Summary: "If he closes his eyes he'll picture John above him and the ceiling lights above them both, and he'll be able to see how that light slides over John, loving him like all the rest of Atlantis does." [Set during 3.10 "The Return I"]

This is wonderful, upon re-reading too.
Chapter 2: Cynosure

Summary: John Sheppard has learned a lot of things in his relatively short life, but there's only one thing he really knows, and that is that there are two kinds of people in this world: people who wear pants because they want to, and people who wear pants because they have to.

This is so, so awesome upon re-reading; I love your voices, the dynamics, your humour - with one exception: may I suggest you replace "retarded" with another word? From what I gather, it's incredibly offensive, and I fear US or UK readers might be kept from enjoying this story the way it should be (I'm German, so I don't understand the linguistics behind this, but trust me, it's a big campaign to end the usage of this word).
Chapter 1: One Leg at a Time

Summary: A serious injury for John pushes Rodney's feelings to the fore. Can he win John over? Straight!John fic :)

I know, YEARS too late, but I have to comment and tell you that whoa, I enjoyed this.

Author's Response: Better late than never, as they say. I\'m glad people are still stumbling across this fic. I\'m even happier that you enjoyed it :).\r\n\r\nLaura.

Wow -- who are you, and why have I never heard of you before? This is a gorgeous story, and one that I've been looking for all along: solid character dynamics, a Sheppard who accepts if not without minor freak-outs, hot sex, and a supporting cast that, well, is supporting and well-drawn. Thank you so much for this.

I've compiled a list of SGA Genderswitch stories; maybe you'd like to take a look? I will recommend this your story there:

Author's Response: Wow, thanks! I've written lots of slash, but mainly in Due South fandom, although I have a few Smallville and Sentinel stories to my credit as well. Thanks for the URL - I'll definitely check out your page! I'm glad you liked the story!

I love everything about this - your character voices, the dynamics, the humour you imbue the story with. Lovely job, and the John you give us is particularly compelling.
Chapter 1: Shiny Things

Summary: Based on the movie Pretty Woman, but with an SGA twist. The title is based, in case you didn't know, on a song from the soundtrack.

Hngh. Re-reading old faves: this is fantastically hot.
Chapter 1: 1/1

Summary: The bar-hopping thing isn't Rodney's "scene", but a random encounter with a stranger still sounds pretty good.

Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Chapter 1: Where We've Been Before

Summary: He's always been like this, unable to deal properly with a situation cold, needing the flood of adrenaline through his system to be able to plan and act effectively. It's what makes him a good solider and an excellent pilot; the ability to focus when everything around him is going to hell.

I really, really love this 'verse - and wow, Vegas came early! Kudos to you.

Author's Response: It\'s funny you should say that--I actually haven\'t seen Vegas yet but when I saw the promos for it, I had to say I noticed the similarities...:-) You really made me smile here--thank you!

Oh, I liked this--just a jump to the left, in two more devastated universes, but you make it feel all right by the end.

Author's Response: Oh yay! That was the feeling I was going for! Thank you.
Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Summary: "You are being ridiculous," Teyla said sternly. "The Blue Moon Ball is a wonderful opportunity to be reunited with old friends and to celebrate our continued survival against the Wraith." "Yes," Rodney said under his breath. "Not being dead: an excellent reason to make ourselves wish we were."

I re-read this just now, and oh, it's just as funny, sweet, and spot-on as the first time I read. The ending in particular is perfect (but so is the beginning, and the middle).
