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.

Okay, you have a great story and your summary is, In a Bar. Come on! You wrote this great fic, and that is your way of getting them to read it. Use that artistic talent of yours and write a great summary to get more people to read. It is your duty as the owner of a great fic.

Author's Response: Okay, I changed the summary, I hope it works, and gets more people to read it. Thanks for giving me the motivation, plus I fixed the title that was driving me nuts.

Ahhh! :D Once again you have shocked a smile out of me. You know, this is a side note, I have always wanted to know why the ancient wanted to be intimate with John. Maybe she wanted to have a child. What other reason, besides physical pleasure, could there be? It would be interesting to have the team find a little one running around when they got there. Don't listen to me if you already have something established, but it would be an interesting read.---Your loyal fan, Susan.

If I may suggest something as a avid fanfic reader to a newbie writer: please make your paragraphs MUCH shorter. I just don't want to pay attention when there are so many words. Thanks for posting your otherwise excellent fic, and I hope to see more by you on the site.

Author's Response: Thanks. I was a little worried about that myself. I'll try to space it a bit better next time.

I just read your story. I swear, I did not mean to steal your Breathless theme in my story, "Lost But Not Little Boys." I can't believe that I missed reading this when you first posted it. I totally love your spin on the whole thing. I would have liked to have gone here with my own story, but it just didn't seem to fit with the main direction that I wanted my story to flow to. Some of the folks reading my story have requested a storyline like yours. I am totally going to refer them to your story. Thanks for the great read!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I'm very flattered. And it's a popular theme, believe me, others have used it and I always figure, the more, the merrier!

Holy Crap. This is one, if not the greatest fanfic I have ever read. There was so much great emotion. You should write soap operas. I LOVED the funny retorts that they had for one another. "Doomed, and spidy sense" were my favorites. I hope to read more from you very soon.

OMG, don't stop. I want more. This a cool new genre of SGA you have created, and I would hate to see the first of its kind not continue on into an interesting story.

Author's Response: A whole new genre? me? Wow! How very awesome! I do have plans to go back to it, just not sure *WHEN*. But I can't leave it alone, I know that much. Love vampire genre and the AU too much *G* thank you for commenting and saying that!!

Cliff! NICE chapter! I am the type of person to skip all of the fluff to get to the dessert. The emotions in you story totally stops me from doing that. Right now, I am more interested in the group theropy than the NC-17 rating.

Author's Response: That might be the most meaningful compliment anyone has ever given me about my writing. Thanks so much!

This "epic" is truely the best fic I have ever read in my entire life. You should get an award and money. Do you have a website? I don't know if you had fixed the run-ons by the time I read it, but you have a flawless fanfic. I, too, wish that there had been a little interlude for the three while on the planet, but I don't think you could do that with Rodney's suffering. Great job, and for all of your many, many fans out here, when can we expect another STA epic?

Author's Response: Oh thank you so much! I'm so pleased with how this story turned out that it's lovely to hear from people. I haven't done anything extra to the story yet - I'm not sure where the run on sentences are - I'd need to re-read for that. I do have a website at www.xanthe.org. I'm new to SGA so only a few fics in that fandom there - I wrote a lot in XF. However I do have hundreds of SGA plot bunnies in my head so I expect I'll be posting quite a bit there! Thanks so much for your kind feedback.

Excellent, excellent first chapter. My favorite part was when McKay thought of sending a card to his father. Hillarious! I am so glad that you made Sheppard throw-up at the loss of Rodney. There was no need for explaination, just pure emotion.

Author's Response: yes, well, it would make me feel pretty sick to lose somebody just like that. glad you liked this chapter. :)

Somehow I doubt that they would just give up that easily on McKay. Not even a random gate address search? Ah, it is your story, and you do tell it well. I LOVED McKay's ramble as he cursed himself for eating before he changed bandages, etc, etc. I could really feel the icy wind on my face, the nausia at the loss of a friend. God, your good at this story telling. Do me a favor, write a book.

Author's Response: i can't see how they'd do that - if pegasus is anything like the milky way, there are hundreds of stargates, not to mention thousands of possibilities address-wise. a random search would, in my opinion, be even more futile than that needle in the haystack thing, and they just can't spare the time or energy. it's sad, but rodney's not the first loss, and won't be the last. they'll just have to cope. but i'm very glad that you like this story, i put a lot of time and effort into it. and thank you, thank you very much for your kind words, that's... well, it sure is flattering. :)

I still think that they would go searching for Rodney. (The SG-1 would and has searched for extended periods of time for lost members). Even if they just sat at a table and thought about where the Geni (spelling?) might have a hidden planet. Search the Atlantian database for other outposts, something. But again, this is your story; plus, the *69 idea for the gate addresses is quite good and adds to the creativity of the story. You don't even have to go to the NC-17 rating part of the story to keep me interested (the rating is the ONLY reason I ever read these stories). You have me so hooked on your descriptions of the wind, ice, loss, frustration, humor, and so much more that I wouldn't be able to put down your next chapter. Kisses and good luck finishing quickly!

Author's Response: again, thank you very much for your input. i'm glad you like this story despite some "differences of opinion". ;) i hope you like the next chapter as well. as for finishing quickly: not a chance. this will have 15-16 parts, each of which takes me hours to write, so i guess you'll have to bear with me for a while. :)

***** Five Stars!!! You have one beautiful story without a single flaw. Even the "burning in places he didn't want to think about" parts were so tastefully done. Usually I scream to have those naughty scenes put into a fic, but not putting them in your story added so much to the terror. This story was one in a million, and you deserve many, many positive reviews. Great work.

Author's Response: I also normally like graphic but this time decided to try something new. I'm very glad it worked out the way I intended. :) I appreciate the feedback. :) And thanks for all your kind words. :)

A W S O M E! I love this story. Oh, the angst, the sly, evil Kavanaghelkhe. Oh, the hurt Rodney, the embarresment. I would love a sequal in which Rodney has to deal with the fact that Sheppard knows his "tastes" in people. SEQUAL!

Author's Response: I want to write a sequel ! I really do :-) I'm hoping to find time soon but life's been extremely hectic since December *sigh* Glad you liked this enough to want to know what happened next :-)

Summary: John didn't even bother attempting to put out the joint when Rodney waltzed into his room. Notes: I read a fic the other day in which the author used the phrase 'pot plants' several times. Now, I know she meant 'potted plants' or 'plants in pots', but every time I saw it, I kept imagining the balconies of Atlantis lined with Ancient!pot plants, and John, slouched in his chair, pulling out a joint to pass around. Hence, crack!fic was born. Or would that be weed!fic? *g* Written: December 22, 2005
