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.

Summary: I dream of Rodney? John Sheppard just wanted to buy pie from Mennonites during his forced time off for "psychological reasons". He didn't want to buy a guy in a bottle. This story merges with SG-1.

I love the little detail about Rodney and Jeannie being barefoot. I also love this story! I'm eager for more.

Author's Response: Thank you!
Chapter 5: 05

Summary: "I'm damned tired of aliens taking over my body," Sheppard told Sam. "How the hell has nobody noticed that you're not me?" Crossover of SGA/Quantum Leap, originally written for the Stargate Leap 2006 Ficathon. The prompt was from Miriel, who wanted "Location - Pegasus Galaxy, not Atlantis. Sam Leaps into Sheppard, pairing McKay/Sheppard. Special Request: Sam recognizes McKay from meeting him in person."

I watched nearly all of 'Quantum Leap', although I'm not a fan of it; and I don't care for SGA/QL crossovers; but I read this because you wrote it, and "oh boy", am I glad I did! I enjoyed this tremendously.

Author's Response: Wow! you flatter me so much! thank you for the very lovely comment...

I had to stop reading this several paragraphs in, when I realized that this story must be set after the season 3 episode 'Tao of Rodney', which I have not yet seen since SciFi channel won't be showing the second half of season 3 until April. A spoiler warning would have been nice.

Author's Response: I do apologise. As the one line is the only mention related to the episode, and the episodes have been aired in Canada, it was a simple mistake. I'll be sure to go rectify that. Thank you for letting me know. I do apologise again.
Chapter 1: 1/2

Summary: Everyone wants John. No, really. Written for 60_minute_fics fandom frenzy prompt, which was a contest to referemce as many other fandoms in a fic as one could. I have 27 fandoms, taken mostly from the list at Ship_Manifesto. Needless to say, this is utter crack.

This is a lovely story. I really like the idea that Rodney would blurt out totally unconnected thoughts during sex...including something as sweet and loving, yet inappropriate to their circumstances, as "would you marry me?"

Author's Response: Oh yeah, I fully expect that he's said some very sweet things during sex. I bet John's actually had to learn how to deal with everything from seriously dirty talk to complete mush to non sequiturs by the ton... he might not be as taken aback as Rodney's guessing. :) Thanks for the comment!

Wow, really exciting and intriguing story. This makes me want to see Torchwood in the worst way. You've invented some interesting backstory, too - have you thought about writing Rodney's experiences with the Toronto Torchwood branch?

Flipping hell...why is it that making do with what they have on hand is so much hotter than having actual toys? And I really appreciate the lack of pet sex names in this - it makes it ring so much more true. Altogether, excellent and smoking hot.

A decaying small town with a dark secret, in the best Lovecraftian tradition...plus Daniel Jackson and the incomparable (literally!) Rodney McKay...I knew Chatsworth would never be the same again! I enjoyed this story so much. I went to bed directly after reading it and slept like a log. Thank you!

Author's Response: I'm laughing! Glad to be such an effective sleep aid! I tend towards insomnia, too, and am always very glad for a good night's sleep.

Very sweet story. I like the logical progression from blanket forts to John cuddling up with his mother while sick, to cuddling with girlfriends, lovers, then Rodney - who is eminently cuddle-able. I think I vaguely recall the Homer Price books - something about watching a donut-making machine through a plate glass window?
