I'm just a girl who likes her fandoms. I started out with HP and moved to SGA because I find Sheppard compelling. I write original fic, too. That's all.

Oh, bravo! Hot sex, deep angst, and all the hurt/comfort a girl could ever want. Plus, I LOVE the slot machine metaphor at the end of part II. Wonderful stuff! Thanks for writing!

Author's Response: Yeah, I was kind of pleased with the slot machine analogy too. Stange what strikes you as you drive home from work.

Very, very nicely done! I *love* your characterization of Rodney. Rodney is still Rodney--he thinks of himself first, and he's annoying and obnoxious and so...Rodney. It *really* works for this piece, too, because it serves to highlight the way John holds so much back, even his anger, impatience, fear... . Great work!

Author's Response: I'm really glad I was able keep Rodney in character. I also feel like John is holding back and this challenge gave me a great opportunity to explore one possiblity.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: "He didn't think he'd ever forget the sound of that gunshot as it echoed through the forest, startling birds from their roosts and causing John to crash to his knees in horror, his stomach clenching and threatening to double him over. He didn't know how long he knelt like that; trying to catch his breath and imagining the way Rodney's brains would be decorating the forest floor." Special thanks go to Becca, for without her this wouldn't have ever been finished! Extra betas by lillyjk, saffronra and jeanstarwind. Thank you girlies :)

Never let it be said that you are not a master of suspense. This story is taut with it, and leaves a tight feeling in the region of one's heart as we wait to discover what really happened, what the truth is about McKay's status. Excellently and brilliantly done, no punches pulled on the excruciating details of cruelty. Bravo!

Author's Response: I do like to tease, thank you :) x

The ending made me say, "Oh," out loud. Wow. The imagery in this piece is exquisite, truly. Write more, please!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad the imagery worked for you - I was trying to create a kind of surreal tone. I'm definitely writing more SGA. *g*

This is a really neat idea, and you do it delightful justice, particularly in its appeareance as Elizabeth and then as Ford. That last is a very nice, poignant touch, by the way. Bravo!

Author's Response: Thank you! I liked Ford as a character, so it was exciting to use him in the story.

Very nice. Takes care of that shot the writers made at we slash fanfiction writers about John "not noticing" the Chancellor because he's a guy. The subtext is *so* clear, and you do a wonderful job of...ahem...fleshing it out here. Bravo!
Chapter 1: Volatile

Summary: Everyone has a breaking point. In the midst of the siege of Atlantis, Elizabeth couldn't afford to break. So, she forgot... First two chapters "G". Rating for part three.

I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed the story as a whole, but it was the second part that I found especially powerful, moving, and poignant. Thank you for writing! Bravo!

Author's Response: Thank you! Parts 1& 2 came as a matched pair, then part 3 arrived by itself. I realised that I hadn't written Elizabeth at all and wanted to have a go. This happened. :)

Nicely warm, happily sap-less smut of the "aliens made them do it" vein. I like the idea of a sort of alien broom closet, too! Thanks for writing!

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words! I'm so glad you liked it. "I like the idea of a sort of alien broom closet, too!" Hee, that's one way to get them to come out of the closet. :)

What's especially great about this story is that the reader starts out figuring Rodney's the victim, and then it slowly becomes apparent that John has been injured in some way, and only after slow unfolding do we discover the whole truth. You've taken an SGA fic chestnut--"aliens made them do it"--and approached it in a thoughtful, careful way, and I love it! Bravo!

Author's Response: Thanks! As I set this post-hive, I knew that people would focus in on what happened with Rodney, so I wanted to build up the mystery about what happened with Sheppard. I'm glad you liked it.

I think the multiple POVs are just fine and work well for the story. I especially appreciated the epilogue; thanks for giving Zelenka a voice here. I like, too, the sort of "Johnny Mnemonic" spin you give to the way Rodney interfaces with Atlantis. Thanks for writing!

Author's Response: heh. you know, i haven't watched that movie in years, but now you mention it... should've added a dolphin. ;)

Is "Guh!" a sufficient enough review? *grins* This was hot, with as many t's as you'd like to put there. Yum. Great use of taste imagery, lovely setting, too!

Excellent! I usually don't read gen and I usually don't read anything below an R-rating, but your summary intrigued me and I'm so glad that I broke my own rules! This was marvelously plotted, entirely enjoyable, and delightful in how credibly everyone was characterized. This could be an actual episode! Bravo!
