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.

I have to tell you that I absolutely love this bit: "I’m not vearing anyting under my lab coat. Right, okay, just a second –I have to finish this calculation."

Author's Response: Thanks; I liked that too. For some reason the image of a sex-crazed Russian woman jumping Rodney amuses me. I'm glad you enjoyed reading this.

Well, it's taken me a long, long time to get around to reading this. It's a long, long story! I've started it a couple of times, but just couldn't stick with it, because it made me so sad.

But now I've finally finished it - in one sitting, no less! - and all I can really say is 'WOW'. What you two have created in this story is simply overwhelming and beautiful. I wish I were able to leave you a brilliant and detailed review, but this is going to take some time to really settle into my mind, so I'll just repeat: "WOW!!"

Author's Response: Well, thank you so much for sticking with it, Ellex! Especially as it made you sad. And thank you you so much for your wonderful comment. I\'m really pleased it moved you. Leah

The visuals in this are simply *amazing*. Well worth the wait for the next chapter - I had to read the story from the beginning again, and enjoyed it tremendously.

Author's Response: Sorry for the delay, but so glad to hear the story is holding up.
Chapter 3: Karloff Through the Stargate

Summary: John just looked at the other man, who in the cramped small-town tavern stuck out like a sore thumb with his black robe and pointy hat, and raised one of his brows. Rodney rolled his eyes. "Rodney McKay. Do I get your name, or would that obliterate the baffling veil of mystery you shroud yourself in?"

That was quite amazingly apropos. Not only a marvelous imitation of Pratchett's witty sensibility, but still true to Sheppard and McKay' characters. I love the idea of Sheppard as an assassin and McKay as a male witch. I bow to your brilliance.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! *blushes furiously* That means a lot, coming from you. :D

I read this the other day after finding a recommendation for it, and enjoyed it thoroughly. My first reaction was 'Rodney, a Sentinel?!', but after reading just a little bit, I realized that it was perfect casting. I'm glad you've posted this here, and I hope to see more soon.

Author's Response: I just couldn't see him as a guide.... Heee!

Oh my...I nearly dropped my pudding cup when I pressed play on that video clip (yes, I really was eating a pudding cup). You might want to edit the story to warn readers to watch the video clip *after* they read your story - which was excellent.

Lovely friendship story, although I love your slash stories equally as well. And I have to agree with John and Rodney on the subject of blueberries, but for convenience' sake, I planted blueberry bushes in my backyard.

I think this is possibly one of your best stories yet. The friendship shines through this so strongly that I think making the story slash would actually have diminished that, even though the possibility for slash is, as you mentioned, very clear. But all the little details: how comfortable John and Rodney are physically, how they can tease each other verbally and physically, John's attentiveness and Rodney's concern - all those combine to make this feel incredibly realistic and true.

I love the e-mails, I love Sheppard's explanation for why Rodney has been so remiss about getting in touch with Jeannie, and I especially love the bit at the end where Rodney gets all sniffly. I love this story!
Chapter 1: Chapter 1 of 1

Summary: Contains spoilers for the episode "The Return Part 1." Based off a prompt from tipsywitch who asked for Egyptian cotton sheets - I got the cotton sheets, but the Egyptian eluded me! Title comes from this quote from Orson Welles: "We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone." Summary: He'd wanted this for so long, all those nights in Atlantis, but had never dared reach for it.

I finally got around to reading this! The switch of POV between McKay, Sheppard, Zelenka and Carson gives a deeper, more complete feel than if you had only used McKay and Sheppard. I loved Rodney's single-mindedness in his need to return to Jayko, and the way he was momentarily stilled by John's promise to accompany him if he still wanted to go after the chip was removed. The references to Koschka's early story in which John was "chipped" by Chaya were pleasing and very appropriate.

To cut a long review short, I really enjoyed this story. It made a long day seem a little shorter. And hopefully it won't take me so long to get to the next story in the series!
