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. :)

My poor whump-ed woobie. *snuggles Rodney* I can see it now - they finally get out of the chair room, and once they're safely back in the Jumper, Rodney does that little hand wave thing and murmurs something about "I'll just pass out now, thank you." and does exactly that. *chuckle* This story is, of course, highly entertaining. ;) ----}-@ Krys

*snicker* Not to be deterred, that's our Rodney. No matter what the personal cost, he's gonna do his best to emotionally separate himself and analyze the entire thing ad nauseum. ----}-@ Krys

I think I would have to friggin shoot someone. And I think it is definitely a very BAD idea to prank the entire flagship team. I mean, C'MON... Rodney AND John?! Aie, hell on the hoof, my friend... Heh heh heh... Can't believe that Carson would agree to pranking poor Aiden like that. Laddie needs his rest, foor cryin' out loud... *snicker* Excellent tale. The whumping was most enjoyable as well! ;) ----}-@ Krys

These letters are really cool. And you know, that inspired a little plot bunny... would you like it? Please? Made me think of a short fic of when John and the others came back to the SGC after the Siege was over, that maybe Jack would show up at some point with that shit-eating grin, and a six-pack. Excellent letters, m'dear. Loved the progression from formality to familiarity. ----}-@ Krys
