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: How much pressure can you take? How much are you made of until the fire's all gone and you're just burnt out?
Well, apparently, all you have to do is blow up a solar system.

Kavanagh is a Keeper! That actually would explain his attitude. And I love the bit about 'McKay wouldn't talk to anything that couldn't understand him'. LOL! You really should write the events that lead up to this.

I finally got around to reading chapters 3 and 4...and all I can say is, as usual, this story is fantastic. I really enjoyed Cube, and so far you've recreated the sense of fear, anxiety, and the feeling of being trapped just as well as that film did. At least I know you won't kill off Rodney and Carson...well, I hope you won't kill them off!

Author's Response: Nah . . . although maybe . . . *thinks about it* Nah . . . although . . .

This story is *brilliant*. I keep checking back to see if there's any more to read yet. The fear of what the memory device might do to McKay was scary enough...the concept that *everything* that he is, is now recorded onto the crystal is horrifying. Just...wow.

Author's Response: Exactly, that's just it. With all of them being so concerned with the side-effects, they never considered the main effect itself. Thank you so much!

Oh jeez, what a place to stop. This story is addictive, I keep checking for an update. I really like the way you've written Midran and his different view on the morality of the memory copying/reading process. Excellent.

Author's Response: Thanks - - good to hear that I've got you hooked. I really enjoy writing the cultural interplay and it's great to know that it isn't boring.
Chapter 7: Chapter Seven
Reviewer: Ellex (Signed)

Wow, I can't believe the end of the story is here...but it's a perfect ending. The thought of Sheppard waking up and *being* McKay is intriguing, and scary, and almost incomprehensible. I like the quietness of this ending, too. The entire story is one of the most amazing and unique things I've ever read, and well worth the wait for the final chapters. Now I have to go back and reread it from the beginning, which is a very enjoyable prospect. This one is definitely going on my rec list.

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you caught (and liked, of course) the bit about Sheppard *being* McKay when he woke up - - it was a throwaway detail, but I'd hoped that it would have that kind of impact. Thanks so much for reading!

Your basic writing style is good, and I like your descriptions...but the plot is really confusing. I have to say that I have no idea what was happening, or how the flashback fit in, or what any of the characters were talking about.

Mesmerizing. I love the fractured timeline of the story, the descriptions of the Night People, the slow and subtle explication of exactly what happened to Rodney. I'm so pleased to see you back in fandom - and in Atlantis fandom!

Author's Response: Oh, good -- so glad the backward story-telling worked for you
Chapter 1: Part 1 of 1

Summary: This scene is an outtake from a version of "A Little Bit Crazy" that didn't get written, as mentioned in my DVD style commentary of the fic. So I consider it an AU outtake. Which is another way of saying it's a porny little PWP that I indulged myself by writing.

I finally got caught up on this story. I'm so glad you've continued it - it's tremendously exciting. I'm eager to find out what happens next.

Author's Response: Thanks! I have to admit it's been rather tough to write. "Action" plots are not something I'm used to doing. But that only means I need to do more of them!
Chapter 13: Chapter Thirteen

Summary: John Sheppard is determined to bring to ruin the villainous McKay family. But young (ok, youngish) Rodney interferes with his plans. Okay, so this is what comes of reading the Harlequin SGA website which triggers memories of reading a thousand Regency/Historical novels as an impressionable youngster (**eek**, no wonder I'm twisted). The result is this complete and utter cliche **heh**. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of any of the historical/british terms and settings depicted in this story. They are from my fuzzy memory of romance novels. Nuff said.

This was a truly remarkable story. I felt almost as broken as poor Rodney by the time I was about halfway through. I have to congratulate you on bringing me so close to understanding two POV's that are so alien to my own. Also, thank you so much for your kind words regarding my own story.
