the song, so that the audience KNOWS that Shep is singing. I skim stories, and if it had been italicized, I might have understood it a bit better the first time. Kisses.

Author's Response: It is indicated that he is singing, a fact which can be seen by the use of the verb \"sang\" not once, but twice. Italics in this case would be extremely distracting and would be rather redundant. Thanks for the review.

ROTFL!!!!! Love it. But I must say that the big and tall store is accross from the mall, not actually inside.

Author's Response: Oooh, well, that makes sense. They couldn\'t pay the mall\'s rental rates since their only customer has only been to Earth once in the past two years. ;-D

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate an actual plot AND a mystery. It was really heart warming, and I love how I had to re-evaluate my feelings for McKay just like Shep after we find out the secret. Thanks for sharing!

Author's Response: Oh yes, I\'m a total plot junkie. This one was a real struggle to write, though, so I appreciate knowing you enjoyed it -- thanks!

I hate to say that this story has been done before, but I think it molds all of those stories like it into a sculpted shining peice of art. The emotions and drama are all there. Even though we already have the full story, you know how to hook us that the end of a story to read the next line. Anytime someone ends a chapter with "Koyla" goes down as a winner in my book. All in all, a very nice addition to the genre. Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response: Kolya, to me, is the best of the bad guys, the one you love to hate, and so I very much wanted him to be the villain of the piece. (And I also wanted to give him an end much more fitting than the pitiful one he received in canon.) Thank you so much for your lovely feedback.

That was really sweet, but it made my feet really cold. Maybe they're cold because it is 3 degrees outside, but still. I really liked the mention of Madison and Rodney acting like a real uncle and taking her places. Thanks for sharing.

From beginning to end, that was a fantastic story. You did an incredible job of illustrating John's frustrations and needs for pain. The relationship between John and Rodney was so caring and well developed. Thank you so much for sharing. Five stars *****

Author's Response: Aw, thank you! I don\'t think anyone\'s ever rated me before (pleased and embarassed shuffle on this end). I\'m glad you enjoyed it and took the time to let me know (I was biting my nails as I posted this one--I had my doubts...) Thank you again!

LOL! Oh, I love this story. I love the summary, and just love the whole story. I totally enjoyed how his food kept falling off of his fork while he was eating. God, that's annoying. A four-year-old is doing this? Holy cow, they are in trouble. Rodney's speculation on what the kid will do when he gets older is great. LOVE THIS!!! Thanks for writing and sharing.
