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. :)

Author's Response: Hopefully this will get wrapped up soon, but not without a tangent here and there regarding the poor, poor Bates and his unfortunate attachment to Kavanagh. Thanks for all your wonderful feedback.

Oh, HOWL!!!!! ROTFLMFAO Ah, Monsieur de Fehrn, you are an exquisite pain in the ass. Rodney is too, but I think he'd be oh so much more fun trading barbs with Darien, Bobby and Claire, don't you? *snicker* Hello, my fellow IManiac! Wonderful job with this fic! Just the thought of Rodney playing with his food like a 5 year old, and then Arnaud blithely joining in makes me laugh so hard I'm about to pee myself. *kicking weakly and still laughing hysterically* Thanks! ----}-@ Krys

God, when is there gonna be more to this? I friggin love this story. You've been doing a spectacular job of portraying the internal conflict of both John and Rodney, and the hopelessness one feels when one's that deep into depression. More soon? ----}-@ Krys

Author's Response: Just as soon as my profs stop monopolizing my time. Unfortunately I have many projects to get done before I can play but I'll see what I can do. And thank you - I strive for realism with some stories and this was one that I just don't want to stray from reality with.
