Updated this. Figured it was time. What's to know about me? I'm from West Virginia (which, really, should tell you all ya need to know right there), I'm 26 and female. Also socially inept and a bit too burried in my own head.

Anywho, my OTPs (because I can't pick just one) are:

McShep (of course! *rolls eyes*)
McKay/Beckett (what would they be? McBeck? And, hey, canon!)
McKay/Zelenka (McLenka? Gotta love geeks!)
Shep/Zelenka (cause, y'know, they just work)
Zelenka/Beckett (I blame the "Rover" series for this one. Thanks a lot, Orithain and Rina)
Ronan/Teyla (wow, a het pairing! And, hey, looks like it'll be canon soon!)
Lorne/Liz (another het pairing. Amazing. I blame "Lost Boys" for this one, though. They were SO shippin')
Lorne/Parrish (this pairing NEEDS more fic in it, demmit)
McKay/Cadman (dear lord, a third het pairing. Oddly enough, they could work. Also another pairing that needs more fics, though)


And OT3:

Shep/McKay/Beckett (my first in the fandom)
Shep/McKay/Zelenka (my fav because geek!Shep)
Shep/McKay/Weir (...they work, believe me)

Note: I answer the reviews you kind folk leave at my LJ. *shrugs* Find it's easier cause I tend to ramble.

A lovely piece, thanks for sharing. I liked how ya followed the ep from Carson's POV, starting with that infirmary scene. That scene was almost enough to sell me on the pairing by itself. Also liked the ending, John explaining and his apology. So sweet!

Good piece. Really liked how ya dealt with th' aftermath o' th' Siege, at least Rodney's part anyway. And a bit of the others. Don't guess this could be extended into a series or have a few sequels detailing his recovery, huh? Pity. I really liked this. Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response: Sequel? Series?! You have no idea how long I've been trying to write *this*! It's been written, and completely scrapped, and written again several times. But that's not to say that there won't be future opportunities to write something in a similar vein. Second half of Season 2 sounds very promising, from the spoilers.

*fans self* Oh my. That was...hot and sweet and wow. Can we see more of these two or is this it? Pretty please let us see more of this John/Rodney. I loved how they flirted and how John picked up on Rodney's not-so-subtle staring and wow. Thank you SO much for sharing!

Author's Response: It was fun to write a kind of "love at first sight" story. I don't normally let myself do that, except for birthdays and holidays, and it's always so fun to write. Thanks!

Wow. Not only funny in seeing John and Rodney snark while playing chess, but some info on it as well. Didn't realize it was that organized. I mean, I did, but...*shakes head* Shutting up now. Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response: Yeah, it's a little organized isn't it, and I'm glad you thought it was funny between Rodney and John, that's what I was going for.
Chapter 1: The Chess Game

Summary: He had the memories of a life he'd been forced out of and the reality of a life he didn't want.

(Implied non-con. There is no written rape scenes, though it is spoken of. There are some parts where it is all but shown, so be warned.)

Fuck. Damn. Whoa. Awesome fic. I mean. Wow. Damn. So emotional. So...wow. Rodney's pain...wow. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Author's Response: And thank you for reviewing! I'm glad you liked it. This is one of my favorite fics and I'm happy to hear that even months after I posted it, it's still well recieved. :)
Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: Shit happens. In the Pegasus galaxy, shit happens a lot. Usually, it's weird shit, but this time it was just regular, normal shit. Note: Thanks to Kyrieane for virtual brainstorming and handholding and snark.

Oh happy day! The boys bond! More! More! Love how they talk over tequila. Also LOVE Rodney's lime comment. Heh. Never thought how much it must suck to not be able to have lime with th' tequila.

Author's Response: I know - I couldn't deal with tequila at all without the lime.

*L* Good ending to the series. Good fic over-all. Good chapter. Wonderful. Thank you for this.
Chapter 9: Chapter 9

Summary: And John pouted, which was on his list of things he really regretted he could no longer see. Because John Sheppard, Lieutenant Colonel, with his lips pursed out and shoulders slightly slumped was the exact incarnation of the best five-year-old's pout he had ever witnessed.
