Started writing fiction for Star Trek: Enterprise about a year and a half ago. Got into Stargate: Atlantis when the series went into US syndie earlier this year.

I seem to have a tendency to arrive late to these parties.

I've written my first Atlantis fics 01/06. Nervously posting them here. You can find the ST: Enterprise stuff I've written at: http://entstcommunity.org/

Great! I love McKay here. "Bridge" indeed, what a cocky b*stard.

Wow. The bit with Rodney worrying the bandage on his hand was masterful. Really well done, chilling. Good God. I like that all is not yet wrapped up neatly and tied with a pretty bow. After all, in real life, there would be repercussions to all that has happened. Well done.

Great teaser.
Chapter 1: Teaser

Summary: He's surprised he's not already dead. Or maybe he is dead. Maybe Rodney's little pockets of universes and multi-verses, which he talks about with such glee, all hold the ashes of a John Sheppard that didn't even make it this far.

Spoils season one.

Oh, interesting approach. Very good. Strong end.
Chapter 1: A Pocketful of Ashes

Summary: Rodney claimed he would have figured it out eventually, that he was a genius, and it was only a matter of time and - if case John hadn't noticed - he'd been a little busy saving Atlantis from imminent doom of one sort or another, so excuse the hell out of him if he wasn't actually aware that the head of Atlantis's military was pining away with big gay love for him.

Wow. The tension! I liked this very much. You have John and Rodney's voices down. Nice use of humour.
Chapter 1: Part 1: Movie Night

I could smell the spices, feel the dry air on my cheeks, the silk against my legs, the feel of the brush against my skin. Richly detailed world, very well drawn, that made this story feel all the more vital and real.

I very much liked that it wasn't that they all went back to Atlantis and "went back to life on the show". There was no happy ending there.

Well written, deeply textured story. Beautiful and horrible, both.
Chapter 1: The Market

Summary: Later, John isn't sure how it happened, or even why exactly.

This made me smile. And one of the things I liked best about it - well, apart from the writing, and the excellent characterisation - was how hot it was, without actually "showing" anything. I really liked that. Very much my thing.

Summary: "You're a lot more encouraging than my last friendly hallucination," Rodney says.

I very much liked the blurring of hallucination and reality, and I had NO IDEA that John was real. In fact, even once Rodney was "back", I still wondered - and that edge of disbelief made the story all the more enjoyable.

Great ending, too. Nicely done.

Author's Response: Thank you, I\'m so glad I could - well - confuse you! ^_^

Oh, interesting! I liked this. Strong ending as well. Loved what Rodney said, and John's reaction.

Aww... sweet. I do feel bad for poor Jennifer, though. Nice story.

Author's Response: Thanks! I felt bad for her too. She\'ll find someone better for her, I\'m sure of it.
