Season one spoilers.

Very cute. I hope that Rodney won't be missing the cat version of John too much, when it happens.
Chapter 1: Prologue- How it all Began
"Colonel John Sheppard knew, from the moment he first met Dr Rodney McKay, that the man would be trouble."
This novel-length story is set entirely in an AU where bisexuality and consensual BDSM are the cultural norm. It is a prequel to my story "General & Dr Sheppard" but you don't have to have read that to read this.

Not the usual sort of story that I search out (other than John/Rodney), but it's a very interesting story in an interesting universe. Poor poor Rodney though, until the time that John takes him on.
Author's Response: Yes poor Rodney. I'm glad you enjoyed the story :-)
Chapter 1: Chapter One - Trouble With a Capital 'T'
It all started as a mission to trade for Ancient tech that went wrong. John and Rodney are on the run from natives that believe in human sacrifice, and there are complications: John's been shot and Rodney has amnesia!

I was pulled into your story when I saw the summary note about Rodney having amnesia. It was different and intriging the way that you had it develop, and the constant loss of short-term memory would be scarier and more frightening to deal with than "normal" amnesia. Liked your story very much. Thanks for doing.
Chapter 1: A Day to Forget
Rodney never believed in fortune telling... until he met John. Stargate AU.

Tricky of you. Looking forward to the actual J/R meeting and more to your story. Thanks.

Loved this, very sweet. It was great the way that Rodney worked through what John was mumbling into his shoulder & then told him that he already knew that.
Chapter 1: That Time When John Wanted To Talk About His Feelings
"Had you began practicing when you were young," Teyla told Sheppard, "you would possess near mastery of the form." (pairing is incidental to the story)

Nice. Gives a different perspective to life in Pegasus; good to see some peaceful happy moments. Interesting thought about the fostering. Teyla definitely deserves some time to recharge (get her groove back?).
Author's Response: I\'m so late replying - my apologies. Teyla definitely deserves time to recharge and remember the things and people she\'s fighting for. I love the thought of her having a good time, and I\'m glad you did too.
When John was in kindergarten, he made up an imaginary friend. Thirty years later he realizes that his friend wasn't so made up after all.

Very nice story. I hope that I like the ending as much as I've liked the parts. Good dialog; liked the "imaginary friend" Rodney dialog very much, since we know enough to fill in the blanks. Liked the coin flip choices.
Author's Response: Oh, I hope you do too. It should be approved soon. *crosses fingers* Thank you (for both reviews)!
Chapter 2: One Hell of A Coincidence
Awww, poor John. Although it was very cute the way that he coaxed Atlantis into letting him eavesdrop. John has been very patient - I hope that his patience will be rewarded...
Chapter 3: Not Quite on the Same Page
Spoilers for Grace Under Pressure. "I could have had Sam Carter."
Updated: 16 Dec 2006; Published: 12 Dec 2006
Well, I would have to agree that I was a little dissatisfied with part 3, but I wanted to say that I really liked parts 1 and 2. Liked John being down there instead of Sam, and then very much liked that it was real and that John actually went through the experience with Rodney.
Author's Response: Thanks! I know the third part isn't very popular with everyone who liked the first two, but I'm glad you liked the story regardless. So again-- thanks!

Very nice & sweet. I like Eldon being in the story too!
Author's Response: Thanks! Eldon is a great character, and I loved having a chance to play with him.
Chapter 1: Androdioecious
That was the big one, echoing through his brain, bouncing from one part of his skull to the other.
He'd possibly freaked out a little, okay maybe more than a little, because Rodney
was the calm and cool voice offering reasonable statistics about radiation
and there was something really fucked up about that.

So wonderful... So did the night shift nurses like John as a patient because he was so quiet, or were they getting a sneak preview of the coolest superpower that ever was? Would have been a great superhero for "Whose line..." people.
Summary: The first time Rod told his Sheppard where he could stick his MENSA meetings, it was both frightening and exhilarating.
Updated: 24 Jan 2007; Published: 24 Jan 2007
Awww, poor Sheppard. Yes, having a theory after you should have been a sign for Rod. Nice, thanks for doing.
Author's Response: I guess even a genius can be kind of dumb. ;)
The realization hit him fairly quickly at that point, he was sitting with the outcasts. The loners who weren't quite loners, but were never going to be a part of the clumps and groups and easily labeled segments of their peers. Sheppard smiled to himself. He was sitting with the future leaders of Atlantis.

Very cute. Nice to see them all as a group of good friends who belong together.
Funny that John's the one who has the anxieties and worries, while his friends know him so well & calm him down.
Author's Response: Hee! Thanks =) I'm glad you liked it!
A midnight Jumper ride on New Year's Eve. Set directly after Grace Under Pressure. Can be read as a sort of sequel to my story, Guardian, if you squint. Guardian doesn't need to be read to read this fic, though.

I liked this very much, but I have one quibble about Rodney where he says that he needs to lose weight because he's running after you Amazons. That would work if he's only talking about Teyla, because Amazons were female warriors. That's my only nitpick, that's a great story for a new year.
He'd learned over the course of several missions that if McKay could complain he was mostly fine and wow, had Rodney really put his heart into complaining then. John had tucked away some of the more colorful curses for later use; it would be a crime to waste such spectacular filth.

Nice. Rodney should be able to be a creative swearer.
Summary: The market's a busy, sprawling, country sort of thing, but John Sheppard is the centre of attention. He's running a stall of what looks like everything and nothing, bright and incongruous in the midst of farmers dressed in a hundred shades of brown

Liked this very much. Rodney becoming so close to John & missing that part of him, but getting the Colonel in return.
When Earth became indifferent to them, Atlantis and the people who loved her looked for ways to make things work. And then Earth tried to change the rules.
Thanks to Miriel and Nei'chan for help and beta services.

Interesting concept, and overall very believable that Atlantis could be overlooked & ignored when administration changes. I like seeing the younger O'Neil & Jackson & look forward to seeing how they work out in Atlantis.
Author's Response: The thing is, they are getting ignored both on purpose and by accident. And finding out who is doing it, that is the fun part!
Chapter 4: Chapter 4 - Settling In
Rodney remembers slamming his hand in a car door when he was six; he remembers the pain like it only happened yesterday, and he'll never forget how much he screamed, how he closed his eyes and convinced himself that he'd lost his hand and broken his dinosaur.
Updated: 08 Feb 2007; Published: 07 Feb 2007
Oh, very good. Loved how Rodney describes how events are appearing to him, and how he's unable to speak. I think that this is how it would really be. Glad for the ending.

Very interesting world. At least you'd probably never be lonely there (very tired, though).
After John is badly wounded while serving in Somalia, he and Rodney have to learn how to make a serious physical disability a part of their lives.

Hello, beautiful story. I had started reading it when you first wrote it, but somehow lost track, because I'm an idiot. Found it again because I've been reading more of your recent stories & wanted to look over your past stories. It's a powerful story, I appreciate all of the details & difficulties that you wrote about John's adjustments to his new life. I love, love the last chapter with Rodney being some completely clueless about Mike Landon (why Sam Brumby?) and the later proposal. Thanks for writing!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m so glad you enjoyed the story and found it realistic. I\'m embarrassed to say that I never realized that the name \'Mike Landon\' actually belongs to somebody. I must have read his name somewhere and the name stuck. When I was searching for a name to use, I just grabbed this one out of my head and put it down. Yes, my mind is funny that way.
