*snicker* Very nice. Nice to see a nervous Sheppard.

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. I just love when Sheppard starts to get that "okay, NOW I'm uncomfortable in a wierd sort of way" look on his face. Hope it came through. Thanks again for the feedback. MA

Nice take on the relationships - felt very in character. Esp liked the touch about the Marines and their Rodney-baiting - made Griffin's sacrifice even more poignant. And the mystery... you have me intrigued!

Author's Response: Thanks!! It's the relationships that draw me to SGA, so they're the best thing to write!

She's enjoying every minute of the fresh air, the bright sunlight, and the sounds that are unlike anything she'd ever heard on Earth. (Kate Heightmeyer/John Sheppard, John and Rodney friendship, Kate and Teyla friendship.)

I suppose you know I would love this. Finally some NC-17 S/H. And well written as well. Lovely. :D

Author's Response: Heh. I was wondering if you\'d see this, since you\'re one of the five Sheppard/Heightmeyer fans out there. :) I\'m glad you like it! Thanks so much! (Hey, I have a Heightmeyer/Sheppard/Weir AU I can point you to if you\'re interested in threesome fics. And AUs.)

*happy sigh* Nice progresion for the two of them. Also I liked the way you get Sheppard's feelings on his job through seeing what Kate is now going through.

Author's Response: Thanks! I think action-adventure shows in general often downplay the heroes reactions to the things they do, but it interests me. I\'m glad you liked it.

That was a great crack story, with the McShep just adding that certain lovely fluffiness.
Chapter 1: Zombie Fever

Summary: "You wouldn't know 'okay' if it came running at you with a pitchfork." Rodney smacked his hand against John's forehead and left it there through John's growling dissent. "First of all, your lungs sound like a carburetor. And second, I'm surprised you haven't burst into flames."
