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. :)

Excellent bonding moment between the guys. Yeah, I know all too well what it's like to not be able to sleep. Terminal insomniac here... *waves hand in mock giddiness* As a matter of fact, I'm writing this review at 4:59am. Yikes, right? *snort* Thank heavens for weekends, when I can get caught up on sleep that I don't get during the week. So well written. ----}-@ Krys

Wait a frickin minute. How did they get their weapons back? I thought when Weir, Bates and Beckett were transported inside the dome, their weapons had been mysteriously confiscated. This smells a little hinky to me. Who shot the aliens that were herding our humans down the hall? Ach, questions questions. ----}-@ Krys

I just can't get enough of reading this story. It's so frelling cool. Especially with the whole Rodney possession/whumping thing. Exquisite job. ----}-@ Krys

Author's Response: Hee, thank you! I have been toying every now and then with a follow up to this story but we'll have to see if I can finish some of my other things first!

*snickersnort* Banter spot on. The internal dialogue is a refreshing change, and very well written. You have the characters' voices and mannerisms down pat. Well done. ----}-@ Krys
Chapter 6: Six - End
Special by Shadow Side [NC-17]

Man, talk about Stockholm Syndrome... Oy, Kate would have a friggin field day with analyzing Rodney and the whole Kolya thing. Guy's an exquisitely lethal and practically homicidal killer, and he's developed an almost (or not so almost) sick obsession with Rodney. And poor Rodney being so starved for positive attention, he started falling for the "dangerous soldier" routine. Not good, my friend. Not good at all. Our favorite astrophysicist is skirting a full-blown reakdown if he doesn't work any of this out soon. And I sure as hell hope that John brought along a few extra Marines to help guard Rodney in case this is a deliberately laid trap... which it of course stinks to high heaven as. Egads, I sure hope there's more soon! Love the complexity of the whole story. ----}-@ Krys

So I think it's a safe deduction that whomever shot McKay was intentionally aiming for him. This is a wonderfully intriguing tale. Well woven. ----}-@ Krys

*snicker* Yup, the one thing I loved about my cat was how she would just purr like a damn motor. One thing I hated was when she was pissed off she'd crap right outside her box. Damn I miss Milady. ----}-@ Krys
