Um, hello. *waves*
I'm a woman (*snort* DUH); am over 30 (so you can't trust me *snicker*); married and am a mom; work as a professional picture framer at an art restoration shop in the Washington DC area; worship at the altar of Heinlein, Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen King, Spider Robinson, Piers Anthony, Christopher Stasheff, Marion Zimmer Bradley as well as Ursula Le Guinn and other awesome literary gods. *BG*

An example of how weird I am? I love to read psychology and psychiatry medical research papers on ADHD and emotional disorders... FOR FUN. Okay, okay, for personal edification as well, but still... *snicker* I haven't had much time to read my journals lately though, as the writing bug has firmly latched onto my jugular (like a certain pesky Iratus bug we dare not mention around Sheppard *snort*), and is not allowing me any other avenues of self-expression at the moment. *sobs* My poor PhotoShop is feeling SO neglected!

As for other entertainment, I can only say that my early development was heavily influenced by Looney Tunes and Monty Python's Flying Circus. And Douglas Adams. You ever listen to the Hitchhiker's Guide radio series? Bloody friggin' brilliant, m'dears.

Fell in love with SGA even before I'd ever once watched an episode of SG1, would you believe? Anywho, I'm not a proliferate writer by any stretch of the imagination, although the stories I do write end up being pretty long. I'm an avid reader of all kinds of stories... het, slash and gen... and am unabashedly a whumpaholic. *BEG* Especially when it concerns Rodney McKay. What can I say? I'm hopelessly addicted to the man. ;) And as much as I love reading slash, I am unfortunately way too scared to ever write it. Sorry folks. I tend to limit myself to staying within the general parameters dictated in the show. Hey, I wanna be a scriptwriter someday! Maybe. If I don't suck grandly at it. *BG*

Oh, and PS - if you check out the people I've on my favorite authors list, you won't be disappointed. I chose them because I love every single story they've ever written. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Go. Read. They're brilliant. :)

I guess what I'm a little surprised with is the fact that Carson's taking the time to chew John a friggin new one, when Rodney could very well be bleeding out internally. Yeah, I know Carson's exhausted and not exactly thinking straight, especially now that he's faced with his good friend's assault and torture, but it's always been drilled into a doctor that you first stabilize the patient, and THEN deal with anything else. No matter how much certain Air Force Majors and Expedition Leaders deserve that severe tongue-lashing. Still, completely riveted here. ----}-@ Krys

Wow. Only one thing... what's the age differential between Rodney and Carson in this one? It really seemed that they'd be at the most 5 years apart in age in the series... unless Carson was a Scottish Doogie Howser... ----}-@ Krys

I have absolutely no sympathy for Elizabeth in this one. She sacrificed Rodney and didn't do a fucking thing to protect him. She literally threw him to the wolves in order to protect her not-so-precious ass. She smelled like sex only because she was wearing Rodney's jacket... that's what had the smell drenched all over it. Bitch. Yup, so not happy, and am very protective of my favorite genius scientist. So can't see Rodney and John getting together at the moment... How could Rodney ever trust another man to come close to him again? Other than Carson... Please tell me you're updating this soon? ----}-@ Krys

*snickersnort* To quote my favorite Jaffa - "Indeed." *BG* Absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing this with us intrepid readers. I especially like how difficult it was for John to open up with Rodney. It's just so... him, isn't it? "Not so good with the talking stuff." *nods* Rodney has his defensive mechanisms, and John does too. Slightly different approaches *chuckle*, but achieving the same thing - keeping people at arms' length. Very difficult to overcome years of self-conditioned behavior, especially with someone of the same ilk. But as I said earlier... so very worth it. ----}-@ Krys

It's perfect. I have to think that the others would've been worried, especially Elizabeth, seeing as how she saw how much Rodney's arm had been bleeding and how much it had hurt him all through their ordeal. Wonderfully written, and a joy to read over and over again. ----}-@ Krys

MUA-HAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!! 'Bout damned time she got sick! Payback's a bitch, ain't it? *snicker* I'd love to see Elizabeth try to sneak out to do work when she's all feverish... then she'd have nothing to say to John and Rodney about their little escapade. *BEG* Really great read. ----}-@ Krys

*snicker* Maybe the "cat" is the reason why the people on that planet left so hurriedly. *BEG* It's in actuality a sentient being that tends to pull a psycho-boil-the-bunny routine on its "owners". *snort* An alien cat that's hell-bent on conquering the universe. *snicker* Take the wee beastie and toss it through the Gate into the Genii homeworld! *snort* Well done, m'dear. Excellent read. ----}-@ Krys

Wow. So friggin yummy. But really bad that they had to go through that to get to that point, ya know? So, did Williams languish in the brig, or did they toss him through the Gate to be Wraith fodder? Hell, I vote for the latter. *growls* No one fucks with our dynamic duo! ----}-@ Krys
