If you're interested, I write gen and slash stories. Some are humorous, some are serious, some are sexy, kinky, smarmy, angsty, silly, scary, and sometimes just nice.

Someday I'll probably write het as well, but that day is not today.

I love Rodney McKay, and it shows in my work. I also love the dynamic between McKay and Sheppard, so I tend to focus on those two, but other characters do come to the front from time to time.

I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.

This is really an incredible story. I'm so glad you've come back to it. I'm hooked...completely and utterly hooked.

Author's Response: Thank you! :D I'm glad I have stuck with it too, because even though it's hard to write, it's been worth it. Sad as that sounds. LOL. Thanks again.

This is such a great story, I find myself looking for a new chapter frequently. It's *so* different from the other SGA fic out there. Keep it up...I definitely want more.

Author's Response: Thank you! I like going against the grain some times and writing what others would just scoff at.

This whole fic just keeps getting better and better. I esp. like the description of the shower. The scene with Rudgers was interesting. Love John kissing Rodney's hair!

Author's Response: Thank you! The showers were my favorite to come up with. *g* I know it was kinda in a different direction, the whole Rudgers-Cabrian thing, but I have use for it so I'm glad it was okay. And John kissing Rodney's hair was just this perfect picture in my head, I had to put it in. I think it's the best part of the story. Thank you again.
Chapter 11: Spun Intangible

Summary: Someone, long ago, put out a request for a kidfic. I being stupid, took a stab at it. Did I mention that I'm not a squishy kind of person. What has resulted is the anti-kidfic.

You've done an incredible job of cleaning and tightening up a fic that was already fabulous. I laughed so hard my stomach still hurts. I'll be back to read this again...and again...and again...

Your "proto-Wraith" is incredibly squicky...I love it! This is a fabulous concept, easily the best continuation of "38 Minutes" I've read. Your descriptions are so real, I felt I could see and hear the entire story in my mind. Would you have any objections to my using the "proto-Wraith" (don't know what else to call it) in my own fics?

Author's Response: I would love it if you used the "proto-wraith" in a story. I'm always happy to see stuff grow beyond my own concepts (if you want to see this idea of collaborative extrapolation in action, you might stop by the pegasus_b community in livejournal--where dozens of writers are building an Atlantis AU using this very idea of extrapolating from a story). And I'm squicky about that proto-wraith, too. I'd love to see how you could develop it. :)

I'm enjoying this fic and I'm eager to see where it goes. Keep writing, please!

Author's Response: Thanks for the feedback! Part three will be posted as soon as it hits my inbox on it's way back from my beta :o)

Summary: This is hopefully going to be a series of short pieces which deal with everyone on Atlantis trying to deal with the stresses of Sheppard/Beckett/McKay children. And the conspiracy to get their parents together. Also I'll be creating connected back stories for several characters.

Well, if you're going to do a male-preg story, this is a good way: make it funny as hell! Good job. The dialogue gets a little confusing at the end, though - it's hard to tell who says what.
Chapter 1: My brother the Psychic (Zelenka's POV)

Summary: He's the one who swore they should be careful with Ancient technology.
Other warning: This is group sex in the gate room fic. As in an orgy. There is slash and het but the focus is on slash. And it will be continued in several chapters.

I'm reading this at work, on the sly, at lunchtime...which was the *wrong* thing to do! That said, this is *scorchingly* hot, and such a change from "Thirty-six", it's hard to believe they were written by the same person. Great work! And I hope you'll do it again sometime.

Author's Response: OOoo, rebel! Thank you and after I complete some of the Thirty-Six sequel, I do plan on writing some more fic like this. >:)

I'm so glad you're continuing this. "Thirty-six" sucked me in from the beginning and has never let me go. The little hints you give out about the backstory are driving me *nuts*. More, please, please!

Author's Response: :) Thanks! I'm working on the next chapter and that will hopefully get done soon.

More? There's more? Hooray! This is going so well, so much angst. I still love the story from two different POV's, and now combined with memories/flashbacks. And someone says you weren't going to write any more fic? NO! You *must* write. Absolutely *must*.

Author's Response: I have a page from some-one else's POV, but am pondering it. Real life is about to invade my writing in a major way.

The Ford POV is *perfect*. Very accurately his voice and at the same time simply heartbreaking. I love that in the last chapter I wasn't sure for most of it whose POV it was. RL sucks bigtime...I know. So write more, it's good for you. Good for your audience, too!

Fabu! I wish I'd thought of it first, but it's a great idea that the guys would experience a bit of culture shock coming back to Earth. And so sweet that they don't quite know what to do with themselves, especially without each other along. Also great that John automatically thinks of Atlantis as home. Wonderful fic!

Author's Response: "And so sweet that they don't quite know what to do with themselves, especially without each other along. " Yes, that's exactly what I was trying to get across. I'm glad it worked!

LOL, that's hysterical! I love the online handles you chose. And the RoundRobin was almost embarrassing to read! Too perfect. I think I'll have to go find your SG-1 series now.

Author's Response: Thank you! It's always nice to know I've made someone laugh. The Round Robin was me writing ship on a very, very bad day, especially Carson's part. If you are interested, the Sg-1 stories are all on my website (URL in my author details). Thanks for commenting. :-)

This is incredibly hot...and a nice use of an often unnoticed character. I love the contrast between McKay's bossy public facade and his almost timid bedroom persona.

Author's Response: Thank you. Major Davis is shamefully underutilised in fanfic, lol, not that I am biased of course.
