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.

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).
