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.

Very sweet. Your description makes me want to visit a county fair - which is interesting because I detest them!

Author's Response: *snicker* Hi, sweetheart! *waves* I love county fairs, if for nothing else but the food. *drools* I based the one in the story on the Montgomery County fair here in Maryland, since it\'s in my town. Damn, I\'ve been munchy for fried Oreos for weeks now! ;) Thanks for the review love, honey. *hugs* -----}-@

This was amazing. The scene with the bugs will have me scratching for daysm and Rodney's pleas for rescue were simply heart-rending. I love McKay's huge confrontation where he spells out to everyone just how their mistakes have been forgiven while his have not.

This story is so very satisfying on a very visceral level. You had me close to tears in sympathy for Rodney, and that's quite an achievement.

Author's Response: Thank you very, very much! I\'m glad I managed to make you happy. Close to tears *is* happy, isn\'t it?;-) Anyway, thanks!
Chapter 1: Part 1

Summary: The Ancients' genes didn't just confer the power to activate their technology. For ten percent of Earth's population, like John Sheppard, the ATA gene also gave them Gifts: special abilities that made them admired, envied, and feared.

Sheppard was a Charmer, one of the feared ones, whose particular Gift let him create faith whenever he needed to be trusted or believed. But Sheppard didn't trust himself not to destroy what he loved most. And somewhere along the line, amid the terror and chaos of the Expedition's first year in the Pegasus Galaxy, what Sheppard loved most had become Rodney McKay.

McKay didn't trust anyone. As soon as you started trusting people, you started counting on them, depending on them, and that was when you became vulnerable. And vulnerable things didn't survive. So just when, exactly, had he started trusting Sheppard?

And what was going to happen, now that he did?

This story is so fabulous, I read it in one sitting, positively glued to the screen. You two make a great team.

I love the pictures, too - the one in the middle is so full of longing and despair, and the one at the end made me laugh. Well, Sheppard's chest made me laugh! And the glimpse of Ronon in the background is too cute!

Author's Response: Hey, Ellex! Thank you! Aren\'t the pictures great? Brevisse (thought I doubt I spelled her name right) did a wonderful job, as did Summertea with the cover. Your comments were wonderful--I really like your stuff, so it\'s a special pleasure for me that you enjoyed this so much. :D Leah

Also, I think you mean "paragon" rather than "paradigm". :->

Oh, Haggy. Oh...that was just lovely. I know what you mean about that poem - on the one hand I want to say 'never give up, never give in'. On the other hand...sometimes you want people to be able to go in peace and with dignity. It's a tough choice, and you wrote about it with such understanding and eloquence.
