Holy shit! great great great story, especially about the balance stuff. strong OCs. great idea. more please? pretty please?

Author's Response: There is an hour between midnight and dawn when I can catch those stories. Sometimes I can see them and sometimes I can’t. I wish I could see Al again - I miss him. Did you see ‘Allies’? I saw only the stills - Al looks almost exactly (he is lighter) like the creature that was strapped to the bed. I nearly got sick. What is OC?

OC = Own Character i miss Al too - already! maybe a follow-up where the gang finds Old One's Child?

Author's Response: I’ll try. I know, what happened to the Child. I know, why the Old Boy think him dead. I don’t know how to write about it. There are things that terrorize me even to think about them.

Summary: The first time Rodney affectionately touched me in public, I was so astonished that he was five insults into the conversation before I was able to catch up.

aaangst! (grins) but Rodney sounds just a wee bit too self absorbed - has he subconsiously figured it out?

Author's Response: Rodney's a genius! Wha? What was the question? :) Stick around and you'll see.

Author's Response: Hi, nim the cat! I'm glad you're enjoying it so far! I have my notes for Chapter 4, but I'm going to skip over to That Sinking Feeling to finish Chapter 6 first. Hopefully, I won't leave you hanging for long! Thanks for the review! JJ
Chapter 1: One
Fragment by lillyjk [NC-17]
[Reviews - 11]

Summary: written for the coldestmonth challenge over on livejournal and um, I guess I went with the cold shoulder. angst ahead. in case it's not clear, the portions in italics are flashbacks. --- "I appreciate the effort but we both knew it was just a matter of time." He flexed his hands against the metal railing, hissing at the contact of hot metal against his skin. "Frankly I'm surprised it lasted this long."

ohgodohgodohgod...now it's time for somebody else make a play for Rodney - and Rodney emphatically not going back to john

Author's Response: hmm. Maybe you should read my Somebody Else series...it's all about Rodney moving on and John regretting it. of course, it's up to ten chapters now and still not finished *sigh*

why can you write such great original characters and i can't? why? waaahhhh!

Author's Response: Thank you. Don't write them - look for them. ‘Looking’ has one great minus though - I cannot change what those guys do or say. They are very much independent.

WTH???? but: "Never thought that being a Wraith was a sexually-transmitted disease…” great, GREAT sentence. quote-worthy, in fact :-)

Author's Response: What is WTH? Sorry - poor foreigner. It took me quite a while to figure out what LOL is. Save for ROFL.

Author's Response: Never mind - found it. Is it good or bad, that is the question.

Bloody brilliant, on so many levels there is no place to discuss them. Mouse was turning into an annoying Mary sue, until you turned the story on her and showed her other side - like a kid: "but I didn't wanna break it!" Of course she didn't understand John - she was a worse hypocrate than she accused everybody else to be! But... what was going on with Carson...?

Author's Response: Unfortunately this story is not over. Carson is turning into non-Al type of Wraithling (those who serve in ERD). You think the Old Boy would risk his bony ass for nothing coming into such yucky place as city of A? Mouse is Shep’s ‘reflection in the tar pit’ - all the same, all the opposite. Hypocrisy is not her main feature - selfishness is. But she almost died as a child after she saw frozen hedgehog (somebody disturbed its sleep, it got out its hole and froze to death), while Sheppard would gladly enjoy the site of dying being. Genetics is a powerful force...

tomato, tomahto. she accuses John and the others of doing bad stuff, but thinks it's OK for her to commit genocide (as Chris told them). What's ERD?

Author's Response: 1. ERD - External Relations Department. Those very guys who maintain the balance in Pegasus Galaxy. More Wraith-like part of the Old One’s people population. 2. Mouse does not think it’s OK. Or good. Or whatever. She thinks it would be ‘safer’ (which might or might not be true) for people not to have around the population which after the event in question ran to the streets, cutting goat’s throats and celebrating the death of a bunch of the young girls (for no one else was there - no government representatives, no army, no ‘rich people’, etc.)- perfect victory. However those are adult issues, it is hardly appropriate to discuss them on the site which is visited by children. Please E-mail me if you want to discuss it any further. 3. Don’t you see: Mouse is not cute and has nasty temper. Sheppard is cute and likable. They would do exactly the same thing, and one of them will be pardoned by the general public, and the other will not. 4. Investigated MS issue. Pony Tail is Mary Sue, not Mouse. He is the only character in this story who doesn’t have a human prototype. His prototype is my Subaru.
Chapter 1: Chapter I

Summary: The real John's about as far from a hero as you can get. In fact, he's a demon.

There isn't anything i could add to the other reviews. the idea that the AI isn't necessarily benign was a great change, and john's confession that elizabeth was right and - in part - vindicating her actions was very moving.

rolling on the floor, honestly. "Having said that, I would trade all my worldly possessions for a chocolate powerbar right now." My God, ninja!Rodney is still Rodney!

Author's Response: He can save the city, win at Solitaire, consume coffee and chocolate like a competitive sport *and* kill a man nine different ways. Still our Rodney.
