That was a marvelous story. I think that I originally caught it before it was finished, because I remember stopping at the alternate male Carter cliffhanger. Such complications. I'm amazed that you were able to work with so many alternate universes and have them be so interesting and intriguing. I am a little sad with the ending and that Rodney was still in love with alternate John. How nice that this John was so sweet & willing to start a relationship. Hoping that Rodney would be in love with this John very very soon.

Author's Response: I'm glad you decided to take another look and find more story! thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it. wags, springwoof

Love this story. I must admit that my mind is stuck on the picture of John all sweaty, having run directly to where Rodney has gone to see Steve...

Author's Response: Thank you...and yes...I loved that image too :-)

Poor Rodney, back where he started from. Hope that RL is going well, so that things will improve for Rodney.

Author's Response: RL is still crazy but, hopefully, things will be getting better for Rodney and the team.

Thanks for finishing your story! I remember reading your story earlier before it was finished. It's the kind of story that makes my chest clench up even after the story is done. Poor Rodney & poor people at Atlantis. Glad that the boys finally made up and that the other relationships will heal up also. The SGA writers do annoy me horribly. My daughter has to listen to me rant about how angry I am at them & she tries to sooth me & have me think calm thoughts.

Author's Response: It never occured to me when I started writing that angst or h/c would be how most of my stories turned out. I\'m just glad I could make it a kind of happy ending as I had no idea how it would end until the last chapter kind of wrote itself. As for the writers, sometimes I really have to wonder what they were thinking. But then, there\'s always slash to fix things! LOL

Hi, I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your crossover very much. It was a good blend of the science fiction elements and the magical. You've made a nice universe. It was nice to read a good story featuring Carson. I liked a lot of your scenes, esp. the Patronus/Wraith ones, and Rodney's finally being able to summon a Patronus. Very nice. I'll look forward to seeing other stories in this universe. Thanks for writing it.

Hi, liked your story very much. Free will is nice, but it would also be comforting to know that you have a place in the universe that is waiting for you specifically. Sweet and a little kinky. Hmm, if only all of our energy problems could be solved that way.

Author's Response: Thanks for your feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the story :-). As for it being a little kinky - yeah, somehow a lot of my fics end up that way *g*.

I loved this story. It has great pacing and I enjoyed all of the details of their pasts being revealed as their relationship developed. Everything (episode events, details about life on Atlantis) was incorporated so well. Just wonderful.

Author's Response: Thanks you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

I wanted to tell you that I really like this series. This AU would be very hard on the poor Atlantis people, but it's very nice seeing the SG1 people working so well with them (much nicer in your stories than in canon). I was rather fond of Bates, even though his role usually seemed to be someone to hate, so I'm glad that you have him here. I hope that you'll update soon, since you've left John in a tight angsty spot! I really like the way that you have the characters interacting, you do that very well.

Hi, I loved this story from when I first read it, but I think that I read it back when I was afraid to give feedback. You deserve a lot more reviews for this story -- it's great! Love John teaching Rodney, Rodney learning well, the scientists afraid of Rodney toting a gun, how John & Rodney help each other when Pegasus gets to be too much, the betting with Bates (how it escalated, and that Rodney did not fold under pressure), the final but scary scene in the armory. All excellent. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Never be afraid to give feedback - I\'ve never met a writer who didn\'t like to hear from a reader. I\'m even okay with critical feedback, and you can always find me on Livejournal as laceymcbain.

Great story, nice slow buildup. Very sweet and hormonal at the same time. I liked that Rodney was trying to blame his lab furniture for his predicament. Thanks.

Author's Response: I'm glad the lab furniture bit worked for you. That was a last minute addition in response to some criticism from rache. Thank you for the feedback.

Chapter 1: Lesser Homes and Gardens

Summary: AU - John Sheppard is High Lord of the Planet Leiath in the Pegasus Galaxy. Rodney's away team gets captured by John's soldiers. Started out as an attempt to write EVIL John Sheppard but it came out more like completely non-evil, but snarky, John Sheppard.

Yay! Great story & so funny. It was great how John had such good intentions about how he was going to handle prisoner Rodney, but couldn't help but get sucked in like quicksand. I'm looking forward to your sequel. Thanks.
Chapter 4: Evil Overlord Sheppard - FOUR

Summary: The last time Rodney had been back to Earth, he'd picked up a disgustingly vast selection of movies and television on DVD, figuring that maybe he'd find something John was interested in and at the very least he'd have goods for trade on the Atlantis black market.

Hi, I liked your story. Nice way of dealing with why they weren't involved before (taking each other out of the running). And just having people hear the rank of the kissee, then speculating wildly, makes a good plot point. Sweet story. Thanks.

Author's Response: So glad you enjoyed it. It's always fun to play with people taking things out of context ... rumours can lead to interesting places.
Chapter 1: 1 of 1

Summary: John Sheppard is determined to bring to ruin the villainous McKay family. But young (ok, youngish) Rodney interferes with his plans. Okay, so this is what comes of reading the Harlequin SGA website which triggers memories of reading a thousand Regency/Historical novels as an impressionable youngster (**eek**, no wonder I'm twisted). The result is this complete and utter cliche **heh**. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of any of the historical/british terms and settings depicted in this story. They are from my fuzzy memory of romance novels. Nuff said.

You hit all the right notes with your plot, and the way the characters act within the Regency setting. It all feels just right. I like it very much. Looking forward to more (but not looking forward to when it ends!)

Author's Response: I'm behind on responding to reviews but thank you so much for taking the time to write. I'm glad you're enjoying it :)

Yes, yes! Happy to see another part up. Very happy that Rodney got to punch out Kavanaugh. Will be sad to see this story end, but will be happy to see you continue with a supplementary story, if you want to. Hmm, will Jeannie be old enough to get involved with anyone by then?

Author's Response: Thanks for writing :) I'm glad you liked it. Yes, Rodney had to have his chance at Kavanagh. Hmm, maybe Lt. Ford could visit his old commanding officer...
Chapter 17: 17 - Endings

Summary: Jack knew that stepping through the gate changed his life, but he didn't think one more time would make that much a difference; he was wrong. Now, Jack O'Neill, John Sheppard and Rodney McKay are intertwined in an adventure of a lifetime, starting with how the hell to get back to being a grownup. (Sheppard/McKay/O'Neill) [Rating for later chapters when characters are of legal age.]
