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.

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.

Author's Response: Thank you! I am so glad that you enjoyed it!

Poor Dr. Z. Gosh, even your title is clever!

Author's Response: *grin* I am quite sure that Zelanka will get plenty of milage out of this incident. He\'ll hold it over McKay\'s head for months. Quite possibly years! I am happy that you enjoyed it!

Chapter 1: Hallways and Demons

Summary: In which Ronon goes for a swim, and Sheppard misses the boat. Second in the Idiomatic series; follows Par for the Course and will make more sense read after that story, though it can be read alone.

More yes? There better be more. A lot more. Hate to nit pick (but that is what I do), but why are they in Denver on leave? I understand the leave part, but what is wrong with the Springs? Personally, and it is your story and not mine, but I think it would make more sense for this to take place on Fort Carson, Peterson Airforce Base, or Colorado Springs. I admit, I am biased. Or maybe there is more story as to why they are in Denver. I demand more.

Author's Response: There\'s more. ;) I see that you found the next story already, and I\'m working on the one after that. There was also a story that came before this one; I\'m not sure if you saw it, but if not and you\'re interested, it\'s Par for the Course. As for why Denver, in the earlier story Sheppard was sick of being cooped up under the Mountain, and Colorado Springs just didn\'t seem quite far enough away. He wanted to drive first, so Denver it was. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the story, and I\'m glad you were interested enough in it to take time to wonder about Denver and ask!
Chapter 1: Making a Splash
Reviewer: Susan (Signed)
17 Dec 2007
Okay, I get the Denver thing now. Yeah, you have to drive fast up there, or you'll be run over! You are slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite authors. Keep up the good work! Ooo, this thought just came to me. What if John took Ronon to the museum? Shows him all the dino bones and ancient cavemen? That might be fun to explore. I can just see Ronon standing still next to a caveman and the jumping out and scaring a troop of girl scouts!

Author's Response: It\'s good to hear the Denver thing works in the context of the previous story, thanks. Heh - the museum could be funny. I can see John thinking the dinosaurs are cool, and Ronon being completely unimpressed because he\'s killed things scarier than that. ;)
Chapter 1: Making a Splash

Summary: Sheppard and Ronon finally talk – but not much. PWP Reunion tag. Third story in the Idiomatic series; follows Par for the Course and Making a Splash, but can be read alone.

I love this! I love when the couple does something against the rules. I love when they can't do something because they don't have a condom. I love when there can't be marks. I love when one contemplates bending the other over and taking what they want. LOVE THE ANGST! Thanks so much for bringing enough of your sweet and sour candies to share with the whole class!

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m delighted that the story worked for you in all those ways. :)

Speilberg can direct. John Williams will obviously compose the theme music. Quintin Tarintino can guest direct. I will write the screen play. You, Raven, can be my the assistant director and creative consultant. Bubbles will be played by herself. We will see if the other actors will be willing to take a pay cut, so we can really give Bubbles the salary she truely deserves. Patty the penguin can do make-up. Dementi would be perfect as the gaffer. Llanea can cater. I, of course, will be the humble producer. Now all we have to do is fly to Hawaii to begin filming. Can I, uh, borrow a few, ah hundred? You know, just to get to Hawaii. I'm just short on cash right now. As soon as I get to Hawaii, I'll pay you back, I swear.

'John found himself perfectly content to sit sipping champagne and listening to Rodney McKay rant about life, the universe, and everything.' The answer is 47, you must include that or everyone will be consumed with the big questions, life, the universe, and everything. I tease. I love how they both talk adnausium about comic book characters. I love that they can get into an endless discusion like that. Very cool, and it shows that they are into each other.

Author's Response: Well I got the idea for the chats about comic book characters from canon SGA - the TPTB have been increasing the number of snippets of geeky conversations we see Sheppard and McKay having, and I for one love it. So I decided to indulge myself in fic :) I\'m so glad you think the endless discussions show how into each other they are, it means I got something right *happy dance*

okay, we've had quite a balance of the cute and the angst. Now we need to get to the kink, my dearest friend. All these long paragraphs are hard on my poor, wee, plot-hating little head. But, truely, don't listen to me anymore. 30 reviews and only five chapters?!?! congradulations on your extremely well recieved fic. You are more than welcome to fire me as beta, researcher, and/or developer. I do like all the little quotes inside the big paragraphs like the, "Hey, honey, can I give you a lap dance," "Viva Relativity" etc. They add wit and humor, so if I were to suggest anything, it would be to add more of those.

Author's Response: I\'m so sorry that there\'s so much plot for you to wade through *sighs* unfortunately I\'m just a wordy person (as you well know *g*). Would you believe that this story originally started out in my head as a PWP ? But when I tried to write it that way, John and Rodney objected, strenuously - I can\'t fight the characters LOL. And as always thanks for your suggestions, keep on making them. Some of those witty, humorous bits you liked are thanks to chats we\'ve had :D
Chapter 5: The Morning After
Reviewer: Susan (Signed)

How it should have read: John froze for a moment, holding his hands awkwardly in the air away from Rodney's body, before relaxing into the hug and returning it. Rodney broke the hug, moved backwards and lifted his suitcase. He shrugged his shoulders and grinned at John before walking off towards the security gate. John stood and watched Rodney walk past the desk and start off down the hall towards the security area. Watching Rodney taking those steps that would seperate him from his friend for so long felt like a kick in John's heart.

He cried out, 'Rodney!'

Rodney stopped and turned.

John couldn't explain it, couldn't stop it or change it. His legs carried him past the desk and back to those crooked lips and warm body.

John felt his knees quake, and he suddenly couldn't breath. Rodney was so close. So close to being gone.

'Did I forget something?'

'Um . . .' John cupped Rodney's cheek in his hand, closed his eyes and leaned into Rodney's heat.

John felt a surge of electricity the moment their lips touched.

'Come back soon, buddy,' John said quietly before turning and heading towards the exit and back to his car.

Author's Response: Suz, I do wish I\'d written this - god damn it, we have to write another story together...and soon!!

Got the kitten letter! Very cute. So glad things are going so increadibly well for you. Steady pay checks are always neat. If neat means fantastic. Go you! I'm wanting to send you more tourist junk, but I'll let you know when they are on the way. Ever eaten rock candy? The review, right. Okay, mistress of suspense and geek references, more of the sexiness. Hand cuffs and paddles, blowjobs and rim jobs. Can I say that in a review? Alright, maybe we'll start with holding hands and soapy showers together because the water heater is on the fritz. Betsy did die of sorts, so that is why I have been out of sorts. Email is busted, so I'm emailing you a fic through wraithbait. You're glorious!

Author's Response: Awwww, you make the best and most original suggestions for things to include in my fics :D I do love my new title \"mistress of suspense and geek reference \", I think I want it put on a sign on my office door ;)

hehe, cute! I learned Iratus comes from the Latin, angry. I love those lines about the tiny Ancient beds, and Ancients, therefore not having sex. I personally believe that sex is the key to assention. My favorite fanfic cliche is the flashing blue Ancient virgin detector.
