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.

This is a great story, particularly because of the fine balance between hurt/comfort and hot sex. I love the shy sweetness of it, too. Bravo!
Chapter 1: Unanticipated Outcomes

Summary: Inspired by this picture of a very young DH, and yen for young, slutty McKay stories. Set at least a year after the end of S2, when Atlantis has lost contact with Earth again. Action, adventure, strange customs, no character death, I promise.

Wow! I really, really liked the confident sex-kitten!Rodney and the way it made Sheppard uncertain. That's not a combination of characteristics you expect in this pairing, but it works exceptionally well in your story. Thanks for writing!

Wow. This is intense and incredible! I am especially impressed with the complex characterization of Ronon, and I love voyeur!John, especially in this context. Bravo!

Author's Response: Thanks so much. Glad to hear the characters worked, especially Ronon. I haven't written a lot of Ronon, so I'll take this as encouragement to do more.

Beautiful, subtle, and powerful, this story balances on the fine line between angst and drama and manages never to fall. Bravo! I like how you get inside Rodney's head; this is a very, very credible version of him. Just excellent-thanks for writing!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! It's always good to hear I'm managing to balance that line - it's hard to know when you're writing if you're succeeding.

That made me laugh out loud--several times. And I heard Cam Mitchell's voice in my head throughout, so bravo to you for being dead-on!

Author's Response: Thank you. My first attempt at Cam -- and at SG-1, really.

Very nicely done, and I laughed out loud at the "Deus ex machina" comment. Thanks for an interesting and entertaining read!

Author's Response: I'm happy I made you laugh! I figured that since it was a cliche fic, I might as well go all out. *g* I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Bravo! Brilliantly done! I'm most impressed by how smoothly and quickly you set the stage, creating backstory that is detailed but not complicated, and explaining a great deal with relatively few words. I love the interplay between Aeryn and John and think it's just marvelously written. *claps wildly*

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm very glad you liked it!

Ah, payback *is* a bitch, ain't she. Lovely, lovely, lovely. You could choke on the irony, and I think it's simply marvelous. Bravo!

Author's Response: I'm a big fan of irony. Especially as a rebuke to thoughtless storytelling. I'm told that is kind of a depraved perspective, but I'm enjoying it. Thanks!

I very much enjoyed this interesting take on that fanfic classic, "Aliens Made Them Do It." In this case, they don't do it, in fact, and that's a lot to do with your spot-on characterization of John and the delicate balance between him and Rodney. Thanks for writing!

Oh, I *loved* this! This was fantastic! A great pairing, done just right, the exact voices of Mitchell and Sheppard. You kept their "guyness" intact, too, and it was just--wow. Wow! Bravo!
